A Shaker Hymn of simplicty, comfort and good taste

  • 5 of 5
Kermit and Azadeh have worked very hard to create a warm and welcoming apartment that made our nine day visit to New York a delight. They renovated this hundred year old apartment into a Shaker hymn of simplicity, comfort and good taste. It was a wonderful place to return to after a long hard day crammed with visiting museums, stores and some 10,000 people on the subways. The kitchen is spacious and well appointed and there are plentiful closets. Kermit thoughtfully installed a ceiling light in the huge shower in the updated bathroom. The dining room has a long refectory table, so you can spread out the treasures that you acquired during the day and admire them while eating dinner.
There is a corner grocery store a block from the apartment, and a supermarket two blocks away. There is a lovely coffee shop three blocks away, which became our daily stop on the way to the subway station, which is 5 blocks from the apartment. Kermit and Azadeh live two doors down, so they were always available to help.
We highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a less expensive alternative to the pricey Manhattan rentals. Our thanks to Kermit and Azadeh for helping to make our vacation the best one ever!!!!

Well-designed, great experience!

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I were exploring Manhattan and Brooklyn for 3 days. The booking process was seamless,the directions were clear and helpful, and the maps and tips on car service, public transportation, and local cafes were very useful to us. It is a very well- maintained and well-managed experience and we definitely appreciated all the thought that has gone into this.

We are both designers and we absolutely loved how well thought-out everything was, from the choice of tiles to lighting to the kettle that matches the kitchen weight, and even the toilet roll holder.

The owners Azi and Kermit have done a beautiful job. It was always a treat to come home to such a lovely apartment every night of our stay. Our contact person, Katie, was prompt and helpful in replying to our inquiries, and everything was clearly communicated.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
I'm a three-peat customer, and happy to say I will stay again in the future.

I live in Brooklyn and have utilized the different spaces for visits from family and friends. The apartments are beautiful, spacious and incredibly clean. A kitchen with every utensil and appliance you could hope for...an in-unit washer and dryer...enough space to comfortably sleep SIX...what more could you ask for?

Convenience is an added plus, with an easy walk to the L and a grocery store a block or two down.

To boot, Azi & Kermit (who own and manage the properties) are wonderful. They have impeccable taste and are a joy to communicate with.

Stay here! It's well worth it.

Loved It!!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we walked in the front door, we were impressed! The charm of the historic building is amazing! From the beautiful wooden staircase to the wood floors and amazing decor, this apartment is perfect! All rooms look exactly as shown in the pictures and are comfortable, immaculately clean and perfectly decorated! The layout accomodated our family of 5 much better than a hotel room would have, giving us plenty of space and amenities (washer/dryer, full kitchen, computer with wireless internet access, comfy beds, large screen TV in cozy sitting area, large kitchen table, central air) and providing us a welcome retreat after a full day of sightseeing in the city. The L subway train was approx. a 5 minute walk from the house, where we picked up a 15 minute or so ride to Union Square. Azi and Kermit were wonderful to work with. Through emails, texts and personal interaction, they were a wealth of knowledge and assistance prior to and during our first visit to New York. They have a very detailed book of information in the apartment that includes menus and local establishments for groceries, coffee, dining etc. Using one of their suggestions, we had a delicious Italian meal delivered right to the apartment one evening. Our family absolutely loved our stay at the Stockholm Street Apartment, and would highly recommend it to anyone!

Great little home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Azi and Kermit's lovely apartment! Well-suited for a family with kids - lots of sleeping options for everyone, in-suite laundry, dishwasher, very functional kitchen. Not sure I would recommend it for a group of adults though unless privacy is not high on your list of priorities: the two bedrooms are only separated by a pocket door, and you have to walk through the one to get to the other. And there is no door between the main bedroom and the sleeping nook. It was more than fine for our purposes though (two adults and three kids ages 9, 11 and 14). The apartment was super-clean, and our hosts were welcoming and helpful. We were less than 10min by foot from the subway, and once on the subway, less than 15min from Lower Manhattan. Lots of bus service too - invest in a seven-day MetroCard ($29) if you are there for a week, you will definitely make use of it and quickly get your money's worth!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review!

We should note that although the 2 larger bedrooms are next to each other, both bedrooms do allow access to the common spaces without going through the other bedroom—the smaller bedroom has a secondary door that leads to a private hall connecting it to the rest of the apartment, so no walk-through is necessary!

Thanks again and we hope you'll stay with us on your next visit to NYC!

Stay with older parents and teenaged child

  • 4 of 5
The apartment is pleasant and well-appointed. We felt very comfortable. We appreciated the washer and dryer, selection of books, the computer, and the period feel of the place. Travel into the city was a lengthier process than we had expected, with transit times of about an hour if subway connections or any walking was involved, and this was the case with most trips. The neighborhood was quiet and we had no hesitation about being out after dark. Overall, we enjoyed being in a neighborhood rather than in a hotel.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful review! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay.

There are certainly parts of the city that take longer to get to via subway, however our local train (the L train) is a 7-8 minute walk from our apartment and then takes 15-20 minutes (no transfer involved) to get to many of our favorite neighborhoods in the city: Union Square, Chelsea, West Village, Gramercy Park, East Village and Nolita/SOHO. In addition, you can get to Times Square, Central Park and Ground Zero all within about 30-35 minutes total.

Thanks again and take care!

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.
