Prime Brooklyn location private house close to restaurants, subway and shopping
My wife and I both enjoyed good food, cooking and shopping. I work for law enforcement and my wife is a CPA
Maxz purchased this House in 2008
Why Maxz chose Brooklyn
We love this house for its prime location to all! The R train is within walking distance. Commute to lower Manhattan usually takes 30 minutes and Mid Manhattan 45 minutes. And if you'd like to venture to Staten Island, New Jersey, the Verrazano Bridge is also nearby. Please note that there is no parking onsite but street parking or paid garage parking are both available. This is the second floor of a two family house. The total floor space is around 800 sqf. You have full access to the whole second floor apartment, including two bedrooms, sitting room, kitchen with microwave, refrigerator and essential cooking utensils and dishware, bathroom and the office room. There is wifi access and wireless TV for your entertainment. There is the Shore Road Park 6-7 blocks away from our house, you'd fall in love with the sunset view and taking a jog along the shore will be a guaranteed memorable experience. We love the location so much that we decided to invest in another property in this neighborhood. As we enjoy being a host, we'd like to put up our house with HomeAway and share that wonderful living experience with you!

"YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR"
THE STAIRCASE GOING UP TO THE APT, IS VERY STEEP AND YOU CANT HOLD YOUR LUGGAGE ON YOUR SIDE.
THE A/C IN THE LIVING ROOM IS A PORTABLE UNIT, NOT AS LISTED. DOES NOT COOL OFF THE LIVING ROOM.
THE SHOWER PRESSURE IS NON EXISTENT. AND DIFFICLUT TO WORK. THERE IS A SMELL IN THE BEDROOMS. LIKE YUCKY. THE FREEZER HAD LEFT OVER PITA BREAD,
NO COFFEE MAKER. AND THE BEST......THE BOTTOM DOOR HAS A TWO SIDED LOCK, WHICH WAS NOT LOCKED.
BUT IT CAN BE, BY THE OWNER. THATS A FIRE HAZZARD.
OUR STAY WAS FOR 6 DAYS..... WE WALKED AFTER 2 DAYS.
CLOSE TO SUBWAY AND BUSES, AND FOOD STORES.
OPPS THE OWNER REQUEST THAT YOU TURN THE A/C OFF IF YOUR OUT PAST 2 HOURS,
I WOULD NOT RETURN.
Hi Mr Larry,
We are sorry and surprised to hear that our lovely home did not meet your expectations. Throughout our communication with you from the first day you checked in till the day you checked out, you didn’t mention any issues listed above, and the last message you sent us on 8/27 after checkout (I quoted) was “ Thanks for such a clean and nice apt. All is perfect”. We attached a screenshot of that phone message in our property photo album as proof. The stairway is standard and wide enough to carry up our big leather sofa (one in the living room, also in our property album ). The A/C in the living room is 14000 btu new unit we purchased in less than 1 month so yes it’s working with no issues unless you didn’t turn to the right setting. The shower pressure is strong and functioning properly like usual unless you didn’t turn to one of the 3 right positions. Not sure about the smell in bedroom you mentioned, all our bedrooms are clean by professional housekeeper and smell fine. The coffee maker is located in the kitchen cabinet. The pita bread in the freezer is brand new in original bag, not leftover, meant to be complimentary breakfast for new guests. One of the bottom doors is not locked so it’s more convenient for guests access, but every guest still needs a code to enter the second door. Most issues you listed are not issues at all if you called and asked, but you didn’t. You checked out earlier because you said “your mission is over and you have to go” (also in the phone message screenshot). We have been hosting for 3 yrs and always maintain high standard for all guests, which consistently shows on all other guests’ reviews.
Great Place to Stay
This was my second round for me at.this apartment and was just as good as the first. The hosts go out of their way you and the area is quiet yes minutes away from everything. For me, a re-located Brooklynite who comes to visit, I would have to say I would not want to stay anyplace else ( and I was there 10 days!). I will be back.
One week get away in Brookklyn, New York
Impromtue trip to NYC to see my son, Stayed in this lovely apartment on second floor of home in the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn. Very clean and quiet. All amenities are provided, and the owners are beyond lovely and cooperative. I would recommend this home and would come back on my next visit. It is very conveniently located to all reasonably required services and transportation.
Hi kathy, you are welcome! For returning guests , we will have special discount. Hope to see you again!
What can I say.. it was perfect. So much better, than any hotel and I travel a lot.
The hosts were courteous, accommodating, and the place was spotless. The neighborhood was quiet and no issue at all parking. Just around the block was everything you would need: eateries, a gym, supermarket, and an inexpensive parking lot ( that I only used twice in 10 days). I will definitely be back. In short, my experience here was a 10 out of 10.
Very lovely place to stay at!!
So many paces to eat around the neighborhood and very close to many shops!
Great apartment, well located
Clean, quiet, roomy apartment on second floor of two family house. Great beds/bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and tv. Well stocked apartment, very well located. Great AC system. We would use again!
