About this listing
A comfortable and spacious room with character and high ceilings in a turn of the century townhouse centrally located in Williamsburg. Very private and quiet and just a couple of blocks from the east river. Close to the subways and Manhattan
From $79. This is a sweet and charming bedroom right in the middle of Williamsburg.
I have INSTANT BOOK so there is no need to ask if the place is available. If it is free on the calendar then it is free for booking.
The room measures 15' x 14' so is a very generous space. Queen size bed.
Very secure with a locked door.
There is complimentary tea and coffee to get you going in the mornings and a mini fridge. The bathroom will be shared with 1 other room. We clean the bathroom regularly and make sure that our guests are well looked after. This place really is right where you want to be in Williamsburg.
No cooking facilities but there are fantastic cafes and restaurants within the surrounding blocks with prices varying from budget and on upwards. Most people eat out anyway since the food is so good here.
We also have a similar smaller listing in the same house and both can be booked simultaneously for large parties.
Wifi. Mini fridge in the hallway. Coffee and tea. Hairdryer and clothes iron. There is a laundromat right across the street.
Interaction with Guests
We share the space downstairs and are always out and about. We're very happy to meet new people and give good advice about exploring the city.
I also believe that you'll just want us out of the way so you can enjoy your stay in Brooklyn.
As a matter of security, I also ask that you fill your profile out fully and add a picture before inquiring about a stay. I do not accept bookings from blank profiles. Thanks!
Williamsburg is a wonderful neighborhood. I've lived here for about 20 years and have seen it morph from an interesting backwater to the modern exciting area it is now.
It is a safe neighborhood.
There are tons of great bars and cafes and restaurants close to us including Diner, Marlow and sons and Lucky dog bar to name but a couple.
We're about 3 blocks from the water where you can catch a picturesque ferry ride to manhattan. Subways are a few blocks walk away and there is lots of free and safe street parking available.
The L and JMZ trains are a few minutes walk away. There is free parking on the street and ferries to Manhattan are close by. Bus service right on Bedford ave.
The taxi ride from JFK will be about $40. From LaGuardia it's about $25. There is also a train service from JFK airport which takes about an hour and costs about $7.
Other Things to Note
Spare sheets and towels are available.
The space really is very private since it's on another floor from us and you can choose how much you want to interact with us. We're always happy chat and help our guests out with local attractions.
No smoking . No shoes in the house.
We keep a tidy house and would like it to be returned in the same shape as you find it. Please be considerate of the neighbors and be quiet and low key. We appreciate peace and quiet from our guests.
No guests of guests.
Since we have painted floors we have a 'no shoes policy' in the rooms
We very much enjoyed our stay at Ken's place. The room and the bathroom were very clean and the bed was comfortable. Everything was well organised. We only met Ken twice and shortly but we enjoyed our encounters. The room is huge and sunny, just as described. This also goes for the early mornings, so light sleepers might bring their eye masks.
Entirely happy with the room - it is great, clean, bright, good quality! Best airbnb experience I have had to date. Description is very truthful. Host was well organized and provided good information. Location is great! Would recommend anyone visiting NYC/Brooklyn!
We had a great experience! The room was clean, the neighborhood was convienient and very fun, and the hosts were friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend!
We received good and accurate instructions well in advance as to how to access the key to the gate and room and felt very welcome with additional welcome letter waiting on our bed. The room was charming and exactly as described and pictured. Also the bathroom was roomy and very clean. Bed was very (website hidden) well working in the heat of N Y. Ken came by in the evening to make sure we didn't have any unanswered questions. The neighborhood was busy and there was a bar across the street, which had some fairly loud customer, but the noise stopped relatively early and did not affect us very much. Our general impression was that it was a very friendly and nice neighborhood and we said more than once, we wished we had stayed there our first time in Brooklyn only 4 weeks earlier. There was a great bagel shop and several restaurants in the area so meals was not a problem.
What a beautiful apartment! As soon as I entered the place I felt relaxed and at home. It really is a beautiful, 'huge', sunny room. Only thing missing (from the photos) was the wardrobe, but that didn't matter too much. I had quiet, restful sleeps. The neighbourhood is great. And although I never was able to meet Kenneth or his family, they made it very easy for me to check in and out of their wonderful home, and made my stay feel like a vacation. Thank you! I would definitely stay agin.
Vi var mycket nöjda med boendet. Willamsburg är en otroligt charmig plats och Kenneths lägenhet ligger väldigt bra till. Enkelt att hitta, rent och väldigt fräsht rum. Kenneth var mycket trevlig och guidade oss mellan de olika restaurangerna och platserna. Det enda negativa var att vi aldrig lyckades få igång Wifi:t. Däremot vet jag inte om det var modemet, våra datorer/telefoner eller vart problemet låg då det fungerade för Kenneth. Därav tänker jag inte lägga någon större vikt på denna punkt. Annars var allt super bra och vi skulle garanterat komma tillbaka.
The place was in a perfect location and the pictures were a great representation of the room.
I was always given complete privacy and both Kenneth and Jasmine were helpful and extremely friendly and their daughters are adorable.
I recommend the room to anyone that wants a true relaxed experience of Brooklyn.
Thanks guys! !
