Holiday Rental House
A private townhouse in one of Manhattan's most charming, chic (and safe) neighborhoods, the West Village. Rent is for exclusive occupancy of my entire five-story house, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, living, dining, kitchen, library, patio, roofdeck. Two wood burning fireplaces, many skylights, artisanal woodwork throughout, original 1852 floors in most rooms. Rent also includes basic cable, powerful wifi, satellite TV. A bit about me: I am a think tank fellow, researcher and journalist working in NY and Washington and have filled my house with artifacts from my travels to over 50 countries including 18 trips to Afghanistan where I collected many wonderful textiles and rugs. Please tell me a bit about yourself and why you are visiting New York; it will help us both to make sure this is a good fit...A private townhouse in one of Manhattan's most charming, chic (and safe) neighborhoods, the West Village.

About the neighbourhood
The West Village is one of Manhattan's most vibrant and charming neighborhoods, as well as one of the most expensive to buy property in. It is a destination for dining and shopping, attracting an upscale and sophisticated clientale. There are 20-somethings around, but the area is not as young as the East Village. Nor is it 'stroller-land' like Tribeca. The West Village caters to 30 -somethings on up, who appreciate quieter more intimate eating and drinking experiences. Many of the international brands have outposts on Bleecker Street or in the Meatpacking District nearby, but the real charm of the neighborhood is in the many independent boutiques and food stores offering something you cannot get elsewhere.
How to get there
Do NOT rent a car! Parking in a garage is horrendously expensive (more than $200 a day) and street parking is scarce and traffic is bad.
