Private 1 Bedroom in a sunny Loft style apartment in Industrial Red Hook in South Brooklyn. The apartment is located in an old luggage factory building complex that was renovated into live/work artist studios 10 yrs ago.
The apartment itself is on the 2nd floor (walk up, but a breeze). With 18ft ceilings and 25ft of south facing windows overlooking the courtyard and park, its super spacious. It has small plank pine floors with lots of character, lots of plants and a pleasant mixture of sleek modern furniture and salvaged/reclaimed pieces. $95 a night is a good value and you'll save even more by using the laundry facilities in the building and the full kitchen: stove with oven, fridge. Feel free to use the french press. There's also bike parking in the building and car parking is easy to find on the street. The room itself is private, comfortable and nicely decorated.
It is an industrial neighborhood that at times can feel like a welcome respite from the tourist crowded enclaves that are prevalent in Manhattan and other parts of Brooklyn. With that said, if you want to dive in to the NYC experience, its just 10 mins from F,G trains on Carroll Street(25 mins to midtown manhattan, 30 mins to Williamsburg). B61 bus stops 2 blocks away, perfect for riding a bike down to the pier with a bottle of wine and looking at the statue of liberty or up into Brooklyn Heights/Cobble HIll and Park Slope. 5 minute walk to shops, bars and restaurants in Red Hook. 10 minute walk to bars, restaurants and shops in beautiful Carroll Gardens.
Your host works nights at a local restaurant so you'll pretty much have it to yourself during the day. I will be happy to direct you to all the cool local foodie places in the neighborhood as well as sightseeing and shopping. I am fun, friendly, clean, responsible and respectful and I look forward to hosting fun loving people and sharing my neighborhood and home with them!
You'll have access to a shared kitchen, bathroom, living room as well as laundry facilities in building and a central courtyard.

I love meeting new people and sharing what I love about my neighborhood and NYC. With that said, we all have our lives to lead and I expect you to respect my privacy as I will yours!
Its a charming neighborhood full of grit and candid local personalities. It offers great access to the waterfront and local industry and manufacturing. it has a strong presence of hand crafted products from wine, beer and liquor to chocolates, furniture and leather goods.
Renting a bike is ideal in Red Hook to get the most out of the local character. The B61 bus runs conveniently down the main artery and the F,G trains are a mere 15 minutes walk away.
Check out is noon, check in is 4pm. Whats mine is yours, just don't take it with you!
Feel free to consume anything in the fridge, make yourself some coffee. Booze is off limits though :(
If you are long term or want to host friends its totally cool, just check first!
Roberto is an ideal host in an ideal location. I will and have been back again. The space is beautiful, and Brooklyn is at your beck and call. Plenty of privacy and amenities - I would find it difficult to recommend too much!
A private room under the eaves in a beautiful space; complimentary coffee, and a brief guide to the neighborhood; great experience!
Roberto was an awesome host! he is very easy going and was very welcoming since the moment we arrived. We arrived on New Year's Eve and stayed for 5 days at his loft in Red Hook. Red Hook is a very interesting neighborhood with an industrial vibe. Loft is around 20min walk to the Carrol St. station so if you don't mind the walk (lots of great places around subway station) I would definitely recommend staying there! The loft is exactly as the pictures. Awesome place!
ps: He also speaks Spanish :)
We booked Roberto's room for my Dad who was visiting for Thanksgiving. It was the perfect place, being in the same building as my sister's apartment. Roberto was quick to respond to any questions and was a gracious host to my Dad--he enjoyed the room and having a quiet apartment to relax in.
Roberto was a great host. He was very flexible in accommodating our late arrival due to traffic and was very welcoming. The space was bright and clean and the neighborhood had some great restaurants. We explored the waterfront area and enjoyed seeing the Red Hook Community Farm, which Roberto recommended after we discovered that we both cared about the support of a local food system. A big plus was the fact that we could literally park in front of the building (a former luggage factory) any time of day or night without a search. Thank you, Roberto.
Sweet place, very interesting building and conveniently close to our friends off Butler street. Loved the interior decor too!

As an avid traveler I look forward to hosting other interesting and globally minded people. I enjoy being out doors and exercising so I do some rock climbing, biking and sailing in my spare time. Otherwise i like to tap into everything that NYC and my neighborhood has to offer, whether it be live music, food, drink and people.
