The elevator opens into the Penthouse's entry way which has a stone floor. Here you will find an empty closet for you to hang your clothes and store your belongings and purchases! The kitchen and living room are located on this level as well as 1 of the 2 full bathrooms. My favorite room is on this floor as well, a bedroom I refer to as the Library and you can see why from the photos. This bedroom has a queen bed.

About EastVillagePenthouse

I have lived in NYC for almost 30 years and have lived in many areas of Manhattan, but the East Village is my favorite area.

EastVillagePenthouse purchased this townhome in 2014

Why EastVillagePenthouse chose Manhattan

This property is so unique it was hard to resist. I love the openness that the skylights provide and the architectural details that make this a one of a kind property.

What makes this townhome unique

The private roof terrace is a beautiful way to spend a morning or evening. The keyed elevator access makes the penthouse ultra private as does the fact that it is the entire top two floors of the building. It feels like you are in a house.

Outstanding owner, home, and experience!!

  • 5 of 5

A 5-star rating isn't enough to say how wonderful our stay was and how highly we would recommend this property/owner! I truly wish we had more time to spend here and in East Village. The owner was fantastic-she made things as easy as could be with a detailed explanation of what we needed to know. The neighborhood is amazing--so much life flowing through it! The Italian restaruant/pizza parlor directly downstairs was outstanding...and things just got better the more we ventured out! The loft itself is so incredibly comfortable and pleasant-the skylights provided beautiful natural light at the rights times of day. The views from the deck and the kitchen window were just breathtaking. We couldn't have had a better rental/location for the fabulous weekend we spent there. We absolutely hope to be regular return visitors!!

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

Five of us stayed for a weekend and loved the property and location. Owner is easily accessible and accommodated all of our requests! Apartment was clean and nicely appointed. There is no shortage of small and accessible restaurants and bars for blocks starting right outside the door. It was very nice to sit on the terrace and quietly wind down after a busy day or have coffee in the morning! Would definitely recommend this location!

New York vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience in New York! We loved the penthouse and all that it had to offer. Most night we enjoyed dinner on the patio taking in New York's sights and sounds. It was nice to have two bathrooms especially with a large group of people. I loved the idea of my family being together in one place. It is close to the subway which we used throughout our trip. It was a memorable family vacation.

East Village Penthouse

  • 3 of 5

Unit is much, much smaller than advertised. it obviously is not a residence (no closets, etc.). A/C is marginal at best, a big deal in the summer months. Furnishings are early IKEA, not even motel 6 grade. One bedroom has less than 5' ceiling height that slopes down to 3 1/2 feet. Otherwise it was clean, in a decent/quiet neighborhood, and everything worked.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. The penthouse is on 2 full floors so SF is the combination of the 2. The A/C was upgraded immediately after it was first brought to my attention that it was no longer sufficient, which was right after your stay. The furnishings are an eclectic mix of antiques, custom made and designer pieces and some IKEA shelving. The ceiling in one bedroom does slope (as pictured) but the actual ceiling is much higher than you noted. There are closets (as other reviewers have noted) so I am very bewildered by that whole statement. I am always upgrading based on feedback from guests as my goal is to provide the best experience possible to all my guests and fortunately I have a long history of very positive 5 star reviews. Thank you for your stay.

Perfect neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

My brother, sister and I stayed here for a week. Then went to Queens for 3 days. Had we known the difference, we would have stayed the entire time in the East Village. We love the neighborhood!!! Everything is so close. The subway just a couple blocks away. The elevator to the penthouse was fantastic after a long day of walking. The beds were not as comfortable as we are use to but they were adequate. I would move the oversize plant and replace with another comfortable seat and I would re position the bed in the upstairs bedroom, the ceiling is super low so it would have been nice to be able to walk on the high side. We did water the plants while we were there. The owner is very accommodating and responsive. We did not have to wait to check in or out. She had someone meet us promptly at the agreed upon times. I would love to come stay again. I would have given a five but the beds need to be more comfortable for a five rating. Thank you Toni, you have certainly been true to your word.

Owner's Response: I am so happy you enjoyed your stay, especially since you planned your trip over a year ago! I am surprised to hear you found the bed to be adequate- because guests usually mention how comfortable they are in reviews, but everyone has different preferences and perhaps you prefer a super firm mattress to a pillow top. Thank you for your stay and I hope to see you again soon!

overall a positive experience

  • 4 of 5

Great location and patio. Nice and quiet but close to tons of everything. Owner was responsive and very nice. Drawbacks were a rickety bed in the library (low ceiling), air co in living room wasn't sufficient to cool it down and while New York isn't about having a tv a handful of channels was a bit frustrating. Bath towels need a step up too. Bottom line is a few dollars need to be spent and this place would be great!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay and feedback. There are over 150 cable channels available so I am not sure why you had a problem but you should have reached out to me and I would have been glad to help. The A/C unit in the living room is being replaced with a more powerful one. Towels/Linens are completely replaced every other month. Thank you again!
