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

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

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!

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.

This property is exactly as it is described on the Honeaway website. The owners, who live upstairs, are gracious landlords who were responsive to any questions/needs that we had.

We stayed with our son, daughter-in-law and 2 grandaughters. The beds were made to accomodate the 6 of us and there were chocolates on the pillows.

The property was also outfitted with a Keurig coffee machine with pods, a French press with ground coffee, bottles of water and plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, shampoo, soap, conditioner etc.

The property is on a lovely residential street but Flatbush Ave. with the Q line and a number of Indian, Chiinese takeout and an Northern Italian restaurant is 5-10 minutes away.

The property is clean and I would recommend it and would use it again.
Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us - it was a pleasure having you here. Hopefully we will see you again on your next visit.
