We lived in this apartment eight days on May. Photos of flat are real. The apartment has everything you need. Quiet, clean and comfortable. In walking distance to two subway stations, cafe and shops (including those working 24 hours). No problems with parking. Thank you Kenny. He helped us and was very friendly. I recommend apartment of Kenny to anyone who wants to see New York and save a little money.
Stayed there for 8 nights.
Very nice appartment, well equipped.
Will come again.
We liked the apartment with its fully equipped kitchen. WiFi would have even been nice, though.
We also liked the neighborhood, and it was close to the metro station. It takes about half an hour to go to lower Manhatten.
We tried to reach our host several times, but he didn't get back to us. That is not acceptable. Fortunately, we did alright without his assistance and had a nice stay in the apartment.
Sent Kenny 2 emails, 1 - verify directions from JFK taking the AirTran & 2 - reminding him we needed an air mattress (ad states available upon request) & asked if luggage could be dropped early. Kenny responded to 1st email verifying directions & 2nd email stated he may not be available upon our arrival, keys would be at his house across the street. No keys, called K, was told he would call cleaning lady. 15 mins later he lets us know he can't get in touch w/ cleaning lady & advices us to get lunch, he will meet us at 2:30p. No K at 2:30p. We waited in drizzling rain until after 3p for him to arrive. There was a couple at his door also waiting Bc they did not have keys in the mailbox. After 5 mins of K talking to the couple, husband walked over & got the keys so we could get our bags out of the rain. There was no air mattress. Called & was told he would deliver one. Returned to apartment after 9p. No mattress. Called K & was told wait 15mins, he was checking one for leaks. 20 mins later he brings it. After 5 mins of inflation it's flat. Called K, no replacement until the next day. Later received text from K saying something seemed "off" w/ us & asking if everything was ok. Next morning responded explaining we didn't enjoy waiting in the rain and son woke up w/ sore neck after sleeping on 2 chairs pushed together. K responded that it was rude of my husband to get the keys while he talked to other clients, rude of me not to wave back when he waved, most guest provide their own mattresses & let me know "New Yorkers don't act that way". He was offended that I didn't wave at him when I was in the rain gathering my bags!
Bathroom light flickers. Dryer breaker flips after 5 mins of use. Electrical & gas hazard. Ants inside when it rains. No curtain on bathroom shower window or kitchen window. Very uncomfortable for female guest. The AC unit is behind curtain that faces main road in bedroom, cannot have curtain open & AC on consecutively w/o neighbors seeing you sleep. Shower goes cold when other tenants use the hot water. Bathroom & living area floor are different heights, lots of toe stubbing! No extra garbage bags, laundry pods or shampoo (popular rentals have extra supplies left from previous guest. This rental does not). Loose ceramic tiles throughout. Nail sticking up through floor in bedroom. Broken dining chair. Blanket only on bed, other guest have to use sheets. Poor water pressure. Security door broken. Hall smells like urine and mildew.
Nice place, great location. Easy access to train to get to the city. I stay there for 8 days with my sisters we had fun. Looking forward to stay over there in the near future :)
I am writing this even if we never stayed at this apartment due to dubbelbooking. unfortunately we never received the info because we were already traveling from Finland to the US when this occured so we showed up at the street where our host Kenny was waiting for us. he was the best! he arranged a place for us to stay and drove us around showing places, took us to the store and even drove us to our daughters place in BK because we could not check in because they had to clean the "new place". this I call 5 star treatment and caring for your customers. too bad we could not stay in his place but he found us another lovely host instead so we were happy!! thank you again Kenny for super service and your kindness. brgds from Finland
The listing looked exactly as depicted in the pictures. The property was very clean and well worth the price. The exterior of the building looked a little ruff but the interior was very nice and clean. The owner Ken is awesome. He was very helpful and available if needed. I would recommend this to others. I rated it a 4 star but would highly recommend it for the price.
We do not provide tours of my rental apartments. This is, in part, because they are almost always occupied by other guests. Also, for the privacy and security of our guests, we do not disclose the physical address of the location until you have booked the apartment. Brooklyn is very large borough and it is the responsibility of the guest to ensure that this area is right for them and their needs before booking. If you are unfamiliar with the location, the nearest cross-streets are Bainbridge Street and Lewis Avenue. The apartment is 1 and 1/2 blocks away from the A express and C local subway lines at Utica Avenue, and 15 minutes from Manhattan.
