About this listing
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.
My friend and I stayed in " Sweet Room B" for 14 nights in July. The house is conveniently located close to the Metro 'Myrtle Ave' (J/M lines) and was a great launching pad to explore Williamsburg (be sure to go to bar La Lupe around the corner)/Brooklyn (Station cafe for bottomless brunch on the weekend) and Manhattan (anything and everything on the island is great!). Whilst we didn't actually meet Orion or Roo, we did connect on email and text with very prompt responses from them. If you're planning on a Summer stay, be aware that the room gets very hot, however the air-conditioner unit and fans more than make up for it. The room was clean and exactly like the pictures. Don't hesitate to book this private room for your stay in New York.
Thanks again Orion for opening your house up, we had a great time!
What a great place and nice people there :) The house was real close to both subway station (Myrtle Avenue) and food market. Room was nice and clean so as the bathroom and kitchen! Also getting in and out of the house was comfortable since it's a number-pad. Me and my boyfriend had wonderful time staying there for 10days! Orion and Roo will absolutely care what you have in your room if you need any help! Thank you so much for the great experience, NYC! Definitely coming back one day!
The apartment (with a really nice garden!) is well located and easy to find, the neighbourhood is nice and vivid. Our room was small, but clean. Unfortunately there is just one window at the ceiling which can't be opened and the air condition wasn't working, so it was way too hot to sleep. Orion tried to fix it but our second (and last) night were sleepless as well. Due to the circumstances our stay was not really enjoyable, but Orion refund us one night and we sure would give it another try next time.
I had limited interaction with the host. His employee Nadia made me feel very welcome. Listing accurate. Nice neighborhood with easy access to the subway and 24 hour grocery store.
My stay was only for one night and the accommodations were exactly as described on the listing. The bed was comfortable.
Great stay!! 1 minute walking from the metro station ;) when you make your booking Orion sent you a lot of info. We recomend it!! ;)
Very happy with our 8 days at this nice place. House is clean and very relaxed. Homely feeling about it. Location is perfect. Close to the tub which is a big plus. Only bad thing was that the Wifi was down for like a day but other than that it was a perfect stay and I do recommend it to anyone.

About the Host, Orion And Roo
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.
