About this listing
Stay in our cozy bedroom in the coolest neighborhood in NYC, 30 feet from subway and 7 min ride to Manhattan. Perfect location if you want to get in and out the city easily and experience both Brooklyn and Manhattan at the fullest.
Surrounded by bars and restaurants, and bodegas open 24/7. Manhattan is only 7mins away by subway. Perfect location if you want to get in and out the city easily and experience both Brooklyn and Manhattan at the fullest. And Williamsburg brunches are the best in town!
A mere 100feet from the L train (Lorimer stop) and G train (Metropolitan Ave). Close to the neighborhood's best coffee shops, bars, restaurants, bodegas, and the big local park, McCarren Park.
It's also just a couple of blocks from Bedford Avenue. You can get to central Manhattan in 8-10min by train.
The apartment is very cozy, with 2 bedrooms, plus a windowless room / office. One main bedroom is for my boyfriend and I, the other one is for guests. The third windowless room has a futon sofa and a clothes rack and could be also be rented upon request for an additional fee.

NOTE: we have a very nice little dog named Skye, who is a gentle and friendly Shiba Inu. He hangs out with us and he sleeps in our room. Keep in mind that Shibas do shed hair in case you or members of your party have allergies to dog hair.
We are usually around, but we also work on very flexible schedules, so you'll probably see in the morning and before dinner time.
Williamsburg is the BEST neighborhoods in NYC, probably in the entire country. Within a few blocks you'll find boutique hotels, cozy restaurants, pools, parks, art classes, culinary salons, bowling alleys, yoga studios, design stores and the best coffee shops in town.
L train and G train are just a few steps from our door. In 7 minutes the L train takes you to Manhattan, and runs through the East Village, Union Square, and Chelsea/Meatpacking District.
Guests have access to the entire apartment, which includes the bedroom they are staying in, the living room, kitchen and shared bathroom. They also have access to our outdoor space, which is great for morning breakfasts or early evening beers.
Interaction with Guests
It's important to us that guests know they are renting from good, helpful and friendly people, and so we make a point of greeting everyone and saying hello when they arrive. After that, we will usually stay out of their way unless they need something or are just in the mood for a conversation. We are usually present for all or most of a guest's stay with exceptions occasionally during holidays when we may also go out of town.
The apartment is located in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg, which is noteworthy for being AWESOME. :) Seriously, it's a great neighborhood because it's the closest neighborhood in Brooklyn to Manhattan and has an amazing concentration of great bars and restaurants. We've been living here for 10 years and love it.
You probably can't find an apartment more conveniently located to the subway--our apartment is literally 80 feet (25 meters) from the subway entrance, which includes the L train into Manhattan and the G train which cuts from Brooklyn to Queens.
We are very friendly and open-minded couple, but there are a few basic rules:
--No smoking INSIDE the house. However, there's a backyard outside with chairs and table that you can use if you want to smoke (or would just like a place to hang out!)
--No additional "friends" allowed to stay overnight. You are however welcome to have friends come to the apartment to hang out.
I and my partner stayed at Ben & Giorgia's house for 11 nights. The rooms are clean as described. They were very friendly, responsible, and fun to talk. And a big bonus for us was they had a cute dog, Sky! Overall, that was a great experience! Highly recommended!
Was exactly as advertised; absolutely no complaints. Ben made us feel right at home right off the bat by showing us around the apartment.
Both hosts were gone for the majority of the time we were there, but we had no issues. The few conversations we did have, they were both very helpful with their restaurant suggestions.
The location was perfect; we could easily walk the bridge into manhattan or take the L / G trains which were right outside the apartment.
We had a great experience with Giorgia and Benjamin at their apartment. The apartment was clean and the location is indeed 'amazing'. You can practically see the entrance to the L line subway station from their front door. They were flexible and welcoming -- it's clear they're AirBnB pros!
The guys were great, gave good tips on what to get up to in the city as well as more local things too. Location was brilliant and the place was great value!
Séjour très agréable. Hôtes accueillants. Tout est en accord avec les photos. Propre.
Le point fort: la localisation---> rue animée, pleins de bars/restaurants (cf liste de conseils de giorgia et ben, qui est très bien). A 1min de la station lorimer du train L (passe toutes les 2 à 7min, 6 minutes de trajet pour arrivée manatthan)
We had a great week at Ben & Giorgia's place. The apartment is very clean and comfortable. They're very helpful, letting us arrive early on the first day and leaving our luggage a few extra hours after the check out. The place is really next to the subway and just one station away from Manhattan. Williamsburg is awesome, with great bars and restaurants and amazing vibe. We certainly recommend Ben & Giorgia's place. Thanks guys!
Fantastic location, really close to the subway making it easy to get around. Lots of great eats and places to have a few quiet drinks. This place has everything you need for your NYC adventure
