Olivia gaf ons een zeer welkom gevoel, haar man verwachtte ons en liet ons alles zien en weten wat we nodig hadden. Het appartement was zeer ruim, prima om daar met een gezin in te verblijven. De omgeving was prettig, op zondag hebben we de dienst in de Emanuel baptist Church bijgewoond en ook daar voelden we ons heel welkom. Bijzonder om mee te maken. Lekkere koffietentjes in de buurt en met de metro ben je in een half uurtje in Manhattan. Eerste dag gelopen naar de brooklyn bridge (3 kwartier lopen). Ik kan dit appartement aan iedereen aan bevelen.
ich bin mit meinem mann und meinen zwei töchtern (16 und 19 jahre) nach new york gereist und wir haben uns in dieser wohnung sofort sehr wohl gefühlt. geschmackvoll eingerichtet und sehr funktionell mit waschmaschine, trockner, spühlmaschine und perfekt eingerichteter küche versehen liegt die wohnung in einer schönen, grünen zone brooklyns. nette nachbarschaft und günstig gelegen nähe u-bahn station. weiteres befinden sich supermärkte und kleine nette restaurants in der nähe. nach einem ermüdenden tag in new york kehrten wir immer sehr gerne in die wohnung zurück und nachts konnte man immer sehr gut schlafen.
La description du logement correspond tout à fait à la réalité. Le logement est clair, calme et très agréable. Après une journée passée dans la chaleur et le bruit de Manhattan, nous avons apprécié la tranquillité du
quartier et du logement.
Le logement est à 3 minutes à pied du métro Classon Avenue ce qui permet de se rendre à Lower Manhattan en 30 min et en moins d'une heure sur la plupart des sites touristiques.
Olivia s'est montrée disponible et les échanges avant le départ et pendant le séjour ont été chaleureux.
Olivia’s apartment is as nice as it looks in the photographs. It is also spacious and comfortable with all the amenities you need in case you want to cook o stay longer in it which wasn’t our case as we were most of the day walking around New York. The neighborhood is quiet and people living there showed to be really kind and nice. There are many beautiful coffee shops and restaurants all around. We wanted to visit Manhattan but at the same time we wished to stay in a quieter place which made the apartment perfect for us. We only met Olivia on the first day as she was out on holiday but she and her husband were very nice and provided us with a place to leave our baggage while we couldn’t enter the apartment. She also provided us with her telephone number in case we needed anything which was not the case.
My mom and I stayed 10 nights in Olivia's apartment and it could not have been better. The apartment is on is very quiet We didn't have any noise problems and sleep well each night, ready for the next day out.
The location of the apartment is very good. It is not Manhattan but still close enough not to be spending too long catching the subway. It is only few minutes walk to the green line train and could change a couple stations down the line and be in downtown in less than 15 minutes.
In the neighborhood is a few little bar and coffee houses and food markets.
If I get back to New York, I would certainly be happy to stay in Olivia's apartment again.
Most importantly, Olivia and her husband Richard are two very accommodating people. They cater to every possible need of the guest. The apartment is in a very calm locality of south western brooklyn, well connected by train services from "classons avenue" stop. Although the frequency of trains is not as good on the manhattan or even other parts of Brooklyn, it was very convenient! The location is close to a lot of eateries and this gave us loads of dining choices when we were not sight seeing. We were 6 in total. 4 adults and twin infants. The apartment was spacious enough for all of us and this considering the running around of our "early toddlers".
Olivia went out of the way by providing cribs for our kids. She also provided us with a compact vacuum cleaner, on request, that helped us to keep the apartment reasonably clean. In spite of our busy schedule, she made it a point to visit us at least once on the day of leaving (she was on vacation for most of our stay period). This winter was particularly cold due to an upcoming "polar vortex" on the east coast of USA. This made the bigger bedroom chilly during nights. But, the adjustable climate control made sure that this was countered.
I strongly recommend this apartment for family of 4 adults.
My stay at Olivia's was excellent! The apartment is equipped with everything you need to feel at home. The area is very quiet and has great places to eat. Olivia is a very accommodating and gracious host. I would highly recommend her place to anyone who wishes to experience living in a true Brooklyn neighborhood!
