About Carole Musaracchia & Beverly Balbirsingh
Hi! We are Beverly and Carole, who are the owners at 823. We live on the first and second floors of our home. We welcome you to a comfortable stay in our studio apartment
Carole Musaracchia & Beverly Balbirsingh purchased this Studio in 2005
Why Carole Musaracchia & Beverly Balbirsingh chose Bedford-Stuyvesant
Our home is situated in an up and coming section of Bed Sty. It is a 10 minute car drive to both the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. We enjoy the conveniences to activities in and around Brooklyn and Manhattan. We like the vibe of the neighborhood and the diverse population.
What makes this Studio unique
We fell in love with this house because of the backyard space. We created a private space in our back yard to enjoy when we need to unwind. It makes us feel like we are in the country in the city. We like to entertain and having friends and family over to enjoy the space with us.

Wonderful homemade for seeing NYC!
This place was perfect! It was VERY clean and lovely. We came to nyc with our 16 year old son and this apartment was the perfect spot to have as Home base to see all the sites. The bus picks you up right outside and takes you to the subway. There is a small grocery on the next block. We loved this place!
Clean, neat, and beautiful.
Such a lovely place! Enjoyed the location and very clean. Would definitely consider staying again.
My family and I recently stayed at this rental. It was just perfect. Clean, well stocked and safe. The regular bed and futon bed are very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need. Their wi-if is awesome. Never buffed or dropped. A short walk to the subway station that will take you anywhere in NYC. A bus stop is just a few feet from the unit as well. The neighborhood has a great grocery store , a bank on the corner , delicious Chinese food on the other corner and a fantastic coffee shop, Brooklyn Blend. Great food, friendly staff and the best chai tea I've ever had. I would definitely rent again from Carole and Beverly. Thank you, ladies for a wonderful time.
Fantastically appointed apartment in Bedford Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn
We visited New York for 6 days from Australia and used this apartment as our home base while exploring Manhattan and Brooklyn. The apartment is on the 3rd floor which might be a problem for people who have difficulty with stairs but was fine for us.
Carole made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. Everything you need to make your life comfortable is included in the apartment.
The place is close to public transport- get yourself a metro card ASAP. The B38 leaves every 5 to 8 minutes outside the front door. It will take about 45 mins into Manhattan transferring to the subway at the end of the line.
There is a grocery shop and laundromat very close by. We ordered from the Chinese next door and found it fabulous food and value for money. Carole can give advice on lots of good local eateries.
I couldn’t recommend this apartment more as a very affordable base for exploring New York.
HOST WAS AWESOME. Just as advertised. SUPER CLEAN and everything worked. BED WAS SO COMFY.
We arrived super late and Carole was so accomodating. She waited up til we got there to check us in. She was super helpful and easy to reach at all times and gave us great recommendations. This was a great stay and very affordable. The bed was comfortable and if we were there longer the kitchen had everything we would have needed. We definately will be back. I highly recommend this VRBO rental.
We really enjoyed staying at this property during our quick trip to NYC. The studio was VERY clean and comfortable. The hosts were very welcoming and gave us information as we needed to make our visit a great one.
We are located in Brooklyn in historic Bedford Stuyvesant. Our home is right on DeKalb Avenue just steps away from the B38 bus to Downtown Brooklyn. It's a ten minute bus ride to a strip of fantastic restaurants, Fort Greene Park, the Barclay Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets and the venue for concerts and BAM. Take a stroll through Pratt Institute's Sculpture Garden which is only 7 minutes away by bus. Have a slice of Juniors famous cheesecake only 15 minutes away by bus, before you connect to the B,Q, N or R train to New York City right on the corner of Juniors. Stroll through the mall near Barclay Center where you will find stores such as Target, Marshalls, Uniqlo and DSW. Or explore the newly reorganized and rapidly changing Fulton Mall near Juniors in which you will find Macys, Aeropostale, Aldo, American Apparel, Armani Exchange, Banana Republic,Brooklyn Industries to name a few. We are very close to the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Park where you will find the most spectacular views of NYC between 2 bridges. Brooklyn Bridge Park offers free outdoor movies in the summer with the NYC skyline as a backdrop, Beach Volleyball courts, Kayaking, Ping Pong, Bocce, Basketball,Rollerskating Rink and the famous Janes Carousel where, for 2 dollars, young or old, you will enjoy this. There are fun parks within the park for children and a scenic bike path. Food festivals are a regular attraction at this park. Citibikes are available a few blocks from us, where you can rent a bike and use the bike lanes made available, we will supply maps. Prospect Park is also nearby Grand Army Plaza and the Brooklyn Public Library and the Brooklyn Museum and the Zoo. A large green market takes place during the summer at the edge of Prospect Park and also every Saturday at Fort Greene Park. Many farmers from upstate New York attend these markets as well as every Wednesday near Union Square Manhattan, a short ride on the Q train. There are a number of public parks and a public pool (Kosciuszko Pool) which is 3 blocks from our house. There is so much to do in Brooklyn, so many restaurants and bars near our home and in the nearby Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. We are centrally located and a very easy commute to all attractions. You will have a great time and we will help you navigate your way around town. We are gay friendly and straight friendly. Families with children welcome!
