Wonderful visit to Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

Super clean. Convenient to subway. Interesting neighborhood with lots of new restaurants. Friendly and helpful hosts. Quiet and safe location. After many stays, hosts seem like old friends. Look forward to our next visit to Brooklyn.

Awesome apartment in Brooklyn!

  • 5 of 5

Such a nice apartment! Very clean and updated! And super comfy. The big windows overlooking the front of the house are perfect. Close to market and subway station they are at the end of the block. Ellen really goes out of her way to make the stay very welcoming and warm. She recommended Hamilton’s restaurant and we loved it! If you get a chance stop by delicious breakfast!

Convenient Brooklyn Apt.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Brooklyn visiting our son and family. Ellen and Albert's Brooklyn apartment was clean and bright and offered a convenient location to subway and grocery store. We highly recommend this quiet neighborhood retreat when visiting NYC.

Friendly and comfortable stay in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

We found this apartment to be just right for our recent stay in Brooklyn. The grocery store and subway stop was close and convenient to get into Manhattan. The apartment is big, clean, the kitchen is well stocked and the washer/dryer came in very handy. Ellen and Albert were kind and helpful.

A short walk to restaurants and the Steeplechase Coffee Shop.

Absolutely wonderful! Great apartment, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Ellen and Albert for allowing our family to stay at your wonderful apartment. Anyone looking to make a trip to New York should consider this apartment. It is clean, comfortable, well stocked and has great hosts. It is close to the subway station and the hosts can provide expert travel and sightseeing directions. We hope to travel to NY again in the next few years and will definitely plan to stay at this apartment again.
