When you want to briefly live like a local in Brooklyn, you stay here.

The space

Enjoy one of brownstone Brooklyn's finest neighborhoods in our spacious one-bedroom apartment. The architecture is very easy on the eyes and the food will have you ready to transfer everything you belong to Brooklyn (it did for us!). We're a two minute walk away from the busy Dekalb Avenue full of NYC restaurant gems. The BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) and Fort Greene Park are each around ten minute walk. Pratt University is a five minute walk. Barclay's Center is about a 10 minute walk as well. There's tons to do and plenty to eat around these parts.

TRANSPORTATION/METRO: The G train is on our our block. The C is about a 5 minute walk and will take you into Manhattan (G to the L might be quicker!). The B and D are a 10-15 minute walk and are express trains to Manhattan. Walk to Barclay's Center (15 minutes) for lines RND2345B7Q. Taxis are easy to get and cost around $20 to downtown Manhattan. NEW: There are three CitiBike stations within two blocks.

WARNING: This is a four-story walk up! Two toddlers live in the apartment above us and may be noisy in the AM, we suggest sleeping with white noise. No live TV, but we have Apple TV (HBO, Netflix and Showtime)

AMENITIES: Sofa: sleeps two. King size bed! Parking = street, but easy. WIFI = included. Flatscreen with Apple TV. Air conditioning only in bedroom.

Great stylish, spacious, airy apartment. Lovely, clean, cosy and comfortable. Home from home. Close to amenities - shops, bars, restaurants. We loved being part of this neighbourhood and can highly recommend it.

I stayed at this apartment over the Thanksgiving holidays with my three kids. The building is run down and in need of repair. The apartment is spacious and has a lot of light. It has not been renovated so don't expect hotel quality bathroom, kitchen (URL HIDDEN) reminded me of apartments located in older buildings in Europe. We didn't spend too much time in the apartment as we were exploring Brooklyn and Manhattan. I think there is one water heater for the entire building and it runs out quickly. Luckily my sister lives in Brooklyn and we were able to shower at her place. The biggest complaint I have is that there is no heat in the apartment. The apartment is advertised as having ac and heat. I can't say for certain if there is ac, but there is definitely no heat. I didn't see ducts for ac so I doubt there is central ac. I asked the owner about the heat and he replied, via text, "Sorry, as there is one for entire building that we do not have access to. It usually comes on at night." If there is no heat or if the heat is not reliable ("usually comes on at night"), be up front about it. That way folks can make an informed choice as to whether they want to stay here or not. Nevertheless, my kids and I had a great trip and just bundled up when we were in the apartment.

Response from Mike:
Thanks for the feedback, Carlos. We've never had an issue with the heat, it was working fine upon our return and our neighbors said the heat was fine over the holiday. We're really not sure why or how it was not working for you. Apologies for the inconvenience. - Mike

Mike's home was unbelievably delightful! Spotless, light filled and beautifully designed---and the bed was out of this world comfortable to boot! All this and a great, walkable neighborhood? Great heavens! Mike also checked in with us Friday night to make certain we got in ok---what a gentleman!

Mike's home was an excellent weekend base for discovering Brooklyn. The apartment has been done up since the photos here and is really extremely elegant with two massive sofas and the huge living room is even bigger than it looks on these photos. It really is home from home, very relaxed, and in an excellent local, safe and chilled neighbourhood. I managed to walk all weekend visiting Olea for excellent Mediterranean food (US style), Lola's for brunch, the French Kitchen for coffee and the Brooklyn Academy of Music which is an enviable arts centre, with something for everyone or just to see the building. I would recommend Mike's apartment and would definitely book it again.

Mike was was an awesome host. He was very accommodating which made me feel welcomed. The apartment was clean and large enough for 3 adults and 2 year old. It is also located in a great location with a train stop (G) on the corner. Walking distances to restaurants, bars, coffee shop. I would def recommend this unit in Fort Greene.

The apartment of Mike and Melissa is a wonderful place to stay. It's nice, clean and very comfortable, a great place to relax after a long touristy day. The neighbourbood is quiet, safe and has a nice atmosphere (the nearby Brooklyn flea market is a must!). Also, Manhattan is easily accessible via metro. Given this was our first airbnb experience, Mike is a great host. He is extremely helpful and punctual in his communications. We had a great first airbnb experience thanks to Mike and we strongly recommend his apartment for a wonderful stay in New York.

MIke was a great host and his apt was perfect for our needs. His video tour of his home was informative and answered a lot of questions. We were a family of 4 and we found the place to be totally accommodating and comfortable. The king sized bed helped! The area of Brooklyn is also a perk -- right on the G train and also close to Prospect Park, where I took a run both days we were there. So, yes, Mike's place was super and we recommend it strongly.
