Our stay was amazing. Brandon was extremely accommodating making sure we had access to the house as soon as we landed so that we weren’t pulling our luggage through the city. The instructions left for the house were clear and he even gave us a list of several nearby restaurants. The house was clean, we had (10) house guests total and there was more that enough space and bathrooms (2) 1/2. The house has (3) King beds and (2) queen. The first room is A King room on the main level with a 1/2 bathroom. There are (4) rooms upstairs - the master is a King room and has a full bathroom. There is another full bathroom in the center hallway. We had plenty of towels and linens. The house is huge, well kept and great for large parties. The kitchen has 95% of what you need depending on if your cooking - you’ll need foil, and your own seasoning if you use more than the basics - appliances are high end and work great - the backyard is spacious they have a grill and patio furniture. The living room furniture is new the couch doesn’t have any damage and is extremely comfortable- there is a sofa sleeper if needed. The house is about a 5 minute walk from the subway- if your new you will need to download the subway app. We truly enjoyed our stay, this property comes highly recommended. We did not experience and loud noise or parties at all

Large house that sleeps 7 people comfortably, house was clean and tidy. J train is within easy access but a 30-45 min ride from Manhattan including the walk to the subway. We were kept awake throughout the weekend by the party that goes on until 3:00am, the area itself is rundown and not ideal after dark. The house is “tired” and needs some attention, plug sockets are still not working. Overall we enjoyed our stay but wouldn’t return to Bushwick for our holiday. Had no issues with the owner, contact was great from Brendan.

The apartment was a good size for 9 adults. 4 double beds and 2 singles in 5 bedrooms. The kitchen has plenty of appliances and utensils. Air conditioning in every room, which was needed as August is very hot and humid. All told it was a good property and we would recommend it. A few issues you may want to take into account. Some of the sockets in the bedrooms don't work and although we did contact the owner re this he didn't get back to us. Two of the bedrooms have the air conditioning units right behind your head. It's quite a way out of manhatten, probably 45 mins including a 10 min walk to the subway. There is a "rave or Nightclub" call it what you will from Friday to Sunday. If you are in the back two rooms you will struggle to sleep until it finishes at 3.00 am! Not the owners fault but worth knowing. Definitely go to Dumbo. You get the "iconic" pictures of Brooklyn bridge, plenty of restaurants and great views of Manhatten. New York is an amazing place and despite a couple of issues we would still recommend it.

Overall we had a very good experience at the Bushwick home. The property was close to the J train and grocery store, so very convenient. We were 3 families, our selves with two little kids, my aunt and her husband, my cousin, his fiance and her son. So the bedroom situation worked out great. Enjoyed the large dining table for meals and hanging out to catch up. The window air conditioning units did their job keeping the rooms cool and comfortable.
The only things we wish we knew a bit more about before hand was parking. We know are not the norm having rental cars however we took several trips to Yonkers to visit family and we drove down to Maryland after our stay in NYC. Anyway, we had to do some figuring out of the various street signs on where and when you can park, and the double parking most everyone does during the 1-1/2 trash truck pick up time. We're figured it out and it wasn't a big deal, but a blurb on the site or checkin materials would have been great.
A previous guest mentioned the couch. It's old and comfortable, but definitely bottomed out in some areas so you had to adjust your seating. The top layer was coming off a lot and leaving a mess of the floor, so we had to sweep. But again, not a big deal.
The last thing was a couple building down was a very loud party until past 1am on a Monday night. Albeit it was summer so we weren't too upset, but having a note on what guests can do in that case would be great too. Friday night and Saturday night were loud too, with outdoor music on stoops until almost 230am. But again we figured it was summer and the NYPD website says they respond to noise complaints in 8 hours, which seemed like too long too wait, so we never called or submitted an online complaint. However our guest host said we could have called 311. Just something to add to the checkin instructions.
Again overall a great place, good location, very NYC vibe outside.

For the property location, this property was decent. Needed minor repairs but very suitable. The size of each of the rooms were great and the living areas were awesome. Some of the furnishings need to be replaced especially the couch.
