Very spacious bedroom also overlooking the Botanic Garden. The queen size bed is a dream (note DingDong, the queen of the household, catching a nap)

Bright, spacious corner apartment perched directly across the street from Brooklyn Botanic Garden, steps from Brooklyn Museum and Prospect Park, with food and music all around!
3bdr/1 bath occupied by 2 professional women in their 30s, and 2 funny cats.
Non-smokers only!

The space

It's bright, massive, and could not be more optimally located in proximity to nature, cultural institutions, delicious food, fresh urban vibe, and public transportation.

Guest access

In addition to a very large bright bedroom, you will have access to the massive living room which includes a particularly comfortable leather couch and movie projector, fully stocked eat-in kitchen, and two extraordinary cats (in my entirely objective opinion)

Interaction with guests

I live at the apartment and am naturally friendly and gregarious and prone to cooking and sharing food...but happy to give you as much space and privacy as you need. The apartment is VERY large (by any standards, not just cramped NY standards) so there is plenty of space for everyone to get the quiet and privacy they need.

Other things to note

I don't own a TV but do have a movie projector hooked up to several services

Elevator in Building

I loved the location! It was easy to get to the city and the park was just right there. Irina was away during my stay, but she made sure that everything was okay.

The entire experience was fantastic. Irina is just awesome, not only as a host, but also as a person. Easy and interesting to talk to. Room was clean, bed was insanely comfortable, kitties were adorable, bathroom was spotless. 12/10

I absolutely loved my stay!! The room was spacious and clean, and the bed super comfortable. The apartment was also very clean and cozy, and the kitchen very accessible with cooking utensils available. The location is superb - easy walking distance to several subway lines, near tons of restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores and bars, and directly across from the gorgeous botanical gardens and Prospect Park. Irina was traveling when I arrived, but she had arranged for a friend to make sure everything was set up for me - and it was, perfectly! Irina and her friend both checked in regularly with me to make sure I didn't need anything. I felt so cared for! The real highlight, though, was DingDong and Lentl, two of the sweetest kitties in the world. Their snuggles immediately made me feel welcomed and right at home. And that's exactly what my experience felt like -- at home. I was really sad to go!!

I am a primary care physician at a lively community health center in Manhattan. However, there is nothing quite as serene as arriving back in Brooklyn at the end of a frenetic day of Manhattan or relaxing in a hammock in Prospect Park on the weekends listening to leaves rustle o…
