Perfect for large group

  • 5 of 5

The house was better than advertised. Lots of large rooms for sleeping. Fantastic kitchen and open spaces for a group to hang out together. Owner was communicative throughout the entire process from the moment I messaged him with interest. Best experience I've had on VRBO for any group bookings. Plenty of available street parking. Only downside is that it's pretty far from anything in Brooklyn, so if you're looking to spend time outside of the house in the city, be prepared for some added travel time. Certainly not a downside if you're looking to go boating or visit Coney Island.

Thanks Peter for a great stay!

Wedding Party Meet & Greet weekend

  • 4 of 5

This house was huge and amazing. So many rooms! Everyone had such an amazing time enjoying the house and neighborhood. My fiance and I are getting married this year and we wanted our wedding party to get fully acquainted before our big day. It was a total of 14 of us and everyone was comfortable. Spacious living space and kitchen. The neighborhood is gorgeous and quiet. Peter was a great host. He called me one day prior to make sure I didn't have any questions and called me upon arrival to make sure I made it okay. He also checked on us when we were leaving to ensure we had a great time and we certainly did. Its hard to run into nice people but Peter is definitely rare a gem. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone. Great for large group or families.

Thank you,

This home hosted my 50th birthday celebration. The homeowner was thorough in researching who I was and the nature of my event. He stayed in constant contact and communication throughout the entire process; very accommodating. Nothing is small in this home, everything is massively impressive. The jaws of my guests dropped as they walked through the door into the great room. My personal chef enjoyed working in the kitchen and using the high quality appliances. This home has so many places to relax and unwind, it's perfect for large extended families and social events. I am already directing family and friends to this home and will definitely use it again in the very near future. A true hidden gem in Brooklyn, NY.

Nice House that was fit for our large group

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for my family's Christmas Vacation. We had a large group and everyone was able to find their own space but we were still able to come together as family without stepping on or over one another. We did have some issues with the plumbing (hence the 4 stars rating) in which the owner addressed immediately. Other than that the house served it purpose well. The extra queen sized airbeds came in handy for the kids to use and there was more than enough space to choose from in the house to put them.

The kitchen was the best room in the house. Lots of space to move around especially on Christmas Day when preparing dinner.

The neighborhood was very quite with lots of shopping within a 20 minute or less drive.

Overall we truly enjoyed this house and its owner Peter, who checked in from time to time to ensure that everything was okay. I would definitely rent this home again and recommend it to friends.

Spacious Home in a Nice Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Our group of eight adults and three children chose this house for a recent family get together because it appeared to be large and comfortable while still being close enough to Manhattan to enjoy the city attractions. Our expectations were easily satisfied in all respects.

The owner, Peter, was very hospitable, calling us immediately on arrival and several times thereafter to make sure that everything was going well for us.

The house itself is comfortable and spacious and pleasantly decorated. The neighborhood feels friendly and safe and is only a few minutes away from all the restaurants and shopping centers you could hope for.

Getting into Manhattan could be time-consuming depending on the time of day, traffic and the like, but how many 4,500 square foot houses can you find for rent closer to Manhattan, and, if you did find any, what would they cost to rent? Besides, not everybody needs to go to Manhattan. Access to Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and Long Island is quick and easy from this house, and there are plenty of great things to do in all of these places.

We enjoyed our stay in this house and hope to be able stay there again in the future.

Large home, nice neighborhood, convenient to grocery shops, pharmacy, etc…

  • 5 of 5

Large home with (4) bathrooms, (5) bedrooms with (6) beds that could sleep (2) each plus a 3rd floor kids nook with (2) single beds and a double mattress on the floor. We had (8) people and could have slept 6+ more with ease. Everyone had private space and plenty of room to get together. The large dining room table made it convenient to entertain guests that joined us for an evening. The property owner was very approachable, responsive and good to work with. No issues came up during our 6 day visit. We would stay here again.
