L’appartement de Robert est très agréable, spacieux et très bien équipé, tout à fait conforme au descriptif et aux photos. Bien situé à Brooklyn, dans un quartier calme et proche de plusieurs stations de métro desservant Manhattan, avec des commerces et des restos à proximité. Robert est disponible et de bon conseil.
This lovely apartment was spacious, bright and serene. We (4 adults) really enjoyed having so much space for "downtime", as well as getting together in the very welcoming living / dining / kitchen space. Having meals outside in the courtyard was fantastic. The location was excellent - it was only a short walk to several subway lines, and a brief ride took us to Times Square, galleries, Williamsburg, etc. we also enjoyed walking to Prospect Park, the piers at Brooklyn Bridge Park, etc. even at night it felt safe and convenient. Robert was a friendly and flexible host who made arrival and departure simple and convenient. His excellent list of neighborhood restaurants, coffee shops and bakeries kept us busy! We would definitely return, and highly recommend this listing.
Wir, 2 Erwachsene und 3 Jugendliche, waren für 4 Nächte bei Robert. Die Wohnung war sehr geräumig und perfekt eingerichtet. Wir konnnten dank des warmen Wetters sogar die Abende bei Barbecue im Freien genießen und das mitten in Brooklyn. Insgesamt war alles wie beschrieben und sollte was fehlen, hilft einem Robert sofort.
In knapp 10 Minuten erreicht man die Haltestellen der Subway und dann ist man ruck zuck in Manhattan. Bis zur Brooklyn Bridge läuft man knapp 30 min. Zum Airport haben wir uns einen Shuttle gegönnt, was aber bei 5 Personen auch kaum teurer war als Subway und Airtrain zusammen, dafür aber wesentlich bequemer.
We have just returned from a fabulous 5 night break in NY. Robert made the whole experience very easy and enjoyable with excellent and rapid communication beforehand about what to do on arrival etc. The accommodation is excellent, just like the photos, and is in a calm and safe area. Access to anywhere in Manhattan is very easy and quick using the subway and there are three stations within an easy walk, e.g. Nevins Street to Battery, 2 stops, to Times Square 25 minutes door to door ( much faster than Taxis).
There are excellent bars and restaurants an easy walk away ( Try Building on Bond Street, a local bar and restaurant just round the corner.)
Everything about this place is superb and I would return at the drop of a hat.
Thank you Robert for all your help.
I booked this duplex in Brooklyn almost one year before we used it to house some of my immediate family who were coming to town for my son's wedding. The actual space is even better than the description. The condo was sparkling clean, had every amenity I could think of, and was very comfy and cozy. Sitting in the courtyard was like being in Europe! If you didn't know Brooklyn was right out the door, you could imagine being anywhere in the world! The beds are comfortable, the parking is challenging, but it works (be patient) and the neighborhood has everything you could need or want. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks Robert!
Me and my family (there were 7 of us) had such a great time at Robert's place. The house was adorable and the perfect size for me and my fam. The area was easy to get to and convenient for the subway. Robert was very friendly and willing to help us out. I definitely recommend his house to anyone that wants a cozy place to stay during their vacation in NYC.
Me, and my wife together with our three grown up daughters visited this apartment and felt immidiately at home. No problem at all with room for all of us and everything was as described. Nice bed- and bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen with a big table where we ate several breakfasts and dinners together. A special bonus to the cottagehouse and the outer place in between. Very nice in warm days (which we had several
