Ask for the sublet special if you are interested in staying for a month or two!
PLEASE, REMEMBER TO TURN OFF THE AIR-CONDITIONER WHEN YOU ARE NOT HOME.

Please note that this not a hotel room with a 24 hours service which is why it's so so so much cheaper, and much more laid back than hotels. Also, the room is in a house that was built in the 1920s so while you can find so many of Brooklyn's characters in it, it's not really shiny. In addition, the pictures are taken by a professional Airbnb photographer. I love those photos but some guests commented that Airbnb photos didn't convey the real look of the room. In any case, pictures are taken for the same room, I assure you. Lastly, please consider picking up after yourselves (towels, bath stuff, bathroom mat, and wash your plates/pots after cooking). At times, guests think that the house is untidy or dirty when it's actually another guest who decided to leave things unwashed... etc. :). In addition, please be advised that when you don't clean after yourself in the kitchen or bathroom, or when you eat in your bedroom that there may be a chance that you see a mouse or roach. Thanks for reading.
Enjoy your city in the great New York City!!!
Frontyard, livingroom, kitchen, and bathroom.
As much as guests want. I may or may not be present during the stay but if I am not, someone else should be at home to help you when you need.
I love that my neighborhood is diverse, fun, not uptight, open, and I mostly love that I can get anything anytime of the day or night. I love that there are so many cafes and restaurants. I love that there are museums, parks, free concerts almost all summer long.
Public transportation are about 5 minutes away, and buses are only 30 steps away from my house. Parking is free although you have to abide by the two days cleaning for each side of the street from 9-11 in the morning.
To get from airport, take a taxi for $30-$40, or take the bus or subway for less than $10 total per passenger.
Had an excellent stay in Natasha's and her sister's place. I was living in one of four rooms in the upper storey of a house in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens neighborhood. About half an hour subway ride from Manhattan. The other rooms up there are also rented out through airbnb, two of them were occupied at the time with nice guys from India and Korea. I shared kitchen, bathroom and a large common room with them.
The showers worked good. Kitchen is fully equipped with stove, fridge, microwave. Heating was very good in my room and bathroom, and sufficient in kitchen and common room, in spite of extremely cold weather. Excellent value for the money.
The location is really nice, central and quiet. Before I arrived there, I thought that I was subletting a room in a house where the host,i.e. Natasha lives. Yet, all of the rooms in the house are sublet-ted so you will stay with other guests. Thus, it is like a non-institutionalized hostel. I didn't meet Natasha. Her sister and brother seem to take care of the house. They're very nice people. It was written that check out time was flexible. I told Natasha's sister the day before I left that I'd be checking (email hidden) if that was fine. She told me that there was another guest coming at 3:30 so she needed time to prepare the room. It'd have been fine if she had let me know that beforehand, and not wait for me to ask the day before. I had to leave my bags in the common room in the morning and got them before I left the house.
I really enjoyed staying at Natashas. Her sister Shayma is very sweet and brought out food for me and other guests on our first night. The place was cozy, something old timey about it that made it comforting. It was clean and located perfectly.There was a plumbing issue during my stay in which Shayma worked tirelessly to resolve. I would definately stay again. Thank you.
It was a great stay! Thank you Natasha. Nice Neighborhood and easy transit to Manhattan. The Room was fine...
Great time in this quiet place, clean and welcoming. Prospect park is just 3 blocks from the house and the subway (2 and 5) is just 100m away..
Thanks and see you next time...
