People usually feel very cozy in my home. A mix of artsy and earthy.

The neighborhood, Gowanus, is right in the middle of 4 very popular and well known neighborhoods; Parkslope, Carroll Gardens, Fort Greene and Sunset Park. Filled to the brim with restaurants, cafes and boutiques. Prospect park, the Brooklyn Museum, the Botanic Garden are a 15 minute walking distance from the apartment. Hipsters mixed with new and old families. Watch out for the baby carriages! Especially on Sundays.

The apartment is a block away from the R subway train, approx 10 minutes from downtown Manhattan. One stop on the R train will take you to Atlantic Ave/Barclay Center, a major subway hub. Street parking outside the building and garage parking closer to 7ave. There are also buses. I will make maps available for both subways and buses.

Guest Access

Guests have full use of the living room and kitchen.

Interaction with Guests

If you're renting the entire apartment for your stay, I of course, won't be there. But I'm always accessible via phone, text or email.

The Neighborhood

I love that my neighborhood is in the middle of Everything! There's even a brand new Wholefoods 5 blocks away.

Other Things to Note

As you see the pictures, my home has lots of plants. Depending on how long you're staying you may be asked to water them. Just a heads up.

  • We had a great time at Keely's apartment. With three friends who had never been to Brooklyn, this was a perfect chance to get to know this beautiful part of NYC. The clean and neat apt was big enough, though we were around town most of the time. The subway was closeby and the connection to Manhattan quick. Keely is a really friendly host, it was easy to get in contact with her and we got fast responses to all our questions. We we're glad to stay here and would come back anytime.

  • Keely welcomed us in person, and she was a bright, and cheerful person who made us feel immediately at home. Her apartment, with interesting city views, is exactly as it appears in the photos--a mixture of artsy, Zen, and very sunny during the day. The bed was extremely comfortable! With plants in every room, there is a sense of balance. One should expect a bit of noise from traffic on the street below, as in many city apartments: I wasn't too bothered by that as I come from a city, too. Very well situated, one block from the subway with very friendly luncheonettes on the east and west ends of the block, it is very easy to walk to Carroll Gardens or Prospect Park--or to explore the area's antique stores and new art galleries. I especially appreciated how kind Keely was to let us check out late, which gave us a little more time to spend with the family nearby! I highly recommend this apartment, and Keely, a wonderful host!

  • Keely is a fantastic host, kind, helpful and discreet. She welcomes you on your arrival day and is always available during your stay.
    The house is cozy, bright and clean, and really has a "good mood".
    The location for us was excellent, very close to the subway station, and placed between (ten minutes walks) two very beautiful districts, Park Slope and Carroll Gardens. We loved Brooklyn!

  • I sublet Keeley's apartment for eleven nights for my parents, who were visiting from Australia. Keeley was great to deal with beforehand and she handed over the key early so I could meet them off the Amtrak and bring them straight there. They loved her clean, functional apartment and the fact that they could cook there - it was close to the subway and supermarkets. Thanks for everything, Keeley!

  • A very homely and bright apartment with lots of plants and a great view. Good location, spacious, nice neighborhood and close to subway. A little cold in the winter. Some noise from the street. Friendly and helpful host. Would love to stay here again.

    Response from Keely:

    I'm glad you guys enjoyed your stay. My apologies regarding the heat. The thermostat is in the living room, you could have turned it up at anytime. But you didn't know (email hidden)rry. Come back and be toasty next time!

  • Keely's place is beautiful, spacious and comfortable, and located in a great neighborhood. She's a gracious host, and I really enjoyed my month there. Thanks Keely!

  • Keely's place is just you can see in the pictures: a really cozy place full of nice plants and great light.
    You can feel a zen atmosphere which is great for a quite stay of a few days.
    Keely's place is one block from the metro, and that makes a diference and it's a benefit because it's really easy to move around NY.
    Also is pretty close to the 4th and 5th avenue of brooklyn, where there are lots of stores and trendy bars and restaurants.
    Keely is a great hostess, I could met her on the arrival which was great, also her tips before and during the stay were of help all the time.
    Was a pleasure to spend holidays in NY and highly recommend Keely's place for it if you want a nice and peace stay.

  • Very well furnished apartment for such a short stay. No AC in the living room can be tough during the summer. The outside of the building is not great but I think that is typical for affordable apartments in Brooklyn. Host is very strict with house rules, and check-in time so read up.

    Response from Keely:

    I am glad you found my home well furnished for a short stay, it is my home and not a hotel room. I would recommend not agreeing to follow house rules if you find them so strict. Yes, you are correct on reading up on checking in and out but incorrect on being strict. I explained to you that a cleaning service would be in the apartment so checking in at 2 o'clock would be preferred (there were guests checking out that morning). Luckily they finished early so when your sister arrived at 1o'clock, an hour early, there were no problems. You did have an option of leaving your luggage and picking it up later when checking out. And no I can't say that your telling me you would let me know the morning of checking out the time you would be leaving worked for me. It is my home and I needed a bit more notice on returning.

  • It has been a pleasure staying at Keely's place on Union St! The apartment is roomy and bright, comfortable with good vibes :-)
    Everything is clean, the shower has good pressure (not always the case in NYC...), the futon bed is comfortable. I found everything exactly as described.
    Although I didn't meet Keely in person, all the negotiations with her were easy and smooth as she is very responsive and accommodating.
    I enjoyed every minute of my stay and look forward to coming again if possible.

...a Massage Therapist living in New York for the past 20 years. As of August 2013, living part-time in Detroit (my home town). I love to travel and absolutely understand the importance of having a safe, clean, affordable and comfortable roof over my head. I meditate, practice yoga (mostly at home) and love taking my bike out to Prospect Park. I enjoy going out to dinner with friends but having dinner with a close group of friends at home is priceless. Thanks for checking out my place and profile! Parlo italiano...non sono, ci provo. A presto, Keely
