About this listing
Rustic charm N’ Urban setting
I live on a very quiet street lined with Brownstones & Brick homes that have backyards that bring to mind country living. You can have the entire floor or private rooms that are safe, clean, comfortable & Wifi enabled. Street side parking available. Centrally connected by public transportation and only 8 minutes from Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg bridges where you can walk or bike as you gaze at Lady Liberty (Statue of Liberty) in the Harbor.
An awesome neighborhood offering entertainment from public parks to charming restaurants and street side Cafés. Stuyvesant heights is a historic neighborhood that is currently experiencing re-gentrification and cultural diversity. The Metro Tech Ctr and up and coming Nets Stadium in Downtown Bklyn has brought new interest to this area. I'm a great host and can direct you to a great New York experience and enjoy a safe and adventurous time as you stay in my ‘Secret Garden’
Kitchen is shared. Please clean after use.
Absolutely NO SMOKING INSIDE house

Claire est une personne sympathique, elle vous recoit avec bienveillance. On peut compter sur son hospitalite meme la veille de son depart - merci Claire -
Sinon, pas de surprise, la chambre correspond exactement aux photos (les lits sont disposes dans une ancienne piece de vie avec un vaisselier et une ancienne machine a coudre). Je conseille plutot cette chambre pour des jeunes et pour des courts séjours et surtout pour ceux qui veulent juste y dormir, je deconseille aux familles car il n'y a pas vraiment d'espace pour manger dans la chambre, et la cuisine est depourvue de table. La climatisation est si bruyante qu'il faut l'interrompre la nuit pour dormir.
Soggiorno molto gradevole per tutta la famiglia, Claire l'abbiamo vista solo il giorno di arrivo ma nell'appartamento c'era tutto il necessario. E' stata gentile perché ci permesso di lasciare i bagagli oltre il check out. Buon posto anche se la metropolitana non è vicinissima, ma quartiere tranquillo.
Perfect stay! Honestly everything was perfect! Very good location Airport (jfk) and Manhattan wise. Very clean and comfortable.
This place is exactly as described. It's very cozy! It is very clean and spacious enough for us four girls. Although the bedroom is not exactly modern it met our needs just fine. There was a sitting area, television, enough bed space. There is a kitchen and bathroom and your own private entrance. The garden is right outside of the kitchen. We enjoyed our breakfast and dinners in the backyard garden area. Restroom and kitchen were both clean.
Our host was very accommodating and pleasant. She kept to herself mostly but was very helpful when we asked for suggestions. It was obvious she has been hosting for a while and truly enjoys doing it.
The neighborhood appeared fairly safe. We didn't have one problem and we were four young women. Plenty of markets nearby open late. The metro is five blocks (about 8 minute walk). 15 minute metro ride into Manhattan. Easy. I would recommend!
Claire was a wonderful and accommodating host! We enjoyed our stay immensely. I stayed at her place with my sister, father, and uncle. We were in town from the midwest for four days/nights to attend the Belmont Horse Race and do some tourist stuff in Manhattan. There was MORE than enough room for all of us! The place has two double beds, a twin bed and a sofa along with a large TV and internet access. We had our own bathroom with nice shower down the hall and shared a kitchen. She provided clean towels. We also had our own separate entrance. There was an amazing backyard space with lots of furniture and my father enjoyed winding down with a glass of wine there every night. If you are not familiar with Clinton Hill, it is a wonderful "up and coming" neighborhood. I lived there two years ago and was shocked at all of the new shops and restaurants that have popped up even since I left! Her place is a ten minute walk to the Nostrand A train stop which runs express into Manhattan. She is a five minute walk to the Bedford/Nostrand G train, a local Brooklyn train. We had wonderful Cuban food at "Pilar" which is only a few blocks away, and ate many times at the great restaurants in Fort Greene which is only about a mile walk away. This was an incredible deal in a great neighborhood! I cannot recommend this place enough. Having lived in New York, I know a good deal when I find one, and this is a GREAT deal! Book it!
My mother and I loved staying in Claire's comfortable and lovely home. I'm not a regular airbnb user but needed an affordable and conveniently located place to stay for my mom's first trip to New York. This was perfect. I love Brooklyn and have stayed in this neighborhood before, so it was like going back to a really familiar place. The place is just as described, and bigger than I expected. Very clean, and you have your own bathroom, in addition to private access to the floor where the bedroom is located that makes it feel more like having your own apartment than a one bedroom. We didn't spend time in the back garden (because we were out all the time!) but it was also lovely and really great for chilling in the early morn or in the late night when you need some air. Claire was super accommodating and lovely, and helped us with all our needs immediately. She's very good at communicating and it was always easy getting a hold of her. The neighborhood is friendly and safe, and there are multiple subway stations nearby that make traveling to Manhattan and other parts of Brooklyn really easy and practical. All in all, I would definitely come back to Claire's next time I'm in NYC and need a wonderful, yet affordable place to stay. Thank you Claire!
Claire was a very good host! Her family was very sweet. They give you the bottom floor of their home which is very spacious! Really pleased with our experience!
