Brooklyn's finest! Prime location: steps away from Park Slope, Ft. Greene, Bourem Hill, and Prospect Heights. Midtown only 15 minutes away. Oh yeah… the apartment is sweet!
This listing is for Bedroom #1 in a three bedroom (mine, yours, and another airbnb room) located on the second floor of Brooklyn walk up brownstone. If you want separate beds or if there is more than two in your party, you will have to also reserve Bedroom #2.
Bedroom #1 is located in the back- cozy, quiet, overlooks trees and a yard. Enjoy a peaceful night’s rest in a fresh, comfortable, full size bed. There is hanging, cabinet, and storage space for your things. But pack light- there is a washer and dryer in the basement.
You’ll share a large, sunlit bathroom (one towel per guest provided) with me- your super clean host. Enjoy the company of guests in Bedroom #2 in the living room and fully stocked, newly renovated eat-in kitchen; coffee and tea provided. You can also cook whatever you like any time you like. Several grocery options are available within a five minute walk from the front door. But don’t forget! You are in one of the food capitals of the world- every delectable cuisine is at your finger-tips.
This apartment is located in the heart of the coolest, walkable Brooklyn neighborhoods: Park Slope, Bourem Hill, Fort Greene, and Clinton Hill. Catch a Brooklyn Nets basketball game or concert at the newly constructed Barclays Center, (website hidden). Enjoy the arts? BAM, (website hidden), always has something spectacular. Ride a Citibike, (website hidden), to Prospect Park, (website hidden), for a picnic or free outdoor concert or take in the beauty at Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, (website hidden).
Manhattan? No matter where you want to go- that subway stops at Atlantic/Barclays- only three short blocks away! You’ll be at the World Trade Center in 10 minutes or Times Square in 20. Feeling adventurous? Rent a Citibik (there is a station two blocks away) and ride it across any of the bridges into the city. Want to go to the beach? Hop on the LIRR to Long Beach or take the $2 van to the Rockaways. Public transportation options to all airports are available.
I value the experience of travel and meeting people from all over the world. Please join me and other guests in your new experience in NYC!
11 subway lines converge only a 3 minute walk away. NQBD are express and skip all of downtown Manhattan, getting you to Times Square in only 15 min. 2345CR are also great! Take the G to hip Williamsburg!
LIRR to and from JFK easy and fast!
Keep the street off your feet. Kindly remove your shoes before entering the apartment and place them in the shoe bin.
Keep kitchen clean. Hand wash pans and cooking utensils. Place pre-rinsed dishes, cutlery, and glasses in dishwasher. Place a paper towel over microwaved items to prevent splashing. Place trash in appropriate bins.
Clean up your bathroom mess, i.e. the toilet rim and hair sitting on the drain- no one wants to see it.
The sheets are clean- I promise- so sleep between them, not on top of the white comforter. Remember, your luggage has been wheeled through the same stuff your shoes has, so please don't put your luggage on top of the white comforter.
No eating food on the couch.
Please take precaution not to damage the furniture- use coasters under glasses and don't throw sharp objects (like keys) on surfaces.
Turn off heat or AC when leaving the apartment.
Turn off lights (make sure the dimmers “click” off) when not in use.
Great location - exactly what you would want in NYC. The proximity to the subway made it a perfect place to experience the big apple! Moreover, the place was also very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!
I stayed with Maricia while in town for an interview in Manhattan. Maricia was great, very welcoming with a great knowledge of the city. When she heard I wanted to try NYC ramen, she recommended a great place.
The apartment was clean, the room was cozy and it was easy to find near by transportation to other parts of the city.
Nuestra estancia en casa de Marcia fue perfecta, es una anfitriona buenísima y muy simpática. Estuvimos como en casa y perfectamente atendidos.
Se mostró interesada en nuestra estancia y atendió todas nuestras dudas.
Recomendamos sin ninguna duda la estancia aquí, el barrio muy tranquilo y bien comunicado.
Marcia's place was perfect for my stay in NYC. Impeccably clean and couldn't be more convenient to get anywhere you want to go. Highly recommended!
Marcia's place was great, accurate to the description, was clean and cozy and right around the corner from the Subway which takes you right into the city. The neighbourhood it's really great with a lot of restaurants, bars and shops in a amazing area of the lovely Brooklyn. You have a city bike just around the corner. I only meet Marcia the first of our 10 days stay; she is such an amazing person,very nice and helpful with any questions and a lot of tips.
Very easy to get there from JFK.
We definitely would recommend this place
Marcia definitely made my girlfriend and I feel welcome during our short stint in the city. She is gregarious and effectively communicative. Her place was comfortable and clean. Moreover, the location definitely made it convenient to get to different parts of the city. One aspect I definitely enjoyed was the good bagel shop and cafes within a small proximately of the apartment, of which Marcia had graciously apprised us about!
Marcia warmly greeted us upon our mid-day arrival and showed us around the apartment and to our clean and cozy room. The apartment is exactly how it is portrayed in pictures; it is extremely clean (thanks to her no shoes rule, so remember to follow it). Marcia will also give you great recommendations on where to visit, shop and eat. One of the best things about staying here is the close proximity to the subway, it is about a 3 minute walk max. The neighborhood is great as well, great shops and food well within walking distance.
We had a terrific experience staying with Marcia and couldn't recommend her and her place enough!
