About The Owner

We are business owners/designers who have lived in the neighborhood with our family for almost 10 years. We love the quiet on our block and the small town feel - yet happy that we're a stones throw from Manhattan and walking distance to some of Brooklyn's best and most vibrant restaurants, performance spaces, bars and cafes.

Great place. The first time that the apartment looks like in the pictures at

  • 5 of 5

Well, most of the reviews so far were correct. We've been there on October 2016 for 16 nights, My wife and i with our 3 daughters (15 12 9).

The place was wonderful , we always felt like we were happy to go back home. Every thing was very well arranged so you don't need to ask any thing ... it was all in emails. We loved to cook , the kitchen was ready for that. The apartment was very cleaned. We hope to come back soon !!!

Great weekend stay!

  • 4 of 5

property was very clean and upkept inside. inside had everything we needed for a weekend trip. beds were comfortable as well as living spaces. has a nice kitchen and dining area if you wanted to cook or eat in. there were several places with a 5 min ride that were good and eat and drink. was very simple to get to subway from this location. parking is difficult at night but we were able to find a spot within 5 min of the house (and it was free). only downside is the location and the area getting to the house. was a little concerning on the Friday night traveling in. the street and surrounding are safe, just traveling in can be challenging if not familiar. the managing team provided us with all the info we needed and a great suggestion packet! overall it was a nice stay and would stay there again for a weekend trip!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words- we're so glad to hear you enjoyed your weekend stay with us! It seems you were able to enjoy some of the many local gems of our neighborhood while still taking advantage of our close subway access to explore other parts of the city! To clarify for future guests, safety is our top priority. We have lived in this neighborhood for over 10 years with our young children, and have always felt safe here and our guests have never had any problems. By foot, our house is a straight shot to a main subway (the L line) and while in a quiet, residential, area- there are always many Ubers, Lyfts, and other car services available at the drop of a hat for those extra late nights getting home!

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

So nice to have so much more room (and free parking) compared to staying in a hotel. It's an old house so the floor are a little squeaky, but very nicely done inside. Neighborhood feels very safe, easy access to groceries, subway, and a handful of restaurants. Owners very helpful.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

I had the best Newyork experience, the unit in historical house, and it equipped with every thing. The area is quit and family friendly, there are parking for the car , and the car has to be removed in certain tims for street cleaning, I think in Tuseday and Thursday frome 11am to 1 pm. The unit is secured. The subway is 8 min waking and can take you to Manhatan. The area has all what you need from groceries to pharmacies and all in walking distance .There has a small play ground it is around 4 min walking.

Very Satisfied

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 4 nights with my husband and 2 small children. We had everything we needed to have a great vacation. We were able to invite family over for dinner which was wonderful. We were able to walk down the street to a corner store to purchase groceries when needed. The location was close to a subway that we navigated with the help of my cousin to go into Manhattan. I truly enjoyed my time in New York and will recommend this apartment rental.

Car: not necessary

Straddling the neighborhoods of Bushwick, Brooklyn and Ridgewood, Queens, the apartment is 5 blocks away from the Dekalb Street 'L' train station in Brooklyn—one of the best subway lines in the city. Union Square, the heart of downtown Manhattan, is only 15 minutes away via a direct subway ride; Williamsburg, Brooklyn's stylish boutiques, bars and restaurants are only a 7 minute train ride away.

Ours is a quieter, more residential neighborhood, but it is in an exciting stage of growth. In the last 5 years there has been a huge influx of artists and creatives in our immediate area. As a result, there is now a solid (and rapidly growing) number of stylish cafes, restaurants, wine bars, art galleries, yoga studios, and a great 24-hour gourmet/organic grocery store all within a 10-12 minute walk from the apartment. There are also local Italian bakeries, Halal butcher shops, Equadorian bodegas, Polish food markets and the best tasting Mexican tamales we've ever come across. All relevant information can be found in our Guest Welcome binder in the apartment and we hope that you will explore these local gems during your visit.
