We love to entertain friends & families whenever we can. We would like to meet people from all over the world & introduce them to the real Brooklyn, get a taste of living like the locals. We always make sure that a portion of the income is donated to charity, such as community food pantries and women's shelters, etc.

Why Richard Morin chose Brooklyn

The house was built in 1899 & remains in great condition. Guests will appreciate its charm and comfort.

This is a REAL neighborhood and everybody knows everyone. Children play outside safely.

What makes this townhome unique

What can I say, this is New York! We just had a film made on the story of Jackie Robinson, he grew up on our block. We have a lot of history here. Come and get a taste of it.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Bonjour Richard et Lulu!

Le retour a ete super, on ne s'est pas perdus et il n'y a eu presque aucun traffic alors ca ete rapide.



Winnie the Pooh est a Juliette et on le cherchait justement, c'est son ami precieux qu'elle a eu en voyage a Disney avec mon pere l'an passe...je suis soulage qu'il ne soit pas perdu a tout jamais ;)...Si vous pouvez l'envoyer, je vous paierai les frais.



Nous sommes tellement contents de notre voyage et nous voulions vous remercier encore une fois. Ce n'est pas toujours facile voyager avec 3 enfants et dans une chambre d'hotel, on se marche sur les pieds. L'appartement etait super et vous etes extras...nos amis et familles qui ont vu les photos sur facebook se sont exclames devant votre superbe appartement et je n'hesiterais pas a le recommander. Frederic et moi pensons retourner a Brooklyn a deux l'an prochain et nous savons deja que c'est votre appart que nous louerons (ce sera beaucoup plus tranquille pour vous, on n'a pas l'habitude de courir dans la maison...hihihi). On s'est vraiment sentis chez nous grace a vous et toutes vos petites attentions. Quand on a demande aux enfants ce qu'ils ont prefere du voyage, dans leur top 3, il y avait ''Richard et Lulu'' et Juliett a dit: ''les dejeuners de Lulu sur la petite tablette''...Tous les matins, elle se levait d'un bond et venait me reveiller pour me dire que le dejeuner etait la...ca vraiment ete un highlight de son voyage..Ce matin encore, les enfants discutaient de comment ''les dejeuners de Lulu etaient bons''.

Petite question de bouffe justement, est-ce que les petits biscuits style biscottis ?taient une recette secrete, sinon, d'ou venaient-ils??? Ils ?taient TELLEMENT bons.



Bonne semaine et merci encore du fond du coeur!

STAY HERE!!!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this place! Great location a few blocks from the subway. This was my first visit to NY and I booked it because I thought I'd be comfortable staying solo in this area. Lulu and Richard were very helpful before I arrived and throughout my 10 day stay. The breakfast and evening treats were really wonderful. REALLY WONDERFUL. I felt very cared for and spoiled. Easy and comfortable. Daily weather report umbrellas in case you forget yours. I will stay here the next time I visit. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Richard & Lulu's was great accommodations & we enjoyed our stay very much!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using HomeAway and our first time to the NYC area. Staying at Richard & Lulu's was an excellent first experience. We agree with all the positive reviews previously written, the accommodations were perfect for our family of 3 and the pictures are exactly what you get. Our 14 yr old son slept well on the living room pull out. It's clean & well looked after. The Brownstone homes are so unique and full of character. Wifi was excellent. Prior to arrival Richard gave us directions to take the subway from penn station and his directions were perfect we had no problem getting there by subway. Richard greeted us upon arrival, showed us around the accommodations, provided us a subway map, ideas for eating, there was a homemade snack & tea awaiting us. They went above & beyond in helping us get settled (our son was in a hockey camp prior to our arrival so we had stinky hockey equipment to air outside and they were so gracious about it & went above & beyond to assist us) Lulu's breakfasts each morning were delicious - her baking is spectacular & the fruit served so fresh & sweet - perfect to get us started on our day & eliminated having to stop to eat first thing. And there was always a decadent snack awaiting us at the end of each day as well as fresh towels. There is A/C which was needed at night to sleep as the weather was very warm while we were there. We were only at the accommodations to shower & sleep so didn't see Richard & Lulu but communicated by using the chalkboard or text & there was always a weather update each morning as well as 3 bottles of water to take. We were grateful for the use of their rain ponchos & umbrella as we did use them. Staying in Brooklyn was a great experience. We enjoyed our travels on the subway every day and we didn't mind the walk to & from the subway station. We always arrived back late at night (between 11pm & 1am) & we felt safe on the 10min walk from the subway station to Richard & Lulu's. The neighbors on the street even greeted us the first night saying 'good evening, nice to have you staying here'. Richard made sure we had our ride to the airport arranged for departure & helped us with car service which we were grateful for. He was also there to say goodbye as we departed. We would definitely recommend staying at Richard & Lulu's!!! We can't think of anything we needed that we didn't have available to us! Thank you Richard & Lulu for being a part of our amazing adventure!!

The best stay ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had a couple's vacation to celebrate our wedding anniversary at Lulu and Richard's place and could not have dreamed of a better getaway! The place is beautiful, spotless and extremely comfortable. Lulu takes care of us with delicious breakfasts and sweet treats when we come home after a day downtown. The traveling is easy with the express subway line a short walk away and it was very easy to find parking for our car. The neighborhood is very quiet and perfect for a restful night after NYC roaming. We also ate the best pizza a couple blocks away, Lulu will tell you where! The generosity and care of our hosts touched us deeply! We recommend their place warmly and will definitely be back soon! - Elysia and Minh

Prepared to be spoiled!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to find a Brooklyn property which has owners who care about their guests, who offer up a great place to stay, and who do all the extra things to make a stay feel special, look no further - this is the place for you!

My husband and I stayed with Richard and LuLu and were blown away by the hospitality! They were very welcoming, and provided us with a drink and snack upon arrival, a map and suggestions for places to eat, as well as bottles of water each morning. Lulu is a first rate baker who provided delicious continental breakfasts and a late night snack daily. The property was extremely clean and well-maintained; the bed was very comfortable, the living room had great views, and the shower and bathroom were wonderful. The neighborhood itself is charming, and we enjoyed the 15-minute walk to and from the subway each day.

We felt spoiled at LuLu's and hated to leave! Thank you again for making our 7 day trip to NYC so enjoyable - we'll certainly stay with you again the next time we visit NYC!

Couldn't ask for a better experience!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a beautiful old home, really unique and interesting decor and very comfortable. The breakfast was absolutely perfect for us, and homemade biscotti at the end of the day was such a delicious and unexpected detail! We would definitely stay here again!

Blown Away in Bed Stuy!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed in literally dozens of VRBO's over the last 15 years. We have stayed in homes with better amenities, homes that had more spectacular views, homes with better locations, but we have never, ever had better host than Richard and Lulu. From a service perspective it was like a Ritz Carlton experience. Breakfast in the morning, fresh towels when we got back to the apartment after a long day in the city, fresh water bottles at the door to take on our morning walk, I could go on and on. If you have a reason to spend time in Brooklyn, this is where you should stay. Period.
