Welcome to Brooklyn! This studio apartment is separate from the rest of my house, so you'll have the private space all to yourself. There is easy access to Manhattan via the subway and great restaurants nearby. I hope to hear from you!
Welcome to my studio apartment in Crown Heights, Brooklyn! This apartment is in the lower level of my limestone townhouse, and is separate from the rest of the house - so you will have the space to yourself and complete privacy. It has a sunny southern exposure; bamboo floors; a kitchenette with an induction stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, dishes and pots/pans; a full bathroom with a bathtub, hair dryer and extra towels; cable TV and wifi access; and a portable air conditioner. As you'll see in my photos, I upgraded my sofa bed in 2013 - it unfolds into a real, queen-sized bed, which will be made up upon your arrival, and is topped with a Tempurpedic mattress pad for a great night's sleep.
Crown Heights is a lovely, diverse neighborhood that is getting increasing attention for its convenience and amenities - especially the growing number of restaurants on Franklin Avenue - and I live on a street of townhouses and small apartment buildings. The apartment is walking distance from the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the new Berg'n Beer Hall, food markets, coffee shops, restaurants, shopping, a yoga studio and a year-round Saturday farmer's market. Local spaces host literary readings, music and dance performances. Sometimes prospective guests ask about the neighborhood's safety - I'm happy to say that in the five years I've lived here I've never had any problems or concerns, even when coming home alone late at night, and none of my 70+ guests have either.
The Franklin Avenue subway station, which has the 2, 3, 4, 5 and S trains, is only two blocks away - you can get to the Brooklyn Academy of Music (great movies, live music, theatre and dance) in one stop, or to the east or west side of Manhattan in under 20 minutes. If you have a car with you, street parking is fairly easy (though you'll have to move the car some days for street cleaning). There is also a bicycle shop nearby that has daily rentals.
The apartment has its own entrance, so you will have privacy and plenty of quiet, except for occasional street noise. If you are a bigger group there is an additional bedroom in the back part of the lower level of the house that I also rent out; access can be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
Please note that I have a cat, but he doesn't go into the studio space so even if you have allergies you should not notice him - I have had several guests who are allergic to cats and they have all been fine.
I look forward to hosting you!
The apartment is a completely separate space from the rest of my house, with its own entrance, so you will have the space to yourself and complete privacy during your stay.
Because the apartment is separate from the rest of my house, and I am usually on a different schedule from my guests (going to work early, etc.), I often will not see people much during their stay. That being said, I am always available by phone if needed, and when I have had times to get to know my guests more I have really enjoyed it - it's one of the coolest aspects of Air B&B, in my opinion.
Crown Heights is a lovely, diverse neighborhood that is getting increasing attention for its convenience and amenities, and I live on a street of townhouses and small apartment buildings. My house is between Franklin Avenue and Bedford Avenue, just around the corner from the subway and many restaurants. The apartment is walking distance from the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the winter Brooklyn Flea and new Berg'n Beer Hall, food markets, coffee shops, restaurants, shopping, a yoga studio and a year-round Saturday farmer's market. Local spaces host literary readings, music and dance performances.
The Franklin Avenue subway station, which has the 2, 3, 4, 5 and S trains, is only two blocks away from the house, so you will have very easy access to both the east and west sides of Manhattan.
If you make a booking you'll see detailed instructions for getting to my house from all the local airports, either by public transportation or taxi.
No smoking or pets. Space limited to 2 guests unless negotiated prior to arrival. Check in/out times flexible, to be worked out prior to finalizing reservation.
A proposito dell'host, Erika
I have lived in Brooklyn for over 20 years, and in my house for 6 - making it a true home has taken a lot of effort, but has been a labor of love.
Although I have never thought of myself as an entrepreneur (I have always worked in social services, currently focusing on foster care), it has been fun creating a rental space in my house and I have really enjoyed the Air B&B guests I have hosted so far - it's been great to meet people from all over the world, and to show them a side of the city one doesn't get from the typical tourist spots.
In the time I've been in Crown Heights, the neighborhood has changed quite a bit - lots of young people have moved in, and several restaurants, arts groups and other businesses have followed. It's fun to see everything new going on, and I think makes it an interesting place to visit.
I look forward to hosting you during your time in Brooklyn!
