Azul and Gabriel corresponded with me asap if I had any questions and were able to provide answers to most. The apartment was a typical Brooklyn apartment and I have to admit it was a little noisy at night due to bars / cars but if you are out yourself then no problem. Would be quite hot in the summer but as location goes it was ideal (although we were not aware that the L Line was down) being 5 mins to Bedford St, 10 mins to the M Line and only 15/20 mins to the heart of Manhattan (4th/14th). Simple apartment with good links for people who will be out and about. Azul and Gabriel were very helpful with a late checkout as we had a night flight which helps a lot
Gabriel und Azul waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Sie haben immer schnell geantwortet und waren sehr flexibel mit dem Check-in und Check-Out. Wir konnten unsere Koffer sogar bis 17.00 Uhr in der Wohnung lassen. Was uns sehr entgegen kam, da unser Flug sehr spät in der Nacht war. Die Wohnung war super gelegen und genau wie beschrieben. Für 4 Personen ist die Wohnung absolut ausreichend. Der einzige Minuspunkt war der Gasgeruch in der Wohnung. Ansonsten hatten wir einen super Auftenhalt in dieser Wohnung. Danke euch beiden!
This was a great place to stay. Clean, bright and a great location. We were welcomed in person and made to feel at home. Nothing but good things to say about it.
Great neighbourhood, nice appartment. Seamless Check-in. Thank you!!
Was perfect for what I wanted. Clean, tidy, quiet and in a great area. Would recommend to anyone

About the Host, Gabriel
Real Estate professional, work in midtown Manhattan and have lived in Williamsburg now for 10 years.
Love books, traveling, the outdoors, magazines, good food, furniture design and modern art. Australian living in NYC for now over 15 years.
One of my favorite art museums would be Storm King Art Center about 1.5hrs north of NYC as well as Dia Beacon, also in the Hudson Valley. The Getty in LA is also totally amazing. ArtBasel in Miami Beach is something every art lover should experience.
