    Nous venons de passer 1 semaine d'exception dans ce bel appartement new-yorkais. Il est spacieux (3 chambres et une grande pice vivre), dcor avec soin, trs propre et trs bien quip (petit bmol, il manque une machine laver la vaisselle). Il est trs confortable, les lits sont juste parfaits !! Le quartier est calme et trs pratique (prsence de toutes les lignes de mtro), supermarchs et commerce au coin de la rue. Petits restaurants agrables prs du mtro Lafayette Av. Compter 20 minutes maxi pour rejoindre le centre de Manhattan. En rsum, trs belle surprise que cette location que nous recommandons vivement. 13 April 2017 - 12:37:00

    Leuk en fijn appartement in een levendige buurt. Veel winkeltjes, restaurantjes en cafs in de omgeving en een supermarkt om de hoek. De metro op 2 minuten loopafstand die je in een kwartier naar de hoogte punten in Manhattan brengt. Stephanie is erg behulpzaam en geeft graag tips over leuke activiteiten in de buurt. Het appartement is leuk ingericht en in de namiddag kan je nog even lekker van de zon genieten in de tuin. Alles wat je nodig hebt is aanwezig, wij waren vooral te spreken over de grote zachte handdoeken en de fijne douche. En fijne plek om na een dag in het drukke Manhattan even tot rust te komen. Wij hebben hier een super tijd gehad, mede dank zij Stephanie. Zij regelt alles soepel en komt afspraken na. 09 May 2017 - 10:25:00

    In ruhiger Wohnstrasse und trotzdem so zentral wie man es besser nicht haben knnte. Supermrkte, Restaurants, U-Bahn-Stationen...alles zu Fu innerhalb von max. 5 Minuten erreichbar. Nach Manhatten sind es nur 15-20 Minuten mit der U-Bahn! Das Apartment war sehr gerumig, sauber und voll ausgestattet. Wir wrden hier auf jeden Fall gerne wieder bernachten. 23 May 2017 - 07:49:00

    Comfortable three bedroom basement apartment in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, close to 3 subway stations, shopping centre, minimart, bagels. Stephanie was very helpful, especially when my daughter left her hard drive connected to the TV. We (family of 6) felt very safe there, took the subway to Manhattan within 20 minutes, and went the other way to beautiful Prospect Park too. So much to see - all so close. Great base for a New York holiday. 08 August 2017 - 13:23:00

    We have just returned home after a five night stay at Stephanie and Justin's Garden apartment. My husband and I were there with two of our grown children, their spouses and our one year old granddaughter. This spotless apartment worked perfectly. The location was terrific for those who had work to attend to in the city, and the rest of us found getting wherever we wanted was easy with so many stops close by. This neighborhood is great fun. The pictures posted here are winning, but the apartment is even nicer and is well supplied with all you could need for a relaxing vacation. If you're worried about living below the owners, don't worry. Lovely owners! Lovely rental! Lovely vacation! Thanks Stefanie! 11 June 2012 - 05:50:07

    Stephanie and Justin's apartment was just as the listing said. We had a great time in Brooklyn and Fort Greene is such a central location ... close to the subway, shopping centre and great restaurants and diners. The Smoke Joint and Academy Diner were fabulous with great food and value for money. Stephanie was extremely helpful and nothing was a problem. The apartment was perfect and very comfortable for our family of four and it was great to have private access to laundry facilities. Stephanie & Justin thought of everything when they prepared this apartment as a holiday rental. There is everything you could possibly want and need in the kitchen and bathroom ... and there's a crib and high chair if you have a bub. I highly recommend this apartment for anyone wanting to explore Brooklyn. 02 October 2012 - 21:40:03

    We are a family of four from Australia, with teenage children. This apartment was perfect for us, and I highly recommend it. It is clean and well maintained. The living area is a good size, the beds are all comfortable, and it was very quiet at night. It is also only one block from the subway, and you can travel anywhere without needing to change trains. The surrounding area is great, with lots of shops and restaurants. In fact we discovered that Brooklyn is a great place to look around, with hardly any tourists. Stephanie and Justin are very helpful and made us feel at home. 18 October 2012 - 09:30:12

    My family was in need of a place to stay while visiting me for Thanksgiving and I was very happy to find this one. The apt is comfortable, quiet, and very large. We had 4 people stay with more than enough room. The owner was very professional and returned my calls and email right away leading up to the stay. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in Brooklyn. 04 December 2012 - 15:47:46

