This unique Williamsburg penthouse spans the second floor of our two-story apartment. The penthouse has its own private entrance, bathroom and a north facing terrace with a hammock that overlooks the Williamsburg / Manhattan skyline and gets amazing sunsets. It comfortably sleeps 2 people in the queen bed, with an additional queen air mattress option for larger groups. It is conveniently located close to the L/G/J/M/Z trains making it easy to get wherever you want to go.
Our penthouse is on the 5th story of a modern 5 story walk up building (no elevator) and it spans the entire second floor of our two story apartment. The penthouse stands alone on the top floor as a private suite with its own entrance, bathroom, and large terrace with inspiring views of Brooklyn and Manhattan. The penthouse does not have its own private kitchen, but you do have access to the kitchen downstairs which is shared with us who live in the apartment below the penthouse. From the penthouse you have a view of the Manhattan skyline and the surrounding Williamsburg neighborhood. The apartment is furnished with a mixture of vintage, modern, and handmade furniture including a custom queen bed that comfortably sleeps 2 guests and an optional queen air mattress for larger groups.
In addition to the penthouse suite which is an open floor plan with a sleeping area, living room area, closet, private bathroom and terrace, you also have access to the (shared) kitchen downstairs. If you decide not to use the kitchen, the penthouse upstairs serves as a private stand alone apartment that is totally closed off from the rest of the apartment with a door that locks.
The other rooms downstairs are not part of the Airbnb space.
Interaction with guests
My roommate Chris and I (also Chris) both live in the apartment below the penthouse, one of us will meet you when you arrive to check you in and show you around. We are always available if you should need anything or have any questions about the place or about the neighborhood, so feel free to text me or message me anytime.
Other things to note
Because this is our home we are sharing with you, we prefer to only accept requests from people with a history of good reviews and/or references listed on their profile. Please don't instant book a reservation on behalf of another party if you are not going to be staying yourself.
For security and peace of mind, we don't allow any additional guests or visitors inside the building, only those listed in the reservation or discussed prior to your arrival are allowed in the building. This place is reserved and priced for guests on the reservation only, please be respectful of this rule.
There is no smoking inside, but you can smoke on the outdoor terrace- just be sure not to flick your cigarette or anything off the balcony, please use the trash can.
Try to keep volume down to a reasonably low level between midnight-9am.
We prefer if it you remove your shoes inside the apartment and keep your shoes inside your space. We typically wear socks or slippers inside the house to keep the floors clean, especially in the winter when it is wet or snowy outside. Definitely no shoes on the rug in the living room downstairs.
You are welcome to use the kitchen downstairs, but it is a shared space that my roommate and I use, so please clean up after yourself. We request that if you have any food or snacks that you keep it put away in the kitchen and not laying out in the penthouse space (so we don't attract any bugs).
We want to respect our neighbors and maintain a peaceful environment in our building so please refrain from any loud yelling, screaming, or physical fighting in the building.
