Not to mention full access to a spacious and sunlit living room & fully stocked kitchen. This apartment is on the 2nd floor of an elevator/door man building. Please read on...
Hi! Below is a detailed description of our 3 bedroom, 2 bedroom apartment. We hope that most of your questions will be answered but can help with any specifics. More importantly, we look forward to the possibility of hosting you!
Our calendar is always up to date (no need to ask)
PRICING & MINIMUM STAY:
Pricing varies based on day of week and month of year. Our standard minimum number of nights is 4, but we actively change it based on availability and other bookings. If you have a special request, we are happy to entertain shorter stays, so feel free to contact us.
LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION:
Our apartment is in the heart of Nolita (directly east of SoHo, in the center of Lower Manhattan), which has quickly become NYC’s most sought after neighborhood. If you’re not familiar with it, Airbnb’s description is spot on:
"As the trendiest little neighborhood you're still hearing about, Nolita combines the sophisticated allure of designer boutiques with the simple pleasure of people-watching from front stoops. This fashionable and friendly neighborhood is composed of narrow streets, picture-perfect window displays, and sidewalk cafes that invite you to indulge in a cup of fine espresso. Easily walkable and cozily quaint, Nolita faces no competition when it comes to cool hotspots."
Nolita has a unique look and feel that makes it worth the highest real estate prices in the city. But why pay $500+ for a hotel in Nolita, or $350+ to be 10 minutes away? Stay with us for a suite 2x the size, access to a beautifully appointed apartment (more on that below), and good company/local knowledge :)
Don’t expect to see big name brands and the typical 5th Avenue / Broadway retailers. Nolita is home to one of a kind restaurants & bars, designer boutiques, tiny galleries, and niche shopping destinations; you’ll find countless options that feel like hidden gems. There are 2 michelin star restaurants on our block!
Of course, when you are ready to venture out to other areas of Manhattan, we are also very central located and minutes from all of the best neighborhoods in the city: SoHo, Lower East Side, Little Italy, West Village, Meatpacking, Union Square, Greenwich Village, East Village etc. Several major subway/metro lines are just a few minutes walk away (6, N R, B, D, F, M, J, Z), and the nearby Williamsburg Bridge allows you to explore Brooklyn with ease.
Our apartment is on the second floor of an elevator building with a part-time doorman (8am - midnight). There is an interior courtyard, a garden with benches, and lighting in all of the hallways/stairwells. On our block is the Elizabeth Street Garden, providing a nice escape for lunch, reading a book, or sunbathing, complete with grass, gardens, tables and chairs.
The unit is a 3 bedrooms 2 bathroom condo, and at 1,100 square feet, it’s large for Nolita (and New York for that matter). A long hallway leads from the front door to the living/common room, which dominates the floor plan at 23 x 16 feet. There is a large couch, two side chairs, a reading chair, and a dining room table with seating for 4.
The kitchen is galley style and has all of the essentials, along with a french press and aero press for making the perfect coffee. We are happy to provide access to everything, including the refrigerator, but would prefer guests to keep cooking to a minimum.
The master bedroom is straight down another hallway, past the common bathroom, and towards the back of the apartment.
The master suite has a queen sized bed (Sealy Beautyrest), 2 empty closets, a large chest of drawers (all 6 are empty), a desk with storage & USB outlets, luggage racks, a local guidebook, air conditioner, fan, and luggage racks. We've made it as easy as possible for our guests to unpack and settle into their new home.
The bathroom is newly renovated, has 2 empty drawers & empty medicine cabinet, and comes with all of the essentials: soap, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer, toilet paper, etc.
Please note: this is a 3/4 bath with a shower - there is no bathtub. For some reason the bathtub was installed in the common bathroom (you're welcome to use it if need be).
TOWELS / SHEETS:
Each guest is provided with a bath towel, hand towel, wash cloth, and the bed will always have a fresh change of sheets. If you want a clean change during your stay, we'll leave that up to you.
Travelers, couples, and professionals. As long as you're respectful, we'll get along great!
We are two friends (male), ages 33 and 34, that work on our own startups and share the master suite of our 3 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment with family, friends, and Airbnb.
We love traveling, meeting new people, keeping a clean and tidy apartment, and good conversation. Although we work from home, our desks are in our bedrooms (we work long days/nights), and we are out and about on a regular basis.
Note: There’s always a good chance that one of us is traveling. In that event, a friend or another Airbnb guest may stay in the other's bedroom, or it will simply go vacant (more likely the latter).
All of the common spaces, although we do expect you to use your ensuite bathroom (unless you really need a bath!).
Once your reservation is confirmed, you'll receive detailed instructions on how to get in and out during your stay.
NOTE: you do not have to plan on arriving at any particular time after the 4pm check-in - you'll be able to let yourself in on your own, following the instructions that will be provided.
Early and late checkin requests are subject to an additional fee based on availability.
We are friends, so yes, we hang out in the living room. Often times it's to watch a TV show, or to eat lunch/dinner...and then it's back to work in our bedrooms (or out with friends). Most weeknights we'll be working well into the evening. On the weekends we make the most of what NYC has to offer. We want you to feel welcome, and you're more than welcome to join us. You're our guest, and we hope you make yourself at home and utilize the common space (and get to know us if you're so inclined).
We're more than happy to offer local suggestions, or perhaps even take you out on the town!
Although we are guys, we are very clean, tidy, and organized (perhaps even a little OCD :) All that we ask is that our guests treat the apartment as if it were their own...and we'll do our best to set a good example!
We ask that you 1) don't smoke in the apartment or out the windows, 2) don't bring back unexpected guests, and 3) be respectful of late night noise.
