The experience was very good the host was inviting and she took care of everything. the apartment was nice , we definitely liked the big screen TV with Direct TV (was good for the kids)
Larendee's apartment was perfect for us! We came to NYC for business and the location was ideal for being so close to Dumbo. The secure parking was great! We felt safe and secure in our apartment at all times. The apartment itself was lovely! Very clean and surprisingly bigger than expected! The neighborhood was quite welcoming and every kind of food was within a mile or so away. I would definately recommend a stay at Larendee's apartment!
We had a great experience at Larendee's place and would recommend it to anyone. We arrived early which was not a problem as they let us check in immediately. They also followed up with us the first night to make sure everything was going well. As others have mentioned the apartment is in the storage locker facility and feels safe and is locked after 8pm.
The beds are very comfortable and the space is plenty big. Also, the shower has great pressure and stayed warm. They also provide an iron and board plus a hairdryer that we used. Everything that we needed was available.
The subway is not too far of a walk (re in a hurry.
Great place! Thanks for accommodating us last minute. Worked perfectly for our needs.
Large appartement in a quiet neighborhood of Brooklyn. The check in/check out was very easy since member of the staff were available. This appartment was a good base to visit New york. We walked from there to the Brooklyn bridge in about 25min.
While we did not meet with Larendee, the staff of the property's office were very accommodating and friendly. Tiffany was especially of great help and provided lots of useful information about getting around in the area. [It is a close 9~ minute walk to Dumbo where you can take a $4 ferry across to Manhattan, and the open-top bus tours wait near the dock. However, (website hidden)Maps is inaccurate in pinning down the nearest subway as a 13 minute walk away, when it is in fact closer to 23 minutes.]
You certainly get a sense of privacy with this apartment - and the cushy beds and pull-out leather sofa prove for a restful night's sleep. Plenty of towels and toiletries are provided (but remember your own toothpaste!). As a note, the red cushion is not in the apartment as represented in the photo -- the black leather sofa contains the pull-out bed and it fits a 6ft. male comfortably. Also, to travelers not familiar with plumbing in old cities like Brooklyn - you are not to flush toilet paper in the loo (use the wastepaper bin instead). It was fun to sleep in a double-gated apartment, which lends to the name "Fort" Green nicely. Overall, it was a cool experience to stay in Brooklyn, and I appreciate the hospitality of Larendee's staff.
Larendee was very responsive in communicating during the reservation process, and as well as to any issues that arose during our stay. The location had all the basic necessities we could need for two nights for a group of us, including satellite TV. The free, secure parking was a definite plus, especially in Brooklyn.
We stayed over the long weekend and it was great! We arrived very late (2 am) and she was there to provide us with the keys. The neighborhood was decent, you park behind 2 padlocked gates so it's safe. There's a grocery store nearby with anything you need and the apartment comes with all the essentials.
This was a very unique and convenient place to stay (especially if you're traveling by car, as there is secure, free, gated parking). The apartment itself was tidy, and had plenty of space. The location is great, is is very close to Dumbo and is very easy to find. Lots of places within walking distance for food, etc.
This apartment is quite unique in that it is within a fairly large self storage unit entrance yard with multiple vehicles and loading bays. We were able to drive in and park our car right outside the entrance to our apartment. This is a huge benefit for those wishing to travel to NYC by car and not having to pay for expensive parking or worry about finding a place in the street. Also, it was really quiet at night and secure as the courtyard is secured by a gate and a roll-down. The apartment was as advertised. We were assisted upon arrival by the staff in the office for the storage unit business. The staff were extremely nice and very accommodating. A big bonus for those interested in the Brooklyn Navy Yard is that BLDG 92, the visitor center, is right across the street. Furthermore, a CitiBike stand is right around the corner, very convenient system for getting around.
Larendee was a great guest she inquired at the last minute and I was glad we could accommodate her needs hopefully she will be back soon . She treated our house great its awesome to host other host ;-)
