The space


Please note, I don't accept reservations more than 3 months in advance...

The Loft is a lovely & light-filled apartment in a waterfront rowhouse in Brooklyn's booming Greenpoint Historic District, on the riverfront just north of bustling Williamsburg. Walk to the Bedford "L" subway stop, or just a few blocks to the Greenpoint "G" stop. East River Ferry service (with multiple stops in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens) is 2 blocks from the house, on the India Street waterfront. Plenty of restaurants, bars, boutiques, cafes, galleries, banks, gyms, etc all within blocks.

800 completely open interior square feet; kitchen, dining area, living room, bedroom nook and private on-floor bathroom. The apartment is located on the 2nd floor of a building which houses an antiques store on the first floor (which has a lovely garden, of which you have a view down below while gazing out at the stellar Manhattan skyline, including a fantastic view of the Empire State and the Chrysler Building!).

Commercial & residential dead-end street, terminating at Transmitter Park on the East River. Full kitchen with gas stove, oven and full-size refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher and washer/dryer. WiFi access. There is no television in this house, because you have better things to do here in NYC! There is a Bose ipod/iphone dock. This sunny loft is furnished with a variety of antiques and modern accessories, and features gorgeous exposed beams and beautiful original wide-plank floors. (*Please note: fireplace is NOT functional!) There is a window A/C unit, and this is an airy apartment with a fantastic cross-current, right on the East River, and in the winter months you'll be toasty warm; this entire building was a loving & complete gut job, with all brand-new electric and plumbing. Please be aware that this street is both commercial & residential; while the noise level is normal for NYC, this is not a "silent" apartment. Closing the front windows at night helps considerably.

Bedroom is a Queen size bed, and sleeper sofa opens to a Double bed.

Regarding the floorplan: It is of course a fully private apartment, it's just an old townhouse layout (the building was built in 1870s) -- your bathroom door and front door are literally right next to each other on the 2nd floor landing, and at the other end of that corridor is the door to the 3rd floor apartment. I own this property with my best friend Alex (a total sweetie) and he lives on the 3rd floor; his apartment is completely self-contained, and you won't be sharing any portion of your space with him.

Privacy & comfort await!

Thanks for looking, and we look forward to hosting you in fantastic Greenpoint!

Everything at the apartment is quite self-explanatory!

Checkin at 2pm, checkout at 11am, though I do try to be accommodating with arrival & departure times so let's please coordinate directly.

I'll ask you to please adhere to local recycling rules, and will provide the proper receptacles. NYC takes recycling seriously & issues fines to landlords whose garbage & recycling aren't properly sorted; it's your obligation to adhere to the sorting rules, if not the fine will be applied to your Airbnb security deposit.

You are more than welcome to have a friend or two over and I certainly want you to make yourself at home and have a good time, but please no parties & no strangers.

NO shooting/NO filming.

Enjoy your stay!

Beautiful gracious apartment just seconds walk from the famous view of Manhattan Waterfront - amazing at night. Lots of restaurants nearby and the wonderful East River Ferry.

What a beautiful place! Maya's place is so quirky and beautifully presented. Her place has everything you need and its located a 5 min walk from the subway. The location is excellent and there is lots of hip bars, restaurants and shoes around. It is only a 20 min walk into Williamsburg where the quirky shops, bars and restaurants continue. Maya has kindly left a list of local places to eat, drink and shop - really useful! We spent two days exploring Manhattan which was very easy to get to via subway and one day exploring Brooklyn. On the way to the apartment we used the airtrain and subway to get there which took around 80mins and on the way back got an Uber to save the hassle as we knew we had a long journey home...although traffic was bad (rush hour), and the taxi cost around $50, so looking back, probably would have been better getting the trains again. All in all, we had an excellent time at Maya's place and thank her very much for letting us stay at her beautiful apartment! All the best, Kate and James Brandon x

Lovely apartment - though, as per the description, it's not always a quiet place (though there were street repairs going on while we were there) Really great location - the ferry across to Manhattan is really convenient, but Greenpoint itself is worth spending time in. Maya was really accommodating, and everything ran like clockwork, despite our late arrival. And the map of Greenpoint is really useful and has loads of really nice local eating places and bars - use it!

What a wonderful retreat from downtown manhatten. We loved this appartment -such a large space full of quirky details. Large wooden floorboards, exposed brick walls and lovely little shower room with high quality fixtures and fittings. The appartment is exactly as seen in the pictures. The surrounding area has high quality coffee shops, speciality shops and great bars dispersed among old industrial buildings and residential homes. We loved popping to the local cafe for coffee and pastries. Great view from transmitter park-30second walk away- wonderful at dusk. As our first airbnb experience-this was a Fabulous place-highly recommend!
