Just booked in New York

Just booked in New York
Location, location, location! Large, classy, timeless, comfortable, entire top floor with private entrance in our private house out of a 1890's novel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn one block from the East River. So easy to get to Manhattan by subway, ferry, cab or even foot, and all the best places in the "Burg" Wifi/cableTV/air/heat. (We stay in our separate floor below you never compromising your privacy!)
Perfect location on the Northside Williamsburg, Brooklyn Waterfront scene, my place is a wood beamed classic, with hard wood floors and restored original brick wall. It is the top floor of a 1894 restored house on a very nice semi residential street block. The nicely outfitted place, "the country in the sky" as I refer to it, has a beautiful totally functional "Peerless" antique prewar stove for cooking, generous amounts of pots, a wood burning fire place and a full size refrigerator in the kitchen. The feelings are cozy, warm, cabin like yet elegant. The kitchen and living room are in the same open area. There is a dining room table that seats 4, a beautiful brand new couch that folds down to become a very comfortable queen size bed that sleeps 2. Beyond the living area is the large master bedroom with a queen size bed that sleeps 2 with a large antique dresser and 2 riverside windows. Off the master bedroom is a large tiled classic bathroom with an antique skylight and large tub with shower, and a small bedroom with a twin size bed and riverside window that is nice as a separate rest area, a great place for a child to sleep, or an out of sight room to put your luggage and things. My location is beyond great and safe. 10 minutes maximum in a cab or car service over the Williamsburg Bridge and you are in Manhattan. It is a short walk (3 min) to the North 6th Street East River Ferry ( the scenic quick river route to Midtown Manhattan or lower Manhattan, please check schedules). Subways: L train ( gray line): First stop in Brooklyn, only one stop to Manhattan and a neat 10 minute walk from my place going by shops, restaurants and street vendors to the very frequent Northside L train subway stop at Bedford Ave and North 7 St, (Everything you want to pick up to take back to my place is on Bedford Ave or Kent Avenue which are the walking routes to the subway. (Among the small shops, restaurants and bars, there is now a "Whole Foods" supermarket and a Iphone store on Bedford!) The JM subway that goes over the Williamsburg Bridge with wonderful views of the river and NYC skyline to lower Manhattan (Chinatown etc), is a little further (13 min walk ) through the South Side. After a night out in the neighborhood, you will find this quiet, comfortable, timeless place to come home to that is the top floor of a restored Williamsburg house. All East River parks are a short walk away with their spectacular river and skyline views. During the warm months the weekend flea/food markets down Kent Avenue/North 8 on weekends are fun and back dropped by the river and Manhattan skyline. Grand Street River Park is only a block and a half away. I love going there in the mornings with a cup of tea and taking in the NYC view. The quaint restaurants and music clubs are amazing and abundant, the "Williamsburg Foodtown" Market has all the groceries you need and frankly the only reason I would leave the "Burg" would be to go to a museum, St. Patrick's, Grand Central's Oyster Bar or ice skating at Rockerfeller Center. Indoor Flea Market on North 7th right off Kent Ave, "Mast Brothers Chocolate" on North 3rd off Berry, "Beer Garden" restaurant lunch, dinner, brunch with live music on Friday nights on North 3rd and Berry, "Sea" restaurant (Thai) on North 6, "Sweet Water" (Bistro) restaurant on North 6, "Dumont Burger" for awesome burgers on Bedford between South 2-3, "Aurora" (Northern Italian) with great brunches, lunches and dinners is right around the corner as is "Coxley's" sport bar with 40 beers on tap and great chicken wings on Grand St. "Teddy's" rest and bar (American Bistro) on North 8, a landmark that serves brunch, lunch and dinner and also has music sometimes at night, and the "Knitting Factory" music performance space and bar is 6 blocks away on Metropolitan. The best NY steak house, "Peter Luger's" reservations only, is in the vicinity. The floor is divided in 4 areas: upon entering you are in the kitchen and living, dining room with a wall and door that separates this space from the large bedroom in the front, the large tiled bathroom and the smaller front bedroom. The living area can easily convert to a sleeping area for 2. The place is adorable and sleeps four comfortably. Much quieter than most places in the area. Heat, air conditioning, wifi, fine linens/towels and kitchen utensils are provided for my guest. Full laundry drop off service and dry cleaners is available a couple of blocks up the street at "Berry Cleaners" or 302 Bedford Ave. My personal assistant/butler and I will check with you on your arrival time, hand over keys and be close at hand for anything you need during your stay. I and my husband are on our private lower floor of the house.
The neighborhood feels like a small village. It is very safe and has such a mixture of different foods, cultures, and restaurants. The Manhattan skyline views along Kent Ave can get no better and the wonderful Pier off North 5 on a Sunday afternoon is full of families, tourist and the occasional fisherman. During the warmer months there are outdoor flea markets and food markets of North 8 on the East River side. Bedford Avenue (3 blocks away) on the North and South side is filled with non chain restaurants, bars and shops.
  • A wonderful, rustic apartment, very close to the waterfront and amenities, and walkable to all of Williamsburg's bars and restaurants. Great service from our host Azul who was very helpful and communicative throughout. We were able to leave our baggage in the room and pick up later as we had an evening flight. We've already recommended this large, charming and convenient apartment to friends. Thank you Maria and Azul!

