The Space

Small private room ideal for 1-2 travelers in beautiful designer loft in great Greenpoint neighborhood. The room is simple--just a bed, shelves and clothes rack--clean and private. There is a huge skylight which makes this room extra airy and bright.

As of July 1st 2013 there is an air conditioner in the room. This keeps the room significantly cooler in the summer.

Loft has lots of luxurious amenities--modern kitchen, full bath with clawfoot tub, washer dryer, wireless, huge common area, huge dining table.

Bed is a comfortable real bed for 1 or 2 people.

Pets--there is currently a toy poodle living here now and also a Mexican Black King Snake--a very harmless, non venomous pet snake who stays in his tank. Hopefully you will like to meet them!

If you inquire, please write and tell us a little bit about yourself and what your plans are while you are in New York.

If you do not see your exact dates available, please inquire! I have several very similar rooms and might be able to help you find a great place.

Also, please note check in and check out times. I prefer to keep all check ins between 3 p.m. and 10 p.m. If you plan to arrive before or after this time, be sure to discuss this with me before making the reservation. Check out must be by noon of the day of departure, though usually it is no problem to arrange to store bags outside the room for a few hours.

Since I have been asked before: I am most definitely LGBTQ friendly!

I have a pet king snake who lives in a tank in the loft. He is a really lovely and harmless pet, but I do want to mention him so you'll look forward to meeting him on your visit! There is also a toy poodle and a cat living here now.

  • We had an awesome time at Aryn's Place. The Loft is beautiful, super clean and Aryn is very helpful and always available in case of questions. Greenpoint has all you need, good restaurants, just a quick walk away from Williamsburg and a good connection to Manhattan via Subway and Ferry.

  • Great location in Brooklyn, very handy for getting around and seeing New York. Lots of hipster cafes and bars close by and a nice jaunt down to Greenpoint. The loft was nice and cosy considering how cold it was outside! Also only a short stroll to the waterfront for a fantastic view of Manhattan!

  • We had a nice stay at Aryn's. The room was clean and Aryn was a great host. Greenpoint is a nice neighborhood and you are in Manhattan in around twenty minutes. We had a good time and can recommend Aryn's loft.

  • Love the whole experience even if it was for a short period of time!
    Will recommend it to anyone who wants a real Brooklyn experience.

  • Which successful visit to New York. fantastically and affordable accommodation with Aryn in Brooklynn, thanks. Clean and cozy. Nice area and close to the subway. Recommend a visit to New York and Aryn.

  • We loved Aryn's place. The loft was really beautiful and interesting. Aryn and Roin were great hosts and made us feel at home. The location is excellent, with many bars and cafes within walking distance. We were able to travel to manhattan daily via the subway which was an easy walk from the apartment. A very clean, comfortable and interesting place. Would happily stay again.

  • Aryn (and, by proxy, Roin) were awesome hosts! The loft is a really cool space and in a great location distance-wise to Manhattan. Roin was very warm and chill and had lots of suggestions to help our week go by smoothly. Even though Aryn was out of the country, she responded to my emails in a very timely manner. Also, we fell head over heels in love with Lloyd, the loft pup!

    The only thing I would forewarn out-of-town visitors who might be driving: There is ample street parking, but you must change sides of the street depending on the day. This took me a hot minute to wrap my head around, but once you figure out the system, parking is easy.

    Thanks again for a great week!

  • We had a very nice stay in this loft. It's nearby a metro station (Greenpoint) and you can even take a ferry to Manhattan (30 minutes). Brooklyn is a nice place where you can hang out looking at nice designer's shops or buy in 2nd hand clothes shops. There are plenty of places where to have brunch.

  • Our week at Aryn's loft could not have been more relaxing. Our room was comfortable and clean with an amazing skylight, and even AC for hotter nights. Aryn was a gracious and generous host, always willing to chat and offer advice on local attractions.

    The loft is located in the trendy Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn - well worth exploring if you have the time. Head over to Bedford St and 11th Ave for oodles of boutiques and delicious family-run restaurants.

    We highly recommend Aryn's loft, and getting an unlimited Metropass while you're at it. An easy commute to Manhattan on public transit, and a clean and beautiful place to crash makes this accommodation a winner.

  • Aryn's place was great! Really cool loft with a lot of space. The room we stayed was nice, with high ceilings and comfortable bed. It was a little hot, but there was an AC in the room that did the trick for us. We didn't really stay much in the house, but it was perfect for us to crash.
    We didn't have the chance to meet Aryn, but her roommates were very polite and made us feel comfortable. Aryn also was very fast answering our needs through text message.
    She also has a lovely dog, very easy going.
    I highly recommend her place!

About
I am a digital media artist mostly working in performance art and video. I occasionally also work as a professor teaching courses in one of my disciplines--either literature or digital art. I am a yoga enthusiast. I appreciate design in all aspects of life. I travel a lot so I know how important it is to have a great place to stay. The loft is very spacious, clean, and comfortable with a distinct design sensibility. Designing my loft has been one of my favorite projects! It is truly an oasis in this busy city. Greenpoint is a great neighborhood, and I'm glad to be a part of it. I enjoy sharing what I've learned about the neighborhood and the city with my guests.
