Brooklyn Townhome Rental Photos and Description

sleeps 5, one bathroom ,one bedroom

On the third floor of a hundred years old brownstone, la Maison des Sirenes is perfect for anybody appreciating style and comfort. Affordable but not 'cheap', La Maison des Sirenes is well dressed!!! The apartment was decorated with taste and I meticulously picked every single of furnitures myself. This is the first apartment I ever rented as a vacation rental(August 2007).

It is located on one of the most coveted block of Bedstuy(tree lined). It features a master bedroom,an antique bathroom, fully equipped Tuscan style kitchen,dining room,living room and an amazing bamboo lined deck with table,umbrella and wrought iron daybed. Perfect for barbecue in summer,sun bathing brunches on weekends or simply relaxing.

Most importantly the apartment is a few statins away from Manhattan.

Bedstuy used to be known for its motto 'do or die' . Not anymore!!!! Now it is best known for its incredibly beautiful Brownstone. It was fearures recentlt in the Time Out magazine as ' one of the best neighbourhood ' of NYC.The strong community and abundant beautiful brownstone townhouses contribute to its growth and charm. New cafes,restaurants,bakeries ,boutique ,galleries nd wine bars are sprouting everywhere receiving much attention by Zagat, time out,NY magazines and blogs. A diverse mix of students,hipsters,artists,crative professionals,architects and attorneys of all races continue to move to the neighbourhood.

The area is serviced well by the A abd C train with commute times 15 mn to lowervManhattan and 30 mn to midtown.(times square).

Bedstuy was home to famous artists such as Notorious BIG,Lil Kim,Mos Def,Chris rock,,poet June Jordan and activist Hattie Carthan. Bedstuy streets are often represented in media : Spike lee movies, MIA music video.....

There is a strong sense of pride being part of Bedstuy and being its pioneers.

The Ultimate Hostess

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 10, 2010

My experience can be summed up in a little story:

We arrived to New York on a beautiful summer's morning just in time to celebrate Labor Day 2009. My cousin, who had never been to NYC was weary of anything that wasn't a 4 -star manhattan hotel with pillow mints and room service. As I led her out of Manhattan and onto the streets Brooklyn, she appeared uncomfortable- clearly a diva out of her element.

She followed me up the plush tree-lined street until we arrived in front of a beautiful brownstone. Nathalie, the hostess greeted us and welcomed us inside. She greeted us as if we had met before. Her warmth made it feel like a homecoming of sorts. As Nathalie led us into the house I looked over at my cousin. The fear and apprehension disappeared as the sunlight highlighted the awe and wonder on her face.

We found ourselves in a beautifully decorated Brooklyn brownstone with fantastic design sensibilities that, thanks to Nathalie, felt like our home. The walls and floors were adorned with tastefully decorated elements that gave the room an elegant personality. And messages like "you are beautiful" etched in the mirror reminded us of the power of simple words.

With the sun beaming on her face, her delight (and relief) couldn't be hidden under sunglasses. "Cuz, this feels like a dream! This place is amazing!" That weekend in September is one of the most memorable trips I have ever had, and it's all thanks to Nathalie.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a lovely review.
I work really hard to provide comfort and a memorable experience to my guest. I know I succeeded when a guest comes back.
I have been changing a lot of things in the apartement recently to make it more intimate and less impersonnal. I want it to feel like someone is living in it ,it is as well more and more "me"!
Thank you so much again.

Great stay at Maison Des Sirenes

When I booked my trip to NYC I specifically planned to spend some time in areas away from central Manhattan in order to broaden my experiences of the City. This apartment certainly helped me in that respect.

It is located in Bed Sty in Brooklyn, about 40 minutes from Penn Street Station in central Manhattan and on a direct C line subway service so getting in and out of Manhattan is very straightforward.

The neighbourhood is colourful and could seem a bit intimidating at first but my wife & I felt perfectly fine there, even walking back from the Subway Station (5 - 10 minute walk) at midnight.

The apartment itself was perfect for us. Comfortable bed and good sleeping area. There is a good cooking area though we mostly only used it for breakfast in the morning. Also a big lounge area with decent TV with zillions of channels. Add to that a reasonable bathroom and a small private outside terrace for when the weather is good.

In terms of value for money compared to a room in a Manhattan hotel the is no competition in my mind. You get so much more space & freedom staying in an apartment.

Would I go back again, Yes definitely.

Que du bonheur!!!

avons passe de bons et chaleureux moments dans cet apartement coquet a l'image de nathalie,notre charmante hote. Les petits dejeuners sur la terrasse ensoleillee avec le chant des oiseaus en prime,un privilege au coeur de la grosse pomme. Nous avons adore le quartier de Bedford/stuyvesant car les gens sont souriants et aimables. le gospel le dimanche au coin de marcus garvey est un moment inoubliable. Tres rapidement sur Manhattan avec le metro express,nous preferons sejourner dans les quartiers des blocks partys, des brooklyn boogies du "do the right thing"....un quartier authentique.,

This beautiful apartment is situated in the new upcoming neighbourhood in Brooklyn: Bedstuy. It is 15 mn away from Manhattan downtown and 30 mn away from Times Square. Bedstuy is the secret of New York and people are fighting right now to get a house here. A lot of artists, musicians, writer are moving in.

It is a couple of blocks from the main street Fulton where the subway can be found and all kind of stores(supermarket with organic products...) and restaurants (mainly west Indian).

Fortgreen with all its cafes and restaurants is within reach.

Everything that you need to spend a perfect vacation is here: subway (A and C), bus, restaurants on Tompkins, shops, beauty salons (manicure ,waxing....)

Other Activities: shopping
