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.
From the moment my husband and I arrived, our host Dani made us feel warmly welcome. She was friendly and helpful and we very much enjoyed our conversations with her! Our first floor apartment was comfortable and well equipped and generously supplied with everything to make a traveller feel immediately at home, from organic shampoo to a well stocked pantry. We enjoyed exploring the local neighbourhood, and can vouch for Dani's recommendations: the Green Kitchen for a tasty meal and Cafe Regular for very good coffee. Prospect Park is nearby and a lovely place to stroll during the beautiful spring weather we experienced. Our Park Slope apartment was not only a great place for getting to know Brooklyn, but also a perfect base for seeing the rest of New York, with the subway to Manhattan being just a couple of blocks away. We would definitely recommend this apartment for anyone wanting a great place to stay in Brooklyn/ New York.
We came to Brooklyn for my brother's wedding. We needed a sleeping arrangement for 2 nights. Upon arrival, we realized that we would actually need only 1 night to spend at the apartment. When the evening came, my baby fell asleep at my brother's apartment and we didn't want to wake him up. I asked Dani if that was ok if my parents spent the night there instead of us and she was more than understanding.
Dani was extremely nice and responsive through the entire process, the apartment was exactly as in the description. I just wish we had a chance to enjoy it more :)
Très bon accueil. Dani est serviable, souriante et très gentille. L'appartement est fidèle aux photographies et très bien équipé. Il est situé à 20-30 min de Manhattan, dans un quartier sympa, proche de Prospect Park où il faut absolument aller se promener... Un + non négligeable : possibilité de laisser ses bagages chez Dani après le check-out et avant de prendre l'avion.
Merci Dani :)
Nous gardons votre adresse pour un prochain voyage !
Dany did everything to make us feel home. From giving us tips on how to get to the place, to allowing us to leave our bags before check-in and check-out. I stayed there with my parents and 2 year old and we enjoyed it! The organic tea and coffee made available in the apartment made us feel welcome (and my son loved the cereals and puzzles). We will definitely come back.
