Wonderful visit to Brooklyn

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.

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.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Ellen and Al's place twice now and have been extremely pleased both times!

The apartment is on a remarkable quiet street, is secure and comfortable, and Ellen and Al could not be nicer. (On this trip we drove into the city and Ellen used her car to save an open parking spot for us right in front of the building!)

The subway station is a short walk away and there is a really nice grocery store on that same corner.

We visit New York City often and I will always check to see if this place is available on any future trips. Never a disappointment!

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.
