FABULOUS apartment; clean, warm, beautifully decorated. The photos don't do it justice. Kitchen and bathroom are great, bed is comfy. Yolande is easy going and friendly - you'll enjoy her relaxed hosting. The only downside is the distance from a subway station (door to door it was about 45 minutes into Manhattan) but in the summer it would be a nice walk. Groceries, fantastic bars, parks and cafés are all very close! Thank you Yolande. We'll recommend you to family and friends!!!
Ons verblijf bij Yolande is geweldig goed bevallen. Het appartement is ruim, sfeervol en authentiek wat maakte dat wij ons er direct prettig voelden. Het was iedere dag weer het gevoel van thuis komen. Ook de omgeving droeg daartoe bij. Het appartement is gelegen in een hippe, groene wijk met direct om de hoek een hele reeks leuke restaurantjes. 's Nachts is het er heerlijk rustig waardoor we sliepen als roosjes.
We hebben Yolande maar weinig gesproken doordat wij zelf de hele dag op pad waren en doordat het appartement zo is ingedeeld dat zij vooral in haar eigen privé ruimte verbleef. Wellicht hadden wij het wel leuk gevonden om iets meer contact te hebben en haar bijzondere tips te benutten. Maar als we elkaar spraken was ze altijd behulpzaam en vriendelijk.
Yolande's apartment is incredible, she has great taste and has made her home insanely comfortable and stylish. Its a great NYC experience. The room is large as is the bathroom and impeccably clean. Yolande interacts with you as much as you like and makes you feel comfortable to do your own thing while you are staying at her place.
Fort Greene is also a wonderful, leafy, quiet neighbourhood, Its great to come home after a day in Manhattan to somewhere a little more quiet, especially if you are staying in NYC for a while. Having said that, it's still is a vibrant area and theres lot of great restaurants, bars and cafes in the area.
In my case, I relocated to NYC for grad school and stayed with Yolande for a month. I felt very at ease, I was studying/working a lot and she was happy for me to do that from her place. We got along very well and I see Yolande as a new friend in New York that I will continue to stay in touch with. I highly recommend staying with Yolande, she's is a wonderful host.
Everything was perfect. The room and bathroom were exceptionally clean and comfortable and the neighborhood was beautiful and charming. Fort Greene is an excellent place to stay - close to the pharmacy and numerous shops and restaurants; only a short commute to Manhattan. Loved staying here.
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.
