SUNNY DREAM - 2 BR East Village!!
Floor No.3(with elevator)
Please do NOT try to book it without sending me a note first!
This is the new 2 BR spacious, modern apartment, located a few blocks from my King Weston, both in the East Village. This posting is for use of an entire private apartment with 2 private bedrooms (sleeps 6 max, ideal for 4), 1 full bathroom with tub, fully stocked kitchen, living room, closets in an elevator building.
NEW PICTURES ARE HERE! The apartment is complete and furnished and freshly painted!
This entire private apartment will sleep 6 comfortably (based on 2 people per bed). There are 2 bedrooms with queen beds and the couch is a pull-out sofa bed.
Surely, you will experience living in a fantastic apartment in NYC while saving a few bucks from pricey NYC hotels that are located in the heart of the tourist frenzy areas in midtown. It's very clean and has things no hotel can offer.
This is available for rentals of 3 nights or more. However, if you are seeking a stay only 1 or 2 nights, it is possible to do so, if it precedes or adds to an existing reservation.
The Building and Neighborhood: It's located on a fairly quiet street across from a school (quiet at night) and a road that has less than average travel. It's about a 2 minute walk to the nearest subway (L Train) and 1 minute to a bus.
The unit has a fully stocked kitchen: full size fridge/freezer, dishwasher, gas stove/oven, microwave, top of the line stainless cookware, utensils, dishware, glassware and decent closet space for luggage and clothing.
The highly desired neighborhood is quite lively after the sun goes down. The East Village has been heavily built up over the last 5-10 years and located on the East side of Manhattan from 14th St down to Houston (same as street zero) which borders the LES (Lower East Side). Tompkins Square Park is 2 blocks away.
The East Village offers over 400 restaurants, cafes, bars, shopping and a beautiful park which has a few playgrounds for kids, basketball courts, dog run and plenty of benches and grassy areas to relax. You can walk to Indian, Russian, Italian, Mexican, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Vegetarian and American restaurants within a 5 block radius. If you're too tired and beat up from touring NYC and don't feel like going anywhere, you can simply order in and have anything delivered to the room (usually until 11 pm or midnight). And these little privately owned restaurants are MUCH better than midtown/tourist-trap food chain places. There are at least three 24/hr places to eat within 2 blocks. About 90% of the buildings in the area are walk-ups and this has an elevator. There are about 50 restaurant/bars/cafe's within a 3 block radius and probably 500 within a 10 block radius.

Reviews for this host's other properties
Bruce was a very accommodating host and welcomed us warmly to New York! Lots of info was provided via e-mail before arriving so that was great.
The room itself was clean and spacious, and East Village is a fantastic location to spend some time and feel like a local in NYC.
If you were hoping to do lots of cooking (we weren't, we were more than happy to eat around New York :D) then the kitchen doesn't offer the best facilities and is quite small, it sits in the small hallway room between the bathroom, your room and Bruce's room.
If you're happy to eat out and want to be in a great local area of New York out of the super tourist area then I definitely recommend Bruce's place!
My boyfriend and I stayed one night at this place. Bruce is a very nice and welcoming person. The room looks exactly like on the picture. However, we didn't spent much time in the room besides sleeping. The place is a little bit far from the subway but the area is actually nice and offers a lot of restaurants and bars.
Thank you to Bruce for this stay. apartment corresponds exactly to the description it is very well located (close trade and transport). Bruce is really someone open and pleasant.
We had a very good stay.
We recommend no problem staying with Bruce.
The place to be! Great area, very close to metro. Great bars and restaurants in this area! Apartment down the street so very quiet! Very comfortable 2. Full breakfast, according to our tastes. Perfect compared to our expectations and needs. Recommended + + + + +!
The place to be!!
Super quartier, métro très proche. Super bars et restos dans ce quartier! Appartement en retrait de la rue donc très calme! Très confortable à 2. Petit déjeuner très complet, conforme à nos goûts. Parfait par rapport à nos attentes et nos besoins. Recommandé +++++!
We had a great time, everything was as expected. Nice apartment, very clean, great neighborhood. Wonderful view from the rooftop terrace which is easily accessible by elevator. Bruce is a great host, very helpful, gave us a lot of useful hints for our stay. Thank you very much!
We highly recommend Bruce! The apartment is fantastic & clean and Bruce is a very funny, friendly and helpful person. We got a lot of useful tips from him, that made our stay in New York City much better!
The view from the roof top over Manhattan is incredible... You have to see that!
Our host was very friendly, very discreet. The location is ideal and nice neighborhood. Against by the website photos do not correspond to the rented room photos are his apartment which we do not have access. However, the room is very nice and well equipped, the kitchen is reduced to a microwave and a small oven.
Notre hôte est très sympathique, très discret.
L'emplacement est idéal et le quartier agréable.
Par contre les photos du site ne correspondent pas à la chambre louée, les photos correspondent à son appartement auquel nous n'avons pas accès.
Toutefois la chambre est très jolie et bien équipée, la cuisine se résume à un micro onde et un petit four.
We had a fabulous stay! Great location, great rooftop view, great place, good space in the apartment and with outdoor patio and also a wonderful host.
Couldn’t have asked for more. And even breakfast included, which made a great start on the day! Would definitely recommend!
Our stay in NYC was great. Before arriving at Bruce's place, he shared useful information with us: how to get there by subway, taxi, whatever. The room was big enough for two and had all it needed: hairdryer, towels, clean sheets, tv, you name it... His appartment is located in a great area. Subway is a 15-minute walk and then you can go wherever you want within less than 30 minutes. The non-touristic (but safe) area is very nice: restaurants, bars, park in front of the appartment.... No need to hesitate to make a booking at Bruce's!
bruce is a very nice and helpful host. we felt home !!!
