The space

The living space is centered around what matters to us, and we hope matters to you: music, cooking, and conversation. The open kitchen is great for shared meals and has a rare asset in Brooklyn: counter space for prep. We are a native New York family and dedicated musicians and so our Steinway baby grand replaces the flat screen TV and has been in our family for three generations. With two small children of our own, we know how tough travel can be and wanted to offer a family friendly environment already stocked with toys, books, and a twin size bunk bed for two. But if you've left the kids at home, there is still plenty of sophistication in the master bedroom with private bath and extra large tub, the duo balconies with french doors and sitting area and modern appliances to host an elegant dinner party.

Guest access

Our home is split into two mirrored halves connected by a private hallway. You'll have complete access and privacy to one half/full apartment, including everything mentioned here: two private balconies.

Interaction with guests

To comply with new Airbnb rules in NY either we or another family member will be staying in our connecting apartment. You'll have the same privacy as advertised but someone will be nearby to help with any issues, repairs, questions etc. We will be available but out of the way unless needed.

The neighbourhood

It doesn't get much better than Williamsburg in the summer. On the southeast side of the neighborhood, you are in the heart of a thriving restaurant scene, boutique retail shopping, and fabulous coffee shops, bars, and bakeries. You are also a few blocks off from the crowd on Bedford but not so far you can't join the street shopping or duck into one-of-a-kind antique shops, Brooklyn only products, and artisanal, hand made gifts great for bringing home--and great live music.

Our condo is also right next door to some neighborhood favorites: The Roebling Tea Room on Metropolitan and Roebling, Walter Foods, Williamsburg's new state of the art cinema, and many other new finds and old secrets that we'll have listed for you in our "Favorites" welcome package.

Getting around

Walking is the best way to see the neighborhood but it's just as easy to flag down a taxi or take the L train just 1 stop into Manhattan. There is also wonderful waterfront shops and the famous Smorgusboard food and art fair on the weekends. From the pier, you can take a ferry into the city or explore Governor's island. The J train is also close by if you're planning on heading into Soho or lower Manhattan.

Other things to note

The Crate & Barrel sofa also folds out to a queen size bed. All linens will be provided.

House Rules

This is our home, and our children's home. We want you to enjoy our space and our neighborhood, but please treat it with respect. Please let us know of any needed repairs or big clean-up jobs, or simply if we need to restock basics while you're on a longer stay.

This is a shared building so please be respectful of our neighbors above and below. We'll be across the hall in the apartment's duplex if you need anything.

Any additional guests arriving mid-trip should be approved first. We want to keep the traffic low for everyone's enjoyment!

Please don't bring the party home or smoke in the apartment.

Housekeeping: please turn off AC unit when you leave apartment.

We were welcomed by Daniel, who was extremely available to fulfil our needs and requests. The apartment is nice, not noisy, plenty of natural light and its description and pictures correspond to the advertisement. The neibourhood seems safe and is plenty of interesing places to eat a bite or have a drink along Bedford avenue. Close supermarkets in the area. This is the ideal place to explore Manhattan in only one subway stop, as is very close to stations of subways J and L. Very easy to be reached from JFK airport, close to Marcy avenue station of subway J.

Feeling like at home! It can seem a not too original comment, but it perfectly describes how we felt being hosted by Daphna and Daniel! They were kind and lovely since we arrived in NYC. Daniel entertained our little daughter once we were preparing her meal! (Just as an example of their hospitality!). The apartment is exactly like described and expected. Very comfortable for 4 adults and a baby. Close to different subway lines that run you in the middle of NYC in 15min! A lot of restaurants, nice bars, supermarket near by have made the journey even more funny and pleasant! We truly recommend staying at Daphna and Daniel's apartment. We'll be back for sure when we'll visit NYC again!

We had a great stay at daphna's. The location was perfect for us! Location was very convenient which made it easy to get around and explore the area. Jenni was very attentive to our needs and responded quickly to any concerns we had. I would definitely recommend this home.

We made a last minute reservation and Jenni who was managing Daphna's place responded very quickly to all our enquiries before and during our stay. She was also very welcoming and attentionate and offered many very good recommendations. The apartment was as described on Airbnb. The baby grand gave a charming touch to the apartment which was conveniently located. On our first night we walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, the view of Manhattan was just fantastic! We also explored the neighborhood and experienced the local culture which was great! Thank you Jenni July 2014

We had a fantastic stay at Daphna's home in Brooklyn. We had plenty of room for our family of four. We explored the surrounding neighborhood and were able to get to Manhattan easily through public transportation. Jenni was great and super responsive for any needs or questions we had. We would definitely come back again!

Daphna's Family Art Loft was a serene, cool, comfortable outpost in the urban jungle. The fluffy towels smelled heavenly, the beds were super-comfortable, and there was fresh ground coffee and local-made jam on the table. Location was convenient to subway and ferry service. So many great shops, eateries, bars nearby. We spent most of our time in Manhattan, but next time will explore the neighborhood. We had a lovely stay, thank you Daphna and "welcome team".
