Overview

About the property

Located on a lovely tree-lined block amid brownstones, this sunny 1 bedroom apartment in a pre-war building is just a few minutes' stroll from Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens and Brooklyn Museum. Get the true Brooklyn vibe in this hip and historic neighborhood known as Prospect Park Lefferts Gardens. A vibrant neighborhood typical of the amazing diversity that Brooklyn has to offer - with restaurants, bars and an array of markets and stores - you will find everything you need in the immediate area. The Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, one of New York City's hidden gems, are just a short walk from the apartment, as is the Brooklyn Museum with it's top notch art collection and temporary exhibits. Prospect Park offers great summer concerts and is a beautiful destination, especially the new Lakeside area (featuring a state of the art skating area and water park), the Boathouse, Carousel and Zoo. Take a stroll through the park to reach Park Slope, Grand Army Plaza and the beautiful Brooklyn Library. The arena at Barclay's Center is just 2 subway stops from the apartment, and features world-renowned artists in concert as well as major sporting events. The subway provides quick and easy access to Manhattan and other parts of Brooklyn (Parkside or Prospect Park stops of the B/Q/S trains, Winthrop stop of the 2/5 trains), with a direct line to famous Coney Island. The Barclay's Center concert venue and arena is also just a couple of subway stops from the apartment, featuring world-renowned artists in concert as well as a variety of sports events. Street parking is available, and there is also a parking garage 1 block away.

With large windows in each room, including the bathroom, the apartment is very bright and cheerful – a peaceful retreat from the bustle of big City life. This apartment 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 tv, cable, wifi). 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 kitchen (oven, range, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, pots, pans, plates, etc) and enjoy it at the ample dining table. Note that the apartment is located on the 4th and top floor of a walk-up building (no elevator). Bedding, linens and towels are provided. English, Spanish, German, Slovene and some French are spoken. All inquiries are welcome!

What a bright, clean and comfortable apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place to unwind after days spent exploring Brooklyn and Manhattan. Just steps from the subway and Prospect Park close to the Zoo, Botanical Gardens and Brooklyn Art Museum. The neighborhood is great. Markets filled with fruits and vegetables I have never seen. Good restaurants and bakeries and coffee shops and bars. People in the neighborhood were super friendly, a mix of longtime residents and hipsters.

Just a couple blocks from the subway and Prospect Park, this apartment was the perfect place to unwind after days spent exploring Brooklyn and Manhattan. The neighborhood is so interesting, with markets full of fruits and vegetables I had never seen, along with good restaurants and bars, and an Interesting mix of long-time residents and hipsters. Totally recommend this place.

Beautiful apartment well located

  • 5 of 5

The aparment is lovely, exactly as the pictures show. I stayed during winter and building's heat system works perfectly so the apartment is always warm and temperature is nice. It is true that the heating could get noisy at some points but not enough neither that frequent as to ruin the positive aspects the apartment has.

The building halls may not be as nice as the apartment but they're OK. As long as for my experiencie, I could say people living in the building is nice and not noisy at all.

Regarding the location, it's just great. So close to Prospect Park, a really beuatiful park with many spots that make it worthy to get to know the park deeply. Also really close to Flatbush Avenue, an avenue where you can find whatever you need and, last but probably most important, it's close to two subway stations (about 4 blocks to each) so if you're planning to visit Manhattan, for example, you can easily reach either subway station and take an about 30 minutes ride from there.

Summarizing, I totally recommend this apartment!

PS: People in charge of the apartment are really helpful and easily available for contacting them for anything.

Less than expected

  • 3 of 5

We arrived with several suitcases after a long journey. We were not aware that there was no elevator for this 4th floor property. There also was no washing machine. The kitchen seemed to be an inadequate afterthought. There were no working surfaces. We spent lots more than we expected just to handle wash and food.

The stay was quiet and the apartment was clean. The neighborhood was safe, but kind of run down. It appears to be improving , however, given the active construction in progress.

Relaxed stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the apartment for a week. Communication with Tania was easy and reliable and Liliana met us at the place as set up. The apartment is a comfortable place to stay in NYC - the trip into Manhattan on the Metro is easy as well as it is to Brooklyn locations. Flatbush Avenue has a Jamaican feeling to it, but the neighborhood feels safe at all times. So - apart from the fact that the apartment is on the 4th floor which is to be considered if you are not in shape to carry your suitcase - it is a place we liked and can recommend for a relaxed stay.
