Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms: one small and one large for a total of up to 6 guests

Ground floor apartment of our Brooklyn brownstone/townhouse.

The house was built in 1898 and has lots of beautiful original details. Free WiFi included as well as Coffee/tea with a Keurig Platinum Brewing system. The kitchen is fully equipped with plenty of cups, glasses, pots and pans, etc. We recently renovated the kitchen with new cool zinc countertops.

Guests may also use our beautiful decked garden area with a bamboo wall, couches and an outdoor fireplace table. We live in the house upstairs and generally leave guests to themselves, but the garden is shared with us, and we may hang out by the fire pit with friends on occasions.

The apartment has one large bedroom with a Queen size bed and a twin size daybed that also has a trundle bed underneath. Both are beautiful Restoration Hardware furniture pieces. The small bedroom is really just for sleeping and has a twin size bed and another pull-out twin size bed trundle underneath. Please see photos.

For guests staying during the hot summer months (July/August), we have a standalone air conditioner in the main bedroom, but there is no AC in the small bedroom or the kitchen. It's generally just fine with the fans we have, but if you are very sensitive to heat and need the room cold, then this may not be the best place in the summer.

A few blocks to Prospect Park with beautiful walks, great for jogging or cycling. The Audubon Center is right there by the Lake with Boat Rides. At the Prospect Park tennis center, there are always courts available by the hour. Prospect park also hosts the famous Drummers Circle and Brooklyn's large farmers market on weekends at Grand Army Plaza.

The kitchen has a 4 ring Wolf gas stovetop, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, kettle and all the utensils needed. The smart TV has lots of cable channels as well as netflix, amazon prime, etc.

No smoking anywhere inside or in the garden, no parties, and no guests other than the guests on the reservation.

* Prospect Park – Few Blocks

Why Sylvia & Andre chose Brooklyn

We live in a lovely landmark protected neighborhood. All the houses were built in the late 1800s and very well taken care of. It's a little like Sesame street, with stoops where people hang out and chat with one another.

Authentic Brooklyn Brownstone

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved our stay at this brownstone! The street was quiet and the apartment was clean. The backyard space was a nice little bonus, too. We were lucky enough to find a good parking spot and enjoyed a short walk to the subway each day. The owners were very nice. We'd highly recommend this place!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We were in Brooklyn to see family and this apartment was perfect for us. It was spacious, books to read and board games...a nice surprise. The location was perfect as it was near the park and close to restaurants and the subway.

Great place in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The apartment was perfect for us. It was convenient to transportation and for walking to great places in Brooklyn. We had three adults and just the right amount of space. We loved the kitchen although we didn't really cook. The back garden was lit up in the evening and looked lovel through the kitchen window.
