Enjoy one of brownstone Brooklyn's finest neighborhoods in our spacious one-bedroom apartment. The architecture is very easy on the eyes and the food will have you ready to transfer everything you belong to Brooklyn (it did for us!). We're a two minute walk away from the busy Dekalb Avenue full of NYC restaurant gems. The BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) and Fort Greene Park are each around ten minute walk. Pratt University is a five minute walk. Barclay's Center is about a 10 minute walk as well. There's tons to do and plenty to eat around these parts.
TRANSPORTATION/METRO: The G train is on our our block. The C is about a 5 minute walk and will take you into Manhattan (G to the L might be quicker!). The B and D are a 10-15 minute walk and are express trains to Manhattan. Walk to Barclay's Center (15 minutes) for lines RND2345B7Q. Taxis are easy to get and cost around $20 to downtown Manhattan. NEW: There are three CitiBike stations within two blocks.
WARNING: This is a four-story walkup!!
WEEKEND BONUS: The Brooklyn Flea (Saturdays) is a block away and offers an amazing array of food vendors (lobster rolls, Korean hotdogs, fresh oysters, Dough doughnuts & more) to go along with a fine collection of overpriced used goods and decent clothing options. (from March until Thanksgiving)
AMENITIES: Futon: sleeps two. King size bed can fit 3! Parking = street, but easy. WIFI = included. Flatscreen with Apple TV. Air conditioning = yes.
MIke was a great host and his apt was perfect for our needs. His video tour of his home was informative and answered a lot of questions. We were a family of 4 and we found the place to be totally accommodating and comfortable. The king sized bed helped! The area of Brooklyn is also a perk -- right on the G train and also close to Prospect Park, where I took a run both days we were there. So, yes, Mike's place was super and we recommend it strongly.
This was my first airbnb experience and I hope it hasn't spoiled me for others. My girlfriend and my two kids and I gathered at Mike's and Melissa's place over the 2013 Christmas holidays and we had an excellent time. The place was cosy - and full of charm. We cooked every night. The neighborhood wasn't far from where I used to live (I recently moved from Brooklyn to L.A. - so this was a great home-coming) and is beyond awesome. Brooklyn is the best!!!!
Honestly, I can't speak highly enough of Mike and Melissa - or their place. They opened up everything in their kitchen to us - even left out a bottle of wine for us. Brooklyn hospitality at its best! One of the best holidays I've had.
We really enjoyed our stay at Mike's Clinton Hill apartment. His hospitality was outstanding, offering his home to our family for a long weekend. The location is fabulous with access to the subway for Brooklyn and Manhattan close by. The neighborhood offers great restaurants and stores close by when you take advantage of Fort Greene Park.
We were quite comfortable with plenty of room to sleep four and relax when we weren't on the go. There is a big kitchen area (for New York) if you need it, and once it got hot, the shower was terrific. Thumbs up! Thanks, Mike.
Wonderful stay...lovely, bright (email hidden)ry comfortable..thanks to Mike and Melissa..highly reccomend
My wife and I had a great experience at Mike's apartment during our recent weekend visiting family there. The apartment is very roomy, extremely clean and comfortable. We definitely will try to stay there again. Mike was very accommodating and helpful and it seemed to really matter to him that we felt welcomed and comfortable. The orientation video and the gifted bottle of wine were very classy touches. We couldn't have been happier with our Airbnb choice.
We really enjoyed our stay at Mike's and Melissa's apartment. The apartment was clean and it had huge windows overlooking a quiet and beautiful street. It was the perfect place to come back to after a long day walking around the city. Mike was available when we needed him and we appreciated that they left a bottle of Argentine wine for us to enjoy the first night. Thank you!! I look forward to coming back here soon!
We loved staying here. Mike was a great host and even left a short welcome video for us to watch. We really appreciated how considerate he was. Although we did not get to meet him, he still correcponded to make sure we has a smooth check in & out. We would definitely stay here again! :)
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
