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.

Comfortable, Clean and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

I appreciated the 'vintage' style of the apartment. It was clean and quiet and we felt right at home. The location worked well as it was close to my daughters' apartment and the Parkside subway station from which we could take the Q train into Manhattan. Also, restaurants, grocery stores, and a laundromat are close by. (I didn't have to use the laundromat though). Prospect Park is just down the street and offered a great running course, and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden is a gem. It was easy to communicate with Sonia, and Liliana met us at the apartment even when our flight was delayed and we arrived 3 or 4 hours later than planned. I would definitely consider staying here again.

Clean, quiet, close...

  • 5 of 5

In 35 minutes we could be in Central Park, or in 5 minutes have the best jerk chicken in Brooklyn. Neighbors were welcoming, Prospect Park and all its delights were nearby and we always got a good night's sleep in Sonia's comfortable and clean apartment. Parkside subway stop provided easy access to NYC; Flatbush Avenue was easily navigable for groceries and carryout; and, it was great to have a spacious kitchen to cook in. Looking forward to ur next stay here.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was lovely, safe, well-stocked and the building quiet. It's in the heart of Caribbean Brooklyn and you can easily walk to markets, restaurants, etc. the closest subway stop, Q, takes you to both east side and west side transfer points which is important travelling back and forth between Brooklyn and Manhattan.

Sonia was the height of professionalism -- trustworthy, prompt, accessible. All arrangements were easy to make with her. The key handoff was simple, the wifi was great. I would book here again and recommend to others.

Excellent Location!

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying in this apartment! My son lives on Caton Ave, a short walk away. The Q subway stop was close by ... and we used the Q a lot! Prospect Park is only steps farther away than the Q stop. Enjoyed the diverse neighborhood ... a bit "gritty" but we always felt safe. My partner is vegetarian and we really enjoyed the nearby Zen Vegetarian café.

The description of the apartment is accurate. We were there the week of Thanksgiving and were easily able to find what we needed in the kitchen supplies and at the nearby grocery store. (We prepared a couple of side items for the T-Day meal at my son's.) The queen bed was very comfortable (thankfully ... we were there 8 nights!) and the bed was big enough for my 6'4" partner. We were never awakened in the night by loud neighbors. A few days there was construction work in neighboring apartments, but we were mostly away during the day and the nights were always quiet. The apartment was clean and all the furnishings were in good shape. There was plenty of room and we enjoyed making the apartment our "home" while visiting Brooklyn. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

appartement agréable et proche du métro

  • 5 of 5

Sonia a répondu rapidement à toutes nos questions, et l'appartement a répondu à nos attentes : proximité du métro, confortable pour 4 personnes, accueil ponctuel et efficace. Aucun sentiment d'insécurité dans ce quartier! Le temps de déplacement pour rejoindre Manhattan en métro (station très proche) est largement compensé par l'authenticité du quartier et le calme de l'appartement. Nous le recommandons vivement.
