The Space

NOTE: This apartment is NOT an illegal sublet like so many NY rental apartments! Supporting proof for a Class B townhouse is available.
Top three floors of a brand new architect built Brooklyn townhouse, with a large rooftop terrace and multiple balconies, under 5 minutes walking to BAM, the new Barclay Center for the Brooklyn Nets basketball, other sports and entertainment events, all major subway lines, and the Long Island Railroad to the Hamptons... The terrace with views of rooftops and trees is enchanting and has a large BBQ grill and table which seats six/eight people. Another smaller table for four can be used there as well for children. 3 bedrooms with double beds (one king, one queen, one full), 2.5 baths, balconies outside every bedroom, open plan kitchen-dining-living room, small office with single sleep-chair. 1 bedroom comes complete with toys, children's books, etc. The apartment can accommodate 2 people in each double bed, as well as a single person in the office/bedroom on a pull out chairbed for a total of 7 people. It is possible to add extra airbeds for 4 extra persons, for a total of 11 or 12 people. Completely furnished with imported luxury European furniture, radiant heat in the floors, new appliances including washer/dryer, dishwasher, and Jacuzzi bathtub; central air conditioning and heating with remote control, fast WiFi, stereo & flat screen LCD cable TV/DVD with many available for borrow. The premises are protected with a motion detector security alarm system from ADT, door gates and video intercom. Quiet street, family neighborhood, near parks, supermarkets, a wide spectrum of shopping options and fine restaurants. Enjoy why Park Slope was called New York's best neighborhood. A stroll down 5th avenue gives you the impression of being in a small town! 12 minutes to Manhattan, Chinatown, Wall Street, World Trade Center memorial, and 20 minutes to Times Square by subway.
5 minute walk to the Long Island Railroad with access to the Hamptons, Montauk, Fire Island, Jones Beach, etc.
Not suitable for receptions of any kind!
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VISITORS: The property is a in a two-family home. As such it is NOT subject to the new New York law, signed by the Governor of NY State in 2011, which prohibits the short-term rental of housing units. That law only applies to buildings, such as every apartment building in NYC, containing 3 or more 'dwelling units' (i.e., separate apartments). This home is not covered by this law because it is in a two family townhouse, and therefore the rental is completely legal. You may therefore be assured that renting will not be in violation of any laws and that you are at no risk of being unable to occupy the premises because the authorities have taken legal action against the property owner.
Deals are available for longer term stays.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We arrived in Brooklyn for my sons wedding with five adults and five children. We were greeted by Antonio, the manager for the property, and he couldn't have been more welcoming! The house is gorgeous! It is beautiful and very family friendly at the same time! We read to the kids each night from the children's books left by Yves son, and enjoyed the lovely large kitchen and living space! All in all, it was a PERFECT place for us, and the communication and service by Antonio, exceptional!

  • What a great place! We needed a lot of space with 3 kids and Yves apartment was perfect and in great condition. We bopped around Brooklyn and Manhattan quite a bit, so being a block away from essentially all major subways was a huge plus.

    There was also a ton of info left on how to use the features in the apartment as well as info on the neighborhood that was very useful. Thanks!!!

    We would highly recommend to anyone contemplating a trip to Brooklyn.

  • Yves, et Antonio son secrétaire, sont des hôtes charmants et très sympathiques, qui ont le souci de rendre le séjour facile et agréable pour leurs locataires.
    L'appartement est tout simplement exceptionnel à tout point de vue : agencement, décoration, terrasses et vues sur la ville... Surtout, sa situation est idéale pour être au calme et découvrir Brooklyn tout en étant en capacité d'aller à Manhattan en 15 minutes, sans jamais avoir à changer de ligne quelque soit l'endroit de destination, tant il y a des lignes de métro qui passent à Atlantic Avenue Station. Nous étions 6 amis répartis en 4 chambres et tout ce qui était dans le descriptif s'est avéré être au rendez-vous lors de la découverte de l'appartement.
    Exceptional place to visit New - York ! Very friendly people to help you to facilitate your journey. No hesitation : it's the place to book !

  • This rental has got our warmest recommendations.
    First: communication with Yves and his representative was easy and seamless. We were 5 adults and a child 1.5 years old - a child's bed and high chair was provided upon request - no problem. All information given was exact and complete. Antonio was attentive, informative and service minded. A manual for all practical issues + shops, restaurants, communications, assistance etc. is provided.
    The rental is nicely furnished, had all the amenities needed (and in a very good condition), quiet and good sleep quality. And lots of space. Sorry we could not use the terraces (it was too cold - even snow in April) - that is an extra treat when weather allows. The rental is even better than it looks on the airbnb site. if you are physically disabled, you should take into consideration that there are quite a few steps, both inside and outside.
    Last: it was my first time staying in Brooklyn and I hope it will not be the last. Very nice neighbourhood, lots of small wonderful shops and all sorts of restaurants. Barclay center subway is close to the rental. In other words: Manhattan downtown is just 1 stop away. So why pay more for staying in an expensive Manhattan hotel?
    But take the opportunity to explore what Brooklyn has to offer.

  • Yves home was magnificent. Location is very convenient to Barclay's Center, subway, and restaurants on 5th Ave. The rooms were well furnished and amenities were exactly as expected. The home and neighborhood are charming and surprisingly quiet at night. Antonio, Yves agent, was a pleasure to work with and thoughtfully called midway through our stay to check on us.

    Wasn't a problem for our group but there are lots of stairs so elderly or those with less mobility might steer clear.

  • I have just stayed one week in Yves Abel's house together with three friends. A perfect place to stay. The house offers lots of space and light, nice sofa area, as well as well equipped bath rooms and kitchen.
    The location is great - close to very good restaurants and cafes and small shops. There are balconies and terraces to nearly all rooms - not so useful in a snowy February but perfect for a spring or summer vacation.
    We all agree - we would like to come back and will definitely recommend this house to others.
    Best regards

  • I rented this apartment for family members who were coming to Brooklyn for my wedding. It was perfect! The location is great, the house is spotless and beautifully decorated, and Yves and Antonio were super organized and very responsive to all of my questions.

  • We rented Yves's place for my Canadian family visiting for a week to celebrate an early Christmas. It could not have been more perfect for them. Such a beautiful home, with lovely bedrooms and a great open concept kitchen/living room, perfect for big dinners and hanging out. The location is fantastic as well, right in the heart of it all. The place was spotless and had everything we could have needed in the way of bedding, towels, cookware, and such. Antonio, who manages the property and oversaw our arrival and departure, was delightful and made sure we were well set up. He also phoned to let us know that someone would shovel the steps and sidewalk upon the first snowfall. Absolutely no complaints, it was a perfect experience. Thanks!

  • Beautiful home, well equipped and conveniently located. We had a wonderful holiday stay with family and friends and plan to return to Yves lovely home in warmer weather when we can enjoy the outdoor areas and view.

  • Merci à Antonio et Yves pour ce très beau séjour. La maison est vraiment superbe, très fonctionnelle et l'équipement (lit, salle de bain, électroménager) est de qualité. La proximité des transports est également un gros plus. Nous avons également apprécié les commerces (restaurant, supermarché) de la 5eme avenue de Brooklyn toute proche.

    N'hésitez pas, cette location est parfaite. ;-)
