Welcome to The Williamsburg Guesthouse. Come and stay a while! Its comfortable, super clean, quiet, and convenient to anywhere in the city (you can see the subway entrance from the front door), its a perfect place for a beautiful NYC getaway.
Located in the heart of trendy Williamsburg, Brooklyn, you will love this place. Its a very clean and fully renovated Brooklyn style home. Each room is clean and quiet with a queen size bed that sleeps two, and room #2 can sleep three with the new twin size Murphy bed. Your room is private! The house is duplex style:
1st Floor: Living room, Kitchen, Bathroom, Laundry, and Backyard
2nd Floor: The 3 Bedrooms, you can rent them separately or all together. Each one is completely private, but its great for parties/groups of people.

The house is right off the Lorimer L-train subway stop (the second stop from Manhattan). You can see the subway entrance from the front stoop of the house.

Take a trip to Times Square without getting hit with all the tourist-trap costs of staying there. The immediate neighborhood offers great/famous bars, restaurants, shops, clubs, and parks. And, the prices are low compared to most places in Manhattan.

I live at the house too, on the 3rd floor. Its a separate apartment but I'm available all the time to help check in/out or answer any questions about the area or the city. You will have a great time staying here.
See you soon,
I grew up in Virginia, but have lived in NYC since 2005. So, you get a NY'er with all the charm and southern hospitality of a southern boy, the best of both worlds. I like to make sure my guests are comfortable. I also like helping people find the places they want to go. This includes tourist spots, but definitely does not stop there.
I love to travel and meet new people. So having people come to my place, The Williamsburg Guesthouse, is perfect.
When I first moved to NYC, all my friends lived in this area, so I moved here to out of convenience. Turns out that Williamsburg Brooklyn has become one of the, if not the hottest place to live in NYC area. When I bought the property, it was for a long term investment and I had always wanted to rent it out to travelers from around the globe. Last year was the first year I could actually make that happen, and I will never look back. Its been amazing so far.
This old house, literally its over 100 years, was a DUMP when I bough it. But I had a vision to make it beautiful again! I put in a long time of sweat equity to build it up. I completely remodeled/restored the house, with the help of some amazing friends/contractors. We took it from a house that was falling in on itself to this beautiful, modern, clean, comfortable house.
This is the big NYC, if you can think of it, you can find it and do it. Williamsburg Brooklyn is also host to many of these activity spots, and if its not here, you can find it within a 5 to 25 minute subway ride. Most people that visit take advantage of the amazing sights to see and the shopping all around the city. Dont forget about the museums, they are so wonderful.
