About this listing
Imagine a quiet bedroom in a spacious apartment, with beautiful sunlight, just steps from the terrific restaurants and shops of this wonderful neighborhood. Near many subway stops (1/2 block from the R train), easy to get to Manhattan; four blocks from Prospect Park; near to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Brooklyn Museum. You'll have the best of both worlds: you'll be in a fun, hip, laid-back neighborhood, but close to the sights and action of Manhattan!
The apartment is a duplex with two large bedrooms, two full baths, fully stocked kitchen, dw, wi-fi. You would be sharing the place with me (and my cat) - I'm in the upstairs bedroom and have my own bathroom, you have the downstairs bedroom (double bed; there is a queen-size raised aerobed if you prefer) and bathroom, and we share the open living/kitchen/dining area.
I'd greatly appreciate it if you would make an inquiry so we can e-chat for a bit before sending an offer. Thanks!
There is a fold-down couch in the living room, where one adult or two children can sleep for an additional charge of $25/night. Please note, though, that the living room is an open space directly adjacent to the kitchen/dining area.
There is a cleaning fee of $60.
There is a refundable security deposit of $250.
No smoking. No pets - my cat loves humans, but not other animals.
In truth, I started with airbnb to bring in some additional funds. In reality, I never knew this could be so much fun! I love meeting people from all over the states and all over the world, including Croatia, Germany, Israel and Vermont!
If you're renting one bedroom from me, my bedroom/bathroom are upstairs, so you'll see me around breakfast; but, I work a lot and want you to feel like the place is your own - to enjoy the tv/stereo in the living room, to cook meals in the kitchen, and to come and go without feeling like you need to check in. At the same time, if you need anything from me, please let me know and I'll do my best to make it happen!
If you're renting the full place, I know you will enjoy your yourselves. The apartment is big (even by non-NYC standards); comfortable, but not pretentious. And, of course, there's Allie the cat, who is totally sweet and very people-friendly (though, sadly, she doesn't like other critters).
Let me know if you have questions. I'll be happy to host you!
