The space

I have a single room that is very small and cozy that only will accommodate one person. It is the perfect room for the traveler who is just looking for a place to rest for a few nights in any given week. This is a shared apartment that has two other rooms with one room already being occupied by me. The traveler would only have to share the bathroom with one other person, since my room is self-contained and has its own bathroom. This room is located on the second floor of my home. It is in a beautiful duplex apartment in Brooklyn that is 15 minutes away from downtown Manhattan by trains. My neighborhood borders both a Jewish and a West Indian community and I live on a small block. It is located across the street from a playground and one block away from the Interfaith Hospital. There are post offices, pharmacies, grocery stores, hair and nail salons, supermarkets and other places that provides a variety of amenities nearby. The C train is just one block away & the A trains are two blocks away, the LIRR is also a block away and other means of public transportation are very convenient just in case one does not drive. There is a parking garage that is located three blocks away from my home, also a BP Gas station and a Seven Eleven is located around the corner just in-case one does drive. Furthermore, The Children's museum, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Bridge, Prospect Park and the Botanical Garden are all amazing sites to see while staying at my home.

***Sorry this room only accommodates one person!! NO Extra Guests are allowed!!! Thank You!!

Portia and her mother were very nice and friendly ladies. I personally did not feel entirely comfortable in their home. The bedroom was extremely small and almost clostophobic feeling. The bedroom is located up a 3 story walk up which is not entirely comfortable to access. The …
