About This Listing
We live in a one bedroom apartment and when you come to stay with us, here's what you can expect from the room & the neighborhood:
You will get a spacious, clean room with 2 windows.
A comfy queen size bed with freshly changed sheets & pillowcase, and a blanket. We also offer you a towel, use of your own closet, a chair, a table and computer (if needed) plus free internet access. There is an AC in the room-trust me it will get really hot in NY during summer.
Also feel free to use the kitchen, glasses and so forth.
I am located in Lefferts Gardens, right by the Prospect Park, less then 1 minute from a subway stop PROSPECT PARK (Q & B trains), it takes exactly 17 minutes to come to Union Square, Manhattan.
The area is friendly and safe and the building is full of young people, mostly musicians and some artists.
Down the street next to the subway entrance are few restaurants, markets & shops and a coffee place. Brooklyn Botanic Garden is 5 min away, Brooklyn Farmers Market/Saturdays 15 min by foot etc.
I only have ONE house rule. That is-- Please remove your shoes before entering the apartment. Other than that, you are free to come and go as you please at any hour, have fun, make (email hidden) Also try to avoid keeping juicy food in the room.
AND Please feel free to ask me anything you need during your stay. :)
Igor and Gita were amazing hosts and everything was as described in the listing!
I can't recommend booking with these hosts enough.
I stayed four nights at Gita's and Igor's place and it was a wonderful time. We didn't see each other that often, but they did everything to make my stay great. They are both warm, lovely and sparkling personalities. Their place is very clean and looks as shown in the pics. The location is awesome as it is right next to the park and the subway station is just around the corner. I had a great time and can highly recommend staying with them.
Staying with Gita and Igor was fantastic! They really made me feel at home and they are such great people. Thank you both again for everything. The apartment is very cozy, and it is just as expected from the listing. Gita was very caring and fun to be around, and I would definitely contact them again the next time I'm in New York, whether it would be to stay with them or just meet up, and I hope they will too the next time they're in Europe.
The area is nice, you have everything you need in walking distance and the subway is just right next door.
All in all, very nice and I could not have asked for better hosts :)
Gita is GREAT! The first day I arrived, I already felt as home. She is such a friendly and funny person, there are many things that she can tell you, about the city, the people here, places to go... As I said, she makes you feel comfortable!
I also met Igor for a while when I just arrived, and he was also kind and friendly!
They are both great people to live with!
The neighborhood is also great, the express subway station to Manhattan, is just in the corner, (15 minutes to Union Square). And it takes you some steps to get into Prospect Park, where there are some live music, people riding their bikes, many families by the lake...
Brooklyn is great, and there are many things to do and see here.
Also the room is HUGE! even bigger than in the pictures.
I highly recommend to stay at Gita and Igor place!! Awesome place and awesome hosts.
Gita & Igor were lovely hosts! They were both friendly and welcoming, and made me feel at home in their apartment. Gita even talked me through all the areas of New York and what would be fun to see & do in each bit. The area was nice and safe, right across from Prospect Park with the subway station right around the corner. Gita & Igor are really interesting, outgoing people and I felt well looked after during my stay, I would definitely recommend a stay at their home. Thanks again to both!
Gita and Igor are very wonderful hosts, I really enjoyed to stay with them! They are two wonderful artists and they made amazing stuffs!!! The house was very clean, the room is big and confortable, with the beautiful Prospect Park and subway stops right over there! My first feeling was to be at home! I really suggest to stay with them!!! Thanks a lot Gita and Igor!
Gita & Igor were very friendly and accommodating from email correspondence to as soon as you step in the door. The Studio Apartment is clean and well kept in a beautiful safe feeling neighborhood.
Whatever you need be it a debrief on your day or directions to get to a dive bar in SoHo, Gita & Igor were there to help.
Many thanks to you both!
