Being on the historic registry, the neighborhood looks much like it did in the early 1900's- except the trees are bigger:)
During the 18 years I have owned and hosted guests in my home, this room has seen many incarnations; from sewing/art room, to sanctuary room....

**We have a min. stay of 4 nights. Our limit is for 1 adult or 2 children for this room.
We know that our guests' privacy is a given but also, to make any stay as much as it can be, having someone that knows NYC, the shows, museums, art events, new hip bars and music venues can really make the difference!
Enjoy the beauty of the backyard and deck, front porch, and the quiet for a good night's sleep.
Our neighborhood is in the historic registry and was built between 1880 and 1914 mostly as country homes for early (silent film) movie stars, bankers and businessmen. Now, the film industry uses the neighborhood and its homes as sites of numerous films. My home has been featured in a few productions:)

HI! When I am not running my business, I am a projects guy- I love fixing up my vacation home rentals in Key Largo Florida.
The renovation team consists of us- fun-loving couple that are passionate about life, music, art, gardens and our wonderful black lab that travels everywhere with Giana.
We have hosted guests from all over the world: in our Brooklyn, NY home since 1992 and now in Key Largo Florida.
We love kayaking & fishing all through the waters of Key Largo and Jamaica Bay in Brooklyn, biking along the bike paths of Key Largo, or Prospect Park, Brooklyn, snorkeling at John Pennecamp State Park.
We love traveling, and with that comes learning languages - we speak a little German and Italian and speak Hebrew fluently.
We are involved in many projects where we can spread compassion and generate good. They tend to mesh and outgrow from our interests and projects.
We are involved in the Arts- both creating and supporting. I play accordian and Giana, the piano. Our movie tastes range from Casablanca to Under the Tuscan Sun- then again, they are both love stories:) We both love to cook, especially with friend and family.
What's it like having us as hosts? First, we do this because we enjoy it- meeting new people, making people happy and sharing the great things our places have to share.
We are flexible to what you need in your stay with us- help with shows, a desk for your room, hanging out with us or wanting your privacy.
Our places have plenty of space, communal and private, porches, gardens, indoor kitchens and outdoor BBQs.
Common occurrences: will meet you at the door, hot coffee, ice water or beer/wine to share; take you on boat or kayak tours of our beautiful bay;
We both enjoy meeting new people and helping with making our places a good retreat. Giana had worked in the health care field and now her 'patients' are renovating our places and decorating! We are always doing something- gardening, new colors, adding a new kitchen tool. So if there is something you need, or would like, just ask-- it may be in our basement waiting to be used:)
We are conscientious about keeping our places clean, bug free; We expect our guests to be respectful of our home.
We think time away from the normal routines of life is important and vacations should be easy to enjoy. Easy to rejuvenate! Let us know if they need something, having a good time and visiting again:)
