Overview

About the property

2 bedroom, 1 bath with a modern kitchen and beautiful natural light.

Guests enjoy a charming two bedroom apartment above Brooklyn Farmacy, our storefront soda fountain, in family-friendly Carroll Gardens.

Enjoy the neighborhood from the privacy of your corner room with a view, or pop downstairs to mingle with the regulars at the fountain counter. A favorite with locals and tourists alike, the Brooklyn Farmacy is a prohibition-era drug store restored as an ice cream parlor. Pete & Gia, sibling proprietors, live in the building and will be your hosts and neighbors.

The guest apartment is a lovely, sun-drenched, second floor suite, comfortably furnished and seductively simple. Two bedrooms offer full size brass beds, luxurious bedding, and plenty of closet or wardrobe space. Sleep two more on the living room sleeper sofa. The single bathroom is tastefully tiled and the water is plenty hot! The modern kitchen is stocked with cooking needs and complimentary coffee, tea and seltzer from the Farmacy.

Carroll Gardens is one of Brooklyn’s most desirable locations. You will be blocks away from the restaurants and boutiques of Court Street as well as the artisanal shops and bars of Smith Street. Take the kids to play at the fabulous Pier Six, take in a concert at Brooklyn Bridge Park or walk the Brooklyn Heights esplanade for great views of the Manhattan skyline. Spas, movie theaters, farmer’s markets, salons, banks and dry cleaners are abundant. A fifteen minute subway ride on the F train gets you to Manhattan and a slightly longer one takes you to Coney Island and the beach.

Enjoy the 21st century buzz of Brooklyn while stepping back into time. Send the kids down to the soda fountain to spin on the red twirling stools, play checkers, and sip egg creams at the end of the day. If you're visiting friends and family in the area, you'll have a great place to meet and greet.

TV/wifi access. Heating and AC.

Loved!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. Super cute, great location. Only issue was you have to go through one bedroom to access the other bedroom. We were staying with my sister and her husband, so it was fine. Just be sure you're close with the other people staying here, as they'll be in/out of your room often! Otherwise, this place was great. Would definitely stay again!

Loved it! It was exactly what I was expecting.

  • 5 of 5

Spacious apartment, that was clean and very well stocked. Great location. Walking distance to Subway that went straight into NYC. Great local businesses in the neighborhood - restaurants, laundry & market. Highly recommend grabbing a sundae at the Farmacy downstairs too!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (with 2 young boys) spent a week in Gia's apartment and it was a great choice. We were thankful to be away from the busyness of Manhattan but close enough on the subway to be in amidst the action in 15-30 minutes (depending on the destination). Carroll Garden was a lovely neighborhood and we particularly enjoyed the range of great, family-friendly restaurants to choose from each night, all within easy walking distance.

The apartment was very spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed having a kitchen to prepare our breakfasts and end of day snacks etc. The Farmacy Soda Fountain downstairs was a popular dessert choice at the end of the evening. We would inevitably be dragged (not unwillingly) inside by our sons when we returned from dinner!

Gia was very helpful and easy to contact with questions/concerns etc. We can't wait to return to NYC.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and Gia was more than hospitable. The apartment had lovely Brooklyn charm, was clean, and felt like home. Area was also very nice and off the beaten path so not touristy at all. However everything you need is close by in walking distance with very easy access to Manhattan via subway. Next time we armrest in NYC we will definitely come stay again.
