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.
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.
I love that my neighborhood is in the middle of Everything! There's even a brand new Wholefoods 5 blocks away.
The R subway train is one block away from the apartment. The buses are pretty reliable and run very frequently. A great way to see the city without wearing out your shoes.
Other Things to Note
As you see the pictures of my home has lots of plants. Depending on how long you're staying you may be asked to water them. Just a heads up.
-Smoking outside only.
-Please eat in the kitchen. There are no pests in the apartment and I'd like to keep it that way.
-No extra people, maximum 3.
-Remove shoes when entering apartment. Not a control issue, just keeps the outside...outside.
-Expect a quick walk through before you checkout.
-Most importantly, enjoy your stay!
We stayed in Keely's wonderful apartment for 3 months and it really became home during that time. It is lovely and bright and well equipped.
It is only one block away from the R train and the area around is really great. We absoutely love the industrial charme of Gowanus (so many things to discover just aorund the corner) and the atmosphere in Park Slope and will definitely stay in this area again the next time. Beautiful Prospect Park is only a 15 minutes walk away, too.
Keely is a terrific host and did everything to make our stay most comfortable possible. She replied very quickly and is really friendly and helpful person. So we were quite sad to leave the flat (and New York) and we can definitely recommend her appartment.
Loved all the plants and windows! Close to the R train and walking distance to lots of stuff. The apartment had more than enough space for the two of us. Keely was great about getting back to us quickly when we had questions also.
We stayed for 2 weeks at Keely's apartment over the Christmas/new year holiday. It was very homely and conveniently located for trips into Manhattan. I'd advise future guests to arrange amenities like an iron and ironing board as well as the mirror pictured, as it wasn't made clear to me that these items were available by request only. I found the hot water to be temperamental which was a little frustrating but overall we were warm and cosy and there are plenty of great books to keep you occupied on a rainy day.
Keely was great to communicate with, and had a quick response to all my questions.
Un très bon séjour dans cet appartement, confortable, bien équipé et surtout bien situé (métro, supermarchés, restaurants....).
Keely nous a très bien accueilli et a répondu à nos questions tout au long de notre séjour (3 mois).
Le quartier est vraiment sympa et nous avons passé un excellent moment à Brooklyn. On reviendra !
Keely is a perfect host. She helped us a lot, and answered to all our questions. The house is perfect for 2 or 3 people, in a nice quartier, close to the subway R (less than 5 minutes) and other main subway at Atlantic Avenue (15 minutes). If i'll came back in NYC i'll stay at Keely's place again, thank you!
I stayed 20 days at Keely's with a friend and everything went perfectly for us ! She was really welcoming and we felt at home ! Everything is exactly as the pictures describe ! I can honestly recommend renting her place !
nous avons passé un très bon séjour chez Keely à Brooklyn.
notre arrivée était bien préparée par des petits mots qui nous attendaient dans son appartement. en son absence, à notre arrivée le premier soir, on a eu un souci d'ouverture de la porte de l'immeuble, mais nous avons pu la joindre très facilement par téléphone pour trouver la solution.
le quartier est agréable, proximité de la 5th avenue (de Brooklyn), de parkslope et Prospect park, et le secteur très commerçant d'Atlantic avenue est à 12 mn à pied. la station du subway Union street, ligne R est à 2 mn à pied, mais le métro peut être long à venir.
L'appartement est chaleureux et respire la convivialité de son habitante. il est plus confortable d'y dormir à deux dans la chambre que pour la 3è personne dans le salon.
l'inconvénient réside surtout dans le climat du milieu de l'été, cette chaleur humide jour et nuit à laquelle on est pas habitués. on n'avait pas fait de l'air conditionné un critère de choix, mais les ventilateurs de plafonds sont un peu limite pour aérer l'appartement. cet inconvénient ne vaut que pour juillet-août, certainement.
A part ça, la description et les photos de l'appartement sont fidèles à la réalité, et Keely est une hôte prévenante et attentionnée, avec nos remerciements

About the Host, Keely
...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 bike riding, the streets
of Detroit are perfect for it. 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!
