Quiet, light-filled master BR w/adjoining small BR on 2nd floor of beautiful 1300 square feet 4BR-2Bath 100-year old wood-shingled 4-story w/spacious kitchen, living room & large deck with table for 6 and barbeque on 1st floor. Near F, N/R, restaurants, Prospect Park.

The space

Our home is spacious, cozy and rustic with wide wood plank floors in the downstairs common space, bathroom #1, kitchen opening out onto the dining room and living room, Our deck off the dining room has table for 6, lounge chair and barbeque.

On the 2nd floor is bathroom #2 with spacious light-filled shower; the 2 adjoining bedrooms you will stay in and the two bedrooms of my wonderful housemates (Daniele, age 42, social impact entrepreneur from Italy and Brian, acupuncturist in training); and a study area. Please note - you will have private bedrooms in a shared home. I will be on vacation but my housemates Daniele and Brian will most likely be around. That said, our home has plenty of space and I have a lot of time to myself when I want it.

Guest access

You will have access to the whole common space, including kitchen, and back deck and your two bedrooms. You will have guest access to our WIFI.

Interaction with guests

I will be on vacation when you are here. You will be staying with my housemates, Daniele and Brian, who each have a room at the front of the house. They will be social when they are not working! Depending on what time you arrive, one of my housemates or another friend in the neighborhood will show you around our home!

Other things to note

Most people who visit us - whether friends or Airbnb guests, say that our home is very cozy yet spacious, warm, inviting and comfortable. That said, it's not like a hotel. Think of it like a good friend's home that is really clean!

This place is a gem and a great find for guests who wants to sight-see New York and then retreat to a quiet home for some downtime; to stay near family in Park Slope; to come for business but want to feel at home.

Vanessa was a great host. Although we did not see her in person, she was very helpful. The location of her house is great - very close to the shops, restaurants, and coffees in Park Slope. The house and rooms are older than they look like in the photos. The cleaning of the bathroom and the rooms was moderate. In total, we had a good experience in Vanessa's place.

Stayed at Vanessa's after my plans had changed and I needed a place for a few days. Nice set up in a good location just off the trains. Nice large bedroom, good sized shower, comfy bed and nice-sized deck in the back. Housemates were friendly and we got along just fine. I just used the main bedroom but the second room has bunk beds for those traveling with kids. Good place for an independent traveler or a couple wanting to experience life in Brooklyn

Vanessa's flat is wonderful and wonderfully located in a quiet street just a few minutes away from 7th Ave. Breakfast on her quiet and green terrace was a great start to the day, and we slept really well at night (no traffic noises at all). The communal kitchen/living room is a nice place to hang out and chat with her friendly (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). We really recommend it.

We can definitely recommend this place, the rooms were comfortable (as described), and the appartment's location is very quiet yet close enough to Manhattan. Communication with the hosts was uncomplicated and e-mails were answered promptly.

I spent 5 days together with my teenage daughter at Vanessas place and we both enjoyed it very much. Vanessa is a very thoughtful and warmhearted host, same her two boys.

I'm from northern California and went to UC Berkeley. I love the cultural opportunities in New York City, especially the outdoor concerts, theatre, and movies during the summer months.
