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 were very happy with our stay at Alisons home. The apartment was clean, well-equiped and charming.
The rooms were spacious and comfortable.
The neighborhood felt safe and reasonably quiet and we slept very well.
It is an easy location to get to Manhattan using the transit but not close enough to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge so we ended up taking more cabs than we had expected.
I would recommend this to couples who are adventurous and who like nostalgia and a well-worn charming atmosphere.
Basement apartment fully met our expectations, stylish interior, typical mixed neighborhood, easy to get downtown Manhattan. Everything arranged to feel at home from the start.
Sadly we only stayed in Alison's adorable and spacious apartment for about 10 hours! It was very clean and very well organized (loved the guidebook). I would make a small comment that the apartment was a bit stuffy upon arrival but after turning the fan provided on it was a little better (still a bit warm) but the neighborhood was comfortable and close to the subway. Wish we could have stayed longer!
