If you want to feel like you've truly lived where you visit, stay at Sara's place! It's warm and inviting--very comfortable--with beautiful design details and a wonderful private backyard garden.
The neighborhood has very friendly residents--often out on the stoop--and offers several deli/(email hidden) down the street, and a dynamite southern-style restaurant nearby (Peaches Hothouse).
The walk to the Nostrand (A express subway) stop is a bit longer than preferred for frequent jaunts, but a small price to pay for such a great flat, and you can stop in the wonderful crepe shop or cupcake shop on the way (on Nostrand).
Being on the first floor (actually down a few steps) is great, after a long journey lugging bags, etc. The water pressure is great and windows at either side of the flat provide cross ventilation. The bed is really comfy and there are separate spaces within the flat, so you never feel "on top" of any travel partners.
A truly enjoyable place to stay!
Great location! The place was nicely decorated, and I personally loved the fact that it had a garden where you could sit down and relax after a long day.. Would definitely visit again!

Sara and her husband were very attentive and helpful. The appartment was exactly what we expected. Nice, cozy and confortable place to stay in Brooklyn. I really recommend it.
Wonderful!! We really loved Sara's place. It was cozy and comfy and spacious as advertised. The yard was a bonus and truly the place to be at the end of our day. Would love to stay there again next time we visit NYC. Thanks Sara!!
What a beautiful apartment! The rooms are super beautiful and the garden is unbelievable. If you're looking to stay in a lovely apartment in Brooklyn, this is a great pick. Hosts are super friendly and have no complaints about the place at all. A lot more interesting than staying in Manhattan! Neighborhood is super vibrant with lots of community. Very happy with our trip and am thankful for you sharing your house with us.
We had a fantastic stay. The apartment and garden are both just beautiful and the host was extremely friendly and helpful. Short distance to public transportation and safe neighborhood. I highly recommend staying at Sarah's place!
