The Space

Beautiful Artist’s duplex house.

The bedrooms are large, sunny and open on a quiet tree lined-block. Each bedroom is equipt with fresh linens, towels, a/c, a queen size bed and a sitting area. There is also a very nice double mattress queen sized air mattress and a couch for sleeping on. One of the bedrooms also has a bathroom (with no shower).

This colorful house is located on 11th Street in Park Slope Brooklyn. It is furnished with eclectic vintage and antique furniture and is decorated with an array of art from the turn-of-the century to the present. The 1950’s style eat-in kitchen has a dishwasher, space in the refrigerator, many cooking tools and spices. The apartment includes high-speed wireless Internet, washer/dryer and beautiful garden. DOGS ARE WELCOME.

The neighborhood in what many consider to be one of the most desirable neighborhoods in all of New York City borders and Gowanus, Carroll Gardens and Red Hook (which are all very interesting areas). Park Slope is filled with grocery stores, banks, coffee shops, bars, music venues, several excellent restaurants and 2 farmer's markets. I will provide a list of the many restaurants in my neighborhood which include Japanese, Thai, Mexican, Indian, French, Italian and local and seasonal American cuisine.
The house is also a 5 minute walk from Prospect Park and a ten minute subway ride to the Brooklyn Museum and Botanical Gardens. The F, G and R trains are just a block and two blocks away. The F, G and R trains take you directly to a lot of neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Manhattan (which is a 20 min ride). They are also easy transfers to 2, 3, 4, 5, Q, D and B trains. Parking is relatively easy in this neighborhood

I am a glass artist and have a studio in Gowanus, which is very close to my home. I spend a lot of time in this neighborhood and have many suggestions of things to take advantage of in the vicinity. I will provide you with some homemade snacks for your stay and coffee and tea in the morning.

I require a $200 cash security deposit (taken out by airbnb). 100% of deposit is refunded, provided everything is intact. Also, my very nice housekeeper ensures that you have a clean room when you arrive. This cleaning fee is included in the cost of your room.

  • El departamento de Erica está maravillosamente ubicado a dos minutos de una estación del metro. El barrio es muy seguro y muy cerca de Park Slope donde encontrarás una gran cantidad de opciones para comer o tomar una copa. La decoración es muy personal ya que la anfitriona es una artista, así que pudiera ser problema si tienes niños pequeños. Como sea, aún cuando casi no tuvimos contacto con Erica, siempre estuvo al pendiente de nuestras necesidades y eso ayudo a que nuestra estadía fuera perfecta

  • Erica's home was perfect for our group of 7 women! It had all of the amenities we needed (kitchen, 2 bathrooms, enough seating in the living room, dishwasher, enough dishes/silverware, big fridge, 2 beds+very nice air mattress+long couch for sleeping and a large garden area where we could sit and drink coffee in the morning) and it was also a 4-min walk to the subway - and a 30 min ride on the train to Times Square. We also walked all around Brooklyn exploring flea markets, the Brooklyn Bridge area, Williamsburg, Prospect Park and Park Slope. Erica's apartment was clean and looked just as the pictures show. Her artwork is so creative and made us feel like we were staying in a fun and funky museum - it was great. She was prompt in responding to our questions and was able to be flexible about a meet up time to hand off the key. Thanks Erica!

  • Malgré une maison située dans une rue tranquille et proche du métro beaucoup de choses sont à améliorer .

  • This was a great location in a residential neighborhood in Brooklyn. Large comfortable rooms. We slept very well! Near the subway. We enjoyed the artistic décor. Erica was very accommodating with our check-in and check-out times. We hope we can stay there again.

  • Excellent location, very close to the subway stop. The home is like an art studio, so not suitable for clumsy people or young children. It was very clean, neat and quiet. We would stay there again.

  • Lovely apartment in a very nice neighbourhood. Two equally large bedrooms, the whole house is very nicely decorated, it's full of artsy stuff (a lot of it by Erica herself). Would definetely recommend the place!

  • Erica's place is absolutely charming. We were there with a large group doing an art installation over a long weekend and had a wonderful time at her home. The location in Brooklyn is great, right next to the subway. Would definitely stay there again in the future.

  • Erica and her apartment were wonderful. The pictures are just a taste of how lovely and spacious the home is. The location is close to the subway and the neighborhood is walkable to many nice restaurants and Prospect Park. Erica is a great host and I would not hesitate to stay with her again!
