The space

Make the most of YOUR time in New York City. This cozy and private studio apartment allows you to come and go as you please without the hassle of coordinating with a host. Private entrance, down one flight of stairs in basement.

This artist-designed apartment features:

Typical amenities: a large flat screen TV with basic cable and blu-ray DVD. Wireless internet access/WiFi available, but you must bring your own laptop.

Kitchenette: SAVE MONEY and use our refrigerator, microwave, electric hot water kettle, dishes and utensils. Sorry, there is no stove. Folding table and chairs available to create a cozy dining area.

Three sleeping options: full-size loft bed, fold-open couch/bed, and a single memory foam bed that fits beneath the loft bed. The space is small, so we wouldn't recommend using all of the beds at once. Three adults can fit, but it will be tight. Please be aware that one of the beds is up high (a loft) and it may not be suitable for some visitors.

Family-friendly features: walking distance to three playgrounds an Prospect Park. Toys and board games are available to help little ones and adults pass the time.

We do our best to make travelers comfortable by providing:
- simple snacks and drinks upon arrival
- tea
- umbrella
- slippers
- luggage scale
- linens, toilet paper, and tissues
- small selection of books by Brooklyn authors
- unusual guidebooks (we still encourage you to bring your own)

The location is ideal for people who own cars or prefer to use the subway. 3 minute walk to F & G subway trains/tube/metro. Cute restaurants and coffee shops close by: Brooklyn Comfort, Hunger Pangs, Hamiltons, Church Ave Wine Bar, Brancaccio's, Thai Tony's, and Steeplechase cafe. Lots of international shopping, too. The apartment is located within walking distance of Cortelyou Road, a 10 minute train ride on the F train to Park Slope, or 25 minutes to Williamsburg on the G train. Midtown Manhattan is about 45 minutes away. Street parking is available. Drive to lower Manhattan in under 15 minutes.

The immediate neighborhood is one of the last truly diverse areas remaining in New York City. From our home you can hear the call to prayer from the local mosque, church bells, and the sabbath siren from the synagogue. The inexpensive and plentiful shopping on Church Avenue is reflective of the diversity in the neighborhood. Two blocks away is more gentrified. There is a yoga studio, restaurants, and a coffee shop (espressos, pour-overs, and presses available).

The neighborhood was cited as the safest in Brooklyn by AMNY in 2011:

Quiet residents preferred. Do your partying outside of the apartment!

No smoking at all on the premises. No drugs. No pets.

Families welcome!

My parents and I were visiting NYC and stayed at Jane's place. It's a very nice basement suite with a bathroom and windows. It's one big room with a bunk bed and pull out sofa and comfortable fit 3 adults. I liked that there were appliances to help us feel at home. Jane was very …

WONDERFUL!! This was the best decision we made regarding our New York trip. Jane was incredible and accommodated a very last minute request. I was traveling with my 13 year old daughter and the first place we booked was not what we thought so I needed a quick switch. This little …
