Other Things to Note
Room 2.5 has a lower price because it has French Doors (sealed) and above them a large glass skylight overlooking rm #2 and thus not the greatest sound proofing. Great for families needing two adjoining rooms. Actually we're a quiet place so noise is a negligible issue. If your neighbor is talking loud on phone, just knock on their door.
Please lock the front and back doors after passing through them. You are welcome to use the kitchen, but please store food in containers and help keep it clean. There is no smoking in the house or in the garden.
The house was great as of the house keeper! A big Brownstone house, exactly what we were looking for staying in Brooklyn, we really felt like home! Private room with comfortable beds. Close to Manhattan through subway, Prospect Park in walking distance, very nice neighborhood with some restaurants and bars if you wanna hang out. Take the time to have little talk to Lisel, she's an adorable person. I would definitely recommand it :)
Great communication. We love that we could easily change to different room #5. Lot of space , Nice light from Windows, quiet street soft bed, nice garden we could use.
Conveniënt to Subway and lovely neighbourhood. Friendly and helpful hosts
Such a charming place, full of life. The neighboorhood is very safe and there are plenty of things to do. Eventhough we just see here a few times, the host was really kind! Thanks for everything! We'll go back soon! :)
Great location, comfortable room and Lisel was a gracious host. We look forward to returning!
Lisel and Betsy were very accomodating! Betsy was at work when we arrived, but she left us a key so we could get in to the house before heading to Manhattan. Both the house and room were very nice. The location is very conveniently located -- close to at least two different subway stations. We only spent one night, but when asked to leave our luggage at the house on the second day so we wouldn't have to carry it around New York, they let us do so. The only thing that caught us off guard was that we had to move from Betsy's house to Lisel's (only a short walk down the street) at 11am after our night, and we were still asleep because of the late New Year's celebrations. It wasn't that big a deal; it just surprised us.
The stay was great. SO happy to have found such a host in the same neighborhood of the venue the band was performing. Lisel was a great and welcoming host.
Lisel is great and so interesting to talk to. Great location, clean and friendly.
