A Shaker Hymn of simplicty, comfort and good taste

  • 5 of 5

Kermit and Azadeh have worked very hard to create a warm and welcoming apartment that made our nine day visit to New York a delight. They renovated this hundred year old apartment into a Shaker hymn of simplicity, comfort and good taste. It was a wonderful place to return to after a long hard day crammed with visiting museums, stores and some 10,000 people on the subways. The kitchen is spacious and well appointed and there are plentiful closets. Kermit thoughtfully installed a ceiling light in the huge shower in the updated bathroom. The dining room has a long refectory table, so you can spread out the treasures that you acquired during the day and admire them while eating dinner.

There is a corner grocery store a block from the apartment, and a supermarket two blocks away. There is a lovely coffee shop three blocks away, which became our daily stop on the way to the subway station, which is 5 blocks from the apartment. Kermit and Azadeh live two doors down, so they were always available to help.

We highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a less expensive alternative to the pricey Manhattan rentals. Our thanks to Kermit and Azadeh for helping to make our vacation the best one ever!!!!

Great location to our family, easy to get to JFK and into the city. We absolutely loved this place and would definitely stay here again. Everything was perfect. My only complaint was the trundle bed was very hard. I hate to even say anything, but thought you'd want to know. The decor is amazing and so nice to have a place to do wash too.

Perfect for our visitors

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome. It looked just as it did in the photos. I wish it was my apartment! The one thing I would mention is that the two bedrooms are connected and if you are in the corner bedroom you either have to walk through the master bedroom or the (external) hallway to get to the bathroom or rest of the apartment. This is a typical railroad style in NYC and I may have just overlooked it in the description. Anyway, it worked fine for us and the in laws really got to know each other!

Great apartment, kid-friendly and clean

  • 5 of 5

First of all the information and attention we received from the host prior to our trip made us look forward to it even more. On our way in the car we were planning dinner that night using the elaborate neighborhood map and amenities description (we ended up going to Union Pizza Works, which was AMAZING). Street parking space close to the apt was easy to find.

But now the apartment itself. Very spacious, stocked with everything we might have asked for. Beds and shower were comfortable and, most important, the whole house was spotless. Also important with little kids (5 and 3): simple, sturdy furniture, tasteful decorations and not too cluttered (i.e. nothing for our kids to break :) Easy walk to subway, we were in UES within an hour door-to-door. There was also a good tip about the NY ferry system in the neighborhood guide - take the subway to Bedford Ave and you can enjoy the city above ground for only $2.75 per adult. We had a great weekend and would come back to this apt in a heartbeat.

Pictures Of Aparment Accurate

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very nice and spacious and tastefully furnished and met our expectations. There was a computer which was a nice addition but unfortunately it was not working. The owner very nicely came and tried to fix it himself. But that was an added and unexpected bonus anyway. The only remark I have is for older people and that is the walk to the DeKalb subway station is quite a long walk. The little grocery two blocks away however was very handy. A very nice stay for a very reasonable price overall. Incidentally we used Uber on occasion and they were extremely prompt in arriving.

Car: not necessary

Straddling the neighborhoods of Bushwick, Brooklyn and Ridgewood, Queens, the apartment is 5 blocks away from the Dekalb Street 'L' train station in Brooklyn��one of the best subway lines in the city. Union Square, the heart of downtown Manhattan, is only 15 minutes away via a direct subway ride; Williamsburg, Brooklyn's stylish boutiques, bars and restaurants are only a 7 minute train ride away.

Ours is a quieter, more residential neighborhood, but it is in an exciting stage of growth. In the last 5 years there has been a huge influx of artists and creatives in our immediate area. As a result, there is now a solid (and rapidly growing) number of stylish cafes, restaurants, wine bars, art galleries, yoga studios, and a great 24-hour gourmet/organic grocery store all within a 10-12 minute walk from the apartment. There are also local Italian bakeries, Halal butcher shops, Equadorian bodegas, Polish food markets and the best tasting Mexican tamales we've ever come across. All relevant information can be found in our Guest Welcome binder in the apartment and we hope that you will explore these local gems during your visit.
