Visit to Brooklyn
Property was as advertised and we had a lovely holiday. Excellently situated for dining on an evening. One drawback was lack of light in kitchen/diner but it was manageable. Also there were no contact details for the owner in the apartment which would have been useful
Great location, nice environment, clean apartment!
We stayed here at the Carroll Garden Apartment for a week (end of April and beginning of May). The apartment was clean and equipped with everything we needed. The subway was just around the corner and in ten minutes we were in lower Manhattan. There are bakeries, cafes and food outlets nearby. We spent nice time on this amazing place. Highly recommendable! Thank you!
Union Street Stayouver
The apartment was fine for our purposes and we thank you.
Loved the location which made it easy to get around - a couple of minutes walk to the subway and easy walking distance to Smith and Court Street restaurants and to Whole Foods.
Johanna was very accomodating with us leaving our bags there in the morning we were checking in and then again on the day we left.
I loved the shower - yes it’s a bit hard to get in and out of and the curtain can hug you a bit but the shower pressure is great!
The two things that I note so people are aware are:
1. It’s very dark in the kitchen which can make it hard to cook or prepare food. There is no overhead light so you rely on the light from the microwave and a small lamp.
2. We are not used to hot apartments (coming from Australia) and the hearing is controlled by the tennants upstairs. Johanna suggested we open the kitchen window - which we did. The heating still comes on and off all day and night, and as light sleepers we found the noise during the night a little disruptive
Overall we had a great stay and enjoyed catching up with old friends in the neighbourhood.
Great location, clean apartment!
Our entire experience from arrival through departure was excellent. I whole-heartedly recommend this place for people that are looking for a great escape to Brooklyn and Manhattan. The F/G trains are 5 minutes away that get you into the City in no time. Your can spend hours on Smith and Court St. shopping, eating, and drinking coffee. And Park Slope / Prospect park is cheap cab ride away if want to check out that side of town. Brooklyn is made for walking, so bring comfortable shoes! You can walk the Brooklyn bridge / DUMBO via the Brooklyn Heights Promenade in 30 minutes ... do it..!
Johanna is a great host and the place is set up with everything you need. Yes, it is true that you can hear the neighbor's children stomping about from the floor above - but honestly, this was quite minimal - and didn't visit to remain inside the apartment.
We will be back for sure! Thanks Johanna...!
Little Gem in nice neighbourhood
This is a very cozy basement apartment in a leafy neighbourhood. The apartment has all you could need and is only a block from the nearest metro stop. The only thing preventing a 5 star review is the noisy neighbours upstairs (family with kids).
