I lived in NYC for the past 14 years and will be happy to share with you everything I know.
We had a great time at Marina's apartment in Brooklyn! Although we were late she was welcoming us very warmly and showed us around. She had even cared for breakfast and fruits.
The apartment itself is actually much bigger than it looks on the pictures: you will have a spacious bedroom with a double bed and a living room including the kitchen and a comfortable couch, where her two cats have their space too. They are really easy to care for and rather quiet pets.
The apartment is situated in the Flatbush area which is safe and offers much cheaper grocery stores and small restaurants than most other neighborhoods in New York. You can get to Manhattan easily with an express train within 25min (subway station is in short walking distance), however, we found public transportation in general a little frustrating - make sure you know when your trains run, especially on weekends and holidays.
Marina is an excellent host - she recommended us several places to go and we could always write or call her if we had any questions, she responded immediately. We would definitely stay at her place again.
My host was very nice. I found the home easy. The quarter was enough peaceful and poor.
We had a wonderful stay at Marinas apartment. It was clean and we had everything we needed and more. We shared the apartment with two very cute and pleasant cat-flatmates. The subway-station was approximately a 5 min-walk. There where also many small supermarkets and various possibilities to eat nearby. We felt very safe and we can absolutely recommend a stay at Marinas.
The apartment was great! The rooms were clean and we had everything we needed from kitchen stuff to towels. And the two cats are so nice and cute, if you like cats you'll definetely love Marina's cats! We spent there 6 days and everything was really good. Its location is definetely nice - not far from the metro, shops, cosy cafes. Marina could not meet us herself but her cousin Katia met us and showed us around the apartment. She was really nice and also gave us some advice for places to see and to do. Our experience was great and I would 100% recommend this place for your short or long term experince of New York.
Marina is a lovely person who was really helpful both before arrival and during my stay, massages were replied very quickly with a lot of useful informations.
The location is very near to subway line Q that brings one directly to Union Square (the trip is about 40 minutes altogether).
One shouldn't expect an area full of bars and restaurants, but on the Courtelyou road (ca. 10-15 minutes by foot) there are some really nice places for a coffee or for a drink or dinner.
Although the flat is not in a free-standing Victorian home typical for Ditmas Park, I would recommend it first and foremost for those who'd like to stay in a neighborhood like Ditmas Park, being still well connected to Manhattan -- and don't mind to share the flat with two cats. The ocean at Coney Island can be reached in about 25 minutes with the Q line.
The photos describe quite well the atmosphere of the flat.
The reservation was canceled 6 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Marina is a very kind host, always anserwing very fast and in a helpful way.
We stayed 10 nights at her apartment which is very close to the subway (about 4 minutes to walk) and in a good neighborhood in Brooklyn. The apartment is located in a big and old house. We felt a bit like a short-term-inhabitant of Brooklyn, but we experienced also the disadvantages which come with the age of the house: the old heating system, the sometimes dripping tap in the bathroom and the draughty windows. Maybe this is all much better in the summer time ;)
The cats were okay and adapted to new people, but can't go out. So you have to like cats because they are always around in the living room.
With this apartment, you get a trustworthy host, two not-so-cuddly cats very close and an authentic living-in-NY-/Brooklyn-experience.
