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.
Все было супер. В реальности условия оказались даже лучше, чем можно себе представить. Дебора - замечательная хозяйка, помогала во всех вопросах. С удовольствием вернусь еще раз. Рекомендую всем!!!
I was in NYC on a very arduous business trip, but Deborah's friendliness and kindness, her lovely vintage brownstone house (full of interesting things!), and my big, warm bedroom made me feel so at home and cosy, despite the chilly weather. The location is excellent for different subway lines and everything you need if you're alone - coffee shops, restaurants. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and my first Airbnb experience could not have been better. I particularly loved playing with Deborah's dog and cat and they made me feel even more at home after a long day! :) Thanks, Deborah. You're the best!
Deborah is a great host! I booked a room with her for my mom who was in town visiting. Deborah was really friendly and helpful and the room itself was very comfortable and cozy. The location is perfect, with many great restaurant and cafe options nearby. I will definitely reach out to Deborah next time family or friends are visiting.
everything was exactly as stated. deborah was great. very helpful and friendly. the area was a winter wonderland. we had a great time and appreciated her company
Location was perfect for our visit with family in Park Slope. Very spacious room. We had entire floor to ourselves. Very gracious host who was knowledgeable about the area. Enjoyed meeting her dog and cat, too.
If you don't get on with Deborah there something is wrong with you! She's the perfect host, so welcoming and kind and what a beautiful home she offers to share with you! I loved staying here, the location was also great. Close to great food, coffee, shops & the R train. I can't wait to stay again!
Deborah made us feel so welcomed. Her home is so warm and inviting.
Being in her home for 2 nights was so much better then spending 2 nights in a hotel.
Knowing that Deborah is only a 5 minute drive or a 20 minute walk to our children was just the best.
We will definately be back!
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.
