About the Homestay
Hola! Welcome to our little world of magic and happiness! Really ... while the rest of the world is in chaos, my partner Conrad and I, along with our 7 year old daughter focus on staying positive and making all of our dreams come true. Renovating this 19th Century Victorian Townhouse and having YOU as our guest is one of them!! We are both artists - I am a visual artist, painter, illustrator and designer. Conrad is a dancer, historian, nightlife promoter and he also works in stage production. We KNOW this city inside and out! We are happy to share our home with you and are happy to welcome you to THE PLANET aka Brooklyn!
Rooms and House:
Relax at one of our private room on the first floor of our newly renovated 19th Century Townhouse. Super clean and thoughtfully decorated, the rooms boosts a new mattresses and fresh linens. The house is bright and peaceful with a shared full bath on the same floor. Clean towels and linens are provided for all guests and changed weekly during long-term stays. My family and I occupy the 2nd floor and are available for as much (or as little) interaction as desired.
