I love accommodating my guests, if you need anything during you stay I am always just a phone call away - There is nothing too big or too small.
Feel free to message me with any questions! I promise to make sure you have the most wonderful stay!
Our neighborhood is a quiet residential area within East Williamsburg. Just one or two stops on the subway and you can brunch and bike away the day and lounge and drink away the night in Williamsburg's infinitely hip warehouse-turned-loft Brooklyn neighborhood. Williamsburg is a food, drink, and music lover’s paradise. This ultra-trendy neighborhood completes its super cool repertoire with alternative-looking street art and two-story murals. Ask me for my list of neighborhood favorites!
The Montrose L subway stop is just 1 block away. You can take this to other areas within Williamsburg (Bedford Stop is a 5 minute ride on the subway) or straight to Union Square (less than 15 minutes away). From Union Square you can easily access all of Manhattan (Times Square, MoMA, World Trade Center are all 30 min away by subway).
Please shut the windows and lock the door when you are not in the apartment.
If you have booked for longer than 5 days, please water the plants.
Please do NOT flush feminine products, paper towel, napkins, etc. down the toilet. The only thing that can be flushed is toilet paper.
Please try and turn off the lights and the air conditioning when you are not in the apartment to help conserve energy.
If you need anything at all or if there is anything that I can do or provide to make you stay more enjoyable - do not hesitate to ask. I am happy to accomodate you!
And most importantly, have a wonderful time!!!
Fantastic spot at fantastic price. No complaints, couldn't hear any neighbors at all (that's not always the case in NYC), and steps to the L train to shoot train into midtown NYC. Would stay again without hesitation!
Great location, overall we enjoyed our visit. There were however a few small maintenance issues which didn't overly affect our stay, but they were somewhat inconvenient. In spite of having been advised of the problem and promising us they'd have someone out to fix the situation, (bathroom door was broken and wouldn't close) the issue was not resolved while we were there. Nevertheless we still took full advantage of this apartments great neighbourhood and super convenient access to the subway. We would recommend this property.
This was my first airbnb experience and it was perfect. The apartment was extremely clean, exactly as described, and very comfortable. Amia was very responsive and provided all of the information needed to make the check in/out process easy. The neighborhood is super walkable and the apartment is right around the corner from the L, so it was very convenient. I also really appreciated that we could leave our bags in the apartment for a few hours after checkout. Thank you!
Amia was a good host in advance of our visit, answering our questions promptly and providing lots of information about how to get to the flat and amenities in the local area. When we got there we were pleased with the location, in particular its closeness to Montrose metro station and to all the fun that Grand Street has to offer. From Montrose station, Manhattan is only a 15 minute train ride.
The flat has two comfortable beds, a good shower and a clean, well-provisioned kitchen. Unfortunately, the flat also has two problems, which need to be fixed before anyone else should consider staying in it.
Most important of these is the bathroom, where the door does not close because half of the door-frame is missing. Not having the privacy of a bathroom door you can close is a pretty fundamental issue and one we should have been made aware of before we booked the flat.
In addition, the air-conditioning unit in one room was broken so that it essentially became a hole in the wall through which cold air was able to blow all night. A blanket sellotaped over it solved the issue, but this kind of fix should not have been necessary.
Overall, this is a good flat for those who want a clean and private base of operations to explore Manhattan while also enjoying Brooklyn, but I would not recommend staying there until the issues above have been addressed.
The place was great. Exactly as described. Amia made me feel very welcome. The apartment is very very close to the subway. I really recommend this place
EVTH WAS OK. APT WAS CLEAN. AREA IS SAFE AND CLOSE TO SUBWAY, BUT NOT CLEAN AS THE APT. 20 MINUTES BY L-LINE TO UNION SQR. GOOD FOR ECONOMIC STAY.
We had a wonderful experience in NYC. Amia's apartment was neat and clean and we found the beds to be comfortable and inviting after a long day of walking. My son slept on the air mattress which he said was comfortable also. We loved the fact that we could just walk around the corner to the subway L Train. It was also nice to have the deli just at the top of the subway steps if we needed milk or anything else. Amia was very accommodating and communication back and forth was very quick if we needed anything. Staying in Brooklyn was a nice NY experience. Thank you so much Amia and Phil!!

My name is Amia. I am a filmmaker and work in the arts. I've been traveling since I was a kid and love to visit new places and meet new people. Since joining AirBnb I have had a great experience being a host to people from all over the world at my lovely Brooklyn apartment. It has been my pleasure making sure my guests have a wonderful time while they're visiting New York City, and I try to accommodate everyone as best as I possible can.
I love art, I love music, I love good food and good company. So, if you have any questions about the neighborhood (restaurants, bars, parks, etc) please feel free to ask!
I can't wait to share my apartment with you!
