  • We had a great week-excellent location in Brooklyn for supermarkets,shops and transport.easy access from JFK/La Guardia airports.

  • We loved our recent stay in the apartment. We had a few issues with a missing bag at JFK but I just called from the airport and they were very accommodating. The area was fantastic - it was great to actually be in New York and stay in a local area. The A train was awesome. We used it a lot to get to and from Manhattan. We also used the taxi service Achuziam recommended and that was good to. The bed was comfy, the apartment just the right size and very clean. We didn't really watch the TV but used the internet which was great. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!!

  • Wir waren 8 Tage in Achuziams Apartment zu Gast und es hat uns dort sehr gut gefallen. Wir kamen etwas früher als erwartet an, doch das war kein Problem, Lionel öffnete uns und brachte uns direkt in die Wohnung. Er war sehr nett und erzählte uns alles was wir wissen müssen, beschrieb den Weg zur Subway und ein bisschen was von de Umgebung, außerdem sagte er, wenn wir Probleme hätten, könnten wir uns jeder Zeit an ihn wenden. Das haben wir zwar nicht in Anspruch genommen aber da er und Achuziam im Erdgeschoss des Hauses wohnen, wäre es sicher kein Problem gewesen :)

    Die Wohnung ist ein bisschen kleiner als wir dachten, jedoch sehr gemütlich und hübsch eingerichtet. In der Küche stand alles zur Verfügung was man brauchte, obwohl wir eigentlich nicht gekocht haben. Im Schrank waren auch noch ein Paar Lebensmittel von den vorherigen Bewohnern (natürlich nur Dinge, die nicht so schnell schlecht werden) und es stand eine Kanne mit kaltem Wasser im Kühlschrank. Es gab genug Handtücher und in der Dusche standen sogar noch Shampoo und Duschgel bereit. Das Badezimmer ist schon klein, reichte aber für den Aufenthalt voll und ganz. Das Wohnzimmer war gemütlich mit Sofa und kleiner Essecke eingerichtet, außerdem stand eine Klimaanlage und ein Fernseher mit HBO zur Verfügung. Das Bett war ausreichend für zwei Personen, hätte allerdings auch etwas größer sein können :D Im Wohn- und Schlafzimmer sind genug Schränke vorhanden, sodass man alles verstauen kann.

    Alles in Allem war es ein sehr schöner Aufenthalt. In der Gegend brauch man wirklich keine Angst haben, wie ich es zuerst befürchtet habe. Wir sind auch nachts mit der Subway gefahren und zum Apartment gegangen und man fühlte sich sicher. Bei unserer nächsten Reise nach New York würden wir auf jeden Fall wieder kommen :)

    Viele Grüße
    Kim & Alex

  • We had a great time at Achuziams and Lionels place! Her cozy and clean flat was not only a perfect base to explore Brooklyn and his various, interesting neighbourhoods, but also to get to Manhattan, which can be reached whithin 15 minutes by subway.
    We can recommend this place for everybody who is not afraid of leaving the 'beaten tracks'.
