“Home away from home for Christmas in NY”
Reviewed 15 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

person found this review helpful

We rented this home for seven nights over Christmas and it was the perfect base to explore New York. Our group consisted of five adults (1 couple and 3 singles) and we required four separate beds. The house (built in 1901) is very spacious and character-filled with three large bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living area, a study (off the living area separated by sliding doors), kitchen/dining area and laundry over three levels. Using the queen blow-up bed placed in the study we were able to all have separate rooms which worked very well for us. On Christmas day we cooked a full Christmas dinner for 10 people in the very well equipped kitchen. Being there in mid-winter we found the heating was excellent, sometimes a little too warm for those upstairs but this was easily fixed by turning of the heating.
Location – the house is located in Bedford-Stuyvesant neighbourhood with the nearest subway station being Kingston-Throop, an easy 7-10 mins walk away. We found the neighbourhood to be safe, although it could be a little noisy at night with sirens etc – but that’s New York for you! There is a great grocery store/supermarket approx. 10 mins walk away that was well priced and had everything we needed. Anticipate approx. 15 – 20 mins on the subway to get to downtown and around 30 mins to midtown.
Dia (the fourth floor tenant) and Sylvia (the next door neighbour) were amazingly helpful, patiently answering all of our questions and put up with ten crazy kiwis singing and dancing on Christmas night!
Can highly recommend Daily Press on Franklin Ave for fantastic coffee and bagels (approx. 15min walk) and there is a great discount store opposite the Kingston-Throop subway stop for anything you may have forgotten!
I recommend this property particularly if you are looking for a more local New York experience away from the Manhattan crowds, for longer stays and if you are a return visitor to New York. For groups it is great value for money with the added advantage of being able to cook and do laundry. As you will spend quite a bit of time on the subway I recommend purchasing the seven day unlimited subway/bus pass (which cost $31) – it’s a bargain. Thanks Ruty (Dia and Sylvia) for a warm welcome and great stay.

“Awesome!!”
Reviewed 28 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

From the moment we set eyes on this property online till we completed our stay it was an exciting and awesome experience. Ruty's response was prompt and very accommodating when we needed to make changes. Information provided were accurate as per advertised. We came in a group of five adults two children and the place has ample room to accommodate all. Kitchen is well stock and we almost cook up a banquet. Linen and towels are crisp and fresh. Oh did I forget to mentioned, this place is awesomely clean!! The neighborhood is convenient with easy access to subway and utmost it has plenty great cafes that serves great coffee for anyone needing caffeine fix. Thanks Ruty!! Will sure recommend this place to friends and family.

“A comfortable stay”
Reviewed 18 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We were a family group of 6, "children" aged 14 -21, the apartment worked well for us and we loved the style of the home, and the space it afforded us. All the heating, water and other facilities worked well and were well maintained. We did limited cooking but the kitchen facilities were perfectly adequate.
The tenant on the top floor was so helpful and pleasant, no grumbles even though we arrived rather late due to a flight delay.
There are small shops nearby and a larger supermarket in walking distance. The area is residential.
A short walk to the train station but we found the journey into the city quite long. Longer than expected at 30 mins or so. Often requiring a train change on the way depending where we were going.
Overall an excellent rental. Would recommend.
