The place wasn't like in the pictures at all. We didn't enjoey being there, although we had basic things: water, blankets, heating we didn't like how the place look like. The kitchen was dirty and we found find the washig machine, there was a closet in the kitchen full of garbage. In the room things were clean but was cold and there was a bed under other we can't use. The door in the room was damaged, the sofa bed was too old and wasn't Confortable. The blackout was damaged too and we never met the host. The day we arrived a guy received us and show us the things but during the whole week nobody was there or contact us to check how the things were. The neiborhood wasn't to bad but it was far from everything. The Tv didn't work well.
Hi !!! I stayed there for 3 weeks with my little 1,5 year old son in May 2014...and what should is say? It was PERFECT. The location was great, a huge playground, 24h washcenter, a great deli, all just around the corner ! the house is located in the heart of flatbush...just a little walk of ten minutes to the subway with ELEVATOR. i loved it there because it was so nice an calm and cool...not the manhattan stress :-) buuut it tooks a longer time if u want to go to manhattan..but the subway line brings you straight there...also to fulton street, where you can shop sneeeakers :-)
when i flew back...i shed tears in the cab...i was incredibly sad leaving flatbush.
Steve and Heather were so nice and helpful!! WORDS CANT DESCRIBE! Sorry for giving my feedback this late, really want to say THANK YOU for your SUPPORT ( thx thx thx a million times :-)... Hope i soon have enough money to come back!
We were in the ground floor of the apartment: the greatest. Sure photos are dated and printing is not the same when you arrive, everything would need a good cooling and storage and more. Steve was very present, extremely kind and did everything just to make things easier and make our stay more enjoyable. The terrace is nice and Steve also has full project to landscape the garden. The area is residential, small houses more or less maintained but still quiet. A Happy half hour from Manhattan. Good place to take a first look at NYC without breaking the bank
Nous étions dans l'appartement du rdc : le plus grand. C'est sûr les photos datent un peu et l'impression n'est pas la même quand on arrive, tout aurait besoin d'un bon rafraîchissement et de rangement en plus. Steve était tres présent, d'une gentillesse extrême et a tout fait tout pour nous faciliter les choses et nous rendre le séjour plus agréable. La terrasse est bien agréable et Steve a aussi plein de projet pour aménager le jardin. Le quartier est résidentiel, des petites maisons plus ou moins entretenues mais tranquille. A une Bonne demi heure de Manhattan. Bonne adresse pour prendre un premier aperçu de NYC sans se ruiner
Have been for the second time in NYC and is staying for the second time in a rundown building. Possibly all (cheaper) rooms are so run down. It makes a sad to see how the owners can rot the building in NYC.
Compared to the outer appearance of the apartment was relatively clean. The technical equipment (TV, fridge, even Wii Playstation) was compared to the princely state of the building. However, it was not easy to bring the TV and WIFI and running. WIFI did not work upon arrival, at night it suddenly works by itself. The next night the same thing.
If someone has taken a shower in the upper apartment, the water has dripped through the ceiling on the TV.
On the last evening and departure there was no hot water for showers. Only in the kitchen.
Localization is quite inconvenient. Path to Subway 300m. However, the bus stop is right outside the door. Evening and especially at night not all trains to the terminus.
But the most unpleasant was the Wimdu system. This accommodation works with digital locks. There's no one on site. Only one week after the departure I found the code for the digital locks in Wimdu account where I do not normally nachschaue. This message was sent also only about 1 week before arrival (where I still do not know exactly). One week before arrival in NYC but we were a long time in the US and had very limited access to the Internet. In the evening at 20 Accordingly we stood: 00h in front of a closed building and feared already, having to look into the need for another hotel. Fortunately, we were able to reach the owner by phone.
Assessment: Book Only when nothing else is real in the lower price range. For such an accommodation the price still seems too high. But that's NYC.
Zum zweiten Mal in NYC gewesen und zum zweiten Mal in einem heruntergekommenen Gebäude logiert. Evtl sind alle (günstigeren) Unterkünfte so heruntergekommen. Es macht einen traurig zu sehen, wie die Eigentümer in NYC die Gebäude verrotten lassen.
Verglichen mit dem äusseren Erscheinungsbild war das Appartement noch relativ sauber. Die techn Ausstattung (TV, Kühlschrank, sogar Wii-Playstation) war im Vergleich zum Zustand des Gebäude fürstlich. Allerdings war es nicht ganz einfach den TV und WIFI zum Laufen zu bringen. WIFI hatte bei der Ankunft nicht funktioniert, in der Nacht hat es dann plötzlich von allein funktioniert. Am nächsten Abend dasselbe.
