About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

This spacious apartment is the epitome of both quintessential and modern Brooklyn living. It is located in the culturally diverse and historic Stuyvestant Heights area on a landmarked block. The homes on this quiet, tree lined street boast anterior gardens displaying rose bushes, hydrangea and other plants that flourish in the Northeast. The apartment is situated on the third floor of a nearly 150 year old renovated brownstone. Two skylights add to the open and spacious floor plan, saturating the space with natural light. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and is equipped for cooking. The living room and bedroom have separate closets and entry doors for privacy and convenience during your stay. The bedroom is spacious and has a gently sloping ceiling, therefore it is recommended that guests over 6'2' use the sofa bed. The mid century furniture was carefully chosen to present a clean, unique environment. Paintings and photos in the space were made by local artists.

OWNER OCCUPIED : This is as close to a bed and breakfast as you can get without the added cost. Unlike most vacation rentals, the owner lives in the building. Check in/out at any hour is never a problem. A New Yorker is downstairs, at your disposal for tourist information and any questions that may arise during your stay. This is a non smoking building.

PLEASE NOTE: The apartment is on the third floor so you will be walking up the stoop (stairs leading into the house, pictured below) and then two flights of stairs inside. There is NO elevator so pack accordingly.

About Owner/Manager

I work in Brooklyn real estate and I enjoy getting to know people from all over the world. I feel fortunate to be able to share my beautiful home & neighborhood with my guests. I particularly love that my daughter Ruby, at age 6, is able to meet so many interesting people. She gets very excited when new guests arrive and often presents them with a drawling or shows them a new dance she has learned.

Owner/Manager purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Owner/Manager chose Brooklyn

As a Southern transplant, I knew I wanted to make our home in a neighborhood with a strong sense of community, an interesting history and a culturally diverse population. Our home was built in 1864, it is located on one of the loveliest blocks in the area. Inside the apartment you will find unique furnishings I've collected over the years and photos given to me by friends in the NYC artist community.

What makes this apartment unique

A trip to New York should be pleasantly unforgettable. With my guidance, I can save my guests time, money and I hope make the experience less intimidating. Since I live in the building traveling stress is decreased - I personally welcome my guests upon arrival and make myself available for any questions.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've had a really great stay in NY and who knows, we might visit again someday. It is a great place you have here!

Perfect apt, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at this property. Our flight arrived really early and Ashley let us drop our bags off and even took them upstairs for us when the apartment was ready. Everything looked like the pictures and we had more than enough room for 3 adults and 2 kids. The brownstone is in a very safe neighborhood right near the A train. It was also perfect for us because we could walk 10 minutes to visit with family. Ashley was very responsive and really provided everything we needed, even a booster seat for my daughter. If you are considering staying it now! I can't wait to return!
