Studio apartment for rent - great for a small family or good friends traveling to New York. It's a large sunny space, a beautiful view of the skyline and a (sometimes) low-maintenance cat. 5 min to Prospect Park and 20 min to Manhattan.
The apartment is absolutely wonderful! It's an L-shape studio with a separate kitchen and bathroom. One side is a long wall of windows, where you can see over buildings to beautiful Prospect Park! This is one of those rare apartments in New York, that may get too much sunlight. (Don't worry I have shades). The studio is divided into a bedroom area, living room area, and multi-purpose dining area (please note: there is no TV). I have a small typical dining room table, and then a short Japanese-style table that that I use to do work and eat (you sit on the floor on blankets or floor cushions). I'm a yoga instructor, so I have many yoga mats, meditation cushions, props, and ample space to move around and practice. Laundry in the building, and maintenance on call if you have any problems.
This space would be perfect for family members wanting some private time from whoever they're visiting, a couple coming to the city for the holidays, or even a small family (I teach kids yoga classes, so I also have some kids games and stuffed animals). The apartment comfortably fits 2-3. If you're more adventurous (or are traveling with smaller humans) you could fit up to 5 people - I have a double pull out couch, and a queen sized blow-up mattress.
The apartment is part of an apartment complex called Patio Gardens. There's an outer gate and a security booth and then the main door to the building. Linens and towels included, and you'll recieve a card for the laundry - it's in the building.
Interaction with guests
I'll be available via text or email throughout your stay. If you have any other issues, you'll have the contact info for building management and maintenance - they are great at responding.
Other things to note
The windows face the train, and you can hear it when it goes by. I've had mixed reactions from guests about the noise.
I would say I have a medium sensitivity to noise, and it doesn't bother me at all (then again I live here). I'm 7 floors up so I only notice it when I'm watching TV and a particularly loud train goes by. Most people who have stayed here told me the same. That said, if city noise bothers you, this may not be the place for you.
My apartment sometimes includes a cat! Veetzie is a healthy 10 year old, and is extremely friendly. Lately I've been bringing her with me when I travel, reach out if you have a preference.
*Please note: my apartment is not a good fit for you if you have any cat or pet hair allergies. While the apartment is cleaned regularly and before every booking, as any cat lover knows, it is impossible to get rid of every hair.
***Check in and check out times vary depending on the day. If you are running on a specific timeline, please inquire BEFORE booking.
