About this listing

I've lived in Williamsburg for 10+ years and can help you with all kinds of tips :)
I'm officially registered with the state as "Bridge Seal" B&B; and have hosted over 700 guests since 2012, so you can know that I help you in any way!
I have everything you'll need to make yourselves comfortable and enjoy the space!
--Fresh and clean towels and sheets.

It is a continental breakfast (REALLY good coffee, breads, fruit, cereals & milk, anything you need to make a great start to the day). *Please request this in advance so that I can have things ready for you, upon your arrival.*
**Early check-ins (before 2pm) and late check-outs (after 12 noon) must be arranged ahead of time and approved on a case by case situation. 95% of the time, it's fine.
Who I am:
I am a visual artist with a career in Real Estate. I am also a 3rd generation ceramic artist. There's hand-made pottery all over the space! In a not-so-distant past, I was also a Sommelier at one of the best and most highly rated "farm-to-table" restaurants in Manhattan. True Hospitality and knowing how to make guests feel welcome are things I know so very well :)
My girlfriend is over a lot, but she also has an apartment nearby. She is an amazing jewelry designer (and is a gem, herself:)
And there's the most amazing dog ever, Lono! :) He's a Samoyed/Eskimo mix, so he is very hypoallergenic. I have asthma and he does not affect me at all. He lives in my bedroom or his crate. He has NO access to the guest room! We do encourage guests to interact and play with him, just please do NOT feed him human food!
Whether you are traveling partner, a couple on vacation, someone extending a business trip, or someone looking to host your family while they are visiting you-- I got you :)
During your stay, look forward to pleasant chat around the kitchen table, typically before I leave for work. I can always help you find the best shops, the best food, the best art exhibitions, the best walks, the best cocktails, the quickest subway route, and best insider deals around!
I care about with whom I share my home . A good fit makes your stay amazing and my experience as a host equally rewarding! I always give preference to civilized, pleasant and respectful people. I will not accept inquiries from partiers looking to pound beers at the kitchen table until 4am... I do my fair share of entertaining, but we keep it classy! ;) We may even trade off cooking meals if you're a good cook...!
All together, everyone here is pretty awesome! Every person who's ever stayed here has left with great memories.
All the best and we hope to meet you soon!

We both do a lot of running, so if you are a runner, we have a lot of great routes for you to explore the city and neighborhoods with.
Kara has been a long-time yogi. If you are into yoga, she has a lot of experience with several studios in the neighborhood and Manhattan.
Come and go as you like.
Feel free to say "hi" to neighbors.
Flexible Check-ins & outs are OK, just coordinate with us.
Other than being an AirBnB host, I am a full-time visual artist. I create large-scale, colorful, abstract paintings. My paintings seldom get installed at the house because of their size. I am also a 3rd generation ceramic artist. Much of the cups you will drink from have been made by me or my family!
My day job is as a real estate professional helping buyers and seller in downtown Manhattan and Williamsburg. I work 6 days a week.
My girlfriend is often here, but has an apartment nearby. She's a fantastic jewelry designer.

The prince of the apartment is a 3yr old pup named Lono. He's a special Eskimo/Samoyed mix. He has a hair undercoat, so he is very hypoallergenic. I have Asthma and he does not affect me at all. He sleeps in my bedroom or his crate. He has NO access to the guest room. He loves all people, such a mushy, just please do NOT feed him human food. Everyone falls in love with this little guy. He goes to daycare every weekday from 2-7pm :)
