The Space

Beautiful private room on second floor of three story brownstone. Two huge shuttered windows look out on tree lined traditional Brooklyn brownstone neighborhood that is within the Prospect Heights Historic District. (means it was designated by law to preserve the 1900's architecture). Classic antique furnishings, very comfortable double bed with down comforter, dresser, desk, and table and air conditioned in hot weather. Room does not include kitchen or breakfast, but has all tools to make meals, breakfasts, etc., including small fridge, microwave, toaster oven, hot plates, electric hot water kettle, french press, china, pans, etc. It also will have tea bags, and ground coffee. I will clean dishes left downstairs in hall daily, ready for next use.

Use of two bathrooms with showers and tubs (shared by myself and one other occupant of my apartment); one is on the floor below the room ( main floor). Upstairs bath off hall near room (has deep claw foot tub) and is closed after I go to bed, usually around 11 or 12, until I get up, usually around 6-8. During that time guests use downstairs bath (one flight).

A great advantage of this area over other Brooklyn neighborhoods is the extreme proximity to many subway lines, including the 2/3/Q/B,4,5, only 20 minutes by subway to Manhattan! The Q and B trains go over the Manhattan Bridge affording a stunning view of the New York skyline every time you go to the city. Brooklyn offers so much, but also all of Manhattan is very convenient--as convenient as many Manhattan neighborhoods, but just greener and more quiet.

Under 10 minute walk to huge beautiful Prospect Park, walk to many wonderful small shops, the beautiful main branch of the Brooklyn Library, the beloved Brooklyn Botanical Garden as well as the Brooklyn Museum. Also 10 minute walk to Park Slope, another well known pedestrian tree lined Brooklyn neighborhood. On our corner there is a classic New York deli with a bagel bakery on site and many other cafes and restaurants, many with outdoor seating.

The room, which is accessed by staircase at front door, is very private as my living space is large (1600 square foot) duplex, and much of the time I am downstairs in back of my apartment, so guests come and go very independently.
My home is peaceful, eco-conscious (no chemicals used in cleaning, no chemically perfumed products), relaxed and warm, with a country-like feel, right in the city!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This place was amazing and beautifully kept. The room had everything we needed and felt so cozy. It was great to return home to a safe and comfortable place after wandering around the city every day. We came and left as we pleased without being a disruption. Linda was an excellent host, very personal and friendly. Great restaurants very close by. We will be staying in the house any time we return to New York!

  • Linda and Chantille's brownstone is in a fantastic location, a beautiful and relatively quiet part of Brooklyn, close to local eats, drinks, shops, and the subway. It's a quick ride into Manhattan. Linda (email hidden), very welcoming and helpful throughout, wanting to make sure we were comfortable during a hot spell (we were) and had all we needed. The bed was very comfortable and the room is private and a good size. Thank you Linda for a great stay in NYC!

  • This was a real great stay. We loved the neighborhood. You can buy phantastic traditional bagels at the next corner and there are nice other restaurants and pubs nearby. The place is well connected to the Subway system. Counted that this is NYC it's calm at night. The hosts are very friendly and supportive. Thanks for the stay.

  • I had a good time in this beautiful brownstone house and I liked my room very much. Linda is very charming and helpful. I felt that she trusted me and that is one of the things that I appreciate the most. So, I felt at home there. I am very thankful for that. I can highly recommend this private room and this wonderful host.

  • We had a really good time at Chantille&Lindas well-furnished private room. Linda was a relaxed and friendly host and we can recommend this housing to everyone. It´s very quick get to Manhattan (4 stops by Q-Train), but Park Slope/Prospect Heights is (email hidden) to be! The Neighborhood is secure and relaxing (after beeing the hole day around in great but busy Manhattan) and we can highly recommend the milk bar (prospect place/Vanderbuilt Ave) to take a delicious breakfast with the most friendly staff!

  • We truly had a wonderful stay in Brooklyn. The room was big enough and had everything we needed. Linda is a charming lady who made us feel at home instantly. The house has close proximity to a subway station with access to the important lines. Next to that the surrounding neighbourhood provides a vibrant atmosphere with great bars, restaurants, etc.

  • Very comfy home in a quiet neighbourhood, not far from the subway (15 minutes from manhattan). Linda (email hidden), she lent us maps and gave us lots of advices for the restaurants, visiting Brooklyn and the public transports. The room is spacious, well-equipped, convenient and quiet. Special mention for the bed. We had good night's sleep and we really loved the house.

  • We stayed at Linda's place for a week, and we loved it. We were out all day, but it was perfect to come home to a warm and cozy place every night. It's very private, and we had no problems. Linda is very helpful if you need it, and she totally respects your privacy.
    Easy to get to Manhattan and great bagels at the bagel shop just around the corner. The Barclays Center is in walking distance, so if you're interested in sports, you should definetely go se a Brooklyn Nets NBA game. Great experience. Can't wait to go back. Would recommend Linda's place to everybody.
