About this listing

The space

The House & Its Location:

Our house is located at the intersection of the Historic Districts of Bedford-Stuyvesant and Clinton Hill, in vibrant, artistic, and diverse Brooklyn, famous for its history and architecture. Our charming rooms are located on the fourth floor of our 19th century Victorian home with all its original detail. A lovely accommodation, it features two comfortable, spacious, furnished private rooms -- one of which is listed here. (If you wish to book the two rooms at once, please find "Charming Rooms in Victorian Home" on Airbnb.)

The Room:

Each room has a full-sized bed, dresser, bedside tables, large closet, original detail, and abundant light. Fresh towels and bed linens will welcome you. The bath and kitchenette (microwave oven, refrigerator, coffeemaker, and dishware), located on the same floor, are shared with guests from the other room.

Transportation:

A quick subway ride will put you in downtown or midtown Manhattan in fifteen-to-thirty minutes. We are only a twenty-minute walk to Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum, the Botanic Garden, the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, the trendy Park Slope neighborhood, and the Brooklyn Academy of Music; and less than two miles away from downtown Brooklyn and Brooklyn Heights. We are also close to Fort Greene and Williamsburg, and a few blocks away from the Pratt Institute and St Joseph's College. We are easily accessible to either the JFK or LaGuardia airports. The G, A, and C subway lines, and a number of local buses are readily available. Restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, and the Atlantic Terminal Mall are also nearby.

The Amenities:

Free Wi-fi. Breakfast is not provided, though you are welcome to use the kitchenette to fix something yourself. Also, given the age and size of our house, corridors and bathrooms can be drafty during the winter months. Close the door to your room, however, and you can create as toasty of an environment as you wish, using the energy-efficient space heaters provided. One other thing: This is a no-shoe house. We leave our shoes at the entrance. So, especially in the winter, you may want to bring a nice pair of slippers or thick socks. There is AC available during summer months. Last but not least: Laundry service (wash, dry, and fold) is available for $15 per load. Just ask. :-)

Update: We have a friendly cat at home.

The room was comfortable and everything was according to what was announced. I thank Mary who received me and my girlfriend late at night on a Sunday due to a delay on our flight.

Excellent location, only ten minute walk from train and subway station and in 20 minutes you are in Manhattan. Quiet, beautiful. Mary is a great host. We would definitely stay at Mary's house again!

It was relaxing and easy staying at Mary's.

This is for us a typical NY style house with the stairs to the front door. The house is an affordable cosy spot in the middle of a lovely neighbourhood. It's take 35 minutes to downtown Manhattan but the neighbourhood has a lot of restaurants to go to. For us it was great to see how the real NYC people live in their neighbourhood and be away for a couple of ours from all the tourists. This was our second time with Mary and their would be a third in a couple of years.
