About The Owner

We are both designers and love creating warm, inviting spaces for our guests— a home away from home we'd love to stay in if we were traveling ourselves. It's always a pleasure to meet our guests and to give them tips on interesting places to visit.

Map

Car: not necessary

Straddling the neighborhoods of Bushwick, Brooklyn and Ridgewood, Queens, the apartment is 5 blocks away from the Dekalb Street 'L' train station in Brooklyn—one of the best subway lines in the city. Union Square, the heart of downtown Manhattan, is only 15 minutes away via a direct subway ride; Williamsburg, Brooklyn's stylish boutiques, bars and restaurants are only a 7 minute train ride away.

Ours is a quieter, more residential neighborhood, but it is in an exciting stage of growth. In the last 5 years there has been a huge influx of artists and creatives in our immediate area. As a result, there is now a solid (and rapidly growing) number of stylish cafes, restaurants, wine bars, art galleries, yoga studios, and a great 24-hour gourmet/organic grocery store all within a 10-12 minute walk from the apartment. There are also local Italian bakeries, Halal butcher shops, Equadorian bodegas, Polish food markets and the best tasting Mexican tamales we've ever come across. All relevant information can be found in our Guest Welcome binder in the apartment and we hope that you will explore these local gems during your visit.

Pleasant stay in Brooklyn

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Brooklyn apartment overall. The living room and kitchen were very roomy and comfortable, the neighborhood was nice, there was a short walk to the grocery store and transportation. The property manager's communication was excellent and there was great information on transportation, restaurants, etc. The only downside was the smaller bedroom off the kitchen was small, there was no waste basket or mirror, and not a lot of room for our luggage. Otherwise, this was a reasonable cost for a pleasant stay for two couples.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We really appreciated having a washer and dryer. The beds were comfortable. Basically the facility met our needs as we were only there to sleep. Most of our time was spent in NYC. The metro was a 10 to 15 minute walk and we found the community to be going on about there lives as if we were not there. No problems. We normally returned very late and felt safe in lighted streets. Good information provided by the manager which we found to be very helpful.

AMAZING!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The reviews seem to good to be true but EVERYTHING is exactly as described!!!! We even met the owner on the street our first day and he introduced himself and told us to call if we needed anything. Great neighborhood, we(4 ladies) walked home late at night from the subway and felt super safe! Not a lot of restaurants super close so make sure you grab something on your way back to the room!! But overall not a single complaint and would definitely rent this unit again!!!!!!

Historic charm in a quiet, clean and attractive place

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was as represented and photographed, with clean and comfortable beds, very nice bathroom & kitchen, and located conveniently in a quiet neighborhood close to a subway station. The occupancy and check out instructions were clear, and the apartment was very roomy, with tall ceilings and good sized rooms. Great for a trip to New York, and we would definitely recommend to fellow travelers. I hope to stay there again, next time I'm in New York.
