About this listing
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.

Khalid was incredibly accommodating to my schedule - which I appreciated very much. The apartment is located in a very convenient part of Ft Greene / Clinton Hill which suited my travels needs perfectly. The whole experience was super easy - thanks Khalid!
Khalid was an excellent host and the space was wonderful-just perfect for two people. The spot is close to multiple trains that took us everywhere we wanted to go and walking distance from great restaurants. The apartment was clean and comfortable and Khalid was extremely kind and helpful. Great place to have a true Brooklyn experience!
Khalid is an awesome host and his place is very cosy. It is located in a nice neighborhood with old brownstone houses. Staying here you will have everything you need in the vicinity: subway, shops, cafes etc.
We also liked Khalid's paintings which adorn the walls of the apartment. The place is clean and comfortable. By all means it is a nice place to stay NYC, and we will definitely stay here again should an opportunity to visit NYC arise once more.
This was the perfect place to stay. Khalid was flexible with meeting me to collect the keys and provided great recommendations for things to do in the neighborhood. The apartment is as pictured, clean, smallish but with everything you need to be comfortable and even prepare a few meals (if you don't want to try any of the dozen great restaurants within a few blocks radius). It's a block from the C line, which is convenient to get into Manhattan and especially for transit to/from Penn Station, but note that with only one train stopping at the station you're likely to wait a bit as the express trains pass by.
Khalid accommdated us in every way! The place was exactly as was listed! Great neighborhood! Clise to everything I love about Brooklyn! We felt welcome and informed! Due to a death in my family I made a request for an extension in my stay. Khalid was sensitive, sympathetic and accommodating! I would certainly recommend this location to others
Khalid's place was exactly as described and pictured. Clean, convenient to Manhattan via the C train) which is literally steps away from the apartment building), and perfect for my needs. Everything a single person or traveling couple could possibly need and located in the heart of Clinton Hill, one of NYC's most beautiful brownstone neighborhoods. Khalid, himself, is kind and very quick to respond to texts and emails. I would highly recommend Khalid's apartment and will stay again when the opportunity arises.
It was an awesome apartment in the best location. The host was fun, helpful and full of ideas and advice on what to do where.
About the Host, Khalid
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!
