Interaction with Guests
We usually give guests plenty of privacy but we love it when we get to know our guests, too. It all depends!
Lefferts Garden is Brooklyn’s best kept secret! Up and coming, safe, diverse neighborhood; interesting blend of artists/musicians, young professionals with family friendly Caribbean community. It gives you a taste of real NY. Our main attraction is the Prospect Park (Make sure to check out the farmer’s market every Saturday). The apartment building is right in front of the park. It is perfect for morning runners and strollers! We are also very close to the lake side and the boat house (Ice Skating Rink just opened if you are visiting during the winter months.) Brooklyn Museum, Botanical Gardens, Prospect Park Zoo and Brooklyn Public Library are all within walking distance. Walk one block towards Flatbush Ave, you will find everything you need from grocery stores, drugstores, laundromat, liquor shops, restaurants, bars and cafes!
Easy access to Manhattan. Our apartment is only a block away (less than 1min walk) from the metro line ( Q, B, S. 15-20min to Downtown, 30min to Times Square.) Or stay local, just 5 minute Subway ride to Barclay Center, Park Slope, and downtown Brooklyn. Williamsburg / Greenpoint? No problem! B41 & B43 Buses leave right around the corner! You can simply take the Q train to the last stop, it will take you to the famous Coney Island in 20min. If you drive, finding a parking is surprisingly easy. A gas station is a few block away on Flatbush Ave.

Please kindly take the shoes off in the apartment. Thank you!
Everything was great in iko's flat! Really just one minute walk to subway. We hadn't the pleasure to meet iko but we met her friend and he helped us with really great recommendations. We would like to come back! Thank you for the cool time there

We had a great stay at Iko´s place! The room was very clean and it looked exactly as in the photos. Iko is very nice and helpful so as her friend Anibal. The location is convenient and just two minutes walk to subway. We would definitely recommend this place!
Nice location near park, very close to subway. Big and nice room, reasonable price. Iko's guide and information about neighbourhood plus other info about Manhattan were very helpfull. We recommend this place. Stanko&Nika
Iko's place was great! It was very near the subway and right in front of the park. Its a block away from everything you need, laundromat, grocery, metroPCS, cafes, everything! Its in an interesting and diverse neighborhood but we felt safe even if some nights we went home late. The room had enough space for us and is exactly as in the photos. Saw iko a few times and she was lovely. Her partner was the one who checked us in and helped us with our bags. It was an over all great New York experience! Thanks Iko!
The room was nice, the bed comfortable, very close to the subway. There wasn't any welcome, on the contrary. Also, no breakfast, as in two previous airbnb places.
Thank you for staying at our place, and sorry to hear that it was not 100% satisfactory. I was abroad due to my mother passing away, I regret that I was not present to welcome her. To be fair, our service might be minimal, but our price is minimal, too. We provide everything we list. (I don't believe we are misleading anyone by not mentioning that there is no breakfast.) Again, I am sorry to hear that you didn't have pleasant stay, hope you have a better experience with Airbnb next time. Best wishes.
Staying here was a very nice experience. Exactly like it was advertised. Clean, quiet, beautiful. Iko was unable to be there when we arrived, but she made sure there was someone to look after us. If you're looking for a convenient and inexpensive place to lay your head when in NYC, this is a great fit. The common area is small though, so I wouldn't recommend it if you want to stay in the place a lot.
Iko was in Japan during our trip but her partner Anibal was here to give us the keys and explain everything. He was very friendly and available when we had few questions. The room was exactly like we could imagine with the pics and very clean. Excellent localization with a beautiful park ( Prospect Park ) and the botanic garden. Just 1 block and 3 mins walking for the subway. Obviously we recommend this place. Thank you Anibal and Iko. Best. Michael and Laura
