Le logement

Are you looking for an affordable but private place to stay during your next trip to NYC? Are you interested in experiencing a multicultural, authentic neighborhood while you're here? Are you a foodie looking to explore the Brooklyn dining scene? Our renovated one-bedroom basement suite with living room (sofa bed + 55-inch flatscreen TV), bathroom, kitchenette, washer/dryer, office nook, and separate entrance offers privacy, proximity to subways, and numerous amenities (dining, bars, grocery stores, boutiques, markets, parks) within walking distance -- take a look at our Guidebook and see for yourself! We offer this accommodation exclusively to travelers -- no one lives in it full-time. Enjoy your own pied-à-terre in Brooklyn!

ABOUT OUR NEIGHBORHOOD: Flatbush is a bustling, working-class neighborhood known and loved for its diversity (residents are predominantly Caribbean, African American, and Latino/a), availability of public transit (we have access to three subway lines), and affordability. If you like exploring multicultural neighborhoods that are off the beaten path, you will find a lot here to stimulate you. On the other hand, if you feel uncomfortable in lively city environments, you might not enjoy it here. We find that our Stylish 1BR Retreat is appreciated the most by travelers who like an adventure or have a "been there, done that" attitude toward Manhattan. We are near multiple subway lines (Q, 2, and 5), which will get you almost anywhere you might like to go. But depending on your destination, it takes anywhere from 30 to 75 minutes to travel from our house to Manhattan via subway or bus. You can search CityMapper (a great website/app for transportation guidance) for commute times to NYC destinations from our nearest subway stops: Beverly Rd (2 and 5 trains) and Beverley Rd (Q train). Or, message us with your questions! We *always* give honest door-to-door estimates -- not just the time you'll spend on the train.

This urban retreat occupies the basement level of a 100-year-old brick townhouse owned and lived in by your hosts -- two professors who walk to work (our university campus is nearby).

The stylish LIVING ROOM features:
--> exposed brick, recessed lighting, mid-century modern decor
--> CB2 "Flex" sofa bed
--> 55-inch flatscreen "smart" TV with Netflix (free), Hulu (free), Amazon streaming video (for purchase), and more
--> DVD player and our small library of films and musicals
--> office nook with laser printer (bring your laptop)
--> our expansive collection of sci-fi novels, historical fiction, and travel/language books
--> WIFI throughout the apartment

The newly renovated KITCHENETTE with LAUNDRY includes:
--> undercounter refrigerator/freezer
--> 2-burner electric cooktop
--> microwave
--> 12-cup coffeemaker
--> toaster
--> all cooking equipment and essentials (spices, olive oil, vinegar)
--> petite dining area
--> compact Electrolux washer with steam
--> full-sized LG gas dryer with steam

BEDROOM features super-firm queen bed with 600 thread-count linens, full closet, plenty of shelves to store your stuff, and (in the summer) an air-conditioner. If you leave the bedroom door open, the air conditioner can cool the living room as well.

BATHROOM features tiled shower, a showerhead with five comfort settings, and new white bath linens.

PRIVATE BACKYARD features a patio, a table that seats four, and a Weber charcoal grill!

We want you to be comfortable and to have a great time! So, in case it matters to you, we think you should know:
* This is a basement suite. This means that the backyard and washer/dryer are yours to enjoy exclusively, but there are small windows in the bedroom and kitchenette only. To provide light and ventilation to the living room, we have installed a full-view glass storm door with a retractable insect screen at the basement entrance. Also, if you are tall, you will have to watch your head at times -- the ceilings in the suite range from 7 to 8 feet high (2.1-2.4 meters).
* Please note our house is located next to an auto-repair shop (typically open Mon-Sat 9am-7pm). Our block is an eclectic mix of businesses, century-old townhouses, and apartment buildings -- authentic Brooklyn.
* The kitchenette does not have an oven or dishwasher, but it does have almost everything else (cooktop, microwave, etc.) Plus, there is a charcoal grill/barbecue in the backyard!

