Our two employees' loved the apartment and area of David's apartment. They felt at home. The check-in and check-out was simple and easy. Thanks David!
We spent a very nice weekend at Davids apartment in Brooklyn. The pictures in the listing show the apartment as it is. We had family nearby so we were already familiar with neighborhood. The C train is about a 7-10 minute walk. The street was very quiet with plenty of street parking. We didn't get a chance to meet with David or Jessica (from Adina) but both left clear instructions on how to get in/out of the apartment. Jessica checked in on us several times to make sure all was well. It was. The whole process was very easy and I would definitely stay again.
David wasn't around personally, but had arranged great substitute hosts in Adina and Jessica. We met Jessica in person and she reacted adequatly, promptly and pleasant on our questions and requests. The place is well situated and great, and there's thought of many details: even a charger for electric tooth brushes is available!
Few minor points: the shower curtain could need replacement and the rugs should be taped to the floor again.
The neigbourhood is quit noisy, also in the evening (a steelband rehearsing every night!) and at night. But let's face it, if you can't stand noise, you shouldn't be in NY after all, should you?
The advertisement states you can use the garden (with a grill), but we couldn't figure out how to get there.... And we didn't made the effort, because we didn't feel the need to use it. But maybe the access to the garden could be made part of the house instructions.
Otherwise no other comments beside all honour and praise!
The apartment was wonderful! Getting to the apartment was very easy. Some of our group came via subway, some came into the airport and took a cab, and one person drove. In all cases, there was no problem finding the apartment.
This apartment itself was clean, comfortable, and more spacious than I had expected. There beds in both of the bedrooms were VERY comfy, and the couches in the living room weren't bad either.
The TV in the living room was a nice size, and the the WiFi was pretty good. The kitchen and bathroom were pretty nice as well. Overall, we enjoyed this apartment and would stay here again.
Had my Mum and brothers visiting from Ireland the hosts were extremely helpful and the apartment was just perfect for us
The apartment was exactly as described. Great hosts and a very smooth weekend in an ideal location. Would definitely stay here again.
We actually stayed in Adina's 3 bed apartment in Bed-Stuy - absolutely loved it! It was like a home away from home. It's on what we'd call in the UK lower ground and basement floors of a really nice brownstone on a really pleasant street, with good transport links, local cafés and bars. Very clean and comfortable with home comforts. I stayed with my sister and best friend for a week and we didn't want to leave. The check in and check out set up is very easy and Adina easily contactable. We were there in a chilly week in November and there was a problem with the central heating, Adina provided us with an electric heater for each room which solved the problem, and also kindly let us check out late for the trouble.
Would definitely recommend this place or any of Adina's properties based on this experience.
