Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms: one small and one large for a total of up to 6 guests

Ground floor apartment of our Brooklyn brownstone/townhouse.

The house was built in 1898 and has lots of beautiful original details. Free WiFi included as well as Coffee/tea with a Keurig Platinum Brewing system. The kitchen is fully equipped with plenty of cups, glasses, pots and pans, etc. We recently renovated the kitchen with new cool zinc countertops.

Guests may also use our beautiful decked garden area with a bamboo wall, couches and an outdoor fireplace table. We live in the house upstairs and generally leave guests to themselves, but the garden is shared with us.

The apartment has one large bedroom with a Queen size bed and a twin size daybed that also has a trundle bed underneath. Both are beautiful Restoration Hardware furniture pieces. The small bedroom is really just for sleeping and has a twin size bed and another pull-out twin size bed trundle underneath. Please see photos.

For guests staying during the hot summer months (July/August), we have a standalone air conditioner in the main bedroom, but there is no AC in the small bedroom or the kitchen. It's generally just fine with the fans we have, but if you are very sensitive to heat and need the room cold, then this may not be the best place in the summer.

A few blocks to Prospect Park with beautiful walks, great for jogging or cycling. The Audubon Center is right there by the Lake with Boat Rides. At the Prospect Park tennis center, there are always courts available by the hour. Prospect park also hosts the famous Drummers Circle and Brooklyn's large farmers market on weekends at Grand Army Plaza.

The kitchen has a 4 ring Wolf gas stovetop, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, kettle and all the utensils needed. The smart TV has lots of cable channels as well as netflix, amazon prime, etc.

No smoking anywhere inside or in the garden, no parties, and no guests other than the guests on the reservation.

Local Attractions:

* Prospect Park – Few Blocks

* Brooklyn Museum – 15 Minutes

* Brooklyn Botanical Garden – 15 Minutes

* Brooklyn Zoo – 15 Minutes

20 minutes by subway to Manhattan

Children 10 and older are welcome.

Bedroom Configurations:

* Bedroom 1 – 1 Queen Bed + 1 twin daybed + 1 twin pull out bed

* Bedroom 2 (Optional) – 2 Twin Beds

You will have the full self-contained apartment with your own entrance, private bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. Children 10 and older are welcome.

Why Sylvia & Andre chose Brooklyn

We live in a lovely landmark protected neighborhood. All the houses were built in the late 1800s and very well taken care of. It's a little like Sesame street, with stoops where people hang out and chat with one another.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sylvia and Andre are great and made us feel welcome and at home. Their place was very comfortable for four of us and we loved being surrounded by the works of these two talented artists. Cool neighborhood.

Great place in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The apartment was perfect for us. It was convenient to transportation and for walking to great places in Brooklyn. We had three adults and just the right amount of space. We loved the kitchen although we didn't really cook. The back garden was lit up in the evening and looked lovel through the kitchen window.

Lovely Brooklyn brownstone for a weekend in New York!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us reunited in Brooklyn for a long weekend away. We had a great time in New York and this apartment was perfect for our group of 6! We didn't spend much time in the apartment itself but it was nice, had everything we needed, and was close to Prospect Park/convenient to the Prospect Park subway station. Highly recommend!

Charming apartment in a interesting neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this charming old-world style apartment for three nights recently - we were a large family group but felt there was sufficient room. The kitchen is lovely, the furniture is great. It is a basement apartment (which I didn't realize before we arrived) although there are large windows. The back door is padlocked, so no access to the back yard (fire hazard?). Easy walk to subway and coffee shops, street is charming. There was some violence on Flatbush (shooting at 3 am) but never felt any hostility on the streets during the day. Very international vibe to the area, with fun food options (one of us is vegetarian).

Owner's Response: We are so sorry that you have to be here when that shooting happened. This is rare and everybody in our neighborhood was traumatized. Please note that the shooting happened between 2 people from outside our area who knew each other and at 3am at night. We realize the issue with the emergency exit and have now installed a way to exit the apartment from both sides in case of an emergency.

Great location........AC inadequate for NYC summer heat and fire safety concern.

  • 3 of 5

Andre was very welcoming.........we arrived early for check-in and the apartment was ready for us. Great location, close to train/park/grocery store/restaurants, etc. Air conditioning was quite inadequate for the summer heat and the apartment was very hot, although we only spent early mornings and nights inside. A safety concern was the fact that the two rear doors to the owner's back yard were padlocked (I presume for privacy which I totally understand)...........however, in the event of a fire at the front of the residence, there would be no escape route through the back (or the windows as they are all gated for security) and any guests inside would be literally trapped. That being said, good value for the price and location.

Disapointing.....

  • 1 of 5

Adventure seekers wanted.... Do you want to stay up all night reconnecting the air conditioning in and out take hoses (held by duct tape) so that hot air is not filling up your room? Although, large enough and has great potential, the apartment was not clean, smells of mold and has inadequate air flow. There is a fantastic outdoor space but, there is a pad lock on the back door so exiting is impossible. Although the owners apologized for the condition of the apartment and said they fixed everything, there are multiple issues requiring more than a quick fix at this apartment. We will never stay there again!

Owner's Response: It is a pity that the guests did not bring up the disconnected AC hose during their stay, we constistantly make every effort to address any and all issues immediately and don't always notice things going wrong between bookings. Needless to say, all of their concerns were fixed immediately before the arrival of the next guest. The airflow in the apartment is great, and unfortunately, the garden is not ours to rent to guests (and is not show anywhere in the listing, either). The specific complaint this guest had about the apartment not being clean, was about leaves that had fallen in front of the entry door (not anything relating to the inside). We have a wonderful and responsive housekeeper who puts a lot of effort and takes a lot of pride in keeping the space spotless.

There are some great places to eat and drink within walking distance and many many more with a very short subway or cab ride