    Neil2015-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic apartment in a fantastic neigborhood! We totally loved the house and had a wonderful stay i New York. I will choose this Marias apartment again whenever our family is visiting NY again!

    Charlotte2015-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Maria and her assistant Azul were very prompt in their communication, especially when my plans changed last minute and I wanted to check in a bit earlier than I we had planned. Azul gave me some great tips on dinner delivery, the neighborhood was fantastic for wandering- I met some great people!- and the view from the roof was lovely, although you do have to climb a ladder fire escape to access it. I built a lovely fire, but the place got a bit smoky, perhaps because it was a windy night. Azul was prompt in getting back to me about what to do, and all in all it just made the experience more of an adventure. The bedroom was super cozy and the bedding and pillows very comfortable. Thank you Maria and Azul.

    Katie2016-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Myself and my boyfriend just arrived back from Maria and Gregs apartment. The apartment is amazing with some great features, like the old school oven and cooking equipment, exposed brick walls and lovely big fireplace. The location is great and within in a 10 minute walk to the subway which gets you on to the L train into manhattan in no time. Williamsburg itself is a cool area and Greg made some great recommendations on places to go off the main Bedford avenue drag. We always had a quick response from Maria or Azul (who manages the apartment) to any questions. Would definitely stay again if returning to NYC. Thanks for having us. Michelle and Pete :-)

    Michelle2013-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Maria's beautiful top floor apartment welcomed us the moment we stepped through the door, the personal touches like the fresh flowers on the table were delightful. It was a real oasis to return to from the frenetic pace of Manhattan, the generous sized rooms provided plenty of space for all four of us. The eclectic mix of furniture made for a truly personal experience, thanks Maria (and Azul)! Regards David & family

    David2015-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Wow. We could not have been treated better by both Maria and Azul. Spot-on recommendations for amazing ethnic restaurants in the area (all were so elegant casual and super gracious with our 4-yr old twins). They stayed in touch with us during our stay, and could not be more friendly, kind, caring and fun. The apartment is perfectly appointed with warmth and history and personality (AND... I have to note that the sheets were ironed! Yes, you read that right. Hospitality at its finest!!!) Its location is in the hub of everything, but still the area is quiet and very neighborhood safe. We took the ferry to Manhattan one day, the subway another and each had its own upside. Without hesitation, my family will stay here again. And again.

    Kristina2016-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great apartment, great building, great location. It's a couple of minutes walk to the waterside and I loved going there to watch the sun rise/ set and to just admire the Manhattan skyline. Williamsburg is a fun place to stay

    Linda2016-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely apartment in Brooklyn, perfect if you want to be away from the madness of Manhattan but still close enough to take advantage of all the sights and sounds. The apartment is clean and comfortable, with loads of character and original features, and is walkable to two subway stops. Make sure you spend some time in Williamsburg though - the bars and restaurants and all the little shops and markets are fantastic and all within walking distance!

