Private and full of natural light. Top floor apartment in a limestone house, rich with old world details on a quiet block in historic Brooklyn. Tastefully decorated in an eclectic style with a nod to vintage aesthetics and modern comforts.

Le logement

Perfect for a small family, couple, or traveling with friends. This is your opportunity to have the best of both worlds: experience the real Brooklyn, with easy access to the hippest parts of Manhattan.

The apartment is a private, self-contained floor-through apartment on the second floor of our limestone row house. We live on the bottom floors and enter the house through a separate entrance.

We are a few blocks away from the Gates Ave. stop on the J/Z subway line. It's about a 30-35 minute subway ride to anywhere in downtown Manhattan via an elevated, photogenic train track that will take you across the Williamsburg Bridge. The A/C line is about a 10 minute walk from the house - also a useful line that accesses many parts of Manhattan.

Our house is rich with history and old-world details. It is located in Stuyvesant Heights (also known as Bedford Stuyvesant, or Bed Stuy), a picturesque and historic Brooklyn neighborhood. We are located on a quiet street and one of three homes on the block originally built for Franciscan Friars, whose beautiful 19th Century church is still in use just a few doors down.

You will have the entire second floor to your self. Sunny and spacious, it has a well-equipped kitchen with modern appliances, coffee maker, silverware, plates, pots and pans, toaster, etc. There are complimentary tea, coffee, and water in the fridge for your enjoyment.

Some other amenities include: towels, basic toiletries, coffeemakers (American, French-press, and Italian espresso), clothes hangers, hairdryer, iron, ironing board, two electric fans, and one electric space heater.

You will have a private bathroom and 4 rooms: living room, dining room, bedroom 1, and bedroom 2. Each room has doors and can either be closed off into its own private space, or joined with other rooms to form a single, spacious loft-like living space.

THE LIVING ROOM faces the street side of the house. It has a full-sized modernist Italian white leather futon that easily converts into a comfortable bed, which appears to be slightly narrower than a full size bed, but should accommodate 2 people with no problem. This room features a gorgeous antique mantel complete with mirror and multicolored tiles. The two windows give plenty of natural light during the day.

THE DINING ROOM is as seen in photos, and situated between the living room and bedroom 1. It has pocket doors with beautiful art nouveau etched glass windows.

BEDROOM 1 faces the garden side of the house. It features a comfortable full-sized bed, full-length mirror, a chest of drawers, ample closet space, and a desk. The two windows give the room plenty of natural light during the day.

BEDROOM 2 is a small bedroom facing the street side of the house on a quiet block. It features a comfortable full-sized bed, but doesn't have much room for anything else. Guests staying in this room can use the closet in the dining room for storing their luggage and clothes.

You have the option of putting up a comfortable high-end full-size air mattress in the living room or dining room. Air mattress available upon request.

Accès des voyageurs

Guests will have access to a private, self-contained apartment on the second floor. One flight of stairs outside the house, then one flight of stairs inside the house, so two flights of stairs total. Unfortunately, the apartment is not handicap accessible.

We live on the bottom floors downstairs and enter the house through a separate entrance.

We have FREE PUBLIC STREET PARKING on our block. We do NOT have a private reserved parking spot. Unlike a lot of places in NYC, it's generally not hard to find a parking spot in front of or near our house.

Un appartement confortable/spacieux/stylé/calme dans Bed-Stuy, un quartier afro-americain en voie de gentrification. Ambiance rap dans les voitures, gospel dans les nombreuses églises. Pittoresque et détendu. Pas loin du métro pour se rendre partout. Pas loin de Bushwick, la nouvelle Mecque du street-art. Idéal pour ceux qui pensent que Manhattan est un musée.

Appartement bien placé et proche du métro . Compter 1h de Time Square avec 1 changement de ligne. Appartement agréable mais la rue est assez bruyante et il n'y a pas de double vitrage ... ni de rideaux ! La chambre de derrière est plus calme . Hôte sympathiques et attentionnés .

Réponse de Kevin & Yuan :
Thank you for taking the time to review our apartment. I'm sorry you found the street to be loud. This is the FIRST time we have heard such a complaint from a guest. More often than not, our guests comment on how quiet the block is, especially compared to the rest of NYC. Moreover, I want to point out that Putnam Ave. is a strictly residential, not commercial, street. Our neighbors are made up of churches and elderly residents. It is true that Putnam Ave. has car and pedestrian traffic, but so does the rest of NYC, and on average much more traffic than our street. Having lived in various neighborhoods in Manhattan before moving here, we have always found the relative quiet and peace on our block to be a blessing and luxury. As for your commentary that the front bedroom facing the street is louder than the back bedroom, I want to point out that at the time of your booking, the front bedroom was not even ADVERTISED as part of the apartment. We put a bed in the front bedroom and opened it for guests only shortly before your arrival. Essentially you got the second bedroom as a FREE bonus, and we did not charge you extra for it. With all due respect, complaining about something you received for free on a public forum strikes us as poor taste. Last but not least, we need to respond to your commentary about the lack of double-paned windows and curtains. For the record, we have white cotton curtains on all windows except the kitchen window, designed to provide guests privacy without blocking out natural light. We are also in the process of installing opaque window shades to the bedroom windows, which should arrive any day now. As for the lack of double glazing, we are not sure why this is a ground for criticism, or why you would even care, considering you left the windows facing the street open for most of your stay.

My family of 4 was really pleased with Kevin and Yuan's house and hospitality. Even if we didnt get to meet them, they were easy to join if we need help. The house was clean, comfortable and heated especially during our stay when it was very cold in NYC. We thank again our host for all the good restaurants and cafes recommendations. The area we lived in brooklyn was safe even if it took at least 40min to get to lower Manhattan. We surely recommend Yuan and Kevin's house in brooklyn and will stay there again if we come back to NYC.

I highly recommend the place! Yuan and Kevin are wonderful hosts, very attentive and most helpful. They met all our requests instantly. The apartment itself is lovely, with little arty details, we felt at home at once. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, but not out of the way. It's just a short walk to the subway (5-10 Minutes). We had a splendid time!

Kevin and Yuan's place was perfect for our stay in Brooklyn, and they were very easy to communicate with. The place is a beautiful old brownstone with tons of character and charm and was easy to get to by mta. We loved it and would definitely stay again!
