The Space

Brand new 3rd floor Apt with hardwood floors off J,M (Flushing stop) & G trains (Myrtle Willoughby) Neighborhood is on border of williamsburg & bushwick & Bedstuy. A light filled room with 3 big windows overlooking back yard(s) with a Temperpedic queen sized bed, lots of plants, & French doors opening to a modern kitchen. Great energy! This room is quiet and you can see the sky and hear birds chirping rather than cars honking:) Other room is occupied by cool female roomate who is a hairstylist & works a lot. Key Foods grocery store across the street, we are above a deli & drycleaners, a liquor store is several doors down. COol bar Project Parlor is 3 blocks down. 8 minute bike ride to Williamsburg bridge. 15 minute subway to lower East Side....conveniently our trains connect to L, 456, NRWQ, ACE, BDFM & JZ trains right in the city (essex st, w4th, Canal) which can take you anywhere easily. Everyone in building is young and cool. WASHER DRYER in basement!

  • Our experience with Sierra and Noelia's apartment was the highlight of our trip. We loved staying in Brooklyn, away from the craziness of Manhattan and in an area that is authentic New York. The apartment was very clean and spacious, and Noelia encouraged us to help ourselves to anything we needed in the place. The room was full of light and we were graciously given a fan to survive the hot summer in New York. The apartment is close to two major subway lines and it was quite easy to get around. Bushwick is a very interesting area and some very unique culture greeted us there! We mainly interacted with Noelia, Sierra's roommate, who was absolutely lovely and we ended up spending some evenings chatting and hanging out with her. She gave us lots of recommendations for restaurants, museums, and the like, and answered any questions we gave her. She was also very quick to reply anytime we texted her or needed help. Overall, the stay was amazing, and we would definitely go back and stay there again when back in the city!

  • Sierra was an amazing host! I (email hidden) with my brother and we had a most comfortable stay. Her place was beautiful and she even left towels for our use! She was always available for any request/question in regards of the apt and was very kind to give us directions to get around the neighborhood and to take the trains. I would absolutely recommend her and her place to future guests! :)

  • Ladies and gentlemen, Sierra Carrere is the best host! The room was exactly as she described. The decorations were beautiful, entire apartment is very clean and she even gave us towels to use. The restroom was clean, no problem whatsoever for us. We had the entire living room area to ourselves, Sierra was barely home. Theres really nothing I could complain about our stay. Although the apartment was located in a more "urban" neighbourhood, once you've stepped through the doors, everything was very polished and safe. We spent 3 nights there and had no trouble at all. Walked about 2-3 blocks to the train station and got to manhattan in about 10 minutes. Sierra was humble, sweet ,and very eclectic. Thank you so much for providing the perfect vacation spot for us Sierra!

  • My trip was great! Sierra greeted me and my girlfriend once we arrived. She has very energetic and upbeat personality that is apparent from the getgo. We loved her place; the apartment had an Eastern, new age type vibe to it that made it very relaxing to return to after running around the city. The bed was incredibly comfortable and sleeps two no problem.

    The apartment was fairly close (10 minute walk max) to subway stops and easy to get to from JFK. You can jump around to the whole city pretty easily from there. Sierra left to stay with some friends that weekend, giving us the place to ourselves for virtually the whole weekend. She also gave us some great recommendations for the surrounding areas and other boroughs for shopping, food and nightlife.

    Great experience and would definitely (email hidden) again for a return trip to NYC.

  • The neighborhood is kind of grimy and intimidating but we embraced it. People were still up and places were open at 3/4 am. The place was lovely! It was very clean, cozy, and beautiful. Sierra and her roommate have very eclectic and artistic styles, the design and decor was fabulous. Sierra left soon after we arrived guaranteeing us privacy and her roommate didnt show up until a couple hours before we left too! Her place is less than 10 minutes from the subway that is only a couple stops away from Chinatown/Little Italy (which we frequented). She also recommended some night scenes which her friend was DJing at. Thanks for the awesome stay. I would recommend this place to my friends and would definitely come back.

  • Sierra's space is full of great energy, we really loved our stay. She had a kind friend greet us and give us a list of where to go which was very helpful. We were close enough to the subway to get around easily and Brooklyn itself is a lot of fun. Sierra made sure we were well taken care of, going above & beyond what was necessary. And a huge plus -- her tempur-pedic bed is a dream to sleep on! Many thanks Sierra!

  • Sierra's apartment was the absolute most pleasant stay in Brooklyn. Her apartment was so beautiful and polished. It was conveniently located right near a train station and bus stop. She was kind enough to let me and my friend borrow her bikes to get to the festival we were in town for.
    Her place was decorated graciously!! Amazing art throughout the space, high ceilings, and comfortable beds.
    Definitely an ideal place to spend great times in ny ;) I give my highest recommendation to Sierra's apartment!
