About Kylie M

We are an Australian family who have had 10 years of adventures in NYC. We have lived in Manhattan and Brooklyn and have loads of advice for anyone arriving as a tourist or expat. Having rented many vacation/holiday homes and apartments over the years, we know what makes your stay special and more enjoyable.

Kylie M purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Kylie M chose Gowanus

Our apartment is sparkling clean with freshly made beds and fluffy towels. It features high end finishes and is nicely furnished. Having become tired of vacation rentals being a little tired or not clean, we always ensure the apartment is sparkling clean and we have outfitted it with quality furniture, kitchen equipment and luxury linens.

Our townhouse borders the historical Carroll Gardens area and the newly gentrifying Gowanus area. Stroll around Carroll Gardens and enjoy the beautiful architecture and leafy streets. Every week a new cafe, restaurant or attraction pops up in the Gowanus area. In summer, enjoy the outdoor BBQ bar Pig Beach, wander over to The Palms for a game of shuffleboard or cycle up to Prospect Park. In winter, ice skate and toboggan in Prospect Park. If you have children, there is plenty of outdoor space for them in our garden. Also, on our block is a lovely school playground open to the public on weekends. Nearby on Smith St, is the lovely Carroll Gardens park and playground with a farmers market on Sundays. The new Whole Foods is a 10 min walk away. But best of all, the subway is only 2 small blocks away and is a quick ride into Manhattan.

**Please note that since this apartment has been built and furnished we have had 2 guests who have extended their stays beyond 6 months. It is for this reason we currently only have 2 reviews. Competitive market rent available for monthly renters. Please enquire.

What makes this apartment unique

Enjoy Brooklyn like the locals but be only a short subway ride from all the sights and sounds of Manhattan. This property is modern, comfortable, clean and full of character. The friendly owners will provide recommendations for the local area to ensure you make the most out of your Brooklyn stay.

When in NYC - Staying in Brooklyn is the Way to Go

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (older kids aged 17, and 22) had a wonderful stay in this two bedroom apartment in Brooklyn. It was very convenient- we were a short walk from Whole Foods and the subway into Manhattan. We are so glad we chose to commute into the city every day rather than stay in a Manhattan hotel- first for the space, secondly for the price. After a day full of battling massive tourist crowds, the quieter Gowanus/Carroll Gardens area was appreciated. It was so great to explore the neighborhood and live like a local- there are many locally-owned shops and restaurants nearby. Kylie was so sweet and welcoming- we felt like we were staying with a friend. HIGHLY Recommended.

Clean, bright, comfortable, and very well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

Kylie's place was perfect for our stay in Brooklyn. We were in town for a wedding which was less than a block away so the location was perfect for me and my 10 yr old. It's close to both the Carroll Street and the Union Street stations (a few blocks each). Lots of cafes and restaurants are nearby as well.

The hosts are very friendly and helpful and have supplied the apartment with just about anything and everything you would need: snacks and a bottle of wine on arrival, coffee, a nespresso machine ❤, shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion..

The garden is lovely and though it was a bit too chilly for me to enjoy, my daughter loved the trampampoline and spent nearly all of our apartment time outside.

Thanks so much for a wonderdul stay! Will definitley try to book again when we return!

Warm and inviting!

  • 5 of 5

Warm and inviting describes both the apartment and Kylie, our host. The apartment was perfect. Everything was so fresh and new. We are not accustomed to winter, so the heated wood floors were a real treat. The apartment had all the amenities you could want. We hosted various family members for dinner in the apartment during our stay and had everything we needed to prepare dinner. Kylie was great. Interactions with her were a pleasure. She was readily available for anything we needed. We didn't need much because she had left such detailed information in the apartment (and in the app) ranging from how to use the WIFI to great suggestions for dining and shopping. If we should find ourselves in Brooklyn again, Kylie's apartment will be our first choice!

Thanks Kylie.

Comfortable, Convenient, and Accomodating!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this wonderfully modern and clean apartment for a week in August. We have no hesitation in strongly recommending it to others.The kitchen, bedrooms, laundry, bathroom were all loaded with all the products needed to make you feel at home. The location is walkable to many great restaurants, Whole Foods/Rite Aid, one block from Ample Hills Creamery for daily treats of ice cream and the subway station which is only 3-4 stops away from Lower Manhattan. Kylie also has tons of recommendations/NYC maps and guide books in the apartment which made it so convenient! We have stayed all over Manhattan over the years and this was our first stay in Brooklyn and were impressed by the coziness, character and convenience of Brooklyn. Our wonderful host made it better. We would definitely return to Kylie's apartment in Brooklyn when we return to NYC. Thank you!

my husband and two adult children stayed here and were very comfortable. The apartment has everything you need and more! Kylie welcomed us with wine, beer, water and snacks! So thoughtful.

I thought I would use the kitchen more but there are too many yummy restaurants nearby. Kylie has suggestions for you that are great! We would add Enoteca to the list (pizza, pasta and if you are lucky, Manuel for your waiter)

The beds are comfy, nice towels and great supplies on hand (toilet paper, paper towels etc)

Easy access to grocery stores and the subway!

Kylie suggested using the app Citymapper and I loved it for navigating the subway and even just walking to a destination.

It was really nice to come "home" after the hustle and bustle of Manhattan.

Backyard is a relaxing area, sit out on the lounge chair and listen to the birds sing and children playing at the nearby school. I even jumped on the trampoline 😊!

We would highly recommend this apartment and would definitely use it again!

Thank you so much Kylie!!

Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for us (3 sisters). It's very well equipped with everything we could have needed - plus many extras. 2 blocks from the subway to Manhattan and within walking distance of many things in Brooklyn - perfect. Our hosts were wonderful - friendly and helpful. We'd definitely recommend it to friends and stay here again. Thanks.
