Great, light-filled tastefully-decorated loft in a luxury building with amazing views of Manhattan and the statue of liberty. It's in a charming neighborhood with wonderful parks and restaurants and very easy access (train block away) to Manhattan.
This home is a two bedroom luxury loft in Brooklyn, NY. The building has a 24 hour doorman, elevator, maintenance staff, a gym, a beautiful garden/courtyard, bike valet and laundry. The apartment is renovated and has all amenities (Wi Fi internet, dishwasher, etc.) It is filled with light and is very spacious. It has beautiful views of manhattan, the kitchen has all new stainless steel appliances, master bedroom includes a home office area. The second bedroom is set up for a 9 year old girl with a twin bed. The apartment is in the Cobble Hill/Carroll Gardens area of Brooklyn--one of the most desirable areas in Brooklyn. 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" avoiding crowded tourist areas when you want to retreat. The apt is next to the subway and bus. In a 10 minute subway ride on the F train you can be in downtown Manhattan, and get to numerous NYC tourist destinations. The neighborhood is great for foodies with many excellent destination restaurants (frankies, prime meats and buttermilk channel within a block--all award winning and excellent), bars, food and wine shops. There are also interesting stores and great shopping in the area. It is a terrific neighborhood for children with several playgrounds within walking distance, and plenty of children's activities. A short bus ride or a longer walk take you to Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum and the Brooklyn Botanical gardens.
Yes the train to Manhattan is a block away.
No smoking or pets
Really nice apartment, very nicely decorated with wonderful huge windows with fabulous view. This is the perfect location too. Everything you could want is within walking distance of this lovely Carroll Gardens residence.
Sarah's apartment was great. Everything you would expect from the previous reviews and pictures. The location is perfect and close to tons of restaurants and bars. We even used her babysitter for a night which was an added bonus. I would definitely come back again.
Fantastic space in a fantastic neighborhood! (With a view of the city right out your window!) The apartment is very large, very clean and felt very much like a home, which is nice!
There were a ton of great restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, etc. all around us in Carroll Gardens, not to mention very quick and easy access to the subway making travel super easy.
Additionally, working with Sarah was easy and she was very quick to respond to any questions I had.
Five Stars all the way - A fabulous apartment, fantastic neighborhood and lovely host - I would recommend Sarah's space to anyone looking for a VERY well priced and affordable space when visiting NYC.
Sarah was a joy to work with. She was super responsive and very attentive. My parents staid at her home during the weekend of my wedding, and the place was clean, comfortable, and perfect for them.
My family and I stayed in Sarah's lovely apartment and were very happy with our stay. Sarah was helpful and responsive to our questions and the space was clean and bright with lots of natural light. The views of Manhattan and Brooklyn were amazing and watching the elevated subway pass was a highlight (the highest in the world Sarah noted!) The neighborhood is great with lots of delicious food options and great for walking around. We had a wonderful time and very happy with our first Airbnb experience!
My 3 friends and I spent the weekend at Sarah's loft and had a great experience. The space is welcoming and beautifully decorated and Sarah was very accommodating. Getting around Bklyn was easy - the subway is close and taxis are everywhere. Added perk to the neighborhood: street parking is free on the weekend.
My family very much enjoyed our stay in Sarah's beautiful apartment. It was very clean, tastefully decorated and has outstanding views of Brooklyn and Manhattan. The neighborhood is fun and the subway is only a block away. We did not have the pleasure of meeting Sarah, but she was easy to communicate with and responsive to emails.
