Charming, sunny, private room in beautiful brick house in Brooklyn. Quiet oasis steps from Prospect Park and Q subway 20+ mins to Manhattan. Garden views, antique + vintage décor, abundant books; lovely feel of a historic Brooklyn house with original details, wood parquet floors. Shared bathroom is tidy and clean. Small antique desk for your typing needs. Our hypoallergenic, sweet, quiet yorkiepoo lives with us.
This house is full of historic detail, beautiful, and quiet. Your room overlooks the backyard, sun-drenched, on the second floor. The shared, ultra clean, tidy bathroom is one of the many rooms with all the original vintage details — including 1950s pink and black subway tiling! We are a relaxed, cozy, quiet, dog-loving home.

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 great addresses in our neighborhood with our guests! If you have any questions, we are here for you. Our style is tranquil, quiet, and courteous.
