About Richard Morin

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.

Richard Morin purchased this townhome in 2007

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!

It is amazing. Very clean and comfortable. The bathroom is very clean. Perfect place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Lulu was more then accomdating. They allowed us to check in early and gave us everything we needed upon arriving including tea and a snack a map of the area and suggestions on food near by. It was like having our very own place in New York. They cleaned up when we would leave no matter what time it was. They don't knock on your door at 11 like a hotel. The shower and bathroom were clean and beautiful with a shower head tall enough for a 6'4" man.

Every morning there was a healthy breakfast waiting for us. And a snack for us when we got home. We would look forward to see what was left for us every night.

This is the perfect spot to stay. 5 min. From metro walking. It was nice and private made us feel like we were real yorkers. For a week lol.

The property was very comfortable and spacious with a fantastic bathroom and high ceilings.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Richard & Lulu's. They have to be the nicest most generous hosts we have come across. From the moment we walked in we felt so welcome.

Lulu is an amazing baker, we had delicious treats and our breakfasts were so varied and colourful.

We really were well looked after.

I highly recommend staying here, the bed was very comfortable and the commute into Manhattan was very easy.

We absolutely loved our 9 day stay in Brooklyn.

They are the hosts of all hosts

Thanks again

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but good things to say about our stay with LuluM. We only stayed for a few days, but our host made us feel right at home. We were greeted with snacks and loved the morning mix of fresh fruits for breakfast; great way to start our days. Apartment itself was spacious and spotless. Parking on the street is safe and easy to find.

Forget going to a hotel. We will definitely come back next time we are in the area for the 5-star service.

Thank you!

Great apartment to rent while visiting NYC Breakfast each and every morning. Try the neighborhood restaurants they are GREAT. We took Lulu's advice regarding subway travel, ate at Peaches and Chez Oskar restaurants, and enjoyed the friendliness and charm of Brooklyn! We have used vrbo.com for our travel needs and have found this home to be one of the favorites! Thank you Richard and Lulu for your hospitality! Mike and Sue
