House rules
This place isn’t suitable for children under 12 and the host doesn’t allow pets, parties, or smoking.
We offer a completely smoke free, private, clean, and safe 650 square foot apartment, a respite during COVID, a place to get away for a few days in a clean, safe environment to relax and unwind. Our space is suitable for up to two adults only. If you're booking for two guests, please be sure and reflect that in your booking request. Our space is not offered for large gatherings, or parties. Anyone violating COVID house safety/no smoking rules must leave immediately without a refund.

The space
If you're looking for a home and not just another apartment, read this. Our space is a clean, healthy, safe alternative to staying in Manhattan and many other spaces. It is a 650 square foot, private apartment with no shared bathrooms or kitchens. Everything is here for your use. As you may know, being in a brownstone is not like being in an apartment building. The house, over 130 years old, is owner-occupied (by an interior designer and a retired 9/11 fireman). The Airbnb is on the second (or parlor) floor. You can also have a peek at the space by searching Jarret Yoshida on Vimeo. We offer clean, safe, luxe, and comfortable accommodations a stone's throw away from Manhattan. The entire 650 square foot apartment is your own private space. Bedroom, living room, bathroom, kitchen, and dining area all to yourself. Your bedroom and bath are located in the back for quiet and privacy.
Jarret’s office is on the top floor. We live on the ground floor and we have a tenant on the third. We would like you to know more about your hosts as well. Finding a beautiful space to stay is great, being comfortable enough to consider it home is better. Part of that is knowing who's home you're staying in.

For a great view of the space, please visit Vimeo and enter Jarret Yoshida in the search.

Jarret owns his own interior design business and has meticulously brought this house back to its former beauty. Originally from Hawaii, he has called New York City home for over 20 years now. He attended Punahou School, USC, and Waseda University in Tokyo. Beginning his design studies at the Corcoran Gallery School in Washington, DC, he went on to Parsons and FIT in New York and, most recently, the École des Beaux Arts et Décoratifs in Paris. After apprenticing with a well-known designer, he founded his own company in 2002 to pursue his unique vision. He is on the board of Womankind, helping women and children escape domestic violence, sexual slavery, and human trafficking in New York City. He has also been on the board of an animal rescue group in Brooklyn and done charity work for Housing Works as well. He is formerly of the not for profit world in DC as well, having done fundraising for the Smithsonian and Human Rights Campaign.

Dan, originally from Long Island, has been partnered with Jarret for over 18 years now. Dan, a Marine Corps veteran was also a firefighter and served at the World Trade Center on 9/11. He has also worked in DC to get the WTC Health & Compensation Act passed, and worked on veterans healthcare legislation as well. Dan continues his advocacy work for veterans and both in New York City and in Washington DC. He belongs to the NYC Veterans Alliance, he is a pre 9/11 veteran member of the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America as well as the Marine Corps League. He suffers from multiple chronic illnesses from his 9/11 work but finds strength in advocating for others on the local and national level. Dan was a Marine Corps combat engineer from 1984 to 1988. He was a Combat Engineer with the 2nd Marine Division, Camp Lejeune, NC, and then became a firefighter with Engine Company 216, Freeport, NY.

Guest access
You will have an entire floor for your own private use. The space is clean, private, and safe. You will not have exposure to anyone during your stay. A living room, kitchen and dining room, bedroom, with a queen-size bed and a master, en-suite bathroom. The entire 650 square feet apartment is yours. We have WiFi and TV. The TV includes HULU, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Weather, News, Youtube, and more.

You can also use the office, printer, and computer if needed. If you are dropping bags off early you can also make use of the office/office bathroom if you like.

Other things to note
There is a limit on two adult guests at a time in the apartment per reservation. Because of COVID we also do not allow gatherings in the space. If you would like to have a guest or two over, please ask ahead of time.

This is a non smoking (of any kind) space. Guests who smoke in the space will be charged an extra cleaning fee of $150.

We ask that everyone wear masks while in the hallways.

Early bag drop-off and late bag pick-up can certainly be arranged. If you are in earlier than check-in or staying after you can drop and leave your bags in the space.

Depending on the housekeeper's schedule, and if there is someone booked before or after you, early check-in and late check-out can also be arranged.

We offer a discount of 5% for active duty military, veterans and first responders (fire, police, EMS). It is a small way of thanking our first responder, military and veteran family. When booking please note that you are military or a veteran. We ask if you could send an image of your ID or other qualifying documents (kept strictly confidential) and we will discount your stay. Dan is a retired firefighter and veteran, and Jarret comes from a family line of military service.

Location

Brooklyn, New York, United States

Location, location location. It is always about location.

3 blocks to LIRR Nostrand Avenue stop for easy access to the beach and LI.
A quick 15-20 minute ride gets you to the W. Village or Chelsea. Just over 10 to Wall Street and under 5 to Ft. Greene.
1 short block from huge Super Foodtown supermarket (better than D'Agostino's), post office, Citibank and Chase and TD Bank.
New Blink Fitness just around the corner and 10 minute run to the nearby YMCA
Restaurants, banks, cafes and convenient shopping are all over the neighborhood.
We are also a very convenient subway ride from all museums, Broadway shows, the Mets, Yankees, US Open, Nets, Knicks, Rangers, Islanders, concerts at Madison Square Garden and Barclays Arena and more.
