The Space

Located on one of Sunset Park's charming tree lined blocks this retreat is just steps away from every city convenience”.

Our neighborhood is bordered by Bay Ridge to the South, and Park Slope to the North. Named after Sunset Park, which is one of the highest points in Brooklyn. The park affords a magnificent Manhattan skyline views, as well as views of New Jersey and Staten Island. We are also home to one of the largest Chinese communities in New York (2nd Largest), as well as a great diversity of other ethnic groups, which reflects the great spirit and character of New York City, the melting pot!

Sunset Retreat, is the full 2nd level of our brick townhouse and for the guests exclusive use. It's features include a fully equipped eat-in kitchen, a extra large living room with cable tv/wireless internet, a bathroom and charming bedroom with a queen size bed.

We are centrally located between both 5th and 8th Avenue shops, restaurants, cafes and markets. And on weekends the Sunset Park Greenmarket, bring local produce and agriculture right to our neck of the woods just 5 blocks away. Sightseeing nearby, include Prospect Park, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, Brooklyn Academy of Music, which are all easily commutable via train or cab.

For those who are interested in visiting NYC, the subway is only 3 blocks away (N, R, and M) where you can get into lower Manhattan within 20 minutes or Midtown in 35 minutes.

However, truth be told with all the great neighborhoods to explore nearby - Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Prospect Heights, Fort Greene, etc., you may not ever want to leave BROOKLYN!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Die Wohnung liegt in der sehr ruhigen 55.Straße etwa 8 (zur Lokal) bzw 10 (zur Express) Gehminuten von der Subwaystation entfernt.
    Man betritt zunächst die zum Hof hin orientierte Küche, an die ein kleiner Dusch- und WC- Raum unmittelbar anschließt. Über den Schlafraum (fensterloses Durchgangszimmer) erreicht man das Wohnzimmer, mit Fenstern zur Straße.
    Wohnung und Ausstattung sind ordentlich; das Doppelbett sehr bequem. Die Couch im Wohnzimmer eignet sich für schlanke Personen auch zum Schlafen. Essplatz und Küchenausstattung sind ausreichend. Die Wohnung ist absolut ordentlich. Haydee, die Mutter der Vermieterin wohnt im Hochparterre, sie ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Sie kümmert sich um etwaige Anliegen der Gäste. Annette haben wir nicht kennen gelernt.
    Die Wohnung entsprach unseren Vorstellungen für einen 5-tägigen New York Aufenthalt.

  • I very much enjoyed my stay at Sunset Retreat. I booked late, but Annette got back to me very quickly and was able to answer all questions I had in a timely manner. Very clean and spacious apartment for NY. Was able to accommodate my late check-in and early check-out. Annette's mother Haydee was very kind and helpful as well. Great location and a very quick walk to the subway. I would definitely stay here again.

  • My parents stayed at the Sunset Retreat while visiting me in Brooklyn. This is what they had to say:

    My husband and I just spent a delightful 3 days and nights at
    Sunset Retreat! We had plenty of space and slept so very well - great mattress! Our apartment was spick and span clean. We will definitely want to return!!

  • I stayed in Annette's lovely "Sunset Retreat" for the entire month of March. I walked the 10 blocks to my daughter and son-in-law's home (also in Sunset Park) most mornings and evenings where I helped with my infant granddaughter. This is the second time I've stayed here and can wholeheartedly recommend it. I was comfortable, safe, and well located for my desired activity. The trains, buses, and car service are close if you prefer not to walk. Annette, and her mother, Haydee, are lovely and accommodating. Thank you!

  • besides being a bit cold in the morning, everything else was great! I stayed here for a little over a week with my cousin. We had a great time there, Annette and her mother Haydee were very kind and great hosts. It really felt like home and I felt like I didnt wanna leave on the day we had to check out. I'd return for another stay if my cousin comes to NYC again! thank you for your great hospitality!!

  • A very quiet and safe place in a nice residential street in Brooklyn. Subway station to Manhattan is 10 min walking distance, train takes about 30 Min downtown. Good WIFI, queen size bed. Haydee - Annettes mother - lives downstairs and is very helpful and likable.

  • Tastefully and well furnitured apartment in a great neighborhood. Easy to reach with express-metro which will lead you to Manhattan in an acceptable time.

  • This was a lovely apartment in Brooklyn. As tourists, it had everything we needed. It was clean, spacious, and the bed was extremely comfortable!

    As others have said - it is a little far out from Manhatten, but trains are easy and frequent.

    Thanks again to Annette and her mother for looking after us during our stay!

  • Wir waren 5 Tage in der Wohnung von Annettes Mutter. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, alles war sauber und sehr entspannt. Zur Innenstadt nach Manhatten fuhr man ca. 30 Minuten. Auf Rückfrage hin bekamen wir neue Handtücher und Annettes Mutter war sehr nett.

When I'm not planning an event or decorating, I love to sit back, relax and take life in. My home is my sanctuary, and I try to make it feel that way for others. Not pretentious or stuffy, just comfortable and welcoming - so if you're planning a trip to Brooklyn and need a place to stay that will feel like a home away from home, shoot me an e-mail. Coming Next Spring -- I will have a beautiful master suite available for rent - with small seating area, queen size bed, private dual sink master bath with tub and a lovely private deck for you to sit and enjoy a morning cup of coffee or some star gazing at night!
