Ideal location, comfortable apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable three bedroom basement apartment in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, close to 3 subway stations, shopping centre, minimart, bagels. Stephanie was very helpful, especially when my daughter left her hard drive connected to the TV. We (family of 6) felt very safe there, took the subway to Manhattan within 20 minutes, and went the other way to beautiful Prospect Park too. So much to see - all so close. Great base for a New York holiday.

Comfortable and ideally located

  • 4 of 5

Stephanie and Justin were the perfect hosts. The appartement was also perfect for us, a family with two teenagers. It had everything we needed for a one week stay. Very well located near subway, with direct trains to Manhatten, and lots of local shops within walking distance.. We will be back!

So well equiped and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Travelling to New York from Australia with our 4 children aged 15 to 8 it would be fare to say we were a little bit nervous! Stephanie was very responsive to all my emails prior to the visit and gave great advice on options for transport from the airport. When we arrived at the apartment it was so warm, welcoming and spotlessly clean on a cold New York night! The layout of the apartment was perfect with a king, double, single and trundle beds in the three bedrooms. The bedrooms are close together but that was not an issue for my family. The apartment was well equiped with everything we needed and the washing machine and dryer was great for a family staying for 7 days. The best thing about the apartment was location. Away from the madness of Times Square but only a 2 minute walk to a big subway station that allows you to get anywhere! Fantastic restaurants and shops within walking distance and we all felt very safe walking in the area and using the subway at night. This really is the perfect location and accomodation for a family travelling to New York. Hopefully we will be back and I would definitely stay here again.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults stayed here over the Christmas holiday. Everything was great! Comfortable beds, tons of towels, TP, kitchen well stocked, and the location is awesome! Minutes to the subway & grocery stores/Target. Stephanie was very responsive to my questions & needs. I highly recommend Bergen Bagels....:)

Great property and location

  • 4 of 5

Great location and property for our visit to NYC. The subway was very close as well as some great restaurants and access to groceries. Our family loved having our own spaces to relax in the evenings. The owners were super friendly and helpful - as well as available if we needed them.
