Perks for the Parents

Relax in this cozy riverside Dumbo apartment in NYC, which comes with toys and books for kids as well as chic décor for grown-ups. It sleeps 6 + 1. Fully equipped for a family stay, this stylish Brooklyn home offers the most comfortable beds for a good night’s sleep, plus cozy couches in the snug for chill-out time after busy days of sightseeing. Despite the quiet and serene residential setting, this central location means it’s easy to get around and explore the city, with both the world-renowned tourist sights and little-known local finds nearby: the hosts can recommend the best pizza, shake shack and coffee/food delicatessen Brooklyn has to offer, just a few minutes’ walk away.

Why Kids Love it

The apartment is perfect for toddlers and children under the age of 10. The hosts have lots of toys and books available for kids to borrow during their stay and can supply a crib, high chair, baby toys or a baby bath on request. There are 3 parks within a 10-minute walk and the nearby Jane’s Carousel (15 minutes’ walk) is a well-known spot for families, with a 100-year old carousel as well as a riverside park. It’s also just half an hour by subway to Central Park for the world-famous Central Park Zoo, or 25 minutes south to Brooklyn’s Prospect Park and Children’s Museum.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 30 days. There will be a weekly $100 cleaning charge added to all bookings over 30 days. Safety notes: there is 1 flight of stairs to the downstairs bedroom. The apartment is located in a quiet corner of vinegar hill so you can sleep with windows open and there’s little city noise. Street parking is readily available at the end of a nearby quiet street in Vinegar Hill. Car rental is not essential as the public transport is convenient and efficient. The house comes with a private washer/dryer, dishwasher, air conditioning, TV and WiFi.

About the Location

Located right next to the East River, this apartment is in the Dumbo neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City. This central location is just a few steps away from cafes, restaurants and the Navy Yard (where you’ll find Wegman’s for food groceries) as well as all kinds of stores and flea markets within easy reach. Make a visit to the nearby St Ann’s Warehouse Theater and Brooklyn Bridge Park, with its playgrounds, carousel and sprawling sports courts. It’s less than 10 minutes’ walk to the subway (York St) which gets you to Manhattan in 10 minutes, while JFK and LaGuardia are both around 45 minutes’ drive.

Accommodation Details

This apartment has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, set over 2 floors. On the main level there is an eat-in kitchen with an open plan layout, as well as a separate snug/living room (with a twin sofa bed for additional guests). The primary bedroom has 1 queensize bed, while the second bedroom is on the lower basement level, with 3 single beds. The hosts also have 1 travel crib available on request. Outside there’s a side yard with a wrap around tree bench and an outdoor bistro table with seats.

Style Notes

Modern monochrome. The apartment is light and airy, with high ceilings and lots of natural sunlight. The hosts have furnished the rooms with quality furniture in a modern style, using monochrome colors with bright accents and accessories. Parents will love the Miele stove top and Kitchen Aid appliances which complement the industrial-style interiors that reference Brooklyn’s industrial past in Dumbo. We love the contemporary artwork, the floral wall hangings in the bathroom and the beautiful original windows.

We love to cook, read, travel and play together as a family. We have the most fun when we are hosting and entertaining family and friends in our homes in Brooklyn and the Hamptons. We hope you find as much joy in our Hamptons home as we do. It’s been our happy place....

Dumbo, Brooklyn

Carousel rides and skyscraper views

Shorthand for ‘Down Under the Manhattan Bridge’, Dumbo is family-friendly, connected to Manhattan by subway and ferry, with a thriving arts scene, boutiques and hipster cafés. Gaze at those iconic skyscrapers across the river, ride Jane’s carousel or play in Brooklyn Bridge Park - especially fun in summer with a water lab drenched with water spouts, and free movie nights.

Our family of four (two children, two adults) had a wonderful stay at the Plymouth St Residence. Bonita was the best host! She was so caring and attentive, even providing toys and books for our children. The basement setup is perfect for kids - comfortable for sleeping and great for play time. The flat is very quiet too which was appreciated, especially for NYC/Brooklyn. Great overall experience, highly recommended!

The Plymouth Street No 1 was a wonderful spot for my family of 3. Tucked away on a very quiet neighborhood in Vinegar Hill, we were able to take advantage of the shops and restaurants in Dumbo, or hop a car or 1 stop on the train into Manhattan. There’s a very conveniently located supermarket, too. Our host Bonita was incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. We look forward to staying there again in the future!
