Bright & airy apt in super cool Williamsburg is a perfect home base for any visitor with so many cool bars, restaurants and stores in the neighborhood, & you're only 10 mins from Manhattan. Comfy & quintessential Brooklyn experience!
I've had multiple people upset they lost the booking b/c they were waiting to hear back if it was available (it is!)
***PLEASE USE INSTANT BOOK IF YOU'RE READY TO BOOK!*******
After a day of enjoying this crazy city you need a calming place to come home to that is still in the middle of everything. Enjoy our modern, minimalist loft-like home with exposed beams and brick located in the very happening north side of Williamsburg in Brooklyn.
Look up the location by searching the corner of Union and N11th, zip 11211.
5 minute walk to the L stop at Bedford or Lorimer L stop, and only 10 minutes to Union Square.
Very comfy queen sized bed and tons of light streaming through. The couch is a futon for 2 additional guests to use. We decided to leave the bedroom open to the living room to maximize the light.
Large eat-in kitchen with window, and more light! Brand new stainless steel stove, kitchen floors were just also just redone.
The art is by me and my husband, BK artists. It's three flights up and there is no elevator, but it's worth it!
Williamsburg has tons of the coolest bars and restaurants in the Brooklyn. Brooklyn Brewery, Roebling Tea Room, and Brooklyn Bowl are just down the street. Here's your chance to stay in super cool Williamsburg and still be minutes from Manhattan.
Like to shop? Tons of boutiques on Bedford just a couple blocks away, and don't miss the famous second hand store Beacon's closet, home of the most fashionable designer brands that have already been curated by the uber-hip stylists that run it.
The places comes with:
- fresh towels
- clean sheets (obviously!)
- hair dryer
- iron and ironing board
- toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner and shower gel
Hopefully that makes packing easier :)

Interaction with Guests
We try to make it easy and convenient for our guests to check in and check out whenever they need to, so the keys are left in the key box on the outside fence. This means we generally don't see our guests, although we are usually around if you need us!
Coolest neighborhood in the world according to the NYTimes!
We are literally as close as you can be to Manhattan without actually being there!
5 minute walk to the Bedford or Lorimer L train stops. From Bedford it is 1 stop to Manhattan and another 2 stops to Union Square.
You can connect with EVERY train from the L train!

All we ask is that you treat the place like you would your own home, and please wash your dishes!
Also, please just be respectful of our neighbors, they are all very nice and we like to be nice to them back. It's a small building with lots of families, so if you come home late at night PLEASE KEEP YOUR VOICES DOWN as you walk through the hallways. Thank you!
Pia's place was perfect for our stay in Brooklyn. It was bright, clean, and cozy, and only a few blocks from the subway into Manhattan. Checkin and checkout couldn't have been easier. We would definitely stay here again.
The apartment is very clean with a lot of space and well located. it was very pleasant to be there for a few days. Nevertheless, it is more to consider it as a nice room from an hotel rather than a living place. Pia was very nice and quick to answer to our numerous requests and demands.
The apartment was better than pictured, if that's even possible. My best friend and I were using AirBnb while in between apartments and our experience with Pia was by far our favorite. When I slept through my alarm on check out day, she was understanding and accommodating. This is a fourth floor walk up with a narrow staircase so be prepared to sweat if you have heavy luggage (we did) BUT IT IS TOTALLY WORTH IT. The futon is huge and there are tons of extra blankets and pillows. The building is very quiet. I didn't see or hear anyone besides us.
Pia was extremely accommodating, friendly & helpful. The apartment was super spacious, comfortable & beautifully styled. We visited during a snow blizzard & very cold conditions however, we were kept ultra cosy with the superb heating & extra oil heaters on offer.
Had a fantastic time in Williamsburg, what a great neighborhood. The apartment was very comfortable and clean in a super quiet building. Everything was as stated and we were very happy with our stay. Very easy arrival and check-in to the apartment, if you stay here you'll understand.
A small bit on the car service she recommended, top notch. Called them and in less than 5 minutes the car was there and took us to Manhattan for a very reasonable price. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if I needed to spend time in or around the city. Thanks Pia.
My girlfriend and I stayed for three nights in early January and had a fantastic time. Pia's apartment is very spacious and feels like a proper New York loft.
The apartment is incredibly well situated to enjoy all Williamsburg has to offer, but is also very close to some great transport links. The building is super easy to find and access, which made the whole experience really straightforward.
I would thoroughly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a great base to explore the Brooklyn. I will definitely be getting in touch with Pia next time I visit NYC.

My husband Steve and I run a branding and design company called Worstofall Design. I'm a native New Yorker, went to Hunter Elem and High school and then Wesleyan University. I've been a dancer my whole life, and my husband is a painter, so our self-employed lifestyle is suiting us well! I love living in Brooklyn and Williamsburg is an amazing place to be these days. It's a great mix of super cool restaurants and bars and cheap produce and fish down on Grand Street, or great kilbasa and polish food up on Greenpoint Ave. I love living next to the park and there is a beautiful Farmers Market around the corner from us every Saturday. Definitely a fun place to live, or visit!
We love hosting and meeting people from all over the world, and are happy to tell you our favorite spots that we recommend. Feel free to drop a line if you have any questions!
