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!!!!

This is an adorable apartment decorated in a vintage-modern style. The dining room has a huge barnwood-style table that we loved. It worked perfectly for our family of five. Super clean. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

I absolutely loved this space. The design, layout, and overall feel was wonderful. It felt just like home. I loved that there were plenty of soft towels, and they really took great care of the attention to detail in providing a true sense of cleanliness. The only thing that didn't totally knock my socks off was that the mattresses were quite stiff and the pillows quite flat. I like my bed very soft, so this could really just be a matter of opinion, but it was not very comfortable for me (although the linens were wonderful!). The property manager made sure we had all the information we needed and was prompt to reply. As a big fan of convenience/efficiency the one check-in e-mail I received was all I needed to get in, no trying to schedule picking up keys or worrying about timing to meet someone to let us in/being possibly late to meet them which I LOVED. I would definitely book again (with memory pad and pillows in tow :-)

Excellent property

  • 4 of 5

Looking to save money while visiting NYC? Get out of Manhattan and stay here. A 5 minute walk to the subway and 15 mins later, you are in Manhattan. The apartment is in a very quiet safe residential neighborhood. Lots of room with a nice kitchen. Beds are a bit hard but this would be my only criticism. The owner has a binder with lots of useful information about the neighborhood and getting around. If you are flying in, this is about the same distance from JFK as LGA. Would definitely stay here again as we saved over $500 vs. staying in a Manhattan hotel.

A great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for two nights on our first trip to NYC. The apartment is nicely decorated and has everything you need to be comfortable away from home, except for washcloths! They would have been very helpful!

The subway is close, as is Super Pollo which was delicious! The apartment listing was accurate, and the manager was in good contact before and after the stay. The combinations on the doors to get in and out of the building/apartment were easy to use, although the front porch was not well lit so you need some type of light to be able to see to get in after dark.

The owner's request quiet between 9pm and 9am, so just know that if you're planning late night or early morning activities - it was a bit of a drag to have to worry about being really quiet when coming up the wooden stairs late at night.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this apartment. It is spacious and light, tastefully decorated, and has a very well equipped kitchen (including a coffee grinder, a very pleasant surprise). The property manager was helpful and kept in touch, contacting us before our arrival to be sure we had all the information we needed to get into the apartment and for parking (we found a space on the street directly in front of the building). Instructions for everything were clear and accurate. Subway connection to Manhattan is easy. The apartment is ideal for a couple or a family with young children, but worked well for us (two couples). We would definitely stay here again.

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.
