Our stay here was great! The location was great, grocery markets, really nice restaurants and close to subway stations that takes you to either manhattan or different parts of Brooklyn. And the Brooklyn Flea market was just around the corner (on saturdays). Our daughter loved the playgrounds that were just few hundred meters away from the house. The room was as in the pictures, clean and had everything you would need during your stay. Shar (the hostess) was really nice and helpful, she even drove my wife to the hospital in the middle of the night and stayed at the hospital with her the whole night!
We loved our stay at the Brooklyn Waverly one bedroom with Sahr Ali and her son! It was the perfect location for enjoying New York and Brooklyn, and a lovely, clean, well-equipped space to come back to after a tiring day out & about. We're traveling with our 13 month old son (and teenage daughter) and this was a great baby friendly space. Sahr was available to help with any inquiries (and managed to arrange a baby carseat for us, saving us $75 in hire fees) . As well as fresh lemonade and cupcakes when we arrived, the fridge was well-stocked with yoghurt, milk, bread, etc so we could have breakfast at home. The place really worked as a one bedroom apartment - with our own little kitchenette and a half bathroom on our level and a full bathroom up the stairs. We also had access to the backyard, and sometimes had our breakfast at the table out there. The neighborhood was lovely - supermarket, laundromat, great restaurants, subway, yoga studio all within easy walking distance. And the Brooklyn flea market on Saturdays was just a couple of blocks away. Thanks Sahr for your kindness & hospitality!
After a tiring drive from Toronto, my daughter and son-in-law and myself were welcomed to the Waverly by Ali with some lemonade & cookies, then directed to a fantastic bistro for a late meal.
The apartment was clean, cool, and comfortable. As mentioned by others, lots of nice touches - fruit bowl, well stocked mini fridge (juice, milk, water, eggs etc.). Great neighbourhood to explore & perfect for coffee addicts such as myself. A parking spot opened up in front of the Waverly just as we arrived and my car sat untouched and unticketed for 4 nights/5 days. The subway was a short stroll away.
Ali was never intrusive but made sure we were happy with everything and was always helpful and genuine.
It made our visit to New York go so smoothly...thanks Ali!
Our stay with Sahr in her charming one bedroom was just that--charming! It was also comfortable, cool (in temperature), convenient and quiet.
Sahr was a gracious, thoughtful and a very hospitable hostess that went the extra mile to ensure that our stay was pleasurable. The location was very convenient and met our needs; there was an abundance of parking spots steps away from her front door.
We would recommend this Charming one bedroom studio to anyone considering it!
The place is simply wonderful - the apartment is spacious, nicely decorated, and include a small kitchen area for convenience. Our host, Sahr, has obviously taken great pains to make guests comfortable in the apartment by making the apartment spick and span. It smelled really great as well. We were greeted with a large bowl of fresh cherries and a well-stocked refrigerator with eggs and juices upon check-in. Sahr also gave us great advice and suggestions regarding the activities around our neighbourhood. We had a truly great time staying here and look forward to returning soon.

About the Host, Sahr
Greetings! I am working mother and artist who lives in one of he best neighborhoods in New York City with my teenaged son, Idriys, and our adorable toy poodle, Chester. We have been offering our properties since 2010. I am an actor and writer who is now beginning to study music. My son, Idriys, is my favorite thing. He loves art, sports, literature and music and is extremely good with small children (and animals) if you ever need a babysitter. We are a well traveled family having visited several countries on every continent except Australia (next stop :)). Idriys is studying Spanish, French, and Mandarin in school , and I am picking up a bit of each myself. We adopted our pup Chester in May 2015. He is a sweet dog who loves people and animals. He is very well-behaved and gives us and our guests love but also space. He's very cool, no begging or barking and very well-mannered. The perfect dog for us! In addition to travel we love good food, art, good people, and hosting! What started out as a financial endeavor has turned out to be so much more. Through this business, we have met the loveliest people from all over the world many of whom have become people we truly consider friends. Its not unusual that our guests wind up inviting us to see a show, share a meal, or exploring the city with them. What a wonderful way to make a living by providing a peaceful environment and good energy to people during their travels. We hope to do the same for you!
