About this listing
Come stay in one of the safest, hippest neighborhoods in NYC! This is a large master bedroom in a two bedroom box-apartment. Lots of light and very private.
A pre-welcome to NYC from Greenpoint –one of the safest, quietest, quaintest, prettiest and most convenient neighborhoods the city has to offer. Five blocks away you have the East River Ferry, which for four dollars will shuttle you directly to Midtown (as well as Williamsburg, Dumbo and Governor’s Island). Three blocks away there’s the G train (three stops to 53rd and Lexington, one stop to Williamsburg –Brooklyn’s cultural/fashionable hub; by foot, a fifteen minute walk away). Greenpoint is also NYC’s film and TV locus. There’s always a movie or series being shot (the Boardwalk Empire set is just six blocks up at the end of Manhattan Avenue).
Your potential room is clean, quiet, private and sunny. It is one of two private rooms - The Master bedroom. It is (for NYC) a large sized bedroom and is equipped with a kingsized memory foam bed. Both the master bedroom and the guest bedroom have windows looking out onto the back courtyard. The nights are extremely quiet. Our apartment is Box as opposed to Railroad, which means each room is well-delineated/not connected in tandem. We’ve also just recently remodeled the entire place: new paint jobs, furniture, floors, stove, etc. The spacious commons is equipped with an excellent sound system and TV/DVD player. The kitchen is spotless and equipped with all cooking essentials. Bathroom, spotless. We have WiFi.
The living room is provided for our guests to hang out or eat in. Preferably no eating in the bedrooms. You can also leave extra luggage in the living room.
We (Maria and myself, Joe) are married. We are quiet and courteous and NYC-busy so not often at home. We are looking for quiet, clean and respectful guests. We’re always excited to meet new people and would be glad to point you in the right direction as far as restaurants, venues, clubs, neighborhoods, etc. goes. If our place sounds/looks right to you, let us know!
Simply be clean (no eating in the bedrooms), respectful, good people.

Really nicePlace!! Convenience for subway and groceries!! Clean and bright!! And Maria is super nice!!
Highly recommended! Maria and Joe are great hosts! The apartment is exactly as described: quiet, clean and cozy! You will feel at home after minutes. Greenpoint is a great location as it is a safe area and it's well connected to downtown and Williamsburg.
Our stay at Maria and Joe's place was very comfortable. Even though they weren't there at the time, they were still really warm and welcoming. They kept in contact with us before and during our stay which was really lovely of them. The apartment is only 2 blocks away from the subway which will take you anywhere you want to go! Greenpoint seemed like a really nice & quiet neighbourhood. Overall we had a really nice stay at Maria and Joe's.
Maria and Joe made their home available for my family during a recent stay and everything went wonderfully. Their apartment was clean and comfortable, and they made my family feel welcome, highly recommend!
Maria and Joe were great at responding to our messages during the reservation process. They were both out of town but they made sure that their friend Gregory was there to meet us. They were very accommodating about our late check-in time. The space was nice and we shared it with another guest. We had our own room and shared the bathroom bathroom. I thought the location was great! It was just 2 blocks from Green Point station (G train) and close to buses.
