OUR COMFY AND SUPER CLEAN APT
Very cozy queen sized bed and tons of light streaming in. 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!**

Here's your chance to stay in super cool Williamsburg and still be minutes from Manhattan. Once you're there, it's only about 10 minutes more to Soho, LES, West Village, and all the sights in Midtown.
THE BEST NEIGHBORHOOD TO VISIT
As a Native Manhattanite I can tell you Williamsburg has the coolest bars and restaurants in this city. Whether you're a foodie, want to sit in a garden restaurant, like a great cocktail or just want to kick back with a beer, we are surrounded by the best restaurants in the neighborhood (including Beco on our street, The Wythe Hotel, Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn Bowl, and The Knitting Factory to name a few). Mixed in are tons of old school spots like Bamonte’s 2 blocks away, an old school Italian spot where the bartender has been working there for 45 years and the gnocci is definitely worth a visit!
We have made a guestbook for the apartment with all our top suggested spots for food, drink, coffee and sights and many of our guests have told us it really made their trip :)
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.
WE'RE HERE IF YOU NEED ANYTHING

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 to give you privacy, although we are usually around if you need us and are always accessible by email or phone.
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!
Other Things to Note
Please let us know how we can make your stay better once you arrive! Happy to make restaurant and activity recommendations as well :)
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!
Super lovely flat in a great location.
The apartment is in the center of so many things; right around the corner from McCarren park, surrounded by fantastic restaurants, and yet still private and quiet.
Also, check-in was one of the easiest we've ever experienced.
We stayed in Williamsburg for a week and had a truly amazing stay. The apt. was perfect, clean and with plenty of space for two adults and a baby. Pia gave us good instructions for how to get there incl. getting the keys and there even is a guidebook in the apt. We would absolutely recommend it. A minor problem was one very hot evening where the power went of, accidently shot down centrally by the neighbour. We tried to contact Pia by phone but didn't hear back before next day. We managed to fix the problem ourselves by finding the central switch in the basement, but would have preferred faster feedback.
The apartment was just as described, beautifully laid out and very comfortable.
The neighbourhood has lots of nice places to eat and the apartment is really close to the subway.
Pis was very welcoming and helpful.
Situated in the heart of hipsterville, one of the great things about this apartment is it's location. It's about a 5 minute walk from Bedford Square subway station, close to Brooklyn Flea, Brooklyn Bowl, the Brooklyn Beer brewery and to the bars, restaurants and independent shops on Bedford Avenue.
Although we didn't meet Pia in person, her communication by email to let us know directions, key information etc was very friendly. Once we arrived all the information we needed was left in the apartment so Pia could leave us to enjoy our stay.
The apartment was perfectly sized for the two of us, and the open plan studio style space suited us well and gives the apartment a light, spacious feel. It is nicely furnished and was spotlessly clean. Although it is fairly close to lots of nightlife, it is actually on a fairly quiet street so we had no problems with noise.
Près de tout à pied dans le quartier Williamsburg. Photos représentatives de la réalité. Eau courante de la douche très faible par contre.
Fantastiskt fin lägenhet i underbara Williamsburg. Jättebra läge och ändå i ett lugnt och tyst område då lägenheten ligger på en mindre gata. Pia var väldigt hjälpsam och välkomnande, inga problem att få lämna bagage före incheckning och bra tips på var man skulle gå för mat och shopping. Vi stannade i fyra nätter och det var den bästa delen av vår semester. Utan tvekan skulle vi boka detta boende igen.
Pia was very accommodating and the loft was beautiful! Will definitely recommend this place to friends looking for a place in Williamsburg :)

About the Host, Pia
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!
