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 house, 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. The sofa bed unfolds into a real, queen-sized bed, which has a spring-free design and a Tempurpedic mattress that will give you 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 seven 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 100+ 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 two cats, but they don't go into the studio space so even if you have allergies you should not notice them - I have had several guests who are allergic to cats and they have all been fine.
I look forward to hosting you!

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.
I do not have an air mattress for additional guests, but if you have a larger group I do have an additional bedroom in the back part of the lower level of the house that I occasionally rent out; access can be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
I try to be environmentally conscious, so appreciate it if you make sure to turn off all of the lights, A/C, etc. when you leave the apartment for the day - thank you in advance!
No smoking or pets. Space limited to 2 guests unless negotiated prior to arrival. Check in/out times are flexible, to be worked out prior to finalizing the reservation.
