Overview

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!

Perfection

This met our needs perfectly. Our flight was delayed, and Ashley was very gracious as she greeted us in the middle of the night! Beautiful apartment with everything you need!

Roomy, comfortable apartment in a beautiful neighbourhood.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Ashley's apartment. It was very comfortable and exactly as depicted in the photographs. Easy to get to the MTA. The neighbourhood is leafy, beautiful and all the bars and restaurants in the area that we went to were friendly and served good food. We would happily stay here again.

brownstone walk up at bedford stuyvesant

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful 1 bedroom at Bedford Stuyvesant. The neighborhood is safe and close to the metro and restaurants. Our host Ashley was so accommodating and let us check in before the appointed time. The unit was very spacious and Ashley provided basic needs for her guests. We would stay here again. Thank you ashley for sharing your home.

The following would be a plus for us...cable to catch up on news and shelves in the bedroom closet.

Great Brooklyn apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is as advertised- clean, well-maintained one bedroom apartment in a very nice Brooklyn neighborhood. My daughter and I commuted into Manhattan every day for a week. The train is a 5 minute walk from the apartment (the A and C trains run express to Manhattan, including Times Square, from this stop) and there are great restaurants and small grocery stores within a couples of blocks- easy walk. This location offers free on street parking, which saved us a lot of money. We had no problem with our car being on the street for a week. The neighbors were very friendly and helpful. Ashley was so accommodating to our schedule. We'll definitely stay here again!!!

Clean and well-appointed. Ashley was very accommodating and friendly.

  • 4 of 5

The property is on a beautiful street and within walking distance to stores and the subway. The only downside was the air conditioner didn't work and the sleeper sofa was broken previously. However, the weather cooperated and Ashley provided plenty of air mattresses and bedding for everyone. We had a great stay!

Very clean studio

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 9 nights a few weeks ago. It was our first experience using Homeaway.com and we were glad to have some extra space with the bedroom, bathroom, living area and kitchenette. Although we didn't cook much, it was nice to have the fridge and microwave for instant coffee etc. Ashley allowed us to drop off our luggage mid morning, as we had an early flight, which was nice so we didn't have to cart it around with us while waiting to check in at 2 p.m. The place was older, but seemed very clean and we enjoyed some of the added touches such as DVD player with some movies to choose from, as well as enough towels and washcloths for the entire trip, which was convenient. Overall a good experience, near the subway so we were able to go into Manhattan during the day and come back to our place and relax at night. We enjoyed our trip to New York!
