Come stay at our spacious and modern apartment in Kensington, Brooklyn! The neighborhood is located in South Brooklyn, and is a short 5-minute walk to the Ditmas Ave F train, or a 10-minute walk from the Cortelyou Road B,Q line. We are 3 stops from Prospect Park, and 6 stops from Coney Island. CVS and other supermarkets are located right around the corner, in addition to plenty of great ethnic restaurants and pizza, of course. A great way to experience "the real" Brooklyn.
The available room is comfortable and fully furnished with a brand new full-size bed, desk, and dresser. One large window faces away from the street, making it very quiet, even though we are located on a busy thoroughfare. The apartment features a full eat-in kitchen, as well as a HUGE living/dining room with a plush sectional sofa and a 46" TV with Hulu Plus, Netflix, and basic cable. WiFi included.
The 3-bedroom apartment is shared with a female graduate student (Veronika) and a male wine professional (Jesse). You have complete privacy in the room, and included are bed linens, towels, and other items you may need for a comfortable night's stay.
Looking forward to having you as a guest!

Interaction with Guests
We consider ourselves a "family," and sometimes cook together, watch movies at night, etc. Guests are encouraged to hang out and get to know us, although it's ok if you don't.
F train is located 4 blocks away, in addition to local busses.
We practice a "leave no trace" policy in the apartment, so guests are expected to also adhere to this and clean up after themselves when using the kitchen/common area. If staying for a long period of time, we expect guests to occasionally help with household cleaning.
Place is clean, comfortable, and exactly as described; building is safe and convenient to subway; neighborhood has great small produce shops. Jesse and Veronika are wonderful flat mates--friendly, helpful, respectful, and fun. Had a wonderful time staying here!
Jesse and Veronika were amazing hosts!!! The apartment was exactly as described and If I could, I would definitely stay there again.
I've had the greatest pleasure of getting to know Jesse and Veronika during my last month in the city. Prior to my arrival, Jesse was very communicative to ensure that I was properly received and settled in. The apartment is very spacious, clean and tastefully appointed with artwork by the talented Veronika and vintage items collected by Jesse. The neighborhood is diverse yet safe, with amenities just around the corner (be sure to keep a lookout for the lovely bodega cats lazing by the sidewalks) and trains to Manhattan via the F and Q or a quick transfer on the G to Queens. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations over meals and television shows and these, in my opinion, made for a pleasant way to start or end the day. I also appreciated Veronika going out of the way to drive me to the airport, an offer I initially turned down but was soon thankful for, so I was spared from lugging my overpacked luggage up and down subway stations. Overall, it was a most wonderful stay and I, without a doubt, will recommend a stay here. Thank you, Jesse and Veronika, for everything and I wish you both the best in your future endeavors.
I had a great time staying with Jesse and his roommate Veronika. They were more than willing to answer any questions I had about the city and were lovely roommates. The apartment is lovely and spacious and the area is very safe. The room is big and the bed is comfy. I really had a fantastic time staying at Jesse's listing. I highly recommend a stay!
I have spent a month with Jesse and Veronika, they are very nice and always willing to help and to give advices.
The apartment is spacious, nice and always very clean.
The neighborhood is very safe and nice.
I definitely recommend it.
Jesse was a fantastic host, and I would definitely recommend to anyone staying in Brooklyn. Jesse provided everything as listed and more, and made my stay as comfortable as possible.
I stayed for a brief 4 weeks in Jesse and Veronika's and I feel so bad that i hadn't stayed longer.
They made me feel at home from the very moment I stepped into the house. They are both amazing hosts and always there to help out. They only interact as much as you want and give you your space. They are very busy with their own lives but are sweet enough to give you suggestions to go around and will grab a drink and socialise whenever possible.
ROOM & HOUSE:
The room is clean, quiet and well furnished with a spacious closet. Has a window for adequate ventilation. It also has a beautiful painting by Veronika which you grow to appreciate day by day. The house is much better than in the pictures. It is well furnished with a well equipped kitchen and store. The heating is very efficient. The Bathroom is very clean and well maintained.
I left this place with a lot of memories in such a short time. When I come back I really hope I can stay here again.
I am a wine writer and vintage/old fashioned lifestyle enthusiast. I love to meet interesting and inspiring new people during my adventures. Currently, I live and work in Brooklyn, NY at a small wine shop, and I'm always looking for the next delicious thing to uncork and share with people!
