Quiet room one is perfect for one or two people and is the bargain one is looking for. It is a small room admittingly and is in a basement but the two beds, together or seperate, are very, very comfortable and the room is very quiet. It has a table for suitcases but there is a large closet down the hall that you use. The bathroom right next door is large and elegant. Ditmas Park is a self contained nieghborhood with its own distinct culture, many resteraunts, clubs and nightlife - even a farmers market on sunday. It is a direct subway ride to the attractions in Manhattan one comes here for.
The house is on a quiet block minutes from the subway and what you get is a beautiful room in an elegantly finished basement - the quietest room in the house - the adjoining room can accomdate another three adults -see listing. There is great bathroom down the hall that if the room next door isn't in use will be pretty much yours.
If you are traveling with more than one person you can book Quite room two for up to three more guests -
the other room has a television, computer and desk - both can be great for a family who are on a budget -
The kitchen is right upstairs and you are welcome to make breakfast and use the refrigarator.
We are minutes from the subway and many, many resteraunts and night life. This is area has become one of the places to go in Brooklyn according to Timeout magazine -
Many resteraunts line Cortelyou rd which bustles at night.

The room was wonderful and very comfortable. The house was beautiful and Rick was best host. I left and came back and was again and would always book rick. He went out of his to help me.
RIck was an incredibly accomodating host and worked hard to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. He was very flexible and helpful and his neighborhood is wonderful.
My family and I had a great time in Rick's home. It was clean and very convenient for what we needed. It is true to the listing. The compuiter and cable TV are nice to have, so I would recommend booking both downstairs rooms together if you're going to be there more than a few nights.

I am a writer and actor living and creating alone both in the city and the country - best of both worlds. I have had success but my most most recent joy is writing awareness plays, producing, performing and directing them for the New York City school system - delightful. Check out www,(website hidden). As well discover my channel on youtube, key words: pridenotprejudic (no final e)
I also enjoy writing and performing for the New York theater scene.
Another joy is getting to know people - I traveled to over a 100 countries and delight in meeting and keeping in touch with as many interesting humans as possible.
My passions are classical music, theater, bicycling, swimming laps and walking in the woods and Manhattan or Brooklyn - the new Manhattan.
