Welcome to my two-room studio in Prospect Heights! This ground-floor apartment has a queen size pillowtop bed, kitchen down the hall from the sleeping/living area & large bathroom with tub and shower. The apartment was renovated in 2014.

The space

With a larger living & sleeping space and separate kitchen at the other end of the hall, this apartment feels bigger than a typical New York studio. At approximately 500 square feet total, it is ideal for one person, but has also been rented by couples many times. For couples looking for a bit more space or planning a stay longer than a long weekend, you may find the apartment on the small side. For that reason, I do not charge extra for two guests!

The apartment is on a quiet street just a block away from the express 2/3 train and two blocks from the express 4/5. It's across the street from the Brooklyn Museum and Botanical Garden and a half mile from the Grand Army Plaza entrance to Prospect Park.

The apartment is quiet, secure and peaceful. I never hear anything from the neighbors upstairs. The other tenants in the building are mostly 30-something professionals who work in NYC. The landlord lives around the corner and is readily available to help out with any issues that might come up during your stay.

The apartment has fast wifi, AppleTV with access to HBO and Netflix, kitchen utensils and cooking supplies, a new fridge and stove/oven and a Simmons queen size pillowtop bed.

The apartment is on the ground floor, and the stoop up to the ground level has four steps.

Guest access

The entire apartment will be yours during your stay. There is no garden on this property and roof access is prohibited.

Interaction with guests

I will likely be out of town during your stay but will be readily available by phone and email and will provide you nearby contacts, including my landlord who lives around the corner, for any issues you might have.

Other things to note

I have a dog, but she will not be here during your stay! You can expect an apartment free of fur when you arrive, but those with severe pet allergies might want to take extra precautions.

Very clean and reasonably quiet. Air conditioner adequate for fall weather but might not be in heat of summer. Bathroom was great. Lots of hot water and roomy. Kitchen nice too but we did no cooking. It was a little cramped in the living/ sleeping area but this was our first stay in a studio. Bed was comfortable. Liz was attentive and available by phone.

Thank you Lorraine. You're absolutely right that the apartment was hotter than usual, and I apologize for that! It turns out the AC vent needed to be cleaned. Apartment temperature has never been an issue for my summer guests, to my knowledge.

Comfortable space in great location. Not spacious but pretty typical for New York. Liz communicated quickly and clearly with us and the apartment worked well for a long weekend in Brooklyn. Wide variety of restaurants to eat-in or takeout nearby and very close to Brooklyn Museum and Botanical Gardens as well as choices for different subway lines.

Amazing location. Across the street front the Brooklyn Museum. Like really a 3 minute walk to a world class museum. Lots of food and drink options within walking distance.

Liz is a great host! Perfect location to enjoy the best of Brooklyn, great nearby restaurants and stone's throw from subway, Brooklyn Museum and Prospect Park. Can't wait to come back!

Liz is an incredible host! Her place is pristine and tastefully decorated. As a lone female traveler, I felt safe walking back to the apartment at night.

I had a great stay at Liz's cute apartment in Brooklyn. Beautifully decorated, quaint and cozy, this apartment is the perfect place to stay while spending most of your day out and about in the city! The thing I appreciated the most about staying at Liz's was her communication and quick replies to my questions. Any feedback I suggested to her was accepted and appreciated. Thanks for the great weekend, Liz!
