The Space


I have INSTANT BOOK so there is no need to ask if the place is available. If it is free on the calendar then it is free for booking. Also the price is exactly what comes up when you enter your desired dates. Please don't ask for discounts.

This is a 100% private room with lock and key situated in the heart of Williamsburg. The room is at the front of my Art/Design studio that I share with my Mum.

Inside your room is a kitchenette with microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster. There is a 40 Inch flat screen TV with NETFLIX and WiFi and a fold down couch. My Mum has a living space towards the back of the studio. I have two other Airbnb is this apartment. The bathroom has a shower and toilet and is shared with my mum and other guests. There is a golden retriever that lives with my mum. She very friendly but does not enter the shared space other than to exit for walks.

We are 5 min walk to the Williamsburg Market and East River Ferry and 6 blocks down Bedford ave to the L train. 3 stops to Union Square. You are also 2 mins from the Williamsburg bridge which you can walk or ride across to the Lower East Side. Williamsburg has just been crowned the music and art capital of New York State. If you are younger than 40 and want to get a real taste of New York then this is where you need to be. I am an Australian who has been living here 2 years now and am often over seas which is when i rent out my place. As some one who came initially on a holiday myself I urge you to check this area out even if you don't stay with me. PLEASE NOTE- This is a New York loft in a basement studio. This room is for budget travellers. It is adequate for sleeping 2 people, who plan on spending most of thiere time seeing the sites of New York, not hanging out in their room, Please don't expect a central park penthouse. As it is in the basement, there are no windows.

Every soul must be included in the confirmation. Children and Babies included.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Le quartier est très agréable, on peut y trouver toutes les commodités, avec plein de petits restaurants, cafés, et de petites boutiques. La chambre se trouve à proximité de différentes lignes de métro, ce qui permet de pouvoir se déplacer facilement vers Manhattan.
    June a été très accueillante, très gentille, nous a aidé lorsque nous en avions besoin.
    La chambre est petite, mais bien organisée, convient très bien lorsque l'on vient à New York pour visiter la ville. Les lieux sont bien entretenus par June, tout y est propre.
    Une adresse à garder pour venir passer du temps à New York.
    Merci à June d'avoir été si gentille!

  • We had a wonderful time in NYC and Alice & Vincent studio was exactly what we were looking for! A simple place to crash and have a good night sleep after a long day in the city. June welcomed us very nicely ! We recommend this place !

  • We spent a couple of days at Vicent & Alice´s place. The location was very accesible to NY and the neighborhood was really amaizing, very cool for young people. If we were another time, we definitely stay at Vicent & Alice´s house.

  • Thank you for a great stay!
    Very comfortable and a great location. Small room but that's to be expected given the good price. June was there to meet me and was so friendly and helpful.
    Would definitely stay there again!
    Book ahead because they're busy!!

  • Such a great little fun stay! June is super nice, everything was great! Thank you!

  • June was a fantastic host. The place was, as described, very small and good if you are just looking for a place to sleep. As we were looking at NYC this was ideal. Connections to the city were great. On the day of arrival, we decided that we wanted to stay another night and June made every effort to accommodate us although the room had already been booked. All in all, a very good place to stay at. Go for it!

  • Excellent place, hospitable host, great price, what more could you ask for? Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks June for being such a great host.

    Highly recommended!

  • June was so lovely! We loved her instantly! She was waiting for us at the door when we got in from the airport at 10.30pm!
    It is in the perfect spot in Brooklyn, a quick walk to the train station and just a couple of steps from amazing food and wine on Bedford Ave.
    the place was intimate and cozy. Fine for my husband and I, as we're pretty small people. There were other guests sharing the bathroom but we rarely had to wait and June kept it so clean, if you didn't pass people in the hallway, you wouldn't even realise you are sharing!
    The room is super cozy! Tiny! But all we needed to rest our heads at the end of a busy day of sightseeing in New York!
    It was great to have wifi too!
    Thanks June! We'll be back!!!!

  • Great location and June was very friendly. The space is extremely tight, however, with basically no room to stand. This was not a huge issue for us as we didn't spend much time in our room. The biggest problem for us was the constant noise coming from the adjacent boiler room which made falling asleep difficult. Probably wouldn't stay here again, although the price was right.

    Response from Vincent & Alice:

    We are surprised by your problem with the boiler. We have rented this room for almost two years and you are the first to mention any noise from the boiler, that is behind two concrete walls and a hallway.
