Brooklyn Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, Studio, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Holiday or business trip to New York City? Williamsburg is the spot for the globe-trotting young and hip. The coolest bars, restaurants, galleries and shopping in NYC in one of the most centrally-located and sought-after neighborhoods in the city. Just 4 minutes walk to famous Bedford Avenue L train station (1 station from Manhattan's East Village). Fully furnished 1800's landmark brownstone Floor-Thru Garden Open Loft-like Apartment with Jacuzzi bathtub, gorgeous Wood Floors, original exposed beams, filtered water, full Kitchen, free laundry, free wi-fi internet that opens onto a serene huge Brooklyn Backyard Oasis with organic herbs, flowers and hammocks on a quiet and safe historic street in the heart of it all. You are literally just steps from everything in the neighborhood (markets, bars, restaurants), and you are closer to downtown Manhattan (Soho, Village, Tribeca), than if you stayed in Midtown Manhattan. 10 min to Manhattan on the subway including your walk. More info below..

Further Details: This very comfortable apartment sleeps 4 people and has a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, hairdryer, ironing board, air conditioner, heat, plus a laundry room- all included.

Things To Remember: 1. ABSOLUTELY No Smoking & No Drugs. 2. THERE IS NO TV. This is not a hotel room, but a meticulously cared-for, extremely cozy apartment to relax and feel at home in. 3. ENJOY the backyard, the flowers, the hammocks, the hippest neighborhood in NYC and unbelievably easy access to Manhattan.

Superb Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

3 friends and I stayed here over New Year 15/16 and have absolutely no complaints about the apartment. Good communication to allow us to find the apartment easily and also get the keys! The apartment is large with 1 bed and a sofa bed/dining table, all open plan. The bathroom has a jacuzzi bath and shower which was awesome. There's an outdoor area at the back for the smokers too.

Location wise we could not fault this either, in the heart of Brooklyn close to some awesome bars and restaurants/cafes.

Thanks for letting us stay.

almost a week in Williamsburg

  • 2 of 5

I think that this place was just ok. It was clean and the bed was comfortable but there was nothing personal about it. I like when a vrbo feels cared about and not just a business. I would have liked a TV, I would have liked there not to be a leak into a garbage pail under bathroom sink. Also the bathroom is tiny with a huge old jacuzzi taking up most of the room. Nice to have a backyard but it is an afterthought. Daniel is a nice guy, helpful and available.. I think it may be a better location for young people. Getting in and out of the jacuzzi was a trick.

Owner's Response: Hmm... we are a bit shocked and puzzled at the only 2-star we've ever received. First, there is a big note on our listing page that says "NO TV". We do not provide a TV on purpose. This is not a hotel room, but rather a meticulously and continually cared-for apartment that we have taken great pains to make extremely cozy and very personable, including the literally brand new $11,000 kitchen and $5000 luxury sleeper-sofa. But that is beside the point. How does one book a place that says "NO TV", and then complain that there is no TV? The leak under the sink would have been fixed immediately if they had let us know there was one. Why they did not is a mystery, since we live upstairs and they were encouraged to text or call us with any question or issue. Also, this guest pleaded with us to allow her to bring her "service" dog (we do not allow pets), yet we let her bring the dog, who didn't seem to think the backyard was an "afterthought". And finally, as for being "better suited for younger people..." Almost all of our 5-star reviews are from guests in their 50's and 60's who stay with us whenever they visit their kids who have settled in Williamsburg or other parts of Brooklyn. They have all been extremely happy here, as is proven by our dozens of repeat guests (all of retirement age). Indeed everyone is entitled to their opinion, although this one strikes us as a bit disingenuous and mistakenly misplaced with us. Godspeed to you.

Only good things to say about this rental! Very clean, very spacious, very well equipped, very comfortable; quiet yet close to everything. I definitively recommend this property. The owner is very helpful and kind. This is truly a little gem.

Nice Urban Location

  • 4 of 5

This is a great location for exploring Williamsburg and getting into Manhattan. The "L" is close, there are lots of restaurants and coffee shops close by and a movie theater a block away. Daniel greeted us and showed us everything we needed to know about the place. The garden was very private and a nice place to sit out in. I would stay here again.

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this rental in July. It is very clean and well maintained. The owner is very helpful with any questions you may have about the location or traveling around the area. It is very close to a subway station that gets you into the city quickly. We enjoyed several of the local restaurants. I would definitely rent this property again.

A nest in Brooklyn, close to Manhattan by metro

  • 5 of 5

Clean, calm, well equipped and charming property. Daniel the owner is very kind and helpful. Due to a flight cancellation we checked in 24 hours later than planned and he was really ready to help. There are many great adresses for eating, drinking, shopping in Williamsburg, just take a walk in "the village". Reaching Manhattan or other places in Brooklyn is easy as Bedford or Metropolitan stations are a few blocks ahead.
