Enjoy a private studio-like apartment in a hip Brooklyn neighborhood--with beautiful Prospect Park across the street. 20 minutes to the heart of Manhattan, and a couple subway stops to all major subway lines. Quiet and comfort await you!

The space

Perfect place to stay if you are visIting NYC or need a place to rest your head while you look for a long-term sublet or apartment. This is a 1- bedroom apartment with a kitchen/living room that has a futon couch/bed and bathroom. The apartment is located across the street from Prospect Park and around the corner from the Q express train (20 minutes to Manhattan).

The apartment is in a small complex with a grand lobby and elevator. The kitchen/living space (where you will stay) has a 4-burner stove and oven, refrigerator, futon couch, and table. The bedroom is where I stay. This is a cozy and comfortable place. Instead of an exercise room, you have 585 acres of trees, meadows, and trails right across the street at beautiful Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens.

One stop north on the Q train brings you to 7th Avenue in Park Slope. Two stops north brings you to Atlantic Avenue where you can catch a concert or watch the Brooklyn Nets at the new Barclay’s Center, or transfer to almost every subway line the city has to offer (N, R, B, 2, 3, 4, 5, and LIRR train). Or just stay on the Q to get to the heart of downtown Manhattan or Times Square.

Occasionally you'll hear street traffic but it’s quiet at night. There isn’t much counter space for cooking big meals, but if you can improvise it’s definitely doable. There are several great restaurants in the area including nearby Park Slope to order in – I use Seamless all the time. There is limited closet space, one in the hallway for your coat, etc.

There is no TV, so if you want a night of entertainment at home, just do what I do and use your laptop for Netflix, Hulu, etc. Wifi is excellent.

I've lived in Brooklyn/NYC for 7 years and will be a great resource for you during your stay. Feel free to contact me to ask any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!

Monica was a great host! I really enjoyed my stay in Brooklyn. It was a relatively short stay but she was very accommodating to me. My favorite part is the welcome binder she provides that has most of the FAQs of the location answered. I highly recommend this location!

Monica's place was very great. She wa very helpful with checking in. And she has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The biggest plus however is the neighborhood. She lives at prospect park and right at the subway ( 40 minutes to Coney Island, 20 minutes to Manhattan). But even better is Brooklyn right outside the door. It's a very lively and fun place with alot of restaurants and bars. I recommend this to everybody!

Monica was brilliant. I needed just one night before flying out from NYC, and i'd left it late to organise (too busy enjoying my first big apple trip). Monica got back to me really quickly and maintained clear, quick comms throughout, and organised key pickup while she was at work. Actually bumped into each other in her street - had a very nice chat. Didn't see her beyond that, but that was enough to confirm - if the emails weren't enough - that i was dealing with a top-drawer host. The room was clean and BIG (enough for a spot of bad yoga) - with sink and fridge. Warm Brooklyn arvo with sun flooding in. Fan came in handy. Great info in a guest folder - apartment tips, local shops etc. - not the usual advertising guff, but hand crafted! And the park! bedroom looked out onto the lovely Prospect Park. Perfect for my morning run. Subway v v close, which is great if you're on a budget and have lots of luggage, like me. Building has seen better days, but after a week in a Times Square hotel it was a relief to get a bit of normal. Neighbours were friendly enough, and a seven year old coming home from school told me all about her field trip and how they all screamed cos it was such fun! When i woke to leave for JFK i found detailed subway-airtrain instructions left along with a map Monica had printed and marked up while i was out the previous night. Blimey! Beyond the call, that... Thanks again Monica!

Mónica was a great host, very responsive and extremely easy regarding checkin and checkout. The room itself is spacious and comfortable, if a little too hot (there's a fan to fight the heat back). Monica knows everything you need to know on brooklyn and has a very comprehensive welcome book with plenty of recommendations on different neighborhoods. The apartment is conveniently located, in front of prospect park and within a 1 min walk to metro station

Monica was really lovely! I didn't get the chance to meet her, but everything was set up when we got there. She gave us lots of details about the apartment, so checking in went really smoothly. We loved the location - right across the street from Prospect Park!

Monica has a nice space right next to Prospect Park. The room was clean and the futon comfortable! Monica was a great host - good communication and had a nice little binder with the wifi password, local maps and menus.

My trip was exactly as expected! Monica is awesome and was super flexible with my last minute organization...! The room was also what I expected: it's clean, there is everything you (URL HIDDEN) I recommend it. She has a nice book with tons of good addresses which was super useful for us! Also, and a huge plus, the subway is like 2 min walking, really cool!
