Come stay in our comfy and cozy one-bedroom garden apartment near the subway in Bed-Stuy. Private backyard with a hammock, table, and chairs for outdoor drinks or dining, a private entrance, and competitive prices. Enjoy a full kitchen stocked with Nespresso and tea, a TempurPedic mattress, colorful art, and access to the all of a lively and exciting neighborhoods of Brooklyn. We also have a friendly (and lazy) cat who lives in the apartment. Update!! We have AC finally :)
Our kitchen has everything you need, including a Nespresso machine, a juice press, and lots of other cooking gadgets. Our backyard is private and has chairs and tables if you'd like to sit outside. The private entrance guarantees a quiet stay.
*we have a cat. He is extremely lazy and quiet and we have an automatic feeder so guests won't have to worry about him except to make sure he doesn't escape. ;-)
You'll have access to all of our cooking equipment, a pop up tempurpedic cot for extra guests, TV, and stereo system (we don't have cable, but we have high speed WiFi). We also have classic Nintendo and Wii if you need a break from NYC!
If we are in town, we will meet you and give you keys, but the space will be all yours. If we are traveling ourselves, friends or neighbors will be present to check you in.
Bed-Stuy is a bustling residential neighborhood with lots of diverse cultures. It's a growing neighborhood, with new bars and restaurants popping up every week. Our favorite local spots are Peaches Hothouse, Dynaco, Black Swan, BedVyne Brew, and Miss Dahlia's Cafe. We'll leave listings of other great spots. You're also a short bus or subway ride to Williamsburg, Manhattan, or Queens.
There is a bus right outside the apartment that takes you directly to the base of the Brooklyn Bridge in Downtown Brooklyn. We're also 4 blocks from the C train.
Full kitchen, backyard, Nespresso machine, bathroom amenities (towels, shampoo, conditioner, hairdryer, etc.). We also have a twin-sized cot bed for extra guests.
We often won't be present for our guests' stays. We will leave keys with close friends who will provide any information necessary. We'll also leave a house manual with directions to local attractions and favorite restaurants.
Let us know if you have any special needs so we can try to accommodate.
Please leave the space as you found it - we welcome you to use the kitchen, but please take out your trash and leave it in the front. NO pets. Smoking allowed ONLY in the back yard (please don't leave butts in our garden!)
My partner and I work in education in New York City.
We are adventurous, spontaneous, social, and love to travel. We prefer to get to know our destinations by living with others and exploring, rather than bouncing around from one tourist attraction to another. We also really like beer :-) As hosts, we like to provide little extras to make the apartment feel like home! It's a place we love to live (in fact, we got married in the back yard!)
