Guestbook comments from the owner
The location was perfect for us and found the apartment very comfortable, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Many thanks for your help with the couple of questions we had - it was the first time I had every booked accommodation outside of New Zealand and was very pleased with the out-come.



Many, many thanks for making our complete holiday experience in New York so wonderful.

WE'RE SOLD ON BROOKLYN

We're sold on Brooklyn
  • 5 of 5
After staying in too many overpriced dumps in Manhattan, we finally made the decision to try Brooklyn. And it certainly was the right decision. Terrace Tower in Park Slope is a very well maintained building with spacious, generously supplied apartments in a friendly neighbourhood. All the one bedrooms were booked when we contacted Roger so he offered us his remaining 2 bedroom unit at a discounted price. At the end of happy days in either Brooklyn or Manhattan, we came "home" and these apartments feel like home. Our kitchen was well stocked with all types of cooking utensils and even butter, oil, spices and jam. Ample towels, soap, laundry detergent (for the on-site laundry) and shampoo. Roger and staff are present, helpful and friendly. We've never experienced such service, respect and pride in rental accommodations for tourists.
Terrace Tower is just a few blocks from an entrance to the subway to Brooklyn and Manhattan and walking distance to grocery stores and restaurants. We highly recommend these apartments and we know we'll be returning, too.

Owner's Response: Thank you. It was a pleasure to have you and hope we see you again.

We try hard to make this a real "home away" experience and we are very proud of our product and of the neighborhood that we are fortunate enough to be in. The location is convenient to mass transit, and also to all the wonderful cultural landmarks and activities that Brooklyn itself has to offer.

BROOKLYN APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
I have just returned from my 3rd stay in Terrace Tower, 11th Ave, Brooklyn. The 1st time was Oct 2010, a beautiful time of the year here when the trees lining the avenues are vibrant and the front stoops are decorated with pumpkins and lanterns; the 2nd time was during the heat of this summer; the 3rd an unplanned, extended stay caused by Hurricane Irene. Fortunately, Roger, the owner, had an apartment free and at just two hours' notice, very oblingingly accommodated 4 stranded travellers! All 3 apartments, the 1-bedded ones and the 2-bedded one are very well equipped. Pans, crockery, cutlery, comfortables beds and counches, a large fridge, TV, CD players are very much needed air conditioning help to make us feel at home in this beautiful and prestigious part of Brooklyn, where we never felt like tourists. Little touches like soap and individual sets of towels, napkins and even soap powder and washing up liquid are very appreciated. The laundry room is superb. Being on site, Roger is often available and very friendly and amenable. He always responded immediately to any emails I sent. The location couldn't be better. It is safe and Park Slope has been voted Brooklyn's No.1 place to live and just 5 minutes from the F train, I don't understand why anyone would wish to stay in an anonymous, expensive Manhattan hotel, when you can live amongst the residents of the iconic brownstones of Brooklyn. The subway easily takes you to Manhattan, Queens, Coney Island or Williamsburg. Buses are nearby to get to Red Hook to have a famous key lime pie. It's easy to reach both JFK or La Guardia. There is no need for taxis. There are many amenities close by- a supermarket immediately across the road, Rhythm & Booze, a friendly local pub and Prospect Ave, 7th Ave and 5th Ave will leave you spoilt for choice for restaurants and other shopping treats. I recommend Le P'tit Paris and Couleurs Cafe on 7th Ave and Canaille and The Chocolate Room on 5th Ave. Prospect Park, Brooklyn's answer to Central Park is at the end of the street and the Botanic Gardens is a delightful place to see flowers, birds and butterflies. I am already wondering when I can come again and even after 3 visits there are still places I have yet to see in Brooklyn. I cannot recommend these apartments highly enough and I would not stay anywhere else in New York.

A GREAT FIND

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was as described and bigger than it looked on the pictures. It was very clean and well maintained. Roger was helpful and flexible about our departure time. The supermarket opposite the apartments was convenient, opened long hours and well stocked. The area immediately surrounding the block felt very safe. We felt it was great value for money! Thanks Roger - we had a wonderful week!

GREAT BROOKLYN BASE FOR FAMILY HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
I was really nervous booking a place over the Internet so it was such a relief to find that not only did the apartment actually exist (!), but it was just as it was described on the website.

We rented the 2 bedroom apartment for our family of 4. It was perfect - clean and tidy, well located ( having the supermarket across the road was great) and in such a lovely neighborhood! We felt really safe walking home from the subway at night (about 7 or 8 mins walk) and having Prospect Park up the road was lovely too.

The apartment was really comfortable and there was plenty of space to unwind after the craziness that is Manhattan. In fact some days my kids didn't want to leave!

Roger, the landlord, was very helpful and it was good to know he was around in case anything went wong (it didn't!)

Like the other reviewer, I'd also recommend it as a great value option for a family visiting NYC.

TERRIFIC VALUE FOR MONEY !

  • 5 of 5
The apartment ticked every box for my wife and I. It is in a safe and quiet part of Brooklyn, less than five minutes from the nearest subway station. Transfer to the middle of Manhattan in around 30 minutes for all the tourist sights there.
The apartment itself was spacious, clean, quiet and most importantly Roger, the owner, was on site and was very helpful when required.
A wonderfully stocked supermarket is just across the street which is very convenient and Prospect Park less than a five minute walk and well worth a stroll around.
If we ever visit New York again I would have no hesitation in renting this apartment again and would recommend others to do so if they like to spend their vacation time away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan but within an easy 30 minute subway ride.

APPARTEMENT TRÈS CONFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
J'apréhendais un peu de réserver un appartement par internet vu les arnaques, mais tout s'est très bien passé. Les propriétaires nous avaient envoyé par mail une carte avec l'adresse à donner au chauffeur de taxi pour notre arrivée de l'aéroport. Le propriétaire est accueillant, il y a tout ce qu'il faut dans l'appartement (draps, serviettes, sel poivre, huille vinaigre...). Certes il faut marcher 10 min pour arriver à la station de métro la plus proche, mais vu les tarifs nettement plus bas que manatthan, cela vaut le coup. Un supermarché se trouve de l'autre côté de la rue. Bref si nous retournons à New York, nous retournerons au même endroit !
