A completely private apartment that is beautiful, comfortable and chemical free, in one of Brooklyn's most attractive, convenient, and family-friendly areas. We have a 2 night minimum but no cleaning fee or hidden costs. Guests are treated like old friends and much is offered!
We are a Green Guest House. We cater to the chemically sensitive, allergic, and/or environmentally concerned guest. We recycle and use resources responsibly.
Our guest house is a one flight walk up. It is a private apartment in our 2-family home. The unit is not shared with any other guests. 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, but any extra people staying overnight is an extra fee and must be cleared ahead of time. Large and/or loud parties are strictly forbidden as this is our home where children are living and where we respect our neighbors.
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.
Other things to note
We are as flexible as possible with arrival and departure times. Depending on the situation, late night arrivals are fine. After check-out guests are also able to store luggage with us during the day if they have late night airport departures.
Pricing is increased after 2 adults but is negotiable for stays a week or more. Children 12 and under are free.
We try to keep our rate affordable by not charging a cleaning fee. Due to this we ask that all guests wash their own dishes and do their best to treat the apartment as they would their own home.
There is absolutely no smoking, no loud parties, and no pets allowed.
I live in Brooklyn, NY. I am a fellow Airbnb host, but also work as a forensic social worker in NYC. I have a husband and young child and we love hosting guests and we love Airbnb. We are serious environmentalists, which is why we opened a "green" guest house. We are active members of the Green Party in NY as well.
