Stephen and his wife want to make it to your liking. What struck me was that the apartment has been cleaned as soon as we evening aankwamen.Verder until we find the apartment not finished. There is a bar with 2 people to sit. Food is done with the board on your lap on the couch. Also we did not get what we booked the stay. Stephen has several apartments on the floors. To the nearest metro station is 20 minutes walk.
Stephen en zijn vrouw willen het naar je zin
maken. Wat me opviel was dat het appartement nog even gauw werd schoongemaakt, terwijl wij 's avonds pas aankwamen.Verder vinden wij het appartement niet af. Er is alleen een bar om met 2 personen aan te zitten. Eten doe je met het bord op schoot op de bank. Ook kregen wij niet het verblijf wat wij geboekt hadden. Stephen heeft meerdere appartementen op de verdiepingen. Naar het dichstbijzijnde metrostation is het 20 minuten lopen.
The owner, Steve, is a nice person but his apartment needs to be upgraded to meet higher living conditions.
Stephen has been a great host and was there to help us with any questions or problems we had. The apartment is really nice and we felt very comfortable staying there. The distance to the metrostation was a bit long.Besides that there are some good places to eat in the neighborhood. We enjoyed staying in this apartment.
+ nice place, 6 good beds, kitchen,main room in quiet neighbourhood
30 metro-minutes from Manhattan
(we bought a 5 day day metro ticket for 29 USD)
and 30 bicycle minutes (accross Brooklyn Bridge) we also rented bikes, which was great, because we could see all of Manhattan on bikes. Good host.
Only proposed improvements for Stephen/appartment; a bit more kitchen quipment, repair one of the TV's. Maybe some of the taps and bowls could be updated a bit.
We can recommend staying here.

We had an excellent stay. The apartment is very nice, large and well-equipped , and the district is lively with many stores and places to eat. The subway station is a 10 min walk from the house, and a 15-20 min ride from Manhattan. Stephen and his wife were very helpful and available.
Die Wohnung ist groß (bis auf das Bad) und schön, wenn auch etwas renovierungsbedürftig. Stephen und seine Frau waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit, aber wir bekamen nicht die Wohnung, die wir eigentlich gebucht hatten (was normal zu sein scheint, da die beiden anscheinend mehrere Wohnungen gleichzeitig vermieten) und die ausgemachten Check-In und Check-Out Zeiten wurden nicht wirklich eingehalten. Ansonsten war es eine gute Möglichkeit, sehr authentisch in Brooklyn zu wohnen und innerhalb von 40 Minuten (10 Min. davon zur U-Bahn) mitten in Manhatten sein zu können.
First, the neigberhood! Amazing, its just after that we realise it was in the childhood of our favorite hip hop artists. The owner was friendly and easygoing, she gave us all the indications that we needed. Métro station by 10 minutes walks. If you dont wanna return un Manhattan for the dinner, you can have wathever you want for good restaurants, less than 15 minutes walk. The only bad comment i can say is that the appartement miss some finished on the details like paint and materials... Overall it was just what we need for 2 nights. I would come again for sure, more for the environnement itselfe than the appartement who was actully great but mot more than that for the price.
The studio on the first floor at the back of 305 Jefferson Avenue did not live up to our expectations described on the web site. It was still under renovation and offered the bare minimum. The impression was dull and tired looking. Windows dirty and only one opened. Very difficult to find at night as there was no outside light. Lots of flaking paint, bare wires, and broken step.
I booked this studio for the 30th of July 2015 for me, my husband and my son. The host Stephen sent his friend Daphne to open the studio for us, but when we got there we noticed that the studio was really dirty, needing a lot of conservation, lights were broken, window so dirty you almost could not see through it, the mattress was incredibly old, not to speak about the dirty third bed which mattress was impossible to sleep so bad it was its condition!
Daphne was very very nice and called the host on her own telephone and put us on line. Stephen did not wanted us to stay for only one night because he had somebody interested on the studio for the next day, so we agreed together that we would not stay and he would refund us through Paypal.
Wimdu could check the veracity of these facts simply calling Daphne which phone number is on my Wimdu's inbox, on my talks to the host Stephen.
But know he does not answer my phone calls or inbox contacts. I have opened a dispute through Paypal but they did not ask me for any proof and denied to give me back the $242, giving the success of the cause to WIMDU!
We visited the home of Stephen six of us for two weeks a great stay in New York.
The apartment is located in a quiet residential area in the borough of Brooklyn in a beautiful old Town House, which is currently being refurbished by Stephen gradually. Noise due to the renovations we did not perceived during the stay, but a bit of debris was before the House. The center of New York you are traveling with the subway about 15 minutes. Grocery stores are within walking distance in about 5-10 minutes, the trendy district Williamsburg also in about 15 minutes.
The apartment is located on the top floor, which is, however, only be reached via quite narrow stairs. For six people, although it is sufficient, but in fact a little cramped because two people have to sleep in the living room. In addition, there is only a bathroom. However, the equipment is mostly new and solid. Through lots of windows, it is also nice and bright and cozy in the whole house. In the large open kitchen can also cook class and eat.
Stephen and his family were great and very accommodating. In case of problems they were always accessible all day and are always already excursions and insider tips to tell from the neighborhood. Overall, one learns in Brooklyn actually know a completely different side of New York and love. Both for people who are for the first time in NY and also for people who have been frequent in the Big Apple so a great experience!
Wir haben die Wohnung von Stephen zu sechst besucht und hatten für knapp zwei Wochen einen tollen Aufenthalt in New York.
Die Wohnung befindet sich in einem ruhigen Wohngebiet im Stadtteil Brooklyn in einem wunderschönen alten Townhouse, das momentan von Stephen nach und nach renoviert wird. Lärm wegen der Renovierungsarbeiten haben wir allerdings während des Aufenthalts keinen wahrgenommen, etwas Schutt lag allerdings vor dem Haus. Bis ins Zentrum New Yorks ist man mit der U-Bahn ungefähr 15 Minuten unterwegs. Lebensmittelmärkte sind zu Fuß in etwa 5-10 MInuten zu erreichen, das trendige Viertel Williamsburg ebenfalls in etwa 15 MInuten.
Die Ferienwohnung liegt im obersten Stockwerk, die allerdings nur über recht schmale Treppen zu erreichen ist. Für sechs Personen ist es zwar ausreichend, jedoch tatsächlich etwas beengt, da zwei Leute im Wohnzimmer schlafen müssen. Außerdem gibt es nur ein Badezimmer. Die Ausstattung ist jedoch größtenteils neuwertig und solide. Durch viele Fenster ist es außerdem in der ganzen Wohnung schön hell und gemütlich. In der großen, offenen Küche lässt sich außerdem klasse kochen und essen.
Stephen und seine Familien waren klasse und sehr zuvorkommend. Bei Problemen waren sie stets den ganzen Tag erreichbar und sind auch immer bereits Ausflugstipps und Insidertipps aus der Nachbarschaft zu erzählen. Insgesamt lernt man in Brooklyn tatsächlich eine ganz andere Seite von New York kennen und lieben. Sowohl für Leute, die das erste Mal in NY sind aber auch für Leute, die schon häufiger im Big Apple waren also eine tolle Erfahrung!
