About this listing

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.

Great place in a classic Brooklyn home. On,y two blocks from the strip on Cortelyou with bars, restaurants, music plus easy access to the City. Alice is a great hostess, very responsive and knowledgeable. I will definitely stay here again.

My friend and I really enjoyed our time here. Even though it was for one night, Alice and Stan made a positive lasting impression.

This is a wonderful lodging with special people who know and love people. Their place was spotless, charming, with multiple amenities - in fact one of the very best airbnb experiences I have had. A sweet piece of a pretty spot in Brooklyn. Go and return often.

We enjoyed everything about our stay at Alice's and Stan's home, from the warm hospitality to the in-room accommodations, such as food and coffee! It was a beautiful neighborhood and lovely home, with parking right out front. The hosts make every effort to ensure a relaxed and comfortable stay. Thank you Alice and Stan!

Alice is very friendly and welcoming. She provides food in the room for breakfast, which was nice.

Either Alice or Stan alone would make a great Airbnb host, but as a team they put themselves above any other Airbnb I have stayed at. They were very helpful in consulting about little details that allowed me the best use of my time. This in addition to the fact that the room is spacious, comfortable, well organized, and a wonderful quiet retreat in the evening. And, of course, the delightful Ditmas Park neighborhood is, in my experience, unique to the New York area. This is the only place in Brooklyn I will stay if I am anywhere near it. And the very quick subway options make this quite likely,

Alice User ProfileAlice is a superhost.

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 would like to offer any musicians coming to stay with us in Brooklyn the opportunity to record in his studio! Stanley would be happy to produce and provide rythmn section work on your original material. Rates will be discussed when interest is expressed.

Alice is a working actor, having appeared in many films, tv shows and commercials. If you are coming to New York to audition for universities or conservatories, she would be delighted to answer any questions you might have about the industry.

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.
