We are renting a private basement apartment in our home. The apartment has a separate bedroom, private bathroom and kitchenette with mini fridge and coffee maker (there is no stove for cooking). You will have use of a hair dryer. There are small windows in the bedroom and kitchenette area. The bathroom and kitchenette are all newly built. Full size bed sleeps 2 people. We cannot accommodate more than 2 people, sorry! Custom-made artistic details throughout the apartment, including beautiful banister, bench and metal table. Unique concave yellow bathroom tiles were specifically picked out for this space.
This is a great place to stay if you’re looking for grass-roots art and music and cool places off the beaten track. You will not be in the middle of New York’s prettiest architecture and the graffiti on some buildings may seem intimidating but we love it here. We are located in Bushwick, home to a thriving arts community. We are within close walking distance of art galleries, cafes, and nice restaurants and bars such as Tandem, Roberta’s, Dear Bushwick and Northeast Kingdom. Twice a year, Bushwick is home to open studio events that include over 300 artists.
Our house is a 7 min walk to the L train (Jefferson St stop); 15min train ride to Manhattan (East Village and Union Square.) We are also a 5 min walk to the M train (Central Ave stop); 15min train ride to Manhattan (Lower East Side, Soho, West Village, Midtown.) Also 5min ride on either train to Bedford Ave in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. NYC subways run 24hrs/day. We are happy to provide you with directions and recommendations. You will be provided with a map of our favorite places within walking distance.
Wifi and shared use of washer and dryer included.
No smoking. This is a legal rental in our 2 family home. We live in the upstairs apartment. Please send me a message confirming availability and telling me a bit about yourself before booking.
You will have a private bedroom with bathroom and kitchenette. A shared washer/dryer is located at the top of the stairs going to the basement (where your room is located).
I am almost always around to greet you when you arrive. I generally go out of town to visit family twice per year. In that case, a friend would let you in.
Lots of great restaurants, bars, music venues, art galleries and cafes. A city park is just one block away.
We are within 10 min walk to the L train (Jefferson St or Morgan Ave stations) or the M train (Central Ave station). There are also several bus lines, including one right on our street.
Check in is before 10pm. No late-night check in.
Please send me a message before booking. Even though a date is available, it doesn't mean I'm there to let you in if you arrive that day.
No smoking inside; please smoke outside only. Check in before 10pm. Try to be quiet with the front doors. Ask before using the laundry machines and plan to provide your own detergent. Separate recycling from your trash: paper and cardboard are separate from plastic, glass and metal. We appreciate if you take your trash outside in the bins provided. Please do have packages or mail sent to our house.
Enjoy your stay!
Silvia made it easy for us to check into the apartment. This apartment was just two blocks from our daughters and it was quite a comfortable walk, as comfortable as can be in 10 degrees in January winter
I personally met with the owner, she was very sweet and warm. I felt really comfortable staying in her own. Everything was accurate in the description. It is a basement apartment, so there are "basement" sounds. But other than that, it was a great place to stay in Brooklyn.
Silvia's basement apartment was cute, quiet, private, cozy and clean!!! We felt right at home with all of the extras she provided. Let us drop off our bags early, and leave them hours after we checked out. So convenient and overall a great experience. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Nice cozy basement. Great area with good resturants, food store and close to subway stations. Silvia was very nice and there was no problems staying there at all. I would totally recommend this place.
We enjoyed a lot our week at Silvia bassement. The apartment was clean and smart. There is a stair not suitable for elder people. The area is quiet and very close to subway station direct to union square. This is good conection too with JFK airport. Wifi is good and we have no problems there. Thanks a lot for all Silvia!!!!
Conveniently located near the L line. Feels private with own way to get in. Comfy bed.
Me and my sister had wonderful time in Silvia's apartment. She is very warm and kind for us. The basement is enough size for two, very clean, cute and warm!. Easy walk to a few stations(L & M lines) and shops. Washing machine and dryer was very helpful too. Thanks Silvia :)

We are an artist/scientist couple (I'm the scientist, he's the artist) who love travel and new adventures. Now that we have 2 children, we don't get to travel as much, so we let the travelers come to us. We love art, surfing, rock climbing and dance.
