Welcome to the “Island Style” Garden Suite. Our apartment is cool and modern and covers the entire ground floor. Details: two bedroom/two bath, backyard, on a tree-lined block in the hottest neighborhood in Brooklyn - Bed Stuy. It's filled with modern custom furnishings, curated art, and bedroom backyard access. It’s a great space for singles, couples, and families who want an authentic BK experience, with outdoor space to entertain when they are not out and about.

The space

When you arrive you can’t miss us, the house has a turquoise front door, representative of the waters of the Caribbean. The apartment has its own private entrance on the ground level, a modern full kitchen, living/dining area, two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, washer/dryer and a backyard. Each furnishing was hand selected by a well known local interior designer and many of the pieces are from my company’s curated wallpaper & carpet collection. Because I’m a creative, I pay attention to every detail from making sure the sheets are ironed, displaying artwork that inspires you, and making soft fluffy towels available (I can’t help it; I’m a designer).

By subway, you will have easy access to Manhattan (20 mins) and many other popular neighborhoods that include Williamsburg, Clinton Hill, Crown Heights and Fort Greene.

The home comfortably sleeps four adults in two bedrooms. The space includes everything you’ll need to be comfortable: fresh clean linens, towels, cookware, dishes, utensils, an iron, smart TV and free wi-fi. One bedroom has a full bed and the other has a queen bed.

You are invited to survey the world through Brooklyn, experience the “Island Style” garden suite in the heart of Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the entire apartment on the garden level.

Interaction with guests

I like to give my guest space but I'm available via the Airbnb app or a (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) text.

Other things to note

What an amazing stay! Malenes apartment is perfect, very spacious with a sizeable living space and two good size bedrooms and bathrooms. The apartment was conveniently located with the A and C lines within walking distance. There was also some lovely cafes, restaurants and bars nearby. Malene was a great host and was easy to communicate with if necessary. Would definitely recommend!

Excellent communication and clean place with everything in good order. We didn't love the location as we found that any place to eat or get coffee required a Lyft or subway ride.

Response from Malene:
Sorry you we're not able to experience the neighborhood in a delightful way. We love it because of the easy access to places to eat etc...There are plenty of nice restaurants and cafes within walking distance to the house. They are listed in our guidebook. Plus we have at least five coffee shops within one to three blocks from the house. There are two coffee shops right at the corner, a bakery/coffee shop one block away, plus many other cute cafes nearby. I would have been happy to direct you, but I was not informed during your stay. Thanks for the feedback and for stay.

Besides having a home furnishing brand that inspires people to connect to our global community; I’m a world traveler, carpet designer, entrepreneur, and people connector. I’ve visited over 25 countries and when I travel my experience is always like a local. I understand the importance of having a knowledgeable host to connect with who can help you learn about the best places to visit and places to eat (I’m a vegetarian; so, for all of my vegetarian guests, I got you). I can provide advice about where you need to go during the day before returning to a clean and comfortable environment to rest after a long day.
