A beautiful rental in Bed Stuy!

  • 5 of 5

A warm welcome awaits your stay. Your hosts, David and Jacque, provide an opportunity to experience a historic brownstone, while providing all the amenities you will need for your stay. In addition, the subway was very convenient.

Couldn't Have Asked For More!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I decided to book with Jacqui and David because of the stellar reviews they had received from previous renters. Sure enough, they're beautiful home was everything described and more. The apartment is in a phenomenal location in the cool Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn. David was happy to make plenty of restaurant recommendations, a few of which we checked out, and they were awesome! If we return to Brooklyn, we will be sure to stay with Jacqui and David again.

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!
