About this listing
Situated on McCarren park, this large luxurious 1 Bedroom 1.5 Bath is at the center of the action in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Steps from all the bars and restaurants on Bedford Ave. Enjoy a gourmet kitchen, doorman, roof deck access, and close proximity to Manhattan via the L subway line.
The apartment has floor to ceiling windows with southern exposures and view of Brooklyn. The direct elevator access make for a dramatic entry. Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf range, and black granite countertops. DWR theater sofa, with 50" Plasma TV with Cable TV and DVD. Marble vanities in bathrooms, lighted magnifying makeup mirror, Zuma soaking tub and slate-tiled shower in master bath.
Common roof deck with sweeping views of Manhattan skyline and Brooklyn. Common gym area located on the roof as well.
Interaction with Guests
Minimal interaction but will provide as much contact or information as needed. Very private, quiet, relaxing.
Williamsburg is known for being a hub for trendy bars and restaurants, indie music venues, vintage clothing, and a vibrant art scene. Music Hall of Williamsburg and Glasslands attract both big name and smaller indie bands. Some excellent restaurants are Five Leaves, El Born, Aurora, Brooklyn Star, Paté et Traditions, Traif, Cafe Mogador and Peter Luger's. The apartment is also across from the newly renovated McCarren Pool and Play Center, with Olympic sized swimming pool in the summer and ice skating rink in the winter.
5 streets from the Bedford L subway stop -- you can be in Manhattan door to door in 10 minutes. From the airport, taxis can take the BQE (Brooklyn Queens Expressway) to the Metropolitan exit and turn right on Union Ave. If you would like to use a car service, I recommend Northside Car Service, which is local to Williamsburg.
Other Things to Note
Bottled water, juice and bagels provided. A complimentary bottle of wine is given to guests staying over 4 nights. There is a fold-out twin sleeper bed as well as bedding for the couch. Sleeps 4 ( best suited for 2 adults / 2 children). Please let me know if you'll need that before you book it.
Sorry, no pets, candles, smoking or unapproved guests. Also, if you use any of the common areas, please keep them reasonably clean while you're here. Thanks!
I just can say excellent! Thanks lane for the great time, we had in your appartment.
Lane was a very courteous host. His apartment was one of my favorite airbnb stays. Our stay was perfect!
If you're on the fence about renting this place, just go ahead and book it! The apartment is stunning, and the location couldn't be better. You get the best of both worlds: a city experience with an unbelievable place to stay...our only regret is not staying longer. Forget Manhattan and enjoy Brooklyn!
This place is sweet. From the designer touches to the bagels & cream cheese and wine and chocolate upon arrival everything about our experience was spot on. The bed was super comfortable and the spacious layout makes you feel like you want to quit your own life and relocate to BK. The location is perfect and within walking distance to all of the cool eats and drinks around Williamsburg and the subway is only a few streets over so perfect for nipping over to Manhattan. I will definitely be staying here again when I am back in NYC for work or pleasure.
Such a lovely experience staying here. Wonderful location, exactly as described, and extremely clean. The host gave us a lovely tour, had extra clean linens, and complimentary bagels and drinks. I would absolutely recommend staying here and I am extremely picky.
Voici un appartement parfait pour un séjour à New York. Propre, lumineux, spacieux, bien équipé, et plein de charme, il fait bon s'y détendre après une longue journée de marche. Très bien desservi, il est à 5min du métro, et 10min d'Union Square avec la ligne L directe. De nombreux commerces (un peu chers, préférer Trader Joe's ou Wholefoodsmarket) et restaurants sont à proximité. Si vous n'êtes pas très climatisation et préférez ouvrir les fenêtres, il est quelque peu bruyant, la voie express passant à proximité. Mais le silence est d'or dans cette ville qui ne dort jamais... Et Brooklyn est nettement plus calme et reposant que Manhattan. Williamsburg, les bords de l'east river (avec les taxiboats), Dumbo, sont vraiment à découvrir. Pour une pause rafraichissante, faire également un petit tour au jardin botanique de Brooklyn.
Lane est un hôte chaleureux et prévoyant : bagels à volonté dans le congélateur, cream chese et jus d'orange pour le petit déjeuner. Une bouteille d'eau, de vin et autres boissons rafraichissantes à notre arrivée. La possibilité de rester jusqu'au soir le jour de notre départ tardif.
Merci encore à lui, nous sommes ravis de ce séjour !
This was our first experience with Airbnb, and it was all that we hoped for. The apartment was spotless and just as we imagined. We were generously provided with beverages, bagels and a bottle of wine. Although we never met, Lane was helpful and forthcoming, which made our stay frictionless. The doormen were all nice too. We can easily recommend staying at Lane's place
