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 accommodating and professional in making my stay at "La Hacienda" comfortable! The apartments located in the still great UN-gentrified area of Williamsburg. Could not have closer access to the J/M. Easy access throughout Brooklyn and into Manhattan.
Lejligheden ser ud som på billederne, dog en smule mere slidt end på billederne, men alt i alt var den indrettet super godt og der var hvad man skal bruge.
Desværre var lejligheden ikke klar til aftalt tid og Grahams ven brugte noget tid på at ordne praktiske ting efter vi var ankommet (sengetøj, nøgler og let rengøring). Desværre var denne rengøring absolut ikke ordenlig. Så efter ankomst brugte vi over en times (email hidden) rent så vi synes vi kunne holde (email hidden) der (vi fandt fx afklippede tånegle og lignende gennem opholdet). Så renligheden som på billederne holder desværre på ingen måder. Vi rettede henvendelse til Graham (email hidden) os om dette, men han har desværre ikke svaret.
Dog var Grahams assistent flink til at hjælpe (email hidden) os et strygejern og hente toiletpapir for os (der var to ruller ved ankomst)
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 'La Hacienda' - the flat is a good size, good amenities and it's amazingly well situated, seconds from a Subway station to get into Manhatten and around, as well as close to nearby grocery stores for essentials.
Graham was a great host, really attentive to answering our questions prior to the stay and really efficient at check-in. We were travelling on business so didn't need his services as a host/guide other than that, but he was more than happy to volunteer his help if we needed it, but stayed out of the way when we didn't!
Graham was fast and helpful with his responses, very easy to contact, as well as his apartment-assistant Alex.
The apartment is good and well equipped, very satisfactory, and it has a homely feel to it. The apartment wasn't clean as it should have been, but this was not a very big deal. Sorted it out with Alex.
There were enough towels. We stayed here with three persons for an entire week. Slept well.
The location of the apartment is good, most importantly because of it's location right next to the subway station, which takes you into Manhattan very quickly. The neighborhood is ok. Moto is a fun and convenient place to have dinner. Shops for groceries can be found just outside. Places for having breakfast are "Knife" and "Bageltaria", resp. 5 and 10 min walks from the apartment.
We had such a great time at graham's. We were 4 people - The apartment is perfect. Clean, spacious and has everything you need for a quick weekend. Location location location! The host is friendly, helpful and really easy to contact. You can't be wrong by renting this appartment!
What a fantastic apartment! The bedrooms were clean and spacious, the living area and kitchen were ideal and the area was perfect! You're a 30 second walk away from the M or J train that takes you strait to manhattan in 10 minutes. Graham was a great host, making sure we settled in ok and replied instantly to any query I had while I was out there. I totally recommend this apartment and look forward to staying there again next time I'm in NYC.
Great apartment! Very spacious and equipped with anything you could possibly need. Quick and easy to get across to Manhattan too. We stayed for 2 weeks and didn't want to leave, it started to feel like home. Also there is an amazing Disney movie collection!

I've lived in Williamsburg and the Lower East Side (Brooklyn and NYC respectively) for 10 years. I do visual effects for commercials and television and also curate art exhibitions. I love people and enjoy making new friends.
