We are easy going, respectful* and clean. We only expect* the same from you.
PS. Jorge works as a promoter in some of the best clubs in Manhattan. Make sure you save a night to go out with him.
Welcome to our brand new apartment, located in the middle of Williamsburg, the perfect base for your New York City experience. The apartment itself, the amenities and all the furniture in the apartment are brand new! We are surround by transportation options so you are only a short walk away from a train that will take you into Manhattan in 5minutes.
The apartment is only 3 short blocks to the Montrose Av L train and the same distance to the Lorimer JM and Broadway G train. All your bases are covered with these 4 trains that service all of Manhattan and the best parts of Brooklyn. You are literally 5 minutes ride away from Lower East Side, East Village and China Town and 20 minutes to Empire State Building and just a little bit longer to Central Park.
Williamsburg is the trendiest part of NYC, full of bars, restaurants, cafes and small 24hr grocery stores (called 'bodegas'). We have both been living in the area for years so we know all the best local spots in our area, not to mention the rest of NYC. Let us help you get to all the little hidden gems in Williamsburg that you wont find out about through a guide book. It also helps that we are walking distance to all these place.
The rooms in our apartment are newly furnished, the full size beds in the rooms are brand new and very comfortable, perfect for after a long day (or night) bouncing around the city. All rooms have central air so you will never be too hot or cold. The rooms have either a skylight or a window which lets in beautiful natural light. All rooms have plenty of room in them for storage, so if you have a lot of things or go on a shopping spree, there will be plenty of room for you.
The bathroom is big and brand new!
The lounge area has a full bar set up in it which guests are more than welcome to use. We also have a 42 inch Smart TV which can be used to watch movies, browse the internet or play music and PS3 after a long day walking around, or if you are feeling lazy. It rotates so you can watch it in the kitchen or sitting on the couch. We also have a printer in case you want to print documents on it.
The kitchen has also been furnished brand new with a new big stove and fridge. If you like cooking all the utensils are there for you, as well as a kitchen table (under a skylight that lets in sun all day) for you to enjoy a meal. There is also a brand new sofa that you can lounge around lazily any time of the day, or night. There is tea and coffee that you can help yourself to, and there is almost always beer in the fridge that we are more than happy for you to take.
Also, if you are interested we have a spare cell phone which you can rent from us to use whilst you are here. You can call or text friends you may have here, make bookings for car services, restaurants, theatre or movie tickets, etc, etc. Ask us about it :)
You hosts are 2 very worldly, well travelled individuals that happily invite you into our home. We want to make sure your experience the most comfort you can whilst staying with us in NYC. Please dont hesitate to ask us any more questions,
We hope to see you soon :)
Guest have access to the whole place.
"Mi casa es tu casa"
I really enjoy taking people out to the places around.
Be ready for some Venezuelan food, samba dancing and cheap beer around the corner.
Basically there is no set of house rules that you have to follow.
We are not very strict on a set check in time or check out time, just let us know before you arrive and what time you will checking in and if you know what time you will be leaving, please let us know before hand. Come and go as you please, help yourself to anything in the kitchen or bathroom and make yourself at home.
One request is that you take your shoes off whilst in the apartment. Doing this will prevent noise from the hardwood floors travelling throughout the apartment.
We are Javier and Jorge, we have been living in NYC for over 6 years now and love this city and would love to share our knowledge and experience of the city with you. Williamsburg, Brooklyn is our home, we work here and spend most of my time in this area so you will not feel lost staying with us. Javier is from Latin America (if you guess the country first round is on us) so I know what feels like to be a traveller on a new adventure!!
We have been active airbnb member for quite some time now and we seriously enjoy meeting new people and taking them to my favorite bars and restaurants in the area!! Do not be a estranger.
Looking forward to hear from you soon!!
Javier and Jorge
