We stayed in Shirley's gorgeous apartment for close to a month, and it was everything we could have dreamed of.

It was super comfortable, always toasty when the weather was cooler, and had absolutely everything we needed.

Clinton Hill is a fantastic area, and there were lots of great food options nearby - try Mike's for breakfast, Choice for good coffee, and the 3 Luigi's for super yummy pizza.

The apartment was also literally just down the road from the subway station.

Friends told us before we visited that we would get sick of catching the subway into Manhattan, but that wasn't the case at all. We spent just as much time in Brooklyn, and it doesn't take long to get into Manhattan at all. We also found it was much easier to find good, healthy food in Brooklyn.

We'd stay at Shirley's apartment again in a heartbeat - hopefully in the not too distant future! Thanks again, Shirley!

“Perfect Position”

After 24 hours of travel and arriving later than expected it was so good to arrive and see for ourselves that the property was exactly as pictured and reviewed. Shirley was there to greet us and gave us a full rundown of the property and the area. It is close to shops and restaurants and an easy subway ride into Manhattan. We spent two full days in Brooklyn and loved every minute of it. Would definitely stay again, thanks Shirley

“The Perfect Home away from Home”
Reviewed 21 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

My wife and I stayed here for two weeks in October 2014. Before touchdown Shirley had sent us tips to alleviate stress, including directions to help the taxi driver, directions via subway connections etc. She was amazing. When we arrived at the house we were met by her beautiful family before she showed us the apartment.

The Apartment was fantastic and immediately appealed to both of us. It was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. It had everything we needed for two weeks stay and is close to everything, a supermarket across the street and various restaurants very close by.

The Apartment is also very close to the subway and the surrounding streets are very beautiful. The comfort of having your own door to lock cannot be overstated. Although the Apartment is underneath the family home, it is very private and it is entirely yours for the duration of your stay with no interference.

Saying that, Shirley is always available if you require anything. We loved our stay and could not recommend this apartment highly enough, if you are considering a holiday in New York as we did, Brooklyn is close enough, very cheap if you purchase an unlimited metro card for travel into the city. The Apartment is affordable and very comfortable with everything you will need. Brooklyn is a great place to explore and less frantic than New York.

Shirley and family were amazing, helpful and polite. We had a great holiday.

“Peaceful rest during a New York ride”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have been here for a week last July. The owner, Shirley, was nice and very helpful to us. The apartment is fully furnished, very clean, with a very complete kitchen. The neighbour is nice, safe and complete with supermarket, restaurant (try the Luigi,s Pizza). The metro is very close and this place represents a very nice base to visit Manhattan. Prospect Park is close and so is Williamsburg. We really enjoied our stay . If we wil come back to NY we very probably try to come back here.

“Beautiful and clean appartment, located close to metro station”

We spent 3 awesome days in NYC, staying in Shirley's appartment. Before the trip she provided very helpful information about how to reach the appartment best from the airport and answered all questions we had very quickly! We payed half of the price in advance, the rest when we arrived at the appartment.
The appartment itself is very nice and cosy: There is one bedroom, one bathroom, a living room with one extra bed and a small kitchen. Everything what we needed was available and the appartment was very clean :-) Around the corner is a supermarket where you can get all kind of food and stuff, there is also a small coffee shop and one of those deli&grocery stores.
Summarizing we had a great stay, and Shirley is a very friendly and helpful host!
Thank you :)
