Newly-refurbished, comfortable duplex 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. The apartment is huge and has FIVE bedrooms and two living spaces spread over two floors. 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.**
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 cable TV, 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!

This apartment was great, Jason and Jasmine were wonderful hosts, they were very accommodating to our checking in and out times. The area itself is vibrant, Carrizal Bar & Grill is a good spot to kick it for breakfast or dinner. Taking the J line was super simple and at times we took a taxi from LES, Chelsea or Soho which didn't take that long. Overall for a large group of people this apartment works out really well.
Thanks Jason & Jasmine, happy new year!
If you have a large group, Jason's apartment is very affordable. With that in mind, you are getting what you pay for. We had a ton of privacy which was nice but we also had some minor inconveniences that didn't take away from the trip but should be acknowledged.
- Jason seemed to be busy with work which is fine, but it was hard because we were roadtripping from Canada and the lack of access to him or Andrea left one of my friends to wait with her luggage outside the apartment for a while since she was flying separately. I also asked about parking several times without a response.
- The larger rooms on the main floor have AC Units in them which don't fit well in the window so there was major draft. The beds only had sheets so this was not sufficient for warmth at night. The heat was on but then just went right out the window above.
- There was an exhaust smell downstairs, maybe when the heat started, and it triggered respiratory issues with my friends who stayed downstairs
- The bathroom shower head needs to be replaced or cleaned because the pressure was off and the toilet handle comes loose which keeps the water running unless you wiggle it.
Overall, it was a place to sleep and it was relatively fine considering you'd be paying double for a place in Manhattan or you would not be able to accommodate a large group. We also had no problem with leaving our car on the street the entire 5 days we were there which really shows that the area may appear to be a bit sketchy but it's fine. The kitchen was super well-stocked as well which was nice for our group of 6. We had a great time in New York!
Thanks for the positive review Jessica. In response to the other points:
- The toilet handle has been fixed now and the water no longer fills
- The shower head has been replaced and there is great water pressure!
- The beds have (and always have had) blankets as well as sheets.
- The windows have been weather-proofed to provide extra insulation during
- Finally, I'm not sure what the "exhaust smell" was. I have never smelled
it and never
had any complaints about in the past.
Accueil sympathique, appartement spacieux et calme. 2 bémols : pièce de vie commune très petite et propreté laissant à désirer...
Our stay in Jason's apartment has been very pleasant and cozy. The apartment was spacious and beds very comfortable. In addition, the J subway stop just 5 minutes walk away and th connection to Manhattan very quickly an easy.
Jason was very helpful as it gave us great flexibility with the hours of check-in and check-out.
Really enjoyed our stay at Jason's place! Great location and was super convenient to get to the subway (just down the street) and just as close to Wal-greens and a Mcdonalds if you need to eat quickly. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit NYC. Thanks!!
The apartment is great. this well located. Is 2 blocks from the metro and 40 minutes from Manhattan. 3 of the 5 beds were comfortable . The sump should be repaired this detached from the floor. We did not turn on the heating . Everything else was fine.
Mr Jasson should have a little more attention to the phone and send messages durate two days before arrival.
The area is very quiet . I want to recommend much a local food and drinks served by two Latinos very friendly and attentive . are in the corner facing Walgreen and prepare a breakfast and sandwinch Excellent .
El apartamento es muy grande. esta bien situado. Esta a 2 cuadras del metro y a unos 40 minutos de manhattan. 3 de las 5 camas eran comodas. La poceta debe ser reparada esta despegada del piso. No nos explicaron como funcionaba la calefaccion. Todo lo de mas estaba bien.
El Sr. Jasson debe tener un poco mas de atencion al telefono y los mensajes que envie durante los dos dias antes de llegar.
La zona se ve muy tranquila. Quiero recomendar mucho un local de comida y bebidas atendida por dos latinos muy amables y atentos. estan en la esquina frente a Walgreen y preparan unos Excelentes desayunos y sandwinch.
Myself and 3 friends had a very comfortable stay here in September. The apt slept 4 easily and is really close to J and L train stations which got us where we needed to go in Manhattan pretty easily. Taking the J across the Brooklyn bridge at night was pretty cool!
Jason was a great host and was very helpful when our train into New York was majorly delayed and we turned up late.
Die Wohnung ist so wie beschrieben und auf den Fotos zu sehen. Jason und seine Frau waren hilfsbereit und immer ansprechbar bzw. haben zurückgerufen. Man ist schnell (30 Min.) Downtown Manhatten mit der J-/Z-Line. Mit dem Taxi gleiche Zeit für ca. 30 USD inkl. Tip. Kleine Supermärkte und einfache Schnell-Restaurants sind in 5 Min. zu erreichen. In der Gegend fühlten wir (4 Männer) uns sicher, jeodch ist es nicht die schönste Gegend. Die Wohnung geht für den Preis und New Yorker-Verhältnisse in Ordnung. Es ist eine sehr günstige Art in NYC Urlaub zu machen.
Nuestra experiencia en este apartamento fue muy buena. Nuestro tren llegó tarde y estuvieron pendientes por teléfono hasta que llegamos. La casa estaba muy limpia y con todo el menaje y la vajilla en excelente estado.
El primer día nos asustó un poco el barrio pero resultó ser muy tranquilo y seguro, en las tiendas te atienden estupendamente y por la calle te ayudan con las direcciones enseguida.
I ended up not staying at Jason 's house.
