Bright studio apartment with great views in the heart of the West Village, on a quiet street 1 minute away from where all the action is. Dozens of famous restaurants, bars, jazz clubs and shops around the corner, most subway lines 2-5 minutes away.
The apartment is on Charles St, one of the most sought-after addresses in Manhattan. Most sights and museums you'll want to see are reachable within 20-25 minutes. You can stroll down Christopher Street to the Hudson River Park in 5 minutes. Sarah Jessica Parker lives across the street, in case you are into celebrity spotting.
Since I moved in recently, most of the furniture is brand new. There is a queen-sized bed, a sofa-bed, a TV-stand, a table, two chairs and shelves. The bathroom has a bath tub, and it's as bright as the main room, thanks to a skylight.
There is a fire-escape that I tend to use as a balcony. Since the apartment is on the 5th floor, you'll have a view of the neighboring rooftops and treetops. When the leaves are gone you can also see the Empire State Building and other skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan.
The kitchen is equipped with plates, glasses, mugs and cutlery, and there are a few pots and pans and basic equipment for cooking. There is a fridge, a combined oven/microwave and a moca pot for making coffee.
The TV is a brand new flat-screen LCD/LED Samsung. I have an HDMI cable that you can use to connect your laptop. I've got Wi-Fi that you are welcome to use. You can also use my iron, ironing board and hair dryer.
I'll provide you with sheets, blankets and towels.
Interaction with guests
Depending on when you will arrive I will give you the keys in person, or I will ask a friend to do so. Same goes for the departure. If it simplifies the logistics I may consider mailing keys over to you. I will be travelling while you are using the apartment, but most days you will be able to reach me via e-mail.
Other things to note
The apartment is on the 5th floor of a walk-up, so it is not suitable for the elderly.
The residents of the building are long term tenants, who I need to get along with, so it is essential to be considerate, polite and quiet. Please don't apply if you are planning to listen to loud music, get seriously drunk, or if you want to have people over.
No smoking or pets are allowed.
