Now living in upstate New York with her husband Robert and son Mark, she is pleased to continue offering hospitality to visitors of New York City with the Lovely and Convenient Garden Apartment in Carroll Gardens.
Our family has owned this property for over 40 years. We know the needs of our different types of clients; guests traveling to visit gamily members, tourists, business travelers, and Brooklyn residents looking for a place during renovations or waiting for a closing.
Location, Location Location! One of the most accessible apartments to both Brooklyn and Manhattan locations and the countless charms of Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill.
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.
My husband and I were delighted with our stay. The apartment is well appointed, located on a charming tree-lined block, close to the subway and even has a backyard. We would stay again.
We enjoyed our week long stay in this quiet location. The apartment was very clean and well represented on website. Since we were visiting and helping family out, we found it a relaxing refuge for rest and renewal. Loved walking around the neighborhood. Groceries and restaurants very accessible.
We had a really enjoyable time staying in this great neighbourhood and wonderful apartment, which was very comfortable and ideally located for all our needs. Thank you.
Appartement agreable calme et bien situe a proximite (moins de 200 metres de la ligne F de metro qui traverse Manhattan) donc loin de l'agitation du centre tout en en etant proche (15 minutes environ).
Des commerces traditionnels sont a proximite a smith street et surtout a court street.
Je recommanderai cette adresse ou on peux touver de la nourriture tres correcte et un bon repos apres une journee de visite.
I stayed in this lovely Carroll Gardens apartment with my two young daughters, and it was a perfect place to spend a week. The apartment itself is set up wonderfully for kids -- I had them in the twin beds in the bedroom and I slept in the living room. The noise barrier in between was complete and they slept wonderfully. The backyard is perfect for kids, and they loved Carroll Park just a block away. Between the F train a block away and the R train just a ten minute walk away, we could get to most places we wanted to go -- most importantly, Coney Island, which I'd highly recommend for families with young kids.
Some downsides, which I read in other reviews but didn't really bother me: Yes, the bathtub is a little tricky for showers (though great for baths). Yes, there's something wrong with the sound on the TV that makes it cut out or buzz, depending on the volume.
All in all, a wonderful stay. I look forward to staying here again.
