  • Yolande has got a really nice appartment in a very safe and beautiful neighborhood with a lot of brownstones and some nice shops and restaurants. Although a trip to Manhattan takes some time (it is not very close to the subway stations), it is always a pleasure to return to this area.

    Yolande was out or in her own room a lot and gives you enough privacy, but she is open to have a chat and give advice or help you out. This was very nice and helpful! You can use the kitchen and living room. The mattress is really good.

    Note that the bathroom is yours but not accessible from within your room, just two steps from the room though. Overall, we had a great stay and would definitely recommend it.

  • Yolande's apartment is gorgeous, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. In a fantastic neighborhood. Yolande herself is kind and lovely and welcoming. I can't say enough good things about her or her place. This was a fantastic experience.

  • Yolande's apartment is absolutely fantastic. Everything is beautifully decorated and very clean. The bed was comfortable, lots of space in the room, and you get your own bathroom. Yolande was very friendly and helpful. She had lots of great tips for things to do around the area and was willing to help out in any way. The apartment building itself is very nice, in a good area, with a doorman and an elevator (!). There are lots of shops nearby - supermarkets, dining options etc. It is close to BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) which has lots of great shows, and also close to the flea market on Saturdays. My favourite cafe was Smooch (suggested by Yolande) and The General Greene for salted caramel ice cream. There are a few subway stations in the area servicing different lines - all about a ten or fifteen minute walk. A cab into Lower Manhattan cost me about $15. I would definitely stay here again. I was sad to leave.

  • Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt! Yolande haben wir nur zweimal kurz gesehen, sie ist aber sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und antwortete sehr schnell auf Anfragen. Die Wohnung ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet, sehr hell und sauber. Die Schlüsselübergabe verlief unkompliziert über Portier. Die Nachbarschaft ist sehr entspannt, nett und sicher.

  • Yolande’s more than beautiful and tidy apartment is in a very pleasant, save and quiet neighborhood in Brooklyn/Fort Green – Manhattan can easily be reached by Metro. We (the hirable room is big enough for 2) actually didn’t meet that often during our stay, but she ever was an amiable and helpful host. We would highly recommend her place!

  • GREAT apartment and uber stylish as is lovely Yolanda, a fabulous host. Huge light filled room with 2 cupboards and a desk, perfect for laptop if you happen to be working... Private bathroom a bonus, close to great restaurants, bars, cafes, subway in tree lined streets of Fort Green. Super easy access to Manhattan by subway, Highly recommend!!

  • Yolande's place was gorgeous, clean, and quiet! Located in a gorgeous building and an amazing neighborhood. I was in town for work and barely at the apartment, so I never actually encountered Yolande (how crazy!)...but she kept the place incredibly tidy and was welcoming from the start.

  • Wonderful place in a great part of Fort Greene. Yolande is a very gracious host and her skill as a stylist is present in the aesthetic and atmosphere of the apartment, with every square inch thoughtfully furnished. Our paths rarely crossed as we were both out much of the time, but she was very helpful when I asked for information. Would highly recommend her apartment to those heading to NYC.

  • Perfect host, perfect place to call home whilst in Brooklyn. Yolande is one of those people you feel like you've met before. She has created a beautiful home, I really enjoyed my stay. Fort Greene is a great neighbourhood, with an abundance of cool cafe's, bars and restaurants. I highly recommend booking Yolande's place if you have the opportunity.

  • I absolutely loved Yolande's apartment and the neighborhood. The apartment is spacious, clean and beautiful. The room and bathroom are very comfortable. The neighborhood - Fort Greene - is my new favorite in New York. Full of restaurants, shops (quite a few organic supermarkets!), brownstones, parks and well connected to Manhattan. Yolande is a wonderful host, her presence being both comforting and discreet. Her great taste makes this apartment very suited for architecture and design lovers. I highly recommend it!
