“Hard to fault”
This is a very belated review of a wonderful 7 day stay at Shirley's fantastic apartment in September 2014 with my wife and then 9 month son. It is hard to add anything new to all the other fantastic reviews but just wanted to take the time to recommend it to others. Shirley was fantastic to deal with before and during my stay and the apartment was both spotless and well proportioned. Compared to some hotels i have stayed in over in Manhattan it was huge and the extra space was a great help with a 9 month old crawling about. I was concerned the subway into and out of Manhattan would get to be a pain in the backside (more so with a buggy) but it wasn't a issue at all and we spent a great deal of time exploring Brooklyn and the lovely area the apartment is located which was a nice change of pace and very family friendly. We actually walked into Manhattan a few times from the apartment and while you wouldn't want to do it everyday we found it to be a nice way to ease us into a day in Manhattan. In conclusion lovely apartment, lovely location and a lovely family. You really won't regret your stay.
Shirley's apartment is lovely. The bathroom is large and very nicely updated as is the kitchen. The area is safe and among the best in Brooklyn. She is a very nice lady who looks after every detail. I hope to stay here in the future.
My boyfriend and I stayed in Shirleys apartment for five nights. The apartment is gorgeous and kept in perfect condition. It was clean and tidy but also very homely and cosy. Shirley and her husband were very welcoming and helpful. The flat was warm and quiet so we slept very well every night. It also feels very safe and secure. The location itself is lovely. I would definitely recommend exploring Clinton Hill and the surrounding Brooklyn area. A short walk from the apartment is a street full of bars and cafes that all look fab, we ate at Hoja Santa, Dino's and Brooklyn Public House- all up to an amazing standard. There is also a supermarket and gorgeous bakery just across the street from the apartment. Additionally the apartment is right next to a subway stop so getting into the city is really easy. I would recommend this apartment to anyone! Thankyou Shirley for a lovely stay.
“Double booked! Ruined vacation!”
I was told just a few days before Memorial Day that I was overbooked for this apartment and my choices are to receive a refund or to choose between two other apartments. Since it was too late to find something better on my own before a major holiday, I choose one of the apartments offered by Shirley. The apartment did NOT have a TV, microwave or w/d and it was furnished in a very minimalistic style. I paid the same amount as for the apartment listed here. Bait and switch or just a mistake? I will never know, but what I know is that my vacation was ruined. Be warned about the risk of being overbooked and informed about it just a few days before your stay.
Response from the owner I am so sorry that your vacation was ruined. Mistakes do happen as you rightly agreed and every effort as made on my part to savage your 3 night stay. There was no bait and switch. I could have simply refunded you but instead took time to research comparable listings in our neighborhood for you to choose from. Having booked only the month before I had hoped that you would be understanding of the situation. I am deeply saddened by this review. My only consolation is to know that this, my only bad review, is from someone who has not actually stay here. Best regards, SC
“Comfortable, clean and convenient”
We enjoyed our stay in Shirley's apartment. We used it as a base while we explored NYC and would highly recommend it to others. It was clean and comfortable. While we did not cook, the kitchen is well equipped. The location is great with a number of great places close by (as recommended by other reviewers; Choice, Dough and Urban Vintage Cafe). It is close to the subway which we used many times. While we were there, Shirley had to get someone in to fix the furnace and she was very good with the communications to inform us any updates. Thank you for the lovely stay.
“Safe and Quiet”
We stayed at Shirley's Brooklyn apartment for 10 nights. It was the perfect retreat after 10 huge days and nights manic New York sightseeing. The street is quiet, the subway station about a minute's walk to the house. It is warm and cozy and very clean and comfortable. The air con was a great bonus as a couple of days it was extremely warm. The deli/coffee shop just a few metres down the road is excellent for morning coffees and take out dinner. And there is a supermarket opposite that. Shirley was helpful and gave us good tips . The washing machine and dryer were great on such a longterm stay. We would definitely stay here again when we return to New York again.
“Excellent Brooklyn apartment”
We stayed here with our two teenage sons for 5 days. We cannot recommend it highly enough. Shirley was an excellent hostess - offering advice when asked but otherwise leaving us to enjoy our stay. The apartment was spotlessly clean, everything we needed was provided including a washing machine and dryer. Breakfast pastries from the Choice Market a few doors down were heavenly and the owner was a delight. There were loads of places to eat and drink (try the Brooklyn Tap House) after a busy day taking in the sights and sounds of Manhattan. It was lovely to come back to such a friendly neighborhood each evening!
“Very comfortable and easy to travel out and about.”
The reviews are all accurate. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and couldn't have asked for any thing extra. I particularly liked the capacious washing machines which we needed being light and sweaty travelers. We were in New York during a heatwave and it was wonderful to stagger back to the apartment after a day of activity, switch on the super efficient air conditioning, open a beer and watch a great film on the enormous TV. On our last day Shirley was very accommodating allowing us to stay later than the normal check out time as our flight was quite late. Oh, and the wi-fi is excellent.
“The best Place to Stay!”
We arrived on a cold Sunday evening to find Shirley waiting for us. Well, what an amazing apartment! Perfect for our family of 4, including our 2 boys aged 5 & 6. The amenities of the apartment were more than adequate for us. The location fantastic! Close to a wonderful local bakery (pastries to die for) and a supermarket with all your needs. A short trip to Manhattan on the subway, which our boys loved, and very easy to navigate after a few go's :-) We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 nights at Shirley's lovely apartment and cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you!
Property is in lovely location, with bakery, cafe and subway all close by. apartment well equipped and very good value. Hosts very friendly and helpful. All in all a great stay.
