The Space

Perfect for a small family! Our house is located steps from a playground on a quiet block in one of the best neighborhoods in Brooklyn... Never heard of Gowanus? Get familiar, it's the place to be.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed and the 2nd bedroom is setup as a nursery with a twin bed, crib and changing table. (We can also provide a twin air mattress to put on the floor) Both bedrooms have ceiling fans and window air conditioners.

Upstairs, the master bathroom has a shower / bathtub and the half bath downstairs has a washer / dryer.

Our huge (by NYC standards) kitchen has a dishwasher, juicer, kitchen aid, toaster oven, various coffee making devices, stovetop/oven, microwave, fridge, an island with bar stools and a table with chairs.

There is also a covered porch off the kitchen with stairs down to a private back yard with charcoal grill for BBQ cooking and hanging out.

The Neighborhood

There's fun to be had without going very far. Gowanus is quickly becoming not only a great neighborhood to live / work but a destination as well.

Here are some local favorites...

Crop2Cup Coffee Shop is our morning spot for coffee / espresso beverages. They also get deliveries from Runner & Stone Bakery. Try the almond or ham & cheese croissant.

Lowlands, Lucy's Lounge and The Bell House are a short walk.

There are multiple restaurants in the immediate area as (website hidden) Tano, Table 87, Michael & Ping's and Fletcher's BBQ are all within a few blocks and offer a variety of different food options and atmosphere.

Four & Twenty Blackbirds is an excellent Pie Shop / Bakery. Yeah, I said pie...

If you're feeling tense acupuncture / massage is right around the corner at Brooklyn Acupuncture Project.

AND... The new Whole Foods Market on 3rd Ave and 3rd St is 8 blocks away (10 min walk) and is now OPEN!

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? Just hit "contact me" and ask!

Getting around

Want to head into Manhattan or other parts of Brooklyn by subway? The F/G/R trains at 4th Ave and 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.

Prefer a car? We can leave you a list of reliable car services in the neighborhood that will take you anywhere. Or just use Uber!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Chris was a great host, met us at the house and was always at hand to answer my numerous questions. The house was spacious, totally family friendly with all the things we needed for our 9 month old, so it was truly like a home away from home. The house is close to the subway and not too far from a gorgeous park and really easy/quick to get into (email hidden)ce neighborhood too. We had a very pleasant and enjoyable stay at their house. Thanks for letting us stay, and for all your hospitality.

  • Chris & Samantha's apartment was the perfect setting for our first trip with our 9 month old. They had a lovely nursery, play area, and even a stroller for us to use, which made our travel that much easier. Their place is beautiful and clean. It is a very nice size for New York standards - we had 4 adults and one child staying there and did not feel cramped our in need of more space. The neighborhood felt very safe and family friendly. There were plenty of great places to eat nearby and the subway station was only a couple blocks. Our hosts were easily accessible and left us with great suggestions for places to visit and enjoy. If you're traveling to Brooklyn - especially with young children in tow - this is the perfect place to stay!

  • We had a great time staying in this lovely house. As a family of four, with two young children, a child-friendly atmosphere was definitely a plus. No fragile objects, plus a great collection of children's books. The house is spacious and very nicely furnished. It was clean and had everything we needed. We were able to cook easily in the large and very nice kitchen, and it was great to have a washer and dryer!
    It was easy to get to the nearest subway and also to walk towards Brooklyn's 5th avenue and Park Slope. All in all, a very positive experience, recommended. We hope to stay again.

  • My family and I had a fantastic experience staying at Sam and Chris's home in Brooklyn. We can't say enough about how clean and comfortable the space was. The house was totally kid friendly which made traveling with a toddler and a 2nd grader so much easier. Chris was super accessible and quick to respond to questions and offer suggestions. We took them up on most of their suggestions and we were not disappointed. They are a quick walk to some killer play grounds, comic book stores, and fun stuff to do with the kids. We enjoyed hanging in the private back patio and cooking in their fully equipped kitchen. There is no doubt that we will try to stay here again next time we are in town.
