|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
This private apartment is situated in the section of Bedford Stuyvesant that is landmarked and convenient to Manhattan. It is truly a 5-7 minute walk to the A train which is an express subway to/from Manhattan and JFK airport. The apartment is located on the second floor of a nearly 150 year old renovated townhouse. Marble mantles, original hardwood floors and mouldings remain while the kitchen and bath have been updated with a vintage, modern aesthetic. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and there are high ceilings throughout this sunlit space. The furniture, textiles and art were carefully chosen to enhance the clean, comfortable environment.

Owner Occupied: We welcome you to the neighborhood and into our home! A New Yorker is downstairs, at your disposal for tourist information and any questions that may arise during your stay. Check in/out are flexible within reason. (Owner lives in one of the apartments in the building which is completely separate from the guest apartment). This is a non smoking building.
I work in Brooklyn real estate and I enjoy getting to know people from all over the world. I feel fortunate to be able to share my beautiful home & neighborhood with my guests. I particularly love that my daughter Ruby, at age 3, is able to meet so many interesting people. She gets very excited when new guests arrive and often presents them with a drawling or shows them a new dance she has learned.
Owner/Manager purchased this apartment in 2009
As Southern transplants, my husband & I knew we wanted to make our home in a neighborhood with a strong sense of community, an interesting history and a culturally diverse population. Our home was built in 1864, it is located on one of the loveliest blocks in the area. Inside the apartment you will find unique furnishings I've collected over the years and photos given to me by friends in the NYC artist community.
A trip to New York should be pleasantly unforgettable. With my guidance, I can save my guests time, money and I hope make the experience less intimidating. Since I live in the building traveling stress is decreased - I personally welcome my guests upon arrival and make myself available for any questions.
This apartment is just perfect. Its exactly how it is in the photos on the web site. Its set in a beautiful brownstone in Brooklyn. We had the middle floor to ourselves, with the owner on the top floor and a permanent tenant on the bottom. It was great to have the space. The apartment was spotlessly clean with all the amenities of home. We just loved Brooklyn. The neighbourhood was very safe and the locals very friendly to us. All the fall leaves were out and it was so beautiful to see this. The apartment was in a wide quiet street, 5 minutes from Utica subway station, a laundry and a supermarket 1 block away. It was about 20 minutes by subway into NYC. I highly recommend this place if you want space, quiet, but still being close to the city. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Ashley for providing great accommondation
Clean spacious apartment on a quiet street in Brooklyn. A half hour by cab to JFK. A five minute walk to the Utica Street subway station and 20 minutes on the A line to Manhattan. Excellent neighborhood coffee shops and cafes. Can't beat it for a trip to NYC.
My husband and I stayed at the apartment for two weeks in September. Being our first time to New York, we knew the trip would be great, but it was amazing! Season was a great host, knowledgeable and considerate. The apartment was clean and quiet, fully equipped with everything we required. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the stoop and visiting with the local community. The proximity of the subway enabled us to see 4 of the 5 boroughs of New York with ease. We recommend this property highly, for a short or long stay, truly a home away from home. My only regret is that we didn't stay for a month!

We stayed here for 6 nights, and it was perfect in all our needs. Our friends were getting married in NYC and
I was greeted by Ashley and her very exuberant daughter who showed me around the whole apartment. Ashley is very knowledgeable of the local area, bars, restaurants and local taxis, a great host.
The apartment, it was like being at home away from home, all the amenities needed and catered for. Great location, many bars and restaurants nearby, everyone really friendly, shops nearby to buy coffee and pancake mix!
The tube station is a 5 minute walk from the apartment, giving access to the whole of NYC, felt really safe, and even returning from Manhatten at 2.30am!
We used the apartment as a base to explore NYC; I would highly recommend this apartment to explore, great price (compared to hotels), and a great location. I would stay here again.

This Vacation rental Highly exceeded our expectations without exceeding our budget. The Apartment was beautifully stocked with Many Towels, Fully Equipped Kitchen, A desk filled with maps, brochures and local information. My family of 5 loved our NY experience. Try Peaches(around corner) and Sarahginas Pizza(2blocks North) restaurants. We traveled everywhere by nearby subway and kept our van parked on the street. Thanks you so much for making our vacation so fantastic the money we saved on lodgings gave us the budget to explore so much of NYC!!
We stayed in this rental for 5 nights, and it was absolutely perfect for us.
I took my mom to New York City for her birthday. The property was just as pictured, very clean, relatively quiet, and had everything we could have needed (oven, fridge, toiletries, maps, suggestions...so much more.) The bed was very comfortable, and the apartment has a ton of natural light, which was great.
The hosts were friendly, helpful, and accommodating (we missed a connection and arrived a day late...they rescheduled to meet us at the property for our new time of arrival.)
The rental is close to locations to purchase a Metro Card, grocery stores, restaurants, and is very close to the Subway and bus stops.
If I travel to NYC again, I would hope that is rental is available, as it made for a perfect stay.

Located in the historic Stuyvesant Heights section of Bedford Stuyvesant, on one of the most coveted blocks in the area, the apartment is surrounded by well kept brownstones and two beautiful churches. Bed Stuy is centrally located, bordering other popular Brooklyn neighborhoods such as Williamsburg, Clinton Hill, Prospect Heights, and Bushwick. Travel throughout the five boroughs is very fast with the A express or C local trains, just 2.5 blocks from your vacation home. (There is a closer subway entrance in Fulton Park, which is NOT shown on this map.) Lower Manhattan, Prospect Park, Brooklyn Museum & Botanical Gardens are all about 20 minutes of train travel. Times Square is 35 minutes away and multiple beaches can be reached within 45 minutes. Choose the bus (at the corner) or a train for a jaunt to Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Bushwick points of interest. Within three blocks of the apartment there are wonderful restaurants like Peaches & Saraghina, laundromats, coffee shops, grocery stores, a wine bar, a bike shop, a library, parks and playgrounds.
