About listing

Guests enjoy a charming two bedroom apartment above Brooklyn Farmacy, our storefront soda fountain, in family-friendly Carroll Gardens. Enjoy the neighborhood from the privacy of your corner room with a view, or pop downstairs to mingle with the regulars at the fountain counter. A favorite with locals and tourists alike, the Brooklyn Farmacy is a prohibition-era drug store restored as an ice cream parlor. Pete & Gia, sibling proprietors, live in the building and will be your hosts and neighbors. The guest apartment is a lovely, sun-drenched, second floor suite, comfortably furnished and seductively simple. Two bedrooms offer full size brass beds, luxurious bedding, and plenty of closet or wardrobe space. Sleep two more on the living room sleeper sofa. The single bathroom is tastefully tiled and the water is plenty hot! The modern kitchen is stocked with cooking needs and complimentary coffee, tea and seltzer from the Farmacy. Carroll Gardens is one of Brooklyn’s most desirable locations. You will be blocks away from the restaurants and boutiques of Court Street as well as the artisanal shops and bars of Smith Street. Take the kids to play at the fabulous Pier Six, take in a concert at Brooklyn Bridge Park or walk the Brooklyn Heights esplanade for great views of the Manhattan skyline. Spas, movie theaters, farmer’s markets, salons, banks and dry cleaners are abundant. A fifteen minute subway ride on the F train gets you to Manhattan and a slightly longer one takes you to Coney Island and the beach. Enjoy the 21st century buzz of Brooklyn while stepping back into time. Send the kids down to the soda fountain to spin on the red twirling stools, play checkers, and sip egg creams at the end of the day. If you're visiting friends and family in the area, you'll have a great place to meet and greet. TV/wifi access.

  1. The apartment was very comfortable and in a great Brooklyn location. 25 April 2017 - 17:17:00

    Our family (with 2 young boys) spent a week in Gia's apartment and it was a great choice. We were thankful to be away from the busyness of Manhattan but close enough on the subway to be in amidst the action in 15-30 minutes (depending on the destination). Carroll Garden was a lovely neighborhood and we particularly enjoyed the range of great, family-friendly restaurants to choose from each night, all within easy walking distance. The apartment was very spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed having a kitchen to prepare our breakfasts and end of day snacks etc. The Farmacy Soda Fountain downstairs was a popular dessert choice at the end of the evening. We would inevitably be dragged (not unwillingly) inside by our sons when we returned from dinner! Gia was very helpful and easy to contact with questions/concerns etc. We can't wait to return to NYC. 13 April 2017 - 02:56:00

    Our host and hostess were awesome. Super friendly, welcome, and accommodating in every way. We can't wait to come back again! 22 June 2017 - 13:53:00

    This place was great. Super cute, great location. Only issue was you have to go through one bedroom to access the other bedroom. We were staying with my sister and her husband, so it was fine. Just be sure you're close with the other people staying here, as they'll be in/out of your room often! Otherwise, this place was great. Would definitely stay again! 11 August 2017 - 16:48:00

    Le quartier de Caroll Garden est trs agrable, calme et reposant aprs l'agitation de Manhattan. L'appartement de Gia est superbe et fonctionnel (famille de 5). Situ proche du mtro (< 10 min pieds), il y a tout proximit: restaurant, bar, supermarch, etc.. L'accs Manhattan est simple et rapide. C'est le lieu idal pour un sjour NYC. Nous y retournerons sans hsiter. 14 August 2017 - 13:13:00
  6. It felt like being at home in a great neighborhood. Gia was helpful in all ways (and her diner downstairs serves the BEST biscuits...). Carroll Gardens is full of interesting little businesses and eateries and offers easy access by subway into Manhattan. The apartment was clean, comfortable and it had all the little creature comforts and personalized decor that make a person feel right at home. I would stay here again and recommend it to friends. 03 September 2017 - 14:23:00

    My family and I were lucky enough to stay in this beautiful apartment a few weeks ago. The apartment is sweetly decorated and plenty spacious enough for our party of five people. Gia (the owner) was very friendly and easy to reach if we had any questions etc. I would definitely recommend the apartment, and I hope we can stay there again next time we visit New York! 21 May 2014 - 07:09:51

    My family of 5 stayed in this fabulous apartment for 10 nights.It is exactly like the photos & more. It is in a great location, close to restaurants, delis, supermarket & laundromat. It is decorated nicely with plenty of linen, towels & blankets. Gia was around to offer help & advice when needed. It is very close to Carroll St subway station. We used the subway every day to get in & out of Manhattan. It is close enough to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge. The kitchen has everything you need if you feel like cooking & aircon is handy in 2 rooms. I would highly recommend this accom & would love to return one day!! 20 August 2014 - 11:49:49

    What a fantastic spot to use as a base to explore Brooklyn and New York. We loved this beautiful little apartment, with an abundance of fresh linen and towels and a host that was extremely helpful. Everything you could possibly need for a fabulous stay in the heart of Carroll Gardens. 21 October 2014 - 05:31:38

    Our family of 4 loved this apartment with its cool decor, easy access to delicious treats at the Farmacy downstairs and friendly walkable neighborhood (nice walk to Brooklyn promenade with great Manhattan views). Gia was a thoughtful and accessible host. Subway access is great. We most enjoyed exploring Brooklyn neighborhoods, especially Red Hook and Williamsburg. Favorite restaurants walkable from VRBO: Frankie's Sputino and Buttermilk Channel. 24 April 2015 - 02:19:37

    Gia and Erez were great hosts! Very easy to get a hold of and answered my questions in a timely manner. The location was perfect for my family, it really gave them a sense of the wonderful neighborhood. Looking forward to renting this apartment for future family visits! 15 May 2015 - 20:29:05

    Many positives: location - great, 3 blocks from subway, good restaurant and bars within easy walking distance, safe neighborhood and friendly residents, soda fountain with great deserts below, nice kitchen and bedrooms, excellent beds for comfort and cleanliness. Was also an owners representative living on site, who was helpful but not intrusive. Slight negative for us was the bedroom/ bathroom layout- had to go from one bedroom through the other to get to the bathroom - may be inconvenient for some. Some of our party felt the bathroom could use modernizing, but it was fully functional. Overall a very positive stay and we would use again. 19 May 2015 - 13:31:25

    Located in the wonderful neighborhood of Carroll Garden and above the nationally recognized Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Fountain (a must go to !), this beautifully furnished apartment offers not only an entry to exploring the neighborhoods of Brooklyn and as well as the other boroughs, but also a most relaxing environment in which to get away. Gia, Erez ,and their family are terrific and most helpful hosts. I felt like I was part of the family ! I not only heartily recommend this place , I do plan to return! This apartment is an enchanting way for all to experience New York City! 05 October 2015 - 13:05:18

    Spacious apartment, that was clean and very well stocked. Great location. Walking distance to Subway that went straight into NYC. Great local businesses in the neighborhood - restaurants, laundry & market. Highly recommend grabbing a sundae at the Farmacy downstairs too! 20 April 2017 - 01:29:00

  20. louise m.
    My husband, daughter and I enjoyed 3 nights at Carroll Gardens. The location was excellent with easy access to laundry, grocery shop, liquor shop, restaurants and subway etc. The neighbourhood was friendly and bustling with the activity of families living in the area. We loved the quirky decor, comfortable beds, lovely fresh linens, fabulous kitchen and good wifi. Gia was very accommodating and very easy to communicate with. Arrival time was easy as Gia lives and works at the same address. We happily recommend this app to others. 10 October 2016 - 13:02:00
