Stay in our modern apartment located in the coolest part of the East Village/Lower East Side. We are located on a bustling & lively street filled with bars, restaurants, shops, and more--you name it and we've got it. Next to all subways/taxis/buses!

The space

The apartment is a sun drenched 14 foot high ceiling art deco apartment with hip furniture, a comfy living space and full kitchen. You will have access to the TV and music speakers for your iPhone/iPod. There is a fridge for you to store food in, and a bathroom with fresh towels, soap, and shampoo for you to use. Dry Cleaning/Laundry is just downstairs and you can drop it off and pick it up or do it yourself.

You'll have your own cozy room and access to the entire apartment minus the owners room. Your room has a full bed, shelves, and a closet.

We are located right on a very central part of downtown New York on the border of the East Village and Lower East Side--neighborhoods that have given legendary downtown Manhattan it's bohemian, young, hip vibe. One of the best bar/restaurants is right downstairs (great brunch) and we are literally seconds away from major food destinations, shops, galleries, parks and so much more.

Note: the bar/restaurant downstairs is quiet during the weekday and we have a friendly relationship with the owner. That being said he is running a business so Friday and Saturday nights plus holidays will be busy and you may hear faint base in the background; it's never been an issue with our guests so far but we want to warn you in case you are super noise sensitive.

The subway is right down the block and taxis, buses, etc. are right outside! We are only one flight up!

Guest access

We want you to feel at home and feel like you're living breathing and loving the city as much as we get to every day! We can help you with your itinerary each morning no problem. We also have a 42 inch flat screen TV, speakers for your iPod, and Netflix and a ChromeCast that you can use.

Interaction with guests

You will be staying with a super hospitable couple who know the city like the back of their hand. One is a young professional and the other is a yogi. We can arrange a private yoga lesson or can recommend studios nearby if you would like to practice. We love to host, make friends from all over the world, and swap traveling stories. We have traveled around the world and continue to do so each year. We promise to make your stay not only comfortable and homely but informative, helpful, and your most memorable!

My fiancee speaks French and I speak a tiny bit of Italian which is an FYI for our European friends.

Please don't be surprised if you meet some of our neighbors! We have a bunch of friendly people in our building and sometimes they pop by to say hello :). Fridays-Sunday don't be surprised if we have a couple friends over for a drink and invite you to join us! Most weekends are quiet for us--if anything we have board game night. We're in our 30s but we still love to have fun and encourage you to do nothing but have the best time as our very special guest!

Other things to note

This is the absolutely hands down best location and apartment in New York. We are also conveniently located near brooklyn which is just a short cab or bike ride away. The F train can take you to historic Park Slope and can also take you to trendy Williamsburg off of the L train line.

Note: we live above a bar! While it doesn't seem to bother people I like to note this so folks know in advance!

Not safe or suitable for children (0-12 years)
Check in is anytime after 2PM

No smoking inside but you can do it outside no problem.

No pets. We love animals but are cautious of pets since we have expensive art and furniture around the apartment. Exceptions can be made, of course, if the pet is used as an aide.

We expect our guests to be mature and not to throw and parties or bring in outside guests into our home. Again, under certain circumstances this may be permitted (e.g. mother is in town and is dropping by). In general we like to maintain a peaceful atmosphere. There are PLENTY of other options for partying outside of our apartment including the bar and restaurant downstairs. The owners are amazing and they serve wonderful food and drinks.

No shoes in the house! We have a shoe section by the apartment door for you to place shoes in.

The flat is in East Village which is a vibrant, easily accessible area in Manhattan. You will be spoiled for choice with the abundance of cool cafes, restaurants and bars. My favourite restaurant was The Punjab Grocery located just a minute away from the flat, they do amazing vegetarian food, being a Punjabi myself I can definitely vouch for authenticity! My favourite cafe was 'WhyNot' which was recommended by Charlie, they have a super sound system, friendly staff and a fast wiFi connection. The flat itself was spotless and it was a pleasure to return home to after a long day exploring the city. Vicky and Charlie are bright, kind and a good laugh. Their positivity rubs off on others. I had a great time in their company and hanging out with them was one of the highlights of my time in NYC. I would definitely recommend to others planning to stay in New York

Vicky and Charlie are incredible hosts- welcoming, friendly and true New Yorkers indeed. Very accommodating, my flight landed early in the morning and they welcomed me into their home before 9am on a Sunday morning. The neighbourhood is hip and trendy and offers an authentic New York experience- far away from the bright lights of Times Square and the common tourist areas- but close enough to cabs/subway/uber so that you can get pretty much anywhere in 20 - 30 mins. Lots of eating and entertainment options within walking distance including Chinatown and Little Italy. Highly recommended!

Vicky and Charlie were great hosts! I was lucky to find their listing before my trip. Great location in East Village and it was nice to explore plus near the train stations! The bed was super comfy and they were very helpful with recommendations on things to do and making sure I was comfortable. If I come back to NYC, I would stay here again :) Thank you!

Vicky and Charlie manage to make a house a home. This is a great place to stay - well located near major transport links and in walking distance to some of the best bars and restaurants in town. Not only were the hosts welcoming but they were also willing to provide support and advice me as I try to get set up in a new place nearby. Can't recommend the place enough!
