The Space

Hello, traveler(s)!

Thank you for visiting our listing. Please look through our photos, and read our entire listing before sending us a message. While we receive many inquiries daily, we are certainly happy to clarify anything we may have missed.

Now, for the details -
We have a private area with a futon, available in our 1BR apartment. Said area is walled in on 3.5 sides, with a privacy curtain completing the 4th. The futon is tucked away at the back of the loft, completely out of sight from anything happening downstairs. The apartment is split-level, and the entire upstairs would be yours to use.

Also in the loft, is a TV with DVD player, a dresser for storing clothing, a locker with a key for storing valuables, fan, alarm clock, hair dryer, and luggage rack. Additionally, there's a small amount of space available for hanging clothing, and stowing backpacks or suitcases. Clean sheets, blankets, towels, and pillows are provided for all guests. The futon pulls out into a full sized bed, and there is a memory foam topper.

The shared space in the apartment features 16' ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, a 42" HDTV with Roku for TV, and movie streaming, comfy sectional couch, breakfast bar, central heat/air, and a furnished balcony.

We welcome you to share our fully equipped kitchen, with stainless appliances, granite countertops, a coffee maker, toaster, and a microwave.

We are a green household. As such, we ask that you please help us in our efforts by consistently recycling, and being conscious of water and energy consumption. We have designated recycling bins, and the recyling leaflet upstairs should answer any questions regarding what is recyclable, and what isn't.

We're a couple in our late 20s, employed in creative fields. Lauren and I work during the week, M-TH, (and usually need to be in and out of the bathroom from about 7:45 - 9:45am). On Fridays, Lauren works from home. As such, we ask that guests make a plan for their day, and be out exploring, from 10AM to 5PM. Upstairs, we've left a printed copy of our Airbnb guidebook, which highlights some of the many terrific bars, shops, and restaurants in the area.

We're conveniently located off the Montrose L stop, providing quick access to both Central Williamsburg, and the "Morgantown" area of East Williamsburg. The walk from the train stop to the apartment is about 3-5 minutes, depending on how fast you walk. There are many local cafés, our world famous restaurants (Roberta's Pizza), and an array of bars, boutiques, and vintage clothing stores to explore. We're a 20 min walk from Williamsburg's McCarren Park, and Farmers Market. 15 minutes on the L train puts you in Union Square; Manhattan. Directly beneath us is a 24 hour deli. On street parking is free, and is generally easy to obtain.

The building is a walkup, we are on the second floor, and there is roof access, affording views of the Manhattan skyline. A laundromat is available a block and a half away, but we don't have a washer, or dryer on site. Our 3 cats also live with us in the apartment. It's essential that you don't have allergies, or aversions to cats.

Guests will be furnished with one key. Please do not ask for additional keys. We have learned from experience, that guests who plan to come and go separately from one another, are not good matches for us as hosts.

We are a non-smoking apartment. We kindly ask that you please smoke while you're out exploring.

Please bear in mind; this is our home, it is not a hotel. It's very helpful to keep an open line of communication from beginning to end. While we're welcoming of all guests, our ideal matches are those who are coming to NY to explore the many attractions the city has to offer.

Check in is at 3pm, and check out is 12 noon. If you need to make alternate arrangements, please let us know beforehand, and we will make every effort to accommodate.

  • C'est un petit havre de paix, qui nous à fait apprécier encore plus notre viré sur New-york. Un superbe loft avec tout le confort, ainsi qu'un accueil au petit soin.

  • Nellie and Lauren were great hosts! Their apartment was really lovely: bright, clean and beautifully furnished. The hosts themselves were very welcoming and accommodating, even working around me when I disrupted their morning routine, which was very nice of them. The location was also great - a few minutes walk to the Montrose Avenue subway stop and then just a short trip away from Manhattan on the L train, and just a few stops from Bedford Avenue. There were also a couple of nice cafes in the area near the apartment. I loved their three very friendly cats - Missy was definitely my favourite!

  • Nellie and Lauren were very kind and helpful. Everything was very clean. The futon was as comfortable as a bed. Perfect location to visit Manhattan. And the cats were lovely and respectful.

  • My friend and I stayed with Nellie & Lauren and had a lovely experience! Their cozy apartment is just as aesthetically pleasing, welcoming, and clean as the photos! It was well-located with very easy access to an L-train subway station so getting around was not a problem! Nellie and Lauren are extremely helpful and informative and provide a great little guide to help you pick some local spots to check out and enjoy. The cats were just as sweet :)
    Make no mistake, this is the best spot in Brooklyn.

    Thank you for a great stay!
