Guest access

You will have private street and garden access. The entire suite is yours and is private.

Interaction with guests

We will leave you tons of recommendations about where we love to eat nearby and what we love to do. We are also available if you have any questions about our exciting city! We will do our best to meet you for check in though we do have, for your convenience, a keyless entrance lock.

We live upstairs, separate from the Airbnb suite, and you will have complete privacy. That being said, we are available any time if you have any questions!

Other things to note

Please note that while we are a quiet, empty-nesting couple and we don’t wake up ridiculously early or stay up crazy late, you may hear us above—the house is a Civil War era building and some noises are part of the history.

Though we do live on a relatively quiet, residential street, we do live in an urban area and cannot control incidental street noise. The main back bedroom is off the street and is very quiet.

Also, we are a pet-free home for those who are allergy-sensitive.

Kim's place is very, very convenient to stay, but on a nice and residential street. Lots of bakeries, cafes, bars, and good restaurants around. The place itself is very cozy with a nice back patio, and some really cute personal touches (like granola and french press coffee). Easy communication and would definitely recommend to others. Thanks Kim!

Great digs, great location and great hosts. Kim is the consummate host - always available to help when asked but never intrusive. The apartment is clean and welcoming and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone visiting NYC. Jan.

This space is perfect for a weekend in NYC - it’s close to the subway to be able to get into Manhattan, and also close to some great little restaurants and bars so you don’t feel the need to. The space is small, but cozy, and the back patio space is an amazing oasis in the city. Would definitely stay here again.

We liked everything about the apartment: location is convenient to A/C train, it's close to restaurants and shops on Fulton St and into Clinton Hill, it's clean (looks recently renovated) and tastefully decorated and has all the essentials for travellers There is a nice private garden in the back, perfect for relaxing after a day exploring Brooklyn and other parts of the City. Communication with Kim was clear and prompt. Highly recommend!

Even though our flight was delayed until late in the evening, Kim greeted us personally and made sure we had everything we needed, Super clean and the bed was comfy. GReat neighbourhood, Just steps to several great restaurants and the subway.

My husband and I are avid members of the Airbnb community! We have stayed in places all over the country and abroad as guests and have a mental checklist of what makes an Airbnb great (and we've had many many great experiences!). We're delighted to put that knowledge to good use …
