Please, no sleeping on the couches.
And no large parties. Small dinner parties are permitted but not large catered affairs.
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
This was our first airbnb experience and while we had some level of anxiety that was quickly forgotten as we toured the unit. The unit was exactly as represented and while Robert was not available upon our arrival he had communicated that with us and the use of the neighbor to get us started worked extremely well. Our only issue was neighborhood parking and in Brooklyn that is troublesome and I don't think avoided. We were close to restaurants and the subway. We would certainly consider this unit again based on convenience, comfort and overall roominess.
Tout correspondait à la description des lieux. Superbe logement, dans un quartier calme de Brooklyn mais a seulement une trentaine de minute du pont de Brooklyn. Une bien meilleur entrée en matière pour une première visite de Manhattan. Pour ceux qui connaissent, un quartier où il fait bon revenir après une journée tumultuante en ville. Plein de Resto sympas tout autour et Trader Joe pour ceux qui,préfère cuisiner dans la cuisine très bien équipée. Plusieurs séjours a NY et définitivement le meilleur logement à ce jour. Merci Robert pour l accueil!
We (mam, dad and our 3 grown up kids) spent an entire week at Roberts place and we can only confirm everything which has been said in the other reviews. The appartment is clean and huge. The sofa in the second bedroom has been replaced by a queen size bed and there is also a queen size bed in "Petes place", which is the annexe room. The neighbourhood is very nice. I especially loved Dean street which is around the corner of the appartment. It feels like you're playing in an American movie. The neighbourhood is also very calm so you can sleep fantastic at night. It is also only a 10 minutes walk to the Barclays center, home stadium of the Brooklyn Nets. We went to see a game and we loved it. Brooklyn bridge is a 20 minutes walk but definitely worth it ! Metro station Hoyt is a 5 minutes walk and brings you into Manhattan in 20-30 minutes. If you get out at the next stop (Jay station) you can buy last minute tickets for broadway at half price and with practically no queue !! (TKTS office). It was great to return to the appartment in the evening after a long day strolling in Manhattan. Felt like coming home. Thank you Robert for the great welcome and for keeping our luggage the last day so that we could use our time at the maximum.
The only negative point I can think of is that days go by too fast !!

Robert svarade snabbt på min förfrågan om att få hyra lägenheten. Han var mycket serviceminded, tillmötesgående och hjälpsam.
Both the host and the accommodations surpassed our expectations. The duplex is spacious and beautifully appointed, and Robert was a wonderful host - very helpful and friendly. The neighborhood is one of Brooklyn's best. In short we loved our stay and could not have asked for more.
