My husband and I love to travel with our two kids, so we know how great it feels to find a home away from home at a reasonable price. With that in mind, I’m delighted to share with you our warm, quiet, street-level apartment in residential Old Mill Basin in Brooklyn, New York, just 20 minutes from JFK International Airport and 35 minutes from LaGuardia Airport. It comfortably accommodates the single person, couple or family of up to five looking for a brief or extended stay.
The space is private, so you won't have to share anything; you will have the entire apartment to yourself. It consists of a living room, bedroom, dining room, kitchen and bathroom. It is breezy in the summer and warm in the winter and is close (in many cases walking distance) to the best of shopping and entertainment for both kids and adults.
- Free air conditioning during summer months.
- Free basic cable TV.
- Free WiFi Internet access.
- Fully furnished living room – chair, futon sofa/bed, flat screen TV.
- Bedroom – chair, full size futon sofa/bed (additional, smaller futon/bed provided as required for fifth person), night stand.
- Full kitchen – stove, cooking and eating utensils, microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee maker, toaster.
- Bathroom -- Shower, toilet, sink, and yes, there is a hair dryer. :-) (We get that question a lot!)
Shopping & Attractions:
Walking distance from kids playground, grocery stores, pharmacies, diners, restaurants, pet stores and the well known Kings Plaza mall. A short bus ride gets you to the Triangle mall, Atlantic mall, the affordable Flatbush shopping district, libraries, and museums. Fifteen minutes by car gets you to the Sheepshead Bay IMAX 3D movie theater complex, the world-famous Coney Island and New York Aquarium.
Adult entertainment includes easy access to Utica and Flatbush Avenue night clubs and the Resort World casino on Rockaway Blvd (just off the Belt Parkway).
Commuter vans and NYC busses with connections to trains to Manhattan are conveniently accessible just a few feet from the home’s driveway.
Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
Other Things to Note
Late Check Out:
The apartment is usually in high demand, so we tend to have new guests arriving the same day that previous guests are leaving. This means late check out is often not possible. Check with us no later than the day before you plan to leave and we will let you know. The late check out rate is $10/hour.
Early Check In:
Again, due to high demand, it is not always possible to accommodate early check in. Check with me no later than the day before you plan to check in and I will let you know. The early check in rate is $10/hour.
No parties, pets, loud music, loud noises or smoking please. We take pride in our apartment, so please be considerate as you use it. Please place trash in provided garbage bins and maintain general cleanliness of the surroundings. Be considerate to neighbors -- we've known them for years and they are all great people. Just reach out to me if you ever have a question about whether something is permitted. We thank you in advance.
The apartment is really nice it has everything you need and an ok location near pharmacies, groceries etc. I say the location is ok because the apartment is like 15-20 mins(drive) away from the nearest train station ( I don't advise you walk it can take you up to an hour or more) but they have commuter buses that drive you there ( faster and cheaper than the bus).They are driving around through out the whole day 2$ per person ( I advise you read the welcome book in the apartment for tips). Manhattan is like an hour and a half (via public transit) . Overall we enjoyed our time in the city. The apartment is great.
En realidad si nos sentimos bien acogidos por el anfitrion. El apartamento tuvo un inconveniente electrico una vez en la mañana y el problema fue resuelto con prontitud. Tuvimos toda la informacion necesaria para trasladarnos a toda la ciudad, conocer sitios de comida, de transporte y ademas el sitio contaba con detalles disponibles para alguien que llega desde lejos y no tiene posibilidades de hacer compras antes de irse a dormir. Muy amable Yolanda y su familia. Gracias. Volveria a este apartamento.
everything perfect. very cozy house and very close to all the buses were just meters and also a large shopping center . certainly I would return home from yolanda . thanks for all yolanda a hug from Venezuela kisses
The apartment is very nice and cozy. It was exactly what we needed for our 10 days vacation in New York. Yolanda was very nice and cooperative and did all she could to satisfy us. Yolanda's father came to fix our toilette immediately after we asked. There were some cold and snowy days and we asked yolanda to keep the heat working for some more time and she did it willingly and right away. In short-it is a very recommended apartment for a vacation in the bug apple
Yolanda's apartment was absolutely wonderful. It was very clean and organized and also so comfortable. We stayed there for 7 days in five people. The neighborhood is really quite and there are many bus stops and places to eat around. We simply loved our stay there and I highly recommend this apartment to anyone who wants a nice and homey place to spend some days.
Yolanda's place was perfect for our family. It is quaint and comfortable. Public transportation is literally a few feet away. Yolanda is very accommodating providing maps, information, menus, about the area, and city. I would definitely recommend her place and also stay there again on my next visit.
