About the property


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!


Excellent! 4.5/5 -

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 .

Shocking Experience-

  • 5 of 5

I booked my reservation from September 10th to the 15th- This building consists of 3 floors, the owner lived on the first one and we had rented the second and the third floor. The second floor has 3 rooms and the third floor has 3 additional rooms for a total of 6 rooms. The place was extremely beautiful and well kept- everything was very high tech including air- restrooms- flat screens- kitchens had a marble finish with nice dark oak furniture. The owner moved out from his unit, he had done some renovations for several months now and allowed us to stay there the last night, the place was surreal, it was beyond beautiful and super fancy. It had 4 rooms, a back patio where you could grill, this unit had an additional room, it was double the size as the other 2 units and the master bedroom had an amazing restroom- with a large Jacuzzi and of course everything seem like marble to me. The faucets were high tech yet elegant . Ubers are great they are always in the area, the most we had to wait for one was maybe 6 minutes. We were out in the city all day and nights and ubers were never a problem- most of our drivers were from the area so it was great. Owner will now start renting his first unit, and when I go back to NY this is exactly where I want to stay. This place was better than my stay at the W in times square. Owner was kind enough to give us green light with everything/and anything that was in his kitchen since he was moving out. This included all type of drinks, ice creams, meats, beer. chips, you name it. We are beyond blessed to have found this guy, we learned he has different properties through the US and we would love to rent his other properties as we travel. HEY OWNER GUY, IF YOU READ THIS.... MY FAMILY AND I CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH-

The Rodriguez- Beltran Family.

Roaches, roaches roaches and bad neighborhood!!!

  • 1 of 5

Imagine going on vacation and finding that your vacation rental was infested with roaches! Horrible right? Well, this is what happened to me and my family after staying at on Madison Street, Brooklyn. There were roaches on the counters, cabinets, on ceilings, the stove, tables and even inside of the refrigerator! Please see attached photos of the infestation. Adding to my concern was that I have small children and one night there were roaches crawling on the wall above my daughter’s bed. The next morning, my son found roaches crawling out of his shoes. This was absolutely unacceptable! I notified the owner immediately and was told that he understood but that couldn’t get anyone out to exterminate for five days. So, my family and I were supposed to tolerate these living conditions 5 out of the 7 days of our vacation? Really? Not only, could we not store food in the refrigerator but we could not relax in a place that were to call home for our vacation. Instead we stayed down stairs on the second floor apartment that was rented my sister and her family. This was our, only saving grace. When, asked by the landlord what type of refund I was looking for? I replied the entire cost of the rental. He said “That’s un-reasonable!” I replied, what’s unreasonable is renting an apartment with roaches! If the landlord had stated, “there were roaches in the apartment”. I certainly would not have rented this vacation rental and neither would anybody else! Please be cautious and save yourself the grief and DO NOT RENT this vacation property! I gave this man all of my money to enjoy a week in New York and all my family and I did was worry about the roaches that invested the apartment we rented. I still have not heard from him since I asked for a refund. This is only reflects poorly on the owner AVOID THIS PROPERTY!!!!

I almost forgot to mention not only was the place infested with roaches, he provided me with the exact address only 2 days prior to our arrival not giving me much time to research the neighborhood. By the way the apartment is located in crime ridden Bedstuy (“Bushwick). The area is so shady taxi will not drive there and uber drivers are a little reluctant and void coming into the area as well.

So sorry I am not able to upload photos and text thread to this review due to reviews restraints.

Owner's Response: You book a house and stay the whole week even when there are supposed roaches in it??!! ...Im working with homeaway and the fraud department to investigate you and see how many other owners you have tried this with...Ive always heard about your kind of people on here lying to get a free vacation but never experienced frauds like you in life ever. Im sorry that there are people in this world like you who would come into someones home and do something like this just to try and get a free vacation. I never believed there was real fraudsters like yourselves around, all to try and get a free vacation. you should be ashamed of who you are as people!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had three families totaling 14 people. The apartments were well maintained, clean and great a location. Nice eclectic neighborhood close to the subway. Brendan was very helpful with arrangements for our bags as we spent our last day in Manhattan.
