Spacious and quiet bi-level apartment, includes two bedrooms, two full bathrooms,a large eat-in kitchen, a comfy study, the sun room and of course the garden.

The space

This is a custom renovated home with attention to detail in euro-style.
The rooms in the apartment are large, have lots of light and wood floors.
One bedroom has a queen size bed, the other two single beds that can be arranged either together or separately. Fresh linens and plenty large towels are provided.
There are two full bathrooms, one on each floor, with open showers.
The Kitchen is fully equipped with high-end appliances and cookware, and stocked with plenty of spices, oils, coffee and tea, ideal if you love eating in.
The study has a large flat screen tv and a daybed that can be set up as an additional bed for an extra person upon request (see extra person pricing).
The heart of the house is the light flooded sunroom, and the terrace that leads to the backyard.

You will enjoy the greenery both indoors and out as well as the company of one self-sufficient orange tabby cat. No litter box maintenance required but you will be asked to kindly fill his bowl daily. He spends most of his time lounging in/-and outdoors, with no access to the bedrooms. Being an outdoor cat, he sheds quite a bit, especially during the warmer season. Please make sure nobody in your party suffers from cat allergies.

A wonderful experience! Love Doris's very homey home and love the neighbourhood! Parking out front is always easy. Easy access to the Ikea ferry which is just 20 minutes to Manhattan.

Dodo's place was wonderful and very comfortable. She herself was very accommodating when we arrived late in the evening; she even stocked the kitchen with breakfast fixings. Free parking everyday right in front the house was a big plus. Comfortable beds, luxurious rainshowers, working woodstove; all was good! Love the neighborhood, had a really fantastic meal at the Good Fork a few blocks away. Taxi into Manhattan was $18 and back was just $15. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Doris was an incredibly accommodating and generous host! From late-heads up, to changes of guest nrs, she took it all in stride. Her home is beyond beautiful, and will provide a Red Hook experience like non other. Couldn't recommend it more.

What fun to write about our stay in:Red Hook, Brooklyn!We rented a great house ( the4 of us) and it was Fantastic, lots of rooms, 2 great bathrooms, a sauna , garden etc. wonderful atmosphere and great to be in Red Hook. Red Hook is so totally cool and different from Manhattan, so you wake up in the quietness , village feel ,there,s nice little restaurants and bars, nature and water! Then, Manhattan excitement! We feel homesick already!Make sure we,ll be renting this house next year, with Darling Dodo, who owns the house and takes real good care of it ! Thanks for a Fantastic vacation! Groet.

We had a fabulous time at Dodo's home. She was so warm and welcoming. The home was in a central location that made it easy to get a Uber car, bus and walk to a HUGE supermarket. The home is spacious and really unique. I would not hesitate to stay there again. In fact I look forward to it. Mr Cat made it feel like home.

You will not go wrong staying at Dodo's Large Garden apartment in Red Hook. Oxygen giving green plants throughout the apartment and a beautiful glass-filled room looking over the backyard garden creates an interesting and quieting effect. The decor is also enchanting, a mix of shabby chic, elegance, and industrial. All of it well organized and functional. We enjoyed the wood burning fireplace and reading in the backyard room, Mr.Cat, and the large kitchen table. The neighborhood had everything a person needs with an exceptional grocery store. Dodo is very welcoming and easily available for any questions.

Staying in Dodo's house in Red Hook Brooklyn,feels a little bit like coming home, even if you are far away from home. It was our first time in NY and we have never heard about Red Hook, but it was a fine place to stay, even if the Metro is 25 min. away by bus. The neighbourhood includes good restaurant's, a big supermarket and friendly people. Dodo's house was perfect for a family at four. Specially two bathrooms were nice. When we arrived late at night, there was cold beers in the refrigerator, very thoughtful, and so is Dodo, she cares about her guest and we feld very welcome. We would love to visit Red Hook and Mr. Cat again

I love plants; working with and talking about them, or just observing them, they make me happy.
Fortunately my other big love, traveling, matches this perfectly.
