Pratt Institute, Fort Greene Park, various cafés, bars, restaurants, grocery stores & other amenities such as dry cleaning, pharmacies, & the new Citibike Share station (where you can rent a bicycle with the swipe of a credit card) are all just as close.
A longer walk or bike ride will take you to the Brooklyn Museum, Prospect Park, The Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, the Brooklyn Flea (Market on Saturdays), The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) as well as some of Brooklyn's historic churches & other sites.
WE PRE-APPROVE MANY INTERESTED PARTIES AT THE SAME TIME, SO THE FIRST TO BOOK THE RENTAL GETS IT.

Guests will have access to the entire apartment, the washer/dryer in the hallway, & exclusive access to the backyard.
Interaction with Guests
We live in the apartment upstairs & may or may not be home during your stay.
We love Clinton Hill for its historic charm, the accessibility to Manhattan, its proximity to the more commercial areas of Ft. Greene & Prospect Heights, & for the relative peace it affords us from the bustle of the city!

Very convenient place to stay for going every day downtown NewYork. The apartment is quite large for 3-4 people, but kitchen tools needs to be increased and the plumbing to be modernized.
Me and my girlfriend stayed here to get out of town for our anniversary. It was a perfect private spot in the middle of a great neighborhood. In addition to Alison's awesome dinner recommendation, we found two great bars and an incredible breakfast spot all less then a ten minute walk away. The next morning grabbing the train into Manhattan was just as easy, with the subway stop only a few blocks down the street. I would definitely stay here again
We had another great weekend in Clinton Hill thanks to this perfect little apartment! It's our second time staying here & certainly won't be our last! Alison & Dale are very accommodating & communication was easy & fast. We recommend this spot to all our friends headed to BK!
We were three females under 30 travelling together and I would like to emphasise we felt very unsafe when coming home later at night( i.e 10-12pm), with an incident on the sidewalk outside of the closest subway station, my friend was forcefully shoved, adding to our nervousness. We put this down to being travellers until we had 2 taxi drivers and 2 Brooklyn locals (on the subway) express concern as to the area we were staying. Whilst Alison and her husband were very friendly and responsive and the apartment clean and tidy, I would not recommend you stay there.
We stayed at the apartment the week before July 4th. We were visiting our son who lives very close. It is very nice and in a safe neighborhood. We had no problem getting into the apartment. Everything was as described. The bed was very comfortable. This is a great location. The subway is close. You can get to Manhattan in 20- 30 minutes. There are many good restaurants close by. We will definitely come back.
This apartment was amazing! it was clean, spacious and filled with everything someone needs to fell comfortable. Loved the neighborhood and got an added bonus when I found a Gluten Free Bakery and had dinner at Romans. Alison even gave me pointers on where to shop and was super friendly. This will be my first pick overtime i head to Brooklyn.
We had a great time at Allison's apt. She happened to be on the street when we arrived and let us in. I was with my 3 kids, teens, and truly enjoyed the apt. The neighborhood is a far cry from it's past. It is hip, friendly and you could want for nothing. I loved the ceiling and comfortable kitchen. It took me back in time while still being clean and modern.
