We stayed here for three weeks with our three boys this summer and had a wonderful time.
The apartment is spacious, clean and has all amenities one could ask for. Charles was friendly and hospitable and always easy to ask.
The neighbourhood has several cafes, a wonderful pizzeria and many supermarkets. There were also a few playground nearby, which was good for us. There is a ten minute walk to the metro, which took about 15 minutes to southern Manhattan.
We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to experence the buzz of New York while staying in a more relaxed neighbourhood. Thank you for a lovely stay!
We had a great time in Bed-Stuy thanks to these wonderful accomodations. Thanks KC!
now we are back in Berlin and want to thank You for the nice stay in Your house. It was a wonderful week we spent in NY in Your flat. Aspecially Your assistance made it so convenient for us.
Thanks a lot and all the best from Berlin

We were 5 people and the apartment was very comfortable for all of us.
It is very clean, spacious, the owner is very friendly and always available when needed.
I strongly suggest him ;-)
Easy to park car right outside the appartment. My family and I (2 Adults and 2 children) felt safe and at ease in this appartment and authentic neighbourhood. The walk to the subway was 10 minutes. Very like the London underground with two trains A and C to take us into Manhattan (express train 20 minutes). The apartment is well equipped and offers everything you need with a variety of tv channels. Visiting in August we found it hot and humid so air conditioning was a definite plus. Kwabena the owner lives in the basement appartment and was friendly and helpful.

We felt at ease in this Brooklyn apartment. The location is great, with shops, restaurants and the A / C line to Manhattan only a couple of blocks away. We stayed for a week with our 3 children (aging from 8 to 12 years), and felt absolutely safe when wandering through the neighbourhood. The apartment offers everything you need, and as specified on the web site. You can also cook and have dinner in this apartment, should you like to. And last but not least, Kwabena, the owner, is very friendly and helpful in pointing out directions, printing maps of the neighbourhood, and giving tips on what to visit. This really enhanced our New York experience, We would definitely go back to this apartment, shoudl we plan to pay New York another visit.
I don't normally write reviews but i realise how much i have relied on them to pick places so i have this time. We stayed at this apt for 4 days. Overall not bad but i felt the bathroom could have been cleaner and the shower was not very powerful. The pictures on the advert make it out to be bigger than it is but for a base it was fine. Only one channel on the television worked. Main bedroom was spacious and the fan was a wonderful necessity. Not much space in the second bedroom.
The walk to the metro was a leisurely 15 min walk in the heat with not may places to eat or have coffee around and unfortunately we chose 2 days when there was work on the line and they stopped the trains at night and to find a yellow taxi in Manhattan that will take you all the way out there was a night mare and when we did find one none of the drivers knew where it was so we ended up guessing the way home.
We only saw Charles once but he was very helpful in calling a taxi and getting the washing done for me which was much appreciated. Overall good but slightly to far out.
NYC was hot, hot, hot. We had air conditioning though!
- Peaches restaurant was the best. Eat there
-The walk to the subway was about 9 blocks through the park. But easy.
-Charles met us when we arrived and we could unload all our stuff.
-Parking our car was sooooo easy. We left it right by the gate for all three days.
-Decent water pressure in shower.
- Most Museums are closed on Mondays!
-We did the NYC pass and caught the water taxi by DUMBO. That was very easy too.
- Charles was very friendly and helpful.
- I felt safe in the neighborhood.
Overall I would recommend this to anyone who can walk! Kim
We had 2 wonderful weeks in this spacy and well equiped apartment in Brooklyn. The subway is as described before only 10 minutes away and with the express train you reach Manhattan within 15-20 minutes. Kwabena is a really great host and helpful with just everything.
We highly recommend this place for your stay in New York.
Thank you Kwabena!
The apartment was good for our one week stay (4 adults). We had a comfortable stay. Kwabena was very friendly and helpful with information about traveling with the subway to and from downtown, JFK-airport, etc.
Safe neighborhood, with stores just around the corner and a few excellent restaurants!!
Many thanks Kwabena.

Kwabena was very helpful with information about the surrounding area and also with the transportation system. The place was perfect for my month long stay and the high speed internet was very helpful! There was a great little Italian restaurant just around the corner and the neighborhood was safe. The Therapy Wine Bar down the street is also nice. Kwabena also provided me with great laundry service and was quick to reply whenever i had a question or needed help!
We spent 7 days and 8 nights in the apartment. The owner Kwabena is very helpful. Our late arrival at midnight was no problem for him. The apartment was clean and has all the things you need for a pleasant stay. On the way to the nearby subway you can visit the supermarket "Food Town" with a large range of goods. Even with later return we never felt unsafe in the subway or in the surrounding of the apartment.
Wir waren 7 Tage und 8 Nächte in der Wohnung. Der Eigentümer Kwabena ist sehr hilfsbereit. Unsere verspätete Ankunft gegen Mitternacht war kein Problem für ihn. Die Wohnung war sauber und verfügte über alle notwendigen Dinge für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt. Auf dem Weg zur U-Bahn liegt der Supermarkt "Foodtown" mit einem guten Warensortiment. Auch bei später Rückkehr haben wir uns in der U-Bahn und in der Umgebung der Wohnung nie unsicher gefühlt.

About the home:
Ask New Yorkers for the upcoming spot in the city and fingers point to Brooklyn. Tucked away in a turn of the century townhouse in Park Slope, this delightful home belongs to a pair of start-up professionals and feels as fresh and dynamic as its locale, its light-filled rooms and warm wood surfaces touched off with informal touches. The ideal place from where to begin an exploration.
Your hosts are transplants from Manhattan who, when not taking in the boutiques and eateries of nearby Fifth Avenue, use their considerable energy and innovative talents fine-tuning their lovely home.
Be the first to rise in the elegantly simple bedroom where the restrained but pitch perfect furnishings suffuse the place with an air of tranquility. The burnished floors and expansive windows are spread throughout the home, bathing light on the plush couches and metallic golds and blues of the decorative fireplaces.

onefinestay gives you the chance to stay in someone's place while they're out of town. You get to live their life for a few days and nights.
Every home is properly cleaned before and after you stay, beds made (we can even do hospital corners) and bathrooms kitted out with luxury toiletries. There's a maid service if you want it, as well as other hotel-style amenities.
Once we've helped you settle in, we're just a call away, 24/7. If it's something we can't solve over the phone, we'll pop over to lend a hand.
And because nobody wants to be a tourist, our homes come with use of an iPhone loaded with personal and unique recommendations from the people who live in them -- places to eat, things to do and adventures to go on.
