About this listing
We are a dancer/choreographer couple delighted to offer our home, a glorious parlor level (2nd floor) brownstone apartment - high ceilings, stained glass windows, lots of lovely sunlight and a few short blocks to Prospect Park. Lefferts (formerly Prospect Lefferts Gardens) is a charming Brooklyn neighborhood rich with history, greenery, and diversity. You can expect a real Brooklyn experience at our apartment.
The bedroom's queen sized bed comfortably fits one person, a couple, or two friends willing to bunk together. The bathroom has a claw-foot tub and an excellent showerhead. The dining and living rooms are spacious and warm with plenty of spaces to enjoy a meal or relax. We have a flat screen television, a Wii for watching Netlix (or playing games), and free Wifi.
The kitchen is fully-equipped with a dishwasher, gas stove and oven, typical kitchen amenities, and oodles of cook books. It's a delightful place to whip up something tasty. We also provide some breakfast goodies.
The apartment is quiet, private, and quite large by NYC standards. A sweet little neighbor cat sometimes visits, but does not live in the apartment and can be kept out if necessary.
The neighborhood is charming and safe. There's a yummy Caribbean bakery on the corner, a lovely wine shop one block away, grocery shops large and small, and a few great restaurants (take out and sit down) in the area. Prospect Park is 4 blocks away, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the Brooklyn Museum are a short bus ride away or an enjoyable stroll through the park, and a wonderful farmer's market takes place every Saturday at Grand Army Plaza. We'll leave you some fun things to check out during your stay. And read more about Lefferts Gardens on airbnb's website: https://www.airbnb.com/locations/new-york/lefferts-garden
We're off the Q express line and the B train, both of which are great trains. The Q gets you to lower Manhattan in 30 minutes or less and stops at most major stations. The B takes you along the lower east side and then up the west side.
We place a lot of emphasis on the upkeep and quality of our home. We keep a clean, organized and warm apartment and expect our guests to enjoy and respect our space.
It's ideal for a couple, but can absolutely house two friends who don't mind sharing a bed or more if sleeping on a comfortable couch suits you. We also have a super comfy air mattress. Just ask! Oh, and we'd ask that you lovingly take care of our cherished plants.
We would love to host you!
