About this listing

Want a real Brooklyn experience just minutes away from all the big city attractions?! Join me at my beautiful loft in prime East Williamsburg!

The space

*Please read the entire description before inquiring.

The common space is huge, bright, with high ceilings and shiny hardwood floors. Note: The layout has slightly changed from the profile picture with the common area now having a platform for extra hangout space and the creative touch that these buildings are known for. It is a temporary structure NOT in the picture.

To be clear, I've lived here more than 12 years and this is NOT a new apartment. There may by small areas of work and storage since the apartment is lived in, and the building itself is a converted warehouse from the 1940s so things are always changing.

The rooms themselves are newly renovated for easy cleaning, with new furniture and a full sized lofted ikea bed that sleeps two, giving you total floor space away from the clothes rack and lounge. There are room heaters and fans for your comfort, as well as a brand new air conditioner for the entire space. Spacious, creative, and unique, this room is perfect for temporary stays.

The apartment is usually pretty calm and quiet, but the building itself is large, always changing, and full of life with occasional parties and repairs. There's no regular cigarette smoking in the apartment but a completely quiet or smoke free night CANNOT be promised, especially on weekends. With that said if you have asthma, allergies, mind smoke of all kinds, this listing is not for you. LGBTQ and 420 friendly of course;)


To be even more clear, this IS NOT an "Entire Home" listing. There are three rooms total with a shared common area, kitchen, and bathroom.

Guest access

There are two coffee shops and bars just steps away as well as 24 hour health food stores, bars and food by both train stops.

Feel free to help yourself to use of the living room, kitchen, the fridge, and the two SHARED BnB shelves I've assigned that have:
1. Coffee, snacks, granola, pasta, etc.
2. First aid, band aids, iron, hairdryer, etc.

As my house guests I'll provide you with clean towels, soap, and fresh bedding. There's also affordable laundry in the building with elevator access to the machines if needed. You're just expected to lock apartment door when coming and going as well as be respectful of my space.

Interaction with guests

I am totally available to mingle, outgoing, and happy to have every guests, but am also extremely busy. Often with health appointments, recently remodeling, and keeping the apartment in order, I am always on the go as I'm sure you will be too. So don't expect to literally be shown around the city by me, I can't make any promises especially with shorter stays.
I also don't like answering a bunch of personal questions about me, my rent, etc., just make yourself at home, ask me anything about the city and I'll try my best to point you in the right direction.

There are also my 2 VERY friendly female sister cats and a turtle who reside in the common area only. They are not allowed in bedrooms

Other things to note

Please don't just stay with me to save money and make sure to read this entire post. I love my apartment and goal is to continue to share it with people who are as well excited about the space and the experience. If you are unhappy with your stay for any reasons Ive already listed I will stick to my strict cancellation policy

*This is a very laid back environment and is NOT ideal for many older people and definitely NOT appropriate for children. Laid back, flexible, adventurers are ideal. If you like things like camping and hostels, you'll love it here! It's ALSO NOT an ideal place for a romantic getaway. Each room is private but it's a shared loft with me and possibly other guests.

With all that said, if you want to stay with me there's usually no need to contact a bunch of other hosts! If your days are available just have a profile picture, be between 21 and 45ish years of age, and send me a quick greeting about you and your stay. I'll get back to you ASAP

Please also speak enough English to be able to clearly communicate with me once you're here. There's nothing worst for me than not knowing if basic info and rules are being understood.

*My nightly price is already discounted so I don't have set long term prices listed but am not opposed to long term discounts

Nice place, conveniently located. Adorable cats. Host was friendly. Bed a little wobbly but definitely a great place for staying at New York.

Good price, good room, not for light sleepers as you hear all the noises from the building's corridors, or for people with claustrophobia as there is no window in the rooms. (Industrial building converted into flats I believe) Other than that very charming loft, super friendly kittys, really cool area near the hip and organic supermarkets and caffes, a couple of vintage shops around but not directly in the movement of Williamsburg, so it's a good balance between residencial and lively. Kevonne was very nice and helpful, although she's not invasive at all. I had space on the shelves and in the fridge to put some of my food away. House rules are written everywhere in the house which helps you keep it clean and comfy for everybody! Rooms contains what's necessary to sleep and to put your clothes away. Very close to two L train stops, and 7 mins walking from Flushing ave on the J and M stops, so easy to get to places and to come back to. Overal very nice stay, thank youuuu!

Clean and comfortable appartment that is close to the subway. An awesome doughnuts shop and diner just around the corner as well.

Host and cats are nice. Location is ideal for drink and chill. I enjoyed famous Pizza restaurant and coffee shop. Wifi is not stable and little bit dusty.

That's how the world should work... order and rules must be in a chill atmosphere :) Kevonne is great and for sure will visit her again next time in NY. Thank you.

Place is close to metro, neighborhood is OK. Apartment is darker than the picture, room looks exactly as the picture. Overall place is OK and fairly clean. We had to leave earlier and we only stay one night. As its described, is a bit noicy so if you are a light sleeper it won't be good for you. My husband is tall so the bed was a bit uncomfortable but that's a personal choice.
