About the property

Studio 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 3 Sleeps

Why stay in an expensive cold hotel room, when you can stay in a beautiful, affordable, warm and cozy apartment. After touring the sites of Brooklyn and/or New York City, all you’ll want to do is come home to a place where you can feel comfortable, kick off your shoes and relax. This apartment gives you the experience of living like a local by offering you a place you can call home.

The apartment is decorated in modern style with an open floor plan. The eat-in kitchen is fully equipped and includes seating for four. The studio is spacious and has a queen size bed, living room area, bathroom, air-conditioning in the summer and heated floors in the winter. The apartment includes a 32 inch TV with cable television and free wireless internet. There is also a beautiful garden for your enjoyment with a BBQ grill.

This apartment is not shared, so you'll also have plenty of privacy. All details have been attended in order to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The apartment is easily accessible on the ground floor. The apartment sleeps 2 people; however we can make arrangements for a max of 3.

So why should you consider staying here above others? Aside from the apartment itself, we care about our guests. We ensure you have everything you need to make your stay a wonderful experience.

We’re located in a safe, quiet neighborhood on a tree lined block. We are conveniently close to Manhattan, about 15 minutes to Union Square in NYC. The Subway and all public transportation is one block away from the apartment making this area a convenient way to travel to all major tourist attractions.

Here you’ll find many restaurants, open markets, tourist attractions, park, night life and other establishments all within walking distance and/or a quick subway or bus ride. You’ll love our central location, modern comforts and friendly nature. If you’re still not convinced, read our reviews from past guests. We're half the cost of a hotel with double the space to enjoy. Book with us, you won't regret it.

About Jacqueline

Born in NYC, raised in Brooklyn and still I am exploring new places here. I can tell you that the most exciting place you want to be is in NYC, however it will tire you out. So like most New Yorkers who work in the city all day, I wanted to find myself a place away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to hop on a train to work or meet up with some friends for a night out. Brooklyn has become very popular and like myself you'll find it's a wonderful place to enjoy.

Jacqueline purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Jacqueline chose Greenwood

I choose this property because of the neighborhood and how close it is to New York City. Brooklyn gives you a different feel and experience than what you would expect in NYC. I guess, I would describe Brooklyn as a melting pot with many cultural influences. For example, you can find a restaurant for any type of cuisine! I would say it's just as exciting as NYC, yet not as touristy. It's a place you can escape to as well and live like the residents here. Depending on your vibe, there is so much to do here. Brooklyn is definitely a place to visit while visiting New York.

Everything you need at a great price

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable studio apartment had everything I needed for a four-night stay. It's on a lovely and quiet residential street in a safe, diverse neighborhood. There's a kitchen, but the apartment is a minute's walk to a vibrant avenue with terrific and affordable ethnic eateries. I felt totally safe, even late at night, walking by myself to and from the subway a couple blocks away. Oh, did I say there's a washer and dryer? And that the very large park of same name of neighborhood, Sunset Park is a great place to get walk, jog, get a view of the city… I can't wait to go back.

This VRBO was very clean and neat and was well equipped for daily needs.

It is in a very convenient location so I was able to walk/take the subway to everywhere I needed to go.

There is a beautiful patio to enjoy but my schedule was so filled I was unable to sit and enjoy it.... maybe next time.

Comfy, sparkling-clean, relaxing and lovely garden apartment getaway

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in Jacquelines's relaxing garden apartment for three weeks. Jacqueline is a warm and friendly host who takes great pride in her home, the apartment and the relaxing backyard! We already miss her and the apartment. The floors are gorgeous and are heated with radiant heat in the winter. In summer, the apartment is air-conditioned. There is a full-size fridge and freezer, an oven, dishes, plastic and reusable bags for shopping. When Jacqueline remodeled the apartment she chose lovely, easy to clean fixtures. The ceilings are surprisingly high. When she remodeled, she had the contractors dig deeper so there was more headroom. You will not feel cramped at all. There is a full size closet, some other closets we didn't even use, and drawers for clothes. She also provided extra linens. My daughter was studying ballet and we were doing a lot of walking. Since we were staying for a few weeks, it was a life-saver to have a really incredible washer and dryer. Jacqueline told us where the nearby grocery store was. We walked there for food and sundries. The neighborhood is family friendly, and only a short walk to the subway (super convenient D/N/R lines). You can easily get anywhere you need to go. Jacqueline helped us with the subway and we were able to find our way around very easily. There are lot of great local restuarants and diners nearby too. The entire apartment is sparkling clean and the surfaces are easy to wipe up any remnants of dinner or a snack. It smelled lovely and fresh. There was also a large tv with cable and blu ray (we didn't use the blu ray player) for when my daughter was so exhausted from dance that she could veg out. The backyard is tended with care and love. Jacqueline has created a beautiful flower garden and ample seating in the lovely backyard space. There is even a grill. The bed and sofa were both extremely comfortable with clean and fresh linens and pillows. The shower had great pressure and hot water. Staying here was so much better than a motel! You get a real feel for the city and it's great residents. It was comforting to know how much care and pride Jacqueline take in her apartment. It really shows. The apartment is private and secure; if you wanted to, you could easily forget you are in a city. Jacqueline has made a great use of the space (lots of seating and surfaces). It really felt like home. It was perfect and we won't hesitate to stay again. Thank you so much Jacqueline for a lovely stay!
