REVIEW: "We can tell you only good words about the experience. The house is nice and charming, neighborhood is great, connections to Manhattan very good and reliable. But what made our stay most unforgettable was the owner and her lovely son. They really made everything to let us feel at home, they were so careful and helpful on everything. It's not too much if we say that she did way more than she was supposed to do. We won't never forget them and we would definitely recommend such experience to anybody. Then we returned 2 more times and they visit us in Rome!"
Come and go any time.

I will be welcoming and helpful, while respecting your privacy. I know a lot about NY & Brooklyn and love my neighborhood. I'm especially interested in arts and music, and welcome artists ... and chefs and gardeners ! I'm also interested in occasional work exchange deals (now, for sewing, gardening, handy-person, computer )
I speak and understand several languages. I work at home a lot, on my main floor, and do prefer guests who are busy themselves, and casual, low-key, trusting and flexible people.
It's an old house with quirks, (not a hotel!) in a fantastic and quiet location.
Included: Laundry, excellent coffee & breakfast foods, nice linens, big garden & BBQ, fans, air conditioner, fabulous cats.
Some use of kitchen and printer is negotiable.