    This is a great place to stay in Brooklyn/NYC. The neighborhood is eclectic and fun, with many good restaurants and bars. We felt safe walking around at all times, even late at night. There are several subway lines within a few blocks providing extremely easy access to all of NYC. The transit system was easy to figure out, and, again, we felt safe using it, even late at night. The apartment was comfortable for our party of four. The kitchen is well equipped. The beds are very comfortable. The living room could be improved by adding additional seating, but we did not find this to be troubling. We will stay here again for sure. 10 May 2014 - 14:28:52

    My husband, two tween daughters and I usually drive from Western PA and stay at a hotel when we visit family in Coney Island. This was our first time taking Amtrak and our backpacks to a rental property. I'm so glad we found Stephanie's apartment, and we had a wonderful time staying there. She and her husband were very helpful and accommodating throughout our stay. Beds were comfy, cute patio out back, fantastic closet space. Everything was clean, well cared-for and had the best-stocked of all the vrbo properties we've rented: paper/cleaning products, even coffee. We literally could not have wanted for anything! It was such a pleasure to cook, wash clothes and relax in the evenings. We were used to being crammed in a little hotel room, and it felt so luxurious to have so much space on a NYC trip. Great safe neighborhood; lots of shopping nearby while still feeling like we were in a quiet neighborhood. Easy to get to Manhattan and Coney Island. We will definitely be back and will recommend the property to friends who visit NYC regularly. 19 October 2014 - 03:11:26

    Eight days here with one son's family for the other son's wedding. Clean apartment with great easy to work with owner. Grandkids had space to play and be kids. Close to everything like Park Slope, Parks, subway transportation to everywhere especially NYC from Atlantic Terminal, grocery store, very good local restaurants like DSK, Emily's and Speedy Romeo are worth a look. Kitchen is small but well provisioned with utensils and small appliances. We will stay here again when we visit our son. 09 November 2017 - 13:34:00

    Stephanie and Justin were the perfect hosts. The appartement was also perfect for us, a family with two teenagers. It had everything we needed for a one week stay. Very well located near subway, with direct trains to Manhatten, and lots of local shops within walking distance.. We will be back! 22 July 2017 - 16:34:00
  15. Cathy T.
    Great location and property for our visit to NYC. The subway was very close as well as some great restaurants and access to groceries. Our family loved having our own spaces to relax in the evenings. The owners were super friendly and helpful - as well as available if we needed them. 02 October 2016 - 16:01:03

    What a great apartment. Beautifully decorated, comfortable and close to great restaurants, grocery, subway, etc. Will definitely stay here again. Loved it. 27 November 2017 - 12:29:00

    We are former New Yorkers as in smack in the city so bear that in mind; this apartment is garden level classic Brooklyn. Which to us means, none of the never ending Manhattan sirens and garbage trucks, car alarms, etc. There is some city noise, faint subway sounds which we actually found charming. For NYC this is a large apartment; we have friends with 2 kids in about 1/3 the space; but again, I'm a New Yorker; I get that. Clean, efficient; ready for us and the owner is upstairs, extremely helpful. 18 December 2017 - 19:39:00

    We spent ten days here in January and found the layout, the furnishings and particularly the location ideal. We knew the Ft. Greene area fairly well and had stayed in other apartments in the vicinity, but none combined the value, comfort and location advantages of this one. Of the apartment, we appreciated the small, but very well equipped kitchen. We found it more than adequate for preparing simple breakfasts to full dinners. The beds were quite comfortable. The bedroom layouts are well suited for a family or sharing with others who are close friends. Apart from the physical characteristics of the apartment, the owners were very welcoming and attentive to us. They were quick to respond to the requests we made or questions we asked. In sum, the apartment is well situated and has everything the independent traveler would want in this part of Brooklyn. 22 January 2018 - 21:18:00

    Description a little generous in stating that sleeping is for 6 adults. In reality, comfortably slept 4. Should also note it is a basement apartment. Not enough seating for 6 people. Furniture OK in terms of comfort, but a couple of people had to sit on the floor. Some nasty smells from sewer meant that couldn't leave windows open and had to leave air conditioning on. Good location (10 minutes subway to Manhattan) and an OK apartment if you intend to spend all your waking hours away doing tourist activities. 30 September 2012 - 01:22:25
