Love tourists and know New York. Am not a leprechan.
Had a great two night stay with husband. Beautiful , clean, bright, large, private accommodations. J very nice person. Would definitely stay there again.
My wife and I recently spent two nights.
Great place to stay. J. was very flexible with our checking in super early. Very clean, very large, and very historic. We had the whole third floor, and it was very peaceful. The bathtub is amazing.
Lots of great restaurants, right next to the Farmers Market.
Loved it all Will & Margo from Albuquerque
J. was very accommodating and answered all the questions we had before and during the stay. The room was convenient, clean, and cozy. I booked this room for my parents and they were very comfortable there. Thanks, J.!
Attractive building and spacious room but lacking some basic amenities such as WIFI access and adequate hot water.
Fantastic place for enjoying Brooklyn … or even Manhattan since it’s close to transit.
We drove in from Virginia and found parking within a few spots of the door in mid-afternoon. (Left the car parked there the rest of the weekend, but noticed a regular turnover of parking spots.)
Space is tastefully done, quiet … and really spacious. This is not a hotel room or a suite – it’s a full apartment. I enjoyed having coffee in the rocker in the kitchen/sun room every morning. (There’s coffee to be made or you can dash down to the corner and buy two bagels and two coffees for less than $5. We bought.)
The only hitch was the bed, which J. clearly states is a sofa bed. I slept (and napped) like a rock. My wife, who is half my size, complained that she kept rolling into me. Lesson for all of you: Don’t sleep with me.
We sampled the neighborhood restaurants, all very good, and strolled through Fort Greene park people watching New Yorkers being surprisingly normal.
Too cold for garden, but we enjoyed looking out at it. It must be spectacular in the spring.
Never used Airbnb before. We’ll be back. And we'll be back to Perfect for Parents, With Garden.
My dad loved the place and will come back.
The level of comfort and privacy was wonderful and exceeded my expectations. If you are visiting somebody in Brooklyn, I cannot recommend a better place.
We had a wonderful time! The space is private and lovely - the garden gives it an airy, even larger feel. J. was there to greet us, knows the neighborhood and was very accommodating. We are looking forward to our next visit.
We had a great stay at this apartment! Everything went very smoothly--we felt bad having been delayed in transit, but Jane met us with the key and explained everything very graciously despite the late hour. It was a nice set-up--a separate ground floor apartment with its own entrance, but the owner lived in the building, so we felt like it was easy to be in touch with her if we needed anything. As it happened, the place was great and we didn't need any help.
The apartment is nicely decorated and very homey. We liked the huge bathroom and the views of the pretty garden. We were nervous about the sofabed, but it turned out to be very comfortable, and we slept very well each night.
Fort Greene is a gorgeous neighborhood full of classic brownstones, and though we'd lived in New York before, exploring this area was a whole new adventure. The park is a short block from the apartment, and it is lovely. We also walked to Brooklyn Flea and many great restaurants in the neighborhood. There is quite a brunch scene around! (Our favorite place we tried may have been Cafe Paulette, with its classic French atmosphere--it is only a few weeks old!) We also walked to Park Slope a few times, another lively neighborhood which is not too far. Just be aware that most metro lines are a 10-15 minute walk--it was totally fine for us, and we spent most of our time in Brooklyn, but just know that getting to Manhattan is not a matter of a few minutes, if that is important to you.
We had a great stay and would highly recommend this apartment! It was comfortable and left us well-positioned to explore one of New York's most charming neighborhoods.
Excellent time in Brooklyn staying at J's, who is a very thoughtful and accommodating host. The house has great access to lots of treats such as Brooklyn Academy of Music, Flea Market and the exceptional Smorgasburg! Beautiful apartment, stylish decor, great shower and surprisingly peaceful. Nice and spacious for relaxation.