A lively and diverse neighborhood populated by working families, Flatbush was highlighted last year by The New York Times as one of Brooklyn's up-and-coming areas: "Flatbush, Brooklyn, a Fit for Many Tastes and Budgets," 16 May 2015. We chose to make Flatbush our home because of its casual atmosphere, friendly neighbors, and proximity to trendy Cortelyou Road, which offers a plethora of restaurants, bars, cafes, and other amenities. Residents commute to Manhattan by subway or express bus. The neighborhood is bounded by Ditmas Park (west), Midwood (south), Lefferts-Gardens (north), and East Flatbush.

In 15 minutes or less, you can walk to:
--> Dozens of restaurants, bars, and cafes
--> A huge supermarket (5-minute walk) and two organic grocery stores (15-minute walk)
--> A farmer's market on Sundays
--> A yoga studio with massage and acupuncture practitioners on site
--> The spectacularly restored Kings Theatre (rock, jazz, reggae, theater, more)
--> Three gyms (Planet Fitness, 24-Hour Fitness, Retro Fitness)
--> Two outlet stores (Gap, Old Navy)
--> Brooklyn's landmarked art-deco Sears
--> Prospect Park, Brooklyn's version of Central Park (20-minute walk)
--> Smorgasburg, the celebrated weekly food festival featuring NYC's best artisanal vendors (in Prospect Park on Sundays during warm months)

Also, FORT GREENE is just 25 MINUTES BY SUBWAY. This fashionable Brooklyn neighborhood rivals Manhattan with its vibrant arts, entertainment, and dining scene. It is home to several theater, opera, and dance companies (Brooklyn Academy of Music, Mark Morris Dance Group, Polansky Shakespeare Center); a cinema offering first-run and art films (BAM Rose Cinemas); and a stadium where you can attend sports events, concerts, and other spectacles (Barclays Center). We spend a lot of our free time in Fort Greene!

From our townhouse, it's a short walk to the 2 or 5 at Beverly Rd (7 minutes) and the Q at Beverley Rd (12 minutes). These trains will take you to all five boroughs. For example, it is less than an hour to Madison Square Garden/Penn Station (45 minutes) and Times Square (50 minutes). These are truthful door-to-door estimates, not just the amount of time you'll be riding on the train.

Accès des voyageurs

Enjoy the backyard (patio furniture, charcoal grill) in spring and summer; wireless internet; 55-inch flatscreen "smart" TV with Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and more; washer/dryer for your exclusive use!

Échanges avec les voyageurs

The suite has its own entrance and is designed to give you privacy and independence during your stay. We live in the townhouse full time, right upstairs on the first floor with our dog Mabel, so we're available if you have questions. Because it is an old house, you will hear us and our dog from time to time, but we are working professionals with a quiet lifestyle. We look forward to welcoming you to our unique corner of Brooklyn!

Our house rules are pretty much common sense:
- No smoking (or tobacco products of any kind) indoors, please. Feel free to smoke in the front or back yards, however.
- We warmly welcome you—and only you—into our home. No gatherings or parties during your stay, please. When you decide to stay with us, you agree not to bring traveling companions or friends/guests into our home that are not part of your original reservation.
- Please take off your shoes inside. We provide slippers for your comfort!
- Please conserve energy. Turn off all lights, air conditioners, etc. whenever you leave the house.
- Please recycle. NYC has rigorous rules about garbage and recycling, and we will get fined by the city if we don't comply.
- Please do not allow strangers to enter the building—even if they claim to work for NYC or a utility company. This is for your safety and the safety of everyone in the house.
- We welcome quiet, well-behaved dogs if you seek approval in advance. Tell us a little about your canine companion when you message us!

L'appartement de Amy & Scott est tout à fait conforme à la description qu'ils en ont fait sur le site. Propre, bien agencé et très bien placé pour visiter et découvrir les petits trésors de Brooklyn. Le métro à quelques blocs seulement. Pour une première expérience Airbnb, je suis ravie ! Une bouteille de vin blanc nous attendait dans le frigo, des oeufs et du lait. Nous avions l'impression de venir loger chez des amis qui nous attendaient ! Jolie vaisselle. Cuisine équipée Lit confortable et le canapé lit aussi Amy & Scott ont pris le temps de rédiger un manuel spécialement pour faciliter l'hébergement à leurs hôtes avec notamment de bonnes adresses de restaurant et de bar que nous avons pu tester et qui méritent de s'y arrêter Il ne s'est pas passé un seul jour sans que Amy nous demande comment nous allions, si nous avions besoin de quelque chose en particulier et comment se passait notre séjour à NY. Nous communiquions via whastapp. Le contact a été très facile dès le début et jusqu'au taxi que Amy nous a commandé pour regagner JFK; un chauffeur privé, Randy, trop sympa ! Je recommande ce logement si vous choisissez de séjourner à Brooklyn

