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.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY, VERY FRIENDLY HOSTS

  • 5 of 5
We actually ended up staying in 3 of the owner's properties and they were all great. The owner was very kind to us and allowed us to extend our stay. The location is good and there are plenty of great restuarants within walking distance. We would definitely recommend this place to travelers. We had no complaints.

IDEAL APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The apartment had everything needed including a tea-pot for us Brits!!! The apartment was spotlessly clean, and Kermit couldn't have been more help in setting us right about the area. There are some very good restaurants around - we particularly liked Northeast Kingdom - and the gourmet grocery store next door is very good if you're eating in. Travel to Manhattan on the L Line is easy and truly is only 15 minutes to Union Square. Also recommended is Kermit's suggestion of taking the L Line to the last station before the river (can't remember the name) and then taking the ferry to Brooklyn Bridge and walking over the bridge into Manhattan. We also recommend walking the Hi-line on the west side. We would certainly stay here again.

A DELIGHTFUL HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
The property is a beautifully designed and maintained space with everything I needed at my fingertips - an incredibly comfortable bed, free and full access to all TV channels, computer and wifi, equipped kitchenette and the best shower in the gleaming clean bathroom that I'm still remembering fondly. I felt cosy and secure while staying there on my own. The space has been designed to comfort as well as delight - everything was reassuringly solid, thoughtfully inviting and beautifully laid out.
It took only a day to get familiar with the neighbourhood, which was quiet and cosy as well (a local supermarket is a few blocks away, and there are many restaurants within walking distance too). Though I'd been intimidated by the thought of the New York subway system, that too became easy to navigate, and the closest subway stop from the property took me quickly wherever I wanted (within Brooklyn as well as in Manhattan).
The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful, and they really ensured my stay was wonderful. I'm looking forward to staying there again.

PERFECT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
this studio has to be the perfect brooklyn experience.the street is a historic location still paved in brick with well kept early 1900 rowhouses.kermit and azi ,very amenable hosts,have set up an amazing studio where everything is so carefully thought out that you think you are living beyond the confines of what is usually studio space.transportation to the big apple is within easy walking distance and you are in the midst of manhattan in 15 minutes,at a fraction of the cost downtown.great eating reccomendations and a grocery store down the street only enhances the experience.new york affordability in clean comfortable premises.what more can you ask.?

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.
