The Space

1 bedroom in a 3 bedroom apartment in the heart of Carroll Gardens, full of light, gorgeous hardwood floors, huge living room and a lovely little kitchen. You'll be sharing the apartment with me (an actress and entrepreneur) and another guest.

Your room is sweet and simple, with one small closet. The room itself is 10x7 ft. The Apartment itself is approximately 750 square feet.

I am looking for an awesome and respectful person or couple who will treat our apartment tender loving care.

Guest Access

We have a large bathroom, a huge living room flooded with sunlight and great kitchen with everything you need to cook your own meals.

Interaction with Guests

I love to meet new people and give tips on the neighborhood. Everyone in the 4 story building is awesome. The first floor neighbors hold meditation on Sundays and throw great parties in their enormous loft to which all are welcome. (don't worry, noise is never a problem) The living room is huge with hardwood floors and lots of sunlight. You don't need to bring a thing and will have access to our large living room, all our kitchenware and books.

The Neighborhood

Steps away from the best pizza in the country at Lucali's, mouth-watering cinnamon rolls, and dozens of other trendy restaurants and coffee shops.

Getting around

7 minutes from the F and G train Carroll street stop and a 15 minute ride to the lower East Side in Manhattan, 2 stops to J Street metro tech with ACE,FBD,456 trains (that's practically the whole alphabet!

Other Things to Note

Even there are some pictures of cats, there are no acctual animals in the apartment. Downsides: The front door can be a little tricky to open on your first try, but I'll train you well. No one's had a problem yet. There is no intercom, so you have to go downstairs to let friends in. The bedroom is furnished with one very comfortable memory foam mattress, but no bed. The room is next to the BQE, so there's a gentle rumble, but it's not loud.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I lived with Manisha for over half a year and couldn’t be happier with my choice. She is such a wonderful host and just a genuinely kind, generous and trustworthy person. The appartment is clean and has a great charm - you can even see the empire state building from the shower! The room itself has a comfy mattress and even a desk, so it’s suited for shorter and longer stays.

    As for Carroll Gardens, this is definitely one of the best neighborhoods in New York - it was one of the highlights of my time there and one of the things I miss most. It’s close to city and has everything you need incl. restaurants, grocery stores and bars just a few steps away, yet it’s still quiet, safe and peaceful. I loved it.

    I recommend this place wholeheartedly and will definitely come back the next time I’m in New York.

  • Second time staying at Manisha's place. The experience was so good that I decided to extend my stay. I highly reccomend her apartment to anone!

  • Manisha was more than gracious and a very warm and friendly host. Her place is located right near the heart of south Brooklyn and is a great location.

  • Manisha welcomed me in the warmest way (smile and sweets from a nearby bakery) and the place was really great, filled with light and of course heat, since I came during the hottest days of the summer. But she got an AC just for me, which was perfect to make me enjoy my stay even more! The roommates were also very nice to me and we spent some fun and enjoyable times together.
    I loved the neighborhood, with plenty of great shops to discover, near the park and the subway... I felt so lucky to spend some time there.
    i highly recommend this place...and the people who live there, of course!!

Act French New York
I'm an actress and entrepreneur with a love of everything French. I lived in Paris for 3 years before moving to New York six years ago. I love Russian literature and get rich quick books. On a typical day you can catch me running in Prospect Park, throwing a French soirée in midtown or enjoying Maple Lattés at Gorilla coffee. A friend once encouraged her students to practice "radical hospitality." I think that meeting people from other cultures is one of the most wonderful ways to expand your mind and learn about yourself. I treasure my international friendships and am looking forward to meeting more fellow globetrotters through Air B&B!
