Rachel a été une hôte prévenante et nous a très bien reçu. Nous nous sommes sentis comme chez nous dans ce superbe appartement, idéalement situé dans Manhattan. Si vous êtes 2, c'est l'endroit où il faut être. Les autres appartements sont souvent taillés pour une famille complète…

Clean and stylish light-filled 1BR loft apartment (900 sf) in a small historic building, complete with a sweet resident cat. High ceilings, mellow vibe, best for a couple or solo adult. Prime location near Madison Park. Featured in The Guardian October 2011!

Le logement

*** no film shoots***

Beautiful light-filled space, perfect for one or two adults. One block from Madison Park. The kind of place that makes you want to stay home at least one night :-) Brand new mattress and soundproof windows in the bedroom.

***There is a sweet little cat in the apartment. Read her reviews! She makes it feel like home. You will have no litter duties, just need to feed her 2x day. But guests MUST be cat friendly.***

GENERAL FEATURES: The vibe is warm but modern, and the ten foot ceilings make it feel even more expansive. Intercom and buzzer, keyed elevator, accessible stairs (apt is on 4th fl). All windows are double-hung with privacy shades that allow you to enjoy the abundant sunshine. All lights are on dimmers - nothing harsh or industrial.

There are original art prints throughout the apartment and a 1936 Sohmer "Cupid" grand piano that you can play at any hour thanks to the thick walls. Air conditioning is adjustable and silent, with separately controlled units in living room and bedroom; heat can be augmented too but that's rarely necessary. It's a split-level system which means no big ugly units in the windows.

There is no TV in the apartment! But there is a fantastic stereo, a 27" retina iMac, high-speed wireless internet, and a very entertaining cat (laser toy included). A big stack of take-out menus sits next to the apartment guide... no one has to know if you order in every night.

As of October 2016 this is one of the last legal listings in NYC. Ask me why and I'll explain.

BEDROOM: Size is 14 x 15 ft with a king-size bed (new five-star Tuft & Needle mattress!), luxury linens (actual linen!), wall-mounted bedside lamps and tables. Large full-length floor mirror (see pix) and one empty closet is provided for guest use, equipped with three deep shelves and 8 sturdy wooden hangers. Extra soundproofed windows and optional blackout shades in addition to the regular ones.

BATHROOM: 5 x 11 ft "zen" style bathroom with long Corian countertop, granite flooring, bamboo tiles. Luxe rainfall shower plus a handheld unit, both with excellent water pressure, river-rock flooring and an artisan glass shower wall. Spa towels and spa-sized soaps, shampoos, conditioners and lotions are provided, also a hair dryer. Please note there is no bathtub.

LIVING ROOM: 16 x 36 ft, open plan. Large desk with 27" iMac for your use, wireless keyboard and trackpad, printer available upon request. Bang & Olufson stereo with radio, CD, cassette (!) and either wireless or wired hookup to your own ipod. Small CD collection of jazz, world music, and soundtracks. Large leather sectional sofa, longer and wider than a twin or day bed (but not a formal sofa bed). Lots of unique books on NYC history, including the building itself, which used to be the Tiffany stained glass factory. Again please note: no television. So if you hate cats and love TV, this listing is not a good match for you ;-)

KITCHEN: fully equipped gourmet working kitchen with All-Clad cookware, granite countertop, and Miele appliances (gas hob, electric oven, washer & dryer). Also toaster, kettle, hand blender, microwave and a Keurig coffee-maker with coffee pods (a Chemex with filters can also be provided on request). Ergonomic gel mats on the kitchen floor and a variety of cutting boards and properly sharpened knives. Stocked pantry items include cooking oils and vinegars, salt/pepper, sugar and spices, flour, pasta, rice and some grains. Let me know if there's something special you'd like to have on hand.

Cat Care (minimal): Edith is a sweet little rescue kitty who will play with you as much or as little as you want. She gets one can of food (or one scoop of kibble), half in the morning and half at night, plus topping off of her water. No litter duties are required because the special no-dust litter lasts a week and then the whole box gets replaced. Happy to answer Qs about cat stuff - and 100% guaranteed there is no cat smell.

***Arrivals between 9 pm and 11 am may incur an additional $50 fee, depending on my schedule. This will have to be paid in cash.***

Rachel a été une hôte prévenante et nous a très bien reçu. Nous nous sommes sentis comme chez nous dans ce superbe appartement, idéalement situé dans Manhattan. Si vous êtes 2, c'est l'endroit où il faut être. Les autres appartements sont souvent taillés pour une famille complète; ici c'est parfait pour un couple. Les photos sont absolument conformes à la réalité. Nous avons expérimenté quelques petites adresses dans le quartier - contactez moi pour en savoir plus. Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir dans ce magnifique appartement. Merci Rachel pour ton accueil!

We stayed at Rachel’s for a week over Easter and it was great. She really has thought of everything. I loved how luxurious the bathroom was and having a coffee machine and a washing machine and dryer was great for a longer stay. Great location too, very handy to get around. Edith was the sweetest cat and I miss her. She would do this thing where she’d come and sit right next to you then fall over so you could rub her belly, was the most adorable thing!

This is such a great place! The location is pretty perfect - walkable to many parts of the city, but has easy access to the subway. It's also near some good restaurants, including Eatily. The apartment is beautiful, spacious, and super clean. It's got large windows that let in lots of great light. It has a really nice bathroom and kitchen, plus truly everything you need for a comfortable stay. And, Edith, the cat, is adorable and so sweet! Rachel is a fabulous host! She is easily accessible by text and was always incredible quick to reply. She provides thorough and clear instructions for anything you need to know about the apartment. I would highly recommend this spot!

We stayed at Rachel's for our NYC elopement, and it was a wonderful experience! She was so thoughtful and helpful with tons of recommendations beforehand, and was available throughout our stay to answer any questions we had. Her apartment is perfect for a couple looking to stay in a spacious, centrally located spot. It is beautifully decorated with tons of perks, and her sweet cat, Edith, is such a joy! We would absolutely recommend her place.

A fabulous location and a lovely apartment. Edith the cat was the perfect cat-didn't enter the bedroom, delighted to be petted, but not begging for it.

Guests enjoy total privacy - it's their apartment - although I am just a text or email away should they need anything. Note that I do live in this apartment - it's not a "vacation property."
