The Space

Share our cozy Brooklyn home, enjoy our friendly hospitality, very comfortable accommodations and of course - our fantastic neighborhood!

Situated in picturesque Park Slope, 4 short blocks from the beautiful Prospect Park, our 2 bedroom, top floor brownstone apartment boasts spectacular views of steeple filled Brooklyn and downtown Manhattan. Our Rooftop garden - available weather permitting for your viewing and relaxing pleasure, boasts views ranging from Lady Liberty herself to beyond the Empire State building in midtown.

You will have your own private bedroom (air conditioned in the summer) with closet hanging space and storage. You will be sharing the apartment with us, a busy quiet couple - we are often not home, and our lovely shy pup Lola the King Charles Spaniel. Treats are provided so she will forever be in your favor!

We are readily accessible to Manhattan. Multiple subways are just three short blocks away (less than a five minute walk) and will whisk you into the city in a flash - we are 3 stops from downtown Manhattan. China Town, Little Italy, Lower East Side, Union Square, SOHO, Greenwich Village and the Highline are just fifteen minutes away by subway, Penn Station and Times Square are less than 30 minutes away and there are express trains that will get you to Central Park in a flash!

If exploring Brooklyn is in your agenda we are at the epicenter of Brownstone Brooklyn. Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Prospect Heights, Carroll Gardens and Boreum Hill are all nearby. Many stylish and tasty restaurants of countless cuisines, cafes, weekend markets and a huge variety of boutique stores are all within easy walking distance, delivering the best of what this eclectic area of Brooklyn has to offer!

Your private room, 20 feet x 7 feet, is perfect for one or two people. There is an air conditioner for cool air or just for the fan for white noise. The bedroom has a queen-size very comfortable bed with plenty of blankets and bedding.

In addition, if required, our living room couch becomes a comfortable single bed for a third person - or if two people wish to have separate sleeping arrangements.

We have one shared bathroom of generous size for New York. You'll be amazed at the size! The bathtub is comfortable for either a bath or a shower. Towels are provided.

Wireless high-speed internet is included. Currently there is no computer in the guest room but we have computers in the house that are available for your use. The television in the living room has local channels only but we do have a large supply of DVDs for your viewing pleasure including the epic New York Documentary if you want to do a little research before you set out for your days in the city.

The kitchen comes complete with dishwasher, full size gas stove and oven, fridge, utensils, crockery and cookware available for your use.

Full services are all within a few minutes walk, including supermarkets, drugstore/pharmacy, cafes and laundry services.

We will provide you with a map of the neighborhood and we have maps and travel guides on New York for you to use during your stay. We are also always happy to share our own experiences and ideas on what to see and all we love about Brooklyn and the city.

Park Slope is an amazing neighborhood full of top notch restaurants and charming boutiques. The apartment is walking distance from the The Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Brooklyn Flea Market, the new Barclays Center and Prospect Park with the weekend Farmer's Market.

We are a couple with a sweet King Charles Spaniel who is always happy to have some extra petting hands in the house but she stays out of the 2nd bedroom and we keep it pet free. We will be residing in the apartment during your stay however we both keep pretty busy schedules and are respectful of your needs as a guest.
Having us here does come with some perks: we will provide coffee or tea in the morning and a selection of home-baked goods once per stay from the hostess' own baking company: Magpies - you'll never want to eat a conventional pop tart after having a Magpie.
Sheets are laundered once a week for guests staying longer term. And of course between each guest's stay! The room has a firm and comfortable queen size bed, closet space for hanging clothing and a small dresser.
Parking is available on the streets here in Brooklyn with once weekly alternate side parking rules. We've got some tips and tricks for you if you are driving in.
If you are a larger family of 4 or more please see our other listing and the available dates for renting the entire 2 bedroom apartment.

  • Meghan and Paul's flat is charming. The bedroom is bigger than it seems to be on the photo. The view from the sitting room and the rooftop is amazing. The location is great: restaurants, cafés, supermarket, subway in a quiet neighbourhood. Meghan and Paul are friendly, and their little dog, Lola, is lovely.

