About this listing
We are a Green Guest House. We cater to the chemically sensitive, allergic, and/or environmentally concerned guest. We limit toxic environmental exposures by not permitting toxic cleaning agents of any kind. Our main bed has a new organic mattress and our sheets and towels are organic as well. We provide an air filter (if desired), filtered drinking water and even the shower is filtered! We recycle and use resources responsibly. We also provide wired internet access (and a computer!) to minimize EMF exposure.
Our guest house is a one flight walk up. It is an apartment in our 2-family home. So, we are frequently available to answer questions, give directions/advice and even act as "concierge". The space consists of a full kitchen, bathroom with shower and claw foot bathtub, living room with pull out couch & dining table, and a separate sleeping alcove. It is best for 2 people, but can accommodate up to 4 adults.
We are located in the very popular Brooklyn neighborhood of Park Slope, which was been touted as one of the 10 best neighborhoods the the USA! There are countless restaurants, cafes, clubs, museums, and the famous Prospect Park. Enjoy the amazing Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Museum, Prospect Park Zoo, Brooklyn Academy of Music (aka BAM), and on and on. We are also only 3 blocks from 2 major train lines (R & F) and Manhattan is only a 20 minute train ride away!
Guests are welcome to have friends visit, however large or loud parties are strictly forbidden as this is our home and we have a young child etc.
Interaction with Guests
We greet our guests in person and usually see them on their way in and out. We are available most of the time for questions and assistance. If we have to be away for any length of time, our guests are made aware of that much ahead of time.
Park Slope is an extremely beautiful, safe, and family-friendly neighborhood. There is lots to do and see.
We are located only two and a half blocks from 3 major subway lines, the "F", "R", and "G". There are also buses just half a block away.
Pricing is increased after 2 adults but is negotiable for stays a week or more. Children 12 and under are free.
For those interested in experiencing how real people live in New York, we recommend staying at Dani's in Brooklyn. Dani is very warm and welcoming, and this apartment is in a lovely quiet, tree-lined street - a great respite after our long, international flight. We felt like locals in a couple of days - nearby cafes are friendly, provide good food and are keen to accomodate food intolerances. Although Manhatten is only a short subway trip away - with all the must-see places - we highly recommend allocating some time to experience this local neighborhood, including a few hours wandering through the delightful, Prosect Park.
All essential items (and more) are provided by Dani and her environmentally-friendly approach is a treat when travelling.
Dani's Park Slope Green Guest House was the perfect, reasonably-priced accommodations for our week in New York. The neighborhood is safe and quiet, with diverse dining and grocery shopping options, especially along 5th Avenue, less than a block away. The apartment was clean and comfortable, with easy access to nearby subways and bus routes, enabling us to get around Brooklyn and into Manhattan with ease. Dani is a delightful, thoughtful host who provided the apartment with interesting, informative, off-the-beaten-path tourist-oriented reading materials, as well as cable TV. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her place to other intrepid Airbnb travelers.
We have just concluded our 3rd time staying at Dani's wonderful Park Slope Green Guest Nest. What a privilege it is to stay in such a wholesome, safe, spotless and charming apartment - just upstairs from Dani herself. Space does not allow me to elaborate overmuch - our past reviews stand - we would not change a single thing about our stay. Seriously - not a thing. We cannot even imagine staying elsewhere when staying in the NYC area. We cannot think of another way to pay to someone the highest compliment possible but that we don't even consider staying anywhere else. We have shopped around - thoroughly, and firmly believe it would be impossible to find better accommodations - and even more important to us - find another airbnb host that is more gracious, trustworthy, honest, helpful - Dani and her family are the dream family everybody wishes lived next door, or downstairs, or.........We still can't quite figure out just how we got so lucky and fell upstairs - literally:) Dani's Green Guest House comes completely stocked with everything essential thing to make your stay comfortable. Additional bonuses - Bus/Subway literally just steps away. Grocery stores, restaurants, bakeries - again just steps away. Yet while being so close to everything, Dani's delightful apartment is a tranquil retreat situated on a lovely, quiet, extremely safe and sunny street. We have walked the neighborhood at all times of the day and quite late into the night yet never once felt uneasy in this great family neighborhood. We know there will come a time when due to Dani's great reputation on airbnb she will be fully booked thus we will have to search elsewhere (knuckles dragging) But until then we would (and have) drastically changed our plans in order to once again have the privilege of staying at Dani's Green Guest House. We cannot possibly recommend Dan's place enough. We can only hope we were good guests ourselves.
Dani ist eine wirklich tolle Gastgeberin gewesen. Sie hat sich schon im Vorfeld unserer Ankunft mit uns in Verbindung gesetzt, um sicherzugehen, dass wir den sichersten und besten Anfahrtsweg nehmen. Ihr Haus liegt in einer ruhigen und schönen Straße in Brooklyn. Die Wohnung befindet sich im ersten Stock und ist komplett ausgestattet. Eine Klimaanlage ist auch vorhanden. Es befinden sich Karten der Subway und verschiedene Umgebungspläne in der Wohnung. Es gab auch WiFi und ein iMac steht zusätzlich zur Verfügung. Das Bett ist groß und bequem gewesen. Von Danis Haus ist man in drei Minuten an der Subway und innerhalb von zehn Minuten kann man sich durch alle Facetten des Essensangebotes Brooklyns futtern. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind auch bis spät abends vorhanden. Frühstückmöglichkeiten sind mehr als genug da. Bis Flatbush geht man etwa 20 Minuten und taucht dabei sehr gut in das Leben Brooklyns ein. Manhatten ist innerhalb von 15 Minuten zu erreichen, JFK in etwa einer Stunde per Bahn. La Guardia geht eigentlich nur per Taxi und kostet etwa 38$, was aber nicht an der Lage der Wohnung liegt, sondern daran, dass La Guardia ohne ÖPNV-Anschluss ist.
Wir können Dani und ihre Unterkunft jedem ans Herz legen, dem Manhattan zum Wohnen zu laut und hektisch ist und der vielleicht eine andere Seite New Yorks fernab der Glas- und Stahlarchitektur entdecken möchte.
My family and I had an awesome vacaton!
My wife, my 10-Years-Old son and I spent 30 days in July 2015 at Dani's house and everything was absolutely perfect. Dani is a great host and her apartment is very confortable and better than described in Airbnb. Dani's house is a perfect place for one day one week or on month. We felt lide it was home and we would definitely stay in Dani´s house again on our next vacation in NYC.
We could not have chosen a better host or lodgings for our first airbnb experience. The guest house was perfect for the two of us and is in a wonderful neighborhood. Dani makes it easy for guests to be environmentally conscious, and I really appreciated staying in a space where chemical cleaners and deodorizers are not used. In addition, Dani was a great host. She met us very early in the morning on the day of our arrival so we could leave our bags even though check-in wasn't until later in the day. She also provided some great recommendations for outings and meals.
5 star accommodations. We had such a great time. This apartment place gives your a feeling that its been lived in, not like a standard hotel room. Refrigerator and pantry are equipped with stuff previous tenants left behind. This place is the perfect size for a couple to stay. Park Slope has some amazing restaurants and shops. We recommend the first day you get there to walk down 5th avenue and see what's around. Our favorite restaurants were Stone Park Cafe and Talde. Prospect Park is in walking distance and the Brooklyn Bridge park is a few train stops away. Overall we had a great time and would definitely come back.
