Newly-refurbished, comfortable apartment with a friendly, reliable host. The apartment is located on the border of Bushwick and the historic Bedford-Stuyvesant neighbourhood in trendy Brooklyn, only 20 minutes from Manhattan. Please note, that the apartment is private and will be all yours if you book.
If I don't have availability, please check my other apartment at the same location: http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/177868
It is genuinely 3-4 minutes walk from the subway (J train), or a 10 minute walk from the L train. It's a clean, sunny space with super-fast wireless internet and everything you need.
Clean towels and freshly ironed bed linen are also provided. The apartment is mice-proofed and bed-bug free, with metal bed frames and regular visits from the exterminator.
I'm a traveller too (originally from London), so I know what it takes to make people feel comfortable away from home. I also speak French, German and Portuguese and a bit of Spanish and Italian. I'll be around any time you need some help or advice. You are welcome!

3 minute walk to J train on Gates Av/Broadway

I stayed at this cool apt in Brooklyn when my family and I visited for 5 days from South Africa- Jason's wife Jasmine was there on our arrival and was very helpful and kind. The apartment slept 7 people comfortable and was in a convenient location. I will recommend this place and Jason to anyone visiting new york also the Bushwick neighborhood is very hip. :)
Jason and his wife were really flexible with check in/out times and tried to be as accommodating as possible.
We were, however, disappointed as the apartment was not what we expected. Photos seemed to display an apartment with 2 doubles & 2 singles (we had 2 doubles & a futon).
This apartment is definitely in Bushwick, and not Bedford-Stuyvesant. Although, it was a short walk to the train station. There didn't seem to be any cafes or restaurants in the surrounding area, and once at the train station, the city was a 35 minute journey.
We were staying for over 2 weeks and so struggled with the limited amount of sheets and towels available.
The apartment was clean and secure, regardless of a little wear and tear. We felt safe in the building.
Appartement très propre , confortable dans un quartier typique de (website hidden)évoir de remetttre quelques cuillers et verres manquants à notre arrivée pour les suivants.Merci Jason et Adriana.
Waow, my stay at Jason's appartment was great. We were 7 in there and there was plenty of space for everyone. Apart from the water pressure being too soft and the water taking a long time to get warm, everything was perfect.
The appartment was clean, the sheets were clean.
I was in contact with Jason's wife and she made sure everything went smoothly.
The J train station is very conveniently a 3 min walk from the apartment so it was very easy to get to manhattan.
I would definitely recommend this place !!!
I reserved Jason appt for 5 days with my family and friends (7 adults and a child of 2 years old).
We had an amazing experience ! My family appreciated his place.
The appart. is very close from the subway. Jason and his wife were very flexible. Rooms were clean and spacious.
I highly recommend this place if you want to visit NYC with your family. It's also a safety place.
Thanks to you and your wife for giving us an excellent experience in your appart. !
Definitely come again if I had to come back to Nyc !!!
Fernand & Nathalie.
We had a great experience staying at Jason 's place. He and his wife Jasmine were very helpful and responsive to our feedback.
Situated in Brooklyn, it's nice to discover the real New York life outside Manhattan at an affordable price. I would surely recommend the apartment to friends and family. We will be back, that's for sure!
Appart' correct. Sur les 3 chambres à coucher, l'une est très bruyante, une autre calme, sans clim' mais avec ventilateur et la 3e calme et avec clim'. Positif: emplacement avec facilité d'accès aux transports publics. Négatif: la propreté et le manque de produits de base (sel, poivre) pour cuisiner la moindre, d'autant que le quartier manque singulièrement de restaurants mais pas de fast-food.
Wij hebben een bijzonder plezierige tijd in New York gehad!
Het appartement was goed. Ondanks dat we pas toen we voor het appartement stonden hebben gebeld dat wij aangekomen waren kwam de eigenaar van het appartement binnen 15 min met de sleutel.
We konden er allemaal goed slapen. Gates ave is een prima straat. Alleen er lag nogal wat straatvuil. De auto kon in de straat worden geparkeerd. In de winkel op de hoek kon je goed boodschappen doen. Het is slechts enkele minuten lopen naar de metro. Het is wel handig om van te voren het metrosysteem te verdiepen. Als je weet hoe het werkt is het een prima systeem. In de metro was iedereen gediscplineerd en rustig. Voor 30 dollar per persoon kun je 7 dagen ongelimiteerd reizen. Erg handig! Je ziet dat in de buurt gewerkt wordt aan het upgraden van de gebouwen. We zijn vanuit Canada naar New York gereden. Je kunt via de expres- en de parkways heel goed met de auto naar Brooklyn rijden. Kortom mooie dagen met veel herinneringen!
bien dans l'ensemble et il y a le nécessaire d'urgence comme du papier wc et sel et poivre. Pas trop loin si l'on est prêt à compter 30mn ou plus pour se rendre au centre de Manhattan. Plus petit que ne le laissent apparaître les photos. Hôte absent sauf problème et arrangeant pour les arrivées et départs. Une chambre n'a pas de clim. Quartier ok mais son histoire, sa population et des infos sur place suggèrent qu'il vaudrait mieux éviter d'y passer la nuit. Suis rentrée tard d'un spectacle en famille sans encombre. Peut-on vraiment espérer mieux à moindre coût si l'on ne fait pas partie de la jet set ?
This apartment was easy to reach by subway from JFK, we were able to drop our suitcases and pick up the key before the check in time, which helped us a great deal, thanks Jason & Andrea! The weather was good so we headed into Manhattan to experience NYC. The J train is about 30 minutes to Lower Manhattan. On the plus side, the location is good, the air con works well (which we really needed), and it was as clean as I would have expected, On the minus side, the local area didn't seem to have many restaraunt/fast food places,you need to be aware that the apartment is up two steep and narrow staircases and the landing area was VERY smelly, presumably caused people dumping their rubbish their rather than complying with the many signs not to do such, it detracted a little, but that isn't Jasons fault at al! Overall we enjoyed our stay. Thanks Jason
