Cozy Setup in Brooklyn

Geert and crew are great hosts. All was ready and clean on our arrival and Geert was a flexible and friendly host. Not far from the subway, we found the location accessible and safe. The neighborhood is in transition, but has some lovely spots for coffee and eats.

Lovely home in Bed-Stuy

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

My two young children, my brother, his wife, and their two young children all very much enjoyed our stay at Geert's beautiful home (that's 3 adults and 4 kids aged 4-8). The location was great, felt very safe, and had a lot of typical Brooklyn neighborhood color; it is subway accessible, close to multiple restaurants, grocery and liquor stores, and even a playground!

Geert was very communicative and while I never met him in person, I did meet his two delightful children on a couple of occasions. Checking in and out was a breeze and we had no trouble getting in touch with a Geert when we needed him.

Just a word of note, this top floor apartment is very well appointed, but is best for family or very close friends, as all three bedrooms feed into one another and there is a single bathroom. This was not a problem for us and we enjoyed the close quarters, but might be off-puttting for some. Also, this is a top floor apartment up 2 flights of relatively narrow stairs.

Overall, we had a lovely stay, Geert and his family were the perfect hosts, and if we find ourselves in NYC, we would definely stay here again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The listing description was very accurate. The apartment was clean and the owners were very nice. It is a short walk to a subway station, restaurants and shops. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Wonderful rental!

Verified Stay

I stayed here for 4 nights with my wife and 3 kids in the beginning of August. We absolutely loved it! The kitchen and bathroom are brand new and beautiful. We got the 7 day unlimited subway/bus pass to get to Manhattan and mastered the subways and buses. A bus stop is across the street and can take you to the subway and coming back at night we would take a bus back up the 12 blocks or so and only have a block walk back to the apartment. Amazing place, great rate and a lot of room considering it's in New York! Our family would highly recommend it. Thank you Geert!

Ideaal voor familie voor een week of meer in NYC

  • 4 of 5

Een mooi appartement op 15 minuten van de metro met directe verbinding naar Manhattan (neem de A-trein, die gaat sneller). Alles wat je nodig hebt is aanwezig. Een kleurrijke, veilige buurt (heel NY is veilig) met restaurants en veel winkels. Geert en familie zijn erg gastvrij en behulpzaam.

Tip: neem de tijd om New York te bezoeken en kom voor minstens 1 week of zelfs 2 weken, dan kan je ook naar een gospelmis (Brooklyn Tabernacle), een sportwedstrijd (baseball, NBA, ...), Tom's restaurant voor een Amerikaans ontbijt (Brooklyn) en het strand (Coney Island - hotdog bij Nathan's).

excellente location

  • 5 of 5

Le propriétaire est trés chaleureux, le logement très agréable, à 15 minutes à pied du métro pour se rendre à Manhattan ou même à l'aéroport JFK (qui est aussi accessible en 1 h en bus à toute heure du jour ou de la nuit). Il y a des commerces à proximité et un parc avec des jeux pour enfant : Brooklyn est un quartier délicieux...
