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.
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!
The apartment was a good size and conveniently located near subway stations that took us easily in to manhattan.
Claire was very accessible and responded quickly to our needs. The apartment was great. Very clean and spacious with a well-equipped kitchen. Very convenient to the Clinton Hill/Fort Greene areas as well as the subway line.
We didn't meet Claire or her team, but the apartment was very clean, well-equipped, comfortable and close to public transport. We really enjoyed our stay.
It is excellent value for money and I would definitely recommend it if you're looking for something a little alternative away from the hustle and noise of Manhattan.
My sister and I stayed at Claire’s Carriage House Apt. the nights of March 6 and 7. Upon our arrival, we were greeted cordially by Claire and her staff, shown up to the Apt., and given the keys.
Although it was around noon, Claire was nice enough to let us move into the Apt., mostly just to drop off our bags, as it was all ready to go anyway. (And Claire even offered to help carry a bag up.)
As you have already read in other reviews, this apartment is secure, clean as a whistle, very spacious, fully equipped, and perfectly located in Brooklyn. If you are in Brooklyn on business or perhaps (like us!) have family in Brooklyn, this is the place to stay. (Indeed, my niece was precisely ONE BLOCK away; what a pleasant surprise for all of us!)
The next time I’m in Brooklyn, I would not hesitate to stay at the Carriage House Apartment again.
Our host Claire greeted us at the apartment and couldn't have been more welcoming on the cold and frosty day we checked in. The apartment is very charming, roomy and comfortable and well equipped. Our thirteen year old son enjoyed the sofa bed in front of the TV. Only hiccup was a malfunctioning heating system but Claire immediately got us space heater's while she had the mechanic/ electrician come in on Saturday and had it fixed immediately. The bed in the bedroom is very comfy also with lovely bed linens. Fantastic area also and perfect for us because we were there to see our daughters thesis exhibition at Pratt Institute which is just a few blocks away- a beautiful historic campus nearby.
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.
