About this listing

This is a LARGE bedroom with three windows in a two-bedroom apartment in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The room has its own separate bathroom and its own private entrance from the hall. The apartment has a large private backyard.

The space

Welcome to your own virtual studio. This room has it's own bathroom and entrance from the hall—meaning you only share the kitchen, dining area and private backyard.

I have plants, no pets, and maintain a clean home. This apartment is one-of-a-kind, with original wood floors and molding.

The location on Huron Street is unbeatable. We are a 2-minute walk from the Greenpoint Ave. stop on the G train and a 2-minute walk to the East River Ferry—a 10-minute commute to midtown Manhattan.

It is in the heart of the best bars, boutiques and restaurants in Greenpoint. The room has a new mattress/bed, closet, dresser and bookshelf. You will have keys to your private entrance, and can use the kitchen, dining room and backyard (when it's warm).

Interaction with guests

I am a busy professional, but I also love showing people around my neighborhood and New York.

If am in town, I will offer friendly advice on places to go and things to do. If I am out of town, my friend Marie will check on you and see that all is well.

Combined, we speak English, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian and French!

Other things to note

I lived overseas for many years and relied on the hospitality of others to show me their cities and towns and make my time there unforgettable.

I look forward to repaying all those favors.

Matthew's place is exactly as described...The pictures are accurate. Clean room with a comfy bed, great bathroom. 3 minutes walk to the nearest subway station. Greenpoint is a great neighborhood. Following the tips Vicki gave us, we really enjoyed Odd Fox coffee right on the corner of Manhattan Av. The East River Ferry (5 minutes walk) is the nicest way to get to Manhattan and offers awesome views of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Our only regret is that we had a very busy schedule and barely had time to met our hosts. L'appartement de Matthew est exactement conforme à sa description et aux photos. Propre, salle de bain impeccable, à 3 minutes du métro. Le quartier est agréable , tout à disposition à proximité. Nous recommandons le Ode Fox coffee juste au coin de la rue pour démarrer le matin et surtout l'East River Ferry. L'embarcadère est à 5 minutes à pied, c'est un des meilleurs moyens de rejoindre downtown Manhattan en profitant de vues superbes sur la skyline de Manhattan et sur Brooklyn. Un seul regret, nous avons à peine croisé nos hôtes à cause d'un planning chargé, mais ils ont été de très bon conseils.

Matthew's room and bathroom are great! It's very private and clean. My father stayed here since I live in a very small apartment nearby and it worked out really well. The pictures are accurate and you will not be disappointed if you stay here. Great for a single person or couple.

Mathews place made for an awesome getaway for my wife and I in Brooklyn! The location is perfect. On a quite street with easy access to public transportation, bars and restaurants. Mathew and Vicki and great hosts and the check in process was smooth. We were very happy with our room and the private entrance is a nice plus! Would definitely stay here again!
