About This Listing
We painted and swapped out some furniture. Pillow top, firm mattress double bed. This is looking in from doorway.
We are located in beautiful, Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. The "C" train (10 minutes to Lower Manhattan) is a 1/2 block from the building. The "G" train (for traveling between Brooklyn & Queens) is 3 blocks away. The stop for both is the Clinton-Washington stop.
At a leisurely pace I am a 15 minute walk from the 2,3,4 & 5 trains and the Brooklyn Museum on Eastern Parkway. About another 5 minutes of walking to Prospect Park. About a 10 minute walk from Fort Greene Park. The same for restaurants, bars and shopping in the area. Short train rides to Manhattan and other wonderful areas of Brooklyn like Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, Williamsburg, DUMBO, and Park Slope.
The apartment is clean and comfortable. There is basic cable, high speed DSL internet, a full size galley kitchen with a dishwasher and laundry in the building for $1.50/load. There is also a common roof deck and common backyard in the event you would like to spend a day/evening enjoying some fresh air.
Large closet with shelves that act as your dresser provided for your clothes so you don't have to live out of your suitcase.
Clean sheets and towels provided for your stay.
Brand new building, monthly preventative extermination service.
**ALL fees included in the number you see here on the website! Nothing additional once you arrive!**
Thank you for looking and I hope to hear from you!
***My acceptance rate is slightly skewed by the fact I give the first person to contact me about dates the right of first refusal if someone else tries to book with me. I have never turned down a reservation request if the dates were open and not already inquired about.***
*PLEASE READ THE 'HOUSE RULES' WHICH ARE MINIMAL*
Full access to the kitchen, living room and bathroom. Basically all areas of the apartment except our bedroom.
Interaction with Guests
We like to interact with our guests as much or as little as they want to interact with us. We work, but when we can we are happy to chat, have drinks or even share a meal. We want our guests to feel less like guests and more like friends or family.
Within walking distance there are many great restaurants and bars, the Brooklyn Museum, Prospect Park, Barclay's Center (Brooklyn Nets, concerts, and soon to be NY Islanders) and easy transportation options.
The "C" train is 1/2 block (about 150 meters) from the apartment and the "G" train is 2 1/2 blocks from the apartment. Easy to get in and out of Manhattan at any time of day.
We would hope you come to NYC, enjoy your stay and tell your friends about the wonderful place you stayed at!
Copy of passport/drivers license required upon check-in. Returned upon check-out.
Please remove shoes when inside the apartment.
No pets. NO SMOKING.
Other than that it's about common courtesy! If you use the kitchen clean up like it was your home, be quiet coming in late or leaving early.
Again, thank you for taking the time to check out this listing!
Chris and Jen have been very kind with us. They welcome us and explain all the basic things to feel like home in NY. Actually, staying with them has been just like being at home. Their cozy house was in a very good position to get to Manhattan and to start the discovery of the Big Apple...
This was our first time using AirBnB and we could not be happier with our first experience! Chris and Jen were great hosts from the time we requested a booking to the time we left. Their place is easy to find and located right next to the subway (especially easy to find with Chris's great directions), so it's very convenient and only 20 mins to Manhattan! The apartment was super clean, the room was big and comfy, and we were made to feel at home. Plus, we were greeted with a chilled homemade brew to boot! Both Chris and Jen were super friendly and helpful, giving us tips on local places to check out. Overall, a great first-time experience! The bar has been set! Would definitely recommend Chris and Jen's place to other people and would look to come again if staying in New York. Thank you!
Chris & Jen were super hospitable & have made such a wonderful room for staying in. Chris was very helpful & courteous to us. Well worth your stay.
Amazing! It was my first experience in an Airbnb house and could not be better. I received from Chris and Jenn prompt responses to my messages, many advices in order to know how to move into the city. My mother and I felt like home as soon we reach their house. The place is safe, during our stay we walk late around the neighborhood with any problem, located two blocks from metro station and a few minutes to manhattan. Many food and groceries store at one block from the house
We had a great time in NYC at Chris and Jenn´s place! The room was very comfortable and we had enough space for all our stuff. Also the rest of the apartment was great and it was very nice that we could use the kitchen. The whole apartment was very clean.
Chris and Jenn are very nice people and we really enjoyed the time we spent together. They gave us a lot of good tips for NYC and especially for Brooklyn.
The apartment is located in an area where you can find groceries and some restaurants. The Brooklyn Museum, the Botanic Garden as well as Prospect Park is just a 20 minutes walk from the apartment. The next C train station is just around the corner.
We can highly recommend Chris and Jenn´s place! Thank you for everything.
