A really charming and comfortable property in a great location for a New York city break.
We stayed in the owners' duplex which has a spacious kitchen and dining room combined and then upstairs has two main bedrooms with an additional bed on a spacious landing. The beds are extremely comfortable! In addition there are two bathrooms. We comfortably slept five here (ourselves plus children aged 11, 8, and 5).
If you are after antiseptic 5-star luxury then his isn't the place for you - it is slightly idiosyncratic. But if you want a cosy, comfortable, and characterful place for your stay in New York then we'd highly recommend it.
The owners also run two guest apartments in the same building as their duplex, although we didn't see inside these. The house is in the heart of Greenwich Village, on Jones Street, which is just off Bleecker Street. It feels very safe in the area around the house and is surprisingly quiet at night, considering where it is - we weren't disturbed at all.
It's also fantastically convenient for getting around Manhattan. Within a couple of hundred yards you can get onto three of the five main north-south subway lines, and one of these connects you easily with the other two, so it's really very easy to get around. We didn't need to get a cab once during our visit.
The owners have a cafe down the road where they provide pastries and coffee for breakfast if you want it.
Very friendly and helpful owners. Highly recommended
