My husband and I have just spent a very wonderful month in this sweet house and enjoyed every moment. The house is roomy, clean, well equipped, nicely furnished and very comfortable. The photos show the house exactly as it is. Tom and Marina are perfect hosts and did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. The neighborhood was very safe and there were lots of local businesses and restaurants nearby. The nearest subway stop (Buhre) was closed during our visit but Middletown stop was just 5 blocks away but there is a bus (BX8 ) which stops just across the street from the house and goes right to the Middletown stop---bus runs every few minutes during the week. The commute to downtown Manhattan was a bit longer than we anticipated---about an hour on the train once you get to the station depending on delays. This seems like a long commute when you do it twice a day but we rode the subway every day for a month and the trade-off for us was having a roomy, comfortable house in a safe, quiet neighborhood at the end of a busy day in NYC and secure, private parking for our car right behind the house. We did not find any other rental which incuded private, safe parking. To be honest, we also enjoyed taking the train like "real New Yorkers" out of the typical tourist areas. We loved our time in this house and are very happy to recommend it to anyone who wants a special place to stay in NYC.
