About this listing

The space

OUR PLACE:
"The Best Kept Secret in Park Slope!" writes a recent guest.
Ideally situated on First St, in the heart of trendy Park Slope close to 5th Avenue, we offer a freshly painted sunny bedroom on the top floor of our 1888 one family brownstone.

The light filled room overlooks a quiet tree lined street. Guests have their own entrance to the house “up the stoop”on the second floor level, separated from the family space. Please be aware that we have a bit of a climb to the top floor!
There is a spacious bathroom with an extra wide mirror and double hand basins, hair dryer and radio.
A separate toilet room with small hand basin.
Both are private for guest use only.
We supply fresh linens and towels, shampoo and soap.

Washer / dryer near the bathroom is available for a reasonable charge, including detergent.

The bedroom sleeps two and has the original shutters, comfortable full sized bed with duvet, desk and chair, armchair, large closet space, two chests of drawers, luggage rack, mirror, air conditioning, ceiling fan, good internet and Wifi reception, mini fridge, coffee maker and electric kettle. We provide bottled water, china cups, plates, bowls, silverware, napkins, a selection of tea bags, instant coffee and a bowl of fruit. Paper goods and coffee filters are kept in top drawer of dresser. For light sensitive guests we cover the shutters with black felt. Guests are welcome to bring food and refreshments back to the room.

We reserved a room at Diana's for 3 weeks during the summer after I had a baby and my mom came to visit. Diana was a terrific hostess and the perfect combination of very warm/welcoming, helpful yet unobtrusive. Her home is centrally located in the heart of Park Slope on a beautiful tree-lined street, just a short walk from Grand Army Plaza, Prospect Park and multiple subway lines including the 2/3, Q, B and R trains. The room itself was on the second floor of Diana's charming and well-maintained brownstone, and although there are multiple guest rooms on the floor and the space is well-suited for hosting larger families/groups, my mom had the floor to herself as Diana does not host multiple groups at the same time (ie you don't have to share a bathroom with people you don't know). The location and setup are perfect for people who don't want to spend a ton of money on a tiny Manhattan hotel room but still want easy access into the City, folks visiting family members, wedding guests and the like. The room itself was spacious and comfortable, very well lit and clean -- exactly what we were looking for. My mom had a great stay and we'd definitely recommend this host to others!

Great place to stay in Brooklyn, Diana is thoughtful and very helpful, the place is great for a family/ group of people wanting to do NYC like we did.

Diana is such a great person, our family members from China stayed at her house for three weeks and they very enjoyed her hosting. The rooms are cozy and clean, big bathroom with laundry in door. Easy access to many restaurants and shops in park slope. Our family members don't speak English, Diana (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) translated the goodbye note in Chinese along with the cute souvenirs the night before my parents checked out. That was very nice and sweet!

We really enjoyed our stay at Diana's place. We were late checking in due to a train delay, but nevertheless found Diana patiently waiting to welcome us into our home despite the late hour. She was a very gracious host and gave us tips on making our way around Brooklyn, and furnished us with snacks and bottles of water. Would definitely recommend for future stays.

The apartment was clean and comfortable and had all we needed for our short stay, with a mini fridge, coffeemaker, fruit and beautiful bouquet of daffodils. Very convenient location in Park Slope. Easy to communicate with Diana by text. We’d be happy to stay here again.

Great Park Slope location but even better room. We had the whole upper floor to ourselves. Large bedroom, very large private bath with two sinks. Mini fridge and coffee maker in room. Very good Wi-Fi. Diana is a wonderful host.
