Wir waren drei Wochen in Aslis Wohnung und haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Der Kontakt mit Asli war unkompliziert und angenehm, sie hat zuverlässig alle Fragen beantwortet. Sie ist eine sehr freundliche Gastgeberin und hat uns viele Informationen gebeben. Die Wohnung ist hell und die Räume sind grosszügig. Die Aussicht von der kleinen Dachterrasse ist spektakulär. Mehrere Subway-Stationen mit Zügen in alle Richtungen von New York sind in ca. 10 Minuten zu erreichen, das Quartier ist erholsam ruhig, freundlich, sicher. Restaurants und Supermärkte sind ganz in der Nähe, ebenfalls Pärke und Brooklyns grosser Botanischer Garten.
Vor und hinter dem Haus werden gerade Baustellen für den Bau von grossen Wohnhäuser vorbereitet (Stand April 2014), lärmempfindliche Menschen könnten sich dadurch gestört fühlen. Ansonsten ist die Wohnung wirklich sehr zu empfehlen!
Really nice and cosy apartment, located (email hidden)ly, yet quiet, neighborhood. Asli and her husband are very welcoming. The rooftop is amazing, perfect for a sunset aperitivo. We had a great stay, thank you!
We were three people and stayed at the apartment for two weeks, having a very good time there. The apartment was was spacious and good usable for three people (even more if couples are travelling together). It was light and relatively quiet. Since it was cold outside it was good to have a good heating. There was even a fireplace (which we did not use). Good to have wifi, too.
The neighbourhood is diverse and interesting with a lot of restaurants and bars around. We particularly enjoyed a bookshop on Vanderbilt Avenue. To commute into Manhattan takes about 30 minutes altogether.
Our host lived next door and were very nice and welcoming. We can definitely recommend a stay in this flat.
We had a great time at Asli's apartment.
It's well located, close to the subway and with a lot of amenities in the zone ( bars, restaurants, supermarkets, Prospect Park,etc).
Everything was like Asli says in the description, nice and comfortable to host 3 or 4 people. The rooftop view is fantastic.
Asli was a great host. She gave us all the info, and even she was not in the apartment next door during our stay she responded all our mails and doubts.
We would stay at Asli's again if we come back!
Duplex agréable, bien ventilé et assez calme ; propriétaires agréables aussi. Ils nous ont donné quelques bonnes adresses de restaurants dans le coin, tous différents ; je recommande le Vanderbilt tout proche. Brooklyn Museum remarquable ainsi que le Botanic Garden et pas loin à pied. JFK à une heure de métro. Manhattan à une demi-heure. Bonne laverie deux rues plus haut sur Washington St. Possibilité de location de voiture à prix abordable chez Enterprise sur Livingston St. (downtown Brooklyn).
The apartment was absolutely lovely! We were warmly welcomed by Asli and Matteo. They were extremely helpful and caring hosts, they lived right next door and so it was easy to ask them anything about the apartment and other things. They suggested great restaurants and cafes in the area, which they supplied a map of.
The location of the apartment is ideal. The subway was easy and practical to access, several stations are near. So it was easy to go to different parts of New York in just a few minutes. Just two blocks down there are lots of nice shops and restaurants, especially on Vanderbilt Av. And if you walk a few blocks more you will find Park Slope, which has many hip shops and restaurants.
The apartment was in great condition, and the surroundings of the apartment were peaceful. The roof top terrace was superb, especially in the evenings when it wasn't too hot and you could watch the sun set behind the Manhattan skyline.
All in all the stay in the apartment was extraordinary. We enjoyed our time very much, thank you Asli and Matteo! If we ever come back to Brooklyn, we will definitely stay in this apartment and we highly recommend it to others. :)
We LOVED our stay at Asli and Matteos's place!
We were four people staying together in the apt for two weeks and there were a lot of space for all of us.
We really enjoyed the area, it was perfect for us with nice restaurants and bars near by. All the people we met were as friendly as you can ever imagine and we felt right at home.
We also really love Brooklyn so it was a great location to explore it, we would just start from the apartment and walk around for hours heading any direction and it always turned into an awesome day with fun stuff happening. Spoken word, live music shows, release partys, clubs, exhibitions... we just stumbled across things to do all the time wirthout ever feeling like tourists and we actually made a lot of friends.
When it comes to Asli and Matteo- they're just the complete dream hosts. Warm, thoughtful, helpful and down to earth. They made us feel so comfortable! They also really went out of their way to help us several times, always with smiles on their faces and that I will never forget.
To sum it up, the apt is lovely, the roof top with the view is just astonishing, the area is friendly and exciting, the price is great- and on top of all this, what really will stay with us and make us remember our two weeks in Brooklyn for a long time is the awesome hosting of Asli and Matteo.
Looking for a place to stay for the first time in NYC? Do not afraid to stay in Brooklyn. Yes, Brooklyn is too huge but considering Asli's apartment it's a good place.
We lived here 3 weeks. I want to say Asli "thank you" for her patience during our email communication. We have changed our trip details more than twice and offered various options to rent apt. We did it )))
The apt is on 4th floor, has pretty large living room with fireplace, its shared with kitchen where you may find all stuff necessary for cooking. The 1st bedroom is on the 1st floor (yes, to get to the 2nd one u have to go upstairs - it looks like apt with 2 floors). It has large bed comfortable for two. The upstairs bedroom has also good bed and exit to the rooftop ))) The bathroom is good, has two sinks (let your friends to save time in the morning;)). Pay attention to the toilet - it's weak (actually the most of toilets in US has the same problem:)) - so do not drop too much paper and other stuff in, use bin ))
The subway is in 10 minutes from building - we preferred yellow line (Q express train) with Bergen station or even Atlantic Avenue / Barclays Center that let u to get to Times Square in 20 minutes.
The Prospect Heights is a nice neighborhood. There are no crowds like on 5th Avenue, some street looks beautiful like in Greenwich Village )) Take Washington Avenue and you reach Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Prospect park. Have a breakfast at Tom's Dinner (782 Washington Avenue). Taste bagels in Bergen Bagel (473 Bergen Street) near Bergen subway station. Visit new Barclays Arena ( recommend to book tickets for concerts or sport games in advance to get good price). Need cheap clothes - there is Marshalls store near Barclays Arena on Atlantic Avenue.
There are no skyscrapers in Prospect Heights, and probably you will be confused looking at the street using (website hidden) Map but, believe me guys I've been to NY 5 times and lived in various apt on Manhattan, it's "nothing over" apt with "what you need" at a reasonable price in a good location. How to get in - take a cab through Atlantic avenue from JFK, it cost us $37. From LaGuardia our friend got in terrible traffic on the highway and paid $80 - maybe u should avoid highways ))
Asli lives next door and be sure that you even will not meet with her during your staying ))
There was comment about the neighbor that lives downstairs and doesn't like when people walking too loud upstairs. Just be respectful and treat people the way you want to be treated
Enjoy your stay)))
I had such a great stay at Asli and Matteo's apartment. They were very welcoming, extremely helpful and really lovely. The apartment was situated close to shops, bars and some great restaurants and an easy commute into Manhattan only 20 mins. You have a roof terrace, with amazing views, perfect in the summer for BBQ's.
I stayed 24 days in Asli,s apartment. We had a great time there. Asli and Matteo were friendly and helped us in everything we needed.
The appartment is confortable, bright and quiet and the location is really good connected by public transport.
