Olivia's apartment is delightful and perfect for a family vacation. It's in a quiet location with easy on-street parking, there are plenty of well-priced and tasty take outs and cafés nearby (as well as more than a few indulgent spots), and it's handy to a couple of subway lines so it's easy to zip over to Manhattan and back. The apartment is spacious, bright and filled with interesting bits and pieces, and the walls are adorned with many artworks by Olivia's young sons, which makes it particularly welcoming for other children. Olivia was also lovely to deal with at all times, and especially accommodating when we got held up by traffic/roadworks coming into NYC.
This apartment makes a great base for exploring Brooklyn and Manhattan: it beats a poky, overpriced Midtown hotel room hands down!
Olivia gaf ons een zeer welkom gevoel, haar man verwachtte ons en liet ons alles zien en weten wat we nodig hadden. Het appartement was zeer ruim, prima om daar met een gezin in te verblijven. De omgeving was prettig, op zondag hebben we de dienst in de Emanuel baptist Church bijgewoond en ook daar voelden we ons heel welkom. Bijzonder om mee te maken. Lekkere koffietentjes in de buurt en met de metro ben je in een half uurtje in Manhattan. Eerste dag gelopen naar de brooklyn bridge (3 kwartier lopen). Ik kan dit appartement aan iedereen aan bevelen.
ich bin mit meinem mann und meinen zwei töchtern (16 und 19 jahre) nach new york gereist und wir haben uns in dieser wohnung sofort sehr wohl gefühlt. geschmackvoll eingerichtet und sehr funktionell mit waschmaschine, trockner, spühlmaschine und perfekt eingerichteter küche versehen liegt die wohnung in einer schönen, grünen zone brooklyns. nette nachbarschaft und günstig gelegen nähe u-bahn station. weiteres befinden sich supermärkte und kleine nette restaurants in der nähe. nach einem ermüdenden tag in new york kehrten wir immer sehr gerne in die wohnung zurück und nachts konnte man immer sehr gut schlafen.
La description du logement correspond tout à fait à la réalité. Le logement est clair, calme et très agréable. Après une journée passée dans la chaleur et le bruit de Manhattan, nous avons apprécié la tranquillité du
quartier et du logement.
Le logement est à 3 minutes à pied du métro Classon Avenue ce qui permet de se rendre à Lower Manhattan en 30 min et en moins d'une heure sur la plupart des sites touristiques.
Olivia s'est montrée disponible et les échanges avant le départ et pendant le séjour ont été chaleureux.
Olivia’s apartment is as nice as it looks in the photographs. It is also spacious and comfortable with all the amenities you need in case you want to cook o stay longer in it which wasn’t our case as we were most of the day walking around New York. The neighborhood is quiet and people living there showed to be really kind and nice. There are many beautiful coffee shops and restaurants all around. We wanted to visit Manhattan but at the same time we wished to stay in a quieter place which made the apartment perfect for us. We only met Olivia on the first day as she was out on holiday but she and her husband were very nice and provided us with a place to leave our baggage while we couldn’t enter the apartment. She also provided us with her telephone number in case we needed anything which was not the case.
The apartment was perfect, very clean, a lots of light and the bed was comfortable. The neighborhood is safe and there are nice restaurants and grocery stores nearby. That's a really nice place to rent.
My mom and I stayed 10 nights in Olivia's apartment and it could not have been better. The apartment is on is very quiet We didn't have any noise problems and sleep well each night, ready for the next day out.
The location of the apartment is very good. It is not Manhattan but still close enough not to be spending too long catching the subway. It is only few minutes walk to the green line train and could change a couple stations down the line and be in downtown in less than 15 minutes.
In the neighborhood is a few little bar and coffee houses and food markets.
If I get back to New York, I would certainly be happy to stay in Olivia's apartment again.
Most importantly, Olivia and her husband Richard are two very accommodating people. They cater to every possible need of the guest. The apartment is in a very calm locality of south western brooklyn, well connected by train services from "classons avenue" stop. Although the frequency of trains is not as good on the manhattan or even other parts of Brooklyn, it was very convenient! The location is close to a lot of eateries and this gave us loads of dining choices when we were not sight seeing. We were 6 in total. 4 adults and twin infants. The apartment was spacious enough for all of us and this considering the running around of our "early toddlers".
