From the moment Fraulein and John welcomed us into their home, to the time we left 11 days later, was a most enjoyable experience. Visiting from Australia, we were unsure just what we would find, but that all changed the minute we set our luggage down in the apartment. It is spacious with everything you need to be self contained. Being at ground floor level and a private garden area to have a relaxing "quiet" one was an added bonus.
The area is safe with only a 5 minute walk to the subway and another 2 minutes to the wonderful Prospect Park, park. We had no trouble getting to anywhere from New York to Coney Island in around 30 minutes, helped by the amount of information pamphlets Fraulein keeps up to date in the apartment.
Plenty of restaurants/bars/laundry's/grocery shops close by.
For those looking for a quiet base to launch into all the excitement of New York/Brooklyn offers, we highly recommend Fraulein and John's apartment.
We have stayed at in the Lefferts Garden Suite at least three times. Our daughter lives in Brooklyn and we always plan our visits by making sure that we can stay in the suite. Fraulein is very accommodating and the suite has everything that you need. We could prepare meals if we wanted to eat in, although there are plenty of restaurants nearby. On arrival the fridge has eggs, butter, jam, milk and juice and there is always a fresh loaf of bread waiting on the counter. After a long flight and getting into NY late it is wonderful to be able to get up in the morning to make our breakfast that first day or so. There are plenty of places just around the corner from the suite to buy fruit and vegetables and there is also a nearby supermarket. The bathroom was stocked with everything, even those things you didn't know you needed. The bed is comfortable and there is excellent closet space to hang your clothes. The garden outside the bedroom is a lovely space. Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Botanical Garden are a short walk away and Prospect Park subway station is also near so getting into Manhattan is very easy on the express B & Q trains. If Brooklyn is where you want to be based then Lefferts Garden Suite is a perfect place to stay.
this garden flat had everything we wanted. It was comfortable, convenient for subway, shops and places to eat. The shower was efficient, the bed comfortable, the landlady so friendly and helpful. Being in Brooklyn felt like living in real New York and not just a tourist experience.
A very friendly & comfortable place to stay - excellent location, lovely street, great restaurants, close to transport to explore Brooklyn with easy access to Manhattan, Coney Island etc. . Would love to go back & would recommend this to anyone going to NY. Brooklyn is great.
Many thanks to Fraulein for helping to make our week's stay in Brooklyn so stress free and easy! Everything you need (and more) is on hand in this great apartment and we felt really safe, secure and welcome at all times! Fraulein was kind enough to stock the fridge for our arrival, which was greatly appreciated, and having fans, air con and the pretty garden was a Godsend in such a hot week! The apartment is a short walk from the subway, and also nearby are the Botanical Gardens and Prospect Park, which was lovely to visit with its huge paddling pool! Manhattan is just a short subway ride away and everything is in easy reach. We particularly loved our 'local' Midwood Flats bar on the main road - great beers, food, music and owners! Thank you also to Fraulein for letting us stay late on our final day so that we could take it at our leisure before our evening flight back to the UK - so very helpful. We would most definitely recommend the property and very much hope we have the opportunity to return! All the very best, Theresa and Brian! x
PS I have to add that I am a VERY POOR sleeper, however, here I slept like a log EVERY NIGHT! The bed is firm, but perfect and I wish it were my bed at home!
