About Ben

Hi there! My name's Ben. My wife Elizabeth and our daughter Madelyn have been living here in Brooklyn for over five years now.

Ben purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Ben chose Brooklyn

We were looking for something in Brooklyn to accommodate Liz's work commitments and we found this amazing Brownstone in the up and coming neighborhood of Stuyvesant Heights. It has really been amazing watching the neighborhood grow with small businesses popping up everywhere to bring a richness and diversity to the area.

What makes this apartment unique

The neighborhood is over 100 years old and as such the architecture everywhere is stunning to look at. We had always fantasized about owning a Brownstone and its been a dream come true, living in one and renovating it over time.

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our short visit (5 days) to New York was made so much warmer and homely thanks to Ben's accommodation and hosting. The place was clean and exactly like the pictures - spacious and never had an issue with heating (we visited early December). The bed was comfortable and the pocket room behind the bedroom meant we had a place to hang our clothes/winter jackets and keep our luggage out of the way.

Ben himself was a wonderful host, always ready to answer any questions we had about the rreservation, the room and places around Brooklyn. We managed to forget our keys inside the apartment and thankfully, having Ben live upstairs meant he was quickly able to come down and open the door for us. We also arrived late at night and never felt rushed to get there. Instead, we were greeted with a warm smile and friendly Australian accent (being Australian myself, it was much appreciated!)

The place itself was not more than a convenient 10 minute walk in any direction to the station or for food (Ma n Pop's for an amazing, authentic southern brekky and delicious pizzas and mexican for dinner!) It was also easy to get to Manhattan every morning, taking around 40 minutes, and taking the a train in.

I would gladly recommend this place to friends and family and wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Ben for making our Brooklyn experience wonderful :)

Absolutely loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We made such a great choice by staying in this gorgeous Brooklyn apartment during our visit to New York. It's clean, quiet and gorgeously decorated, with all the amenities you'd want to feel home away from home. The bed was super comfy and the spare room off the back of the bedroom was the perfect place to set up a place to sleep for our toddler!

It was convenient to have so many bodegas nearby, and the neighborhood guide that the owners put together was seriously helpful in navigating our way around - both locally and in the city. We particularly loved a southern restaurant within walking distance called Peaches, but really everywhere we dined in that neighborhood was awesome.

I would definitely recommend staying here, and look forward to visiting again!

Ben has an amazing home! Very clean and spacious! Even though my sister and I spent most of our time at a Afro Punk, It was nice to come back to a beautiful brown stone! Close to the subway and all the GREAT food spots!! Very quiet neighborhood!

I'm coming back! He is going to get so tired of me! hehe!!

Thanks Ben to you and your family for all your hospitality!

Beautiful Place in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in the parlor-level apartment while in New York City. The second visit was just as good as the first. Our second visit was during a heat wave in New York and the window units in both the living room and the bedroom kept the apartment very comfortable during the warm nights. The apartment is clean, comfy, and in a great location. Plus, Ben is a great host and is always easy to get in touch with.

This apartment was great to stay at during our trip to NYC. It was very clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Ben did a great job of communicating with us during our stay. He made sure we were comfortable and was easily accessible with any questions we asked. If I ever come back to NYC, I will be at staying here again.
