Willoughby Ave, Ridgewood, NY
(1/2 block from Bushwick, Brooklyn)

Basic kitchenware, bedding, and towels included or you may bring your own.

The space is newly renovated.
Private, off-street parking spot goes with the apartment if you need it. It is right outside the apartment door. There is also easy street parking.
Short or long stays possible for 1 or 2 people—the same people 1 or 2 people who list their names in their response to me.
There isn't a way to say this in the Airbnb format, but
1) the apartment has one queen-size bed and a pull-out couch (queen size bed), and
2) it is an "entire apartment" but in a semi-attached house and not in an apartment building.
Medical students doing residencies at the Wyckoff Hospital (6 blocks away) have been good tenants in this spot because they are close to work and have a quiet space to study and sleep. Other successful guests have been those staying here as they look for permanent apartments in NYC, European and South American tourists, and family/friends of other Bushwick area residents who neff a little more space.
NO SMOKING OR SMOKERS ON THE PROPERTY.
If you are interested in staying here, please let me know the
1. names of the 1 or 2 guests who will be staying,
2. confirm that neither guest smokes,
3. Please let me know your desired check in and out times. Knowing this helps me plan for cleaning and other guests who may book close you your days, thanks, and
4. Please confirm whether you will be needing the parking space. If you don't specify that YES you will need the parking spot, I will assume you do not need it.
References required if you are not already reviewed on Airbnb. I am most comfortable renting to guests who have a record on Airbnb.
Thank you! Guest AccessThe apartment and (parking spot if confirmed). Interaction with GuestsI usually plan to greet guests with keys and show them the apartment. After guests settle in I leave them to their privacy unless they need something and text me for it.
