About this listing
NOTE: This apartment is NOT an illegal sublet like so many NY rental apartments! Supporting proof for a Class B townhouse is available.

It is possible to add extra airbeds for 4 extra persons, for a total of 11 or 12 people. There is also a top floor studio with a full bath and piano which I don't automatically offer as there is an unprotected mezzanine which kids like to climb onto.

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! This is a residential building with families and children.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VISITORS: The property is 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. Very early or late checkins and checkouts are subject to a 75$ fee.
All balconies and one terrace. BBQ on terrace.

Interaction with Guests
Often. I or my property manager usually call or email each guests during their stay to ensure they have everything they need.
The perfect balance between privacy and nature, and yet so close to all subways, restaurants and supermarkets. It is the perfect location!
Most convenient. It is easier to get anywhere for the Atlantic/ Barclay Center stop in. Brooklyn to any destination in Manhattan than actually being IN Manhattan. Most subway lines are a 3 minute walk from the apartment. In one stop on the D train. You are in Chinatown. In 10 minutes and three stops in downtown Manhattan near the ferries for Staten Island, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Grand Central Station and the Empire State Building is on a direct line on the 4/5 train in 20". Penn station also direct in 25". And you to home to a tree lined street with quiet families instead of traffic and fume clogged streets!
Other Things to Note
Charming restaurants are around the corner on 5th avenue. There's even a 3 star Michelin restaurant a 10 minute walk away. All forms of entertainment, sports, film, opera, concerts a 5" walk away at BAM, the Barclay Center, etc. Cute hipster bars everywhere with famous Brooklyn microbrewery beers. Sports bars also nearby. Parks nearby, the Brooklyn Museum and Botanical Garden close by. The perfect location!
No smoking, no pets, or parties and wedding receptions (or other reception parties). To use BBQ and jacuzzi bathtub, please consult with the person letting you in. Please be sure to understand security alarm system and to be respectful to works of art, furniture. Please report any breakages, and malfunctioning equipment immediately so they can be replaced before the next party arrives.
We stayed in Yves' amazing Brooklyn Apartment for 4 nights at the end of August. We were a party of 8 from England visiting USA for the first time. We found this apartment an ideal base us. The apartment itself was a great space, very clean and had all the amenities we needed. As we were a larger party with no small children, Yves was kind enough to give us access to the third floor, which had a further bathroom and terrace. The location was also great and just a couple of minutes walk to the subway which gave us a direct route into Manhatten. Tony, Yves' property manager, met us at the apartment. He was very nice and gave us a tour of the apartment and explained how things worked. He was always on hand to answer any of our questions during our stay. Overall, we would give this apartment our highest recommendation. Thank you Yves and Tony!
Appartement très agréable et tout à fait conforme aux photos et à la description donnée dans l'annonce. Sa localisation est vraiment optimale pour des touristes qui veulent être basés à Brooklyn : plusieurs lignes de métro accessibles au coin de la rue qui permettent d'accéder rapidement à plusieurs endroits de Manhattan mais l'appartement est en même temps situé dans une rue calme (appréciable d'avoir les deux..), proximité du supermarché "Path Mark" (avec fruits, légumes, pain...), quartier "Park Slope" à côté et accessible à pied (sympa !). Bref, nous avons passé un agréable séjour de 10 jours dans cet appartement particulièrement bien fait pour notre séjour avec nos 4 enfants (9 à 14 ans). Le manager, Tony, a été très réactif, agréable et arrangeant à tous points de vue. Yves, vous avez un très bel appartement ! Nous n'avons pas pu beaucoup profiter de la belle terrasse, car, pendant notre séjour, il a fait très chaud : mais, je peux confirmer que la climatisation fonctionne parfaitement.
Nous avons beaucoup appréciés notre séjour en famille. Le logement est tout à fait conforme à la description et aux photos, très proche d'une station de métro et le quartier super! l'appartement est vraiment très agréable, bien équipé, la clim efficace..., la literie de qualité. Tony est vraiment très réactif et arrangeant.
Yves apartment was perfect for our group of 7. The apartment is located on a quiet street in Park Slope. Plenty of room, very comfortably furnished. We really enjoyed the balconies and terrace, as well as the well equipped kitchen. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to visit Brooklyn!
Tony, who is Yves property manager, was welcoming and easily reachable to answer questions throughout our 5 week stay in Brooklyn. The apartment was lovely and conveniently located very close to subway station to allow for easy commuting in and out of Manhattan. Very comfortable accommodations with full kitchen and washer/dryer and terraces to enjoy the outdoors.
Our family and close friends were in Brooklyn for my son's wedding and a family vacation. My daughter and I arrived first and were welcomed by Tony who was very gracious, gave us a tour of the house. This home is beautiful and in a great location minutes from Barclay center, subway, shops and restaurants, and 20-30 minutes from Prospect Park and Pier 5. We enjoyed the generous living space, balconies, kitchen, and the bedrooms and baths fit our needs perfectly.
Our family had a wonderful week long stay in Yves' home. It's a fantastic, extremely well-equipped property and the location is absolutely unbeatable. Tony was very accommodating and helpful with both our arrival and departure. Highly recommended for families traveling to the area. The other reviews are spot-on.
