The neighborhood is filled with beautiful old brownstones and small gardens, and is a great place to be based when you visit NYC. You have fast and direct access to all tourist destinations but you get to live like a "local".

The Space

This apt can also be combined with the other 3 bedroom apt below to make a 6 bedroom!! Combined they can sleep 12-18.

Nicely renovated three bedroom apartment in the heart of Boerum Hill. Three real bedrooms all with queen size beds. One bedroom is large, one medium & one is small. But all have queen size beds that comfortably sleep 2.

Updated kitchen including streamlined appliances and refurbished cabinets. Marble tile bathroom with tub and shower. Bright living room/kitchen with three windows for natural lighting. Living room has a room & board day bed that opens into a queen size bed.

The Boerum Hill neighborhood is rich with dinning, bars, clubs, shopping, and entertainment. Close to the waterfront at Pier 6 & also close to Prospect Park, visitors can find solace in the busy city. Only minutes from Downtown Brooklyn and the Manhattan Bridge. The F and G Transit lines are a leisurely four blocks away. This is the apartment that everyone is looking for when staying in the city.

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.

Getting around

F/G is a 6 min walk. A/C is a 8 min walk. 10 min to SOHO. 25 min to TIMES SQUARE.

  • We loved our stay here in Brooklyn, so close to great places to eat. We took our two small kids and it was so close to great parks for kids and things to do down at the Pier. Loretta was a fantastic host, and came over at early and late hours to bring some extra towels and fix a lock. Great, fast communicator and very easy to deal with. The apartment was spacious and clean, great for sleeping numerous people, we will definitely stay again. Thank you for having us!

  • Good Brooklyn location! Nothing fancy but had all the essentials needed and worked well for our party of 6.

  • This apartment was great! It is exactly as pictured, and more than accommodated our group of 8 with the three quiet bedrooms and a shockingly comfortable air mattress. The location was perfect--lots to do and see in the area, and right near the subway if you want to go somewhere else. We had a lovely time--thanks Loretta!

  • This is a good place to park a large party, something very difficult to do in New York City. Do not be intimidated by the location directly across the street from the Gowanus Houses project. The place felt totally safe and it is a short walk to several ultra-hip Brooklyn areas, especially Park Slope and Cobble Hill. It is also close to the subway. Check in was a bit chaotic with no face time with the owner (just the house cleaner) but we got in okay. Decor is sparse to say the least but it was clean.

  • Loretta was lovely to communicate with, and she clearly wanted us to have the best experience possible. My family and friends had a wonderful stay in what is now our favorite NYC neighborhood!

  • I spent one week at Loretta's with my family. Her house is very well located, nearby the subway (Bergen), many great restaurants, food markets, coffee shops, clothes shops… I really enjoyed staying in Brooklyn and discovering this area. The house is perfectly organized for 6 people. And Loretta is reachable at anytime. She is very helpful. Thanks again Loretta!
    And I will definitely come by your house again next time I visit NYC...

  • Had a great stay at Loretta's place. There were 8 of us, and we fit well in the 3 bedrooms + really comfy couch in the kitchen/dining/living area. The communal space isn't huge, but did accommodate our group well enough for cooking and socializing.

    No complaints. Clean, well-kept, comfortable and in a great neighborhood.

    Thanks, Loretta!

  • Loretta's 3 bedroom apartment was perfect for a weekend stay in New York with friends! It is conveniently located in between the neighborhoods of Gowanus and Boerum Hill, with access to fantastic restaurants, bars, the NY Transit Museum, and the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club. The apartment has easy accessibility to multiple subway lines.

    The apartment is exactly as advertised on Loretta's listing. It's very clean, open, bright and fits 7-8 people, comfortably. The beds are very cozy, the rooms are private, and there are cooking supplies and simple ingredients stocked in the kitchen (ketchup, oil, sugar etc...)

    We had a little miscommunication with Loretta about check-in, but that was quickly rectified. Loretta was kind enough to let us check out late, and that definitely helped get our large party of 7 clean up and mobilize. There is some street noise in the mornings, but that's par for the course with many street-facing New York apartments.

    I'd definitely return to Loretta's place on my next visit to Brooklyn!
