One Bedroom with Sleeper Sofa

Charming accommodations in the heart of West Village. Located on cute and relatively quiet side street, near famous Bleecker St. You will find the best cafes, restaurants, shops, entertainment and subways just steps from your door. The accommodations are adorable as well as immaculate. Very European flavor with plenty of privacy.

Palma and her husband Pierre have raised her family in this townhouse and they run the popular organic Italian restaurant that carries Palma's name downstairs.

While their grown children are away at school they are making their suites available to guests. Each offers total privacy, private entrance, full kitchen, private bath and bedroom with quality European bed and linens. One queen bed in bedroom, trundle sofa in living room (which is 2 single beds). They are one bedroom suites, but each one can sleep up to 4 persons. There is air conditioning, wireless internet, cable with flat screen TV.

There is an outdoor restaurant garden in the back. Light sleepers, early to bed folks be aware of potential garden noise, rarely is it a problem for guests, but sensitive sleepers should take note.

The location cannot be beat! When you have had your fill of exploring Greenwich Village, TriBeca, Chinatown and Little Italy, the subways to the rest of Manhattan are ALL within 2 blocks!

Children over age 12 welcome. No smoking, no pets here. This is a walk up townhouse, each suite (we have two) are on 3rd floor (2 flights to walk up).

The calendar reflects when BOTH suites have been taken. We do not assign which one you will get (they are the exact same except for color scheme) until right before arrival. If this is OK with you, please send your dates and number of people staying, we will send availability and rates.

Great stay in West Village

  • 4 of 5
The location and the proximity to the station is a great credit. I enjoyed it very much when two of us were here but it might be a bit too small for a group of 4. The kichenette is not fully equipped for a full meal but for light meal it is definitely adequate.
The air con is very quiet and thanks Joseph for that. The staff in Palma's restaurant re very helpful. I would highly recommend my friends to come if they re a small group!

Exactly as Promised; Highly Recommended

I am a seasoned traveler and VRBO aficionado with certain expectations. I am delighted to report that 28 Cornelia is as described and much more. I highly recommend it.

The beds are incredibly comfortable, the water pressure is excellent and the kitchen is perfectly stocked from the espresso cups and coffee maker to the thoughtful array of dinner and glassware. The decor is spare and charming, the linens and towels are comfortable and plentiful.
The apartment is light filled, spacious and secure. (including a dead bolted, heavy door at the entrance). While it is 3 floors up, we had no problems carrying 20 pound suitcases. Street noise was muffled by the air conditioner and quiet from midnight on. I'd recommend earplugs if you are not used to city sounds.
There is plenty of room for a family of 4 or in our case, a couple and a teenager.
I so appreciated the homage to the apartment's age and character; the slope of the floor, the exposed brick, the gorgeous fresh flowers--all added to the aesthetics of the experience.
An additional bonus was the lovely dinner at Palma's restaurant, a quintessential West Village destination with an excellent reputation. The meal was delicious, the service impeccable.
I plan to use 28 Cornelia on my frequent visits to the city. I only hope that Palma, an engaging and gracious host, will have room for me on my next trip.

Great apt, great location, great welcome!

My husband, 19-year old daughter and I stayed here 4 nights and LOVED it. The apartment is adorable and cozy. The area is simply fabulous. Palma - the woman and the restaurant - are both incredible. Had a great welcome, very receptive to any request and a genuinely wonderful spot. Would definitely go again.

Best Location in Manhattan!

This was the perfect New York experience! I brought my girlfriend to New York for her 30th birthday but we were determined to avoid staying in one of the over-touristy areas. After a great deal of research, we were lucky enough to happen upon this absolute gem in the heart of the West Village.

Maura and Palma were excellent in their communication with us before our arrival and our check-in and check-out went very smoothly. They even allowed us to stow our luggage in the restaurant on the ground floor until our flight on our last day.

The apartment is old... but spacious, quaint and well equipped. Unit #6 is extremely quiet as it faces onto the courtyard and not the street. Even the nearby church bells were but a faint echo as we began to stir each morning. The bed is comfortable, there was plenty of storage space and never any issues with hot water supply. Worth noting is that despite the full kitchen, there is no microwave in the suite... and as it is an older building, no elevator. Neither of these were an issue for us.

But the real star of this show was the neighborhood. You are a short walk from 2 different subway stations which support 3 of the major subway lines which will get you to about 85% of the island without even having to change trains! The diminutive Cornelia street is lined with restaurants and cafes from end to end and that's even before you turn the corner onto world famous Bleecker Street. There are enough original shops, delis and watering holes nearby that you could easily spend an entire week within a few square blocks and never run out of things to do or wonderful places to eat! The area is also (seemingly) completely devoid of tourists. We honestly did not see a single other suitcase in our entire time here.

All in all... a wonderful trip... and a fantastic apartment! We will be back!!

