Large, quiet bedroom available in a uniquely spacious, inviting, prime Williamsburg apt! Located just 15 minutes to lower Manhattan/Union Square. New luxury bedding. Central air and heated floors. Toiletries and snacks provided! Perfect for couples and people who want to explore NYC!

The space

My cozy (and yet large) apt is a 5 min walk from the L/G/JMZ trains, and is one block south of bustling Grand Ave. It's located on the ground floor, which is perfect when you're tired from touristing NYC and don't want to use any more stairs!

Free parking is available right outside via normal residential street parking; garages and car rentals available as well nearby.

The bedroom is bright and quiet with adjustable temperature (ask me) and blackout curtains. I glady provide clean luxury bedding (Queen size), towels, assorted toiletries, and use of my kitchen to make your stay feel like home. Yes, I have a hairdryer - so many people want to make sure of this! :)

You can get practically anything delivered to you if you'd like, from wine to laundry to thai food, or can easily walk to anything. I'd like to create a great experience for you so just let me know what your needs are!

If you'd like, I would be happy to show you some special sights in NYC or give you recommendations. Just ask! Helping visitors discover this amazing city outside of touristy guidebooks is one of my favorite personal activities :)

Clean up after yourself, remove shoes upon entry, recycle, smoke outside, turn all lights off and close the curtains when not in use and lock door before leaving. No extra guests or pets, please, without explicit approval from me. Considerate people are the best!

Please hang used towels up to dry in the bathroom (do not leave on upholstry).

Please be mindful of eating in your room. If anything permanently stains or damages bedding/furniture, your security deposit may be used to replace the item. This is to ensure that every guest has a clean and pristine environment! :)

Please be aware that this is a typical dwelling in Brooklyn, not a hotel. While our apartment and guest room are significantly larger than most comparable apartments, some guests who have never been to NYC may be surprised by how dense everything is - open, wide space is not the norm here. If you require storage space for your clothes, please let me know so we can create more room for you.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, I am always available to my guests by phone or email.

You must also acknowledge
Potential for noise - This is a ground-floor apartment in Brooklyn, so you might hear normal street noise in the LR. The bedrooms face the back so it is quite peaceful!
Some spaces are shared - This is our home so the common spaces have to be shared. However, we are often working, out, away, or in our own room.
Amenity limitations - We pay for ALL utilities, so we try not to be wasteful. Hot water showers may decrease after 30 min, but it refills quickly.

Marie is such a lovely person. She made our stay so pleasant. Great communication!

Marie and Eric were friendly, gracious and accommodating. We felt welcome in their home. We were able to find street parking without difficulty, which was a need we had in finding a place in NYC. Marie was helpful with this. The apartment is in a great location in Williamsburg with easy access to a variety of transportation options and near many great restaurants and coffee shops. The bed is in a room that is usually used as an office and we found it a bit cramped; there was not a lot of room for our belongings. This listing is best suited for a student or single person- not great for a couple.

Awesome experience! I would highly recommend staying here, and plan to stay here again the next time I visit. Marie's apartment is very clean, quiet, comfortable and well decorated. Communication was very clear leading up to the visit and during the visit.

Marie had great communication with us from the start. My husband and I were visiting for a convention but wanted to experience Brooklyn and we LOVED it! Marie and Eric were perfect hosts who provides great company and helpful information about places to go. We walked everywhere and the metro was super easy to navigate to the city. We look forward to coming back!
