Description of our house
We offer a spacious, sunny, penthouse apartment in a brand new condo right in the heart of Brooklyn. The penthouse apartment, which is 1500 square feet, is built and furnished with a European flair. It is a typical urban flat with a master bedroom, a sitting/TV room with a sofabed that sleeps two adults or one child, and a study, and 2 full bathrooms, each with a bathtub/shower. The cozy kitchen has a dining area and opens up to the living room with a fireplace. Our living room and master bedroom have large balconies. The condo building, which is 6 stories high, has an elevator and a large rooftop terrace open only to the residents of the four penthouse apartments.

= marks the location of this home
Ideally situated near stores, restaurants, and a subway stop, our apartment is less than one hour away from the New York City's finest tourist attractions--museums, theaters, bookstores, fashionable shopping, bars, nightclubs, and the like. In addition to being close to Manhattan, Brooklyn provides many opportunities to explore its history, art scene, exotic food stores and restaurants, as well as its world-famous Coney Island boardwalk. Exploring New York City (all 5 boroughs)is easy on foot and by subway, but a car is helpful for visiting areas outside the city, such as picturesque upstate New York hamlets or Atlantic City casinos.
Something about ourselves
We are Marlen and Tamara, a retired professional couple (engineer/doctor). We have a grown daughter, a lawyer, who lives in Texas. We are in good health and enjoy visiting new places. We have been to many places in Europe, and usually stay in a hotel. However, we experienced one home exchange several years ago and found it afforded a better opportunity to become familiar with a city or a region. Now that we are retired and have much more flexibility in where we travel and how long we stay, we decided that experiencing a destination like a native results in a more leisurely and satisfying visit. We enjoy good food, wine, walks on a beach, museums, and art.
