About the property

At just one block from Prospect Park and the subway, this apartment offers the ideal location for experiencing real Brooklyn life and exploring all of New York City. Located on a pretty tree-lined block with interesting architecture, this is a spacious and comfortable 1 bedroom apartment. The Botanic Gardens and Brooklyn Museum are just a short walk away. Get the true Brooklyn vibe in this hip and historic neighborhood characteristic of the diversity that Brooklyn has to offer. A vibrant neighborhood (known as Prospect Lefferts Gardens) with restaurants, shopping and an array of markets and stores, you will find everything you need within a short walk of the apartment. Street parking is easy to find, and a parking garage is nearby. Enjoy the great summer concerts on offer at Prospect Park, or take a pleasant walk through the park to reach Park Slope, Grand Army Plaza and the beautiful Brooklyn Library, or to discover nearby landmark areas such as Ditmas Park and Prospect Heights. Prospect Park is particularly well-suited for families with children - with playgrounds, the Brooklyn Zoo, the Carousel and the new 'Lakeside' skating area and children's water park. The subway provides quick and easy access to Manhattan and other parts of Brooklyn (Parkside or Prospect Park stops of the B/Q trains, Winthrop stop of the 2/5 trains). The Barclay's Center concert venue and stadium is also just a couple of subway stops from the apartment.

The apartment is cheerfully decorated and is a peaceful retreat from the bustle of big city life. It is newly furnished, freshly painted and is equipped with everything you could need to feel at home. It has beautiful hard-wood floors throughout and provides all the amenities (flat-screen HDTV, cable, wifi, air conditioning). The apartment comfortably accommodates 4 people, with a queen-size bed in the bedroom and a full-size pull-out sofa bed in the living room. Whip up a home-cooked meal in the fully-stocked and roomy kitchen (oven, range, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, pots, pans, plates, etc). Note that the apartment is located on the 2nd floor of a walk-up building (no elevator). Bedding, linens and towels are provided.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The apartment is very cozy and is really well-communicated with Manhattan, because the subway is very close (and goes directly into Manhattan). Although the building is older, we felt comfortable at all times. The neighborhood is very lively and popular, and it's a luxury to have Prospect Park so nearby.

We didn't have any problems at check-in or check-out, or for the security deposit refund - in fact we were given every accommodation. All in all a great stay.

Perfect location in an ethnic neighborhood that was safe and open all day and night. Close to the subway and Prospect Park, restaurants. Fit our needs perfectly.

Nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Tina was kind and everything worked as planned. The place is clean and cosy. The neighborhood is not as fancy as other close to it, but it is well connected to the subway and close to restaurants and shops and supermarkets. I recommend it!

We wanted a place close to our son’s apartment for our visit. This place was perfect. Large bedroom, well-stocked kitchen and two blocks from Prospect Park or the subway station. Great host - Thanks, Tina!

A Pleasant Base in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

Tina's apartment, only a short walk from Brooklyn's renowned Prospect Park, was an excellent spot from which to explore some of the major sights of the city and launch trips to New York City as well. Located in a vibrant, ethnically diverse neighborhood, the apartment offered all the essential amenities a traveler might need. While not luxurious, the place was clean, well lighted and furnished quite comfortably. We had the choice of preparing meals in the kitchen or visiting one of the neighborhood's many ethnic restaurants. The subway, less than a five-minute walk from the apartment, took us directly to Manhattan or to a different station where we could transfer to a train headed for other areas of Brooklyn. Especially pleasant was the new "Dumbo" area and its thrilling views of the Brooklyn Bridge; the Botanic Garden; Brooklyn Museum and Academy of Music. But there is much more to see, and we hope to return! If so, we will certainly try to book Tina's place again.

Warm & cozy flat in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I spent a romantic week celebrating the holidays in NYC and were really happy with our choice of this apartment. Even though it was so cold outside, inside was always nice and toasty! The bedroom was really comfortable and cozy, the living / dining room was well appointed and the kitchen roomy and with everything needed for cooking if one were so inclined. We didn't do much cooking though since we were so into the NYC restaurant scene, it's amazing all the different foods you can find there! The subway was just a minute away and in 20-35 minutes we reached all the places we wanted to see in Manhattan but also loved getting to experience Brooklyn with its more down to earth vibe. Will definitely stay here again on a future visit!
