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. We live upstairs with our two children and look forward to sharing our love of Brooklyn and New York City with our guests. Ken and Jana

Jana's apartment has everything you need when travelling to NYC

  • 4 of 5

It is very conveniently placed near the subway stations and the lively streets of Carroll Gardens but is in an extrememly quiet location. A fabulous extra is the outside table and chairs. We ate outside everyday.

The apartment includes everything you need when travelling, plenty of storage, a comfortable bed, good wifi and a washing machine and drier and best of all Jana is a very pleasant host.

Quiet, light, conveniently located apartment with access to a magical courtyard

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem. This basement apartment is surprisingly well lit, in a quiet street close to the F line. Smith and Court Street offer a range of excellent restaurants and bars, with more options (including Prospect Park) within easy walking distance. The lounge dining area is spacious, the kitchen well equipped, and the bathroom includes a very convenient washer-drier combination. The separate bedroom is a boon for jet-lagged travellers--not every one has to be awake at 3.00am when you can't sleep, or at midnight when you have a teleconference in Australia. There is access to a delightful courtyard (equipped with its own performing squirrel troupe), perfect for a leisurely breakfast and functions well as a second distinct work space if you need it. And so well maintained--perfectly clean, the infrastructure for sorting garbage already set up, and the leaf litter regularly cleared from the entrance to the unit. Very responsive, but not intrusive, hosts. We will be back.

awesome, quiet, clean, bright and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay in Brooklyn as we were in New York for 10 days and we had busy days and this apartment allow us to have quiet days also

Was close to the subway, grocery stores, coffee shops and great restaurants

People were very accommodating, as we arrived very late and she waited up for us and had also ask us what we wanted for breakfast and she had it all in the frig for us

We were even able to enjoy the children practicing piano and singing up stairs

Would highly recommend these accommodations to two or four people and we Thank you for allowing us to visit your beautiful cities

Great base from which to explore NYC!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a week at the end of May, and were very happy we chose this place. The interior is very sleek and modern, and above all, CLEAN!!! It's the garden apartment of a well-maintained Brooklyn brownstone, and has everything travelers need. (The stacked washer and dryer was a definite plus!!) We took some of our meals on the back patio, which overlooks a private backyard; it was very pleasant and quiet. This rental is a wonderful base from which to explore NYC, with the subway being only a few blocks away. Jana (the owner) was very communicative, and was available to answer any questions we had. I highly recommend this charming Carroll Gardens rental!
