About This Listing
Loft living in the heart of hip Williamsburg. Relax in a private room of a spacious 2-BR loft, shared with a long-time veteran of the neighborhood who is happy to offer directions and suggestions. Close to subway, 5 minutes to Manhattan, great area.
Settle into your own private room and work space in a spacious and stylish loft on one of the best blocks in the Burg. Ideal location - just a 3-minute walk from the Bedford stop on the L train, which will get you to Union Square in Manhattan in 5 minutes. You can also catch the East River Ferry from the nearby North 6th Pier.
On North 9th St., you are in the center of it all but still on a quiet, tree-lined block. The high street of Bedford Avenue is two short blocks away, and one block in the other direction is gorgeous East River State Park. You’ll be perfectly positioned to take in the neighborhood’s countless cool bars, restaurants, boutiques and events.
As for the space, the loft is on the 3rd floor of a former factory building. In all it is approximately 1,100 square feet (102M sq.), with 12-foot (3.6M) ceilings throughout, a huge common living room space with Manhattan and Brooklyn views, and a massive roof deck with sweeping views of the East River and Manhattan skyline.
The bedroom is about 11’x12’ (12M+) with a 12’ ceiling, a sliding barn-door, queen size bed, and a wall of shelving, closet space and hooks for all your belongings. It is freshly painted and freshly furnished with everything you’ll need including European plug adaptors and a hairdryer. It is one of two bedrooms in the space (not a multi-roommate flophouse situation.)
In addition to the room, you will also have use of a large steel desk and file cabinet in the shared office area, a good place from which to work or catch up on emails.
There are two washers and two dryers at the end of the hall which are FREE, so you won’t have to haul your clothes to a laundromat.
There is a large freight elevator right outside the apartment, so no matter how much luggage you have getting it into the apartment will be a breeze.
The open kitchen is fully functional and I have all of the basics if you should feel like cooking for yourself. I also keep coffee, espresso, tea and breakfast supplies on hand that you can help yourself to - granola bars, fruit, cereal, oatmeal, etc.
As a host I am easy-going, fun to be around, and out a lot of the time. I work during the day and go out most evenings. I can be as engaged or distant as you need me to be. I can take you out for drinks or send you off on your own.
Any other questions? Ask me!!
In short, here’s what you’ll get:
•Your own well-appointed room with fresh linens and towels
•Your own desk in common office area
•Huge roof deck with panoramic skyline & river views (open in warmer months only)
•FREE laundry down the hall
•Freight elevator for your luggage
•Basic Cable TV
•AppleTV with Streaming Netflix
•Tons of closet space and storage
•Huge, comfortable and well-furnished living room space with a dining table
•Coffee (French press and espresso) & Tea

Make yourself comfortable! Lounge in the spacious living room to read or watch TV. Help yourself to complimentary coffee and tea in the mornings, or cook yourself a gourmet dinner in in the fully equipped kitchen.
Interaction with Guests
I'm happy to give you as much or little input as you want or need. I know the neighborhood and city very well and am happy to point you in the right direction.
The Bedford Avenue stop of the L train is just a 4 minute walk away. From there you are 5 minutes from Union Square in the middle of Manhattan.
Enjoy yourself and the city!
Don't sweat the small stuff. I will clean up after you go. That said, basic hygiene and tidiness are much appreciated.
I will have a cleaning person come every 1-2 weeks and between each stay, but they don't do laundry. You are free to wash your own clothes, sheets & towels down the hall as frequently as you like. (Sheets/towels will be clean upon your arrival, obviously :)
Smoking is allowed in moderation next to or out the open window in the living room, but not in any other area of the apartment, including your bedroom.
I try to be as eco-friendly as is reasonably possible. Please turn off lights, fans, unused appliances, etc. when you go out. Please also utilize the recycling bins for disposables.
Please remember that someone else lives here too and it is not a hotel. Mutual respect, yo.
If something is not what you expected or unsatisfactory, please tell me immediately. Don't stew about it and then write me a bad review after the fact. I aim to please, so speak up!. Be cool, be open minded and have a great time!
Anne was great at communication and was there to greet us upon arrival. Everything was just as advertised. Very comfy bed and a great apartment in a perfect location. Couldn't have asked for anything more! I would definitely stay here again.
Our stay at Anne's place was really great. The loft is amazing with a lot of space, light, equipments and a wonderfull view over Manhattan. The neighbourhood is great, tons of bars and restaurants and only one stop away from Manhattan by subway. Anne was also very welcoming and helpfull! I definetelly recommend and i would go again in a heartbeat. Thanks again Anne !
Anne was a wonderful host! Excellent communication! Her home is very clean and welcoming. Great location!
The only drawback we experienced was the noise. The building is older so every step from the hall or above sounds like it's right in the room, so if you are a light sleeper bring earplugs.
Lovely apartment and great location. Thanks Anne!
Anne nous attendait au bas de l'immeuble et nous a tout bien expliqué!Le loft est spacieux propre et dans un quartier vraiment chouette a la fois reposant et vivant à deux pas d'une magnifique vue sur manhattan nous sommes tout à côté du métro et en une station nous sommes à manhattan. Anne a été tres patiente avec nos enfants car notre bebe ne fait pas encore ses nuits...
Anne is a lovely host, very helpful and friendly. The apartment was clean and cozy and very well situated. In a few minutes by subway you are in Manhattan. I really enjoyed the stay at Anne's apartment.
