About listing

Guests enjoy a charming one bedroom apartment above Brooklyn Farmacy, our storefront soda fountain, in family-friendly Carroll Gardens. Enjoy the neighborhood from the privacy of own apartment, 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 space, comfortably furnished and seductively simple. The bedroom offers a queen size bed, luxurious bedding, and plenty of closet/wardrobe space. An air mattress can be used for a 3rd person or child. The bathroom is tastefully tiled and the water is plenty hot! The kitchen is stocked with cooking needs and complimentary coffee and tea 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.

    This is a terrific place to stay that exceeded my expectations in every way. The apartment has a great location, is nicely decorated and really clean, with nice amenities and just about everything one could possibly need. Joannie, the host, is attentive, super nice, and extremely efficient. I would absolutely stay again the next time I am lucky enough to be visiting the New York area. Highly recommended. 19 June 2017 - 17:46:00

    Close to public transportation so you can enjoy the city, within a quaint neighborhood with all the amenities, inside and out. Good restaurants, an italian bakery, grocery stores, even a spa nearby, and the apartment has everything to make it feel like home. I'll be back. 06 July 2017 - 00:52:00

    We found this little gem to be in a great location, near our daughter in Carroll Gardens, near the subway, and near a grocery store! But what we enjoyed as much as the comforts of the place was the ice-cream parlor right below us! We will happily stay here again when we visit Brooklyn! 27 July 2017 - 02:17:00

    Two friends and I had to go to NYC for a conference. We decided to stay in this apartment bc it was centrally located and had easy access to restaurants, groceries, and the subway. When we arrived we were wowed from the beginning as our host welcomed us personally and gave us a tour of the property. Needless to say the flat was perfect! The decor was lovely and it had absolutely everything that we could need. From an iron, to great coffee from Brooklyn Roasters. Everything was amazing! I will totally stay here if I ever come back to the area. 24 June 2016 - 11:13:46

    The apartment is REALLY CHARMING, very nicely decorated making it really cozy. Although we didnt spend much time in it (just sleeping) it is very well equipped with everything you may need for cooking in case you plan to do so. The location is EXCELLENT. Located in a very nice, quiet and safe area with all the facilities just around the corner (supermarket, deli, cafe, citibikes dockstation, etc) The Brooklyn Farmacy ( below is a cool spot that you cannot miss. If possible, don`t miss La Vara restaurant just a few blocks from the apt, if you appreciate good food in a simple and cozy place. There is another great place in 5th Ave -The Gristmill-, dont miss it! Excellent excellent food and very nice patio in the back. We really enjoyed walking and biking around the neighborhood discovering these nice spots. This apt is an excellent choice if you want to have a different experience in NY. Staying and living Brooklyn was a + for our stay. The only cons, is the entrance to the building/apt which has a very steep stair which could make it really difficult for older people or people with any physical difficulty... For the rest, it is perfect. No doubt, a safe choice. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did. 25 October 2017 - 21:37:00

    The apt was soooo lovely. Immaculate and much bigger than we expected. Decor is charming and the amenities and bed are awesome. Such a lovely and quiet escape at the end of the day, though Caroll Gardens is worth hanging out in for the Brooklyn charm. Hostess was very responsive and helpful. Would give the apt 6 stars if I could. Best VRBO to date in my books. 03 September 2017 - 23:02:00

    The apartment suited our needs very well although we were not in the apartment very much - breakfast and sleeping. It was great to have the kitchen so we could start the day making a big breakfast. The neighborhood is very safe and close enough to public transportation. The apartment is quiet, clean, and comfortable. It was just right for the two of us. The shower is awesome - great water pressure and "rain" type showerhead. Also, the free street parking was easy! It is hard to swallow paying $40 - $70 a night to park in Manhattan. That said, we spent most of our time in Manhattan although we did get to visit the Greenwood cemetery and the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens (free on Tuesdays) as well as walk the Brooklyn Bridge. The value of staying at a bit less expensive place and free parking was important to us but the trade-off was late nights "commuting" back from Manhattan. All in all, it was a great stay and we would stay again! Thank you for having us! 20 August 2017 - 17:58:00

    I would highly recommend this apartment! It's charming, clean and spacious. The owners are extremely quick in responding to any requests. I'm a stickler for hot water and water pressure and the shower had both. The surrounding neighborhood is quaint and fun to explore. The one and only very slight drawback was the extra time it took us to get into Manhattan as apposed to staying in Manhattan but the cost savings and the exposure to Brooklyn along with our gracious hosts made it well worth the extra time. Plus the Brooklyn Farmacy located right downstairs is a must to visit. Their desserts are fabulous and the atmosphere makes you feel like you're taking a step back in time to a bygone era. Definfitely worth the stay!!! I would stay there again in a heartbeat. 07 December 2017 - 22:29:00

    My husband, our goldendoodle, and I stayed here during the ChristmasNew Year holidays in 2017. We loved our experience from the very first email I sent to Joannie. The host is super friendly, communication with her was excellent, and we loved the apartment. Great neighborhood to experience Brooklyn, with easy access to Manhattan. Highly recommended. 02 January 2018 - 16:47:00

    We loved this Carroll Gardens property! Well-situated above the Brooklyn Farmacy, close to shops, bakeries, restaurants and an easy walk to the subway/quick access to Manhattan. The apartment is quiet, immaculate and well-appointed, with lots of attention to detail that makes the stay easy and enjoyable. Hosts are gracious and thoughtful. Would stay again in a heartbeat. 05 January 2018 - 00:43:00

    So despite having the worst head cold ever and the fact that New York had a snowmageddon event of biblical proportions, this was easily my best HA experience ever. The spot is perfectly located in a sleepy neighborhood with a nearby grocery and liquor store, not to mention tons of places to eat nearby. Youre close to the trains and a short hop from the city. Everything wonderful you need is in the apartment tho. Deep tub. Hot hot hot water. Water pressure. Comfy bed. Place to cook. Entertainment. Then there are the owners who are kind and decent and understandingfor example, when I stupidly tripped and spilled coffee all over their Snow White comforter. They are thoughtful and responsive and more than you could ask for. Truly can not recommend them or this place enough. 07 January 2018 - 16:50:00

    Visiting family and loved being right around the corner from them. Appointed perfectly. No need to cook with the Farmacy downstairs! Next visit we will take both one bedroom and two bedroom units. Just remember you will hear the other rental unit and if it is a crying child you will know. Good thing we LOVE kids 14 January 2018 - 14:05:00
