Guests will have access to the entire apartment including the backyard. This will be your home aeay from home. Everything you will need fot your daily living is already inside the apartment.
Interaction with Guests
I usuall meet my guests upon arrival. I like to keep in contact with guests on a daily basis. I let my guests know that I am always available to give directions or answer questions. I also like to see my guests off on the day of their departure. Whenever possible I will pick up my guests at either JFK or LaGuardia airports. My business plan is to treat guests like family.
The thing that I love most about my neighborhood is that it is ever changing for the better. The acqeduct flee market has relocated very close to my home. The Gateway Center Mall was built a few years back and now it has doubled in size. You will have easy access to transportation.
New residential housing is being built and new businesses are opening up everywhere in this neighborhood.
Transportation is very close and convenient. The "A" train is 4 short blocks away. Walk to the corner and catch a bus or just stick your hand out and catch a cab in no time. I also can provide a parking space for my guests in my driveway.
Other Things to Note
Being that I was born in Brooklyn and have spent my entire life here, I like to consider myself a concierge to my guest. I am willing to help them have a good time, even sugesting things for them to do at reasonable prices.
Smoking is allowed in the apartment however I prefer it be done outside in the backyard. Sorry no pets. Please try and keep the apartment clean, I do not charge cleaning fees. Notify me if you have any questions or don't know how to operate something, I will make myself available when needed. Garbage should be taken out daily, cans provided in the back yard. Please turn off the air conditioning and lights before leaving. I must be notified before booking if an event attracting additional people is planned. The main house rules are that you must enjoy yourselves.
My experience was great . Felt very homey and safe . All necessities were provided and even if they weren't everything I needed was right up the block . Will definitely book again
Arrived to find Odell waiting to welcome us and give us a tour of the house. He also told us about the stores and restaurants in the area. He was always available for questions or assistance. He was the ultimate host. He wanted to see us off but we unexpectedly had to change our plans and had to leave at 2am on Sunday morning. The house was perfect for our family of 6. 5 minute walk to the subway entrance which we used every day since we didn't have a car. All in all it was a great experience and would def stay again and recommend to friends traveling to the area. Thanks Odell
La descripción de la casa es tal y como la describe O Dell, muy acogedora y perfecta para hospedar a 8 personas, en nuestro viaje fuimos 6 personas y estuvimos muy cómodos.
El barrio no me pareció para nada inseguro, al contrario, todas las personas con las que nos encontrábamos, empleados de los supermercados, etc, eran muy amables y serviciales.
En cuanto a O Dell, es una gran persona, todo lo que necesitamos lo tuvimos sin ningún problema, nuestro vuelo se retrasó a la llegada y allí estaba el esperándonos.
Nos orientó en como movernos por la ciudad perfectamente, así como la ruta más rápida para ir al aeropuerto el día de la salida.
Siempre se preocupó de cómo estaba resultando nuestra estancia en NY.
Aconsejo que elijáis este apartamento para hospedaros, no os vais a arrepentir.
The description of the house is described as O Dell, cozy and perfect to accommodate 8 people in our trip we were 6 people and we were comfortable .
The neighborhood did not seem at all unsure, on the contrary, all the people we met , employees of supermarkets , etc , were very friendly and helpful.
As for O Dell , is a great person, all we need what we had no problem, our flight was delayed on arrival and was there waiting for us.
He guided us in getting around the city perfectly, as the quickest route to the airport the day of departure.
Always worried about how it was turning our stay in NY.
I advise that you choose this apartment to host you , will not you going to regret it.
When I return to NY, I will stay there again .
Appartement un peu vieillot et bruyant mais proche d'un métro express pour Manhattan (1/2 h pour le lower Manhattan). Hôte sympathique.
O'Dell ist ein sehr herzlicher Mensch und hat uns das Gefühl gegeben überaus willkommen zu sein.
Wir haben uns im Haus sehr wohl gefühlt und haben viele Informationen und Tips von ihm bekommen. Dadurch war unser Aufenthalt in New York völlig problemlos und wir haben uns sehr gut zurechtgefunden.
Ein besonderer Vortei ist, dass das Haus verkehrstechnisch sehr günstig an einer Express-U-Bahn liegt und so alle wichtigen Stadtteile schnell erreichbar sind.
Le séjour chez o'dell s'est très bien passé, la maison est spacieuse, avec toutes les commodités requises. Le quartier est très sympathique, des restaurants, superettes, boutiques sont à proximité tout comme le metro express qui amène en 30 min à time square. O' dell est un hôte très aimable, qui nous a très bien acceuilli, et conseillé lors du séjour, il est joignable à toute instant. En somme, le séjour était au top.
O Dell place's is very Nice and confortable 2 blocks from the Subway located in brooklyn we really enjoyed our stay
As a host O Dell is very kind all thru our stay he was sending us emails to know if everything was ok give us a lot of good advices and gift
Thank you for everything

I am a 53 year old African American male. Born and raised in Brooklyn NY. I have a beautiful wife and 4 beautiful children. My wife and I have recently purchased my great aunt's home in Bklyn NY. My great aunt lived in her home independently until after her 102nd birthday. After an accidental fall it was decided that it was time for her to go to a nearby nursing home. I am pleased to say that my great aunt lived another glorious 4 years under the care of the wonderful staff at the United Methodist Church Home before she passed away at the age of 106. My great aunt has always been a very loving and caring person to family as well as to friends. In keeping with her legacy my wife and I have decided to list this blessed home on Airbnb. Our goal is to keep it in the family, keep Aunty's legacy alive within our family and to open this blessed home so that others can enjoy the comforts that it offers.
