Easter Break in New York

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was extremely spacious with original characters maintained which made it very homely. Really liked the home-made cake on arrival and little things like shampoo/conditioner, tea and coffee etc exceeded expectations.

Description was very accurate.

Property was spotless.

Instructions were clear and we had contact details of owner in case there was a problem which was reassuring when arriving late in New York for first time.

Would very much recommend the property to friends.

We shopped in the local stores for breakfast and enjoyed the local coffee shops. As this was our first trip to New York we enjoyed all the main attractions, watched baseball, basketball and a Broadway show.

We love Brooklyn!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Crown Heights. The apartment was a lovely, well-maintained old brownstone. We were very comfortable and enjoyed the location near the subway, restaurants, parks, and other attractions.

The owner's information was helpful and her housekeeper was as well. Great trip.

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.
