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.
Smoking is permitted at the front of the house but only outside and far away from the doors and windows. Smoking is not permitted in the backyard or in the room.
Washer and dryer is available but each load is $5. Laundry soap is available for free. Conserve water and electricity whenever possible.
No overnight guests who are not on the reservation. We will require the names of each reserved guest and may request to see ID of at least one reserved guest upon check in. Reservation requirements include a profile photo. This listing is part of family home so I would not expect a bachelor pad environment.
A local car service which can be at our door to pick you up in usually 5 mins from calling the number is called Bushwick Car Service. (website hidden) If you do not have a US phone to call the car service, please let me know when you will be needing a car and I would be happy to place the call for you.
You can use the main family entrance or your own private entrance to come and go as you please without disturbing a soul.
This was my first airbnb and I must say it was awesome! The place was as described and very clean. To be honest we had very little interaction with our hosts as Ingrid was out of town and we were out in the morning, back at night, but the few exchanges we did have with her lovely family were VERY pleasant. We didn't spend a whole lot of time in the immediate neighbourhood but found it very easy to get to where we needed to go as there are 3 subways in the vicinity. The L was literally 3 minutes from the door. Honestly it was a really good experience, I have no complaints at all! Our hosts were also very flexible - we were delayed on both the way to NY and from NY and they were very accommodating.
Ingrid was such a great host and the apt is lovely and cozy. It looks just like the photographs, and everything was nice and tidy and organized. She gave me and my friend a key each to get into the apt, and she told us how to get to the trains. The apt is really close to the J and L lines, only a five min walk away to each. There are plenty of places to get food that are within walking distance, and the apt is also super close to two bodegas so that helped a lot. Also during my stay, "the worst blizzard in a decade" was supposed to occur (which it didn't) but Ingrid calmed our nervousness and told us that if the storm did hit hard, she was prepared appropriately and we could go up into the main part of the house if needed. She is a very sweet woman, her home is lovely and I would most definitely stay here again.
Although, I'm now able to meet Ingrid. Everything went well and I'm certified with the apartment, the her mum and husband are very accommodating. I'll surely book it again
Ingrid, Lavondo and family were great hosts! They were waiting for us when we arrived and also helped us during all our stay.
The place is just as described in the pictures, very clean and tidy with lots of useful amenities such as the microwave, mini fridge and electric water kettle. Both the bathroom and room are very spacious, and the location of the place is really convenient, near several subway lines.
We could say we had an awesome first Airbnb experience! Thank you Ingrid and Lavondo for everything! (:
This was my first airbnb experience and I couldn't have asked for a better one. Ingrid and her family were very nice, and made me feel welcome. The room was very clean and included a private bathroom. It also came with a mini fridge, microwave, keurig coffee maker and electric water kettle. The private entrance was nice, and I could come and go as I pleased without disturbing anyone. Finally, the location was great. Right near the L line to take you into town! All in all, a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it.
We stayed at Ingrid's for 2weeks and it was great. Place is clean. Towels/Sheets/Toilet paper/Tissue all provided. You get your own personal Bathrm/Microwave/Mini fridge.
Place is near the J/Z train that takes us to the Airtrain which brings us to JFK airport. L trains takes us straight to Union Sq Manhattan. Both lines are 5 min walk away.
Host is super super friendly. Wifi works fine. What a great first airbnb experience!
All round great experience and value for money! Very friendly and helpful hosts while still giving us our space. Big room and private bathroom were both great and there was everything you need. Very short walk to subway so you can get to Brooklyn really quickly and NYC in just over 20mins. Would recommend to anyone!!!

Hosts are Ingrid (mom and office worker in Midtown), Lavondo (dad and musician), and Zinn (1.5 year old boy). Lavondo is from Akron OH and I am from the Philippines. We met while working on passenger cruise liners traveling the world. A couple of years ago, we decided to settle in Brooklyn and start a family. We love to host but will also respect your privacy.
