You'll have exclusive access to the full apartment. It is private, meaning that I won't come into the apartment during your stay unless I ask you first, and that no one else will stay in the apartment while you are there.
Interaction with Guests
As much as needed. I'm usually there to check you in and to show you the apartment. If I can't be there, then my wife, or my brother or his wife will let you in.
Generally I'll check in on the guests the next morning to make sure that they're all set with directions and transportation.
I live upstairs, so I'm very accessible in person, or via phone or email.
Great restaurants and bars
cool shops (for example, Ample Hills = organic, creative ice cream, or the Olde Brooklyn Bagel Shoppe, which makes fresh, awesome bagels every day!)
beautiful tree-lined streets
old brownstone houses
lots of families
close to three subway lines
Brooklyn Beaches are only 45 minutes away via the subway. Great way to have a "rest" day from sightseeing.

Yes! We are close to three subway lines:
- Q (yellow) and B (orange); three blocks away
- 2/3 (red); five blocks away

Other Things to Note
People are always very happy with the apartment and the help and advice I can provide if needed (since I live upstairs).
Also, being a musician (as well as my wife and my brother and his wife), I can suggest good places to hear music, from jazz to pop and rock.
6pm check-in and 10am check-out might be flexible (depends on the apartment schedule).
It is always possible to leave your luggage should your flight arrive early or depart late.
NO Parties (Dinners are welcome, Respectful guests are welcome over to visit you, watch movies, etc)
No indoor smokers.
Please respect our apt, neighbors and hallways.
No heavy drug users.
This was a great apartment in a great location. I stayed here with my wife and 3 teenage boys and it was very roomy and comfortable. Dimitri stayed in constant contact with us in the lead up to our visit and although away when we arrived arranged someone to let us in and show us around. He also had lots of documentation and maps, menus etc put together which made it easy for us to plan our visit. The apartment kitchen was very well equipped (probably one of the best we have stayed in) and in general everything was easy. It is about 5 min walk to 2 different subway lines which get you to lower Manhattan in about 15-20 min or upper in Time Square in about 30 min. The general area was very safe and lots of good restaurants and supermarket close. I had a couple of jogs around and was very impressed with Prospect Park which is also very close and wish I had more time to explore it. A great place to stay and excellent host - would happily stay in this apartment again.
L'accoglienza al nostro arrivo da parte del nostro host e' stata molto cordiale con dettagliate informazioni sulla casa e i dintorni. L'appartamento rispecchiava la descrizione ed era molto accogliente, pulito e fornito di tutto per cui il nostro soggiorno e' stato molto piacevole. Il quartiere tranquillo e caratteristico con un grande parco vicino e due fermate della subway comode.
This is a great airbnb apartment. If you get the chance -stay here.
We have stayed in a number of airbnb apartments in Brooklyn now and this stands out as the best. You can't tell it from the photos but it is by far the most comfortable and was to live with.
The things that make this place great are all things you might take for granted but many of the alternatives do not have them. They are:
1. a thermostat
2. rugs - making the place cosier and quieter
3. a fully equipped kitchen - including dishwasher, and all the little things that make cooking easy.
4. It is set up for short term lets with maps / guides / menus galore.
Dimitri was a great host - friendly and accessible. We left a couple of bits behind and Dimitri made sure they were returned to us.
This is a great neighbourhood. We had small children with us and there is the most amazing playground I've ever seen right across the road. It is packed with donated push along toys / water tables / plastic kitchens and has equipment for younger and older children - so much fun. It's also near the museum, library, gardens and B/Q lines which are fast (relatively).
Dimitri is a great host. He is very welcoming and reactive. The apartment is perfect for a group of 7 people and we feel like home there! The neighborhood is also very calm and friendly with great shops and restaurants nearby and easy access to public transports. I warmly recommend the place.

Dimitri is the perfect host! He was always available for us during and before this week, he gave us a lot of great places for brunch, dinner, supermarkets and other activities. In top of that, in the apartment there are a lot of documentation about the neighbourhood and Dimitri gave for each of us a paper with subway's information.
The apartment is really nice, clean and quiet. It's perfect for 7 persons. Also, we enjoyed Brooklyn with a lot of restaurants and cultural activities. It is really easy to go from Brooklyn to Manhattan.
We adviced you this very good address for unforgettable holidays!
Dimitri est l’hôte parfait! Il a toujours été très disponible avant notre séjour et pendant notre séjour, il nous a donné de bonnes adresses pour le brunch, le dîner, les super marchés et les autres activités. En plus de cela, il y a beaucoup de documentations sur le quartier dans l'appartement et Dimitri nous a donné à chacun une feuille avec les directions du métro.
L'appartement est très joli, propre et calme. C'est parfait pour 7 personnes. Nous avons apprécié le quartier de Brooklyn avec ses restaurants et ses activités culturelles. C'est très facile de se déplacer de Brooklyn à Manhattan. Nous vous recommandons cette très bonne adresse pour passer des vacances inoubliables!
Adorei o apartamento e o bairro. Por sugestão do anfitrião, passamos o 31 no parque próximo e vimos a queima de fogos e show de música. Foi excelente.
Várias linhas de metrô ficam a poucas quadras.
Dimitri é muito simpático e tem todas as dicas para melhor aproveitarmos o tempo.
Dimitri was very welcoming, and is a great communicator! He met us as we arrived and answered our everyday questions by text. He helped us to call a car service to take us back to the airport, so that went very smoothly. The apartment is very well laid out, bathrooms and the kitchen were recently renovated. The street is fairly quiet, and the building is very safe. Metro stops are less than 10 min walk. We had 5 people in the party, and there was plenty of room. We would stay there again! Highly recommended.

I'm from California and Austria, have been living in NYC since 1998. I'm a musician. I love living in Brooklyn, because it seems to be the perfect combination of small town and big city, Europe and the US, friendly neighborhood feel and cosmopolitan attitude.
