This HUGE 2 story house is a true Brooklyn experience that will knock your socks off!
We are located in vibrant Bushwick right down the block from the JMZ trains giving you easy access to Manhattan, Williamsburg and JFK airport. Come on out :)
Come relax on the front porch or in our MASSIVE backyard. At your disposal is a comfortable lounge and dining area, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen that is visited by a professional cleaner a 3-4 times a week.
Your spacious 15'x15' (3m by 3m) room has a double bed, and a futon sofa bed so 3 can fit comfortably. You also have your own heater so you can regulate your own temperature.
We pay for extra for the really fast internet so stream video at ease. We also provide professionally laundered fresh sheets and towels, a hair dryer in your room, and shampoo and soap in the showers.
There is also a washer and dryer in the house so you can do your wash for free while you are here.
Interaction with Guests
There are multiple rooms rented on AirBnB in this house so you will be sharing it with me(Orion) and other guests. This is so much fun! We often end up with an eclectic group from all over the world coming together for coffee in the morning and drinks around the neighborhood.
Bushwick is the current landing pad for NYC's great artistic (email hidden)l kinds of creative types have been filing into Bushwick and a considerable amount of trendiness is trickling in from its ultra-hip neighbor to the west, Williamsburg. New dive bars, bodegas, and gallery spaces continue to flourish, fueled by the intrepid movers and shakers that are pouring into Bushwick’s converted loft spaces.
We are less than 1 block from Myrtle Ave and JMZ train stops putting you into Manhattan in 15 minutes or Williamsburg in 10 minutes.
It is also a very easy commute to JFK airport on public transit and a quick 20 minute cab ride to Laguardia airport.
Other Things to Note
Roberta's - NY Times called it "one of the more extraordinary restaurants in the United States. 2 minute walk.
Bushwick Country Club - birthplace of the now world famous 'pickleback' shots. 5 minute walk.
No young children or pets please :)
Cook whatever you want! Just clean up when you are finished.
Don't hog the shower during the morning.
Simple. Hands off. Convenient. Though the space was small, it was manageable with 2 people.
The room was exactly as the picture. I had some issue to get in at first but everything was solved with help from Orion. Great location, very near to the subway station, for some people it feels like a dangerous neighborhood but I don't felt that way, great bar just around the corner called Skytown.
Although we didn't get the chance to actually meet Orion and Roo, we had a great time in their home. Everything was well organized, so we had no problems getting into the house. As we were very busy exploring the city we didn't spend much time at the house. Price/value was excellent. If you are a light sleeper you may want to grab a pair of the earplugs provided in the living room. The metro runs by closely and there are other guests in the house. For us it wasn't a problem at all though. We can definitely recommend staying with Orion and Roo.
+ close to metro station
+ not spotless, but clean
+ communication before our stay, with news about upcoming events
+ well equipped kitchen
- the drain in the bathroom could have been cleaned more often
Great spot - would certainly stay here again and will definitely recommend this location to friends!
Orion and Roo's place is nice, clean, and comfy! The place looked just like the photos. The room had a great vibe. I was pleased with everything. Only complaint is that the walls are a little thin and you can hear other fellow travelers in the next room. But all in all great place to stay!
Le airbnb est bien, la maison accueillante. En revanche notre chambre était très sale, nous avons dû changé les draps: cheveux et poussières sur les lits, touffes de poils dans la baignoire. Un peu moyen quand on paie des frais de ménages. Attention également pour ceux qui recherche une chambre calme: le métro passe à côté et la plupart des gens qui y passent sont en vacances et n'hésitent pas à faire la fête toute la nuit dans leur chambre.
Sinon pour le prix globalement acceptable.
The appartement was located close to the train station (approx. two minutes) and the connection to Manhatten was very good! The appartement was nice, although the neighbourhood was a little frightening at night. Our room was quiet small, but it's alright for just sleeping. Overall, our room and the bathroom could have been cleaner.

I am a happy, talkative guy who loves food, drink, sports, and music. I am really good at the 'name this song' portion of the local trivia night. I enjoy chuckling, other people's pets, and giving restaurant recommendations :)
One day I hope to open my own restaurant or hotel.