Amy nous a très bien accompagné dès la réservation jusqu'à notre arrivée et pendant le séjour. L'appartement est très bien aménagé et équipé. Il est situé dans un quartier typique de Brooklyn très bien desservi en métro sans aucun problème de sécurité. Nous avons pu profiter drs adresses de bars et restaurants communiquées par nos hôtes, d'une bouteille de vin à notre arrivée et nous avions même de quoi prendre un petit déjeuner. L'appartement est très calme. L'accès par une serrure automatique évite tout problème de clef. Super séjour.

My wife and I stayed at Amy and Scott's place for 3 weeks because we had just moved to the city and needed a "temporary" space until we found our permanent home. We can't say enough about Amy and Scott, they are really great hosts: very attentive to our needs, always available if a question arises, and really laid back and easy going. We had the pleasure of spending some time with Amy and Scott during our stay and are leaving this experience with two kind and thoughtful friends. In regards to the space, it is really warm and inviting. We were greeted with a bottle of wine and welcome card upon our arrival, which made us feel right at home! We loved the private entrance with key pad entry, so we didn't have to worry about carrying around keys. We also loved the proximity to grocery stores (1-2 blocks away) and metro stations, which made it easy to travel to nearby neighborhoods and even go into the city. Amy has created a very detailed house manual that explains the various transportation options and ideas about local entertainment and restaurants, which was super helpful as we navigated our way through a new city! Amy & Scott were also very accommodating to our furry friend, our Lhasa Apso, Teddy. They made a point to come down and meet Teddy and Amy even brought him some organic dog biscuits during our stay! They also let us enjoy a "puppy play date" during our stay so Teddy could meet Mabel, who is sweet and very friendly. If you are looking for a quiet and restorative place to escape the sounds of the city, we highly recommend that you stay with Amy & Scott!

Amy and Scott have been such an amazing host thus far! We have a really great time staying and their beautiful and cozy apartment. They had been extremely informative about how to get there, what's around the neighbourhood. It definitely was more than a place to stay as they provide a file of what things we could explore in Brooklyn in details, so we really make the most of our trip! Since my flight landed early they even accommodate us to check in early since there was nobody staying the night before. They really did amazing job to do their very best to accommodate us. The door is also a pin system so I we don't have to worry about losing keys which is a plus. Everything was an amazing experience!

Amy met us at the door and gave us a complete tour of the apartment, its many appliances and creature comforts . She also provided an orientation to the detailed user's guide she and Scott have developed, which includes operating instructions, a listing of several neighborhood amenities, and access to transportation. Her introduction also included personal favorite restaurants and nearby shopping venues. The apartment is well-heated in winter (our visit was in December), the bed very comfortable, and the kitchen perfect for light meal prep. In short, we lacked for nothing. We also found Brooklyn to be full of attractions, including the renowned Brooklyn Museum, to have a lively neighborhood spirit and to be and very accessible to Manhattan. We are very likely to return for another stay on Bedford Avenue.

Dear Amy and Scott, thank you so much of the surprise , we had a wonderful trip! We spent 11 nights here, they have everything for us. The house is comfortable and clean, it's so convenient that we can use washing machine and clothes dryer! They have everything we need in the kitchen, so that we can cook everyday. We also enjoy the movie with Netflix every night! Amy helped us a lot when we had any problems and questions! It's so safety even we are 2 girls walking around at night! We will miss the trip so much! Hope can see u both again when we come back!

Profil utilisateur de Amy & Scott

We are professors who teach in the City University of New York (CUNY) system; our house is located within walking distance of our campus. Although originally Amy came from California and Scott from Michigan, we have lived in New York City for more than 20 years -- most of that time in Brooklyn, the borough we love. When we're not teaching, we're usually traveling. We love cooking at home and we also seek out interesting local food and restaurants, both at home and elsewhere. We love theater, music, writing books, learning about wine, adventures to new places, and animals of all kinds.
