Vered is a public school art & design teacher (6th-12th grade) and Olivier is a DJ/producer.
We are fun-loving globe-trotters who enjoy hosting fellow travelers!
We had a good time staying with Vered and Olivier. They are both really friendly and always up for a chat. When we arrived, they gave us some tips and in the room there are a few tourist guides as well.
The room was clean, so was the bathroom right next to it. I loved the house, it had a nice atmosphere to it. In the room was an airconditioner, which was needed at some point, so very welcome. It also helps to block out the noise from the streets, which could be quite a lot at some times. But that's not something Vered and Olivier can do anything about :)
The house is situated in Brooklyn, so it takes you about 45 minutes to get to Manhattan centre (say Times Square for example). We were in New York for 7 days, so that wasn't really a problem for us.
We had a lovely time in New York, thanks for everything.
The bed was clean, the air conditioner in the bedroom worked and Vered & Olivier were gracious. However, I left the AC cord in the bedroom. I discovered this when I unpacked. When I called Olivier, he told me that he could not afford the fee to mail it back. This is odd since this rental was a transfer from another place that didn’t work out so this was unexpected money. If someone left something important to them in my place I would definitely return it. What a bummer!
Vered & Olivier were very nice and welcoming. They gave us some really useful advices and helped us when we had questions.
The flat and the room were really great and clean. The subway is at about five minutes (by walk) and you will find some good restaurants and shops around. The neighbourhood is safe, so really a nice place to stay few days !!
Thanks Vered & Olivier for the great experience !!
Great hosts! Vered and Olivier have been very considerate and helpful, and they gave us excellent hints. Their home was a perfect place to start exploring NYC, well connected to Manhattan by subway (2 stations at not even 5-min walking distance from home) and neighborhood is ok - never felt unsafe even coming back at night - with all basic facilities at walking distance - groceries, etc.. The room is not very big but just perfect for a short stay (we stayed 5 days and felt comfortable!) and we really loved the house! We warmly recommend Vered and Olivier's place and can't wait for visiting again.... sooner or later.
Thank you! Andrea & Giorgia
Notre séjour chez Vered et Olivier a été une expérience extraordinaire.Outre l'appartement, très confortable et plein de charme, celui-ci est situé à quelques pas d'une station de métro et au coeur du quartier de Williamsburg. Lieu qui bouillonne tant sur le plan des arts, que celui de la mode, de la musique et de la nourriture (boutiques et restaurants bio). Vered et Olivier sont des hôtes charmants et toujours prêts à offrir conseils et adresses utiles. Plus qu'un camp de base pour visiter New York, un but en soi de voyage.
Vered and Olivier were great hosts, very welcoming and friendly and willing to give all sorts of tips for free concerts and trips. Their house is beautiful, cosy and stylish. The room is small, but clean and the bed is comfy. The G train which takes you to Manhattan or other Brooklyn neighboorhoods has a bit irregular time tables, and you always need to transfer, but we've managed! The restaurant just around the corner is very nice: Corlette NY. And another tip: go see Williamsburg, just three stops with the G train, for beautiful Manhattan skyline and the great Brooklyn Flea/Artists Market in the weekend.
We had an amazing stay at Vered and Olivier's. They both are so nice! They gave us a lot of tips to visit New York, the room was super comfortable and their house is very close to the subway. They truly are great hosts and people and we totally recommend you to stay at their home!
Fresh towels, fresh tips, fresh sidewalks and fresh news from the past stars of the 90's by Oliver, that was a very fresh sojourn in a lovely home !
Thanks for everything
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time staying at Vered and Olivier's place. They are the most down to earth, friendly, welcoming couples you'll ever meet. Their place is very cozy, clean, and offer you whatever you may need when traveling.
When we got there, they gave us a lot of recommendations to eat and see. There are a lot of walkable bars and eateries around their place as well and the subway isn't that far either.
Overall, we would definitely recommend this place on your next stay to New York. You will not be disappointed. :)
We stayed at Vered and Olivier appartement for a full week and had a very great time. They're both really welcoming and have a lot of good insights on New York.
The appartement is really really great, very comfy and cozy, which is absolutely perfect after a long day of walking in NY.
It's really close to a G train metro station, it can be between 30 to 45 min to go to any place in Manhattan, so if you're here just for a couple of days it can be a little far away from the main interests if it's your first time in NY, otherwise it's a great opportunity to experience a true authentic NY lifestyle in a true authentic Brooklyn neighborhood.
Vered and Oli extended there stay at my place and they continued to be great right up to the end. I had no problem with this wonderful couple. Would welcome them back any time.
I highly recommend Vered and Olivier!! What a great fun couple. They are very respectful, thoughtful, funny and fun! Two thumbs way up!
Vered was a friend of a friend of ours, now she is just a friend :)
We stayed with Vered in Brooklyn New York last summer and had GREAT hospitality. The place was super comfortable, clean, and great company, what ells could you ask for?
Vered, thanks for hosting us, you are the best!
Vered is an outstanding person. Aside from being a brilliant teacher and artist, she is a generous and fun gal, who is always a pleasure to be around. She is a fabulous host and always knows about the countless fun activities in NYC. From art exhibits to concerts to cuisine of all types, Vered knows where it's at! Having also lived with her in her Bed-Stuy haven for a year, I can vouch for it's welcoming, funky homeyness that Vered has tastefully created. Her place is truly a gem and a perfect summer stay, convenient for exploring Brooklyn, which is really where it's at!
