It's absolutely perfect for someone coming to new york for work or studies, internships, etc...

We have an amazing unfinished rooftop. Very typical of nyc/brooklyn apartment buildings. it has an amazing view... when the weather is nice, we like to sit up there with friends and have some drinks and chat. (see pictures)

Please feel free to write to us... ask us any questions you might have, and please let us know a little something about yourself, and the reason for your trip to new york.

When you arrive, we will give you the keys to the apartment...obviously, we allow our guest to come and go as they please, without restrictions. This bedroom is located at the back of the apartment, with a window looking out onto Grand Street (see map). there is plenty of privacy with good/solid old walls and doors, and guests don't feel like they need to tip-toe around if they arrive home late at night.

There is no smoking in the apartment please, however, guests can smoke upstairs on our great, typically New York style rooftop, with a super cool view of the city around you.

Check-in and Check-out:
We provide self check-in via a lock box at the entrance so you can arrive at any time.
We are also flexible with check-out times. If need be, you can even leave your luggage in our office space and continue to explore the city, in case of a late flight out.

Common Rooms:
Our Living-room and Kitchen are "common rooms"... we encourage our guest to make full use of these rooms, ie: relax on our couches with the cats, watch a movie on our big-screen tv, or cook a full meal in our kitchen... in short, we like it when guests make our home their home! ; )

Although there is only one bathroom, there is a separate "shower room" and "toilet"... so much can be accomplished at the same time. Holly and I are quite quick, so we've never had any problems with conflicting needs for bathroom time!

I had a great stay at Gus and Holly's place. The room is really cozy and both of them are super friendly. The area has lots of good connections maximum 5 minutes walk from the apartment. Also there are lots of great bars, restaurants and stores in the area. Even though we were five people sharing the apartment there were never any issues with waiting for the shower or so. The one negative thing is that the window in the room faces a really busy street (Grand St), so it might be a bit loud at times, even during night.

My stay in New York wouldn't have been the same had I stayed alone in an airbnb. Gus and Holly are absolutely amazing and I have found two new friends. I loved my room too, the loft bed is so brilliantly designed. Thanks for having me!

I am a music producer. And my wife is a hair stylist.
We have a very nice apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (very close to Manhattan's East Village), with a spare bedroom.
We're a laid back couple, with 3 fat cats, and we like to keep our place relatively neat and clean. We're respectful of others' privacy, but we also enjoy socializing and good conversation.

We love to cook and eat, and find great restaurants! When we travel, the first thing we think about is where we'll eat, and how we can best explore a country's typical foods.
When we host, we love to share our 15 years of experience in this neighborhood by recommending our favorite spots. We offer a wealth of guides and maps for the area too.

We have a fantastic view from our roof. When the weather's right, one of our favorite things to do is to sit up there with friends, have some drinks, and talk for hours.

We also LOVE to watch good TV shows! some of our current favorites are: Community, Game Of Thrones, Justified, Louie, and Mad Men.
