About this listing
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!
SO much to do and so little time in Brooklyn. Venture into Manhattan for an even bigger experience.
Happy to give you any recommendations during your stay.
Very close to the trains and buses. Uber and cabs are a phone call and Uber app tap away. We have a car but usually Uber for short trips, especially when we don't want to give away our parking spot!
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 $100.00 booking deposit, in case of any damage which will be refunded to you immediately upon your leaving.
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.
