Originally from England and I love animals!
We had a lovely extended stay in Jane's studio, it was spacious and always warm and comfortable returning at the end of the day. Jane and her husband Sante were very approachable and helpful with local knowledge. The location was also good and I suspect we would not have explored as much of Brooklyn if we had been staying in Manhattan. We would be happy to return if ever in New York.
I stayed at Jane's place during my first visit to New York. The place was great and very spacious. My flight was delayed until very late the day of my check-in and Sante (Jane's husband) waited patiently to make sure that I was all set upon my arrival. The apartment is in very close proximity to the highways and there are some great restaurants and shopping boutiques within walking distance. I plan on staying again very soon.
I've been in New York several times before coming to Jane's apartment. I've never been so well hosted than here.
Jane's studio is very spacious, comfortable and quiet. It is very well decorated and anything bothered us during our stay. The bed is very comfortable and the shower is great.
The apartment is very close to Manhattan via subway (one change to 5th ave/Times Square) or Ferry to midtown, Brooklyn or downtown (a Must Go, even with cold weather). You will easily find restaurants, cafes, delis and stores in a walking distance. We would definitely stay here again in a new trip to NYC. We stayed for 8 nights and Sante welcome us with a lot of recommendations nearby and a very nice talk. We met him some times during our stay and also met Jane. Both were cool and available for any request. Sante even helped us with a cab to Manhattan in our last day.
If you are looking for privacy and practicality this is the right place.
This was my parents third time staying here and they loved it! We try to book it whenever they are in town. I live just a few blocks away so it is super convenient. Santi and Jane make it really easy for us. They are super accommodating hosts and the apartment is always clean and quiet. Thank you!
We stayed for 4 nights for our first trip to New York. Sante gave us a very friendly welcome and gave us useful information about New York and the area.
The apartment was spacious and warm with a comfy bed. With loads of cafes, restaurants and shops in walking distance. The area felt safe and it was very quick to get to Manhattan. It was also easy to get to JFK airport from there (around 1 hour with 2 changes).
We would definitely recommend this place to friends and family.
Only thing we would point out is, even if it didn't bother us, you could hear the dogs moving around in the morning. So if you are a light sleeper maybe this isn't the place for you.
We were welcomed in person, and our friendly hosts were always accessible during our stay. The space is quiet, clean, roomy, comfortable, and close to great little shops and restaurants in Brooklyn. Also convenient access to the subway and ferry. We loved our time here and hope to stay again!
During our 4 night stay Jane and Santo showed me and my wife the nicest hospitality. The welcoming was flawless and the response to our questions was immediate. The basement studio was clean, spacious and cozy. We slept well in the bed and was never disturbed by the dogs. I have only positive thing to say about our stay. We hope to return to Jane and Sante in Greenpoint soon.
We both really enjoyed our stay here. Jane and Sante are both lovely and really friendly. They were also extremely accommodating to our needs. The apartment itself is very spacious and equipped with everything you need. It's located on a pretty residential road and very close to the subway with good links into the city. It's also a 10 minute walk away from the ferry which makes a nice alternative. Would highly recommend this place to anyone to stay at.
Studio dans une très belle demeure et un quartier très mignon, bars, Resto, Metro à 3 minutes et vue sur Manhattan magnifique. Un seul petit défaut est que le studio est en sous-sol donc manque un peu de luminosité mais la décoration améliore l'environnement. Très bien pour qq jours sur Brooklyn !
I went to new york with my boyfriend and we stayed at Jane's and Sante's home for ten nights. Our experience was absolutely perfect, I can't recomend this place enough! The first thing we noticed was that the neighborhood was lovely, a place from a typical new york scene, full of trees, beautiful houses and lots of places to eat, to have coffee or even a late dinner. The subway is just around the corner, and it takes around 25 minutes to be in Manhattan. The studio is big, cozy, functional and even more beautiful than we could imagine by the photos. It's very well equiped, with everything you need to spend some days in the city. Not so full of daylight, but nobody goes to new york to spend the day at home, so it's just a minor detail. It was also super clean, and Sante was waiting to welcome us, even when our flight was delayed and we arrived 2 hours later than we expected. He is easy-going, kind and helpful, always there to give us some advice. Regarding the noise, we were a bit worried cause I'm a light sleeper and everybody say that the city is loud -we've heard a lot of stories of sleeping with earplugs-, but I have to say that the apt and the neighborhood are totally quiet. You can only hear birds in the morning and the building noise is not annoying at all. The bed was more confortable than ours, so I've slept better than at home! Thank you very much guys for a awesome stay!
Jane's studio is calm, lovely, quiet, clean, beautifully decorated, very well-located, and managed by one of the most wonderful people you could ever hope to meet. Given the fantastic neighborhood & the proximity to every area of NYC (especially via the excellent East River Ferry which is just a stone's throw away, not to mention buses, subways, the hopping Franklin Ave stretch of Greenpoint & the short walk to bustling Williamsburg), this studio is truly the ideal place for your New York adventure!
You won't meet a more lovely landlady. A lady who really likes people and has a genuine desire for you to enjoy your stay in her studio in Greenpoint. A funny, warm,caring person. We went to college together and I would trust her with my life.
