About This Listing
Victorian Flatbush boosts large houses from early last century - this 100 year home sits on a quiet block. In the basement is a nice room with a bathroom down the hall. It is cool in the summer and warm in the winter - there are heaters and fans if required but usually not. It has a double pull out futon bed and a single futton bed. There is a room next door that can sleep two and is rented seperately. Both rooms can fit up to five - albeit tightly. There is a private back entrance leading to a garden where you can smoke or read or just enjoy the air.
I live alone here in one of the upstairs bedrooms. You can use the kitchen to make breakfast.
The room is quiet and with the destk couch and television is also a comfortable place to hang.. If you are planing to spend time in your room studying this is perfect. It is a comfortable, quiet place to sleep for 3 people comfortably - pushing it at four.

While my stay was at first a little challenging, when I told Rick my concerns he immediately dealt with them. I have to give him a five star for his commitment to making his place a functional Airbnb location. And he is extremely well located in Brooklyn, everything is easily accessible.

About the Host, Rick
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.
