Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Brooklyn - Your NYC Vacation

Comfortable and convenient apartment for up to 6 people in NYC!

***You will be greeted with a complimentary bottle of prosecco to celebrate your arrival in New York City!***

Spend your days amidst the hustle and bustle of Manhattan and then take the short trip back to our quiet, well-appointed and relaxing home away from home in Brooklyn. It's so much more comfortable than a cramped NYC hotel room!

Our modern, bright two bedroom and studio apartments are located in a townhouse in the heart of 'Brownstone Brooklyn'. We are situated on a quiet, tree lined street only two minutes walk from the subway for easy access to Manhattan in 20 minutes. The two bedroom apartment overlooks a garden and the studio has its own front garden complete with a bench to sit and watch the world go by.

The apartments are comfortably furnished with everything you need for your wonderful vacation in New York City!

An added bonus!: The townhouse is privately owned by an ex-pat from England. Emma came to New York to live and work, but spent several years seeing the city from a tourist perspective as she explored a new city. If you stay with us at Jefferson Apartments, Emma's experience will be an added bonus - it's like having a concierge on the premises! Emma is on hand to help with directions, restaurant recommendations and off-the-beaten-path tourist tips!

About Emma James

I moved from London to LA in 1994 and then to New York in 1995 and I've been here ever since! I lived for 8 years in Greenwich Village in Manhattan and then moved to Brooklyn in 2002.

Emma James purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Emma James chose Brooklyn

We bought the property because it had a garden and there was more space for our family. Once we moved in, we discovered that we live on the friendliest block in Brooklyn!

What makes this apartment unique

Many people are new to renting a vacation rental as opposed to a hotel. You can rest assured that you will enjoy the experience! I live with my family on the premises and I am here to make sure you have a wonderful stay. I can help with directions and recommendations and any questions you might have whilst you are here. Please email me with any questions and you will see that I respond very quickly!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed at the this excellent apartment for a week just before Christmas - a great time to visit New York and had the best time largely due to our accommodation. It was good to be outside of Manhattan to experience the real NY but conveniently situated for everything. It's 2 minutes from the subway so couldn't have been better. Emma is a great host and recommended the coolest places that wouldn't be on the tourist trail. So best apartment, best location and best host, win, win, win. Thanks Emma.

A great apartment for a holiday!

  • 4 of 5

We travelled from Brisbane to New York and arrived quite late one night on a cold March evening. We were made welcome by Emma who showed us to our warm cozy two bedroom apartment. It was everything we could have wished for and more. The apartment was very clean, well-maintained, tidy, well equipped and large enough to accommodate two couples. The kitchen had everything that was needed to cook our own meals instead of having to eat out all the time. Emma offered lots of advice and information about New York and made us feel quite at home. The location of the unit in Brooklyn was great - quite close to the tube and only a 20 minute ride to Manhattan! I would recommend this apartment to anyone who travels to New York for a holiday.

Séjour à Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine inoubliable à Brooklyn malgré le froid qui a sévi.

L'appartement que nous avons réservé correspondait exactement à ce qui était sur l'annonce et surtout bien équipé.

Très bien situé, à côté du métro, il nous fallait environ 30 mn pour nous rendre à Manhattan. De plus, il était à quelques mètres d'une rue commerçante où l'on a trouvé tout ce dont on avait besoin y compris des petits "restos".

L'emplacement était idéal pour se reposer après une journée intense à Manhattan.

Emma JAMES, la propriétaire, a été très disponible et attentionnée à notre égard. Nous l'avons rencontrée 2 fois et avons communiqué par sms.

Nous recommandons cette location sans problème!

Pour Emma: pouvez-vous me rappeler la formule pour dire" vous êtes bienvenus" en américain? Merci!! Laetitia:)

Everything we wanted and more

  • 5 of 5

We booked the 2 apartments for our 2 families - it was great to have some space and peace & quiet before heading into the whirl of Manhattan every day. Emma was great, providing help and suggestions whenever we asked, and the apartments were clean and bright with all the facilities you'd expect. We'd definitely recommend staying here, it's a great location, vey handy for shops and subway, and it gives you a much better feel for life in New York than staying in a soulless hotel in Times Square. We hope to be back some day!

Absolutely great!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant trip in New York in novembre and we had great time in Emma's flat: it was very easy to go to Manhattan with two underground stations not far from the flat in Brooklyn. The flat was perfect, really! We keep the address for a next trip in New york! Thank you Emma!
