THE APARTMENT AND OUR HOUSE:
Our house is a three story house and it's a mixture of modern an old. The house itself is an old brownstone but it's newly renovated with new modern kitchens, bathrooms, wooden floors and appliances (fridge, microwave, stove etc.)
This guest apartment is located at the second floor of our three story house.
The apartment has one bedroom with two windows and an en suite (inside the bedroom) bathroom. The bedroom has one queen sized bed that can sleep two people. There is also full sized new kitchen and a spacious living room with high ceilings. In the living room there is a full sized (slightly smaller than queen size) futon sofa bed that can sleep up to two people.
The kitchen has basic plates, cups, pots & pans and basic cooking utensils for those who like to cook.
We can give you a free password to our WiFi internet (if you have your own lap top, tablet)
THE LOCATION AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD:
The house is located 5-6 minutes walk to the blue line C train Kingston/Throop Avenue Subway station. It takes you to Brooklyn Downtown in 6-10 minutes, Lower Manhattan in about 15 min and Midtown Manhattan (Times Square) 25-30 min. (You can look at the Subway map by putting a search online "MTA Subway Map")
Our house is at the border of ethnically diverse Crown Heights and Bedford Styvesant neighborhoods. This is very typical Brooklyn Middle-Class Neighborhood.

The Bus B15 that goes to JFK Airport stops right outside our house.
Also, if you are sensitive to noise please consider that we are located one block away from the Long Island Railroad train elevated tracks. ( I don't like loud noise and I haven't find it bothering but if you do we'd be happy to give you ear plugs to make your stay more comfortable! :)
We have a very strict non-smoking policy and we would prefer guests who do not smoke not to have any problems with this.
Smoking outside of the house is fine but please note that smoking inside the apartment or in our hallway will result in non refunding the $200 security deposit. So please don't! :)

Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour à New York dans l'appartement de Jenny et José. Jenny nous a fourni beaucoup d'explications avant notre arrivée et a été très serviable et bienveillante sur place. Le logement est en tout point conforme à sa description, spacieux, bien décoré et fonctionnel. Le quartier n'a rien de particulièrement charmant mais il n'y a aucun problème de sécurité même tard le soir et il a l'avantage d'être très bien situé : l'appart est à 5mn à pied de la ligne C qui est très pratique pour se rendre à Manhattan ou pendre des correspondances avec les autres lignes principales. Le quartier compte également des commerces très pratiques (laverie, épicerie). Nous conseillons vivement cet appartement et de vivre à Brooklyn car on a l'impression de vivre parmi les new-yorkais et non pas dans un quartier d'hôtels ou uniquement de personnes financièrement très aisées.
Nous venons de passer 15 jours chez Jenny & José !!!c'est un endroit magique. Jenny toujours la à vouloir rendre service. L'appartement est conforme aux photos. Trés bien placé, proche du métro et de petit commerce. Le quartier est trés agréable. C'est un pur bonheur!!!merci encore et je l'espere a une prochaine fois !!!merci pour tout
I strongly recommend you to stay in this apartment: great hosts, clean, spacious & well-equipped apartment, diverse neighborhood, in the reasonable distance from Manhattan. Really good deal for the price.
I recommend! Everything was perfect, thank you for everything Jeanny & Jose
We had an amazing time staying at Jenny & Jose's flat!
The flat was exactly as described, spacious and in great overall condition. The place was really clean and tidied (+ clean towels and clean sheets) when we arrived and on the table was a nice and helpful guide Jenny made, filled with useful tips and informations of where to go and how to get around (which I thought was a really nice touch!). Jenny and Jose were really easy to deal with and despite the fact we didn't meet during our stay (we were rarely home), made it really easy to communicate and arrange check-in and check-out.
The flat is conveniently located, in a nice and authentic part of Brooklyn, close to a subway station that takes you to Manhattan in no time! It can get noisy at nights, but it's New York city. The room also had AC which in the summer comes quite handy!
A highly recommended place to stay if you want to experience New York in a more authentic way while still benefit from great comfort.
Jose hat uns begrüßt, alles erklärt und war supernett. In der Umgebung gibt es alles, was man braucht, ansonsten gibt es nicht viel zu sehen. Interessantere Nachbarschaften sind aber gut zu Fuß oder mit der U-Bahn zu erreichen.
We spent a really great time in New York and in Jenny's wonderful apartment. It's cosy, spacious, well-furnitured and well-provided with everything. There is a wonderful backyard, full of roses and plants – a great view from the bedroom. We felt like being at home and enjoyed it coming home after a long day in Manhattan or Brooklyn. The subway station and a supermarket was nearby (10-15 minutes to go).
We have not met Jenny until the last days. Before we communicate with her easily by email. In fact we didn't need her support in anything because everything was best-prepared. It was easy to take the flat when we arrived. You will find a manual with handy hints and good bets. Although we met Jenny only briefly we can confirm that she is a extremely nice and very pleasant person. As other guests mentioned before: she is a perfect host.
The area – Bedford-Stuyvesant – doesn't belong to the over-gentrified areas of Brooklyn (like Prospect Park West or Brooklyn Heights), it's better to know that! But we felt safe at any time. You have the chance to share a bit of real New Yorker life (beyond tourist-ways). We liked it! Like everywhere in New York it's noisy, especially because of the A-train beside the house. It could be find annoying by persons who are sensitive to noise. I slept with ear-plugs and everything was fine!
The subway-ride to Manhattan is about 20 minutes (downtown) and 40 minutes (midtown), Brooklyn downtown (15 minutes). In the evening (after 9 p.m.) we occasionally had to wait very long for a C-subway (one evening for 60 minutes!) back home. But maybe we had bad luck. That is the only interfering point I could mention. We recommend the flat and their hosts (Sorry, I only speak about Jenny but Jose is very pleasant too!) truly, madly, deeply!

About the Host, Jenny & Jose
We are very friendly married couple who loves traveling, seeing different cultures and meeting new people! We are environmentally conscious, love going to movies, eating out & just spending time in our new house. We have both traveled in many different countries and lived in Brooklyn and in New York for many years. :)
Our house is a private 3 story house that only us occupy. When our friends and family are not staying with us we rent our guest rooms through AirBnB. It has been a wonderful experience meeting new people and we love having different people from different countries staying in our house!
Our house is located right at the border of Brooklyn's Crown Heights and Bedford Styvesant neighborhoods. The whole house is newly renovated with brand new modern kitchens, bathrooms, floors, appliances (fridges, stoves, tv's ) etc.
We will try to do our very best that you enjoy your stay with us and feel like at home! :)
