The Space

The house we live in is brand new built that has 3 apartments.. we are on the 2nd floor (US) or 1st floor (UK) :)

Sometimes if surf forecast is good- I am trying to go to the ocean for surfing but only on weekends early in morning... you can join and I can teach you to surf. :)

I am Latvian and my wife is Turksih/British so we are able to speak to you in Latvian, Russian, Turkish and English of course.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Accueil très sympathique et convivial pour les trois nuits que nous avons passées chez Oskars et sa famille. Chambre et salle de bain plus que correctes et très propres. Oskars est toujours prêt à rendre service et donner des conseils. Le quartier est très agréable, pratique et facile d'accès. Nous conseillons grandement cette adresse pour un séjour à NY.
    Merci encore à Oskars, sa femme et sa fille !

  • Oskar and Oznur are such delightful hosts and their daughter Ela is such a cute and charming baby. They made us feel welcome right away. They were warm and very nice to talk to. The house is very clean and the neighborhood is great. They were easy to communicate with and answered our queries right away. Very helpful!!! We had a very pleasant stay with them.

  • I almost passed on this place because it's a little out of my budget but I'm very glad that I booked the room at Oskar's apartment for my trip in the end. The bedroom very clean and all photos are true as pictured! (so are reviews!) Oskar and Oznur were extremely accommodating during my stay with them, and was generous in sharing their apartment to a stranger. They were very welcoming, offering me tips for food places within the neighbourhood, and coffee in the morning. :)

    The apartment is located in a good neighbourhood, between two subway stations, it makes it pretty easily accessible to most places, and theres a bunch of food places nearby. I felt safe walking back at night, which is definitely a plus point if you're a female and traveling alone. I would definitely recommend Oskar's place.

  • Our stay with Oskar and Oznur was lovely. Their 10 month old daughter, Ela, is very cute. Their apartment, located in the Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn is conveniently accessible via Subway train. We enjoyed drinking tea and conversing with Oskar and Oznur in their living room, they are a very nice couple and provide a welcoming atmosphere for their guests. It was a pleasure to stay in their home and give them a high recommendation for their cleanliness, and excellent hospitality.

  • Our first experience with AirBnB couldn't have been better!
    The room is big, warm, well lit and spotlessly clean, with a big and comfortable bed. The bathroom is large, with a shower stall bigger than ours! Oskar and Oznor (not to mention their adorable little girl, Ela!) are two wonderful hosts, always helpful and full of advices, who always made us feel comfortable.
    The area is well connected to Manhattan (subway lines G and C) and is full of supermarkets, takeaways and places to eat. There is also a great bakery, right around the corner.
    If you're looking for a cozy, comfortable and clean place away from Manhattan's bustle but still well connected to the City, well, you've found it!

  • Oskar and his wife were very welcoming and gave to me some good advices about the city. They are living in a very nice flat and well furnished. The bedroom is very confortable with a nice queen bed to sleep and a private bathroom.

    Then to visite the city, it's a very good place because the flat is located in the heart of Bedford Stuyvesant in Brooklyn and very close to the subway.

    So I recommend this place for every one who would like to stay some nights in NY.

  • It was great staying at this place. Very comfortable. The hosts were nice and very helpful. Will definitely stay again given an opportunity.

  • Oskars Eiduks is an excellent host. Our bedroom and bath was delightful and immaculate. The Eiduks are a gracious and charming couple. We enjoyed our conversations over tea and coffee. Oskars helped us figure out the best way to get to places in Brooklyn, NY. We felt as welcome and comfortable as a guest in their home, which we were!

  • I had a wonderful time at Oskar's place! He and his wife were really helpful and kind, giving directions how to reach the appartment, suggesting places to eat, places to visit... I immediately felt at home in the beautiful appartment..I slept like a baby and very much enjoyed the shower in the huuge private bathroom. Wish I could have stayed more time with Oskar, his wife and their cute daughter Ela, because I sensed we had a lot in common and many subjects to talk about. I would definitely recommend Oskar and his appartment if you are looking for a place to sleep in NY!!! And, would of course choose their place when I come back myself:-)

    January 2014
  • Holidays at Oskar's apartment was very pleasant and enjoyable, the room is large as well as the bathroom. It 'was especially nice chat with him and play with his sweet daughter while preparing cups of tea or coffee.
    then the apartment is located in a very quiet neighborhood, conveniently connected to the city center by subway a few meters away.
    if I come back to New York is sure to be the first choice in terms of comfort and courtesy. I would definetly recommend it!!
