About the property
- Half Baths0
- Minimum StayNone
This space is one of the best areas of Brooklyn. One block from the subway, which takes you directly into Manhattan - less than 10 minutes door to Manhattan. The neighborhood is friendly and diverse. The space in unusually large for New York City and the entire wall of south facing windows in living room provides light that you cannot get in most other spaces. The area has really great restaurants, shopping, coffee, juices, parks, and nightlife. The apartment itself is fantastic. I am always responsive and never leave my guests hanging. I am very reliable, which I think is important to travelers who are visiting.
Your room is off the street and is very quiet. The window in the guest room facing a private terrace that I own, so there is a lot of light. The apartment is street level with its own private gate, so no staircase with your heavy luggage is a nice way to enter and leave the apartment. The bed in the guest room is a Queen Size bed with a soft mattress pad, of which I have heard almost all of my guests tell me it is a very comfortable bed. I have a house cleaner come once a week, so although this is not a hotel, the apartment is kept extremely clean. Stocked fridge with jams, condiments, butter, etc. If you need it, there is a laundromat around the corner, which you can drop your clothes off and have them laundered and folded and ready for pick up.
I live in the very back of the apartment and I am very friendly and rarely home - but the bathroom and living room space is shared. Sometimes I do not even see my guests. I work a lot and am often/most times out of the apartment. The situation of having guests from all over the world stay in my apartment has proven to work for me and I quite enjoy it.
Please feel free to ask me any questions.

Hi there - I grew up around the area and have lots of experience being a host. I am very quiet and live in the back of the apartment. I work in design and have been living in NYC for 6 years.
Why Owner chose Williamsburg
This property has tons of light, that is why I chose the apartment. Most apartments in NYC are railroad style or only have one window in living room. My living room has an entire wall of south facing windows which let in so much light. It is unique to NYC apartments.

A very cool corner of Williamsburg.
This is a really cool corner of Williamsburg, Puerto Rican families and Hasidic Jews in the streets, a great coffee place nearby, and the feeling of a lot of life. It's also a short walk away from cool bars and restaurants and the gentrified parts of Brooklyn and Williamsburg. And it really is a short subway ride away from Manhattan, pretty much perfectly located if you want to stay somewhere cheaper than Manhattan and get to know a bit of Brooklyn. Eric's apartment is a cool place and has way more personality than the photos indicate. The room for VRBO guests is really comfortable and spacious; a big comfy bed. And Eric's a cool and friendly guy to share the space with.
Thank you, Andy!
