Excellent

  • 5 of 5
This is a cool, very-good-value apartment in Lefferts Gardens which is well situated for exploring Brooklyn and NYC. The neighbourhood is friendly and for the time being, relatively hipster-free. That said, the local Wholesome Foods market is a bonus, groceries-wise, and the trendier shops and restaurants of Park Slope, on the opposite side of Prospect Park, are a mere subway stop away. The park itself, a haven for joggers and cyclists, is five minutes' walk away and hosts a farmers' market on Saturdays. There's really no reason to stay in Manhattan.

Sylvia and André were perfect hosts, attentive/available yet relaxed. You'll feel like you have your own place. The apartment itself was as advertised - the hosts' painting and photography is a nice touch. The TV does show some local channels, but no cable, while the Wi-Fi worked perfectly. Large, functional kitchen. Sleigh bed in spare room sleeps 6'2" comfortably. One could say that the apartment is a little frayed around the edges - paintwork, etc - but that's also part of its charm, and it was clean everywhere it needed to be, especially bathroom. Our only (minor) criticism is that the ceilings/walls aren't very well insulated against noise, however this isn't a complaint against the hosts/neighbours, who were conscientious at night and in the morning. In other words we got our sleep.

We'd definitely go back!

Clean and convenient in a great location!!

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was clean, kitchen had everything we needed. There was even ice in the freezer all ready for us and coffee pods for the one cup coffee machine. However, on the practical side, I have to say that this apartment really cannot comfortably sleep six unless two of the six are very small children. As you walk in the door, on the left is the living room/bedroom #1 with several straight chairs, a leather sofa which folds down to a "bed" and a king bed. There is also a separate little bedroom with a single bed with a trundle . These beds were very comfortable and in a separate room so good for children if the adults wished to stay up and talk. Our two teenage daughters could not sleep on the sofa "bed" and ended up sleeping on the floor with quilts under them. For four people the apartment would have been ideal. We went all over NYC from this apartment. There are two subway stations approximately the same distance from the apartment so it was possible to go almost anywhere quite easily. Also found it easy to find the apartment when we drove from New England. We loved NEW YORK!! Hosts Sylvia and Andre were very friendly and nice and were able to answer any questions we asked. There was even a complimentary bottle of wine when we arrived but since we don't drink, we left it for the next guests to enjoy..

Owner's Response: It was wonderful to have you stay with us, and we are sorry that your daughters didn't find the sleeper-sofa comfortable enough. Nobody had complained about it before, but we will now look into buying a new sofa that is better suited for sleeping. We always appreciate any input to improve every aspect of our guests stay.

Charming Brooklyn Brownstone

  • 5 of 5
My dear girlfriends & I met up for a weekend getaway in NYC. We opted to stay in Brooklyn rather than the hustle & bustle of Manhattan. What a treat this home away from home was!! Sylvia & Andre were wonderful hosts - we even had a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived! The neighborhood was quiet & beautiful but still close to any amenities you may need. This will be our choice when visiting NYC again - HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

A nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5
I would overall recommend this appartment, we sure had a pleasant stay in NYC. Here are some pluses and minuses in my opinion:

Positive points:
- Conveniently located 5 minutes away from the Prospect Park subway station. Another line a bit further away on Nostrand. Never used the car for the whole week (except to park it, see below).
- Equiped kitchen. Somehow a toaster was missing, but the housekeeper got us one the next day (the owner Sylvia, away at the time of our stay, responded quickly via email). Nice coffee machine, including coffee (we bought some, to realize later that there was plenty already provided...).
- WiFi works great.
- Indian restaurant down the street (King of Tandoor) is pretty good and really close.
- Supermarket not too far. Also a few more expensive but fancier places.
- Prospect Park really close. If you're running (or cycling, or rollerblading), this is the place to go. There is no shortage of runners there!!
- Air conditioning unit. Noisy but keeps heat and humidity under control.
- Large enough for 5-6 people (though kitchen is better suited for 4).

Neutral points:
- Parking on the street, generally easy (once did we come close not to find a spot, but I got lucky and could take the place of someone leaving). We do have to switch sides because of no-parking restrictions on one side (Mon&Thu 9:30-11:00) or the other (Tue&Fri 9:30-11:00 if memory serves me) on some days. The one time where it was tight though, there really was no room anywhere near on this street of the next few. So it remains somewhat of a worry. The parking at the end of the street mentioned in an earlier review of this property closed down (for good) on 7/31/2013.
- We only had 4 towels (for 5 people) but we were quickly provided with the missing one. Overall, you're not on your own, even if the owners are away.

Negative points:
- The east side of Prospect Park (where the appt is located) is not as nice as the west side. Many cheaper shops on Flatbush Ave.
- The appartment is in the basement (though enough of it is above ground), and it is therefore not as bright as it would seem from the pictures.
- Kitchen table is rather small. Don't plan a big dinner with 6-8 people and lots of food on the table!
- No outside terrasse and BBQ.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review - it was great having you here. Just to clarify a few points you made: alternate side parking where you will have to move your car for street cleaning is in effect in the whole of New York City. We are lucky in our neighborhood that we do still find parking on the street easily during the day. The garage at the end of our block did not close, and is still open (there was another garage a couple of blocks away that did close).

The apartment is a garden level apartment (not basement - there is a basement below the apartment). As it is on the ground floor of our house, the trees on or block do take some of the light. On the upside, the shade they provide does tend to keep the air in the apartment cooler and more pleasant in the summer.

We always do our best to make every stay a good experience and even when we are on vacation ourselves, our house keeper is right around the corner to address anything and everything quickly.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here while in town for our daughter's wedding. This was a wonderful place with all the comforts of home. We were able to get around with out a car as the public transportation was very close. Our hosts were very attentive and yet allowed us to enjoy the space privately. I especially appreciated that there was coffee available in the morning as we arrived very late the night before due to airline issues. They were great at giving us a map of the neighborhood so we could get out and find a grocery right away in the morning. Thank you we will be back!

Our Brooklyn 1/2 stay May 16-21 2013

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for fancy & fake this isn't the place for you. But if you want a no frills don't bother me stay in a great working class neighberhood with great host/owners then you've come to the right place. Sylvia, Andre and the boys are amazing hosts. They make you feel at home, & give you all the support & info you need to get around the neigberhood. Bus, trains, car service, taxi & zip cars are all a phone call or a short walk away. You'll get a real feel of what it's like to be a local in a diverse neigberhood full of flavor and culture. Walking distance from prospect park, which is a runners wonderland. We would definitely stay here again and plan on it. Plenty of eateries, bodegas, and grocery stores for anything you need. I love that you get to mix it up with the locals. It's a tree lined street reminiscent of o'l Brooklyn circa 1800's. Totally would recommend this location to anyone.
