Best location in Williamsburg
The apartment is located at the heart of Williamsburg, right by Bedford avenue and 2 blocks away from the Bedford subway stop on the L train. Travel distance to almost any place in Manhattan is 10 to 30 minutes maximum (East Village 10m, West Village 15m, Midtown 20-25m, downtown 20m, Central Park UES UWS is 30m).
(Also recommended in the summer, the East River ferry takes you in 10-15 mins to various locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn)
That is if you need to travel to Manhattan, because Williamsburg is a neighborhood with great energy, a variety of restaurants, art galleries, parks, flea markets, bars, music hall, small clubs and trendy shops.
The apartment itself is brand new, with high ceilings, spacious (710 sqft/65m2), clean and modern. It is incredibly bright with floor to ceiling windows, has brand new wood floor and a spacious bathroom connecting both the living-room and the bedroom.
The apartment is ideal for a couple, the bedroom has a beautiful walnut platform bed with a queen size mattress. Extra sleeping space is available in the living-room if needed with a double size new airbed.
Despite its prime location, the building is located in a quiet street with little traffic, while the apartment is facing the backyard, so it is incredibly quiet which is rare in NYC!
Looking for responsible fellow travelers who would enjoy the apartment, the neighborhood and the city in my absence. Looking forward to hearing from you.
- Fully equipped kitchen (including dishwasher)
- Washer and dryer in the apartment
- Silent AC
- There is also an internet connected TV with a blueray/DVD player and Netflix if you feel like resting home from time to time
- Clean towels and sheets provided
Prefer non-smoking, no pets. There are no other specific rules.
However I follow a no-shoes policy in the apartment to keep it cleaner and hygienic, but guests can choose to follow it or not.
Neighbors are all friendly and considerate, the building is well-managed and clean.
There is a recycling and trash room on the floor.
Alphonse and his wife's great apartment is located in the amazing area of Williamsburg with a lot of restaurants and bars. Alphonse was very helpful with his suggestions about Brooklyn life and making us feel at home.
Me and my wife had great honeymoon! Highly recommended!
Had a fantastic time with my family in Alphonse and his wife's great apartment in this amazing area in Williamsburg. Everything was as described and Alphonse was very helpful and making us feel at home. Highly recommended in every aspect!
My wife and I enjoyed 10 wonderful days in Alphonse's apartment as part of our honeymoon over the new year period. Although we didn't get to meet Alphonse in person, he was a wonderful host, making sure we made the most of our time in New York. The apartment is in a fantastic location in Williamsburg, close to the subway and all the food, shopping experiences along Bedford Avenue. The Brooklyn Brewery and Brooklyn Bowl are also a short stroll away.
We had a hassle-free holiday and if we did have any queries or questions, Alphonse would always respond to our emails within a few hours. I would recommend Alphonse's apartment to anyone looking to stay close to the action in Williamsburg. 5 stars!
An excellent choice in every respect. Specifics: great neighborhood with easy access to L train, lovely clean place, terrific bed, even appreciated the water pressure in the rain shower. Alphonse was out of the country but still attentive and responsive by email. Great choice all around.
We had a wonderful stay in Brooklyn! The apartment was very nice, comfortable and quiet. The neighborhood is fantastic - in the middle of fancy Williamsburg with a lot of restaurants and bars. And Alphonse was a wonderful host organizing our stay in perfect detail!
I had a great stay, the apartment is nice, big and clean.
Alphonse is a kind and great host

Alphonse shall consider to start as a Hotelier! Perfect arrangement! Perfect apartment! Perfect stay!
