Guest access

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.

The neighborhood

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
friendly people
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.
five blocks from Prospect Park (which has a 5K loop, I run there every day)

Getting around

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

Getting here from the Airports is easy:
JFK: Taxi ($35/4 people), AirTrain & Subway ($7/person)
LaGuardia: Taxi ($30/4 people)
Newark: Taxi ($75/4 people)

I have detailed taxi and public transportation directions which I can email you.

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.

Our stay at the apartment was very satisfactory. It is located in a quiet and charming neighborhood in Brooklyn close to several subway stations. It was nice and clean when we arrived. Dimitri was available throughout the stay. Overall a good experience!

Very nice and comfortable apartment with plenty of room for our group (6 adults, 3 children). Dimitri is a great host, available but not intrusive. The location was perfect for our house, close to shops, restaurants, and subways but in a quiet part of Brooklyn.

If you're reading this, it means you're considering Dimitri's wonderful Prospect Heights rental. I would recommend that you go immediately to 'request booking' and snap this one up! We, a multi-generational family, with members aged 2 - 85 including a son and family visiting from Singapore, rented for 4 days in mid-December 2016 and our stay here could not have been improved: 5 stars really seems inadequate. This cozy apartment is beautifully decorated, with original art work on the walls, comfortable furniture, great beds and a terrific kitchen. We are foodies, but with a 2 year old, we ended up doing a lot of cooking in and appreciated the good cookware and cooking utensils. When we did eat out, we had lots of places to choose from and despite the foul weather during those days, we walked everywhere. Supermarkets are nearby as are delis, espresso bars, taquerias, cocktail bars, restaurants, diners, bagel shop, pizza places - better than at home! And Dimitri was always available if we needed assistance or advice. The apartment is on a busy street, but no road noise can be heard inside. There is one front bedroom, but we used the back bedrooms and slept in silence. Subways and buses are close-by and taxis are easily hailed or called. For children - playground across the street, Children's Museum relatively near, and for small children, a nice selection of toys in the apartment. For adults, The Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Barclay Center, local jazz clubs - whatever your pleasure, Brooklyn has it and Prospect Heights has Dmitri's rental. We hope we've convinced you . You'll be astonished how quickly you'll feel at home and how seamless your visit will be.

Dimitri was a very friendly host. The appartment was excellent, even better than the pictures show. Brooklyn is a beautiful quiet area and very relaxed to stay after a busy day in new york. We had a fantastic week!!! Good wifi

I've been a member with airbnb for over 4yrs and i have to say, Dimitris apartment has been our favourtie overall. Dimitri kept in communication from the moment we booked. We were a family of 8 adults and 1 infant and were greeted by Dimitris brother when we arrived. Dimitris apartment is exceptionally clean with just the right amount of space needed for us all. Having 2 bathrooms made it very accessible for our group. Each of the four bedrooms was a perfect size. We loved the lounge which overlooked the street. The kitchen is stored with all the equipment needed for a cook in. The apartment is surrounded by beautiful brownhouses, a convenient/deli store next to the apartment which was very handy if we needed anything, a barbar next to the deli store where my sons visited and recommend, 5 minutes up the road there are a line of stores, restaurants and bakeries for an early morning coffee and the subway just 10minutes walk away. Dimitri is very organised with a folder containing maps, closest subways, menus, restaurants etc... Any other questions you may have, Dimitri is always available to answer. He made our stay so much better by going over and above for us even organising and calling a cab when we were leaving. You will not go wrong booking with Dimitri. Thank you Dimitri. Wishing you and your family all the best. Till next time

Dimitri User ProfileDimitri is a superhost.

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.
