This light-filled apartment has a welcome number of windows for its long narrow footprint. Perfect for people traveling w a dog - steps from McCarren park.
Our only quibble/surprise was arriving on a warm day on June 1 to no air conditioning. The owner directed us to the fine print in the listing “seasonal air conditioning” and that they typically do not install until June 15. However they got the units in by the next day, which I greatly appreciated! I would recommend anyone renting between May 1 - and June 15 look at weather forecast and negotiate up front accordingly. Or in early fall depending on when they typically take them out. As this apartment bedroom looks out onto a noisy section of Manhattan Ave the AC is helpful even just on fan to permit closed windows and white noise.
Excellent kitchen! We would have preferred a microwave to the toaster oven but it was otherwise well appointed. I am grateful for small supplies of basics (oils salt tea etc). Ample linens!
Owners stock enough paper and plastic and soap products for the stay - thank you!!
Clean apartment with all necessities
Steps from a small grocery and a subway stop. Lots of conveniences within walking distance.
Pros and Cons
Stayed in early October and had both a positive and negative experience. The property owner is responsive and prompt when getting us into the apartment - check in went smoothly. The rental is spacious (for NY), clean, and felt safe. It's located in a cute, hip area that has several restaurants, shops, markets nearby. Take note from the description though - "on a busy street" - this means noisy! The A/C units were taken out of the windows before we arrived, but we had warm, humid weather during our stay so it was hot in the apartment. We had to sleep with the windows open and it was so loud. We hardly got any sleep :( The ceiling fans didn't go very high either. It is close to a subway station and might be 1 stop to Manhattan, but it is several stops and train changes to get to the tourist destinations. Also take note, this is up one flight of stairs - not for anyone with bodily aches or injuries! The place was stocked with plenty of bedding, towels and toiletries. Overall, the stay was was just okay. I'd recommend to anyone that is traveling to NYC to see and do the typical sightseeing - spend the extra money and stay in Manhattan. If most of your spots are in Brooklyn, then this would be a good option for you.
Professional service; Beautiful large space; Super clean!
Love, love, loved staying here! Edyta was prompt and helpful when checking in. Info in the apartment was helpful. The place feels super safe and secure and is in a lively area with great food and shops right out the door. Everything in the apartment was clean and the decor was so nice. Super spaces for privacy, if someone wants to sleep in late while the other(s) are up in the main living area. The subway is just two blocks away to get into Manhattan. The Williamsburg area is an easy walk. We booked a stay to visit family who lives a 15-20 minute walk away in Greenpoint and I regularly walked in the area late-ish at night feeling safe. I will return to this apartment in a heartbeat! You won't go wrong booking this place. It is great to come back to this cute neighborhood after a busy day in the big city!
Only suggestions: the street noise is loud at all hours, so bring earplugs. Suggestion to host: although the bed looks lovely against the window, it might be less noisy if it is moved against an adjoining wall. Also,there is a toaster oven and full stove/oven in the apartment, but a a microwave would have been nice to heat up our delicious left overs! Thank you Edyta!
Great amount of room in the apartment. Plenty of beds and linen. Air conditioners in main bedroom and living area. Fabulous location with subway a few steps away. Right in the heart of happening Greenpoint! Great restaurants and bars right there. Fresh fruit and veg shop just below apartment and grocery store 2 blocks up.
Can cook in if need to. Well equipped kitchen. Communication with hosts Edyta and Victor was always prompt. We would recommend this property.
The property was perfect! Excellent location to the subway and restaurants, the waterfront, parks.
We loved staying in Greenpoint! The property was well-kept, clean, spacious, and well stocked with everything we needed. Our check-in was awesome and took all of 5 minutes-and on the 4th of July, even! Will stay here again!!
Everything is within your reach...and if it's not, you can probably have it delivered.
