The Imagined Life

The Imagined Life, Plum Guide home in New York

Click to book The Imagined Life now: from £600 per night Equipped with thirty windows, this home boasts a 360° view of the city, including views of the Manhattan Bridge and St. Theresa’s church. This isn’t something we take lightly– getting any views in New York is a highlight, let alone ones as charming as these. Host Manon has lovingly adorned the entire space in an eclectic, bohemian look that perfectly suits its vibrant neighbourhood. Situated between the Lower East Side and Chinatown, there is an abundance of great restaurants, bars, and boutique shops. Plus, it’s easy to walk into Brooklyn via the Manhattan Bridge.

Work of Art

Work of Art, Plum Guide home in New York

Click to book Work of Art now: from £350 per night If we think about what a home in Williamsburg should look like, it’d be Work of Art. This bright and airy studio is filled to the brim with the host’s own artwork and we really appreciate a home with personality. Located just moments from the East River, you’ll love the rustic, industrial feel of this part of Brooklyn and with the Williamsburg Bridge towering over you, it’s a sight to behold. Bear in mind that walking across the bridge into Manhattan is not just a quick way into the city, it’s also (understandably) exciting to watch Manhattan unfold before your eyes. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

The Park Periphery

The Park Periphery, Plum Guide home in New York

Click to book The Park Periphery now: from £194 per night With the 25-acre Battery Park at your feet and a rooftop pool above, dive right into the dynamic lifestyle of the city's Financial District. You'll find this bright studio in a glossy apartment block among art deco buildings. Its sleek and simple decor features some subtle bursts of colour – an interior that seems to echo the vibe of the surrounding area. Stroll through streets full of modern high-rises on your way to pick up Australian-style coffee, Xi'an noodles, or market-fresh groceries. Despite what you'd expect from studio living, there is a fully equipped kitchen and plenty of room to make yourself at home. Power through your nine-to-five in the plush co-working space, then relax in the shared lounge as the sun sets over Manhattan. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Picture-Perfect Pad

Picture-Perfect Pad, Plum Guide home in New York

Click to book Picture-Perfect Pad now: from £740 per night From the moment you step into the marbled lobby with its dark wood reception desk and oh-so-chic gallery wall of New York looking sexy in black and white, you can't help but feel in touch with this city's trendy urbanite crowd — even if your college days are long behind you. And while this area might be popular with graduates, this apartment is certainly far removed from the subpar living associated with student digs. We like how they've kept things simple with clean white walls, but added warmth and personality in the form of natural wood furnishings, a cosy bed throw and large fluffy rug in a calming shade of cadet grey. We can just imagine feeling the hustle and bustle of New York melt away as we run a bath or read a book from the comfortable sofa as the sun vanishes behind the skyscrapers. And if you're looking for a splash of green beyond the large potted plant and framed foliage prints, you can reach the tree-lined avenues of Madison Square Park after a twenty-minute stroll or an ever shorter cycle ride. As well as providing bike storage for guests, there's also an on-site gym, so you can keep up your fitness levels in between hitting up all the top-notch restaurants on the edge of Kips Bay. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Sheer Smiles

Sheer Smiles, Plum Guide home in New York

Sheer Smiles, Plum Guide home in New York

Click to book Sheer Smiles now: from £272 per night There’s a real air of 1970s glam here, mixed in with contemporary photography and modern appliances. We love the rocking chair and its mesh back – this subtle southern flair is a unique addition to the otherwise mid-century modern furniture. Guests have access to the building’s in-house gym, as well as the roof terrace, so while this rental unit does mean giving up some character and personality within the apartment, we think you’ll enjoy the trade-off. Sleeps up to 4 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
