My name is Rachel and I live in Brooklyn with my husband and our new baby!!! My husband is in real-estate and I'm a freelance event producer and travel a lot for work and pleasure...
Rachel responded quickly to emailed questions prior to booking, and to text messages at time of our arrival. We didn't meet Rachel during our stay, but when we arrived Mario met us promptly to help us into the studio. The location was perfect for us because it's only two blocks from our son's apartment. There are many shops and restaurants nearby, as well as the subway into Manhattan. The bed was comfortable and the small kitchen met our needs. There were a couple of hot days and the air conditioner kept the studio comfortable. We would stay here again.
Great place to stay in a great neighborhood!
This little apartment was a great base for exploring New York. The Subway is within 50 yards and it's not far to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan. Lots of local shops and places to eat in a fine neighborhood.
Nice! We were having trouble finding a place when this popped up as an option, and Rachel got back to us within an hour of our request to stay there. It is a comfortable, clean, second-floor studio in a great location - the subway is literally just steps away, a nice neighborhood to walk in. There is a nice sitting area, the bed is comfortable, we didn't miss not having TV, there is WiFi. Rachel was great about getting back to us and answering the few questions we had. Our five-day stay was delightful, we are lucky we found this place!
The apartment was clean, bright and quiet and in overall, great and comfortable for two. The location is perfect: the entry to the subway station is 20 metres from the door and it's a 20 minutes ride to Manhattan but the immediate surroundings, packed with with small shops, cafes, delis and restaurants also worth exploring and feel absolutely safe even late at night. Rachel was a wonderful and really helpful host.
The location is perfect.
Todo estuvo muy bien. Muy buena la ubicación y los consejos de Rachel. El apartamento es cómodo y tranquilo.
Superb location, comfortable bed, and kind hosts! Had fun staying here so close to everything Smith and Court streets have to offer. Close to train to head into Manhattan quickly, and slept so so good on the bed. Highly recommended
We loved the quiet and bright studio-apartment which was neat and clean just as it appeared on the images. This place was exactly what we needed to get to know Brooklyn. The neighborhood is charming with lots of nice shops,cafes and restaurants. Rachel made some recommendations. To go to Manhattan was very easy with the underground station nearby .Unfortunately we did not get to meet Rachel, but Mario gave us the key and was very helpful with our luggage.We definitely will recommend this place.
Rachel and her husband Mario were just wonderful!!
We met Mario at the apartment, he gave us the keys, showed the apartment and helped us with local transportations.
During our stay Rachel kept in touch to be sure everything was ok; after a week she even came to get the towels and get them cleaned by the same day!
Wifi connection is great, the apartment is clean and located in a fantastic area of Brooklyn, very close to Manhattan.
We'll come back for sure!
Rachel and her husband are exceptional hosts. They always go above and beyond to make you feel at home. Their home and rental spaces are very clean and in amazing locations! Anyone would be lucky to rent from them or have them as renters.
Rachel and her husband are an incredibly wonderful couple who are well versed in hospitality and traveling. They always make guests feel at home, and give extra attention to small details that other hosts might miss. Expect a personalized experience with well appointed accommodations! You can't go wrong staying in the home of these gracious hosts.
Rachel not only is a fantastic friend and co-worker she is an above and beyond hostess. Rachel goes out of her way to make sure anyone and everyone has exactly what he/she needs. She has traveled enough to know what you as a guest needs in a foreign country, city or even neighborhood. Rachel has excellent taste and can recommend great places to hang out, sight see, or enjoy a delicious bite. A stay at her beautiful apartment on Bergen Street is highly recommended.
I have known Rachel and Mario for many years and have often stayed with them. Their apartments are always clean, well decorated and very welcoming. Whatever you need to make your stay comfortable they will definitely make it happen!
