Guestbook comments from the owner
The accommodations at 48 Willow Pl. are wonderful !! Comfortable, quiet, and perfectly located, we had an enjoyable stay at Joe and Mary's place. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting New York. Brooklyn Heights is a beautiful, historic neighborhood, and getting to Manhattan was a breeze !! I look forward to my next stay on Willow Place.

We spent 3 days at Willow Place and found the space perfect for us. Gorgeous historic neighborhood with easy access to so many things. Especially nice was the warmth and comfort of the room on an particularly cold and blustery weekend. Our host Joe was very informative and gracious. We will certainly return !!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed a 5 night stay at 48 Willow place. This was our first stay in Brooklyn and we definitely chose gem of a place. Joe Merz greeted us upon our arrival, showed us our lovely room and helped us get our bearings with a carefully drawn map that he left in our room. The house was designed and built by Joe and his Wife, both architects, and was really lovely. It is modern and very functional as well as quiet. It is an easy walk to Brooklyn Park and Dumbo. Close to the subways and bus stops which made getting around easy. We split our time between Manhattan and Brooklyn and found that this was a great location. We would recommend this house on Willow Place to anyone wanting to spend time in a nice section of Brooklyn that is going through some beautiful changes, especially on the waterfront.

Perfect place to stay in New York City!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Joseph's house in May 2013 and I would stay there again any time! the neighbourhood Brooklyn Heights is just beautiful. You come home and feel like you are staying in a small town, even though you are just a 5 minute walk away from the beautiful Brooklyn Heights Promenade that overlooks the skyline of Manhattan!
There are many nice Cafes and Restaurants in walking distance, supermarkets and other nice shops are nearby as well.
The Subway stops are also very close and it takes 15 minutes to get to Times Square via Subway.

The room overlooks a garden and the bed is very big and comfortable! We felt very "at home" at Joseph's house.

I've visited New York many times before and I have never stayed outside of Manhattan. But when I come back in the future, I will definetely try to stay with Joseph in Brooklyn Heights!

Visit New York, have a breath in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5
We had a very good time visiting New York during a whole week. Lower Manhattan is only a subway-jump (or a short walk over Brooklyn Bridge) away from this "base camp" green, calme in spite of the nearby Expressway - comfortable and clean. Joe gave us some good informations about nearby restaurants (Teresa), museums (di:beacon 90 min by train from Grand Central) and walks (The HighLine). We specially appreciated the welcome-flowers, the nice library and the view into the interior garden without any neighbours on the other side.
