Please read through our entire listing so that you understand our home and there are no surprises!
Exposed wood beams and brick, fireplace, fantastic art, objects & roof deck. It almost doesn't seem like you’re in Brooklyn when you’re in our home. We currently have two bedrooms available in a three bedroom loft. One private bedroom with a full size bed with a private bathroom and shower.

We have a 6000 sq foot multi level roof with multiple seating areas and a gas/charcoal grill with smoker.

In the winter time enjoy sitting in front of our gorgeous mid century conical fireplace. Large kitchen with all the bells and whistles including a dishwasher. French press coffee maker. We always have plenty of gorgeous towels and linens as well as fresh soaps. There is always fabulous coffee.

We love kids - we have an nine year old of our own. The roof is completely fenced off. There is a tree house, swing, see saw, tether ball and hop scotch as well as a bunch of toys. Kids love it over here as do adults :)

I hope you love staying in our home as much as we do!

Interaction with Guests

This is our primary residence so we are around a lot! However you dictate the interaction - as much or as little as you would like! No pressure.

The Neighborhood

Hailed as one of the Top Ten spots to see street art and graffiti in NYC - East Williamsburg and Bushwick are raw creative neigborhoods brimming with energy. East Williamsburg & Bushwick are industrial neighborhoods that are at the center of a very exciting art scene - serving as hosts to acclaimed international street artists and home to hundreds of murals. Schedule a tour with New York Like A Native: Tours of Brooklyn and Beyond

East Williamsburg is a diverse community , actively industrial with a booming artist and musician community. Great nightlife duck duck, Pine box Rock Shop, The Acheron, The Anchored Inn & Kings County to name a few.

Exciting Food Scene - Okonomi, Robertas, Montanas Trail House, Shinobi Ramen, Momo Sushi, Dunwell Doughnuts

Fun shopping especially if you like big warehouse style thrift stores such as Urban Jungle. Lots of Indie shops too like Mary Meyer and Dolly Gs.

This is a very safe neighborhood with a loads of people walking around day and night. Businesses open 24/7 and in general people and neighbors looking out for one another.

Getting Around

We are conveniently located on the L Train. Several busses that go in and around Brooklyn and Queens. The Q59 goes directly into Williamsburg proper.

Other Things to Note

Please note that one of our studios and a bar are connected to our house. Studio mates typically start working between 10 am and 12 pm on weekdays and end around 6 pm. Sunday is very quiet. The bar is open until 4 am. If you are a very light sleeper I recommend ear plugs - certain nights you can hear faint music.

Chances are you will be sharing the house with another airbnb guest - please be respectful.

We provide the following publications
New York Times Weekend Edition
New York Magazine
The New Yorker

We keep a fully stocked cabinet of everything you could need while travelling from toothpaste to allergy meds.

All bedding is 100% cotton and the comforters and pillows are hypo allergenic.

We use unscented organic vegetable based laundry detergent. If you know that you are allergic to vegetable based detergent please let me know and we will use something else.

We have one cat named pp (perfect pretty) she’s around 10ish. She’s a very low maintenance outdoor cat. She basically comes and goes at her leisure.

Our plumbing is very old - please no tampons in the toilet.
