Stayed here with my family, 7 in total, so we booked the whole house for a week. Don was very welcoming and hospitable, with useful advice about Brooklyn and New York. The house is very comfortable and tastefully furnished. Much more space than we have ever had in a New York hotel. It is very easy to get about and explore all the city from here - 20 minutes and you are in Mannhatten. There is also lots to do in and around Park Slope which is a very attractive neighbourhood, with lots of good and reasonably priced bars and restaurants.
Taking over the whole house was also a real bonus as it provided a great base, where we felt comfortable and very much at home.
The breafasts were excellent and set us up for a full day exploring.
The art deco bathroom on the 2nd floor is a marvel.
