Hello! I'm renting a large private guest room in a two bedroom loft. It's located in the best part of trendy Williamsburg, Brooklyn – 3 blocks from the Bedford L subway stop, between North 8th and 9th Streets. It's on the 2nd floor of a beautifully maintained, safe loft building that used to be a shirt factory - it has a lot of the unique, real loft building-type detail.
This space is also occupied by me - I'm an interior designer. It's a great for both couples or for people traveling on their own.
Your bedroom: a minimally and tastefully furnished private room with a very comfortable (real) bed. It's located on the opposite end of the 1000 sq ft space from the second bedroom. There are double doors, also with a drape in front of them for privacy and a window above.
-Closets with shelving & sheets, towels
-Track lights, bedside lamp on dimmers
-Huge roof deck, views of Williamsburg Bridge and Manhattan
-Best Williamsburg location- 5 minute walk from Bedford L, 1 stop to East Village (see below), in the middle of all the neighborhood's cool and unique restaurants, bars, music venues
-Easy street parking
The location: When you're going somewhere for a short time, I've always felt that location definitely can make all the difference in how much you enjoy your stay. The Bedford L stop (on North 7th & Bedford Ave) is the main subway station in the heart of Williamsburg - it's one stop, about 5 minutes away from Manhattan's East Village, and 3 stops from Union Square (the center of downtown Manhattan where most trains connect).
You can see the river when you walk out the front door. There's a beautiful park with picnic tables, outdoor concerts, an outdoor flea market and farmer's market with incredibly good food, & a ferry that goes back and forth to Manhattan every 20 minutes – all just a block or two away. It seems like lot of people who come to stay in Williamsburg end up hardly even leaving here! In short, this location is pretty perfect. I look forward to answering any questions.
Thank you! Christina

Hi, I'm Christina and I look forward to meeting you!
I'm also looking forward to helping make your stay fantastic. I'm an interior designer – and previously worked in management consulting and advertising. I'm really into good food and wine, also love yoga, running and meeting new people. Je parle francias couramment, hablo espanol tambien! I've lived in NYC for about 11 years, so I know Brooklyn and Manhattan well. I'd be happy to be your resource for whatever you want to know or do. Or leave you totally alone - whatever you prefer.
I've lived in Paris for 5 years, Madrid for a year and traveled quite a lot, all over Europe, SE Asia, Australia, South America (one of my best friends lives in Colombia) – so I have a pretty good idea of what works and doesn't when you are away from home! Happy travels. Christina
