The next time you need a little escape, but a full-on vacation isn’t exactly in your bank account, hop on Airbnb—or your ethical rental platform of choice—and find yourself a cute local hideaway! That’s what I did for Valentine’s Day this year and the experience was just as good as leaving town.

Occasionally, I’ll take one of these “staycations” as a way to clear my head or celebrate something special. This allows me to recharge and capture the feeling of a vacation without actually leaving my neighborhood.

Check out this super-cute loft apartment in Greenpoint! It had a cozy, lived-in vibe, which matched the couple who lives here perfectly. I got to meet them briefly before they took off for a Costa Rica adventure.

Check out this loft bed—it’s tucked away above the living room. I love it when a living space feels like a sanctuary. It’s one of my goals for my own living spaces.

An indoor hammock is definitely another goal.

Look how this room invites you to lounge and unwind! In fact, something I loved about this space was that it had a place to lounge almost everywhere you looked.

Between the benches, plants, and poufs, it was almost impossible not to relax.

And because we would be there for a few days, I brought my laptop along to stay on top of client work. My work station was rather picturesque. I could get used to typing away in a cute place like this…

As far as Brooklyn staycations go, this was a good one.

What would you do on your own Brooklyn staycation?
