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.
WHILE WE ALLOW 4 GUESTS, THERE IS ONLY 1 BEDROOM. IT HAS 1 QUEEN-SIZED BED & 1 FULL-SIZED FUTON.
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!

WE LOVE THIS APARTMENT!!! We live nearby and have stayed here a few times, so easy! So clean! Great hosts!! Thanks guys :-)
We had a great stay here! It made me wish I was there longer. My friend and I couldn't get over how cute it was! I totally recommend it!
Everything was exactly as we hoped: perfect location, awesome apartment and very attentive hosts. The apartment is really nice - lots of cool antiques (even a neat old stereoscope), the kitchen was very nice with a lot of useful cooking equipment. Our visit was during the winter but the back yard looks like it would be awesome too.
Above all, you really got the feeling that the hosts have really thought about everything from the guest's perspective. A little guidebook is there when you arrive, letting you know just about everything you need to know (this was our first time using airbnb, so it was especially useful to us). Very good communication - before, during and after.
Thanks for a perfect stay! We truly felt welcome.
My husband and I had a great experience at the Dahl home. It was warm, cozy, and well kept. It felt like a Parisian flat, just lovely. Dane and Alison were responsive and clear in their expectations and how to get into the apartment. I highly recommend staying here if you have business in Brooklyn. A little piece of home in a very large city:)
The communication from the beginning of our signing up was fabulous. We knew where to go and how to get there. However, we weren't aware (maybe we didn't read it) that although there was a coffee pot there was no coffee. It was freezing in the morning and we were hoping to get warmed up before braving the weather. The suite is not exactly as described or pictured. Nice accommodations,spacious but not exactly chic. The beds were like nice futons not very comfortable. It was an expereince.
Alison and Dane's place is so wonderful. From the way it is set up down to the way it smells (smells so lovely!) I was thoroughly pleased with my entire experience. I had a few questions and Dane got back to me instantaneously every time; he even helped me gain access upon arrival. Just such a sweet, safe experience. I would and am staying here again with my wife - it was truly an authentic Brooklyn experience, guided by two wonderful hosts.
Great Neighborhood and description and pictures were accurate. Alison made us feel really welcomed and made sure to check on us. I would definitely recommend.

We are a husband and wife who work in fashion (she) and architectural salvage (him). We purchased our beautiful home in 2009 and really love the neighborhood of Clinton Hill. We live with our Shiba Inu dog on the top two floors of the brownstone.
