The Space

Welcome to Greenpoint! One of the coolest neighborhoods in New York City.

900sq foot 1.5 bedroom apartment for short term or weekend rentals. The flat has windows on three sides, a fully-equipped and brand new kitchen, queen sized bed with feather duvet, separate office and dressing room, huge lovely living room with a big comfortable couch, and a rooftop with the most amazing views of the Manhattan skyline you can get from Brooklyn.

The sofa sleeps one person very comfortably (it's 7 feet long), and there is an additional very comfortable, self-inflating and deflating air bed that sleeps 2, in addition to the queen-sized bed.

Wifi, towels, and linen included.

You are two blocks from the G subway train, or a quick 10-minute walk to the Bedford L subway stop, in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. From there, it's one very quick stop to Manhattan.

Lots of adorable and hip restaurants and bars in the neighborhood. You're steps to the waterfront, two parks, and there's a grocery store across the street.

Make yourself at home!

P.S. Currently, there is no cleaning fee for your stay. The expectation is that you'll be able to use a broom and a sponge to leave the apartment in the same fantastic condition you found it, saving yourself some money.

  • We just returned from a lovely weekend in Brooklyn. Our stay at Alana's beautiful apartment was everything we expected. The apartment was delightful and more than comfortable. The views of the city were great especially from the rooftop. Alana left a very detailed list of in and out instructions ( and even left beer in the fridge for us to enjoy). Our daughter had picked up the keys ahead of time and left two large floor fans which came in handy with the heat in the high 80's. I would certainly recommend Alana's place to anyone, and would definitely come back - much more comfortable than a hotel and closer to my daughters place. Staying at Alana's apartment was the next best thing to feeling like we were living in the city. 10 star review from us!**********

  • Wow- what a great trip we had this past weekend. I'm so glad we stayed at Alana's we got to explore such a great little neighborhood that was easy to get in and out of by foot and subway. I can't say enough about this place. Alana was extremely helpful with our questions and got back to us immediately whenever we contacted her. We basically had the best time ever. Not exaggerating. Her place is comfortable, nicely furnished and filled with plants, sunlight and interesting art and the neighborhood is filled with amazing restaurants, cafés, bakeries, etc. There's also a beautiful park on the water a couple of blocks away (Bushwick) that has a beautiful view of manhattan. I recommend this place 100%.

  • The apartment was amazing. It was the perfect getaway for the weekend. The area was great, it did not take us long at all to get into Manhattan being so close to the subway line, and it gave us a great opportunity to explore the stunning neighbourhood around the apartment. (If I was to move to New York this is probably the area I would move to). Alana was the perfect host, she was always prompt in getting back to us, made it very easy for us to check in and left us a great welcome pack with maps and some great restaurants in the area.
    The apartment itself was better than described, clean, and the large windows throughout gave a breathtaking view of downtown Manhattan. We even had a picnic on the roof.
    Would highly recommend this to anyone who is visiting New York.
    Thanks Alana for a great weekend :)

  • Alana's apartment is gorgeous, clean, and has amazing light-- I have extreme apartment envy! She was super attentive and accessible via text and AirBnB messaging. We had everything we needed, can't think of a single detail that she didn't cover-- down to a welcome packet of house rules, neighborhood recommendations, and other tips for her guests.

  • What a beautiful and clean space! I contacted Alana for my sister and her boyfriend who came to visit me from Korea. They loved everything about the apt! Alana was very professional and a great communicator. I would highly recommend Alana and her place for future guests.

  • Wow - what a great apartment with a incredible light and views of Manhattan. Alana was there to check my family in and made us feel welcome. A very tidy and super clean apartment.

  • Alana's place is gorgeous, beautifully decorated, comfortably laid out and with a lovely roof top view. Alana was a wonderful hostess, with a book of suggestions ready to go, clean bedding and even the offer of the food and drink in the cupboards! Only recommendation to future guests would be to bring earplugs and an eye mask if you're a light sleeper as there are no curtains so it's extremely bright in the morning and the street noise can be high at times.

  • Alana (email hidden): she's super-quick and really helpful with her responses, plus you can see that she genuinely cares about her guests having a great time. The apartment itself is spotless and just as described: full of light and spacious, nicely decorated without being cluttered, well organised without being sterile. I particularly enjoyed the view of the Manhattan skyline from the living room and (...if you stick to the right side of it...) even from the bed (which is really comfy by the way). The only downside was that some of the people in the building do not share Alana's high standards when it comes to cleanliness but if you don't mind that, once you leave the lower floors behind you, you can enjoy an amazing apartment that feels like home.

  • We had a fantastic stay at Alana's apartment in Brooklyn. Clean, nicely kept and with an amazing views of the Manhattan skyline, this made for a great base for our time in New York.

    Alana was extremely helpful and a great AirBnB'er! She came back to us on our messages within minutes, she left some helpful info/spare keys etc and was very accommodating with late changes of plan.

    A highly recommended Brooklyn base! - Thanks Alana!

I'm run an interactive creative agency in Brooklyn called Radish Lab ((website hidden)). I'm digital journalist and producer who hails from Canada. I like to obsess over my next great meal, design project, and travel adventure. I have successfully kept 2 house plants alive for a very long time. I wish I had more time to read all the New Yorkers in my apartment. Hopefully you'll enjoy those :)
