And then the longer description... :)
We are offering our guest apartment for your vacation home! It's a three bedroom apartment that can sleep up to 6-7 people. It's a private guest apartment and you don't have to share it with anybody else.
In the apartment there is one bigger bedroom with a queen sized bed (sleeps two) that is united with a smaller bedroom with a twin sized bed (sleeps one). These two bedrooms are next to each other and for example to go to the bathroom or to the kitchen from this small bedroom you would have to walk through the bigger bedroom.
There is another small room on the other side of the apartment, right next to the living room, that has a full sized bed that sleeps up to two people. There is also a sofa bed in the living room that can sleep two people.
There is a kitchen with basic pots, pans, plates and basic cooking utensils for those who like to cook.
Our house is a mixture of modern and old. The house itself is an old brownstone that can fit up to three families living in there.We recently renovated it completely and it has brand new modern kitchens, floors, bathrooms, appliances etc.
The apartment is always cleaned after each guest; vacuumed, floors washed and dusted and the bathroom and tub cleaned. Clean bedlinen and clean towels are included and always changed after each guest.
We can give you a free password to our WiFi internet (if you have your own lap top, tablet
LOCATION AND THE NEIGHBORHOOD:
Our house is in the border of ethnically diverse Crown Heights and Bedford Styvesant neighborhoods. It's very typical Middle-Class Brooklyn neighborhood.
The closest train (Subway) station is the blue C line Kingston/Throop Avenue Station. The train station is very close, about 5-6 minutes walk away from our house. It takes you to Brooklyn Downtown in about 5-10 minutes and to Lower Manhattan in about 15 minutes and Midtown Manhattan (42nd Street) in about 25 minutes.
There is a big Supermarket about 10-12 minutes walk away from our house. There are also some stores and food places about 5 minute walk from our house on nearby Fulton Street.
The bus B15 that takes you 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. Since this apartment is on the 3rd floor of our house you might hear the train a little better than downstairs. We can give our guests earplugs to use if you would find the sound too bothersome.
We have a very strict non-smoking policy and we would prefer to have guests who do not smoke not to have any problems with this. And please note that smoking anywhere inside the house would results in non-refunding the $250 security (website hidden) please don't! :)
CHECK IN/OUT TIMES:
Our check in time is after 3pm and check out before 11am. We have these times so we can clean the apartments between guests who are arriving and leaving the same day.
We have cats but they stay with us downstairs and don't come to the guest apartments when we have guests there :).
Please send us any questions that you might have! We would be happy to help!
Thank you and have a wonderful day! :)
No smoking anywhere inside the apartment or in our hallway … or from the apartment windows. (This is very important for us)
(Please note that smoking inside the apartment or the house will result in non refunding the $250 security deposit.)
Booked guests only, sorry no visitors
Please place your recycling trash (plastic and glass bottles and containers, and paper) into the recycling pins in the kitchen (This is according to NY recycling laws)
Please remove shoes when inside the apartment
Sorry, no pets!!
Thank you very much!!! :)
Jenny and Jose are great! Their home is beautiful and comfortable. They made us feel welcome and I couldn't have asked for more. Next time I come to New York I definitely try to stay here again. Thanks so much!
La descripción del apartamento es tal y como se ve en las fotos, el lugar tiene un ambiente muy familiar es fácil adaptarse a él, muy limpio, cómodo y acogedor. Aunque no vi nunca a los anfitriones me sentí siempre respaldado ya que respondieron mis correos oportunamente y con la información suficiente para resolver mis inquietudes, el barrio es apacible aunque un poco inquietante si llegas tarde, pero en general muy normal. Tal ves el ruido del tren que pasa muy cerca es algo incómodo pero uno se acostumbra rápido a él. En general pasamos un gran momento en el apartamento de Jane y José. Lo recomendaría con gusto.
I would definitely recommend this apartment, it was very comfortable and was as described in the Airbnb. The neighborhood is not bad at all and the bus stop to go to the JFK is right in front of the apartment, which is good if you carry a lot of luggage. The metro station is just a short walk away so you can easily reach other parts of New York. Jenny and Jose were very good hosts, they weren't intrusive at all but on the other side helpful if something needed to be resolved or if we had any questions about the city.
WIFI works very fine, the kitchen is fully equipped and the rooms are comfortable. There were five of us which is in mine opinion an optimum number of guests for this apartment since it has three rooms and a living room area with the sofa bed.
All in all a very good and affordable choice for accommodation in NYC.
Bien que je n'ai pas eu la chance de rencontrer Jenny & Jose (très courte durée), mon séjour s'est parfaitement déroulé !
Grâce à toutes les indications et conseils que Jenny m'a donné pour nous rendre à l'appartement, nous n'avons pas eu l'impression d'être dans une immense ville inconnue, nous nous sentions déjà comme chez nous ! Jenny a créé un guide pour tous les bons "trucs" à côté (supermarché, poste, laverie), pas besoin de se creuser la tête pour la vie quotidienne. L'appartement est parfaitement en adéquation avec les photos. Un petit peu bruyant par le train, mais après des journées touristiques épuisantes, on n'y fait même plus attention! Quartier très bien déservi par les transports (15min de manathan en métro). Au plaisir de retourner à New-york !
We have had a very good experience with the apt. It is comfortable and neat. The subway is realy close and gives a direct ride to Manhatan. The description above is excactly as it is.
Jenny was very helpfull on request. And she wasn't intrusive at all, gave us the privacy we wanted. A real good place wich we recommend.
logement très bien décrit.nous confirmons pour le bruit mais on oubli très vite.
pour 7 personnes un peu juste car il y a un wc dans la salle de bain mais ok pour le reste.
accueil parJosé ,nous n'avons pas eu l'occasion de voirJenny(une petite fille est née pendant notre séjour).Disponibilité à chaque fois que nous avons eu besoin.
métro ligne A ou C très proche,rapide.quartier populaire.aucune crainte de rentrer tard le soir.A conseiller .
Wir haben 11 Tage in einem sehr komfortabelen Apartment gewohnt.
Wir waren 4 Personen auf 3 Schlafräume verteilt, was sehr entspannend war. Das Apartment ist nett und praktisch eingerichtet und sehr sauber, so dass wir uns bestens dort aufhalten konnten. Jose und Jenny sind ausgesprochen herzliche und zuvorkommende Gastgeber, die uns bei der Anreise alle wichtigen Informationen zukommen ließen. Die Subway ist in 5 Minuten erreichbar und die Fultonstreet bietet alles was man als Reisender braucht, um sich selber zu versorgen. Wir haben uns sehr sicher gefühlt und würden dort jederzeit wieder wohnen wollen. Das Preisleistungsverhältnis ist optimal!
Ferner bietet die Lage des Hauses , übrigens mit einem Busstop des JFK Flughafenbusses vor der Haustür, einen optimalen Ausgangspunkt für die Erkundung aller umliegenden Viertel: Clinton Hill, Prospect Park und Bedford. Wir blicken auf eine wunderbare Zeit zurück!

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! :)
