This was the greatest experience!! We arrived earlier than our 2pm check-in time but Robert was SO helpful!! He arraigned for a car to pick us up right in front of the apartment & take us to the cutest little restaurant for breakfast. The space was EXACTLY what it looks like online & even BETTER in person!! The views are absolutely breathtaking & I felt like a queen taking a bath....lol! Robert is awesome!! He came over the night we got there & told me about the neighborhood, the best way to get to the places we wanted to see & even personally made reservations for us!! I couldn't have asked for more......(other than maybe a personal assistant, which he basically was!!) The subway station is just a few blocks away (walking distance) and will take you anywhere you want to go in the city. It is a very safe neighborhood & I never felt unsafe, even walking at midnight by myself. The Doorman George is a hoot :) One night when we came home, he had the BEST doughnuts waiting for us! If we ever needed anything, he was always right there & more than happy to give us any help we needed. You will absolutely LOVE staying here & I'm definitely coming back to this city & when I do.....I'm staying HERE!!!
Robert was very hospitable from the minute we arrived. Our flight arrived at 12:10am and Robert was there to greet us at the apartment at 1:00am and to show us around. The apartment looks just like the pictures and just like everyone else mentioned, the subway was just a short distance away. The apartment was clean and the views were fantastic. The neighborhood is safe and in the middle of a diverse culture. Robert was always available to answer any questions we had. He helped with making some suggestions on where to eat and what to do. He truly is an amazing host, it was like having a tourist guide near by. Robert even offered to send a balloon if we got lost on the subway. Thank you for making our vacation stay in New York a memorable one.

fantastisch appartement met een geweldig uitzicht over Manhattan. Alles aanwezig wat je nodig hebt. Beetje uit de buurt van toeristische bezienswaardigheden maar makkelijk met metro te bereiken. Robert was er niet maar heeft alkes goed geregeld. Zonder meer geweldige aanrader
We lived in Robets place for 8 days and had a great time. Robert is a great host, very kind and helpfull. Easy to come in contact with and helpfull with advice. His apartment is lovely and the view over Manhattans skyline is amazing. We can only recommend Roberts apartment!
Robert er en super vært. Der var ingen tidspunkter hvor vi følte at vi ikke kunne komme til ham med spørgsmål. Fuldt ud i trygge hænder. Boligen var som beskrevet - og den fantastiske udsigt kan ikke beskrives på billeder. Fuldt ud anbefalelsesværdig.
I stayed at Robert's superb penthouse for 8 nights with my family (5 guests in total). The place was wonderful, very spacious, and with stunning views over the Manhattan skyline from the roof terrace.
Also, the penthouse came with all the amenities that are needed, we felt like being at home from the moment George the doorman showed us around and handed over the keys.
Transport links are fantastic, just ~5min walk to the nearest subway station (59th Street) which gets you into Manhattan in ~30min on the express service. Also, the area was safe, had supermarkets in walking distance and a variety of international eateries to choose from.
Robert was straight forward to communicate with before and during our stay, helped us with questions we had and came along to personally greet us the day before we left which added a nice personal touch to our holiday.
We can only recommend this wonderful place as it offers everything you need for an unforgettable stay in NYC, and these sunsets on the terrace are just what you need to relax after a long day of sightseeing. Truly unforgettable.
Thanks again for everything on behalf of everyone that was part of the travelling experience.

What can I say about Robert's extraordinary apartment that hasn't already been said by others who have stayed here? We (2 adults and a 2 year old) stayed for a month in Robert's apartment and it was perfect! The apartment itself is huge, covering two stories. We didn't hear a single peep out of the neighbours. Just what someone with a child wants! The balcony off the ensuite upstairs is large with amazing views across Brooklyn in one direction and the East River to lower Manhattan in the other direction. Every morning we sat at the dining table to eat our breakfast and marveled at the view: the Statue of Liberty and Freedom Tower perfectly framed in the window!
Robert was incredibly friendly and went over-and-above to ensure our stay was perfect. Whether it was replacing the water kettle to installing safety gates at the top and bottom of the stairs, he had our comfort in mind all the time. He was incredibly easy to communicate with and responded quickly to all my messages. He even periodically checked in with us via Airbnb to make sure we were happy and to see if we needed anything. When we did - the wifi stopped working - he was on to it immediately.
The apartment itself is in a very multicultural area of Brooklyn. It made for some fantastic dining experiences for us - German, Cuban, Columbian, Thai and Indian are just a few of the restaurants we tried near the apartment. The subway station is only a few blocks away and it is a safe and quick walk, day or night. The station services both an express train (the N, 4 stops to Manhattan) and the local (the R, which gets you to downtown Brooklyn in half a dozen stops).
In many ways the thing we appreciated most about Robert and choosing his apartment was the box full of toys he left for our daughter. It was thoughtful and she loved it! He is also amazingly kind and gentle with children! And he shares the same birthday as our daughter, albeit with a few years between them!
I join with the chorus of praise for Robert and his apartment. I can't recommend it enough.

About the Host, Robert
I am a spirited entrepreneur. I have been in Real Estate since i bought my first Co-Op at age of 18 along the way i have acquired numerous residential and commercial properties throughout the US mostly in NY AZ and FL most of which i still own. In 1992 I left the family Auto Business and headed for Wall Street fast forward to current day and you'll find me sitting behind my 9 computer screens shouting out day trades to subscribers of my new business venture called MarketGauge. All my properties are pristine, well appointed and very livable. I was Born in Brooklyn have had family here 3 generations in Bay Ridge. Family has been in the Auto Industry since 1930's. Bay Ridge has a very colorful landscape which was mostly populated by Italians Scandanavians and Irish when i was growing up. Today the Area has flourished and ranks as the # 4 top places to live in all the 5 Burroughs combined it out ranks Park slope and Brooklyn Heights by double digits ! We have many parks bike paths, great schools shopping and every ethnicity of food to eat you can imagine. I travel a lot i like to travel casual and hate disappointment when staying at new places. having to pay ridiculous amounts of money for nice digs to stay in is more stressful than the travel and takes some of the fun away. Offering a blow your socks off place for reasonable money is my objective. See For Yourself !!
