About this listing

The space

Coming to NYC for a boondoggle? Or perhaps for work? Why not combine a little of both? :) This apartment offers proximity to culture, nature, and everything in between.

I'm a designer with a lovely bright remodeled apartment in trendy Prospect Heights:
• centrally located
• quiet
• 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment
• Full kitchen with stainless steel appliances (dishwasher too!)
• Queen sized Tempur-Pedic bed
• Super comfy couch
• wifi
• stereo
• 2/3/B/Q subways - 3 minute walk (2 blocks)
• Super easy access to Manhattan ( 20 minutes via subway)
• on premise washer and dryer (card operated, you just add cash to it to use it)
• lots of books, hints of great concerts attended, and even an acoustic guitar should you feel inspired. :)

Less than 5 minute's walk:
• Subways! 2/3/B/Q
• Prospect Park - fantabulous for walkers / runners
• Grand Army Plaza Farmer's Market, held every Saturday
• Brooklyn Public Library
• Brooklyn Museum
• Brooklyn Botanical Gardens
• Amazing bars, cafes, restaurants, and grocery

10-15 minute's walk:
• Barclay Center
• Adjoining neighborhoods of Park Slope, Fort Greene, and Clinton Hill

This place has design inspired but not luxury finishes. It is modern within a traditional exterior, clean and has everything you need for a visit!

My cozy apartment is an amalgamation of 17+ years of world trekking (10 countries and 4 continents so far) so you will find little influences of that throughout. I'm a designer that specializes in making technology more accessible to every day people and empowering people with design and tech.

I live at my apartment full-time and rent it out when I travel. I think of Airbnb guests as friends who stay in my home. And because of this, if you happen to be new to AirBNB and don't have any reviews, please do verify yourself, provide a photo, and tell me a little something about yourself. Even if we never meet in person, I'd like you to be comfortable, and I will go out of my way to ensure that you have a great trip. That said, it's just little ol' me cleaning and organizing on your behalf--and I don't have the means to provide hotel-level service. Please enjoy the opportunity that Airbnb and my home provide to travel on the cheap to a world-class city while making a personal connection with a local!

The photos are representative and I respect my guests' privacy so thank you for understanding that I can not show the apartment. I extend the same courtesy to all of my guests.

Guests will be provided with pillows, bed linens, towels, and makings for tea and coffee (because I have personally been frustrated when I want a cuppa and there is none to be had). I'll have to take a photocopy of your drivers' licence or passport for security purposes upon booking.

This apartment can accommodate up to 3 people (2 in the queen bed, one on the couch), 2 would be more comfortable. That said, it may not be appropriate for people with super heavy luggage or who hate stairs.

ALSO: Smoking not permitted in apartment or bldg/ and No pets. If the dates that you are looking to book appear to be free, they are free. I update the calendar frequently so it is most likely accurate.

Mimi was very helpful with both the booking and check in. Apartment was in a good location and quiet. It is quite small (but Mimi makes no secret of this) and could definitely have been a little cleaner when we checked in. The bed and bed linen was fine but there was certainly some room for dusting and cleaning of the floors. No big deal but there was no iron / ironing board and also the bedroom got quite hot, even though the air conditioning and fan was on in the lounge. We didn't use the (building) laundry. It is a fourth floor walk up so be mindful of that if you have lots of luggage as we did. Overall a satisfactory but solid experience.

Response from Mimi:
I was horrified to hear about the floors since I'd sent someone in to professionally clean everything prior to Lee's stay (I was out of town during his visit). I would have sent them back to take care of the issue if I had known and I did check in with Lee after their check in so I was surprised to hear this feedback upon departure when I wasn't given the chance to rectify it.

For a visit to Brooklyn, there's no better location than Mimi's stylish, sunlight-filled top-floor apartment! Every aspect of the design was thought-through to be exactly right - it's comfortable, beautiful and a true pleasure to spend time in. And Mimi is extremely responsive and a positively wonderful host. We can't recommend her highly enough!

My folks were in town visiting and I had them stay at Mimi's awesome apartment. She's a super reliable and easygoing host, and the apartment is clean and in a nice building on a quiet street just off Grand Army Plaza. If you've never been to Brooklyn, this location is ideal - it's right next to Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum, tons of bars and restaurants and a few different subway lines. Great spot!

My parents stayed at Mimi's place this past weekend. It was cute, comfortable, and very clean. They do a lot of airbnb's to visit their my daughter, and this is one of the nicest in the area. Fair warning: it is a four floor walkup, but the steps are not too bad!

My apartment contains inspirations for my work, pieces I have hauled lovingly back from Europe & Asia, vintage modern pieces, snapshots of my history, and eclectic art from far and near. I spent years living and working abroad (Sydney, Australia, London, Singapore, China) and frequently travel for my work. Having wandered to different locales, I always appreciate a cozy, inviting place to stay and some local knowledge. I try to offer the same for my guests. My apartment is convenient, quiet, and comfy. While I've been on AirBNB since 2011, I've just started letting my flat out recently and it's been wonderful meeting everyone!
