About This Listing
Two blocks from the subway and SO close to the famous Williamsburg "hipster" scene, this cozy, private apartment is perfect for a couple looking to experience all NYC has to offer and still go home to a safe, quiet place of their own.
I am constantly leaving town and would love to share my beautiful furnished apartment in South Williamsburg! My schedule is always changing, so email me and we'll figure something out!
The rate is as follows: $110/night for two people. Each extra person is $15 extra per night.
The bedroom is of moderate size with a VERY comfortable full size bed and access to a fire escape, overlooking the tree-lined street. The closet in there won't be available for your use, but the large living room closet will be available to you.
The kitchen is well-equipped for any cooking needs you may have, and you are more than welcome to use any condiments and spices you find. You also have access to my window herb garden! I just ask you water the plants once every three days, please. The bathroom has a toilet, shower/tub, and sink.
The large living room has another mirroring fire escape out the living room window too, so take your pick! When all the windows are open, you get a wonderful breeze throughout the apartment. It's a great relaxing sanctuary. And if you're the type that likes to stay warm in the winter, the apartment stays VERY warm thanks to heating in every room.
The BEST part about this place is its location! Less than two blocks from the Marcy JMZ, you are in the Lower East Side in less than five minutes, Chinatown in 10, Financial district in 15 [via the J], Chelsea in 20 [via the M], and JFK airport in 30! You can walk to the Bedford Ave stop on the L train within 20 minutes, right in the heart of hip Williamsburg!
Please respond back to this email with a little something about yourself and a link to myspace or (website hidden) if you have one. Good luck with your room search! Peace!
Please water my little plants and smoke only in the living room! Also, the toilet is sensitive, so ONLY toilet paper goes in the toilet! I mean it! Absolutely anything else will make it overflow! Also, smoking is allowed, but please keep it in the living room and try to remember to open a window. Thanks!
Quirky and original place in an interesting area! Communication wasn't the best though it worked out in the end.
This place is just as described - great access to the metro via the Marcy Ave metro stop (only a 3 min walk from the apartment). It's in a safe, Hasidic Jewish neighborhood with a lot of families and children playing outside. It's about a 5-10 minute walk to the very hip and cool Williamsburg area. The apartment was a perfect size - not too small - just enough space needed for my husband and I to have a comfortable stay. I would definitely recommend this place to others who are looking for a place to stay in Brooklyn while still being able to easily access Manhattan! We didn't get to meet Christiana because she was on vacation in the Bahamas, however she was still very communicative when we were arriving - making sure we made it in okay. Overall, a pleasant apartment, with a homey-vibe in the heart of Brooklyn.
Cute little bohemian apartment in a very convenient spot and super affordable for a one bedroom. Stayed by myself for three nights and felt totally safe and comfortable. Christiana was a good host, pretty easy to stay in contact with and was always eager to help and accommodate me. Thanks Christiana :)
Great location for getting downtown & exploring outer Williamsburg. Cute place with all the amenities. Walking distance from some great bars & restaurants & the hipper parts of Williamsburg.
Notre séjour dans l'appartement de Christiana s'est bien passé. Il est très bien situé. A 2 minutes à pieds du metro. Rapide et facile de rejoindre Manhattan et les autres quartiers de Brooklyn. Bonne taille pour 2 personnes.
En revanche, nous avons trouvé que l'endroit n'était pas très propre (exceptée la salle de bain). Nous avons dû relaver la vaisselle avant de l'utiliser. L'équipement de la cuisine est minimal. Nous n'avons pas réussi à faire fonctionner le wifi (à cause de nos cellulaires ?).
Même si nous n'avons pas vu Christiana, notre arrivée et notre départ se sont très bien passés.
Christiana's apartment was the perfect base for 11 nights in New York. It really felt like home and was always warm and cozy to come back to after a cold December day. I can't stress enough how close this place is to transport either!! The JMZ station is literally around the corner and the M train takes you straight to all the main spots like the Rockefeller Centre, 5th avenue shopping etc. Getting to Manhattan was easier than I could ever have imagined! Walking to Bedford avenue restaurants and bars was an easy 15 minutes as well if you want to hang around Williamsburg. Really sad to be leaving this place!! Thanks for being such a great host Christiana. Hopefully we'll be back one day :)
