Did you know that NYC is ranked the most expensive vacation destination in the country? When you consider the cost of a tiny 4-star hotel room, a core food item, an alcoholic drink and a taxi ride, the cost really add up!

Doma Real Estate (@DomaBklynRE on Twitter/) can help you off-set some of those costs with our fully furnished apartments for daily, weekly or monthly accommodations on one of the prettiest tree-lined blocks in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, conveniently located approximately 10 minutes from the express A subway train at Nostrand Avenue that takes you to downtown Manhattan in approximately 15 minutes. THE NEW BARCLAYS CENTER IS JUST THREE SUBWAY STOPS AWAY ON THE LOCAL C TRAIN!

An ideal option for business travelers, academics and anyone who doesn't want to pay $300+ a night for a tiny room!

The apartments are located in a 4-story walk-up, Legal, Class C, 3-family Brooklyn brownstone. They are fully furnished with loads of amenities. Unit #2 is on the 3rd floor and sleeps 2 comfortably and can fit a 3rd person with the fold-out cot or the couch. PLEASE REVIEW THE PICTURES CAREFULLY.

Southern exposure, windowed air conditioner and ceiling fan in each room, a queen size bed + twin size cot, linens, towels, cable HD TV, wireless high-speed cable internet, full kitchen with granite countertops and IN UNIT WASHER & DRYER, renovated bathroom with brand new pressure-assist toilet, marble sink and skylight, ample closet space, living area w/small dining area, and work desk in the bedroom.

There is parking available on the street and it's FREE. Please click on the Street View link to see the parking layout.

Need a car while you're here? Now you can rent a ZipCar for an hour, a day or a week through Doma Real Estate, LLC and save on the application fee and annual fee!!!!! Information will be provided after you book.

Don't want to deal with a taxi driver not knowing how to get to the apartment or not sure if you're paying the right fare? You can reserve a pickup from my neighbor in his luxury BMW. Just inquire after you book for details!
House rules

Just be mindful of the noise, there are other’s living in the building, staying right below you, and it’s not very soundproof. :-) Lock up when you leave, and please clean up after yourself. And, please, please recycle appropriately. That’s all! Oh, and don’t leave food out for the critters! They won’t eat the poison if you do -- the entire building is exterminated the 1st Saturday of every month.

My ‘Hood:

Groceries: Super Food Town
I shop at Super Food Town for most of my groceries. I like the fresh baked breads, bake on-site! The olive cart, the fresh produce. However, when the produce is not looking so great here, I go across Fulton Street to the small produce store. They always have great looking produce! I also like the selection of imported beers at the grocery store. Other than that, it’s pretty much your standard grocery fare.

To get there, just exit the building, turn right, walk to Tompkins Avenue, turn right. Walk to Fulton Street. Look to the right, you will see a large brick building with a sign that reads, Super Food Town.

There are also small stores where I purchase milk or beer, when I don’t want to walk to Super Food Town. One is located at the corner of Jefferson Avenue and Tompkins Avenue, and one is located at the corner of Tompkins Avenue and Hancock Avenue. I usually walk a little further for the one @ Tompkins and Hancock because it’s cleaner. :-)

Coffee: Common Grounds, Daliah’s Cafe, Paris Dakar
I make a great cappaccino in my kitchen downstairs on my Miele coffee system. My only complaint is it doesn’t get the espresso hot enough on it’s own. You have to add steamed milk for the drink to be super hot. -_-
However, when I must grab a cup on the go, I either go to Commond Grounds, which is around the corner at 376 Tompkins Avenue, Dahlia’s cafe, which is on the way to the subway station at 449 Nostrand Avenue , or Le Paris Daka at 518 Nostrand Avenue, which is across the street, sort of, from Dahlia’s.

For Comon Grounds, exit the building, turn right and walk to Tompkins Avenue. Turn left, walk towards Putnam Avenue. Common Grounds is on Tompkins Avenue between Jefferson Avenue and Putnam Avenue, on the left side of the street.

For Daliah’s Cafe, exit the building, turn left and walk to Nostrand Avenue. Turn left, walk towards Fulton Street. Dahlia’s Cafe is on Nostrand Avenue on the left side of the street.

For Paris Dakkar, it is also on Nostrand Avenue, across the street and one block ahead of Daliah’s Cafe.

This is important because I don’t go a day without it -- WINE!

