About Geert Dhondt

My wife and I both work at the City University of New York in Manhattan and our three children attend public schools here in Brooklyn. We all take the local subway to go to work and school and are very familiar with the system.

Geert Dhondt purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Geert Dhondt chose Bedford-Stuyvesant

This area of Brooklyn is distinctly recognized as an "up and coming" neighborhood. We experience it as distinctly friendly and feel safe and welcomed here at all times in the day or night. Many highly recommended restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries, grocery stores and bodegas are within a short walk of our home.

Very charming appartment

  • 4 of 5

This was a very charming appartment with lots of beds. It is well located. (10 mins walk from the subway). At first, it doesn't seem to, but it is safe to walk very late at night. It is a bucolic neighborhood of Brooklyn.

This is a good thing we rented on the last floor as it is a very old building and you hear a lot of other tenants walking.

The owners are very nice. As soon as we need something, they take care of it. They gave us ideas of where to go.

I would recommend making sure the utensils are well washed and provide newer dish linen.

Despite those small ajustments, it's a nice place that I recommend for a family.

Cute and cozy apartment

  • 5 of 5

Staying here made me a bigger fan of Brooklyn over Manhattan's tourist hustle and bustle. The feel of the neighborhood felt safe and there is so many cute restaurants and many more. I would definitely stay here again if traveling to Brooklyn. Plus the host, Geert was great with checking in on us via email upon arrival to make sure we made it safely. His family also have a very detailed folder with basically everything you need to know about the house and neighborhood.

Cozy Setup in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

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

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.
