Welcome to Fort Greene.
This cozy, cute, and ethnic-feeling private room is available in the heart of Fort Greene! The room has a full-sized bed and the room is facing our private backyard so that it's quiet. You would hear beautiful birds chirping during the daytime. During the summer time, you feel like as if you are in a forest:)
Our apt is located in the center of the historic Fort Greene, so that you can easily spend all of your day around in this neighborhood. Because there are so many things happening here and you can easily walk to Park Slope area, and also using the Citi bike you can even go to Williamsburg, Dumbo, Red hook..etc...Our neighborhood has an artsy vibe (Spike Lee's office is right in front of our building), laid back, dog friendly, and the most important is it's a SUPER SAFE neighborhood. I am a musician so I come home late quite often but I feel safe. I've lived in this neighborhood for 12years, and never experienced or never heard of any bad news.
I don't offer any breakfast or coffee because I would like guests to experience our beautiful neighborhood. There are a many choices of cafes that serves excellent coffee and pastries. But we provide some tea and fresh juices.
If you are tired of staying in the hotels, and willing to experience cozy, relaxing home after your long day, this place is for you.
Our house is perfect for couple, by yourself, and good friends, who are willing to explore local during exploring the city.

There are several Airbnbs in Ft. Greene but Etsuko's happens to be on the same street where my son lives. Etsuko was extremely responsive from the beginning of the inquiry and flexible about our arrival time and several other details. She was just as welcoming in person - same for her wonderful roommate Joanna. Momo is a bonus - sweetest dog ever. The room was comfortable and perfect for coming-and-going both down the street and toggling between Brooklyn/Manhattan/Queens over a long weekend. Lots of great restaurants/cafes/bars steps away from her front door. Etsuko's car service recommendation also worked beautifully. Really a perfect experience for my first time using Airbnb!
Etsuko's apartment was wonderful!! The room was clean and spacious, especially for NYC. Her dog is adorable. Her roommate, Joanna, is also sweet. They were both so accommodating and made us feel at home. The location couldn't be better- 4 subway stations within short distance, and plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. Very safe.
Such a wonderful time with Etsuko and her roommate ! The place is clean and the room is cosy with space and a very god bed. The apartment is so well located: nice places to eat, drink and a huge subway station nearby. Etsuko gave us advices and help us with our trip. She was so friendly :-)
We definitely recommend this place for your stay in New York and Brooklyn !
Very nice room, close to a number of subway stations and in a safe neighborhood. Etsuko is very friendly and flexible. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Etsuko was such an amazing host. She was warm, friendly and made us feel completely at home. The room is super cozy and comfortable, and it was so nice to come home to Momo as well. She is the sweetest dog and extremely friendly. The location is super convenient. You get to experience the best of Brooklyn while having easy access to Manhattan (there about 3/4 lines 5 minutes away from where the apt is). Thanks again, Etsuko and we'll definitely see you soon!
Loved staying here. Place was great and near lots of places to eat, drink, and have fun. Very very safe neighborhood. Parking was no problem. Easy to get everywhere by car and by subway. Etsuko was a wonderful host. We love and miss Momo! Will definately stay there again.
