About this listing
Charming Bedford Ave Apartment
Our 3 bedroom apartment with lots of old-world charm has all the amenities to make your stay in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood a great one.
The location can’t be beat. The apartment is located on Bedford Ave only one block from the Bedford L train subway station. This means that you are in the very center of Williamsburg’s Northside neighborhood, and only 1 subway stop from Manhattan’s East Village, and 3 stops from Union Square.
The apartment is in a small building with only one other residential unit and is on the top floor of a 3-story building. Since we have the whole floor, we face both the street and the rear. The apartment is sunny and bright all day and we’ve installed dark curtains for those sleep-in mornings.
The apartment is set up for a family or friends traveling together. None of the bedrooms share a common wall so all bedrooms have privacy.
There are 3 separate bedrooms, two with queen beds and one with full a size bed. The living room and kitchen are separate rooms but a large archway brings them both together. The bathroom has a claw foot tub with shower. There are 3 air conditioning units for summer cooling, and baseboard heating throughout for winter heating.
The apartment includes many amenities you would expect at home, including a 42” TV with cable, internet radio player/ipod hookup, wifi internet, clothes washer, and air conditioning. Kitchen includes coffee maker, toaster oven, hot water kettle, and utensils and pans for stovetop cooking. The butcher block dining table seats 6.
Fresh linens and towels are provided, and since the apartment will be professionally cleaned prior to your visit, please let us know if you'd like additional towels or linens.
Part of the charm of the apartment begins with its floors. They are beautifully refinished wide planks that are not entirely level in all areas. The stove is a 1930’s “Bengal” which you will light with a long handled lighter or match (the burners work, but the oven does not). The bedrooms are small but perfectly adequate and the beds and bedding are all new.
A few items to note: Although we are located on Bedford Ave, the apartment is surprisingly quiet, but does have the element of a lively street at night on the weekends. People who are sensitive to this may not find the apartment quiet. Additionally the staircase leading up to the apartment is narrow, and may not be suitable for people with disabilities.
We live here only part time and we have made a special effort to give you lots of space for your belongings so when you unpack, you will not feel like you are tiptoeing through someone else’s apartment.
Guests have access to the whole apartment.
Interaction with Guests
I will generally not be around during your stay as I will be in San Francisco when not in New York. Chase Hartwig will be available to answer any questions or help you out with anything apartment or neighborhood related. The apartment is perfect for guests who want to be totally independent.
The L subway line is 1 block away, convenient to getting into Manhattan and to East Williamsburg and Bushwick. Northside Luxury car service is directly across the street and they are highly recommended for Black Car service around town or to the airport. You can call to reserve or just pop in the office and request a car. You'll get one in minutes.
No tobacco smoke inside the building.

Nice appartment, great location. There is a stunning view over Manhattan within a short walk. Don't miss Smorgasburg, the outdoor foodie market nearby om saturdays.
The only problem was the internet, which was not working most of the time. Josh answered immediately and did a lot to try to fix it. He offered us a refund of 50$ for the inconvenience.
Josh's apartment was exactly how he described it in the ad – cute and charming with everything you needed for a great stay. Fresh towels, lavender soaps, strong air condition and comfortable beds made the apartment a nice oasis in our hectic NYC vacation schedule. Josh was always fast to answer his e-mails in a friendly manner, and his employees at Rosamunde were very nice and helpful.
Host directions were clear and apartment was pretty close to what I expected from photos. Neighborhood is great.
Nice place, worked comfortably for our party of six (three separate double bedrooms).
great location, tons of bars nearby, close to L subway, best taco food truck next street :)
everything like at photos
thanks Josh !
Josh's apartment was perfect for our stay. Fantastic location, comfortable and clean and the air con coped well with the heatwave we experienced. Some great original touches too such as the bath. The guys at the Rosamunde where we picked up the keys were so helpful - especially Chase - and everything you might need is closeby, inc the subway into Manhattan. We had a great time. Andy
Bedford Ave is from my point of view the best location you can get in NY. In the midst of trendy Williamsburg, close to the L-metro line only one station away from Manhatten.
Josh is very friendly and the whole organization with the keys etc. is easy and convenient.
Nous étions un groupe de 6, et avons pu profiter de l appartement durant 9 nuits. Celui ci est très bien situé dans un quartier agréable avec tout à proximité ( ligne de metro a 150 mètres de l appart sauf le soir et le week ligne a 10 min a pied) , ainsi que les commerces, restaurants.
L appartement est bien équipe ( juste le four/ gaziniere) qui est certe fonctionnel mais vieux et peu pratique.
Tout le reste de l appartement est bien. Josh a répondu a toute nos questions, nous a même porter conseils, et a répondu a nos besoins lors de notre séjour.
Nous conseillons cette appartement.
