(See our MANY reviews for our specific rooms. We're usually here so renting out the whole apt is new for us.) You'll love it! One of Brooklyn's best areas! 6 blocks from Prospect Park; train around the corner, 15 min's to Manhattan. Beautiful tree-lined block in quiet residential area; restaurants/shops within 1 block. Spacious 2-level apt. 3 BD + futon in dining room. Large living room, piano & African & Caribbean art. Big patio, grill & large landscaped garden! Full kitchen, washer/dryer.
[Note: this listing is for specific times in July/Aug & November/December of 2017. The July slot is a bit higher rate & has a minimum of 7 nights; the other times are a bit more flexible.]
Location location location! Gorgeous 3 BD apt (see pics) in beautiful brownstone in perfect vacation location! Brooklyn is THE place to be - and this gorgeous, wonderfully safe, tree-lined block is incredibly convenient (surrounded by wonderful restaurants; 1.5 blocks from train with 15 minute ride to 14th Street; 2 blocks from 7th & Flatbush, 5 blocks from new Nets Stadium, 5 minute walk into the heart of Park Slope; 6 blocks from Prospect Park/Grand Army Plaza/Bklyn Museum). Features: old-world charm (hardwood floors, molding, French doors, ...); African/Caribbean art; tuned piano; gorgeous large garden plus large deck; nice-sized kitchen with gas stove (cook & save big $$ in NY, and eat on the lovely patio!); washer/dryer; Wifi but no cable tv...) Note: air-conditioning is box unit in the master bedroom, not central throughout - but many windows & fans, & "brownstone" houses generally stay quite cool (with the shades drawn).
Pricing: rates vary by date so please see the calendar; & it includes considerable discount for 7 days & even more for 30 days.
Must have excellent references and if you don't have much in your AirBnB bio or reviews, please tell us more about yourself. Max 6 people. Sorry but no pets (firm). Note: I will be traveling during this time but my agent will stop by periodically and be available for any concerns that may arise.
**Please note to use "Contact Host" and not "Book It" - for reasons noted in the Host/(URL HIDDEN)
I usually rent out just one or a couple of rooms while I am here; so see my other listings for more than 100 great reviews over time (many of them quite glowing). Pls see them under Host/Profile. (And on-line - not the phone app - you can see Host responses.)
Some further detail is listed below and other general information - regarding me, the house, the location, guest expectations, etc. - is listed under Host/Profile. **And note that if you rent the entire duplex, then the individual room listings will of course be immediately turned off, as you would have exclusive access here.
About the Bedrooms:
BD#1: Big sunny, spacious room (20sf x12sf); full-sized bed; quiet; 2 windows (overlooking backyard); hardwood floors; your own entrance to full BA (shared).
BD#2: Also big sunny spacious room with THREE windows (overlooking the front of the house but quiet street with trees immediately outside window); queen-sized bed; hardwood floors; **own 1/2 bath.
BD#3: small room with window overlooking back garden; mattress on floor.
(Note also that the big beautiful dining room has a full-sized futon that can also sleep 2, with french doors opening directly on the back deck/patio overlooking the garden)
Again, information on the general house structure is under Host/Profile.
Thanks! And we look forward to hosting you!! :)
Everything! Kitchen ... back patio .. back yard ... washer/dryer
I have wonderful tenants in the garden apartment below - a very sweet couple with a great small lovable dog ("Clint"). (They have their own separate entrance from the street so you won't have any interaction with them unless you want to say hi ... or bump into them in the backyard which everyone shares.)
As noted in description. Normal. Please note the limitation on "guests", i.e. the only people ever sleeping in the apartment should be those listed (max 6) in the initial agreement.
I will be traveling for most of this time but a caretaker will be stopping in and/or available. Plus, I send very detailed notes about the house and about things to do around the neighborhood, Brooklyn & NYC! You'll have a blast!
Thanks for your interest! Please know that since we are opening our house to people, we require a bio posted (in the AirBnb bio section), as it adds a bit more accountability, especially if you don't have reviews. For same-day inquiries, streamline the communications process by providing full info upfront - including your estimated arrival time (since we may be changing our plans to accommodate you). And know that after confirmation, we will need rapid response with a personal email for us to send arrival details and important house information. You may arrive ANY TIME - key is kept in lockbox for which you'll get a code. Okay, now about us and the house ...
We welcome all - regardless of race, sexual identity, religion - who come with an open heart. Our home is an 1865 classical "brownstone" townhouse, in the midst of the idyllic Prospect Heights neighborhood (3 blocks from Park Slope) - offering a wide variety of restaurants within one half block away, the subway around the corner (only a 15 minute ride into Manhattan), the Barclays/Nets Stadium 4 blocks away in one direction, and Prospect Park/Museum/Library 6 blocks in the other. Our AirBnb space is usually just for 1 room in our middle duplex (there's a garden apartment below and top floor full apartment with regular, long-term renters), but sometimes we make 1 or 2 other rooms available if we are traveling or for just 1 or 2 nights. There is 1 full bathroom that is shared, plus another half bathroom used by me and my teenage daughter (yes, that's an old pic - but she's still just as cute!). The house is full of art (nothing fancy, mainly folk art) - primarily from Africa, South Pacific and the Caribbean - plus a piano and some other instruments. We keep it organized and clean but it is a working house, with us up and moving around between the hours of 7am and 11pm; but overall it is quiet, especially for the main guest bedroom which faces our lovely large back deck and garden that guests are most welcomed to utilize. Note that more detailed descriptions of each room come under the listings. .... Again, thanks for your interest! (Regarding parking: the entire street is open parking for anyone. But Monday to Friday in the morning is "alternate side" parking for the street cleaning, during which you are allowed to double-park as long as you move it by 8:30 and then park it correctly just after 10; and this can get crowded. So you will either need time the night before to look for a spot on the correct side of the street, or you will need time in the morning to move your car and then move it again at 10. Note that in general you really do NOT need or want a car in NY, especially in this neighborhood with trains being so close!) [updated Nov '17]
