The Space

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
Hair dryer
Heat and A/C

It is a 3 floor walk-up.
Please, no smoking and no pets.

The F/G train at Carroll Street is a 5 minute walk.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Excellent welcoming at the flat (flowers, good smell), very clean flat.
    We were here with children and they enjoyed the place to stay.
    Court street is quite noisy but very convenient as all shops required are here (wonderful places to brunch close to the flat and nails shops great for the girls !).
    We had a very nice stay at Amy's flat : she is reactive for all questions and informations and agreed to leave longer the suitcases before leaving.
    We highly recommand Amy's flat !

  • Wunderschönes, modern eingerichtetes Appartement.Sehr guter Service und nette Hilfe in der Kneipe im Erdgeschoss. In der Nachbarschaft gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und super Ausgehmöglichkeiten. Der Metroanschluss nach Manhatten ohne Umsteigen zu allen wichtigen Anschlussstellen in 5 Minuten fußläufig erreichbar.
    Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt... und empfehlen die Unterkunft an Freunde weiter oder kommen selber wieder :-)))

  • Contacts avec Amy très faciles et très rapides. Amy a été remarquable quant à notre arrivée décalée de 24h suite à l'annulation d'un vol.
    Appartement très bien agencé et propre.
    Quartier tranquille très agréable après l'agitation de Manhattan, plein de boutiques et de restaurants.

  • I rent Amy's 2 bedroom apt quite often and I can always count on it being clean, and well cared for. If there are ever any unexpected issues that arise, Amy takes care of them immediately.
    Excellent location to any and everything. No matter how often we're in town walking around Cobble Hill is always a pleasant experience. Great area to eat, visit and live!

  • 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.
