Interaction with Guests
We live upstairs in this two family home and will make every effort to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We are always around if there are any issues or questions.
We can provide maps of the area and menus to our favorite restaurants for both dine in and take out, whatever your heart desires.
Williamsburg is an incredible neighborhood with tons of great restaurants and bars. It's also very convenient to get to anywhere in Manhattan.
There are multiple parks including McCarren Park (which also has a great pool in the summer).
The Apartment is about a 5 minute walk to the Lorimer L and JMZ stations (as well as the G train). You can reach union square or the financial district within 10 minutes.
Off-street parking is available but is subject to alternate street city regulations (alternating weekdays).
Small dogs and cats are OK. We do require an extra security deposit for pets.
Absolutely no smoking indoors, but smoking in the yard is OK.
Guy nous a bien indiqué par mail avant notre départ la marche à suivre pour se rendre chez lui, en taxi ou en métro.
Il était là pour nous accueillir, l'appartement est conforme à la description et le quartier calme et reposant était parfait après de bonnes journées de marche dans Manhattan.
Les stations de métro sont proches de l'appartement, nous étions rapidement au coeur de Manhattan. Nous sommes ravis de notre première visite à New York dans ces conditions. Un grand merci à Guy.
The apartment is clean, all is as described. Guy is available and has good advice. The apartment was pleasant, and proximity of several subway line is very useful for visiting and exploring brooklyn and Manhattan.
Many thanks to Guy,
Don't hesitate to book his (website hidden): we were 4 ( 2 adults and 2 children)
Guy was terrific. He stayed in touch with us before we arrived and during our stay. We couldn't have asked for a better host.
The apartment was exactly as pictured. And is (for NYC) centrally located to the L subway line. Easy to locate, and to get to from Manhattan and other parts of Williamsburg and Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
There are children living upstairs who do get up early, and it is a basement apartment. If you are a 'late sleeper', this might not be the right place for you.
But for us, it was perfect!
Great location. Great apartment. Great host. The process was very easy and Guy was communicative and helpful. The apartment was clean and looked great (just as pictured). We would definitely stay there again.
The photos don't lie -- this is a good-looking and comfortable space in a nice location. We had a comfortable stay with a five-year-old in tow and were especially pleased to have a kitchen and eating area, not to mention a comfortable pull-out for the kid. While we did spend most of our time out of the apartment, we did use the cable TV and wi-fi when needed.
Unfortunately it was a bit too chilly this March to really take advantage of the private backyard, but I'm sure it's a plus when it's not barely above freezing outside. Speaking of which, this is a tiled basement room, so if you're here in colder months you might want to bring slippers or thick socks. You can adjust the temperature, though, which is great!
(You'll also need to bring your own toiletries as this isn't an Airbnb rental that provides them, but that's something you might do anyway when travelling.)
Guy is a proactive host, responding to emails very quickly and always making sure you have the necessary information in advance -- directions to the apartment, tips about the space and the neighbourhood, as well as maps and a few menus. It's easy enough to discover the surrounding area for yourself, though. Pretty much everything you need is within walking distance, too, and it's a short subway ride into Manhattan.
We had a fine time in this apartment and recommend it, particularly if you have a kid or two. There is at least one child living upstairs, and you'll occasionally hear the patter of little feet in the earlier hours of the morning, but it's not disruptive and if you have kids yourself it's just par for the course. Plus, you're in Brooklyn, there's traffic and there are loud passersby and that's just the way it is. It's actually not as rowdy as it could be, honestly.
Enjoy your stay!
P.S. In response to a previous review from Karen, there is a full-length mirror in the apartment now, and it comes in handy for sure.
P.P.S. Thanks again to Guy for letting us check out a bit later than the standard! We really appreciate it.
