Overview

About the property

FULLY FURNISHED AND READY TO GO. THIS SPACE IS VERY LARGE AND VERY COMFORTABLE

This is a brand new 3 bedroom apartment with another identical 3 bedroom apartment above it with all new King size pillow-top mattresses, new furniture, beds and electronics. It has all new Central Air conditioning/Heating as well. Their are flatscreens in every room. The doors of the apartments can be left open to go up and down through apartments as the group will be the only ones in the building. The property has a park across the street and is located 2 blocks away from the subway and that subway takes you into the heart of lower manhattan in 15 minutes. Very convenient and the house was very nicely remodeled. Its perfect for larger groups of people to be able to stay together in comfort.

About Brendan McGeough

I am a local NYC firefighter and work myself in downtown manhattan. I rent out my house when I'm working a longer amount of time or I'm out of town

Brendan McGeough purchased this house in 2014

Why Brendan McGeough chose Brooklyn

The size of it and the location is only 10-15 minutes into the heart of lower manhattan.

What makes this house unique

The proximity to manhattan and also being in the suburbs. its so close to just jump on the train and be in the heart of mid-town within 20 minutes but still have the quietness of brooklyn at night!

It was ok

  • 2 of 5

We had a hard time contacting the owner to add an extra day to our stay that had already been booked. We had to email him over 3 months to add the day then try to pay for it. We got to the house at 7:30 because check in time is at 4. The cleaning lady had just been there a short while before us so we had to wait for her about 1 1/2 hours to finish. The owner allowed us to not pay for the added day because of this inconvenience so we appreciated that. We had to unclog the 3rd floor bathtub because it would not drain at all, but once we got it working everything was fine. I would suggest getting someone to help with the organization of booking and preparing for the guests with towels and extra linens since its suited for large parties. The house was very nice overall.

Just what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We were traveling with 9 high school students who were coming to NY to perform in schools, see performances and take class. This duplex offered us the flexibility of community as well as privacy. We were very comfortable. The beds are amazingly comfortable - you feel like a queen - hard to find comfortable beds when traveling. Brendan was responsive to our needs and helpful in directing us to the subway and to sandwich shops. There are 2 cute coffee shops just around the corner. After a day in the city, this duplex was a pleasant and comfortable place to return to. Also, the ability to make breakfast or cook whenever we did not want to go out was fantastic.

Very nice condo, great for a group

  • 5 of 5

My group and I really enjoyed our stay at Brendan's duplex. The place was spacious and the furniture and beds were clean and comfortable. The location is very convenient just a couple of blocks from Gates Ave subway station that will take you right into Manhattan. Would definitely stay here again next time I'm visiting the city with a group.

Careless, inhospitable host

  • 2 of 5

The accommodations met our physical needs, but {I would never recommend this property to anyone}. The owner was unresponsive to our inquiries by phone, voicemail & text once we got to New York and were unable to access the property at the time we had agreed upon for our arrival. He only eventually responded when HomeAway/VRBO contacted him on our behalf. Consequently, we stood out in the rain with young children for hours before this was resolved.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry if none of your group admitted to not getting an email, but there was nothing i could do especially when i sent it too 5 people in your group. You should have checked them and also answered my phone calls when i called you about check in the few days before! I hope you enjoyed all the wine and free taxis I gave you in response to that even though it was not my fault that not one of you got an email that was sent multiple times. I take responsibility for my actions, when its my fault you should too!

good affordable lodging

  • 4 of 5

Lots of bedrooms, comfortable beds, kitchen was nice. There were not enough mirrors in bathroom, no full length mirror ,no hairdryer . It was clean but could have been cleaner, there was green glitter on floors .Lots of marks and scuff marks on wall and closets, needs to be painted . 2 blocks to subway stop . Front bedroom was noisy due to school across the street . Overall it was a good value for lodging .
