We own a two-bedroom apartment on the second floor of a typical Park Slope/Gowanus townhouse. The floor-through open design allows airflow in the summer and is sunny and bright year-round. Central AC, dishwasher, and laundry, as well as two large and luxurious bathrooms, make this a comfortable apartment for a family, friends, or two couples. One bedroom has a queen bed, attached bath with shower, and a balcony. The other has a child's crib and two twin beds. There is a sofa in the living room that becomes a queen-sized bed that is really comfortable (really!). It's not shown in the photos here; if you're interested, it's an orange Nomade Express from Ligne Roset. The gray sofa shown in these photos is no longer in the home. On that note, please note that the photos were taken in early 2011 (I think). The apartment looks very similar, but not exactly the same.
The apartment also features WiFi (works well on Macs and *may* work on PCs, depending on your setup) and a breakfast nook and two office areas. There are many restaurants, bars, and coffee shops nearby. 150+ restaurants deliver to our location, so if you don't feel like going out, you can have anything from Colombian to Thai to pancakes without leaving the house. The R, F, and G trains are three blocks south or four blocks north. It's a short (15-20 minute) ride to Soho or Union Square in Manhattan. We have excellent acupuncture and tui na massage places right around the corner, so definitely ask if you feel like fitting in some relaxation!
The fireplace cannot be used by guests, but it looks nice.
Because of New York City law, this apartment is only available for rental periods of one month or longer.
This is a rental for quiet, responsible people only. No smoking inside or outside. If you smoke at all, please do not make a reservation. Fireplace cannot be used by guests for safety reasons. WiFi is generally available with a password we will provide, but host cannot be held responsible for interruptions to or unavailability of service, and we cannot guarantee that WiFi will work on your equipment. Please, no pets.
