The Space

Light-filled 1BR apartment in a new building. 2nd floor of a 5 story building on a quiet, tree-lined street. There is a terrace which looks out to backyards and I have a giant bathroom (jacuzzi-style bathtub) and really nice, new, well-equipped kitchen (I am a chef:) with dishwasher.

The place is great for a couple or one person. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, so if you need any ideas of where to go or what to do, I can surely help. Especially for restaurants...

The house is 3 blocks from the L and G trains, second stop in Brooklyn (Lorimer St.). It is also close to the JMZ. No smoking in the apartment (though you may on terrace) and please be considerate of neighbors as this is the more chilled, family-oriented part of Williamsburg, although the rest is a short walk away. Possibility of renting bicycle as well. 15 minutes on bike to Union Square in Manhattan.

I hope to hear from you!

  • Tessa's place was a haven for my mother when she came to visit in Williamsburg. It's close to the L/G trains, it's on a quiet side street, and it's got every modern amenity you could hope for. Tessa was a wonderful host and really flexible with check-in/check-out times, key exchanging, etc. Very cool, relaxed place. And the tub! You don't find that in many apartments in North Brooklyn :-)

  • Tessa's apartment is just great! Perfectly located near L and G subway lines, so you can be in downtown Manhattan in about 15 minutes. The neighborhood is so peaceful and friendly, with lots of cool bars and restaurants to discover. The apartment is fully equipped and really quiet, which we appreciated after a busy day visiting Manhattan. Also Tessa was a great host, very helpful and always attentive. We would definitely recommend her place!

  • Tessa and her apt were both lovely. Located near the subway and great music venues and cool cafes. She even provided coffee and milk. Great area and great host.

  • I had a great time staying at Tessa's apartment in Wburg! She was super nice and helpful, and was flexible in terms of timing so that I could meet her to pick up keys as soon as I got to NYC (early in the morning, I took a redeye from the West Coast). Her apartment is really cute and perfect for a solo traveler or a couple - nice sitting/living area, queen bed, huge beautiful bathroom (with great shower), and a compact but equipped kitchen. The location is super convenient -- very close to the L train, which provides easy access to the Village and Union Sq. in Manhattan. I would definitely stay here again!

  • Not only is the apartment lovely, so is the host. Tessa is so warm and welcoming and chill. We loved our stay at her place, it had all the amenities we is super cute and modern, bathroom is HUGE and fancy with two sinks, the location is ideal with so much within walking distance, and parking was easy as well. Couldn't have asked for more. Thanks so much, Tessa!

  • What a great experience we had staying here! We lived in NYC years ago, but had never explored Williamsburg. Loved it! And Tessa's apartment was the perfect home base. Comfy bed, big bathroom, quiet neighbors, great location ... what more could you want? And Tessa was so welcoming! She even emailed us a huge list of places to check out. Next time we go back to New York, we're heading straight for Tessa's!

  • Tessa was a wonderful host. Her home is warm and inviting and exactly as represented on this site. We loved coming home every night and sitting on the terrace enjoying a cup of tea in the morning. It is in a wonderful location very close to the L train which provides direct service (2 stops) to the city. She provided us with a list of restaurant and bar recommendations and was more than happy to help us with any help or other suggestions we needed. I would love the chance to stay with Tessa again! :)

  • This was my first experience with Airbnb and I feel fortunate to have been so lucky. Staying at Tessa's was perfect. She has a very nice, comfy apartment -- I immediately felt right at home! The location is great -- very close to the L and near lots of cafes and restaurants and other things to explore. Tessa herself is very nice and a great host. I highly recommend staying here!

  • Tessa's place was lovely and just what we were looking for. The apartment itself was a great size for couples or singles alike. She was very hospitable with suggestions of local places to go and eggs for breakfast. The location was great, too - just a block or two away from the L train. Overall, it was spot on.

  • Tessa's place was lovely, bright, well furnished and clean. Tessa met us when we arrived and gave us the key and gave us a drink and a tasty snack which was very appreciated. She gave us a good list of reccomendations for the area and further a field. We were lucky enough to get some great weather and really enjoyed having a beer on the balcony after a long day of walking. All in all a great place to explore williamsburg and NYC from- loved it and would love to do it all again- Amy and Bob
