The appartment of David and Jaqui is absolutely fantastic and "the place to be" for families who want to have a cosy "home" in New York. The owners are very friendly and give a lot of goog advice about visithing New York. The house was more than comfortable, clean and well furnished. We will sure return!

My wife and I along with our two very young children had a blast staying in the heart of Brooklyn... Neighborhood was historic and lively... the community was surprisingly friendly and rich in true native Brooklyn culture... Diverse with some great restaurants, bakeries, deli's just around the corner. make sure u start off with Dalias fresh baked goodies in the morning... muffins to die for! ... David's Brisket for lunch was (no lie) the best Pastrami or corned beef sandwich we have ever eatn! Great Jamaican spot at Fulton above A and C train platform. Aside from the great location in our opinion, was the magnificent historic Brownstone we had the privilege of staying in- just like i remember growing up in as a kid. David and his wife were amazing! ...helpful in every way needed. Our living space was spacious and well decorated... clean and inviting. As a builder i was mesmerized by the charm of all the hundred plus year old trim work and details of this building inside and out! Work of Art! Anyways, thanks to David and his sweet wife for opening up their home for us to enjoy! We will be back! BROOKLYN STAND UP!!
Couldnt say enough about the property, the owners, the area, ect. Everything was fantastic!! WE WILL BE BACK!! Thank u for opening up your beautiful home for us to experience. Thank you Bed-Stuy for being our new favorite spot in Brooklyn! oh, and dont forget to try Dahlia's homemade muffins around the corner! ...and for lunch best Pastrami sandwich we have ever eatn was at David's Brisket a few blocks away! Great Trip!! Mini Vinny and Baby Marco send squeezes ur way! Thanks again!!
Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 tweens) had a fabulous stay in Brooklyn. The best part are David and Jacqui - who are great hosts. They've decorated the apartment in such a fun way - and paid attention to the details (like marking where you are on the subway shower curtain!!!) This is a typical New York Brownstone, which means it is beautiful. If you want to really feel like a New Yorker for a while, this is the place to be... a friendly neighborhood with lots of parents walking their kids to school or daycare in the morning, and a bit quieter but still great walking at night. Markets and Drug Store a block or two away - subway station to take you into Manhatten 2 blocks away (remember to take the express - not the local!). We couldn't have been happier, although we wished we'd had more time to be able to just hang out on the stoop. David and Jacqui have great suggestions - listen to them if they recommend a resturant or museum. Ms. Dahlia's Cafe around the corner is a MUST to start your day. Good coffee and small breakfast foods. (also amazing cucumber lemonade - really - you should try it!). We would absolutely recommend staying here to family and friends - and hopefully we will be able to make a trip back.
I can't begin to describe what a wonderful stay myself, my husband and my toddler had here. We recently moved to New York and needed somewhere temporary to stay until we found longer-term accommodation, and we ended up staying with David and Jacqui for nearly 2 months. We couldn't have asked for a friendlier, more comfortable home from home. The flat itself is gorgeous - it has a peaceful airy feel to it, lots of beautiful period touches and some brilliant pieces of art that give it real character. It's really well located, very near the subway station - we had no problems getting out and about daily to explore Brooklyn and Manhattan. It's also about 5 mins away from a large supermarket for those doing home cooking.
Bed Stuy itself is very safe and the people really friendly (very sweet with my son - I had to ask them for help daily to take my pram up and down the subway stairs! For those with children that don't want to keep asking for favours then there's a lift in the next subway station along). It's a great opportunity to get a feel for daily life, away from the tourist trail.
Last but not least is just what wonderful people David and Jacqui themselves are, which is not an insignificant point because often the fondest memories you have of places are the people you come across there. Thanks guys!
My wife, son and I had a wonderful stay at this most excellent apartment.
