About the property

Charming one bedroom floor-through apartment located in a two-family townhouse, on a tree-lined, landmark block in historic Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Recently voted 'Best Block to live on in the Metropolitan Area' by New York Magazine. This tranquil neighborhood is filled with wonderful parks, restaurants, book shops, and all you'll need for a wonderful stay in New York. Walking distance to Williamsburg, currently one of New York's hippest neighborhoods, with its galleries, boutiques, bars, and restaurants.

There's a health food grocery store on the corner and the subway to Manhattan a block away. Manhattan's East River Ferry is just 2 blocks away. With public transportation, you are 10 minutes from Midtown.

Our one bedroom apartment has been recently renovated with many original details and is clean and comfortable.

Beautiful Brooklyn Neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Karyn and Alex are great hosts. The apartment was spotless and the location convenient to everything. One must remember that this is an apartment shared by a family, and there will be noise overhead from the kids romping around. We love kids so no problem for us, and no problem after 10 pm. Also if you drive a car, parking is a challenge if you come back to the apartment after about 8 pm. The apartment was also a little dark for our tastes, but all in all, it's a great, spacious, place to stay that felt like a home away from home.

Southern Hospitality

I have had family stay at this Greenpoint residence before me so therefore I heard it was fantastic. Very large and spacious by NY standards. Very affordable. Safe residential neighborhood with a stones throw to great restaurants, shopping and the subway. Clean as a whistle and the landlords are very accommodating and friendly.

Our Brooklyn vacation spot.

  • 3 of 5

I think if they would clean up the backyard, it'd be a lot more appealing. There's a lot of stuff out there with no rhyme nor reason. A good weed eating would make a huge difference and organizing the lawn furniture which is strewn all over. The dining/ living area look right out on the yard.

They didn't seem to have prepared for our visit. There was no toilet paper or bar soap for the bathroom/shower. There were no towels in the bath and after some scrounging, we found 2 giant towels. We did find small towels that worked fine for hand drying. We felt it wasn't our responsibility to go to the store and furnish what should've been there upon our arrival.

There was noise from the upstairs which could be eliminated. Dogs running and something sounding like a basketball being dribbled overhead.

We never saw them but knew if we needed to we could call either of them. We did have a lovely time in NYC and Brooklyn. The street they live on is beautiful and close to everything.

Owner's Response: We were sorry to hear that you had some problems with the rental. We had shown you that there were towels (large and small) available in the closet, as well as toilet paper. There must've been a misunderstanding. As for the hand soap, we were under the impression that, after we spoke, you were going to take care of that. That was an oversight and we apologize for that. We always have it available for our guests. The backyard, unfortunately is not for renter use. We do our best to keep it clean but spring time is a time of a lot of growth and we can only control so much. As for the sound from above, well we have a young family upstairs and that is one of the joys of life in the Big Apple. We hope it did not disturb you too much and rough housing is not permitted after 9PM. Glad to hear you had a pleasant stay otherwise. We take great pride in all our positive reviews. Best, Alex & Karyn
