Guestbook comments from the manager

Adorable place and family!

We stayed here for a little less than a week and it was perfect! The family was very sweet and helpful. They had a map with suggestions of places to check out and anything else we may have needed to know. The location was really nice, close to the subway and the street seemed very safe. When we came home late it wasn't scary or an issue at all. The room was very clean and maintained, they kept us very comfortable! If I ever need a place to stay in NY this will be on the top of my list! Loved it!

So nice!

  • 5 of 5

The studio is nice and pleasant, well equipped and has a nice personal touch to it (which so many 'commercial' apartments lack). The bed is excellent (very important) and we would like to have the bathroom in our own house. The studio reflects the owners who redesigned it: charming, welcome and with eye for detail. The residential area in which it is located makes you realise there is more to New York than Manhattan.

Dear Kermit and Azadeh, thank you for your warm welcome. It was a pleasure to stay in the studio and it felt like 'our house' in New York.

Immaculate Home Away from Home, Can't Wait to Return!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a lovely time in this sweet studio. It was a pleasure to come home to a quiet, cozy apartment after the intensity of the day's sightseeing and hunker down to watch some movies. The space was comfortable, super clean, stylish and thoughtfully arranged. The neighborhood is very safe, has lovely local establishments for dining, and is an easy and fast commute to downtown Manhattan via subway. The local street art is not to be missed and was a highlight for us! Also, the booking process was seamless—we felt that we were in the hands of true professionals and all of our questions were handled promptly. We ran into the owners once during our trip and they were extremely hospitable and friendly. They gave us excellent recommendations for their favorite local restaurants which were a short walk away. We look forward to returning annually. Highly recommended!

Charming Studio

  • 5 of 5

This was a great way to experience New York as a New Yorker by actually staying in a great neighborhood, walking the 5 minutes to the subway stations and going into Manhattan to see the sites on a daily basis. The place was a lot better in person, everything is clean and has all the amenities necessary to make your stay super comfortable. The place was incredibly warm, my concern was how we would handle the NY winter being from Los Angeles but, surprisingly it was very cozy inside the studio. On your way to the subway there are coffee shops, little grocery stores, food carts and restaurants. Our host were incredibly accommodating to our arrival time and departure schedules, made our stay so much easier. Overall our experience was great and would much rather stay here than in a hotel.

They almost got it right! Very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

First I'd like to start by saying my husband and myself enjoyed our stay. The place was small, but very comfortable to stay in. We had everything we needed. We loved the neighborhood. Close grocery store and subway station. We would absolutely stay again because we're very easy to please. We enjoyed making tea for ourselves every evening and morning on the stovetop. There were, however, a few things I would have changed or liked to have known before we booked and I'm sure other bookers would like to know. The morning of our arrival we received our welcome letter that explained the owners who lived in the house upstairs had a one and five year old and were active. That was a bit of an understatement. The kids sounded like a stampede most mornings. Some mornings they started as early as 6:30. My husband and I tried to sleep in as it was our vacation and this was a little annoying. Nothing to freak out over. There were a few mornings we listened to pounding for an hour or so. Not sure what it was. If you enjoy your pillows at home, I'd advise you pack them. The pillows were very uncomfortable. Lastly, it was January so it was cold. The main heater that was supposed to be on was giving off no heat, and the secondary heater they provided was directly under the air conditioner unit that was in the window. The freezing cold air leaking through the air conditioner unit by way of the window was insane. Basically the window was open and it was freezing. We had to barricade the window with blankets to lessen the cold air leakage. If your looking for a warm place this isn't it. I know this sounds like a bad review, but we really did like the place. It was perfect for us. These were just things I would have like to have known for our stay to make it better.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we are so pleased to know that you would choose our studio again for a future visit. We really wish you had been in touch with us during your stay, as we would have of course, addressed your concerns immediately! As the rest of our reviews can attest, we take our guests’ comfort very seriously and consider it our number one priority. After we read your review, we immediately went to the studio and found that a previous guest had turned off the heat by turning the knob on the radiator itself—which was easy to resolve. As an added measure, we have also removed the window A/C unit. Had we known that the apartment wasn’t warm enough for you, we would have taken care of it right away. The apartment is now cozy and warm as always—as our current guest can attest! In addition, prospective guests should know that in addition to the radiator, there is also a wall heater that you can manually control should you want additional heat during your stay. With regards to our pillows—they are the same brand and quality pillows that we use in our own home and also in our other rental apartments. We certainly find them to be quite comfortable. To date, this is the first instance where it’s been brought to our attention that guests have found them uncomfortable and we were sorry to hear they were not to your liking. Our two boys are at school for the great majority of the day. There’s a brief spell in the mornings as they prepare to leave for school where it’s possible to hear them, though most guests report that any pitter patter of their feet is not enough to wake them. In the rare instance where we have a guest who is particularly sensitive to noise, we always make sure to keep the kids particularly quiet. All confirmed guests receive our property manager’s contact info as well our own personal contact info and we always encourage our guests to contact us with any concerns during their stay, so that we can immediately handle any issues that may come up. Thanks again for your review and we look forward to welcoming you back to the apartment!

Cute Apartment in a great neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is just like it looks in the pictures, everything was clean and prepared for our arrival. The neighbourhood was very quiet and we went out for mexican at Mesa Azteca (which was about 4 blocks away), the food and atmosphere were wonderful. Subway stops were nice and close, grocery store was within 3 blocks. It was actually nice to be staying away from Manhattan, out of the hustle and bustle. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Map

Times Square
Car: not necessary

Straddling the neighborhoods of Bushwick, Brooklyn and Ridgewood, Queens, the apartment is 5 blocks away from the Dekalb Street 'L' train station in Brooklyn—one of the best subway lines in the city. Union Square, the heart of downtown Manhattan, is only 15 minutes away via a direct subway ride; Williamsburg, Brooklyn's stylish boutiques, bars and restaurants are only a 7 minute train ride away.

Ours is a quieter, more residential neighborhood, but it is in an exciting stage of growth. In the last 5 years there has been a huge influx of artists and creatives in our immediate area. As a result, there is now a solid (and rapidly growing) number of stylish cafes, restaurants, wine bars, art galleries, yoga studios, and a great 24-hour gourmet/organic grocery store all within a 10-12 minute walk from the apartment. There are also local Italian bakeries, Halal butcher shops, Equadorian bodegas, Polish food markets and the best tasting Mexican tamales we've ever come across. All relevant information can be found in our Guest Welcome binder in the apartment and we hope that you will explore these local gems during your visit.