    Brooklyn, Nowy Jork, Stany Zjednoczone

    Downtown, the best bit of Manhattan. One of, if not the, LARGEST space on Airbnb in NYC. Your Own PRIVATE Bathroom & PRIVATE Bedroom, a Terrace off the bedroom, near to subways/buses, restaurants, bars, real luxury right in the middle of things. Just read our 400+ 5-STAR REVIEWS and you will see why we are SUPER-HOSTS and why you will just love this place, like other guests, I promise. Si, hablo bien espanol, Français parlé assez bien.
    Downtown Manhattan, .. just like you see it in the films. Only so much better in real life !! All the details are below so that will see all that you will experience on your trip to the Big Apple - there are lots of things you will love when you stay here, but PLEASE PLEASE (did I say please?) try to read all the way to the end of the description, including sleeping arrangements, information on the area, getting around and the frequently asked questions. I know it is a bit of a novel, but it is well worth it and, from experience, it makes sure you understand everything in detail and ensures you will have the best stay that you can. Anything at all that you are not sure about, if you are new to Airbnb for example, just ask and I will get back asap and clarify. • Very spacious loft apartment ( about 2000 sq feet, 188 sq m, at last measure - so very BIG for New York) in the center of arguably the coolest area of the city (please do not argue ), modern, minimalist furniture , very open, very clean, I take great pride in having a spotless living environment (that goes for the host too). A Massive space that gets flooded with light via a wall of windows. Just take a look at the pictures. High security. Walking distance to subways & museums. Friendly building and very safe neighborhood. • Your own PRIVATE bathroom - Large, spacious, with Jacuzzi Bath, Shower, Hairdryer, Kohler fixtures. Fresh towels etc. Fully-stocked. All the shampoo and things you will ever need. Just for you. • Your own PRIVATE bedroom - Queen Bed for 2, firm and soft pillows for every type of sleeper, linens, towels, Large Flat Screen TV, Netflix, Amazon TV etc, Wardrobe. Again only for you. • Large kitchen - Open concept with an area to eat and with everything you need to design a gourmet feast, top of the line GE appliances, Microwave, Toaster, Kettle , Dishwasher, stainless steel counter top etc. Make any food you want - if it is really good, give me some. Make coffee there in the morning - always available -- you have your very own little coffee bar. • Very large living area, Real Fireplace, WiFi, Surround sound HDTV with HDMI hook-up and Roku TV, Bose sound system with iPhone/iPod hook-up, the best choice in music (in my opinion, most not consulted). Sit.... Enjoy • Large dining area - seats lots, great views over the city and over the Williamsburg Bridge. Eat foods mentioned above (probably while seated, although one can never be sure). • Natural brick walls (as opposed to unnatural I suppose) and a lovely Merbeau wooden floor, both of which look good (but don't say much). • Floor to ceiling windows throughout - bathed in sun (when the sun is out, mainly, of course) • Outside secluded seating area and balcony - you access directly from your room - very secluded (sometimes I cannot find it) • Full air conditioning / heating in the room and in rest of loft - be hot, be cool (most likely one at a time) • Bosch Washer and Dryer - for you to use - we like to reserve that for guests who stay for 3 nights or longer - being kind to the world too, we try to use cold water as well where possible. • Keyed Private elevator entrance directly into Loft - of course you have your own key (or stairs if u have the energy - does not seem so popular, strangely) • Printer / Scanner available. Pens and paper too, if you are a traditionalist.(although we draw the line at camel hair brushes, I'm sure you understand). And there is a universal power adapter for you to use to charge your gadgets too. • The building is a very smart development, a recently renovated 7-story apartment block with original brick facade, great views of the city skyline. Quiet, lovely, village feel, with parks and pedestrian areas just outside, but close enough to get anywhere very easily. I think I am allowed to say it is authentic. • This is a very large and comfortable space that you will be free to enjoy as you wish (this is your vacation after all). You will have lots of privacy and as well as the city, you have Books, Music (great as mentioned above), Roku TV with lots of channels and an online DVR and more .... or just relax and chat. Up to you. We provide the following publications too New York Times New York Magazine so you can feel a bit like a New Yorker • Located in the heart of Downtown - food (some of the best in the city), drink, fun, shopping all very, very close. A very cool residential neighborhood just a short trip to all the action. Perfect location for exploring both sides of the river too, as very close to Brooklyn and Williamsburg. One of the most historic neighborhoods in the U.S. (perhaps the most). We are only a few minutes away from the walkway along the East River, it has a great view of the Brooklyn bridge and Manhattan Bridge. Nearly opposite the Tenement Museum (which is really great). TV, Film and general interest media all the time (become a star - or an extra anyway) ,music clubs and comedy left right and center and Alphabet City, Ludlow Street , East Village, Chinatown and Soho all in spitting distance - and I can not spit far. Direct Access to cabs just outside building. • Food shopping wise, it is 3 blocks from a Whole Foods and a couple of blocks from the Essex Street Market. Great food shopping if you want. I hope everything is covered - email if you need more information. I hope to see you soon and I hope I can be part of your visit to this unique place.
    Best neighborhood in Manhattan for independent coffee shops, cozy wine bars, up-and-coming restaurants (the area has 4 out of the top 10 best places to eat in this years NY magazine list) , intimate music venues, and interesting owner-operated shops. Like no other area in the city. A very peaceful cool neighborhood, yet just a short trip to all the action. Check out the "Guidebook" with my listing -- I send a much longer one that I have written directly to guests that do decide to stay before they get here - and they love it, mention it often in their reviews and keep asking for extra copies!!
  • We enjoyed a wonderful 5 days in NYC staying with Carol and Marc who were fabulous hosts. Friendly, easy going, lots of recommendations for restaurants and places to visit. Used their bikes to explore the city - great way to get around! Loved the Loft apartment - a real NYC experience. Highly recommended. These Aussies will be back! Thanks Carol and Marc.

