Beautiful Brownstone Penthouse
average rating of 4.9302325 based on 43 reviews

Great Location, excellent accommodations. It was the perfect fit for us.

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse in the heart of Brooklyn is great. It has everything we needed to get us ready everyday for our trip to the city. Easy access (2-3 min walking) to the subway made it extremely convenient for us as we made daily trips to the city. The apartment is cozy and it felt like an extension of home. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals and snacks. High enough to keep the noise away.

We would definitely consider coming back and stay here again.

lovely place and owners

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice old brownstone in brooklyn not far from a subway with easy access into the city. A good place to be away from to much hustle and bustle, and is fully self contained. Jacqui and David the owners are helpful and friendly. Unfortunately we had very hot weather and the airconditioner we had filled with water and as the owners were away we didn't know how to empty it. But there are fans. A minor gripe.

This is a lovely place to stay. Thanks for having us.😊

Owner's Response: Melissa, Thank you for the review..glad that you enjoyed your stay . We're glad to have helped while here.Sorry,it's the first time we have encountered a problem with the A.C. it must have inadvertently been switched to the humidifier position.Thank you for being alert to the situation. For some reason things always seem to happen while away ! We hope that you enjoyed the deck patio with it's spectacular view of the World Trade Center#1and environs. Thanks again....... You came a long ways and you were able to rendezvous with long time friends. nothing better! Best wishes, David and Jacqui

We Loved the Garden Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were close to the subway and loved the ambiance of the garden apartment. The beds were comfortable and David and Jacqui were easy to communicate with. There is a wonderful large, square table in the kitchen that sits eight. It was where we sat and planned out next day's adventures. Enjoyed walking to Saraghina for dinner (wonderful service and great food). Brooklyn Baby Cakes has a delicious coconut cake (plus lots more). We always felt safe.

This penthouse was very comfortable and bright. The bed was very comfortable. It was decorated with unique artwork and furniture. The kitchen was well equipped with new appliances. I highly recommend this brownstone and we plan on coming back again.

Couldn't Have Asked For More!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I decided to book with Jacqui and David because of the stellar reviews they had received from previous renters. Sure enough, they're beautiful home was everything described and more. The apartment is in a phenomenal location in the cool Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn. David was happy to make plenty of restaurant recommendations, a few of which we checked out, and they were awesome! If we return to Brooklyn, we will be sure to stay with Jacqui and David again.
