About The Owner

We are business owners/designers who have lived in the neighborhood with our family for almost 10 years. We love the quiet on our block and the small town feel - yet happy that we're a stones throw from Manhattan and walking distance to some of Brooklyn's best and most vibrant restaurants, performance spaces, bars and cafes.

Beautiful home, clean, super friendly and helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

A colleague of mine and I were attending a workshop in NYC and chose this place to stay. It was super clean, such a CUTE and NICE kitchen. We loved our stay! It even has an adorable private garden off the back, which we definitely took advantage of on a warm summer night.

comfortable house in pleasant neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this property for three nights with three teenagers. It was nice, quiet and comfortable with a lovely backyard and easy access to Manhattan, although the L train did play some tricks on us.

Loved this Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was very clean. The beds were very comfortable. The neighborhood was very nice even late at night. I liked how we were very close to a grocery store and the subway. They were very quick to answer my questions. My kids and I wished we would have stayed here longer. Next time I come to New York I want to stay here again. :) Patti

Great apartment, a real "Bijou"

  • 5 of 5

We had six nights at Brooqlyn Guest House. It's very cosy and charming. Everything you need is there. The kids loved the extra bedroom with the booth.

Because I'm a bad sleeper, the first night I was a bit concerned about the noise from the road at the corner. But after it was pretty quiet. Due to the old wood construction you hear the neighbours upstairs quite loud when they walk around. But you get used to it and they were very careful. What could be really nice, is black window blinds, that it gets darker in the bedroom.

The hood is save but it takes longer to the subway than we thought. So with the kids we took a uber back home at night, which is around 23$ from midtown Manhattan.

The check-in is very well organised. All in all I can warmly recommend it.

PS: there is a fantastic Cupcake store at the corner. Try it!

Great place, we enjoyed our stay...but it's not in Brooklyn

  • 4 of 5

We were traveling with 3 adults and a 15 year old, it was a great place for us all to have our own space. The management was good about clear communication and we had no issues during our stay. Mostly all is "as-advertised," but the location seemed to be a bit fudged. The place is in Ridgewood Queens, which was a nice enough location, but it's advertised as Brooklyn. I'll even admit that maybe I overlooked that fact in reading the description while comparison shopping, but I felt the ad tries to throw you off the trail of it being in "Queens." Other than that, we had a pleasant time in the nice, safe, family friendly neighborhood. We walked up to the local cafes and grocery store for breakfast and coffee.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed the local gems of our neighborhood. As we make clear to all our guests, our apartments straddles the border between Brooklyn and Queens (indeed the guest apartments were built in Brooklyn and the border was adjusted by a couple of blocks some years ago) — this is why our apartments appear on both Brooklyn and Queens-related searches on HomeAway. Since our subway station (7 minute walk) and the local cafes, restaurants yoga studios etc. (3 to 10 minute walk) are pretty much all on the Brooklyn side of the border, we feel much more a part of Brooklyn than Queens. That said, ours is quieter, prettier and greener street than the more bustling parts of the neighborhood. We like to think of ours as a "best of both worlds" experience, the perfect mix of a peaceful block right next to the restaurants and cafes of this artistic and vibrant Brooklyn neighborhood... not to mention a short subway ride to the busy, bustling sites of Manhattan! We're so happy you enjoyed your stay, and hope to welcome you back on your next visit to the city.

Car: not necessary

Straddling the neighborhoods of Bushwick, Brooklyn and Ridgewood, Queens, the apartment is 5 blocks away from the Dekalb Street 'L' train station in Brooklyn—one of the best subway lines in the city. Union Square, the heart of downtown Manhattan, is only 15 minutes away via a direct subway ride; Williamsburg, Brooklyn's stylish boutiques, bars and restaurants are only a 7 minute train ride away.

Ours is a quieter, more residential neighborhood, but it is in an exciting stage of growth. In the last 5 years there has been a huge influx of artists and creatives in our immediate area. As a result, there is now a solid (and rapidly growing) number of stylish cafes, restaurants, wine bars, art galleries, yoga studios, and a great 24-hour gourmet/organic grocery store all within a 10-12 minute walk from the apartment. There are also local Italian bakeries, Halal butcher shops, Equadorian bodegas, Polish food markets and the best tasting Mexican tamales we've ever come across. All relevant information can be found in our Guest Welcome binder in the apartment and we hope that you will explore these local gems during your visit.
