It's bright, it's airy, it's clean, it has a closet and your own bathroom, it's an urban garden office. Look out the window and you see endless birds n' squirrels above the garden. Down a flight of sunny stairs is a huge living room with two dining tables, a couch, and enough room to dance around or share a meal with a dozen friends and travelers. Walk up a flight of stairs to the garden patio for a breathtaking view of Brooklyn, especially during these long summer sunsets.
A 4 story walk up townhouse with edible garden and rooftop orchard, we want to call it Home Forest. We are learning urban farming as we go and we hope to share the experience with travelers from all over. One day, Home Forest will expand into the real forests out there. The house has a uniquely open layout with beautiful huge windows forming a spiraling air tunnel from the basement to the roof. For that reason, not every room is equipped with air conditioning. Fans will be provided and mobile air conditioning units can be installed upon request. Tired of sharing a bathroom with a billion people? Here, you will either have your own private bathroom or share one with one other room. The house is wired with security cameras in the living rooms and entrances. We also just installed a brand new sprinkler system. Fire extinguishers are above the fridge in case of kitchen mishaps. Speaking of the kitchen, the only small downside of this place is that the kitchen is not huge. We respectfully ask that you allow the hosts to make their daily meals with ease. As I will be getting a cat shortly, we will accommodate small pets for up to 4 days (amount of time I can reasonably stay vigilant). A security deposit will be required.
Once you have completed your reservation, you will be given 2 four digit codes, one for the front door and one for the 3rd floor door. Your will be given a pair of keys for the deadbolt on your room door. This is the only set of key that you have to keep track of. The doors don't close without the key so you will never lock yourself out or worry that you might have forgotten to lock the room. Every bathroom comes with a hair dryer, a bottle of Doctor Bronner's Magic Soap for body and hair as well as a first aid kit. For a small fee you can use the laundry room.
he host and home owners live on the 5th floor (roof). We are a writer/filmmaker and a designer who have enjoyed traveling the world. We love to meet and host people from every culture to share gardening, culinary, among other secrets...
This is a lively neighborhood with lots of block parties and eclectic music being played in the streets. Caribbean food can be found in the immediate vicinity. For chic and trendy restaurants, you can go one miles north to Bedstuy for Nana Ramens or one stop on the 4 train to Franklin Av to Crown Height’s restaurant street. One block south of the house is Lincoln Terrace park which features many tennis courts, basketball courts, as well as a hugulculture mound for ecological remediation.