There is a cute little wine shop around the corner on Putnam Avenue called Bed-Vyne. The address is 370 Tompkins Avenue, but the entrance is on Putnam Avenue -- ah ha!

Just turn right when you exit the building, walk to Tompkins Avenue, turn left. Walk to Putnam, cross Putnam Avenue, turn left and the store is on the right side a few feet up. You have to look for it! It’s tiny, but cute and close!

If I’m getting off the subway, I’ll walk to Breukelen Cellars at 504 Nostrand Avenue. Just cross Fulton Street and walk north on Nostrand Avenue, when you exit the subway. It’s near the corner of Halsey Street on the left side of the street. Then you can just head further North to Jefferson Avenue, make a right, and you’re on your way home. With a nice bottle of wine!!! ;-)

This is a bit tough because I don’t eat out often, but when I must I am known to call in an order and go pick it up at The Hot House, which is around the corner at 415 Tompkins Avenue at the corner of Hancock Street. You can dine there, but it’s tiny!

When I’m in the mood I go to David’s Brisket House & Deli at 533 Nostrand Avenue. They make a killer corn beef sandwich on rye with mustard. That, with a Hoegaarden or two -- DONE! When you get off the subway, walk South on Nostrand Avenue, it’s just one block away. Not much of a detour before you head home, and sooooo worth it.

Abu’s Homestyle Bakery makes great cakes, but I love there mini pies! If you’re in the mood for something sweet, to to 1184 Fulton Street. Just head west on Fulton Street toward Bedford Avenue. It’s on the right side of the street, just passed Bedford Avenue.

Tastee Pattee Bakery is my default. If I’m home and not cooking that evening, I usually picked up dinner from here. If you aren’t familiar with Jamaican cooking, I really urge you to try it. It’s soooooo good. Just walk east on Fulton Street to go home, stop in here before you reach Marcy Avenue. Make a left on Marcy Avenue, walk to Jefferson Avenue, make a right, and you’re almost home!

Okay, no I did not forget! PIZZA! The best in the neighborhood, IMHO, is from Not Just Pizza at 1286 Fulton Street. A few buildings away from the subway stop. I really don’t know why this pizza is so good! I think it’s the sauce. They don’t deliver, but that’s okay; it’s worth the walk. And if you stop on your way home, even better!

There is plenty of other stuff in the neighborhood, I just thought I’d share with you my day-to-day spots. So get out and explore while you’re here!

Thanks again for choosing to stay with me and don’t forget to feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have. I can easily be reached via text or e-mail. You can also try knocking on my door downstairs.

Welcome, again and I hope you enjoy your stay.

The apartment was bigger than I expected. It is located in a nice neighborhood. You can be pretty cheap food in the eateries nearby. The metro is about 10 minutes walk and you are so in Manhattan. The apartment provides the spacious living room and separate bedroom you much rest after visiting Manhattan. You are not bothered by the heat because air conditioners are available. They are not silent air conditioners. The hostess is a warm friendly lady who instantly gives your answer once you enailt or texted or call that gave a lot of confidence. . We enjoyed our visit here in New York.

Wir hatten einen sehr angenehmen Aufenthalt in der Ferienwohnung. Wir waren mit 2 Erwachsenen und 2 Kindern (7 und 9 Jahre) unterwegs und haben uns die Betten geteilt. Für 4 Personen ist die Wohnung gerade so ausreichend. Es ist alles vorhanden, was man braucht (Föhn, Toaster, Waschmaschine/Trockner,...). Die Wohnung ist angenehm sauber. Der Kontakt mit Reneé war immer herzlich und hilfsbereit und sie hat sofort auf unsere Anfragen reagiert. Wir würden beim nächsten Besuch in Brooklyn wieder hierher kommen.

Bette late than never ;) We stayed with Renée the week before christmas 2012. Even though Renée had to be out of town, she managed everything really well. The apartment is more than ok. kitchen/bathroom equipment, too. The beds are comfy. washing machine was really useful, the area is fine, it does take some time to get to manhattan, but the are fast trains...But you will annoy a neighbor's dog when you open/close the windows ;) We had a lovely time, a place I would also stay longer than just a week.

A very good stay!
Nice and clean, not as beautiful as on the pictures, but everything worked.
Good bed, good shower, close to the A line (Manhattan) a little less close to the G line (Williamsburg and Queens). When i'm back in New York i'll probably stay here again. And, oh ya, go to the Vodou Bar!
