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!
The house is extremely clean and neat, Chris is so kind however keep our private totally. It is the place I'd like to recommend to my friend and family.
We had a wonderful stay in New York !
Chris and Jenn are very smart people, easing going, nice to meet and to discuss. The condo is very well located for a stay in NYC. We will come back !
Chris and Jenn are friendly hosts who are more than willing to aid you during your stay.
Apartment was well situated next to a subway station (a minute walk).
Neighbourhood felt safe and fantastic eateries all within walking distance.
Room was cosy and comfortable, only thing to note was that light sleepers may be affected by the usual street noise coming from outside the window despite being a couple of floors up. No issues for me though.
All in all a very pleasant stay and would definitely choose Chris and Jenn again if I were to visit the area.
This was my second experience with airbnb in New York and this time it was Amazing !! We didn't see Jen a lot but Chris was the perfect host from the day he welcomed us to the moment we left. He gave us a lot of very good recommendations (subway & restaurant, where to go see the sunrise on manhattan....), the flat was very clean, the bed very comfortable. And on top of that, Chris make his own beer and it's very tasty !!!
Even when we were on the go, Chris was answering to my texts to recommend us place to go, that was so helpful.
Only one regret, we was so busy that we didn't had time to spend a bit more time with them.
The house located in a convenient and safe area. The house and room were lovely and clean. Really loved that place!!
Cold beer on a hot day is hard to beat,the room is as described only better!!!
Chris and Jenn are a very nice host! The room is exactly the same as the description, which is very comfortable. The roof top is a nice place to relax. Everything is very clean. This place is near to the subway station. Cannot think of any reason not staying here.
About the Host, Chris And Jenn
Easy going, positive, life loving couple with a curiosity about new things. We are interested in the concept of airbnb and think it would be interesting to host people from around the world.
