This is a convertible guest room that is available select dates seasonally.
We have a flexible setup with a fantastic Queen bed, plus a deluxe airbed to accommodate up to three adults.
The room and the apartment are tidy, and very comfortable with hardwood floors and lots of extras including breakfast, laundry, full use of a gorgeous kitchen, access to our large backyard and a home theater with 10 foot HD projection screen.
Kitchen & Meals:
Your room is right next to our modern kitchen. Weekdays we offer a hot breakfast plus self-serve options that work with any schedule.
On weekends we serve a relaxed brunch, and you can eat either in the dining room or, weather permitting, in our backyard garden/patio.
High Speed WiFi with multiple access points to assure a great connection throughout the apartment. Network printer and other business services also included so you can print a boarding pass or an important document.
The living room is yours to share. You're welcome to take advantage of the home theater evenings, though during the week we'll probably ask you to wear headphones.
The building is bicycle friendly, and guests can rent one of three bicycles (1 road bike-kinda expensive, we have to work out a security deposit- and 2 'urban outfitted' mountain bikes) for exploring. Please give advanced notice if you'd like to use them. The rent is nominal, just enough to cover maintenance.
Musicians of any caliber may use a new Yamaha electric keyboard suitable for practice or composition (with (URL HIDDEN) unscheduled performances please).
Use our basement machines or we'll happily do your laundry for you, no charge. We can also direct you to great dry-cleaners.
The bathroom isn't brand new but it's pristine and has excellent hot water and water pressure.

I'm a tech entrepreneur taking an extended break from business travel. I loves to meet people and provide great services. I'm also an avid cook and vegetable gardener, and enjoy offering guests a complete "harvest to table" experience here at home.
I have been a 100,000+ miles per year traveler (business + bicycle touring) for most of my adult life and I see hosting on AirBnB as a rewarding activity that lets me use my knowledge and my hobbies to help visitors get the most out of their stay.
My cousin Tania upstairs is also an AirBnB host. When Tania's not traveling she's my backup for helping out our guests (and vice versa).
After almost 25 years in the neighborhood and about the same number as an experienced business and holiday traveller, I'm keen to be a resource for you. If you forget something, from a toothbrush or umbrella to a phone charger or video adapter for a presentation, ask if we've got one you can have or borrow! No extra charge
Our building, with four hosted Airbnb apartments, and five hosts working as a team is a unique arrangement: a true cooperative of Airbnb hosts pooling resources for the benefit of our guests and for the community.
I own the building, an 1893 Brooklyn Brownstone and live in the garden apartment. My cousin Tania, on the 2nd floor, and my 3rd and 4th floor tenants/friends all host with Airbnb, and we work together as a team.
We share many responsibilities, and provide services we could never offer to guests as individuals, yet each apartment here has its own character:
-My garden apartment is the Brooklyn&Breakfast hub. It's where we cook and serve breakfast for ALL hosts' guests every morning, w/ choices for everyone from paleo-carnivore to vegan. This includes a leisurely Sunday Brunch with many homemade choices and a chance to meet fascinating guests from around the world.
The apartment has three lovely guest rooms plus many common areas, with garden/backyard access during the warm months. I live in the finished side of the lower (English Basement) level of the duplex; the other side is where we do laundry, keep supplies, and provide extra storage for some of our guests. There is also a 12-month indoor-garden for fresh herbs & micro-greens year round.
-My cousin Tania's newly renovated 2nd floor a offers the most privacy, and it's almost like renting a whole 1200 sq feet (105 sq meters) apartment
-Our cohosts Tom & Jordan's 3rd floor apartment has two guest rooms, a comfortable living room/dining room common space, and more;
-Ed & Tiffani, (+ sometimes Ed's daughter from a previous marriage) are the 4th floor hosts. Ed, an old friend, has been an Airbnb host in different homes for several years. He's a contractor and a big part of his contribution is making slow-but-steady building improvements, from better soundproofing guest-rooms, to repainting the hallways, and lots more. Tiffani also assists Len with Brooklyn&Breakfast's large backyard garden which, many months of the year, supplies food for breakfast and other meals. During those same months, guests from all four of our hosts' apartments have access to the backyard as well.
DIY laundry and/or laundry service is available in all four apartments
Brooklyn&Breakfast is mostly a labor of love, and it's also a little bit of a social statement:
We aim to demonstrate an alternative model for home sharing that can provide guests with a level of services closer to (and often surpassing) a true B&B or hotel, albeit with a more relaxed, 'mi casa es tu casa' flavor.
A stay at Brooklyn&Breakfast is not like renting a spare room or someone else's empty home while they're away, but neither is it anything like the growing number of dubiously-legal Aibnb quasi-hotels. By keeping rents affordable for long-term tenants, and taking pride in our neighborhood and in Brooklyn, we believe we're a small force against too-rapid gentrification.
If you have any questions, please contact us by sending us a message here.
Like most of New York City, Prospect Heights offers limited street parking. We can direct you to local parking lots. Parking in prime Brownstone Brooklyn is pricy compared to many cities but a bargain compared to Manhattan.
You're sharing my home. I'm the owner of this four family Brownstone and expect you'll behave as responsibly as you would in your own house or apartment.
When we serve breakfast it's "full service," and I'll do your dishes and keep your water glass full. ;-)
When you use the kitchen or grab breakfast self-serve please take care of your dishes. And if you eat in your room or the living room be careful and clean up. No crumbs, we don't want pests.
Absolutely No Smoking In the Apartment. If you are a smoker, you're welcome to smoke in the backyard depending on time of day--or in front on the stoop like an authentic Brooklynite--so long as you are considerate of others and NEVER leave cigarette butts behind.
