Interaction with Guests
I will greet you upon your arrival and be accessible by phone during your stay. I'll check in to make sure things are going smoothly, but not too much. I want you to enjoy yourself in NYC!
Bed Stuy is a lovely neighborhood full of families and brownstones. Enjoy the many cafes and restaurants like Peaches, Saraghina, Celestino, Collado's and McDonald's. We're just around corner from the stores that line Broadway including Walgreen's drug store, the supermarket, boutiques, Radio Shack and stores for your every need. Broadway is also where you find the nightlife with music venues and bars, we are less than one mile away. Our neighborhood is very peaceful and the perfect place to come home to after a day of exploring!
The J train is just 1.5 blocks away and can take you to Williamsburg, Manhattan and Queens. The A/L trains are also easily accessible. There are numerous bus lines as well. If you are driving, street parking is available.
We are sharing our home with you, so please leave it in the best condition when you check out.
Please, absolutely no smoking in the apartment.
It was really nice to stay in Dorcas and her familiy's place. the little studioappartement was very clean andwell located. only 5min walk to next tube station. her mother receives us very friendly and we could leave our baggage in the appartement after checking out, which was very helpful. we would recommend it warmly.
Dorcas' studio was absolutely great! Bedstuy is a nice break from the madness of Manhattan, but you're only a 2 min walk to the subway. The neighborhood doesn't feel "touristy," which is nice if you want live like a local.
Dorcas' family has a nice little quiet retreat in a comparatively quiet neighborhood for Brooklyn. We might request it again. Thanks, Dorcas :-)
I am very forward with my reviews. Here it is:
Location (pros): the apartment is located in Bed-Sti in a very residential area in Brooklyn. The area felt quite safe at night with a couple of stores/delis a few blocks away. The apartment is located two blocks away from the metro which is great. There is also great on-street parking up and down the block.
Location (cons): the metro (on the J line) does not run late and so to get back at a late hour from Manhattan or anywhere else is kind of a pain but is no trade-off.
Apartment (pros): the apartment is on a one-floor walk up which is great. The apartment is incredibly nice and the photos can be deceiving. The bed is very comfortable and the heat in the place works awesome. There is a full kitchen with a hot plate to cook. And the bathroom is roomy and works very well.
Apartment (cons): If you have many bags or heavy ones, it will be awkward to get up as the stair are small. Other than that, the apartment is good.
The owner: Dorcas met us right when we got there. She understood us getting there late as we drove (due to NY traffic) and she walked us through the apartment. We had no hassle with checking in or out. Dorcas was very nice and responded quickly and with lots of detail on everything.
We had a great time in Dorcas studio, lovely place with all comfort! We definitely recommend it!
Très joli appartement, propre, bien entretenu et bien équipé. Aucune mauvaise surprise. Quartier moins agréable et communs de l'immeuble peu avenants, mais sans importance en définitive.
Merci à Carol et Dorcas
Dorca's place was perfect. The house was just as described and shown in the photos. Clean, safe and warm. The kitchen has everything u need. Excellent communication with Dorcas. It s the first time we were being in NewYork with my wife. Dorcas gave us the maps of NewYork and her wireless internet password. Our UlmonNewYork IphoneApp solved everything. We rented a car and there were a lot of free park space in front of the house. And also the place was near the metro station. November is really cold in NewYork(-5C). But it was not a problem in this warm house. Dorcas was always reachable by whatsapp. Forget about stay in the hotel. This safe place is better. Thanks Dorcas.
About the Host, Dorcas
Born and raised in brownstone Brooklyn, I am happy to share my family brownstone with guests. I've had the opportunity to travel all over the world performing and teaching, yet I've always come back to Bed Stuy. I'm happy knowing that I am creating a temporary home away from home for fellow travelers. Welcome!
