About this listing
Come to NYC and let me show you around, my place is special because is with a guide tour included ;-) Please be ready for some Venezuelan food, Samba dance and cheap beers around the corner.
Welcome to our brand new apartment, located in the middle of Williamsburg, the perfect base for your New York City experience. The apartment itself, the amenities and all the furniture in the apartment are brand new! We are surround by transportation options so you are only a short walk away from a train that will take you into Manhattan in 5minutes.
The apartment is only 3 short blocks to the Montrose Av L train and the same distance to the Lorimer JM and Broadway G train. All your bases are covered with these 4 trains that service all of Manhattan and the best parts of Brooklyn. You are literally 5 minutes ride away from Lower East Side, East Village and China Town and 20 minutes to Empire State Building and just a little bit longer to Central Park.
Williamsburg is the trendiest part of NYC, full of bars, restaurants, cafes and small 24hr grocery stores (called 'bodegas'). We have both been living in the area for years so we know all the best local spots in our area, not to mention the rest of NYC. Let us help you get to all the little hidden gems in Williamsburg that you wont find out about through a guide book. It also helps that we are walking distance to all these place.
The rooms in our apartment are newly furnished, the full size beds in the rooms are brand new and very comfortable, perfect for after a long day (or night) bouncing around the city. All rooms have central air so you will never be too hot or cold. This particular room has a skylight and a window which lets in natural light. It has a built in wardrobe, a desk and tons of room.
The bathroom is big and brand new!
We have a lounge are complete with a full bar which guests are invited to use. We also have a 42 inch smart TV which you can watch movies on and browse the internet after a long day on your feet, rainy days or are just feeling lazy. It rotates so you can watch it in the kitchen or sitting on the couch and you can also play PS3 on it! We also have a printer in case you want to print documents on it.
The kitchen has also been furnished brand new with a new big stove and fridge. If you like cooking all the utensils are there for you, as well as a kitchen table (under a skylight that lets in sun all day) for you to enjoy a meal. There is also a brand new sofa that you can lounge around lazily any time of the day, or night. There is tea and coffee that you can help yourself to, and there is almost always beer in the fridge that we are more than happy for you to take.
Also, if you are interested we have a spare cell phone which you can rent from us to use whilst you are here. You can call or text friends you may have here, make bookings for car services, restaurants, theatre or movie tickets, etc, etc. Ask us about it :)
You hosts are 2 very worldly, well travelled individuals that happily invite you into our home. We want to make sure your experience the most comfort you can whilst staying with us in NYC. Please dont hesitate to ask us any more questions,
We hope to see you soon :)

Interaction with Guests
I really enjoy taking people out to the places around.
Be ready for some Venezuelan food, samba dancing and cheap beer around the corner.
Basically there is no set of house rules that you have to follow.
We are not very strict on a set check in time or check out time, just let us know before you arrive and what time you will checking in and if you know what time you will be leaving, please let us know before hand. Come and go as you please, help yourself to anything in the kitchen or bathroom and make yourself at home.
One request is that you take your shoes off whilst in the apartment. Doing this will prevent noise from the hardwood floors travelling throughout the apartment.
It was a great experience! My room was very big and comfortable. The house is really tidy and clean.
The neighborhood is super relaxed and the house is near 3 subway stations which you can use to get to any point of the map if you wish. In my opinion is not in the most "trendy" part of williamsburg but is super near of it.
All in all it was a very satisfactory experience.
Javier and Jessica were very welcoming, despite some unexpected delays on our part! We ended up arriving quite late in the evening but there were no issues with getting inside and we met Javier the next day. They were very helpful with giving us tips on the best places to visit around New York and the best ways to get around. The room was exactly as expected, spacious and located near the metro. It was really easy to get around and just outside of the city, so not too loud but not too quiet. Overall we had some great times thanks to these guys and we couldn't have had it better!
Javier and Jessica were fantastic hosts. They were really accommodating even though we showed up really late (4am!). Javier stayed up to make sure we got in okay. The place was beautiful and in an excellent location (close to DunWell Donuts and Champs! - 2 of the best restaurants in NYC). They are incredibly knowledgeable about the area and are always happy to give advice on good places to eat and drink, and even come out for drinks. All in all, it was a great stay!
We had a great time at Javier's place. The location is very apt, 2 blocks from the L line stop that connects you to the heart of Williamsburg and Manhattan! The house was very clean and we had our privacy even with other guests in the flat, since the place is so huge. Javier was very responsive to our communication. Overall, we had an excellent time and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet stay in Williamsburg!
Javier é realmente um ótimo anfitrião. Ele nos encenei super bem e foi muito atencioso e certeiro nas informações. O apartamento dele é como nas fotos, sem surpresas. O quarto é realmente grande, gostei que o apartamento fica em andar térreo, assim não tivemos problemas com o transporte das malas. Tudo limpo e super organizado.
A localização do apartamento é super boa. Fica a 3 quadras de 3 linhas de metrô. Ótimo para quem pretende bater perna o dia todo e depois fechar com uma balãozinho no (website hidden) região do apartamento tem ótimos restaurantes e eu recomendaria em especial uma loja de produtos orgânicos que fazem lanches deliciosos. E fica aberta 24h. É realmente delicioso e foge do esquema junk Food: Natural & Organic Food - 187 Montrose Ave. Um pouco mais pra frente, ainda na mesma quadra tem um bar delicioso com boa variedade de cervejas. Vale bem a pena tb.

Location is good, not far from Manhattan. Clean room. Relaxing atmosphere and quite flexible attitude
My friend and I had an amazing time staying in Javier's apartment.
The place looks exactly as shown in pictures, the location was very convenient, as its close to many subways stations, and Javier was an incredible host who gave us advice on where to go and what to do. He is very kind and very attentive.
I would recommend his place to everyone, and if you go, dont miss the vietnamese sandwiches you find across the building, Javier recommended them to us, and they were soooo good!!!!

Looking forward to hear from you soon!!
