About Jana Vendeland

My husband and I bought this 100 year old home after living in the neighborhood for 11 years. Spent a year completely renovating it while keeping in line with the charm of the neighborhood.

Excellent rental. Clean, well-appointed, comfortable and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

This was my husband' and my first trip to New York and we were thrilled with all aspects of the the apartment. It was spacious, modern, clean and quiet. We loved the neighbourhood - close to great restaurants, cafes, shops, parks and the subway. We enjoyed walking and biking around Brooklyn, and loved coming "home" to this little oasis in the city. We would happily stay here again!

Ideal location in a quiet urban neighborhood setting, with easy access to all NYC has to offer.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I traveled from Seattle to Brooklyn for a week surrounding the 4th of July, and had a wonderful time. The property was well appointed and maintained with modern furnishings, fixtures, and amenities - we had all we needed, Jana (the owner who lives with her family in the upstairs unit) was very friendly and helpful on arrival. The quiet neighborhood setting, ideally situated near great restaurants and shops on Smith and Court Streets, made us feel like locals for a week. Easy access to F and G lines at Carroll Street Station made quick hops to Manhattan and Williamsburg (or anywhere else for that matter) a breeze. And I can't forget to mention the backyard patio - a great place for morning coffee, or late night wine and dessert.

Overall, we highly recommend this property for anyone considering a trip to NYC.

Very comfortable and convenient to all

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly as shown and very well appointed. We truly appreciated the central air conditioning since we arrived in a heat advisory and some of our plans were impacted by the weather. Consequently we spent more time indoors than anticipated during height of the day, waiting till the streets cooled. Carroll Gardens is such a wonderful neighborhood with Union Market and all the shops one needs. Jana was always available for anything and I would highly recommend this charming apartment. Transportation to the city is great and car services terrific - this time we didn't bring our car. All in all, a very pleasant stay.

Owner was so gracious, our flight was very delayed so we arrived after midnight! We were welcomed with a smile, given the keys, a quick look at where things were and how they worked, and how to get in touch if needed. Location was excellent.

Apartment in a great location, close to metro and served by many shops and restaurants. Quiet, clean and well equipped. This is the second time we use it and, for sure, we'll use it again in the future.

Brooklyn Hideaway: 5/10/17 - 5/18/17

  • 5 of 5

Having been to NYC several times before, we had always stayed in busy Manhattan. This time we decided to try one of the nearby boroughs - Brooklyn. We chose the Carrol Park unit because it was located in a walkable, safe and interesting area, and was close to the subway lines we would need to get to Manhattan.

The unit itself is located on the ground floor of a renovated 3 story brownstone on a quiet residential suite. The owner, Jana V, and her family live in the 2 upper floors. The unit was very clean, well appointed and included central AC. Jana met us at the curb when we arrived by taxi from JFK ($55) and walked us through the details of our accommodations and told us to text her if we needed anything.

The unit was exceptionally quiet (something we appreciated after a hard day in Manhattan). Nearby Smith and Court streets provide lots of small, neighborhood restaurants, markets, and other services within a 5-10 minute walk. The unit has access to a rear yard/patio that we took advantage of each evening to relax and enjoy a glass of wine.

After a bit of study, we had few problems navigating the MTA subway system, and after a few days felt like seasoned New Yorkers. On average, we were 35 - 40 minutes from Central Park, the museums, plays, etc., depending on the time of day, transfers, etc. The closest access point to the subway system is a 10 minute walk from the apartment. We were very pleased with our decision to go with this approach, and we always looked forward to returning to our apartment each evening after a busy day seeing the sights in Manhattan.

In summary, we highly recommend staying at the Carroll Park Garden Apartment. Jana was the perfect host and was very helpful whenever we had questions. The unit was very clean, quiet and comfortable. A great hideway just minutes from Manhattan!
