About Krista Kujat

Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, I moved to NY in 2000 to pursue my passion for acting in film & theatre. I fell in love with Brooklyn, and I dreamt of one day owning a brownstone. That dream became a reality 5 years later. I'm an avid world traveller & always appreciate staying in non-toursity, local neighborhoods, so it gives me a lot of joy to create a space for visitors to discover, enjoy the soul of my neighborhood. Several films have since been shot at this location, and I still get requests for film shoots here. Come experience the charm & write your own adventure in Brooklyn!

Krista Kujat purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Krista Kujat chose Brooklyn

I love the charm of old brownstones, and this particular building had the rare details in tact, stained glass windows, gorgeous wood details that are often destroyed when buildings are renovated. The location, just a 5 minute walk from the subway was also a no-brainer!

What makes this apartment unique

Gorgeous pre-war details, 14 foot ceilings, old world charm.... hipster neighborhood... just a 5 minute walk to the subway!

Beautiful Brooklyn Brownstone!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely historic brownstone in the heart of Brooklyn! Our family of 3 loved this apartment. It has a good layout, is very spacious with beautiful high ceilings, hardwood floors and natural woodwork throughout. A true gem! The apartment is also very well appointed with all required amenities at hand. The home made banana bread and fresh orange juice on our arrival were greatly appreciated! Evenings in Krista's Parlor Suite were also very relaxing after long days of sight seeing. We felt at home!

The location is fantastic! Subway access, shopping , dining and numerous local activities are all reachable by foot. Though I do suggest purchasing a 31$ weekly subway ticket when staying a week or more. Crown Heights itself is also a beautiful area. There are many local sights well worth visiting! I highly recommend The Brooklyn Botanical Gardens for pleasant morning or evening strolls.

Our host Krista was always available with quick answers to questions or friendly advice.

All said, we had a wonderful stay in Brooklyn and look forward to returning! Thank You Krista!

The apartment is very pleasant to return to after a day in New York.

The connections with the Subway are convenient.

The neighbourhood has good shops and restaurants.

We could actually park our car just in front of the house.

Great apartment in a charming area!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beautiful brownstone. The apartment had everything we wished for and suited us, a family of four, perfectly. Everything is clean and tidy and there are fans in every room which we appreciated this very hot week in June. Also, Crown Heights is a charming part of Brooklyn and the subway just a short walk away. Krista is easy to communicate with and answers quickly if you need to ask anything. We can highly recommend this apartment!

Spacious Brooklyn Brownstone Parlor Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully appointed apartment, parlor floor of a Brooklyn Brownstone, easy walk to subway, 24 hour laundrymat at end of street with drop off service , several neighborhood grocery stores close by. Water pressure in shower was very good, gas stove with oven, full refrigerator with top freezer, microwave, plus all other items needed to cook meals. The living room has a couch and a love seat, both very comfortable. The original woodwork has been retained and is in excellent condition, beautiful parlor mirror , door frames and ceiling plaster work. Plenty of space for enjoying each other's company plus privacy if needed. My party was 2 adult sisters with 2 children . We had a great week in NYC partly contributed to having a very comfortable place to stay. I highly recommend, we will reserve again when next in the city. Krista was the perfect host, available if needed, which we did not.
