Bushwick is going through major changes these days, so some parts may look rougher than others, but appearances can be deceiving. There are little gems everywhere you look. We've lived here for 5 years and love it more all the time.
We are a married couple.
Darcey works out of the house and Kevin works a day job. Room is private but we are sociable and have guests frequently.
LGBT and Queer Friendly (for reals)
We like to throw parties, but we don't "party."

CAT LOVERS! We have a cat! She is very playful and friendly and she will try to be friends with you. If you are cool with that, then this is the place for you.

Kevin and Darcy are fantastic and wonderful people. They were very inviting and made me feel welcome in their apt. I felt that they genuinely cared about my wellbeing.
The room I had to myself was big, spacious, and full of lots of sunlight that made waking up much more pleasant.
I would definitely recommend staying with them to anyone who needs accommodations.
Oh, and Igor is a cool cat. She is awesome!!!
STAY HERE!! Kevin and Darcey are super real and chill af people - the King and Queen of Bushwick! Their apartment is HUGE and the room is really well presented, clean and so comforting. I felt totally at home, sometimes it was hard to leave.
Really great location to the M train and Myrtle Av and a cool 10 mins walk to the L - you can get to the LES in like 15 mins.
Honestly, I really just wanted to stay there for ever. In the month I was there I had such an authentic Brooklyn experience, and an amazing summer I will never forget! On so many levels!!
Keeping in touch with these two is something I'm definetly gonna do.
Love Love and LOVE :)
Kevin and Darcy are two wonderful hosts. The room and space is as described and the neighbourhood is quite safe and up-and-coming. The option to choose either L or M trains is pretty handy. I'd certainly stay here again.
Kevin & Darcey's place was really spacious, warm & welcoming. Both of them are kind people and create a naturally chill atmosphere. The area they're staying is changing in a fast pace. If you want to experience New York and decide on Brooklyn you might want to pick Bushwick over Williamsburg.
If you like cats you're in for a treat.
I had a splendid time with Darcey and Kevin. They are great hosts, and very interesting people., open for discussions and exchange of ideas. The appartment makes you feel right at home, the room is as nice as described, but styled with much more lovely details than can be seen on the pictures. The location offers easy and fast access to the city. A must-book!
I think K&D was real artists. Although I couldn't speak english fluently,
Darcey tryied to understand me always. And Her cat 'Igor' was so cute.
Darcey & Kevin (and Igor the cat!) are adorable. They have been very helpful and welcoming. I enjoyed staying with them and I would recommend their place to any one who is looking for a unique arty stay.
