    Loved this place! It was very clean and comfortable. Owner is helpful and friendly. It has all the amenities you will need and it's close to the subway and a very nice grocery store. We felt safe in the quiet neighborhood. We would love to stay here again soon and have already recommended it to friends. 15 August 2012 - 13:02:47

    We enjoyed our stay very much. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating - they even stocked in fruit and food to make breakfast the next morning. The apartment was spotless and well equipped. The street was amazingly quiet and we felt quite safe. The subway and a well stocked supermarket were a short walk away. We were really impressed with the variety and quality of restaurants within a few subway stops of the apartment. If we could make one suggestion it would be to provide some way (door or curtain) of separating the bedroom from the living room where the sofa bed is located so that the respective parties could each have a little more privacy. That being said, we would definitely rent this property again when we return to NYC. 22 May 2012 - 02:18:05

    We have stayed at Ellen and Al's place twice now and have been extremely pleased both times! The apartment is on a remarkable quiet street, is secure and comfortable, and Ellen and Al could not be nicer. (On this trip we drove into the city and Ellen used her car to save an open parking spot for us right in front of the building!) The subway station is a short walk away and there is a really nice grocery store on that same corner. We visit New York City often and I will always check to see if this place is available on any future trips. Never a disappointment! 14 June 2017 - 19:00:00

    This is a great deal and very comfortable rental. Quiet neighborhood. Walk around the corner and in a couple of blocks you are eating fresh bagels, stocking up on fresh fruit/vegetables at the green grocers or shopping. Everything in Brooklyn is a 10 minute cab ride from this apartment (zoo, botanical gardens, parks,etc) and a quick walk to the subway takes you anywhere. Safe neighborhood to walk around. Very clean rental, with all the amenities and spacious. Given how expensive (and tiny) NYC hotels are, this is a fabulous bargin. MC, Denver, CO 18 August 2009 - 14:16:42
  6. My husband and I rented this place because it was 2 subway stops from our son's home. We loved this apartment. The owners were wonderful to work with. They accommodated us from giving us a subway map to stocking food items they thought we might need. The apartment is really very nice, wood floors, comfy bed and it's very roomy. It even has a washer and dryer. The neighborhood is charming; you can see Muslim women in burkas as well as little boys playing outside wearing yarmulkes. We were thrilled when we watched all the kids coming out from school -moms wearing scarfs or beautiful saris picking up their children. There is a grocery store at the end of the block which stocks just about everything you'd need. A little farther down are stores and kiosks selling various items and a vendor who makes fresh falafals and the best rice I've tasted in a long time. We will definitely be back. The apartment allowed us privacy and time away from our kids, but the convenience of being so close. The subway is 1 block away. The owners communicated very well with us and we kept them informed of our itinerary. They were a pleasure to work with. 02 October 2009 - 03:43:23

    Das Apartment in Brooklyn ist absolut zu empfehlen. Die Gastgeber Ellen und Al wohnen unten im Haus, sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Die Wohnung ist gro und sehr liebevoll und vollstndig ausgestattet. Wir haben uns in der Wohngegend jederzeit sicher gefhlt. (Auch als wir abends von der subway kamen) Man geht 5 min zur U-Bahn und ist dann in ca. 25 min in Manhattan. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefhlt und wrden ein Apartment in New York jederzeit einem Hotel vorziehen. 26 October 2009 - 16:25:04

    Three of us stayed with Ellen for a week, and we were very pleased. The location is just right, 3 minute walk to F/G subway lines, and the grocery store. The neighborhood is very quiet. The F train gets you to lower Manhattan in 25 minutes, add 10 minutes to get to Times Square. Street parking near the house was always available, which was a big plus. 09 May 2010 - 19:28:42

    This spacious rental is in a quiet little neighborhood close to everything. The subway and numerous grocery stores are easily within walking distance. The apartment itself is cheery and exceptionally clean, and the owners have provided the perfect details to make any traveler feel at home (right down to maps and local take out menus!) I was traveling with three other adults, and there was plenty of room for us, our luggage, clothes, etc. The owners are fantastic, accommodating and extremely helpful. I will definitely be back! 14 July 2010 - 02:32:14

    I was a member of the Sara R party (see her reviews) that stay in July. This apartment was very clean, comfortable and a short subway ride to NYC. Everything was exactly as described in their ad. What is not in their ad is that Ellen and Al are the nicest people you could ever meet and they are honest and fair. We had a family member to pass away and had to leave immediately; they were very understanding and refunded the unused portion of our stay. Ellen and Al were under not obligation to refund our money but were gracious to do so. We are very thankful that we rented from them and hope to return soon. 27 July 2010 - 15:23:38

