Looking for a beautiful, warm, fun, perfectly located, and comfortably decorated apartment to spend time in NYC? You can stop looking…no, seriously. This LES ground floor duplex with private backyard is the perfect selection for a group looking to vacation in class, eat like kings, party like rockstars, and relax in complete comfort.
If you've never heard about the Lower East Side of NYC, here you go. It is one of the top neighborhoods in this great city. Amazing dining, fun bars, posh nightclubs, niche shopping, and endless mom and pop shops. This apartment is in walking distance to famous restaurants like WD-50, The Meatball Shop, Beauty and Essex, Sons of Essex, and Co-Op Kitchen. Bar-Hop from Back Room to Fat Baby to Hotel Rivington to Sixth Ward to The Delancey and back (without even hailing a cab). Want to dance? - how about Beauty and Essex, Libation, Los Feliz, and DL? Or take a quick cab ride over to the Meatpacking District (for the serious stuff).
Want to head out to tour the city? Take a walk to the end of the block to hit the F, J, M, and Z subway lines to get just about anywhere fast. If you want a cab, there are always a few coming down the block, empty having just come back over the Williamsburg Bridge. We have never waited more than 30 seconds for one…ever.
Now let's talk about the apartment. The pictures speak for themselves but here's some extra info. The apartment is a ground floor duplex with a beautifully decorated private backyard. The upstairs features a large, open style living room/kitchen/common area, one bedroom, full bathroom, and access to the backyard. The lower level has two more bedrooms, a half bath, and a washer/dryer unit.
Living Room - the most amazing room in the place has exposed brick, floor to ceiling windows, a large plush sectional couch with two recliners, shag rug, full bar, and an electronics buffs dream. 60" LCD TV, 7.1 channel surround sound system that pounds, Wifi, Apple TV, touchscreen universal remote, Playstation 3, Xbox360, Wii, cable with all the perks….are you horny yet? Watch a movie or sports in high def and surround sound or use your iPhone or iPod to wirelessly connect to Apple TV and blast your favorite tunes. Want to rent a movie? Go ahead…we're cool with it.
The Backyard - just when you thought this place couldn't get better…there's more. Head into the backyard for some nice, open air relaxing and drinks. The two level area has a astroturf flooring, picnic table, adirondack chairs, a cooler, and a grill. What about at night? - plug in the lights for a beautiful nighttime atmosphere. Brrrrr, its cold - start up the heat lamp and have fun. Don't worry about waking the neighbors…they're assholes anyway.
The Bedrooms - The upstairs bedroom features a music theme and extra comfort. Queen size memory foam mattress and pillows and wall mounted 42" LCD TV. Downstairs bedroom #1 features a full size bed and wall mounted 46" LCD TV. Downstairs bedroom #2 has another queen bed and wall mounted 46" Plasma TV. All bedrooms have air conditioning and cable boxes with all the perks.
The Kitchen - lets be honest - you didn't come to NYC to cook a meal, but if you want we have what you need. Stainless steel appliances, dishwasher, cappuccino maker, toaster oven, and all the plates/cups/blah blah blah. The greatest feature of the kitchen is the chalkboard wall. It currently features a beautiful NYC mural from an artist friend but feel free to do what you want. Erasers and chalk in the cabinet.
The Bathrooms - the apartment has a full bathroom upstairs and a half downstairs. Both are beautifully decorated with marble tile and mirrored walls. Enjoy a hot shower with the adjustable and removable shower head. Don't worry about running out of hot water - we have an in-line water heater that never runs out.
In summary - stop looking and start booking. Unfortunately, there is one huge, disappointing, terrible catch to this place. It's a serious issue that must be mentioned. Once you walk in - you are not going to leave. You won't see the city and you won't go to the game. You're going to call us with an offer to stay forever, but we'll say no…Sorry. But really - if you know about it beforehand and prepare for the pain and heartbreak of leaving, you'll be ok. Come and enjoy this paradise now!!!...Read more
