Perks for the Parents

A stylish, light-filled apartment in historic Brooklyn Heights offering a quiet and serene residential setting within a central location. It sleeps 4. This is a fantastic base for families with kids aged 5 and older visiting New York City: the location is easy to get around and you can explore the city via nearby subway lines into Manhattan. Brooklyn Promenade is just down the street and little-known local finds are close by. (Ask the host to recommend the best pizza, tacos, coffee and food delicatessen Brooklyn has to offer, just a few minutes’ walk away.) Parents will love the balcony and the shared roof terrace, which has dining tables and lounge chairs, as well as 360 degree views of Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Why Kids Love it

The apartment is a great space for a family with kids aged 5 years or older. Brooklyn Heights is considered one of the best neighborhoods in the city for families - it’s a very walkable and safe neighborhood with family-friendly cafes and stores within easy reach, as well as the river and the waterfront parks nearby. Older children will enjoy easy access to the waterfront Brooklyn Bridge Park which features a multitude of smaller play parks for children of all ages, as well as a water park and recreation sports (basketball, volleyball, soccer fields and more) in addition to water sports (kayaking and sailing) and a roller rink.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 nights. The apartment is safe and secure on the 6th floor set within a landmark Brooklyn Heights building offering a part-time door concierge, a roof deck with views, an elevator, gym and a balcony,. There is a washer and dryer in the residence, as well as a dishwasher, TV and WiFi. The apartment itself is not baby proofed. There is a paid parking garage in the next block to the building, but car hire is not necessary.

About the Location

The apartment is located in the beautiful and charming Brooklyn Heights neighborhood of New York City. Composed of tree-lined and cobblestone streets, restaurants and shops, and a famous promenade with stunning views of Manhattan Skyline, Brooklyn Heights is one of the most sought-after family neighborhoods in New York City. Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge into the city, stroll to the Brooklyn Bridge Park, jump on the subway into Manhattan, or eat at one of the many neighborhood restaurants and cafes close by. The Court St subway station is down the block and it's 5 minutes’ walk to Borough Hall and Jay St subway stations. Both JFK and LaGuardia airports are around 1 hour away by train or car.

Accommodation Details

This apartment has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, on the 6th floor. There’s a large open plan living/dining room with a dining table seating 6. This beautiful room offers west and south exposures, with stunning views of the Manhattan skyline and Brooklyn, and opens onto a balcony where you can sit and enjoy the city skyline views. Light fills the apartment throughout the day and offers beautiful sunsets against the urban landscape. The open-plan kitchen features state-of-the-art appliances by Viking and Bosch, a wine refrigerator and a large island with stools. The primary bedroom suite has a queensize bed and ensuite bathroom; the second bedroom offers a sofa bed which opens into a comfortable double bed for children or friends, as well as a desk. There are 2 bathrooms: 1 with a full bathtub and the other with a shower.

Style Notes

Stylish yet simple. The apartment is light and airy, with high ceilings and lots of natural sunlight. Wooden floors and white walls create a modern and simple frame to quality furniture and design accents. The fireplace in the main living area provides a warm and charming touch, balanced by the sleek kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances. We love the warm wooden kitchen cabinetry, the colorful modern art on the walls and the antique touches in the second bedroom.

Visited in December 2022
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Magali's Montague Residence in Brooklyn Heights. The neighborhood is incredibly convenient, with shops and amenities steps from the building. The building felt safe, the doorman was friendly, and the elevator was appreciated with our luggages. We especially appreciated Magali being so accommodating of my traveling with my service dog, Eugene, and she was so kind as to even set out water bowls and a dog bed for him. She was incredibly responsive from first message through our checking out, and we look forward to a future stay at this beautiful and well-appointed apartment!

Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn

America's first suburb

Historical Brownstone Brooklyn starts here, where Brooklyn Bridge connects to Manhattan. It's a quiet, peaceful area - you might even wake up to birdsong - and is populated by families. Explore parks, kids shops and family-friendly eateries, then cycle or walk across the bridge to the big city. Don't miss the views from Brooklyn promenade over the water to the skyscrapers.
