About the apartment:
The apartment is indeed modern and spacious, has enough utilities you can use (big refrigerator and stove, bathtub, super large smart TV and so on) and is located near a subway stop where you can take two subways. Do keep in mind that Manhattan is at least half an hour away from where you're staying. Even within Brooklyn traveling can take some time.
About the owner:
Nkosi met us at the apartment and gave us some useful information and was reachable when needed.
About the safety and neighborhood:
There's a security guard that has to open the gate for every person that wants to go inside the building. The Caribbean atmosphere in this part of Brooklyn made us feel right at home. Overall we felt safe in the neighborhood, but do use your street smart when you go out late at night. The same as you would anywhere else. Don't be alarmed by all the sirens you hear, the apartment is located a few blocks away from a hospital. :)
Overall, this is an apartment that we would recommend to other people if they are looking to stay in an apartment in New York in a somewhat more quiet area.
We had a great six day stay in NYC at Nkosi's apartment. Was definitely roomy enough for four people with all the amenities at hand. Felt very safe and with the subway close by was easy to travel into Manhatten. Got in later than expected first night, however Nkosi was very understanding and met us at the apartment to give us the keys. Would stay here again and recommend this place to anyone wanting to get a more diversified experience instead of just Manhatten and Time Square.
Nous sommes très satisfaits de notre séjour dans l'appartement de N'Kosi. Nous y avons séjourné à 7. Le logement était assez grand pour nous 7.
La photo principale, qui représente une grande pièce conviviale, correspond à la réalité.
L'appartement est situé dans une résidence calme avec un gardien.
L'accès au métro, situé à deux blocs, est très facile.
Pour ceux que ça intéresse, Prospect Park n'est pas très loin. Très beau parc qui est idéal pour les joggers.
Pour terminer, le rapport qualité/prix est très bon.
Me and my friends had a great time staying in Flatbush for a week. Nkosi was on hand to meet us and even directed the taxi driver to the apartment. He gave us advice on where to go out and there were even take away menus. He was easy to get hold of if we hand any questions. The apartment was clean, spacious and there was more than enough room for the four of us. With Church Avenue subway close by we were never too far from Manhatten. The taxis back in the evening were cheap too, especially split between the four of us! it We would definitely recommend it to others as we felt extremely safe in the apartment.
I just returned from a lovely stay in Nkosi's apartment. I spent a few nights on my own as my girls had to return to London before me and I felt perfectly safe. It is gated building with a guard and a cozy apartment. We quickly felt at home. Nkosi helped us find places to eat etc and there is a subway station just a couple of blocks away. We never paid more than 30 dollars to get from manhattan back to Brooklyn after a night out.
We enjoyed our stay in this friendly neighbourhood and when we return in the summer we hope the apartment is available for us again.
Nkosi's nice apartment was wonderful and everything worked out fine with keys and everything else. The oven didn't work at the time of our stay, but other than than we've got nothing to complain about. The area is fine, although if you're planning to go often ro Manhattan, beware that that traveling on the subway takes the better part of an hour.
Awsome and stylish apartment with all the amenities in a safe neighborhood. Internet TV was a plus and very helpful in finding events and getting directions. Check-in went smooth with no delays, Mr. Steele was available with keys and fresh linens. I will definately like to stay again for my next visit. Parking wasn't too bad, I was able to find parking within a 1 block radius or directly in front of building every night during my stay.
What an experience my friend & I had! The building is safe, clean & the guards at the gate always made us feel welcome & were very helpful. I didn't get to meet Nikosi but my friend did. He was very helpful & quick if there was anything that needed attending to.
There was the block party the 1st weekend & we joined in to get to know our neighbours. Wonderful people!!
It's easy to get into the city especially if you get the express 5. Cabs are about $30 if you require. It was very safe, multicultural & we were always greeted by the other tenants. Great food close by.
We missed having a toaster but made use of the stove lol.
The apartment was clean & tidy. All that we needed as our base.
Definitely recommend the apartment.
I really enjoyed my stay at Nkosi place I stayed from Thursday to Monday morning to attend a White Party about 10 minutes away. He let me check in early which was great because I was jetlagged from my trip to CA. I loved the decor of the apt and that the building is secure, a gate and a door before going up in the elevator. My sister was supposed to stay with me from FL but she could not make it so my daughter stayed with me to attend a wedding. My younger sister and bro in law was attending the White Party to celebrate their wedding anniversary so I wanted to cook dinner to save money, but the oven was not working. But I just cooked on top of the stove so I made it work. My family also loves the place and my daughter wanted to book in the future. Also it is close to stores and the 2 train which is a plus. All in all great stay and will book again!
We enjoyed our 6 day trip to NY and also enjoyed the apartment very much. It was very nicely decorated and furnished, and very clean. I felt safe because we needed 3 keys - one for the gate, one to get in the building, and one for the apartment. Everyone in the building was friendly and helpful. My husband and I were a little nervous about the neighborhood -- walking home late at night from the subway, so the first night we took a taxi from Manhattan for @ $40. After that we walked home from the subway and everything was just fine. There were always lots of people out and about, and we never had a problem. The subway took about 35 minutes to Manhattan depending on the time of day. There are some grocery stores close by to get snacks, etc. Make sure you go to downtown Brooklyn. It is very nice and not too far away. Also I loved that there were 2 bedrooms. We used one for sleeping and the other to store our suitcases and as a dressing room. Both beds were very comfortable. All in all, a very good experience. I would definitely recommend it to others.
