About This Listing
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'.

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 had a lovely stay with Maria and Joe! When we arrived Joe helped us with the bags and we got our own Keys. The shared bathroon was available for us whenever we needed it even if they had to go to work. They shared the kitchen with us like it was ours, plates, fridge, sink, everything. Whenever we had questions they did everything possible to help us. The Day we left they even let us store our luggage in the Apartment although there were new guests arriving.
The neighbourhood is very interesting, food is good and way cheaper than in Manhattan. There are Supermarktes and pharmacies around as well. From the river side You Get The MOST AMAZING view on Manhattan skyline. There is a fairy that takes You around downtown, def. worth a ride. Public transportation by subway was easy, quick and efficient.
All in all they are warm and lovely hosts, very clean, flexible and easy going. We would stay there any time again!
Maria and Joe were really nice and discreet throughout our stay. They welcomed us warmly and were helpful in giving us all the information we needed. They are very interesting people, which is nice to talk to and exchange point of views!
They have provided not only the room, but also the living room so that we could comfortably accommodate our luggage. The room is small but clean, the bed is comfortable, and we always slept well. The Greenpoint neighborhood is quiet but full of life and young people, with many restaurants, cafes and shops. From Greenpoint you can easly reach Williamsburg and the Queens by walk, or take the Metro for easly reach Manhattan. It was really a nice stay!
Maria y Joe son muy simpaticos y nos indicaron como llegar al apartamento. Joe nos estaba esperando cuando llegamos y nos explicó como llegar al centro. El apartamento aunque pequeño estaba muy limpio y muy bien situado.
Había una parada de metro(linea G) a uns 5 min, en 30 min estabamos en Times Square. Ha sido una experiencia muy buena. Sin duda repetiriamos con Maria y Joe.
Maria and Joe were great, friendly hosts! The room (and apartment as a whole) was quiet, clean, and just what we needed after long days of walking and exploring around the city. We liked being close to the subway, and also just a short walk from Williamsburg. Thanks!
We had a great experience, although we didn't get a chance to meet Joe. Maria was super welcoming and friendly. From being super accommodating with check out times, to lending us an umbrella without us asking, to recommending a great brunch place- we had a great time.
