About This Listing
Big, beautiful, and clean 2 bedroom apartment in the great Brooklyn neighborhood of Greenpoint. Easy access to trains, but so many restaurants and bars in the area, you may never leave Brooklyn! Manhattan skyline view, quiet street.
Large and sparkling clean 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom in Greenpoint, Brooklyn with gorgeous views of the Manhattan skyline. Greenpoint is a very hip neighborhood that has retained it's old charm. There are many great restaurants and bars nearby, as well as McCarren Park. Our apartment is neat and clean and decorated very well (If I do say so myself!) The apartment is located very close to the G train, and a 10-15 minute walk to the L train. It is very easy to get to several Manhattan locations, including Union Square, Times Square, Grand Central, and other transportation hubs. Free Wifi, 32 inch HDTV with Apple TV and Roku, blu-ray, Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, and Nintendo 64. Full kitchen, Full bathroom. One large bedroom with double bed and one smaller bedroom with pull-out sofa-bed that is slightly smaller than a double bed (sleeps 2). A queen size air mattress is available to sleep an additional 2 guests. Street parking is usually easy to find, just pay attention to the parking signs! Books, games, and DVD's around if you want to stay in.
Guests have access to entire apartment. Plenty of entertainment options (TV, movies, books, games) if you feel like staying in and endless things to do if you feel like going out.
Interaction with Guests
We rent our apartment out when we are away, but I am very responsive and always just a phone call, text, or email away if any issues arise.
In my opinion, Greenpoint is the best neighborhood in NYC. Lots of up and coming restaurants and bars, coupled with the quiet and charm that make it such a lovely place to relax.
There are 2 subway lines easily accessible. Also busses, taxis, and my favorite... the East River Ferry!
Other Things to Note
The view of Manhattan can't be beat. There are hotels, restaurants, and bars springing up monthly boasting views that we have right from our living room.
No pets allowed and no smoking. Kids are very welcome, but we do not have any of our own, so be aware that the apartment is not child-proof. We do not have any other rules, but simply ask that you respect our home and leave it as you found it.
This apartment is gorgeous, stylish and well located. Waking up to that view every morning was amazing. Our hosts were so welcoming and checked in every now and then on email to make sure we were enjoying our stay. The apartment itself is warm, there's always hot water for a shower and there is no street noise so you are sure to have a good night's sleep. I would definitely stay here again the next time I'm in New York. Thanks so much for having us.
We enjoyed the stay in Brooklyn for our trip to New York; flat and neighborhood is perfect for a tourist trip! As we are new in airbnb, Devon gave us all explanations on a short term. Thanks.
We have stayed in lots of Airbnb(s) - this was by far, the best. The photos depict exactly what you get, the views are amazing - especially at night! There's tons of light in this CLEAN, immaculate apartment which is simply decorated and appointed which helps keep your things separate from the owner's. The beds were comfortable & A/C wonderful! It's in a lovely, walkable neighborhood with cafes and restaurants close by. Easy access w/a lockbox and quick communication from Devon made this a 5 star Airbnb.
My friends and I had a fantastic time in Devon & Zack's place! Plenty of natural light, great views, clean and tastefully furnished, all in a neighborhood with plenty to do in walking distance. I had a few inquiries before and during my stay; Devon was prompt and courteous in her responses. It felt like there was a lot of effort put in to making us feel at home. Would rent again in a heartbeat!
We had a great stay in this lovely stylish flat on a street with loads of personality and charm. Would recommend highly and come back again. Also lovely treats to eat and drink included. Thanks
I had two consecutive reservations with Devon, so I'll summarize what I just said in the previous comment. They are great hosts, answering really fast to all questions I could previously have, the appartment and the view are perfect... I definitely recommend it, and I'll come back again soon hopefully!
We arrived at the appartment at the end of the day and our hosts were there waiting for us.
First contact with Devon and Zack was amazing! They offered us a warm welcome and presented the appartment as well as explaining everything we needed to know ( Metro station, supermarket, things to visit).
Regarding the appartment:
- The whole appartment is really clean and well organized.
- The two bedrooms are of a reasonably size and the beds are good (a bit less for the one in the smaller room if you are a tall person but still comfortable).
- The view from the appartment in my sense is not shown enough on the website but is really amazing, you can enjoy a panoramic view on all manhattan. It's even more incredible from the rooftop.
- You really have everything nearby, from the supermarket to the laundry service through pharmacies and bars.
Something to notice for those like us who don't really know New-York and might be scared about renting an appartment in Brooklyn the place is really nice and if you have concerns regarding the safety it's also perfectly safe..
That was a real pleasure to correspond with them, Devon answered really quickly to all the questions I had about the apartment before taking the reservation.
We had a great time from the moment we arrived to the moment we left thanks to our great hosts, and I definitely recommend this apartment!
