Description

The space

This is a large one bedroom apartment which takes up the entire second floor of our private house. The apartment has a private entrance, a full bathroom, eat-in kitchen, living room, and big bedroom with a king size bed. One of the couches in the living room can be converted into a full size bed to accommodate another adult couple or kids. The apartment is sunny and quiet with leafy great views out the front and back windows, along with two skylights and chirping birds. There is internet access and a TV with basic service.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the entirety of the second floor - it's own one bedroom apartment.

Interaction with guests

We don't interact much with guests but do live in the apartment directly below the rental and share the same front door and front hall, so we often see people in passing and are very happy to help out with recommendations about the neighborhood, transit, etc.

The neighbourhood

Greenwood Heights is a sweet unpretentious neighborhood with amazing views of the harbor, Statue of Liberty, and the historic Greenwood Cemetery, site of the Battle of Brooklyn in the Revolutionary War, and National Historical Landmark, and just a beautiful place to take a walk among old growth trees. There is an ever-growing scene of small independent restaurants and bars and it is a 5 minute walk to some of our favorite local spots: a sweet little coffee shop, an upscale farm-to-table restaurant, and a great gourmet Italian pizza place, and bar with an award-winning backyard garden.

Getting around

It is a 10 min walk to the R train at Prospect St or the F train at 15th St. Parking is readily available on the street.

Claire and Edward were very helpful, plus responded very quick when we were preparing our trip. Apartment spacious and with lots of light, just as it appears in the photos. And warm, which was good as the weather was mostly grey and rainy while we were there!

This is a nice large, clean one bedroom apartment in Park Slope - close to transportation, restaurants and shops. The hosts are very nice and welcoming. The only suggestion I have is that it could use some additional places to hang and store clothing. But, all in all, it was great. The kitchen is well-stocked and the living room is large and uncluttered. Very good experience.

The apartment is spacious and clean. The neighborhood is excellent. The only downfall was that Claire forgot to leave extra linens for the futon, extra towels and blankets (it got cold while we were there). Luckily I grew up in the area and had family that could lend me all of that. She and her family were out since it was Columbus day weekend and had apologized for the over sight.

Really nice neighborhood, family-friendly and quiet. Claire was great to communicate with and very respectful of our privacy. We will be back!

We arrived a bit late, but Claire was nice enough to wait for us. After a warm welcome and some suggestions on where to find what we needed in the neighborhood, we got settled and spent a few great days in this wonderful little apartment. Sleeps 3 very comfortably, the main bedroom has a huge bed and the pullout sofa is more than decent.

Claire is a great host. So helpful and nice. Will definitely come back to stay at her place, which is in a very nice neighborhood in Brooklyn.

We both grew up in the Midwest (the Twin Cities and Southwestern Michigan, respectively). We've been in New York for about 20 years and are raising our daughters here in Brooklyn. We renovated the upstairs apartment of our house so our parents could come hang out with us, and their granddaughters (that's who they're most interested in). When they're not here, we rent out the place - mostly to other grandparents who are visiting the Park Slope area, but we're open to whoever is interested.

We're both psychologists, both pretty laid back. We're happy to help people navigate the area and just generally get settled in.
