Michael et Regina en plus d'être très sympathiques et très agréables sont des hôtes attentifs à notre arrivée jusqu'à notre départ. Ils ont beaucoup compté dans ce beau séjour par leur authenticité et leur gentillesse. Ils ont été très disponibles, présents et chaleureux. Pour un conseil ou une aide précise mais aussi pour la chaleur de la rencontre. L'appartement était très agréable situé dans un quartier calme très proche du métro ce qui est très pratique pour rejoindre Manhattan. Bref très heureux de ce séjour et Michael et Regina ont beaucoup contribué à ce bonheur car nous savions que nous pouvions compter sur eux par leur présence et leur attention.
Wir hatten einen super Aufenthalt in der Wohnung von Michael, sie ist genauso wie auf den Bildern beschrieben, man hat alles was man für einen Städteurlaub braucht. Die nächste Metro-Station liegt 3 Minuten zu Fuß weg, an der Straßenecke ist ein 24-Stunden-Lebensmittelladen, ein weiterer Supermarkt keine 50m weiter.
Die Wohnung ist allerdings sehr hellhörig, es gibt keine Türen zwischen dem Wohnzimmer und den beiden Schlafzimmern.
Michael steht einem jederzeit zur Verfügung und kümmert sich um alles wenn man etwas brauchen sollte.
The stay at Michaels apartment was pleasant, the apartment was big and clean. The queensize bed was really comfy.
The apartment wasn't completely separate, it was previously one huge 3 storey house and the apartment is located on the 3rd floor, Michael lives on the first two floors. It is not very clear from the pictures, but there are no doors in the flat (except the bathroom), so if you are a couple + someone else, noone gets much privacy. Also as it is an old house and we came in March (this March is exceptionally cold), the apartment was quite cold, mostly in the mornings. Another disadvatage of an old house are holes in the wooden flooring, through which a mouse used to come out. We have nothing against animals, but for some people this may be a big problem :-) Although we asked for some mouse traps at the very beggining and we were promissed to get them, we didn't get any at all.
The location of the flat is great, it takes about 20-30 minutes to get to Manhattan and it is really close to both A and C trains. Also very easy to get to / from JFK airport. We got used to living in Brooklyn after few days and there were some really nice places to eat out and to do the shopping in the close neighbourhood.
Michael nous a tout de suite mis à l'aise par son accueil chaleureux. On sent tout de suite qu'il est à notre disposition et c'est bien. Nous avons pu garer notre voiture gratuitement devant sa maison ce qui nous a permis de faire des économies non négligeables.
L'expérience fut très bonne même si des progrès peuvent être fait sur le confort proposé (ustensiles cuisine, couvertures, chauffage etc).
Le quartier est calme pour voir que nous étions dans New-York et niveau sécurité il n'y a rien à redire.
Michael and his family went above and beyond being hosts. They helped my elderly father up the stairs each night and then moved us to the bottom apartment. The apartments were lovely and well equipped. I recommend that if your travels bring you to New York that you consider staying with Michael and his family.
Michael was a fantastic host. His son, Michael Junior was always ready to help me and my daughter to bring our suitcases to the third floor of the building. Also, when my daughter's friend suddenly decided to visit her from out of town, Michael was very accomodating
The apartment is great - large, full of light and character. The extra heater warms up the place on the cold nights.
The location could not be better - A and C trains within 10 and 6 minute walk. The neighborhood is lovely. We felt welcome and safe.
I encourage Michael to make the few small changes that Sandra, the reviewer of the apartment in November 2014 suggested. Also, I wish I would have known that the two bedrooms do not have doors, since my adult daughter and I each wanted privacy, discovering that bedrooms do not have doors was a bit of surprise.

About the Host, Michael
I own several brownstones in Bedford Stuyvesant I love restoring these rare and beautiful works of art. My family and I live in the property. I Love Bedford-Stuyvesant for the many brownstones (each one unique in its own way) and the diverse community of people, but don't just take my word for it, come and see for yourself... you will be happy you did.
