Carole Musaracchia & Beverly Balbirsingh purchased this studio in 2005

Why Carole Musaracchia & Beverly Balbirsingh chose Brooklyn

Our home is situated in an up and coming section of Bed Sty. It is a 10 minute car drive to both the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. We enjoy the conveniences to activities in and around Brooklyn and Manhattan. We like the vibe of the neighborhood and the diverse population.

What makes this studio unique

We fell in love with this house because of the backyard space. We created a private space in our back yard to enjoy when we need to unwind. It makes us feel like we are in the country in the city. We like to entertain and having friends and family over to enjoy the space with us.

Fantastic place to stay in Brooklyn!

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was beautiful, had so many special touches from the toiletries provided to the umbrellas, raincoats and maps of the city! Carole and Bev were such greats hosts. Very helpful from the first e-mail and they made sure our stay was perfect! The apartment is less than 10 minutes away from the G train and the B38 bus stops directly in front. Easy to get into Manhattan but also a great location for exploring the rest of Brooklyn. Would highly recommend this property! Thank you Carole and Bev for such a great experience!

Owner's Response: Your welcome! Hope you both had a safe trip back home. We are happy you found the apartment close to transportation. The B38 bus is so convenient, right outside the house, that I sometimes forget the G train is a just ten minute walk!
You both are lovely together and we DO hope you come back again on your next trip to New York. All the best!

Exceptional Accommodation

  • 5 of 5
As a Hospitality and Tourism professional, I was extremely satisfied with the accommodation and services provided by Carol and Beverly, this property can rival ANY 5 star hotel/resort the world over, in terms of comfort and amenities provided. Apart from the CLEAN spacious, tastefully decorated apartment, included in the rental were a comfortable king size bed, flat screen TV, Roku, free WIFI, snacks, drinks just to name a few.

Carol and Beverly were gracious hosts and made every effort to provide for the traveller, which definitely met and exceeded our expectations. Upon arrival they were aware that my family and I had a long trip to New York, so without hesitation hot dinner was provided for us and likewise for our departure, sandwiches were supplied.

The neighbourhood is safe and the apartment is conveniently located close to a grocery store, Chinese take out (good food) and steps away from the bus stop for easy access to downtown Brooklyn, the shopping area (Fulton Street Mall and Atlantic Mall) and the many wonderful sights Brooklyn has to offer.

I therefore hold no reservation in recommending this rental to family and friends, you would definitely get a lot more for what you pay. When next we are in New York this rental will definitely be our FIRST CHOICE.

Extremely Satisfied Guest

Beautiful apartment with amazing service

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was immaculate! The design and layout were great--all the details were perfect, right down to the beautiful artwork. It was a very spacious studio and it was very clean. Everything was in perfect condition, as if it was brand new. The bed was super comfy. The greatest strength of the place though was the thoughtfulness of the owners. I have never stayed at a VRBO that has been so well equipped. The kitchen had everything you need, from dishes, to good quality pots and pans, to appliances. They also had fresh fruit, a variety of snacks, and cold drinks ready in the kitchen for weary travellers. The bathroom was equally well stocked with amenities in case you had forgotten anything, from toothpaste to cotton swabs. The owners made it very clear that they were available if you needed anything at all. They very kindly photocopied a map of the citi bike stops for me, enlarged it to a usable size, and taped it all together on sturdy paper.
The neighborhood is still up-and-coming, but is pretty central. Don't miss a visit to Scratch bread.
Thank you Bev and Carol for an outstanding stay! You deserve a customer service award and I hope you get the best clients ever.

