Location, location, location. That's the emphasis in Christelle's description of her studio apt and it is absolutely on the mark for this most charming spot alongside the Williamsburg Bridge. It's within three blocks of five great restaurants, and less than ten minutes from another dozen good eating spots, the indispensable Nitehawk Cinema, many delightful neighborhood shops, and the M train for a short, elevated subway ride to Manhattan. The L train stop is a longer, scenic stroll of 12-15 mins that takes you along the burgeoning Bedford Ave commercial hub of North Williamsburg.
The space itself is a very functional 600 sq ft tastefully appointed and cleverly lit with one of the widest, most comfortable couches you will ever encounter. There are two issues that might sound intimidating but aren't. It's in a basement so there's no natural light. All the more reason when not sleeping (perfect conditions for that, dark & quiet) to get out and enjoy the neighborhood, go up on the roof next door, or even better walk over the bridge. Then there's the bathroom down the hall. Well it almost winds up being private and it's not all that different from walking down the hall in your house. Be bold and make a naked dash in the wee hours. And for all you guys, it has a urinal which I'm missing back home!
My only regret from a six week stay was not seeing Christelle more. Everything works as designed, and she was quick to answer the occasional logistical question I had. She also provided terrific advice on the best food. And when I locked myself out (don't ask) half dressed on a tightly scheduled morning and needed her to run over and let me in, she saved the day.
Williamsburg is a lively & dynamic place. I considered other Airbnb listings, mostly brownstones, in Ft Greene and Bed-Stuy before choosing this comfy cavern for a comparable price. 100% the right call.
the area is cool, the house has so much space.
it helps my design works just living there because i always feel relaxed.
also there is a laundry inside a house so it was very nice.
I loved your photograph id like to sublet again next time i come here again.
My friend and I really liked staying at Christelle's apartment. It was clean, has big windows and there was enough room for both of us. Christelle is really friendly and she gave us great advise about nice bars and restaurants in Williamsburg. A good place to stay!
Christelle was a pleasure to converse with although we didn't actually meet, the whole process was smooth sailing. As she was out of town her assistant met us at the apartment and it was all very well organized. Her apartment was a great space and we loved our stay and are planning another one soon!! Couldn't recommend it enough :)
Christelle's place is absolutely lovely! It's huge, gets tons of natural light, high ceilings and great decor. Christelle is a wonderful host, very friendly and gracious. The apartment was impeccably cleaned before I arrived, with fresh flowers and candles. The neighborhood is really a lot of fun to explore--right at the nexus of hip Williamsburg, the Satmar Hasidic community and a large Latino community. It was a lot of fun to walk around and to see so many different cultures all in just a few blocks. It can be a bit dark and quiet on the streets at night, but I never felt unsafe. Highly recommend staying here!
The reservation was canceled 12 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Christelle was a welcoming and friendly guest. Her studio is a very nice place to stay, clean and confortable. Except the absence of wifi (the host left money to go to a café with internet access) and noisy trains passing by, everything was perfect! We also enjoyed Williamsburg a lot!
We had the most pleasant stay at Christelles Apartment. She was a lovely host and although we didn´t get to meet her in person everything was perfectly arranged. The flat is a perfect place to stay. Would definitely stay there again.
Christelle is the most perfect host! A very warm welcome followed by an introduction to the wonderful place and some surprise treats in the fridge (we loooved it!! Thank you soo much!!) She is always very helpful with recommendations of restaurants (loved the Diner!) and always reachable if you have questions! The apartment has the perfect location - WIlliamsburg has a lot of restaurants and bars nearby and the JMZ line takes you to the Lower Eastside in just one stop! I can only recommend Christelles place and she is a fantastic host!! Thank you!!!
We had a great time staying in this awesome, clean, bright studio space! The location is super handy and Christelle was really easy to deal with, friendly and always contactable.
Thanks Christelle, we'll be back soon!
Christelle and her girlfriend stayed at my condo in Makati Philippines. They were the perfect guests. Clean, friendly, respectful, easy to reach, and they left my place completely spotless. Couldn't ask for more.
These gals were absolutely marvelous and the best, most wonderful and talented folks! They were 5 Star guests and we highly recommend them to anyone. We hope to see them again and would welcome them! Toby and Joe
Christelle is the PERFECT guest! i had the pleasure to host her and her friends in my south beach apartment and since I met her I knew she was a very reliable and respectful person, I would be delighted to see her again!
If you want to live the true Willyburg lifestyle, Christelle's listings are it! The South Williamsburg location is the grown and sexy counterpart to the Northern part of the nabe and offers a quiet respite from the hustle and bustle of Bedford while still remaining a hop skip and jump away from it all. Christelle is also an excellent host, providing wonderfully curated amenities and insider knowledge of the best bars, restaurants, and shops. You won't be disappointed staying here!
Oh I looooove this dreamy place! It's truly hard to find newly renovated apartments with this much space and sunlight. As you can see from the photos, Christelle has an eye for chic design and keeps the place streamlined and spotless. In addition to these aesthetic comforts, Christelle is an amazing host. So friendly, reliable, reachable, and does little things to make people feel at home. A further key factor is that the apartment is in a building with high security, and on a private yet centrally located block. So what I'm saying is this place is MAJOR!
This is a wonderfully located space for any visitor of New York City. You are placed in the fabulous Williamsburg neighborhood which is one stop away from Manhattan! Williamsburg has a great collection of bars, restaurants and shops. Some great spots by this apartment are Diner, the iconic Peter Luger Steakhouse, Rye, Walter Foods, OAK and many more! The home is very cozy, welcoming and clean. In addition to being a great space to stay in, Christelle's design aesthetic gives you a place as hip at the Ace Hotel but for 1/4 of the price, bigger space, kitchen and better location! I would definitely stay here the next time I am visiting New York. Christelle is very sweet and accommodating and I definitely would recommend this place!
this is such a wonderful space :) a nice warm atmosphere, and a nice quit place to escape the craziness of the city. its great for everyone, and it has immediate access to just about everything. aside from location, it's CLEAN!!! and newly renovated which is so rare in this area. and for this price, you really can't beat it. The neighborhood is wonderful, very close to the water and just 10 mins from DT NYC. Christelle takes pride in her home, and you can feel the love! She is a reliable & considerate hostess, and she goes above and beyond to accommodate her guests.
Christelle is awesome. On top of being a very artistic and thoughtful person, she is also extremely reliable and trustworthy. I have had the pleasure of working with her on creative projects and have seen first hand how well she maintains her living spaces. I have no doubt that she will make sure that guests feel safe and comfortable in her home.
