*My Review


best way to explore New York and Brooklyn.The location is perfect with

the subway stops just 3 short blocks away.Easy walking distances to

Soho,Tribeca,Chinatown,Nolita,Little Italy,Greenwich Village,the

Highline and even the Brooklyn,Manhattan and Williamsburg bridges to


The East Village location is full of great restaurants,bars and gourmet

delis.Even a well-stocked wine shop just across the street.And downtown

prices are almost half of what you pay in Mid-town restaurants.If you

have a car,street parking is easy and there is even a guy who will move

your car for New York's alternate side of the street parking scheme.

The pictures of the apartment don't do it justice....ground floor access

so no hassle with luggage or shopping.Super high ceilings give a real

sense of spaciousness.

Everything is spanking brand-new(bathrooms,kitchen,appliances,TV,)and

super clean.

Keys were delivered by Fedex once the deposit was paid.Alarm is easy to

operate and the back garden is an incredible bonus in a city like New

York.Every detail was handled by email,including payment.

If you are say,two couples travelling from Europe,the price works out to

be less than 100 euros X person X night...Try to find a Manhattan hotel

for even two,three or four times that price!!!

On our 6 day trip we were able to take in all of the nearby areas I

mentioned above plus Central Park,the Theater District,a boat ride,a day

in Brooklyn,5th avenue and shopping in Chelsea and Century 21 by the

World Trade Center.

The local restaurants,all within a 10 block walk feature EVERYTHING from


Even if it's raining there is a great Italian place (Il Posto)right next

door.In addition,the apartment's "bible" is stocked with suggestions

and flyers from nearby restaurants that deliver in no time.

All in all,an unbeatable and luxurious way to see New York at true

budget prices.What you save on having breakfast(in the garden)instead of

hotel breakfasts will pay for nice dinners!!

Highly Recommended!!!!

Beautifully appointed and perfectly located!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience! After doing extensive research on two bedroom/two bath units in both lower Manhattan and Brooklyn, we selected this fantastic unit. We were in town for our daughter’s wedding and had two of our best friends with us. Everything was as promised. The unit is tastefully decorated with large bedrooms and living areas. The kitchen is enormous with everything you would ever need included.

The enclosed backyard (yes backyard!) is beautifully maintained with colorful plants and plenty of seating. We enjoyed this oasis every afternoon as well as for several breakfasts.

As noted by many reviews, the location is perfect. This is a very quiet unit. It is close to many neighborhood restaurants, the subway, a fantastic grocery store and several bodegas. We really enjoyed the Italian restaurant right next door for dinner upon our arrival, as well as, Cornerstone restaurant, which is just a half block up 2nd street for brunch.

Allison, the property manager, is fantastic! The unit was in immaculate condition and included plenty of paper supplies, towels, etc., ensuring that we didn’t need to run out to supply anything. The keys were sent FedEx well in advance and she contacted us when we arrived at the unit to make sure everything was perfect.

All in all we enjoyed five wonderful days in this beautiful unit. Thank you for everything Allison!

Fabulous Flat!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough positive things about this flat. It's the perfect Lower East Side location! Steps away from everything this wonderful neighborhood has to offer including one of the highest rated Italian restaurants in the city right next door. It's a convenient walk to everything you will need: pharmacy, several grocery shopping options, bodega's, liquor and did I mention the restaurants? Wow! The flat was quite large and spacious with two full baths and walk in closets! There's a washer and dryer in the unit and a fully outfitted (and huge) kitchen. Four adults were very happy! ****** Five stars! Liz L., Portland, OR

Wonderful Stay in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) had a wonderful stay in this lovely apartment. It was really spacious (definitely by NY standards) with 2 good sized bedrooms in the back, facing the garden. We slept well since we weren't bothered by street noise or loud neighbors in the street. The bathrooms were very clean and had everything we needed for a short stay, including really nice plush towels, soap, shampoo, etc. The entire apartment was well-maintained and very clean. It was so nice to have 2 bedrooms And 2 bathrooms. While we didn't cook in the apartment, the kitchen was very spacious and well stocked so that you could easily cook. The living room was cozy for relaxing at the end of day. We really felt at home and comfortable in this apartment.

The location was great with lots of restaurants just down the street or within a few blocks. I really enjoyed a little matcha cafe nearby (great matcha lattes). We walked to the subway and could get to places around the city easily. We also walked over to Soho for shopping, a bit of a walk, but not too bad. I loved feeling like a local and not a tourist in this neighborhood.

I would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to stay again the next time we're in NY.

Perfect apartment exceeding our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Often in life when something seems to be too good to be true it is. This apartment was the exception to that rule even better than we had hoped; it was pretty much perfect in every detail. Apartment was gorgeous, clean, gourmet kitchen, quiet, spacious, nicely furnished, comfy beds, unbelievably nice patio, great neighborhood. Walking distance to Katz deli and Supper for dinner. Close to subways. This is the part of Manhattan you want to be in. Avion was great to work with, easy to contact. Would highly recommend to family and friends and hope to stay there again on another visit to wonderful NY.
