Our apartment is located in historic Crown Heights, a neighborhood with a rich history. As a designer and woodworker I have rebuilt this space into a welcoming home and filled it with furniture I have built in my wood shop only two blocks away.
The apartment is two floors with three big bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Each bedroom comes with a closet and a dresser. If requested, bedroom #2 in the photos can easily have two twin beds in place of the double bed. If you have a party greater than 6 (7 or 8 maximum), we can accommodate you with another real bed of your choice, placed in the alcove. The alcove does not have a door like the other three real bedrooms.
We have a large TV with cable and xbox 360 in the living room. WiFi is also provided. There is a built in stereo system with speakers throughout the apartment so bring your iPod, iPhone or mp3 and you will have music throughout.
If you are traveling with children, our apartment is very child friendly. We can provide a high chair, pack n play, and toys if necessary.
Fresh linens and towels are provided for you when you arrive. A washer and dryer are available for your use. All rooms have A/C and ceiling fans. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to prepare a meal and plenty of dishes to serve with. We also have a dishwasher.
We are close to the A train (Nostrand Ave.) and Manhattan is only four stops away. Although, with everything in the area, you may want to spend some time in Brooklyn, too. We are close to the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Botanical Gardens and Prospect Park. Franklin Avenue, one avenue away, is great for food, drinks and coffee.
We are easily accessible to either JFK, LaGuardia, or Newark airports by either public transportation or by taxi. We are about a 20 minute walk to the new Barclay Center.
The space is safe, cozy and comfortable. Being located in the back of a building, it is also quiet as you do not get noise from the street.
Let me know if you have any questions about our space or the city. I am more than happy to help out in any way that I can. Also, please read through our reviews to get a better idea from our previous guests as to what our apartment is like.
We had an incredible stay, it was perfect in every way! Rich was so easy to correspond with, extremely hospitable when we arrived, and the house could not have been more comfortable with cute decor and great amenities. We would love to stay here again (and again) but we think other people are starting to love it as much as we did...so we hope it's available when we come back. If you want to feel at home but also explore a really cool neighborhood (and city), this is the Airbnb for you!
Our group spent the last 3 nights of an action packed 10 tour of NY in this beautiful apartment. All 8 of us loved its decor, funky style. spaciousness and comfort. There was more than enough room for us all. We especially appreciated our host, Rich, for greeting us and taking the time to hep us get oriented in regards to local shops, sightseeing and transit information. He and his wife Sara were very friendly, gracious and helpful. Our only regret is we wish we could have stayed longer ! We all definitely hope to return - there is so much more to do! Thanks Rich and Sara!
The place was great and Rich & Sara were really nice and helpful! Everything worked smoothly and we had a great week in Brooklyn. Highly recommended!
Appartement absolument génial, très propre avec tout le confort et spacieux.
3 grandes chambres, 2 belles salle de bain.
Une cuisine très bien équipée, un salon/salle à manger très design et chaleureux.
Ecran plat avec jeux vidéos et la super sono en wifi dans tout l'appartement avec les portables, génial :))
Nous étions une famille de 4 adolescents + les 2 parents, c'était parfait car les enfants étaient en bas et nous en haut.
Chacun son espace, son univers.
Le quartier est sûr, vous avez au coin de la rue une super boulangerie avec croissants et baguette comme en France, c'est tenu par Barbara et Albert, charmants (en sortant de l'immeuble à droite puis première à gauche, RICHOL Bakery)
Vous passerez devant cette boulangerie pour prendre le métro, avec la ligne A Express vous serez en 15 minutes sur Manhattan.
Loger à Brooklyn était une super expérience car nous avons découvert un "vrai" quartier Américain comme on les aime.
Sara et Rich sont charmants, ils vous donneront pleins de petits conseils.
A notre arrivée Rich nous attendait avec aussi un petit mot sur le grand tableau et pour notre départ nous avons rencontré Sara.
Les horaires d'arrivée et de départ sont flexibles car ils habitent dans le même quartier.
Je vous recommande vivement cet appartement décoré avec beaucoup de goût.
Vous vous y sentirez tout de suite comme chez vous.
Rich's apartment was excellent. Clean and spacious, only 5 minutes walk to Nostrand subway station (Where express trains stop). Rich and his wife Sara were very friendly and helpful.
For 5 of us there was plenty of space.
This place was a great place to stay, more than enough room for our group of eight. The decor was amazing especially the welcome board where they leave info and suggestions for your stay including their contact information. The neighborhood felt safe and it was great how they can provide you with three sets of keys. I would definitely stay again.
Bottom line up front: This is another gushing review for this great apartment! I stayed at Rich and Sara's wonderful apartment with 7 other friends. The place was perfect for all 8 of us. We had no issues with the alcove that lacks its own doorway but has a fold-up privacy screen. The apartment is as gorgeous as pictured and the hosts were excellent to work with; they were extremely responsive and very kind. Their place was impeccably clean on arrival and is very tasteful. The wifi and airplay enabled speaker system (built into the ceiling) is great! TV with Xbox Live was also an excellent addition. Bathrooms are in excellent condition and are extremely well done! We were given plenty of towels. These two have everything down pat like true business owners; they even had a blackboard listing everything we would need to know about the place and the neighborhood with a welcoming drawing! The home borders Nostrand avenue and is within reasonable distance to the A/C and 4/5 subway lines. The neighborhood is OK for Brooklyn. Commute time to Grand Central was approx 40min. Thank you Rich and Sara!
My friends and me had a lovely time at the woodworkers apartment. Its spacious ( we were 7 people !) and very comfortable, especially the beds. The area has got lots of interesting shops and cafes. We have already enquired about coming to stay again. Rich and Sara are very helpful and efficient. Great hosts! Thank you.
eu e minha família tivemos uma experiência muito além do esperado. Rich é um senhorio atencioso nos mínimos detalhes. Se a localização não é 100%, tanto o apartamento, que é muito confortável, quanto a acolhida foram 1000%. recomendo tanto que em breve espero voltar!
INCREDIBLE house. The decor and style of the house was literally stunning. We rented this for a group of colleagues traveling to NYC for a holiday party. They raved about the house. There was even a Christmas Tree set up for the guests to enjoy, which really charmed our guests.
The hosts were super nice and really went out of their way to communicate and meet our needs. This is really saying something since the couples staying there were arriving at different times and had different schedules.
Can't say enough about the space and the hosts. If you want a really elegant space to stay, do consider this place. Worth every penny.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
