THANK YOU.
Also an area to eat, and or watch a little T.V.! Love my painting from the Caribbean-it brings in color and life.
Roc's place is very nice and comfortable. The surrounding area is full of restaurant, stores, laundries and all the amenities that you could need.
Position is very strategic. The subway is very close and you can go to Manhattan directly in just 25 minutes.
Last, but not least, Prospect Park is an amazing place for jogging or to find some relax.
Roc is a great person. He is always ready to help you for everything.
I really felt at home.
If I will come back to NYC, Roc's place will be my choice again.
Many thanks to Roc! The posting was accurate. He did a great job of communicating, too. We were so thankful to use his air conditioning! The neighbors in his building were friendly and helpful opening the door while I had my son in my arms.
Many choices of restaurants and subways nearby. And Prospect Park is gorgeous! Our son (2 1/2 years old) had the BEST time in the Splash Pad: (website hidden)
Unfortunately I didn't get to meet Roc but he made sure that my sister and I had always someone to talk to. His apartment is cozy but planty of room for two. It was clean and had everything we needed. 40 minutes from Manhattan but easy to get to with the metra.
Roc was a great host!
Piccolo appartamento nel cuore pulsante di Brooklyn (zona sud) Accoglienza perfetta di Roc, gentile e attento, l'appartamento corrisponde alla descrizione, il quartiere ha l'aspetto un po' inquietante ma in fin dei conti sembrerebbe tranquillo.... La metro pakside avenue è a 5min a piedi! Dalla metro in 20min si è a Times square! L'aeroporto JFK però è mal servito! Meglio prendere un taxi! Ci tornerei
Roc was very welcoming, his place was exactly as describe and he has an exceptionally clean apt. His street is fairly quiet, with a lot more action on the Main Street flatbush ave. He had great recommendations for places to eat. If you want a true Brooklyn experience this is a great place to stay. He is super nice, and was a pleasure to rent from.
Roc, es un gran anfitrión, en todo momento estuvo y esta a disposición de los invitados, se ofrece como un guía de la ciudad y en todo momento ayuda al huésped . Sobre el departamento todo excelente. Gracias Roc, lo recomendamos.
Reasonably priced, great location for us. Roc was a very conscientious host.

About the Host, Roc
I am a Performing and Visual Artist, born in the Caribbean and raised in Brooklyn. I love all people; I don't care of your ethnic background, religion, gender or sexual orientation- hope that the person(s) that stays at my place, has similar views. All that I ask is.. respect my property, keep an open line of communication, and treat it how you would like a person to treat your place. I love to keep things simple, and I love to get to the core of something that appears to be ugly, in order to find the true beauty. They call me the Frugal King- always in search of a great bargain: meals, plane tickets, art galleries, music events, etc... I have a hobby of making homemade cheesecake, that is now blooming into a business. Hope this is helpful.
