Come stay in our beautiful three story house literally opposite the Barclays center. Your bedroom is not only incredibly spacious but has it's own private living room, that can double up as a second bedroom if desired (we have a futon that folds down). The entire first floor is yours which also includes your own bathroom. Why not spread out a little in the city where space is such a rarity!

The space

Three story house with key code door access (so no keys needed!).

Downstairs there are two living rooms, a dining room and a kitchen that guests are welcome to use.
(Being an NYC kitchen, we prefer light use of it rather than big cook outs!)

I'm not exaggerating when I say the location simply cannot be beaten. Apart from being directly opposite the Barclays Center and all its attractions, we are right in the heart of the best of Brooklyn. Walking distance to all the nicest neighborhoods – Prospect Heights, Boerum Hill, Fort Greene, Park Slope, Clinton Hill and Downtown Brooklyn. Best of all we are just around the corner from Prospect Park which is glorious in the summer months!

There are 11 (yes 11!) subway options within a couple of minutes walk, so getting in and out of Manhattan cannot be easier. The LIRR is also very close, allowing you to travel to and from JFK (and further afield destinations) within no time at all.

Interaction with guests

My girlfriend and I occupy the top floor and we are quiet, considerate and very friendly. Having lived in the city for 12 years I know all the fun spots to go visit, and would love to make your stay in our wonderful city the most enjoyable it can be!

Other things to note

***Please be aware that Brookyn is always looking to improve itself so there is construction on our street. There is currently some scaffolding outside so not the prettiest view when approaching the house but we have double paned windows that keeps most the noise out.

Those guests who are keen to spend the day exploring wont be bothered by it as it is only during daytime hours and ends around 4pm. We have a fan and AC in the room which drowns out any of the occasional noises for those who like to sleep in!

Will and Kelsey were incredible hosts! The rooms we stayed in were large (not just for NYC standards), comfortable, and trendy, and the location was great! It was a very easy walk to the subway to get to manhattan and elsewhere in BK. They were also full of tips of things to do and see, and were incredibly gracious hosts. We will definitely stay with them again!

Our stay at the Will area left us with the best impressions.   Ease of traveling with the Metro. Whole floor available and kitchen and living room on the ground floor. Very safe area at any time of the day. Quiet in the evening even though the house is in a very central spot in Brooklyn. Kind and discreet presence of the host and his partner. We thank them for their hospitality.

Will was a super nice host, his house is really nice and close to Atlantic Avenue - the best spot to go to Manhattan or around in Brooklyn. We did enjoy Will’s suggestions for restaurants a lot as well and would definitely recommend staying there!

We stayed for 5 days/4 nights at Will and Kelsey's house. We checked in on Friday night and they were both incredibly kind and helpful with the move-in (took our luggage to our room while we found parking). There was construction on the street so parking adjacent to the house is impossible, but we found a garage only two blocks away (being from out of state we would rather not risk street parking anyways). The room was very clean, came furnished with everything in the pictures, and the bathroom space was perfect as well. The bedroom is incredibly spacious, and comes with a living room, although we were out and about 90 percent of the time so we did not utilize the living room, save for getting ready. They even left us a complimentary bottle of wine on the fireplace mantle :) The bathroom had plenty of towels and soap and some other nice little amenities The location literally could not have been better! Across the street from the Barclays Center (NY Islanders/Brooklyn Nets) we did not go to any games but ideal for fans from out of the area. The whole house has double paned windows so while there is heavy construction and the events outside, there was absolutely no noise from the outside which was nice. The front door has a electronic locking system which can be a little tricky at first but simple to get the hang of, although occasionally the door needed a good push to open. There was a very accessible common living room and kitchen as well but we did not use either one, and while Will was very busy, he stayed in constant communication with us making sure we had everything we needed and more. Kelsey spoke with us as we were packing to leave and made it clear that there was absolutely no rush and we could even leave our bags there if we wanted to explore more on our last day! Subway station (Q and B trains) was not even two blocks away, and the local restaurants/coffee shops/bars are within minutes of walking distance ( we recommend Broccolino and Beer and Burger Bar on Flatbush 10/10 experience as they were not only prepared and thorough, but also very kind and helpful and truly conscious of privacy . If we stay in Brooklyn again we will definitely choose Will and Kelsey's again. Do yourself a favor and book sooner rather than later!
