Guestbook comments from the owner

The location was perfect for us and found the apartment very comfortable, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Many thanks for your help with the couple of questions we had - it was the first time I had every booked accommodation outside of New Zealand and was very pleased with the out-come.

Many, many thanks for making our complete holiday experience in New York so wonderful.

Apartment great - has everything you need - located across the road from supermarket

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was great - clean and very functional - loads of storage space. Excellent value for money.

The only down side was the daily commute we needed to make into Manhattan. Got very tiring towards the end of our stay. We stayed there because we were attending a 9day course which covered 2 weekends. The service at the Metro is usually disrupted for repairs at weekends - which made the journeys even longer. Not a negative about the apartment, but something you should be aware of.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the apartment. Sorry about the MTA though -- they have been choosing to do repairs on the weekend rather than overnight. During the week it should only take about 25 minutes, but it is annoying when there is an unexpected re-routing on the weekend.

My Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

For two consecutive years I made Mr. Melzer's second floor apartment my homeaway from home. It's been a year since I last stayed but I have all the intentions in the world to stay with him again. I presently travel to NYC but I stay at my moms apartment since she has been placed in a Nursing Home because of her Leukemia condition. Mr. Melzer took care of me as family and I am indebited to him forever. The accomodations are five star.

Great place to stay while in NYC!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, adult daughter, and I stayed four nights at this property in October, 2015. The experience could not have been more pleasant -- and certainly more appealing and enjoyable than finding a hotel in Brooklyn.

Communication: From the time I first communicated with Roger to make reservations until the time we left after our stay, he was most gracious and prompt in his communication, both by e-mail and phone. This helped a lot when it came to making plans, meeting him when we got there, and expediting our departure.

Cost: Roger's pricing is reasonable and did not include extra or additional charges that I saw other property owners tack on.

Location: The building we stayed in is right across the street from an excellent grocery store and a Walgreens. It is also near coffee shops, various other shops, Prospect Park, and mass transit. The location is a pleasant residential area and quiet.

Accommodations: The apartment was kept very clean and well stocked with extra towels, blankets, pillows, and kitchen staple items in the 'fridge, coffee, filters, etc. The furniture was all in good condition and the beds and couch were quite comfortable. The apartment included a newish TV with cable service and WiFi access that worked well and was quick to setup.

From now on, whenever we go to Brooklyn to visit my son and daughter-in-law, I'll look forward to staying at this property of Roger's.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean, well equipped and comfortable. The location is excellent, with Prospect Park a short walk away. Everything you need is conveniently within 10 mins walk - subway, cafes, bars. Roger was an excellent host, responding quickly and helping with a slight change in travel plans by providing a fold down bed at the last minute. I will make this my first choice when visiting NYC in the future.

We're sold on Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

After staying in too many overpriced dumps in Manhattan, we finally made the decision to try Brooklyn. And it certainly was the right decision. Terrace Tower in Park Slope is a very well maintained building with spacious, generously supplied apartments in a friendly neighbourhood. All the one bedrooms were booked when we contacted Roger so he offered us his remaining 2 bedroom unit at a discounted price. At the end of happy days in either Brooklyn or Manhattan, we came "home" and these apartments feel like home. Our kitchen was well stocked with all types of cooking utensils and even butter, oil, spices and jam. Ample towels, soap, laundry detergent (for the on-site laundry) and shampoo. Roger and staff are present, helpful and friendly. We've never experienced such service, respect and pride in rental accommodations for tourists.

Terrace Tower is just a few blocks from an entrance to the subway to Brooklyn and Manhattan and walking distance to grocery stores and restaurants. We highly recommend these apartments and we know we'll be returning, too.

Owner's Response: Thank you. It was a pleasure to have you and hope we see you again. We try hard to make this a real "home away" experience and we are very proud of our product and of the neighborhood that we are fortunate enough to be in. The location is convenient to mass transit, and also to all the wonderful cultural landmarks and activities that Brooklyn itself has to offer. Roger
