Wonderfully bright, nicely furnished 400-square-foot West Village studio in an elevator building on one of the best blocks in Manhattan. I've lived here for a long time and I still love coming home to this space. Just out the door are many of New York's best bars and restaurants, and prettiest streets. Inside is a peaceful haven from the city, with high ceilings, windows in the main bed/living room, kitchen, and bathroom. Everything is here to help enjoy an amazing visit to this city!

The space

I've lived in this apartment for a while and I think it's an amazing place to stay: It gets tons of light from windows in the main room, kitchen area, and bathroom, has enough space for 1 person or a couple, and is in a location that is convenient to many subway lines (minutes walk to the 1,2,3,9 and A,C,E, B,D,F,V subway lines). You will be surrounded by the best bars and restaurants in New York and enjoy great furnishings and appliances inside (Roche-Bobois couch, Ekornes Chair, Big Panasonic Plasma HDTV, Large Apple Thunderbolt Display, DVD player, Tivo, Digital Cable, Ultra High-Speed Internet, etc.).

The rental includes everything: digital cable (with HBO and Showtime), very high speed wireless internet (100 mbps), heat, air conditioning, electricity and all other utilities. There's no smoking in the apartment. I will only rent to one person or a couple, no more than that.

The place is clean and neat so please be someone who can maintain this. Everyone who has ever stayed here has loved this apartment. You will too.

Note: Please contact me and let me know a bit about who you are, where you're coming from, what you're doing here, how many people you are, etc. before booking. Sorry for that inconvenience, but I want to know some info about you before accepting your offer.

Tom's studio is on one of the best blocks in Manhattan and couldn't have been better for what I needed. I stayed for about three weeks while I was looking for permanent accommodation and the area is unbelievable. Right in the heart of West Village, really well connected, a great layout of the studio itself that makes it feel much bigger than it is, and totally seamless communication with Tom. I would recommend the studio to anyone and wouldn't hesitate to stat again.

Tom was very responsive and helpful, despite being overseas, throughout my entire stay at his place. Great location in West Village. Can't beat the value.

Tom's place is cozy and perfect for an easy escape to NYC. His West Village location is unbeatable. It was clean, and the bed was super comfortable. Despite the expansive array of cooking utensils and pots and pans, there was no coffee machine! I like to have coffee immediately when I open my eyes, BUT there is very good coffee literally everywhere in the area. Tom also has probably 20 Lonely Planets scattered throughout his apartment that are awesome to peruse.

Absolutely fantastic place! It was cost and a lot bigger than I expected. Very cool studio and the location is perfect. I fell in love with the area I was in, it definitely is a great apartment for one to two people and if I'm ever in New York again I would definitely rent out Tom's place again. He was also very accommodating and made sure I settled in, had everything I need and did check up on me. Great experience especially as it was my first Airbnb experience.

I spent a month at Tom's place and had a fantastic stay. Tom was very friendly and communicative throughout the whole process, and went out of his way to make sure the check in and check out went smoothly. The apartment itself is pretty well laid out and in a phenomenal location - surrounded by lovely restaurants, bars and shops, and very close to various subway lines, but still rather quiet (for downtown NYC). Overall, it was a great experience.

Tom's apartment was a perfect place to stay while I was looking for housing. The apartment was in a great location and he provided excellent tips for the surrounding neighborhood. It was a clean, cozy place with great character and was overall a fantastic experience.
