Paul and Ewa's place is fantastic, and Ewa is a wonderfully welcoming hostess. The apartment is very clean and well taken care of, and decorated beautifully. The location cannot be beat - amazing coffee shop on the corner, walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the train. Ewa met us when we arrived and provided not only the keys, but lots of great information about what we should do in the area and checked in on us while we were ther.e We would definitely stay there again.
Ewa and Paul's place was perfect for our needs. Fresh, clean, modern and nicely decorated, it made for a great four night stay. Ewa warmly welcomed and oriented us. They were excellent about communication. For us, the location just off of Smith Street was ideal. We would love to stay with them again!
This apartment was beautifully kept and obviously recently renovated which made a very pleasant stay. The separate private entrance meant minimal disturbance to others and ourselves. Ewa was very helpful upon our arrival and provided us with useful local information. She was easily accessible if required. The street is lovely with many other brown stones and is very close to many local amenities including several retail and grocery stores as well as restaurants. A short walk to local subway. Overall an excellent stay for our family visiting New York.
Ideal base for family holiday visit to NYC. Very agreeable and helpful hosts. One short block from F Train which travels right through the centre of Manhattan. So relaxing and agreeable to return to this neighbourhood at the end of each day and to such a spacious (for NYC) and well-equipped flat. Local area full of families. Smith Canteen at the end of the short street makes excellent coffee. One block away is a small public park with a basketball court which proved very handy. Our family also used Prospect Park for a run. Used Uber as needed and it was never more than a few minutes wait and sometimes a very comfortable car! The River Cafe beneath the Brooklyn Bridge was a sensational host for flawless Xmas lunch (need to book well in advance) with great view of Manhattan. Used Union Market on Court Street for good quality groceries/ready made or quick to make nutritious family meals. Used local store around corner in Smith Street for fresh bagels. If you've any questions the hosts are very helpful. I was ill on arrival and they recommended excellent local medical centre and wonderful local suggestions for family activities that might make it easier for me whilst I was under the weather. Places further afield in Brooklyn we enjoyed were the friendly Urban Vintage cafe (took the chess set and camped on the sofa), and Toms for breakfast (782 Washington Ave) - a local institution. Family highlight was to get tickets to a Knicks game. Sensational entertainment! One thing I would have done in advance if I'd known is try to get tickets to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. For the best view, Top of the Rock. The holiday queue at the Empire State is dreadfully managed and can ruin the experience. You also get to see the Empire State from the Top of the Rock. Ice skating in Central Park was another highlight. Need to book in advance. Very busy in holiday period. (Like many things in NYC) you can pay extra... and bypass the entrance queue and sit in rinkside heated VIP tent and sip hot cider. Did private deal with Uber driver (with great car) for return trip to the airport. That worked very well. Memorable trip. Thank you New York. And our warmest thanks to Paul and Ewa!
A great stay. The apartment exceeded our expectations. Very comfortable beds, great location (1.5 blocks from the F and G Train) and we really appreciated all the supplies. The local coffee beans were a big hit with my wife and I appreciated the stocked staples in the pantry. I would recommend 100%.
