Charming, Convenient & Spacious 2BR Carroll Gardens Brownstone
average rating of 4.909091 based on 55 reviews

We loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

This second floor flat in a beautiful old brownstone offers everything you need and more for a great stay in Brooklyn. It's located a half block from the subway in Carroll Gardens, a pretty and lively neighborhood. The are loads of great restaurants and bagel shops very nearby and an amazing Italian cookie bakery around the corner.

The apartment is clean, efficient and well maintained with an updated bathroom and well equipped galley kitchen. We appreciated that the hosts provided things like coffee, teas, butter and jam, oil and a few spices in the kitchen. The host is friendly, helpful and available without being intrusive. Just great!

We hope to return soon, this time in warm weather so that we can enjoy the rooftop deck!

Location fabulous...plenty of room for 5 young people

  • 3 of 5

Although i know everyone has given this property five stars, I was not as impressed. That said, my daughter and friend thought the brownstone was fabulous and said they would rate it a 4. BTW the are 40. We had some issues with not receiving an email to tell us how to get in and therefore spent our first day arriving at 7am and then having no place to go. We had previously made arrangements to arrive early. Fortunately someone that was renting opened the front door and we put our luggage in and took off for Manhattan hoping to hear from the owners...we did, much later in the day. We stayed on the second floor, very narrow steps as you would imagine and had we not had our daughters with us, getting our luggage up would have been a problem. So my suggestion is unless you are young or very in shape or have no heavy luggage this is not the place for you. And...if you have people staying above you, which we did, and they have children...not a good combination. Although Jamie did ask them more than once to quiet down. Also the apartment seemed tired...sheets that wouldn't stay on the bed, tiebacks hanging by a string, sour smelling towels, a towel rack that kept falling off the wall. Again, just not my style. I have learned that a 5 star VRBO or Home Away rental is not the same as a hotel. Learn new things all the time and I just wish I had understood the rating system prior to renting this property. Again, I am 69 and have stayed in some wonderful places and may be a bit spoiled. Just in case you are in the same boat, thought it important that another side to a 5 star is also part of the reviews.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This place was a godsend for our families to come together from 4 different countries for our son's wedding. We chose it for the location, park for our grandchildren, size, appearance and accommodating hosts. It fulfilled our hopes and we felt so at home there.

Great location, beautiful part of Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was beautiful and very clean. My favorite aspects of it was its little deck where my husband and I could sit outside at night, as well as the proximity to the park, subway and many restaurants and shops. We have three kids, so finding a place with actual beds for 5 seemed to be a challenge. And this place gave my oldest daughter a room of her own with a twin bed. And even though the owners were away during my visit, they were very quick to respond to emails.
