Property description

Please call me, contact me directly at or through my website: (See Booking, below).

BEAUTIFUL, simply furnished, private two bedroom apartment in Williamsburg, one of New York's most fashionable and fun areas. The apartment is very spacious-- about 1000 square feet-- with lots of room and privacy for a family or group of friends.

There is also a peaceful GARDEN that you are welcome to use. There is AC in both bedrooms.

There is a full kitchen, full bath and pull-out sofa-- the apartment will sleep 6. The apartment is the entire first floor of a 150-year-old house with high ceilings and lots of sunlight. It has a a private entry. One bed is a king, and the other is queen, and there is also a King convertible sofa in the huge 'bedroom suite.' Linens and towels are provided. There is a microwave, stove, toaster, kettle, pots, pans, coffee maker, hair dryer, etc. Also toys and kids' books.There is NO TV, but there is wifi.

TRANSPORT: The apartment is one block (50 yards or meters) from the subway (see the nearest blue 'M' on the map). Our stop is Grand Street on the L line- to Union Square in Central Manhattan it takes 10 minutes (I timed it!) The subway runs 24 hours. It's a very convenient line because it runs across Manhattan and connects with most other lines.

AREA: Our street is safe and residential. We are always happy to point the way to our beloved local hang-outs, including some of the best restaurants and most charming cafes in New York, as well as fashionable shopping. Williamsburg is also world-famous for its cutting edge music scene and galleries, and its mix of artists, flamboyant fashionistas and young families. (As a German friend of ours said, 'Williamsburg ist das coolste!')

KIDS: We love kids!

A HUGE ADVANTAGE over Manhattan: parking is easy to find!

WE PROVIDE: linens, towels, dishes, pots, pack & play, etc.

BOOKING: I prefer to do my own booking and keep the apartment personal and family run, rather than book through vrbo and pay them extra fees. Please feel free to call me at 917 346 5501 or write me at
I require a $100 deposit by check or Paypal to hold the reservation, and the balance when guests arrive. My website is Thanks!

The rate is $150 per night in the busy season and $140 per night for January and March. Special rates for February: $2250 for the month, $600 per week and $125 per night. For stays over the week including Christmas and New Year's, $225 per night, unless you stay at least 7 days at this time, then it's $175 per night. For stays of three days or less there is a $50 cleaning fee. For parties of five or more there is an additional fee of $20 per person per night.

REFUNDS: I will refund your deposit only if you let me know of your cancelation at least two months in advance. However, if you let me know a month in advance AND I am able to refill the reservation, I will also refund you in this case.

POLICY ABOUT CLEANING/CLEANING FEE: Because many people are traveling on a budget, I offer guests the option to clean themselves and not pay a cleaning fee. This includes cleaning the bathroom and kitchen, sweeping and stripping the beds, but not cleaning the sheets. If you would rather not clean, you can leave $60 for a cleaning person.

GROCERIES: There is a corner store a few feet from the house and a supermarket one block away, as well as a health food store, cafe, fish market, liquor store, pizza place, and many other food options.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees and Rental Conditions:

  • Property Damage Protection $99
  • Taxes Not included


I ask for a small deposit of $100 because I prefer to get the balance in cash. Vrbo recently posted that warning about not paying cash but I don't want to pay a company the fees and would prefer to keep my rates reasonable for the guests and also not make my life more complicated! If you feel uncomfortable about it, please refer to my reviews.
