Lovely apartment, full of character, on the top floor of an end terrace brownstone. The apartment is very welcoming, spacious and well set out and clean with all the usual facilities. The stairs are old and a little creaky, adding to the character but possibly not suitable for those with physical challenges. The neighbourhood is friendly with people sitting on their stoops of an evening. There is a local market for necessities just across the road and nearby cafés for wonderful croissants. Well placed for express trains to Manhattan or Coney Island, and walkable or only a few stops to other Brooklyn areas, Dumbo, Brooklyn Heights and Prospect Park etc. We only met our hosts when arriving and leaving but they were very friendly and helpful and booking the apartment was very easy and quick. Highly recommend and would return without hesitation.
This was The first time I had ever did anything like this and I have to say I was really skeptical no that's not the word Scared.. Yea Scared, being in a different state meeting new people and not going the traditional Hotel route Never mind the Fact I watch too many movies..lol But my Worries and fears quickly dwindled away when I met Margot .. Love Love Love .. her greeting was so Warm she met us at the front door she showed us around the home and Kept it real... Letting us know our options from the start ... her hospitality gave us a family feel like no other and I appreciate that .. she suggested different areas to visit and good Eats; we even got some cool treads from her Boutique Just below where we were staying....I cant wait to visit again...
We loved this apartment. Home from home in Brooklyn, loads of character, super easy to get into Manhattan and great for when you've had enough of being a tourist. Stayed here with my teenage daughter. No problems with subway at night after Broadway etc. - felt safe, plenty of people around. Margot and Baba great hosts - even getting up at 4.30am to see us into the taxi to the airport. Thank you for a great week.
