This great little duplex is sunny, sweet & comfortable. The landmarked rowhouse is on a very quiet tree-lined residential street in Brooklyn's booming Greenpoint Historic District, on the riverfront just north of bustling Williamsburg. Walk to the Bedford "L" subway stop, or just a few blocks from the Greenpoint "G" stop. East River Ferry service (with multiple stops in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens) is ~5 blocks from the house, on the India St waterfront. Plenty of restaurants, bars, boutiques, cafes, galleries, banks, gyms, etc all within blocks.
I love this neighborhood, and you will too!

Fabulous location for subway, restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques. The apartment bedroom is in the lower level, accessible by a very narrow spiral staircase. We made one trip down and up a day. We could not navigate luggage down there and the only bathroom is up the spiral stairs. There is not a microwave which would have been nice for warming leftovers and coffee. There is also no TV which only mattered because of the Olympics. Other then that, it was as described and quite charming.
This apartment worked out great. Loved the location, really safe and friendly area. We would easily stay here again and recommend it to friends.
This was my fifth time renting from Maya (if that's not a ringing endorsement, I don't know what is!), and my first time staying in the sweet historic duplex. It certainly was sweet, and I was more than happy with everything. Maya is a truly wonderful host. Everything is always very clean, comfortable and well-decorated/designed. Yet another amazing stay! I couldn't ask for anything more.
Was a beautiful Apartment, my two artists were very happy
Thank you Maya for being great
I would highly reccomend your home
Staying in Maya's lovely little apartment for a week was great. The space is really cute and light filled and has everything you would need. It was very clean and Maya very generously provides any supplies you may need as well as a very helpful guide to Greenpoint and Williamsburg.
Greenpoint is a wonderful neighbourhood, it feels very local whilst still having some amazing cafes and shopping and is an easy walk to Williamsburg. It's about a 15-20 minute subway ride to the island with one transfer.
We had a freak snow storm during our stay so the basement area where the bedroom is did get a bit cold but there is an additional heater supplied which does warm up the space a bit. Also if you have a bulky suitcase, you may find it difficult to get it down the little staircase but there are cupboards provided on the top level.
I would definitely recommend Maya's place for anyone who wants a "local" experience of New York. It's beautifully decorated and close to so many little gems. Thanks Maya!
Maya and her "Sweet Historic Greenpoint Duplex were both just fantastic! Clear instructions, lovely place, great location . . . couldn't ask for more. Well, I did want to watch the BCS championship and, as duly noted, there was no TV, so had to keep refreshing my browser to update the score.
Five stars! My only regret is that I didn't stay here during two earlier trips, when I spent two- to three-times the nightly charge on piece of shit little hotel rooms in trendy, obnoxious hotels in Greenpoint. Never again. This being my first real experience with Airbnb, I don't know if I'm ever going to stay in a hotel in NYC again!
Maya's place is just adorable! perfect home away from home. Everything needed was provided & much more. She even had places recommended to go to around the area.
& Maya was the best host. the easiest to communicate and very accommodating to situations like check in and out times and luggage drop off/pick up.
She makes sure you're stay is the best possible.
The apartment was lovely and just as pictured.
Maya is a great, attentive host with a beautiful home. It is as wonderful (and stylish) as the photographs depict, and is located in our favourite part of Brooklyn. Definitely check out the recommendations Maya leaves, we loved Peter Pan for doughnuts, Five Leaves for amazing breakfasts and retro bowling! Thanks again, we will be back!
Maya was an amazing host and her apartment was beautiful! Communication was clear, prompt and friendly and the listing is as lovely as it looks in the pictures and in a super convenient location for public transport. Great cafés, bars and restaurants in the area (for Australians - there are quite a few cafés nearby that do a killer flat white). Greenpoint is a great neighbourhood and my new favourite place in New York!
