Guestbook comments from the manager

Adorable place and family!

We stayed here for a little less than a week and it was perfect! The family was very sweet and helpful. They had a map with suggestions of places to check out and anything else we may have needed to know. The location was really nice, close to the subway and the street seemed very safe. When we came home late it wasn't scary or an issue at all. The room was very clean and maintained, they kept us very comfortable! If I ever need a place to stay in NY this will be on the top of my list! Loved it!

So nice!

  • 5 of 5

The studio is nice and pleasant, well equipped and has a nice personal touch to it (which so many 'commercial' apartments lack). The bed is excellent (very important) and we would like to have the bathroom in our own house. The studio reflects the owners who redesigned it: charming, welcome and with eye for detail. The residential area in which it is located makes you realise there is more to New York than Manhattan.

Dear Kermit and Azadeh, thank you for your warm welcome. It was a pleasure to stay in the studio and it felt like 'our house' in New York.

  • 5 of 5

Me and my boyfriend did a weekend getaway which was amazing and we accomplished everything we wanted to do and see. Our stay was wonderful. The apartment was nice and cozy perfect for us two. Would recommend it to anyone. Very nice quiet neighborhood. We visited a pizza place around there as well as we dined at Julias around there as well which was wonderful. Also got to take a great picture of the skyline if you walked towards the baseball field. Thank you for having us and hope to go back soon.

It was just perfect. The studio looks the same as in the pictures. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe. There is a market at one block, and the metro station is at 4/5 blocks.

Bridget and the owners were friendly and kindly answered all my mails really fast.

It was great.

Hope you enjoy your stay there as much as we did.

Times Square
Car: not necessary

Straddling the neighborhoods of Bushwick, Brooklyn and Ridgewood, Queens, the apartment is 5 blocks away from the Dekalb Street 'L' train station in Brooklyn—one of the best subway lines in the city. Union Square, the heart of downtown Manhattan, is only 15 minutes away via a direct subway ride; Williamsburg, Brooklyn's stylish boutiques, bars and restaurants are only a 7 minute train ride away.

Our apartment is the best of both worlds as it's in a quieter, more residential neighborhood, but walking distance to a number of stylish cafes, restaurants, wine bars, art galleries, performance venues, yoga studios, and a great 24-hour gourmet/organic grocery store all within a 10 minute walk from the apartment.

Free street parking can usually be found directly in front of the apartment and there is a large grocery just two blocks away that delivers.

There are also local Italian bakeries, Halal butcher shops, Equadorian bodegas, Polish food markets and the best tasting Mexican tamales we've ever come across. All relevant information can be found in our Guest Welcome binder in the apartment and we hope that you will explore these local gems during your visit.
