The Space

Welcome to our Park Slope, Brooklyn home - only 15 minutes on the subway to Manhattan, tons of trains within walking distance, 2 blocks to New York's greatest park (yes, I think Prospect Park is better than Central Park), big kitchen, comfortable living room, a backyard to relax in... and (if it's alright for me to say so) one of the friendliest hostesses you can find.

Joining me in my beautiful home, you'll have:
A backyard outdoor swimming pool and garden!
Wireless Internet Access
Queen Size Bed- extremely comfortable
Additional Twin Air Mattress should you need it
Private Bathroom (you're the only one showering etc here, but we may pop in to use the lieu on occassion)
Large Closet
$25 Gift Certificate to spend at your choice of NYC/Brooklyn Restaurant

Of course, I'll offer help to make your trip great with ideas and recommendations

I have access to discounted Broadway and OffBroadway theatre too - so let me know what you want to see! I can save you money.

Within 5-10 minutes walk there are literally over 50 restaurants and stores

Easy transportation to Manhattan, to Williamsburg and to Queens. Within a 5 minute walk: R Train. Within a 10 minute walk: Q, B, D,2. 3, 4,5, . G. F trains. Multiple bus lines as well.

Car Service to airport is affordable and I can recommend reliable companies.

Note: i do not have cable TV but some basic channels come through on the TV in the bedroom. If you are here for a long visit and really want cable, we can add it for you for an additional charge.

  • My stay with Amy was great... She is a class act... Perfect place if you would like to share a great stay in one of the nicest parts of Brooklyn... !! 10 out of 10 rating!!!

  • David and I were pleased with Amy's space. Her location is terrific, close to many shops and restaurants. Her home is comfortable and her kitchen is well stocked with everything you'd need for cooking. She made us feel comfortable. We were visiting my grown sons and my grandchildren, so we didn't (email hidden) much except to sleep and have breakfast.

    The room is small but adequate. The private bathroom is across the hall, small, could have been a little bit cleaner. We'd give it a 3 1/2 stars.

  • Great experience, I would have loved being able to talk a bit more and stay a bit longer, but there will certainly be a next time!! Thanks Amy!!

  • Amy was one of the most gracious, friendly, and helpful hosts I've encountered through AirBnB. She provided a very comfortable living situation, as well as a great dinner partner! I highly recommend her, whether short or long-term, she's great. Thanks again Amy!

  • Comfortable room in a great location with a gregarious and pleasant host. I stayed a full week and had to change my plans at the last minute moving my dates and Amy was very accommodating. I would highly recommend this for someone wanting to be in the heart of Park Slope with very easy access to Manhattan.

  • Absolutely perfect location. Lovely house. Convenient lay-out in terms of the actual room (bathroom right nearby; ditto re kitchen). Rigorous, professional hosts. Great communication; accessible; thorough.

  • Amy’s place is very nice as well as she is. Amy was being very helpful with everything we needed. The bed was so comfortable, kitchen had everything you could think of, the bathroom was clean and the borough was very safe, quiet and all the stores you might need (grocery, restaurants, wine) were close. The metro station was only about 5min walks. Amy provided us with all the information about the subway system, recommended us where to shop in Manhattan and my girlfriend and I enjoyed the stay! It is a good choice

About
Hi there! I'm Amy - a creative, outgoing, and friendly person always up to something interesting. I'm happy to open my home to travelers - to share stories, NY insider tips (I've been here 10 years) and kick back on the couch or in our lovely backyard over a glass of wine with new friends. I work as a theatre/drama teacher in the afternoons and spend my mornings growing my entrepreneurial ventures. Outside of work, I tend to go to theatre, dance, yoga-class, make music, go out to dinner with friends. I enjoy getting out in nature. I love traveling and exploring - and take opportunities to try new restaurants and visit new neighborhoods in my own city as well. On Sundays, I sing with a gospel choir in Manhattan - you're welcome to come check us out while you're in town! Things I love to eat- chocolate, garlic-y anything, wine, and all kinds of dumplings - Chinese Pot Stickers, Ravioli, Pelmeni, Gyoza, Vareniki... you name it, I love it! You will get major bonus points as a guest if you know how to make a delicious dumpling! Stuff I love to talk about - spirituality, travel, art, philosophical ideas, business, creative ideas and projects...and people! i love to learn all about people and what lights them up. My roommate and friend, Melanie, moved here from New Zealand via Chicago. She has great curiosity and energy. Melanie works in the travel industry and enjoys meeting new people. She asks great questions and is wonderful to spend time with. Melanie brings a fresh perspective to living in NY since she is newer here and will have different insights for you than my suggestions. We both look forward to meeting you
