Our amazing triplex in the best neighborhood of Brooklyn is perfect for families or groups of friends. It has 5 bedrooms plus additional space for sleeping in the 2 living areas. You will be 30 sec. away from the train and close to the best dining.

The Space

Even though it is located in one of the most energized cities in the world, this New York brownstone is natural haven.

It has three gorgeous and light filled floors looking onto ecologically landscaped gardens and water features. The roof deck boasts 360 views of the city and is shaded by a pergola and surrounded by a green roof. In the front you access the house via a bridge over a natural water feature with native fish and turtles. In the back there is a glass deck overlooking a large ecologically landscaped garden with a natural swimming pool - bring your bathing suit!

Inside the house are all reclaimed antique wood floors, clay walls, and large bright sunny rooms. The design is spacious and modern using natural high quality finishes. In the winter it is kept cozy with radiant floors and in the summer it stais cool with intelligent solar design. There are a luxurious 1,800 square feet in total, which is massive by NY standards!

With five bedrooms and 3 couches there is plenty of private space off the very large common living areas. Three bathrooms, a large soaking tub and a glass walled shower provide all the pampering you need. And if that isn't enough you get free yoga and massive discounts at our yoga studio and spa around the corner.

And if you need even more room we offer a two bedroom two bath duplex in the same brownstone with a fully equipped kitchen, living room and back porch.

The Neighborhood

The Heart of NYC is only a bike ride away!
The neighborhood has award winning restaurants, boutiques, bike rentals, kayaking, pools, all within blocks.

Vive Le Carroll Gardens! New York Magazine just rated Carroll Gardens in top 10 areas to live/work/play in NYC!!

The Brownstone Brooklyn neighborhood that was once an Italian stronghold is quickly becoming the city's Little Paris - fueled by a new French program at a local public school.

Neighborhood playgrounds have recently filled up with French-speaking tots - making it easier these days to find croissants than cannoli on Court St., where merchants have seen a surge in French families looking for favorite products from home.

French government officials estimate there are as many as 20,000 French residents in Brooklyn, more than in Manhattan, with the largest concentration in Carroll Gardens. Butcher John McFadden, whose family owns Staubitz Meat Market, has seen a surge in demand for French-style racks of lamb, boeuf bourguignon and filet mignon. 'It's doubled, tripled, recently,' McFadden said. 'It's good for us.'

Carroll Gardens' other main strip, Smith St., has become so French that restaurant owners launched a Bastille Day celebration. 'If you come to my restaurant on Saturday or Sunday, everyone is speaking French,' said Jean-Jacques Bernat, whose postcard-perfect French bistro on Smith St., Provence en Boite, has begun stocking special candies and other goodies, especially for the nabe's growing numbers of homesick expats.

  • This place is AMAZING!! A mini oasis in the heart of Brooklyn. We came here for a bachelorette party and the house was clean and incredibly comfortable for all 9 of us. (memory foam mattresses?!) Backyard and rooftop garden are spectacular, and the location is perfect. Subway is literally a 1/2 a block away, little restaurants and cute coffee shops around the corner, but the street is peaceful and parking was not a problem. Loretta and her partner are great. Terrific response time and they both really helped us give my little sister the most amazing bachelorette weekend possible. Will definitely be coming back, and soon!

  • We enjoyed our stay at the Beautiful eco triplex w/ green roof. It was an oasis in the city. Loved the neighborhood and the peaceful and quiet nights. We slept like babies. Thank you for a great stay!

  • It was a great stay for our startup camp of 11 employees. Big enough space. They were very helpful. Thanks

  • Thanks Loretta! The place was fantastic: it slept 10 comfortably, had a large kitchen/dining room, and a beautiful rooftop deck and back porch overlooking the pond. The place was immaculate yet had an intricate collection of aquariums, terrariums, and objets d'art. Metro access is on the same street and several blocks from great bars, restaurants, and a whole foods. Highly recommend.

  • We had a nice stay in Brooklyn with our friends! Our group was large with 4 kids and 4 adults and everyone had a place to sleep, and we were also able to have nearby friends come over to visit as well. Great location for a mini-reunion of college friends and the kids loved the natural pool, turtles, and fish. Loretta was perfectly lovely and extremely accommodating. A note to future airbnbers, the apartment is a bit of a "work in progress". The shabby-chic/vintage/flea-market decor is lovely, however some things were loose or about to break. There was a crab walking across the second floor floor. But, we caught him, and put him back in his dirt cage. But he may have escaped again. ADVENTURE TIME!

  • What a unique and gorgeous brownstone to call home for a wedding weekend. Ten guests slept comfortably and there was still room to set up pre-wedding projects (flower bouquets, decorations, etc) in the living room. We even took a dip in the stunning pool! As people came and went, they loved the sweet turtles out front. Sweet memories were made. Thank you for a fun and relaxing stay!

    Thanks for the great review! You had such amazing weather for your weekend & wedding! Could not have been better!!

  • We couldn't have asked for anything more. Loretta was an amazing host, and her place was exactly what we were looking for: spacious, comfortable, cozy, eco-conscious.... The green space was spectacular from frogs in the garden to turtles and fish in the ponds. The roof garden was a favorite feature. We'd go back in a heartbeat. A perfect place for 8 girls to gather and cook, eat, drink wine and chat pond-side, and right in the heart of one of my favorite neighborhoods. Spectacular.

I am a local small business owner who loves to travel! I use airbnb constantly and love to find new places to stay. I think it is the best way to travel especially when you have kids or a group of friends. I love warm weather & enjoying nature. I enjoy visiting new towns and checking out their real estate.
