Fabulous Urban Retreat 2 bedrooms

Apartment - Entire home/apt · St Marks Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11213, United States

The Space

Modern and prestigious, this cozy apartment is on the ground floor of a centennial Brooklyn townhouse located at the heart of vibrant, dynamic Crown Heights – the perfect urban haven after a full day of shopping and adventure in Manhattan or Brooklyn.
Two different subway stations (See Guide for more details), each only a 10-minute walk away, connect you to New York's most visited borough, wether you are going to the West Side, MidTown or East Side of Manhattan. Some visitors will also be pleasantly surprised to find out that we are located 30 minutes away, door to door, from the Barclays Center.
The apartment easily fits up to 6 adults, with a queen-size bed in the master bedroom, a full-size bed in the second bedroom and an outrageously comfortable sofa bed in the living room. Foodies who enjoy cooking their own meals will love the fully-equipped kitchen – and delight in the gourmet grocery stores, as well as a variety of coffee shops and restaurants, located in the neighborhood within 15 minutes on foot. Feel free to enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the townhouse's peaceful garden, to which you'll have full and direct access. The beautiful and recently renovated Brooklyn Children's Museum is on the next block, as well as a charming neighborhood park facing historic Millionaire's Row, with its magnificent 19th century buildings. Everything else you might need (drugstores, supermarkets, fast food options or caribbean restaurants) is also readily available, within walking distance.
There are portable AC in the living room and the master bedroom and powerful fan in the smaller bedroom (YES, POWERFUL) for a comfortable night of rest during NYC heat waves. The place is nice and warm during the cool months thanks to efficient radiators and separate control of the temperature in each room. In the living room you will have access to 130 channels on the flat panel television. WiFi and washer and dryer are also provided. We will gladly provide you any information and advice you might require so as to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
Special arrangements are available for families with children (play pen with mattress; high chair; toys, even a City Mini stroller).

  • Nuestra estancia en el apartamento de Noemie ha sido estupenda. Somos una familia española de cinco adultos y el apartamento ha resultado grande, confortable, limpio, bonito...y muy calentito, lo que no es poco cuando en la calle la temperatura no llegaba en ocasiones a 0 grados. Está situado en un barrio tranquilo, multicultural, bien abastecido y comunicado, con distintas líneas de metro a poca distancia. Es una zona de Nueva York diferente que nos ha gustado conocer. Noemíe y Robert han sido encantadores y nos han ayudado con todo lo que hemos necesitado.

    Our time at Noemie’s apartment has been great. We are a Spanish family of five adults and we found the apartment large enough, comfortable, clean, beautiful ... and very warm, which is important considering that outer temperature did not reached 0 degrees many days during our stay at New York. It is situated in a peaceful, multicultural neighborhood, well stocked and communicated, with different subway lines within walking distance. It is a different area of New York we are found we have known. Noemie and Robert were lovely and helped us with everything we needed.

  • Fabulous.

  • Just as it is listed - Fabulous Urban Retreat.

    The crew and cast of the short film "Across Lines", could not have found a better location to work and rest.

    Noemie and her family were so gracious and kind. We did not want to leave.

    It was everything we were looking for - clean, quiet and spacious.

    Looking forward to go back soon.

  • An amazing host. We did a small film shoot at Noemie's, and could not have asked for a more flexible, gracious and stress-free experience with the family. Not only did they ok the shoot, they let us take liberties with the space and even helped us change the lighting! It's above and beyond what we could have asked for. The apartment itself, of course, is a dream space for someone vacationing in New York. Clean, gorgeous and comfortable, it feels like a real home. We are so grateful to Noemie and her family for being so generous with their home; the space really made the film a million times more interesting.

  • It was exactly as described!

  • Très bonne expérience !!
    L'appartement est vraiment superbe, calme (pas un bruit la nuit), propre, confortable, et rien ne manque. On se sent comme chez soi !
    Noémie et Robert sont des hôtes très sympathiques. Noémie nous a fourni toutes les informations nécessaires pour passer un séjour agréable.
    Je le recommande vivement !

  • El departamento de Noemie es divino. Renovado recientemente, muy bien decorado y con electrodomésticos que funcionan perfectamente. Está provisto de todo lo que podes necesitar para vivir como si fuera tu propia casa. Impecablemente limpio, con toallas y sábanas nuevas. Hay dos lineas de subtes que llegan a 6 cuadras . Nosotros usamos siempre la línea 3 ya que nos gustaba más caminar por Kingston Ave hacia esa estación.
    Noemie es divina, contesta mails inmediatamente y cuando estuvimos allí siempre estuvo dispuesta a ayudar en lo que necesitábamos. Vive en la casa de arriba por lo que cualquier inconveniente que surja siempre está disponible.

