Experience the charm of Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn! A traditionally Italian-American neighborhood, it is now dotted with lovely boutiques, shops and cafes, and yet has retained many of its long-standing family run businesses.
Try the lard bread at Caputo's Bakery on the next block, or experience the best classic Italian sandwich at Esposito & Sons meat shop just two blocks over. Then stop in for an afternoon beer at the Alpine restaurant, Brooklyn Buschenshank, conveniently located on the ground floor. Please check my guidebook for more suggestions on other great neighborhood places!
The apartment is located in a building on a prime corner in quaint Carroll Gardens only two short blocks from the (F) subway. What was once a brothel in the '50s and '60s is now spacious but cozy 2 bedroom flat on the 3rd floor.
Upon entering the apartment you will walk into a beautiful, tranquil, and spacious living room with an open kitchen layout. Off the living and kitchen area there are two equally sized bedrooms, each with a window overlooking Court Street (one of the two main commercial streets). Original wood ceiling beams give charm to the space.
The apartment also features:
Two queen beds with white bedding
Bathroom with tub & shower
Fresh towels and linens
Utensils/pots for cooking
4-burner stove and oven
Heat and A/C
It is a 3 floor walk-up.
Please, no smoking and no pets.

Appartement très bien situé dans Caroll gardens, à 2pas de Smith St, animée.
Joli déco, appartement confortable quoique un peu bruyant.
Amy s'occupe de notre confort, le chauffage est tombé en panne et elle nous a installé de nombreux chauffages électriques immédiatement !
Très bonne adresse
Amy was a splendid host, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place was clean and well organized, and the location was superb. Amy really went above and beyond when our plans changed due to a flight cancellation, and I'm so grateful we picked a "cool" host when booking our stay in NYC :)
Amy is a great host, she checked in several times, left a pack and play set up for our two year old (I think), and left a bottle of wine and some fruit as a welcome gift.
The apartment is great as well. As a former resident of the neighborhood the location is ideal. The apartment was clean and cheerful. Amy has addressed heating issues by putting new space heaters everywhere and the stairs/entryway was clean with no bad smells per earlier reviews. I would stay here again and recommend the apartment to anyone visiting the area who wants to stay in Carroll Gardens. My only caveats would be do not stay here if you sensitive to noise (street and neighbor) you do not want to walk up stair (up two flights), you want a luxury bathroom and you require ample natural light. That said these are issues for most nyc apartments so I imagine most accept these as par for the course. I still would rather stay at Amy's over a hotel. Thanks Amy!
Amy was a gracious host and made us feel most welcome in this roomy 2 bedroom. It's a great location, and we loved the close proximity to all of the charms of the neighborhood. Great food, shopping, and quick access to the F/G trains make this a perfect spot for some time in Brooklyn. Amy was very communicative and took care of everything we needed while we were in town. We'll hope to stay here again.
Amy is a wonderful host, responding to my initial query within hours and checking in with me after our arrival to make sure we had gotten settled and everything was ok. The apartment is just as advertised -- clean, comfortable, in a great neighborhood, and convenient to Manhattan and other parts of Brooklyn.
We had a great time at Amy's place. Perfect location, great apartment with a lot of small details that make you feel like home. We had some problems with the heat during our stay and Amy was very helpful such as Angelo the person of the building. We had the same experience that some others travelers about the very strong smell once in a while coming from neighbors. Might be also more noisy in the summer because of the German bar downstairs. But all these are cities problems you can face everywhere!
As always, our experience staying at Amy's apt was excellent. Clean, convenient to trains, restaurants, grocers.
The perfect location for our needs.
Amazing apartment and space to stay in while visiting NY and Brooklyn. I used to live in the neighborhood and it was a treat to stay right on Court street in a nice open modern space.
We had a little trouble with the heating but the beds were very cozy so we managed just fine.
We loved our stay in this nice apartment in Carroll Gardens. The apartment is as it is shown in the photographs.
It is situated three stairs up (no lift), above a restaurant, so there are some smells from the kitchen, but nothing that bothered us.
The neighbourhood is very nice, lots of nice restaurants and grocery stores.
Amy is a very kind and helpful host, and easy to communicate with.
All in all; we highly recommend a stay here!
Amy and her apartment were absolutely wonderful! The place was super clean and cute. She was also extremely accommodating and helpful throughout our stay! Carroll Gardens is clean and quiet, and the F train was close and super quick to wherever we needed to be. Lots of great restaurants, shops, and grocery stores in walking distance as well. I would stay there again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it!
