About Kylie M

We are an Australian family who have had 10 years of adventures in NYC. We have lived in Manhattan and Brooklyn and have loads of advice for anyone arriving as a tourist or expat. Having rented many vacation/holiday homes and apartments over the years, we know what makes your stay special and more enjoyable.

Kylie M purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Kylie M chose Gowanus

Our apartment is sparkling clean with freshly made beds and fluffy towels. It features high end finishes and is nicely furnished. Having become tired of vacation rentals being a little tired or not clean, we always ensure the apartment is sparkling clean and we have outfitted it with quality furniture, kitchen equipment and luxury linens.

Our townhouse borders the historical Carroll Gardens area and the newly gentrifying Gowanus area. Stroll around Carroll Gardens and enjoy the beautiful architecture and leafy streets. Every week a new cafe, restaurant or attraction pops up in the Gowanus area. In summer, enjoy the outdoor BBQ bar Pig Beach, wander over to The Palms for a game of shuffleboard or cycle up to Prospect Park. In winter, ice skate and toboggan in Prospect Park. If you have children, there is plenty of outdoor space for them in our garden. Also, on our block is a lovely school playground open to the public on weekends. Nearby on Smith St, is the lovely Carroll Gardens park and playground with a farmers market on Sundays. The new Whole Foods is a 10 min walk away. But best of all, the subway is only 2 small blocks away and is a quick ride into Manhattan.

**Please note that since this apartment has been built and furnished we have had 2 guests who have extended their stays beyond 6 months. It is for this reason we currently only have 2 reviews. Competitive market rent available for monthly renters. Please enquire.

What makes this apartment unique

Enjoy Brooklyn like the locals but be only a short subway ride from all the sights and sounds of Manhattan. This property is modern, comfortable, clean and full of character. The friendly owners will provide recommendations for the local area to ensure you make the most out of your Brooklyn stay.

When in NYC - Staying in Brooklyn is the Way to Go

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (older kids aged 17, and 22) had a wonderful stay in this two bedroom apartment in Brooklyn. It was very convenient- we were a short walk from Whole Foods and the subway into Manhattan. We are so glad we chose to commute into the city every day rather than stay in a Manhattan hotel- first for the space, secondly for the price. After a day full of battling massive tourist crowds, the quieter Gowanus/Carroll Gardens area was appreciated. It was so great to explore the neighborhood and live like a local- there are many locally-owned shops and restaurants nearby. Kylie was so sweet and welcoming- we felt like we were staying with a friend. HIGHLY Recommended.

Lovely, Convenient and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a delightful stay with two young granddaughters - easy access to subways, cosy and comfortable with well equipped kitchen. Kylie could not have been easier to work with - we got immediate answers to our few questions. The girls loved the trampoline and we appreciated all the environmentally friendly shampoos, body lotions, and kitchen supplies. Definitely hope to return before long.

Great Accomodations and Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased... Every detail had been thought of from the travelers perspective. The apartment was truly immaculate, comfortable, and lacking nothing. The outdoor area was perfect for relaxing while watching our kids play on the trampoline. The owner was eager to please, warm and welcoming. We were especially surprised to find snacks and a bottle of wine upon arrival :-)

clean, welcoming, well-equipped and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kylie's lovely apartment for a few nights while visiting family nearby, and couldn't have chosen a better place. Everything you need is provided, from coffee to good towels to paper goods to shampoo, and of good quality. The beds were very comfortable, and unlike many apartments, there is ample closet space. Also, the bedrooms are in the back, away from the street, so they are quiet. Kylie was a wonderful host -- very responsive and accommodating. For those not familiar with Brooklyn, Kylie provides many maps, guides and personal recommendations. Would happily stay here again.

Clean, bright, comfortable, and very well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

Kylie's place was perfect for our stay in Brooklyn. We were in town for a wedding which was less than a block away so the location was perfect for me and my 10 yr old. It's close to both the Carroll Street and the Union Street stations (a few blocks each). Lots of cafes and restaurants are nearby as well.

The hosts are very friendly and helpful and have supplied the apartment with just about anything and everything you would need: snacks and a bottle of wine on arrival, coffee, a nespresso machine ❤, shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion..

The garden is lovely and though it was a bit too chilly for me to enjoy, my daughter loved the trampampoline and spent nearly all of our apartment time outside.

Thanks so much for a wonderdul stay! Will definitley try to book again when we return!

Warm and inviting!

  • 5 of 5

Warm and inviting describes both the apartment and Kylie, our host. The apartment was perfect. Everything was so fresh and new. We are not accustomed to winter, so the heated wood floors were a real treat. The apartment had all the amenities you could want. We hosted various family members for dinner in the apartment during our stay and had everything we needed to prepare dinner. Kylie was great. Interactions with her were a pleasure. She was readily available for anything we needed. We didn't need much because she had left such detailed information in the apartment (and in the app) ranging from how to use the WIFI to great suggestions for dining and shopping. If we should find ourselves in Brooklyn again, Kylie's apartment will be our first choice!

Thanks Kylie.
