The Space

On the top floor of one of Brooklyn's most historic townhouses, I have a sunny, airy bedroom/bathroom and living-room suite available.

Queen bed, private bathroom, living room with sofa and wifi access. Decorated in cream and sky-blue with wood floors. Private door gives access to all three rooms - this is a hotel suite in a private house.

Perfect for a couple, or a couple with a small child. Friends can share the space easily too. Small dogs welcome.

Close to 5 major subway lines, and only 15 minutes from Manhattan mid-town. We are one block from the Farmer's market and beautiful Fort Greene park. The area is full of funky restaurants, coffee shops and good people.

We are a friendly and welcoming English family, with a dog, cat and two older children. The house is huge and we are great hosts.

For drivers, we usually park on the street outside.

Guest Access

Bedroom, bathroom, private living room attached, hallway access. There is no kitchen access, but there is a small fridge and coffeemaker in the room.

There is plenty of storage space for clothes and items. We find that most of our guests don't really unpack fully, but there are drawers for your use in the chest of drawers and hangars and hooks for clothes. Please note that some of our family items are also stored in the chest of drawers in the room - if you would like extra space it is no trouble to remove them :) Please let us know if you need an iron.

Hairdryer and hair irons provided. We also have a selection of plugs if you forget something vital.

There is excellent free wif-fi in the room.

Hot water all day and all night, as much as you need. The shower has a lovely over-size head and great pressure. The bathroom is charming but not renovated as that is a complicated process on the top floor of such an old building. It is scrupulously clean, and the room is thoroughly cleaned by a service between each visitor.

The room is quiet, as it faces the back of the block into the gardens. It is bright and sunny and faces East.

Interaction with Guests

I am here most days for advice or questions - my family lives in the rest of the house.

I try to always be here when people check in. If not, Airbnb has given us a lockbox so you can access keys. It is very rare to have to use it. I am generally not here when guests leave due to work schedule.

Corresponding via text or the Airbnb app is convenient and I always have my phone with me.

The Neighborhood

I have lived here for a long time now, and I love this area. If you are here on the weekend, the two markets you should visit are The Brooklyn Flea and the Farmer's Market. It is a great area to eat and drink in - there are lots of fun bars and a variety of restaurants within 2 blocks. Many of our guests spend the day sight-seeing, come home to rest and then have dinner in Brooklyn.

Getting Around

5 major subway lines within 7 minute walk. Parking on street.

House Rules
Check-in is after 5PM

I would like you to be courteous if you come in after midnight, but expect my guests to be out having a good time in New York! You won't bother us and should not feel awkward about coming in late. We leave you alone as much as you would like to be - we have busy lives and are in and out of the house on our own schedules, so there is no pressure on you. We really don't hear you come in and out.

Checkout is at 12pm, which is when the cleaning service is scheduled. I can hold bags during the day if we discuss ahead of time, and if there is no booking later that day we can adjust the checkout time occasionally. We like to be as flexible as possible for our guests.

No smoking at any time. No candles or incense.

Pets allowed on a case by case basis.
