  • I want to say thank you to Alex and Lorelei because they both played a part in contributing to making my first New York experience unforgettable. I felt very comfortable being with them. The house is great and also reflects a little bit of their live-style: creative, open-minded, elegant and unconventional. With best wishes from Germany, Kathrin

  • A very good adres; nice people, a private bathroom and a lovely house. The room is full of lp’s with music we also like, with books that we recognized as could be ours, with a clean white bed (and the matras not to soft…). So it went out to be a very good match. We liked to stay in the Brooklyn neighborhood were Alex en Lorelei have there home. It is in fact a perfect place to stay.

  • Lorelei and Alex were splendid hosts! Their home is lovely, and conveniently located. And Elvis the cat is the best! Thank you again, Lorelei and Alex! I will definitely return if my travels take me back to Brooklyn.

  • Alex and Lorelei are very interesting and hospitable hosts, and were extremely helpful throughout our stay. The room itself is very spacious and clean, and there was plenty of privacy as we had the use of the entire upper floor of their townhouse. They provided us with plenty of great recommendations for local restaurants, bars and attractions worth visiting. Their cat Elvis is also very friendly! We would definitely recommend them to fellow travellers, and we would consider staying there again if we visit New York!

  • My room was spacious and comfortable, there was much interesting reading material, and both Alex and Lorelei were gracious hosts. The house rules were explained simply and politely, and the atmosphere was unaffectedly friendly, made even more so by the presence of an appealing male cat. I only wish I had had more time to investigate Alex's and Lorelei's art work.

  • Eva and I had a great time in this relaxed Brooklyn home! Alex and Lorelei gave us all kinds of good advices about things to check, to do and not to do in New York. We had great time, also because we could use their bikes! For those who dont know: Go biking in NY, its amazing! And Elvis the house cat is also very adorable...

  • premier contact un peu bizarre ! monsieur un peu autoritaire, un peu "militaire", ayant visiblement l'habitude d'être obéit !... pas très "commerçant" !...
    à améliorer !
    madame, elle, est charmante.

    puis on comprend que c'est par crainte d'accueillir un inconnu chez soi, crainte d'être débordé, crainte d'être cambriolé... craintes que nous aurions sans doute à leur place, car ils nous laissent leurs clés dès le premier contact.

    et finalement les deux se révèlent être des gens charmants, cools, ouverts, intelligents, intéressants, avec un vrai sens de l'humour, artistes talentueux dans un domaine rare (vous découvrirez vous mêmes).
    on discute de tout, ça me fait travailler mon anglais ! le courant passe, on regarde même un match ensemble à la télé ! j'apprécie alors cette franchise qui laissait passer du surprenant au début et qui se révèle être du naturel, de l'honnêteté. presque de l'amitié.

    en plus la chambre est grande, les hôtes sont discrets, le lit est parfait, propre, confortable et la salle de bain idem.

    en cas de problème, ils dépannent, ils conseillent les bons coins pour grignoter, ils nous poussent au pont de brooklyn ("montez en voiture, je vais par là aujourd'hui"), font visiter leur atelier d'artiste avec sa porte ancienne dont l'arrivée est une vraie épopée, nous tuyautent pour le métro ou les bus ou le prix réel des musées...

    bref, c'est parfait ! c'était ma première expérience. ça m'incite plutôt à recommencer.

  • We had a lovely stay with Lorelei and Alex. Their home is really neat and comfortable and easy to access. Alex and Lorelei were perfect hosts, providing us with all that we needed and more, I would definitely go back!

    March 2014
  • It was a pleasure to stay at Lorelei and Alex place. Since Lorelei were out for traveling I (or we) had Alex for ourselves. Alex is a very warm and welcoming character, with lot of personality, which influenced our stay in NY in a positive way.

    We really loved to stay in this area of Brooklyn/Clinton Hill. While you are there you feel and see the story of the hood, and if you are lucky, you will get the story of the build-up of the house.

    I can definitely recommend staying here.

About
My husband and I are considered by all of our friends to be amazing hosts. We are a mix of nationalities: Alex was born in Buenos Aires and I am a native New Yorker, we met in Jerusalem where we lived for a large portion of our lives. We work together as artists. We love our Brooklyn home and practically did all the work on it. Alex and I are devoted to art and to our community, we created a number of art murals around the neighborhood. Among our favorite activities: hanging out with people, cooking good and healthy meals, we are avid readers and enjoy quality cinema rather than TV. When looking back at past travelling experiences the most memorable ones are those in which we engaged with local people and became temporarily rooted in the place we visited. This is the feeling we would like to give you when staying at our home.
