Living room, dining, and kitchen are shared and open for your use. *Brand new showerhead in your bathroom with 5 water flow settings.
Spacious Apartment with great layout:
I live here along with two other longterm airbnb guests on the opposite wings of the apt. Because we have busy schedules outside the apt., it feels like a quiet retreat from the bustling city. I live here if you have any questions or would like some info about my favorite places to walk in the neighborhood.
The Suite is in the front hall which makes it very private and away from the rest of the house. Super clean, shoes-off-inside-style of apartment. Organic linens washed in Free & Clear detergent. Steam/Radiator heat keeps you toasty in winter. (Air conditioner only in summer months.) Your big window faces a private area with no street access and lots of morning sunlight! :)

*'Hood & Trains:
8 minute walk to B and Q trains-- 30 min. average to Manhattan. 15 min. walk or 5 min. Train to Prospect Park, Botanic Gardens, and ice skating rink. Just 20 minutes to Coney Island. Gorgeous neighborhood of Ditmas Park -- cofeeshops, gourmet restaurants, bars, Food Co-Op, fresh farmer's market on Sundays. All within a few minutes walk.
Easy commute to all iconic areas in both Brooklyn & Manhattan . This neighborhood is awesome (just featured in the NY TIMES) with lots of restaurants, shopping, and gourmet spots just around the corner. Newly restored Historic King's Theatre a few blocks away.

Use the Common Areas!:
Living room is an open space for yoga, painting, meditation, and/or reading. I use this space to provide private dance therapy or yoga sessions 2-3 hours a week at which time curtains are closed to the space. Please refrain from using common space during those hours posted at living room chalkboard for reference. Ask me about having a private or couples Movement Therapy session. I have made my home a healing space and treat it as a reprieve from the city hustle. ☆
Record player for you to listen to my vintage album collection & lots of games and books!
You have full use of the kitchen and all appliances. Stay in kitchen while using stove at all times please.

Coffee. Lots of it. Right in your room with personal coffeemaker and personal Brita water pitcher.
