VERY COMFORTABLE STAY, CLOSE TO SUBWAY LINE

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay in John and Kim's studio. We stayed in the studio on the 3rd floor, which was clean and beautifully renovated, with large mirrors, ceiling fans, a stainless steel gas stove/toaster, full-sized fridge, kitchen appliances, and cupboards stocked with kitchenware and utensils for easy cooking. When we contacted John for a sponge to wash dishes, he provided one that same morning! John and Kim were very responsive to communication, helping us with check-in and allowing us to store our luggage for a few extra hours on the day we left.

The house is conveniently located ~5min walk from the A and C subway line, which is a 30-40 min ride into Manhattan, where we spent most of our time. When we returned on evenings, there was some street noise (friendly neighbours and children enjoying music and BBQ on their steps during weekend nights), but no more than one would expect from living in the city. The neighbourhood had a great sense of community, and we felt quite safe.

COOL!

  • 5 of 5
Hello! This place was really cool!
The owner was extremely kind at every step of our stay. It was clean and well furnished. About 12 mins walk to the train and 25 mins to Manhattan by train. The area is also pretty safe. The 5 people sleep basically in the same room. The bathroom is very pretty and the kitchen and fridge are good! You will certainly enjoy your stay here! Thanks John!

OVERALL SATISFIED WITH THE APARTMENT.

  • 4 of 5
First of all, the pictures did not match the apartment that we got... so when John welcomed us and showed us the apartment I was slighly irritated as I thought that the flat did look different from the pictures we had seen on this site.

Nevertheless, the kitchen was huge and well equipped, however it was missing a proper brush to clean up any dishes and I think some of the kitchen equipment could be replaced with new items, but it was ok for what we needed it as we were out for most of the time. The fridge was a bit noisy at times which was a bit annoying, especially during the night.

From the pictures we had seen, we expected 2 double beds. There was only one double bed and 2 couches. However, I think a couch does not replace a proper bed with a mattrass. That was a bit disappointing as it was the main reason for my friend and I that we decided to take this apartment.

The bathroom was in the hallway and we couldn't lock the door from the outside. On the same level there is another apartment, who in pricinple can just walk into the bathroom.

There was also a huge outside area, which we didn't expect. So that was a positive surprise. TV and radio were included and working fine.

Locationwise, the apartment is close to Nostrand Ave subway, which is just 2 blocks away. The neighboorhood seemed fine to us as well.

Overall, John was really nice and welcoming and arranged for a second set of bedsheets.
We would probably book again John's apartment. It just would have been good to know what the place actually looks like in reality, so I'd recommend to update the pictures for future prospects.

Thanks so much for having us John. We had an amazing time in NYC.

We really enjoyed our stay. The place was clean, beds were comfortable and we find everything we need in the kitchen and the bathroom. John was really helpful and his wife was adorable too.

GREAT LOCATION! NICE NEIGHBORHOOD!

  • 5 of 5
First impressions were great. The place was clean and laid out nicely for four adults. The grocery store was within walking distance and it carried everything we needed. People around the neighbourhood were more than friendly to help out with locations of various spots. Beds were comfortable, kitchen had everything we needed.
The local subway was about three blocks away, about a 5 minute walk. An east train ride into Manhattan. This is a great neighbourhood to hang at if you want to get away from the bright lights and big city the rates were reasonable and we enjoyed every moment.
The flights of stairs might be an issue for some but they were wide and easy to climb. Everything you need is close by. The owners live on site so it was easy to check in and ask for help when we ended it. I have stayed in apartments in Manhattan several times but I loved the feeling if this outstanding Brooklyn neighbourhood. We always felt safe. Thanks John for your great hospitality. Yvette, Les, Julie, Rodney. From Canada!!

PERFECT PLACE FOR THE LOCATION AND PRICE!

  • 5 of 5
We chose this location since we were 6 (2 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 younger ones) and renting in Manhattan was way out of our budget. I'm so glad I found this apartment! John was really helpful through all the process and quick to response to all my questions! The apartment is about 7 min. walk to the subway and about 20-30 minutes to Manhattan, depending on where you want to go. Since the subway runs 24 hours, there was no problem coming back to the apartment really late (or early) in the morning by subway. Another good point about this place is that we can park in the street for free which was perfect for us (riding from Montreal). The neighborhood was really friendly, quiet and we felt safe all the time! The apartment was really clean and even if we were 6, we had no problem with the space since we were only there to sleep and eat breakfast. Plenty of towels were provided with sheets for the futon as well! The beds are comfortable too! We would definitely go back to this place anytime! For the price and location, it's hard to beat! Thanks a lot John & Kim!
