An ideal New York pied-à-terre, with hardwood floors, leafy views, and cool art--steps from local boutiques and bistros and 20 mins from Manhattan. Great for couples or parents visiting NYC-based kids. *Sometimes offer reduced rate for catsitting.

The Space

We're on the second floor of a 19th-century brownstone home. We have great light, tasteful yet fun decor, and even a dishwasher (major bonus in a New York apartment!). The spacious living room has a sleeper sofa, if you're travelling with kids.

The peaceful community garden next door, popular among families and gardeners, is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine at sunset.

Sometimes when we travel we need someone to take care of Duke, our cat (see pics), and so we drop the rate in exchange for some light catsitting (basically petting, feeding, and possibly a lil' litter scooping). When cat is not in home, rate remains at the regular $160 rate.

Guest Access

Our casa es su casa - everything from kitchen spices to books is yours to enjoy while you're here. We just ask guests to be respectful of our space!

The Neighborhood

Centrally located on the border of two neighborhoods--the posh, residential Boerum Hill and family-oriented Park Slope--our apartment offers access to the best of Brooklyn. We're walking distance from dozens of restaurants and shops, Prospect Park (the Central Park of Brooklyn), and the new Barclays Center arena, home to the Brooklyn Nets. A very safe, friendly, picturesque area--one of Brooklyn's best-known neighborhoods.

Getting around

You're a six-minute walk from the eight subway lines that stop at Atlantic Terminal, all of which will get you to any part of Manhattan you desire. Downtown New York is 15 minutes away, the West Village is 20, and Central Park is 45 minutes away.

Other Things to Note

Sometimes we list our beautiful apartment at a discount in exchange for attending to our cat, Duke. Read on only if you are interested in this option. Duke is easy to care for: he only requires a little love, food when his bowl is empty and refreshing his water each morning. If you stay more than two days, scooping the litter would probably make everyone happier. He's very friendly, sweet, playful, people-loving cat who likes to be where the action is (but won't necessarily be crawling up into your lap).

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The place is great. So is the kitty. It's around the corner from where we used to live, which meant that all our favorite spots on 5th Ave were easy walking distance away. We even got lucky with on-street parking in front of the apartment. Inside, we had plenty of space for the three of us and our boy thoroughly enjoyed looking out the windows onto the cars passing by. The cat was super sweet and very chill, allowing our one-year old (who loves cats) to pet him. It was easy to get in touch with Catesby before and during our visit. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Catesby's place was perfectly located. The bed was very clean and comfortable and there was even a pull out couch which I didn't realize was included. This was a nice bonus. There was a small issue with the keys (not her fault) and Catesby was quick to respond. Communication was good. Oh, and we enjoyed the nice bottle of wine that was left for us! I would stay there again.

  • My parents loved staying in Catesby's home. It was convenient, pretty, and comfortable!

  • We had a perfect weekend in Brooklyn thanks to Catesby and Greg. The neighborhood is very charming and the apartment was gorgeous, sunny, clean, spacious, and had A/C (crucial in NY summertime). Their apartment is in an ideal location - a few minutes walk from Atlantic terminal, so it was easy for us to get there from the airport and it was a quick trip into Manhattan, as well. What most impressed us was their hospitality - along with an informational list about the apartment, they also provided us with a detailed list of things to do and places to eat around the neighborhood. We had amazing Colombian food and enjoyed a free concert in Prospect park, thanks to their recommendations. Catesby called me a week before we arrived to check in and find out about any special needs or requests. We arrived early in the morning on a red eye flight; even though his flight was not until 4 pm that same day, Greg left (very) early for the airport so we could check in as soon as we arrived at the apartment - after he took time to show us around the place and make sure we felt comfortable. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. It's a beautiful place in a charming and very safe neighborhood near everything you could want during a trip to Brooklyn. I only hope you get a chance to meet/talk to the very kind hosts, as well. Thanks for an amazing weekend, Greg and Catesby!

  • The apt. Is a deal! Spacious with plenty of light, well furnished and it works! easy subway access to get anywhere, but also a walkable area for soaking up Brooklyn. Catesby was very easy to communicate with....HIGHLY recommended.
