The Space

Are you looking for a comfortable, convenient yet affordable way to enjoy NYC? Then you won't want to pass this up. The apartment is located just a short 5 minute walk from beautiful Prospect Park AND the subway trains. It's only a quick 20 minute train ride into lower Manhattan. Nearby you can find ethnic foods including Indian, Jamaican, and Japanese, as well as the historic Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and Brooklyn Museum.

This spacious one-bedroom apartment has a foyer, spacious living room, eat-in kitchen, bathroom, and huge bedroom. It's on the 5th floor of an elevator building with handicapped access.

There is a foyer when you first enter and shiny new hardwood floors all around. From the foyer you can peek into the sunny living room, large kitchen, hallway to the bathroom, and bedroom. The kitchen is equipped with a full size refrigerator, a gas stove, microwave, blender, rice cooker, electric tea kettle, and toaster oven. There's plenty of counter-top space to bake or cook. Take a luxurious hot bath in the light-green theme bathroom. Did I mention, even in the winter, it's always cozy and warm in the apartment?

The spacious bedroom is peaceful with light during the day and thick curtains for when you want to sleep in. There is a wonderfully delightful memory foam queen sized mattress with a pillow-top. And a chaise lounge.

Wi-Fi connection is available throughout the apartment. Clean bed linens and towels are provided for your comfort.

Guest Access

Feel free to cook in the rare, generous-sized kitchen. Oh and take baths in the green-themed tub. And of course there is wifi throughout the apartment.

Interaction with Guests

I love to travel and meeting people from all over the world is a vicarious way to do it! I'm very happy to be social and friendly, answer any questions about this city that never sleeps!

The Neighborhood

Easy access to the train and lovely Prospect Park and pond. Now with a brand new skating rink! For those non-skaters like me, the park has lovely new paths around the gorgeous pond. Parkside train station is just a hop, step away (on the Q line) and Prospect Park station is just several minutes walk away (on the B and Q).

The Brooklyn Museum is just a couple stations away. It is the 2nd largest library in the city, and also houses the famous Elizabeth E. Sackler feminist museum. Just one station away is the Brooklyn Botanical Garden and Brooklyn Zoo.

For those staying longer, the dry cleaners/drop-off laundromat is just around the corner. So is one of my favorite breakfast spots just one minute away.

Getting Around

The subway (Q at Parkside station) is just a short 4 min walk away. Great when it's cold out! There's also an easy bus, B41 around Brooklyn. The dollar ($2) van is also convenient. Also car services that I can suggest as well.

Other Things to Note

Please note if you are staying longer than one week, and would like to have your bed sheets and towels changed, there will be an additional 'weekly cleaning fee' of $40. Thanks.

House Rules

My only real "house rules" is NO smoking, illegal drug use, or pets. NO PARTIES for obvious reasons. Oh, and no shoes in the house to help keep NYC dirt outdoors. And finally no overnight guests unless confirmed prior to booking.

[PLEASE NOTE: Check-in is at 3pm and check-out is 11am.]

I look forward to welcoming you into my home ;-)
