“Great home away from home minutes away from NYC”

We stayed 4 nights in this basement apartment. It was comfortable and it well suited our needs and budget. Free street parking outside the door was a bonus and easy to load and unload the car. This place is just a hop, skip and a jump from the subway that takes you one stop to Manhattan. Jeanne was great to deal with and I would recommend this place to anyone. The beds were comfortable and you don't need to bring along any sheets or towels. There were a lot of great places to pick up groceries on Manhattan Blvd. Staying in Greenpoint also allowed us an opportunity to visit Brooklyn and give us many opportunities to see the skyline of NYC. Take the ferry to Manhattan - you won't regret it!

“A great time in a great apartment”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The apartment was totally perfect for us. We (family with 2 adult daughters) have immediately felt at home in the comfortable and clean apartment. The apartment is even nicer than the photos promise. Manhattan is quickly reached. We would recommend the apartment without any doubt.

“Good place to stay if you want to avoid busy New York”

Greenpoint is one stop on the Metro from Manhattan. This basement flat is below a 2storey house where the owner Jeanne lives. It is on a quiet one one way rd, close to 2 Metro stations, one an 8 minute walk over a bridge , and the other. 5 minute walk in the opposite direction , but you need to change trains to go to NY Central. Flat has one bedroom with very comfy bed. TV flat screen and small. Kettle heated up on stove, but all other conveniences. Could hear family in mornings as they got ready for school or work, but not too noisy. Felt a bit scared 1st night walking street to store but after that, felt pretty safe at night. Ate mainly in NY itself, plenty of restaurants there. Would have liked a proper map of the area that detailed the location of shops and stations as felt lost for the first couple of days. Overall, good place to stay. Push button key entry

“The best place to stay by far”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We have just returned from our second stay in Greenpoint, and it was as wonderful as we remember it. The apartment is fantastic, with everything you need, especially very good air conditioning! We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Highlights this year were exploring Long Island City - a 10 minute walk from the apartment over the Pulaski Bridge with amazing views of the Manhattan skyline on the way. Lots of great bars and restaurants. We particularly enjoyed Woodbines on Vernon Boulevard (great service, food and wine). Testaccios a couple of doors down was great too, as was Blend, all within 2 minutes of each other. Perfect accommodation in a friendly and interesting community. You can't ask for more!

“Close to New York City, comfortable, complete, and quiet”

We stayed for 5 days with 2 teenagers. Even though we haven't met Jeanne in person due to her own holidays she made us feel at home from the very first moment by arranging things perfectly. The apartment is complete since everything you would expect from an apartment is present. Airco worked fine during the heatwave we encountered, kitchen is complete, shower is comfortable and wireless internet works fast and faultless (which is appreciated when travelling with teenagers). The subway was close by and travelling via line G station Greenpoint Avenue (access in India Street) and then change to line 7 station Court Square is a quick and easy way of getting to Grand Central Station or Times Square.
There is a grocery store (called Fresh Market and located on 953 Manhatten Avenue) close by with everything you need.

We experienced only one minor issue. The couch can be converted into a double bed but for an adult (or in our case a 6 ft 4 tall teenager) it's not the most comfortable bed to sleep on for 5 days. That said, it's really a minor issue as our son slept well and the quiet neighbourhood is a great plus during the night.

Thanks to Jeanne whose hospitality made a great start to our vacation.
