The space

Our renovated ground floor apartment has a sunny bedroom with a queen bed and green backyard views. There is a full bathroom with bathtub, a living room and a second room where a double sofa bed, full size, can be placed (see last picture).
Please note that there is no kitchen ( who comes to NYC to cook, anyway?) but you have everything to prepare breakfast or a light dinner: a mini fridge, a microwave, coffee maker, kettle, toaster..
Plus flatscreen TV connected to Netflix, Roku and some cable channels.

The heating+ A/C system is very good, you can set the temperature and it kicks right in.
Additionally, you can make use of our mini gym (a stationary bike!)

Guest access

You share the yard with us but we generally don't use it when we have guests.

Other things to note

Please note that this is a townhouse, with wooden floors, so you will hear steps (we wake up early, but we go out of our way to avoid noise).Other than birds chirping and the occasional Brooklyn block party in the summer, you will not hear any other noises, this is a haven compared to Manhattan!

My stay was great! Check-in was a breeze, the apartment is super nice and an incredible value. It truly is an oasis in the city -- the backyard especially, where I enjoyed morning coffee and some sun while doing morning emails. It's easy walking distance to the A, C, M, J, and Z trains, so you can get pretty much wherever you need to go in the boroughs with ease. PS. Go to Grand Chammps around the corner for Haitian food.

This is a great spot to stay in Brooklyn. There are several lines close by (Walking distance) making it easy to hop on the subways. Irene was great about responding to messages. She made a book that lays out everything locally. Restaurants, shopping and everything else in between. She also had a few goodies in the fridge to snack on. It's a nice and relaxing place. I would stay there again.

Very cozy and spacious European style space. Had a nice back yard to relax in. Snacks and little extras made me feel at home. Close to a handful of different trains which made it really easy to get around Brooklyn or head to Manhattan. Would absolutely recommend!

Best place I have ever stayed! Irene really makes you feel welcome! Great location and great place. We stayed for 5 days and had a great time. Very easy checkin and great communication. The place is also very good and very well stocked with coffee, tea, sugar, fridge with food. Great beds and bathroom. Don't worry about the "no" kitchen because it has everything you need: microwave, fridge, toaster and coffee machine. It was a very quiet stay, good area as well with easy transportation and good restaurants close by. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend it.

Irene was very accommodating and was always quick to reply to our questions/comments. Affordable place to stay outside of the city.

Visiting Irene's basement flat was a real special treat. Clean, quiet and very comfortable. Lovely access to a back garden and all amenities. Wifi was fast; neighbourhood was quiet; great restaurants around the corner and shower nice and hot. We loved the communication with Irene who kept us updated all the time. We will certainly come again. Thank you, thank you!!

Wonderful place to say to get a local's view of Brooklyn. Irene had all the amenities covered - treats in the fridge, a coffee machine and tons of coffee, maps, a list of restaurants and things to do ... what a great way to see Brooklyn!

European transplants in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.
We hail from Spain and Belgium.

We started out as Airbnb guests in NY in 2009, so we came full circle.
First time we visited, we stayed somewhere near Times Square... Then, by serendipity, we came to know and love Brooklyn, and since then we never quit.
