Located in the heart of Brooklyn's most stylish neighborhood, this amazing apartment has served as an inspiring home for a New York-based writer for the past 10 years. The space, which is over a hundred years old and literally steps away from the neighborhood's best restaurants and bars, is loaded with charm (moldings, exposed brick, skylight, etc.) and nicely decorated with a mix of modern and antique furnishings. Only five minutes from the Bedford Avenue subway, you can be in downtown Manhattan in 15 minutes and anywhere else within half an hour.
It's a two-floor walk-up, railroad style apartment with a queen bed, and a small office with a foldout couch (full-sized), so it's ideal for a couple or two close friends traveling together. The apartment is located two floors above a bar—not a terribly noisy one, but a bar nonetheless, so may not be ideal for extra-sensitive sleepers.
Flat-screen television and Xbox 360 with streaming Netflix are included to ensure you have a great, relaxing stay.
David was the perfect host! He quickly responded to all our questions, he was friendly, and he also gave us lots of information on the neighbourhood and on the apartment. The apartment is really beautiful, we had an amazing stay! The apartment was clean and everything was exactly as described in the airbnb ad. The Neighbourhood is great btw, lots of good restaurants and bars, lots of amazing shops, and staying in Brooklyn is IMO very comfortable; Manhattan can be quiet stressful from time to time.
Thanks again David!
I wholly recommend staying at David's place. The location is great and the apartment is fantastic, we were really surprised at how big it was as we usually stay in the city. David was easy to get hold of if we needed him and had some great recommendations for dinner. Stay at David's place, you won't regret it. Thanks David! Jem
David's Williamsburg apartment is fantastic!! The location is amazing - very easy to get to Manhattan by subway and walking distance to all the best local bars and restaurants. It was clean, spacious and had everything we needed and David was very quick to respond to any questions we had. Would definitely stay there again!
This is a lovely apartment in an amazing location! I had a great time and David was incredibly helpful getting everything arranged. I would definitely stay here again.
The flat is awesome!
The location is perfect
David was faultless
Strongly recommend this apartment
As advertised! This apartment is all about location. It's just minutes from the L train, Du Mont burger is across the street, and all the bars and food you can image in Williamsburg! The apt is bright and neat, and the Mod style is really great. The perfect spot for your Brooklyn adventure!!!
David give us the best Williamsburg experience. His apartment is very well located, in the middle of Bedford avenue, just some minutes from the L train (one station to Manhattan). The building is old, but charming, with problems of bad maintaining in the stairs and the hallways. Don't be discouraged: the apt. is on good shape, airy and well-lit, with a lot of space and some stylish furniture. The TV and conection for wi-fi and our iPods were available and works well. We could invite friends for dinner, as there's a table for 6 and cookings utensils (including Le Creusets!). David also gave us smart advices about eating and going out in the neighbourhood, which, for us, is simply the best place for a 30-years-old-traveler stay on NY.
David's place is really amazing, perfect for a couple. The apartment is located on Bedford Av., where you can find a lot of nice bars and restaurants, great alternative for Manhattan (which also can be easily reach getting the L train, just a short walk from the apartment). David is a great host, always ready to help us. Really glad for had chosen his place ;)
David was a great host, very accommodating to my schedule for arrival and departure, and super friendly. I arrived to a bottle of wine and a couple breakfast goodies which I thought was a lovely touch. His apt. is right in the middle of everything, steps away from tons of awesome shops, cafes, restaurants, etc. It's a 5 min. walk to the L train and a 15 min. walk to the Metropolitan Ave. stop (G and L train I think?), so it's very convenient for getting around.
The apartment is above a bar so there was some noise happening on weekend nights with the windows open, but I am a light sleeper and even I didn't really have an issue falling asleep. It's a great place to stay to experience the vibrant, creative neighborhood. Thanks, David!
The apartment is great and has a lot of character. David is a really good host and was in easy contact the entire time. A very smooth airbnb experience.
The location is right in the centre of Bedford Avenue, Williamsburg. This obviously makes the apartment a little noisier however this is definitely outweighed by the excellent amenities on offer!
A truly NY experience.
