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 6 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 (website hidden) 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.
**For a family with a small child it would be particularly good as my daughter has toys, art supplies, riding things for the inner courtyard, a special chair to raise it to the table etc-not necessary but sort of a bonus (I know when traveling with a child these things count for a lot).
No smoking or pets
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.
The apartment was everything advertised. We had a wonderful 3 day/2 night stay in Brooklyn. With close subway stops and neighborhood restaurants and shops, Sarah's apartment was a convenient base to explore NYC.
Sarah helped us a flexible check in time and a guide to the neighborhood. The apartment was immaculate and yet very welcoming.
Sarah was quickly responsive in all our communication. The apartment is beautiful, carefully maintained, spacious with great skyline vistas.
Sarah is a very kind host.
The house is very beautiful, large, with two comfortable bedrooms and an exciting view on manhattan.
At our arrival, sarah left us a good bottle of wine and a interesting notes about Coven Garden district (Brooklyn).
The neighborhood is a very fantastic hipster district, quiet, with a lot of beautiful restaurants and little nice shops.
If we will can, we would like to return here.
Our stay was fantastic. Sarah was a great host helping with out many questions. Great neighborhood in Brooklyn. Very hipster. Great value for and would defiantly go back
