A jewel in the heart of Brooklyn

My wife and I decided on Saturday morning to get out of town and drive to NY. After a quick look on VRBO we instantly fell in love with The Brooklyn Mansion. Even with just short notice the owner was able to work out the details with us and even accommodate a couple of special requests! Often the pictures and descriptions of rental properties do not really reflect the property but in this case they most certainly did! The house was a mixture of the best of both old and new. We had all the charm and beauty of a heritage property with all the comfort and convenience of newly built home! The location was perfect, a short walk to the subway and from there a very short ride into Manhattan. We never felt unsafe in the neighborhood despite getting home late a couple of times and although the block is vibrant and busy, our sleep was never disturbed by noise. Everything was clean and shiny and you could tell that the owners take pride in their property. Everything was comfortable, the shower was great, lot's of water pressure and tons of hot water! My kids loved the tv and board games and we loved the fantastic kitchen and wonderful beds. The owners were always available to answer questions or give suggestions but never in the way. Before we had kids we would stay with friends or at hotels when we visited the city...now we have a new home in NYC! You can't beat the price or the experience!
