I have a very comfortable modern studio apartment to rent in a gorgeous three story house in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It's your own self-contained studio apartment within the house. You will have all the privacy you require. The place was renovated this year so everything is new.
15 minutes from Manhattan. It's a super location. Check the reviews!
You'll have your own private entrance from the front garden and your own brand new fully renovated bathroom. You also have full use of the porch (terrace) which looks over the park and front garden and has a dining table an chairs for eating or drinking outside.
The apartment is a large open-plan studio apartment. Chic and modern, the apartment features a very comfy queen (double) bed, brand new bathroom with all new fixtures and a really great shower, flat-screen HDTV with Netflix, Hulu Plus and local cable channels, free WIFI and work desk. Central Air conditioning.
The queen bed sleeps two very comfortably making it a great place for a couple or two friends to stay. Great for solo travelers too. There's a self-controlled thermostat in your room, so you can make the place as warm as you want.
It's a short term rental only so there is no full kitchen - there is a fridge and microwave here for you plus a kettle for your morning tea and coffee, plus all the bowls, cups and plates you'd need to make your own breakfast or lunch. There are 100's of fantastic restaurants in the area too, and I have a great list of recommendations, plus lots of delivery menus here.
Included in the rental is:
• Your own private en-suite bathroom with shower is right off your room.
• Fresh sheets and towels are all provided.
• Free High speed internet with Wifi.
• Flatscreen HDTV with thousands of movies and TV shows.
• Full use of the outdoor porch and garden to eat outside in the summer
• Hairdryer, iron, ironing board.
• A washing machine and drying facilities.
• Complimentary toiletries - shower gel, shampoo, toothpaste, shaving foam etc.
• Kettle to make tea and coffee
• A personal fridge and microwave in the apartment
• lots of free parking on the street
• and also lots of friendly advice on any of the great local amenities from a local who knows the city well.
The house has lots of outdoor space and sits right on Cooper Park - one of the few parks in Williamsburg. It's a super quiet block, but only minutes from the subway and all the trendy bars and restaurants of Williamsburg. You would never know that you're only fifteen minutes from Manhattan.
The front porch opens out onto a garden with a view of the park. There are chairs and a table on the porch where you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee or have a drink at night.
The park has just been renovated, and has tennis and handball courts, a dog run, basketball courts, a kids playground, exercise bars, brand new skate park, and is popular for jogging. There's a yoga studio across the street and a gym five minutes away that does daily rates. McCarren pool is a recently renovated open air swimming pool just a short walk away.
You'll be right in the center of Williamsburg - with all its world class restaurants, hip bars, and great shopping - but the street is totally peaceful, safe, and quiet at night. You're just three minutes walk to the Graham Ave L subway stop.
A short walk gets you to the G train too to get you to other parts of Brooklyn or Queens. It's a very convenient location and a really great neighbourhood.
I'm a filmmaker from Ireland and having travelled the world love to welcome guests and meet new people. I've lived in the neighborhood for almost fifteen years, and I'll do everything I can to make you feel at home here. As my studio is in the same building check in and out times are usually very flexible.
It's my own house, not a rental, so no need to worry about running into grumpy New York City landlords on your way in! :)
It's a great house. I'm a very easy going and I love to have guests. I'm on the top floor most of the time so I'll be well out of your way, if I'm here at all. I'll be more than happy to share any of my NYC top tips and favourite places with you.
I can speak French and Italian, Spanish and some German if that helps!
Look forward to seeing you here.
You get the entire garden apartment to yourself. You have your own door to the house, so you can come and go as you please and are the only people using this entrance. You also get your own private bathroom and shower. It's your own studio apartment in Brooklyn.
Interaction with guests
I work from home a lot in my studio which is on the top floor, so I'm often around to make sure you're comfortable while staying here. We have completely separate spaces though so you will only see me when you need directions or help with finding a great local restaurant.
I know the area really well having lived here 15 years and always happy to suggest places to go, eat, drink, shop, how to get around.
This is your home away from home - please just take as good care of it as you do of your own home.
If there's something you need, just ask me! I would prefer that you ask rather than not be happy! :)
No pets, sorry.
No smoking in the house. Outside in the garden or porch is fine.
No guests allowed apart from those agreed to in the original reservation.
This is a quiet residential block, so no parties. No loud music.
They keys for the place are very expensive to get copies made of so please don't lose them. If you do I'll have to charge a $50 per key fee.
Cancel up to 7 days before your trip and get a 50% refund. Cancel within 7 days of your trip and the reservation is non-refundable.
I'm an Irish-born filmmaker living in Brooklyn since 2000.
Friendly and easy going. Always happy to meet new people so I really enjoy meeting and hosting new people with Airbnb.
I've travelled a lot over the years, so I know what it's like to be away from home living out of a small suitcase. Hopefully that helps in me making your stay here as comfortable as possible!
