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.

Very nice accommodation in a nice area.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very well equipped and nice decorated.

It is an a quiet, beautiful area with many groceries nearby and the subway is a 10 min walk away only.

The communication with the owner was perfect.

I would stay again and recommend it any time.

Excellent Location and Value for Money

  • 4 of 5

We spent 3 nights and it was comfortable. Our goal was to stay in Brooklyn and we fell in love with it.

Showering was a bit awkward as a hand held sprayer and the tub was a bit wobbly if you stepped in the wrong place.

There were more rules posted around than I am used to and we are avid vrbo travelers - although I do understand the reasons why owners must be specific and repetition does work.

Most importantly it was CLEAN - my main concern. Would stay again, absolutely.

Dejlig lejlighed tæt på undergrund

  • 4 of 5

Overordnet en rigtig hyggelig lejlighed, hvor alt fungerede og det hele var pænt og rent. Gaden er en utrolig hyggelig allé. Dog er resten af kvarteret ikke videre spændende. Det skal dog siges at vi kun "udforskede" området fra lejligheden til stationen (Kingston og Throop).

Var der 3 overnatninger med min kone og 3 børn i alderen 6-13 og havde en vidunderlig afslutning på en længere USA-ferie.

Nathalie er en sød og hjælpsom vært.

Lovely Apartment in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

Small but nice apartment in Brooklyn. Everything clean and very well organized by the owner. The neighborhood is safe and quiet at night. For us the only disadvantage was the quite long ride to manhatten (at least uptown), but maybe that was our impression because we are not used to such a big city like NYC. If you plan to stay in Brooklyn, book this apartment and you won't regret it! 100% recommendable!

Beautiful Apartment, great host!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was beautiful & the host was very sweet via email. She would randomly shoot out an email just to make sure everything was good :) We never met her but that was fine! The neighborhood is a little bit shady but maybe in a few years it will progress. The apartment is as described, open and airy and great decor! The only thing (which could not be helped) if you are planning on coming home late just be aware that the stairs are VERY loud and so is the bed in the living room (we hope we didn't disturb anyone) We had a great stay and recommend this apartment to travelers.

The photos do not do justice to this rental. The unit was fantastic and was a nice home of operations while in New York. Unit is convenient to subway and major roads. The owner was a fantastic host and made sure everything was up to standards expected.
