A really beautiful apartment. I was impressed by how well presented it was, the attention to detail and how everything i needed was there. I was worried when i first arrived whether there would be an iron. However Lo and behold there was and a also a board! Had everything i needed for my trip. The bed was so comfy and had many peaceful nights sleeps. Would highly recoomend to anyone and would consider staying again for my next trip to the big apple!
Very nice neighborhood - Latin & Asian restaurants right around the corner, Arab restaurants about 15 blocks away. Connection to Manhattan very good. The place itself was very nice - a lot of light and spaceous rooms. We were greeted very kindly by Annette's mother Haydee, who lives on the first floor. It was an absolute pleasure staying there. We would love to come back again some time soon. Absolute recommendation!
This is a charming apartment on a quiet block in Sunset Park. There is plenty of privacy and is very close to public transportation. The description of this listing and the accompanying photos were spot on. Annette's mom was most helpful throughout our stay. We had a great time, using Annette's listing as a base for our activities.
Very nice flat, very convenient to have a little break when you want to be alone; very good vibe and warm welcome from Haydee. Very clean ( incredible soft linen) One tip though, if you take 59th street metro stop, then you are 10 min away from Atlantic center avenue station taking everywhere you d like, but its also very convenient to visit Queens and its art museums, learn to cook local etc. Very safe and friendly. Especially the local store down on your left very nice guy: No tourist in the area, a real break! Perfect! Thanks!
Annette's apartment in Brooklyn was perfect for our stay. It is in a lovely street in an area where there is lots to do. It is close to the subway and is very easy to get into midtown to see all the sights. We enjoyed sitting on the tube and seeing the views of the city and watching all the people go by.
The apartment was clean and well equip, with everything we needed. There were supermarkets just down the road. Haydee let us in and showed us where everything was.
Only problem was that the taxi from JFK cost $60 and we would've benefitted from public transport info eg. What the nearest metro station was and how to get there.
All in all we had a great stay in New York in Annette's apartment and if we return we will definitely come back! Thanks

About the Host, Annette
When I'm not planning an event or decorating, I love to sit back, relax and take life in.
My home is my sanctuary, and I try to make it feel that way for others. Not pretentious or stuffy, just comfortable and welcoming - so if you're planning a trip to Brooklyn and need a place to stay that will feel like a home away from home, shoot me an e-mail.
Coming Next Spring -- I will have a beautiful master suite available for rent - with small seating area, queen size bed, private dual sink master bath with tub and a lovely private deck for you to sit and enjoy a morning cup of coffee or some star gazing at night!
