Interaction with Guests
We are happy to answer any questions and give you the real Brooklyn experience; though, we do have an office in the same building and many guests feel they have the whole apartment to themselves.
Just across the East River from Manhattan’s bright lights is Williamsburg, one of Brooklyn's most popular and exciting neighborhoods. You can explore the lively arts, music, and boutique scene here, chill in numerous cafes, dine in some very good restaurants — and soak up the creative energy and vibe of young artists and models.
Interestingly, the hip Williamsburg scene plays out against a backdrop of old industrial buildings, modest attached homes (though punctuated by increasing numbers of expensive waterfront high rises). All of this is bordered by a long-standing residential community of Hasidim to the south and a distinctive Polish area to the north. Williamsburg is a mish-mash of cultures and vistas.
A mecca for creative energy for over a decade…If there's one neighborhood that's indicative of the "new Brooklyn," it's Williamsburg. Come take a look!
Stroll around and take in Williamsburg Street Art or enjoy easy access to Manhattan with the Bedford L Subway train. Street Parking found outside or there is a Paid Parking Garage in the building next door.
Other Things to Note
We love our neighborhood and our AirBnb guests agree, our location is awesome. Close proximity to the action of shopping, dining and nightlife with the quiet ambiance of park-side living.

This place is charming and close to everything. It's very clean. Their vintage style makes the place closer to an old school Brooklyn flat and it's a welcome reprieve from the popup lofts and overly soulless newer buildings. They work evenings so the place is very private and you'll be able to work at the desk in the room if you need to. Also, there's a small sofa in the room with another little table so this room is a bit more like a mini studio than you'd expect, which is nice. The pick of seamless food options around here is also impressive.
Definitivamente un sueño hecho realidad! Durante 13 días nos sentimos en nuestro hogar, gracias a la hospitalidad de Miko y Lauren quienes nos hicieron sentir muy cómodos en el departamento. El barrio es perfecto para conocer Nueva York desde la mirada del habitante, más que desde la perspectiva, a veces sesgada, que un turista puede tener. Alojar en Brooklyn además nos permitió tener momentos de mucha calma, tomando distancia del ritmo vertiginoso propio de los lugares de interés en New York, que siempre se encuentran atiborrados de público. Cerca del departamento, que además es muy acogedor, encontramos todo lo que necesitamos para una estadía perfecta: estación de metro que nos dejaba en Manhattan en pocos minutos, parque, supermercado, cafés deliciosos para el desayuno y muchos bares para cerrar nuestras jornadas.
Perfect location, massive room, probably the most comfortable bed in the world and very friendly hosts - dream come true indeed!
Comfortable bed, clean apt., peaceful area! It is as it's presented on the website. Thanks for Miko and Lauren. Will come back again.
Miko and Lauren were very accommodating and welcomed us to their wonderful home. The room was just as it is presented on the web site, and it is very clean and quiet. McCarren Park is just outside, and the neighbourhood has a very safe feeling. Great breakfast joint (Urban Rustic) was right around the corner, and grocery stores just down the block. We would definitely stay here any time we are in Brooklyn!
After experiencing some difficulties booking with other hosts, making a reservation with Miko and Lauren was really easy and convenient. I actually made this booking for my brother and sister-in-law, so this is their feedback. The apartment is in a great location in Williamsburg (having lived a couple of blocks away for 4 years, I can attest to this!). The room they stayed in was nice, clean and comfortable, and the apartment is spacious enough so you have a quiet and private stay. The only thing they mentioned that may cause an issue for someone older or a bit frail is that you have to climb a few flights of stairs to get to the apartment. For them this was not a problem. All in all, a great option for exploring New York!
Miko & Lauren's accommodations were exactly as described. Very pleasant, worked out great. Would like to use their apartment again in the future.

We have been living here for over 10 years and still can't get enough! Lauren is a professional sommelier and I am a graphic designer working in the music industry. We love to travel, eat good food and laugh... our motto is "do whatever you want, all the time".
