Large, Sunny, Inviting Private Bedroom in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn
Private House-Private Room, Westminster Rd., Brooklyn 11218
Spacious private room on second floor of a free-standing house in the Victorian Flatbush neighborhood of Ditmas Park. Quiet residential street. Garden view. Comfy full-sized bed, premium cable, free wifi. Semi-private bath on first floor. This house was used as a set for the feature films “Definitely, Maybe” with Ryan Reynolds, “Solitary Man” with Michael Douglas and Danny DeVito, and the TV series “Damages” with Glenn Close. Considered one of the best-kept secrets in New York, Ditmas Park boasts suburban living in the Big Apple. Tree-lined streets, Victorian houses, front porches, not what is typically expected of the New York experience. Very accesible to public transportation, walking distance to Prospect Park, easy commute to Coney Island in one direction and Manhattan in the other. Our neighborhood provides the best of both worlds, however, because right down the block is a veritable restaurant row reflecting the diversity of the neighborhood with Japanese, Filipino, Mexican, Middle Eastern and Tibetan restaurants, among others.
Room can comfortably accomodate 2 adults, possibly one child but no infants or toddlers due to staircase.

My boyfriend and I had a great stay with Alice and Stan. They were very friendly and welcoming, and Alice helped us navigate around the neighborhood and also gave us some tips for riding the subway. The bedroom was clean, nice and warm, and the breakfast choices were very nice. The neighborhood is a fun place to walk around, especially with Prospect Park nearby and the subway station a few blocks away. We also met their daughter and her boyfriend during our stay, and they were equally friendly and nice to chat with. I am a cat person, so it was a perk that they had two cats around as well :)
We've stayed in Alice's place for 5 days . It was very cozy ! Alice and Stan are very warmhearted , they had a party at Christmas , a lot of musicians wre there . It was awesome ! However we wre too tired to join the party , what a pity .
The room was absolutely beautiful. Alice had stocked some delicious snacks, and Stan was very kind and gave me helpful recommendations and directions for nearby places. I would certainly book again if I am in the area again.
I stayed at Alice's home for three nights. She and Stan were warm and welcoming. The large house is on a residential street in Bklyn near the Subway and in a safe area. The large room is comfortable and homey and spotlessly clean. The fridge is stocked well and there is a choice of cereal for breakfast. Bathroom is downstairs, smallish, but not a problem at all. Nearby there are interesting shops and restaurants. I agree with the previous reviews virtually all of which were strongly positive.
Nice large upstairs bedroom with TV, fridge and food for breakfast. Close to the subway into Manhattan. Beautiful neighborhood with shops and restaurants nearby. Alice and Stan were very nice and accepted our request at the last minute (the day before Thanksgiving). Very cool. I wish we had been able to see more of Brooklyn, but we only stayed one night
A great place for us. Alice and her family were always gracious thoughtful and accommodating. Great space for just hanging out or as a base for sightseeing. Only 3 short blocks to the metro! Calm peaceful neighborhood with amazing restaurants close by. We hope to come back.

Alice and Stan made me feel At home from day 1. All my requests are met and they are more than friendly and hostile. It was very nice of them going out of the way, whenever i needed help. although it was the very first time to stay with a family, they made it a very special one. The neigbourhood was safe and had a very nice Café close by.
I was unlucky to get the nearest Subway station not working (because of construction), which made me walk 15-18 min daily, but it was not in their hands and it was also a good exercise. The room is spacious, i could use the kitchen, towels and laundry (which was very very efficient to my needs). The internet was super and never broke down, and i had a huge closet and my own desk.
Definitely i will come back one day. Thanks for the pleasant stay. Great Value for money.
We really enjoyed our stay with Alice and her family! Alice was very accommodating, extremely welcoming, and friendly. The room was bright and spacious, and was very comfortable to come back to after a long day walking around the great neighborhood! The location was perfect, with the 24/7 Q Train only a few blocks away. We definitely recommend staying with Alice, and we would come back in a heartbeat!
Alice and Stan were both generous and accommodating. They treated us like old friends by going above and beyond to make us feel comfortable in the house. They also helped navigate the subway system and gave great eating and shopping suggestions.
The room was beautiful and clean, beyond what the pictures can show. The whole house in fact has a great feeling to it that made our stay very pleasant. I highly recommend Alice's house!
