We have a two bedroom apartment in Brooklyn, in the intersection between Bed-Stuy. Williamsburg and Bushwick. The place is 4 blocks away from the Flushing Av. stop in the JMZ lines (about a 5 minute walk, and then a four-stop ride to the Lower East Side in Manhattan), and 2 blocks away from the Flushing Av. stop in the G train (that takes you to South Brooklyn, or Queens, or also combines with the L train to go to Manhattan).

The neighborhood is very mixed, with young people and families. It is a short walk (around 15 min) or two-stop train ride to Williamsburg, where you can find many bars, coffee shops and stores.

The apartment is in the 4th floor (no elevator) of a renovated building. We have a fully equipped kitchen and a dining/living room that you can use. Your room is a mid-small space, that includes a full size double bed (with some empty drawers for your clothes), a shelf and a chair, and also a heater or an air conditioner (depending on the season and time of the year). It has a window with lots of light, and also some closet space. My boyfriend lives with me in our room, your are renting a separate and private room with its own door. We both admin the bookings so you'll be in touch with one of us two.

(As of December 2013 we bought a brand new high quality mattress for the room to make your stay even better).

  • Omar et Martin sont extrêmement gentils. Nous n'avons pas pu voir Omar mais et très peu Martin, mais vous pouvez quand même compter sur eux. Nous sommes resté 10jours, l'appartement est génial (très agréable, propre, parfaitement équipé, bref on s'y sent bien). La chambre est de taille suffisante pour dormir et déposer vos quelques affaires. C'est à 5mns a pied de 2 lignes de métro, et vous êtes sur Manhattan en 15-20mns. Des supers marchés et épiceries et trucs pour manger a tous les coins de rues. Si vous aimez sortir, il n'y a rien dans le coin, il faudra au moins prendre le métro (le Brooklyn pour sortir est plus loin). Totalement conseillé.

  • Omar and his boyfriend were travelling abroad during my stay, so I didn't get a chance to meet them, but the communication was quick and easy and the apartment was great! He had friends staying in his room while he was gone and they acted as friendly, helpful hosts! Convenient location in Brooklyn, but not a far subway ride into Manhattan at all. I'd def stay here again in the future.

  • Had a great stay at Omar and Martíns appartment. Omar responded really quickly and hurray for their flexibility, since I asked 3 days prior to arrival and only needed a stay for 1 night. Comfy bed (room is small but what more do you need?), nice shower, good location (next to J train and great spots within walking distance) and homey feeling. Thanks for the apple pie guys!

  • The reviews are constantly good for a reason. No need to reinvent the jetpack there, so I'll use this space to recommend this spot for anyone driving in. Parking was absurdly easy to find, right out front during most of the day and when I got in at 2:30am I easily found parking not a half block away. Also, the black out times for street cleaning days don't start until 11:30am, giving you plenty of time to move your car if you for some reason couldn't get a spot on at the other side of the street.

  • The Omar and Martin's apartment was a great place to stay. Cosy, clean, stylish and well located. Omar and Martin are very friendly and they care about your comfort. I highly recommend this place.

  • My girlfriend and I met up in New York and stayed at Omars apartment. The apartment is a cute 2 bedroom in the Bushwick area and is very close to the J and the G train stops (about 5-8 min walk). Omar made sure we had everything we needed that included easy instructions regarding locking the door, towels, clean sheets etc. The apartment is on the 4th floor so if you have issues going up stairs that may be something to consider. The room is on the smaller side and the bed that we stayed on was not very comfortable. But other than that everything else was ok. Omar was away on a trip when we stayed but he was always available by text if we had any questions.

  • Very nice apartment: clean, tidy, bright, ... We were given some space in the fridge and on the shelves, and could use everything around the kitchen, which was great! Omar and Martin were very nice, quiet and helpful.

  • The apt is just a few blocks away from the metro stop (Flushing Ave.) and walking distance to hip restaurants like Moto and Robertas (recommended by Omar, who is a very accommodating host). The room is perfect for 1 or 2 people... and has a/c for those hot summer days! The place is really clean and highly recommended :)
