About This Listing
GREAT location in Williamsburg, central to the Lorimer L (5 blocks), Metropolitan G (5 blocks), Marcy JMZ (3 blocks) and Bedford L (11 short blocks).
Friend and family friendly. This is for the entire 2br apartment, each room can sleep up to 2 people, and one on the couch or the provided air mattress, so 5 people total!! VERY family friendly!!
Beautiful layout, exposed brick and stainless steal kitchen too!!! Nice sized, fully furnished and recently renovated, both bedrooms are on opposite sides of the apartment, and the apartment is yours only, *no roommates*! This is located on a very nice, tree-lined and quiet block so close to the best trains in Williamsburg.
Other Things to Note
Wash your dishes as you go please!! No smoking in the apartment. Check in is after 5pm and check out time is by noon. Further arrangements can be made with enough notice, however. Linens and towels are provided folded on beds so you can rest assured they are fresh. 3
PLEASE NOTE: A complete house guide is provided at booking, please read. ;)
Firstly, Alyssa is a great host. She responded promptly to our request for an extra towel and help with WiFi, and stayed in touch until these were sorted - including a final text to check all was ok. Her manner was always friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you, Alyssa!
The location is quite close to the subway stations, and a short walk to the attractions of Williamsburg. The nearby coffee shop, Knife, was great, and there are lots of convenience stores. (We can recommend Pies 'n' Thighs for a delicious dinner!)
The flat is a good size and it was great having two bedrooms. It's not quite like the photos - it's a bit shabbier. Everything was clean and simple to use. We were a bit underwhelmed by the decor - scrappy fabric at the windows instead of blinds/curtains, thin blankets under a bare duvet (in one room), wobbly dining chairs, lumpy pillows. I dropped something under the bed but didn't go too far underneath there as it was pretty dusty (but clean around the edges!). We both felt it was a bit like staying in a student flat; if it was given a bit of a revamp it could be a very stylish place to hang out!
On our last night (a Thursday) the flat below played really loud music late into the night. No one's fault, just a shame when we needed to sleep on a work night. The building and the street was otherwise pretty peaceful, even with the windows open.
Generally, I'd recommend this apartment for what it is: a good-sized cheaper option on the edges of Williamsburg, with a lovely host.
Nous ne regrettons pas notre choix d'appartement: quoique doté d'un confort spartiate, l'appartement est bien situé, dans un quartier calme car apparemment familial. Il est à 5 min du métro Marcy et 10-15 min du quartier vivant de Williamsburg. Alyssa a toujours été à l'écoute de nos besoins, du début à la fin du sejour. Merci à elle.
Alyssa was a great host. Sorted any issues we had quickly and the apartment was as described.
The location was great and I would recommend to others!
Host Alyssa responded to our texts when we arrived and when we had complaints. Small apartment but manageable. Be aware: third floor, no elevator, narrow staircase. It was nice to have a small living room to visit with our family. Close to subway and restaurants and shopping on Bedford Avenue. Best bagels at Williamsburg Bagels!!
My first visit to NY was amazing especially thanks to Alyssa and her lovely apartment. Contact was easy and everywhere is easy to get to from her place too. Thank you! There's also a lovely little coffee shop just down the road called Knife - I recommend the place!

About the Host, Alyssa
I'm kind of a snowbird! I live between Brooklyn, NYC and Jacksonville, Florida. Like most New Yorkers, I travel A LOT, which is how I have multiple dwellings, and always love coming back to my neighborhoods. There really is nowhere like it. As you can tell, my places are decorated very nicely, Americana-meets-Victorian, with a splash of medieval and modern thrown in. I have amazing hosting reviews on airbnb, so feel free to ask ANY questions you may have and definitely read my other reviews. Would be happy to host you, I always try to make your trip a great experience!!!
