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.

Owner's Response: Over the last ten years, i have hosted people from all over the world,different cultures, different age groups which includes families with babies and families with octogenarian...Guests with special conditions or needs let me know before reserving: they ask questions, we speak about it and if i can ,i make special arrangements for them. If i cannot make them comfortable, i advise them and help them reserve somewhere else. Michael came in around 1pm and did not respect check in time. He canceled upon arrival because he said his weight does not allow him to climb the stairs . Michael has a physical condition that needs special arrangements. For example his wife and he absolutely could not fit a queen size bed nor the clawfoot tub. After climbing 30 short wooden steps inside the brownstone ,he was out of breath which is typical with obesity. He then claimed that it was the dirtiness. He also did not apreciate the multicultural side of the neighbourhood and did not feel comfortable with it. Bedstuy is 20mn away from Downtown Manhattan and is one of the most popular neighbourhood in Brooklyn. Reality state keeps climbing with brownstones selling near 3Million. People love it after a long day in Manhattan: it is quiet, locals are welcoming and the brownstone are simply gorgeous. Michael is saying the truth about one thing: i did not refund him. The location is on my page, the brownstone and apartment is clearly depicted. We also spoke about the distance in one of our conversation on the phone. He threatened me to leave a negative review if he did not get a refund. I decided to stand up for myself and not be bullied. Cleaniless is number one in this business. My housekeeper is the type of person that cleans the baseboards,hunts dust, launders entire rug... Once she is done it is like brand new . It amazes me each time. Most guests leave the apartment dirty which is what Michael witnessed by coming before check in time. (This apartment does not have any terrasse) La maison Des Sirenes is registered with NYC which authorizes me to collect hotel room occupancy taxes under section 11-2514 of the administrative code of the city of NY on less than 180 consecuyive days of occupancy. My main reason for hosting is to provide a real ,unique ,magic NY experience. I want people to be happy and I do everything for that purpose. In this case there is nothing i could have done better.
