About this listing
Our newly renovated, stylish 2 BR apt is located in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn's hottest neighborhood for music, food, culture & shopping. Just 1 subway stop from Manhattan's E. Village & LES, access to the city is quick and easy (15 minutes door to door). While it's perfect for a single person or couple, the 2nd bedroom is both an office and nursery with crib, changing table & lots of great baby gear. Whether you bring your little one or leave them at home, this is the perfect place.
Perfect for a single person, couple or family with small child!
With all that Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood has to offer right outside our front door and Manhattan just a five minute subway ride away, you'll get the very best of both worlds here. This neighborhood is the very center of the current Brooklyn renaissance; with the best restaurants, exciting bars of every kind, cutting-edge live music venues, art galleries and some of the world's greatest boutique shopping literally at our doorstep.
Located in a small, privately owned 3-story building, our apartment takes up the entirety of the 2nd floor. The unit was completely gutted and remodeled 3 years ago with new everything; hardwood floors, new kitchen, bathroom tile, etc. It is clean, stylish and very comfortable for a couple (plus one person can sleep on the couch) as well as a baby room/office! We have great heat in the winter and a/c for the summer.
Our apartment includes:
-Master Bedroom, Queen Bed with brand new, luxury pillow-top mattress (sleeps 2)
-Office/Baby Room with crib and changing table + lots of extras (musical playmat, Mamaroo rocker chair, baby bathing tub, etc.)
-Living Room with flat screen, cable/HBO, Netflix, apple TV, leather sofa (can sleep 1) & fold-away dining table
-Fully equipped Kitchen with gas stove top & oven
-Bathroom with shower/tub, great water pressure
Interaction with Guests
Our apartment will only be available when we're out of town, so special circumstances and/or key exchanges aside, we will not have any in-person interaction with our guests. We're available 24/7 on our phones and email of course, and the apartment above us is inhabited by our best childhood friends who will be available for emergencies.
Please note, our landlady and the owner of the building lives below us on the 1st floor. She is very sweet. Her primary language is Spanish. Please say hi and introduce yourselves to her or our upstairs neighbors if you see each other coming and going and let them know you're friends who are staying in our apartment while we're away.
It doesn't get any better than this location. Williamsburg is one of, if not the most sought-after areas in all of Brooklyn (all of NYC actually), and we have one of the best locations within the neighborhood. Some of the highlights within a few minutes walk of our apartment are: McCarren Park, East River State Park (home to Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea), Brooklyn Bowl, Music Hall of Williamsburg, The Knitting Factory, Peter Luger's Steakhouse, Artists' and Fleas Market, Nitehawk Cinemas, Williamsburg Cinemas, The Williamsburg Bridge, and a never-ending assortment of amazing local bars, restaurants, coffee shops and cafes, boutique shops and AMAZING people watching.
Transportation here is very easy! We're located just a few minutes walk from both the Bedford L and Marcy JMZ subway stations, as well as both the North and South East River Ferry stops. We are also surrounded by Citibike stations which are basically bicycle vending machines that you can rent by the hour. Catching taxis on our street and the surrounding area is also very easy and there are several inexpensive, on call private car services with call stations within a few blocks of us. Uber is also always only a few short minutes away.
Other Things to Note
***Please note, the rate to use the master bedroom (up to 2 people) is as listed. There is a $45 extra fee to have a third person sleep on the couch and/or use the baby room/crib. We will adjust the fee for you accordingly to match this system.
Basically just leave it how you found it. Respect yourselves and respect the space, it's our home and not a full-time rental or business for us. No more than 3 guests and no pets please unless otherwise discussed. No cigarettes. No need to tip-toe around here but please, no loud parties. Please say hi and introduce yourselves to her or our upstairs neighbors if you see each other coming and going from the building. If something should become damaged during your stay, please let us know asap so we can take care of it.
Dan and Joanie's apartment is wonderful, just as described on the website. It is clean and inviting. They communicated information about the area and transportation. It was the perfect place to stay while visiting our daughter who lives nearby. We'd definitely stay there again.
Great location and nice flat.
Everything was as described and the place was perfect for a short stay in NYC.
Dan and Joanie have been very kind, precise, trustful and always at full disposal for any need. We also had the opportunity to meet in person.
The area is just fantastic, that's the place to be in Williamsburg, very close to the L subway train (witch is just one stop from Manhattan) and easy to reach from La Guardia and JFK airport by taxi.
The apartment was clean, fully furnished and exactly how it is described. This apartment is designed for 2 people. 4 guest (as we were in the first part of the stay) can also fit, above all if they mostly go out to eat. Anyway, the kitchen was also very furnished and has anything you need. The television has cable and hundreds of channels.
We thank Dan and Joanie for the very nice time we had the opportunity to spend at their lovely place.
The apartment was just as advertised, clean and comfortable for two. It's in a terrific area with easy walk to coffee shops, restaurants, shops etc. The welcoming packet from Dan and Joanie was thorough, accurate and loaded with excellent tips for local spots. Easy commute by subway to Manhattan. Would definitely stay here again.
Dan & Joanie's place was perfect for a long weekend in Williamsburg! Everything in the listing was accurate and the location is absolutely perfect.
The hosts went above and beyond to make sure that we had all the information needed to enjoy their apartment and they were extremely helpful whenever I had questions about the area or the apartment. They left a detailed packet of information to make sure that we were able to enjoy the weekend to the max.
I would definitely recommend staying at Dan & Joanie's if you are travelling to Brooklyn. Great apartment, great location, and incredible organization and communication.
I had a perfect, short stay in Brooklyn at Joanie and Dan's. So easy and the a lovely, inviting space. A home away from home. Lots of good information about the neighborhood on a info sheet, really comfortable bed, great HOT shower. They responded really quickly when I had questions. I would recommend to anyone wanting to explore Williamsburg and the Brooklyn experience. Close to lots of great restaurants, shops, and public park close-by if you like a morning run. And, only one flight up! Thank you Dan and Joanie for sharing your lovely apartment.
très bonne situation, à deux pas de Bedford Av, à 5 mn de l'East river, la proximité du Williamsburg Bridge pour accéder à Manhattan directement en vélo
About the Host, Dan & Joanie
I'm a professional drummer and music educator in my early 30's and live here with my wife Joanie, a successful children's singer/songwriter from Miami. We love to cook almost as much as we love to eat out. We love traveling, meeting new people and music is our passion.
This has been my home for over 7 years, including the past two years with my wife, and we absolutely love it here! Our work takes us in and out of town regularly throughout the year and it's great to be able to offer our apartment to fellow travelers from time to time.
