  • Lorelei and Alex are absolutely wonderful hosts, very friendly and full of advice on what to do in the local area. They made us feel right at home. The room is bright, spacious and a great place to relax amidst the bustle of NYC. Close to subway and Brooklyn flea plus some great local cafés. Really enjoyed staying with Lorelei and Alex!

  • We had a fabulous 5 night stay in Lori and Alex's home as we explored Brooklyn and NY city with our son. They were warm and welcoming and always willing to share some local knowledge about things to do, places to eat and the best way to get somewhere. Our rooms were comfortable, clean, large and relaxing and having our own bathroom was a bonus. We enjoyed meeting their family, neighbors and friends too. We stayed in 6 other air bnb's on this holiday and consider this to be the most hospitable, welcoming and friendly. Thanks to you both for adding value and nice memories our travels.

  • Lorelei and Alex are very friendly hosts. It was lovely to stay in their beautiful, original house in Brooklyn. They were kind enough to help us more than once and if we had not been so keen on seeing so many places in NYC, we would have liked to see more of them! We owe them several most interesting tips.
    Living in a quiet town in Germany, we were happy to have brought ear plugs with us which made us sleep well.
    The room and the bathroom are very recommandable. We enjoyed listening to records from the big record collection in our room before we spent an evening in the folk music club "The Bitter End" in Bleecker Street.
    Thank you! Bettina & Barbara

  • I mean this when I say this is one of the best places I have ever stayed through airbnb. The place is amazing! Lorelei and Alex are truly wonderful hosts and lovely people. The room is bright, spacious, immaculately clean, and incredibly comfortable. The house has great design and is in a great area with lots of unique cafe's and shops, whilst also being a half hour subway to Manhattan. If you are visiting New York this is THE place to stay and I hope to return someday.

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.
