Lovely home in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful father and son vacation in New York. The Brooklyn home was cosy and clean, a little bit rough, but perfect for us, for two Finnish artists. We just loved it. The stores were near and it was easy to get to Manhattan with the subway and the bus. Lloyd was so friendly and guided us in the nice neighborhood. We agreed most of the reviews and will recommend this place for everyone. We'll be back for sure to Lloyd's nice family.

The place was as described.

Only 5 minutes to the subway by foot. the block is very quiet.

Very nice owner, we felt welcomed. Gave us advice about the town on arrival and was helpful during the stay.

Very good quality-price.

No doubt, I would recommend it to friends.

Very pleasant apartment, lovely neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Brooklyn. BedStuy is a lovely neighbourhood, very safe, with a small-town feel to it and very friendly locals. Complementary breakfast at Breadstuy was amazing, genuine homemade food and miles better than anything you'd get in a restaurant. Saraghina, a few blocks away on Halsey Street is one of the best pizzerias in NYC - highly recommended.

Apartment is cosy and you can really feel like a New Yorker staying there. Only slight quibble is with the bathroom which is perhaps a little antiquated by our European standards. However everything is clean.

Subway on Utica Av is very convenient and a fast and safe way to get into Manhattan.

All in all a very authentic and excellent value place to spend your holiday in NYC.

Loved our time in Brooklyn!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 LOVED our time in Brooklyn. Lloyd and his family were great hosts, and made us feel right at home. We were given the great tour of the neighborhood, and felt at ease getting around. The subway is very close and the ride to Manhattan was quick and easy. The apartment was clean and just right for a good nights sleep. Breakfast at Lloyd's shop Bread Stuy was delicious, and the staff was great! Better than we could have ever gotten in a hotel for this price. We look forward to staying there again!

There's no place like HOME

  • 3 of 5

I'd like to start off by saying that Lloyd was a very fun & friendly owner who means well, but since this review is not about the owner, I'm going to be honest since that's what every vacationer deserves.

When we initially pulled up to the property, the area was very quiet & well maintained. The odd thing is that the picture of the front steps are of their neighbors? The unit is on the THIRD floor, so this will not be suitable for anyone who may have difficultiies wakling up/down steep squeaky stairs.

The pictures of the unit are when it was FIRST upgraded (years ago?). We could see dust on everything from the fan to the books right when we walked in. When we opened the sofa couch in the living room (not for adults), we found other peoples belongings covered with dust.

The main room was very spacious, but there are NO doors & the second "room" is literally a walk-in closet closed off with a curtain. There is NO PRIVACY.

The bathroom was the most misleading picture of them all. The shower head is installed too low & don't even try to flush the toilet while taking a shower unless you want to be burned.

The kitchen is small, but definately do-able. We cooked, but had to scrub pans clean before doing so. The washer washes, but does not dry. We had to hang our clothes to dry.

Bring house slippers because there is no a mop in the unit or your socks will be at work. Do not leave any food out or you will have unwanted guests. 0_o

The subway is 3 blocks (equivalent to 6 standard blocks) away where you'll find local stores, parks & friendly people!

Other than having no hot water or heat on our last night & a cold room from airing the horrendous gas smell out, it was just a roof over our head to visit NY. I'd definately suggest to eat at Peaches that is located next to Lloyd's awesome Bread Stuy Cafe. The banana bread there is AMAZING & the staff was very friendly.

The unit has everything that a home would need including direct tv, a shopping cart & stroller, but if the cleaning fee was used properly this review would have been alot easier on the ears.
