Located in the heart of Williamsburg right above the L train, this unique penthouse has a skylit open architecture and large garden making it brighter, more spacious, and more welcoming than the typical New York 2BR. No doubt you'll love it.
ABOUT THE APARTMENT:
The apartment is atop a 4-story walk-up. The unique A-frame architecture has skylights throughout the kitchen, living room, and bedrooms, making it much brighter and more welcoming than the typical New York den. There is a private back porch, large enough to accommodate an outdoor dinner party, with a large grill/smoker, sectional sofa, potted garden, and an unobstructed view of the nearby Manhattan skyline.
While the bedrooms and bathroom are of course private, the common areas all fall within an open architecture, making all of the apartment's most attractive features available from everywhere. Cook dinner in the kitchen while watching a movie on the large projector in the living room. Listen to music from the office stereo while emailing your friends from the porch hammock to tell them about your mind-blowing New York accommodations.
ABOUT THE BEDROOM(S):
The apartment has 2 bedrooms, one for me and one for you (though I sometimes rent my own room when I travel - I'll let you know prior to booking if this is going to be the case for your stay). Both rooms have 4 large skylights, a full size bed for 1-2 guests (fitted with freshly cleaned sheets and towels), night stands, and a full-sized dresser. You'll find a power strip with an iPod/iPhone charger and EU/UK adapters for all your indispensable travel electronics.
ABOUT THE KITCHEN:
I'm one of those people who thinks that investing in nice things for my kitchen will make me a better cook, and my ignorance is your gain. Help yourself to various luxury brand appliances and cookwares, daily fresh ground espresso, and an arsenal of organic ingredients for making your favorite dish from home, wherever it might be.
You'll have access to the entire apartment with the exception of my bedroom. Feel free to use my cookware, toiletries, whatever you need to feel at home. See amenities for more details.
Interaction with guests
Depends totally on your preference. My guest interactions range from not very much at all to so much that I've stayed in touch with and even stayed at the homes of my guests when I've been in their home countries.
I'm only filling this out because AirBnB apparently bumps your listing in the search results if you post at least fifty words here, so here are some obvious ones:
Please don't steal anything.
Please try not to break anything.
Please keep the common areas reasonably clean while you're here and do a once-over before you leave. I'll take care of washing your sheets and towels and cleaning the floor and surfaces of your bedroom.

I take pride in my home and love to travel, even if it's more often vicariously through my guests.
