About Richard Morin

We love to entertain friends & families whenever we can. We would like to meet people from all over the world & introduce them to the real Brooklyn, get a taste of living like the locals. We always make sure that a portion of the income is donated to charity, such as community food pantries and women's shelters, etc.

Richard Morin purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Richard Morin chose Bedford-Stuyvesant

The house was built in 1899 & remains in great condition. Guests will appreciate its charm and comfort.

This is a REAL neighborhood and everybody knows everyone. Children play outside safely.

What makes this townhome unique

What can I say, this is New York! We just had a film made on the story of Jackie Robinson, he grew up on our block. We have a lot of history here. Come and get a taste of it.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Bonjour Richard et Lulu!

Le retour a ete super, on ne s'est pas perdus et il n'y a eu presque aucun traffic alors ca ete rapide.



Winnie the Pooh est a Juliette et on le cherchait justement, c'est son ami precieux qu'elle a eu en voyage a Disney avec mon pere l'an passe...je suis soulage qu'il ne soit pas perdu a tout jamais ;)...Si vous pouvez l'envoyer, je vous paierai les frais.



Nous sommes tellement contents de notre voyage et nous voulions vous remercier encore une fois. Ce n'est pas toujours facile voyager avec 3 enfants et dans une chambre d'hotel, on se marche sur les pieds. L'appartement etait super et vous etes extras...nos amis et familles qui ont vu les photos sur facebook se sont exclames devant votre superbe appartement et je n'hesiterais pas a le recommander. Frederic et moi pensons retourner a Brooklyn a deux l'an prochain et nous savons deja que c'est votre appart que nous louerons (ce sera beaucoup plus tranquille pour vous, on n'a pas l'habitude de courir dans la maison...hihihi). On s'est vraiment sentis chez nous grace a vous et toutes vos petites attentions. Quand on a demande aux enfants ce qu'ils ont prefere du voyage, dans leur top 3, il y avait ''Richard et Lulu'' et Juliett a dit: ''les dejeuners de Lulu sur la petite tablette''...Tous les matins, elle se levait d'un bond et venait me reveiller pour me dire que le dejeuner etait la...ca vraiment ete un highlight de son voyage..Ce matin encore, les enfants discutaient de comment ''les dejeuners de Lulu etaient bons''.

Petite question de bouffe justement, est-ce que les petits biscuits style biscottis ?taient une recette secrete, sinon, d'ou venaient-ils??? Ils ?taient TELLEMENT bons.



Bonne semaine et merci encore du fond du coeur!

Great Hospitality!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at LuluM for our 30th Anniversary trip. Lulu was great in helping us navigate the subway system and places to eat in the area. The personal touch of having breakfast and snacks when we returned from the city was great!! I would definitely stay here again.

Thanks Lulu and Rich!!

Great Brooklyn Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in this great Brooklyn apartment and it was even better than we remembered. Richard and LuLu are terrific hosts and the breakfasts and snacks are worth the trip by themselves. We'll be back!

Great escape after a busy day in the cement jungle!

  • 5 of 5

All the feedback in these great reviews are true!!! Richard and LuLu are phenomenal. The place was perfect for us two sisters on a week away! We had more than enough space and felt right at home. We were almost stuck an extra night because of the weather and they were quick to offer us accommodations. They are kind, welcoming and give you all the personal space you need while still making you feel like you are part of their home. They have a great system. You get your own keys and they helped us get a cab for our trip back to the airport! They go over and above to make sure their guests enjoy their stay.

We found it really great to take a 10 min walk to the train and be into Manhattan in no time. We would spend the whole day exploring and then have the luxury of getting out of the crazy busy city in the comfort of our own space at Richard & LuLus.

The location is easy to find. There is some great local restaurants near by. We always felt safe on our walks to and from the train, no matter the time of day. The neighbourhood has a lot of character! Breakfast was a perfect start to our day and we always looked forward to our “welcome home” snack. We had enough space to keep our own snacks, we had fresh towels every day, we had more than enough of what we needed for the 8 nights we were there. The shower was our favorite - especially after a long winter day in NYC!

I would highly recommend this place and would definitely stay again the next time we go back to New York!

Warm and light filled space with great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Richard and Lulu tended to details without being intrusive. There are two large rooms, one a living space and a large bedroom and bath. The north-south aspect means great light.

There is a toaster oven, microwave, refrigerator and dishes. A light breakfast and afternoon treat are provided.

With easy access to trains, we came and went as we pleased and found a wonderful space for rest and relaxation at the end of each day.

Amazing Hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

I have travelled all over the world and this is one of the best places I have stayed in, a real home from home. Richard & Lulu were amazing hosts, very welcoming and helpful.

The space is amazingly generous and contains everything you need and more. It was a delight to experience a traditional NYC house with beautiful original features which was inviting, warm and immaculately clean.

Great public transport links, taxi and Uber services and very easy to get everywhere in Brooklyn and Manhattan.

I will be definitely staying again next time I’m in NYC for business or pleasure.
