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 Bedford-Stuyvesant

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!

Amazing Hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

I have travelled all over the world and this is one of the best places I have stayed in, a real home from home. Richard & Lulu were amazing hosts, very welcoming and helpful.

The space is amazingly generous and contains everything you need and more. It was a delight to experience a traditional NYC house with beautiful original features which was inviting, warm and immaculately clean.

Great public transport links, taxi and Uber services and very easy to get everywhere in Brooklyn and Manhattan.

I will be definitely staying again next time I’m in NYC for business or pleasure.

Brilliant base in Bed-Stuy

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice stay at Richard and Lulu's place. It's a beautiful apartment with lovely furniture, great bathroom (shower and tub are ace) and comfy bed. The a/c and ceiling fans alleviated the unseasonably hot weather in NYC, and it was quiet at night so we slept well.

Lulu and Richard are extemely welcoming and friendly hosts - their hospitality was fantastic. We were pampered like we were staying in a hotel, but with the space and privacy of a self-catering apartment rental. The best of both worlds basically, with delicious breakfasts and sweet treats every day (Lulu's biscotti are something special!).

We felt at home, and it was the perfect base from which to explore NYC. Utica Ave subway is ten minutes' walk away, where you can catch the express A train to Manhattan. Locally, Oskar's restaurant is a great dinner spot and Trade Union was brilliant for a lunch/coffee stop. Other areas of Brooklyn are also within easy reach for exploring; we checked out Park Slope and DUMBO for example.

The area's brownstones make for picturesque streets, and staying in a residential neighbourhood rather than a city hotel was really nice, giving an insight into NYC life. Thank you Richard and Lulu! We would love to come back.

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!
