Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
We stayed for 6 nights here and had no problems what so ever. The family that owns it was very sweet and accommodating. The bed was a little harder than I'm used to but not worth spending 3x as much to stay in a hotel in Manhattan. The subway is a couple block walk and if you get on the a train it's an Express to downtown Manhattan which is what we used the entire stay. It was my mom and I staying there alone and not once did we feel unsafe in the neighborhood. There is a 24 hour little corner store on the next block if you need anything. The water pressure and heat was wonderful as well. Would definitely recommend this place and stay here again if I ever get the chance. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!!
Great Value Bed-Stuy Apartment
My Wife and I just finished our stay in this apartment during our first trip to the East Coast. Initially the neighborhood seemed a little rough around the edges with constant loud music playing from a car and group of guys posted up on the nearby corner. Our impression quickly turned to positive when we realized that everyone around this neighborhood was very friendly. Keep in mind this is an older building and not the ritz by any means, but what you get is a clean, secure, and centrally located place to stay for a great price. I find it hard to justify spending an arm and leg for somewhere to shower and sleep, being as how this was our first time to the area the time we spent in the apartment was pretty much just for that purpose. We were only a couple blocks from the Subway and there are several great places to eat nearby and enjoy the local nightlife. Highly recommend staying here if you're just looking for a clean and safe place to crash. We will definitely look at renting this place again when we come back to the area in a few months.
good value for money
The property is as shown in the photos, it was clean and tidy.
The weakest point in our understanding is its location, about 6 blocks from the subway, and in a neighborhood with little movement and dark streets, except Fulton Avenue.
We could not communicate on the day of arrival and went to the property without certainty that we would find someone to receive us.
The air conditioning equipment, although it works, is very noisy, which hinders the rest when it is necessary to use it at night. They should change it for a new one that avoids that inconvenience.
Un soggiorno molto piacevole, con persone molto gentili e disponibili, veramente da consigliare.
L'appartamento è situato in una posizione strategica, vicinissimo alla stazione della metropolitana, in un quartiere molto curato, tranquillo e silenzioso, veramente rilassante, dove si respirava la vera identità di New York. Il Sig John molto gentile e disponibile, come sua figlia Juanita, mi hanno aspettato fino alle 11 di sera per la consegna delle chiavi. Molto gentili. Una casa con tutti i comfort, per una vacanza da ripetere e da consigliare agli amici. Grazie ancora.
The apartment is located in a strategic position, very close to the metro station, in a very nice, quiet and peaceful neighborhood, really relaxing, where you could breathe the true identity of New York. Mr. John, very kind and helpful, like his daughter Juanita, waited for me until 11pm for key collection. Very kind. A house with all the comforts, for a vacation to repeat and to recommend to friends. Thanks again.

We look forward to having you back as our guest.
We were visiting our two daughters in New York for a Holiday New York experience that I had been looking forward to for years. We arrived Friday afternoon and left Tuesday a.m.
The property was as advertised for the most part. Clean, comfortable and convenient to subway. We had issues with the operation though. While the principal contact John seemed to be a nice person we had three incidents that muddled our stay.
We called two hours ahead to report our ETA and then again an hour out. We showed up when we said we would but no one was there to meet us and no messages were returned. We called both numbers several times with no response. We then called VRBO direct and they also were not able to make contact. They did offer to put us up at a local hotel and then as we were leaving 90 minutes later we finally heard from the principal. Apparently there was a family emergency with both parties we were told to contact which prevented them being at the property. I understand things unplanned can happen but when someone is driving 10 hours to get into a property there needs to be a contingency plan for the operators if they are not available. We missed an important family get together because of our late access to the property.
Second thing was the wi fi was never available to us and we could not research activities or get directions to many of the events we were there for until we went to another location with wi fi. That was very disruptive to our plans.
The last thing was minor but also not acceptable management. Monday a.m. prior to our leaving the property for the day we requested toilet paper for the bathroom as the roll was about depleted. We were told it would be brought to the room while we were gone but when we got back that night there was none . Really ? My wife had Kleenex to get us thru but again .... Really ?
I would not use this property again. Sorry for the emergency issues experienced by the team there but this is a business and our experience was not pleasant.
