About this listing
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.)
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.
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.
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 2 friendly cats at home.
No smoking. No pets. Rooms on top floor of a family-owned Victorian house. Please be considerate. You are asked to kindly take off your shoes and leave them at the entrance. We also ask all our guests to be reasonable in the use of water and energy. Unplug all appliances when not at home. No open flames, such as candles.
Foi uma estada muito boa na casa da Mary, nós gostamos muito. O quarto aconchegante, limpo, arejado e ensolarado. A anfitriã nos auxiliou com tudo, desde os metrôs até os itens q necessitávamos na casa. A casa corresponde com o anúncio. O sinal da internet é fraco no quarto. Recomendo.
It was our first visit to the USA and New York. Mary was a very friendly and helpful host. Late check-in was no problem. Our room was very clean and the bed was good. The bathroom and kitchenette were also very clean. We've shared the bathroom with another airbnb couple, so sometimes we had to wait, but this was no big problem to us. The subway was about 10 minutes walk. We had a great time in NYC and we highly recommend Mary's place.
Great place for a city trip to New York!
The room is really very nice and cosy and we enjoyed our stay 100%. Everything is just as described on the photos. Reaching Manhattan and the sight seeing places worked easily and took just a few minutes to walk.
Mary was very friendly and helpful, cared for everything and we really recommend this place. Thank you very much, Mary!
We had a really wonderful week staying with Mary and her family :-) It's a wonderful and genuine neighborhood and we would absolutely want to go back :-) We highly recommend staying here 3
We really enjoyed staying at Mary's place. As we arrived she and her son gave us a proper introduction to the house and we felt welcome right from the start. The neighborhood was lovely and the room was cozy and quiet.
We had a very pleasant time in Mary's house. The neighborhood is nice, quiet and you can find a lot of restaurants, shops and bars close. You can go to Manhattan very easily. Mary is a perfect host!
Mary is a very friendly host who would help us whenever we needed help. The neighborhood is great and major subway lines around the corner.
The room was clean and cosy. You must like cats though.
I can recommend the place.
