The top floor of our house is a bright and spacious one-bedroom apartment. The apartment is on a quiet street in a vibrant neighborhood, steps away from shops and restaurants, and just a short walk from the subway with quick access to Manhattan.

The space

The top floor of our Brooklyn house is a fully self-contained apartment. The apartment has a comfortable living/dining area, a large bedroom with a full size bed, an office nook, a basic kitchen, and a small bathroom. It's the perfect retreat after a busy day exploring or working in the city. The space is ideal for a couple, but for two friends or family members traveling together, there is a sofa bed in the living area.
The TV in the living area has Netflix but no cable channels. The kitchen is well-equipped for preparing simple meals, but please note there is no dishwasher!
In order to accommodate business travelers and people coming from abroad, our check in and check out times are flexible. However, we prefer guests to check in after 11 AM and to check out by 4 PM. Please just let us know if you need to arrive earlier or leave later.

Guest access

Guests have their own keys to come and go as they please. The front door at the top of the stoop is exclusively for the use of our guests and leads into a private entrance foyer with stairs going up to the apartment.

Interaction with guests

The apartment is fully separate from our family home in the lower part of the house. We are on site to offer help and advice, but otherwise you are left alone for the duration of your stay.

Other things to note

For safety reasons, the apartment is not suitable for toddlers or young children.
We have a cat that lives in our family residence. He does occasionally venture up to the apartment when we have family staying. The apartment is thoroughly cleaned whenever new guests arrive, but people with serious pet allergies may prefer a totally paw-free zone.

Beautiful apartment close walk to the subway, restaurants, bars and shops. Susan was extremely easy to organise our travels with, and accommodating when our flight was delayed so we arrived late. The apartment was very clean and tidy, everything you could need. Would definitely stay again

This was the perfect home away from home whilst on holiday in New York. The main bedroom was spacious, especially with the adjacent study area, and the bed was very comfortable - perfect for falling asleep in to recover from jet lag. The apartment was beautiful, cosy and had everything that I needed for my short stay. I particularly loved the books Susan had in all of the rooms - there was even one on Prospect Park and Brooklyn Botanic Garden which are just a short walk away from the apartment. The apartment was well stocked with travel-sized toiletries and upon arrival I found a welcome basket filled with some lovely bagels, fruit and other treats which was a nice surprise. Susan was always on hand if I needed any suggestions for my daily itineraries and she provided excellent advice on what to prioritise and how to get around the city. I also found the booklet that she provided with information on local restaurants, supermarkets, taxi services, as well as the traditional Manhattan sites, very helpful indeed. I can't recommend this lovely apartment enough, it helped make my trip a truly unforgettable experience!

We stayed at Susan's lovely apartment for a week. And we were so happy with our choice!! Susan was an excellent host who truly cared about our well being while we were there. The apartment is not only tidy and clean but it is also beautifully decorated with thoughtful layout of things one might need while being away from home. Thank you for having us, Susan! :)

Susan was good at communicating with us and my in-laws had an enjoyable stay there. The place was clean, comfortable, and well-equipped with the basic essentials.

Susan was a perfect host. She was prompt and clear in her communication. She was thoughtful in offering amenities to make our stay more comfortable (e.g., umbrellas during a couple rainy days). The apartment is comfortable, very clean and very well kept. Great location. Would have loved to stay longer!

My husband and I moved to Park Slope from London 17 years ago. I work in education and my husband works in the arts. We love New York and never tire of all it has to offer. Our grown-up children have left us empty-nested, so we're making the most of the extra space!
