About This Listing
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 6:30 am 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.

When we walked into Antoinette's apartment we thought we'd won the Airbnb lottery! The place is exceptional and the photos don't do it justice. The apartment is huge and not just by New York standards. Beautiful hard wood floors, impeccably clean, and a fantastic location. I just hope she's not oversubscribed with more visitors so we can come and stay again!
The apartment was clean, well kept, and had a lot of amenities. The light blocking curtains were great for when our son needed to nap. Location is perfect, close to everything yet tucked enough away from Court Street. Thank you Antoinette!
Antoinette's place in Carroll Gardens is elegant, spacious, clean and very well located, with easy access to wherever you would like to go by the G or F trains. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet. I was staying here for work and had some very specific requirements regarding arriving and leaving in order to make things work out well for me and Antoinette was accommodating. When I stay on airbnb I see clients in the space where I am staying and they loved this place as well.
Staying with Antoinette was easy peasy. She was a great host, the apartment was just as advertised, and she was super flexible with our arrival and departure times. She even allowed us to leave our bags after we checked out so that we could explore for a few more hours before heading to the airport -- very accommodating.
If you want a clean, comfortable, really great spot to stay and from which to explore Brooklyn and surrounding areas -- this is your best bet!!!
The apartment was very clean, very comfortable and in a wonderful neighborhood. It has a private entrance and has a very homey feel. I met Antoinette briefly, and she was very responsive via text. I will definitely try to stay here again the next time I am in the city.
We were delighted by the apartment, which was even more spacious and well appointed than we expected from the pictures. There was a separate entrance, a beautiful kitchen stocked with dishes and pantry essentials, fresh towels and linens-- many nice little touches. We had a lovely stay and would definitely rent from Antoinette again.
Excellent location! Really wonderful flat and spacious with all the needs of a travelers kitchen. Will be back.
