A well-appointed studio apt on the 3rd floor of a historic brownstone built in 1899, this lovely, private space is filled with sunlight and offers stylish comfort at an affordable rate, a stone's throw from Manhattan. Fully equipped with linens, dishes, and comfortable furnishings, and brimming with historic charm, it boasts three large windows, an original decorative fireplace, brand new appliances, and claw-food bathtub with shower. Though cozy, it is well designed and can sleep 3 by virtue of a comfortable queen sized bed as well as a couch that pulls-out to be a double-bed. Perfect for a couple, small family or close friends. This Brooklyn neighborhood is charming and tree-lined, and the popular neighborhood cafe is a half-block away. Shopping, restaurants, and laundry are all within a short walking distance, and the subway station is a 5-min walk. A trip to Manhattan takes only 18 mins to downtown and 30 to Times Square.
Convenient New York Location: Three blocks from A express to Manhattan (15 mins to Wall Street, 35 to Times Square), ½ block to grocery store and laundromat, one block from coffee shop that is the heart of the neighborhood, one block from good bistro-style restaurant, nice wine shop around the corner, three doors down from small park with playground.
Completely Private Apartment Within A Real Home: This apartment is completely private, with locked door, on the top-floor of a townhouse occupied by a family (us). On rare occasions, guests may see us in the hallway (two parents, a 4-year-old, and a very friendly dog named Lucy), coming in or out of the building. Guests can feel free to ask questions about NYC or the neighborhood at any time, but are also assured of privacy.
Payment: 1/2 Payment will be expected prior to the start of the vacation and the remainder of the payment upon arrival. Payment may be made online, through PayPal, or (if time allows) by check via postal mail.
Cancellation Policy: A full refund will be given if reservation is canceled 30 days in advance. At 15 days, 1/2 of the amount will be refunded. After that, the deposit is no longer refundable.
Leecia grew up in Texas and Mike grew up in New Jersey, but they've lived in New York City now for over 15 years. They run a mid-century modern furniture & accessories business on the ground floor of their home.
Leecia & Mike purchased this apartment in 2005
The great location and original historic details of this house were what sold it.
It's a wonderful thing to be so close to Manhattan, and yet able to come home to what feels like a little village in leafy Brooklyn.
Leecia and Mike, thank you so much for the wonderful vacation rental--great accomodations, great neighborhood, convenient subway stops into Manhattan. We really appreciate all the advice you gave us, and we will definitely recommend this great studio to friends travelling to/visiting the NYC area. We hope to be back soon! Thanks!
I just came from a week spent at this wonderful little apartment, and I can't say enough good things about it. I was working in Manhattan - starting very early each morning, and working long, exhausting days - and having this charming place to come home to every night was invaluable. It is bright, clean, spacious, cozy, and so well-appointed - everything I could have needed was there for me. The subway station is a few short blocks away, and trains to Manhattan run frequently and quickly - I was in Chelsea within 25 minutes of walking out the front door. The neighborhood is friendly and quiet, with trees everywhere and shops just around the corner, and my hosts were friendly and welcoming while still allowing me my space. Absolutely perfect. There is nothing quite like spending a day soaking in all the excitement and energy of Manhattan, and then curling up with a cup of tea and a good book on a comfy sofa in a beautiful space to bring the day to a close. I hope to be back soon.
This place is a nice place to stay. I stayed a week. Has all the amenities. Close
to the subway that takes you to downtown Brooklyn, Manhattan and JFK.
Leecia is a very nice person and informative about the city. I recommend
this place highly.
I visited NYC for a girls trip and stayed at Leecia's and Mike's for the second time. I don't have enough nice things to say about them and their apartments. The place was clean, close to the subway, supermarket and restaurants. I would totally recommend this place to anyone visiting the city either alone or with company. I would totally plan on staying here for future trips.
nous avons vraiment apprécié notre séjour chez Leecia et Mike , l'appartement a tout ce qu'il faut et il y a tout a proximité , métro , supermarchés.. Leecia a toujours eu de bons conseils pour nous et nos visites, nous reviendrons sans aucun problème ! merci !!
L appartement est très bien situé il y a tout ce qu'il faut juste a côté, il est très bien agencé, Leccia a été une hôte formidable et nous a très bien conseillé, nous reviendrons !!! Merci pour tout Leccia .
This was my second stay at this apartment. This time two friends and I rented both apartments for our stay. I love the location of these apartments - convenient to subways and close to great restaurants and convenience stores. No matter what time we arrived back we always felt safe. The apartments are clean and have all we need - the newest back apartment is sunny and the bathroom is especially comfortable with a sky light and great shower. Having the entire second floor to ourselves made for a great girls weekend away! Leecia is always gracious and helpful. We will definitely be back again.
This studio is on the top floor of a historic brownstone in the Stuyvessant Heights area of the Bedford-Stuyvessant neighborhood of Brooklyn. With tree-lined blocks of Victorian brownstones and churches, this lovely residential area is full of friendly neighbors and historic charm . An impressive hybrid of urban and residential, it exemplifies elegant city living as designed in the late 1800's. Rich in African-American history and architectural beauty, it offers restaurants, shopping, groceries, playgrounds, and above all else, a convenient 18-minute subway ride to Manhattan. Close proximity to other notable Brooklyn attractions, such as Prospect Park and other dynamic Brooklyn neighborhoods like hip Williamsburg and classic Park Slope, add to the appeal. Overall, a good affordable home base from which to explore New York City easily while having a calm, cozy place to return to each day.
