About listing

On the third floor of a hundred years old brownstone, la Maison des Sirenes is perfect for anybody appreciating style and comfort. Affordable but not 'cheap', La Maison des Sirenes is well dressed!!! The apartment was decorated with taste and I meticulously picked every single of furnitures myself. This is the first apartment I ever rented as a vacation rental(August 2007). It is located on one of the most coveted block of Bedstuy(tree lined). It features a master bedroom,an antique bathroom, fully equipped Tuscan style kitchen,dining room,living room and an amazing bamboo lined deck with table,umbrella and wrought iron daybed. Perfect for barbecue in summer,sun bathing brunches on weekends or simply relaxing. Most importantly the apartment is a few statins away from Manhattan. Check my other property La maison des Sirenes 2 (384590) Bedstuy used to be known for its motto 'do or die' . Not anymore!!!! Now it is best known for its incredibly beautiful Brownstone. It was fearures recentlt in the Time Out magazine as ' one of the best neighbourhood ' of NYC.The strong community and abundant beautiful brownstone townhouses contribute to its growth and charm. New cafes,restaurants,bakeries ,boutique ,galleries nd wine bars are sprouting everywhere receiving much attention by Zagat, time out,NY magazines and blogs. A diverse mix of students,hipsters,artists,crative professionals,architects and attorneys of all races continue to move to the neighbourhood. The area is serviced well by the A abd C train with commute times 15 mn to lowervManhattan and 30 mn to midtown.(times square). Bedstuy was home to famous artists such as Notorious BIG,Lil Kim,Mos Def,Chris rock,,poet June Jordan and activist Hattie Carthan. Bedstuy streets are often represented in media : Spike lee movies, MIA music video..... There is a strong sense of pride being part of Bedstuy and being its pioneers.

    My partner and I stayed in Nathalie's lovely place for two nights in September. The description of the apartment was completely accurate and so were all the great reviews we read. The apartment is furnished with great care with many charming details that add to the already homey character of the place. The kitchen and the bathroom were fully equipped and the apartment was very clean and well maintained. Nathalie was very helpful and responsive, welcomed us when we first arrived and suggested the best ways to get around the neighborhood and to Manhattan. She was discrete, but ready to give us time if we needed something. On the last day, we decided to stay in NY during the day and leave late in the evening, and Nathalie kindly offered to keep our luggage at her place until late at night and even let us keep one of the keys to her house. Metro is several blocks away and well connected to Manhattan, though the trip can take up to 30 minutes late in the evenings. Most of the time, however, we were in downtown in less than that. I would definitely stay in Las Maison des Sirenes again and would recommend it to any of my friends. Next time, we hope to spend more days in NY and Nathalie's place is perfect since it provides everything you would need at your own home! Definitely recommend it! 19 September 2010 - 08:01:18

    Nous sommes une famille de trois et avons habit 2 semaines l'appartement de Nathalie cet t. Nous avons eu un bon contact avec Nathalie (qui tant donn qu'elle parle franais nous a bien conseill) et les habitants du quartier qui semblent d'embl trs sympathiques et accueillants. L'appartement quant a lui est parfaitement situ pour partir la dcouverte de NY(ligne directe pour Manhattan 5mn) et dcor avec gout, tant donnes les conditions atmosphriques au cours de notre sjour nous avons pu profiter du calme et des cigales de la terrasse. 18 September 2010 - 18:09:11

    We were a family of three from ages 18-67 who were on a 4 night layover in the Big Apple. It was our first time in the city so we had a lot of questions, all of whom were answered by our lovely hostess Nathalie. She was very patient and helpful throughout our stay at her impeccable apartment. The Brooklyn hideout is located in a safe and friendly neighborhood, with easy access to both taxi's, deli's and the subway.The apartment has everything you would need for both a week, a month or just a couple of days. Furthermore it was decorated nicely and had a high level of maintenance. No matter which age-group you belong to or what interests you have, you'll be sure to have a great time in Nathalie's Brooklyn dreamhome. 19 September 2010 - 03:46:03

    We had an exceptional experience at La Maison Des Sirenes. The proximity to a subway station, the friendly neighbors and the comfortable bed were just a few of the things that made our stay great. The home is beautifully decorated and very spacious. I can't wait to come back and stay in New York like a local again! Highly recommended. 02 November 2010 - 14:56:16

    Nous sommes arrives trois filles dans ce charmant petit appartement de Brooklyn. Nous avons t accueillies comme des reines par Nathalie qui nous a donn de prcieux conseils tout au long de notre sjour. Ces vacances sont passe beaucoup trop vite et nous avons t extrmement triste de quitter cette ville extraordinaire qu'est New York. Merci encore Nathalie pour son accueil et sa gentillesse.

