Please, no sleeping on the couches.
And no large parties. Small dinner parties are permitted but not large catered affairs.
The accomodations were top notch! The place was clean and roomy and Robert was an exceptional host and took care of all our needs. The area was perfect for getting to and from the city - 15 to the heart of Manhattan, and was also centrally located in Brooklyn. Would definately recommend this place and we'll come back again when visiting NY!
Buona posizione a circa 25 minuti da Time sqare per una casa bella e spaziosa, Robert è molto disponibile e veloce nelle risposte, ottima esperienza.
I would give this stay 10 stars if I could. To find such a spacious, interesting, comfortable, well equipped apartment so close to Brooklyn and Manhattan was amazing. The only downside was that we loved your city so much we really spent very little time in the apartment which felt such a shame as we would have liked another few days just to lounge about, sit in the courtyard , dip into all the fascinating books and just have more time to enjoy the ambience! We shall have to come back for that! As well as visiting Manhattan we also loved eating out in Brooklyn, wandering through Brooklyn Heights and down to the waterfront, the walk over Brooklyn Bridge and the East River Ferry to mid town Manhattan. This was a fabulous location and an easy walk to so many subway stations that coyly anywhere easily including to JFK for our onward trip. Thank you so much. We would love to visit again . Also thank you for such prompt replies and communication which made arrival and departure so hassle free.
Vi bodde här , tre vuxna och två barn i juni 2015. Robert var en väldigt vänlig och serviceinriktad värd. Han svarade snabbt och utförligt på alla mejl. Han mötte oss vid ankomst och visade oss hur allt fungerade i lägenheten . Försåg oss även med kartor och restaurangtips. Kvarteren runt lägenheten är ganska lugna med mestadels bostadshus men några kvarter bort finns ett par livliga restaurang -och affärsgator. Området kändes tryggt, även kvällstid. Som flera andra påpekat, så tar man sig lätt in till Manhattan med tunnelbanan på ca 15 minuter, flera linjer ligger på nära gångavstånd.
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.