Wenn jemand im oberen Appartement geduscht hat, ist das Wasser durch die Decke auf den TV getröpfelt.
Am letzten Abend und Abreisetag gab es kein warmes Wasser zum Duschen. Nur in der Küche.
Die Lage der Unterkunft ist ziemlich ungünstig. Laufweg zur Subway etwa 300m. Allerdings ist die Bushalte direkt vor der Tür. Abends und vor allem nachts fahren nicht mehr alle Züge zur Endstation.
Das Unangenehmste war aber das Wimdu-System. Diese Unterkunft funktioniert mit digitalen Schlössern. Es ist NIEMAND vor Ort. Erst eine Woche NACH der Abreise habe ich den Code für die digitalen Schlösser im Wimdu-Account gefunden, wo ich normalerweise nicht nachschaue. Diese Nachricht wurde auch erst ca. 1 Woche vor Ankunft versendet (wohin weiss ich immer noch nicht genau). Eine Woche vor Ankunft in NYC waren wir aber schon lange in den USA und hatten nur sehr beschränkten Zugang zum Internet. Dementsprechend standen wir abends um 20:00h vor einem verschlossenen Gebäude und befürchteten bereits, in der Not ein anderes Hotel suchen zu müssen. Glücklicherweise konnten wir die Eigentümer telefonisch erreichen.
Beurteilung: Nur buchen, wenn man echt nichts anderes in der unteren Preisklasse findet. Für so eine Unterkunft scheint der Preis dennoch viel zu hoch. Aber das ist wohl NYC.
Steve and Heather's place is a great alternative to the very expensive accommodation on Manhattan Island. Steve, who we met on the night we checked in, was a helpful and gracious host, but the fully automated door codes mean that you can come and go as you please and also feel self-sufficient. The place is very clean and well appointed with fridge, shower/toilet and several options providing beds for between 2 and 5 people. The neighbourhood felt reasonably safe to walk through, even at night, and I liked being in an actual neighbourhood, dwelling in an apartment, just as I might do if I actually lived in Brooklyn. There is free wifi, an amenity which becomes more and more important to me these days as I travel, and an outsized television which we barely tapped the potential of in just watching for the weather. The location seems a bit far from the metro when you first walk it, and being the last stop Brooklyn direction from downtown Manhattan, you have to be prepared for a commute each morning if the sights you want to see are on Manhattan island, but given the pluses of price and of staying in an actual neighbourhood, the commute and the walk are negligible factors. The area around the metro station on Flatbush has a McDonalds which we used for morning coffee (don't expect to be served in a hurry though), and an unpretentious Italian pizzeria (Uncle Vic's) which we found served excellent pizza, pasta and portable calzones. The majority of restaurants in the area seem to be West Indian, but if not a fan of jerk chicken and salt cod, there are also some Chinese places. The multitude of fruit stands were also handy for buying oranges and juice that we could have in for the morning. If visiting New York again, especially for a longer stay, like a week, I would definitely try to stay in this Brooklyn apartment.
Een perfecte locatie. Lekker rustig achter met een veranda om te ontbijten en dan naar de metro te lopen. Ongeveer 45 minuten van het centrum. Vriendelijke en aardige eigenaren. Je kan echt je eigen gang gaan. Brooklyn is heerlijk.
Perfect location. Easy going and with a neat backyard where you can eat outside (in the summer ;-). Near subway. Only 40 minutes of the heart of Manhattan. Relaxed surroundings. We liked the contrast with the hustle and bustle of a big city and this place. For us perfect
our stay in this apartment was a réussite.Confortable, well equipped kitchen, lovely terrace to eat (an additional table would be welcome as there are three appartemants therefore the world sit.) 45 minutes by subway from central park, the report quality / price is excellent. Brooklyn very nice neighborhood (many carraibéen so french speaking ...) and all conveniences and shops nearby. possiblility of doing laundry on request, also including the air conditioning on request (surcharge).

Quartier de brooklyn très sympa ( beaucoup de carraibéen , donc parlant français ...) et toutes comodités et commerces à proximité. possiblilité de faire les lessives sur demandes , y compris aussi sur demande la clim (payante) .
The booking was really easy, and the reply from Steve the landlord was quick.
The Check-in is fully automated, and so easy and safe. The house is fully equipped, and with a great terrace.
The subway is nearby, with lines direct to Union Square, Times Square/Broadway and Central Park, and their are shopping opportunites nearby to.
We had a great stay at the house, and we were allow to borrow an extra appartment. Steve was so helpful
