This is a home I share, not a dirt-cheap super clean hotel:) Welcome to my West Indian household!

The space
This is a shared space with myself, a cat, and other airbnb guests. I live in a historic district a block from Prospect Park. The apartment is a large, 3 bedroom with most anything you may need during your trip. Each room is large and has a desk. I have a cat even though I am allergic, but no one has ever had a reaction to her. I keep the place super clean using natural oils and steam. Each room has a bed for 2 and a thrid person can sleep on the couch or blow up mattress in the living room.

My motto is No one's actions should impede the enjoyment of another!
There are little notes around to help guests.

I enjoy being hospitable & welcome those that truly want the home vibe.
Those that know the difference between a host and hotel concierge are a def plus! I love my residential hood with plenty of island flavor and historic homes and sights nearby! I rent two rooms and take every precaution to assure each guest has a wonderful stay.

I'd describe myself as emotionally intelligent , high energy and sarcastic.
I've mostly hosted Europeans - its an opportunity to learn about other cultures or reminisce about my times traveling & living in Europe.
No guest has ever felt unsafe coming home at any hour using the subway.

Any other questions just ask. I want to make sure you have the best stay possible.

Guest access
Kitchen & Bathroom are shared!
Extra toiletries in case you forgot something.

Other things to note
Apt is on the 4th floor of a walkup. There is no elevator.

Location

Brooklyn, New York, United States

When I moved back to this country, I wanted to feel like I was someplace other than NYC - this is a perfect escape from the hustle of city life! Its a mostly Caribbean hood but its very mixed, both ethnically and economically!
A handful of local bars, plenty of amazing food options, grocery store across the street.

Prospect Park is at the end of my block, Grand Army Plaza, The Brooklyn Museum, and Botanic Gardens are all a 20 min walk away! The city is 5 stops away!!!!

I'm an energetic neat freak:) I call myself a Germaican - I'm Jamaican with a love of punctuality and direct communication; which Germans are known for! My profile picture is actually from a trip to Muenchen. I have worked in entertainment since 1984, and currently, I work from home. I am always around to help guests. I live to travel and have subleased to international travelers since 2007! I couch-surfed all over Europe back in 2006 - 2007 so when I moved back to NYC I knew I wanted to sublease to people from abroad. Anyone that writes me will get a reply esp if they take the time to tell me about why they are traveling and has taken the time to write a profile as well! I live in a West Indian and Jewish historic neighbourhood right off of Prospect Park! Walking distance to lots of stuff, and I am always game to help out or join! If you read this far, bless you! Don't fight dirty and always look for compromise! Be cool, and we can get along... "and please be honest, this is for posterity."

During your stay
I can be as interactive as you need me to be:)
Saying "Hi" and "Bye" when arriving or leaving to other guests and myself is all the communication I require.
Quiet people are great, but I'm game for being as social as you like.
I have NYC guidebooks and will help you with any questions you may have!
