Perfect location after a long day in the city!

  • 5 of 5

The opportunity we had to stay at this wonderful location could not have been more perfect! The accommodations are absolutely perfect, the rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. The entire stay was a comfortable respite after a long day in the city and a crazy drive from Manhattan to Brooklyn. Fortunately for us, staying in this very special spot was a great way to finally unwind and relax before taking on the next day. Our only regret is we were unable to stay later and enjoy such an accommodating stay longer. Thank you!!!!

Magnifique appartement et hôtes formidables.

  • 5 of 5

En vacances pour 15 jours à NYC, j'ai séjourné chez Ellen et Al avec mon époux et notre fils de 17 ans. Le séjour fut très agréable. L'appartement est spacieux, très joliment décoré et fort bien équipé. Il est situé dans une petite rue très calme et un quartier familial. Il faut 45 minutes pour gagner Midtown en métro (station très proche de l'appartement). Nous avons aussi beaucoup apprécié l'accueil très chaleureux d'Ellen et Al, toujours disponibles pour nous venir en aide. Nous recommandons vivement cette location qui est tout simplement formidable et nous remercions vivement Ellen et Al.

Nice Apartment in a nice neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very nice. Ellen and Al did a very good job having us there.

There is a nice supermarket (FoodTown) nearby, they also sell organic food.

Traveling to Manhattan with the "F" line takes about 30 to 45 minutes.

Taxi to the Airport takes 40 mins and costs about 35$ plus tip.

We will be back. :-)

--- Now for german readers: ---

Ellen und Al sind sehr nette Vermieter. Das Apartment ist super ausgestattet und es macht Spaß da zu wohnen.

Der Supermarkt um die Ecke verkauft auch Bio-Lebensmittel und ist im Allgemeinen gut sortiert.

Mit der "F" Linie braucht man ca. 30-45 Minuten bis Manhattan. Zum Flughafen ca. eine Stunde. Das Taxi zum Airport kostet 35$ plus Trinkgeld und braucht 40 Minuten. Wir kommen wieder. :-)

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place! It was very clean and comfortable. Owner is helpful and friendly. It has all the amenities you will need and it's close to the subway and a very nice grocery store. We felt safe in the quiet neighborhood. We would love to stay here again soon and have already recommended it to friends.

Perfect place to explore the Big Apple

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spotless and clean, quiet and in a nice neighboorhood, just a few steps away from subway and supermarket. There is a good bed as well which is hard to find when you´re abroad and travelling. The owners are very friendly and helpfull, who make sure you just feel at home. They were so kind to make sure we even had cold juice, milk and water in the fridge when we arrived, because when we arrived NY was still in the heatwave. They really thought of everything ! Thank you for that, dear hosts.

This IS the perfect spot to start exploring NY and still have peace and quiet. A holiday-home with all the facilities you have back home.

A+ !
