Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Elegant, romantic, cosmopolitan, large, high-ceiling, sunny, full-floor townhouse apartment with huge private deck; warm & inviting; north-south exposure; perfect downtown location; in most exciting, most centrally-located neighborhood in Manhattan; half block from subway exit; filled with historic charm & great restaurants - from superb Northern Italian cuisine to celebrity-chef hot-spots, all on one tree-lined, set-back, sunny block in the Village.
Short-term rental of beautiful, *full* parlor floor with walnut-oak flooring, ten-foot Breakfast-at-Tiffany's mirrors & black Italian marble hearths, of registered landmark West (Greenwich) Village brownstone townhouse w/ lots of light, 700 sq-ft, well-furnished, elegant, warm & comfortable apt, large b/r w/ queen-sized bed, very small but complete kitchen, beautiful bathroom, exclusive/private 500 sq-foot southern-exposure, finished terrace off living room.
We have availability now through August, 2013, but no days after available yet. We have an equally lovely space in San Francisco that has availability; please ask if interested.
Rent includes all taxes, utilities, electricity, insurance, incoming phone, Internet. Check-in is 6 p.m. and check-out 3 p.m.
We now can accept credit cards for your booking through PayPal's invoicing service -- you do not need a PayPal account and are just charged their convenience fee.
Cleaning fees are the only other cost of your stay, one exit-cleaning regardless of period ($70 minimum); and one required every three weeks of stay; no other fees, taxes or hidden charges. However, *please* note that there is a $1K security deposit. This is returned with 4% interest p.a. minus the cost of the cleaning within a week of your exit. I understand that this is not standard, but the furnishings in the apartment require it. E.g., if you stay one week, there is a rental fee and a $1000 deposit from which $70 will be deducted for one cleaning. For two weeks the rental fee would double, but the deposit and cleaning deduction would be the same.
Situated on the most beautiful, set-back, tree-lined, dynamic, super-safe block in the West or Greenwich Village.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (you can safely skip this section)
1. Are there more pictures?
We've limited the number of pictures because we have found that it was better to put the rooms particulars in the FlipKey "Details" tab. There are no additional photographs to send.
2. Is there laundry in the building?
There are no facilities in the building; there may actually be laws against that in brownstones in the City. The easiest is to either drop-off, or have picked up for free at the apartment, your laundry for wash-and-fold by Little J Cleaners. They will also deliver for free: 47 7 Ave at 13 St.; close at 7 p.m., 212.367.7221.
3. Why do you charge separately for cleaning? Why not fold it into the price?
The number of cleanings required varies by length of stay & the amount may vary by depth of cleaning needed. Also, the cleaning fee simply goes directly to the cleaning company & is determined by them.
4. Can I pay with a credit card?
You can make a credit card payment via PayPal, google!checkout, or American Express through serve.com, if you have an account with any of these. Their fees will be charged to you and generally are pretty stiff, though, at about 4%, unless your funds come from a linked bank account or existing balance. You can also rent through AirBnB; they handle the security deposit and the rental fee with a credit card: http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/100368.
5. Anything else I should know before my inquiry?
Yes, one thing, and to my potential future guests, please do not be put off by this, but, please, do not ask me what the best price I can offer you is. It starts the communication off on the wrong foot. There are no negotiations about price; the accommodations are being offered at excellent rates & at my average cost (NYC is crazy expensive; check out here for a comparable hotel: http://www.standardhotels.com/new-york-city/rooms/) ; all times & rates are fixed. Also, all information you need for price & availability is here on this site. So, please, navigate FlipKey's excellent facility, & I am hopeful we'll be able to host you for a great New York holiday!
