Interaction with Guests
We are happy to help you with any questions you may have during your stay; though, we do have an office in the same building and many guests feel they have the whole apartment to themselves.
Just across the East River from Manhattan’s bright lights is Williamsburg, one of Brooklyn's most popular and exciting neighborhoods. You can explore the lively arts, music, and boutique scene here, chill in numerous cafes, dine in some very good restaurants — and soak up the creative energy and vibe of young artists and models.
Interestingly, the hip Williamsburg scene plays out against a backdrop of old industrial buildings, modest attached homes (though punctuated by increasing numbers of expensive waterfront high rises). All of this is bordered by a long-standing residential community of Hasidim to the south and a distinctive Polish area to the north. Williamsburg is a mish-mash of cultures and vistas.
A mecca for creative energy for over a decade…If there's one neighborhood that's indicative of the "new Brooklyn," it's Williamsburg. Come take a look!
Stroll around and take in Williamsburg Street Art or enjoy easy access to Manhattan with the Bedford L Subway train. Street Parking found outside or there is a Paid Parking Garage in the building next door.

We had a really great time at Lauren&Mikos place! The room was exactly as advertised in air bnb, plenty place for the luggage and for us! Also it was very clean and nice furnished!The decoration with records is quite fun and shows only a small part of Mikos record collection which you can hear on a record player in the living room what gives you very relaxing time after a rush day in New York! Both Miko and Lauren are very helpful with restaurant tips and other interesting things like the night market! You can reach Manhattan quite easy with the L train and also from JFK airport it's quite good to find. All in all a perfect week in a very nice neighborhood with perfect hosts!
We had an extraordinary time during our stay at Miko & Laurens place. The flat is in a really cool neighborhood located in the streets of Williamsburg. Good opportunities to go out having some drinks during the night. The connection to the Subway is close too and only 20 min. from Times Square or the Center of Manhatten. Miko & Lauren are really cool hosts who can help u in all issues with the city. The stay at their place totally enhaces ur trip in New York!

A great room in Williamsburg. Close to the subway and all the facilities you could need. A home from home. Thank you Lauren and Miko
We liked our time spent in the cool area of Williamsburg. The apartment is located close to the subway and is only 2 stops away from the city. We enjoyed Miko and Lauren's place during our stay. They were a polite, relaxed couple and we appreciate their welcome us into their home.
Miko and Lauren were amazing. From the moment I got there I felt welcomed and part of the household. Miko invited me out to watch a football game and introduced me to the neighbourhood.
I was in NYC during a pretty cold, snow-filled month but the apartment was a great shelter from the storm. A great place to stay.
Staying with Miko and Lauren from the 27/12/14 to the 01/01/15 was one of the best decisions we could have made for our trip to NYC. Miko was there to meet us at the apartment and give us a tour before going to work. The apartment was everything that was advertised and extremely homely and welcoming. We met Lauren the following day on her way to work but she still had the time to help us out with where to head in Brooklyn and gave us the best directions to the L train. For the next few days we felt like we had the apartment to ourselves as when we were there we didn't see them, and there were no queues for the bathroom and we felt truly at home.The bedroom we stayed in was exactly as described with plenty of storage space for us to unpack and relax.The apartment was ideally situated and everything we needed in comfortable surroundings. Miko gave us some good tips for where to spend NYE's in Brooklyn and both were extremely helpful.
I would recommend this property and couple as hosts highly to anyone looking for somewhere outside Manhatten in the heart of Williamsburg.