The space was huge with 14ft ceilings and just a very comfortable, relaxing retreat. I was amazed at how quiet it was in the apartment at night. Most welcome after your surely busy day in the city. More importantly the owners (Dave And Jacqui) were some of the most quality people you would ever want to meet. Helpful beyond reproach (which is very helpful in this overwhelming metropolis) and simply just wonderful human beings! Thanks so much for all your help and guidance around the neighborhood and Brooklyn in general. Anytime you are in Boston do not hesitate to give a call. Best, Mark,Suzy and Max
Oh my goodness!! This property was amazing!! We rented the parlor apartment for our family (2 adults and 2-18 year old boys) and it worked out perfectly. We each had our own sleeping space and our own beds which were very comfortable. It was great to have the kitchen and the store was within walking distance so we were able to have a good breakfast each morning before heading into the city for the day. Thank you David and Jacqui for the grocery cart you loaned to us as well as all the directions to get around. The subway was 3 blocks away and we felt very safe at all times coming and going. The A express took us right into the city and the trip was about 1/2 hour to Times Square. There was also a corner store that worked well for extra beverages to take in our backpack each day. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. David and Jacqui were very helpful with any and all questions we had. The neighborhood was quite, we felt right at home. We flew into LaGuarida and took a cab for around $30. For transportation back, David gave us a number for a car service and it ran the same price. After a long day of exploring I loved the soaker tub!! The shower was great as well. We really felt like we were right at home and we would recommend staying here to anyone and we really want to come back!! Thank you Jaquic to helping us with all our questions before we arrived. And thank you David for the detailed list of all the fun things to do in Brooklyn. Our only regret was that we didn't have more time, it was hard to leave.
Wir waren mit unseren Söhnen, 13 und 16 Jahre in NYC. Die Wohnung ist noch viel schöner als auf den Fotos, riesig, überall Kunst, einmalig und individuell einrichtet, extrem sauber, tolle alte Fußböden, Oleander blühte im Schlafzimmer 1, draußen schöner Innenhof, tolle gärtnerische Gestaltung, Besitzer haben "grünen Daumen". Küche sehr schön und funktionell, schönes Bad. Perfektes Domizil um nach anstrengenden Manhattan Trips abends zu relaxen. Gegend hauptsächlich von netten "bürgerlichen" Afroamerikanern bewohnt, man fühlt sich völlig sicher, auch als Frau alleine, Nachts bei weit geöffneten Fenstern geschlafen, alles ganz ruhig und sicher. Schöne Gegend, mit tollen Brownstone Häusern. In ca. 3 min. Entfernung Subway Station Nostrand Avenue. Wir kauften dort dort das Wochenticket für 29$. U-Bahn fahren in NYC überhaupt kein Problem!!!! Von hier aus den A-Train Richtung Manhattan nehmen. Der A-Train ist ein Express Zug, ist am schnellsten in Manhattan, ca 10 Minuten. Man kann auch in den C-Train steigen, der hält dann allerdings an jeder Station. Wir haben uns die teure Bustour gespart und sind ab Fulton Street mit dem 5er Bus bis zum Central Park und zurück gefahren. Geht alles mit der Metro Card. Adressen von Restaurants am Kühlschrank, Reiseführer und New York Magazine liegen aus. Vermieter sehr nett und hilfsbereit, tolle Tipps und jederzeit per Telefon erreichbar. Danke Roman!!! Wir haben die Zeit sehr genossen und können die Wohnung bedingungslos empfehlen.
I stayed here with my family (4 adults and 2 kids) and we had a great time in this trip. The apartment was nice, clean, near to the subway and the air conditioning was working well (thank God 'cause it was SO hot). The owners were gentle! i realy recomend.

Ce fut un super séjour. Une vie de new-yorkais mieux que nous l'imaginions. Arrivée dans le quartier en taxi en 20 mn. Immeuble très typique dans un quartier commerçant (supermarché -où l'on vous emballe vos courses dans des sacs sans restriction-, boucher poissonnier -le rosbeef super tendre à 4 € le kilo et le homard cuit de 700 g à moins de 10 €-, primeur -myrtilles et fraises californiennes à moins de 2 € le kilo- en plus la station de métro est à 5 mn (ligne A express qui nous amene au coeur de manhatan en 10 mn, à la 200e rue de Harlem en moins d'1 heure et à Cosney Island en 30 mn et au retour au terminal 8 de JFK en 45 mn pour 7.25 $)
Et que dire de l'appartement de Jacki et David, grand, beaux volumes, splendide parquet, déco "arty", hyper confortable et cocoon, cuisine bien équipée. On apprend le plan du subway par coeur "sur le trône". Bien chauffé voire un peu trop la nuit... (Il y a bien longtemps en France que l'on ne peut plus se balader l'hiver pieds nus et en tee shirt dès le réveil soumis que nous sommes aux restrictions énergétiques).
