About this listing
Cozy, private bedroom on garden side in my quiet apt in Park Slope 2 blocks from Prospect Park! This first floor apartment is centrally located near restaurants, cafe's, subways in this safe, in a historic beautiful neighborhood!
The room I am renting is quiet, comfortable, and cozy in my apt on the ground floor flat (no stairs) situated on a prime street in beautiful historic Park Slope! It works out as a one bedroom split so I rent the garden side room here from time. When I host I sleep on the pull out in the living room which also becomes a private room. This is a working musician's apartment and makes up for it's limitations in luxury by offering comfort, quiet, loads of charm. and location, location, location!
Kitchen, Bath, Room, DVD player, Flat screen TV for HDMI hookup or DVD only (No network TV or Cable connection), WIFI, Two Bicycles (by request),
Interaction with guests
I love meeting new people from all walks and all journeys. I enjoy helping to facilitate your journey in any way I can.
Other things to note
I'm not a TV watcher. There is a TV but ONLY for use with the DVD player. You can access shows or movies on cable and plug in to the HDMI of the Flatscreen.
There is a very old boiler in the building and sometimes the water is either too hot or goes a little cold too fast. Usually it is just fine though.
Also - I live with my dog and if I'm renting just the room he will be staying in the apartment as well. He is a joy (clean too!) and loves people and kids! However, if I am listing the full apartment there will be no dog here!

It has been 15 years and counting in beautiful idyllic Park Slope for me after transplanting from Miami, FL, and Boston where he lived for a few years while attending Berklee College of Music. I am most definitely a Brooklynite now!
I am a naturalist at heart who would like to reduce my footprint on the planet. I compost and have planted many trees but I still have not reached the level of balance with the Earth that I need and want to reach. I’m a respected music professional involved in several projects including OLA FRESCA, an 8 piece Latin band that combines elements of classic and contemporary Cuban music with Salsa and world beat influences. This occupies much of my time. I love to cook and eat good healthy food whether it is low key ethnic or gourmet cuisine and the same goes for the vino.
I like to get the same special treatment when I travel that I give to guests in my home. I go to great lengths to make my guests feel comfortable and calm so the accommodation I provide enhances the travel experience. I offer a clean comfy space, I help with the luggage and brew tea or coffee, open doors and help hang stuff. I also love to get to know folks just a little and then watch them go off on their own journey around town at a comfort level that I facilitated. Wherever I get the same treatment on a trip, it always makes me want to return.
Deal breaker . Truth. I am completely upfront about who I am and how I live and what you can expect from me and I expect any guest or host to do the same absolutely. I do not smoke and prefer not to accommodate or stay in a smokers home (but we can be friends!) I respect a person's home and their belongings as if they were my own and I expect my guests to do the same completely and in every way.
A few places I've been that I love are; Costa Rica all over, La Gran Sabana in Venezuela, Habana and Pinar del Rio Cuba, El Paramo in Ecaudor and the hot springs there, Paris, Berlin, Denmark, Offenbach, Germany, Sevilla, Barcelona, the Everglades in South Florida, Turks n Caicos, St Martin, Grand Canyon, New Orleans, Virginia Beach, upstate NY, Montreal, Charles River in Boston on a Sunday.....
