Beautiful, creative, artistic environment at the point where three neighborhoods meet. This room is energetic and full of light.
One block from the subway.
A beautiful and sunny apartment on the 2nd floor it features 2 private bedrooms both with full size beds. Each room accommodates 2 people. Bed rooms are back to back, joined by individual closets, so there's no noise. White in the front and Beige in the back. There's a huge open living room, dining area with a table and an enclosed kitchen. There are plants every where there is sun light, along with art work from my private collection. Apartment is modest, minimal and temperature controlled.
The White Room is charming and gets lots of sunlight. It looks onto the street and is pretty quiet for this bustling neighborhood. It has plenty of closet space to store your luggage and things. The bed is super comfortable, (read the reviews), and fresh bedding and towels are always available.

Interaction with Guests
I give people space and I'm here if they need me.
I'm always happy to help with directions, guid books and practical NYC insider advice.
The last stop in Williamsburg on the JMZ train, this culturally mixed neighborhood is situated on the edge Williamsburg where Bushwick meets Bed-Stuy. Here you will find an avant garde area known for its vibrant underground scene. This up and coming neighborhood is stirring with bohemian night spots, funky cafes, dive bars, art gallery's and junk shops all in walking distance. Not to mention everything is very affordable and vey close to Manhattan.
The J/M/Z train is One block away, about a four minute walk. The J goes downtown and the M goes uptown.
You can take the subway here directly from JFK.
This is a great station because there are always two trains heading into the city. The J train runs express during rush hour and is 2 stops from Manhattan, very close and very fast. The M runs local and is about a 15 minute subway ride into Manhattan. This above ground train takes you over the Williamsburg bridge and is not as aggressive as the L train rush hour commute.
The L train is available however, about a 15 minute walk to the Jefferson stop. I personally prefer the J or M because its just outside the door.
Unregistered guests are not permitted to stay the night.
Do not let anyone you do not know personally into the apartment...(not anyone)
Gi Gi is great and an amazing host! Had a great time in a really cool flat, Thanks Gi Gi!:)
My experience which uses Air bnb first time was so awesome! Gigi was excellent host for me!
Shining clean apartment, including the bathroom. Very warm even in this crazy cold weather. Bright room with big and very comfortable bed. Steps to major subway/metro stations, 24/7 fast food and grocery stores, gym, laundromat, post office, pharmacy etc. the Internet is not super fast if this is something that is very important for you but quite enough for basic web (website hidden) Gi is very hospitable, helpful and nice. I'd say the best host I've stayed at in NYC. Highly recommend this place!
An artist's retreat, undoubtedly. Tasteful decor and the most genuine (website hidden) Gi responded very quickly to my booking request and was a pleasure to converse with in passing during my stay. The apartment is clean and located steps away from the JMZ trains. 11/10
10/10. I had such a lovely time staying with Gi Gi in her apartment. The place was so cute and clean. I felt right at home for the six days I stayed there. I couldn't have asked for a better airbnb (website hidden) Gi is a lovely host and so kind. She helped me when I was sick on the last day of my trip and I can't thank her enough for that.
I highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Brooklyn. Very close to the LES and Bushwick. Great if you have friends spread across the city like I do. JMZ train gets you around so well.
I will book again next time i'm in NYC and will tell my friends to do the same.
GiGi was amazing I have been using airbnb for years and she was the friendliest and coolest host I have ever seen.I enjoyed my stay a lot. Room was extremely clean.
Before we even reached New York, Gi Gi contacted us and made sure that we knew how to get there, and gave us advice on different means of transportation. She is a warm, generous and inspiring woman, who is profoundly interested in meeting new people, and hosting in the best way possible. Her sense of humor is priceless !! The apartment is tidy and clean, yet has loads of personality and quirky and classy details. This goes for the cat as well.
We will recommend this place for everyone, and will definitely want to stay there the next time around.
She and her place made a perfect platform for our New York experience. Thank You, Gi Gi !

I'm an artist from New York and have lived in NYC for 13 years. I love traveling and have been all over the world. The most interesting thing to me is the beauty and hospitality you can find once you open your self up to new things. New York City is an adventure in its self. This is a secure place to begin and end the escapade.
As a host I like to give people space and let them enjoy the apartment. I'm a very social person but also love privacy. Every situation is different and I find it very important to respect people needs on an individual basis. I live here and work here often, so chances are we will be running into each other. I always give my guests priority and make sure they are very happy.
I've had great experiences doing this. I've met the most amazing people and have made life long friends. Sometimes we have a drink together, occasionally a smoke, sometimes we have tea, sometimes we move all the furniture and have a dance party, tend to stay up late talking, do graffiti in the streets, switch up the art work in the house, and sometimes we just simply pass each other and have a nice chat.
Either way, I warmly invite you to stay.
