Great one bedroom apartment with an exciting Brooklyn vibe. Lively decorated with lots of colors and street art from neighborhood artists. There is a flat screen TV connected to netflix to enjoy movies at the end of your day.
Hello fellow world travelers,
I'm posting my whole one-bedroom apartment for rent. The room has a queen bed and an extra mattress for a third person, if needed. The neighborhood is beautiful, safe, and up and coming; filled with artists, bars, cafes, restaurants, GREAT VIBE!
Best thing of the apartment: it is located one block away from the L train (Dekalb Ave stop) which will get you to the heart of Manhattan in 15 min. and to Williamsburg in 10 minutes!
The apartment includes WIFI internet and has a new TV with AppleTV (netflix connected to watch movies).
You can check out more about the neighborhood on Bushwick Daily. There are art galleries, restaurants and bars all around. Lot's of art and music shows in the area for your unforgettable time in Brooklyn ;)
Answer questions as soon as I can, hand in keys (try to do it personally) and recommend things to do in the neighborhood
L train a block away (best train because it connects to every other train

experience started positive, and then took a turn for the negative. I picked this property due to the location, and the overwhelmingly positive feedback on the host’s page. I experienced certain problems that I thought it fair to recount them here.
First, the positive: the apartment is extremely well located, as per the description, and it is very easy to access Manhattan on the L-train. The area is nice, and safe, and the host provides a list of restaurants, bars, and cafes nearby. The apartment has a large flatscreen TV with Netflix, and high speed wireless internet.
The negative: the night of my arrival, I arrived to the apartment to shower after a long day in the city. I found the bathroom in an utterly dismal state: there was a dirty, wet towel hanging; there was hair inside the tub, and on the floor; the floor was grimy; there was toothpaste spit in the sink. It was evident that the bathroom had been very recently used and not cleaned. There was a general layer of dust throughout the apartment, especially in the bedroom and living room, which I was willing to look past, but the dirty bathroom was unhygienic, unsanitary, and flat-out unacceptable. It was very late, and I had a busy schedule, so I decided to clean the bathroom myself and ask for a refund of the cleaning fee after.
The host refused to refund the cleaning fee, saying she had cleaned the apartment, despite the situation described above. I had spent 20 mins scrubbing the bathroom upon my arrival, and felt that I was entitled to a refund of the cleaning fee. It wasn’t about the money, so much as it was about the unpleasant experience of cleaning someone else’s mess. I contacted Airbandb customer service, and they immediately reimbursed me for the cleaning fee.
Finally, there are other aspects of the apartment that were not ideal: the heater in the bedroom is broken, and it’s very cold. The host provided an extra duvet in place of the heater, but it was stained, patched in duck tape, and not in a washable cover. One of the towels was heavily stained (but freshly laundered). And (outside the host’s control) the fixtures in the bathroom are run down: the toilet and shower and extremely old and difficult to use. The bed frame is so uncomfortable that my roommate and myself had sore backs during the entire stay of our trip.
Taken together, there are some positive aspects (location; TV) but the overall lack of cleanliness, other problems with the amenities (bedroom, linens, shower and toilet) lead me to not recommend this property."
We stayed 10 days in Marus apartment and it was wonderful! We really felt at home and welcome. She is really nice and always reachable if there are any problems or questions. The area is safe and there are good possibilities to get to Manhattan or other places of Brooklyn. Totally recommended.
We enjoy our stay in Maru's cosy apartment. This is a good location to discovering Brooklyn and Manhattan. Maru was attentive to answer our questions.
my stay in the Maru's apartment was excellent! the apartment is well located! the neighborhood is great, with many incredible things around and the proximity to the metro line l is perfect to enjoy the best of manhanthan and Brooklyn.
and Maru is excellent! always available and flexible! Surely be back! Thanks Maru!!
La surface de ce petit appartement sympathique et original était parfaite pour une personne. Il mériterait un bon coup de peinture fraîche et quelques ustensiles supplémentaires pour cuisiner, mais il a l’avantage de se trouver à 5 minutes à pied de la station Dekalb de la L line à Brooklyn. Compter toutefois 45 minutes jusqu’à Times Square sur Manhattan.
Maru m’a fait confiance et m’a laissé les clefs à mon hôtel, car nous ne pouvions pas nous voir le jour de mon aménagement. Elle m’a laissé aussi des informations sur Brooklyn avec des adresses de restaurants. Elle est tout de suite venue, lorsque j’ai eu des problèmes avec la cuisinière à gaz ou la chasse d’eau et a fait réparer aussitôt. Lorsque j’avais une question ou une autre, elle me répondait très vite. Je me suis bien sentie dans cet appartement, sauf lors de grand froids : quand il y a la bise dehors : il y en a aussi dedans. A l’instar de la plupart des anciens appartements new yorkais, il n'est pas des mieux isolés.
Maru was a perfect host, easily contactable and very helpful. Our train was delayed a little coming in, but she was happy to work around this when handing over the keys.
The place itself is a sweet little spot (bright, clean, cool decor), a minute's walk from the Dekalb stop on the L subway line. This was perfect for getting me and my brother in and out of Manhattan and down the few stops to all the great stuff (food, shops, music, bars) happening in Williamsburg. Not a lot in the area itself but it's so accessible we almost liked a chance to get away from all the activity. Nice coffee shop a block away should be mentioned though!
A spare mattress was great to have too if you are not a couple wishing to share a bed. Good size apartment for two people.
Also we loved having the Netflix and Apple TV in the mornings and evenings, just what you want after a day walking the city!
Would stay again, thank you!
Maru was a great host, her place was nice and very unique. She was easy to communicate with and very friendly! It was easy to get to and from Manhattan as well as other neighborhoods in Brooklyn.
We stayed for a week and really enjoyed it. The L train gets you to Manhattan in very reasonable time and Bushwick has some very impressive bars and restaurants (and nice street art)! Thank you Maru!
From day one Maru was quick to respond, always able to communicate with, she was very helpful!
Loved the decor at the apt, it was small but super cozy, and is a short walk to the L train station.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
