Enjoy your stay in NYC on the border of Greenpoint and Williamsburg, New York’s trendiest neighborhood! Steps from the subway, McCarren Park, and some of the hottest restaurants, shops, galleries, cafes, music venues and bars in NYC, this cozy apartment has access to a shared garden filled with rose bushes. Furnished with a queen-sized bed in the master bedroom and two twin beds in the smaller bedroom.
You'll be renting the upper half of my duplex apartment. I'll be staying in the lower half. You'll have the top half (2 bedrooms and your own bathroom) pretty much all to yourselves—I am out a lot and completely respect my guests' privacy. Sometimes I don't even see folks after check in(!), though we might end up chatting over beers in the backyard too. I'm also on hand to answer any questions you may have and help with anything you may need. It's the closest thing you can (legally) get to renting a private 2BR apartment in NYC!
--Wi-Fi & Satellite TV w/ HBO and a flat-screen TV.
--A full kitchen with new stainless-steel appliances (fridge, oven, microwave, dishwasher) and all needed cooking supplies is provided for your convenience.
--Clean linens and towels are included.
--Midtown Manhattan (Rockefeller Center/Times Square) is approximately 20-30 minutes away via the G train (located around the corner), and the L train, one stop (a 5-minute ride) to Manhattan, is a short walk down Bedford Avenue, the hottest shopping street in Brooklyn.
I absolutely ADORE the neighborhood--it's a very quiet street, but the excitement begins around the corner, with some of the trendiest bars & restaurants in NYC (Heath Ledger's restaurant opened up 1.5 blocks away) and a huge gorgeous park around the corner.
—No smoking inside the apartment (you are welcome to smoke in the yard as long as all cigarette butts are disposed of properly).
—No pets (many guests are allergic--it prevents us from renting to other guests in the future)
--Please respect the neighbors and other building residents, and keep noise to a minimum after 10pm. This is a NYC apartment; like all other apartments in the city there are neighbors above, below, and on both sides. Sound travels. Please be considerate. No parties in the apartment or yard, please.
—If you are traveling with children: While children are welcome (and encouraged!) to play in the garden, please prevent any running/stomping/jumping in the apartment—there are people living downstairs! Thank you.
—Please leave all apartment windows and doors locked upon your departure.
—Please leave air conditioning units off when you are not in the apartment.
—Please do not chop or cut directly on the countertops--please use the cutting boards provided!
—Please do not rearrange all the furniture in the apartment! (I know this seems like a weird rule, but we had a guest who did just that)
—Please separate your recyclables into the containers provided, and dispose of trash appropriately (instructions are on the fridge). NYC fines us a lot of money if our recyclables aren't properly disposed of! Thanks for your help.
--If you have a problem with something in the apartment not working, please let me know as soon as you can! A few guests haven't been able to figure something out and waited to tell me upon checkout, which was too late for me to fix the problem. I want you to be happy! If you message me about an issue, I'll do everything I can to fix it as quickly as possible.
--PLEASE DO NOT BOTHER THE OTHER TENANTS IN THE BUILDING--they won't be able to help you, and are weary of being contacted by guests. Please ask/call/message me (or the Airbnb help line) and we'll sort things out.
Wij hebben met vier meiden in het appartement van Anna & Steve gelogeerd. Het appartement is prima gelegen in een leuke straat/buurt, vlàk bij een metrostation. Super handig!
Het appartement is wat verouderd, maar redelijk netjes en heel compleet. Het tweepersoonsbed is prima, de twee eenpersoonsbedden niet echt lekker. Heerlijke douche. Het is wel gehorig; de buren hielden zich gelukkig rustig...
Wat heel fijn is, is dat er supersnel op je mail wordt gereageerd. We waren ook heel blij dat we op de dag van vertrek wat langer in het appartement mochten blijven. Anders hadden we op straat gestaan in de sneeuw! !
This apt rocks! Awesome location, exactly as pictured, and Anna and Steve are super easy to work with. This was my second time staying here and enjoy being close to the action and it's the perfect spot for exploring Brooklyn! Highly recommend.
Anna and Steve are easy to work with. They respond quickly to any questions or issues. The apartment is as shown in photos. The kitchen has everything you could need if you want to prepare meals. There are 2 TVs with cable. The main bedroom is good size with queen bed and the second bedroom is quite small with 2 twin beds. As noted in other reviews the twin beds are quite hard. Bathroom is very small but typical for NY apartments. The very best thing for us about the apartment is the location. It is close to my son & family, close to restaurants, grocery store, laundry, park and G train. Just about perfect for us.
The perfect vacation! Cosy apartment and excellent location. Will definitely be back!
Nice and easy rental, amazing location, clean and cozy apartment. Perfect for 4 people.
This was my first airbnb experience and it was excellent. If you want to live like an New Yorker for a bit this is the place for you. The apartment was "real"-so if you need new and shiny you may be disappointed. We found it clean, the bedding and towels were of good quality and best of all the location is awesome. Some of the best spots in Greenpoint and Williamsburg are just a brisk walk away-allowing you to burn off those extra calories you'll be enjoying. If your into cooking, the markets close at hand have beautiful produce and seafood. Anna and Steve were also kind enough to grant our request for early drop off of luggage. The only negative I can think of is that if you are a light sleeper, the sound of footsteps overhead may be a bit of a problem.
We stayed one week at Anna and Steve's apartment. We had no problem with anything. The keys were easily retrieved and the apartment arrangement worked well for my husband and I and our son. The 2 bedrooms are separated by the living room/kitchen which gives everyone more privacy. One of my main concerns when traveling is having a good bed. The queen bed in the master bedroom was excellent with nice linens. The smaller beds in the 2nd bedroom were not as comfortable, but OK. The kitchen was fully stocked with appliances. The shower in the bathroom was very good. The apartment is street level which is nice for carrying in luggage and it was very quiet. The neighborhood was fun with lots of services and restaurants; the apartment is very close to a subway stop. We did not use the outdoor area, but it was available.
We're newlyweds living in NYC. We love living on the edge of Williamsburg and Greenpoint! Trendy, fun, but far enough away from the action to still have a neighborhood feel.
