The Space

I've had multiple people upset they lost the booking b/c they were waiting to hear back if it was available (it is!)

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.

Use (website hidden) maps to see our location on 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!

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.

It's three flights up and there is no elevator, but it's worth 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 :)

We live downstairs so we will show you around when you arrive. We are here to help with any questions and suggestions that will make your trip great!

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!

The Neighborhood

Coolest neighborhood in the world according to the NYTimes!

Getting around

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!

  • Thank you Pia for having us in your very nice studio. I specially appreciated the soft comfy bed and the wonderful luxurious sheets! I slept like a baby. The area is calm and close to everything within walking distance. I love Williamsburg and all the fantastic cafes and restaurants and long back. Thanks for a great stay!

  • Our stay at Pia's Williamsburg Loft was all that we hoped and expected it would be! We were very pleased with the apartment itself- it is comfy, cozy, clean and sunshiny, just like pictures present. The check in and out process was super easy with no difficult time constraints. The Williamsburg neighborhood is a pleasure with lots to do, and the short little walk to the L train into Manhattan was a breeze. We can highly recommend this AirBnB host and home!!!

  • We stayed for one entire week in Pia's appartment and enjoyed it a lot! The appartment is very nice and located in a pretty cool area near to Bedford Av. Pia is a very friendly host and very responsive. She replies quickly on Mails, SMS or AirBnB messages. We definitively recommend this AirBnB experience.

  • Pia is the greatest host! Super nice when we meet her. Her place is very clean and charming with lots of room. Everything needed was provided and Pia is very easy to communicate with and very accommodating to any situation. Making sure your stay is the best possible. She even went over and above and helped with luggage storage even though we've checked out of her place a day before. Thanks Pia! Definitely my best Airbnb experience thus far!

  • Great apartment in a fantastic location! 50 steps from Jimmy's for breakfast and less than 10 mins walk to L line subway at Bedford Avenue - great restaurants, shops and bars nearby! Very comfortable, clean and bright. Highly recommended.

  • Pia's place is lovely and my daughter and I enjoyed our stay in Brooklyn very much. The apartment is charming and the neighbourhood is great. The apartment is situated close to Bedford Avenue which is lively yet has a very relaxed atmosphere that constitutes a nice contrast to the fascinating, busy and crowded Manhattan right next door.

    We warmly recommend the place and would like to come back for another stay another time.

  • Had such a great stay at Pia's, apt was clean and just like the photos! Comfy bed and great light (but there's shades to block out the sun in the morning) especially a GREAT location. You are so close to bedford ave and all the great shops. Thanks again pia i hope to return!

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!
