Welcome to our comfortable and clean home. Located in Brooklyn's up and coming Lefferts Gardens, this private room is three minutes away from beautiful Prospect Park and the subway station. Come to relax and explore all Brooklyn has to offer!

The space

Clean and clutter free, this bedroom is located in a spacious, recently renovated two-bedroom apartment. In your private room, you'll have a comfortable queen sized couch bed complete with linens and towels.

You'll have full access to our kitchen/living room that is equipped with the basic amenities. Please use any of our spices to cook a meal, or just brew yourself a cup of coffee.

The shared bathroom has a full-sized tub with amazing water pressure. Feel free to use our shampoos, lotions, and soaps.

Guest access

Access to kitchen/living, bathroom, and wifi. We hope you'll take advantage of the close proximity to the park as well!

Interaction with guests

You'll be staying with a couple that loves to cook, eat, and travel. We'd love to give you suggestions on local places to dine as well as unique sites to see in the area.

Having moved to Brooklyn just two years ago, we are very excited to share our home and make new friends! We look forward to meeting you and making your Brooklyn stay as enjoyable as possible.

Please note that we are both musicians who work in and out of the home. We thank you in advance for understanding that there may be times you'll hear us practicing. We will keep any playing to reasonable hours (10 am to 8 pm). We are also happy to recommend a variety of venues in Brooklyn and Manhattan if you are interested in listening to live music during your stay.

Other things to note

Please note that check out time is 11:00 am unless special arrangements are made.

Street parking is available on our street as well as the surrounding blocks. Please read parking signs carefully. There is also a parking lot you can pay to use just one block away.

Does your place have a curfew or quiet hours?

In one word: No. NYC never stops and you don’t have to either. Regardless of whether you plan to get up early to explore or spend your nights out late, you can come and go as you please. You will have your own key to the building and our apartment. We are heavy sleepers so don’t worry about waking us. As musicians, we hold odd hours and we truly don’t care when you choose to come and go.

Is your neighborhood safe?

Yes! This is one of our most frequently asked questions. As a woman, I feel perfectly safe walking around at all hours even by myself. Remember NYC is a busy city so it is normal to see people out 24 hours a day. There is a very active police force and you will often see police cars patrolling the neighborhood. It is a very safe neighborhood and neither our guests nor we have ever had any safety concerns.

Can I check in early/late?

If there are not guests the day before or after you we can make arrangements for early or late check ins. We are willing to hold your belongings in our living area if needed. Please make these arrangements in advanced.

What is there to do in your neighborhood?

Our neighborhood is brimming with vibrant, interesting things to do. We are very near Prospect Park, Greenwood Cemetery, even the beach! There are amazing and delicious places to eat. We are happy to give you suggestions and your room has a stack of menus from neighborhood restaurants. If you are interested in music, we are love finding out your interests and giving you suggestions on where you can go. Whether you’re interested in popular, large venues, or hole in the wall establishments, we will help you create the perfect itinerary.

What if I lose or misplace my keys?

You will need to pay $65 for the loss.

Is there any parking at your apartment?

Street parking is available on a first come first serve basis. You will find a spot, but we urge you to read the signs and triple check where you leave your car. There is also a pay-lot a block from our apartment that is available.

Can you accommodate children?

We have room for two guests. If you are coming with one child, we’d love to host you both. However, we do not have the space for more than two people total. We are both teachers and are happy to pull out some children’s books for your visit if it’s appropriate.

What about breakfast? Isn’t this an AirBNB?

Due to our busy and inconsistent schedule, we cannot make you food at home. However, our kitchen is at your disposal. We provide instant coffee and tea and have a percolator for those interested in fresh coffee in the morning. You’re welcome to use our kitchen as much as you’d like. There are also a variety of amazing breakfast places within a ten minute walk from our house that we can point you to.

My stay at Jayanthi's and Aakash's place was great. I honestly was barely there, because I was very busy but the little bit of time I did spend at the apartment was solid. The place is clean and homie, there is a great kitchen and Jayanthi was so gracious to let me use whatever I wanted and even offered for me to enjoy some of the drinks they had in the fridge whenever I pleased. Jayanthi was so laid back and friendly and yet very respectful of my privacy and space. The apartment, just like the room, are pretty small but cozy and comfortable. If you are looking to spend lots of time at an apartment or want to have a romantic vacation stay and dont mind spending a little more for a bigger more open room, then this might not be the place for you... BUT, if you plan on being in and out and mostly want to go out to the city, explore and visit new york AND have a homie beautiful space to lay your head, take a lovely shower, be able to cook some home made food and relax at the end of the without breaking the bank or worrying about what time you come back home without having go answer to anyone, then this place, then Jayanthi's IS THE PERFECT PLACE FOR YOU! The place might seem a little far from the action, but it is soooo close to the Q subway (and a few other ones) which take you directly into thr heart of Manhattan in less than 20 min. The neighbourhood has lots of jamaican and carribean residents and can seem a little grungy, but I definitely felt safe walking around and during the day it is lovely to explore the area, check out some unique food and cultures. Awesome stay!!! Good value! Lovely hosts!

This room is really calm and close to the train station next to prospect park (5min). We even had good interesting conversations and they gave me some good advises of amazing places of the city. The flat is located in Brooklyn near lovely prospect park. It takes your 25min to Manhatten or 25min to brighton beach in the opposite direction. I enjoyed the time at that place very much. Thanks to Jayanthi and Aakash.
