The Space

Large beautiful 2 BR apartment located in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn. Shops, restaurants and parks down the street and it's walking distance to Williamsburg.

Convenient access to 3 subway lines (G train, 7 train and L train are all within walking distance) makes it very easy to get to Midtown or downtown Manhattan. For drivers apartment is close to Williamsburg Bridge, Ed Koch Bridge, Midtown Tunnel, 278 and 495, so it's very easy to get to just about anywhere in the 5 boros (and I have a parking space you may be able to use if you let me know in advance for a small additional fee).

The apartment is clean and spacious, with wireless internet, washer/dryer, a well kept kitchen (with a dishwasher), parking (with advance notice) and access to a nice backyard with a garden. I love this apartment, I've been here for 7 years and it's nice quiet neighborhood without being too far off the beaten path. I also have a spare bicycle that you can use while you're here. Apartment is on the ground floor so it's very easy to get in and out. Perfect for a young family, a couple, 2 couples, a roommate situation... Very flexible.

Smoking is permitted but only outside. I'm a friendly, easygoing musician, I want you to have a good stay. If you have any questions don't hesitate to reach out!

I also rent the rooms individually for shorter periods of time throughout the year, check my profile to see the other listings. I listed the entire apartment for the first time because I'm looking to go away for January/February but you can check the reviews for the individual listings to get a sense of how guests like the space.

Guest Access

Guests have full access to the apartment, including the kitchen and bathroom and backyard garden. Parking may be available right in front of the house upon request for an additional fee.

Interaction with Guests

I will be there to let you in and to see you off but otherwise will be off-site (but always available on phone or email should trouble or need arise).

The Neighborhood

Greenpoint is full of all sorts of cool little restaurants and shops. Restaurants I recommend are Paulie Gee's (pizza), Vamos Al Tequila (Mexican), Cafecito Bogota (Colombian) and Champion Coffee (Coffee and Pastries). There are lots of little boutiques along Franklin St that are worth checking out too!

Getting around

Both the G Train and 7 Train are within walking distance, giving you easy access to all points the city (as well as the B43 and B62 buses). There is a private parking spot right in front of the house that is usually available upon request.

  • Mattie is a very nice host, and also a quiet person to live with. He knows how to enjoy his life. The room is comfortable and cozy. It is very convenient to the Subway station. It is a beautiful and quiet neighborhood to stay in if you want to travel to Manhattan.

  • Mattie is a great host, very friendly and accommodating. His apartment is great and in a very nice part of Greenpoint where it's quiet but also not too far away from transit and nightlife. The room was spacious and very clean. Highly recommend staying here if you're coming to Brooklyn.

  • Mattie is a great host, very easy to communicate with and flexible with arrival and departure times.

    The room and entire apartment are really clean and the bed is crazy comfortable.

    Location was perfect for my short stay, since I spent most of time in Brooklyn, but its super close to the G which can get you anywhere in the city.

    Would recommend Mattie's place to anyone and would stay here again!

  • The room was really nice, lots odf space and privacy. Netflix is nice when you had a long day in New York.
    Mattie is friendly and helpfull. He gave us a great stay.
    The location of the room is ideal, nearby is a subway and a supermarket. You're in no time in Manhatten.

Hello! My name is Mattie, I'm songwriter, singer and musician, born in Washington DC, living in Brooklyn. I've been in New York City for 13 years and my apartment in Greenpoint for 7 years. I play soccer, cook, garden, write songs and travel. It's a nice life. :) I am fairly easygoing when it comes to hosting/guesting... I just try to be quiet, respectful and friendly. I don't drink or smoke but I also don't have a problem with people who do (as long as they don't smoke inside my house). I like helping people. If you have any questions feel free to ask!
