About this listing

The most exquisite location. A wide, quiet, tree-lined, safe, friendly lovely block. Two minute walk to everything that is charming about Windsor Terrace. This quaint garden apartment in a traditional limestone.

The space

This is a truly special private apartment in a highly desired location.

It is a clean bright space that opens onto a lush garden. Open layout kitchen with breakfast bar. A surprisingly roomy living room with bright windows. The bedroom is definitely cozy (smallish) but fits a full sized (double) bed and a dresser -- so it's big enough for comfort and privacy. Superbly pristine for your visit.

Guest access

This apartment is all yours with private front entrance. The garden which is large and lush and has a great patio for lounging is a fully enclosed secluded space. It has a feeling of complete privacy, though it is also accessed by the upstairs neighbors as well (a lovely family!). We just ask that guests exhibit commons courtesy, but please make yourselves at home!

Interaction with guests

I leave the apartment clean, perfectly prepared and private for you. However, I am always reachable by cell phone -- and will respond quickly to any questions or needs. Please do not hesitate to call/email/text with your questions.

Other things to note

Keep in mind this is not a SHARED apartment. It is a private guest one BR apartment. Clean and furnished, but empty -- empty drawers, empty closets (with hangers). You are not living in someone's lived-in home or staying as a roommate in someone's apartment. Therefore, even though I try to provide most essentials in the apartment: clean towels, clean sheets (plus xtra set), pots, pans, coffee maker, utensils, hair dryer, etc. ...and even, shampoo, dish soap, laundry detergent, paper towels, toilet paper etc... Please do not expect everything beyond that to always be there -- for instance, there will not always be every condiment and seasoning in the kitchen that you need. If occasionally something is not there that you need or I have run out of it, as much as I try to think of everything and keep necessary items stocked, you will need to go to the store sometimes for some items that you need, but have no fear there are shops everywhere within a block -- it's truly lovely! I apologize if I don't have everything always there, and I hope you can understand this can sometimes be the case. It is not a shared or borrowed apartment and it is not a hotel either. I DO however welcome suggestions about items you think would be a good addition to the apartment, so I can improve my apartment readiness in the future. What you get with this booking is an adorable super clean apartment in a very high-end and convenient neighborhood -- and I try to do my very best with the rest of the details in the apartment. That is what I promise -- wholeheartedly!

Though in a fabulous location and charming, this is not a large apartment, so even though it can accommodate 3 people (a double bed and a sofa-bed) I recommend you check out the floorplan I have provided in the photos so you decide what works for you. Also, I do charge a fee for more than 2 guests.

IMPORTANT: Guests must make contact directly with me. The person who will be staying here must read the description, the house rules and ask me any questions. The booking cannot be made for someone else (parent, relative, friend). The booking must be made by the guest who will be staying.

Be yourselves and enjoy the apartment, Brooklyn and NYC, just please be kind to the space and courteous of neighbors.

I do have some house rules listed below that I ask all guests to review carefully and agree to adhere to all of these rules. I will also send you reminders of these rules upon check-in.

PLEASE READ:
Smoking:
ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING of any kind is allowed inside the building. Do not smoke in close proximity to the building -- as it may bother other neighbors who live there. Do not leave cigarette butts on the stoop or in the exterior areas around the building.

Laundry:
There is a washer and dryer for shared use in the basement. When you use the washer and dryer, please move your laundry along quickly from washer to dryer and out of the dryer as soon as the load is finished. Some laundry detergent is provided and stored in the kitchen. Do not use any supplies that are stored is in the laundry area – those belong to other residents of the building.

Garbage:
Garbage pickups are Monday and Thursday mornings. Garbage should be bagged neatly and placed at the curb after 3:00 pm on nights before pickup (Sunday and Wednesday). Garbage must be placed in a heavy-duty opaque BLACK bag and securely knotted. Some bags are provided and stored in the kitchen. Garbage and recyclables may not be stored in the common areas or hallways of the house. Do not put garbage and recyclables in the bins located in front of the building. Do not leave garbage or recyclables in the areaway of the building (the front exterior of the building).

Recycling:
Recycling pickup is every Monday morning. Recycling should be bagged neatly and placed by the curb after 3:00 pm on night before pickup (Sunday). Cans and bottles should be rinsed and placed in a CLEAR bag and securely knotted. Paper products should be torn or broken-down into small pieces and be placed in a separate CLEAR bag and securely knotted. Some bags are provided and stored in the kitchen. Do not put garbage and recyclables in the bins located in front of the building. Do not leave garbage or recyclables in the areaway of the building (the front exterior of the building).

Pets:
No pets are allowed, including but not limited to dogs, cats, birds and fish. Occasionally pets are permitted upon approval. If approved, there is a fee. It is not often pets are approved though.

Smoking:
ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING of any kind is allowed inside the building. Do not smoke in close proximity to the building -- as it may bother other neighbors who live there. Do not leave cigarette butts on the stoop or in the exterior areas around the building.

Common areas:
Common areas are all the parts of the property and building that are not within the confines of the apartment -- hallways, front or backyard, stairwells, etc.. Please do not store any of your belongings in these areas.

Not so much a rule but an instruction:
THE OVEN:
It is a gas stove. The way to light it is by pushing in on the handle as you turn it so it will ignite. (This is a safety feature of modern gas stoves -- so that gas is not released other than when the stove is lit). Please call/text/email if you have any questions.

Please also read the property description carefully before instant booking so you know exactly what to expect. I encourage you to ask questions about anything if you are unsure. Thanks!

IMPORTANT: Guests must make contact directly with me. The person who will be staying here must read the description, the house rules and ask me any questions. The booking cannot be made for someone else (parent, relative, friend). The booking must be made by the guest who will be staying.

We had an amazing time staying at Sheila's place for the winter, the apartment is very cozy, well decorated and comfortable. The neighborhood is also great, with lots of restaurants and Prospect Park being a block away. Would definitely come back!

We've stayed for 2 months and just booked 3 more months. Love this place, it's exactly as it is on the pictures. It's comfortable and charming, and we love to look at the squirrels in the backyard in the morning. Sheila is very responsive and helpful and made our stay very pleasant. Would recommend for any kind of stay, short or long, for 1 or 2 people.

Perfect. Sure the subway line is infrequent but the beautiful neighbourhood made up for it. I'd stay here again on a heart beat

Sheila let me know all the details of the space before arriving. We didn't see one another at all during my stay but it was fine. Fantastic location in Brooklyn. Safe neighborhood, near the Subway, restaurants, Prospect Park. When I come to NY and need to be in Brooklyn I would definitely stay here again.

Shelia was a wonderful host! She gave us all the info we needed and more! She filled us in on the neighborhood and fun things to do for Fall. Her place was very clean and we found it had everything we needed. There's also great shopping, groceries, restaurants and a cute pie shop all within a couple blocks. We absolutely loved our time! And Shelia even left us a Pack N Play with sheets because she knew we had our 1-year-old daughter with us. :)

I'm a mom and artist. I came to Brooklyn for my BFA at Pratt several decades ago and decided to stay for a while.
