Amazing location - quiet residential street right on the border of the best of what Williamsburg has become famous for and the New York melting pot, that is a mix of Jews, Latins, and the last wave of new residents flooding the neighborhood in the last decade. The South side has a bit of a New York edge, but is totally safe and friendly. The building is owned by Hasidic Jews, who live in the building too. The entrance of the building tends to be a bit messy, but once in the apartment everything is sparkling clean and nice.
There are dozens of restaurants, and Cafes within easy walking distance, progressive music, art, art galleries, gourmet food, unique boutiques carrying clothing, and sleek new product designs, avant-garde book store, etc.

Had a great time at Margarita's apartment whilst looking for a place to settle permanently in New York. She had excellent communication and we had no troubles getting in contact to meet and get the keys. All in all, a very enjoyable stay.
Our stay here was perfect. The apartment's in a great location, comfortable and full of character. Margot was very accommodating and helpful... I can't think of one negative thing to say!
Really enjoyed my stay at Margot's apartment. It was as described, clean and very comfortable. Great location, walking distance to the necessities, had no issues or difficulty with noise however I guess that would depend on the person. Very easy to communicate with Margot, and enjoyed her recommendations for things to check out in Brooklyn. Would stay there again and recommend it to others.
My mother and I had a great time in this lovely apartment. We spent about a week there, Margot was helpful and always in touch.
The neighborhood is a little far from the center of Williamsburg, but it's in walking distance and it's still very convenient thanks to a good subway connection - you're in Manhattan in no time.
The flat was really cute and rather spacious for NY. The building, however, is not as well maintained.
Overall, nice experience!
This is the first time I rented a flat with Airbnb, so I have not much to compare with. Margot is a very helpful host. Her apartment is easy to stay in and there is pretty much all you need to have a good stay in New York. Close to the subway, shopping and the trendy part of Williamsburg. Bear in mind that this is not Manhattan but Brooklyn and the neighborhood colourful. I can only recommed Margot's place and especially if you want to see a different part of town.
Though far from ideal, Margot's apartment is a perfectly fine place to stay if you know what you're getting into. The noise level is quite high from prximity to the on/offramp to the Williamsburg Bridge, the neighborhood is a bit dodgier than some may be comfortable with, turn-over of the apartment happened later than advertised, and bedding was stained (though clean sheets on top).
I spent only one of four planned nights before seeking other accomodation. The apartment was not as expected/described and below the standard I've found in more than a dozen other AirBnBs, but by no means unliveable. I imagine with some tweaks to the description it could be a perfect fit for the right traveler.
It seems like Matt doesn't appreciate the New York melting pot mix. The apartment is located right at the start of the Jewish hasidic community, the area is mainly Jewish families, some latinos, and artists. I'm not sure why he calls it a dodgy neighborhood, but I can say that this side of Williamsburg has been untouched by the real state boom which starts on Broadway. This area was how Williamsburg has been since I've arrived in the neighborhood in 1998- I also thought it was a bit dark- but as a student on a tight budget- became a world of possibilities living in a huge loft. FYI of history The Hasidic jewish here, own the north side as well, but the Rabi forbid them from developing below Broadway, thus this side has remained pretty much untouched.
