About this listing
The hippest neighborhoods in NYC: Chelsea, SoHo, Tribeca, Williamsburg... and now Bushwick. Live in a 1900 town house that has been newly-renovated - only 15 minutes away from Manhattan, in a gorgeous rooftop apartment with the finest, most modern amenities. Rustic hipster meets Danish-Austrian design.
Private bedroom with skylight in a gorgeous rooftop apartment in Bushwick.
The apartment is in a newly-renovated WALK-UP (READ: NO ELEVATOR) building and built with the highest standards - hardwood floors, rustic versus urban furniture, bedroom with skylight and a sunny living room facing the gorgeous private rooftop.
Your private bedroom features a queen-sized bed, nightstand and closet space with hangers for your wardrobe.
The living room features rustic and modern furniture and a large brand-new couch that sleeps a third traveler if necessary. You will also have state-of-the-art washer and dryer in the building.
You will be provided with clean linens and fresh towels; depending on the length of stay, they will be changed on a weekly basis.
- Free Wi-Fi connection
- A thoughtfully-designed bedroom with hip, urban, rustic furniture and the most comfortable mattress that you may never want to leave
- Washer and dryer in the building
- Private rooftop and access to the main rooftop to enjoy beautiful sunsets
The apartment is well-connected through public transport:
- J train is a block away; takes you to Manhattan in less than 15 minutes
... and only walking/biking distance to Williamsburg, featuring great restaurants, bars and shops.
My neighborhood also offers you many opportunities:
- 5-minute walking distance to several small restaurants, cafes, bar/event space, vegan bakery and an organic supermarket
- 3-minute walking distance to the pharmacy (Walgreens)
- A large shopping street close by
- Easy access to street parking since we mostly just bike
For further questions, please feel free to contact me any time - looking forward to hosting you!
You will have access to my private roof deck. No other tenants in the building has access to it, just me and my guests.
The kitchen is equipped with all the essentials required for your culinary needs, be it a quick breakfast or a romantic dinner on the private rooftop. My guests are welcome to use all the amenities in the kitchen:
** Oven, stove, refrigerator
** Espresso maker and coffee maker
** Pots, pans, utensils, plates, glasses, kettle
I've also started providing a little something extra:
** A variety of coffee from my travels (specifically from the Philippines) and teas
** Bananas or apples, granola bars, crackers
Interaction with guests
Please take note that I'm renting out a private room in a 2-bedroom apartment. So you'll be sharing the living room, bathroom, kitchen and patio with me. I'm away most of the time for work in the city but there may be times that we'll have breakfast together.
A cozy cafe a few blocks from the apartment will be perfect for brunch: Sunrise/Sunset on 351 Evergreen Avenue. If you're willing to walk further and you like a grungy, more hipstery coffee place, try Little Skips (941 Willoughby Ave.)
Gates Avenue station is 2-minute walking distance from the apartment and it takes 15 minutes to get to Lower Manhattan.
It takes about an hour from JFK to get to my place by subway and about 30 mins by taxi.
If you want to take the subway, take the AirTrain to Jamaica Center (get off at Sutphin Blvd) then transfer to the J train to Gates Ave. Turn right on Grove St.
Please don't forget to turn off all the lights and the AC/heater unit when you leave during the day.
Please put dirty dishes, glasses and utensils in the dishwasher.
Absolutely no smoking allowed. If you have to smoke on the patio, please make sure that the smell doesn't get into the apartment (it has happened before) and that cigarette butts aren't left anywhere.
I moved to Brooklyn three years ago and have been hosting since. I love to read, practice yoga, travel and browse through endless rustic and vintage furniture in flea markets all over New York City and upstate.
I speak 3 languages (Filipino, English and Spanish) and working on my fourth, which is French. Je peut parler Français avec vous et bon séjour a New York. Mabuhay, welcome y bienvenido a New York!
