About this listing
We are musicians, performers and world travelers and are blessed to have combined these passions in a beautiful, cozy, rooftop apt in a Brooklyn brownstone (4 floor walk up, keeps you in shape!!). WE LOVE our place and so does everyone that walks in the door. We are sure you will love it too!
We are located in Fort Greene/Clinton Hill, a beautiful neighborhood of brownstones, tree lined streets, delicious restaurants, and a relaxed, nice vibe. Its' perfect for wanting to visit the city but still being able to get away from it when you come home. Fort Greene park, Brooklyn Museum and Prospect Park are all very close. We are a 15 min walk to almost every train to Manhattan and a 15 min cab ride from lower Manhattan. And again, did I mention delicious restaurants right within blocks!
Being from California, light and outdoor space is essential, this place has both! Sky lights, big windows and colorful walls which give the apt a warm yet light glow. And then there's the rooftop, which sold us on the place...Check out the pics for our impeccable views of the Manhattan skyline, perfect for an intimate dinner or bbq. Also on the roof is our garden, we do ask you care for it while you're here but pls also eat from it!
The apt sleeps 2-4 comfortably (bedroom plus futon in the living room). Citibikes ((website hidden)) has a bike station just across the street! Bikes are a fantastic way for getting around Brooklyn. And lastly, we have two black cats who come with the stay! Don't worry, they are very low maintenance, but one does like to sleep in the bedroom so you'll have company there!
We know you will enjoy your stay in our humble, yet beautiful abode.
Smoking only allowed on roof.
Pls just water our garden and take care of our cats.
Pls leave our apt in the condition you found it!
Although we never met Matt and Renee, they were great hosts. The apartment was amazing and everything was as described. No problems with check-in or check-out and their flexibility was appreciated.
Renee and Matt are great hosts and it's so unfortunate that I didn't get to stay in their amazing looking apartment. Our daughter came down with a fever on the day we were supposed to leave for New York and we were forced to cancel our trip. Renee and Matt were easily contactable and very understanding. We sincerely hope that we can re-schedule our trip shortly. Many thanks!!
This place was great! Incredible location and the rooftop was amazing! Renée was really helpful on letting us know how to get in the apartment and also gave great recommendations of things to do in the city. Apartment was exactly how it was described online. I would definitely recommend to anyone coming to stay in NYC for a weekend!
1 of the best host ever. Renee was very sweet & welcoming. She understood the nature of our purpose very well. Our film shoot went well at her apartment. :)
The apartment is nice and comfortable and the listing represents it fairly. Renée was very accommodating when I needed a late check out. There are two cats so bring a lint brush if you have clothes that might need post cat maintenance. This was my first Air BnB stay and it is a unique way to travel. For me the location was most compelling because of the proximity to some friends who live in the same block that I had planned to spend time with.
We had such a wonderful time staying in their home! It was cozy and lovely and we loved the kitties! The location is great because it's right next to everything we needed such as food and coffee and transportation! She was such a great host and I'm glad I got to meet her before she left town! Such a lovely lady! I would totally stay there again and I would totally recommend the experience!
I stayed at this place with 3 other people and it was great. Renée was always really fast responding to any questions I had and the communication was great at all times.
The apartment is nice and comfortable and the location is really convenient and safe. I had never stayed in Brooklyn before, but I definitely like it better than Manhattan as it's quieter and still just minutes away on the metro. I loved the unique decoration and the rooftop with great views of the Empire State Building.
The only requirement to enjoy your stay here is that you preferably like cats, or at least don't mind them.