We loved it!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I have been home (Utah) for about 2 hours, returning from Carole & Beverly's and am still wishing I was there. There home is fantastic; so clean, fully stocked and accommodating and beautifully decorated. Loved it. I was there to drop my daughter off at college (Pratt Institute) and the ladies were so wonderful and helpful in their ideas and directions to everything we needed. On the one nearest corner is Rocco's Pizza, excellent (we ordered the White pizza with spinach and broccoli) and on the opposite corner is Chinese food. Also great, we just ordered way too much for two people. I am so happy to know that these accommodations are perfectly located to my daughters school, let alone the proximity to the buses and subway. I have been lucky enough in my life to have traveled extensively and this is along with the best and most comfortable places I have ever stayed. I truly plan to return and highly recommend to all. EXCELLENT work ladies. Thank you for everything.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the compliments! You have a kind and generous spirit.
Pratt (my alma mater) is a wonderful institution and your daughter will excel there. As it is only about ten blocks from us, Pratt has defined the neighborhood. There are plenty artists and musicians moving in and around our neighborhood giving it a great vibe. I am so glad you got to explore our local eateries, and my goodness, that WAS plenty, plenty food you ordered! LOL! Thanks for staying with us and welcome back anytime. So glad to have met you!

Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5
This is our first time staying in a homeaway apartment in NY and we couldn't be happier. The apartment was beautiful, exactly as you see in the pictures. Carole and Beverly are so helpful with any questions. We traveled with our 2 kids 8 and 10 years old, there was plenty of room. We had specific plans to visit Coney Island, The Statue of Liberty and The 9/11 memorial. We were able to get to all without any problem by bus and subway. Best of all were the little touches in the apartment, snacks, coffee and cold drinks in the fridge on our arrival, We loved it..

Owner's Response: Hello to you and the girls! You certainly got a lot in on your stay from one end of Brooklyn to the other and then into Manhattan too! Wow! I'm happy you found the transportation convenient. The bus being right on our corner is such a pleasant ride downtown to the express train station and the ride is shorter than walking to the nearest train. We are glad you enjoyed the snacks. I'm happy you were able to park on our street, as well with no troubles. Please visit us again on your next trip. Thanks for staying with us!

We are located in the up and coming section of Brooklyn in historic Bedford Stuyvesant. Our home is right on DeKalb Avenue just steps away from the B38 bus to Downtown Brooklyn. It's a ten minute bus ride to a strip of fantastic restaurants, Fort Greene Park, the Barclay Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets and the venue for concerts and BAM. Take a stroll through Pratt Institute's Sculpture Garden which is only 7 minutes away by bus. Have a slice of Juniors famous cheesecake only 15 minutes away by bus, before you connect to the B,Q, N or R train to New York City right on the corner of Juniors. Stroll through the mall near Barclay Center where you will find stores such as Target, Marshalls, Uniqlo and DSW. Or explore the newly reorganized and rapidly changing Fulton Mall near Juniors in which you will find Macys, Aeropostale, Aldo, American Apparel, Armani Exchange, Banana Republic,Brooklyn Industries to name a few. We are very close to the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Park where you will find the most spectacular views of NYC between 2 bridges. Brooklyn Bridge Park offers free outdoor movies in the summer with the NYC skyline as a backdrop, Beach Volleyball courts, Kayacking,

and the famous Janes Carousel where, for 2 dollars, young or old, you will enjoy this. There are fun parks within the park for children and a scenic bike path. Food festivals are a regular attraction at this park. Citibikes are available a few blocks from us, where you can rent a bike and use the bike lanes made available, we will supply maps. Prospect Park is also nearby Grand Army Plaza and the Brooklyn Public Library and the Brooklyn Museum and the Zoo. A large green market takes place during the summer at the edge of Prospect Park and also every Saturday at Fort Greene Park. Many farmers from upstate New York attend these markets as well as every Wednesday near Union Square Manhattan, a short ride on the D train.

There are a number of public parks and a public pool (Kosciuszko Pool) which is 3 blocks from our house. There is so much to do in Brooklyn, so many restaurants and bars near our home and in the nearby Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. We are centrally located and a very easy commute to all attractions.

You will have a great time and we will help you navigate your way around town. We are gay friendly and straight friendly. Family with children welcome!
