You will love my place because it’s airy and big, it's actually two rooms joined in one. vibrant neighborhood & restaurant culture. Perfect if you are looking for a Brooklyn experience, for curious souls and working professionals who come here for work and want a laid back experience. You will love the location, no need to walk to the subway, the L train is right on the corner, easy to get to Manhattan.
And also, my apartment is 420 friendly

The space

I’m offering a large, airy and sunny space in a classic Brooklyn ‘rail-road style’ apartment, which means, a rather long apartment with two separate entrances at both ends.
The space is 420 friendly, and shared with me, one female host who has no pets, no children and no other roommates.
This is a secure and chill building, with only two apartments per floor, with like-minded tenants who have lived in the building for many years like myself. The apartment is on the fourth (top) floor. It’s a walkup, with three flights of stairs.
There is a queen sized bed, a twin-size sleeping-cot for one person, and also there's a queen-size air-mattress available.
You have your own closet space in the room.
Your space consists of two attached large rooms, big enough to eat there too: it’s equipped with a breakfast/dining/work table with two chairs, a mini-fridge, electric kettle, coffee machine and toaster.
Both our spaces are located at opposite ends of the apartment. Each has their own separate entrance, allowing for privacy, and for easy access to the shared bathroom and main kitchen-dining area, which are shared, and you have to access it through the main hallway. If I'm not in my room, you are welcome to walk through it, but if I am, I prefer you use the main hallway.

Interaction with guests

I work from home most days. I am here to answer any questions you have and will gladly interact with you, but I will be out of your way and doing my own thing at my side of the apartment, unless you need something. Having had said that, I’m also open to share from time to time, be it during a meal or cooking. I sometimes bake gluten free stuff. The celiac thing isn’t a big deal, please feel free to cook whenever you want to. The kitchen is ready and equipped for you. I am not vegan or vegetarian, but you can be, and again, prepare whatever you please.

Other things to note

-I’m flexible with check-in/check-out, however check in time is 3pm and check out is noon, so do let me know in advance so to best accommodate you.
-I provide toiletries -shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper, and soap, towels and sheets, and also tea and coffee
-Please note I will expect a replacement if you accidentally break anything and-or stain towels / sheets
-I personally do not get bothered with the heat during the summer. My apartment does not have central air conditioning. There is however an AC unit in your room that you are welcome to use, however, please keep it on the low and not 24/7.
-although the space is 420 friendly, please avoid smoking tobacco inside, you can smoke and chill at the stoop
-Absolutely no hard drugs

-Please be responsible and treat the space with respect
-No overnight guests or additional guests

Lita was a perfect host. Very straightforward and accommodating. She was a wonderful conversationalist, intent on making us feel comfortable. Her place is absolutely adorable and spotless, too. The room we stayed in had so much character with well loved books, knick-knacks, textiles-- a great place to rest after a long evening. As this is my first experience with air bnb, I was worried about feeling unsettled but it was quite the opposite. Thank you for everything, Lita! We hope to be back.

Wasn't sure how NYC would make me feel, being from the west cost.. but being at this flat, in this neighborhood made the trip unique. It felt like highland park in LA. Thank you for great stay!

Lita was a very friendly host, with straightforward explanations of her home and how things worked. The room was huge, and very easy to get to; as it was my first time not going to Manhattan when in NYC, I found it convenient to walk to all the places in Brooklyn I was going. Her place was clean and well kept, and the bed was very comfortable. She made me coffee one morning, which was very welcome.

Lita was very welcoming and friendly during our visit. Always offering suggestions on local sights, restaurants and points of interest. Her place was so conveniently located that it made travel around Brooklyn and to Manhattan amazingly easy for visitors like us with no city experience. The subway for the L train is literally steps from her door. Her place was clean and well kept. She was very patient with our late hours (we were in town for several concerts in Manhattan, which meant us returning late at nights). She was kind to offer coffee and breakfast several times to make us feel at home. The neighborhood has some great restaurants and bars and is very safe (even late night). I would definitely recommend staying with Lita for an authentic Brooklyn experience.

Lita's place is a big and comfortable place to stay if your keen to explore the hip NYC areas in Brooklyn! The flat was very clean and very close to public transport. Some very good coffee and food places are just around the corner. Lita is a very welcoming host, always making sure you have everything you need. She will leave you your space if wanted but also is very fun to talk to! Many stories she can tell.. Thank you for making us feel home in this busy city!

Lita was kind and lovely! She offered coffee in the morning and her apartment is very beautiful. Warning: there are three flights of stairs!! It was a workout getting up to the apartment but the place is lovely, and very 420 friendly.

Easy going, Brooklyn loving... Hello! My name is Lita. I’m originally from Chile, and moved to NYC a good while ago. I often travel and being a part of the Airbnb community has made everything friendlier and easier, both as a host and as a guest. I am an artist, an editor…