It couldn't have been better

With all due respect to the folks from Alamo, CA, if you're basing your decision to stay here based on their negative review - please don't, because this West Village apartment is the real thing if you want an authentic Greenwich Village experience.
My now-wife and I stayed here for our elopement and honeymoon, and we could not have been happier. Both apartments are in a classic city walk-up. That means a front door between Palma's Restaurant and a Laundry, on a village street, and 2 to 3 flights of stairs up to your apartment. We stayed in #6 on the top floor, and the pictures on the website are accurate. It is a roomy and friendly and bright one-bedroom that feels like a cottage. Both apartments face the back courtyard, and for NY the apartments are very quiet. In the evening you will hear the restaurant crowd down in the courtyard, because the ground floor of the building, the courtyard, and the 1810 carriage house in the back are all part of Palma's restaurant. But you're in New York! And you're in the Village, so the hum of the crowd is a beautiful part of the experience. And if you're in the apartment at 10pm watching TV and don't like the noise - shame on you. You should be out enjoying the city at night.
You are right off Bleecker Street, a block away from John's Pizza (whole pies only), 2 blocks from Bleecker Street Pizza (by the slice! best in the city), 3 blocks from the Waverly Restaurant (a great diner!) on 6th Ave and Waverly, and 3 blocks from the 1-2 train at Christopher St and the A-C-F-V trains at the W 4th/Washington Sq stop. You're a five-minute walk from about a half-dozen bars and jazz joints, including the Village Vanguard, and across the street from the Cornelia Cafe, which hosts jazz as well. You're 2 blocks away from Washington Square and you have all of the history and charm of the West Village at your fingertips.
And Palma's family! You're in for a treat if you have a chance to meet any of them. They are a special family. We were lucky enough to meet Palma, the owner, as well as her daughter and her brother Joseph, who greeted us when we arrived and provided us with the keys. They are all very charming and will do whatever they can to make sure your stay is comfortable and memorable. All ya gotta do is ask!
So if you're looking for an authentic Village experience and want to feel like a local, you can do no better!
A very heartfelt thank-you to Palma, C-R, and Joseph! We look forward to next time!

Very Disappointing

  • 1 of 5
Be aware that the apartments are 3rd and 4th floor walk-ups by a moderately steep stairway. The restaurant noise is boisterous when the garden roof is retracted. Linens were adequate, but hardly exceptional. There were no fresh flowers or mineral water. A letter sent to the owners:

Your apartment #4 is in a wonderful location, there was plenty of hot water and good internet service, but otherwise we were dissatisfied with many aspects of the property.

Your daughter brought us up to the apartment, but did nothing more than point to the information book (not a warm welcome). There was no explanation about such things as the appliances, intercom or location of the second set of keys. The info book was pretty useless. There is mention of a phone which doesn’t exist (not a real problem, but a symptom of neglect).

The living room furniture is not only shabby, but quite uncomfortable. The floors were so dirty that my socks turned black after just a few hours. The walls need plaster work and painting. The living room window has no screen - to get fresh air we also get flies and gnats. Ceiling lights over a reading area don’t work and multiple electric outlets don’t work or are plugged. The TV is old with a worn out picture tube; the images are fuzzy. There’s no list of TV cable stations. The single window air conditioner is old and very noisy.

The TV didn’t work for the first 2 days - not your fault, but we did pay for 14 days of TV. I wouldn’t have mentioned this if it weren’t for all the other deficiencies.

The toilet frequently keeps running after a flush, requiring a return to jiggle the lever. Several times the lever in the tank became disconnected from the chain and wouldn’t flush without fixing it. The toilet seat hinge is broken, the entire seat coming out of position on occasion. Less than 2 weeks’ supply of toilet paper. Even with clean strainers, the tub doesn’t drain well and when showering there can be water up to the ankles.

Dishware is sparse - e.g. only 2 coffee cups and dinner plates. We met friends for dinner nearby and would have had to share cups for coffee afterward. No sharp knife large enough to properly cut a bagel or loaf of bread. Not enough dish towels. No extra plastic trash bags.

We were dunned for the final payment weeks after you had received and deposited my timely check. I had to request return of our security deposit since it didn’t arrive during the 15-day period in the contract.

Activity and Interests

The West Village is essentially the area always known as 'Greenwich Village'. It is now distinguished from the East Village as the East has developed it's own bohemian flavor.

The tree-lined streets of the West Village are best known for their mellow jazz clubs, restaurants, shops and intimate apartments that create the atmosphere of a small town nestled within the big city. Very popular for locals and tourists alike.

The location is ideal for exploring other neighborhoods - walk to Chinatown, Little Italy, the infamous Meatpacking District NoHo, SoHo and the East Village. The area is a hub for different subway lines - making the rest of the city also easily accessible.
