Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The appartment was huge, very well placed (close to almost all metro stations), quiet and one feels very great there. Robert is also a great host. I can only recommend it further.

  • We stayed at roberts apartement for 8 nights and really appreciated and enjoyed our stay. The apartement was very clean and tidy and had sufficiently large rooms. Robert was a great host. He was really helpful and gave us a lot of recommendations for our stay in nyc. The location is perfect (metro nearby) and the neighbour hood is really lovely (lots of restaurants and bar). We definiteley recommend a stay at roberts brownstone.

  • Just came back from staying five nights at this really lovely Brklyn duplex with our two teen boys and 22 yr. old niece. Third time visiting nyc. First time in Brklyn as we always stayed in Manhattan before.
    Here are my thoughts.
    convenience: 10 minute walk to three different metro stations. accessing Manhattan and all its sites are easy. Parking was no issue for us. We parked on the street for free. Just read the signs carefully for different restrictions. Really good restaurants nearby. Ask Robert for specifics. He's friendly and informative. He recommended the new Highline path in Manhattan and it was really a cool place to do a walk....

    The Flat: spacious. Clean. Interesting decor... All amenities you can think of....I brought my own hair dryer( didnt see one there). I already miss being there. My niece enjoyed sleeping in the cool carriage house! Will stay there again and would recommend this place to friends.

    Dont forget to walk down to Smith anf Court streets to enjoy the many delightful shops and cafes. When in Manhattan, eat a cornbeef sandwich at Katz deli. Walk a few blocks to Eileens on Cleveland street and eat a slice of cheesecake! Light and wont regret it.

  • The neighborhood is beautiful, full of fun restaurants shops and bars, and also very convenient to the trains and seeing other sites.

    The place itself is a real gem. It also has comfy beds, and all of the needed necessities. Couldn't ask for more.

    Robert was wonderful. Very communicative and accommodating. He went above and beyond for us.

Hi, I'm the building's caretaker and live and work upstairs. On the roof I grow tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, herbs, corn, lettuce and beans, which feed me and my fiance and all the local squirrels for all but the dark months. My passions are cooking, horticulture, music, travel and design. I'm here if you need me and more than happy to point you to all the great music venues and culinary hotspots in the hood and beyond.
