This apartment is a basement apartment with windows. Because it is in the basement it stays very cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
NOTE: we now have a very nice little dog named Skye, who is a gentle and friendly Shiba Inu. He hangs out with us when we're home and stays locked in his crate when we are out of the house.
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 however, 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.
Great location - perfect for exploring Brooklyn and Manhattan! Georgia and Ben made it easy to check in, and made sure we had everything we needed. Really great suggestions for good places to eat and drink around the neighbourhood.
The conversation with Giorgia and Ben was brilliant and the location was perfect. It must be amazing, to relax in the backyard in summer.
In winter, as a basement appartement, it was still cool and also humid.
The shower was great and warm.
Ben and Giorgia provide a nice and cosy apartment in an excellent location. The Williamsburg neighbourhood is very nice, and there are lots of good options to have breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks. Especially the recommendations made by Ben and Giorgia were worthy to visit. Their apartment is really close to the L train which takes you to Manhattan in a few minutes.
Ben and Giorgia were excellent hosts. They made us feel very welcome and made sure we had everything we needed for a pleasant stay (towels, etc...). Furthermore, the location couldn't be much more convenient as a base for the exploration of NYC.
Giorgia and Benjamin are perfect hosts! They made everything to make our living in their apartment as comfortable as possible. They have everything you need visiting New York.
They were out of the city, when we arrived, but Benjamin sent us welcome video with all information about the place.
And the additional benefit of their place is Sky! Sky is a very nice dog!
I was busy, so didn't get to spend a lot of time with Giorgia and Benjamin, however, they were friendly and made sure that everything was arranged to make my stay as convenient as possible.
The location is excellent - you are right by the L train (which takes you in to central Manhattan in just a few minutes).
It was exactly what my friend and I needed for our quick trip to NYC. Very clean and cozy, easy to find, and close to the subway. Ben and Giorgia were very nice and welcoming, and they gave us some good suggestions for places to eat and grab drinks. I wish I could have had a chance to utilize the outdoor area bc it was really cool and spacious, but we were out most of the time. I definitely recommend this place.
