We were so warmly welcomed by Francis, who met us at the apartment upon arrival. We arrived hungry and needing a bite to eat, however, it was 11:30pm and most places in the area were closed. Francis so kindly drove us to an amazing Mexican place near by which was delicious! His generosity didn't end there, with him going out of his way to provide us with an ironing board and iron, and driving us (again) to a meeting when our taxi was running late. The apartment is beautiful, spacious and has lovely natural light. We were a party of four and were comfortably accommodated with the two queen size beds. Plus there is the second sofa-bed, should we have needed it. The apartment is tastefully equipped with all of the essentials and were serenaded with Francis' incredible music which he records in his studio downstairs. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

We stayed at Francis' place during New Years 2017. It's quite spacious and the connection into Manhattan is good with the nearby J train. In the neighborhood there are several grocery stores and supermarkets but it is hard to find a nice restaurant to eat. The place is quite old so upstairs neighbors where good to hear, but when we asked Francis to ask them to be more quite he immediately took action. In our opinion the beds are quite hard and at night the light from outside was quite bright so our kids had trouble sleeping. There is also an other subway station quite close if you want to take the C line into manhattan. What was a nice touch was the radio with music from Francis we liked it.

This was perfect for us. Francis was a wonderful host. I'm looking forward to checking out his music. His 5 year old wanted to say goodbye to us which was so sweet. It was a very big apartment and was very quiet. Most surprising was being woken up by a rooster! It was really neat. We hope to stay here again in the spring. I can't recommend this place enough!!!

We spent three nights at Francis apartment. My friend and I brought our three teenage children along with us on the trip. All of us were welcomed graciously at Francis spacious, beautiful residence. Being surrounded by his music was an extra bonus that we all enjoyed enormously. Its not common that you can meet in person a professional musician who can express himself in so many languages, my favorite douala. If you would like to meet an extraordinary soul take a chance and visit this place.

A friend and I stayed at Francis' place for 5 days and it was great. The apartment is beautiful with wooden floors, generous space for hanging clothes and nice touches like lots of lamps for cosy, homely lighting. The sitting area is comfortable, and has nice touches like a great Bose sound system. Good shower, 2 AC units. The bed in the main room was comfortable. The second bed isn't the most comfortable but it was fine! The area is residential and feels safe; there are lots of families around. I felt safe walking around at night. There are three different subway stations all within walking distance. Francis was always easy to get hold of, and even leant one of us his bike to go and get pizza. I didn't have any issues with noise from Francis' studio, I could barely hear it. The flat shares an entrance with Francis' apartment and I was fine with this.

We had a wonderful stay in Brooklyn at Francis' townhouse apartment. The area was quiet and friendly, and convenient for parking, walking and subway. The space was bright and open and nicely finished. Francis was a great host, he was very responsive and kind. We would definitely stay here again on our next trip to NYC!
