The Space

Huge chicly decorated 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom with large private garden/patio and eat-in kitchen on one of the most charming blocks in Brooklyn.

This art filled floor of a brownstone features a large bedroom with its own bathroom, a large living room with a flat screen TV with a Roku and basic cable and a large well equipped eat-in kitchen. Out the back door of the kitchen is the private sunfilled patio/back yard. Both bedroom and living room have ceiling fans and the bedroom has an air conditioner.

The bedroom has a comfortable queen bed as well as a cozy reading chair. The living room couch folds out to a full bed. All linens and towels are provided.

The apartment is right on the border between Prospect Heights and Crown Heights and a block away from the fabulous Franklin Ave strip which features such awesome restaurants as Mayfield, Barbinco and Dutch Boy Burger as well as some of the best bars around. It is also one block away from the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and the spectacular Brooklyn Museum as well as a short walking distance from Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Children's Museum and the bustling scene on Vanderbilt Ave.

It's a 3 minute walk to the 2/3 and 4/5 express trains at Franklin Ave. It's just one stop to the new Barclay's Center on the 4/5 and a quick 30 minute trip to Time's Square on the 2/3.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The apartment was spacious and airy, and we were very comfortable there. The location was perfect: a quiet street close to shops, restaurants, and the subway. Becky and Andrew were terrific hosts.

  • The apartment was functional and comfortable, the back yard space a bonus in the Brooklyn summer. Communication with hosts was perfect and provision for entrance worked well in their absence. The bottle of rose in the fridge was a fine gesture , we arrived very late , the information left about local eateries was very useful, Tom's Diner is an essential visit, simple Diner fair but a Brooklyn people watching institution. We loved the hood, a fantastic combination of local Brooklyn folk, very multicultural and very down to earth. The 1 and 2 tube entrance is just a very short walk and will take you anywhere you want to go.

  • A nice apartment on a quiet street, very pleasant and helpful hosts. I particularly enjoyed the patio.

  • Our family loved Becky and Andrew's place. It was spacious and stylish, and in a really interesting neighborhood that we enjoyed immensely. The apartment is quiet, and we availed ourself of the little patio on numerous occasions!

    Communication was easy-breezy lemon squeezy, and they responded quickly to any questions we had. Awesome. Also, two blocks from a really great subway line.

  • Becky and Andrew are great hosts. They made our organisation easier and gave us advice. Andrew welcomed us very nicely and even brought us an umbrella when we got out of the cab !
    The flat is nice, well equiped, spacious. We slept perfectly in the bed and the pull out couch (great linen !!!)
    We really liked the location and the neighbourhood, super safe and nice area, very cosmopolitan. Everything (grocery shops, restaurants, transports) is accessible within a short walking distance. The nearest subway station is an important one, you can catch several lines, express and local, which is super convenient. We came back a couple times late in the evening without any problem.
    Thanks again for interrupting your evening for coming to our rescue when we stupidly locked ourselves out in the backyard (which we were warned about a few hours before...;))
    If we ever have the chance to come back, we would definitely visit again.

  • My parents stayed with Becky and Andrew for two nights. Becky and Andrew were very communicative and accessible in the days leading up to my parents arrival and made everything extremely easy and friendly. The following is what my parents had to say:
    The apartment is in a lovely building on a very nice block. It’s close to major transportation, the Brooklyn Museum and the Botanic Gardens, as well as several good restaurants and coffee houses. The apartment is spacious with lots of daylight and distinct rooms for the kitchen, dining, living room, and bedroom. The map of local convenient stores and restaurants was very helpful.
    We greatly enjoyed our brief stay. It was a comfort for us to be so close to our family, and we thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.

  • We had a great weekend at Becky's place in Brooklyn. The apartment was large and comfortable with a great kitchen . Couch in living room very comfortable for our teenage granddaughter. The street is quiet and in a great neighborhood , truly residential but with lots of little restaurants and coffee shops and small groceries, so super convenient. Also near Prospect Park and the Brooklyn art museum and easy subway access. Becky and Andrew were great hosts, easily accessible. Hope to visit again .

  • We spent a lovely 10 days staying at Becky's apartment. We received a very friendly and warm welcome from Becky and Andrew and their apartment is just as in the pictures: it is very clean, spacious and well equipped. The subway is very close and, even with a stroller for our young son, allowed easy access to Manhattan and the rest of Brooklyn. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable!
