About this listing

This is a bright and spacious room on the top floor of a beautiful brownstone on a tree-lined residential block in Park Slope. It is in the heart of Brooklyn's cultural center and yet only a short subway ride to Manhattan. The best of both worlds.

The space

This is a quiet room with private bath that overlooks a huge backyard. Windows on two sides make it especially light and airy. The room is large (13'x16') and has a queen bed, ample work space, a comfortable upholstered chair and lots of closet space. It has a mini-fridge, teapot,coffeemaker and microwave. The room is listed for double occupancy, but it is adjacent to another, smaller room with a twin bed that can accommodate another guest for an additional $40/night. (See Room #2.) Ideal for a small family or close friends. (Altogether, there are four bedrooms on this unoccupied floor. Use of the other rooms may be negotiated for a larger group or family.) We book only one guest or group at a time, so you will have the private bath to yourselves.

Guest access

The top floor is the guest floor. It is very private and roomy. From time to time there may be a family guest staying in one of the other rooms, but most of the time no one else passes through. And to get there, you don't have to pass through anyone else's living space. (The top floor is two flights up, not too bad, but it may not be ideal for people with knee problems.) There is a button lock on the bathroom door, but the bedrooms do not have locks.

Interaction with guests

I live in the house (on the 2nd and 3rd floor)
and will be available with help or suggestions if needed.

My parents and I stay in Deborah's house for four days and I highly recommend this place. It is located within the walking distance of multiple subway lines, which is a big plus for us. The neighborhood is quite and beautiful as well. The bedrooms, bathroom and the kitchen are extremely clean and well maintained. Deborah is very nice and welcoming. We communicated well before our arrival and during our stay. We really appreciate your hospitality. Thanks Deborah!

Deborah's Brownstone is a fabulous place to stay in Brooklyn. It was perfect for our 4 night stay - we would have loved to stay longer. It is in a great location, it's clean and roomy. Highly recommend. Big thumbs up from Down Under!

Deborah's place is an actual gem in Park Slope . I grew up in Brooklyn and was back to visit my daughter who lives there now . Hotel options are limited and expensive for a tiny space . Park Slope is a beautiful safe neighborhood with numerous public transportation options even if you're in town to visit Manhattan . It offers a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city but with all the coolness . Deborah's space is immaculate , in a perfect location on a safe tree lined quiet street but only one block in either direction to shops restaurants and cafes lovely decor and warm atmosphere . We will be back for sure !!'

Deborah is a very flexible and thoughtful host with a beautiful home and a wonderful dog. She provided excellent tips in her little guidebook and recommended some tours and attractions that we would otherwise have ignored and would have missed out on. The house also possessed some guest amenities that we personally didn't use but I am sure others might like a tea kettle and a microwave. The location is extremely convenient and there are little gems hidden in that area northwest of Prospect Park (like Ramen Zamurai, formerly Ramen Yebisu?) and Bergen Bagels, and if you're there for the Manhattan scene then you will have an easy commute there on the 2, 3 Express lines from Bergen Ave. Station at Flatbush Ave.

Staying at Deborah's place is the best decision you could make when staying in NYC! The place is just lovely, located in a super nicehood neighbourhood with lots of choices for restaurants and cafes. It's central yet quiet so you can relax after along day exploring the city. We had many nice interactions with Deborah who has been very helpful and we just loved her little dog. We had a wonderful time, thanks Deborah!

We really loved our stay at Deborah's place. We had two bedrooms at the top floor of a beautiful brownstone house with our own bathroom. The neighborhood was quiet but really charming and there were a lot of nice shops and restaurants just around the corner, even as 2 subway stops. Deborah is a kind and friendly woman, who let us do whatever we want but gave us some really good advice for experiencing New York at our best. We would definitely recommend this place if you like to see Manhattan and Brooklyn both!

I have lived in Brooklyn, NY for 30 years and have three grown children. I am a retired public gardener and an avid urban farmer. (We have a beehive, vegetable beds, fruit trees and three chickens!) I teach adult literacy at the Brooklyn Central Library. I love to travel -- most recently to SE Asia and Oaxaca, Mexico -- but am always happy to come home to New York's best borough -- Brooklyn.
