The space

Large, Sunny, Inviting Private Bedroom in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn
Private House-Private Room, Westminster Rd., Brooklyn 11218

Spacious private room on second floor of a free-standing house in the Victorian Flatbush neighborhood of Ditmas Park. Quiet residential street. Garden view. Comfy full-sized bed, premium cable, free wifi. Semi-private bath on first floor. This house was used as a set for the feature films “Definitely, Maybe” with Ryan Reynolds, “Solitary Man” with Michael Douglas and Danny DeVito, and the TV series “Damages” with Glenn Close. Considered one of the best-kept secrets in New York, Ditmas Park boasts suburban living in the Big Apple. Tree-lined streets, Victorian houses, front porches, not what is typically expected of the New York experience. Very accesible to public transportation, walking distance to Prospect Park, easy commute to Coney Island in one direction and Manhattan in the other. Our neighborhood provides the best of both worlds, however, because right down the block is a veritable restaurant row reflecting the diversity of the neighborhood with Japanese, Filipino, Mexican, Middle Eastern and Tibetan restaurants, among others.

Room can comfortably accomodate 2 adults, possibly one child but no infants or toddlers due to staircase.

Please note: This home has cats but feel free to close doors to keep them out. We also have a bird.

We had a great stay over Christmas with Alice and Stan. The room was perfect, especially after a long flight! We were made to feel very welcome. The house is in a beautiful street, and close to the subway. We felt perfectly safe walking around at night. Great restaurants near by!