Merci pour tout Jacki et David. On s'est senti chez vous, comme chez nous et nous savons que désormais, on a "un pied à terre" à Brooklin !

All was perfect, very friendly and easy going, as beautiful as on the images and well equipped apartment!
We were booked for a week, and arrived into Penn Station by train. No problem finding the place based on great directions from David and Jacqui, and we arrived to a very warm welcome from same. The "Parlour" was everything pictured, and more. The bed was very comfortable, and since we were only two, the place seem huge. A large entry room, great living room and the kitchen was perfectly sized for us, with everything we would need. We loved all the personal decorating touches and the classic louvered window covers, that "disappeared" into the window frames. You could use the shower curtain to check out the subway system! Dave & Jaqui were just up a flight of stairs, and available to help and to answer our myriad questions. They were kind enough to let us use their computer to check on emails and surf for theatre tickets, and made phone calls on our behalf where needed. Groceries and small ethnic restaurants all within short walks. The subway was 3 short blocks away, and an easy run into Manhatten. Fulton Ave had some neat local shopping, (Doug found a great hat there.) When it was time to leave, David arranged for an escort car to take us directly to La Guardia for $30 plus tip. We forgot to check one closet when leaving, and left behind some clothing. After getting our ok, David took the time to mail it to us. Would we recommend this place to others? In a heartbeat. Great place, great hosts.
Hints: We got our monies worth and more from the $29 unlimited use metro pass. Definitely ask for both a metro and subway map at the kiosks. To see the 9/11 memorial you have to line up early at the memorial office to get a pass. Access limited due to construction. Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge at night. Wonderful. Appointments also needed to see 30 Rock, and NBC. Go to see Empire State on weekday, otherwise 90 minutes in lineups. Take the handouts from street hawkers, one save us $100 on theatre tickets for Memphis. There are neat weekend flea markets on West 25th, and Hell's Kitchen.
There are so many wonderful things to say about the Parlor. I think the easiest way to convey them is in list format:
1. The owners are awesome and should be cloned for the betterment of humanity.
2. Pictures do not adequately portray how friggin' HUGE this place is.
3. 14ft ceilings = 14ft sliding bedroom doors = never seen before except on Falcon Crest.
4. Art, art, art, everywhere.
5. 2 blocks aways from the A & C subway lines. Pretty much the only two lines you'll ever need to explore all of Manhattan.
6. 3 blocks away from G line for all you skinny jean types.
7. 6 blocks from LIRR for all you power suit types.
8. Fold-out sofa mattresses.
9. Fold-out sofas that are so comfortable you don't need to fold them out.
10. The friendly, helpful, beautiful people of Bedford Stuyvesant, and that one crazy guy on the subway that called Jay-Z a Republican.
11. Did I mention David and Jacqui (the owners) are awesome? If you don't have a clue what to do this day, week, month–they do, and can tell you how to get there.
12. Newly refurbished kitchen.
13. Amazing hardwood floors with alternating designs and colors.
14. The surrounding dutch colonials.
15. The quiet streets at night.
16. Great nearby restaurants: Indian, Chinese, Thai, and other ethnic fare, plus standard half-assed american franchises like McDonalds and cute, independent coffee shops like Ms. Dalhia's.
17. Boombox atop the refrigerator with an Air CD in it.
18. Feeling like part of the community walking down Nostrand Ave.
19. Never feeling like I was unsafe.
20. That bodega that sold pig tails out of a vat.
