The Space

Join us at our beautiful shared duplex in prime East Williamsburg/Bushwick. Located between either the fifth or sixth stops on the L Train from Manhattan, we're only 10-15 minutes from the city! This fast growing community in Brooklyn's industrial district makes for an amazing new, creative sharing environment. Perfect for travelers and with a variety of bars, parties, food and art along the way these lofts are NY at it's best. *Check out the guidebook which I add often, as well as my other listing for more summer availability
*Ask me about discount city attraction and comedy clubs tickets as well!

We have an extra room which is often unoccupied so we like to sublet it every now and then to mingle with travelers and share our space with different parts of the world.

Our common space is huge, bright and the room itself is also a duplex, lofted giving you total floor space away from the bed and lounge area. Cozy, unique and very cute with a full mattress that fits two, you'll definitely enjoy your stay.

There's affordable laundry in the building with elevator access to the machines if needed. The building itself is large and full of life with occasional parties so a completely quiet night cannot be promised especially on weekends.

*Contacting multiple hosts is not necessary if you'd like to stay with us, just have a picture and send a quick greeting with your dates and any questions you may have and I'll get back to you asap

Guest Access

Make yourself at home and feel free to help yourself to use of the living room, kitchen, storing in the fridge, and the two BnB shelves I've assigned that have:
1. Coffee, snacks, granola, pasta, etc.
2. First aid, iron, hairdryer, etc.

I also try to make muffins for the house if I'm home on Sundays, and you're more then welcome to breakfast any day if I am cooking

Interaction with Guests

There are other loft mates but everyone has a private room, ours being on the lower level are seen and unheard from your the dwelling. We are totally available to mingle, outgoing, and friendly but always on the go as I'm sure you will be too. There are also my three very friendly female cats and a turtle who reside in the common area only.

You will be treated as my house guests with towels, soap and fresh bedding provided. You're just expected to lock apartment door when coming and going as well as be respectful of our space and more permanent residents.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Kevonne's place is a really good place to stay. The room is like a hotelroom and then you also have that beautifull loft. The neighbourhood is very creative and fun. And Kevonne is flexible, hospitable and just real nice. There was coffee, cereals, cookies etc for the guests. I very much recommend this place!

  • The Lively Loft was a great place to stay. Kevonne was a gracious and helpful host. The location was very convenient to the L train, either Montrose or Morgan Street Stations. Kevonne was easy to communicate with about arrival time and other things. The upstairs bedroom accommodated my 6'.2" frame and the fan was welcome, though it was pleasant weather in late May/early June. We enjoyed sharing the common area. The neighbourhood was a combination of old factories converted to residential use and functioning industrial areas. It was quiet at night., The shared bathroom facilities proved to be no problem.

  • Kevonne's loft is a great place to base yourself for a short or a long stay in NY. We stayed a week but wish we'd had longer. Very close to the subway and in a safe neighborhood. The cats are sweet, the other housemates are friendly, welcoming and willing to give advice or answer questions if need be. We loved the freedom of staying at Kevonne's and would recommend it to any of our friends. Also great value for money! Towels, soap, hair dryer, maps everything you could think of.. clean and spacious.

    Thanks Kevonne for a great week!

  • Kevonne es una gran anfitriona. Tiene todo preparado para que no te falte nada durante la estadía, realmente sabe lo que hace. El loft es hermoso, amplio y limpio y la habitación que nos tocó era más que cómoda. Queda realmente cerca del subterráneo y conectado con todo. Lo recomiendo totalmente.

  • Kevonne is a charming and helpful host; very reliable, organized and easy going.
    The loft hosts a variety of international guests and is in a safe neighborhood close to the subway. Kevonne had subway maps, towels, soap and even a water bottle ready for visitors.

    It is very good value for the money and ideal for young travelers.

    My only reservation is that the floors were very dirty and the carpet in my room had definitely not been vacuumed for some time. I tend to prefer a cleaner environment. I noticed that the maintenance people in the building were continually spraying and exterminating which is a good thing.

  • Kevonne was such a great host. We had some trouble getting into the city and were late for our check-in, but she was very patient and welcome when we did finally arrive. The neighbourhood is safe and quiet, and the loft is a stone's throw away from the L train to get to Manhattan easily. Her other housemates (and cats!) were so easy to get along with. They gave us great suggestions for what to see and how to get around. The room is very private and quaint, and we always felt welcome to expand out into the main living area - a great space with lots of positive energy. Over-all, we were so glad that we came across this place and these people, and can't wait to visit again!
