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.


Standard: Wifi, Cable TV, Washer, Dryer, Laptop friendly workspace, and 14 more
Other highlights: Free street parking, Host greets you, Extra pillows and blankets, Garden or backyard

A beautiful room to rest and write in. A lovely "host family" with such an inviting and elegant home, but privacy of room and bathroom. Generous breakfast provisions and guidebooks, plus clean dishes as if by magic! And all within an easy (and beautiful) walk either to the subway…

I spent a week here and had an absolutely wonderful stay. The room is lovely, and in a quiet neighborhood that is safe and walkable day or night. It’s just a few minutes walk from the subway that will take you right into Manhattan. Alice and her family are warm and welcoming host…

Alice and Stan were terrific hosts. The room was spacious and well decorated, very clean and very comfortable. It had a small refrigerator for snacks and drinks and coffee or tea maker. The location was in a nice neighborhood; I felt safe walking even after dark from the subway. …
