About this listing
I am offering a studio apartment in Prospect Lefferts Garden, which is just a 5-minute walk to beautiful Prospect Park and just a 7-minute subway ride to Barclays Center.
This is a fairly large studio, and it comfortably fits up to 4 people. There is a fully functioning kitchen, with a microwave and a toaster, as well as a bathroom with a bathtub and shower. The studio includes a full size bed, and a sofa that converts into a queen size bed. There are three sizable closets, and you are more than welcome to use the sheets and towels.
Depending on your comfort level, you will have to share the two beds, if there are 4 of you. If you are a pair, but prefer to sleep separately, the couch is quite comfortable without being unfolded, so it's up to you.
You are free to use most share-able items in the apartment, but I will make sure to give you a thorough run through before I leave. Please do not use personal items, such as toothbrushes, razors and shower sponges. There is a washer and dryer in the building basement, so feel free to use that if the need comes up. You will also be able to use the WiFi, as long as you use your own device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.)
The building is close to the Q (Parkside Ave), B (Prospect Park), 2 and 5 (Winthrop Street) trains, all of which go into Manhattan. It is also very close to Prospect Park, the Botanical Gardens and the Prospect Park Zoo, should you be interested in exploring these parts of Brooklyn.
Interaction with Guests
I will not be present during your stay, but I will make sure to be available by phone or e-mail, should the need arise. I will not always be able to meet you at the apartment, if your check-in time conflicts with my availability. I apologize for that in advance, and I will be sure to include printed instructions and figure out a way to get the apartment keys to you safely.
Prospect Lefferts Gardens is an up and coming neighborhood just east of beautiful Prospect Park. I very much enjoy the people and the culture in this area (primarily West Indian), but am also loving the new spots that have been opening up, like Bluebird, Blessings Cafe and Midwood Flats, all on Flatbush Avenue.
There are 3 subway stations within walking distance, which service the B, Q, 2 and 5 trains.
Other Things to Note
I am not able to honor requests with a late check-in time. Preferred check-in time is usually before 3pm, but I can be flexible until about 6pm. Anything beyond that will not be accepted.
While there is a cleaning fee included in the nightly rate, I do expect you to treat my home with respect. I generally do not hire a cleaning service and do most of the cleaning myself, which takes time, money and energy.
I would prefer that you did not wear your outdoor shoes inside the house. If you've seen some of these Brooklyn streets, you will understand why.
Please do not place duffel bags, suitcases or bags on the couch or bed. If it has touched the subway floor, it does not belong on my furniture.
You are welcome to use share-able bathroom items, such as shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, etc. but please do not use personal items, such as my toothbrush, razor or shower sponge.
Please make sure to clean any extra debris, such as crumbs, grease or hair, that you may have left behind. You are free to use the vacuum in the main area and other cleaning supplies under the bathroom and kitchen sink.
As mentioned above, this is my primary residence, so everything in the apartment belongs to me and is used by me. I make sure to clean everything before and after every guest's arrival, but I still expect a certain level of cleanliness from the people I host.
