About our home

Our turn of the century home, on a quiet NYC block, has a wrap around front porch, stone fireplace, oak floors/doors and many antiques, but it is still quite comfortable and homey. Our rooms are large and airy. A housekeeper will come in before you arrive and right after you leave to help make the holiday less of a chore when you need to go home. A basketball hoop is in the driveway, bicycles for preteen girls, balls and other outdoor toys are available. We have many unusual NYC guidebooks and always leave current info for guests including discounts to Broadway shows and addresses of our favorite restaurants.

Brooklyn is a destination all its own and our neighborhood has been recently discovered by young Wall Street businessmen and their families who cannot believe there are such large and stately homes with a suburban feel so close to everything! We are a five minute walk to an express subway train, small shops for necessities and food shopping. The ride to downtown Manhattan is less than 30 minutes and in the other direction on the same subway line is Brighton Beach (Little Odessa), Coney Island (Amusement Park), Sheepshead Bay (boating and fishing excursions) and the Aquarium.

My husband and I are in our early 50's and enjoy theatre, traveling and doing volunteer work. We have a typical 17 year old son and two lovely daughters ages 11 and 13. The children are well traveled and are polite and well behaved. We have done many exchanges since the youngest turned 5 and they are well aware of appropriate behavior in someone else's home. We are not child proof but certainly child friendly. References available.
