The 10 Coolest Airbnb Rentals in New York, Timeout New York, 2014

"Staying with Jessica at the historic mansion was quite a remarkable experience. It was not only one of the nicest homes I have ever stayed at on Airbnb, but Jessica made one of the best breakfasts that I have ever had . . . better than any breakfast spot we found, so if you stay here, I recommend sticking around for breakfast. The photos do not do the first floor justice. It is massive, but also very charming. We stayed in the top floor, and the room was beautifully designed and arranged for us. After staying with Jessica, I would recommend it as one of the best Airbnbs in New York, and a must visit if you want to experience the authenticity of a Brooklyn brownstone neighborhood, the charm of an historic mansion, and the soul of Jessica's hospitality. In other words, this is a 6 star experience, even though we only allow 5 stars to be left."

~ Brian Chesky, Co-founder and CEO, Airbnb



Built in 1887, this magnificent landmarked 10,000 square foot historic brownstone is one of Brooklyn's architectural gems. Located in Clinton Hill, where early industrialists built their mansions along quiet tree-lined streets, this neighborhood is the borough's most culturally and architecturally interesting and is now home to many noted writers, artists and musicians. The house has been meticulously restored and decorated with beautiful vintage modern furnishings and museum-quality art; 19th century opulence meets 21st century Brooklyn cool. As a guest, you will enjoy relaxed yet attentive service in an atmosphere of quiet understated luxury; the bedding and other amenities are of the highest quality. Breakfast is prepared daily using seasonal local and organic ingredients. The location is perfect for exploring the rich cultural offerings of Brooklyn, which has been described as one of the hippest places on the planet. You will find, within walking distance, wonderful "Brooklyn food movement" restaurants, BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music), Brooklyn Museum of Art, Botanical Garden, Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Flea, Fort Greene Park, the Pratt Sculpture Garden and the Green Market. With easy access to mass transit, it is also just minutes from other Brooklyn neighborhoods and Manhattan.

Please note that a continental breakfast is provided daily and arrangements may be made for a full brunch -- prix fixe $30.00.

Under New York law, short term rentals (less than 30 days) are not permitted when the owner/renter is away. Although legal when the owner/renter is present, many multi-unit building's leases and bylaws prohibit short term rentals.

Many guests are being asked not to mention Airbnb and to say that they are simply friends of the host. In buildings where such renting is prohibited the management can remove a guest. Ask if you are renting legally before booking.



Guest Access

Guests have access to the kitchen, dining room, living room, and tv room in addition to their guest room.

Interaction with Guests

While this is a shared house, which means that you will see us eating, entertaining and relaxing, we try to respect the level of interaction that our guests desire.

The Neighborhood

Clinton Hill was recently voted The Most Livable Neighborhood in Brooklyn by L-Magazine!

This is the best neighborhood in New York City. It is friendly, diverse, laid-back, and urban. The restaurants are great. The people are wonderful and the architecture is beautiful!

Getting Around

G and C trains, local taxis and car services, walking and bicycling.

Other Things to Note

1. We have two free-roaming dogs. Knuckie is a young, sweet and energetic Boxer and Klaus is a very relaxed older Puggle.
