About this listing
This is a spacious 2 bedroom Brooklyn apartment with full kitchen, gorgeous yard, and friendly neighbors.
Located on a beautiful landmarked block in Prospect-Lefferts Garden, it is a 5 minute walk from Prospect Park. The Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens are also within walking distance. It is two blocks from the Q or B train, Prospect Park stop (20 minutes to Union Square). Two blocks in the other direction are the 2,3 and 4,5.
The apartment is one of two in the building, and is located on a quiet street (which competes every year for greenest block in Brooklyn). Nearby are all amenities like grocery stores, farmers markets, restaurants, etc. Parking is readily available on the street.
There are two private rooms, one with a full sized bed and one with a full sized futon. Couples welcome.
Perhaps the biggest draw is the yard. Very cozy, with BBQ and hammock. Beautiful all year round.

Eva was very responsive and helpful. Apartment is exactly as described- very spacious, indeed. Thanks Eva!
Eva's joint is great, spacious, and inviting. Her back yard is an amazing and rare Brooklyn treasure. Thank you!
Staying at Eva's was great! It was cozy and homey, perfect for a quick getaway. She was also pretty flexible about our check-in, which was great when we missed the train...her directions to her apartment were perfect, and it was literally a five minute walk to Prospect Park. Highly recommended!
Eva's apartment is as adorable as it looks in the pics. The location was convenient, being very close (1.5 blocks) to a well connected subway station and bus stop. It's also very close to the famous Prospect Park. Eva was a very gracious host. She helped me with commuting tips as well as other great tips on eats and places to see around town. She left her place clean and left me room to hang clothes and stow away other knick knacks. She had a lovely assortment of teas in her very cute kitchen, which I enjoyed waking up to each morning. Her shower was powerful and had good hot water, something much needed after along day of commuting in NYC subways! Overall I am very pleased with my experience and would stay at Eva's place again in a heartbeat!
We stayed at Eva's apartment for two nights while visiting NY and wish we could have stayed longer. The apartment was in a great location - gorgeous tree lined streets and quick walk to the subway. The space itself was really spacious, welcoming and homely. The walls were adorned with artwork and Eva has obviously put a lot of love and attention into her space. We felt as if we were getting an authentic Brooklyn experience staying there. Eva was friendly and very helpful, providing information about her neighbourhood and all the tidbits we needed to know. She was also very prompt in following up on our emails. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again in the future.
This was a last-minute booking (we booked on Sunday and wanted to check-in on Tuesday) and Eva got back to us very quickly when we made our inquiry about her apartment. Her fast response was really appreciated. Eva was flexible about the number of nights we could stay (we booked for 8 nights) and she was very easy to work with to arrange the booking.
Although we didn't meet Eva, she sent us several emails, and a detailed note about the apartment and the neighborhood. She also followed up with a phone call when we checked in to make sure everything was OK.
Finding on-street parking was a challenge on several nights and we had to drive around quite a bit to find a space and leave our car quite a ways away. You also have to move your car by 8:30 a.m. if you're parked on the side where street-cleaning is scheduled, but that's New York City.
Since this was so last-minute and Eva was out of town, the apartment wasn't set up for guests as I'm sure Eva would have liked. But overall the apartment was spacious and comfortable, and she helped us out in a pinch.