Olivia went out of the way by providing cribs for our kids. She also provided us with a compact vacuum cleaner, on request, that helped us to keep the apartment reasonably clean. In spite of our busy schedule, she made it a point to visit us at least once on the day of leaving (she was on vacation for most of our stay period). This winter was particularly cold due to an upcoming "polar vortex" on the east coast of USA. This made the bigger bedroom chilly during nights. But, the adjustable climate control made sure that this was countered.
I strongly recommend this apartment for family of 4 adults.
My stay at Olivia's was excellent! The apartment is equipped with everything you need to feel at home. The area is very quiet and has great places to eat. Olivia is a very accommodating and gracious host. I would highly recommend her place to anyone who wishes to experience living in a true Brooklyn neighborhood!
My wife and I stayed 10 nights in Olivia's apartment and it could not have been better. Right from when we arrived to grab the keys through til when we had a late chceckout, Olivia was great.
The location of the apartment was what we wanted....away from the noise and pace of Manhattan....but still close enough not to be spending too long catching the subway. We were only few minutes walk to the green line train, and could change a couple stations down the line and be in downtown in less than 15 minutes.
A few nice little places to eat and a supermarket, where we shopped, were all within a 5 minute walk.
The street the apartment is on is very quiet We didn't have any nosie problems and sleep well each night, ready for the next day out. As others have said, the apartments looks just like the photos, and the appliances were all first rate.
When ever we get back to New York, I would certainly be happy to stay in Olivia's apartment again.
Olivia stayed at our house with her parents and two young sons. They were excellent guests: friendly, communicative, easy-going, clean, respectful, and appreciative. We would love to host them again!
Olivia and her family were wonderful guests. They made very few demands and were pleasant to deal with. They left the house in great condition too. I would recommend them and any members.
Olivia and her group were great guests. Olivia was responsive and polite before her arrival and most importantly, she took good care of our house during her stay. We would be happy to have her back anytime and would recommend her to other hosts.
Olivia and her family were lovely guests. She was very easy to make arrangements and always clear and prompt in her communications. She took great care of the cottage during her stay and left it in good shape.
Great guests but I decided I wanted to rent my home as a retreat
Olivia and I have been close friends for many years now. She is a lovely and trustworthy person who values her guests. The large spacious apt is an oasis of serenity in New York. It is well located near the subway station, small cafes, and restaurants. It is extremely quiet on a beautiful street. Olivia is an artist and the apt is very well decorated as well as functional. It is perfect for families, couples, or friends. I really recommend staying at her place. She is reliable and available to her guests. Enjoy Brooklyn!
Olivia, my fashionable, creative colleague, will make you feel right at home during your stay. Olivia is a pleasure to work with and I'd stay at her apartment anytime-she is constantly making desserts for the office, so I know she'd be very accommodating with her guests! Olivia's apartment is meticulous, beautiful and located in a prime location. It's close to restaurants, transportation, BAM and more! I highly recommend Olivia's apartment to any family or couple looking for a getaway in the heart of Brooklyn.
Olivia and I have been friends for over 15 years. We are both from France and have lived less than a block away for about 10 years.
Olivia is an amazing host!
She is extremely well organized & clean, kind and generous, has great taste and always goes the extra step to make people happy and comfortable whenever hosting or coming to your place as a guest.
Her apt. is modern, very tasteful and clean, in the friendly and uniquely diverse neighborhood of Clinton Hill.
An ideal stay for any visitor.
Olivia is a great host ! She welcomes you more than kindly in her beautiful apartment. The place has the best location, close to the subway, in a quiet but yet lively neighborhood, all you need after a long, busy and tiring day visiting Manhattan or Brooklyn. The apartment is more than comfortable, beautifully decorated, with all you need in it to feel at home ! The four of us ( 2 couples) had the best time thanks to her and her lovely family ! I hope we will have other opportunities in the future to go back !
