The Space

Hello fellow airbnbers!

When we travel (which we like to do often!) we enjoy renting out our Beautiful one bedroom apt in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn where we have lived for over 10 years.

The apartment is not huge but we keep it very clean and neat and as uncluttered as we possibly can, and it (email hidden)ly and artistic decor. There is a nice sized living room with two big bay windows with views of brownstones and trees, an open kitchen, a cozy, simple bedroom, and a large bathroom with a full bath. There is an option for a small Alma Bloom mini crib in the bedroom, it works well for small babies. If you don't need it, we just fold it up and leave it in the corner. You can also fit a pack-n-play. We also have a great baby bath you are welcome to use in the tub.

The building has 20 units, it is well maintained and we have very friendly and helpful neighbors.

The apartment is on the First floor which is rare in these parts, and will save your knees especially when lugging up your suitcase.

We also have a Projector with a 60" projector screen in the living room for fabulous home entertainment, it connects to our cable TV, and can also connect to your laptop of ipad via a VGA adapter (which we provide). We have very fast WIFI, and our audio receiver has an attachment for your digital device for listening to music.

One of the biggest perks about our apartment is its proximity to the train and to the many amazing boutiques, bars, and restaurants on bustling Smith street. The F/G Carroll street subway stop is only one block away. It takes 10 minutes to get to the East Village in Manhattan.

We are also around the corner from Carroll Park which has an amazing playground and it's a fun place to just sit and drink your coffee which you will hopefully buy from the amazing Smith Canteen Cafe across the street.

We are just one mile from Prospect Park, straight up Union Street, or you can also take a 5 minute subway ride to the 15th street entrance.

We are walking distance from Brooklyn Heights, DUMBO, Park Slope, and Redhook, all amazing neighborhoods worth exploring. We just love the new water front development in BK Heights which leads to Brooklyn Bridge Park- A must see!

We charge 150/night during the weekends and 125/night during the week plus a 60 dollar cleaning fee.

Our apartment is best suited for two people, but a third could fit on the couch if he/she is not too tall (it is not a sleeper, and it's approx 70" long), and we can also provide an aero bed. Keep in mind that the bathroom is through the bedroom.

When we travel, we also like to stay in airbnb rentals, so we know what you expect and we are very conscious about meeting those expectations and making you feel comfortable in our home. There are always fresh linens and towels for you and small bites in the fridge. We enjoy our coffee with a french press, not a coffee maker, and we do not have a microwave, just in case that matters to you.

Our apartment has very strong Air Conditioning in the summer and powerful heat in the winter.

We hope you are OK with watering our plants while you stay here.

We are always happy to answer any questions you may have, and we look forwarding to hosting you at our lovely abode!

  • My husband and I stayed at Jess and josh's apartment while visiting Brooklyn for a wedding (at "The Green Building" which is only a couple blocks away on Union -- super convenient!) The apartment was lovely, clean and spacious for two people. We especially appreciated the A/C because it was a very hot/humid weekend. Wonderful, communicative hosts. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Great location, small apt full of personal belongings but still very good for a short stay. Jess is a very friendly host and If you like being in Brooklyn I definitely recommend to stay at her place.

  • We loved staying in Jess and Josh's apartment. It felt like staying at a friend's house.
    On top of that: quiet and safe neigbourhood, just one block from some great restaurants, bars and boutiques but also just one block from subway.
    Prior to booking and upon arrival, we were in contact with Jess through email and she always reacted very quick, which was great.
    Thanks Jess&Josh and congrats!

  • The apartment was perfect for my recent stay. The proximity to shopping, dining, subway, et al makes it convenient for the occasional tourist. The apartment was just as described and Jess was very accomodating regarding arrival, departure times. Thank you. i hope to make your place my "go to" place on future visits!

  • Thanks a whole bunch. We had a great time staying at Jess and Josh's place. It was very easy to find and not far from Manhattan. They were very helpful with a list of local places to eat and easy to follow instructions about the projector and trash. We had a blast and would definitely stay again next time we are in New York. The place was clean and very neat, it was just like staying at home. Thanks again.

About
Hi! We are a kind creative couple (and 13 month old!) who have been subletting our apartment for around 8 years now whenever we travel. We are very clean, have a well kept home, and know that you will love staying here as much as we do. We are very techy, so we have a powerful computer with high speed internet as well as a projector with cable tv for home entertainment, a vga adapter to project from your laptop or ipad, and a strong wifi connection. The apartment is ideal for one or two people. A third person can sleep in the living room on a couch or aero bed, but you should know that the bathroom is next to the bedroom, so the third person will have to walk through the bedroom to get to the bathroom. The neighborhood is amazing, and with the subway on the corner it is just minutes away from Manhattan, although, most of the time we prefer to stay in Brooklyn. Come stay!
