See you soon in your own private apartment while here in NYC.
No large pets or pets that are not trained.
No smoking, smoking can be done on the stoop/steps outside. No very loud music. We will enjoy our peaceful living space together but apart.
Cynthia's house is great! It worked perfectly for me and my grandparents! Cynthia is really sweet and helpful as well! Had a great 10 days there!
However, the location is just okay. Getting to midtown Manhattan will take you 35 minutes. Also the street the subway station is on is pretty sketchy. Not walking around at night is probably a good idea.
The five of us had a very pleasant stay in Cynthia's top floor apartment. As a large group, we were using the maximum number of beds: a double sofa bed in the living room, a double bedroom, and a smaller single bedroom. All were clean and comfortable. There was also a kitchen area with full amenities for cooking meals if we felt like staying in. The street itself was green and peaceful, with beautiful Brooklyn town houses on either side, and was just a stone's throw from a C-line subway stop (Kingston/Throop), making the journey to Manhattan very easy (about 20 mins). It was also a very characterful neighbourhood, not as gentrified as Williamsburg or Greenpoint, and it really felt like we were getting a taste of ordinary Brooklyn life. Cynthia gave fantastic tips on local bars and restaurants, places that you wouldn't necessarily find in guide books but turned out to be amazing discoveries. Overall I would recommend a stay at Cynthia's if you are looking to see a new side of New York, away from the usual tourist trap Meccas around midtown Manhattan, to interact with an extremely kind, warm and knowledgeable host, and to have a comfortable place to retreat to after a day experiencing the noise and bustle of Manhattan. A great New York experience. Highly recommended.
The appartment was as described, perfect for the four of us, well located and by short walking distance to trains for Manhattan.
Also shops nearby to buy food and drinks.
Cynthia is a very welcoming person, and has made it easy for us.
We are from India and stayed at Cynthia's house for five days.
She was a wonderful host, very friendly and helpful.
Located in Brooklyn, the apartment was well located in terms of commute, the subway station being just five minutes by walk.
We had a great time and would strongly recommend this place to people looking for a nice place to stay in New York.
Cynthia is hurricane of positiveness! It is pleasure to deal with her =)
As usual in reality apartment is smaller than pictures show, but it is common practice. It is fully equipped for short or long stay.
And it has following specialty: there is just one isolated room, two others are communicating. There is one sleep place in transit kitchen-hall-living room, large bad for two in another transit bedroom and one more 1-sleep bed in separate room.
District looks quite risky at the first glance, but we had never met any issues on the street during our 6 days stay. Moreover - people helped us everywhere in the city.
New York is beautiful and this apartment is a simple way to see its real side.
Nous avons loué l’appartement de Cynthia en dernière minute suite à un changement précipité de notre précédente location. Cynthia a été très réactive et accueillante. L’appartement était parfait (3 adultes et 2 enfants), situé dans un quartier animé, avec de nombreux commerces et restaurants et surtout calme la nuit. Il est situé à 3 mn du métro ligne C ce qui permet de se rendre rapidement au cœur de Manathan et 5 mn du de la ligne A pour l’Aéroport JFK. Cynthia a toujours été présente pour répondre à toutes nos questions. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à New York. Nous recommandons vivement cet appartement qui correspond bien à la description faite.
This is a lovely place to stay! It's in a nice neighbourhood, and it's on the top floor and all yours, while the host - Cynthia - lives downstairs and is really very friendly, kind and helpful, and there if you need her help or advice. The apartment was perfect for the three of us, cosy, with a character, with good, comfortable beds, a kitchen where is everything you might need, with a spacious bathroom where there are towels, shampoos, soap - whatever you need, and it's less than 10 minute walk to subway or to supermarket. I highly recommend this place, if you are looking for a place you can call home during your stay in NY!
