The Space

One bedroom available in a newly renovated two bedroom apartment, located in the center of Williamsburg! The apartment is close to the Marcy stop on the JMZ (Soho, LES, West Village) and to either Bedford or Lorimer on the L (Union Square, East Village, Chelsea plus transfers uptown to Central Park and Times Square) train.

There is beautiful natural, diffused light through the entire apartment, your room has a large window, a full sized bed and a built in closet. The kitchen is small, but the appliances are all brand new, and there is ample space to eat and prepare in the dining area. The bathroom is gorgeous with a deep tub. The living room is spacious with mid-century wooden furniture, and a breakfast nook looking onto South Second Street.

The neighborhood contains some of the best restaurants in Williamsburg and cool boutiques, bars, clubs, and grocery shopping. Close by is Caracas restaurant, M Shanghai, Rye, Walter Foods, Diner, Marlow and Sons, Nini's wine store, C-Town and Food Town grocery stores, Nail It salon, Audrey Spa, acupuncture, Brooklyn Bowl, 24 hour shopping. Fun music venues are in walking distance; Williamsburg Music Hall, Glasslands, Chromeo. Plus you can walk to the Williamsburg bridge, Lower East Side, East Village, Soho... everything! I'm so happy to be here and would love to have you stay with me.

If you prefer to take coffee outside Whirlybird is a block away serving Brooklyn's own Oslo coffee. I provide linens and towels as well.

Guest Access

Kitchen, living, wifi, speakers, bath, that's it... Breakfast/ guest granola is on top of the fridge, coffee and tea are in the cupboard above the fridge as well. Milk is inside, dishware/glassware is above the kitchen sink. I'm pretty happy to share everything else, but please let me know!

  • The site was convienent to my destination.

  • Ginger's place is nice and clean, very close to Marcy metro station that takes you into Manhattan in 20 minutes. Although the room is small for two people. If you travel light is fine. Ginger is very good host, she was waiting for us upon arrival and explained us every detail about the apartment that we were sharing with her

  • Nice host! I really enjoyed Williamsburg and Brooklyn seeing much of it by CitiBike.

  • My girlfriend and I spent 9 nights in Ginger's apt.
    Public transport is easy accessible, cafe's, bar's and restaurant's are near by.
    You can easily reach manhattan by subway (JMZ), by bike or even by walking.
    Ginger was at work most of the time, so we had the apt for ourselves, but she was very helpful and nice when we had any questions.

    We would definitely come back to her apt. Thank you!

  • Very nice place, great location and warm welcome by Ginger. All you need is there, much better than a hotel! Would recommend it to everyone and definitely go back myself when in New York! Thanks to Ginger for everything and we wish her good luck with her new restaurant! :)

  • Ginger was a great host - super low key but interested and engaged at the same time. Her space was perfect for our weekend stay and she really made us feel comfortable and made some wonderful suggestions as far as things to do in the area. Williamsburg is a great neighborhood and the proximity to Manhattan was wonderful. We will definitely be back.

  • My husband and I stayed at Ginger's place for one night. She was an excellent host and offered a lot of great suggestions for places to go around Brooklyn. Her location was ideal- very close to the M train.

  • Staying at Ginger's apartment was a big pleasure. You won't miss
    anything. Nice and clean appartment, great neighbourhood with cafes,
    bars, restaurants and it's just one stop by subway to Manhattan.
    Ginger was a lovely host, always friendly and helping us with finding
    the right places for us to go to. We would definitely recommend her
    apartment and come again!
