Bright and sunny, plant filled 1.5 bedroom, 1 bath apartment with additional convertible sofa on top floor of 3 story historic brick townhouse in BedStuy Brooklyn. Featured in Apartment Therapy. 4 express stops to Manhattan on J train (15 mins to Williamsburg, 20 mins to LES & SOHO)
J train to Halsey St (2.5 blocks)
C train to Ralph Ave (8 blocks)
The space was fantastic, very clean, and great natural light. Really enjoyed having cable when we wanted to just relax after walking around all day. Having never been to Brooklyn I was not familiar with the different neighborhoods, this was a bit too far for us. The location does require a train or cab to get to shopping and more eating options. (we had no problem getting transportation)
Clean, airy, and absolutely lovely. Great place to settle into after a long day, and the sunny windows make it easy to wake up. My only regret is not taking advantage of the kitchen and dining area while we were there, hopefully next time!
Nous venons de quitter l'appartement Urban Jungle et nous en gardons un merveilleux souvenir ! Tout est exactement comme sur les photos, l'ambiance est cosy, on s'y sent bien.
Le jour de notre départ, nous repartions que le soir et voulions profiter de notre dernière journée à New-York, on nous a gentiment proposé de laisser nos affaire dans le hall (sécurisé), le top !
Found the place (eventually) exactly as described, clean and very well appointed with everything required for a great short stay.
We just stayed at the Urban Jungle for two weeks with our children (3 and 5) . The apartment looks just as on the picture. We immediately felt at home. The J-train is less than 5 minutes walking distance, although the line does not run as frequently as other ones. Eric and the other persons I have been in touch with when I had certain questions (eg. to lower the heating, to have packages sent to the house) were all very accommodating and helpful and I always received a reply almost right away. In the neighborhood itself there is not much to do, but it's a quiet and safe area. If you are a tourist who'll be spending most of the time sightseeing and would like to stay in a cosy, spacious apartment for NY standards, this is the place for you!
Eric is a wonderful and responsive host. The apartment is very comfortable and truly meets every need. All the necessary amenities and great interior design. Eric also offered very helpful suggestions on the area surrounding the apartment, and checked in to make sure everything was ok.
We met a few glitches, but Eric responded to these problems immediately and with great consideration. When we first arrived, the apartment smelled like gas (which was a result of a small problem with the stove which was easily solved). Eric immediately responded to my call and talked me through the issue. The fire alarm ran out of battery, so the alarm went off in the middle of the night. Again, Eric responded immediately and offered to send someone to switch out the battery.
All in all, if you're looking to stay in Bed-Stuy in an apartment with a lot of space, book at urban jungle!