    La Maison des Sirenes,trs bien dcore est un lieu magique idalement plac pour visiter la ville, (5 minutes du mtro, avec la Mtro Card, pour 29$ accs illimits pendant 7 jours), pour l'aroport (c'est la ligne qui mne l'AIR TRAIN qui dessere tous les terminaux de JFK). Ce quartier de Brooklin trs tranquille s'anime lorsque on s'approche de Kingston Avenue et tous ces commerces. Nathalie la propritaire, une extrme gentillesse. Je vous recommande cette adresse, et je peux vous assurer que vous ne serez pas du !!! New York, une population multi-culturelle, ouverte et toujours prte vous aider, une ville aux milles quartiers o il fait bon marcher. En conclusion, reservez vos billets d'avion, reservez la Maison des Sirenes et commencez faire vos bagages !!!!!! Cathy, Clia et Thierry SAINT JEAN - HAUTE GARONNE - FRANCE 09 March 2011 - 11:10:01

    Super cute apartment in interesting neighborhood - definitely not the usual tourist trap location! Easy to get to Williamsburg, Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan from here. Nathalie has made sure there's plenty of books with tips of where to go and what to do in both Brooklyn and Manhattan. 21 July 2011 - 14:20:30

    Nous avons beaucoup apprci cet appartement trs beau, trs propre et dcor avec beaucoup de got et d'originalit. Nathalie la propritaire, habite au rez de chausse et a t disponible pour nous aider gentiment et nous conseiller. L'ouverture de la porte d'entre au rez de chausse comme celle de l'appartement est un peu complique et il faut une certaine habitude pour russir ouvrir ou fermer du premier coup mais les explications crites donnes par Nathalie, sont trs dtailles et permettent d'y arriver quand on essaie pour la premire fois. Il y a une terrasse sur laquelle on peut manger, qui est trs agrable. Le quartier est constitu de jolies maisons avec perrons et les rues sont bordes d'arbres. La rue Fulton proximit regorgent de commerces et est trs anime. Le mtro pour acceder Manahattan est proche. La scurit du quartier nous a sembl correcte, mme si nos filles (15 et 17 ans) ne se sentaient pas trs l'aise quand elles sont rentres la nuit une fois. 19 September 2011 - 16:43:27

    Nathalie was an excellent host, she made our stay very easy. The apartment is perfect for 2 couples or a family. Located in the heart of Brooklyn there're lots of things to do around and it's very well linked to Manhattan and other neibourghoods. 15 September 2017 - 07:37:00

    My daughter and I had an awesome weekend stay. We loved the proximity to the subway and the charm of the neighborhood stores and restaurants. Thanks for making this easy and comfortable. 17 October 2017 - 18:23:00

    Really enjoyed the place. Lots of character and plenty of sleeping options. Mostly what we were expecting. Stayed here with a few friends. Must note that it isn't technically a 1 bedroom place. There is a queen bed that is separate from the others but there are no walls or doors to make it a bedroom. One other thing that some of us were slightly disappointed in was the shower.... you can't actually stand up in the shower as you usually would. It is a hand held sprayer in a claw foot tub. I am 5'6" and I had to kneel down in the shower to wash hair. The price was great and the location is very convenient for exploring New York City. 13 October 2017 - 23:19:00

    Less than five-minute walk to the subway, you can access all the city, however the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood has a great vibe. The second story apartment had many of the original details of the brownstone and a great view of the neighborhood street. Requested car service to the airport was easily taken care of with a simply text to the owner. Great experience. 13 August 2017 - 00:11:00

    My family of 5 visited La Maison des Sirenes for a quick weekend trip after Cooperstown Baseball tournament. Our first full day the block was having a old school block party with cool music, food, and bounce house. All the neighbors were out having fun. We talked with a few neighbors but chose to pass on the block party and go site seeing. The Subway was only a few blocks away so we used it for our main form of transportation. The neighborhood was very safe during the day and at night. My Infiniti QX60 sat around the corner for 3 days never got one scratch. The place was very eclectic as you can see in pictures. My only complaint is no fault of our host, but the humidity was very high that weekend (90-95F) therefore the nights were a little warm even though the AC unit was working like it should. Overall I highly recommend Nathalie place so book it and experience New York like a New Yorker. PS If you like Caribbean food like Jerk chicken, Curry Goat or Ox-tail go visit Angela's just up the street. 30 July 2017 - 03:18:00

    The Good: The apartment is bright and airy and well equipped with everything you need, including a balcony. It is close to the subway. There are some very good restaurants and bars near by. The owner was easy to contact and responded quickly to our enquiries. The not so good: Although it is advertised as a one bedroom, the bedroom is not separate from the kitchen or the living room (where the other beds are). In fact the whole apartment is one big room (except for the bathroom). This may not be a problem but if you are traveling with teenagers or as two couples you might want some private space, especially if you expect that you are getting your own bedroom. Although the area is generally safe during the day, I would absolutely not walk back from the subway late at night as suggested by one reviewer - this is not Williamsburg or Carroll Gardens. Also for an $85 cleaning fee the owner of the property is being short changed by the cleaner as the property was, in our case at least, not cleaned to a standard that would satisfy some guests. 12 June 2017 - 12:21:00

    La Maison des Sirnes was a great place to stay for our five-night stay in New York. We are a group of four adults (mother and three grown children). I wasn't quite sure how the sleeping arrangement was going to work, but it was perfect for us. Nathalie already had everything set up when we arrived. She had three comfortable twin beds made up in the living area, and I had the queen bed. They were all comfortable with very nice bedding. The bathroom has an original claw foot tub. It doesn't have a proper shower, but does have a spray attachment, so it can be used to shower off. I personally loved the bathtub . The apartment was clean and everything met my expectations. I want to stress how much we LOVE the neighborhood. The street where we stayed was charming and tree-lined with beautiful brownstones. The subway is a very nice walk (not far at all) and easy to find. It is about 20 minutes to Manhattan, but we didn't mind the commute at all and went into the city every day. We love the ambience of the Bed-Stuy area of Brooklyn. We had lovely dinners at the two restaurants recommended by Nathalie. We also found a nice Mexican restaurant, and there are delis on several corners. We loved exploring the area. I would highly recommend staying La Maison Des Sirenes if you are looking for a very charming and comfortable apartment during your stay in New York. 08 December 2017 - 17:33:00
