Ute's place is highly recommendable!
Located in industrial, but trending neighborhood Govanus, very close to green heaven Prospect Park, charming cafe's, breweries and local coffee joints - and even an ice cream shop just around the corner, this clean and cool apt. is a very good choice if you want to experience a hipster hood in the making.
Ute is a kind and helpful host, and very quick to reply to any questions or inquiries you might have.
Ute was friendly, efficient and very accommodating to our arrival and departure times. It was great that we knew she was nearby in case we needed anything, although the apartment was so well-equipped that we didn't have to call on her once. The neighbourhood is unusual (it's really Gowanus rather than Carroll Gardens), and looks rather industrial and rundown at first glance, but we were delighted to discover how many artists live and work there now. We found many nice places to eat and loved going for runs in Prospect Park a mile up the road. It felt like a very vibrant and undiscovered part of New York. The subway was also nearby and getting to Manhattan was very straightforward. We'd definitely stay here again.
Enjoyed the apartment, it was clean and well presented. However, we were a little surprised at just how industrial the local area was - and the building. I know it says that on the website, but it is quite extreme. Any way, the friendliness and helpfulness of the host made up for any rough edges on the accommodation.
Coole Wohnung über einer Autogarage Nahe Kanal in Gowanus. Nächste aufstrebende Gegend zwischen Park Slope und Carroll Gardens. Moderne, geschmackvolle, farblich schöne Einrichtung. Room with view. Ute ist sehr sympathisch und hilft gerne bei Fragen weiter. Gerne wieder.
This is a lovely apartment that perfectly suited our space and location needs. Ute was a responsive and pleasant host who has put a lot of thought and care in to this apartment. It was light and sunny thanks to some big windows, was immaculately clean, nicely furnished and had a comfortable bed and great shower. And it was quiet at night, which was a huge bonus especially in a city like Brooklyn. The neighborhood was somewhat industrial in nature, but we liked that and felt it added to the charm. We did notice some exhaust-like smells during our stay due to the apartment's proximity to an auto repair place, but it was isolated to the weekdays and had more or less dissipated throughout the weekend. This might have been an anomaly as we didn't notice any other reviews mentioning it.
Ute, her boyfriend Joel, and her apartment were all unbelievably lovely! The apartment was in a conveniently situated location and the neighborhood has lots of gems in and around it! Ute was incredibly responsive and accommodating and seemed eager to help make our stay as seamless and pleasurable as possible. The only unforeseen circumstance was the apartment's location above an auto shop, which was noisy maybe two or three times during our 8 day stay (not in the early mornings, and it's only open Mon- Fri so not really an issue at all!).
I would recommend staying here to any and everyone, as you'll be surely taken care of and have the honor of staying in a stunning, bang-for-your-buck apartment! My boyfriend and I hope to return one day, as we feel we only just began exploring and becoming familiar with the surrounding area!
Das 1. Mal Airbnb und Dank Ute haben wir Lust auf mehr.
Das Loft ist schön eingericht und sauber. Vom Wlan über Handtücher bis zum Föhn war alles vorhanden. Die Metro Haltestelle Union Street ist zu Fuß gut erreichbar. Von dort aus braucht man ca 25Minuten bis Manhatten.
Wir können die Unterkunft absolut weiterempfehlen!
Danke Ute :)

About the Host, Ute
I am originally from Germany and moved from Berlin to New York, working here in the arts for over 7 years now. I love the city, and Brooklyn is the best. I moved to Gowanus from Williamsburg for the variety of the different neighborhoods here (elegant residential and old school industrial without the massive crowds).
Cabinet Magazine is right around the corner. Check their website, they might have a lecture while you are in town.
Art Gallery, often with local artists. Check website for current shows and lectures.
An permanent art project worth checking out. See website for opening hours.
Small, fun neighborhood pool with lots of kids. Open during summer break. No charge.
Great local seafood place. Low key and personal.
Fancy breads and terrific restaurant. Just opened.
Great diner for breakfast or a burger. They deliver too.
Yummy and cheap taco place. Also great for home delivery.
Lovely coffee place. Great for people with stroller: no stairs!
New burger joint by the folks from Root Hill cafe. So how can it not be excellent?
Great bagel and coffee place right by the R train
Lovely little wine bar with great food, never crowded, with a fire place even.
Okay supermarket. The closest one you can get to.
Great bagel and coffee place right by the F train.
This is a great, newly renovated park, with a soccer field, play areas for all ages, tons of swing, and public programming.
Fancier, more expensive grocery store one block farther away.
Our local movie theater.
Brooklyn's version of Central Park, just bigger, less crowded and, well, nicer.
