Home Description

Spacious and comfortable apartment in Brooklyn with easy transfer to Manhattan

This comfortable 3-bedroom second-floor apartment (ca. 1000 sq.ft) with 2 full bath rooms is located in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, NY. Hardwood floor and original detail in this 100-yr-old limestone house provide for a comfortable 'home away from home’ for up to six people (average occupancy is family of five).

Very convenient commute to Manhattan (5-10 min walk to subway, N, D express-trains 15 min's to Union Square, 25 min's to Times Square). Located in the middle of a down-to-earth, urban, friendly and family-oriented neighborhood with convenience stores, laundromat, a pizza place, a diner and a park with a spectacular view of Manhattan, all within a 2 min. walk. Numerous Mexican, Chinese (and other Asian) restaurants nearby. We - Stefan and Wagaye Bauer plus two children - live on the first floor, and we're happy to help with whatever you may need.

Sunset Park is the southern extension of Park Slope, one of Brooklyn’s most attractive areas with restaurants, cafés and shopping. Our street is in the middle of an urban, down-to-earth and family-oriented neighborhood. The apartment is a one-block walk away from the actual park that gave the area its name, a park with public basket ball courts, chess board tables, a large playground, a summer outdoor sprinkler and - a particular bonus in tropical Brooklyn - one of this borough’s best public outdoor pools (open July/Aug, no admission). Brooklyn communal life in a safe environment with a spectacular view of Manhattan and the ‘Upper Bay’ with the Statue of Liberty and ferries to Staten Island. Sunsets a specialty.

Great "classic New York" apartment

This place was great! Our hosts were very accommodating, friendly, and helpful. If you don't mind a short jaunt into the city, this is a great place to save some money. Beds were comfortable and there was everything you would need. We had a great stay!

We LOVE New York!

We are so happy we chose to book this apartment for our excellent five night stay in New York City. The apartment is as shown in the pictures. It is spacious, comfortable, clean and affordable. It was home to us (two adults and two teenagers) in New York, and we started to think we lived in Sunset Park! We loved our adventures in Manhattan, but when we came up out of the subway each night we all sighed and said how great it was to be home in Brooklyn. This is a real neighbourhood with real people working hard and raising their kids, visiting with neighbours on the streets and greeting passers by with a friendly hello. Stefan and Wagaye are friendly and helpful, and the apartment is very quiet. We loved having breakfast at the Sunset Park Diner, conveniently located two or three blocks from the apartment, half way to the subway. The view from Sunset Park is fantastic. The apartment is completely equipped with everything you need to cook... which we didn't (too many amazing places to eat in New York City). In fact, we didn't even use the coffee maker, because we enjoyed the one block walk each morning to buy a great $1.00 cup of coffee from the little grocery on the corner! We also liked the fact that the owners are at least 1/3 Canadian! We would return anytime! Thank you Stefan and Wagaye!

Delightful Stay in Brooklyn!

We couldn't have been happier with our three-day stay. The hosts were very welcoming. We had a party of 6 (including a 2-month old grandbaby), and it felt like home to us. Everything was at our fingertips, with plenty of information about restaurants and activities in the area. Rather than being stuck in a room at a hotel, we could make morning coffee & breakfast, and even cook (with a fully-stocked kitchen) if were so inclined. Having two bathrooms was wonderful, and one had a huge shower. The hosts were very accommodating and helpful before we booked, and while we stayed at the home. Whenever we're back in Brooklyn, we'll be back!

Just spent a fabulous weekend with my hubby, our 2 daughters and their significant others in this adorable apartment. Plenty of room for 6 adults and the beds were very comfy. short walk to subway into city gave us lots of exercise. Stephan suggested a Turkish restaurant and a Mexican restaurant on 5th, we tried both and were glad we did. Would come back here in a heart beat!!!
