About This Listing
One bedroom apartment located in a prewar carriage house located in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn. Apartment is furnished with modern decor and has all amenities essential to make the guests stay comfortable and memorable. This apartment is near public transportation ( the c and g trains) connecting the guests to Manhattan within twenty minutes. The Brooklyn Academy of Music as well as the Brooklyn Flea Market, the Farmer's Market, Fort Greene Park, Prospect Park and a multitude of interesting shops and restaurants are
a stone's throw away. Guests love the proximity to Manhattan but also fall in love with the charm and flavor of the Brooklyn neighborhood. The streets are tree-lined with many beautifiul stunning brownstones and mini-mansions that are still owned by single families. One of the most amazing days is the day of the New York Marathon, when neighbors and tourists all gather to cheer the runners on. The parks are also always filled with wonderful activities for people of all ages.
Guests are expected to enjoy the space and leave it as they found it, The cleaning of course will be done by the housekeeper.
Claire was great from the moment I made the reservations. She responded to my questions promptly, and made me feel like no question was unimportant! We loved the apartment - it was perfect for the two of us. Roomy, and all we could want. There were even amenities should we have needed them! I made coffee (that Claire provided) in the morning before venturing out exploring the town. The apartment was just like the pictures, and we loved the quiet neighborhood. It's not hard getting to the subway, and finding your way around. We had a great time in Brooklyn and Manhattan thanks to our great 'carriage house apartment'! I'd definitely stay here again!
I don't always get to welcome my guests but this time I was around and I was happy that I was. These ladies felt like old friends to me......so kind and pleasant. They thanked me for every little thing. Truly a nice moment for me in my crazy day. I look forward to them visiting again.!!!
We used the carriage house for a few days as a central location leading up to my wedding. We stored stuff there and made bouquets there and had people over for breakfast and it was perfect for everything. My bridesmaids and my mom and I stayed there and at one point we had 5 people staying there at night and Claire provided an air mattress and sheets. Claire was super responsive and accommodating. The apartment was huge as nyc apartments go with lots of light and a large kitchen. Very clean too. We had a great stay!
Claire’s apartment was exactly as advertised: sunny, spacious, comfortable and clean. It is in a lovely neighborhood, right across from a school playground and within easy walking distance of the subway, lots of great restaurants and Fort Greene Park. Claire was easy to work with and very helpful both prior to and during our stay. We would definitely stay here again!
The house was exactly as promised. Very quiet and clean. It was perfect for my parents who were visiting from out of town. Ft. Greene is a lovely place to stay.
I'm great your parents enjoyed the space. I'm sorry they had trouble with the tv and the coffee pot. We have since replaced it and written instructions for the tv. . Had I known we could have replaced it during their stay. The soap was also in the drawer in the hallway. We don't buy individual bars but small bottles for people to use as needed and then throw away. I do appreciate the feedback because it helps me to improve upon what we're providing and make it better for the next guest. I only wish that I could have resolved those issues for your parents when they were here. It would have been a very easy thing to do. Best wishes to you and your family.
Nice apartment that was according to the description. Very nice neighborhood, even used the aircon in the apartment. we were with 4 people, enough amenities to accommodate us.
Nos hospedamos con mi familia en la casa de Claire y resultó una experiencia extraordinaria.
La casa es tal como se la ve en las fotos, amplia, confortable, muy equipada, limpia y ubicada en una zona residencial de Brooklyn.
Abundan toallas y ropa de cama. Las sábanas merecen un comentario aparte. Mas sedosas que las de un hotel.
La propiedad esta a dos cuadras del metro linea C que te lleva en pocos minutos a Manhattan.
La zona es muy segura, volvíamos con dos chicos en metro a las 2 ó 3 de la mañana sin ningún inconveniente.
Si bien se trata de un área residencial, en la misma cuadra hay un restaurante, a 1 cuadra hay un supermercado muy bien equipado y un lugar para ordenar pizza.
Caminando 2 ó 3 cuadras ya se sale a una avenida más comercial con variedad de locales.
Si se desea ir a ver un partido de la NBA, el estadio de los Brooklyns Net esta a unas pocas cuadras y el recorrido se puede realizar a pie.
Los dias sabados (chequear) a 2 cuadras funciona el Mercado Flea de Fort Green, muy interesante para hacer una visita.
Claire resultó ser una cálida huesped, llegamos antes del horario del check inn y nos permitió dejar el equipaje en una oficina contigua. Además, habla español.
Sin duda lo recomendamos y volveremos en otro viaje a NYC !!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Claire's well-equipped, comfortable, and spacious apartment, and we hope to return soon!

About the Host, Claire
One of the things I enjoy the most is meeting people.. When I am not working as an attorney I spend a lot of my time cooking, baking and feeding people. I'm originally from New Orleans, the mecca of hospitality...Down there people have a way of welcoming strangers into their homes and feeling that it's their fault if the person doesn''t have a great time. I love my Clinton Hill neighborhood because in alot of ways people's attitudes about what is important mirrors that of my native hometown. LAISSEZ LE BON TEMPS ROULEZ. And may God help you, if you don't understand.
