The Space

Newly rennovated apartment in a great neighborhood in Williamsburg. Fully furnished. Large rooms. Nice comfortable queen sized beds. Nice new wood floors, high celings, some exposed brick walls, lots of windows, light. Lovely bathroom. Wifi (website hidden) & Xbox. This is not a basement apartment!

Guest Access

You can hang out anywhere in the apartment except our bedroom. The rooftop also offers stunning views of manhattan and is always open. You're welcome to use our fridge, cupboards, oven & stove and all of our cooking utensils as well as the TV and playstation and Netflix etc.

Interaction with Guests

We both work away from home all day during the week and we are fairly quiet when we are home although we do like an occasional quiet drink. We are very respectful and clean but we also like to interact with our guests and we often end up going out and enjoying NY together, as we are new to and excited about being in the city.

The Neighborhood

Nice safe neighborhood, great location:

1 block to Hewes St. Station (J & M trains)
2 blocks to Marcy Ave Station (J,M,Z trains)
3 Blocks to Broadway Station (G Train)
6 blocks to Metropolitan Ave/Lorimer St (L & G trains)
7 minutes walk to Bedford Ave (L train, bars, fun, everything!)

Just ask and we'll be happy to show you around and give any recommendations for whatever you need.

Getting Around

1 block to Hewes St. Station (J & M trains)
2 blocks to Marcy Ave Station (J,M,Z trains)
3 Blocks to Broadway Station (G Train)
6 blocks to Metropolitan Ave/Lorimer St (L & G trains)
7 minutes walk to Bedford Ave (L train, bars, fun, everything!)

Taxi stand right around the corner on Broadway

You would be hard pressed to find a more convenient location! NY is literally at your doorstep with the amount of public transportation in our area (though the area somehow manages to maintain a relaxed, family oriented environment)

Other Things to Note

Our rescue dog Kora has a kidney problem and can only eat certain foods. Please do not feed the dog and please don't leave any medications lying around within her reach, even behind closed doors.

House Rules

Hello! We look forward to having you in our home :)

We just ask a few simple things from you to help keep the home nice to live for everybody.

1. Please wash dishes after you use them, will help keep a mess from happening and will allow other guests to use the sink/stove.

2. Please clean the stove if you leave it dirty

3. Try to keep rooms relatively tidy and free of food scraps. We don't have roaches or rats and we would like to keep it that way!

4. We have a very friendly but curious and playful dog. We ask guests to please be careful of what they leave around the common living spaces. Please pay special attention NOT to leave any medication within her reach, even if its behind closed doors (she can open doors sometimes!). We have had a couple of close calls with her in the past.

5. After using the shower or bath please don't leave your soaps, shampoos etc. in the shower. You are welcome to leave them in the shelves in the bathroom. Please also use the fan in our wonderful bathroom when taking a shower :-p

6. We always restock the toilet paper in the bathroom and change lightbulbs if they go out. Please just let us know if anything is out of order and we will fix it as quickly as we can.

7. No smoking cigarettes inside.

8. Please keep your room's door and the bathroom's door closed (and locked, we will show you how) when you aren't in them. We try to keep our puppy out of tenants rooms but she is very curious... And the bathroom as she sometimes confused the toilet bowl for her food bowl.

9. Please communicate with us if you have any issues with anything. There are rarely problems but if something is wrong we will do everything we can to fix it so you are happy.

Auckland, New Zealand · Member since January 2013

I'm an electronic music producer from NZ living with my girlfriend from San Francisco in a 3 bedroom apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. We are both pretty chilled out, don't take ourselves too seriously and we are easy to get along with, though we are fairly organised and professional. When I'm not in Bushwick at our recording studio I'm usually at home working, relaxing, watching tv, sleeping or having a beer :-p We love music, art, food, movies and the outdoors and we are both in our mid 20s. Any questions just ask! P.S we are looking for roommates this year an long term guests only please and thank you.

We have a very friendly 2 year old labrador mix. Please don't apply for a reservation if you don't like dogs (we have had a few bad experiences)!
