The Space

Located 75ft up from street level. The view is nothing short of spectacular.
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. Freshly laundered linen & towels, along with shampoo, soap & hair (blow) dryer are always on hand!
I always have (free) coffee, tea, filtered water and morning oatmeal.

Guest Access

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.

McCarren Pool, a 7,200-square-foot arena, open to the public seven days a week and just across the street.

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.

Getting Around

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.
