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.
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 full 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 that can accommodate another guest for an additional $35/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 entire floor and private bath to yourselves.
The top floor is the guest floor. It is very private and roomy. Once you're upstairs, no one else passes through. And to get there, you don't have to pass through anyone else's living space.
Interaction with Guests
I live in the house (on the 2nd and 3rd floor)
and will be available with help or suggestions if needed.
Park Slope is a low-key, easy-walking, bike-friendly neighborhood, one of New York's famous "most livable." It's a short 5-10 minute walk to some of Brooklyn's greatest attractions, among them: Prospect Park, The Brooklyn Museum, The Botanic Gardens, The Barclay Center and The Brooklyn Academy of Music. It's got great shopping, bars, restaurants and music and comedy venues. And trees!
The Q, B, N, R, 2/3 and 4/5 trains are all within a 5 minute walk. There's street parking if you have a car and bike rentals within a few blocks.
Sorry, there's no smoking in or on the property. And since we've got some pets of our own, we can't take on any more.
If you're planning on having a guest, please let me know.
Having lived in Park Slope for several years I can honestly say that this is the home I wished I had lived in while I was there. Deborah was a fantastic host, she made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. The room was extremely comfortable and actually quite spacious and quiet.
As for the area, well you couldn't ask for a better spot. Tons of restaurants, bars and cafes. Conviently located near the 2/3 lines which is one stop from a major hub (NRBQ45 Lines) and a small hike to the F/G lines (goes to Manhattan and Greenpoint/Williamsburg). Couldn't dream of staying anywhere else to be honest.
This was an outstanding experience in every way. The location and accommodations were excellent! We had the entire upper floor to ourselves (she does not rent to more than one party at a time). Our room was very large and the bed was comfortable. There was a small refrigerator in our room and in adjacent room, there was a microwave and hot water kettle. The bathroom has been updated and was very nicely appointed. The WiFi worked perfectly. Debbie is friendly, outgoing, and very helpful in providing useful information. She made us feel very comfortable from the moment we arrived.
If you want to stay in a charming Park Slope neighborhood in a lovely brownstone with a wonderful host, this is the place! It is convenient to the subway and not far from Prospect Park.
We would not hesitate to stay with Debbie on our next trip to Brooklyn!
Deborah fut un hôte exemplaire.. Elle nous a très bien (website hidden) chambre était très propre,lumineuse et confortable. Elle nous a reçu comme des amis avec plein de petites attentions. Ce fut un séjour des plus agréables.
Deborah har et nydelig hjem og fikk oss til å føle oss veldig velkommen i Brooklyn og New York. En god vert og en veldig hyggelig dame. Rommet var som beskrevet og sto til våre forventninger. Perfekt å komme litt ut av byen og roe seg ned om kvelden. Kan anbefale et opphold hos Deborah!

Ademas fue nuestra primera experiencia con Airbnb y Deborah nos respondio siempre muy rápido y muy dedicamente para que no tengamos dudas de nada. Le agradecemos muchisimo por esta hermosa experiencia que nos hizo vivir!
The whole experience was fantastic. It's a lovely room in a great flat, close to the subway and shops. You have lots of privacy. It was a real pleasure to stay.
Deborah was amazing! We felt very comfortable and safe at her house. We stayed at her beautiful house for a week during a vacation trip to New York city. Her home and neighborhood made the experience so much more interesting. I hope we can comeback soon, and definitely book with Deborah again. Thank you for your hospitality :) it made our trip even more amazing!
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.
