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.
Ms. Wood accommodated our late evening arrival, and we were in touch by text or email during our stay. The rooms are a terrific value as compared to local hotels, and are clean and well appointed, very much as described online. My only suggestion to her, which she liked, was to consider installing an opaque window blind to mitigate early morning sunlight in the east-facing bedroom. A great breakfast/brunch can be had at Aita a half block up Waverly. This unit is an excellent option.
Claire was a patient, generous, and gracious host to my 70 year old parents! They were so comfortable and loved the location. Calire even checked on them when it snowed 8" and offered to get them groceries and cook them food!
She could not have been a kinder host and the carriage house is perfect. They will be coming back on their next visit.
I highly recommend the carriage house- it is just lovely.
The apartment is in an excellent location near the subway, wonderful Brooklyn restuarants, and 14 minute walk to the Beford Stuyvesant YMCA.
The apartment was always warm and cozy in spite of the below freezing snowy weather. The living room is light and bright due to the sunroof.
We would gladly stay here again as we visit Brooklyn very often.
Claire was very accomodating in making arrangements to leave us the keys.
We loved the coach house - it was really extremely comfortable, incredible clean and well styled throughout. It was also really lovely and warm which meant that we were imune from the "polar vortex" that hit last week in January!
The surrounding area was great, with lots of really good restaurants and diners etc.
It's a fantastic base to explore Brooklyn and NYC.
The whole administration (pick up key's) and communication from Clare was first class - especially her 100% accurate and concise NY subway advice.
Would have no hesitation in recoomending and will definitely use again!
This is a truly delightful carriage right in the heart of our daughters neighborhood. The home is spotless, well appointed and close to the train, restaurants and even a laundry! We would do this again in a New York minute!
Me and 3 friends stayed at the carriage house apartment for 2 nights over New Year's eve, We had a great experience, the apartment is very well located between two main subway lines and was a great place to base ourselves for the festivities. We would definitely recommend Claire's apartment and would stay here again when we visit NYC.
My son and I had a wonderful experience! Claire met us at check-in, showed us everything. The Carriage House apt was perfect--clean, bright, nicely furnished. The sleeper sofa had a really, really comfy mattress--so my son slept great. The location was ideal--just two blocks from my daughter's apt and had free on-street parking. Quiet, safe.
Only potential negative: the apt was warm, even though thermostat was turned down. But we just opened a window and all was fine.
Thanks, Claire--our first Airbnb experience was great!
Our third visit this year...the carriage house now feels like home and Claire is family! You won't find a more gracious and generous host!
Thank you, Claire.
The Carriage House Apartment was wonderful! We loved all the pictures in the stairwell and the art was just beautiful. Claire was an excellent hostess. I asked her about toiletries (since that had been mentioned in an earlier review) and she was happy to provide an awesome assortment. The sofabed was very comfortable and the location can't be beat. Thanks for an excellent week in Brooklyn!
Claire's coach house is a lovely apartment in a period property. It is very bright and spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the linens and towels are of good quality. Claire is a conscientious and thoughtful host. We were treated to her apple squares and breakfast supplies which made two delicious meals. When we had a bit of a problem with the heating Claire came with the plumber very promptly to fix it. The coach house is in a great neighborhood of historic houses with lovely local restaurants and food shopping nearby. We would happily come and stay again.
