Your own sun-filled bedroom facing a large private garden/yard on a quiet street in South Park Slope Brooklyn just a few blocks away from Ditmas Park. The subway (F,G) is only four short blocks away.
Includes RoadRunner Turbo high-speed wi-fi internet, DirectTV satellite, a Sony tv, dvd player and alarm clock. Also desk with lamp, heat and air conditioner.
This is a large 2 bedroom with sound-proofed walls and lots of privacy. I live on the opposite side of the apartment. We would share the kitchen and bathroom.
In spring/summer you're free to relax and have a cocktail in the private yard/garden filled with flowers and vegetables. Chaise lounges available for your use.
You're ideally located to explore the hip new restarants and bars of Ditmas Park (Sycamore, Farm on Adderly, Purple Yam) and Park Slope. My new fave is Double Windsor! Prospect Park is 2 blocks away with tennis courts one block away. The local gym is six blocks away. In summer you can enjoy the outdoor concerts (some free!) in Prospect Park - recent artists included MGMT, the National and Passion Pit. This summer Foster the People and Hot Chip are in the lineup! Williamsburg and Park Slope are a short subway ride.
Non-smokers preferred but smoking is permitted in the yard only. I recently rescued a small dog in case you are allergic.
Includes bedding, towels, pillows, mini-fridge, desk with lamp.
Monthly guests are most welcome.
Garden is closed for winter.
No guests without prior approval.
Please separate any trash for recycling.
I enjoyed staying at Steve's place. The neighborhood is safe and quiet and the subway is only a short walk (10 minutes). It will take you to Manhattan in less than 30 minutes. Prospect Park is nearby.
Steve is a friendly guy and very easy to talk to. He invited me to a BBQ in the back garden, which was really nice. The room is large and has a television with DVD-player, as well as a small fridge where you can store your own food and drinks.
I liked the laid-back atmosphere in the house and felt completely at ease from the moment I arrived. And I became good friends with Sparky the dog, too. I can definitely recommend this AirBnB!
Had a wonderful time at Steves' place! Steve is a great host with a fine house in a nice quiet area. Best part of the place is the garden with sun all day. It is a great place to relax and a big contrast to the tempo of NY and we spent every morning there eating breakfast and enjoying the sun. We highly recommend it.
I stayed at Steve's place for a month and really enjoyed it. The room was nice, clean and bright and looks out onto the garden.
Steve is a really friendly, helpful host and made me feel welcome. And he has a super cute little dog!
The area is quiet, which I liked. Prospect Park is less than 5 minutes walk away and there are some decent deli's and cafes close by too. Subway connections are good with the F train (to Manhattan) and G train (to Williamsburg) about 5-10 mins walking distance.
I was pretty satisfied with the apartment as I stayed with friends over New Years. I had no issues checking in or out and the room was as described.
What brought my experience down was the presence of several gnats, especially in the kitchen and bathroom. I get the occasional one at home myself, but this was not very relaxing or comfortable for me.
Booked Steve's room for my mother so she would have her own space over Thanksgiving weekend. It worked out great! She was happy and comfortable.
Steve was an awesome host. We arrived very late and he warmly welcomed us into his home with leftover dinner and drinks! The room was very comfortable and private. Steve was very helpful during our stay - even gave us directions via phone when we were trying to find our way back to his place one night. Great stay - would definitely stay with him again next time we're in NYC!
