Property description

Elegant, romantic, cosmopolitan, large, high-ceiling, sunny, full-floor townhouse apartment with huge private deck; warm & inviting; north-south exposure; perfect downtown location; in most exciting, most centrally-located neighborhood in Manhattan filled with historic charm & great restaurants - from superb Northern Italian cuisine to celebrity-chef hot-spots, all on one tree-lined, set-back, sunny block in the Village; half block from subway exit and with Citi Bike on each end of the block.

Short-term rental of beautiful, *full* parlor floor (which means it is raised above the street about ten steps) with walnut-oak flooring, ten-foot Breakfast-at-Tiffany's mirrors & black Italian marble hearths, of registered landmark West (Greenwich) Village brownstone townhouse w/ lots of light, 700 sq-ft, well-furnished, elegant, warm & comfortable apt, large b/r w/ queen-sized bed, very small but complete kitchen, beautiful bathroom, exclusive/private 400 sq-foot southern-exposure, finished terrace off living room (eastside of terrace shares a support-beam with restaurant's ventilation fan so some noise & vibration).

Rent includes all taxes, utilities, electricity, insurance, incoming phone, WiFi/Internet. Check-in is 6 p.m. and check-out 3 p.m.



Cleaning fees are the only other cost of your stay, one exit-cleaning regardless of period ($99 minimum); and one required every three weeks of stay; no other fees, taxes or hidden charges. However, *please* note that there is a $1K security deposit. This is returned with within a week of your exit. I understand that this is not standard, but the furnishings in the apartment require it. E.g., if you stay six months, there is a rental fee and a $1000 deposit from which $99 will be deducted for one cleaning. For 8 months the rental fee would double, but the deposit and cleaning deduction would be the same.

Situated on the most beautiful, set-back, tree-lined, dynamic, super-safe block in the West or Greenwich Village.

Private unlisted phone; a/c front & back; fax (outbound only); full stereo, HDTV, DVD/Blu-Ray/VCR (no cable, just broadcast TV), flat-panel PC w/ Internet via Ethernet or WiFi; nearby laundry and postal/shipping services; excellent access to Citi Bike, express/lcl subways (1-2-3-9-F-L-M), PATH trains, and Penn Sta./LIRR/AMTRAK.

A minimum 6-month stay is required.

We are taking selective reservations through the end of 2017; thank you very much for your consideration. We value and welcome your visit. Guests from all corners of the world have been enjoying the apartment for 15 years before HomeAway started.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (you can safely skip this section)

1. Are there more pictures?

We've limited the number of pictures because we have found that it was better to put the rooms particulars in the 'Details' tab. There are no additional photographs to send.

2. Is there laundry in the building?

There are no facilities in the building; there may actually be laws against that in brownstones in the City. The easiest is to either drop-off, or have picked up for free at the apartment, your laundry for wash-and-fold by Little J Cleaners. They will also deliver for free.

3. Why do you charge separately for cleaning? Why not fold it into the price?

The number of cleanings required varies by length of stay & the amount may vary by depth of cleaning needed. Also, the cleaning fee simply goes directly to the cleaning company & is determined by them.

4. Can I pay with a credit card?


5. Anything else I should know before my inquiry?

Yes, one thing, and to my potential future guests, please do not be put off by this, but, please, do not ask me what the best price I can offer you is. It starts the communication off on the wrong foot. There are no negotiations about price; the accommodations are being offered at excellent rates & at my average cost (NYC is crazy expensive) ; all times & rates are fixed. Also, all information you need for price & availability is here on this site. So, please, navigate HomeAway's excellent facility, & I am hopeful we'll be able to host you for a great New York holiday!


We had a great 5 night stay in this delightful apartment. First off the location is excellent; a beautiful tree lined neighbourhood street with some great restaurants including one just downstairs and only a couple of blocks from the activity of west village. Secondly the apartment is wonderfully sized, high ceilings, great light, wooden floors, good sized bed, ample dining table, small but equipped kitchen and bathroom, tastefully decorated, generous space and perfect for a couple. Thirdly the big terrace which is private to the apartment is a fabulous feature in the middle of New York city and is perfect for breakfast and taking the sun as the sun hits the deck from morning through to midday - it was a great treat. Fourthly the owner Scott made the whole renting and settling in experience seamless - all done electronically apart from key handover - and is well prepared with tips for area and house info. This was our first time renting a place rather than a hotel and we will definitely do it again. It was wonderful to have the feeling of 'coming home' after work meetings/tourism/dinners/theatre and I appreciated the privacy of having an apartment. I highly recommend the experience and specifically this place - it went beyond our expectations in terms of comfort, ease and enjoyment.
June 2013

