About this listing
Make yourself at home in our 1 BR, quaint urban cottage in the heart of Williamsburg. Walk out the door and be met by endless restaurants, boutiques and coffee shops that Brooklyn has to offer. Manhattan is 10 minutes by car or 1 stop away by subway.
Please make yourself at home in our bright and charming 1BR apartment in Williamsburg. Located on the 4th floor of a walkup, this apartment gets so much light with south and north facing windows.
The living room has an L-shaped sleeper sofa, flat screen TV (w/ Roku for HBO Go & Netflix). The sleeper sofa is a double bed if there are additional guests. We offer pillows, sheets, and a cozy quilt as a top layer. There is access to the fire escape. With two windows the room gets a lot of light and feels spacious.
Kitchen is fully equipped and has an Omega Juicer, Vitamix, Crock Pot, Toaster Over, Tea Pot and French Press. Pots and pans galore.
The bedroom has a Queen sized bed with a long window that provides substantial natural light .
Lastly, there is a small room with a larger table if there are additional guests or someone needs a long table for a work space. I have had 7 people at the table.
The bathroom is quaint and has a small window, medicine cabinet with a mirror and full tub. There is not a sink in the bathroom. The kitchen sink is directly next to the bathroom door and super convenient. A common quirk in NYC apartments!
**Must be kitty friendly. Apples is 4 years old and loves to play fetch with crumpled up paper balls. He is cute and friendly.
4 minute walk to JMZ, 7 minute walk to Bedford L, 2 blocks away from the pedestrian/bike walkway on the Williamsburg Bridge. Ideal location.
Next door to Dram, Pies & Thighs, Species by the Thousands and Le Petit Bistrow. Marlow & Sons, Diner, Oslo, Beautiful Dreamers and so many other wonderful shops, restaurants, and bars.
I have lived in NYC for 9 years, 8 of them in this very apartment. I'm happy to share special spots and offer traveling advice.
Enjoy yourself! Feel free to use any kitchen items, food and shower products during your stay.
Interaction with Guests
Guests will have the whole apartment and I will be available by text, email and phone for any questions!
I love South Williamsburg. I can walk across the street and get the best pie, donuts and fried chicken the city has to offer. For 3 more blocks, I can find some delicious coffee (Oslo) and my favorite restaurant (Marlow & Sons) in NYC. It is extremely safe and for those of us who have lived in this neighborhood a long time, it feels like a small village where I have made so many dear friends.
Subway, taxi service, bike, walking... you name it... its easy to get anywhere from my apartment. I suggest a taxi from LGA or JFK as it saves a lot of time. If coming in from JFK you can take the air train to the J train where you will get off at Marcy Ave.
