Overview

About the property

sleeps 5, one bathroom ,one bedroom

On the third floor of a hundred years old brownstone, la Maison des Sirenes is perfect for anybody appreciating style and comfort. Affordable but not 'cheap', La Maison des Sirenes is well dressed!!! The apartment was decorated with taste and I meticulously picked every single of furnitures myself. This is the first apartment I ever rented as a vacation rental(August 2007).

It is located on one of the most coveted block of Bedstuy(tree lined). It features a master bedroom,an antique bathroom, fully equipped Tuscan style kitchen,dining room,living room and an amazing bamboo lined deck with table,umbrella and wrought iron daybed. Perfect for barbecue in summer,sun bathing brunches on weekends or simply relaxing.

Most importantly the apartment is a few statins away from Manhattan.

Bedstuy used to be known for its motto 'do or die' . Not anymore!!!! Now it is best known for its incredibly beautiful Brownstone. It was fearures recentlt in the Time Out magazine as ' one of the best neighbourhood ' of NYC.The strong community and abundant beautiful brownstone townhouses contribute to its growth and charm. New cafes,restaurants,bakeries ,boutique ,galleries nd wine bars are sprouting everywhere receiving much attention by Zagat, time out,NY magazines and blogs. A diverse mix of students,hipsters,artists,crative professionals,architects and attorneys of all races continue to move to the neighbourhood.

The area is serviced well by the A abd C train with commute times 15 mn to lowervManhattan and 30 mn to midtown.(times square).

Bedstuy was home to famous artists such as Notorious BIG,Lil Kim,Mos Def,Chris rock,,poet June Jordan and activist Hattie Carthan. Bedstuy streets are often represented in media : Spike lee movies, MIA music video.....

There is a strong sense of pride being part of Bedstuy and being its pioneers.

Why Nathalie chose Bedford-Stuyvesant

I simply fell in love with all the stain glasses and beautiful intricate wood frames.

Guestbook comments from the owner

avons passe de bons et chaleureux moments dans cet apartement coquet a l'image de nathalie,notre charmante hote. Les petits dejeuners sur la terrasse ensoleillee avec le chant des oiseaus en prime,un privilege au coeur de la grosse pomme. Nous avons adore le quartier de Bedford/stuyvesant car les gens sont souriants et aimables. le gospel le dimanche au coin de marcus garvey est un moment inoubliable. Tres rapidement sur Manhattan avec le metro express,nous preferons sejourner dans les quartiers des blocks partys, des brooklyn boogies du "do the right thing"....un quartier authentique.,

Charming apartment with stunning terrace in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

Nathalie was an excellent host, she made our stay very easy.

The apartment is perfect for 2 couples or a family. Located in the heart of Brooklyn there're lots of things to do around and it's very well linked to Manhattan and other neibourghoods.

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

La Maison Des Sirenes is an eclectic, bright, jewel in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Our family of 5 spent 4 nights here while we visited NYC and explored Brooklyn. It’s is short walk to the subway station and only about 30 minutes to midtown. We had plenty of room, plus there is an outdoor seating area with table and couch. Being in a quiet neighborhood was nice, lots of options for dinner, coffee, bagels, groceries or beverages nearby. Nathalie was very attentive and checked on us daily to make sure we had what we needed. Only downside was the noisy, creaky steam heater during the night. Took a little getting used to for the kids.

We had an amazing stay at Nathalie’s property in Brooklyn. It turned out that it was close to family

  • 5 of 5

Everything was quite cozy and just as described online. We never actually met Nathalie while we were there, but we left her a voicemail when the toilet kept clogging one day, and she immediately fixed it and left us a note upon our return. We lucked out because NYC received two large snowstorms two days before we arrived and then again right after we left. However, while we were there it was just cold and windy so we wore our layers and were fine. This property is very close to the subway and you can also get a LYFT from the city for about $36 or a taxi for about $10-15 more than that. When you have bags, I highly recommend using the LYFT to and from the airport or Manhattan. It’s just too difficult to navigate the subway and stairs etc. with luggage. There’s a great little Pizzaria around the corner that’s not too far if you don’t want to cook OR go out. There is a great Kolache shop several blocks away that is worth the walk. If you want to eat the best Spanish not Mexican or Tex-Mex food you have ever put in your mouth go to ABCCOCINA and you will dine like queens and kings. My nephew, Shea, is the head bartender, so if you go look him up and tell him where you are staying as he’s in the neighborhood and loves living there. Anyway, that restaurant is by far the best food I ate in NYC for 8 days!! It’s Tappas, which is small dish dining if you aren’t familiar with that term. The food is AMAZING AND THE SERVICE IS OVER THE TOP! Can’t say enough wonderful things about staying at Nathalie’s. We will definitely stay there upon a return trip to NYC area. Thanks so much Nathalie. Happy Easter! The McQueen Family

Perfect apartment for our stay in New York

  • 5 of 5

La Maison des Sirènes was a great place to stay for our five-night stay in New York. We are a group of four adults (mother and three grown children). I wasn't quite sure how the sleeping arrangement was going to work, but it was perfect for us. Nathalie already had everything set up when we arrived. She had three comfortable twin beds made up in the living area, and I had the queen bed. They were all comfortable with very nice bedding. The bathroom has an original claw foot tub. It doesn't have a proper shower, but does have a spray attachment, so it can be used to shower off. I personally loved the bathtub . The apartment was clean and everything met my expectations.

I want to stress how much we LOVE the neighborhood. The street where we stayed was charming and tree-lined with beautiful brownstones. The subway is a very nice walk (not far at all) and easy to find. It is about 20 minutes to Manhattan, but we didn't mind the commute at all and went into the city every day. We love the ambience of the Bed-Stuy area of Brooklyn. We had lovely dinners at the two restaurants recommended by Nathalie. We also found a nice Mexican restaurant, and there are delis on several corners. We loved exploring the area.

I would highly recommend staying La Maison Des Sirenes if you are looking for a very charming and comfortable apartment during your stay in New York.

Car: not necessary

This beautiful apartment is situated in the new upcoming neighbourhood in Brooklyn: Bedstuy. It is 15 mn away from Manhattan downtown and 30 mn away from Times Square. Bedstuy is the secret of New York and people are fighting right now to get a house here. A lot of artists, musicians, writer are moving in.

It is a couple of blocks from the main street Fulton where the subway can be found and all kind of stores(supermarket with organic products...) and restaurants (mainly west Indian).

Fortgreen with all its cafes and restaurants is within reach.

Everything that you need to spend a perfect vacation is here: subway (A and C), bus, restaurants on Tompkins, shops, beauty salons (manicure ,waxing....)

Other Activities: shopping
