About Karen Shaw-Taylor

I am an elementary/ primary school teacher that love meeting new people and traveling. I am a wife and mother of 3.

Why Karen Shaw-Taylor chose Brooklyn

This property is the ideal location for visitors as it is located between two major subway/ metro stations and has easy access to Manhattan. It is also where you would call home after a busy and hectic day of touring the big apple. You come home to peace and serenity.

What makes this townhome unique

I also have 2 other apartments available for rental. Each apartment offers the original architectural design.

A Great Place

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in Brooklyn. The apartment was clean, well located (close to metro, shops and Manhattan), very well appointed and equipped. We were very well received by Karen and David, which have been available during our stay. Thanks again from all of us. We recommend this property to anyone wanting to experience New york.

Bergen´s best beds

  • 4 of 5
It was our very first time in NYC and this apartment was a good choice to stay for our one-week sightseeing trip.
Karen and David are excellent hosts, lovely and helpful! They took time to tell us all about the places we´ve planned to visit and also to give us lots of information about the interesting and authentic neighbourhood.
The apartment is very spacious with huge bedrooms, living room, a full sized kitchen and a shower bath, everything in good condition and very clean. And there´s a garden place with a grill on the backside. In the evening it is calm and comfortable to relax from the busy day in Manhattan.
The people in the neighbourhood were absolutely friendly and also very helpful. There are lots of local bars, shops, diners and a supermarket on the halfway from subway station Nostrand Ave (5 or 10 minutes walk to the apartment). There are two subway lines (A/C and 3/4) one on each side with a ten or fifteen walk to the nearest station to get everywhere you want (20 minutes to Downtown Manhattan).
For the car service from/to Newark Airport you have to pay approximately 80 - 90.- $ incl. Toll and Tip. (Ask for the price before you start or order!!!)
We did enjoy our week and recommend that vacation rental for your trip to NYC!
Karen and David, thank you so much for your lovely hospitality!

A Taste of Brooklyn from Three Brits

  • 4 of 5
We were three Brits visiting for site-seeing from England.

We didn't really know what to expect and the only hiccup upon our arrival was not getting our heads around the US dialling code, to contact Karen, so our arrival didn't go as smooth as we would have expected but that was through no fault of our excellent hosts, Karen and David, who gave us a very warm welcome.

The apartment was huge and warm and was in no way without space, it fulfilled our needs completely.

Karen looked after us and looked out for our friend Zoe, who was arriving later on in the day from Philadelphia, ensuring we were reunited.

The neighbourhood was interesting, local bars were fun and Karen made sure we were acquainted with the local watering holes, which we took full advantage of.

I would recommend this apartment, simply because it's off the regular tourist trail and it was more of an experience than the first time we came, when we stayed on Manhattan itself.

The local food was tasty and the portions were huge so be careful if you're watching your waistline but, who cares, enjoy!

Thanks again Karen and David for a very enjoyable stay.

Recommended!

The subway stop is only ten mins walk and great bars up the street on Vandebuilt. 5 stars from me.

Nothing is too much trouble for Karen and David and we would personally like to thank them again, they're welcome in England any time.


Thank You.

As a visitor to this site I always take special care of checking feedback on apartments to make sure things are all right, and I find it important to share my experiences here as well. And rest assured: we had an absolutely great stay at this beautiful and very, very spacious apartment located in a nice old brownstone. The owners were very friendly and helpful; both Karen and David make sure your stay is worthwile, and they do this in a polite yet instantly comforting way.

It's difficult to find places to stay in NYC where you can really speak of possessing space (unless you are willing to pay an awful lot of money), but in Brooklyn it is possible, and in this apartment definitely so. If you want, you can do cartwheels throughout the place (or, if not, you can simply enjoy the size of the apartment without any wild stunts as well).

The C-train subway station (Kingston-Throop) is nearby, as is the 3-train subway station (Kingston), and with the combination of those two you can get just about anywhere in NYC. A supermarket is located in a ten minutes - or less - walk, and the kitchen is well equipped. And if you're not in the mood for cooking, there's a wide variety of small places where you can eat or take-out.

We've had a great time here, and we do recommend the place!

A Great Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Bergen's Best is truly a great place to stay. Karen's place really felt like a home away from home when my sister, brother and I visited NY for Labor Day. The location is great, the neighborhood is quiet and everything you need is within walking distance. Anytime we had questions or concerns (both before we arrived and after) she was quick to respond and she made us feel very comfortable. This was my 1st time not staying with family in NY and after this visit, family stays have now become a thing of the past. I will without hesitation visit here again.
