The main bathroom is upstairs next to the two bedrooms and has a shower / bathtub combo and the half bath is on the main floor which also has a washer & dryer.


Our huge (by NYC standards) kitchen has a dishwasher, stovetop/oven, microwave, fridge, toaster over, kitchen aid, juicer, rice cooker, an island with bar stools and a small table with chairs.

Living Room:

Our living room has a couch and a futon as well as a record player and a flat screen TV with Apple TV.. Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime etc..


There is also a covered porch off the kitchen with stairs down to a private back yard.

Guest access

You will have access to the main house with a private entrance, two bedrooms, 1.5 baths, kitchen, living room and backyard.

We sometimes stay in the garden apartment when we have guests but there is a seperate entrance. The only potential "shared" space would be the backyard.

Interaction with guests

We're happy to welcome you in person when we can and give you the run down of the space and the neighborhood. We have a keyless entry for when we're not available and/or late arrivals.

We are always available by phone / text / email for any questions about the house or recommendations in the neighborhood or otherwise.

The neighborhood

Gowanus is very safe & family friendly. It has quickly become a destination for music, arts, food and nightlife.

There are multiple restaurants in the immediate area including Bar Tano, Table 87 and Fletcher's BBQ. They offer a variety of different food options and atmosphere.

Lowlands, Lucey's Lounge and The Bell House are all a short walk if you'd like to experience the local bar scene.

Four & Twenty Blackbirds is an excellent Pie Shop / Bakery / Coffee spot.

Acupuncture & massage is right around the corner at Brooklyn Acupuncture Project and Rainforest Relaxation Center.

The new Whole Foods Market on 3rd Ave / 3rd St is less than a 10 min walk!

If you'd like to explore other close by Brooklyn neighborhoods you can easily walk to Red Hook, Carroll Garden's and Park Slope. Prospect Park is a 15-20 min walk away and offers one of the best places in New York City to exercise, picnic or just relax.

Other questions about the neighborhood? Just hit "contact me" and ask!

Getting around

If you want to head into Manhattan or other parts of Brooklyn by subway the F/G/R trains at 4th Ave / 9th St. are less than a 5 min walk away! You can very easily get to the Lower East Side, Soho, Union Square, Williamsburg, Greenpoint and pretty much anywhere else you'd likely wanna go.

If you prefer a private car we can leave you a list of local car services in the neighborhood that will take you anywhere in the city.

Insanely beautiful house! Huge by NYC standards, quiet, and comfortable and well-appointed. Parking was super easy. Communication was perfect. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

Our stay at Chateau Gowanus was perfect. The home is very spacious with room for our entire family of 5. It was very clean and had everything we needed. I want to add that the bathroom picture on here is outdated; they have remodeled that bathroom beautifully. The neighborhood is such a nice mix of residential and commercial buildings. Walking around we would pass anything from tree-lined streets of brownstones to busy retail shops. Everywhere we went felt very safe. We could have stayed within a handful of blocks and had everything we needed. However, there are 3 subway lines within a couple blocks that make it very easy to get anywhere in the city. Check in and check out were quick and easy. Chris and Samantha were very welcoming, offering suggestions for places to go in the neighborhood and checking in periodically to make sure we had everything we needed. Lastly, thank you Mason for sharing his books and toys. Our kids really enjoyed having those available. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and will return every time we visit New York.

It was a very comfortable place! This was our first experience with an Airbnb so we weren't really sure what to expect, it all worked out very well! The house was really nice and clean, we felt right at home and loved having all the amenities of home! The kitchen was great and well equipped!! The location was good for what we were doing..we were able to walk many places. The area was a mix of residential and industrial so there was some noise that we weren't expecting.

My friends and I came up for spring break and had a fantastic time. The house is really lovely with a huge kitchen and plenty of room for everyone. It's about a 5-10 minute walk away from two metro stations, and 20-30 minutes ride to Manhattan (super easy, no transfers necessary). There's a Whole Foods a few blocks away and plenty of little restaurants (and watering holes) in the area. Best of all, Christopher and Samantha were very thoughtful hosts. We really enjoyed our stay and would be back in a heartbeat!
