    Had a very enjoyable stay beginning May 4,2012. Very cute updated apartment on a tree-lined street with lots of shopping a block or two away. Everything was ready when we arrived and we were greeted by the owner shortly after arriving. Bright and cheery apartment access to the back yard. A plus for our grandchildren whom we were visiting. Only a few steps into the apartment which was great for a grandmother's knees! Subway transportation was handy. We didn't use it, but our son and family used it to visit us. We were able to find on-street parking either on the block or around the corner. That helped for carrying in luggage. We would definitely stay here again. 11 May 2012 - 19:40:45

    We have stayed at this apt 2 times and are looking forward to our next visit. The extra bedroom is very convenient and love the washer and dryer. The added benefit are the adorable children. 22 May 2012 - 23:13:35

    We were delighted to stay in this apartment for 2 weeks with our 1 year old daughter. Everything seemed to be thought of and provided and the apartment had real charm and comfort. Melissa, Marcello and their children were very welcoming and made our stay easy and relaxed. We would recommend this apartment to anyone, very family friendly, a good location close to the subway and the great local neighborhood restaurants. 02 July 2012 - 19:39:04
  5. We had a wonderful time visiting our family in Carroll Gardens due in large part to our stay in this cozy apartment. Everything was clean and neat. Melissa and her husband were gracious hosts and made us feel quite welcome. The location couldn't have been better. We'd love to stay here again! 24 October 2012 - 01:05:11

    We had a wonderful time in NY and staying in this apartment was a big part of why we enjoyed our visit. The neighborhood and the apartment are delightful and it is easy access to restaurants as well as subways and taxis. This apartment has everything you can think of included and was clean and very well decorated. I can't think of anything I would change. It felt roomy which is tough to find in NY. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat and look forward to the opportunity to stay here again. I give this place a big thumbs up. 19 November 2012 - 21:55:38

    This apartment is wonderful, clean, and centrally located to everything in Brooklyn and the subway. The owner is friendly and easy to work. We have stayed here twice. It is perfect for 2 people and fully equipped. 12 January 2013 - 02:36:53
  8. My husband, my teenage daughter and I spent 4 nights in Melissa's lovely apartment in April. The pictures don't do it justice! It was very quiet, comfortable and well equipped and Melissa was very responsive and easy to work with. Carroll St is one of the prettiest streets in a nice neighborhood. The Carroll St subway stop is very close by, as are many nice shops, restaurants and cafes. 24 April 2013 - 23:58:50

    I love this apartment. It is well furnished with all amenities, including a hairdryer which I was not sure about before I arrived. It was extremely clean and bright. The location is perfect: a quiet side street one block from the subway and close to shops, restaurants, bars and a small park. The owner is helpful and her two little girls are delightful. Having access to the back yard is a real plus. It was lovely to sit there and eat breakfast in the sun. The only drawback was very spotty cell-phone reception on my AT&T phone. (I think Verizon works better in NY) but I found it worked in the bedroom and the back yard. I would definitely recommend this property to my friends and plan to stay there again. 14 May 2013 - 00:02:51

    We, couple with a 10 year old son from The Netherlands, stayed 5 nights. The apartment is perfect. Nicely decorated and clean and really quiet (sound of birds in the morning). The location is even more perfect. Safe, subway to Manhattan around the corner and in short walking distance countless breakfast, lunch, diner, coffee places, deli's, (organic) food shops and fashion stores. The owner quickly responded to any question we had and we would recommend this place certainly. We loved it! 12 May 2013 - 12:19:59

    we have just left (reluctantly) this fantastic place - a fully self contained apartment and very, very clean and a lovely space outside (we were too busy to take advantage of the garden), but we did hear birds every day. The area is perfect and the subway is 2 minutes away. A great option to stay in a quiet beautiful area and then tour wherever around Manhattan or New Jersey. We will return. thank you Melissa 10 June 2013 - 20:49:43

    My husband and our two young kids (6 and 1) had a great visit to Brooklyn (despite the unbearable heat!). The apartment was perfect for us - the little 'half' room was great for the 6 year old and the owner gave us use of their pack n play for the baby. The kitchen/tv area is spacious and well lit with big windows... sheets/towels nice quality... bathroom, common areas were super clean. The place is half a block from a street packed with great restaurants and a playground for the kiddos. Subway is a block away. AND, the owner is terrific too - very responsive to a small problem we had - going above and beyond to make sure we had a good visit. We HIGHLY recommend this place! Especially if you want to get out of 'the city' and have a great NY neighborhood visit. 25 July 2013 - 13:41:59

    We enjoyed our stay immensely. Immaculate and comfortable apartment. Everything as described and shown in photos. Kitchen very well equipped. On prime block in vibrant neighborhood, Lovely neighborhood for walking.. 2 short blocks from subway. We were ex-NYers, and it almost felt like we were back in our own home. Very child friendly neighborhood; nice wooded playground 1 block away. Huge number of restaurants, but also great food shopping for eating in. 05 August 2013 - 03:39:06

    We had a delightful Christmas stay here. The apartment was cozy and comfortable, spotless, well designed and appointed, and on a quiet and convenient block. Melissa is charming and helpful. The area has lots of interesting shops, parks, bars and restaurants, and the F and G trains are at the corner. Highly recommended! 02 January 2015 - 23:47:52

    This charming condo was perfect for four nights over Christmas. It was walking distance to my daughters condo as well as to the subway, stores, shops, Saturday farmers market, and church. It had everything we neededas I said, it was just perfect! 27 December 2017 - 13:35:00
