About Yardena

We are a married couple. William is a children's books publisher from Ireland. Yardena owns a pet shop in Manhattan, and was born and raised in Israel. We are both certified life coaches.

Yardena purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Yardena chose Brooklyn

We moved to Brooklyn from the West Village, Manhattan, and we just love it. It is peaceful and quiet yet has plenty of shopping around. We are a stone's throw from the supermarket, the Gap, Old Navy, Staples, and the newly renovated and restored Kings Theater.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment has all you need for comfortable, easy living. There is a washer and dryer, dish washer, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, and fully equipped kitchen.

There are two flat screen TVs (60" in the living room) with premium channels.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Staying in Brooklyn was great value for money. Large 2 bedroom apartment, comfy beds, everything you would require to stay there. The host is lovely, helpful and genuinely made us feel at home. The train station is within a 5 - 12 minute walk depending on which line you are taking. Easy to get to Manhattan in 30-40 mins. The Brooklyn neighbourhood is nice with shops and restaurants within walking distance. Felt very safe walking back to the apartment at night.

Great townhouse in Brooklyn! Clean, comfortable and a good location!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious 2 bedroom apartment with so much character. Great amenities, comfortable beds and couch. Very clean! The owners were very accommodating and helpful. They even had some essentials in the kitchen for us (cereal, coffee, etc)!

I highly recommend and plan to stay here again on future trips!

Great place to stay in Brooklyn

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed here for 5 nights and it was a great experience. The apartment had everything we could possibly need and was very comfortable. The neighborhood was perfectly located near two different subway stations and plenty of bus lines. There is also a grocery store just a block away. There were many nights we were out late and I always felt safe walking with my teenagers. If we go back we would most certainly stay there again.

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay for our trip. The apartment was spotless and very comfortable for the four of us. Yardena was a very gracious host and very helpful with everything that we asked her. We didn't have much time to explore the neighbourhood but there are certainly a lot of things that we would have liked to have seen in Brooklyn if we'd had more time. I would definitely recommend this place and would stay here again.

Better than advertised brownstone. and looks just like the photos!

  • 4 of 5

For us, this offered us both cost savings and more space compared to a Manhattan hotel. About 90 feet away, we left our car street-parked four days, moving before the scheduled street sweeper came. This very clean property is in a safe, well-light Brooklyn neighborhood a few blocks to two different subway lines going to Manhattan in about 30 minutes. The gracious owner ALWAYS quickly returned emails and texts, easing any doubts as a first-time Home-Away user. She was very professional. The attractively restored apartment was extremely clean. It was just as pictured on Home Away. Actually we thought it looked bigger. The neighborhood was quieter and sunnier than Manhattan. Only thing, as in all of New York apparently, car and truck horns start up as soon as 7:30 or 8:00 am, for NO APPARENT REASON! Not a bad deal at all. We recommend this landlord and her clean, homey place. As we went into the city daily, I cannot comment on nearby activities or businesses except to say Nordstrum Rack , Macy's and Banana Republic are nearby, a couple subway stops away around the corner of a popular Greek diner with a huge , delicious menu. The neighborhood was a mix of small businesses and brownstones, only a couple blocks to single-family homes. Not a trendy area, but a mix of quiet, hard-working people, this is close to the part of Brooklyn's booming redevelopment area.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay.

Yardena and her husband were extremely helpful with both local Flatbush and wider New York information. And just basically very welcoming overall.

Beautifully renovated house.

Will recommend to people coming to New York for a visit.