    We had a great time at Noemie´s. The flat has recently been rebuilt. Very nicely decorated. Very cozy and welcoming. Well appointed, you have everything you need to feel at home. We found it spotlessly clean with fresh new linens.
    Noemie is a great hostess. Always prompt to answer mails and once there ready to help at any time.
    We´ll definitely come back and we´ll surely recommend it to friends in Argentina. Thank you Noemie!!!!!!

  • Expérience très agréable pour nous : le lit était confortable, l'appartement, impeccable et très propre, on est à quelques minutes de marche du métro, la rue est jolie, et les hôtes, franchement sympathiques. Bref, un séjour parfait!

  • We search long and hard for a place to stay in NYC during our business trip. At the time of searching hotels were 200-300 a night, and I had part of my crew with me. Spending that amount for nights was way our of my price range especially if we were rarely going to be inside. The goal was to find a 2 bedroom that had a feel of an hotel only because we had women in our group. Then we found Noemie's place via airbnb and it matched all our needs 100%. This was my first time diving into AirBnB. Noemie is freakishly fast with communication!! That really help in my decision to book the place.

    Noemie's place should be the standard for all AirBnB! I can just tell there is a lot of passion and organization that went into this place. There is printout on the coffee table with all the recommendations to the food in the area, directions on how to use the T.V, and a number for car service. This subtle detail is a plus for me. The apartment itself had a great first impression when you step in. Neighborhood is pretty much NY, if you have a car, there is parking in the front but most of the time it will be taken. Best time to find a good spot is around 8AM when everyone leaves for work. At night, Noemie graciously let us park in her driveway as long as we move the car between 7 - 7:30AM. This was awesome!

    The only mishap is the key that was given did not work with the gate when we arrived. I was dumbfounded and didn't understand why the key didn't work, maybe I was missing something? When I had given up I called Noemie who picked up immediately and said that her husband will be on the way to help us. We had to wait for a bit which was fine but we had a business meeting with clients later that night. My company of people with me was getting grumpy for waiting. It's just a natural reaction for traveling all day, being tired and hungry. We waited in the car for Noemie's husband to arrive. We had learn that it was the wrong key to the door.

    BUT TAKE THIS as a RARE thing. This was accident and I am sure this will never happen again. We settled in and left for the meeting. Noemie called later and apologized. Before we left Noemie offered a partial refund for inconvenience which was greatly appreciated. Again her communication is top notch, I can text her and get a reply almost immediately.

    Overall my time there felt like a vacation, and in my opinion way better than a hotel. I would love to come back if they would have me again!!! Five stars +++++

    Response from Noemie:

    Wow, Ramon, this is an extensive review, indeed, thank you! It would be a pleasure to host you again, and yes, the mystery of the key was resolved and the solution simple: don't trust the judgment of a teenager ;-).

    Happy Holidays to you guys and good luck with your endeavours!

  • It was our second stay and it was just as enjoyable as the first. Clean, nicely appointed, spacious, two bedroom with all the amenities including washer and dryer. Noemi and Robert are easy to work with, always responsive and accommodating. Nice location close to the Kingston subway stop and all the new places on Franklin.

    We'll go back.

About
My husband and I and our 3 children just moved in this lively, diverse neighborhood and we accomplished the renovation of a gorgeous 2 bedroom appartment on the ground floor of our historic limestone. This is a brand new endeavour for us and although you will find everything you need to enjoy a comfortable vacation, we are planing to enrich the place and service with small or big additions over time. Most importantly, we are really looking forward to meet you and welcome you to your beautiful urban retreat and will do what we can to make your stay fun and stress-free, and give you advice to manage your exciting vacation in New York City. Native of Brooklyn, Robert, my husband, will be your on-site resource for your discovery of our borough, as well as Manhattan. Originaire du Québec, on m'a un jour arrachée à ma ville adorée, Montréal, pour me déposer au beau milieu de Brooklyn, métropole à la fois hétéroclite, charmante, trépidante et poétique. En 6 ans, je m'y suis tranquillement enracinée, y ai fondé une famille et rencontré des gens captivants venus de partout au monde, qui sont devenus mes amis, ma vie. Mais je m'ennuierai toujours de mon monde à moi, des Québécois comme de tous les autres francophones. Parce qu'on est bien dans sa langue et qu'on y retrouve ce sentiment familier qui nous réconforte. Voilà pourquoi j'ai eu l'idée de vous attirer vers moi, pour vous piquer une petite causette pendant que vous passeriez chez nous, entre deux escapades à Manhattan ou au moins à votre arrivée à Brooklyn. Je serai trop heureuse de vous aider à trouver ce que vous cherchez dans les environs, et comme mon mari est originaire de New York, il connais Manhattan et Brooklyn comme le fond de sa poche!
