Long-term apartment share opportunity in a great home 20 yards from the beach in Black Rock, a charming artistic waterfront neighborhood which abuts Fairfield, CT

The Space

Stay on the third floor of a beautiful, historic victorian home overlooking Black Rock Harbor in Black Rock, CT. Black Rock is a charming artistic waterfront neighborhood which abuts the Town of Fairfield, and was originally part of the town prior to being absorbed into the city of Bridgeport.

The home has gorgeous water views. The beach is a 20 yard walk down the (website hidden) Marys by the Sea which has a terrific 1 mile running and biking path directly on the water is a half mile walk away.

Ideal location for access to Fairfield County, NYC and New Haven County. 1 mile from the new Metro-North Fairfield Metro station from which express trains run to/from Grand Central Terminal in NY as well as to New Haven and elsewhere in Fairfield County. Amtrak station in Bridgeport 10 minutes away from which Boston is a 2 1/2 hour train ride.

Room available is a private bedroom in a cozy two bedroom third floor apartment. I am very rarely at the apartment - typically no more than one night a week.

The apartment is very cozy, although not large. Aside from the two bedrooms there is the Main Room and the bathroom. The Main Room includes the kitchen and a sitting area as well as computer desk.

WIFI available as is blue-ray DVD player and a connector to stream from laptop to the tv. No cable tv service is currently set up but that could be easily changed.

Check In
  • Blake was a great host. He was courteous, respectful, and flexible. He was also very helpful in pointing out some neat things to do in the area, even though I got in late and we weren't able to connect in person until the next morning.

    I was only able to stay one night, but I would have loved to spend more time getting to know him and would of course definitely stay with him again. He was very flexible: I messaged him in the morning to see if the room would be available, and he responded promptly. Because he was so courteous, I was able to secure the room for a last minute trip to Connecticut for a conference with a great host. Not only that, but he was willing to spend some time with me pretty early in the morning so we could get a chance to connect. The fact that he was willing to go out of his way to get to know me, even if for a little bit, spoke volumes.

    Blake's very interesting and engaging, and a very respectful host. I would highly recommend him.

  • Blake was an excellent host. His place was clean, comfortable and just as described. Excellent spot for a walk along the water, good restaurants nearby and convenient to I-95.

  • My stay in Fairfield was everything I had hoped for, in no small part due to my consummate host, Blake Sturcke. Before I ever met him in person I could tell just by our electronic communications that this gentleman was a kindred spirit, with an inherent cordiality and hospitality that would make my visit feel almost like being at home. Blake's apartment has a spacious, rustic appeal and is very homey. Blake himself is warm, open, welcoming and a great conversationalist. I recommend Blake and his apartment to other Connecticut visitors with the greatest enthusiasm.

  • Blake is a great host, and I really appreciate him making my first experience using AirBnB a positive one!

    The room looks exactly as it does in the pictures, and is very quiet and comfortable..and the rest of the place is clean and inviting.

    The neighborhood is also quiet and close to anything you might need during your trip.

    If I ever make a return trip to Stamford, I'd happily contact Blake again.

  • Blake was an amazing host. He was truly accommodating and considerate, had great recommendations for things to do, and was extraordinarily easy to get along with. The apartment looks exactly as it does in the photo's; very cozy, clean and comfortable. The fully equipped kitchen was a pleasure to cook in. The house is beautiful and in a good part of town, close to many restaurants and cafes, as well as very convenient to get to from the highway. My stay was fantastic and I would highly recommend anyone to stay with Blake!
