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.

Easy transaction, and a nice room in the apartment. Amazing location by McCarren Park makes it super close to all the best of Williamsburg.
The apartment was nice and clean and in an excellent location close to everything in Williamsburg.
Miko & Lauren were very flexible with us and made us feel home in their apartment.
We would definitely recommend this to all our friends!
Miko and Lauren were fantastic! They were really friendly and offered really great advice for conquering the big city. The apartment was really funky, great décor. The location was the perfect spot to jump into Manhattan and cruise around Brooklyn.
The room was clean and the bed was super comfortable! There was use of an Iron which was (website hidden) is there if the room gets warm in the summer and ample storage for your gear. There was another room that was rented out to other travellers which we didn't really see at all. There was never a wait for use of the toilet.
We didn't spend a whole lot of time in the room or apartment, as you do in NYC, but when we were there, Miko and Lauren, when they were there, always made us feel extra welcome. (the morning coffee was a great addition for caffeine junkies like us, and great coffee too) We highly recommend staying at their spot!
Thanks again Miko and Lauren for the great experience!
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!
