Appartement très agréable et au calme

  • 5 of 5

Appartement parfaitement adapté pour 5 personnes (famille de 3 adultes et 2 ados). Très propre et bien entretenu. Vaste. Typique de Brooklyn. Avec un joli jardinet.

Soirées au calme après des journées trépidantes sur Manhattan. Appartement très reposant. Réveil tout en douceur avec le chant des oiseaux.

Propriétaire charmante et très arrangeante.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à NY. Merci encore.

Nous recommandons vivement cet appartement.

Roomy Brownstone with Garden

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a month. The location is good, near the subway and accessible by cab. It takes at least 30 minutes to get to Manhattan more if going uptown. However it is wonderful to get away from Manhattan. This is a neighborhood where people live and are friendly. Nice cafes and bars. Few evening restaurants. The owner, Louise is very nice and easy to work with if you need something. Close to Brooklyn Bottanical Garden, Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Museum. We will be coming back.

Ideal für eine Familie mit Kindern

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns von der ersten Minute wohlgefühlt. Das Haus ist über 120 Jahre alt. Für New York ist das schon eine Besonderheit, die den Charme des Hauses ausmacht. Die Küche ist ordentlich ausgestattet. Es gibt einen großen Kühlschrank mit Gefrierfach und wir haben jeden morgen an einem großen Tisch mit drei Kindern frühstücken können. Es gibt allerdings keine Dunstabzugshaube, so dass es nach der Zubereitung von Bacon etwas riecht. Da hilft: Fenster auf. Die Wohnung liegt in einer sehr schönen Gegend. Unsicher haben wir uns nie gefühlt. Wie beschrieben gibt es einige schöne Läden um die Ecke. Der Deli an der Ecke zu Haltestelle Prospect Park ist sehr zu empfehlen. Die Sandwiches sind klasse. Eingekauft haben wir an der Station "Atlantic Avenue". Da gab es alles. Nach Manhattan kommt man gut rein und auch nach Cony Island. Zum Airport JFK muss allerdings 2x umgestiegen werden. Da wir erst Abends geflogen sind, konnten wir unsere Koffer stehen lassen und später nochmals in die Wohnung. Ein klasse Service. Die Kommunikation war immer schnell und unkompliziert. Auch hierfür gibt es 5 Sterne. Den Garten konnten wir wegen der Temperaturen leider nicht nutzen. Im Sommer ist es aber bestimmt toll. Die Kinder konnten auch in der Wohnung toben. Wir können es nur empfehlen und würden die Wohnung einem Hotelzimmer jederzeit vorziehen.

Très bon séjour à Brooklyn

  • 4 of 5

La situation de cette maison est idéale, tout prêt de Prospect Park et d'une station de métro qui permet de rejoindre Manhattan en 20 à 30 minutes.

De plus, il y a des commerces ouverts 7/7 24h/24 à deux pas, très pratique quand on rentre le soir après une journée bien remplie.

La composition des pièces est agréable pour 5 personnes, la pièce principale est assez grande et donne sur un petit jardinet (dont nous n'avons malheureusement pas profité à cause du froid en hiver).

Louise, notre hôtesse est charmante, très agréable et très serviable. Elle a appelé pour le service bagages de Delta Airline pour avoir des nouvelles de nos bagages (récupérés 2 jours après notre arrivée).

Nous avons apprécié les restaurants que nous avait conseillé Louise.

En 2 mots : un très bon séjour.

Very good!!!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and confortable apartment. It is at the ground floor of a very nice brownstone house in a very calm street. Very well equiped, dishwasher, microway... You can enjoy the beatiful garden, it is nicer than you can see in the pictures. We where 5 persons and our stay was 8 days, not problems of space, it is very big, and very important, very clean. The only one thing not so good is there is not an extractor hood in the kitchen.

Louis is very helpful, she recommend you nearest restaurants and shops and all you need you can ask her.

Thank you very much, Louis.

We recommend this apartment.
