About This Listing
Our charming, beautiful artist loft with lots of light is located in the heart of the lively and hip Williamsburg neighborhood just 2 blocks from Bedford Ave L-train. The loft is semi open and comfortably fits 3-5 people.
The LOFT is a fully furnished and luminous loft space in the heart of Williamsburg,
2nd floor walk up and not noisy!
Our entire loft is for rent and has a great NY flair.
One thing to keep in mind: it's a loft, the only "real" door is the one to the main bathroom. There is a 2nd bathroom with only a toilet in it.
Another thing: if you have a cat-alergy you maybe rethink, our cat will be "on vacation" as well, but in case you even have a problem if there usually lives a cat, you shouldn't book this.
High speed internet, shower, laundry in the building and parking is easy to find in the super-close area.
The loft has a mega-comfortable King Size Bed, another very comfortable Queensize memory foam matraze plus a single Bed, you can visit with your entire family.
Hardwood floors, full, open kitchen with a huge dining table where 6-8 people can dine very comfortably...
Airconditioner, dishwasher, microwave, washer and dryer inside the building (you need quarters), 24/7 wireless internet
Interaction with Guests
Our loft is all yours! We are happy to share our insider knowledge about the neighborhood with you and I will be available for any questions in anyway possible during your stay.
Williamsburg is currently the hottest neighborhood in NYC. Enjoy a more relaxed pace of NYC and stroll along the famous Bedford Ave and find everything you wish for- shopping, cafes, dining, galleries and nightlife, music, you find everything within a couple of blocks distance including several 24/7 groceries and at the same time this place is located in a more quiet and safe area. If you like parks, McCarran park is a 10 minutes walk away and it's a short 10 minutes walk to the waterfront where you can watch the sunset at the East River Park with view on Manhatten and the Williamsburg Bridge. We are having a great farmers market next to McCarren park every saturday, if you like to cook.
The Brooklyn Flea on Sundays in Williamsburg is basically the place to be for everyone in the neighborhood, not to mention the hundreds of people who flock from all over New York City to browse and socialize. There are several yoga studios near by, if that is what you like. Our favorite Wine and liqueur store is just a short walk away and they also deliver.
It's a very short commute to Manhatten by train, taxi or bicycle (You find bicycle rentals close by). To get to Union Square takes only 15 minutes (by bicycle 30 min.). The closest train stations are Bedford Avenue and Manhattan Avenue. We are located right in the middle of both, just a short 5 minutes walk.

Maike a été parfaite à nous recevoir dans son superbe loft. La photo du loft dit tout. Sur place pas de surprises. Pour ceux qui regretteraient de ne pas être sur Manhattan, sachez qu'on est bien content de pouvoir, le soir venu, se replier dans ce quartier très convivial. Maike toujours prévenante, simple et serviable.
We stayed at Maike's for a fall weekend while visiting our daughter in Williamsburg. The loft is a fabulous space, beautifully decorated and furnished and full of original art, while also being perfectly comfortable and convenient. It really felt like being made welcome to share a friend's home.
Maike was prompt, responsive, and kind, setting us up well and replying promptly to my emails and questions. She happened to be traveling when we were due to arrive, and she went to extraordinary lengths to make sure everything went smoothly, and had a friend welcome us, show us the apartment, and tend to the handoff of keys. Maike was also quite flexible about our arrival and departure times.
Except to make morning coffee, we didn't use the kitchen, but it was fully equipped with everything we might otherwise have wanted. Great shower, comfortable bed... The location is great - quiet for sleeping and an easy walk to wonderful restaurants and shops and the train to Manhattan. It was a treat to stay at Maike's home.
Maike was very nice, met us on arrival and explained everything about the apartment. Williamsburg is a great neighbourhood and the apartment is in a great location to wander about, about 4 stops on the subway to Manhattan. It was fantastic. The apartment is very nice, beds are comfy. There were 3 of us and it was good, but perhaps not great for groups because it is open plan and there is not that much privacy in regards to sleeping, ideal for a couple with or without kids. There is not lift, but apartment is just one -if steep- flight of stairs. Kitchen well equipped for cooking. Clean and air conditioner was good although a bit noisy, so it got a bit hot during the night but I would definitely stay there again without a doubt!
We had a great experience at Maike's loft. The loft is beautiful, very clean, and comfortable. It was easy to get to, and the neighborhood is great. Maike was a wonderful host--she showed us around the loft and was flexible with checking in/out times. She recommended a great place to eat and even gave me a bottle of wine when I told her it was my birthday. Thanks again for everything Maike!
Maike is a generous, thoughtful, and accommodating host -- she was flexible with our arrival time and showed us everything we needed to know for our stay. The loft is beautiful! It's spacious and charming, and in the heart of Williamsburg. We had a wonderful experience and highly recommend staying here if you're planning a trip to Brooklyn.
We loved the space, location, and friendly host, Maike. We didn't want to leave! Prime spot on a quiet street. Good energy in the space too, if you're into that. All around, we fell in love with the whole experience.
I had such a great stay in this loft. I've been to NYC so many times and always stayed in hotels. This was my first time using Airbnb in the NYC area and I found a gem of a place. Even though its a really large space, it quickly starts to feel like home. I love the artwork all around and the overall design. Maike was an amazing host. She was able to change my check in time a bit earlier because no one was staying there the day before. Very friendly and showed me around the place in person. She also made some great restaurant recommendations nearby (check out Atlas coffee shop if you need somewhere to do some work). The neighbourhood has a lot to offer. There was a great barber shop around the corner which was convenient as well. Getting into manhattan is quick. The subway is 2 blocks away and takes 10 mins to get to Union square where you can take a train or walk to other places in manhattan. I'd highly recommend staying here, I know I'll be back next time.
About the Host, Maike
This is our very charming Williamsburg home. I am sharing this great loft with my boyfriend who is a Chilean artist and half of the time with his beautiful daughter Valentina.
All of us are creative and we love fine arts and meeting new, interesting people inspires us. One of the greatest things about New York is the people from all over the world. I am a photographer and one of my favorite things to photograph is food and the restaurant industry.
