Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place for a week that would allow us to bring our small dog while visiting with family. The apt is in a lovely,safe neighborhood with everything you would need within easy walking distance. We never had any trouble finding a parking space on the street. I was thrilled to have an opportunity to refine my parallel parking skills that had gotten a little rusty, living in suburbia. The Subway, restaurants, parks, grocery stores, -All easily accessed. As for the apartment - it was clean and very well supplied with linens. The kitchen is well equipped with microwave, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker, tea kettle, etc.and the stove was so clean I am not sure it had ever been used but we used it and it was great. Have an adventure! This is a garden level apartment in a beautiful old townhouse that is obviously loved and well maintained. So, know what you are booking, look at the pictures and you won't be disappointed. Johanna was wonderful to work with. I received quick responses to questions. Booking the reservation was easy and I hope we have the opportunity to return.

Beware: Dangerous for People and Animals

  • 2 of 5

Although this garden apartment has charm, the street is lovely, and the location is convenient, we found this apartment not particularly clean and dangerous as well. As for cleanliness: the white bathroom floor tiles were dark and dirty-looking--possibly from age--but very unappealing, nonetheless. The couch was terribly stained and should be cleaned or replaced. The entire apartment was so musty and moldy that we bought air freshener, and I took Zyrtec every day for allergies. As for safety: the bathtub/shower situation (a high claw-foot tub with a small, round shower curtain contraption) is impossible to get in and out of safely. My wife and I also found it claustrophobic--a bit too intimate with the shower curtain. There was no light outside the front door, so we were too often in the dark with uneven stone steps. And most distressing of all to us is that while the owner allowed us to bring our dog for a fee, she left chunks of rat poison under the bed, and, yes, the dog found them and chewed them. (The dog's OK, luckily, but we had a tense trip to the emergency vet late at night and further tests are still required.) As for other issues which we found less than desirable: The TV was so high on the wall that you had to stand up to watch it comfortably, and the reception was strange--loud popping sounds continue for a time every time you change the channel. The noise upstairs, as others have reported, really is a negative--two young children are up very early every morning, and you can actually hear conversations from the floor above. Some of these issues were reported in earlier reviews, but we mistakenly assumed they would have been corrected.

perfect almost

  • 4 of 5

Place is really nice...the oly major concern that would makeit so i do not stay here again is the heard of elephnts on the floor above running around on the weekend.

The tub is really hard to get in and out of and taking a shower is like tryng to get clean while standing in a zip lock bag. No exterior light that i could find, so tryng to get in on the first night was tough.

The cable tv is tough to watch because there is a constant popping sound.

It is well located, well decorated, and well stocked. The only reason i wouldnt be back is the upstairs people but maybe for some people that is no big deal.

Owner's Response: We try to be prefect but there is so much in life we cannot control. -The tenants upstairs have school aged children. They go to bed early and go to school by 8am. Thankfully their lease is up in July and they will be moving. -The bath tub is a very large claw leg tub with shower curtains. I did not design the tub nor its fittings. It is beautiful, romantic and makes for a wonderful bath. -The popping static sounds are the responsibility of Time Warner Cable. I don't know why this is occurring. I found that after changing channels the sound discontinued. I wish I could control everything, but I do try my best to provide the best service I can and make my guests as comfortable as I possibly can.

Comfortable apartment in beautiful brownstone

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for the weekend, and I just LOVED it! Beautiful residential neighborhood, clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. Walking distance to shops, delis, restaurants and bars. Also walked to Prospect Park and through Park Slope. Would highly reccomend staying here, so much nicer that a hotel. Felt like a real "Brooklynite", if only for a little while! Can't wait to go back. Brooklyn is my new Manhatten!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Having lived in NY for 4 years, I was sad to leave back in 2001 for a new job. What has taken the sting out of that move over the past decade has been my regular trips back to the City I grew to love so much. Having experienced what true NY life was about, upon my return visits, regular hotels simply would not suffice. I would stay with friends, except for the fact that repeated crashing on someone's sofa bed is a quick way to lose friends in the City. So, I have been thrilled to be able to stay in this property as a yearly fixture in my life for several years now.

When you're visiting the City, you want a place that feels like a home away from home: this garden apartment is exactly that. I don't think the photos do it justice: it really does have a very warm and "homey" feel to it, which is really perfect after a day out moving through one of the busiest places on Earth.

The location is great: it's a block from Smith Street, which is one of the best, most authentic places in the City to eat, shop and hang out; especially if you're visiting. The F-train is about a 5-7 minute walk from the front door and you're maybe 3 stops from Manhattan. If you're going to Midtown, it will take maybe 30-40 minutes, door-to-door.

I'm happy to say that I have built new NY memories based out of this apartment. I asked my wife to marry me after a dinner in Midtown when we were staying here. I've visited old friends from this apartment. I've seen great shows and exhibits while staying here as well.

In short, if you're looking forward to eating at the Times Square Olive Garden, then this place is not for you. If however you would like a more authentic NY experience in an extremely nice place that is more indicative of where a native might live, then please don't miss out on this place. My wife and I both consider it our NY home and I'm convinced that a lot of other people would feel exactly the same way.

Not the best stay

  • 2 of 5

The description and listing are accurate. Neighborhood is safe and fabulous. What problems we encountered were; owner overbooked our first night, mix up on arrival with place not cleaned in time and no one with keys to meet us.Tub/shower situation really unsafe. No lights in kitchen so food prep was difficult. We would never stay here again.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that this guest had a mix up with his arrival. He did not provide a specific arrival time, and he indicated that he would arrive in the later afternoon or evening, so the maid was preparing the apartment when they showed up earlier in the day. Regarding the over booking one night, we never had the total number of nights requested available, and the overbooking was discovered over a week before the arrival date and I made sure that alternative accommodations were provided within one a and a half miles of our location. We have a beautiful and romantic extra long claw leg bathtub (photos provided on HomeAway site), which is not handicap accessible, sorry. I'm sorry that this guest did not enjoy his stay.
