We loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

This second floor flat in a beautiful old brownstone offers everything you need and more for a great stay in Brooklyn. It's located a half block from the subway in Carroll Gardens, a pretty and lively neighborhood. The are loads of great restaurants and bagel shops very nearby and an amazing Italian cookie bakery around the corner.

The apartment is clean, efficient and well maintained with an updated bathroom and well equipped galley kitchen. We appreciated that the hosts provided things like coffee, teas, butter and jam, oil and a few spices in the kitchen. The host is friendly, helpful and available without being intrusive. Just great!

We hope to return soon, this time in warm weather so that we can enjoy the rooftop deck!

No question! Great place across from Carroll PArk and located where we wanted to be!

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal location and set of facilities that made our stay for our son's wedding a breeze! It was close to the wedding venue and a short walk to all activities! Our friends loved coming by in preparation for the multi-events we were doing. Calm and quiet, the place reflected well on Jamie and Joe as our hosts. Its distinctive entrance made it easy to find and the air conditioning made it comfortable with the changeable weather! We loved the deck outside our dining room window and wished we had more time to enjoy it but wedding events drew us away! Key though would be our son's place (after 20 tries) to tie a bow tie! Weddings on Union Street should start here!

With a bit of embarrassment, we overshot our departure and Jamie understood our problem and made it work all around! What a understanding hostess! Our kind thoughts and thanks for helping our transition! wedding in NYC...should and will start here!

Great apartment in great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My husband, college-age son and I stayed here for five days. We'd been to NYC many times, but never stayed in Brooklyn. We are so glad we did. This was in a neighborhood right across from a park and school. The apartment was quiet and comfortable. It was near a subway station so getting around was easy. Jamie was a wonderful host. We highly recommend this apartment and hope to be back! (Note, it is a 3rd floor walk up for those with physical limitations). We enjoyed various nearby wine bars - highly recommend Entoteca on Court, Brooklyn Social on Smith, and Black Mountain Wine House.

A great space in a great spot!

  • 5 of 5

After a little confusion over which of two apartments was the one we were looking for, Jamie was great in helping us sort through the booking. We were supposed to be three people but ended up just two so probably had a little more space than we needed and we never used the second bedroom. J

amie met us with a smile and helped us learn the ropes of the apartment - not without its quirks, but you expect that with an apartment vs a sterile hotel room. Some of the lights were not working (or we couldn't figure out), the refrigerator was not very cold even turned way up and one of the wall outlets wasn't working. But the place was clean, spacious, very well laid out and perfectly situated in the heart of Carroll Gardens.

Being high up gave us a great breeze on the unseasonably hot days we were there, gave us lots of light and open views, and gave us a little softening of the sounds from the park across the street. And the park - it's such a wonderful feature! To be able to stroll across the street and sit under big shade trees while kids and families play around you is such a treat in the big city!

Some quick notes: you're a short 1/2 block from the subway and bus, steps from historic and wonderful food stores and outlets or modern alternatives, a great walk from Park Slope/Gowanus, the Brooklyn Heights Promenade or crossing either the Brooklyn or Manhattan Bridge. The apartment is comfortable, mattresses are perfect and Jamie was very responsive to texts or calls. I'm sure I'm leaving things out but suffice to say we'd absolutely come back to this apartment the next time our travels take us through New York!
