About this listing
A colorful apartment in an equally colorful neighborhood. Williamsburg is a terrific area in Brooklyn and only a stone throw away from Manhattan and Queens. I'd love to share this wonderful neighborhood and incredible city with you.
The apartment is located off Bedford Avenue (one of the more popular streets in the area) in Prime Williamsburg.
You get a private room with lots of natural light in clean apartment. The room has a full sized bed, a dresser, a closet along with a desk and chair.
This is a laid back apartment with friendly, helpful hosts. The space is cleaned regularly and between guest(s).
You will have access to all the amenities in the apartment:
clean towels and linen
first aid kit
This is your temporary home away from home so please make yourself comfortable.
Interaction with Guests
This is my home; you will see me during your visit. I will happily show you around the neighborhood and make suggestions.
This is a really amazing, safe area in Brooklyn close to the waterfront with great energy. The neighborhood is considered very trendy with a lot of artists, musicians and unconventional types. There is a lot happening in this neighborhood - restaurants, bars, music venues, movie theaters, shopping, bike rental, grocery store, laundromat, two parks all in walking distance, etc.; you will not be bored. The guidebook is a work in progress since there are so many things to do.
The apartment itself is near three subway lines all one stop from Manhattan and several bus lines.
Taxi cabs are frequently in the neighborhood and there are two cab companies within walking distance of the apartment.
Not many rules but here they are:
No smoking inside the apartment
Please keep the common areas - living room, kitchen, bathroom clean (i.e. wash dishes after using)
Communicate the time of check-in and check out via airbnb prior to your arrival, this way arrangements can be made for key exchange.
Leave the room as clean as you found it.
Only those reserving the room are expected to stay (sleep overnight) in the apartment.
The middle shelf in the fridge is yours. The middle shelf in the medicine cabinet is also for you and the bottom shelf on the shower caddy is yours
Please remember that we have entered into a mutually beneficial arrangement. That said manners - please, thank you, excuse me and overall civilized behavior is much appreciated.
Enjoy your stay :-)
Excellent rental. Everything was as described in the ad. Anika was a great host. She is very friendly, gracious, and accommodating. The apartment was very close to transportation and right in the heart of all the bars and restaurants in Williamsburg.excellent location. I would stay again.
Great host! The bed room was perfect for my needs. Few minor annoyances that included loud air conditionin unit. Bed a bit lumpy & creaky. And the small bathroom floor mat was a bit old & flat!
The room window faces the east so morning sunlight awoke me each morning especially since the air unit was in the window and obstructed the blinds from coming all the way down.
All in all my stay was adequate for the price and great considering PRIME location and Anika being a friendly very helpful host overshadowed the minor inconveniences, after all it is NY & I stayed in the center of bustling BK!
Great location and could not have asked for a better host! she offered to walk me around the neighborhood and showed me a very cool beer garden which I loved!
Had a great time! Room was clean and comfortable, and Anika was easy to communicate with.
We had a great stay with Anika! The apartment was clean, and Anika was very helpful with recommendations for where to eat. The location could not have been better. The apartment is situated on a quiet, residential block, so it's not too loud. But it's just half a block in either direction to get to some great restaurants and bars. It's also just a short walk to the subway station and one subway stop from Manhattan. I would definitely recommend this place.
My favorite Airbnb place in Brooklyn. The place is exactly what the pictures look like in fact the pictures don't do justice. Very clean! Both Brian and Anika are great hosts. Great location, tons of bars and restaurants. Steps away from the L train.
I had a great stay at Anika's place. The room is exactly as shown in the pictures, with two windows the provide natural light and air. The bed is comfortable and the desk is very useful if you carry a laptop and plan on working as I did. Anika was very nice and welcoming and provided useful information. One thing to notice is the A/C which is a bit noisy and therefore I chose to turn it off during sleep so it got a bit sweaty.
Overall great location and a very nice room with a good value-for-money.
We had a lovely stay with Anika for our short trip to New York. The apartment is just as it's described - clean, colourful and spacious. Although we did not meet Brian, Anika was a great host, contacting us in advance to ensure a smooth check-in, and always helpful and friendly.
The location is ideal for Brooklyn, right in the heart of vibrant Williamsburg, close to the subway or a nice, long walk across the bridge into Manhattan. We would definitely choose to stay with Anika again. Highly recommended.

About the Host, Anika
I am friendly housemate who grew up in NYC. As a Register Nurse my schedule can be unpredictable. On my days off I enjoy exploring the cultural and social richness - museums, restaurants, live music and amazing people that this city provides both in my neighborhood and the rest of NYC.
