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.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults stayed here over the Christmas holiday. Everything was great! Comfortable beds, tons of towels, TP, kitchen well stocked, and the location is awesome! Minutes to the subway & grocery stores/Target. Stephanie was very responsive to my questions & needs. I highly recommend Bergen Bagels....:)

Great property and location

  • 4 of 5

Great location and property for our visit to NYC. The subway was very close as well as some great restaurants and access to groceries. Our family loved having our own spaces to relax in the evenings. The owners were super friendly and helpful - as well as available if we needed them.

Wonderful is not enough!

  • 5 of 5

Don't hesitate for a nano second! I do not have one negative thing to report! I had been looking for a 3 bedroom place in Brooklyn for many weeks and my husband finally said, just book a place already! I replied that I wasn't feeling it yet and when I do, I will let him know. Well a few days later, when reviewing this place, I felt it! The place was immaculate, extremely well equipped, even to the point of having cute plastic, dishware and cutlery for children. All items in the place were above average quality and photos are perfectly indicative of what you see is what you get. Stephanie was wonderful, helpful and very pleasant. Everything functioned perfectly, kitchen and bathroom had been completely renovated and water pressure was excellent! Great neighbourhood close to subways and the Barkley Center. Lots of restos and bars with a warm and very safe community feel. Parking readily available on the streets. We came from Montreal and left our car in front for 3 dAys without incident. Don't hesitate if this place appeals to you. Book it! Thank you Stephanie for such a wonderful experience for our first time with VRBO! We will be back and will continue to refer and recommend your place!

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!
