Private, beautiful, open-plan, spacious apt in lively Brooklyn by gorgeous park. Full-floor, newly renovated, quiet, cozy (warm in winter, cool in summer). Great bars, restaurants, shops, 2 mins to subway (22 mins to Manhattan). LOTS of space (1000sq.ft./95sq.m). Tastefully decorated, well ventilated, peaceful. Large living room; sitting area; 1BR with windows facing garden. Private entrance + bathroom. No kitchen. Great for couples, adventurers, families, business travelers. NO PHOTO SHOOTS

The space

The entire, cozy, spacious, tranquil apartment is yours (yes, there are windows and light, because it is halfway above street level). VERY spacious (1,000 square feet — about 95 square meters), with its own, private entrance and its own private spa bathroom, 1 bedroom, living room, sitting area, hallway, washer-dryer (available upon request). New queen-size, eco-friendly, organic Keetsa-SoHo bed. We are happy to accommodate additional guests with a single bed in the living room: it is a sleeper cot with comfortable memory-foam mattress in the spacious living room area. Apparent brick, wood beams, vintage décor and antiques. No kitchen, but the apartment has a Mini Fridge, Nespresso machine, Electric Kettle, and Toaster. Also MANY inexpensive (or, if you prefer, expensive!) places to eat very close by, and also accessible by train or bus. A huge couch with throws for cozy lounging, a desk to sit and write at. A very large and lovely sanctuary to relax and unwind after a day in New York City, just steps from the beautiful Prospect Park.

Sam and Emily were thoughtful, communicative, graceful hosts. Their instructions made our arrival simple, and check in a complete breeze! Photos do not do this space justice. Much larger than expected and so tastefully decorated. A perfect Brooklyn haven!

Emily and Sam were great at communicating, we got responses after about 10-15 min tops if we had to ask or clarify something. The place itself if very large, fun and bright, you're getting the whole appartment to yourself. No kitchen though, but there's lots of fun food places to explore around. Very clean and tidy, it was a pleasure to stay here. Street parking can be a bit of a challenge, especially if you are not used to that. But in the end we always managed to find a spot, and we got very nice tips on where and when to park.

Sam and Emily offer a great place! Its very homey, and comfortable. It looks like a basement, it is a basement, but man is this ever comfortable. There's definitely some hygge going on here.

The apartment was nice and spacious. A great place to come back to at the end of a busy day seeing the sights in NYC - peace and solitude. lt offered a unique and cozy layout. Loved the exposed brick, it really added to the character of the apartment! Easy to get to and from subway. Sam and Emily were quick to respond to any questions we had. Wouldn't hesitate to come back. Thanks!

Sam & Emily's place was great. They were accommodating, and very easy to communicate with. The apartment is in a great Brooklyn neighbourhood, with great places to eat & drink within walking distance. Parkside Pizza was delicious, and so was brunch at Blessings Cafe. I suggest you get the 'Montrealer' breakfast sandwich at Blessings! If you're staying in the warmer months, I highly suggest you pack a picnic and take stroll to Prospect Park.

We loved our stay at Sam and Emily's apartment! It is a super cosy basement apartment with a lot of light and all of the amenities we needed (iron, hairdryer, hot water maker for tea). Sam and Emily were very helpful hosts. Though we didn't need to contact them much throughout our stay, they made themselves very available through text, in case we needed anything. Sam and Emily have also made a comprehensive binder full of eating and sightseeing suggestions. That was a great help, we ate at a lot of the places they recommended and they were all so good! The apartment stayed nice and warm for a cold February weekend, and the bed is really comfortable. It was also really nice to have a subway stop only a 2 minute walk away! Overall an amazing stay!

Emily and Sam made us feel absolutely secure and welcome. What a cool place to stay. There is a real eclectic feel to their apartment-it's both cozy and spacious. They provided us with more than enough ideas for restaurants, entertainment and places to explore. Sadly, we are at the airport on our way out of their lovely Brooklyn neighbourhood, but whenever possible, we will be back for more! Definitely would recommend their place to anyone travelling to NYC and who want a cool place to hang out in Brooklyn.

We both grew up in Paris, France. One of us is an academic, the other a journalist. We love Brooklyn, reading, walks in beautiful nearby Prospect Park, music (especially live — check out the Owl Parlor near us! and Blessings on weekends), and great food. We also love sharing the great addresses in our neighborhood with our guests! If you have any questions, we are here for you. Our style is tranquil, quiet, and courteous.
