Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for us. Our daughter lives around the corner. We are familiar with the wonderful neighborhood. It is bursting with fun and activity during the day but quiet and calming at night. You get to see how it feels to live like a New Yorker. The apt is less than a block from the subway stop that will take you anywhere. The apt is is perfect. It is modern yet charming. It is clean and they provide anything you need. We did not cook because restaurants and coffee shops are just steps away. but the kitchen had anything you need even a dishwasher. The bed is very comfortable. Check in and check out was very easy.

Great location for a Carroll Gardens visit

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was well thought out and equipped. Quiet street convenient to Carroll Gardens activities. I was there to visit family and the apartment was within easy walking distance to them, as well as subway, park and shops.

Lovely place to stay in Brooklyn

We loved our stay in the heart of Carol Gardens. The apt was quite spacious (by NYC standards). Melissa was very accommodating regarding check-out times, which we really appreciated.

Great location in a charming home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this garden level apartment was perfect. The neighborhood has many fun restaurants and bars. The subway to/ from Manhattan was quick and easy. The apartment is warm and cozy and it was a great place to relax after a long day of walking throughout the city. After several visits to NYC , we enjoyed exploring Brooklyn and lower Manhattan for the first time. The Brooklyn Botanical Gardens were spectacular.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Charming, modern, immaculate and welcoming! Beautifully renovated brownstone in a great neighborhood. Very well equipped kitchen, plenty of towels and blankets, and lovely backyard. Apartment is about three steps down from the street, but still very bright -- just like in the photos -- and quiet. Melissa, the host, is very responsive and accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay.
