Bien que nous n'ayons pas rencontré Juan, il a toujours été très disponible pour répondre à nos questions. Nous nous étions mis d'accord sur l'emplacement des clefs et cela s'est bien passé.
La situation de l'appartement est très bonne. L'accès au métro est proche et Manhattan est accessible rapidement. Le fait de rentrer d'un Manhattan bruyant le soir et de se retrouver au calme est très agréable et cela incite à visiter Brooklyn et ses environs. La climatisation était très appréciable.
L'équipement de la maison est bon et la maison est spacieuse pour des vacances. Les 2 toilettes appportent du confort.
La seule réserve est que la deuxième chambre est idéale pour des enfants en bas âge, moins pour des adolescents (1 lit simple + 1 matelas gonflable).
Had a lovely weekend staying at Juan's. It's just as in the pictures... homey and very comfortable. Situated in a very nice neighborhood in Brooklyn and very near the tube station. Juan was amazing with tips on getting around and local restaurants to try. Would definitely stay here again!
Our host was there to meet us and orient us to the apartments (email hidden)e location was great with easy access to the subway and good restaurants as well as places to buy our own food to prepare at the apartment. The apartment was comfortable and easily accommodated four adults and one child. Queen inflatable easy to use and comfortable.
Wonderful home for family. We had to make a last minute arrangement for my family's weekend in NY. We were so appreciative that Juan and his family could accommodate us. The home is a full brownstone with old world charm, very nice decorative details with a cozy home feel. 3 levels with the top 2 levels as living space - 2nd floor: living room, kitchen, full bath. 3rd floor: 2 bedrooms and half bath (toilet, sink). Our kids felt right at home the instant they walked in. Basic TV (apple TV available but we didn't bother), washer is available but it's an apartment dual washer/dryer and so not powerful... better to hand wash with their rack, easy wi-fi. A big plus was the crib for our 2 year old, and another bed in the same room so the 2 kids could sleep together. Terrific location in Carroll Gardens, quiet yet few block walk to Carroll Gardens station and the great restaurants, shopping. We had a wonderful time and Juan was a lovely host. It's an ideal rental for the family who prefers the more neighborhood quaint stay... always our preferred type of place. We would definitely stay here again!
Juan's Apt was great and very comfortable. The apt is very spacious. Great kitchen!
I would stay here again!
Juan and his family made the experience very easy going. I would recommend staying at his place if you are looking for an apartment in Carroll Gardens-a great neighborhood!
Our stay here was as we had anticipated, but we did not anticipate how much we would love the neighbourhood and feeling like "locals". Juan and Naomi (and Jonah) were great hosts and took extra time & care emailing prior to our visit and making recommendations for us which were very much appreciated - for our travelling style they were bang on!
If you want to go into the city, the location is super convenient, less than a 5 minute walk to the F&G trains. But, after a day fighting the throngs in Soho, we couldn't wait to get back to the chill and friendliness of Carroll Gardens. We ended up spending most of the weekend eating, drinking and exploring in many of the neighbourhoods of Brooklyn, which were easily reached by walking or a quick hop on the subway. The home is well appointed, and sits on a pretty, leafy street - two bathrooms is a real plus!
About the Host, Juan
I'm from Massachusetts but have lived in NYC since '01. I work with museums around the US and enjoy spending time with family, traveling and seeking out the beautiful outdoors. I kitesurf on Long Island or Cape Cod whenever possible and hope to get my pilots license someday.
