Old world charm with modern convenience in an awesome neighborhood.
Why stay in a hotel when you can be in a fabulous renovated garden level (no garden access) floor-through with brownstone charm and modern convenience? The apartment has 1 bedroom and 1 bath and a spacious open plan kitchen, dining and living area complete with an eat-at granite counter. There is a queen size bed (no sofa bed) so it is perfect for a couple.
The apartment has a separate entrance in a 3 story private home. Our family lives on the 2nd and 3rd floors directly above the rental unit and we have 3 children and children can be noisy. Please be aware, that as in most brownstones, noise travels. If you are looking to sleep in past 8am this is not the place for you.
The apartment is available when our extended family is not in town, so while the apartment is fully furnished it is free of personal clutter. You will be supplied with linens, towels and enjoy the use of top of the line stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher and microwave. WiFi, A/C and cable TV are included.
Carroll Gardens is one of NYC's top destinations. This wonderful neighborhood has a great vibe - with hip restaurants, parks, coffee shops and plenty of one-of-a-kind shops. There are also conveniences such as late night delis, laundry mats, dry cleaners and even a bike rental shop within a couple blocks.
The apartment is a short walk from the Carroll Street stop on the F line making it just minutes by subway to downtown Manhattan. It is also walking distance from other great neighborhoods in Brooklyn such as Park Slope, Brooklyn Heights, Dumbo and the new Greenway down by the water.
Interaction with Guests
Our family lives on the upper 2 floors of the house so we are present in the event we are needed. Our approach is to allow our guests to enjoy their stay on their own.
This apartment is very well maintained. It is the ground floor of our home. Ideal guests will care for this apartment as they would their own home.
Special permission required for parties of 8 or more. Strict no pets or smoking policy. Only guests on with name on reservation permitted to stay the night.
We unfortunately never got to meet Antoinette, but communication with her was great. The apartment was exactly as shown and was spotless. The neighborhood is amazing- close to subway and shops. When we visit next, I would absolutely book here again.
Apartment represented as pictured. Great location, safe to walk alone at night and quiet. We were a 6 minute walk from our son's condo so very convenient for our stay. Apartment was clean and private.
Thank you, Antoinette. It was a great place for us to stay. We really enjoy the Carroll Garden area.
The apt is very warm and cozy. It has enough in the kitchen to do some cooking and eating in. The location was perfect for walking to restaurants, shops, and the subway. This is our #1 place to stay in Carroll Gardens. Thanks, Carol
Just completed my second stay within two weeks. Planning to be back again in March. That says it all, doesn't it? Lovely place. Easy access to all in the area. Excellent host.
Lovely is completely accurate. Private, comfortable and charming as well. The heated bathroom floor is such a very nice plus, esp. this very cold January. This is a terrific place just a short walk from the Court and Smith streets shopping and dining areas.
This apartment is perfect in every way. Beautifully renovated inside and entry, lovely decor, comfortable bed, great storage, and the location is on a quiet street near the best restaurants in Brooklyn. We ran through Brooklyn Bridge park along the river and even over the bridge into Manhattan from the front door. Antoinette was responsive and answered all of our questions. We will book this one again.
Although we never personally met our host, Antoinette was responsive to any questions we sent her. Description of the property was accurate. The apt was very clean and kitchen eating area were very nice. As mentioned on other reviews we did hear small children running on the floor above us in the morning. It was quiet in the evenings. The apt was on a quiet street and about a five min walk to restaurants and 10 min walk to subway. We would definitely stay there in the future