    This is an amazing apartment in Brooklyn. We rented it for 5 days and felt like locals in Brooklyn. A very nice experenice for germans. Ellen and Al are very kind people. They prepared the apartment with a little bit of food for an easy start. Well be back!! Anke & Michael 26 October 2010 - 13:14:59

    Wir, zwei Erwachsene, zwei Teenager, waren mit diesem Apartment hchst zufrieden und knnen es nur weiter empfehlen. Die Beschreibung im Onlineinserat wie auch die Anmerkungen der Bewerter sind alle zutreffend. Wir fhlten uns ein bisschen wie Einheimische; Kaffee, Tee, Zucker, Milch, Pancakes, Grundnahrungsmittel waren vorhanden, allgemein war alles sehr sauber, gepflegt und "mit Herz" eingerichtet.(Allerdings zu beachten: Das "Einzelbett" ist ein zum Bett umbaubarer Sessel und leidlich komfortabel, das Schlafsofa relativ schmal und wirklich bequem wohl eher fr EINEN Erwachsenen, vielleicht fr zwei kleinere Kinder. Als Alternative war zudem eine dreiteilige Matratze vorhanden. Handtcher, Bettwsche usw. waren reichlich da.) Infos, Plne, Die Vermieter bereiteten uns einen sehr freundlichen Empfang, so dass wir uns sofort wie zu Hause fhlten. Sie versorgten uns mit Informationen und Tipps, ohne jemals aufdringlich zu sein. Ganz unkompliziert lsten sie auch unser Gepckproblem: Unser Abflug war erst um 23:30 Uhr, es gibt jedoch in New York aus Sicherheitsgrnden keinerlei Gepckaufbewahrungsmglichkeiten. Trotz der Reinigungsarbeiten konnten wir unser Gepck bis abends in der Wohnung stehen lassen und auf diese Weise den letzten Tag noch nutzen. Fazit: Unser nchster NY-Aufenthalt wird uns sicher wieder in Ellen und Alberts Ferienwohnung fhren. Uneingeschrnkt empfehlenswert. 12 May 2011 - 14:57:17
  13. the 5 from Holland
    As a family of 5 with 3 boys between 13 and 18 we rented the apartment for 5 nights. E-mail contact was already warm and friendly and so was the welcome at Saturday night by Ellen and Al. We got all kind of information. The apartment was clean and nice and sunny as promised on the website. 3 beds were very good. Number 4 and 5 could be better. But tired after a long day of impressions in NY, we have no complaints .... Location is ok: only a few minutes from the subway station on Church street. Good connection with Manhanttan. Street is friendly and we felt safe. Highly recommended! 15 May 2011 - 17:35:54

    This appartment is very spacious, clean and quiet. It's very close to the subway (5mn walk) and grocery stores. We highly recommand it. 14 May 2011 - 19:12:09

    We found this apartment to be just right for our recent stay in Brooklyn. The grocery store and subway stop was close and convenient to get into Manhattan. The apartment is big, clean, the kitchen is well stocked and the washer/dryer came in very handy. Ellen and Albert were kind and helpful. A short walk to restaurants and the Steeplechase Coffee Shop. 12 November 2017 - 21:24:00

    We spent a week in Brooklyn visiting our son and family. Ellen and Albert's Brooklyn apartment was clean and bright and offered a convenient location to subway and grocery store. We highly recommend this quiet neighborhood retreat when visiting NYC. 29 December 2017 - 17:01:00
  18. Super clean. Convenient to subway. Interesting neighborhood with lots of new restaurants. Friendly and helpful hosts. Quiet and safe location. After many stays, hosts seem like old friends. Look forward to our next visit to Brooklyn. 12 June 2017 - 13:46:00
  19. Such a nice apartment! Very clean and updated! And super comfy. The big windows overlooking the front of the house are perfect. Close to market and subway station they are at the end of the block. Ellen really goes out of her way to make the stay very welcoming and warm. She recommended Hamiltons restaurant and we loved it! If you get a chance stop by delicious breakfast! 01 January 2018 - 21:37:00

    Thank you Ellen and Albert for allowing our family to stay at your wonderful apartment. Anyone looking to make a trip to New York should consider this apartment. It is clean, comfortable, well stocked and has great hosts. It is close to the subway station and the hosts can provide expert travel and sightseeing directions. We hope to travel to NY again in the next few years and will definitely plan to stay at this apartment again. 06 August 2017 - 00:32:00
