The Space

Sunny, spacious 1 bedroom apt sleeps four. Comfortable and gorgeously furnished with queen-sized bed, sofa-bed with queen-sized mattress and chaise lounge. There is also an air mattress available. Direct TV, all utilities & Internet service are included, as well as linens, pots, dishes, silverware, etc everything needed to make you feel right at home. Just bring your clothes and toothbrush. Conveniently located close to the C train, buses, cafes, shops, weekend flea-markets, Pratt Institute, Steiner Studios, Brooklyn Hospital, Methodist Hospital, The Brooklyn Museum, The Brooklyn Navy Yard, Barclay Center, Dumbo, Metrotech, Grand Army Plaza and all NYC must-sees. The apartment is on the fourth floor in a quiet Landmark Building on a pretty tree-lined block. This is a walk-up, there is no elevator, however, the steps are not steep. The area is safe and secure with neighbors and students out and about at all hours of the day and night. Long and short-term stays are welcome.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We stayed in Catherine's apartment for four nights with our both little daughters. The location was perfect, comfortable and close to the subway and grocery store. Ideal with children to avoid the busy and loud Manhattan. Catherine was such an accommodating and thoughtful host. There were waters, bread, cereals and cookies in the fridge and extra towels set aside for us. We were satisfied with staying at Catherine's location. Thank you!

  • This apartment was really great. We are a family of five and this apartment is absolutly spacious enough for five. The subway is just 2-3 minutes away and take you straight to Manhattan in 20-30 minutes. Catherine Harper was an exellent host and very keen to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The apartment is on the 4th floor without elevator. No aircondition makes the apartment warm when it is hot outside. We would love to come back another time.

  • Staying at Catherine's place was great! She met us at the subway on arrival and gave us a lot of information about the neighborhood and NY City. She was only a phonecall away in case we needed her.
    The apartment is close to the subway, a lot of restaurants and food stores but it's a bit noisy at night. You could hear emergency vehicles passing in the street many times and we had to keep the windows open due to lack of AC.

  • Catherine was a wonderful host who replied promptly to all our mails and set us up nicely with some food to get us started after a long trip. The apartment was wonderfully spacious and comfortable. If there were one thing that could have been better, it is the internet connection which was not very reliable. Thanks for making us feel at home!

  • Very spacious, sunny and quiet apartment, with well equipped kitchen and comfortable double bed. Catherine was very friendly and helpful.
    The only drawbacks were the rather slow internet and the lack of dark curtains to keep the early morning sun out.

  • Catherine's apartment was gorgeous. I couldn't have asked for better arrangements in NYC. Everything was clean and there were plenty of amenities available, including a large collection of maps of the city and flyers for excellent destinations. I visited with three other people, and our schedule was thrown off by about 12 hours, so we arrived early in the morning. Catherine's brother Carlton was there with a warm welcome as soon as we arrived. Unfortunately, our schedules never matched, so our correspondence with Catherine was strictly over phone which was no issue at all.

    I cannot recommend her place highly enough. You're a fool not to take advantage of this amazing apartment.

  • El edificio no tiene ascensores, y el departamento esta en un piso 4 por lo q al llegar fue un poco agotador (eramos dos y andabamos con 4 maletas. Sin embargo al entrar al departamento ya se compensó el esfuerzo, es realmente bonito, ademas hasta olía a limpio. Catherine nos tenia unas provisiones en el refrigerador, y nos explico el funcionamiento de su casa, fue muy amable. En el mismo edificio vivia su hermano, quien tambien fue nuy amable y nos ayudo cuando necesitamos usar una impresora (q no teníamos), por ejemplo.

    Por otro lado, el barrio se ve muy sencillo a simple vista, pero Brooklyn es un barrio con mucho q entregar si se (email hidden). Ademas a dos cuadras habia varios minimarkets y verdulerias donde nos abastecimos bien, y lo q es MUY importante, el metro esta a dos cuadras (estacion clinton, av. Washington).
    Nuestra estadia fue genial.
