The space
Large, Sunny, Inviting Private Bedroom in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn
Private House-Private Room, Westminster Rd., Brooklyn 11218

Details:
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.


Please note: This home has cats but feel free to close doors to keep them out. We also have a bird.

About us: Stan is a musician, music teacher, and producer. He has played with many bands on both coasts of the US, most notably the wildly popular rockabilly band, Gene Casey and the Lone Sharks. He came to the States from his native New Zealand with the acclaimed band “The Drongos.” He is now band leader of a new endeavor, “Stanley John Mitchell and His Band of Buddies.” We love good food and wine, movies, theatre and music, (obviously!). We have two spectacular daughters, many good friends and neighbors and a love of our community. Our goal is to do more traveling, with Paris and Barcelona topping our European wish list, and to be able to visit Stan's homeland Down Under much more frequently than we do. Alice is a native New Yorker who loves this town madly and is always happy to share her knowledge of it.
