HISTORICAL MANSION, GUESE HSE, POOL
What you get: Entire home (accommodates four); four bedrooms; three bathrooms
Truthfully, you're probably renting this opulent Victorian museum if and only if you’re an 85-year-old woman with the small fortune your father left you from his once-booming tobacco business. The gold leaf, red velvet, candelabras, bronze statues holding candelabras, curtains with tassels, and oil paintings of naked babies speak pretty much for themselves. However, if this is music to your hearing aid, what you’ll get is a 4,000sqft space with four private suites (each with its own bathroom), a gourmet kitchen, a pool, gardens, a guest house, and a quick walk to Magazine St (though probably not as quick if you're using your walker).
Entire Brownstone Home with Garden
What you get: Entire home (accommodates 10); three bedrooms; 2.5 bathrooms
Like everything else in New York, your money will only get you so much. But, then again, in New York it’s all about the EXPERIENCE, amirite? You’d think for $5,000 a night you'd get a whole lot more than three bedrooms and 2.5 baths, but you'd be wrong. The opportunity to crash in a Soho brownstone, however, will bring you as close to New York royalty as you can get. And once you tell people at the bar that you have outdoor space, they'll be dying to buy you $9 beers.
