The space

This room is one of three separate rooms that are located inside the apartment "A warm and cozy home away from home" The apartment is rented out as an entire apartment, as well as individual rooms. Hence, guest must check with me before making reservation, so I can verify whether or not the place is available entirely or just as private rooms..

This room is located on the 1st floor of my home. It is in a beautiful duplex apartment in Brooklyn that is 15 minutes away from downtown Manhattan by trains. My neighborhood borders both a Jewish and a West Indian community ; I live on a small block that is located across the street from a playground and one block away from the Interfaith Hospital. There are post offices, pharmacies, grocery stores, hair and nail salons, supermarkets and other places that provides a variety of amenities nearby. The C train is just one block away & the A trains are two blocks away, the LIRR is also a block away and other means of public transportation is very convenient just in case one does not drive. There is a parking garage that is located three blocks away from my home, also a BP Gas station and a Seven Eleven is located around the corner just in-case one does drive. Furthermore, The Children's museum, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Bridge, Prospect Park and the Botanical Garden are all amazing sites to see while staying at my home.

The home was quiet and clean, and the room itself was exactly as advertised. There was an AC unit in my room which kept the place very cool during the hot summer days. Portia was responsive and very accommodating when I needed additional accommodation, towels, etc. I loved the neighborhood and was happy to be Airbnbing with someone who knew the area well. There's a grocery store on the corner, a gym around the corner, subway stop to Manhattan a few blocks away....basically everything you need.

Portia is a great host. Her home is kept clean, it's spacious, close to many train stops, and very close to a grocery store. Portia is very friendly and was always responsive. I definitely recommend others to stay here!

Portia is a great host, happy that I stayed at hers's. The room is spot on like in the listing, everything was great. A big food supermarket is round the block, easy access to subway which was super convenient. Highly recommend.

Cozy room, nice kitchen and living room area . The neighborhood is pretty nice as well . Never had any problems walking home late at night . Train is right outside of the bedroom window so it can be noisy at times, but you get use to it . Everything you need is within walking distance . Grocery story , the A and C train are literally a 2 minute walk away ! Portia is a pleasant host. It's best if you keep the apartment clean on your own, she comes in to clean up from time to time tho .

Very big house in an accommodating neighborhood. Lots of room for privacy. Quite close to any necessities, even better if you don't mind walking (I enjoyed walks to Prospect Park, farmers/flea markets, restaurants and museums). The house was always clean and Portia helped me out with anything I needed. I stayed here for four months and really grew to love the neighborhood and this room. Wish I could go back!

I stayed with Portia for just under a month while I was doing a course in Manhattan. I found the room to be exactly what I needed, simply furnished but very clean and the apartment is lovely. Portia was a great host, I didn't see her very much because she lives in the adjoining apartment and I was out a lot but when I did see her she was very friendly and helpful, and whenever I emailed her with a question she got back to me very quickly. The apartment is well placed for the subway and the A and C trains take you into Manhattan in around 25 minutes.

Response from Portia:
It was a pleasure to have Caitlin stay at the apartment. She was very quiet and didn't ask for much. Whenever I spoke with her she was always polite and friendly. She kept the space very neat and tidy, which I greatly appreciated. I would certainly welcome her back to my home anytime. Portia

I love living a life that is full of adventure and new experiences. Music, art, foods are all wonderful adventures that can be very exciting to indulge in. Hence, living in Brooklyn enhances the excitement while adding a diversity that never gets dull. In my free-time I love to have a nice lunch or dinner at a trendy restaurant in Manhattan. When I crave a lovely glass of wine and some escargot the place I like to go is Balthazar. I also love sushi and foods that are spicy so there are many other wonderful restaurants to go to for that too. Music, music I love all types of music, especially Latin and world music. I also enjoy going dancing with friends or visiting an art gallery. The Broadway plays are fun to see too and afterwards, going home to Brooklyn is a nice escape from the big city.

Having me as a host would be quite an experience because I understand what hospitality means; I have worked within that industry for many years and I take great pleasure in welcoming guests into my home. Besides visiting a big city and enjoying what it has to offer one also must be able to go home to somewhere that is quite relaxing and soothing to the soul.

I also work as a licensed real estate sales agent at Keller Williams; if you are interested in residing in New York for the long haul I can certainly help you with finding an apartment or home
