Incredible Clinton Hill Home
We LOVED our stay at this beautiful Clinton Hill home. Deborah was the perfect host -- attentive and easy to communicate with. Place was exactly as pictured -- comfortable, great location, all the amenities, and perfect for our family trip to NYC. The kids thought it was the coolest home they had ever seen. We highly recommend Deborah and her place for anyone interested in having all the luxuries while staying in Brooklyn. Thank you Deborah! We hope to return someday.
Great for family or friends gatherings
We found this home to be perfect for 7 adults and one child. The layout on 3 floors with bathrooms worked very well. Enough room to spread out when taking a break from each other. We found the kitchen very adequately stocked with dishes,etc. there were amenities such as toilet paper and such in abundance. We didn’t need to go shopping for basics. And the extra bonus was the backyard and the deck. That I
This is also the owner’s home didn’t bother us at all. Be aware though that the 2 bedrooms on the second floor have closets but not dressers. We were ok with that for our 5 day stay
Needs major upgrades to have good renting standards.
Although the home is spacious and in a great neighborhood it needs some major upgrades and changes in order to meet even a standard level for a decent rental. The personal effects of the owners all over the place was awkward and not something I’m used to as a frequent renter. They even left their items in the refrigerator which I find strange. Why not have a refrigerator in your garage or somewhere so you can move your items there during rentals? Also we had trouble locating towels which is usually standard in a rental home. The towels we did locate were tattered and in bad condition. We even asked the supposed property manager (who I suspect is the owner) if she could buy some towels from target because we couldn’t find hardly any. The shower caddy in the master bathroom is rusted and dirty to the point you can’t put your soap on it. And the shower curtains in the other bathrooms were dingy and needed replacing. The other items in the master bathroom looked dusty and old like they hadn’t been cleaned in a long time. None of the TVs in the bedrooms worked and they are outdated. The television in the living room didn’t work either and a lady showed up and worked on it for over an hour to get it working again. There was a man who looked homeless, repeatedly seen lurking in the backyard. After while we assumed he lived there in some capacity but he never formally introduced himself and we were never told he would be there. The closets and drawers were closed/locked up or had blue tape so we had no where to put our clothing in the bedrooms. Most homes allow you places to hang and put your clothing away. Also, the bedskirts on several of the beds were filthy, leaving us to question whether the rest of the bedding was freshly laundered. The stairs in the home are dangerous also. They’re slippery with no grip strips. One of my friends fell down the stairs and hurt herself while we were there. Honestly cosmetically the home needs a desperate makeover. They’re charging a lot of money to rent this home so the least the owners could do is invest in nice bedding, towels, dishes, paint the walls and make the place look decent and sanitary. The exposed TV wires, dirty bedskirts, dingy curtains throughout the house, unsafe stairs, no instruction manual, excessive off-limit areas, worn out linens and towels were disappointing. And the owners should consider having less of their personal effects around the house so renters can feel at home.
Great space for large family or get together
The great: Amazing 1st floor for large groups to hang out together. Large living room, large dining table, open kitchen with seating at countertop. Nice area with lots of nearby restaurants and stores. A/C worked well, which was key in August! Very large master bedroom and bathroom.
The okay: Note that there are steep stairs and an open stairwell going from the 2nd to 3rd floor (two bedrooms and one bathroom on 3rd floor). It was fine for the younger adults and older kids, but probably not great for older adults and very young kids.
The bad: We had hoped to use the pool and had no advanced notice that it would not be available, but it was not available to use while we were there. Note that the hot tub is not available for guests (doesn't seem like it it ever available for guests so don't plan to use.) Also, we saw a mouse in the living room while we were there!! Sounds like previous guests spotted it as well.
Lovely home with plenty of room for everyone. Loved the open layout on the main floor.
The pool was an added bonus. It was a good location for us. Plenty of restaurants near by.
The only issue if I had to bring up one was the furniture is a little tired especially in the family room.
We enjoyed our stay and would book again.
Thank you for taking the time to post this review, and we appreciate your feedback! We love a mix of antique Brooklyn with a touch of modern, but will continually work to keep all clean and refreshed. We hope to host you on your next stay!
Awesome Brookyln visit!
The rental was perfect for the 8 of us who came into town for my Uncle's memorial. We rented for 3 nights and having 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a complete kitchen was wonderful. We enjoyed the porch and back yard as well as the living room and even watched the NBA game 7 of the east finals last night. We walked to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and took our grandson to the Brooklyn Zoo as well. The house is in a magnificent neighborhood with beautiful trees and housing and lots of great restaurants. It was a 25 minute ride to the memorial at my cousin's place in Manhattan, West Village. I only wish we had more time to spend at this location!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to post this wonderful review. We hope that you will consider us for your next stay in Brooklyn!
