The Space

Tastefully appointed ground level in our 1890’s Brownstone. This one bedroom is completely private with its own entrance and garden access. It has old world charm with its original details such as wainscoting, ornamental fireplaces, exposed brick, and hardwood floors. Modern amenities include a flat screen satellite-TV, wireless internet, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer.

The large bedroom has a full sized bed and sleeps two while the modular sofas provide comfortable additional sleeping. An open plan living-room/dining area has full access to the backyard as well as 2 large couches that can be re-purposed as twin beds if need be. The kitchen is equipped with a convection oven, microwave, cookware, dishware and cutlery. The bright, clean bathroom has a full sized shower/bathtub combination and is fully stocked with towels.

Our home is located along the NYC Marathon route, just steps away from Pratt Institute, on a tree lined block in the historic neighborhood of Clinton Hill. Cozy eateries, farmer and flea markets, shops and boutiques abound. We are a short walk from Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Barclay Center and several of Brooklyn's most historical churches. The Brooklyn Museum, Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Heights Promenade are a short train, bus, or even bike ride away. Clinton Hill is uniquely central to many of Brooklyn’s other trendy neighborhoods. Subway and buses stations are less than 2 blocks from the house and it's less than a 30 minute ride into Manhattan.

If you are interested in less than 3 nights and there are immediate openings on my calendar, please feel free to make an inquiry. Do not hesitate to contact me with any other questions or concerns.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Our stay in Shirley's appartment was great. It is very clean and quiet. If you plan to stay in a typical NY residential suburb it is the place to be! All the necessary shops are really close. There is only 1 sub station really nearby (G) and another one after 5-10 minutes of walk (C). Shirley was always welcoming and smiling even though we arrived a bit late the 1st day and she allowed us to left our luggage even after check-out.

  • This was our first Airbnb experience and it was a great way to start. The place was perfect. Clean, comfortable, filled with amenities, right next to a great little cafe and a wonderful grocery store, in a terrific brooklyn neighborhood.The owners are in close proximity and clearly willing to help if needed. PERFECT! We'd recommend it to anyone and we will definitely go back again.

  • A beautiful space in a great neighborhood! We found ourselves walking more than the freezing weather would have warranted because there were so many interesting places to see, and Shirley's apartment was a cozy, comfortable home to return to at the end of a long day in NYC with a 6-year-old. Highly recommend!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this ground floor apartment. It was warm and inviting after trekking around a snow covered Brooklyn. The decor is clean and modern, yet fits the historical ambiance of the brownstone beautifully. The location is fantastic as well - just 2 blocks from the G train and 1 block from a great supermarket, with lots of shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. Shirley was a fantastic host. She was able to be flexible with our arrival and departure times, which we greatly appreciated. She respected our privacy and yet was immediately available if we needed something. I highly recommend staying here if you are in the Fort Greene / Clinton Hill area!
