The Space

This cozy studio apartment sits square in the center of Brooklyn coolness. Not a big space, but the location more than makes up for that. Its located on the border of Fort Greene and Clinton Hill.

The studio is fully furnished and ready to go with free wifi, flat screen TV and Bluray, APPLE TV. It accommodates 2 people with a full sized bed as well as an additional twin sized mattress if necessary. Private kitchen and bath with microwave and toaster. Free use of bicycle with U-lock included. I provide you also with fresh linens, towels, tea kettle, hair dryer, soap and shampoo.

In addition to many other cool stuff (designer here), my book collection contains several guides in and outside NYC, whether you need city guides, neighborhood guides, gay guides, walking tours, or day trips out of NYC without a car.

All in all this is an area and home of reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the big city, while only being steps away.

Interaction with Guests

I won't be staying there with you but easily reachable by phone or email.

Check In
  • Khalid's apartment was fabulous and we would definitely stay here again. Not only was it immaculate and extremely clean, but it had a wonderful style to it that made it very funky and cool. Khalid himself was also lovely - offering loads of great advice about the surrounding area, maps and books to help us get around and he even left us a little welcome snack! He was also really flexible in terms of meeting us with the keys (we kept changing the time!) and letting us have a late check-out because no-one else was checking in that day. Best of all was the area - SO close to many great cafes, restaurants, Brooklyn flea market and Forte Greene Farmers Market on Saturday and only a couple of minutes walk to the subway line that takes you straight into Manhattan. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Khalid!

  • Very good at returning answers to any of our questions, Khalid was caring about our well being and was available almost any time by mail. Khalid was present in the appartment when we arrived. He made sure we had eveything we would need and told us a lot about the neighborhood and transportation means. The lodging is quite well located and practical for two people. It is clean and the decoration very unique.

  • Khalid's flat was the perfect location for us to begin exploring Brooklyn and Manhattan - easy access to subway stations, good restaurants and grocery stores nearby, and a comfortable flat to return to after a long day of sightseeing. We had no problems meeting Khalid for the key, and he was very helpful getting us acclimated to the neighborhood. A nice fella!

  • What a great stay! My wife and I were in Brooklyn for the first time for a wedding. Khalid's studio was very clean and full of cool art. Khalid was really friendly and provided us with guidebooks and even a hand-drawn map of the neighborhood, with restaurant suggestions, grocery stores, etc. The neighborhood is wonderful, with plenty to walk to like the Barclay Center, Botanic Garden, and lots of restaurants. It was easy to jump on the train to Manhattan and Williamsburg (which we did). We would definitely recommend Khalid's place to future visitors.

  • We've just spend 10 days in Khalid's flat. The flat was very cosy and comfortbable, small but with all you need for your stay. Khalid welcomed us greatly and answered all our questions during our holiday. The flat is located in a quiet area, next to different subways (to go to Manhattan...) and many bars and restaurants. Sure we'll go back again ! M&B

  • A great , little, clean, quiet apartment on a good location .
    Khalid was very helpful and friendly. (Helpfull too with getting back our E-reader wich we left in the apartment.) The studio is perfect located: 2 minutes from the C Train (Clinton/Washington). The place was clean. There is a good natural foodstore close M La Fayette
    A bit small bed for two... ( good bathroom, kitchenette, wifi, tv, etc).
    We surely will keep good memories of our stay in Brooklyn!

  • We can wholeheartedly recommend staying at Khalid's appartment. From the first message on he was very friendly and welcoming. When we arrived at his place he had even shopped some groceries for us to make us feel at home right on. Which we did. The place was very clean and cozy. And the best: it is located about 100 meter away from the next subway station, from where the C train takes you all over Manhattan or to other parts in Brooklyn. If we went to NYC again, we would definetely stay at his place again. Thank you Khalid!

  • Great little apartment for my wife and me. We were visiting our kids nearby, and needed a place to stay due to a remodel that was starting in their house. Khalid made it easy. Everything was as promised. He gets our highest recommendation.

Pratt Institute
Hi, I'm originally from Virginia, but came here to study Architecture at Pratt Institute. I've been living here in the neighborhood for the past 15 years, and stayed in the area because I love it so much. I also make fine art on the side (mostly painting) as a hobby, which will be immediately evident when entering the space. I'm a very down to earth and easy-going guy, and here to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible. Thanks for visiting!
