Modern living. With skyline views interspersed with greenery, this is a classic Brooklyn apartment, bringing together the best of the city and family-friendly neighborhood.

We had a wonderful time at the 3rd Street Residence. The house was clean, tidy and conveniently located just minutes from the subway. The neighborhood felt safe. To boon, the house is located a short walk from family restaurants, playgrounds and all things to do with kids. We sometimes went into Manhattan (a short 20 minute subway ride) to discover the city. Helena was very responsive when we did have questions for her. We would gladly stay in this flat again.

My family and I adored Helena's place. Very clean and welcoming. We felt at home. Helena's home had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, including air-conditioning!! Communicating with Helena was very easy. Thank you for this enjoyable visit to Brooklyn!

We had a fantastic stay at Helena's Brooklyn apartment. Having a king size bed was a nice bonus and the unit was clean and incredibly convenient. We loved the location. The kitchen is well appointed and has everything you need. Be sure you're ok walking up stairs as this is on the 4th level. Communication with host was easy and she is very responsive. We had a great time!

We loved our stay at the 3rd Street Residence. Our small family of 3 fell in love with this part of Brooklyn. It's very family friendly and the apartment is really well positioned near the subway at Carroll Street. Staying here was a much better choice than a hotel. We had room to spread out with our little one. There were plenty of kids toys and books to keep him entertained when we were at home, too. Helena was also lovely to deal with, always just a phone call or text away if we needed anything. We would definitely stay again!

Loved the area and all the wonderful toys and books to play with (especially the play kitchen!). We weren't thrilled that the TV remote was broken and the TV at large (i.e. netflix and apple TV) were difficult, at best, to use. We loved the housekeeper Valerie who was warm and friendly when letting us into the home.

We had a wonderful stay at Helena’s. The apartment is in a super cool neighbourhood with many cafes and restaurants and a short metro ride to Manhattan. The kids loved the toys! I loved running to to Dumbo and back. Overall we had a wonderful stay. Highly recommended!

We really enjoyed our stay in Carroll Gardens. The apartment is very modern and clean. The location is great- with the F/G train, Whole Foods, Carroll Park, and many restaurants within walking distance. We had a question on arrival and Helena was very quick to respond. It was great dealing with her through the whole process. We would definitely stay here again!

Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn

Brownstones, delis and gorgeous gardens

This vibrant, desirable Brooklyn neighborhood is filled with a mix of families and artists with a Euro-American community. Known for its brownstones, tree-lined streets and houses with large and lovely front and back gardens, it’s under half an hour from Manhattan by subway. Local parks are fun for kids - Prospect Park is a short car ride away, while Brooklyn Heights Promenade and waterfront walks are a short walk away, for skyscraper views and ferry trips.
