Newly renovated and spacious 1-bedroom apartment in the basement of a 1920s rowhouse, with both private entrance and access to backyard. It has a comfortable bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen with gas stove and full-sized fridge, and a laundry room with washer and gas dryer. Located in a family-oriented but vibrant Brooklyn neighborhood, with plenty of stores and too many restaurants and bars to count. 3 blocks from a subway stop and 5 blocks from an express bus stop (20 min to Manhattan).
The apartment can accommodate up to 5 guests (for an extra charge of $20 for the 5th guest). There is a queen size bed in the bedroom and a queen size sofa bed in the living room. There is also a folding bed (single) available on demand.
The guests have exclusive use of the entire apartment, as well as access to the backyard, which is shared.
I am a 45-year-old translator and interpreter from Peru, married to a university professor from Uruguay. We moved to New York in 1999, and we have two kids, ages 12 and 7. We have lived in Queens, Manhattan, and Brooklyn, and would love to share our knowledge and passion for New York with any guests that want to stay at our home.
