Overview

About the property

sleeps 5, one bathroom ,one bedroom

On the third floor of a hundred years old brownstone, la Maison des Sirenes is perfect for anybody appreciating style and comfort. Affordable but not 'cheap', La Maison des Sirenes is well dressed!!! The apartment was decorated with taste and I meticulously picked every single of furnitures myself. This is the first apartment I ever rented as a vacation rental(August 2007).

It is located on one of the most coveted block of Bedstuy(tree lined). It features a master bedroom,an antique bathroom, fully equipped Tuscan style kitchen,dining room,living room and an amazing bamboo lined deck with table,umbrella and wrought iron daybed. Perfect for barbecue in summer,sun bathing brunches on weekends or simply relaxing.

Most importantly the apartment is a few statins away from Manhattan.

Bedstuy used to be known for its motto 'do or die' . Not anymore!!!! Now it is best known for its incredibly beautiful Brownstone. It was fearures recentlt in the Time Out magazine as ' one of the best neighbourhood ' of NYC.The strong community and abundant beautiful brownstone townhouses contribute to its growth and charm. New cafes,restaurants,bakeries ,boutique ,galleries nd wine bars are sprouting everywhere receiving much attention by Zagat, time out,NY magazines and blogs. A diverse mix of students,hipsters,artists,crative professionals,architects and attorneys of all races continue to move to the neighbourhood.

The area is serviced well by the A abd C train with commute times 15 mn to lowervManhattan and 30 mn to midtown.(times square).

Bedstuy was home to famous artists such as Notorious BIG,Lil Kim,Mos Def,Chris rock,,poet June Jordan and activist Hattie Carthan. Bedstuy streets are often represented in media : Spike lee movies, MIA music video.....

There is a strong sense of pride being part of Bedstuy and being its pioneers.

Why Nathalie chose Bedford-Stuyvesant

I simply fell in love with all the stain glasses and beautiful intricate wood frames.

Guestbook comments from the owner

avons passe de bons et chaleureux moments dans cet apartement coquet a l'image de nathalie,notre charmante hote. Les petits dejeuners sur la terrasse ensoleillee avec le chant des oiseaus en prime,un privilege au coeur de la grosse pomme. Nous avons adore le quartier de Bedford/stuyvesant car les gens sont souriants et aimables. le gospel le dimanche au coin de marcus garvey est un moment inoubliable. Tres rapidement sur Manhattan avec le metro express,nous preferons sejourner dans les quartiers des blocks partys, des brooklyn boogies du "do the right thing"....un quartier authentique.,

Charming apartment with stunning terrace in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

Nathalie was an excellent host, she made our stay very easy.

The apartment is perfect for 2 couples or a family. Located in the heart of Brooklyn there're lots of things to do around and it's very well linked to Manhattan and other neibourghoods.

Great Spot to Stay

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the place. Lots of character and plenty of sleeping options. Mostly what we were expecting. Stayed here with a few friends. Must note that it isn't technically a 1 bedroom place. There is a queen bed that is separate from the others but there are no walls or doors to make it a bedroom. One other thing that some of us were slightly disappointed in was the shower.... you can't actually stand up in the shower as you usually would. It is a hand held sprayer in a claw foot tub. I am 5'6" and I had to kneel down in the shower to wash hair.

The price was great and the location is very convenient for exploring New York City.

A great Brooklyn experience.

  • 5 of 5

Less than five-minute walk to the subway, you can access all the city, however the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood has a great vibe. The second story apartment had many of the original details of the brownstone and a great view of the neighborhood street. Requested car service to the airport was easily taken care of with a simply text to the owner. Great experience.

Experience New York like a real New Yorker

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 visited La Maison des Sirenes for a quick weekend trip after Cooperstown Baseball tournament. Our first full day the block was having a old school block party with cool music, food, and bounce house. All the neighbors were out having fun. We talked with a few neighbors but chose to pass on the block party and go site seeing. The Subway was only a few blocks away so we used it for our main form of transportation. The neighborhood was very safe during the day and at night. My Infiniti QX60 sat around the corner for 3 days never got one scratch. The place was very eclectic as you can see in pictures. My only complaint is no fault of our host, but the humidity was very high that weekend (90-95F) therefore the nights were a little warm even though the AC unit was working like it should. Overall I highly recommend Nathalie place so book it and experience New York like a New Yorker.

PS If you like Caribbean food like Jerk chicken, Curry Goat or Ox-tail go visit Angela's just up the street. 😋?😋?😋?
