Overview

Brooklyn Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 5

Make this charming apartment your home away from home in Brooklyn! With a private entrance in our brownstone home, the apartment has old Brooklyn charm with modern comfort. Located on a quiet, tree-lined block that has won an award in the Greenest Block in Brooklyn contest for the last 5 years. It's just a 3-minute walk to the subway station (the 'A' line, an express train) and a short subway ride to attractions in Brooklyn and Manhattan (about 20 minutes to Greenwich Village or downtown Manhattan). Grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants, and other amenities are within short walking distance. A great spot for families (we welcome children 6 years and older). A perfect base for exploring all New York City has to offer. We live underneath the vacation rental, so it's easy for us to receive you and give you the keys, and we're happy to recommend our favorite spots and things to do!

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Kate and Brian

A translator and a teacher, we live underneath the vacation rental (it has its own private entrance) with our two kids. Some of our favorite things to do in New York are walking across the Brooklyn Bridge and eating in Chinatown, visiting great museums like the Met, MoMA, and the Brooklyn Museum, and enjoying cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery while strolling through Greenwich Village.

Kate and Brian purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Kate and Brian chose Brooklyn

We love this calm, pretty block with friendly neighbors, and the fact that it's so close to the A train with easy access into Manhattan.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is spacious and filled with light, and we've stocked it with local magazines, guidebooks, and a collection of DVDs with movies set in Brooklyn and New York City.

Beautiful, quiet, comfortable -- a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this beautiful apartment for two months and had a lovely, peaceful experience. The apartment was gleaming and spotless when I arrived and there were even fresh apples and fresh flowers waiting for me, along with pantry items and detailed information about the neighborhood. The queen bed was wonderful to sleep in and there was very little street noise. Kate and Brian were the perfect hosts in that they were always available but never intrusive. I’ll also say that they clearly have a great love for the neighborhood and close ties to their neighbors, which meant that people tended to be quite friendly as they saw me coming and going from the house.

I would highly recommend this rental and this neighborhood in general, which I found to be safe and low-key as well as interesting. Big plus that this apartment is so close to the A express train.

Oh, and the wide planked hardwood floors are GORGEOUS!

Happy to go back

  • 5 of 5

Great place, even roomier than I expected from photos and description. Loved the Bed-Stuy neighborhood; loved Bread Love for breakfast, Celestino's for dinner. Hosts responsive but unobtrusive. And the value of being a three-minute walk from the A train (express subway into Manhattan) cannot be overstated.

Coming home in Brooklyn!

  • 5 of 5

Wir (2 Erwachsene m. 1Teenager) haben uns unglaublich wohl gefühlt in dieser sehr grossen, gemütlichen Wohnung. Man fährt in 20 Minuten mit dem A-Train nach Manhattan und wohnt ansonsten in ruhiger Lage. Das Appartment ist perfekt ausgestattet, sauber und gepflegt. Die Vermieterin Kate ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit! Die Betten sind sehr bequem, die Dusche ist super, und es gibt schöne weiche Handtücher. Wenn man richtig schön frühstücken und essen gehen will, fährt man besser ein paar Subway-Stationen, das ist direkt in der Nähe etwas schwierig. Dafür kann man es sich aber in der Wohnung sehr nett machen! Absolut empfehlenswert!

Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults, 2 girls, 12, 14, from Greece) stayed in this wonderful charming apartment for 1 week. It was very clean, spacious, light, quiet, ... - just wonderful!

The subway station is a 5 minutes walk through a nice street and a little park. Even coming home late at night we felt very safe. It took us 15 minutes to go to Soho and around 25 minutes to go to Grand Central Station.

Kate was always very helpful and she had a very useful little list with restaurants, supermarkets, laundries etc., which were all quite close by.

I would recommend it to all my friends, who prefer a casual way of holidays among locals than unpersonal hotels.

Kate, thanks for everything. When we'll have enough money, will come back.

Fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

it was a fantastic spacious and clean apartment in a very safe, beautiful and picturesque neighborhood. We (2 adults and 2 girls, 14,12, from Greece) spent there a week at the end of April. Easily we could take the subway to Manhattan at any time. Around 15 Min. to Soho and 25 Min. to Grand Central Station. Little supermarkets were close by and some very nice fancy restaurants. We enjoyed not being surrounded by thousands of tourists but being together with locals. Kate was very nice, helpful and patient and always willing of answering all my questions.

I would recommend it to all my friends, who like this kind of non-touristic and casual locations. Thanks Kate, we had a great time!

When we'll have enough money we'll surly come back.

Perfect Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Three days in this elegant, comfortable apartment wasn't enough. I wish I could have stayed there for a month. From the bedsheets to the kitchen utensils and eveyrthing in between, the rooms more than served my needs. The hosts were helpful and unobtrusive, the location much to my liking, whether for strolling around Brooklyn or catching the nearby subway into Manhattan. I recommend this very pleasant apartment highly.
