The reviews for this 1,000sq ft (92.9sq m) professionally decorated home include many testimonials from large families (which figures: it sleeps up to eight people). Its South Street Seaport address promises entertainment for all ages, including small children, who will love the bicycle shop below the apartment and seasonal free outdoor film screenings. Guests young and old will enjoy walking to tourist attractions like the Brooklyn Bridge and the ferry to the Statue of Liberty.

Chateau in the trees

Despite its location near some of the East Village’s trendiest shops and restaurants, this chateau will remind you of the European countryside. The lush, tree-filled yard just outside means you’ll awake each morning to birds singing – not city noise. Inside, vintage-inspired decor includes antique-style candlesticks, framed paintings and a retro trunk. There’s wifi and a television if needed, though this romantic home offers plenty to keep your imagination occupied.

    Host Sarah introduces her East Village home with the promise that “if it’s an authentic New York experience you’re looking for, you’ve found it.” Backing up this claim are impressive (to New Yorkers) amenities – east and west-facing windows, a ground-floor laundromat and photos of her home’s jaw-dropping decor. A retro, illustrated poster for French bicycle brand Hurtu, a coffee table with anime-style artwork and a ladies restroom sign dating back to London in the early 1900s commingle in this one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment.
