Our clean, comfy duplex has quick access to Prospect Park, the beach & city--try the best jerk chicken in BK & be in Manhattan in 20 minutes! This up-and-coming area has a mix of folks from the Caribbean islands & young professionals & maintains a "real Brooklyn" vibe. It's the last area on the park to remain so culturally diverse. It's unpolished & full of Jamaican restaurants, delis & dollar stores, with cute bars and cafes popping up slowly. We love the diversity, the park & express Q train!
PLEASE UNDERSTAND-- We do not accept NY residents as Instant Book guests, it is only for out-of-state and International guests. If you are a NY resident, please first send us a note, with info about yourself and your visit.
Please remove shoes (with NYC grime!) upon entering. Always lock the deadbolt on the front door. During quiet hours (mornings before 9am and evenings after 11pm) please keep your voices down, it is essential all guests get the rest they need. Please note that it may be lively in the common spaces until 11pm, as this is a large household. Be respectful, tidy and communicate your needs. We will do the same :)
We are roommates Gina, Sadiya, Carlos and Vlada and between the four of us we have lots of languages covered :)
Gina (English, Spanish): Welcome, we are thrilled you are here!! I am a Massage Therapist, Colon Hydrotherapist and Yoga Teacher (ExhaleHealingArts). I commute to work via the handmade Bamboo Bicycle I built. I am active--swimming, traveling, hiking, music, you name it! I moved to NYC after living in Rincon, Puerto Rico (10 yrs!) where I surfed, worked and built an Earthdome on my 5-acre property. I'm in-and-out of the apartment a lot, but the others are always around.
