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.

The space

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.

Was looking for a place in Manhattan at the first place, but couldn't resist Emily and Sam's beautiful house after seeing the pictures, and it lived up to my expectation! It's a beautiful and clean house, which has been thoughtfully taken care of. They were very flexible when I had a visitor to stay and even upgraded my room, what a treat! The location is very convenient for shops and taking subway into the main tourist attractions.

Just want to say a massive thank you to Emily & Sam for allowing me to stay in their beautiful home. Loved every minute of my time at Winthrop and so happy I chose to stay out of Manhattan & see the real NYC! As hosts you were attentive but not intrusive, allowing me to come & go as I pleased, but offered great advice too. It was like being at a home away from home & Calypso is the cutest! Thank you x

Best night sleep I've had in awhile. It was very quiet. I enjoyed a wonderful walk in the park and thoroughly enjoyed meals at Blessed just around the coner.

It's great staying with Emily and Sam. They are gorgeous persons and it feels like coming home every day after going out in the city. They do more than what they are actually required to do and try to make your stay to be as comfortable as possible. Everything was clean. The atmosphere was friendly and the dog is cute and friendly to strangers. I would definitely come back!

Both are very nice people. You will get a great and very helpful welcome pack which makes your stay even better. They are open for every question you might have. And the location allows you to be super flexible with the connection to the subway, grocery stores, places for breakfast, etc. All in all totally recommendable

I enjoyed the stay at Sam&Emily's place. I especially liked the books around the house. The room was exactly the same from the picture. And they have a super friendly and cute puppy!

I enjoyed my stay in this room. Emily and Sam were very nice and welcoming and their home is very pretty and cozy. There is a park in walking distance and and there are many possibilities to discover Brooklyn. This house is perfect if you want to discover a different area of New York but still have the possibility to visit Manhattan, since it's just a 20 minutes subway ride away.

Sam & Emily User ProfileSam & Emily is a superhost.

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.
