Our apartment is located in Greenpoint, a safe and beautiful neighborhood in Brooklyn. Just few minutes walk and you'll be surrounded by restaurants, shops, cafes, etc ... The beautiful India st Pier is only one block away and it offers one of the most breathtaking views of the city.
Available from the Pier is also the East River ferry that in few minutes will take you to Manhattan (34th st). Cost of the ferry is $ 4 for a ride, but it's well worth it.

We are also on a 10 minutes walk from the G train (Greenpoint Ave).


About the PARKING: parking in the street is free. During the weekend and at night it's usually easy to find a spot, while during daytime on weekdays it might get slightly harder. Please understand that we don't have a private garage so we cannot assure you that you'll find parking right in front of the apartment as soon as you arrive. Sometimes you might have to drive a few times around the block.

  • Well appointed and sparkly new 2br in my favorite Brooklyn neighborhood. Cecelia was great getting us keys and being quick to respond to questions. Thanks so much Cecelia for having us while we renovate!

  • Cecilia and her place were amazing. She waited for us with the key while we braved New York City rush hour traffic. The apartment was a great space and she was very welcoming of our 2 year old daughter and even provided us with a crib. Location couldn't be bettered. If you're a foodie, tons of 3rd wave coffee shops, plus loads of hot restaurants. We can't wait to revisit!

  • Both the host and the apartment were just brilliant! This was our first time using the website and we have been extremely impressed.
    Cecilia was fantastic at communicating and the apartment was just as described and spotless. Having a nice comfortable place to stay during our visit really added to our holiday and we are glad we ventured onto airbnb.
    Cecilia and her property have set a very high standard and expectation for us regarding quality of service and property.
    We would definitely request the apartment on consequent trips to NY if available.

  • This apartment is great. It's spacious, well designed, and very comfortable (our party was two couples). We loved the location in Greenpoint as we were most interested in exploring Brooklyn, so it didn't matter that it took a bit longer to get downtown. We also loved the open, airy feeling of the neighborhood given its close proximity to the water. There are a few great restaurants and clubs nearby--particularly the restaurant River Styx one block away near the water.

    Cecilia is extremely detail oriented and responded very promptly to my questions via text. Thanks for everything, Cecilia!

  • When my wife and I stayed at Celia's beautiful apartment for 5 nights in August 2013 we said we'd be back. I recently came back on my own and certainly wasn't disappointed. Everything in the flat still looks new and it is as immaculately clean and comfortable as it was last year. This time I was fortunate to have charming Cecilia greet me when I arrived.

    Though the apartment hasn't changed, Greenpoint has. I was surprised at the number of excellent restaurants and cafes that have opened in the past 9 months. However, Greenpoint remains a quiet and laid back neighbourhood. I hope to come back again and would definitely stay at Cecilia's place.

  • This apartment is even more beautiful, chic and clean than the photos! The renovation and decorating are brand new and spacious. It is in a cool trendy neighborhood close to many shops, bakeries, restaurants and bars. We loved every minute and we'd hope to stay there again. The host is very easy to contact and responds quickly.

  • Annonce fidèle à la réalité, l'appartement de Cécilia est idéalement situé et très confortable. En plus de cela Cécilia est une très bonne hôte, à l'écoute et disponible pour que nous passions le meilleur séjour possible. Je recommande cette location.

  • Cecilia's place is perfect! Completely renovated and spotless clean. The area is really quiet, you don't feel like you are minutes away from Manhattan. The only downside is that you are precisely not downtown and the nearest G train doesnt run very often (every 20 min maybe). We often came back with a cab ride as a result. I would highly recommend this place!

  • Lägenheten var fin och låg i ett lugnt område! Rent och (website hidden) är en familj på 5 personer och vi fick plats bra. Det var nära till mataffärer, frukostställen och relativt nära tunnelbanan. Går man ner till vattnet (ca 50 m) syns Manhattan. Tyvärr gick inte färjan just när vi var där. Enda nackdelen var att det var väldigt lyhört, så grannarna hördes tydligt tyvärr.
    Men som helhet skulle vi absolut rekommendera andra att hyra lägenheten.

  • Great apartment, great location, and a responsive and gracious host - we had a great week in Greenpoint and NYC, and I would not hesitate to stay with Cecilia again. Highly recommended!
