We were a family of 5 persons who lived iJJs apartment.
The two sovværelser had 3 beds.
With a good air mattress, we could just fit in the two rooms.
It gave us a living room and kitchen for relaxing in the evening.
These spaces are bright, functional and well furnished.
I was surprised at the apartment were 30 miniutter with Subway from Manhattan. But it was my mistake not to have considered it proper.
We were very pleased with jj`s introduction to the area and the apartment. JJ was very helpful, and We could get her on the phone when we needed it.

JJ was a great host to our family, of five, during our seven day visit. She greeted us in the apartment when we arrived very late, due to our late flight. She was also very quick at responding when we needed her help and she called us during our stay to make sure everything was ok.
The apartment and the surroundings was according to the description and pictures. We liked the apartment, especially the kitchen where we cooked a lot of food.
We had a great week in NYC.
We loved staying at JJs condo in Brooklyn. My two daughters, my son and I had plenty of room. It was a short hike to the subway and there we lots of great shops on the way. The condo was big for NYC and had a great kitchen. The neighbors were friendly too. We highly recommend this as home site for your travels around the city - very safe and convenient.
This was a really pleasant experience. Jj was there to help us to get settled and she even gave her and her husbands phone numbers if we had any questions or concerns during our stay. The apartment is really nice and cozy and me and my family really enjoyed staying there. The location is also great; it's quiet neighborhood in Brooklyn, yet the subway is near and it takes only like 30 minutes to get everywhere. I definitely recommend everyone to stay there!
JJ was such a great host. The apartment was perfect, modern and clean. And the location is great too. My family stayed there during my wedding weekend, and really enjoyed themselves.
Our family loved our stay in JJ's condo! It is close to subway lines into Manhattan, had lots of restaurant choice in every direction we would walk, and a great co-op grocery store a few blocks away. The apartment is super clean, quiet, hip, and a fun place to stay! We especially liked walking the neighborhood streets and discovering Brooklyn. JJ was super easy to communicate with and made our whole experience perfect! We highly recommend it if you plan to visit NYC.
