The Space

Before submitting any reservation requests (by clicking "book it") please make sure that you have first:
- read through the entire listing description - read through the "house rules" section - contacted me directly and I've confirmed availability
When the nightly rate is set to $10/night, that is not the actual price, but what it means is that there's flexibility for those dates and you can name your own price. If we can figure something out that works for everyone then I'd more than happy to host you.
Please be sure to click on the "calendar" tab above the photos to see if the nights you're interested in are priced at $10/night.
So again, $10 = name your own price. This does not apply to any other nights on the calendar so please be sure to look at your dates specifically.

Brooklyn Retreat - Charming Oasis

Located on one of brooklyn's charming tree lined blocks this retreat is just steps away from every city convenience.

Our neighborhood is bordered by Gowanus, Carroll Gardens and Park Slope. We are also minutes away from the Barclay center, the Atlantic Center Mall and the one of greatest area to choose from all kinds of dining. We are also home to a great diversity of ethnic groups, which reflects the great spirit and character of New York City, the melting pot!

Park Slope Retreat, located in a nineteenth century building in the heart of Brooklyn. It's features include a fully equipped eat-in kitchen, a great cozy living room with cable tv/wireless internet, a bathroom and two charming bedrooms with a queen size bed, a full size bed and a folding role away twin bed (if needed).

We are centrally located between both 3th and 5th Avenue shops, restaurants, cafes and markets. And on weekends the Park slope Greenmarket, bring local produce and agriculture right to our neck of the woods just 5 blocks away. Sightseeing nearby, include Prospect Park, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, Brooklyn Academy of Music, which are all easily commutable via train or cab, even walking!

For those who are interested in visiting NYC, the subway is only 1/2 block away ( R) where you can get into lower Manhattan within 7 minutes or Midtown in 10 minutes. The R train is literally less then a minute away. And a 5 minute walk or one station connection to 2,3,4,5,N,R,B,D,Q (basically every train you'll need) train station.

However, truth be told with all the great neighborhoods to explore nearby - Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Prospect Heights, Fort Greene, etc., you may not ever want to leave BROOKLYN!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our family loved our stay at Hope's apartment. Hope was always available to answer my questions and recommended great places in the neighborhood. The apartment was nice and clean. The best part about this apartment is the location. It is just minutes away from the subway station, so it's very easy to get into Manhattan. I can fully recommend staying at this place.

  • My son, husband and I recently stayed in this apartment for a week located at 586 Union in Brooklyn. We really felt that it was a perfect accommodation for us during our visit to Brooklyn, and we feel that the convenience and comfortableness of the apartment added considerably to our very happy vacation time.

    It was very nice to have access to extra sheets and/or towels when we needed them without having to ask for them. Since the weather was much chillier than we had anticipated, we appreciated the warmth of the apartment after a cool and windy day in the city. The room arrangement was just ideal for the 3 or us, and we greatly enjoyed the comfortable overstuffed chair and the couch, and especially the thoughtfulness of the lap blanket in the living room.

    We made great use of the dining table, appreciated having dishwashing soap and materials available, and the hair dryer was a nice addition. We felt that the rooms were attractively decorated, and we loved the "homey" feeling of the apartment, as well as its close proximity to the subway station and several very enjoyable "eateries."

    All in all, we had a wonderful time and were happy to have the opportunity to enjoy the city with a "home to come home to."

  • I stayed one night at Hope's apartment and it was a very pleasing experience. First of all, Hope gave very clear indications and I had no problems reaching her or getting into her place. The flat was very very clean, comfortable and and very well heated (this was especially important since it was extremely cold in New York at that time).

    Again, I cannot stress enough how clean and cosy the whole place felt. Hope was a great host, even taking the time to check personally on me after I arrived. She therefore clearly deserves 5 stars.

  • We really liked the neighborhood-full of great Brooklyn attractions. We liked the restaurants and easy access to the subway. Hope was gracious, kind and very honest.
    The flat was clean and the beds were comfortable. Hope left us with a nicely stocked refrigerator, which we appreciated. The building is an older one, with high ceilings and a railroad flat layout. I think it would be a squeeze for 7 large people to stay there-maybe a family with small children? We were comfortable as a group of 4. The kitchen set up is simple but adequate and the furnishings are pleasant. All in all we had a good time!

  • We enjoyed our stay in Hope's apartment. It has plenty of room for a large group, especially by NY standards. Close to subway and great shops and places to eat. Dino BBQ next door is great! The building & neighborhood itself is a bit questionable of but the inside of this apartment is very nice.

    Response from Hope:

    It was a pleasure to host you and your husband at my place. My sister in law still still makes jokes about me staying that even my guests think I'm crazy for choosing NYC over Dubai. The building is an older building but that's very typical of's what makes NYC so eclectic/cool and charming. The block borders park slope which is known for being one of the safest areas in NYC..... Even safer then manhattan. I hope to see you back in NYC and my place is all yours for future visits.

  • I stayed in Hope's charming 2 bedroom apartment in Brooklyn as part of my visit to NYC in November 2013. Hope was a very gracious and responsive host. The apartment was quite nice with gleaming hardwood floors and spacious for the NYC area. It was extremely well located, just minutes from Manhattan via. subway.

    For those considering it, I can recommend Hope's apartment for those travelling for pleasure or business. The apartment is a first floor apartment so I recommend ear plugs if you're not used to a bit of street noise. As a slightly older building, the floors had a slight slope rather than perfectly level, but this wasn't a problem and didn't bother us. There is parking available across the street for $25/day and cheaper elsewhere if you don't mind walking a bit.

  • This was our first experience with airbnb and I could not imagine having a better one. Our group of six adults were all very comfortable in this truly charming oasis. This home is nicely furnished, meticulously clean, quiet, and warmly decorated. Hope is an awesome host, very accommodating, and definitely part of the "charm." Her great communication and warm personality made our experience even more delightful. Some of the other reviews mention the exterior appearance of the building and the slope of the floor as inconsequential and I agree whole-heartedly. Any concerns were fleeting and quickly melted away, overwhelmed by all the positives. We would definitely stay at this Charming Oasis again and recommend it to anyone.

  • We had a wonderful stay in Hope's apartment in Cobble Hill. Her home was very well cared for, and was super clean and cosy. It's in a really lovely neighbourhood and the location is perfect for exploring Brooklyn and just a short subway trip away from Manhattan. On top of all that, Hope is a really great host - super helpful, warm and friendly!! We enjoyed chatting with her a lot and felt she was available for us. She communicates well and will make you feel at ease about renting her apartment!
