PICTURESQUE NEIGHBORHOOD, CONVENIENT TO ALL NYC, 2.5 BLOCKS TO TRAIN

Brooklyn Townhome Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

This spacious apartment is the epitome of both quintessential and modern Brooklyn living. It is located in the culturally diverse and historic Stuyvestant Heights area on a landmarked block. The homes on this quiet, tree lined street boast anterior gardens displaying rose bushes, hydrangea and other plants that flourish in the Northeast. The apartment is situated on the third floor of a nearly 150 year old renovated brownstone. Two skylights add to the open and spacious floor plan, saturating the space with natural light. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and is equipped for cooking. The living room and bedroom have separate closets and entry doors for privacy and convenience during your stay. The bedroom is spacious and has a gently sloping ceiling, therefore it is recommended that guests over 6'2' use the sofa bed. The mid century furniture was carefully chosen to present a clean, unique environment. Paintings and photos in the space were made by local artists.

OWNER OCCUPIED : This is as close to a bed and breakfast as you can get without the added cost. Unlike most vacation rentals, the owner lives in the building. Check in/out at any hour is never a problem. A New Yorker is downstairs, at your disposal for tourist information and any questions that may arise during your stay. This is a non smoking building.

PLEASE NOTE: The apartment is on the third floor so you will be walking up the stoop (stairs leading into the house, pictured below) and then two flights of stairs inside. There is NO elevator so pack accordingly.

**If the apartment is booked during your vacation see my other rental listing #917430 (same location)**

I work in Brooklyn real estate and I enjoy getting to know people from all over the world. I feel fortunate to be able to share my beautiful home & neighborhood with my guests. I particularly love that my daughter Ruby, at age 3, is able to meet so many interesting people. She gets very excited when new guests arrive and often presents them with a drawling or shows them a new dance she has learned.

Owner/Manager purchased this townhome in 2009

As Southern transplants, my husband & I knew we wanted to make our home in a neighborhood with a strong sense of community, an interesting history and a culturally diverse population. Our home was built in 1864, it is located on one of the loveliest blocks in the area. Inside the apartment you will find unique furnishings I've collected over the years and photos given to me by friends in the NYC artist community.

A trip to New York should be pleasantly unforgettable. With my guidance, I can save my guests time, money and I hope make the experience less intimidating. Since I live in the building traveling stress is decreased - I personally welcome my guests upon arrival and make myself available for any questions.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5
I felt at home for 11 days in this immaculate and beautifully maintained apartment. The bedroom was a fantastic size and the kitchen was well equipped for my needs. The subway was less than a 5 minute walk and made this location fantastic for catching the A or C train to downtown Brooklyn or Manhattan. I would encourage travellers to visit the New York Transit Museum. It is a delightful attraction and further increased my appreciation of the MTA. There were plenty of places within walking distance to eat and shop for groceries, and the area was quiet, safe and filled with friendly neighbours.

The host was gracious and helpful throughout my wonderful stay in Brooklyn. I would recommend this property to anyone who wanted to live in a space created by a remarkable woman! If I could, I would give this property and the owner, 10 stars!!! Thank you Season, for your kindness and opening your home to world travellers. I wish you continuous success. Be well. Jen H

Super beau week end dans cet appartement très bien situé à Brooklyn à 5 minutes du métro.
Très propre et lumineux.
Assez grand pour être 4 adultes.
Petit commentaire négatif...les oreillers sont vraiment molles...ce n'est pas bien grave

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, our one year old and myself just came back from a stay in this apartment, and we had a great stay! It was super clean, nicely decorated and fully stocked with everything we needed. Season was the perfect host, from setting up a crib and baby chair to ordering us a taxi (as we had no phone). The subway was an easy walk away and the neighbourhood had some nice cafes, bars and restaurants. Would definitely recommend to stay here to any of my friends!

Very nice and well furnished flat. Good ubication, a little far from Manhattan if you want to go there daily. Check with the cabs if they know the place before...

Great Stay in NYC

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Season's place from June 3rd to June 9th 2013 and I was more than happy with the apartment. It is exactly as in the pictures, actually even better :-). It is spotless clean, quiet and you will find all you need to have an enjoable stay. Season provided us with plenty of fresh towels, I even found an umbrella (which was useful as we had one or two rainy days). The neighborhood is very nice, I always felt safe and confortable walking around and there are many cool little restaurants where you can go for breakfast, dinner etc. I liked in particular the Saraghina (just a couple of blocks from the apt).
Season was very helpful, I could reach her easily and the whole booking process was really easy.
Her place is gonna be my first choice next time I will visit NY.

Affordable and convenient to transport

  • 4 of 5
I highly recommend this apartment for your next trip to New York. My sister and I stayed recently and found the apartment exactly matched the photos and details shown on the website. Season is a wonderful host and has set up a very comfortable home away from home for travellers.

We found travelling into Manhatten each day very easy as it is only a couple of blocks to walk to the subway station where you can catch either the A (express) or C trains. The trip will take around 30 minutes.

The immediate area is very nice with all the brownstone buildings which were quite a novelty for us Aussie tourists (felt a bit like we'd stepped into Seasame Street). We never felt unsafe during our trip.

The highlights of our time in New York included:
- A tour of the World Trade Centre site. Taking the tour which is led by survivors gives you a very personal and moving experience and I highly recommend this.
- The Empire State Building. Despite warnings about long queues, we found that a midafternoon visit was not crowded and the view from the top quite amazing.
- Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge at twilight

I would recommend getting a weekly subway pass if you are staying for more than a few days, as we certainly got good value from ours. Just make sure you have the correct cash for purchasing this from the ticket machine as we had a few problems when we first arrived due to not being able to use our Australian credit cards in the machine and it can only give a small amount of change.

Located in the historic Stuyvesant Heights section of Bedford Stuyvesant, on one of the most coveted blocks in the area, the apartment is surrounded by well kept brownstones and two beautiful churches. Bed Stuy is centrally located, bordering other popular Brooklyn neighborhoods such as Williamsburg, Clinton Hill, Prospect Heights, and Bushwick. Travel throughout the five boroughs is very fast with the A express or C local trains, just 2.5 blocks from your vacation home. Lower Manhattan, Prospect Park, Brooklyn Museum & Botanical Gardens are all about 20 minutes of train travel. Times Square is 35 minutes away and multiple beaches can be reached within 45 minutes. Choose the bus (at the corner) or a train for a jaunt to Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Bushwick points of interest. Within three blocks of the apartment there are wonderful restaurants like Peaches & Saraghina, laundromats, coffee shops, grocery stores, a wine bar, a bike shop, a library, parks and playgrounds.
