And then the longer description... :)
We are offering our beautiful 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 during your stay (we will stay downstairs).
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 renovated it completely and it has 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 upcoming Crown Heights and Bedford Styvesant neighborhoods. This is a very typical Middle-Class Brooklyn neighborhood where you can experience real New York life!
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 10-15 minutes walk away from our house. There is a corner store "deli" just on the corner of our street that sells drinks, snacks and sandwiches etc.
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! :)
Interaction with Guests
We will be present during your stay in the same house. We will be staying below in a separate unit.
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!!! :)
Die Kommunikation mit Jenny und Jose war sehr herzlich. Auf unsere Fragen haben wir sofort und genaue Antworten bekommen. Die Ankunft war sehr gut organisiert, wir haben uns sofort zurecht gefunden. Die Beschreibungen von Jenny und Jose zur Unterkunft, zur Nachbarschaft und besonders zu den Angaben zu Verpflegungsmöglichkeiten, Infos zur U-Bahn, zu Taxi usw. waren sehr genau und immer hilfreich. Wir haben uns in der Wohnung und in der Gegend immer wohl und sicher gefühlt. Als Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge in alle Richtungen ist der Standort der Wohnung sehr gut geeignet. Wir können die Wohnung von Jenny und Jose jederzeit weiterempfehlen.
Appartement très lumineux agréable â à vivre. Jenny et jose sont charmants. Très à l'écoute de nos besoins. Quartier de petites rues avec des browstones typiques. Voie ferrée pas très loin on entend les trains mais ils sont rares la nuit. Proximité aussi d'un grand hôpital donc sirènes ambulances assez fréquemment entendues. Globalement une adresse à recommander. Proche bus et métro. Manhattan est facilement accessible
Très bon accueil de la part de Jenny, disponible pour des renseignements. Appartement agréable, proche du métro.
Appartement fidèle à la description assez bruyant (métro, voitures) mais on s'y habitue vite. Jenny est très accueillante et réactive lorsque nous lui avons posé des questions d'organisation... À 5 mins du métro et des commerces utiles: laverie, magasins alimentaires. Très pratique pour découvrir new York et ses quartiers, tranquille même lorsque l'on rentre tard.
We enjoyed staying in this great Brooklyn apartment which satisfied our expectations.
It was very cozy and clean with a functional bathroom.
The kitchen provided us with what we needed to cook our meals - using ingredients bought in the supermarket 10-15 min. walk away.
From two of the three beautiful bedrooms – our two kids was very satisfied ‘with their own’ – was there a fantastic sight to Lower Manhattan
It was easy to come around thanks to the nearby subway station (10 min. away) and the bus to JFK outside the door was very useful for us.
Jenny and Jose was very helpful and quick to answer our mail-questions.
We would love to come back and to recommend this apartment (already done).
We had a wonderful time in NYC and felt absolutely comfortable at Jenny's house. The apartment is spacious, clean and just like the description here. We had a short way to the subway and than about 20 min to downtown Manhattan.
Unfortunately we didn't meet Jenny and Jose while our staying, but we emailed when there were questions and got answers immediately. At our next visit in New York I'm sure we will return to this great location in Brooklyn.

Merci a Jenny et Jose pour ce séjour. Hôtes très disponibles mais aussi très discrets . Appartement propre et conforme à la description . Avons rte surpris par le bruit de la rue que nous envisagions plus important. Tout s'est bien passé. Ligne métro C pour Manhattan située à quelques pas de la maison et bus pour l'aéroport juste devant la porte. Super.
Nous recommandons cet appartement.
Première expérience air b&b validée avec succès.

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! :)
