Our charming 1BR garden apt in Park Slope is on a tree-lined block and features exposed brick, hardwood floors, tin ceilings and a backyard patio. Near subways, shops, dining and Prospect Park, you'll love this base for exploring Brooklyn and beyond.
Our lovely 680 sq. ft. garden apartment is on the 1st floor of a 3 story Federal brick attached townhouse built in 1899. The bedroom features a four poster queen size bed, oak dresser and desk, as well as French doors that open out onto the patio and backyard. The kitchen has a refrigerator, stove, microwave, pans and utensils (the kitchen is not super modern or swank, but completely functional). A small dining nook is adjacent to the kitchen (or better yet, dine on the patio!) Original tin ceiling, wood floors and exposed brick grace the living area, along with a decorative (nonworking) fireplace/mantel. Flat screen TV, cable, and gaming system are also in the living area for entertainment. The apartment is ideal for two adults - three adults is cozy, but fine. Two adults and a child is comfortable. A queen size Aerobed-type inflatable is available on request.
Disponible para huéspedes
Guests have a private entrance to the apartment and a private entrance to the patio and backyard. The backyard is shared with our family, but we can often honor requests for exclusive use.
Atención a los huéspedes
Someone is at home, or nearby, almost every day and evening, and we are available to assist you in whatever way we can, while offering as much privacy as you require. We have lived in the area for over 15 years and can give you advice should you want or need it.

We have a very sweet dog, a Golden Doodle named Charlie. You may see him in the upstairs window, or hear him (and us) moving around upstairs, but noise from upstairs will be minimal. Charlie doesn't shed (no allergy concerns) and only barks occasionally and briefly, usually when someone approaches the house. John is a business owner in the neighborhood, so he is in the house frequently and just blocks away when he's not. Becky works in Manhattan for the standard M-F, 8-6 workday. We have three teen-age sons who are usually away when we rent, but might sometimes be around the house. All three are mindful of our guests, polite and helpful.
Please respect and protect our home as you would your own. No smoking, parties or excessive noise inside or out. A couple of visitors are acceptable, but not late and not overnight. We insist that you respect our neighbors both in front of the house and on the patio. Sorry, we have a strict no pets policy.
John is a longtime restaurateur and owns a successful place here in Park Slope. In addition to his passions for food, wine, hospitality, and soccer, he enjoys being a youth sports volunteer as a coach, referee and administrator. Becky is a publication producer who loves good books, roof gardening, and being a mom to our three teenage sons. We are both Midwesterners who've resided in NYC since the eighties. Our various responsibilities generally keep us close to home these days, but we have traveled far and wide on the planet, and we enjoy learning more about the world through our guests.