  • Was a wonderful place in a wonderful neighborhood. We stay for 7days in Manhattan and the last three days in Brooklyn in Meghan and Pauls home. They were a very good host (the cookies were awsome) and Lola too.

    Good place to stay if you want to know Brooklyn.

  • Meghan and Paul are the best people you can stumble with. They made us feel great. Everything was fine. I thank a lot to have met them. They couldn't be better.

    June 2014
  • Meghan and Paul's place is in a really lovely part of Brooklyn that is close to places to eat, the subway, and a beautiful park. We especially liked the rooftop garden that overlooks the Manhattan skyline! Thanks Meghan and Paul for the great stay.

  • Short version:
    Exactly as advertised! Meghan and Paul are Awesome! BOOK NOW!

    Longer version:
    Although it was our first Airbnb experience, we can't imagine it will ever get better then this.
    We've spend 16 days here and all we can say is that it was a great experience.
    From the start they made us feel right at home.
    The apartment is clean and has a real Brooklyn vibe. The bathroom is really lovely and everything in the kitchen seemed to work properly.
    The neighborhood is also very nice, everything you need is around the corner and not to forget the 4 subway lines that will take you to any part of the city.
    The room is bigger than it looks on the pictures and there view is spectacular!
    Don't forget to make friends with there dog Lola, she is an angel.

    Oh and the Magpies…. mmmmm delicious Magpies!

    Thanks Meghan and Paul! You guys rock!

  • Meghan was the perfect hostess. The accommodations were exactly as advertised and the Magpies were both delicious and an added bonus. Both my husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will definitely plan on staying here on future trips to NYC & Brooklyn. Many thanks, Meghan.

  • I am so pleased I booked the Awesome Brownstone Guest Room for my 3 night stay in Brooklyn! A very nice room with a comfortable bed to sleep in and the room is surprisingly bigger than the photo captures. The apartment is clean, beautiful and the hosts are really lovely folks who share their delicious Magpie tarts. Book it now, you won't be sorry!!!

    April 2014
  • We had a very pleasant stay with Meghan and Paul, who were helpful and accommodating. Their brownstone is full of character, with beautiful old wooden floors and subway tile in th bathroom, and it's located in the heart of Park Slope. Meghan brought us some Magpies for breakfast and they were delicious! Definitely recommend their home and hope we'll get a chance to stay with them again.

    October 2013
  • We had a marvelous time at Meghan's! The apartment is very well located (public transport nearby and nice neighborhood), the hosts are perfectly kind and pleasant, the shy little dog is an unobstrusive companion and everything was clean and comfortable. Entirely recommendable!

  • OUTSTANDING. Every aspect of my stay was remarkable. The room is huge and beautiful. The home is spacious and comfortable, close to transit of all forms and so close to Prospect Park I spent part of almost every day there. I fell in love with the roof, the dog, the block, the farmer's market, the cafe next door where I had breakfast twice, the neighborhood, the pastries the hosts left for me, the stone steps, the view. I felt completely at home, which Meghan and Paul encouraged. I had just enough contact with the hosts -- they're hands-off and helpful at the same time and quick to communicate. I loved this great apartment in this amazing part of New York!

About
I am an entrepreneur with a successful baking company in the heart of the Brooklyn Food scene with hand pies akin to your favorite toaster pastry that can be found at The Ace hotel, cafes in and around Brooklyn, Wholefoods and Smorgasburg! I love entertaining and hope to parlay all of my interests in to a farm and agriculture center with an event space, cafe and bed and breakfast in the near future. My boyfriend Paul is a wonderful affable people person who loves to recommend great places to eat and drink. We love having guests and can't wait to start hosting people through Air bnb! We are hands off hosts who are happy to give you ample space but we are available to you if you need any help with the apartment, travel throughout the city or just some NY tips and tricks. Come for a stay! We're expecting you!
