We had a wonderful holiday in the apartment with terrace at the East Village Apartments. Booking was easy and straightforward and the apartment was gorgeous and just as pictured. Sudha provided lots of good advice on what to do when we arrived early after a red-eye flight from Vancouver. Rahel was very helpful and nice to deal with during our stay when we had a few questions such as where to view the July 4th fireworks and other tips around the neighborhood. Overall, the experience was fantastic. We’re planning our next trip to EVA!

We truly enjoyed our stay at EVA. The apartment is located in the eclectic East Village neighborhood– filled with restaurants , shops . It is not a tourist destination but rather a neighborhood where NYers live and play. It is a quick walk to SOHO, the Village , the Highline, Chelsea and Union Square. Would definitely come back. There is access to the F train which will take you up to mid-town and Times Square for tourist outings.
