General overview

Thank you for reading our profile! We are located in Park Slope, one of the trendiest, most child friendly and beautiful neighborhoods of Brooklyn. The subway station is just 4 short blocks away (5 minutes walk). Downtown Manhattan is about 20 minutes by subway. We are one block away from a playground suitable for children cca. 1 - 12 years old (slides, climbing course and water fountain in the summer) and two blocks from Whole Foods supermarket. We are about 15 minutes walk from Prospect Park (just like Central Park - boats, picnic areas, carousel, ice skating/roller blading rink, splash pad .. etc.), Brooklyn Botanical Garden, Brooklyn ZOO, Brooklyn Museum, Barclays Center (concerts) and the Brooklyn Academy of Music (theater, concerts, movies). Our street is quiet, but only one block away from a long row of chic restaurants, boutiques, various shops. The bus down the street drops you off at Brooklyn Bridge Park overlooking Manhattan (cca 15 minutes ride) with access to Governor's Island (bike rentals, concerts, events, playgrounds .. etc. ) and the entire stretch of the park with facilities and amazing views of Manhattan along the river. We are also one subway stop away from Atlantic Yard train station (ride to the beaches of Long Island). You will not need a car if you are staying in NYC. Public transportation is easy and safe at all hours. Summer in Park Slope/Brooklyn/NYC is packed with free programs in the parks and we will be able to provide you with any information you may need.

The space

We live on the top floor of a 5 story elevator building. We have two bedrooms and a living room with open kitchen and a huge terrace (with outdoor furniture) plus another balcony. The apartment has all the modern amenities (TV, wifi, washer/dryer, AC/heating, kitchen appliances .. etc.). The bedroom has a queen size bed; the second room is the children's room with two adult size single beds (trundle). We have one bathroom. The best feature of the apartment is our terrace, which has an amazing view of downtown New York and the World Financial Center and it's our playground as soon as the weather allows. We have a kiddie pool, chalk board for drawing, bubbles, plants and a mini herb garden (that we will ask you to look after :). We love eating out on the terrace under the stars and just sit and talk with a glass of wine during summer nights, you will also :)

Member description
Hi and thank you for reading our profile. We are a family of four: my husband, myself and 10 year old girl/boy twins. We LOVE to travel whenever school holidays allow. Usually, we travel during July/August to Europe and December/ other school holidays in the US. We live in a beautiful part of Brooklyn full of cultural activities, restaurants and places of interest and about a 20 minute ride to downtown Manhattan. We love exchanging homes and made friends doing so in the past and looking forward to more adventures/friends with people like us :) We are currently looking for a simultaneous exchange in San Diego, California from December 2019 - January 1, 2020 (dates are somewhat flexible) and Buenos Aires, Argentina for the month of February.
