“Amazing”
Reviewed 7 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

What can I say this was an incredible find if you want somewhere special to stay with easy access to Manhattan and JFK Airport. The apartment was spotless and very well equipped. Sadly we didn't get to meet Carmia but her husband Joe gave us the guided tour of the apartment, The apartment is within easy reach of the subway J Line which connects to the Air Train so no need for expensive cabs and shuttles only down side to Chauncey subway is there are no lifts and elevators so you have to drag your luggage down 2 flights of stairs, There are two supermarkets within walking distance of the apartment so everything is to hand. If I ever visitd the Big Apple again I would definatly stay here.

“A great place to stay if you want to feel like a proper Brooklyn-ite/New Yorker!”

When we arrived late on Wednesday evening, both Carmia and Joe came out to meet us and showed us around the property - and couldn't have been more welcoming. The apartment immediately felt like home and after a long day's travel was exactly what we were hoping for. It was really well presented - clean, tidy and uncluttered - with some great pieces of art (painted by Joe) hanging in various rooms.
The garden, with its hammock, was a lovely place to relax in and although you could occasionally hear the subway, it was only a faint rumble in the distance.
Our two teenagers, who shared the downstairs bedroom, enjoyed the fact that this room was also the cinema room (with surround sound!), so they could watch whatever they could find on Netflix (mainly old episodes of Friends!) to their heart's content. We found it a great place to wind down after a long day's walking round NY.
As far as being in this part of Brooklyn was concerned, have no worries! We felt safe at all times, even when we got back late from Manhattan. Chauncey Street subway station is just round the corner from Moffat Street, on the J line, and we used it every day as our start/end point. (NOTE: If you're flying into JFK, the A Line links to the J Line at Broadway Junction, one stop away, so would be very easy to get to and from the airport. We used a free app from the App Store, set up by Zuti.co.uk, which was BRILLIANT - gave routes to anywhere on the subway. You could use it without being connected to wi-fi or phone signal, although if you wanted live updates you would have to have mobile data on - very expensive!
If we had any queries about the apartment or where to get things for breakfast/dinner, Joe and Carmia were always helpful - using the apartment's wi-fi to email questions was very useful!
All in all, a great place to stay if you want to feel like a proper Brooklyn-ite, and one we would wholeheartedly recommend.

We were welcomed by Carmia and Joe who had lots of suggestions/recommendations about the local area. The subway was at the end of the road with direct access to Manhattan. Local stores had all the supplies we needed. The apartment had everything you could want and was really comfortable along with plenty of space.
Carmia and Joe as hosts were brilliant and at the end of the phone if we had any questions.
I would love to revisit if I got the chance.

Reviewed 14 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

My family and I could not have stayed at a better place. The apartment was just as seen on the pictures. Very close to the subway - J line which takes you straight to JFK and to south Manhattan - The neighborhood is very good and there are two grocery stores around and many places to eat also. I definitively recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a nice place to stay while in NYC.

“Great stay in Brooklyn”
Reviewed 15 December 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The Mid-Century Garden Paradise was an excellent choice for our weekend trip to NYC. It was exactly as pictured and Carmia was very accommodating to our early arrival and late departure times; and also made the entire rental process very easy with good communication before and during our stay. The apartment was immaculate; my nephew commented that "this looks right out of HGTV." It's very close to the J-Z subway which takes you anywhere you need to go. I highly recommend this property.
