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!

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.

Great place to stay, great neighborahood.

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I had a lovely time in Brooklyn, and we were fortunate to have a cozy place to come home to after days out exploring. We received so much help from Liliana. We arrived at about 3AM due to late flights, and she was right there to greet us. And I left a small suitcase in the apartment when we departed, and she kindly helped to return it to me. Thank you so much! I will return soon I hope!

Just perfect for a long stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 weeks in this lovely apartment. It was very welcoming, warm & sunny. The neighbourhood is so friendly that we felt that we were part of it. The subway was in easy direction with a choice of lines so it was never a problem to get anywhere. Manhattan only 20mins away. The apartment had everything u needed, thou the kitchen a little small for my messy cooking. No problems from neighbours and it always felt safe. I would recommend to all my friends. Sonia was amazing and easy to deal with all my worries were always resolved. Loved to have stayed another 3 weeks/months. 😄

Lovely clean apartment, a little noisy though!

  • 4 of 5

Firstly, I'd like to say that Sonia was great at keeping in contact with with me from the moment I booked up until the day we left NY. The apartment is in a big block of Brooklyn apartments near Prospect Park (Parkside Avenue side) and you have the ability to jump on either a B or Q straight to Manhattan, it takes around 30/40 minutes if you're lucky and there are no subway delays... we had quite a few, and the trains run every 10 minutes. It's handy if you want to visit some places further out, with a train that goes directly to Coney Island, and easy connections to places such as Williamsburg which we visited regularly* The apartment is on the 4th floor of the block and there is no lift, so if you're unable to manage this walk then the apartment isn't for you. It was extremely clean (one of the cleanest we've staid in from using both AirBNB and Homeaway regularly), warm, roomy, and we felt safe and cosy. There is great wifi connection, a tv with normal american news channels, a hob, stovetop kettle and fridge/freezer. You'll find a supermarket around 2 minutes down the road which is reasonably cheap, and a wholesome foods store near Prospect Park station which is really good for organic food or veggie and vegan finds. I went for two morning runs in Prospect Park which is only 5-10 minutes walk away and met some lovely folks, it's a pleasant place with beautiful grounds. The only issue we had were the pipes, which can not be helped I guess? however they're extremely loud especially during the night, and we woke up on a few occasions due to rattling or the sound of steam! Luckily we're both heavy sleepers so it wasn't too much of a disturbance, but I think that if you are a light sleeper you'll definitely have an issue getting a full night of sleep. Saying that, personally we loved our stay and have no complaints really - the above is just a note for others who are thinking of stay here. If you want a true Brooklyn experience on the outskirts of NY then this is a great place to stay . Thanks Sonia for a great experience and for letting us stay in your apartment.

* Note for foodies: If you're visiting Williamsburg and are veggie or vegan then you need to go to Champs. All American completely vegan diner, so good we went twice. Stroll to Dun Well Donuts after for a vegan doughnut if you have room after your meal!
