I have spent ten years in this neighborhood and love to call it home. There are some great restaurants within a 5 minute walk (my favorite one is just across the street). You are in Williamsburg here, so there are some great bars all around.
You are extremely close to the JMZ and G trains... the L is a walkable 7 minutes away... I often use it if headed into Manhattan at 14th Street. Grand St. and Metropolitan Ave. are along that 7 minute walk to the L train... lots of night life around there... and Bedford is about 12-15 minutes walk... or call a car from the car service down the street. We'll give you their number if you need a car to the airport or anywhere else.
The apartment itself is really nice. It's on the 5th floor. There is an elevator up, but it's slow, so I generally take the stairs down. I love staying here and always sleep well. The beds are comfortable. In the case that you'd have a 5th person, they would sleep on the fold out couch in the living area... it's not the most comfortable, but it works. It might be possible to have two people on that foldout couch (if they don't mind sleeping close). One of the 2 bedrooms has frosted glass in the window for some reason (privacy I guess, not my favorite design idea)... its still a great window for the natural light.
There is a balcony off of the other bedroom. Feel free to smoke out there, but please do not smoke in the apartment. I do ask that you be extremely courteous and respectful to the neighbors and super, I really like them and don't want to disturb them.
This place is a very comfortable to stay when visiting Williamsburg or NYC in general. You'll really like it here.
Interaction with Guests
Our interaction with you is generally minimal, but if you need us we'll be there. =]
There is a train to Manhattan right outside the front door.
Please read all of the rules and ask guests staying with you to read them as well. =]
My friend John will be letting you into the building. Please have a look in the house manual you will receive with the confirmation email for his information and reach out to him about check in / check out times. Please include airline and flight numbers if you are flying (this is very helpful in case of delays).
My number one rule is that the neighbors and super not be disturbed. Please view the house manual for more on this.
Please do not smoke in the apartment.
Do not play loud music after 11pm.
If you break anything, please let me know. I'd much prefer to find out about it from you than figure it out later. Honesty is the most polite policy here and we certainly won't be upset about it. We just want to know.
We will be flexible with you about check in and check out times, so we may need you to be a little flexible about it with the guests that may be at the apt before or after you. We try to make transitions as smooth as possible for everyone.
Please do not lose the key.
So, outside of that, just come and have a great time. You'll really enjoy the room and the neighborhood. Thus far, I've had really great experiences with all of my guests and I'm looking forward to having a similar experience with you.
Graham was very easy to work with, and very accommodating. The apartment was well taken care of, clean and very well-located. The keys were easy to get, and Graham was very easy to get ahold of.
There were 2 couples staying, and the apartment was plenty big enough, and wonderfully accessible to 3 different subway lines. The back balcony was great for sitting out on and having a glass of wine at night. We really enjoyed our stay.
it was all perfect - he communicated well before hand and everything was exactly as we had hoped for - actually it was even much nicer than we expected!
totally recommend this place!
I stayed here with my parents for our week long stay in New York. Location was perfect it was very close to three metro stops and closest Hewes St was under 100m from the appartment and from there only 20mins away from Manhattan. In the area people were very friendly and helpfull. Near to Marcy Av metro stop there was nice area with lot of bars and nice restaurants. Apartment was clean and cozy, especially the balcony was in my parents daily use.
Muy buen lugar, amplio y tranquilo, bien ubicado. Limpieza y equipamiento impecable. Graham y su equipo muy amables, preocupados y atentos y disponibles en todo momemento. Lugar muy recomendable.
The listing was amazing, I would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting New York City. It's well connected to Manhattan, quite large and comfortable.
The host went out of his way to make our stay comfortable. He was always available when required, including an instance of an emergency at 1 am! Everything was clean, well taken care of, with 4 sets of keys, clean sheets, a fully stocked kitchen and comfortable beds.
Overall a fantastic AirBnB experience.
Great apartment, the size and value for NY was tremendous. Beds were very comfortable with good bedding and pillows, bathroom was nice, location was quieter than expected as the apartment is on the back side of the building and the subway (elevated train) is out front. Subway out front was a major plus, so easy to get around, but we also drove to NY and the neighborhood was so easy to park, usually right in front of the building, this was a unexpected surprise for NY. Great restaurants in area and not far from Bedford Street, the main drag in Williamsburg. I would definitely stay here again, Graham's host that welcomed us a check-in was very kind and hospitable.
Sejour très agréable à la hacienda, graham et alex sont très sympa et arrangeant.
l'appart est bien agencé et fonctionnel, la literie est bonne, le petit balcon est bien agréable.
A 2 pas du métro pour se rendre en 2 stations sur Manhattan.
cela nous a permis de découvrir le quartier de williamsburg.
un grand merci a alex et graham.
A une prochaine fois
