About this listing

I believe the name speaks for itself. Along with a wide array of continued support and effort on my behalf to ensure that your stay was great, I know that the location itself is a warm and welcoming environment. Even without my long list of reviews (which is missing about 60 or more, due to not reminding the guests, and my schedule), I know that my hard work and the list of information that I provide, helps to make your stay much more smoother.

The space

Directly Across the street from Prospect Park, around the corner from Botanical Gardens and Brooklyn Museum, up the hill from the famous new Barclay Center as well as the Brooklyn Public Library.

This Spacious location has all the upgrades you can imagine. Completely renovated and designed for comfort and privacy. Hardwood floors, Suede look sofa, new kitchen, renovated bathroom, with upscale accessories, modern conveniences. Bedroom & Livingroom Air-conditioning, Coffee maker, Juicer, WiFi, Cable, Netflix, HBO, Hulu,DvD, Microwave, Oven, Toaster, Hair-dryers, etc. This place was completely remodeled.

A one bedroom with a spacious livingroom that easily converts into a second large bedroom. The livingroom has a super high-rise queen size air-mattress with wired remote comfort adjustable air support (compare).
Or, if thats not enough the large livingroom also has a futon mid-size (for one or two additional guests), sofa convert, for those nights that you just want to flob down and pass out.

The large bedroom has a 12" thick real bed. There's a state of the art bathroom and newly renovated kitchen- (Full Private Apartment, -not a share) You will love to wake up across the street from Prospect Park in the spring, summer and fall months, to the sounds of birds chirping, the smell of warm fresh air of trees, plants and flowers; or in the winter month it is a very cozy hideaway with quick/ immediate access to public transportation that can zip you to the city in minutes.

This is a very upscale community, safe environment. With all the attractions that Brooklyn and Manhattan has to offer, you will probably never be home.
Visit Prospect Park Zoo, Botanical Gardens, the famous Brooklyn Public Library, the Brooklyn Museum all minutes away by walking. Go Downtown by bus or train and visit the world famous Junior's Cheese Cake Restaurant or the new Barclay Entertainment Center while you shop. Hop on the train and in minutes you are at Wall Street, SoHo or stay on the train and get off at Times Square. Book during the holidays and see all the celebrities that come out during the Macy's Day Parade or watch the ball drop on New Years Eve.

As of 5/2013 the place has been painted all white as requested by returning guests.

The list of Broadway Plays are phenomenal and the daily events or experiences that New York City has to offer are limitless.

Hop back on the train and your home to wine-down and relax in a safe a relaxing atmosphere and begin your next venture for tomorrow. Either way I know you will be back. Please remember to give a review of your experience in my place so that others will continue to book far in advance. You can't beat the price or the location. It's like living across from Central Park just without all the backed-up traffic noise and crowded streets. Have all the luxuries of NYC and Brooklyn combined.

Interaction with guests

My relationship with my guests is a very important part of my experience with Airbnb. I go out of my way to see that my guests are either satisfied with the arrangements or comfortable, and or both. If your read the reviews you will see that I've made myself available 1, 2, 3, 4, and even 5:am in the morning. With a 99% satisfaction rate i had to realize that I can't make everyone happy, but that doesn't mean I can't keep turning.

Other things to note

Overall I have a good heart. Sometime people try to take advantage of it. I have beautiful children so I am blessed. And I have, what I believe, is a great sense of humor.

We enjoyed our stay at Kevin's. He gave us a friendly welcome and the water and beer left for our first night was gratefully received. First impressions of the area weren't fantastic but it is fine and gives a little insight into life outside manhattan. It is a safe area and the apartment is close to 2 subway stops which give easy access to manhattan. The apartment itself was clean and accommodated our family of 5 including 3 teens quite well. Prospect Park was fantastic for ice skating (just $12 a person including skates) and the cafe there was great. Overall good value for money.

The place may have seemed to big for just a couple, but that's better than being too small. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and I'm really glad that I was able to help you at the last minute, Kevin

Same Gabe. I don't think your friends really realize how much of a great guy you are. I wish I had time to show you and a buddy or two, great places in NYC. Maybe in the future. Thanks for being a great guest.

Kevin User Profile

School Teacher, Therapeutic Counselor, former Social Worker and father to 6 kids, 3 are Police officers, 1 is an F.B.I. agent, and 1 is just spoiled, but I didnt do it. Im a family man and community worker / recreational event organizer. Love to have fun, very much a peoples person. Enjoy seeing people having fun. I love kids and making long lasting friendships/ relationships. I'm a very good cook. I enjoy cooking and eating. I like exercising regularly and training people on how to condition their bodies. I have a full entertainment system so now I'm more of a family (stay in) man. I volunteer youth empowerment and personal development programs services at a local recreation center. Don't find the time to travel much anymore or as much as I use to, but favorite place was the Bahamas. When my oldest son was in the military, I often found my home to be the place for five or six of his friends to stay, for the holidays. I would take guys that never been to NYC, on my famous tours. I would make them a big breakfast to start the morning. Now I have kids from all over the U.S. that calls me pops.
