About this listing
A private room and bathroom in a gorgeous apartment in Williamsburg's Northside. Only 15 minutes by subway to Manhattan, but Brooklyn has everything you might need to eat, drink, shop, and have fun.
The apartment has a very unique and beautiful view of a church, not what you would expect in Brooklyn. You will feel completely at home in the apartment, with your own ensuite bathroom. Located 4 blocks from the L train, Manhattan is only 15 minutes away. If you're interested in checking out Williamsburg, the apartment is located 1 block from McCarren park, 5 blocks from the Waterfront, steps from restaurants, bars, music venues, secondhand stores, and boutique shops. We are in the city that never sleeps and there is always something happening.
Guest have full use of the kitchen and living room. Kitchen is stocked with Keurig and a ton of other appliances and goodies. The living room has a big screen TV with tons of channels, HBO, Netflix and Showtime. You will have a private bathroom with bath and shower. In your room, you have a TV with HBO and Netflix. There is also an individual AC/Heat unit that you can program to your liking. The apartment has a gym, rec room with pool table, and rooftop access.
Interaction with Guests
I will be traveling and will be available by email. My roommate will let you in and answer any questions you may have.
Williamsburg is the best place to be in the summer and the apartment offers a superb location to the best of Northside. You will be steps away from Yoga to the People (a donation based studio). McCarren Park is nice for strolls, movie nights on Thursdays, public pool, and a green market on Saturday mornings.
There are so many amazing bars and restaurants. Refer to my guidebook for the best recommendations.
We are located 4 blocks from the L train. The L train takes you into Manhattan (14th Street) from which you can transfer to virtually all other subway lines. We are located 8 blocks from the G train. This train services Queens and South Brooklyn.
Other Things to Note
A cute cat, referenced in many of the reviews below, usually lives in the apartment but will be on vacation during your stay. While he will not be here, please note this if you have severe allergies.
Be respectful and tidy in shared spaces (kitchen and living room).
We spent an entire week in Andrea apartment. The place is wonderful, well described by pictures in the site; what is not described is the lovely welcome Andrea was able to give us and the gorgeous surround given by Bedford Avenue and Williamsburg in general.
Logistically is a perfect place to be: 3 minutes from L subway and 15 minutes from Union Square in Manatthan (three subway stops).
If someone want to experience e "different" New York not only done by lights and skyscraper, well, come in here and it's done
Wonderful room, huge private bathroom and great view. Andrea was a chilled out host and we were very comfortable sharing her place with her and Dante the cat.
Accommodation at Andrea's apartment was really nice (communication was smooth and there was no problem to check-in in late hours). It's just few steps from the train which takes you fast to the Manhattan. Around the apartment are the best coffee shops which we've visited during our stay in NYC (especially Toby's Estate and Blue Bottle). Highly recommended to all coffee lovers :)
Andrea also has a lovely cat.
The only thing that might be improved is the bathroom cleanliness, which was little grimy, possibly due to high humidity.
Anyway we highly recommend to stay there, do not hesitate, it is perfect choice.
This was my best AirBnb experience so far. I needed a place that was near my daughter's Williamsburg apt and Andrea's apt was just a few blocks away. Plus - it's only a few blocks from the "L" subway line's Bedford stop. It's only one stop away from Manhattan. Andrea's place is modern, safe, secure, spotless --- and amazingly quiet. The only surprise was the Sunday 9 a.m. church bells from the Russian Orthodox church shown in Andrea's photos. Andrea was great - I came in on a red-eye flight and she had a guest existing that morning. She juggled things around to give me access to the her place. She was very helpful with transportation tips and neighborhood suggestions. This will certainly be my first choice for future NY/Brooklyn trips. Thanks Andrea (and Dante - the way too cool cat!)
We did appreciate this nice and comfortable bedroom, enjoying a private bathroom including toilets.This accommodation is ideally situated à few blocks (5' walk) from Line L (Bedford Avenue) which is 3 stops from Union square. The contacts with Andréa were fine and efficient. We do definitly recommand this accommodation.
I had a great time @ Andrea's house. It is modern, nice, clean, for NY standards pretty quiet and comfortable.
The location is perfect for discovering Williamsburg being just a block away from Bedford Ave. Also going to Manhattan was super easy with the subway just a few blocks away.
Andrea is super friendly and very helpful.
A clear recommendation!
Die Wohnung ist Super gelegen, unweit der L-Line, die perfekte Anbindung Richtung Manhattan, trotzdem sehr ruhig. Die Nachbarschaft mit Bedford Ave. und Driggs Ave. ist auch sehr nett und bietet einige tolle Restaurants und Cafe´s. Andrea hat sofort Kontakt mit uns aufgenommen und sich auch vor Ort viel Mühe gegeben, unseren Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu gestalten. Die Wohnung verfügt über modernen Standard, das Haus bietet Fahrstuhl und Dachterasse. Würden wir wieder buchen.
About the Host, Andrea
I am from New York City. I am a teacher who loves to travel, especially during my summers offs. I love finding the hidden gems of a city, the non touristy places, that only the locals know about.
I've had such great experiences with AirBnB abroad that I've decided to host in my apartment. I love New York City and have explored every inch of this city. Consider me your personal tour guide and I will direct you to the best of the best in the city that never sleeps!
