The Space

*** Please message me to inquire about availability before sending a Reservation Request***

I have 3 beautiful bedrooms available in a 4 bedroom apartment in trendy and charming Williamsburg, Brooklyn. If you're interested, please contact me even if the calendar shows as booked.

Just 4 blocks from the Bedford Avenue stop on the L line (a mere 5 minutes from Manhattan), the location can’t be beat. What’s more, this neighborhood has been featured as one of the new spots to visit while in New York City. There are plenty of boutiques, small businesses and art galleries as well as delicious restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. Plus two parks, one with a variety of activities and a weekly green market, and the other with a beautiful view of the East River and the Manhattan skyline.

Speaking of which, the rooftop in the building is equipped with a deck, chairs and even grills… and another postcard view of the Manhattan skyline.

The room

Bright and spacious, this private bedroom is the perfect place to stop for a few days. Whether you want to relax or go out to the city, you will have an inviting place to come back to at the end of the day.

The bedroom is furnished with a bed, a small night table, and a built-in closet and has a bit of extra room for anything else you might want to bring.

The apartment

The kitchen is well equipped with a full-size fridge and a new stove, and you’re welcome to make use of them anytime. A variety of teas are available.

The bathroom is spacious, has tons of storage and a full bath tub for those cold days in which you need to thaw out with a bath. The showerhead has 6 different settings for a spa-like experience. Towels, and natural hygiene products (shampoo, body wash and conditioner) are included in your rate.

The large living room is bathed in light from huge windows. There is a lending library that you’re invited to make use of.

Wireless internet is secure, and there is free laundry in the building. All of this is included in your rate as well.

From time to time, there will be workshops on spirituality, yoga, food, art, massage and other interesting subjects held in the living room. You're welcome to participate as part of your stay in this oasis in the middle of bustling NYC. Healing, Massage, and Life Coaching sessions are also available at an additional cost.

Guest Access

I want my guests to feel at home, so please feel free to keep stuff in the fridge, cook in the kitchen, chill in the living room, or take a relaxing bath. You'll also have access to free laundry in the building, as well as a fabulous rooftop with a breathtaking view of the Empire State building and the midtown Manhattan skyline.

Interaction with Guests

This is where I live, and I like it to feel homey. That means I enjoy interacting with my guests, making them feel at home and sometimes hanging out or going to brunch together. Not a requirement, but it's nice to connect with the people you're sharing your living space with!

Also, I'm always available to answer questions about the neighborhood, restaurants, things to do, etc.

The Neighborhood

Our location can't be beat! We are located in one of the best neighborhoods, and one of the best parts of the neighborhood.
It's actually really hard to go to a restaurant that serves mediocre food around here. Cafe Mogador, Sweetwater, Egg, 5 Leaves, Sea, Chai Thai, El Almacen are a few of my favorite.

There's so many gourmet coffee shops with ridiculously good coffee that it's hard to decide which one to go to sometimes. And Bakeri, a European style coffee shop and bakery is less than a block away and so good! Guests often like to grab their continental breakfast there (and so do I!).

Designer boutiques with interesting and fun clothes and gifts abound, and health food stores stay open until midnight so you can have a fresh young coconut or fresh-pressed green juice on your way home from dinner.

Plus, we are a block away from the East River State Park, which hosts the Brooklyn Flea market and Smorgasburg, two awesome not-to-be-missed attractions that tourists and locals from all over the city come for.

We're also 5 blocks from McCarren park, with its track field, tennis courts, and the farmers' market on Saturdays.

This neighborhood feels homey and like a small town with small businesses that have tons of character. The people-watching is fantastic, and it has a laid-back vibe… yet we're only 5 minutes from Union Square in Manhattan!

Getting around

The Bedford Avenue stop on the L line is only 4 blocks from the apartment, and it will take you into Manhattan within 5 minutes. Pretty much anything you would want to go to is 15-20 minutes away.

Off-street parking is available, though you'd have to make sure to move your car to the right side of the street every couple of days to avoid tickets.

Directions from JFK:
To get here, the cheapest way would be to take the subway.
1) Take the AirTrain to Howard Beach station
2) Take the A train towards Manhattan.
3) Get off at Broadway Junction and transfer to the L train towards Manhattan
4) Get off at the Bedford Avenue station (the last station before Manhattan)
5) Walk 2 blocks north to N 9 Street
6) Make a left on N 9 Street and walk 2 more blocks

The trip normally takes about 1 1/2 hours, and it cost $7 per person..

For the fastest way, take a taxi, which is usually about $35-40.

Lastly, the medium option is to take a door-to-door airport shuttle, which I believe is about $15 per person (but I've never taken it so I don't really know).

    The appartment is close to the Metro, restaurants, caffes and to everything you need! bedford av. is only 10 min away from Union sq. by metro so you can reach Manhattan very easily.
    the appartment and the room are spacious and bright! maybe the room is a bit too bright in the morning but it is fine!
    Melody is a very nice host! Definitely a very good place for your holidays in New York!

  • The place is perfect! walking distance to L train at Bedford, so you reach manhattan in a few minutes, that is the best. Also Williamsburg neighborhood is beauty and fun. The apartment is sunny, safe and big. Melody is a great host, so I'm very happy to have been there.

    November 2013
  • Melody's place is a perfect stay for everyone who wants to visit NYC! I would definitely recommend others to stay here! The apartment is light, spacy and very conveniently located in Williamsburg, a very hip and upcoming area close to Manhattan. Only 1 metro stop away from Manhattan. I only stayed for 3 nights, but I had the pleasure meeting Melody a few times. She's a real warm and charming person to stay with.

    October 2013
  • Melody' place is perfect for a stay in NYC. In the vibrant Williamsburg is few meters from Hudson River and two block from the lively Bedford avenue, just 1 metro stop to
    Manhattan. The room is bright and cozy.
    Melody is a perfect host and it would definitely recommend

    October 2013
  • I loved this bright room at Melodys a lot! It's just a ten minute ride with the l train from manhattan and only a few steps from nicest cafés, restaurants, little grocery stores. There is also a rooftop with a spectacular view on manhattan. Melody herself is such a sweet and kind person. It was really a pleasure meeting her, having nice little chats although she was really busy at that time! I will always try to come back to her place the next times!

    October 2013
  • I'm really like this room.
    Since the sunlight from outside was strong, I wanted curtain.
    I certainly stay, when going to NY again.
    And it is in a very good place.

    September 2013
  • We recently stayed with Melody. The apartment is very well located and the rooms are big and spacious. But the whole house needed a very good clean. The bathrooms very particularly dirty with dust and hair everywhere and the sink and bath needed a good scrub too.

    Melody was lovely on arrival and very helpful but then the next few days was very quiet and introverted. It made us feel uncomfortable at times because we felt we had to walk on eggshells around her.

    The room is great and it's a great location! But I would suggest that she improves the cleaning and be more consistent with her friendliness.

    May 2013
  • We had a very nice stay. The apartment only 5 min away from the metrostation.
    Melody is a nice host.
    However, the bathroom was not very welcoming. It needs to be cleaned more often.

    May 2013
  • La ubicación del departamento es muy buena!! Hay bares, restaurantes y negocios en general, tiene el subte a 3 cuadras y en solo 10 minutos estas en manhattan. Las habitaciones son comodas, la cocina y el baño tambien :) Melody fue muy buena anfitriona y nos ayudo en lo que necesitabamos.

    May 2013
  • My stay was great! Melody was very friendly and welcoming and the apartment was perfect for my trip. It's in a great location and I would highly recommend it.
