Interaction with Guests
This room was designed for the lighthearted individuals, who enjoy life and seek something different. Staying here is almost like camping in the sky and not for the too serious. Thus far, all of my guest absolutely loved it and want to come back for more, see my reviews!
There will always be someone around for questions etc.
This location is the ideal spot to get a rich NYC experience. It's the first stop in Brooklyn on the L train, and within minutes you can be in either the East Village, Union Square, or Meatpacking District. There's also a ferry that'll take you to Manhattan via the East River, just a few minutes by foot from the place. Open-Air Farmer's Market with local produce every Saturday just across the street. A 7min walk to the waterfront "now open" weekend outdoor flea market, featuring a new "Outdoor Smorgasbar", selling local Beer, Wine & Sprits.
Conveniently located near Subways (metro), Buses, Taxi cabs & Boat Ferry (to Manhattan) all in walking distance. My lobby concierge can arrange assistance if a car or limo service is needed, driving you anywhere in NYC (including all airports) at a fair price.
Other Things to Note
There is a cute, "overly friendly" but NOT annoying - French Bulldog that resides within the main area of the apartment (not in the rental space) . He is not a bother at all, on the contrary..Most guest find him a real pleasure!
In my dealings with Airbnb, I found most people are very respectful to me and my home. For this reason, I do not charge a deposit at this time.
Thanks for looking, hope you can join us.
Smoking is permitted outdoors, on the terrace but NOT in the room. Pets and guest, not on the reservation are not allowed. This means, NO unauthorized parties, visitors, commercial shoots and NO pets are allowed. This is simply a really nice, very clean & safe place to sleep and experience Williamsburg NYC.
John won't be surprised to hear all the compliments again, but this time in German. All die begeisterten Kommentare sind vollständig gerechtfertigt, der Raum, die Sicht, die Lage und besonders alles was über den Gastgeber gesagt wird. Selbst für Menschen, die es sich nicht vorstellen können: zu Gast bei John zu sein ist wirklich fantastisch.
Magnificent views of Manhatten greet you as you step out of the lift into John's apartment. My 'skybox' was/is on the huge terrace that also has a productive garden of different vegetables. I got to sample some of these when I was invited to share a pasta one night. My skybox had everything you want and was very comfortable with ,of course, those magnificent views.
Good location in amongst the hipsters of Williamsburg with lots of cafes, restaurants etc for your amusement John, as a native of Brooklyn, is full of local knowledge and history. Thanks John!
Great location, great stay!
It's a very nice apartment with an incredible terrace, which has a stunning view of Manhattan skyline. John's very talkative, nice and helpful. Kevin (dog) is so cute and friendly which always make me missing my french dog from home. The neignbourhood is awesome with so many nice resturants around but in good price. The L line metro is just 5 mins walk. Want to live as a new yorker? John's place is a must try.
John was a fantastic host! We booked at the very last minute, and John couldn't have been more accomodating - the Skybox was perfect (and the 1am view over the East River was stunning). We spent part of the afternoon lounging on the balcony, and John even brought out some home-cooked sausages he bought from a local butcher! A great stay, and we would definitely book again when back in the area. And Kevin is a delight!
John and Danny are two gentlemen, the kind of guys you are happy to meet once in a life without missing the cute Kevin !. The view , the appartment, the outdoor space, the rooftop, the very well furnished home with all you could need...are amazing but more than the material things, you will find here kindness, friendship, open minded. It's a real pleasure to talk with John and Danny around a beer, a piece of cake cooked by john on the stunning terrace. You have to discover the trendy williamsburg neighborhood and brooklyn and the best place is certainly at the skybox !. This airbnb experience was amazing, you can go there with your eyes closed. You will feel here at home !
My second stay, this time in the Skybox just off their lovely patio with awesome view. I will return ! Friendly hosts— a relaxing home environment. Accommodations well above average. Totally clear instructions. I cannot think of any way to improve this tip top airbnb listing.
This place was the best. The room is small but very comfortable with your own AC, fan, tv, and music streaming speaker. The location is a short walk to many hipster bars and restaurants (not saying that's a bad thing). The room is nestled on a beautiful and well furnished patio, and the view from the windows of the room and the patio in general is INCREDIBLE. Although the room is located off the main living space it feels very private. John was very friendly but also professional about the whole thing. Great experience. Kevin the dog is also a very friendly and cute host, and I wanted to slip him in my suitcase and take him home.
