About Darlene

I'm grateful to have the opportunity to list my property for others to experience, as I am a well seasoned traveler myself who appreciates a more authentic travel experience - one that allows me to get to know a place through the eyes of the local residents.

Darlene purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Darlene chose Crown Heights

Originally born and raised in Louisiana, I enjoy the stimulation New York City offers, but need a peaceful home to retreat to at the end of a hectic, often frenetic day. I honestly haven't found a more peaceful, serene escape in all of this vast city.

What makes this apartment unique

Having lived in New Orleans for so many years, to me Brooklyn is the closest thing to the Big Easy that you can get in the Big Apple....

Awesome stay in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

This place is a find, we really enjoyed our stay at Darlene's flat in Brooklyn. The apartment was very well appointed, super cute and comfortable. The bathroom was nice and shampoo was kindly provided. It felt like home. The bed was comfortable too. The kitchen is just right and by picking up a few minimal groceries we covered breakfast and snacks easy peasy. There's a little grocery store just around the corner. Apart from general city noise outside it seemed pretty quiet for the big city. This apartment provided a comfortable neighborhood feel for our 5 day holiday.

The apartment is just a short walk to the subway station and subway train #5 gets you directly to plenty of spots in Manhattan without changing trains. The apartment is a scenic 1 hour walk to the Brooklyn Bridge! Restaurants in the neighborhood are absolutely great, we really loved Catfish and Glady's.

Darlene provided a comprehensive list of local restaurants and information and we used it a lot, thank you for that! We would recommend this apartment, it's awesome!

We so enjoyed this lovely apartment, plus it was only a few blocks from our son's bachelor pad. Couldn't have been better, and we look forward to returning!

Awesome way to experience Brooklyn and NY!

  • 5 of 5

Darlene was very easy to work with and answered any and all questions we had prior to and during our visit. The apartment was nice and clean! I loved the fact that detergent and shampoo was already here. The information provided in the rental agreement on restaurants and navigation was also very helpful. The bed was also super comfortable!
