“Live like a local”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Great location smack bang in the middle of Greenwich Village. Price was great by New York standards but that meant that the place could use a bit of a clean and a spruce up. But you can't have it all. Colleen is really trusting and easy to deal with. Couldn't work out why there were so few reviews and it spooked me but we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Beds are really comfy but front bedrooms are pretty noisy especially on Friday and Saturday nights. Some great eating places around - Las Ramblas was awesome for tapas. Murray's Cheese Shop had an amazing range of quality small goods and cheeses. John's Pizzeria was very cool and very tasty. Really close to two different subway lines which is very handy for the tourist crowd and a lovely part of New York. Thanks Colleen for the use of your apartment. Steve, Toni and Jack

Apartment is all we could ask for
As a couple with two single friends it gave us space to be apart but also be together when we wanted (thanks for living area in main bedroom and kitchen)
One bathroom between 4 was a struggle at times but the apartment itself was roomy (really surprised for a new York apartment of its size)

Location is amazing! On a lovely street and our friends staying else where preferred to visit us in grenwich village due to the large number of lovely bars and restaurants on our doorstep

Stay at this apt if you want a great "real NYC" location (away from times square), plenty of space, quirkiness
