  • A lovely place to stay in Brooklyn. Everything in the suite was comfortable, upgraded and extremely clean. Across the street from the subway and near a great variety of restaurants, delis etc (Runner and Stone on 3rd ave was a stand out). We will definitely stay there again the next time we're in Brooklyn.

  • Just returned from NYC and had a great time staying in the Exquisite Master Suite! Park Slope is and amazing area with great restaurants and shops and the apartment is conveniently located right by the subway station with very easy access to Manhattan. The apartment itself was extremely clean and beautifully decorated and we even had coffee, tea and yogurt for the mornings. Great spot, great hosts and the best neighbourhood!

  • I stayed at Marie and Richard's place with my girlfriend for four days and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The home is extremely clean and tastefully furnished. Although there's no kitchen, they do provide a mini-fridge and a Keurig coffee/tea maker. We wanted to enjoy the local restaurants so a kitchen wasn't necessary. The home is beautiful and what you see in the pictures is what you'll walk into when you first step inside. The bed and the chairs are all very comfortable so you won't be at a loss for a good place to rest in-between all the sightseeing you're bound to enjoy. As hosts, Marie and Richard were quick to respond to our questions and had lots of good hints on places to go for food and shopping.

    The home is in a very safe neighborhood and is literally right across the street from 3 different subway lines. There's a slight learning curve to the NYC subway system but once you've got it down, you'll be thankful that not only is the station 20 seconds from the front door, but you also have multiple lines to choose from. The neighborhood has lots of cool independently owned and operated shops and restaurants. 5th and 7th avenues, Union, and Flatbush are all streets we recommend taking the time to explore. It'll be a nice break from all the corporate chains located in Times Square.

    We definitely plan on coming back to do all the things in NYC and Brooklyn we didn't have a chance to do. When we do return, we're planning on putting Marie and Richard's place at the top of our list as it truly felt like a home away from home.

    Phillip,
    You are truly gracious, a rare trait. Thank you for the detailed review highlighting all the advantages of staying with us. All the best to you and Amy.

  • Despite the snowy weather, we had a wonderful time at Rie and Richard's place in Park Slope. Richard deserves kudos for keeping the walkway and stairs snow free and well-salted, a job he needed to do frequently while we were there!
    Our place was clean, comfortable and so close to the subway that I am still amazed that I never was aware of noise from the tracks!
    Rie and Richard were wonderful about orienting us to our place and also left a concise book covering details about the place and about the area around us. The apartment is well situated for exploring Park Slope as well as getting into Manhattan.
    Great attention to details: coffee maker, yogurt in the refrigerator, and Rie was kind enough to have half and half for my morning coffee. Comfortable bed, incredible soaking tub and delightful sitting room. Even a much used mudmat for our wet boots, right by the door!
    It was a delight to come "home" every night to such a wonderful place. I can't recommend it (and our hosts) highly enough!
    We would love to come back and explore more when the weather is nicer!

  • I greatly enjoyed my stay in Brooklyn with Marie and Richard. They are wonderful hosts and the apartment is spacious and comfortable. Although there is no kitchen, they provided a coffee machine and fridge stocked with yogurt for the mornings and beyond that there is so much great food in the neighbourhood that there is really no need to cook. The bedroom is in the back and very quiet and the apartment is perfectly located for exploring Brooklyn and the rest of New York. The subway is right across the street. Marie and Richard made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. I hope to stay with them again soon.

  • This place was so pretty and cozy! We loved the elegant interior, and it was so close to transit, too. Rie and her husband were so sweet and accommodating, even texting us to warn us the stairs were icy one morning after a freezing wet night. We really enjoyed our stay here, and absolutely loved the location, too!

  • I really enjoyed my stay here. The apartment is both comfortable and attractive. The location is perfect -- across the street from the subway & a short walk to a lot of bars and restaurants on 4th Street. And Marie and Richard were excellent hosts. Highly recommended.

  • Ce petit appartement est parfait pour un petit séjour touristique à New-York : en très bon état, joliment meublé et décoré, bien équipé (salle de bain nickel, lit confortable, wifi, télé), situé à proximité de commerces et à 10m d'une station de métro pour aller directement à Manhattan (ligne F), bref pas grand chose à redire...
    Et en plus, les hôtes, Marie et Richard, sont très sympathiques et prévenants.

    Nous y avons passé une semaine pour le nouvel an et c'était vraiment une expérience très positive, à recommander sans hésitation !

    Response from Rie:

    thank you Dorothee for the kind remarks. For English readers I'll clarify that 3 subway lines, the R, F and G are directly across the street (10 meters from our door). You can get anywhere in Manhattan quickly using one of these lines. That's one of the many things guests love about our suite.

  • What a wonderful place with the most accommodating hosts.The location was ideal and the rooms lovely.

About
An explorer of places, experiences and ideas. I fell in love with Park Slope and count myself fortunate to live here. Our 110-year-old Brooklyn rowhouse reflects the assiduous care taken to give it 21st century comforts with the relaxed charm of a family home. My husband Richard, a stage and film actor, is the mayor of our block - he loves to chat with passersby and their dogs. He and I have traveled in Asia, Europe, Latin America and hiked many US states. Now we explore the boroughs of NYC to discover the treasures, secrets and delicacies of other neighborhoods. That's how we find exciting and delightful things to share with our guests. A researcher by nature and profession, I enjoy finding what's new, fun and satisfying.
