I loved my stay at The Joyce! The apartment is impeccably clean and nicely furnished. Farika is a great host -- very welcoming, easy to coordinate with, and respects your privacy / space. I felt right at home and would definitely recommend this location to other travelers!
Their place is really cute and spacious, and includes every amenity. The neighborhood is pretty central and ideal for getting around Williamsburg. The L train is close to their apartment, which I believe gets you to Bushwick and into Manhattan as well. Farika and her girlfriend are friendly and easy-going, well versed in Brooklyn life and know a lot of people which is helpful if you’re looking for a place like I was. They went above and beyond! I highly recommend staying with them.
The Joyce was the perfect place to stay in Brooklyn.
Close to food, transport and nightlife! A lovely clean and cosy room.
Farika Mey & Boo are wonderful hosts, would definitely recommend The Joyce to a friend :)
A very quiet and nice place to stay within walking distance (10 minutes) the fun parts of Williamsburg with all the bars and shops. Also connection to Manhattan with the L-Train. The hosts were very nice and helpful as well, so I'd stay at the Joyce any time again. The bed was also very cozy!
The apartment was great and just what we had expected. The apartment was clean and tidy. The host left plenty of information and a welcome gift as well. We enjoyed it very much.
Estuve en el departamento con Mey y farika cuatro días, y me hicieron sentir como en casa. El departamento es muy lindo, la habitación muy cómoda y limpia. Ellas son unas excelentes anfitrionas.
La ubicación es genial, a pocos minutos de Manhattan y en un barrio muy lindo.
My wife, and small son just spent a week at The Joyce, and our stay could not have been more enjoyable. The apartment is lovely and spacious, while the surrounding neighborhood is packed with restaurants and convenient spots. Farika and Mae made check in/out a breeze even though they were out of town during our trip. The subway is a quick walk away if you're looking to venture into Manhattan or other parts of BK. I highly recommend The Joyce to anyone looking to experience Brooklyn in style, or for a nice retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city.
I stayed with Farika and Mae for 2 nights, and couldn't have been happier or more comfortable! The room was exactly as it appeared in pictures - warm, cozy, quiet, and perfect for one. Farika made the check in process super easy and was friendly, welcoming and answered any questions I had. I had a good (email hidden), and wished I had more time to hang out there. I enjoyed the neighborhood very much. The apartment is close to everything... Coffee shops, markets, bars, and the train. Only 3 stops to Manhattan :). I had a perfect stay and would absolutely stay again. Thank you so much Farika!!
The Joyce is terrific. It's convenient to Manhattan and Williamsburg. The hosts couldn't be more flexible or hospitable, and have created a very welcoming and comfortable environment. I'd absolutely stay again.
great location, quiet room, cute dog, friendly hosts
Farika was a great guest who provided excellent feedback. She's very easy to communicate with and left the apartment in great shape upon check out. I would highly recommend her as a guest or host.
Farika was a great guest! Left the studio very clean and easy to communicate with. Would highly recommend to other hosts and stay at her place if you are in Brooklyn! Very friendly.
The Joyce is an ideal homebase from where to explore Brooklyn and NYC. The location is very convenient, surrounded by everything one would want, cafes, restaurants, bars, and shops. The apartment is beautiful, warm and inviting. I would stay here in a heartbeat! Farika's creative eye is reflected in all the spaces she creates, from her home to her bar, which is a true gem, and my favorite watering hole! Most of all, Farika is a caring, generous, and inspiring person, a friendship I cherish!
The Joyce is choice! Its a totally great place in a secure building in a safe, great neighborhood. My immediate thought was "this place is big!" (for NY.) Its railroad style (?) decorated with nice photos of nature. The bed is comfy with new sheets, a stylish comforter and privacy for the room (I had my own room!) The Joyce guest quarters has a desk/chair with internet throughout the place--there is a fan and a little kind of modern coat rack cupboard thing that had a towel in it and space for my stuff. Its Williamsburg mellow meets chic-y zen, not to mention its clean, pretty and smells nice. There is great light on both ends of the apartment--loved just chillin at the kitchen table or in the living room tapping on my computer. My host was awesome and obviously a really good person;) the neighborhood is perfecto--right in the thick of Williamsburg, cute restaurants, cafes, park, subway, all within a few blocks. I'm coming back for sure!