    Mary2013-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place!! Location was perfect and Carol and Marc go out of their way to make you comfortable!! We will be back!!

    Jeff2018-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Loger chez Carol est le compromis idéal pour découvrir NY. Son loft est typiquement new-yorkais avec une chambre et une salle de bains privatisés, un salon et une cuisine en accès libre et une hôte des plus accueillantes. Carol vous donnera tous les conseils nécessaires avant puis au cours de votre séjour, les bons plans. Enfin, il est possible d'échanger, discuter autour de l'"american way of life"... de très bons moments garantis. Enfin, le loft est bien situé dans lower east side, quartier calme, à proximité de tous les moyens de transport.

    Alderic2013-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was PERFECT! For us it was the first time using Air B&B and a total success. The pictures from Carol and Marc are exactly how it is in real life. We had our own room with bathroom and terrace. We stood in New York for 10 days and enjoyed our time with the host. We felt like home. If we had any question they helped out and gave us perfect information about the neighborhood and the city. But the most important thing is that they are two wonderful people how made our stay memorable and complete. We are happy to meet them and can just recommend the place. Thanks Carol and Marc!

    Wiebke2014-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • This was the second time I decided to stay with Carol and Marc while in New York because that is how great the first stay went. They are extremely welcoming people and their residence is spotless as well as in a nice neighborhood with subway stops only a short walk away. Enjoyed having some nice conversations with them both and look forward to seeing them again hopefully sooner than later! I could not recommend a place to stay while in New York more than their place!

  • Hallo nach New York, sind wieder in Frankfurt und warten auf unseren Anschlussflug. Wir hatten tolle Tage in New York, ihr habt maßgeblich zum Gelingen unserer Woche beigetragen- tolles Appartement, tolle Lage, super Gastgeber. Verbunden mit den besten Wünschen Danke sagen Elke & Claudia

    Elke2016-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at your place (and) in Manhatten. Appartment is located in a very nice area with lots of bars and restaurants and close by the metro. A perfect place to discover Manhatten an the LES. Marc and Carol have a very nice appartment and are very friendly and helpful to get you around. If you want privacy you'll get it. If you want a conversation and a nice evening together you can get it as well. We enjoyed our stay and if possible I will return in 2 years with my other son to explore Manhatten again.

    Timo2016-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great location for public transportation and lots of things to do in walking distance. Their City Home is very spacious and they have all the amenities. Your lg private bathroom is a few steps down the hall if not having a connecting one is an issue for you. There are lots of windows and your room opens to a lovely outdoor garden area.

    Nowy Jork, Nowy Jork, Stany Zjednoczone

    Cozy, warm atmosphere, perfect for the traveler looking for a real NY experience.This reservation is for one person.If you want to book for 2 guests it is an extra $100 per night. Best neighborhood in midtown Manhattan for the best price. In the hub of Hell's Kitchen nightlife, restaurants, theaters, museums.
    Bedroom is small, but very comforting. Kitchen is HUGE with tons of sunlight and every spice you can imagine for all you chefs. Very easy going apartment- smoking is perfectly fine. Part of the apartment is an art workshop. Bathroom is large with skylight. Apartment is in back of the building, so the apartment is very quiet. An oasis in midtown. This reservation is for one guest.
    Hell's kitchen is THE center of the entire city. Some of the best and affordable restaurants in the city, with any type of cuisine you could want. The apartment is walk able to virtually any subway line in the city. The neighborhood is in the center of the arts, with Times Square, Broadway theaters, and Central Park a stone's throw away. A vibrant nightlife and artist community with a neighborhood feel. Anything you're looking for is here!
  • Friendly host, great location.

    David2016-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect stay! Jeffrey is an amazing host with great people skills. He taught me a lot of amazing things and helped educate me on some of the great legends of the 20th century! He is an amazing cook, really looks out for his guests, and is one of the most spiritual people I've ever met in my life. Also, he makes really beautiful scarves! The apartment is beautiful. Perfect stay! Would love to do it again!

