The apartment is in a vibrant multi-cultural area in Brooklyn conveniently located a 2-min. walk away from the subway (G-train) which connects you to anywhere in the city. Bright, beautiful and clean with original details and artfully decorated.

The space


The bedroom is spacious, bright and clean, in a lovingly renovated apartment in a modern style with classic details. The subway (G-line) is only 2 min. away and connects to many major lines that quickly bring you to Manhattan or other areas in Brooklyn or Queens.

The apartment is on the 2nd floor (3rd floor in the US) walk-up in a classic Brooklyn brownstone. It has been lovingly renovated and furnished. Many of the original details are still intact and give the apartment a special charm. The street is generally quiet for New York standards, with the bedroom to the rear. Perfect to relax and unwind after a busy day in the city.
The Apt. is comfortably warm in the winter and cooled with air conditioning on hot days, if desired, in the summer.
The guest bedroom has a queen size bed with a very comfortable mattress and a closet. Privacy is guaranteed. It can also be locked from the inside if you want.

The kitchen is available for your use. It has a bar where you can have your meals. You're welcome to help yourself with condiments. For everything else please make your own arrangements. A supermarket is 5 min. away. You can use the fridge for your groceries.
Bathroom has a tub/shower, sink, toilet.
- fresh towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash
- hair dryer, curling iron and straightening iron
- Fresh linens

I recently adopted a dog. He is quiet and very clean, and the sweetest guy who loves everything and everybody! But should you have allergies or a dislike for dogs, I will make sure he will not have any access to the common areas.
Since I work mostly from home, I'm usually available to answer questions. I'm happy to give advice to the things you can do in New York. I love this city and I have called it home for many years; I know it inside and out.

I just returned from a three day stay at Kerstin's place. I loved it. She was a wonderful host, and so was her apartment. The next time I'm back up to Brooklyn I hope her place is not booked!

Kerstin's place is bright, spacious, stylish, and clean. She was very welcoming and helpful. I would definitely stay here again, especially when traveling with my family and young daughter.

Hey there,
I am an interior and product designer with a penchant for everything creative and making things: from artwork to clothes, jewelry, furniture...
I enjoy meeting people from all backgrounds. As an avid traveler I've been lucky enough to have been all over Europe, visited places in the Far and Middle East, Africa and Central America. But my bucket list goes on and on and on...
I am very fortunate to have this awesome apartment and I'm looking forward to sharing it with you. So excited to meet you and hear all about what brings you to New York. My goal is to make your stay as comfortable, enjoyable as possible, and to show you why you should love Brooklyn and NYC as much as I do!
I came originally from Germany 20 years ago, and I know the city better than any other place.

My motto: "Just be yourself! Life is good!"

Looking forward to meeting you!
