Apartment - Private room · St Marks Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11217, United States

The Space

"I had a wonderful time in New York City. The room at Taylor's apartment is spacious, very clean and makes you feel being at home. The area is just great, close to subway trains, you can go for runs in Prospect Park and have all kinds of restaurants and shops close by. I highly recommend this place for your stay in NY." Olaf from Germany writes.

On the 4th floor of a secure (walk-up) apartment building, your private room comes with
- a comfy, twin bed
- desk and chair
- armoire for clothing.

The flat is in the back of the building so it is quiet. A bathroom kitchen and living room is shared with the hosts, my sister and me.

Other amenities include wireless internet, coin operated washer and dryer in the basement and the building is heated. Note: we do not have a landline phone, television set or microwave.

Located in what the New York Magazine calls the "BEST PLACE TO LIVE" in NYC, North Park Slope, just a few blocks from the B/Q and 2/3 trains.
- gorgeous tree and brownstone-lined streets
- 20 minutes (just 3 stops) to Union Square in Manhattan
- Awesome restaurants (James, Flatbush Farms, Franny's, Vanderbilt...) and shops in walking distance
- 10 minute walk from beautiful Prospect Park, Brooklyn Zoo, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and more!

There is a $10 cleaning fee for reservations lasting less than 5 days. This will be collected upon check-in.

This is an identical listing under my sister's account: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/252865. All reservations will go through her because I will be moving out of town in the spring.

Thank you for looking!

  • I had a great stay at Taylor's ! definitely recommend it :)

    July 2012
  • Taylor is a delightful host; my experience staying in her apartment was so great that I came back again to stay for a second 3 month stint! The neighbourhood really is great and I don't think I could ask for a better place to stay with so many amenities nearby. I will always remember Taylor's sage advice for NYC travel and insider info as well as her kindness and warmth and good company! Highly recommended!

  • The apartment is peaceful, clean and very close from the subway. Taylor and Grace are such a nice people. Highly recommended

  • I can only confirm other reviews. My experience was great. Taylor was a kind host and provided helpful recommendations about the area. The room was very comfortable and clean with a complete privacy. I can also recommend the neighborhood -- the streets are very broad with lots of restaurants and shops around, short walk from beautiful Prospect Park. It is also a great location if you work/often visit Manhattan -- there are plenty of subway lines and the commute is very quick. I would definitely stay there again!

  • Taylor and her sister, Grace, were extremely welcoming, especially as I had just arrived in Brooklyn for the first time and stayed with them while I searched for an apartment in the area. First, Taylor was helpful even before I was able to book my stay with her. When she knew I was coming to look at apartments, she tipped me off to people looking for roommates.
    During my stay, Taylor and Grace were very friendly, accommodating and fun to talk with. Even though they are very busy women with work, they make time to make you feel at home and offer great restaurant recommendations.
    The room itself looks exactly as it is pictured in the ad, which, truth be told is a bit comforting, especially when you are coming to the place for the first time. The area around the apartment is very safe, with the 2, 3 and Q trains all only two or three blocks away. They live in a vibrant neighborhood, but their street is just off a main one, so the apartment placement also has a secluded feeling and at night, you don't hear much traffic, so it is easy to fall asleep.
    Overall, I had a great stay. Taylor and her sister are great hosts. The room is awesome. I would highly recommend this room for anyone who is looking for a place to stay in Brooklyn.

  • Taylor and her sister were both very gracious and accomodating hosts. The bedroom was plenty roomy for me and it and the kitchen area were clean and neat. The bed was comfortable and the apartment is on the top floor and looks out over sort of an inner courtyard, rather than the street, so it was quiet and I slept great even though I’m a light sleeper. The apartment building is on a quiet residential street less than a block from Flatbush Ave in Brooklyn, which has many nearby restaurants and several groceries. In particular you might check out the close-by “Bergen Bagels” or the upscale “Larder” for cheeses, baked goods and prepared foods. The neighborhood felt quite safe, although Flatbush Ave itself is a bit on the gritty side compared to the neighborhoods on either side of it. There is a stop for the 2 & 3 subway lines just a 4-5 minute walk from the building. It was taking me around 30 minutes each way between midtown Manhattan and the Bergen Street subway stop. I was only in New York for three days but would have been happy to stay with Taylor for much longer

  • I really enjoyed the stay. I did not see Taylor much as she was on a trip except my last day, but she and her sister were very helpful in arranging the key pick-up, and also were flexible with my check out time. The location was really perfect, very convenient and quick to Manhattan, also with a lot of nice shops and restaurants around to go within a few blocks. The bed was also really comfortable.

    May 2011
  • Taylor is very pleasant, laid back, and generous person.The room is nice and comfortable and the neighborhood is very beautiful and packed with great restaurants and bar. I recommended!

    May 2011
  • Taylor was an excellent host! I didn't have much time to talk to her or her sister due to my work, but she was very helpful and very kind. I'd defiitely go back to Taylor's!

    January 2011
  • I enjoyed my stay with Taylor. She was very helful and picked me up from Manhattan and showed up the subway stops close to her apartment. The room is neat and clean.
