An absolutely wonderful experience staying at Bertie's home. I would say that pictures do not do this place justice. This multi-level house is very homey - the master bedroom doesn't share the floor with the other bedrooms, creating a lot of privacy and there are multiple living area spaces - family room with Apple TV, dining area with a wonderful and large reclaimed wood table and living area, and office space. Both bathrooms also are very updated and modern. We came to celebrate my mother's 60th birthday with my family and it was a great for our family size of 4. The area is also just amazing - round the corner is an amazing market the boasts an great selection of fruits, veggies, meats, pastries etc. and then there are always restaurants and coffee shops galore to explore in the area.
Beautiful appartment in a great neighbourhood. Really enjoyed exploring Park Slope (including Prospect Park) and having a wonderful, spacious, bright home-base for our family after our various expeditions into Manhattan. Bertie was a terrific host and provided helpful recommendations regarding favourite restaurants etc. in the neighbourhood.
Bertie's apartment was absolutely perfect for our family's winter holiday visit to NYC. There was an abundance of space for two parents, a parent-in-law, and two children to relax after long days out and about. Our sons especially enjoyed access to a wonderful assortment of books and a piano on which to play carols. Just minutes from the subway and well-stocked grocery stores, the location couldn't have been better for us. We did a lot of walking directly from the apartment, including to Green-Wood Cemetery and Brooklyn's Chinatown. The apartment is very clean and filled with beautiful and interest art and photos yet also extremely homey and not at all fussy. Thanks so much to Bertie and family for hosting us for our wonderful NYC adventure!
We had a great time. Arrival went smoothly, she emailed us with all the details we needed, and there was someone there to meet us as arranged. The house is two stories on ground and lower ground with multiple lounging areas, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, washing and (great) drying and the rest. This brownstone is a family residence with other family and a guest above. Bertie’s comes with toys and fluffy towels and family pics and decent reading and interesting art. It’s just off 7th Av Brooklyn, Park Slope, which is now trendy but still with artists, small business and characters and local stores, coffee, restaurants and bars. Further afield, it’s a short walk down 7th Av Brooklyn to the F Train and West Village in 30 mins and uptown and connections further on, and that magic of NYC, the Subway, runs past midnight (unlike London, Paris). There’s some trust required here on both sides. Bertie’s generous with her things and the doors are open within the building, but no worries for us. Bertie was also responsive with a few questions. Brooklyn people are friendly and this is family. We felt at home and treated it that way. Thanks to Bertie for a great visit.
The experience of staying at Bertie's was wonderful. The location was fantastic, close to amazing restaurants and Union Market for any groceries you may need. Bertie made us feel welcome and continually checked in on us to make sure everything was going smoothly. Our family had a great time and we would highly recommend this residence to anyone looking to stay in Brooklyn.
Absolutely cannot thank Bertie and Julien (and their girls) enough for allowing us to stay in their beautiful home and for making us so welcome!
The apartment is in a gorgeous part of Brooklyn, close to absolutely everything we needed - great restaurants, bars, parks for the kids, public transport and shops. We had so much fun exploring.
Bertie's detailed personal notes about the area were so very valuable and her help in suggesting activities especially suited to our interests and needs was just brilliant.
The actual apartment was clean, bright and beautiful and having the gorgeous yard on warm summer nights (complete with fireflies!) was so special.
Finally, Julien was always on hand with suggestions, kind words, a warm smile and endless patience with our chatty son!
It was just the most wonderful three weeks in New York! Thank you!
We loved everything about Bertie and Julian's beautiful home in Park Slope. We had traveled from New Zealand with our 3 young boys aged 9, 6 & 5 and stayed at this apartment for 7 nights holiday. It was perfect in every way. 3 good sized bedrooms, 3 living spaces and an amazing kitchen, the photos are exactly what you get plus so much more.Julian's artwork is stunning.We would of loved to have taken one home!!! We really enjoyed sitting out in the garden in the morning with a coffee and then at night with a well deserved wine or beer. It felt so homely and welcoming after a days sightseeing which made our first airbnb experience just wonderful.
Location was very important to us with our 3 boys as we didn't have a car so being close to subways and restaurants was a must. We walked to the subway everyday which was 5-7mins away which took us straight into Manhattan, it was very easy. The restaurants in Park Slope were great and plentiful, only 2mins walk to 7th Ave and maybe 5mins to 5thAve (great shopping & restaurants) we spent a lot of time at Prospect Park too which is just beautiful, it took us 10 mins (if not less) to walk here, so the location was perfect. We loved being in Brooklyn away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan especially after a big day sightseeing, we would of loved to have explored it a little more.Hopefully my partner and I will come back and stay again, wouldn't hesitate in booking this superb home again.
Bertie's place was wonderful. It was very clean and had all of the amenities that we needed. It was in a perfect location steps to a lot of great restaurants and the trains. Bertie was very helpful and very easy to communicate with. Her place really helped make my wedding weekend truly special for my family. I couldn't recommend it highly enough! Thank you.
Our host Bertie's communication was great, we were able to get keys etc easily. She left a great list of suggestions for the area. There was a wonderful market and bagel shop a half block away. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable, and we felt safe in the neighborhood. We were visiting our son and wife and brand new grandchild who live several blocks away, so the location was perfect for our trip. We were able to get to the subway easily and took several walks in the beautiful Prospect Park. We definitely would love to stay in this wonderful apartment if we need 3 rooms again. We loved it!
Best apartment for my family in Brooklyn.
Beautiful, clean and great host.
If I back to Brooklyn, I chose this apartment again.
I recommend this apartment for family travel in New York.
