About this listing
One room in a beautiful, light-filled, good energy Brooklyn loft! Full wall of south-facing windows, hardwood floors, high ceiling and big open kitchen / living room are just some of the perks of this space. Come find out more!
Welcome to our Bushwick home! We live in a beautiful, sun-filled loft in one of Brooklyn's hippest up-and-coming neighborhoods. Although the fast-paced life of New York City keeps us busy and away often, when we are home we like to feel that our space is a welcoming oasis, and we would like to share it with you!
. Private bedroom with LOFTED super comfy queen bed, plenty of storage space, full wall of windows and lots of light on the 3rd floor of a traditional loft building with 12-foot ceilings and hardwood floors.
. Access to huge, open kitchen built for those of us who love to cook. Big and comfy living room and dining room. Clean and cozy bathroom. Lots of sunlight and tons of plants and fresh cut flowers! Huge rooftop with beautiful views of the city. Laundry on premises.
. Coffee, tea, towels and fresh linens always provided. A wide variety of books available to borrow, and free copies of The New Yorker magazine to keep if you wish!
. An easy 4 minute walk to the L train at Morgan Ave or Montrose Ave, or a 10 minute walk to the JMZ trains, guaranteeing transport to the city in 20 minutes. Walking distance to Williamsburg, Greenpoint, parks and other attractions.
. Hip neighborhood filled with cute coffee shops, convenient health food markets, art galleries, bars, performance and music spaces, infamous Roberta's Pizza restaurant and up-and-coming MoMo's fusion sushi, funky graffiti, smells of bread baking factories, and gorgeous Manhattan skyline sunsets.
Also, please note that with our full wall of south-facing windows, these lofts can get HOT during the summer. The private rooms are furnished with very effective air conditioners, but the common space and small, cozy room are cooled only by fans. During the winter, there is NO HEATER in the space, but the apartment stays nice and warm as long as we get even a little sunshine, and the blankets on the bed are also super cozy!
Finally, this is a BROOKLYN LOFT. This means that it is big, beautiful, funky and airy with great energy. It also means the walls are a bit thin (well, this is the case almost everywhere I've lived in Manhattan and Brooklyn!) and we must try to be respectful of our neighbors (even if they occasionally host parties, etc.) This is not luxury, it's loft life! And we love it! If you have any more questions about what my experience of this has been, please don't hesitate to ask.
If you are interested in staying, please make sure your profile is filled in and includes photos, and in your message let me know your plans for your stay in New York City. This is my home, and I am selective about who stay here! Again, send me a message with any questions, and then jump on board to come soak up the sun in our perfect Brooklyn Loft!
Guests will have access to all the common space in the apartment (full kitchen, bath, and living room) as well as the private bedroom. Laundry is on the floor and there is a fabulous roof, as long as no one has done anything stupid lately to get it closed down. :)
Interaction with guests
I am currently in and out of the apartment, working and traveling, so the extent of our in-person interaction will depend on what's going on when you're here. When I'm around, I'd love to have a cup of tea with you and chat, but even when I'm not I'm always available to answer questions about the neighborhood or the loft. If you'd like to know more specifically how much I'll be around, send me your dates and I can give you a better idea!
. We expect guests who stay with us to have a reason to be in New York! We are not home often, and while you should feel free to relax and enjoy our beautiful home, we're not interested in guests who want to sit around all day. So tell me, what to you do?
. We expect guests to be tidy and clean up after themselves. I keep my home clean and organized, and expect that the kitchen and bathroom will be kept as such, and all personal things will be kept in the private bedroom.
. Other than tea and coffee, food and other things found in the apartment are personal (unless otherwise offered) and we ask that you respect that. There is space in the cupboard and the fridge for food, in the bathroom for personal products, and plenty of space in the bedroom for luggage.
. Please turn off lights, fans, A/C units, etc. when leaving the apartment to save energy. Not only does this help me survive with my starving artist lifestyle, but it's the right thing to do for the planet!
... These are really the only ground rules. And don't get the wrong idea, we are super laid back! If you are clean and respectful and excited to explore this city, we'll get along beautifully.

I am an actor/dancer/singer/yoga teacher/burlesque performer/waitress/barista/bartender/do-too-many-things-er! Welcome to the world of New York City freelance. Currently, I am working as a yoga teacher and in a glorious little jazz bar in the West Village called Small's. I grew up in a small town in New Hampshire on the border of Vermont and have lived all over the world since I was a teenager, including Europe, West Africa, and India. I have traveled as a couch surfer often, and the generosity and love that I received when I stayed in other people's homes has inspired me to share my own. Unfortunately, living in this city is very expensive, and I am able to afford this incredible apartment by charging a reasonable daily rate. I hope to meet you soon!
Music: Radiohead, Paul Simon, Bob Marley, James Blake. I love everything that makes me move and/or feel, from electronica to bluegrass to folk to jazz.
Authors: J.D. Salinger, John Irving, Tom Robbins, Isabel Allende. I love beautiful characters and stories.
Film: old black and whites, quirky comedies, dark dramas, fantastic fantasies. Too many favorites to list!
Other: biking over bridges, my vegetable juicer, singing in the shower, dancing in the dark, instagram, cooking vegetarian brilliance, fancy soy lattes and cigarettes, tantra, astrology and magic.
