Private Guest Studio In Historic Greenwich Village Loft

Bedrooms 1
Space 300 sq ft
Property type studio
Minimum Stay 1 - 5 nights


About the property

1 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2-3

This charming and comfortable little studio is centrally located in downtown Manhattan on 3rd Ave. and 5th St. which is just where Greenwich Village proper (the West Village) and the East Village come together. It's a 10 minute walk to Washington Sq. Park (right in the middle of the West Village), to Tompkins Sq. Park (right in the middle of the East Village), to Union Sq. Park (where there's a wonderful farmers' market 4 days a week), to Chinatown, or to Soho. Both the east and the west side subways are just minutes from the front door.

This is a private guest studio which is part of but separated from the rest of a large floor-thru apartment. It has its own private entrance from the public hallway and its own private bathroom. It comes with a small refrigerator, a coffee-maker, an electric kettle, a toaster, and a microwave --- but there are no other cooking facilities. There's a nice 24 hour diner just one block away, as well as numerous other restaurants and stores (several of them also open 24 hours) in the immediate area.

About Katharine Abel

I was born and live in Greenwich Village and have been renting out this and two other properties in the area for the last 20 years. Although this is a new listing on VRBO/Homeaway, one of my other properties has been listed on the site for several years. As I don't yet have any reviews for this new listing and as I realize that it might be difficult to feel confident about renting a place without reviews, if you would like to check out the reviews from my other place, you can find them by entering listing # 307944. I hope this will help.

Convenient, safe and clean!

  • 3 of 5

This charming little walk-up apartment is within quick walking distance to Subway and offers easy access to tons of restaurants. The neighborhood vibe is fantastic. My teenage daughter and I stayed for five nights and never once felt unsafe. Katharine was friendly and flexible. The apartment was well-stocked and very clean. Be advised that there are three sets of stairs to climb. Not a problem for us but could be for others at the end of a long NYC day! Also, the bed is not particularly comfortable. However, we were so tired at night it didn't matter much!

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Katherine was very hospitable. The studio was clean, quiet and the location was phenomenal! The bed was a little hard but other than that everything was perfect. I would definitely stay here again.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with HomeAway and couldn't be any more positive. I'd spent a good bit of time in NYC, but always near Central Park or Times Square. You have 2 subway stations within a few blocks. Herald Square is only 5 stops away.The buses run in front of the building and go south to City Hall or north to Harlem. The food in the neighborhood is wonderful. A walk around the block to 2nd offers you anything you want and is much more affordable than anything I'd ever experienced in over 35 years of visiting Manhattan. You have a view of the Village Voice out of your front window. Katharine is an amazing host and so gracious. She is the type of neighbor everyone hopes to get. You have quick access to everything, but without the constant city noice. This was my first NY visit without using taxis. We did take an Uber back from Little Italy because it was raining. Staying in Katharine's studio will be my first choice for Amy future visits. We only wish we could rate higher than 5 stars.

Comfort, Privacy and Position

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Katharine’s for 2 weeks at the beginning of December. We now have a favourite place to return to whenever we’re in NYC! The studio was wonderful. Exactly as described and shown in photos. What isn’t shown or described is the professionalism and warmth Katharine provides. Complete privacy, but on-hand if you need anything. I knocked out the power in the apartment while there and she was incredibly gracious and kind. I stress that there was no issue with electrics in the apartment. Communication before arriving was also very prompt and detailed. Extra towels, blankets, pillows and heaters if needed, and tea and coffee provided. The position is superb, with 2 Subway lines nearby, as well as St Mark’s Place, Bleeker St, restaurants, cafes and bars. We had the best time, and that was so much in part due to the great find of Katharine’s.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Katharine was the perfect host. This quaint little apartment had everything that I needed for my stay. It was a beaut location, just about everything that I required was within walking distance & Union Square train station was only a 7-10 min walk away.

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who is travelling for only a short or extended stay, I was stayed there approx. 1 month.

I cannot wait to return!! Thanks Katharine for allowing me to stay in your awesome apartment. I had the best time!
