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....

Darlene's home is amazing. She was very easy to coordinate details with and we were able to book our stay months in advance. Would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful Place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was incredible! It has everything that you would need and then some. Darlene responded to any questions that I had before my trip quickly and also provided helpful instructions for the apartment as well as suggestions for things to do in the neighborhood. It was a very comfortable place to stay and look forward to staying there again on my next trip.

Thank you Darlene!

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Darlene's Crown Heights apartment is spectacular. My mother, boyfriend, and I had a great time in Brooklyn, and looked forward to coming back to Darlene's each evening. The apartment is equipped with everything you need, it's beautifully decorated, and comfortable. Be sure to book it for your next stay! Thanks again, Darlene.

Convenient Location with Upscale Features

  • 4 of 5

A lovely apartment within easy walking distance to the subway. Our teens liked the curved TV and the fact that Dunkin Donuts was so close. Beautiful luxury touches in the apartment and the fact that we could all spread out at the end of the day made this a good choice for us. We were pleasantly surprised that we were able to navigate the subway without problems (the City Mapper app helped). Darlene was very reachable and made our stay easy, including letting us drop off our bags before "check-in" time and providing suggestions for local eateries.
