About this listing

My charming two bedroom apartment is an oasis in the city, comfortable and stylish with minimalist furniture, beautiful morning light, fully stocked kitchen, and in the heart of Chinatown. Minutes away from LES, Soho and Tribeca. Can't find a better spot!

NOTE: Apartment is on the 6th floor of a walk-up

The space

I have lived in this apartment for years. I was the very first people to move into the unit after it was gut renovated, so you'll enjoy a clean, modern aesthetic that is rare to come by with pre-war walkups in this area.

I decided to AirBnB my place so that I can share my little slice of calm with others. This block really is the most charming in Manhattan: after all these years, I can't pry myself out of it! Located at the intersection of Soho and Chinatown, you'll experience the convenience of Soho (close to all subways, steps away from shops and award-winning restaurants) as well as the small neighborhood charm of the Little Italy and Chinatown.

The apartment itself is a spacious, art-appointed refuge. You will enjoy the ample morning light and the tall ceilings. This is a classic, pre-war unit, recently renovated with new furnishings and lights.

The bedrooms feature comfortable, beds with fresh linens. The first bedroom has a top-of-the-line queen mattress and the second has a full mattress. (The entire apartment is professionally cleaned before each stay.) Each affords a view with large windows to let in the light. Each is decorated with beautiful curiosities and art objects. You'll feel truly at home.

The kitchen is fully-equipped and ready for your use, featuring pots, pans, burners, stove, all clean and convenient.

You will absolutely adore my home.

Me, my boyfriend and our two friends stayed at Sara's place for a week this summer. The flat as described is 6 floors up, but aside from climbing this small mountain with cases this place was just perfect. The flat was in a secure and friendly block and had ample space for us - the decor is lovely, it's super clean and the aircon was ideal for the hot weather!!! There are two good size bedrooms but only one has a rail for hanging clothes. The bathroom is small but clean and the shower is great! There is also a nice kitchen dining area too - perfect for planning the sightseeing days ahead. The flat is located in China Town and just over from Little Italy - the neighborhood is fun and lively and super close to the Canal Street subway. This was a perfect base for us to get to all of the events we had planned and sights we wanted to see. We loved our stay and would happily stay here again - thank you Sara!

If you want to get a real NYC feeling, the flat of Sara is the perfect choice. In the middle of China Town and on the border to little Italy live is surrounding tou - sometimes a bit "touristy" maybe. 2x We enjoyed to have two bedroom for our children and us. The sixth floor without an elevator can be a bit "challenging" - especially if you have a nice sommer like we with 90...100 Fahrenheit ;-)

Had a really enjoyable time at this apartment. It was as described, bright, airy and peaceful in such a busy and lively area. Near to good transport links and other hip areas. Would recommend to anyone visiting New York :-)

The location is amazing, doubt you'll find a better place at a better spot, however I obviously haven't tried them all... This one however will please you!

We had a nice stay at Sara's place. Very quiet at night which was great, the six floor walk up takes a bit to get used to but just think of it like a workout after dinner, just pack light!

We very much enjoyed our stay. The apartment was clean, the location is great, and Sara was very responsive and accommodating. Some guests should take note that there is a 6-floor walk-up, but it was fine with us.
