Elegant 19th century "brownstone" duplex on lovely, quiet & safe street in beloved area (vibrant, diverse, ...) in the heart of booming Brooklyn. Around corner from train, restaurants/stores; 5 blocks to stadium or lovely Prospect Park; 15 min's into Manhattan. Quiet house with lovely back patio & landscaped garden. Tons of positive reviews. .... Welcome!

The space

Hi! Please know ...*this room is for 1-3 nites only!; *rates are seasonal (see calendar); *1 nite only has $15 cleaning fee; *see overview under HOST/PROFILE; *we require AirBnb verifications, completed Profile & your full name. Thank you ----------------
Room #3: BIG SUNNY ROOM WITH DECK AND BACKYARD ACCESS.
Queen-sized futon bed in elegant dining room (so no closet space). Quiet; french doors directly to deck/patio (overlooking backyard); hardwood floors. Shared bathroom 1 flight upstairs. Old-world charm (moldings, etc.) but in great shape.

Please understand that this is not our preferred room to rent out. Therefore this is generally for 2 nite max but sometimes 3. Also ...*rate varies by number of people (already calculated into AirBnb system); *nominal kitchen access (coffee, light breakfast but pls no cooking) ... *further detail is listed below but note that all other general information - regarding the house, the host, the location, guest expectations, etc. - is listed under Host/Profile. ***And pls use "Contact Host" and not "Book It" - for reasons noted in the Host/(URL HIDDEN)

Thanks! And we look forward to hosting you!!

)-----------------

MORE DETAILS: see "My Other Listings" as our preference is for our other rooms to be rented first and we keep this one open.

A few more notes about this room in particular: 1) when you are out, we are likely to still use the room to eat at the dining table, and so it MUST be kept neatly each day & there can be no bad odors (from athletic wear, etc.); 2) there is a high window above the patio doors such that light comes in early; 3) the room is adjacent to the kitchen which generally is used only by me but regularly for breakfast (around 7am), lunch & dinner (around 7pm), and the door in between is not sound-proof; 4) other side of the room is the living room which is never used in the mornings but sometimes at night, with doors in between (elegant old sliding "pocket" doors) but which are also not totally sound-proof.

***And again, please be sure to read the full description within my profile for IMPORTANT GENERAL HOUSE INFO (including the house set-up, more on the location, etc.)

Guest access

Bathroom of course; plus access to back deck and backyard. Nominal use of kitchen and living room.

Interaction with guests

I am usually around and welcome pleasant interaction; but I am also usually pretty busy (work from home) and so won't have extensive engagement.

Mitty's house was ideally located for me, on a lovely street near my son's (very small) apartment. The house was very clean and quiet, and full of African art, which I love. There were two great coffee shops nearby, and lots of interesting walking destinations. I would definitely recommend a stay at Mitty's place.

Just a short stay, a beautiful neighbourhood & a beautiful home. Mitty made sure we were able to come in around his work commitments. The communication was fantastic and we would love to stay there again when we return to Brooklyn! Great neighbourhood & a great night at the Brooklyn Museum 1st Saturday event. Thank you Mitty. What a pleasure.

Mitty provides very clear and detailed communication both before and during the stay, so I will not add very much, aside from saying that all of the information provided is accurate and very helpful. Mitty and his daughter Naia are both very welcoming and engaging and as a single woman staying alone, I felt very safe and welcomed. I would stay again and would highly recommend the space to anyone looking for the experience described. :)

Mitty is great--helpful, flexible with check-in, communicative, and welcoming! The house is beautiful--hardwood floors, art works, and a lovely garden in the back. And the neighborhood was perfect for my needs. Short subway ride into Manhattan, but with all the charm of Brooklyn.
