ที่พัก

Welcome to Akua’s Bed-Stuy Study. The Study, located on an historic tree lined Brooklyn Brownstone block, offers a serene meditative residence for artists, scholars and others who want an authentic New York Bedford Stuyvesant experience. The block is usually quiet, but being Brooklyn and a a vibrant city, you will sometimes hear the noi,ses of the city, cars, trucks, people on their stoops, garbage trucks and so on. If its the special "flavor" of a Historic Land-marked and fully integrated Bed Stuy block, our home will appeal to you. Akua’s Bed-Stuy Study is two blocks, a five minute walk from the Nostrand Ave A train stop. From the Nostrand Ave A train station, guests may reach the 911 Memorial in 12 minutes or 42nd Street in 25 minutes. It is one block to Citibike bike share at Macon Street and Nostrand Ave.
The neighborhood offers a wide range of restaurants, spas, coffee shops, jazz clubs; galleries African American Churches and easy access to the Brooklyn Cultural District (12 minute bus ride), Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) and the Brooklyn Museum. Akua’s Bed-Stuy Study is in a private brownstone owned by Akua and her husband Carlton since 1981. The house is a Victorian brownstone with all of the original detail including fire places, wood wainscoting, 15’high ceilings and stained glass windows. The Study is a top floor sun drenched bedroom and library with hundreds of books covering a wide range of topics from African literature through sustainable design. The Study comfortably sleeps three adults but can also accommodate 4. Guests have their own private bathroom with Jacuzzi on the top floor, washer and dryer, access to the parlor floor kitchen and access to the backyard meditation garden with a koi pond,waterfall and lush vegetation. Carlton and Akua live on the lower three floors of the home and are generally available for information on the neighborhood and New York.
Carlton and Akua have been engaged in the neighborhood for over 30 years as teachers, artists, architect, sustainable housing developer and activist. The house is a single family home where Akua and Carlton raised their children who are now young adults living in nearby neighborhoods. Akua and Carlton still live in the house and are making the extra rooms available on Air B&B, now that their children have moved out. The point is, it’s still a quiet family home with all the little nick-knacks-knocks indicative of family homes, family photos, sports trophies and all of the little things that make the experience of Akua’s Study so different from a hotel stay. It is not unusual for other artist, activist, business leaders, family friends and public intellectuals who are included in the family’s circle of friends to drop by for lively conversations.

การสื่อสารกับผู้เข้าพัก

We will be present during our guest's stay on most occasions. Will interact with guests when they are on parlor floor or sometimes backyard but can give them as much privacy as they desire.

สิ่งอื่นที่ควรรู้

Like to talk with other environmentalist and people engaged in the world of social justice and culture. Prefer travelers with no children under the age of 12. We also have a house cat, Naivasha who is quite friendly and will want your attention if you leave your door open. She also has a strange habit of taking socks or guest's and dropping them on a rug in the living room on the parlor floor. Why I don't know other than cats do weird things. If you are allergic to cats, Akua's Bed Stuy Study is not for you

If you're into books, a quaint neighborhood, friendly hosts. This location is for you.

คำตอบจาก Carlton:
Lynette, sorry the place did not meet your standards. The house is over 150 years old and does smell old. It always will. The posting said that the house was built in 1879. The posting also said that there is a cat in space and that the space is three flights up in a brownstone row house. I am really surprised you did not see that in the description of Akua's Bed Stuy Study. As for the dust, thanks for that notification. I will let the house keeper know to dust more thoroughly behind the pull out. Also the linoleum is part of the original house built in 1879 and is worn, as are the stain glass windows that were made by a student of the Tiffany workshop. Slowly we are replacing the old linoleum and some other materials with similar historic materials. Slowly is the magic work.

This condition of this home was unacceptable. It is old and has an old odor. The bathroom wallpaper was rusty and torn. There are exposed wires in the bathroom. The sheets for the futon were stained. The linoleum on the steps was in horrible condition. This is just to name a few of the issues. We could not stay in this home and immediately canceled our stay and left.

I visited for business for one month and staying at Carlton and Akua's place was the best decision I could have made. The bright walls and abundant sunlight were my favorite. A spacious desk to work was definitely utilized. The separate space for relaxing on the couch and sleeping was perfect. It's super close to public transportation. I'd definitely stay here again and would recommend this lovely space to anyone. Smooth check-in / check out and great conversation. Thank you both.

Completely accurate description. A lovely space and a welcoming environment. We enjoyed our stay, slept well and soundly, and felt warm and cozy in this house. We left talking about how we will plan on staying here again if we come back to the neighborhood. (Also, Navasha is a very sweet kitty.)
