Overview

About the property

Guests enjoy a charming one bedroom apartment above Brooklyn Farmacy, our storefront soda fountain, in family-friendly Carroll Gardens.

Enjoy the neighborhood from the privacy of own apartment, or pop downstairs to mingle with the regulars at the fountain counter. A favorite with locals and tourists alike, the Brooklyn Farmacy is a prohibition-era drug store restored as an ice cream parlor. Pete & Gia, sibling proprietors, live in the building and will be your hosts and neighbors.

The guest apartment is a lovely, sun-drenched, second floor space, comfortably furnished and seductively simple. The bedroom offers a queen size bed, luxurious bedding, and plenty of closet/wardrobe space. An air mattress can be used for a 3rd person or child. The bathroom is tastefully tiled and the water is plenty hot! The kitchen is stocked with cooking needs and complimentary coffee and tea from the Farmacy.

Carroll Gardens is one of Brooklyn’s most desirable locations. You will be blocks away from the restaurants and boutiques of Court Street as well as the artisanal shops and bars of Smith Street. Take the kids to play at the fabulous Pier Six, take in a concert at Brooklyn Bridge Park or walk the Brooklyn Heights esplanade for great views of the Manhattan skyline. Spas, movie theaters, farmer’s markets, salons, banks and dry cleaners are abundant. A fifteen minute subway ride on the F train gets you to Manhattan and a slightly longer one takes you to Coney Island and the beach.

Enjoy the 21st century buzz of Brooklyn while stepping back into time. Send the kids down to the soda fountain to spin on the red twirling stools, play checkers, and sip egg creams at the end of the day. If you're visiting friends and family in the area, you'll have a great place to meet and greet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the moment we walked in we felt completely relaxed and at home. Our hosts were so very welcoming and the apartment was clean and neat with fresh flowers on the table. In Brooklyn for our daughter’s wedding, it was the perfect spot, with beautiful décor, the space roomy and comfortable and very convenient to everything we needed We enjoyed the wonderful hot shower and comfortable bed! We felt like we could easily blend into Brooklyn life from this location and wished we had had more time to enjoy all the food and fun offered at the Farmacy Soda Shop. We would definitely come back and stay here when we find ourselves in Brooklyn again.

Great Location and Lovely Apartment

  • 4 of 5

This is a very cool retro apartment above a fabulous ice cream parlour! The owners, Pete and Joanie are very accommodating. This was our second visit as our daughter lives close by and we would stay here again. The only slight negative is that you do get the music seeping through from the ice cream parlour, but is shuts off at 10pm. Do visit, the Farmacy, they do a great breakfast and fabulous ice creams. Highly recommend this apartment, it is clean and very welcoming.

A great time in Brooklyn!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is so quaint and comfortable. It is a little noisy in the late evening after a long day walking in the city. Not too noisy to keep you up though. All of the amenities were well thought out and perfect. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We now love Brooklyn! The subway stop closeby is carroll....dont look for president or smith on the map.

A really comfortable and charming apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This perfect for us as we were near our daughter, son in law and two grand daughters also on Henry Street. Everyone has been so kind and welcoming, and we felt very much at home. We were happy to spend time in the apartment on snowy or rainy days, and slept really well in the very comfortable bed.

All in all, everything was just what we wanted and we've had a lovely stay.

Thank you!

Jackie and Steve

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures say it all! The apartment was large with a bedroom and sitting room/dining room. The bathroom has an excellent shower with LOTS of thick towels. The bed is cozy and comfortable and the mattress is neither too hard or too soft. We look forward to staying here again whenever it's available. Definitely the best place we've stayed in Carol Garden/Cobble Hill and we've stayed in a lot of places. The Farmacy downstairs has good food and delicious desserts!
