Great apartment in a great location. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, perfect for a family stay. Caroline is very responsive to questions. The biscotti on our arrival from a nearby Italian bakery were an unexpected treat!

Great location, awesome neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here:)! The apartment itself had such great charm and fit all of us very comfortably. It was easy to communicate with the owner who was very pleasant. The location was fantastic! The subway was right around the corner with easy transport to Manhattan or even Coney Island. The neighborhood itself had everything you could possibly want or need including a wide array of restaurants, stores, etc. There were 5 of us and we all were happy with the decision to not stay in the city, and to take the time to really enjoy Carroll Gardens. If you have a car make sure to move it during street sweeping per signs posted on the street. By the end we mostly stayed in the area as opposed to going over to Manhattan and enjoyed it so much:). Thank you for hosting us Caroline!

Wonderful stay in Carroll Gardnens

  • 5 of 5

Caroline's place was perfect! It was in a great location, very clean and well stocked. She even left us fresh flowers upon arrival! It is in walking distance to tons of great restaurants and shops. Also really easy to get in to Manhattan from the apartment. Caroline was a great host. I'd highly recommend this place to my friends and family.

Great localtion, plenty of room, safe.

  • 4 of 5

Just returned home from a long weekend in Brooklyn. This Apartment on the first floor was perfect for my party of 5 that included my 86 year old mother who WAS NOT looking forward to stairs, here she didn't have to deal with it. This flat can sleep 7 comfortly, 8 if someone wants the couch. Linens were comfortable.

Kitchen is well equiped, but we when out and enjoyed the many eatery's that are fantastic. How Caroline has set up getting in with the key arrangment worked perfect.

Bathroom is spacious with plenty of towels and plently of hot water for everyone's shower. With all women we could have used another mirror, so consider bring one for makeup.

My mother called call this place "shabby shiek" It works for a week but if you lived there you would freshen it up a bit.

Lovely apartment, fantastic area

  • 4 of 5

We had a really great week in Brooklyn. This really is a brilliant neighborhood, within walking distance of superb shops, restaurants, and seemingly endless coffee places. The F-train subway to Manhattan is a 4 minute stroll from the front door. The apartment is full of character, with many original features, high ceilings, mirrors, and a giant map of NYC. Very well provided with all the essentials and a great shower. Main bedroom huge and airy, other 2 smaller but functional. The middle double bedroom is linked to the other two - the occupant has to go through one of the others to get in or out. Owner Caroline very helpful, provided loads of information, and was always quick to respond to our questions. Already plotting our return to Carroll Gardens.
