Hip Studio in Victorian Townhouse

Apartment - Private room · Putnam Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11221, United States

The Space

Brooklyn is famous for its 19th Century Brownstone townhouses. We offer a wonderful studio apartment overlooking the garden in such a building in Stuyvesant Heights near the Historic District. You will enjoy all of the 19th Century Victorian architectural detail that Brooklyn has to offer. We are very well located being only 7 blocks from the A and C subway lines and 20 minutes from Manhattan.

Our goal is to make your stay as comfortable and memorable as possible. The apartment is very private and very quiet (you will not share with others) and it has its own entrance so you can come and go as you wish.

There is a large, spa-like bathroom, which is yours alone. It has a shower, bath tub, and includes Egyptian cotton towels and luxury soaps and lotions.

Appointments include a four-poster bed with Frette linens; a Martin Visser sofa that sleeps one; a mid-20th Century modern rosewood desk/table; an American "highboy" (a tall chest-of-drawers) from the 1750's; books and mazagines.

There is also a small refrigerator and a selection of teas and coffee, all provided free of charge. Also included are a microwave oven, ironing board, and iron. The unit is air-conditioned and has free wireless internet service.

Also for a small fee we can lead you on a number of private tours. Whether you are interested in shopping, architecture, history, or something else, we can put something together for you, or if not through us, we can recommend another tour organization.

There are many bakeries, coffee shops, and restaurants in the neighborhood which we would be pleased to recommend as well.

Our neighborhood, Bedford-Stuyvesant, has been recognized as one of the best neighborhoods in New York City by TimeOut MagazineNew York.

  • We had a great spring break in New York and were happy we found Michael's place on airbnb. We arrived early in the morning and could leave our luggage in the hallway so we could go explore the city. Same on the last day, we could leave our luggage and had an extra day in New York since we were leaving at night. The studio is quiet and clean. It is only a couple of blocks to the subway which will bring you to Manhatten in a short time, especially if you walk a little further to Nostrand station and take the experss.

  • Apartment is nice and very small. The shower is funky: the water pressure is low and not a lot of hot water.
    I never met the owner, although I heard people downstairs. The owner was responsive to emails.

  • Michael was a fantastic host, the room was amazing and very quiet plus the private bathroom was excellent. The whole suite ass clean and comfortable

    April 2014
  • The place is comfy and clean; and is as seen in the photos. The directions to and from the apartment were very clear, and the book of restaurants Michael and Randy left, as well as the tourist books about NYC, were much appreciated. We were gone most of the time so didn't meet our hosts, but they were prompt, polite and helpful when messaging with them. We'd stay there again if visiting the area!

  • Very nice apartment. Good feedback from hosts. Slightly further out than I had realised. Felt like being in someones home rather than a hotel which is a plus. One night was woken by noisy neighbours playing drums till 2 am.

University Professor and Architect
I am a college professor in politics and my partner is an architect. I speak German and Dutch, some French and Czech. My partner speaks Spanish and some French. We both really enjoy cooking, travel, art and architecture. I am from Las Vegas, Nevada, originally, and Randy is from San Antonio, Texas. We have two dogs, Lulu, a Jack Russel mix, and Nacho, a miniture pincher, who stay in our apartment, but would love belly scratches should someone offer. We love New York City and can't wait to share it with you!
