About The Owner

Owners Carl and Rie live in another apartment on the 2nd and 3rd floor in the historical 2 family brown stone house.

Our home is located in one of the ideal locations in Crown Heights North Historic District. Living here allows us to enjoy the convenience that city living can offer in a diverse, vibrant, and cultural community. We enjoy walking to the Farmers market by Grand Army Plaza every Saturday, going to Museums and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden and attending free summer concerts in Prospect Park amongst many other activities that this great city can offer. We can advise the way around in NYC and Brooklyn as well as nearby beaches and mountains’ day trips.

We love taking good care of our home and welcoming our guests.

We couldn't be any happier with our stay in Brooklyn. Clean as a whistle with comfortable furnishing, Rie and Carl were so eager to make sure we had everything we needed. They are wonderful hard working people that we really appreciated. They were very easy to communicate with and always responded right away. Crown Heights is a diverse area with plenty to do. Shopping for food or small gifts were available around the neighborhood. Getting into the city was only an 30-minute subway ride. We look forward to our next year 5-week stay.

My parents and mother in law enjoyed it very much.

  • 5 of 5

My parents and mother in law visited in New York to welcome our new addition to the family. They said Rie and her husband were very hospitable and kind. The VRBO is also very conveniently located and our parents could come over to our house in no time. Having a fully functional kitchen also allowed them to have breakfast at home, what saved them quite a bit of money. They already told me that they would like to stay in this VRBO again when they visit the next time.

Happy parents, that is all that counts :)
