After living in many different countries, I know what is like to look for a place in a foreign city -not a great process. Hence, I decided to become a host to those who are exploring the world, just like I used to, and help to ease the stress of looking for a temporary home.
This is a bedroom in a renovated 2 bed apartment. Rooms are in opposite sides so you will have the privacy you need. Plus, I'm rarely at home so basically, you are renting your own place.
If you are looking for MORE space and privacy, you may book the full apartment (my room will be locked) - please let me know if this is something you are interested.
Unbeatable Location in North Williamsburg, LITERALLY 1 minute from Bedford Ave, ONE block from the Subway (1 subway stop away from Manhattan!), 3 blocks from McCarren Park.
Seriously, the location is incredible.
- Tons of natural light (not common in NY)
- New comfy, double sized mattress, sheets and duvet
- Allergy & bed bug protector (very important)
- HUGE closet
- Blinds and curtains
- Hardwood floor throughout
- Clean bathroom
- Cute kitchen, fully stocked
- Dining table
- Not that you came to NY to spend your nights in, but just in case, I've got tons of DVDs and Netflix for those lazy nights
Building & Neighborhood
- I am on 2nd floor -one floor up from the ground.
- Laundry, Dry cleaner, Duane Reade, Supermarkets, Yoga, Gym, Banks, Natural Food Stores, Post Office, Mani/Pedi, AMAZING Restaurants and cool bars. ALL within walking distance
- Building is in a residential street so you will have a good sleep
If this sounds like too good to be true is because IT IS good. No shady location, no 5th floor walk-up, no tricks. What you read and see is what you will get.
Please let me know if you have any questions. I'm happy to share more information if needed.
1. NY is lovely but its streets are dirty.
In order to keep the place clean and allergy-free, kindly take off your shoes once you step in the apartment.
2. No smoking or drugs
3. Overnight guests will be subject to a $20 fee
I take time and effort to keep this place peaceful and serene, hopefully you will respect that.
Mariana was a great host, very welcoming. The room is clean and cosy, and the location just off Bedford Av is ideal! Really enjoyed my time here, thanks Mariana!
Brilliantly located pied-a-terre for getting the best out of Williamsburg, couldn't be better located. The room and apartment was clean and tidy and Mariana was very quick to get beck to me with any logistical queries I had. Would definitely recommend.
It was very nice to stay at Mariana's Place. The room was very clean and it was very quiet the most of the time. I stayed 4 weeks at her place and I always felt very comfortable! I can only recommend it!
I just spent an entire month at Mariana's place, and the only thing I can say is that there's no lie in her description of the room and neighborhood!
What you read is exactly what you get: a very comfy bedroom in a lovely apartment, in the heart of one of the most attractive and alive districts of NYC: Williamsburg, BK.
The place (bedroom, bathroom and entire apartment) is really cool, nothing to be disappointed of. (Well, if you're not a city dweller, you may be surprised and disturbed by the fact that the streets are very illuminated. I mean there's light in the room, even at night. If this disturbs you, you may have to wear those things they give you in the plane to sleep aha, but believe me: during the day, natural light is so cool!). As Mariana also wrote, her room and yours are on opposite sides of the apartment (plus she is rarely home!) so you get the privacy you need, what's very cool.
You have everything you need just downstairs: large choice of restaurants - no matter what your favorite type of food is, plenty of underground concert venues if you love music, art galleries and colours on the walls if you're more into graphics, lots of different stores for y'all serial window shoppers aha, plus laundry services and all that.
The L train is just 2 steps away from Mariana's door, and it will only take you something like 10 minutes to get to Union Square and on 14th street in Manhattan.
Mariana works a lot but she will make her most and best to please and help you.
Ah, another detail is that she also speaks spanish, what really helped me as I wasn't that fluent in english!
I really enjoyed my stay there and will try to return asap. I would recommend Mariana's place, no doubt.
I lived 8 weeks in the Mariana's flat. I spent a great time in her accomodation, the room is very light and confortable. Mariana is very kind person and helpful.The neighborhood is very nice and safety. This place is wonderful and the advantage it is very close of manhattan. I advice you.
J'ai habité 8 semaines dans l'appartement de Mariana. J'ai vraiment passé un bon moment dans son logement, la chambre est très clair et confortable. Mariana est vraiment gentille et serviable. Le quartier est vraiment bien et sécurisé. Cette endroit est extraordinaire et l'avantage c'est très près de manhattan. Je vous le conseil.
Mariana's apartment is conveniently located, one block from the "L" that gets you into Manhattan in 5 minutes. It is in the heart of Williamsburg, less than 1/2 block from the many stores and eateries on Bedford St.
The bed is comfortable, and apartment very clean. Bathroom is the only downside, small and shower a bit funky.
Mariana is very responsive and easy to make arrangements with. We enjoyed our stay tremendously!
Mariana's place was super cute and the best location. Warm and cozy and everything you would want! Would be happy to stay again!
I lived in Venezuela, Canada and France prior landing in the U.S.
Does that say how much I Iove learning about different cultures and languages? :)
I work in Advertising and like design, music, fashion and healthy lifestyles. LOVE dogs but don't have the time to have one, unfortunately :(
