An absolutely beautiful apartment in a lovely neighbourhood in Brooklyn. A short subway ride to Manhattan and several tourist attractions. An ideal space for two people visiting the city.

Eka's place is absolutely beautiful. High quality linens and nicely equipped kitchen, and the location is nice near the park. I highly recommend it and plan to be back again.

Eka is a very thoughtful host. Her place provided all our needs. The apartment is very clean, super comfortable bed, well lite, spacious, and quiet. It’s also easy access to the subway station so we were able to get anywhere. Wish we’d had stayed longer... so much to see and do! Highly recommend Eka and her place!!

The place was perfectly located in Greenpoint, near to parks, restaurants, cafes and stores. It's a great home base to explore Brooklyn and close to the subway if you're looking to see Manhattan. Check in and out was simple and Eka was very accommodating. Highly recommend this spot!

This apartment (and Eka) were a highlight to a recent Anniversary trip we had! The apartment was impeccable, absolutely gorgeous and with so much thought in regards to comfort. There is everything you need, and then some! The bed and linens were dreamy, kitchen well stocked and thought out and she even included some basics in the fridge! The AC was a nice bonus in the heat too. I'm convinced Eka was a hotelier in another life. Her attention was incredible and was quick to help with anything. The neighborhood was fun and the trek into the city was reasonable, not fast but reasonable. Definitely check out Mo's Doughs and Calexico just up the street. We'd absolutely stay at this property again in the future! Thank you, Eka, for everything!
