  • I'm so happy I stayed at Kyle's place while I was in NY! Kyle was great at communicating, super fast to respond, and very accommodating. The backyard/garden/patio was an amazing bonus and really quiet and peaceful. The apartment itself is beautifully decorated and very cozy. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Brooklyn.

  • Kyle was the perfect host - prompt, thorough, and accommodating. We stayed at his place five days in December and was pleased by the location, comfort, and cleanliness. We felt the neighborhood was safe, interesting, and the subway is only a short walk away. Kyle's apartment is definitely unique. He was out of town, but arranged for someone to meet us. He did remain available, and his assistant checked in with us during our stay as well. I recommend staying here.

  • Enjoyed staying at Kyle's apartment - great location, clean, well stocked, and cool design. Apartment stayed warm despite cold weather outside. Kyle was responsive, friendly, and very reasonable to deal with. Highly recommended.

  • I rented Kyle's place for my father to stay during a recent visit to Brooklyn. I was nervous because my dad can be on the picky side but Kyle lives much closer to me than the nearest hotel and I just had a baby so it seemed like a good bet. It was. Here's my dad's report: "Great location if visiting in Prospect Heights or Park Slope. Spartan --but bed, shower and Wi-Fi are excellent. Radiator heat made place warm without window being left partially open--but that is probably common with Brooklyn older buildings." (For the record, I don't think the place was spartan at all but am faithfully pasting in my dad's review....)

  • The apt. was clean, comfortable and the bed was firm and comfortable. It was close to where we wanted to be. Other than the wake up call from the radiator in the AM. when the heat came on it is a nice place.

  • I had a great experience at Kyle's place! Very comfortable bed, interesting art and furniture, fun neighborhood. Kyle was also very easy to communicate with, and an overall great host. I definitely hope to stay at Kyle's place again and would recommend it to anyone wanting to visit NYC!

    November 2013
  • The apartment is very comfortable, clean, very well located, and an easy trip into Manhattan if you need that. I went in every day for work and would get to Union Square in twenty minutes door-to-door. The patio is a great bonus if the weather cooperates- which it did for us! Kyle was a very attentive host and made certain we had recommendations in the neighborhood. We will stay there again if our schedules overlap.

    October 2013
  • This apartment was a great artistic oasis. It allowed us to just unwind from the city and enjoy the atmosphere. The neighborhood is quiet and very close to all walking. Kyle sent us recommendations and checked in frequently making sure we were having fun.

    September 2013
  • Kyle was an excellent host. His responses to my inquiries were quick, and I was able to finalize the process of reservation in less than 24 hours.

    Kyle designer's apartment is beautiful and very clean. It is fully equipped and very convenient. The patio and the backyard create a country like atmosphere that is very pleasant. The apartment is very close to all trains and lots of great bars and restaurants. I hope that
    his apartment would be available each time that I travel to NY.

  • Kyle's place is a very memorable experience. The amazing artistic setting is a clean, neat with all the amenities except for a TV ~Which is I say is a plus since you could appreciate the real Brooklyn and NYC life to offer outside. Host is accommodating and a true inspiration thru his accomplishments and work put in his apartment. Enjoyed the garden 's sunlight awakening you each morning after sleeping in a comfortable bed. Each day was a as precious as the next. A real retreat for my real busy life.

About
A design/builder who specializes in the Neorustic aesthetic-- angular recycled outbuildings are my specialty. My apartment is full of my work, pieces I have brought back from Asia, vintage modern furniture, and work by other Brooklyn artists. I also built the buildings out back. I have a B.A. in Sanskrit and Indian Philosophy, and am fluent in Nepali, Spanish, and Italian. I spent years living abroad (Italy and Nepal) and frequently travel to Latin America for my work. Having traveled all over the world, I appreciate a warm, inviting place to stay, and try to provide that for my guests.
