Would you like to come home to a safe, family-oriented block in South Slope, Brooklyn? Recently renovated second floor is one large room and two smaller rooms with a full tub bathroom.
The suite is on the second floor separated from the rest of the house with many flexible features. (For Europeans and Australians, the second floor is up one flight of stairs.) A small refrigerator, microwave, slow cooker, coffeemaker and other electrical appliances are in the suite. The bathroom is cozy, and has a full bath, nice shower and all the basics. The bathroom ensuite is in the big bedroom. One smaller room has a big closet with shelves and a pull out single love seat. In the closet are many helpful items such as TV tables, iron and travel ironing board, dishes, glassware and some great surprises (chocolate....). The other small room faces the street with a single captains bed and some shelves.
Close to the F & G subway in one direction and the R, N, D in the other with access to all the rest of the train system. 30 - 40 minutes to just about anywhere including Midtown Manhattan, Coney Island, Williamsburg. 20 minute walk or short bus ride to Barclays Arena--great concerts and sports events. 5 minute walk to Prospect Park or Greenwood Cemetery. Take a one mile stroll down Seventh Avenue or a scenic bus to downtown Brooklyn. It is easy enough to get in and out of Manhattan, but we like to encourage guests to get to know Brooklyn a little too. We love our borough!
Particularly appropriate for traveling women and those new to NYC--I will make sure you are safely well-oriented and un-hassled if at all possible. Many of our recent guests have been the visiting parents of nearby neighbors who don't have enough room in their apartments. I have also hosted many single women who want a comfortable home away from home.
There are great restaurants, shops, hang out cafes, grocery stores and a lively nightlife nearby, but all is quiet once you return home to our lovely tree-lined block. Laundromats are very convenient, the closest is a block away. Our neighborhood is a take-out delivery paradise, every cuisine can be ordered and delivered to the door.

Because of the stairs and small bathroom, the suite is probably not good for someone with major mobility issues. In particular, it may be a little awkward getting in and out of the tub.
We live on the first floor and our friendly tenant has a separate apartment on the third. I am a recently retired mom, working on my doctoral dissertation. Along with my son who recently finished his graduate degree and lives close by, our dog Opal and new puppy Owen, we are friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. Opal is seven and very friendly; little Owen, our new puppy, is a bundle of wiggly enthusiasm. They will often greet you at the door and are very loving and not aggressive. Many guests find these enthusiastic greetings to be a highlight of their visit. If you are afraid of dogs, please let me know.
This is a great place for an extended stay--for writers or student interns. I can make a small desk available, our internet works great and the space is quiet and comfortable to help you to focus.
We now have wireless TV available, you can access cable as well as sports stations, HBO and Showtime. You just need a laptop.
Here is what is available for cooking in the suite:
small and large rice cooker
water boiler for beverages
If you would like to purchase a start-up grocery package please make this request when booking.
It has been great having guests, I have met people from all over the world. I hope to meet you too.
Sara, your host
My brother and his girlfriend came to the NY to visit me. They told me that they were very comfortable in the place, the room is quiet, clean and Sara was a very attentive host. The neighborhood is lovely too. Totally recommendable!!!
My girlfriend & I stayed here for about 5 nights during a vacation to New York, and the place was absolutely perfect as a launching pad to the rest of the city. The location was perfect, and only a few blocks away from the F train into Manhattan and the G train into the rest of Brooklyn. The room was spacious and quiet, and the perfect place to relax after a long day exploring the city. Sara was very helpful with any questions we had about our travel itinerary or things to do in the city, and her two dogs Opal and Oliver are adorable. Definitely worthy of a five star rating.
Sara was a wonderful host! She really anticipates your needs and is quick to ask if you need anything. The room was beautiful, clean, comfortable and quiet. I wish we'd had a chance to talk more (we were mostly ships passing in the night!) because she's so nice. It is a perfect home away from home.
The room is big, clean, sunny and had a private bathroom, fridge, and microwave. Sara was very kind and hospitable. The neighborhood is beautiful and very safe. I highly recommend this room to anyone coming to New York. You won't regret it!
Some friends and I stayed with Sara for four days- it was a great experience! Our first host dropped us last minute (her current guest wanted to stay longer) and Sara agreed to let us stay with her the day before we arrived. She was a VERY kind and accommodating host, and the space was perfect for our needs. The neighborhood is quiet and family oriented, and the walk to the F train was reasonable (about 5-8 minutes, more if you stop at Terrace Bagels like we did almost daily). Thanks so much for the lovely rooms!
Sara was very accommodating right from the start! We very much enjoyed our stay here. Her place is quiet, clean, stylish and very private. Comfy bed and spacious shower! Sara's place is right by several very good restaurants, coffee shops that we are already missing.. The train (F/R) is just a short walk away as is Prospect Park. I would very much recommend staying at Sara's!!
Wonderful, tranquil, comfortable space! The room is quite spacious with a private bath and sitting area, and the whole space is freshly remodeled. Sara is an ideal host--when we let her know about a broken piece of furniture, she replaced it within HOURS! Bottom line: We felt comfy and and safe here even during Hurricane Irene, so you'll definitely enjoy your stay!

Sara was very friendly and helpful without intruding in any way. Opal and Owen were a delight and we welcomed their intrusion, though they are very well behaved and won't bother you a bit if you don't invite them in. :)
The room was clean, snug (even in frigid weather) and well-appointed and the bathroom shower was a Godsend. I developed a cold during my stay and was gratified to have a comfy bed, supplies to make tea with honey and a hot, hot shower whenever I needed it.
It was also only 2 blocks from Prospect Park, which I'm certain is fantastic in the summer. Sara has internet cable available with a bunch of channels and it rarely "buffered" so I watched uninterrupted television while I recuperated. We also have a small projector and external speaker that made the Superbowl a fantastic event as the room has a nice, clean wall opposite the bed that is perfect for projection.
Thanks Sara, we look forward to seeing you in MV.
Fantastic place to stay. Sara was welcoming, helpful and even stayed up late for my late arrival. The room is pretty as in the pictures with a nice view of pine trees outside. 10 minute walk to Prospect Park and F train. Similar to the R train. Would definitely stay again!
Sara is very friendly and so nice. Everything was great and the location of the apartment was very good. Restaurants, cafe and stores just a few minutes away. Safe area with nice houses around. Thank you so much Sara for these days.
Sara is a friendly host and the place is comfortable and in a great location.
Sara's place is in a great location. It is safe and has good access to restaurants and stores.
Sara was easy to communicate with and her dogs were very friendly. I would recommend the place to my friends.
Sara is very nice, discreet and friendly. She was really helpful with everything. The suite is clean and quiet and the metro is only 10 minutes walk away. Thank you for the accommodation Sara and we hope we visit you again soon!
Finding a clean, reasonably priced, room with a private bathroom in Brooklyn can be difficult, but we did it. We drove every day, and always found a parking spot nearby. Sometimes right in front. We were very pleased, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to others.
Sara was a great host. Wonderful location. Just as advertised.
The stay at Sara place was a wonderful experience. The room was large and comfortable my daughters, sister and myself felt right at home. So much better that a hotel room.
When my girls get together there is quite a ruckus to be had and Sara was the perfect hostess even when my girls got to laughing. Hope to make it back next May when my daughter gets married. I give this 2 thumbs up!
My husband and I stayed at Sara's suite for a month between moving apartments. The place was nice and cozy, and very clean. Sara was very accommodating and helpful. Anything we needed, she was able to do something about it. Moving can be difficult, but staying at Sara's suite helped make it so much better and comfortable. We would recommend her place to anyone that wants to visit Brooklyn.
