Brooklyn Rules!

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful apartment with many of the original features and delightful personal touches that made staying in NY a joy. It was quiet,comfortable and welcoming,providing a real 'refugio' from the vibrancy of this fabulous city. It is in a great part of Brooklyn, with enough of the original flavour retained, heaps to explore such as the Museum and the beautiful Prospect park, without even beginning on Manhattan. Good food and coffee, and loads of excellent walking.
The owner was very welcoming. Having come to NY at least 5 times to see my expatriate Aussie son, this was by far my best accommodation experience. I hope to stay here again next time.

Clean and friendly appartement

  • 4 of 5
We visited New York for a week and stayed in Brooklyn in this friendly, clean and beautiful apartment. The apartment is large, you've got a very clean kitchen and beds in which you can sleep fantastically. What was really impressive was the friendliness of all the people in the neighbourhood. Everyone tried to help the "tourists". We really felt at home in this accomodation!

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was spacious, very comfortable, and well kept.
The owner took pains to make us welcome and comfortable. Tips for places dine and shop were helpful
Because the purpose of our trip was to be with family, we did not partake in all the tourist activities that would interest others. There.was lots to do nearby. Much of the neighborhood is being restored and will get even better for visitors.

fantastic time in Brooklyn and Manhattan

  • 5 of 5
we had a fantastic time in this Brooklyn Apartment, ideally located to get to Manhattan.
i would recommend a subway pass for $30 per person for 7 days and the apartment is 5 mins walk to the subway and you can be in Manhattan in 15 mins and what view over the bridge on the subway of Manhattan.
the apartment is great and the local shops and bars are nearby.
Krista was very helpful and let us stay a bit longer in the apartment on our checkout day due to all the snow.
i would like to thank her for all her help and great coffee and banana bread.
will look forward to going back when the weather is warmer and would have no hesitation in stopping here again.
thank you

A perfect home away!

  • 5 of 5
Great neighborhood with superb accessibility.
Lots of nice bars and restaurants in the area not to mention Prospect Park. The apartment was clean, functional and overall very pleasant. The apartment owner, Krista, was friendly and provided us with useful information. A perfect stay for us being five adults and one toddler. Highly recommended.

Perfect Perfect Perfect

First time to new York so you know....a little on edge. Airport to Taxi to Brooklyn to Private Residence.....well every bit of tension evaporated as I walked in the door , smelled the fresh bread baking and received a smile the size of Manhattan from Jan who helps Krista prepare the apartment. Krista was a delight and so prompt to answer all my questions. We felt like we got a great deal on the perfect property for us. Thank you so much for sorting us out in such an excellent manner.
