Our 4 bedroom apartment is in a charming brownstone. It comfortably fits 7 people and is centrally located on a quiet street, just a block and a half from Prospect park and minutes away from Manhattan subways. You'll also enjoy our deck and garden.

The Space

Our place is located in the neighborhood of Park Slope in Brooklyn, New York, on a beautiful landmark street, 5 minutes away from several subway lines going to Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens (a subway ride to Manhattan is 15-20 minutes). Park Slope has a lot to offer: great restaurants, beautiful architecture and a very kid-friendly environment (Park Slope has been voted one of the best places to live in New York City). It is located 5 minutes away from Prospect Park, which was designed by the same designer as Central park (it is half the size of Central Park).
Our apartment has three floors (2 full floors--ground floor and parlor floor- and an English basement with windows) and the apartment is part of our house. Our house is from the end of the 19th century and has recently been renovated by us. The apartment has 4 bedrooms that sleep 7 people (1 bedroom with a king size bed, one bedroom with a queen size bed, one bedroom with a sofa bed and the last bedroom with a single bed). There are two bathrooms, one with a bath and the other one with a shower. There are toilets on every floor (a total of 3). The apartment has a beautiful garden and a deck where you can relax and eat. If 4 or 5 guests are staying at our place, they can use the rooms in our duplex apartment (3 bedrooms), but if our guests would like to use the rooms in the triplex apartment (i.e. they need more than 3 bedrooms), then the price depends on the number of guests (above 4 guests, there is an additional 50 euros per person per night if the triplex needs to be used).

  • Nous avons passé une semaine parfaite à Brooklyn, chez Laurence. Située dans un quartier pratique, agréable et vivant; l'appartement dans la partie inférieure d'un joli brownstone compte 4 chambres et deux salles de bain et est très chaleureux. Nous avons profité surtout le matin de la terrasse : entre le chant des oiseaux et les excellents bagels de la boulangerie d'à côté, y prendre le petit déjeuner était un pur bonheur. L'option jogging dans le Prospect Park voisin est une expérience luxueuse pour nous Parisiens. Un endroit à recommander sans réserves, nous rêvons d'y retourner !

  • We stayed in Laurence's apartment over Memorial Day weekend and had a lovely time. The home was very clean, comfortable, and well-located to lots of shops and restaurants. Laurence was a great host, who met us at the apartment and reviewed everything with us. We planned to cook several meals at the house and she generously offered the use of their spices, olive oil, etc., which was very helpful. The outdoor space was also really lovely. We used the grill and ate breakfast and dinner on the deck.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our hosts provided excellent and clear communications on relevant information. The apartment was first class and the building itself is set in a vibrant local community area. Close transport links provide easy access to the city centre. Recommend the MetroCard (and NY Subway app) to make best use of the subway network links.

  • There were 6 of us in town for a friends wedding, and Luarence's home was the perfect homebase to reconnect, cook together and explore Brooklyn. She was very accommodating during the reservation process and gave a thorough tour of the home upon arrival. It was a great trip and a very comfortable home!

  • Just returned from a great weekend in Brooklyn at Laurence's flat.. She's was super cool and very accommodating as far as meeting us to get the keys and communication.
    The flat itself was very spacious with great interior design.. Lots of outdoor living space as well which is often hard to find in NYC.
    Recommend it for sure!

  • Laurence's brownstone is beautiful and comfortable, and Laurence herself was a delightful hostess. I stayed two nights at Laurence's with my wife, stepson, and mother-in-law, and the accommodations were perfect for our party. The location is good – a short walk from shops on Seventh Avenue and about ten minutes from the park. If you need lodging in Park Slope, I highly recommend Laurence's brownstone.

  • This was the ideal place for 3 couples, 1 single, and 3 babies/toddlers to spend quality time together over a wedding weekend for a mutual friend. Laurence was amazing--friendly and responsive to dozens of questions in the days leading up to the visit. She answered questions about the web site, confirmed and reconfirmed the price, offered to provide a portable crib, generously left her son's toys out for our kids to play with (a ~huge~ hit!), provided comprehensive info about nearby parking garages (even though she insisted there would be easy street parking, and was right), was flexible about check-in time, and even recommended nearby restaurants and supermarkets and helped us make a dinner reservation for the night we arrived. When I got to the house, Laurence welcomed me with a detailed tour of the layout, the well-equipped kitchen, the appliances such as dishwasher and laundry, as well as how to work the AC, fans, lights, and locks. She followed up with a call to make sure everything was okay.
    The house itself is extraordinary. A double bed, king bed, single bed, and comfortable pull-out couch, along with 2.5 bathrooms, made for very comfortable accommodations. Everything was clean and stylishly furnished. The house was kid-friendly (we just had to keep a close eye on the toddler near the stairs). We loved sitting on the balcony each night looking onto the beautiful courtyard.
    The neighborhood was also ideal. Everything we could imagine was within a block or two-- grocery stores to buy food for breakfast; wine, beer, coffee, and pastry shops; amazing restaurants (we tried Korean, pizza, and burgers, and all were incredible); drug stores; and the beautiful Prospect Park with its running/biking trails, playgrounds, and expansive greens. Not to mention a short walk to the subway, with easy access to Manhattan. It was the perfect place for early morning walks with kids and short outings to explore throughout the day. If we hadn't had the wedding events, we never would have needed our cars.
    We are a group of childhood friends who now live across the country and have diverse interests and tastes, and every one of us was thrilled with this house and location. Laurence was so generous to share it with us. We hope to stay there again soon!

  • Our family just returned from a nearly week-long stay at Laurence's lovely triplex in Park Slope. It was absolutely perfect for us...neat, clean, well-located and spacious and not far from the Subway. We couldn't have found a better place for our visit to NY to see our son. Laurence was a terrific host. She made sure that someone was there to greet us, give us our keys, and explain everything we needed to know for our stay, and she kept in touch via email/text prior to the trip, explaining the process. I highly recommend this place and would come back and stay here again in a heartbeat! Thanks, Laurence, for your part in making this an amazing vacation.
