Truly a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent one week in this wonderful apartment. It is decorated so nicely that we felt at home immediately.

If NYC didn't have so much to offer, we'd have spend more time inside - so don't be afraid of rainy days on your visit.

Herkimer St is not the most beautiful in the area, but what really counts is the fact that we were always pleased to come home to this cozy place after a long and tiring day in the 5 boroughs.

Perfect place for us....clean and spacious.

This property is an older building and kept up. We had all we needed and it really is 1/2 a block from the subway. Unfortunately never got to meet the owners but talked to Cheryl on the phone. Very nice and helpful!

Appartement conforme à la description avec des aspects positifs.

  • 4 of 5

L’appartement est 2 niveaux au-dessus de la rue, accessible par un escalier. Il est indépendant des propriétaires. Il était très propre et correctement équipé en ustensiles de cuisine, en serviettes de toilette et en vaisselle. Il n’y a pas de lave-vaisselle.

Les hôtes sont discrets et très « cool »: nous ne les avons vu qu'à l'arrivée et ils nous ont fait confiance pour le départ.

Le quartier est familial bien qu’animé et assez bruyant (sirènes de pompiers, train), mais cela est habituel à NY.

Il n’y a aucun problème d’approvisionnement, car un grand nombre de « delis » sont proches et ouverts 24/7 : Nous avons pu prendre nos petits déjeuners sans nous soucier de faire des réserves d’alimentation à l’avance.

La station de métro de la ligne C, qui traverse Manhattan du nord au sud, est à 2 minutes à pied : c’est l’atout majeur de cet appartement.

Finalement, le rapport agrément/prix est positif.

A great, comfortable apartment with friendly family and neighbors!

  • 5 of 5

We were planning last minute trip to New York. With "teenage" children and a dog, we needed a place with enough space. This two bedroom was great! Cheryl and her family were amazingly accommodating. She helped us navigate the subway system… Which was around the corner, literally! She also recommended a few tourist attractions, and guided us to a local zoo after hearing my daughters love of animals.

We appreciated all the amenities in the apartment. The kitchen was well equipped so we were able to prepare meals on the nights we didn't want to go out.

We were planning to leave when a massive snowstorm hit New York City. Cheryl was gracious in making arrangement with us to stay an additional day. After the snow stopped, her family even offered to help us dig your car out before we left. That goes way beyond any expectations!! While we had complete privacy, the hospitality she and her family showed us made it like we were visiting friends in New York… rather than merely tourists of the city.

We will definitely stay again in our next trip. Thank you Cheryl for great visit to Brooklyn!
