Description

Apartment in vintage 1840 townhouse, near the East River. All newly renovated, kitchen and tile bath with tub and shower, has original dark hardwood floors.

There is a library/study area, nice sized living room (which accommodates a good quality raised inflatable queen bed if needed), and a bedroom with a new queen bed. Windows on 4 sides, for lots of fresh air, very secure, yet near all the Williamsburg activity! Absolutely no smoking in the apartment or building.

One of the great things about this apartment is its ':walk-ability'. It sits in the middle of a vibrant, international village, and you can go anywhere or get anything - on foot, or with a car that will affordably pick you up in 5 minutes and take you anywhere. But when you are at home, it is quiet and restful, and feels like the country - at least, to New Yorkers!

Transportation, area info:
Transportation is very close: Short walk to the ''L'' train or ''JMZ'' trains - then 5 minutes to Manhattan, the ferry is a 2-minute walk, buses, and car service arrives on call in 3 minutes to take you to Manhattan in 10 minutes, $10.

We are nearly always available with info and local tips, and the house and the neighborhood are safe and friendly, and the apartment is extremely quiet and secure. Maximum occupancy 2 or by special arrangement, minimum stay 3 days, $100 cleaning fee, and security deposit required in advance. Absolutely no smoking, in consideration of other guests. Please send me an email to confirm availability and let me know about you, and any special needs you may have, before booking...

Please note: excellent New York credentials and references available, also California, Amsterdam, and Munich references available. "All info and photographs of this property © M. LeBlanc 2016" Keywords: apartment

About the Owner

About Minnette LeBlanc, Owner, Miu Wong, Bookkeeper
Developing and brokering new restaurant, club and music venues in Williamsburg, and retail and commercial real estate in Brooklyn; classical singer, fine art dealer; knowledge of German language and culture; frequent traveler to California and Europe.

Minnette LeBlanc, Owner, Miu Wong, Bookkeeper purchased this Apartment in 1988

Why Minnette LeBlanc, Owner, Miu Wong, Bookkeeper chose Brooklyn
This is a large house for the City, but the sun, nearby East River air and gardens make it feel like the country. After living in Tribeca, Manhattan, I felt as though I bought the gardens and the house came with them. I live and work in the building and one floor is often available for guests. It is quiet for New York, restful, out of the way and private - and 2 blocks away from everything!

What makes this Apartment unique
Fresh breeze drifts in from the river - there are actually windows on all 4 sides! The garden is full of the scent of roses, lilies, honeysuckle, violets, lavender and herbs just outside the windows. ....It's great to walk around the corner early in the morning for newspapers, cappuccino and home made croissants, and sit at sidewalk cafe tables and meet the locals!

Three nights in New York

Minnette is a wonderful hostess and was very warm and accommodating. She is a joy to know.
The apartment is spacious, homey, well equipped, light and airy. It is clean and has character.
There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby and the kitchen is fit for preparing any sort of meal.
All points in the city are easily accessible by train or ferry.
Minnette also has friends in the car business that are friendly, reliable, and reasonably priced. A great benefit for travel to the airport with luggage.
We are 100% satisfied with our stay!

NYC visit

We stayed in this flat for two weeks on holiday. Minnette was consistently prompt and helpful with communication, before and during our stay. We found the location convenient - we spent time around Brooklyn, in Manhattan, and in Queens. Transport was readily accessible; we used the bus, subway, water taxi, and walked a lot. There are many good restaurants, bars, and shops nearby. We note the noise, as others have mentioned; we wound up sleeping in the living room, which worked for us. Running a fan helped as well (for background noise). One very small suggestion: a full-length mirror in the flat. Overall, we enjoyed our stay thoroughly and would recommend the flat. Thank you!

Lovely place, felt like home

Minnette was wonderfully responsive, the apartment has 3 beds with a certain amount of privacy so that suited our 3 generations of women well.

Fabulous place and location

Our family of 4 with two college sons had a wonderful stay here! Plenty of beds, a king, full/queen and twin, all situated with their own space. The apt is clean and spacious and the location is amazing! We walked all over Williamsburg. We took the South Williamsburg water ferry to Manhattan many days. $2.75 each way and so relaxing and enjoyable! Minnette was quickly reachable and attentive to details. We highly recommend this VRBO!

Vibrant Williamsburg Location/Easy Access To Manhattan

I loved this place! The drone of the bridge/train was soothing and the room lay out made one feel you could escape from the other, with its large dining area space. I called my bed by the book case, "The Elfin Corner". It was an easy walk to the East River Ferry.

As expected

This is an older house with older house problems (setting off the breaker, random lights not working). But we liked the idea of an older house. It is beautiful. And no problem interfered with or lessened our stay. The air conditioner kept it cool during a heat wave. Would have liked an air conditioner for the bedroom, but ended up not sleeping there anyways, due to the noise. I had read reviews in advance and knew this room would be noisy, yet I STILL forgot my ear plugs :( there are two beds in the living room, and it is surprisingly quiet there.
It is close to the subway, so you can get pretty much anywhere from here. Lovely street art all around. Felt like a safe neighborhood.
There is a wonderful Italian restaurant nearby, can’t remember the name but it is a suggestion by the owner. The best view ever. Wonderful service and food.
