Clean, Clean, Clean - Great Brooklyn Neighborhood Location for Restaurants/Transportation to NYC

  • 5 of 5

Eight days here with one son's family for the other son's wedding. Clean apartment with great easy to work with owner. Grandkids had space to play and be kids. Close to everything like Park Slope, Parks, subway transportation to everywhere especially NYC from Atlantic Terminal, grocery store, very good local restaurants like DSK, Emily's and Speedy Romeo are worth a look. Kitchen is small but well provisioned with utensils and small appliances. We will stay here again when we visit our son.

Ideal location, comfortable apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable three bedroom basement apartment in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, close to 3 subway stations, shopping centre, minimart, bagels. Stephanie was very helpful, especially when my daughter left her hard drive connected to the TV. We (family of 6) felt very safe there, took the subway to Manhattan within 20 minutes, and went the other way to beautiful Prospect Park too. So much to see - all so close. Great base for a New York holiday.

Comfortable and ideally located

  • 4 of 5

Stephanie and Justin were the perfect hosts. The appartement was also perfect for us, a family with two teenagers. It had everything we needed for a one week stay. Very well located near subway, with direct trains to Manhatten, and lots of local shops within walking distance.. We will be back!

So well equiped and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Travelling to New York from Australia with our 4 children aged 15 to 8 it would be fare to say we were a little bit nervous! Stephanie was very responsive to all my emails prior to the visit and gave great advice on options for transport from the airport. When we arrived at the apartment it was so warm, welcoming and spotlessly clean on a cold New York night! The layout of the apartment was perfect with a king, double, single and trundle beds in the three bedrooms. The bedrooms are close together but that was not an issue for my family. The apartment was well equiped with everything we needed and the washing machine and dryer was great for a family staying for 7 days. The best thing about the apartment was location. Away from the madness of Times Square but only a 2 minute walk to a big subway station that allows you to get anywhere! Fantastic restaurants and shops within walking distance and we all felt very safe walking in the area and using the subway at night. This really is the perfect location and accomodation for a family travelling to New York. Hopefully we will be back and I would definitely stay here again.

We are located in Fort Greene, Brooklyn a hip historic brownstone neighborhood that is well known as a sought after happening place conveniently located with a very short subway or taxi ride to Manhattan (approx. 10 to 15 minutes downtown). In Fort Greene there are many shops, restaurants, fine food stores. Further the Brooklyn Academy of Music has 2 theatres where the finest plays, dance performance and music shows occur along with a cinema. If you come on the weekend don't miss the Brooklyn Flea famous for its food, vintage and new artisan goods! Finally we have a beautiful and relaxing park designed by the architects of Central Park!
