“Perfect location for travel within Brooklyn or over to Manhattan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2011

We visit NYC at least once per year, to visit family. After staying at CGH twice now, and at their other property the year before, there is no way I would stay anywhere else when visiting. We usually bring our two young children, and this neighborhood is perfect for kids. The playground is right there, and plenty of wonderful, family-friendly eats are nearby. You MUST check out Lucali's for pizza. Get there early if you have kids, because they don't take reservations. The subway is located just two blocks away, and you can take the G train cross-town throughout Brooklyn or the F train into Manhattan (only a few stops away). This area is perfect for couples too, because it's super hip with tons of drinking and dining options. There is an awesome wine store called Scotto's if you want to BYOB to some of the restaurants or to enjoy at home. Plus, all the food delivery options...it's pretty easy to get just about anything delivered to CGH if you've done enough walking for the day and wish to stay in. Finally, there is a laundry service 1 block away so you can pack light, and take everything over there for wash-n-fold. Thanks Joe and Jamie for offering us a reliable, clean, convenient, and absolutely adorable brownstone flat as an option when we visit NYC. Hotels no more for this family!

We loved feeling like a New Yorker while staying at Carroll Gardens. The old Brownstone was beautiful on the inside and the outside. The apartment was clean and modern. The size was just right for my son and me. Loved it!

Stayed in Carroll Gardens House for my daughters wedding and it was perfect. Excellent location to everything we needed to do and subway right down the street. Only a short walk to my daughters apartment in Brooklyn Heights. Loved being across street from cute park and many "really good" restaurants within easy walking distance. My husband walked out for coffee early every morning and tested out four different places. Wedding was at Frankies 457 Spuntino, again within walking distance, and was fabulous. Thank you Jamie and Joe for sharing your beautiful brownstone with us. We will be back.

We have stayed in both apartments and love the location.
Furnished with everything we need if we want to stay in for the evening.
Transportation from here to anywhere in the city is easy but you can stay right in the neighborhood and have a great time.

Room Tip: Both apartments have the same view. The one on the top floor has a more private extra bedroom.

I live in Carroll Gardens and needed to rent apartments to put up family for my wedding. These 4 units are the best quality and value to be found in the neighborhood and based on what we saw in other parts of Brooklyn probably the best in Brooklyn. The owners are very helpful and the locations are great, very close to the subway and all the restaurants and shops on Smith Street. The apartments are clean and tastefully furnished.

Room Tip: One unit has a roof terrace
