The apartment is located in the historic Park Slope/Windsor Terrace neighbourhood of Brooklyn, designated 1 of 10 best places to live in the US by the American Planning Association. Manhattan is just a 20 minute ride on the nearby F subway line. The building is a quick walk to the landmark Prospect Park, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and Brooklyn Museum of Art.

The location was perfect for us and found the apartment very comfortable, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Many thanks for your help with the couple of questions we had - it was the first time I had every booked accommodation outside of New Zealand and was very pleased with the out-come.
Many, many thanks for making our complete holiday experience in New York so wonderful.
This was the perfect experience from beginning to end. Excellent communication, perfect location, lovely apartment, everything that everyone has said already plus some.
I will be booking another stay here again !
For two consecutive years I made Mr. Melzer's second floor apartment my homeaway from home. It's been a year since I last stayed but I have all the intentions in the world to stay with him again. I presently travel to NYC but I stay at my moms apartment since she has been placed in a Nursing Home because of her Leukemia condition. Mr. Melzer took care of me as family and I am indebited to him forever. The accomodations are five star.
My wife, adult daughter, and I stayed four nights at this property in October, 2015. The experience could not have been more pleasant -- and certainly more appealing and enjoyable than finding a hotel in Brooklyn.
Communication: From the time I first communicated with Roger to make reservations until the time we left after our stay, he was most gracious and prompt in his communication, both by e-mail and phone. This helped a lot when it came to making plans, meeting him when we got there, and expediting our departure.
Cost: Roger's pricing is reasonable and did not include extra or additional charges that I saw other property owners tack on.
Location: The building we stayed in is right across the street from an excellent grocery store and a Walgreens. It is also near coffee shops, various other shops, Prospect Park, and mass transit. The location is a pleasant residential area and quiet.
Accommodations: The apartment was kept very clean and well stocked with extra towels, blankets, pillows, and kitchen staple items in the 'fridge, coffee, filters, etc. The furniture was all in good condition and the beds and couch were quite comfortable. The apartment included a newish TV with cable service and WiFi access that worked well and was quick to setup.
From now on, whenever we go to Brooklyn to visit my son and daughter-in-law, I'll look forward to staying at this property of Roger's.
The apartment was clean, well equipped and comfortable. The location is excellent, with Prospect Park a short walk away. Everything you need is conveniently within 10 mins walk - subway, cafes, bars. Roger was an excellent host, responding quickly and helping with a slight change in travel plans by providing a fold down bed at the last minute. I will make this my first choice when visiting NYC in the future.
After staying in too many overpriced dumps in Manhattan, we finally made the decision to try Brooklyn. And it certainly was the right decision. Terrace Tower in Park Slope is a very well maintained building with spacious, generously supplied apartments in a friendly neighbourhood. All the one bedrooms were booked when we contacted Roger so he offered us his remaining 2 bedroom unit at a discounted price. At the end of happy days in either Brooklyn or Manhattan, we came "home" and these apartments feel like home. Our kitchen was well stocked with all types of cooking utensils and even butter, oil, spices and jam. Ample towels, soap, laundry detergent (for the on-site laundry) and shampoo. Roger and staff are present, helpful and friendly. We've never experienced such service, respect and pride in rental accommodations for tourists.
Terrace Tower is just a few blocks from an entrance to the subway to Brooklyn and Manhattan and walking distance to grocery stores and restaurants. We highly recommend these apartments and we know we'll be returning, too.
I have just returned from my 3rd stay in Terrace Tower, 11th Ave, Brooklyn. The 1st time was Oct 2010, a beautiful time of the year here when the trees lining the avenues are vibrant and the front stoops are decorated with pumpkins and lanterns; the 2nd time was during the heat of this summer; the 3rd an unplanned, extended stay caused by Hurricane Irene. Fortunately, Roger, the owner, had an apartment free and at just two hours' notice, very oblingingly accommodated 4 stranded travellers! All 3 apartments, the 1-bedded ones and the 2-bedded one are very well equipped. Pans, crockery, cutlery, comfortables beds and counches, a large fridge, TV, CD players are very much needed air conditioning help to make us feel at home in this beautiful and prestigious part of Brooklyn, where we never felt like tourists. Little touches like soap and individual sets of towels, napkins and even soap powder and washing up liquid are very appreciated. The laundry room is superb. Being on site, Roger is often available and very friendly and amenable. He always responded immediately to any emails I sent. The location couldn't be better. It is safe and Park Slope has been voted Brooklyn's No.1 place to live and just 5 minutes from the F train, I don't understand why anyone would wish to stay in an anonymous, expensive Manhattan hotel, when you can live amongst the residents of the iconic brownstones of Brooklyn. The subway easily takes you to Manhattan, Queens, Coney Island or Williamsburg. Buses are nearby to get to Red Hook to have a famous key lime pie. It's easy to reach both JFK or La Guardia. There is no need for taxis. There are many amenities close by- a supermarket immediately across the road, Rhythm & Booze, a friendly local pub and Prospect Ave, 7th Ave and 5th Ave will leave you spoilt for choice for restaurants and other shopping treats. I recommend Le P'tit Paris and Couleurs Cafe on 7th Ave and Canaille and The Chocolate Room on 5th Ave. Prospect Park, Brooklyn's answer to Central Park is at the end of the street and the Botanic Gardens is a delightful place to see flowers, birds and butterflies. I am already wondering when I can come again and even after 3 visits there are still places I have yet to see in Brooklyn. I cannot recommend these apartments highly enough and I would not stay anywhere else in New York.
Located in the Brooklyn borough of New York City, a 25-minute subway ride on the F train from Midtown Manhattan, in historic Park Slope/Windsor Terrace.
