Overview

About the property

Two Bedrooms, One Bathroom, Sleeps 5

Due to the high demand on la maison des sirenes 1, I decided to offer another apartment. This is La Maison des Sirenes 2 ,same house but on the top floor (4th floor) of my brownstone.

It is located in one of the most coveted block(tree lined)of Bedstuy. It features a master bedroom (luxury Vera Wang queen size mattress) , a guest room with a twin size daybed coming from another world, an antique bathroom, a complete Tuscan kitchen, dining room and living room. The apartment is very bright, light is coming from every sides and ceilings (skylight).

The apartment was decorated with taste and I meticulously picked every single piece of furniture myself. Some of the furniture’s come from abroad and have many stories to say on their own. Some other has been collected for years and stored in my apartment waiting for the perfect place to be.

feel free to look at my other listing on homeaway .the property number is 171767

Bedstuy used to be known for its motto 'do or die' . Not anymore!!!! Now it is best known for its incredibly beautiful Brownstone. It was fearures recentlt in the Time Out magazine as ' one of the best neighbourhood ' of NYC.The strong community and abundant beautiful brownstone townhouses contribute to its growth and charm. New cafes,restaurants,bakeries ,boutique ,galleries nd wine bars are sprouting everywhere receiving much attention by Zagat, time out,NY magazines and blogs. A diverse mix of students,hipsters,artists,crative professionals,architects and attorneys of all races continue to move to the neighbourhood.

The area is serviced well by the A abd C train with commute times 15 mn to lowervManhattan and 30 mn to midtown.(times square).

Bedstuy was home to famous artists such as Notorious BIG,Lil Kim,Mos Def,Chris rock,,poet June Jordan and activist Hattie Carthan. Bedstuy streets are often represented in media : Spike lee movies, MIA music video.....

There is a strong sense of pride being part of Bedstuy and being its pioneers.

Stay away from this at all costs

  • 1 of 5

We did arrive and the cleaning lady was finishing her job but nothing at all was how we expected this place to be. Extremely isolated and not in the best area of Brooklyn.

I immediately had an asthma attack and this usually takes place when I enter a room that has not been thoroughly cleaned for a long time.

The bathroom was hideous and the terrace had fast food trash.

I immediately called an Uber and left for a hotel. I did Try to stay as nice as I could and to give Nathalie a chance to work something with us and she completely refused. I would simply not have subjected my wife and two daughters to stay in this place. Pictures are extremely deceiving. And once you’ve paid don’t expect anything from the host.

One last note. Asking guests to pay for taxes cash is illegal in New York and in any other states. If you pay for taxes, you should not be asked to use cash only.

Nathalie made it very easy to check-in. Sorry we never had a chance to meet but the apt was very clean, bright and airy, and spacious. I definitely recommend this place.

Loved the place!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here in July 2017. The unit was perfect. Clean, comfortable, well stocked.

The bed in the master bedroom was unbelievably comfortable. We were there in July and the air conditioning was a major bonus....it was really hot out.

Nathalie (the owner) was there if we needed her and not there if we didn't. The subway was a 5-10 minute walk with a 30 minute ride to Manhattan. The neighborhood was safe enough that walking home from the subway late at night was not a problem. On street parking was SO EASY!

I will be returning to Nathalie's property again soon!
