About this listing
My husband and I love to travel with our two kids, so we know how great it feels to find a home away from home at a reasonable price. With that in mind, I’m delighted to share with you our warm, quiet, street-level apartment in residential Old Mill Basin in Brooklyn, New York, just 20 minutes from JFK International Airport and 35 minutes from LaGuardia Airport. It comfortably accommodates the single person, couple or family of up to five looking for a brief or extended stay.
The space is private, so you won't have to share anything; you will have the entire apartment to yourself. It consists of a living room, bedroom, dining room, kitchen and bathroom. It is breezy in the summer and warm in the winter and is close (in many cases walking distance) to the best of shopping and entertainment for both kids and adults.
The property is ADT security services and video surveillance equipped.

Other things to note
Late Check Out:
The apartment is usually in high demand, so we tend to have new guests arriving the same day that previous guests are leaving. This means late check out is often not possible. Check with us no later than the day before you plan to leave and we will let you know. The late check out rate is $10/hour.
Early Check In:
Again, due to high demand, it is not always possible to accommodate early check in. Check with me no later than the day before you plan to check in and I will let you know. The early check in rate is $10/hour.
No parties, pets, loud music, loud noises or smoking please(If the apartment smells like smoke after you leave, we will request from Airbnb to use your deposit for additional cleaning cost). We take pride in our apartment, so please be considerate as you use it. Please place trash in provided garbage bins and maintain general cleanliness of the surroundings. Be considerate to neighbors -- we've known them for years and they are all great people. Just reach out to me if you ever have a question about whether something is permitted. We thank you in advance.
I am a fun loving and family oriented person who enjoys reading, cooking and traveling locally and internationally. Favorite destinations so far include the Bahamas, St. Thomas, Saint Martin, Trinidad and Tobago and England. Favorite activities include nature walks, watching comedies and reading just about anything late evening over a glass of wine. I love meeting new people and am easy to get along with. I look forward to hosting you and yours and appreciate your interest in our apartment.
