Great choice!

  • 5 of 5
As lodging proprietors ourselves, my husband and I know the effort required to make a rental truly welcoming. So we were delighted to find that our host Reno had succeeded beautifully in this regard with this apartment. The quality of furniture, bedding and kitchenware is high, and the Victorian restoration is charming. During our stay we walked and took the subway, going into Manhattan often to attend events and sightsee. Reno was very helpful with information and tips. And we second his suggestion for dinner at Saraghina restaurant a few blocks away. Delicious food, great ambiance and attentive service.

WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
The house is clean and very quiet. The neighbourhood is safe and people on the street were very kind. The owner is very welcoming.

Next time we will visit NYC, we will try to stay at the same place! And, we will recommend this property to all of our friends, of course!

ENJOYABLE THREE MONTHS IN BED-STUY

  • 5 of 5
We are a couple from Barcelona who have lived for three months (March to June 2014) in this house of Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. Preliminary internet contact with their owners were OK, and our stay in this house has been very nice. We felt at home from the first week, we have not had a single problem. The House is decorated in a Victorian style and for us has been very comfortable and cozy. The kitchen and all the equipment of the house has everything you need for a good stay. Dealing with the owners was delicious, respecting at all times the necessary privacy. They helped us when we require it, are kind, friendly and discreet.
As for the neighborhood is very quiet. It’s well connected to Manhattan. We had not any setbacks when we returned home late, nor any problems in the neighborhood to buy everything necessary for our daily maintenance. There are shops, pharmacies, supermarkets,.... around the Subway.
Just tell you than if we return to New York, we will return to this house. Thanks for everything.

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!!

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED this house! We have stayed in many properties in the NYC area and this one is our favorite. It was a comfortable amount of space for our group of 3, it is beautifully decorated, and the host was gracious and welcoming. The neighborhood felt safe, even when we walked home from the train at 3:00am on Halloween! There are small markets and a few excellent and well priced restaurants nearby. The train is just a few blocks walk, and having a full kitchen is such a luxury.

Reno was very helpful with answering questions and providing information before we arrived and made us feel very at home when we got there. We actually only ever saw him twice, once at arrival and once before he left for the weekend. The house very much gave a glance back to a more genteel and gracious old New York.

We had also never stayed in Brooklyn before and discovered that Brooklyn Bridge Park is one of the most beautiful spots to be found in NYC. There are some lesser known and much less crowded museums that were also excellent, and getting into Manhattan took only about half an hour from the time we left the house.

Highly, highly, HIGHLY recommended!

Our rental is located in the eastern end of the famous historic brownstone townhouse neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant in Brooklyn.

The subway ride to lower Manhattan is about 20 minutes and to midtown about 45 minutes.

Beautiful Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum, The Brooklyn Children's Museum and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden are all approximately 20 minutes by bike or train ride. The hip world of Williamsburg is just 2 kilometers to the west, and the pleasant shopping atmosphere of Park Slope is 2 kilometers to the south. Brooklyn's largest antiques district is a short subway ride away on Atlantic Avenue. The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) is also not far, for theatre, avant garde dance, performance art and various films. The Brooklyn Flea market is a great way to spend a weekend morning, outdoors in warmer months and indoors in winter.

A new restaurant / coffee place with amazing doughnuts just opened on Patchen Avenue called Manny's. http://www.brownstoner.com/blog/2012/10/mannys-restaurant-opens-in-bed-stuy/

A block beyond that is another coffee house called Liquid Oz, http://www.liquid-oz.com/

Two wonderful Italian restaurants are nicely walkable:

Saraghina offers breakfast, lunch and dinner:

http://www.saraghinabrooklyn.com/

They serve fantastic thin-crust pizza made in a wood-fired oven, delicious side dishes, a great weekend brunch, and they have a secluded garden seating area in summertime.

Celestino is all about amazing Mediterranean seafood. Check out the beautiful atmosphere in this slideshow: http://newyork.grubstreet.com/2011/12/celestino_restaurant_slideshow.html

Also, the food of the American South is the specialty at Peaches. http://peachesbrooklyn.com/

Other restaurants on the western edge of the Bedford Stuyvesant district include Alice's Arbor:

and Do or Dine:

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/14/dining/reviews/do-or-dine-nyc-restaurant-review.html

There are two neighborhood parks nearby, Saratoga Park and Fulton Park. And this part of Bedford-Stuyvesant is a treasure for anyone interested in strolling along seemingly endless blocks of very intact late 19th century architecture.
