About this listing

My lovely, comfortable 2 BR w/garden has that true Brownstone Brooklyn feel! Great Prospect Heights location on pretty block close to Prospect Park, subways and the Brooklyn Museum. Charming landmarked neighborhood with many great restaurants nearby.

The space

Our apt is a homey, comfortable, convenient place on the top floor of a charming Brooklyn brownstone. It has a new kitchen with adjoining dining room. There are 2 bedrooms; the first one is very quiet and sunny with a queen bed, overlooking neighbors' gardens and the second is a larger child's room with a single twin bed and a pull out single twin-sized trundle bed. The dining room and living room have an open floor plan. The dining area seats 6 at the table, and the bar seats 4. The living room has 2 sofas, cable tv with DVD player, and stereo. There is a private garden with table and chairs for outdoor meals, and a comfortable chaise lounge for reading and napping! It is a typical Brooklyn brownstone apartment with nice wood floors. There are ceiling fans and air-conditioners in the bedrooms to keep it cool.

This is a beautifully appointed apartment in a fun and pleasant residential neighborhood in Brooklyn - very close to the subway, the park, and a ton of hip restaurants. Karen is really nice and very accommodating, and the lodgings pleased even my picky father. :)

We had a wonderful time at Karen's apartment exploring the neighborhood and eating at fantastic restaurants. The apartment is conveniently located close to public transportation and you can be in Manhattan fairly quickly if you so choose. But there is so much to do in family-friendly Brooklyn, you may decide to stay put and enjoy the sites and the culture! The apartment was quite cozy and comfortable for our family of four and I would definitely recommend it to family and friends!

Karen's lovely brownstone made the perfect home base for a visit with my daughter, who lives in the neighborhood. The home is a lovely and comfortable space. The location is excellent - near Prospect Park, between several different subway lines, and close to charming restaurants and pubs.

Staying at Karen's home was a wonderful experience. The ambiance and decoration of her beautiful home provides a wonderful place to stay and work in this Brooklyn neighborhood. Karen herself was extremely friendly, helpful, and super responsive to any questions or requests. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to stay in this neighborhood who is also looking for a great host, and an inviting home to stay. Thank you Karen!!!

My boyfriend and I had a great stay at Karen's apartment! Her space is relaxing and homey. We loved the leafy view of the garden, comfortable bed, good sized kitchen, and large couches. We are familiar with the neighborhood and chose this spot because of how centrally located it is to transportation, shopping, and the park. Karen was not present during our stay as we rented the space as "entire apt." She met with us prior to our first night and was thoughtful and communicative about showing us the space and telling us the house rules (common sense things).

The apartment is nice and cozy. We didn't spend much time there, basically just slept there... We didn't cook, but it seemed to be a fully equipped kitchen. The location is very good, safe and pretty area of Brooklyn with easy access to good restaurants, Prospect Park, etc. Karen seems very accommodating, though we didn't ask anything of her during our stay. She responds immediately by text if you contact her which is nice.

Hey there. I'm a free-lance film editor, a landlord, an adjunct professor and a world traveling single-mom. I've rented out my apt a few times before to neighbors who wanted a place for their visiting parents to stay, and I did a home exchange once with some lovely Parisians. Both times worked out great, so when a friend told me about Airbnb, it sounded right up my alley.
