The Space

A clean and comfy guest room with two double beds awaits you in a newly built apartment in Bushwick Brooklyn. Perfect for weekend getaways! Sleeps up to 4.

Free Wifi all the time. The house is near two main subway lines, L and J trains, just 20 mins to New York City. A and C trains also walking distance for easy access to Barclays Center and Downtown Brooklyn.

Washer, dryer and ironing board available. Guest room is on the lower level, is private with a door that locks with a key while you are out. It has bookshelves and a wardrobe.

Private full bath with shower to yourself. Microwave, fridge, water kettle included and perfect for late night munchies. Use of living area and cooking in the family kitchen on the main floor is welcome provided you clean up after yourself! :-) Access to beautiful backyard with gazebo for fresh air and sun shine.

C Town supermarket nearby. 24/7 Deli around the corner. A dozen different restaurants Thai, Chinese, Latin, Indian and Soul/American food all deliver to the house.

Just a few minutes away on the L train is the hipsterville we know as Williamsburg with tons of restaurants and nightlife. The immediate area of the house lacks a 'happening' scene and is more quiet.

Hosts are Ingrid (mommy) Lavondo (daddy) and Zinn (2 year old). We have done a lot of traveling ourselves in our younger years when we worked for a cruise liner and we love to meet new people. Hope to meet you!

While I love to host, your privacy will also be respected. There is a private entrance to the guest room so you can come and go as you please at any time of the day or night. Being that it is a family home, I would not expect a bachelor pad environment.

  • Los anfitriones Ingrid y Lavondo son super serviciales y atentos, también la mama de Ingrid es muy amable, en conclusión son una familia muy educada y encantadora que te harán sentir como en casa pero dándote tu propio espacio y privacidad, me sentí muy segura alojándome allí. El vecindario esta un poquito alejado de Manhattan pero el mismo cuenta con 2 estaciones de tren cercanas que te conectan con dicha área en aprox.45 min, comprando el metro card puedes ir y venir las veces que quieras. También muy cerca de la casa hay locales de comida, un pequeño supermercado etc. para comprar lo que se necesite. En fin, todo fue acorde al precio y a lo ofrecido en la descripción publicada. Gracias Ingrid y Lavonde por la compresión y apoyo durante mi estadia, you have a new friend in Venezuela!!

  • Wonderful Hosts, super kind family always ready to help you. They give you the space and privacy necessary. There are two subways stations around 3 blocks each, the price is accorded taking in consideration that is the NY city. Thank U so much for your understanding and care.

  • We had a very nice time in Brooklyn. Ingrid was a great host and gave us some tips for Brooklyn. The guestroom is conveniently close to 2 subway stations. We will come again.

  • My stay with Ingrid had been very pleasant. The room is tidy, private and very comfortable. Ingrid was also very helpful and generous. The place is close to train and subway station so it's easy to commute. Restaurants and shops nearby to get everything. Recommended!

  • This was my first Airbnb experience, and this accommodation was perfect. The room is large, clean and quiet, with a private bath and a separate entrance. The neighborhood is friendly and quiet, and I felt completely safe as a single woman traveling alone. Subway stops for the L and J trains are just a few blocks away, making for a relatively quick trip into Manhattan or to JFK airport. I would definitely stay here again!

  • Last week my friend and I visited New York, we stayed at Ingrid and Lavondo's guesthouse for 8 nights. Ingrid's mom got us settled in. Everything was so nice, the room, the bathroom, it's more like an appartment! The beds were good! We felt so welcome, nothing was to much to ask for, we got good tips and advice, and nice conversation. :-)
    3 subway-lines close to home, most of the time we took the A-train, from Broadway Junction, a 7 minute walk, but it gets you faster and further in Manhattan. We never felt unsave in the neighboorhood. A really good deal for a really really good price! All the communication by mail, prior to our visit was quick and friendly.Thanks so much Ingrid, Lavondo, and Angie, hope we will come back one day! We'd choose you anytime! And if you visit New York, plan a day in Williamsburg! If you can, visit the Fuego 718 store on 249 Grand Street.