    Caesar2016-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Nice healthy breakfast after CP running. I really enjoyed it!!!

    Karina2017-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Es un departamento confortable sin grandes lujos pero con una excelente ubicación. Jeffrey fue un gran anfitrión siempre atento y predispuesto a ayudar en lo posible.

    Hugo Sandro2017-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • Jeff was real, authentic, and interesting. His place is so unique and differentiated, I beg you to stay here. Make a real connection, experience something new and alive and beautiful. Buy one of his beautiful handmade scarves that you can find in his workshop. Be happy.

    Jake2016-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay with Jeffrey. Homely apartment. Really interesting staying with a working artist. Excellent breakfasts too. Jeffrey was very helpful overall and a great laugh! Highly recommended

    Fintan2018-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • Jeffrey was extremely hospitable! After a long day of traveling, he helped me carry my bags upstairs and (which were really heavy btw) and provided refreshments while I settled in! I didn't spend too much time at the place since I wanted to explore the city as much as possible, but Jeffrey made sure I had everything I needed to come in and out as needed. You can't beat the location! So close to everything which was extremely convenient to someone like me who wanted to bar hop and try as many restaurants as possible while in town! You're a few blocks from Times Square and the subway! You do get your own room which is nice. I would totally stay here again for my next NYC visit!

    Carlos2015-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • A great location .. A wonderful hospitality .. A house full of art ... A great choice for Newyork .. once you go, you do not even think of another place .. It was the second time for me .. and it was excellent again.. Thank you Jeffrey.

    This is a comfortable studio apartment with exposed brick that has a true city feeling. This studio has a newly renovate bathroom and kitchen with stain steel appliances. The space fits four and is centrally located on a Historic quiet street. This unit is loaded with cable and wifi. Just blocks away from public transportation A and G train lines. And minutes away from the bus route B25 B26 and the B44. Come and explore the charm of Bed-Stuy and all the Historic's. I love this neighborhood. !
    This historic section of Brooklyn is home to some of the most magnificent brownstones streets in the world, with charming architectural landmarks. There so many new restaurants and bars popping up in the area such as Peaches,Hot house,Royals, Saraghina, and Gallery.
  • The home was clean, warm, and quiet. Everything we needed. Recommend.

    Christina2017-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was very clean and exactly as described. Michelle was very helpful and a quick responder. We would highly recommend!

    Claire2019-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • My friends and I had an amazing stay at Michelle's studio. The apartment was enough space for the three of us, with everything we need within reach. Michelle was an amazing host, accommodating and there to provide us with anything we needed. Michelle was a great communicator and would respond quickly if we needed anything. The area is quiet for the most part and residential, just a few blocks away from stores, shops and restaurants making it easy to get out and explore! It was overall a great weekend at a great place :) thanks for everything, Michelle!

    Raessa2017-05-06T00:00:00Z
  • This space was great! She was very accommodating to us. I felt very at home the pictures are accurate. It's decorated very pretty. Not a far walk from the subway. She had a response right away for me for anything I asked. Store is right on the corner for anything you need. The space is very clean. I would recommend that anyone stay here. Thank you Michelle you were so wonderful!

    Danielle2017-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much, Michelle! I enjoyed staying at your place and I like the decor and the vibe of the house. It was nice talking to you and I appreciated your help while moving in. It was a nice trip. Best, Sing.

    Yunxin2019-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place. Perfect sized room for a getaway. It was nice that there was a small kitchen for our use as well.

    Lilian2018-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Very functional space in a pretty neighborhood with lots of coffee shops and other dining options. Fifteen minute walk to A/C subway allowing for quick trip into NYC. The unit was well supplied with bed linens, towels, kitchen appliances and plates/bowls/utensils, etc. Quiet neighbor with lots of character. Area is safe when walking around late evenings or plentiful access to Uber.

    Gene2018-10-31T00:00:00Z

    The ideal location to visit New York. Close to the city but in a quiet street with plenty of local restaurants to chose from and good subway connections. Clean and tidy accommodation well stocked with the basics. Asa and Nate were very helpful and answered all out touristy questions.

    Jeffrey's place was great. It is in the perfect spot, close to everything and he is very welcoming and very easy to chat with. He is also helpful with directions and very knowledgable about the city. I would recommend his place and I hope to visit again in the future. P. S. Thanks for the breakfasts, they were fantastic.