My partner and I stayed in Scott's greenwich village apartment in May. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The apartment was spacious and well equipped thankfully very quiet as most days it was a welcomed retreat from the city mahem! Scott was so helpful bringing forward our check in time at short notice, helping us to book show tickets prior to arrival and e-mailing us with lots of useful tips and recommendations for good places to eat etc.His contact was helpful but never intrusive. The biggest plus to the apartment is the decking area, it is beautiful during the day if a little noisy at night because of the restaurant downstairs had a large extractor right outside the back door. It was fine though definately did not dampen our spirits. The area is fabulous lots to do and see with a great laid back feel. I believe this apartment gets booked out fairly surprisingly, so book well in advance and enjoy the unique NYC experience. Thanks Scott.

This place is amazing in the perfect location! The apartment has everything that you could possible need and is incredibly comfortable. For those that are not familiar with the City, this really is the ideal neighborhood to stay in. The street is very safe and quiet, close to the subway and within walking distance of the best restaurants and shopping Scott was a great host making sure I was well taken care of. When I emailed him questions, he responded immediately. The patio out back is gorgeous and so rare in NYC. I can't wait to return in warmer weather so I can use it. I would absolutely recommend this place to everyone!

WONderful apartment! Clean and very quiet (for New York, anyway) and in a fantastic location. The apartment was very hot, but that is no fault of Scott's because you can't control the temperature in the unit itself. Scott is the best.... communicates on a timely basis; met us at the apartment and gave us the lay of the land; and followed up to make sure all was OK. And the fresh flowers were a real treat!!!!

The apartment is really 'cosy' and the neighborhood fascinating.

Awesome place. Great location. Porch is great! Scott is a great host.

Scott was a great host. Not only did he accommodate our extremely late arrival, but also made sure he shared some of his favourite haunts in the local area. The apartment is very charming. It's an old brownstone, so comes with its own idiosyncrasies and quirks, such as a tiny, but very functional kitchen and a bathroom which works beautifully but is a little cranky. However, it's very spacious, extremely comfortable (very comfortable bed, which is super important) and even has a lovely outside space - and it's in a great location. If you're looking for the 'real charm' of New York instead of slick modernity, give Scott's place a whirl.

Very charming place. Location is unbeatable! Scott went above and beyond what was needed, even sending us suggestions on eating places for my husband who has food allergies.

Just like the pictures! A great place for me to come and rest my head amidst all of the NYFW madness! Scott was very helpful and communicative both leading up to and during my stay there... even responding to a 2am request to extend my stay by a day! (I just needed one more stay in NYC!)

I travel to NYC very often and this past February I decided to stay at this place for the first time.
What to say: gorgeous apartment, great location and the host is really nice. I definitely recommend it!

Additional information about rental rates


  • Refundable Damage Deposit $1,000
  • Cleaning/Laundry/Ins Fee $99


Rates are based on 1-2 person occupancy. 3 people maximum and must rent additional fold-out bed as well as pay 1.5 times guest fee.

Rentals are welcome for any time period EXCEPT 3 nights after or before existing rentals, unless your desired say is two weeks or greater.

In other words, if the apartment is available on Night 0 (for example, a Tuesday night), we would gladly host you starting Night 0 or Night 1 or Night 2 (in this example, Thursday night). The apartment would not be available Night 3 (here, Friday night), but would be next available Night 5 (here, Saturday night). And the same would be true for departure.

We know this is a but unusual and complex, but our pricing is so close to our costs, that leaving three nights, which are unrentable given our minimum, will mean we will actually lost money hosting you, our otherwise extremely welcome guest.

All rates fixed, there are no "better," "best," "discount," or "special" rates. Booking of the calendar is for nights. Thus, if the 16th available & the 17th not, that means the apartment is available until 3 p on the 17th.

Please note that check-in is 6p & check-out 3p.

Cleaning exit fee, regardless of period ($99 minimum < 3 weeks); plus an additional cleaning must be done every two (2) weeks for the USD99 minimum.

$1K separate security deposit receives 4% p.a. interest & 2-day return on my side; we do not have control over how long your bank or credit card company will take to release the funds.

Owner's cancellation policy:

50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.

100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
