About Owner - Stephanie

We have lived in our two family townhouse since we purchased it in 1998. We love Fort Greene and are happy to introduce travelers to Brooklyn and our neighborhood in particular. Also one of the great benefits of our home is its close proximity to 11 different subway lines and Manhattan, making it incredibly convenient!

A great stay in the heart of Fort Greene

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this apartment. The location was great, right round the corner from the Barclay Center, and very convenient for trains. We spent a day in Manhattan and a day at Coney Island.

Fantastic holiday in Brooklin

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous week in Fort Greene Apartment at the end of July.

The flat was beautiful and very well maintained. It was just being at home! The location is great: all you need is is just near the corner.

The owner Stephanie lives on the first floor so if you need something she's there to help you. She gave us some information about the best beaches of New York.....Coney Island is the best one and not so far from the apartment .

If we decide to go again to Brooklin next year we'll surely chose this apartment.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The flat is really awesome : we keep on telling it to our friends when talking about our vacation. Very well equipped (thanks IKEA ! 😀)..we didn't miss anything. Perfect for 5/6 people (we were 5) - the backyard so nice for breakfast or aperitive !

And most of all, its incredible situation ! So close from the subway...either C/R on one side or all the others (at least 10 different lines) on the other side..no more than 2 minute walking distance. (Same for the Target to make shopping and buy anything you need)

.sooo convenient. We reached Manhattan in 15 minutes.

Stephanie answered so quickly to all our assistance requests (starting process of the laundry machine, or the electric problem...).

A perfect stay and I highly recommend this place if you are 4-6 people

Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay here. The rooms were very spacious (at one point there were 6 of us staying in the apartment - 4 adults and 2 children ages 10 and 12) and the location was perfect. The apartment is located within 2-4 blocks of various subway stations. Access to any part of the city is easy. There are wonderful restaurants nearby and markets within walking distance should you want to cook at home. Stephanie, the owner, was reachable, knowledgeable, and kind. I would recommend this property and would easily stay here again should I find myself back in the area.

Lovely apartment in a fantastic neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. Our family slipped comfortably into the illusion that we really were Fort Greene locals, and the apartment felt like home. Comfortable, spacious, clean, friendly hosts, lots of local guidance, with plenty of restaurants, grocers, coffee (go to Smooch for a proper Australian latte), the Brooklyn Nets a stroll away, Spike Lee down the street, the Flea, the great park, and the best bookstore around the corner - it was everything we needed.

Stay here!

We are located in Fort Greene, Brooklyn a hip historic brownstone neighborhood that is well known as a sought after happening place conveniently located with a very short subway or taxi ride to Manhattan (approx. 10 to 15 minutes downtown). In Fort Greene there are many shops, restaurants, fine food stores. Further the Brooklyn Academy of Music has 2 theatres where the finest plays, dance performance and music shows occur along with a cinema. If you come on the weekend don't miss the Brooklyn Flea famous for its food, vintage and new artisan goods! Finally we have a beautiful and relaxing park designed by the architects of Central Park!
