Sadly we did not enjoy our stay
We booked this 'private, sunny garden apartment' mainly for the garden and were very disappointed. It is not well maintained and not enjoyable to sit outside in - for example a large shopping trolley filled with plastic was just hanging out in the middle. It doesn't feel 'private' either as the host and her family live upstairs and their windows overlook the garden. Whilst this second point is not a criticism we feel the advert stating privacy miss sells the property.
We left the property midweek because there were mice in the kitchen that left evidence of mice poo and ate our food. We immediately asked the host for a refund for the rest of the week so we could find a hotel without mice and she obliged. She also responded quickly when I emailed her to ask for a replacement hairdryer as the one in the apartment was broken.
The area was good for the price of the apartment. There are entertainment and bars a walk away and it is close to several metro stations to explore the rest of NYC.

I'm charge for 3 if you see something the Firt night you go but you stay 4. But thanks is pleasure have you and you husban Sorry for the inconvenience Thanks
Economical lodging for New York
This was a comfortable place for 3 of us to stay. It is a basement, and a little dank as a result, but Lidia was extremely gracious and welcoming for us to use the back yard space. It is a bit of a rough neighborhood, but the house felt very secure. Subway is an easy walk, but it did take about 30 min to get to midtown Manhattan.
So much space!
We stayed with 4 in Manhattan for a week in a tiny apartment so this was a welcome change for the 2 that stayed a week extra. It has space for 5 people and all the amenities we needed, fridge, stove, microwave, wifi, and tv/cable. The G-line metro is less than 5 minutes away at a slow pace, there's a laundromat 2 minutes away, and a supermarket near the metro entrance.
Unfortunately, we had no chance to use the BBQ but sitting in the sun in the back garden area was very relaxing.
Manhattan is about 25 minutes away if the trains decide to arrive on time. Using the NYC Subway app helped us find our way each time.
Lidia is a friendly host who is very helpful when we needed something extra and had questions on nearby businesses.
It's not a luxury apartment but it beats the cramped space in Manhattan. 5/5 stars, saved for the next time we decide to go to NY!
Great stay for the value
Lidia was a great host and we enjoyed our stay while seeing new york for the first time. Bed was a little short for two adults, but we managed.
Well equipped and cozy
Not too far from Manhattan and well equipped (TV, Internet, stove, utensils, ...). A good place to stay!
We had a great time staying here. This is a cozy little apartment that was conveniently located in Brooklyn. Lydia was extremely helpful and showed us all around. She provided us with a lot of great ideas and tips for navigating through New York. She was quick to respond to each communication we sent, and she kept the place neat and tidy for our arrival. Highly recommended!
We are located in the Stuyvesant Heights/Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn
