My apartment is located on of the most central streets in the Ft. Greene/Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn. It is spacious, with hard wood floors, artwork, wifi, cable, and a view of the common shared area garden. The room you will be staying in has a full sized futon, air conditioning and I will provide fresh sheets and towels for your use. The room can comfortably accommodate up to 2 people.
Ft. Greene/Clinton Hill is a great area; filled with quiet, tree lined streets and amazing restaurants and bars all within walking distance. I am within two blocks of the C train line that can get you to Soho/Tribeca within 15mins. Just a short walk further and you are at the Atlantic Ave-Barclays Terminal which is the 3rd largest subway hub in the city. For basketball fans and music lovers we are 5 mins away from Brooklyn's newest attraction Barclays Center. Brooklyn Nets basketball and Jay-Z, Coldplay and Rihanna are at your fingertips.
My place is always neat and organized. As a traveler myself I understand the importance of spending time in a welcoming and warm environment when on the road and I am glad to provide that.
I am quite social and active and can provide as much input to your time in NYC as is wanted. I have lived in NYC all my life and I know NYC extremely well.
I am very easy going. I just ask for the following:
1. be neat - that includes the room, the bathroom and the kitchen.
2. generally let me know in advance arrival and departure as I am usually coordinating other visits.
3. Please clear out all trash upon leaving/departing after your stay.
see..not much to be worried about. Just the basics that ensures everyone has a pleasant time.
Philip was great. Very friendly and lovely house and neighborhood. He made me right at home.
I had a great time at this wonderful apartment. very modern, clean and keeps you warm in the winter. philip is a decent guy, very easy going, friendly and helpful. I will definitely consider it again when I need a stay in that part of town.
This is a great space with a warm and friendly host. Philip is quite knowledgeable and gave lots of helpful pointers for the neighborhood, and Brooklyn in general. The house is cozy, with lots of sunlight, and a beautiful neighborhood. Very close to subways and restaurants.
I had such a great time at Philip's house ! The area is so cool; restaurants, cool bars, and it is very quiet !
Philip was very helpful to me, always available and very kind. I was very happy to talk with him, best guide in NYC ever :)
Philip was a very nice host and the apartment was very convenient
and very comfortable.
Philip is very kind and nice. Philip's house was so clean and fragrant all day. Brooklyn is a quiet and peaceful village. And very good accessibility to go to New York. If I visit NYC again I want to stay Philip's house again!
Phillip is an awesome host. His apartment looks exactly how it does in the pics provided. It is very clean and neat. It is cool looking apartment that shows Phillip's interests and personality.
Phillip himself is a cool guy and is very respectful. He is nice to converse with if you want to talk with him and will leave you alone if you're tired and just want to stay in your room. He will answer questions about nyc in detail and will make an effort to help if needed. I personally found New York not to difficult to navigate, but he said something about going to the subway station with a previous guest to help him get a metro card.
I personally have nothing negative to say about my experience. I enjoyed it very much.
