Fabulous communal courtyard with grill. Very close to Atlantic Terminal for subway (2, 3, 4, 5, Q, N, R, LIRR) and great bars and restaurants of Park slope / Fort Greene / Smith Street all within a few minutes walk. The new Barclays center is 2 minutes walk - a great arena with world class entertainment! It (email hidden)ly neighborhood which has something for everyone. We can provide plenty of recommendations. Also BAM is across the street - this is famous for some fantastic theater but also has a movie theater. This hosts modern new films as well as older classics. The green space of Prospect Park and Fort Greene is nearby too. Happy to answer any questions!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I had a great stay at Oliver’s place. The apartment is impeccably clean and nicely decorated. It has everything you can wish for feeling comfortable. Although it is located at a busy intersection it is very quiet. The sound proofing is perfect.
    Oliver does a great job with giving a very clear and very detailed information about the apartment. Communication with him is very easy. All questions are answered very fast.
    Location is excellent with easy access to public transport (The Atlantic Terminal is literally across the road). A lot of restaurants and shops around. A very nice and safe area to explore.
    I would highly recommend the apartment. It is one of the best accommodations I have had in NYC so far.

  • This is a comfortable, spacious, tastefully decorated apartment. For those who like to cook when on holiday there is an excellently equipped kitchen area. There is a good Internet connection, we had no problems downloading HD films from Netflix. It is in a safe area with a major subway intersection 2min walk away which enabled us to explore Manhattan almost every day-an unlimited ride subway/bus ticket for the week cost around £20. There are many restaurants, bars and grocery shops nearby, we were spoilt for choice. Although the apartment is located at a busy intersection the sound proofing is excellent and we were never troubled with noise.From start to finish communication with the owner was excellent, he replied promptly to queries and made everything clear. He also contacted us soon after our arrival to make sure everything was OK-which was a thoughtful gesture. Overall this is an ideal location to experience the real New York but also close enough to the major tourist attractions. I have no reservation in recommending this apartment if you are considering a trip to NY.

  • We had a wonderful experience, found the apartment to be welcoming and very clean. It is nicely and conveniently appointed with amenities. The directions given were very clear and easy to follow. Excellent location with easy access to public transportation, restaurants and stores. We also felt very safe and amazingly quite in the master bedroom. Found all my communications with the landlord to be highly responsive. Would for sure stay here again if the opportunity presents itself.

  • This beautiful apartment was exactly as described. We made the request to stay last minute and Oliver was very quick to reply and even sent the keys overnight. Highly recommended!

  • We had a great time in Brooklyn NY. The apartment was awesome: it was spacious, clean and well equipped, nice hot shower, quiet bedroom.
    The location is also perfect: from JFK to the apartment is very easy. The Railroad and lots of Metro lines just around the corner.
    It was very easy dealing with Oliver and Amy. They were very helpful in sharing information and responded nice and quick to our mails.
    We highly recommend this apartment if you want to explore New York.

  • Hands down my favorite home away from home stay! What you see is what you get!

    Exceptionally clean, incredibly spacious, quiet neighbours, thoughtful touches by the hosts for forgetful travelers, transit ideal with many options for getting around, Target across the street for groceries and general shopping, tons of great restaurants if you're not inclined to be a chef, comfy bed even for those with wonky backs, and the citiquiet windows and blackout shades are perfect for those lazy sleep in mornings despite the hustle bustle outside!!

    Expected to spend most of my time in Manhattan, but fell in love with exploring Brooklyn. In fact reminds me of when SoHo wasn't just all big brand stores. Location is absolutely perfect for exploration and indulging in Brooklyn but minutes away from Manhattan.

    Lastly Oliver and Amy were very responsive to any questions, all instructions and recommendations perfect, and coordinating the keys and arrival was all very flexible. All in all a delight to deal with. Can't wait for my next stay at your little gem of a home!

  • Oliver’s place was superb. From the window you can see the subway station hitting Times Square within 20 minutes. The apartment is clean trendy with a most welcome study to get away from it all and work when required. One of the best places I’ve stayed so-far in NYC.
