My Motto:I believe vacation means Carpe Diem and "Living your life to the fullest".
Our arrival was a bit complicated since I arrived from Miami and my family from France. My plane was late but fortunately, Nkosi was already at the apartment and met with my family. I was relieved that they were not stranded :)
Nkosi's apartment was great, with lovely furniture and a very cozy feel to it.
We were 5, and the apartment did not feel small at all. Everyone had their own space. We decided to let my grandma use one bedroom for herself, so we shared the second one. There was an inflated bed next to the main one. It was big enough for two. Only thing that is regrettable, is that though the night, the bed would completely deflate, leaving the two people who were on it almost on the floor . We would inflate it every night before going to sleep, and the result was always the same. I hope Nkosi replaces it, because it was not really comfy :)
Apart from that, we had a good stay. We felt some of the basic stuff was missing from the kitchen. It had only a few plates and no "regular" water glasses. But we accommodated with what was there, which was still good anyways lol
Finally in regards to the neighborhood, we did not really explore, but it felt very safe. Great location, as we had the choice between two subway stations, both 5 mn away. It is not really in the center of Brooklyn, and Manhattan is about 40mn away. It is a bit far, but we managed to do a lot.
On the day of our checkout, Nkosi was gracious enough to allow us to leave our luggages in the apartment until 3pm, which allowed us to enjoy fully our last hours.
I definitely recommend Nkosi's place. He is a very nice and reliable host and the apartment is very conformable. My family and I and a great time. Thanks again ~!
Very nice and clean apartment. Nkosi was easy to communicate with and a great host. Thank you!!
Wonderful Place of Brooklyn.
Nkosi Place is perfect. Clean, Cozy and also have big rooms.
Clean bathroom and Kitchen.
Kitchen have a lot of instruments of cooking. But no have Toaster.
Kettle and Coffee machine ready and steady.
First day Nkosi is waiting on Building. He gave us double key and this is very helpful. Because we are 4 people and sometimes need back home other friends.
Building is very secure. This is not common word. High fence surrounded all building complex. Also 24 hours doorman stay between door.
Building have recycle place and very close flat.
Just one issue is very important us. Unfortunately upstairs very noisy. He or she throw some heavy items and drag alone somethings. Especially late night time and early time of the day doing this.
This problem not a Nkosi issue but don't forget this.
All that's left. Happy stay 10 days...
Thank You Nkosi for everything's.
I stay in Nkosi's place for 6 nights for the second year in a row. As last year, I spend a good stay in this apartment (with my parents this year, with a friend last year).
The apartment was clean and there is everything you need inside (kitchen, cable TV, towels...).
Nkosi was flexible about checkin and checkout time and very easy to communicate with.
I have, one more time, no problems with the neighbourhood, even when coming back home late at night.
So we've pretty much fallen in love with NY...and I think that part of it was because of the really great accommodations we received in selecting Nkosi's place. I really liked the location, we were a short walk from the subway. There are lots of places to eat, grocery store and a drug store is close as well. We really didn't have to call Nkosi at all for anything, but when we did text him a few questions he was very responsive. My children also loved that the tv was fully loaded with entertaining options for them. We also liked that the location is very secure and that everyone we happened to bump into were very nice to us. We will certainly be returning to New York and would love to stay there again...Nkosi was very nice and very friendly and gave us a great breakdown of what to do, where to eat and all of his suggestions were spot on! OMG stay at Nkosi's place and try that Jamaican Buffet!!! We miss NY already!
Highly recommended. Nkosi's place is cozy, bright, clean and big. WIFI was fast and reliable, there were two modern TV sets with all kinds of entertainment options. The beds were comfortable. There was always some slight noise in the morning on and across the street, but this is NY, so I didn't expect total silence. Nkosi's organisation was flawless and I am super grateful for the late check out. I might choose a place in Manhattan next time, so I don't know if I will be back - but if one needs a spacious place in Brooklyn with kitchen at a reasonable rate, Nkosi's place is definitely a great option.
It was a nice flat, well and fancy furnished, you can find everything you will need in that flat, even the mattress and bed covers were good and clean, the host was helpful, subway is near by and Walgreens is about 5 mins walking.
Nkosi was great he waited for us on our late check in time and was available whenever we needed him. We were a group of eight and the apartment was great just like the pictures and close to the subway entrance around where little stores some open 24hrs. Overall this was a great experience and recommend this place to anyone going to New York.
Great apartment with easy access to Train to central NY!
Nkosi kindly met us late when we arrived.
Conforme à la description, l'appartement de Nkosi, spacieux et agréable, avec ses 2 grandes chambres, sa cuisine parfaitement équipée, et son salon accueillant, ravira toutes celles et ceux qui se rendront à New York pour un prochain séjour !
Nkosi s'est montré totalement disponible pour me fournir toutes les informations utiles, facilitant mon séjour
Bref, je ne peux que recommander cet appartement situé à 20 minutes de Times Square, dans une résidence calme et sécurisée de Brooklyn
