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. IF YOU USE THE AUTO REQUEST FOR A STAY, PLEASE ADD/TELL US MORE ABOUT YOU AND THE REASON FOR YOUR TRAVELS. Thank you!

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.

    Beautiful, comfortable home with many little luxuries. Easy fast journey into the heart of New York. Hosts who want to go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay. Recommend very highly. Would definitely stay here again next time we are in New York.

    Excellent accueil de la part de nos hôtes. Ils étaient très à l’écoute et disponibles pour notre bien être. Les discussions et les moments de détente avec eux font partie des bons moments de notre séjour à Brooklyn.
    Il était très agréable, après une longue journée de visite, de retrouver le calme de cette jolie maison où nous nous sommes tout de suite bien sentis.
    Le quartier est sympathique et vivant.

    Cornelia 's eyes are on you.. she is checking what you are doing every couple hours. We re been
    disturbed so much. But her husband is very helpful and host.

    Hi Ibrahim, I became more watchful after you changed your baby's diaper on my sofa with no pad/towel or lining. I guess we're not the best hosts to guests who have babies. Even if we are showered, we don't sit on our sofa with a bare tush.

    Connie & Roy made us feel totally at home in their fabulous house. Perfect place to get back to after a days sightseeing - better than any 5* hotel! Thanks for being such great company. Hope we get to meet again.

    A very friendly Homestay with excellent accommodation and hosts that went out of their way to help us, providing recommendations for local restaurants and help with getting around. We could come and go as we chose and indulge ourselves on the breakfast goodies and snacks. We had some great conversations with Connie and Roy and would have liked to stay longer.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?
