A comfortable room in a large ground floor apartment in Greenpoint. The room can accommodate 3 people comfortably (4 in a pinch). Near Williamsburg with easy access to both lower and midtown Manhattan via 2 subway lines. Ideal for NYC explorers!
Rent a spare room in my apartment located in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn. Shops, restaurants and parks down the street and it's walking distance to Williamsburg.
Convenient access to 3 subway lines (G train, 7 train and L train are all within walking distance) makes it very easy to get to Midtown or downtown Manhattan. For drivers apartment is close to Williamsburg Bridge, Ed Koch Bridge, Midtown Tunnel, 278 and 495, so it's very easy to get to just about anywhere in the 5 boros (and I have a parking space you can use if you let me know in advance).
The apartment is clean and spacious, with wireless internet, washer/dryer, a well kept kitchen (with a dishwasher), parking (with advance notice) and access to a nice backyard with a garden. I love this apartment, I've been here for 7 years and it's nice quiet neighborhood without being too far off the beaten path. I also have a spare bicycle that you can use while you're here. Apartment is on the ground floor so it's very easy to get in and out.
Smoking is permitted but only outside. I'm a friendly, easygoing musician, I want you to have a good stay. If you have any questions don't hesitate to reach out!
The room was really nice, lots odf space and privacy. Netflix is nice when you had a long day in New York.
Mattie is friendly and helpfull. He gave us a great stay.
The location of the room is ideal, nearby is a subway and a supermarket. You're in no time in Manhatten.
I would certainly recomment this room to my friends.
I stayed in Matty's apartment for a week with my boyfriend and we had a great time! Matty was a great host, very friendly, quiet and accommodating. The space itself is fantastic, very private, close to the subway and near to bars and restaurants. It is also very easy to get into Manhattan, only about 20 mins. The room was a great base to come and go from, and also a really cosy place to hang out when it was freezing cold outside! I would definitely love to stay here again. Thanks Matty!
The apartment is only 10mins away from the subway and Mattie was an accommodating host. The good thing about this place is that it has parking for those travelling by car.
However, I was disappointed by the fact that the room was full of dust. It had dust balls like if the room hadn't been properly sweped or dusted in several months. Also, the room is very noisy so we woke up several times in the middle of the night. We could hear the neighbour above walking and talking; the pipes are very noisy as well.
I'm sorry that Carolina had a mixed experience with the room. The room was swept and dusted immediately prior to her arrival but I will certainly take another look at it. If there's ever a complaint with the cleanliness of the house/apartment I'm always on site and happy to fix the problem.
Regarding being able to hear street noise or the neighbors walking around upstairs I would say that this is actually a fairly quiet residential street/neighborhood by NY standards (as noted by previous renters) so I would say it's sort of the nature of a NYC apartment. A serene suburb it is not. :)
I know this was the first time that Carolina has used Airbnb so perhaps her expectations were a bit high. But again I'm sorry for the mixed experience.
Mattie could not have been a more accommodating host, and staying at his place in Greenpoint couldn't have been more convenient and economical.
He was gracious enough to accommodate my arrival after 9 p.m., and in the AM he pointed me toward a subway route into Midtown (the 7, a ten-min walk across the canal bridge nearby) that had not been evident when I looked at MTA maps. Oh, and I had a fine time perusing history titles from his library!
Mattie's place was great. Clean, quiet, and rather spacious (especially for a New York apartment). Greenpoint is a nice home base for travel into Manhattan. and was super-convenient for me since I was actually doing something there. Mattie promptly communicated with me, and was a great host.
My girlfriend and I came for a night and stayed with Mattie. He was very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. He was even kind enough to let us use his parking spot during our stay. The room was very clean, comfortable, and spacious. It was also very close to public transportation and restaurants, etc. Sadly we had a medical emergency and had to leave early but we would definitely come back. Thanks Mattie!
Nice apartment in a centrally located Brooklyn neighbourhood. The host (Mattie) was friendly and accommodating. All in all, good spot!
I needed something last minute and Mattie helped me out. Great place, awesome neighborhood.
Mattie was a great host! He even allowed me to ship package to his address before arrival. Very accomedating even with the last minute changes. The price is great for everything you get. Large space, can comfortably handle up to 3 people. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.
I stayed at Mattie's house with my boyfriend for 5 nights and it was perfect for us. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood full of shops, not so far from Williamsburg. The private room was large and comfy and we had all the privacy we needed.
Mattie is definitely a great host: he's kind and calm and he helped us when we needed. We surely recommend his house for those who need a place to stay to visit Manhattan and Brooklyn!:)
