Gorgeous Brooklyn apartment for a great price, just take care of our huggable kitty while we're away. Recently renovated with mid-century charm, warm, eco-friendly, with queen bed, comfy pullout couch, and gorgeous sunset views of Brooklyn.
If you want to have the real Brooklyn experience, this is your apartment, full of charming retro touches, sustainable finishes, and comfort. You enter this beautiful 650 square feet by walking through a hallway painted with adorable, fantastical creatures, done by notable Brooklyn artist Cern. Windows in every room let in lots of light, and the south facing windows have an unimpeded view of Brooklyn. Note that this is a 6th-floor walkup, so be prepared for a bit of exercise while you are here. All the finishes are non-toxic, including the reclaimed barn wood floor, white walls, organic linens, non-toxic kitchen cabinets and non-toxic cleaning supplies. Dining room table seats four comfortably. Watch TV on our projector, or get out and explore the neighborhood! The high-quality pullout couch has been approved by someone with chronic back pain as supremely comfortable, even when not pulled out. Walls are soundproofed so that a fiesta could be going on next door and your would barely hear it. Apartment generally stays at a comfortable temperature, but you can turn the new radiators on and off for your comfort. Blue tooth speakers in both rooms.
You can use the entire apartment, save for the musical equipment, which will be covered with a sheet. If we find that you have touched any of the equipment, we will be keeping your security deposit.
Interaction with guests
Depending on when you arrive, we will either leave a key for you at a nearby location, or let you in and show you around before leaving. Sometimes, if you check in early in the day, we might pop back in later to grab our luggage on our way to the airport or train station. How accessible we are by message during your stay depends on where we are traveling to.
Other things to note
This apartment comes with an adorable kitty named Pancho. Look him up on Instagram under #panchothecoolestcat. He's sort of famous, and if you play your cards right, he might give you a Pancho Hug. (TM) We only require that you feed him 2 times a day. He likes to get up with the sun (sorry, we've been working on that) but if you feed him or put him in the bathroom, you can go back to sleep.
No parties or events. Please do not bring home people to our apartment. Do not touch our personal items except for the kitchen stuff and blue tooth speakers. Be respectful of our neighbors. There is an alarm at the top of the stairs that will go off if you try to go up on the roof, please do not trigger it. Do not go on the fire escape – we can't guarantee its safety. By booking with us, you release us from liability if you decide to go out on the fire escape and get hurt, because we clearly told you not to go on the fire escape. You can help yourself to anything in the fridge or pantry, so don't be afraid to put the kitchen to work!

This profile is for Alden Wicker and my husband, Illich Mujica. I'm a freelance journalist, writing about sustainable fashion. Illich is an architect and DJ. We are open-minded but responsible. We are both very organized and neat. We like to go with the flow and do our best not to get hung up when things don't go according to plan, because it's life! If you stay in our home, you'll find it cozy, friendly, and fun. If we stay with you, we'll leave your home as neat as we find it, and will follow all your rules. We're talkative, but also respect boundaries. We like to have a conversation or two with you to get to know you, then run off and do our thing. We're still friends with many of the people we've met through AirBnB. In fact, we attended a wedding in France of a couple we met through AirBnB. :)
