My place is close to the subway, Trader Joe's, BAM, Brooklyn Bridge Park. You’ll love my place because of the location. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers. The apartment is a shared space with 2 (sometimes 3) other male tenants.
We are renting out our bedroom in lieu of subletting while my girlfriend is away for the summer on a job. Our apartment is a large 3 bedroom apartment in Brooklyn's Cobble Hill neighborhood. We are the only live-in tenants in our building, the rest of the space is commercial. You COULD pay for a hotel in New York and spend upwards of $300/night, and yeah, you'll get the "hotel experience." But why not spend considerably less and get a space that has a full kitchen and living room, and that's close to attractions in Brooklyn and Manhattan?
You'll have access to the bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom. Basically any space that isn't someone else's bedroom. All common areas are shared by tenants and guests.
I will still be around when guests are staying because I often work from my home office, and will also sleep there in a pinch so any questions or concerns can be addressed quickly.
This is a shared space, so keep that in mind because it will be a little more like a hostel than a hotel. Your room is absolutely private, but you will share the common rooms with myself and 2 other live-in tenants. We are all males in our early-mid 30s. Our schedules all vary, so you may or may not see us depending on when you're around.
We can only accommodate up to 2 travelers at one time. No children under 18 allowed, even if accompanied by a guardian. Please feel free to use glassware, cookware, and dishes in kitchen, but be courteous and clean up after yourself. Please try to be mindful of noise level after 11 PM (especially on weeknights) as there may be others trying to sleep. Please make sure to shut off lights, fans, and air conditioners before leaving the apartment. Please lock the door when leaving.
Raina and I are avid travelers who believe that the people you meet and spend time with while traveling are just as important as the sights you see. We've been both members of the CouchSurfing community for many years, and have hosted and been hosted all over the world. We're happiest when eating good food, drinking good wine, and sharing conversations with good people.
