About the Homestay
Hi! We're a middle age couple with no pets and children away at school. We live in a beautifully renovated duplex with 3 bd/4 bths and private backyard. We provide luxurious, super clean, 5-star, hotel-like accommodations with elegant decor & art, no clutter, and terrific amenities. Leave your wireless speaker (you can have Sonos in your room,) bathrobe and toiletries at home! You have a private bathroom, full use of kitchen, laundry facilities and more. We provide all of the breakfast foods you can imagine as well as a variety of coffees, teas, seltzers, waters, and snacks. Your room has central A/C and heat, high speed internet, a TV, Roku, and Netflix. It's a great neighborhood ideally located on an express subway that gets you to Manhattan in 20 minutes. I'm an entrepreneur in the technology business and my husband is an investment banker. We're warm and loving people with a truly inviting home. We're demanding travelers ourselves, so we aim to provide an experience that rivals hotels at 5x the price. We welcome those who want to enjoy all this city has to offer and those who consider a beautiful accommodation an important part of a great experience. Note: Calendar may not always be up to the minute but is updated often. We are enjoying all of the wonderful people we are meeting and hope to have you as our guests soon.

About the Area
Our house is on what is considered the "greenist" blocks in all of Brooklyn. It's also very quiet. Everyone says "hi" here and everyone knows their neighbors. It's quiet and safe. The express subway is a 5-minute walk which is 15 minutes to downtown Manhattan and Greenwich village or 20-30 minutes midtown. Local bus, right on the block, will take you to downtown Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Bridge in 20 minutes. Or, grab a Citibike or use ours. The bike lanes are plentiful and well-used and drivers have a respect for that lane.

We were like home.Connie was just great in every detail;wonderful personality, really nice and clean house. Location is just perfect.We are recommending and we will for sure come back.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Can not fault our home stay experience with with Connie. She is a very attentive hostess. We were warmly welcomed and everything we could possibly need was catered for in this lovely, comfortable home. Connie has thought of everything! Spacious, quiet, and so convenient to transport and shops too. Highly recommend :) Thank you Connie and Roy.
Cornelia and Roy were exceptional hosts! I will happily recommend them to all of my friends and family who wish to visit NYC. The home was beautiful, clean, well stocked with snacks and breakfast foods and very close to local trains leading into Manhatten. All things I greatly appreciate. Truly, you went above and beyond to make me. Thank you both for everything.
Connie and Roy are a delightful couple who worked hard to ensure that our stay was a real success. The Garden Room that we stayed in was furnished with real taste and style, with every comfort provided. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome - it was like staying with friends.
What delightful hosts! Super helpful.
Our check in was easy. Their homestay location is an easy walk to the MTA. Cornelia and Roy have thought of everything!!!
Extra amenities, fluffy towels, well-appointed private bathrooms and bedrooms. Beds are super comfortable. Great selection of breakfast items and snacks. There is w/d for use, too. Nice patio out back for relaxing. Super secure and we had a key to come and go as our travel plans allowed.
My best friend and I are planning a return trip to NYC for next year and we definitely are staying here. Thanks again, Cornelia and Roy. It was wonderful!
Truly lovely hosts, well appointed and comfortable room and private bathroom. No hesitation in recommending this homestay!
