Cozy, Cute and Convenient Nook!

Apartment - Private room · Wyckoff Street, Brooklyn, NY 11217, United States

My sweet and cozy jr one bedroom apt has tons of sunlight and access to all of Brooklyn's best! 1 block from the F&G train and within walking distance to all major subway lines, this private bedroom can transform into your ideal urban oasis!

The Space

Why stay at a hostel when you could stay in the best neighborhood in all of New York City?!

Cute, cozy, 1 bedroom apt in quaint Brooklyn neighborhood to share for short term stays -1 person is preferable though ideal for couples as well. (In special cases, we can make room for a third person as well.) Located on the 3rd floor walk-up in an old prewar building with tons of character. Good situation for a person who is new to NYC looking for cheap place to stay that is more private and homey than a hostel or someone moving to NY and looking for a home base while you look for something more permanent or someone here for short term work/business.

The apartment is small with separate rooms for bedroom and living room. I stay in the couch in living room. The rooms are adjoined so you will need to walk through the living room to get to kitchen and bathroom, so it is not 100% private for me, though it is 100% private bedroom for you. I have plenty of towels, linens, blankets, etc.

You will have your own keys and open to come and go as you please and have as much coffee and tea as you would like, of course in addition to access of all kitchen goods. Very laid back, open minded, liberal and quiet environment.

$68/ a night. $150 security deposit needed. Open to stays from 1 night to 4 weeks, possibly longer, pending availability. Also, no smoking in apartment, though outside is okay.

(Not ideal for bringing overnight guests, considering the size of apartment and that I would also be there also.)

Interaction with Guests

I am a low key 29 year-old working professional. I am originally from CA but have been out here for 8 years, which I believe qualifies me to proclaim that I am a New Yorker! When I am not working (which I do quite a bit), I am at the gym, exploring new coffee shops, dining and drinking with friends, or trying to enjoy a classic NYC experience! I work as a school leader for a charter school and work long hours 7 days/week, so I am up early and not around much. Other than when I am sleeping and getting ready for the day, you will have the entire apartment to yourself for the majority of your stay!

I would love to share my sunny apartment with any kind, quiet, financially responsible person who needs a temporary place to stay. Looking forward to meeting you!

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood cannot be matched! Apt is 1.5 blocks from the F/G train, steps to Smith Street, and close to a ton of hip bars, quaint coffee shops, fun restaurants and interesting boutiques. Apt is clean, has a fully equipped kitchen, HDTV with Roku, A/c, heat, and wireless internet. Apt is located on 3rd floor of well maintained walk up building. Walking distance to Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, Boerum Hill, Fort Greene, Dumbo and just a few stops (10 minutes or less) from both Willliamsburg and Manhattan on the train.

Getting around

Depending on the train you take, my apartment is within just 1-2 stops from Manhattan! Every major train is within walking distance - F, G, R, A/C, 2, 3, 4 and tons of buses! Trader Joes, YMCA, NYSC and a ton of eateries are within steps of my apartment!

  • Staying at Lisas was a very good decision.She is a lovely host.The Neighbourhood in Brooklyn is very nice: nice cafés, shops and the subway station with a direct train to Manhattan is just around the corner.

  • We stayed for 5 days in Lisa's apartment and we had a great time. The Location is just awesome. It was perfect for us. And Lisa is a great host. She is very friendly and she always tried to help us. So if you are looking for a apartment in Brooklyn you should definitely go to Lisa's place. It was just awesome.

  • I had a very pleasant and convenient stay at Lisa's place. Lisa is a bright, conscientious, friendly, and responsive host. The room is clean, comfortable, and appropriately appointed. I also enjoyed the location, as it is easy to get back and forth to Manhattan but also worth spending some time in to get to know. I would like to thank Lisa for going out of her way to make sure I had a good experience in NYC. Thanks Lisa!

  • We stayed at Lisa's place for the weekend and we loved it!!
    The apartment is small but it's in a really nice neighbor in Brooklin and close to the subway station. You can find grocery, Starbucks and other things around. Lisa was really kind and gave us a lot of attention. We would stay there again and we highly recommend! :)

  • Great host, nice flat (small, but feels like home, clean, good location in Brooklyn), exactly what you need when visiting this amazing city!

  • I travelled to NYC to visit my daughter who was on a short sabbatical but when she returned back to the UK, I decided to stay on and find myself somewhere safe and convenient to stay and to explore NYC as a single woman in the Big Apple.
    I couldn't have chosen a better host or more convenient, safe and comfortable place.
    Lisa's apartment was small but clean, warm (it was minus 3 celsius outside!) and well-equiped. It was easy to make arrangements to meet on my arrival and she greeted me with a warm welcome (even helping me to carry my bags up the stairs). Lisa kindly left me fruit and bottled water as an arrival "hello" before dashing out. She's a busy professional so I didn't see much of her for the rest of my eight night stay. Most of the time it was like having my own apartment in Brooklyn! Lisa gave me my own wardrobe space, drawers and more-than-enough shelves in the bedroom as well as shelves and fridge space of my own in the kitchen and lots of space in the bathroom too. There was plenty of privacy - although we were both out for the majority of time ...
    The area is "real" NYC with a sense of community and numerous subway connections to Manhattan. Try walking over nearby Brooklyn Bridge to South Manhattan and visiting Century 21! Or stroll along Brooklyn Bridge promenade at sunset - the view of the Statue of Liberty and the Bridge is lovely.
    It's easy to get to JFK from here too. Go via Atlantic Avenue subway which is nearby and go straight to the Jamaica stop by overland train from this subway, then the sky fly to the airport. It cost 15 dollars compared to $55 by taxi from JFK to Brooklyn on arrival.
    I really recommend staying with Lisa and would stay again, without question. I love older style architecture and especially liked the marble entrance hall, marble stairs and cast iron balustrading and stair rail up to her apartment as well as the wooden floors in her sitting room and bedroom. It should be "cozy, cute, convenient and chic" but all with lower case letters because it's all on a small scale!
    By the way, the bed was really comfortable and neatly dressed. Very chic!
    Thanks so much for your welcome, Lisa!

  • Lisa was a great host!
    First try with airbnb and totally TOP!
    She welcomed us lovely with a sweet letter, answered our very many questions and even left the apartment for a few days so that we had the entire apartment for ourselves! Had a great time with Netflix aswell when we were too tired from walking through the city! The location is great, almost all subways stops are walking distances away and cute Brooklyn cafes and boutiques are just around the corner. The room is not too big but definitely enough for sleeping and storing all the clothes even if you shop a lot its still going to fit. She is a lovely person and laughs a lot! It all made our 10-day NYC experience unforgivable!
    All the best Lisa!
    (Marie) and Katharina

  • Great place to stay. Thanks to Lisa for making my first visit to New York such a great experience. Nice, clean, and comfortable room; very convenient location; and one of the greatest hosts I've ever met.

The neighbourhood is very nice, relativaly close to manhattan by metro. Lisa is very nice person and hostess. Also I recommend Brooklyn shuttle to take you to the airport only 17$ to JFK.

Life is nothing if not an adventure! Like most people, I love traveling. Unlike most people, I have a tendency to find trouble in the places I travel to - whether I am getting bitten by rabid dogs in India, shark diving in South Africa, or WOOFing in Greece, I try to live life with passion, compassion and endless laughter. In a nutshell: I work hard, play hard and love hard. The people I have met along my journey have shaped who I am. I am confident that the people that I meet on Airbnb will be no exception! I am looking forward to meeting you!
