The accommodations at the Weintraub's home were very comfortable. The air conditioner in the bedroom made a big difference by keeping the room comfortably cool while sleeping. The coffee maker in the morning was a nice addition. The upstairs area where we stayed gave us a private space that we enjoyed.
Julie and Neil were very friendly and accommodating and their kids were very sweet, we wish we could have spent more time with them all. The bedroom was well sized for a couple and the A/C came in handy for the hot weather. We stayed on the 3rd floor and it was very quiet and nice to have a bathroom to ourselves. It is a 10 minute walk to the subway and a couple of minutes to local grocery shops, restaurants and a laundramat. The subway took 40 minutes to get to Manhattan.
I enjoyed my three night stay and Julie and Neil's home. Julie was very welcoming when I arrived. The space was both accurately described and spotless. The bed was comfortable. The air conditioner in the bedroom was a real plus, since the temperature outside was over 80 each day. The neighborhood was quiet and clean and close to the subway and wonderful Prospect Park.
Hosts were very welcoming and had a good collection of local resources available. The room itself was accommodating and they had facilities for making coffee/tea and a small refrigerator.
They immediately installed an air conditioner when we arrived to cool down the room.
Julie and Neil and their boys are all nice, friendly people.
It is a nice private space and very quiet!
Julie and Neil were great hosts, making us feel welcome from the moment we entered their house. The room was as described. We're familiar with the neighborhood, so it was nice to visit the nearby restaurants and coffee shops again.
We arrived during an extremely cold weekend. Julie provided us with extra blankets and a space heater and alerted us before our trip to pack for the weather.
This was our first experience on Airbnb. The house of Julie and Neil was well located and close to metro station, groceries stores and restaurants. It was very quiet and cozy. The room is as is as seen in the photos. The private bathroom is a big plus!!.
The kids were very gentle, especially Benjamin with his elegant clothing. Hope you they have enjoyed Colombian candies.
Julie and Neil were always very attentive to our questions and concerns. We were very grateful for all your attention. Thanks for bringing us to pick up our rented car the last day.
We enjoyed Brooklyn and the cold and amazing New York.
Welcome to Colombia when you wish!!

About the Host, Julie & Neil
We are both NYC born and bred, but Julie lived in the Midwest for 12 years. We are raising our family in beautiful Kensington, Brooklyn - a mosaic of residents who hail from all across the globe.
We love hosting guest via AirBNB in our spacious Brooklyn house. It has been wonderful for our kids meeting folks from around the country and the world!

We love to travel, but with a family we don't get to go very far these days. Some favorite locales include Petra, Jordan; Dublin, Ireland; and Charleston, SC. Dream destinations include New Zealand, China and Costa Rica.
