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.

Make yourself at home! 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 ($75/night during summer months). $150 security deposit needed. Open to stays from 2 nights to 2 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.)

Thank you for your interest in staying with me!

Interaction with Guests

My goal is to help you get the most out of your NYC experience by staying in an authentic Brooklyn apartment! Our paths won't cross too frequently because I work very long hours at a charter school 6 days/week. I am up early and home late. 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 and has a hunger to take advantage of all that NYC has to offer. 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!

  • le logement a totalement correspondu à ma demande avec une entière liberté,tout était à ma disposition. Appartement calme, propre et bien situé : métro à 5 mns à pied, commerces et restaurants également. Mon hôte LISA ne m'a aucunement gênée au contraire, très accueillante et très accaparée par son travail , l'appartement était tout à moi. Je le recommande donc pour une ou deux personnes qui ont tout à découvrir de NYC et qui partent dans cet objectif. Je remercie encore LISA lui souhaite bonne chance dans son job quelle a à coeur. Amicalement . marie christinetout

  • Même si notre arrivée fut chaotique (trajet de métro interrompu à mi-parcours pour cause de travaux sur la ligne entre JFK et Brooklyn, à partir de 22 :30), ce fut vite oublié grâce au sourire et à l’accueil de notre hôte, Lisa. Lisa nous a ouvert les portes de son appartement et nous a accueilli comme on accueille de bons amis. Nos emplois du temps respectifs ne nous ont pas permis de nous voir plus de 2-3 fois au cours de notre séjour, mais nous communiquions par écrit pour lui poser nos questions d’ordre pratique ou autres. Lisa est une hôte chaleureuse, agréable et très patiente avec les anglophones débutants ! Elle a toujours répondu rapidement à nos demandes et a tout mis en œuvre pour que notre séjour se déroule le mieux possible. Le descriptif de l’appartement correspond bien à la réalité. Il est situé à 2 pas des 3 stations de métro (Bergen st. / Borough hall / Hoyt st) et de rues commerçantes très agréables (court st / Smith st) : resto, mode, livres, superette) C’est un quartier calme où l’on ne craint pas de rentrer à la nuit tombée. Le quartier mérite une promenade, loin de l’agitation de Manhattan. Il faut compter 25 minutes pour rejoindre la première station de Manhattan et 30 minutes pour se rendre à Coney Island (ligne directe) C’est un vrai plaisir d’avoir fait la connaissance de Lisa. Une première expérience « air bnb » qui donne envie d’en avoir encore beaucoup d’autres semblables ! Si nous avons la chance de retourner à New York, nous passerons forcément chez Lisa ! Even if our arrival was chaotic (transit of mid-term interrupted subway because of works on the line between JFK and Brooklyn, from 22 :30), it was fast forgotten with the smile and to the welcome of our host, Lisa. Lisa opened us the doors of her apartment and welcomed us as good friends. Our respective timetables did not allow us to see us more of 2-3 times during our stay, but we communicated in writing to ask her our practical questions or others. Lisa is one warm, pleasant and very patient host with the novice English speakers! She always answered quickly our demands and implemented everything so that our stay takes place as good as possible. The description of the apartment corresponds well to the reality. Not far off three subway stations (Bergen st /Borough hall / Hoyt st) and two very pleasant business streets (court st / Smith st): restaurant, fashion, books, minimarket. It is a quiet district where we are not afraid to come back by night. The district deserves a walk, far from the agitation of Manhattan. It is necessary to count 25 minutes to join the first station of Manhattan and 30 minutes for goes to Coney Island (direct line) It is a real pleasure and lucky to know Lisa. A first experience with " air bnb " which tempts to have it some more other else....

  • Lisa`s appartement is a very charming and special place. The location is excellent - it is in walking distance to Brooklyn Downtown, there are many little shops, cafés and restaurants, and the atmosphere is charming. With the subway it is really close to Manhatten - but since it is Brooklyn it is much quieter and more personal.
    In the little flat there is all you need: one or two bedrooms, a little kitchen and a bathroom. Since we were 3 persons Lisa let us stay all by ourselves in the flat which was a fantastic treat (thank you for your trust, Lisa!). Although we did not meet in person we could feel Lisa`s personality right through her interior decoration - we witnessed a well kept, tidy and sweet "girls-appartement" in which we enjoyed our stay very much. I can strongly recommend this offer!

  • Nous avons passe une petite semaine chez Lisa afin de pouvoir visiter NYC . Le quartier est agréable. Il y a suffisamment de zones de restauration a côté et le métro est suffisamment proche de son domicile. Pour l appartement, il est tel que l annonce le décrit et Lisa sait rendre son appartement plus spacieux de pr sa discrétion et sa disponibilité. Vraiment un bon rapport qualité prix voire même très bon si on ajoute a cela la gentillesse naturelle de l hôte . Encore merci Lisa de ta disponibilité

About
Life is nothing if not an adventure! I am a low key 30 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! 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!
