Right in the heart of "South Slope" is this apartment for rent, which is close to trains, restaurants and the magnificent Prospect Park, every convenience is at your fingertips. We keep a clean and streamlined home, but cozy enough to relax in. There is one full bathroom, a convertible sofa-bed and a full sized bed upstairs in the master bedroom. The apartment is fully stocked, just bring your toothbrush!
The best part is the nice sized deck off the kitchen, which is great in the Spring and Summer. It's comfortable and sunny, but also has one high wall which blocks direct sunlight, so it isn't overwhelmingly hot. But if it is, just swoop into the kitchen for lemonade!
Right on our corner of 12th Street is a great diner at 7th avenue as well as your pick of fabulous restaurants and on the other corner at 6th avenue you have your choice of two different great coffee houses, another two restaurants and a nice avenue to walk down which is more residential that 7th or 5th aves. 7th Avenue has quite an array of shops os well. Most of the time, we have a hard time trying to decide where to eat and shop! There is a movie theatre a few blocks away and Prospect Park is three blocks away.
The house is accessible to the F/R/G trains. And we are about a 35 minute drive to JFK and Laguardia Airports. The ride into Manhattan is about 20 minutes on the F train.
The adjacent neighborhoods are Prospect Heights, Carroll Gardens, Windsor Terrace. And a bit further is Brooklyn Heights, Dumbo, Boerum Hill and Fort Greene. Close by is the Barclays Center. If you are not driving, we suggest using UBER or the local car service, Continental is also reliable.
There is internet and cable TV.
We reside downstairs when we have guests upstairs. (This is a two family house)
Thanks and look forward to seeing you!
The whole apartment is yours with it's own private entrance. Come on in and make yourself at home! Consider all toiletries and anything else in the cabinets free to use.
Interaction with guests
We are here to help, but will usually stay out of your way and leave you to your privacy. This is a two family house and we live downstairs. But as it goes with busy NYC lives, we sometimes never bump into our guests at all!
Other things to note
There is no "bell" at your entrance. If you are expecting a delivery or guests, they should expect to knock on the door.
There is a $60.00 cleaning fee which goes directly to our wonderful cleaning lady to insure you have a sparkling stay.
Respectful of our friendly neighbors.
Hi there. We used airbnb during our honeymoon trip in Northern California and we loved our experience. Our listing is new, but I am an experienced landlord and thankfully, have had great experiences sharing spaces (both offices and apartments) in NYC over the last several years. I was born and raised here in Brooklyn and love the neighborhood. We keep a tidy but "lived in" house. We hope you'll reach out and inquire about the space. I'll be happy to answer any questions that you have. And I really look forward to having our first airbnb guests come and enjoy our home and the neighborhood!
(Oh, and that's my husband and two kids in the picture....Rob, Leo and Lucy.)
