My home is close to Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, the Brooklyn Museum, endless kosher and non-kosher food options such as Basil, Boeuf & Bun, and Chocolatte, 770 Eastern Parkway, the very much booming Franklin Ave (with yet more restaurants and bars,) and an express train to Manhattan. You’ll love my place because of its coziness and vintage charm, and you'll only be a short or walk or train ride to almost anything you can imagine seeing in New York.
I'm super laid back, but eventually even the most zen amongst us realize that a few clearly stated boundaries spare us a world of heartache and frustration...
1. Don't trash the house.
2. Smoking is strictly outdoors only- on the porch, in the backyard, on a bench on the parkway. Anywhere but inside the house. And please don't throw butts in the garden.
3. Check in and check out exists to create a smooth, positive experience for everyone. There are days where one guest leaves and another arrives, and communication is key to handling this in a way that's respectful to everyone. Please communicate any plans that deviate from the official (contracted) schedule ahead of time. Checking in early or checking out late with no warning can ruin the experience of another guest.
4. Lets all fight indoor stuffiness together! If you open a window when you go out for the day, I will l(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)e you.
5. In trying to be fair to all guests (and since it's actually come up more than once,) I've gotta ask... If you love to use more than a spritz of perfume or cologne, please do your spraying in the bathroom. I have no way of knowing whether the next guest will be allergic, and I don't always have the turnaround time to air things out for days between guests. (UPDATE- As it grows colder and we close the windows, this perfume issue is becoming more of a thing. And I promise I never, ever, ever imagined I'd be saying this, but, straight up- I want you to feel at home, but at home in a shared home, so when Eau de Clearance Sale at Victoria's Secret is seeping out from under a door and filling the halls and kitchen, it is NOT CUTE.)
6. And this also came up... You have a full kitchen at your disposal 24/7- please no food preparation in the bedrooms!
7. My computer is not communal property. I wouldn't dream of picking up your laptop or phone without asking, so please treat mine the same.
8. If I'm in New York, I'm not on vacation. Ninety nine times out of a hundred, I will be overjoyed to bend over backwards to help you have the best possible visit, but please understand that I can't let my work life fall apart and this isn't personal.
9. On the same note, if I'm in the living room, please don't feel like you need to stay holed up in a bedroom. Please make full use of the kitchen and make yourself at home!!!!!
10. If you have any questions or concerns, please ask! I know all about being in a foreign country and not being fluent in the language. We can write back and forth with a translator app- it honestly doesn't bother me. It's far more important that you have the best possible visit.
11. Pretty much #10, but it bears repeating- if you have any concerns at all, pleeeeeeeease don't hesitate to ask while you're here! You have no idea how awful it feels to read a review after the fact and think, "But we could have resolved this had I only known." I don't think my house is perfect, and I would never pretend otherwise, but I will go all out to make sure you're comfortable, so PLEASE ASK!!!!!
