Nice old Brownstone in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for a few days in late December. Joyce is very easy to communicate with; we called and asked if we could leave our bags there in the morning before the check-in time, which she said was fine. Once we found the Kingston Ave. subway station just 3-4 blocks away, we figured out how to get to other parts of the city very easily, especially Manhattan. The rental is on the ground floor of a nice, big Brownstone home. The bedroom is spacious, warm in the winter, and has TV. There is also a living room with a couch, chairs, closet, table, and TV, as well as a large kitchen with a table in the center. The kitchen has working fridge/freezer, microwave, stove, and coffee maker. The bathroom is narrow, but has everything you need: Shower/bath with hot water, towels, bath products, sink, mirror, and of course a toilet. There are markets on Kingston Ave. where you can buy cheap groceries, and there is an Orthodox Jewish neighborhood around the subway station, so there are some good delis and other kosher food. A nice place to experience a genuine part of New York with everyday people, while at the same time being able to travel by Subway to all the most famous spots in Manhattan. Would definitely recommend for exploring the city!

The property was the perfect size for two people.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place right between the 3 and c subway. Joyce was very nice and supplied basic travel needs such as shampoo and and blow dryer. The place was very cozy and we really enjoyed staying there.

Good location and facilities

  • 5 of 5

The property is located in a quiet street of a safe middle class neighborhood with good people all around, just five blocks away from the Eastern Parkway / Kingston corner (subway station.)

The fully-equipped apartment is charming and offers the unique experience of authentic Brooklyn living. Everything that we needed was already there (and actually had much more than what we expected.) Our host, Joyce, was charming and helpful and continually looked after us to see if we were OK and had everything we needed.

Needless to say, we highly recommend staying here!

Joyce was very accommodating during our entire stay and was pleasant to work with throughout!

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable accommodations, especially the bed! Charming neighborhood, quiet street for the most part. Easy access to various delis and short walk to the metro. Joyce was great to work with and allowed us to keep our luggage at the house long after checkout since our flight left later in the day. Would definitely stay again if we ever need a place to stay in Brooklyn!

Home needs work for the price

  • 1 of 5

Homeowner & children very nice. I rented & stayed for 3 weeks.. That said, I would not, like I did, rent in the summer. Only one small ac in apt, located in bedroom, at front of the apt.This made the bedroom ok, but the middle (living) room was warm, with only a ceiling fan to draw cool air in from the bedroom, but at the same time, hot air from the kitchen. The next room (kitchen), had no ac, & there was a window that could accommodate one, or a ceiling fan. So this room was warmer & humid. The last room, bathroom, was even warmer & more humid. It was also dark, & walls looked like they had not been painted in years. The whole apt had that look of being dark & needed improvements . The couch in the living room, for the few times I sat on it, was lumpy & uncomfortable. Great park at one end of block, & housing project at other end of block. Area is on way back, but still has a way to go. As does the apt. based on rental price.

Owner's Response: The entire apartment including the bathroom, was painted as recently as two weeks before the guest arrived. The housing project at one end of the block has been there for many years and does not demean the block or the area in any way. The couch was purchased new and placed in the apartment. I have never had such a complaint.
