Quaint, but parking is a nightmare

  • 3 of 5

Overall, the apartment was clean and had all the things we needed. Parking was a nightmare. We had to park a couple blocks away our first night, and awoke to find a parking ticket (even though there were no signs). We moved our vehicle that day and then when we tried to leave the following day, we were double parked in from the vehicles across the street because it was garbage day.

There are some nice restaurants in the area and the subway is within walking distance. Overall, we enjoyed our time in NYC, but it would have been nice to know that parking was such an issue and we would have opted to take a train into the city.

Owner's Response: Nancy, Honestly, Your giving us a 3 because of parking? There are signs, you just didn't look or read them carefully. I always instruct guests ( as I did with you) about alternate parking ,and it's really not that daunting to walk a few short blocks every now and then. We park on a regular basis, since we own a vehicle, and it seems to work for us. Next time,you may want to consider taking a train,even though it's not as economical. It's too bad that parking issues spoiled your stay in our great city. Anyway, Thank you again for your patronage and we sincerely hope that you have a better New Year. Our best David and Jacqui

Beautiful and immaculate!

  • 5 of 5

David was the best host and made us feel very comfortable in his beautiful brownstone. The third floor penthouse was absolutely amazing and very, very clean. It was so comfortable and quiet. David was so very helpful providing us a map to the city and great suggestions for places to visit and eat. We had a wonderful time. Thank you David!! I will be sure to stay in your lovely house again someday! You made us feel very welcomed. We had an amazing time!

David and his wife were so welcoming and able to answer any questions. They are set up such that we could let ourselves in and out with our own keys. It was fun to stay in a brownstone.

Lovely Brooklyn brownstone, super hospitable proprietors

  • 5 of 5

We stayed five nights in two suites, one on the ground floor, one on the third. The ground floor apt is better for the fabulous kitchen and the back garden. "PEnthouse" is a bit of a stretch for the third floor suite, whose kitchen is a bit cramped (and watch that nasty Protruding corner on the range hood). Hosts David and Jacqui Gazowski could not be nicer or more enthusiastic about their 'hood, Bed-Stuy. It's a four block hike to the A/C subway lines, and you're fifteen minutes from Manhattan. We took David's advice on a nearby restaurant and were not disappointed. Five stars for ambience alone!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The flat is great: very clean, really well located to the subway station, close to a couple of grocery stores and coffee shops. Area felt very safe. David and Jacqui were clear in regards to arrival and departure, were easy to communicate with, provided a lot of information about the flat and the neighborhood, and continued to check in during our stay. Very pleased and happy we chose this accommodation - my family and I had a wonderful time here.
