Professional induction stove warmers with induction cookware. Home to an artist couple the space is a beautiful, unique and a quiet abode.

I stayed in Micah and Luisa's loft for a month while looking for a more permanent place to live. It was perfect. Very sunny and bright. Simple, and well furnished. It's also huge!
Micah and Luisa are super nice, friendly, and helpful. Some of the best Airbnb hosts I've had by far!
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed Casa Lula! Micah and Luisa were wonderful hosts who welcomed us with donuts, apples, a bottle of champagne, and a map of their favorite neighborhood spots. Great location and great hospitality through and through :)
I liked it so much I stayed an extra month. The loft is beautiful, sun-soaked, and appointed with almost anything you need. If it doesn't have something, in my case a rolling pin, Micah and Luisa probably have it.
Micah and Luisa are wonderful hosts. They live right next door and are easy to contact. Most of all they are genuine, hard working and honest.
I was worried about the location in Greenpoint because, not being familiar with the area, it seemed remote. Actually, it is a vibrant community, there is a grocery a block and a half away, a bakery next door, a park a block away...in a word great. I walked to the Nassau G subway stop in 6 minutes. I walked to the Bedford L stop in Williamsberg in 13 minutes. I biked to the Williamsberg Smorgasberg (not to be missed) in 5 minutes. Prospect Part is an easy 30 minutes bike ride. The Bedford L stop is a mecca. There are hundreds of bike chained up there so biking and going into Manhattan is rote. Greenpoint itself sports some interesting restaurants and bars.
Everyone in the building was very friendly. Overall an extremely positive experience and one I may come back for more of.
Luisa and Micah are amazing !!
(and so is their apartment ! :) )
L'appartement de Luisa et Micah est vraiment super : très propre, lumineux et agréable. Idéal pour passer un séjour à New York.
C'était notre premier semaine à NYC et nous avons beaucoup aimé Brooklyn et le quartier où nous vivions. Tous les matins nous prenions notre petit déjeuner dans un café très proche et le soir on appréciait l'accalmie et l'ambiance après les journées intenses de visites ! Nous sommes sortis dans des bars et restos très sympas non loin de l'appartement.
Merci encore à Micha pour son accueil et sa gentillesse ! Il nous a fourni de bonnes adresses et bons plans pour manger et visiter.
Comme petite balade très sympa en bateau qui part de Greenpoint jusqu'au pont de Brooklyn : vraiment top !
Merci encore ! Nous avons passé une très très bonne semaine.
Staying here was fantastic. The space is amazing and with really nice furniture and decor. The view of Manhattan from the roof really takes your breath away! Micah was great host, he had made us and map of the area with recommended places to eat/drink and shop and we arrived to a freshly baked sourdough which was a lovely touch. And he was also on hand if we needed anything or had any problems. The area was perfect for us, close enough to the main Williamburg streets that we could walk there but just out of it so you could get away from the crowds of cool people when necessary :) The G Line subway stop that is closest is very slow but we didn't mind walking to the L Line 10mins away when we wanted to get into Manhattan and for some areas the G line was useful. The building is host to a lot of businesses and artist studios that only adds to the buzzy creative vibe but I would say that because of this there is the odd bit of noise at night that didn't bother us but might others. Over all I would highly recommend staying here, we didn't want to leave.
The views are amazing! The apartment is beautiful, clean and comfortable. The location is great, we could walk to so many shops and restaurants we wanted to visit. Parking was never a problem. The neighborhood felt safe. Micah and Luisa were wonderful hosts. They were always timely with responses. Micah checked us in, was available and helpful while we were there. They helped make our stay in Brooklyn an even better experience.
This apartment was absolutely amazing! It is close to so many good restaurants/bars/shops. Luisa and Micah were so quick to respond to any questions and went out of their way to make us feel welcome.
Would recommend this to anyone keen to experience the best of Brooklyn!
The loft was an amazing space- just as the photos indicated. The place has a Japanese-style wet room/ bath room complete with heated flooring. It is definitely a diy residence and allthe better for it. Very characterful and is set in a secure, safe building.
Micah & Luisa were extremely helpful and sweet, peaceful hosts. I would definitely go back!! The area itself was also much better than I expected. I was a bit worried initially about being outside of Manhattan but it's only $15 ride away and Greenpoint/ Williamsburg is much nicer area to live in. Very unique, cheap, loads of bakeries and quite self contained. I ended up spending hardly any time in Manhattan in the end.
Check out Paulie Gee's for amazing pizzas. Everything is within your reach. It's a perfect place to stay if you want to experience another side of New York.
Thanks for having me, M & L!
Greenpoint is a wonderful place to stay. It's peaceful but if you are looking for fun restaurants and nightlife it is all nearby.
Micah and Luisa were really great. The place has great light and the views of the city are amazing! I loved going out onto the roof and taking in the city.
