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!!! :)
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.
A comfortable and spacious apartment. There are shops nearby and the subway is a few minutes away - it takes you straight to Manhattan. It's a shame we didn't meet, but Jenny made sure everything was OK and kept in touch throughout our stay.
I would definitely take this apartment into consideration when visiting New York in the future.
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.

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! :)
