About this listing
NOTE: This apartment is NOT an illegal sublet like so many NY rental apartments! Supporting proof for a Class B townhouse is available.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VISITORS: The property is a two-family home. As such it is NOT subject to the new New York law, signed by the Governor of NY State in 2011, which prohibits the short-term rental of housing units. That law only applies to buildings, such as every apartment building in NYC, containing 3 or more 'dwelling units' (i.e., separate apartments). This home is not covered by this law because it is in a two family townhouse, and therefore the rental is completely legal. You may therefore be assured that renting will not be in violation of any laws and that you are at no risk of being unable to occupy the premises because the authorities have taken legal action against the property owner.
Deals are available for longer term stays. Very early or late checkins and checkouts are subject to a 75$ fee.
All balconies and one terrace. BBQ on terrace.
Interaction with Guests
Often. I or my property manager usually call or email each guests during their stay to ensure they have everything they need.
The perfect balance between privacy and nature, and yet so close to all subways, restaurants and supermarkets. It is the perfect location!
Most convenient. It is easier to get anywhere for the Atlantic/ Barclay Center stop in. Brooklyn to any destination in Manhattan than actually being IN Manhattan. Most subway lines are a 3 minute walk from the apartment. In one stop on the D train. You are in Chinatown. In 10 minutes and three stops in downtown Manhattan near the ferries for Staten Island, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Grand Central Station and the Empire State Building is on a direct line on the 4/5 train in 20". Penn station also direct in 25". And you to home to a tree lined street with quiet families instead of traffic and fume clogged streets!
Other Things to Note
Charming restaurants are around the corner on 5th avenue. There's even a 3 star Michelin restaurant a 10 minute walk away. All forms of entertainment, sports, film, opera, concerts a 5" walk away at BAM, the Barclay Center, etc. Cute hipster bars everywhere with famous Brooklyn microbrewery beers. Sports bars also nearby. Parks nearby, the Brooklyn Museum and Botanical Garden close by. The perfect location!
No smoking, no pets, or parties and wedding receptions (or other reception parties). To use BBQ and jacuzzi bathtub, please consult with the person letting you in. Please be sure to understand security alarm system and to be respectful to works of art, furniture. Please report any breakages, and malfunctioning equipment immediately so they can be replaced before the next party arrives.
Our family and close friends were in Brooklyn for my son's wedding and a family vacation. My daughter and I arrived first and were welcomed by Tony who was very gracious, gave us a tour of the house. This home is beautiful and in a great location minutes from Barclay center, subway, shops and restaurants, and 20-30 minutes from Prospect Park and Pier 5. We enjoyed the generous living space, balconies, kitchen, and the bedrooms and baths fit our needs perfectly.
Our family had a wonderful week long stay in Yves' home. It's a fantastic, extremely well-equipped property and the location is absolutely unbeatable. Tony was very accommodating and helpful with both our arrival and departure. Highly recommended for families traveling to the area. The other reviews are spot-on.
Die Wohnung ist so, wie sie beschrieben ist. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Größe und Aufteilung der Wohnung ist ideal für 3 Paare.
Dank der guten Erreichbarkeit - die Subway ist nur 200 m entfernt - wird kein Taxi benötigt. Selbst der Transfer von den Flughäfen ist mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln sehr gut machbar.
Die Wohnungsübergabe verlief unproblematisch, es sind genügend Schlüssel verfügbar. Das WLAN ist sehr schnell und zuverlässig.
In der Umgebung befinden sich mehrere Lebensmittelgeschäft, ein Whole Foods Store ist etwa 2 KM entfernt. In unmittelbarer Nähe der Wohnung besteht auch die Möglichkeit, Fahrräder zu mieten (New York Citi Bikes), die überall in New York an den Stationen zurückgegeben werden können.
Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit an unseren Vermieter.
This space was perfect for us. It really made our wedding weekend in NYC even more special. It was very clean, absolutely beautiful with great views of Brooklyn and Manhattan, and very convenient to public transportation and shopping. Our hosts were very accommodating and I would highly endorse this space for anyone thinking about a trip to Brooklyn.
What a luxury to have so much space when visiting the city. Everything was as described. Excellent location in Brooklyn. Quiet neighborhood; great restaurants; quick walk to the trains.
I doubt we will ever be traveling with so many people as to need this house again, but the rental certainly made this trip an easy one.
The apartment is great! The area nice, very close to restaurants, shops, subways and trains. We were 7 adults and a baby girl living in the apartment for a couple of days and it worked out perfectly. Since we first made contact with Yves, he was more then helpful answering our questions and concerns. The whole reservation process went smoothly. The building manager, Tony, greeted us when we checked in, and he provided us with all the info we needed. We had a smaller disagreement with a late check in fee, but it solved itself thanks toTony. He was really understanding, generous and had our best at heart. So, thanks again Tony! All in all, we really only have good things to say! We had a blast!
We liked the apartment a lot. It was well furnished, the kitchen was well equipped and the beds were comfortable. It was nice to have outdoor spaces as well. Toni was there when we arrived and was very helpful throughout our visit.
We liked the neighborhood. The street was quiet, and tree lined, shops and restaurants nearby and a subway station around the corner. We certainly would go there again on a future visit to New York
