About This Listing
This is a spacious two floor apartment with a lovely backyard off an open kitchen. The main entrance is the ground floor where you will find a large open living room, play area, kitchen and dining room. Upstairs are the two bedrooms and the second bathroom. The master bedroom looks out over the backyard and has a queen size bed. The second bedroom is our kids' room with two cribs, one single daybed, changing table, toys, etc. There is laundry, wifi and a dishwasher in the house.
We live on a quiet tree lined block in Carroll Gardens, a few blocks from restaurants, cafes and playgrounds on Smith and Court Streets. The neighborhood is lovely and it's a 15 minute subway from Manhattan on the F train (Carroll or Bergen stops).
Chana was lovely to work with while we planned a last minute trip to see my brother in Brooklyn. She was very accomodating and responded quickly to questions. She even set out an air mattress for us since we also brought my teenage daughter's friend. There was plenty of space for our 3 year old, my husband and I, and 2 teenagers to spread out into our little corners after a busy day in Manhattan or visiting my brother's family in Brooklyn. My son especially enjoyed playing with the toys downstairs and left a few books as a thank you. This really made our stay easier and more pleasurable since our little guy could debrief from the day with some imaginative play. The location was ideal! We were a few blocks from my brother's so we met in Carroll Park so our boys could play. There were plenty of quaint local shops and restaurants within walking distance. We always felt safe, even late at night, while walking through the streets. We had a sunny day, and wanted to take advantage of the wonderful courtyard, but never did. There was so much to do in Brooklyn that was within walking distance or a short jaunt on the subway and we spent most of the time with extended family at their place. We would certainly come back to visit again! It was a pleasure to rent from Chana.
Perfect for a family holiday in NY.
The house was excellent for our needs (couple with two kids), the kids really enjoyed the space and so did we, it was clean and inviting,
The location was very easy with transportation, and also nice to walk around in, with great restaurants,
we would be happy to return,
it was also very easy to organize this vacation with Chana,
