OUR COMFY AND SUPER CLEAN LOFT
Very comfortable 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.

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.
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!
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 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 :)
We are literally as close as you can be to Manhattan without actually being there!
5 minute walk to the L stop at Bedford or Lorimer L stop, and only 10 minutes to Union Square. Look up the location by searching the corner of Union and N11th, zip 11211.
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.
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!
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!
