A pre-welcome to NYC from Greenpoint –one of the safest, quietest, quaintest, prettiest and most convenient neighborhoods the city has to offer. Five blocks away you have the East River Ferry, which for four dollars will shuttle you directly to Midtown (as well as Williamsburg, Dumbo and Governor’s Island). Three blocks away there’s the G train (three stops to 53rd and Lexington, one stop to Williamsburg –Brooklyn’s cultural/fashionable hub; by foot, a fifteen minute walk away). Greenpoint is also NYC’s film and TV locus. There’s always a movie or series being shot (the Boardwalk Empire set is just six blocks up at the end of Manhattan Avenue).
Your potential room is clean, quiet, private and sunny. It’s furnished with a freestanding clothes rack and closet, clean sheets and towels, a firm high-quality queen-sized bed. Your window looks out onto the back courtyard. The nights are extremely quiet. Our apartment is Box as opposed to Railroad, which means each room is well-delineated/not connected in tandem. We’ve also just recently remodeled the entire place: new paint jobs, furniture, floors, stove, etc. The spacious commons is equipped with an excellent sound system and TV/DVD player. The kitchen is spotless and equipped with all cooking essentials. Bathroom, spotless. We have WiFi.
The living room is provided for our guests to hang out or eat in. Preferably no eating in the bedrooms. You can also leave extra luggage in the living room.
We (Maria and myself, Joe) are married. We are quiet and courteous and NYC-busy so not often at home. We are looking for quiet, clean and respectful guests. We’re always excited to meet new people and would be glad to point you in the right direction as far as restaurants, venues, clubs, neighborhoods, etc. goes. If our place sounds/looks right to you, let us know!
DURING SELECT TIMES OUR MASTER BEDROOM/ENTIRE APT WILL BE FOR RENT. SEE OUR OTHER LISTING: 'Greenpoint Big Sunny Room'.
Other Things to Note
Please, no Check-Ins (the estimated time of arrival at our apartment) after 11:30pm.
Room Check-Outs at 10am when we have other guests arriving (otherwise, flexible). Either way, you are welcome to stay in the apartment -we just need the room cleared so that we can clean it for incoming guests.
Looking for respectful, quiet and friendly clean people.
1. No smoking inside bedrooms or eating, only in common and kitchen areas.
2. No party's. Good vibes.
3. Since bathroom is shared we'd kindly ask for guests to clean after themselves. Appreciated.
We did not meet Maria but Joe was friendly enough to wait for our check in at 11:30pm. For the rest we saw him just a few times, which sometimes was a little akward. The apt is located nearby a subway which is very convenient. Greenpoint is not so special but it is easy to get to other districts. The apt itself is very basic, sometimes smokey in the kitchen, room is very small (but warm!) and the apt has no real relaxing space. We did not feel super comfortabele, so we just came in late and left early for sight seeing, considering the (low) price and the fact we wanted to explore NY as much as possible that was fine! At their request we checked out before 10am. Expected to see Joe then or a note, but that was not the case. So hereby thanks, good luck with your careers and bye bye!
Joe was very accommodating. Our flight was extremely delayed and we didn't arrive until after midnight but it was not a problem. The apartment was very clean and the room was indeed very cozy as described. And although it was freezing outside it was always warm in the apartment. We really loved Greenpoint and had no problem getting other places. Thank you!
Maria and Joe were very communicative and sweet. We definitely felt welcomed when my boyfriend and I arrived at the apartment. The place is cute and clean, and has great access to transportation and lots of dining options. We had a great time :)
trés bon accueil ; maria et joe sont un couple trés sympathique et trés discret .
Maria and Joe are excellent hosts and the location is great!
The room is warm and cozy!
We had a wonderful time staying with Maria and Joe. They were warm, welcoming and helpful. Greenpoint is a wonderful neighborhood and a hidden gem of a neighborhood.
Very cozy and sweet spot. Our hosts were super kind + quick communicators. Greenpoint is a really great area, we were glad to be there!

We are a married couple. Of our many passions top on the list are travel, literature, film and language. Maria speaks five languages and has lived all over the world. I (Joe) am a student and an author. One of our favorite things about NYC (besides our wonderful neighborhood) is its cultural diversity. We are highly respectful, clean, quiet and busy people who love to meet, chat with and learn from others. It's our goal to make your stay in NYC as pleasant as possible.
