The second floor of a newly built home is available for up to 8 people to sleep, cook, play and relax during your visit to New York City. 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a fully equip kitchen with dining counter and a sprawling living area awaits you in this oasis in the Bushwick neighborhood in Brooklyn. The apartment is modern, great for groups and is family friendly.
WIFI internet is fast and free all the time. Play Xbox games on a wide screen TV, board games and enjoy complimentary coffee and tea each morning. Infant crib and play pen available. Access to a washer, dryer helps to make you feel at home.
Bushwick is an up and coming neighborhood in Brooklyn and Granite St in particular is full of friendly people and families with children. There is a community garden across the street from the house. Not much of a nightlife by the house but it is just a few train stops away from hip and trendy Williamsburg and Morgantown. C-Town supermarket is nearby and dozens of restaurants in the area deliver fresh and cheap food quickly.
The L and J trains are just 2-3 blocks away for Manhattan's Union Square in 20 mins or Soho and Chinatown in 25 mins. The A and C trains is a quick 7 min walk from the house for downtown Brooklyn, the Barclay Center and JFK airport.
A separate guestoom is optional (fees apply and based on availibility) may be available to add real beds to the sleeping arrangments of large groups. The separate guestroom is on the lower level, and features two full sized beds good for up to 4 more adults, a private bathroom with shower, a minifridge amd microwave.
My husband Lavondo and I love to host but also will respect your privacy. The apartment comes with its own private entrance so you can come and go as you please without disturbing a soul.
Hosts are Ingrid (mom and office worker in Midtown), Lavondo (dad and musician), and Zinn (4 year old boy). Lavondo is from Akron OH and I am from the Philippines. We met while working on passenger cruise liners traveling the world. A couple of years ago, we decided to settle in Brooklyn and start a family. We love to host but will also respect your privacy.
Ingrid Thomas purchased this apartment in 2011
This apartment is part of a two family building that was built very recently, in 2010. As a 'new build' all the fixtures, electric, plumbing, major appliances etc are like new and have been well taken care of since we purchased the property in 2011.
The property can sleep up to 12 in real beds when opting to rent the separate guestroom (shown in photos) along with this listing which on it's own sleeps 8 in real beds. Use of the separate guestroom adds $60 to $80 per night to the base rate of this listing, depending on the number of guests. The guestroom usually needs to be booked far in advance due to high demand.
I've stayed at my share of wonderful airbnb/homeaway houses. This was BY FAR the best. For the 10 of us meeting up from Australia, Brazil, Poland, Amsterdam and the US, we got more than we asked for! Ingrid was a wonderful host! The kitchen was beautiful! The pictures don't do this apartment any justice. From the shops for wonderful food in walking distance, to catching the L train daily and nightly to see the sights of NYC was all an adventure! I appreciate Ingrid for allowing us to stay, and now anywhere else I go will have to live up to Ingrid's professionalism and wonderful home! We didn't use the outside but we wanted to! We had so much fun cooking and singing karaoke that we were unable to enjoy the back yard. When we invited some friends over to get dinner, Ingrid didn't complain a bit, and we truly appreciate it.I'm from NY and this was by far the best time I've ever had visiting... Largely due to Ingrid's hospitality! Thank you for everything! Look forward to staying again!
Traveled with a group of 10 people. Found the accommodations to be very clean and comfortable. Our hostess, Ingrid, was very sweet and welcoming. Subway terminals are a close walk away. You can't beat the price for what is provided. Book it!
Easy to find, clean, comfortable and was able to adequately sleep all 9 of us
Ingrid and mother made our stay enjoyable and next time in New York we would definitely stay again
Plenty of easy food nearby with grocery shops Less than a 5 minute walk away
Thanks Ingrid for this opportunity
Brian, Kris and family
Thank you for the nice days, we felt very comfortable / Danke für die schönen Tage , wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
Everything was prepared and we did not miss anything / Es war alles vorbereitet und es hat uns nichts gefehlt.
We had only 200 to 300 m to the next Metro Station / Die Nähe zu den öffentlichen Verkehrmittel ist perfekt.
Should we once again travel to New York, we would want to live at Ingrid`s Apartment again / Sollten wir noch einmal nach New York reisen, würden wir wieder bei Ingrid wohnen wollen.
Fantastic, lovely house. Will look to stay here again next time we are this way
As you arrive you can't miss it. One of the newest buildings on the block.
It was the perfect place to stay with friends. We were a group meeting in New York coming from Puerto Rico, Florida, and Texas. The place was accesible , spacious, beautifully maintained, scrupulously clean and nicely decorated. (Murals add a special touch!)
The location has fast access to the city (20 min. in rush hour!). Access to the L and J trains was close and accesible. Although some parts of the neighborhood may look a little run down, most of it is under renovation and the city is taking care of infrastructure making it a very nice area. We always ( even when coming back late at night) felt safe. Just like coming back home.
Ingrid and her family made us feel welcome and were always accesible to help meet our needs at all times.
I will definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives, in fact I already have.
Although we mostly dined in the city or cooked in, don't forget to try the pizza at Arturo's. Just by the entrance of the J train Chauncey St. Station.
