I am HAPPY to say I have 55 POSITIVE REVIEWS!! Welcome to my home in Clinton Hill/Bed Stuy. This is an entire flat all to yourself. My creative 1 bedroom apartment boasts 9 foot tin ceilings and just the right amount of space for your stay. By Brooklyn Standards this is a decent sized apartment. My place is right on the second floor of my building so you do NOT have to walk up a ton of stairs. I am a designer and always try to make my apartments feel like my home so anyone who stays at my place will have a unique experience and feel comfortable while traveling! I have high expectations for the people who stay at my apartment. Essentially I would like people to use my space just as I do. I take my shoes off at the door, and keep my place extremely clean to keep any NYC pests out. I have filled every hole in my walls to make sure that the only guests that stay are ones that pay! HAHA. My apartment is on the border of Clinton Hill and Bed Stuy. I am really close to the G train Bedford-Nostrand stop. I am about a 10 minute walk to Pratt, and a few stops from Williamsburg with easy access via train to Manhattan. (15-20 minutes to Union Square). There are quite a few great cafes and bars near my place and I will be happy to share with you my faves! I look forward to having you stay at my place. My place is clean, comfortable, and provides an easy in and out of Brooklyn when traveling and touring around the city all day. Before booking please read the honest reviews of my space. I have more reviews than most places on airbnb and I am proud to say I have hosted since 2010.
So....I have 55 WONDERFUL reviews AND you can't beat my price! Book my place today and enjoy fall/winter in Brooklyn!
My neighborhood is changing everyday with restaurants popping up and cafes. It is very close to many other areas I love. I have always felt safe and so have the guests staying at my apartment.
There are quite a few bus lines near my street. With the G train Bedford-Nostrand stop only 2 blocks away it is really convenient to get around Brooklyn and Manhattan.
Shoes come off at the door. I try to be a quiet neighbor so I expect others to be mindful of stomping, screaming, or playing loud music. I would prefer that anyone that stays at my place does not engage with my neighbors...most people in my building don't know one another so if anyone asks who you are you say you are my cousins from out of town! :) I NEVER open the bathroom window because that light well is scary and who knows what is in there! Please turn off the lights when you leave and DOUBLE check that the gas on the stove is turned off. No really double check! My rules may sound harsh but I take a lot of pride in my space and would simply ask that while you are in my apartment to pretend like you are visiting your in-laws. Just be respectful and tidy and you will get a wonderful review to take with you to your next airbnb adventures.
I do not own a coffee maker. This is because the apartment is not big enough for all these gadgets. I also don't have a large garbage can and only use small bags from the supermarkets. This means I don't have garbage laying around for days.
If you use water out of my monster sized Brita filter in the fridge please fill er' up when you leave. I like to use the clear pitcher in my right cupboard with the fruits on it to add water more easily.
Do not leave ANY FOOD in the Fridge unless it's condiments that won't spoil. So no FRUIT or BREAD or MILK etc... that way the fridge is always left clean from anything that can spoil.
I have no garbage can due to little bugs called cockroaches....don't worry I have hermetically sealed you in my apartment...you will see a door sweep on my front door and I have also caulked/filled in almost every hole in my place to maintain a bug free zone. You can find small plastic bags for your garbage in a glass jar on the shelf in the kitchen. Feel free to add to my stock pile with your own.
I designed my bed so it looks like it floats....but don't worry it won't fall apart...that being said I wouldn't recommend putting too many people in that bed (if you know what I am saying). Some people complain about the size of my bed. It's a full size. It's not a QUEEN, or a KING...this is Brooklyn and it's the only size that fits. So please before you book my space...(if you are older and larger) this honestly isn't the apartment for you. I am 6'-2" and so is my boyfriend and we have no issues sleeping on the bed.
Towels are given to you in the beginning of your stay. Because most people stay for 5 days please only use the towels provided. Do not take any other towels unless you have let me know you need one. I need to make sure between my cleaners and my guests that laundry is coordinated properly.
If you bring your own towel please use that before using my stock pile. Just make sure before you leave you hang them over the shower or the bathroom door to dry so my cleaners can place them in the laundry basket.
Most of the dresser is empty for your things and there is also room in the bedroom closet for hanging items...TRUST me you do NOT want to open that other closet in my living room.
When you leave the apartment to head back home...LEAVE all keys on the key hooks under the mini Empire State Building (My gram and grandpa and his sister who are all pictured on my kitchen wall got the mini Empire building in 1947 when visiting NYC). Then take the extra key near the Empire and lock the door behind you...then slide the key back under the apartment door. Super easy!
Another house rule is that you have to go to a bar called the Black Swan which is near KFC on Bedford near the G train and order a Hensley. It's a bacon infused bourbon with maple and orange bitters. It's my favorite drink! Also do not go to Colador Cafe...on DeKalb there is better coffee at the Kolache Company.
Thanks for staying at my place!
I highly recommend Casey's place! It was very clean, well maintained and was conveniently located. The train was an easy stroll around the corner. He provided clean towels and helpful notes around the place so we knew where to easily find things. It was nicely decorated too. We were able to park right in front of the apartment for FREE all weekend, yay! :) The neighborhood has some great coffee shops, which is always a plus! Even though we never actually met Casey during our stay, he was super responsive when we had questions. Check in and check out was a breeze, and the building was actually very quiet for the city. It was the perfect size for a couple and we'd happily stay there again when visiting Brooklyn. Thanks Casey!
My boyfriend had a great time staying at Casey's place over a weekend spent visiting friends in Brooklyn. His apartment was very clean, stylish, snug, and warm (which I particularly appreciated given the frigid January weather). It's close to a subway stop and bars, cafes, and restaurants are nearby. Although we didn't meet Casey in person, he was a gracious host and checked in with us via text to make sure everything went smoothly.
Lovely spot, very easy check-in and check-out. Casey kindly allowed us a late checkout, and we very much enjoyed exploring the neighborhood! Would book again in a heartbeat!
Lovely appartment, nice location, pretty close from the subway! Would repeat the experience:)
Nice, clean and tidy apartment. Quite neighborhood. Groceries and coffee shops, bank and all necessary services a minute or two from your door. The host, Casey left accurate instructions and responded immediately when asked. Highly recommended!
Casey kindly took us in at last minute, was easy to communicate with and the place was as described. Close to the metro for getting in to manhattan, great value for the price and clean, if a little too warm for us. There were also some great places for coffee, drinks and dinner (beast of bourbon!) right round the corner.
Casey was great - clear, accurate directions for check-in; great info for the info; accurate info about the apartment.
The apartment was cozy, decorated with personality and extremely clean and well-cared for. Highly recommend if you're looking in the area.
