Clean and comfortable master bedroom with private bathroom. Quick train ride into Manhattan. Lots to see and do in Brooklyn too :)
Spacious Master Bedroom Suite, your very own private bathroom with shower & large bathtub. Your stay includes fresh linens, towels, coffee and free wifi. Our home is on the first floor of a charming Pre War building. We have a very large space by Brooklyn's standards. Two windows, wood floors, air conditioning in the summer and heat in the winter make the room cool and comfortable.
Kensington/Ditmas Park is a very nice Brooklyn neighborhood just a few blocks south of Brooklyn's beautiful Prospect Park. A stroll away Courtelyou Road hosts a strip of fine restaurants and a short 20 minute walk through the park will lead you to Brooklyn's beautiful Botanical Gardens and Prospect Park's new Center at Lakeside has a brand new ice skating rink. Discover Brooklyn's neighborhoods or take the F or Q train just a short 30 minute ride into midtown Manhattan or historical Coney Island in Brooklyn. Kensington horse stables are in walking distance, the horses are often trailing through Prospect Park - always a beautiful sight! Your hosts Jodi and John are native New York artists. No one knows the city like John - people are always asking him for directions!
Brooklyn is awesome! Come stay at our home.
We are present during your stay.
We are conveniently located close to the F and the Q trains into Manhattan.

Once everything is confirmed we can send you directions if you need from closest subway or directions to us from wherever you are! Look forward to meeting you!
Jodi and John were great hosts. I had never used airb&b before, but they made me feel comfortable right away. Their location was just a block away from my son's apartment and so the location was ideal. The bed was super comfortable, and the room was open, spacious, and tastefully decorated. They were attentive to my needs and I felt well taken care of. Would definitely stay there again.
Our stay with Jodi and John was great! They (as well as Jude) were very personable, fun to talk to as well as giving us our space and privacy. The room was large, with a private bath (a real plus) and a comfortable bed. Plus there was coffee en suite! We'd stay with them again in a heartbeat.
I had another great stay with Jodi and John. Thank you!
First the good things: having a private bathroom is an advantage over other places. The building is indeed very nice. The streets surrounding the building are not as nice, but apparently safe. They have a coffee machine at the room so you can make your own coffee at anytime. That was a nice touch.
Now for the bad things: the room is not dark at all but the rest of the apartment is, since John and Jodi stay in the couch and have a large curtain blocking the light coming from the outside. Staying at that room I felt a little isolated, and it could use some more frames on the wall or decoration to make it look warmer.
To be fair, most of the nights I didn't stay at Jodi's place because I was staying up late at a friend's house, but I slept in at least one night and like I said, it felt a little lonely in there. Perhaps if the bed was at the middle of the room?
Summary: it's a good place to stay, but it felt pricey for what it offered.
To be fair, Dario stayed only one of the 4 nights! We dont advertise our entire apartment. We offer a very large, clean private beautiful bedroom with a completely private bathroom. John's original art work line the walls throughout the apartment (so much for no art on the walls)! I am very surprised, almost shocked that Dario has said these things. We allow guests to come and go as they please and so the only way for us to have privacy for both us and our guests is to have a curtain/divider in the living room where we sleep (not on the couch btw). We value our guests privacy and try to accomodate them in any way we can. We asked Dario during his stay if he was comfortable or if he needed anything, etc. He said everything was fine. We always leave a night light on in the hallway. The bed is fine and comfortable and certainly doesn't need to be in the middle of a room! Strangely, Dario also left behind two pairs of his dirty underwear and socks on the bathroom floor.
Planned another NYC trip, and was so relieved that John and Jodi weren't already booked for the days we were going to be there. My boyfriend and I had stayed with them a few months back and everything went very smoothly. Where we already knew what to expect, and had met John and Jodi, we knew we wanted to stay at their place again. Everything was the same as we had remembered it and the same as listed in their profile. After this stay, I would still book with them if I will be in NYC again, and I would still recommend their place to others.
Josh and Jody were very friendly, we had two nice days in Brooklyn and they told us where to go in the area. This part of Brooklyn is so beautiful with all those different houses and apartments. The room and the master bathroom were clean and very cute. Next time we will stay at their place again ;-)
I had a great experience with Jodi and John. The location was not far from the subway. The room is huge and I loved having the private bathroom.
Jodi is a Brooklyn native and John has been here more than twenty years. We are free spirited artists who enjoy walking and biking. We love our hometown as well as exploring the nooks and crannies of exciting New York City.
