This is an "unusual"Private "keyed" 8' by 10' Bedroom that sits on a 1000sf Manhattan facing terrace, very clean in prime Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Bright airy room, full bed perfectly sleeps one but can accommodate two. Chest of drawers for storage and hooks for items that need to hang. Heat and air conditioning provided.

Terrace lounge right outside the room. The bathroom will be shared in the main part of the apartment. To use the bathroom you would have to walk out onto the terrace, walk about 5 steps "outdoor" and enter the main apartment.

Interaction with Guests
This room was designed for the lighthearted individuals, who enjoy life and seek something different. Staying here is almost like camping in the sky and not for the too serious. Thus far, all of my guest absolutely loved it and want to come back for more, see my reviews!
There will always be someone around for questions etc.
This location is the ideal spot to get a rich NYC experience. It's the first stop in Brooklyn on the L train, and within minutes you can be in either the East Village, Union Square, or Meatpacking District. There's also a ferry that'll take you to Manhattan via the East River, just a few minutes by foot from the place. Open-Air Farmer's Market with local produce every Saturday just across the street. A 7min walk to the waterfront "now open" weekend outdoor flea market, featuring a new "Outdoor Smorgasbar", selling local Beer, Wine & Sprits.
Conveniently located near Subways (metro), Buses, Taxi cabs & Boat Ferry (to Manhattan) all in walking distance. My lobby concierge can arrange assistance if a car or limo service is needed, driving you anywhere in NYC (including all airports) at a fair price.
Other Things to Note
There is a cute, "overly friendly" but NOT annoying - French Bulldog that resides within the main area of the apartment (not in the rental space) . He is not a bother at all, on the contrary..Most guest find him a real pleasure!
In my dealings with Airbnb, I found most people are very respectful to me and my home. For this reason, I do not charge a deposit at this time.
Thanks for looking, hope you can join us.
Smoking is permitted outdoors, on the terrace but NOT in the room. Pets and guest, not on the reservation are not allowed. This means, NO unauthorized parties, visitors, commercial shoots and NO pets are allowed. This is simply a really nice, very clean & safe place to sleep and experience Williamsburg NYC.
We had a great time in the Skybox. The apartment is amazing, spotless, incredible views, fantastic location, and with a very cute dog. John is full of recommendations locally and very welcoming, whilst leaving us to our own devices. A great airbnb experience.
John. The host with more than most I could have happily spent my few days in NY just talking to him. Gracious doesn't begin to cover it and the skybox was perfect for my needs (a place to sleep). I got there on time for the first glorious day of weather and a whole morning of plans were replaced by sitting on the amazing deck with possibly the best views of the city anywhere. Kevin the dog is love at first sight and always available for belly scratches. I'll be back.
Very friendly fellow, great dog, lovely location. Very clean room and excellent amenities. A great view at night. Would happily stay there again.
Excellent experience overall. Great place, location and host. Generous with his home and always offering to help.
It was a very great stay ! The room on the terrace with the views of Manhattan was unique and so comfortable. John is very welcoming and makes you feel like home. We've loved the neighborhood with plenty of good restaurants. We will come back for sure !
We stayed in the skybox. Great location. Clean and quiet. Jon is a very gracious host. Very helpful with recommendations on places to eat. I would recommend staying here. Great view from balcony.

Mature, young at heart... native New Yorker, I enjoy people from all over the world, so my good hospitality comes naturally. I am extremely open minded, embrace all lifestyles and cultures. I stand by the motto of "treat others the way you'd like to be treated" and do my best to respect and appreciate the Airbnb community. I wholeheartedly love sharing the excitement & good nature that Williamsburg New York is all about.
