Our luxury Brooklyn apartment has recently been renovated with stainless steel appliances, imported tiling, and thoughtful touches throughout the space. It's a huge duplex over 2 floors, with a living room and full bathroom on each floor. There are in total 5 bedrooms. I live in one full time and have a couple of permanent roommates. The other bedrooms are let out on places like Homestay. Most of us keep to ourselves so it's a quiet, peaceful environment.

There is a coin-operated washer and dryer for your use in the basement. We have a huge backyard you can hang out in with lots of seating. The apartment also has an instant hot & cold drinking water filter; great for teas and coffees in the morning. I provide cereals, K-cup coffees, oatmeal, and eggs for our homestayers.

The bedrooms are thoughtfully decorated and arranged. There is a queen bed with a comfortable memory foam mattress, dresser for your clothes, and a full-sized closet. I try my best to have my space designed in a convenient and thoughtful way -- let me know if you think anything is missing. You are welcome to use the kitchen and living room (has a TV with local channels and Chromecast).

Nearby we have the JMZ subway at the Myrtle Ave stop, just a 3 minute walk away. There are many conveniences in the neighborhood: a nice coffee shop (Little Skips), fresh fruit and vegetable sellers, a pizza place, drugstore, and many bodegas that serve quick sandwiches and salads, not to mention tons of options if you want food delivery.

Transit time to downtown Manhattan / Chinatown is just 15-20 minutes (J line) and about 30 minutes for midtown directly from the M line. From the J and M you have many other options to transfer to other subway lines for getting all over NYC and Manhattan.

I prefer to host stays of 1 month or longer in the winter months and am flexible during the rest of the year. Please contact me if you're interested or have any other questions regarding the space.

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.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). 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?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
