The space

Experience our lively Brooklyn neighborhood by gorgeous Prospect park and rest up in a tranquil, beautiful bedroom. Your bedroom and bathroom are on your own floor, within our charming Classic red brick house. Close to it all: great bars, restaurants, shops, 2 mins to subway (22 mins to Manhattan, ). Tastefully decorated, well loved. Plenty of books to read, and we have lots of recommendations for great local places to eat, drink, hang out, listen to music, and enjoy all that Brooklyn has to offer.

Guest access

Your bedroom and bathroom are on your own floor, which is the 3rd floor of our red brick house. Kitchen use is allowed in the mornings until 10 AM. We both work and tend to be in bed by 11pm, so if you plan to be out later than that, this probably is not the right fit.

We are happy to help guide you. Also, at least one (and in some cases both) of us is also able to converse in French, Italian, German, Spanish, Greek and/or Portuguese. We love the neighborhood and have plenty of suggestions, so don't hesitate to ask!

Other things to note

We have a small, sweet, welcoming little black yorkie-poodle mix. She is very quiet and loving, and also discreet.

While you are here: Shoes off in house please. No smoking, candles, or parties/events. Our house cleaner comes Tuesdays 10am-7pm and will be coming and going throughout the house during those hours for laundry and to clean your space.

We enjoyed staying at Sam & Emily's. The house was historic & beautiful. The location was perfect for us since it was close to the botanic garden & the subway station was nearby. Sam & Emily are very lovely and gave great advice and recommendations. All in all, a good stay.

I've visited 5+ airbnb's in Brooklyn in 2016; Sam and Emily's home is a real gem. I grew up in a suburb and felt confined in apartments. Yet whenever visiting NY I am overcome by the grandeur and how big everything felt in NY. Brooklyn somehow meshes this big-city grandeur with the community I feel in my hometown; I am surprised by how frequently I hear my name yelled out by a friend in a seemingly vast cityscape of countless people. What i'm trying to say is, this intimate immensity I feel in Brooklyn combining the familiarity and community I feel in my hometown with the grandeur and excitement of living in NY cannot be more accurately brought into physical being than by Sam and Emily's home. On a personal note, the host accommodated my late 10:30 arrival no problem, and made me feel welcome and invited to a small get together they had in their home that coincided with my visit. I highly recommend this location for your next stay in Brooklyn, particularly if you enjoy spending time in Prospect Park as the house is located in Lefferts not more than a few blocks away.

I would highly recommend staying here. The house was clean and really cute and I had the whole 3rd floor to myself. Sam and Emily were really nice and cared about making sure that I was comfortable.

I am so glad I chose this booking for my stay. Right away this lovely couple welcomed me with open arms. Emily really has a talent for hosting. She gave me lots of suggestions for things to see and do in Brooklyn as well as Manhattan. She would often check in on me to make sure my needs were met and made understand that she was available for me if I had questions. She has a real talent for hosting. Sam was working a lot during my stay, but even still, he made time to connect with me and made me feel 100% welcome in their home which is absolutely stunning by the way. It's such a unique place. So unlike most living spaces. great energy. Inspiring really. They live a couple of blocks from a train stop and the walk to the train is full of life. I spent many hours working at the friendly little coffee shop that was right around the corner and just exploring the neighborhood. It was my first trip to Brooklyn and I loved it. Thank you Sam & Emily for making this trip possible and way more enjoyable than I expected. Hopefully I can come back.

Sam and Emily are lovely hosts, they were excellent communicators and flexible with my arrival time. Their home is beautiful, welcoming and cozy. The room is lovely and clean, bed is comfy, and space is quite private as it is on the third floor. Location is as stated -- centrally located less than a block from public transportation and close to many shops and the park.

Emily and Sam run the perfect balance between being welcoming and respectful of your personal space. Their house is a gorgeous walk-up with wood floors and a beautiful aesthetic. They have clearly put a lot of thought into ti but also make you feel like you can enjoy the space. The room itself is clean, has good natural light, a really nice mattress and a full size bathroom next door. It also on a floor without other bedrooms so it feels like you have your own place. Prospect park and its amazing lake is two blocks away, right next to the subway that gets you to downtown Manhattan in 30 minutes. It was a real pleasure to have this place to retreat to after days in the city.

Emily and Sam are great hosts--very attentive and responsive. The bedroom was on their third floor and it is nicely arranged with a comfortable bed, a chest of drawers and a bookshelf. We really felt at home! The room is next to a spacious private bathroom. Our hosts value quiet and privacy, which was just what we were looking for, too. The neighborhood has wonderful cafes and restaurants. We are very much looking forward to coming back!

We both grew up in Paris, France. One of us is an academic, the other a journalist. We love Brooklyn, reading, walks in beautiful nearby Prospect Park, music (especially live — check out the Owl Parlor near us! and Blessings on weekends), and great food. We also love sharing the …
