The Owner purchased this apartment in 2009
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!!!!
We just came back from a 5 day trip for The Brooklyn Girl Film Festival. This apartment was a perfect location for us, and it is lovely as well. The owners have done a great job outfitting it with everything that you would need for your visit. So glad that we chose to stay here, rather than a hotel.
This Brownstone was wonderful! I took my mom to NYC to see the lights and tree for Christmas. I could not have asked for a better place to stay. The apartment was spacious, clean, great location and made you feel like home. I have been to NYC before and stayed in a hotel but after renting this apartment never will I stay in a hotel again. It gave me and my mom a living in NY feel. We had so much space and everything was so nice! I loved the neighborhood and it was so easy to ride the L train into the city. I think this wonderful rental was the cheery on top to a wonderful vacation! I highly recommend!!
We loved staying here. it had everything we needed it was just like coming home after a day out on the tourist trail. The decor is simple yet good quality and having access to a computer and internet was a bonus for research etc.The beds were firm and sooo comfy. It was autumn so the central heating was appreciated too.
The kitchen was great with all we needed not that we used it that much.
Staying here felt so much better than a hotel experience in the city.
Which is not far on the subway. The subway itself is such a buzz, buskers etc.
You can see manhattan skyline from the cemetery end of the st., and there is a great food market on the way from subway other end. Thankyou to the owner and manager for being so helpful. Keep up the good work.
We are going to try to get back to NYC and guess where we are going to stay.!
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.
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.
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.
