About the property

You Can Have It All! Close To The Action Of The City & Head Back To Tranquility

Come stay in my TOTALLY PRIVATE 1 Bedroom apartment located in the heart of Greenpoint, Brooklyn! This private, clean 1 bedroom is located on the entire 2nd floor of a 3 family building, complete with its own full size kitchen, bathroom, living room, and breakfast nook. It has everything you would possibly need for a comfortable stay.

The apartment is located on a very quiet, tranquil tree-lined street, yet 1/2 block away from amazing restaurants, bars, shops, laundromats, grocery & 24-hr convenient stores on trendy Franklin St. so you get the best of both worlds!

If you decide you'd like to venture out to Manhattan, it's super easy! There are plenty of options to get you to there quickly:

1) We are 1 block from the East River Ferry, the best way to both get around & see the city. A 10 minute, cheap & spectacular boat ride to Midtown Manhattan (on 34th street). 5 other stops going to all the great Brooklyn and Manhattan destinations: Wall Street, Dumbo, Williamsburg, Long Island City and on weekends to Governors Island. You can do an Internet search for East River Ferry for more info.

2) We are 2 blocks from the Greenpoint Avenue G (Subway) Station. (on the India St. entrance)

3) It's a 10 minute walk to the 7 train (Subway) over the Pulaski Bridge which brings you to Grand Central Station and Times Square in 5 min. (total approx. travel time 15 min)

There is one large queen sized bed with a beautiful view of the back yard garden. The comfy couch can also sleep 1. In addition, we have a queen sized air mattress if you prefer. This will sleep 2 people.

Children are definitely welcome! We have a high chair, pack-n-play and plenty of toys available upon request & all are always free of charge.

Linens, towels, basic paper products and soap/shampoo/conditioner are included. I have a hair dryer also located in bathroom. On street parking is free, safe and widely available most likely in front of our home.

The bathroom is clean and new and has a tub/shower, toilet & sink.

Kitchen is equipped with a fridge, sink, gas stove, pots & pans, toaster oven, coffee maker, coffee grinder, kettle and blender. We have plenty of dishes/cups/coffee mugs/utensils as well.

Wi-Fi and Satellite TV included. Satellite TV has 259 channels as well as HBO, Showtime & Cinemax in case you want to stay in and take it easy.

This is a super clean newly renovated private 1 bedroom on a quiet block. You really can have it all here, quiet when you need it but minutes away from all the action!

Getting to our apartment from the airport is also a breeze:

-Laguardia Airport is 7 miles from the apartment. It typically takes 15-20 min. for a taxi/car ride. Taxi fare is approx. $23-25 (both dependent on traffic)

-JFK Airport is 15 miles from apt. It typically takes30-35 min. for a taxi/car ride. Fare approx. $35-40 (both dependent on traffic)

-Newark Airport is 18 miles from apt. It typically takes 35-40 min. and is around $50 for a taxi (both dependent on traffic)

Clean affordable Brooklyn apartment

  • 5 of 5

This cute apartment is in a great location for a visit of the city. Out of the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, and just down the street from wonderful views of the skyline, especially at night. Close to the ferry and the subway- with straightforward transfers to get where you need to go. The private apartment was clean and had all the amenities you might need including umbrellas and maps. The unassuming deli on the corner has great hot sandwiches!

Best bang for our buck in N.Y.C.

  • 5 of 5

We already stayed at several places in N.Y.C. But this apartment definitely beat everything else we had before. We booked for one week and enjoyed every day of our stay. It's a place for a couple or an individual, and for this number of persons this apartment offers plenty of room. It's got plenty of windows, so it's bright and friendly. It's well and practically furnished and tastefully decorated. Concerning the amenities and equipment not the slightest detail was missing. Lisa, our charming host even thought about umbrellas for her guests. And this is what separates the host who wants his (her) guests to feel at home from the rest. We felt at home from the first minute on. The local situation of the apartment also is worth to be mentioned. It's a 5 - minute walk to the Greenpoint stop of the East River Ferry - which takes 10 minutes to midtown Manhattan and 15 minutes to Dumbo. The next subway station (G-line) is at 7 min. walking distance. If one doesn't mind walking he might walk to Williamsburg in 30 min. (Or take the subway, which wouldn't make much difference, time wise) The neighborhood is a quiet one - despite a lot of grocery shops and good bars and restaurants. We felt like being in a small town rather than 15 min. away from midtown Manhattan. All in all - two thumbs up, and we hope to stay there again, should we go back to N.Y.C. - Thank you Lisa!

Cozy Brooklyn Experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this one bedroom apartment in Brooklyn for two nights. Lisa was amazing--helpful, friendly and inviting! The apartment was very clean, comfortable, and a great refuge from the city. It is in a great location, just minutes from Manhattan, either by walking the bridge, taking the ferry or the subway. We were also fortunate to be able to park our car right outside. Our stay in Brooklyn was our family's favorite part of our trip to New York city.

Comfortable Apartment in Green Point!

  • 5 of 5

We came to town for the NY Marathon. This apartment had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable, and the neighborhood is very quiet at night. When we arrived, Lisa came by to meet us and answer any questions that we had. The apartment is close to grocery, bodega and Metro stop. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The spectators were able to take a short walk from the apartment and watch our Marathon runner come by!
