Clean and private bedroom in the heart of Williamsburg Brooklyn right off of Bedford Ave. It sleeps up to 2 people comfortably and has easy access to major subway lines.
I'm subletting a room in my 2 b/r apartment in the heart of Williamsburg Brooklyn. Perfect for someone visiting NYC that can't afford to stay in a hotel or wants more of a "real" New York experience.
I own a kitten named king tubby aka tubs. he's very friendly and adorable. i hope you're not allergic to him.
The apartment has hardwood floors throughout, a fully equipped kitchen, common area, 1 bathroom and the rooftop is accessible.
The room sleeps 2 comfortably, has a large window with a private fire escape, freshly painted walls, french doors, a full size bed, night stand, large closet and extra overhead storage.
The neighborhood is very safe, super convenient and VERY popular! There are tons of stores, boutiques, restaurants, bars and music venues all within walking distance.
There are 2 train stations both less than 10 minutes away, the Bedford Ave. L line and the Marcy Ave. J/M/Z lines. There is also a bus stop around the corner and the Williamsburg bridge is just 3 blocks away. It takes less than 1/2 hr to walk to Manhattan.
I've been living in NYC for almost 5 years and in this apartment for about 2 1/2. I'm very familiar with the city/neighborhood and am more than happy to give you any help, recommendations, directions etc..
I look forward to hosting you :)
You will have access to a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, the common area, fire escape and rooftop.
Williamsburg is by far the most popular neighborhood in brooklyn with loads of awesome bars, music venues, shops, cafe's and restaurants. The waterfront (east river park) is my personal favorite.
There are 2 subway stations both in equal walking distance as well as 2 bus stops just one block away.
Francis was a great host; very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The location of the apartment is killer. King Tubby is an awesome cat. If you are a disco lover, you will thoroughly enjoy staying at Francis' apartment. Cheers!
It was my second time in the francis´s house. Francis is the best host and a good friend to me now. He always gives help if you need to know something and he is really nice. The house has a good location and williamsburg is beautiful!
Francis was a very great host, very friendly. The location in Williamsburg is quiet and just near one of the main avenue with café, restaurants, bars and shops.
If you're looking for a relaxed place that'll give you a taste of life in Brooklyn, this is perfect. Francis' apartment is definitely cozy and vibrant, at an affordable price. Plus, he's a friendly host who's happy to share where to hang on a Friday or Saturday night :)
Perfect location in a fantastic neighbourhood close to food, coffee and a citibike station right over the road. Francis was a great host and Tubbs a hilarious sidekick. Hoping to get another chance to swing through Williamsburg soon.
Staying at Francis' place was a great experience, the apartment was clean, well located and his cat is the most adorable little thing.
Thank you again for having me & it was nice meeting you.
The location of the apartment is perfect, there are restaurants and bars almost everywhere. It's a short walking distance to the subway as well or you just walk over Williamsburgbridge to get to Manhatten.
The room itself is nice and enough to stay for a few days ... The host was friendly and very quite so I almost didn't know the he was there.
The only thing to complain was my arrival. The first time I got to the apartment Francis was still sleeping and didn't open the door, even so I told him that I will arrive at this time and he confirmed that 2 days before. Luckily a woman came out of the building and opened the entrance door for me. I was knocking at the apartment door for almost 10 minutes until the couple who stayed at the apartment the nights before finally opened the door to the apartment so that I could at least leave my heavy luggage in the apartment. They didn't know that I was coming and If they had already left I would have had to carry my luggage all the day through New York ...
Francis is an awesome host, easy going, helpful, friendly. I felt totally at home with Francis's company! The apartment is compact, but the room clean & cosy, so if your looking to spread out than its not ideal, however it suited me for this short trip to NY ! The location is spot on, in the funky neighbourhood of Williamsburg a short walk to all the cafes, restaurants and bars.
Your new friend in Williamsburg is Francis.
We caught him on his birthday and crashed his party.........good times.
Francis is awesome, his friends are awesome, his cat is awesome and his flat is awesome too.
The room is a decent size and the bed is comfy but the rest of the flat is pretty compact so don't book in if lots and lots of space is your number one priority.
If you want to feel like a local for a few nights then Francis is your man.
