About Kylie Mills & Anthony Lennon

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 Mills & Anthony Lennon purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Kylie Mills & Anthony Lennon chose Brooklyn

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.

The apartment was perfect. It was clean and well appointed. Kylie was very accommodating, and we would stay here again if we were looking for something in this neighborhood.

Wonderful apartment for family of 4

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 people (2 adults and our two sons aged 16 and 19). who had a fantastic time in this new, lovely and modern apartment. It was so nice and clean and well appointed. The kitchen has all what is needed, and even a dish washer. We cooked our Christmas dinner (bought the food in the new Wholefood market 8 min. walk away) and had a great evening. The area was nice and felt very safe. Not least, it is completely quiet in the night and your sleep is guaranteed. We would love to come back!

Owner's Response: Happy New year and I am so delighted you enjoyed your stay over Christmas. The Whole Foods market is an excellent spot to shop for groceries. Even though there are many great restaurants in the area, it is nice to cook a meal and stay in some nights. I hope to see you back in NYC again soon. Thanks for your lovely review.

Comfortable, modern, well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

This apartment seems recently remodeled. It is modern, clean, and sunny. It is incredibly well-equipped, with a well-stocked kitchen with spices and cooking essentials and an excellent TV. Everything works well. The F train is two blocks away, as are stores and restaurants. Most importantly, the owner is incredibly responsive, usually answering inquiries within 15 minutes if not instantaneously. Great place!

Wonderful NYC vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

This Brooklyn VRBO is perfect. It is very clean and well decorated. The location is only two blocks from the F train into Manhattan. We could not have had a better time. The hosts are very friendly and had a crib already set up upon our arrival. They also had nice welcome treats. We highly recommend this rental and hope to return soon!

The convenience to Manhattan is a big plus whilst the local area is so nice and relaxing for a meal after a day of sightseeing. It was lovely to meet you and your family during your visit. Come again soon. Thank you. Kylie.

Immaculate apartment in a great neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 months in this immaculate apartment with very welcoming hosts. The apartment is extremely well equipped with everything you could need for a short or long term stay. The apartment is very comfortable and includes Fios TV, fast wifi and a washer/dryer. The hosts allow use of the garden which was fabulous during the summer months when our kids were able to use the trampoline and we were able to eat outside using the garden furniture. The garden includes an artificial grass area which provided a perfect safe play space for our baby.

The F train is 5 mins walk away and provides easy access to Manhatten. The local area is very family friendly with great cafes, restaurants and bars on Smith and Court street and in walking distance of Prospect Park and Park Slope. Great parks if you have kids and fab cocktail bars if you want to explore the nightlife!

Kylie and her family are perfect hosts. They are very welcoming and attentive and happy to provide recommendations / address any needs you have to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

I cannot recommend the apartment highly enough. We didn't want to leave!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words. It was fun for our kids to have playmates in the garden again! It was our pleasure to have you as our guests in this fun, family friendly neighbourhood. I am glad you managed to use our babysitter to experience the local nightlife. Please come back and visit again soon.
