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 Brooklyn

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 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!

in the heart of things

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was far better and bigger than I expected.Big lounge and kitchen that contained more than a person could ever use. Bedroom large and heaps of hanging space. Had to walk a distance to find restaurants though.Metro nearby and very user friendly. Would recommend it to anyone.

Convenient location, awesome communication, delightful, everything was great!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for five nights at Darlene's apartment. It was spacious and clean. The full kitchen was wonderful and we felt right at home. Her apartment is close to where our daughter lives and we were able to walk around easily. Found some great restaurants and grocery stores nearby (with the help of Darlene's guidance). Would stay here again in a heartbeat, and probably will next time to travel to visit our daughter and son-in law!

Clean, stylish, good location, perfect host!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've been a guest in one of this owner's proprieties and once again, we were thrilled with our accommodations. The place is comfortable for relaxing, the kitchen well-equipped, the bed super comfortable, and the morning light coming into the front of the apartment through the ample windows is so pleasant. This apartment is located in a versatile neighborhood near easy access to the train or bus or a short Uber/Lyft ride to desired destinations around Brooklyn. Our questions were always answered promptly, flexibly, and graciously. Our kids came over to hang out with us during our stay in the apartment, and on the last night they decided to sleep over - we used the cool couch convertible bed and the Aerobed onsite. Great restaurant recommendations and other local helpful info is provided to renters. We really appreciate our good find in these properties and will return when the opportunity arises. Thank you again!
