Interaction with Guests
Our interaction with our guests varies. We will always meet you in person to give you keys, and will be present throughout your stay.
After that, it really depends on scheduling. We've had a fair number of guests that wake up later in the morning after we've left for work, have breakfast, visit some of the rich culture that New York provides, go out for dinner and drinks, and then arrive home again after we've gone to sleep. These people have had a great time despite not seeing us very much.
Other guests have been around more and we've cooked for them, watched movies together, and gone out to some local Brooklyn spots and had a great time.
We know what a busy, crowded and potentially stressful city New York can be. It can be a complete culture shock to even those who are used to city living. As a general rule of thumb, we tend to stay out of people's hair, because after a long day of running around the city, the best thing to come home to is a quiet sanctuary to unwind and relax. However, if you want to hang out, please let us know. We love meeting new people, which is one of the reasons we are hosts on Air Bnb.
Park Slope is one of of the best neighborhoods around, as it has literally everything you could want. Walk east and you're at Prospect Park, a 585-acre public park designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. It features tons of open space, a zoo, ice skating, biking, running, ball fields, food trucks and more.
Walk north, and there's great shopping & restaurants. Our guidebook has all of our favorite picks for area locations.
Walk south, and you'll find Green-Wood Cemetery. Inspired by Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where a cemetery in a naturalistic park-like landscape in the English manner was first established, Green-Wood was able to take advantage of the varied topography provided by glacial moraines. Battle Hill, the highest point in Brooklyn, is on cemetery grounds, rising approximately 200 feet above sea level. As such, there on that spot in 1920, was erected a Revolutionary War monument by Frederick Ruckstull, Altar to Liberty: Minerva. From this height, the bronze Minerva statue gazes towards The Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor.
One of the best parts about getting around from our place, is that it's on two, totally separate train lines. Two blocks away is the R (and the D & N later at night and on weekends). Take it to Times Square, Madison Square Garden, Rockefeller Center, NYU, LaGuardia Airport and all places in between. It, like all other subway stations are 24 hours, and easily accessible.
Five blocks away are the F and G trains, which of course, run to completely different parts of the city, like Williamsburg, the Lower East Side and Long Island City.
We find it invaluable to have two different lines so close to our place, because if one is undergoing repairs, the other will be running.
We are also on a bike lane, and there is always plenty of free parking. We are by plenty of bus lines as well, if you enjoy getting around that way.
Other Things to Note
We love hosting on Air Bnb, and warmly welcome you into your home. Please treat it with the respect and love you would your own. :)
Our loft has a water heater that is good for 2-3 showers in a row. Any more than that is not really feasible. We both work pretty typical 9-5, Monday-Friday jobs, and tend to use the bathroom from about 7:15 AM - 8:30 AM. If you could avoid showering during that time, it would be great. Also, when finished with the shower and bathroom, please keep the shower curtain closed and the bathroom door open to allow the curtain to dry properly.
Cooked food needs to be kept in the fridge, and dishes need to be kept in the kitchen.
First of all we want to great them for welcoming us in their (email hidden)ry courteous people with easy talking habit...Well their flat was as described and our privacy was respected...very well located as the subway was not far from the appartement. We really did appreciate our stay and will recomend them to everyone that want some easy going life in NYC...
Lovely and experienced hosts, huge place, and warm room. Although it's simple to take the subway, expect to spend at least 30 minutes to get into the city, which means that once you leave for the day, you most likely won't return due to the commute time. Overall good experience.
Had a really nice and comfy one night stay at Adam and Sarah's. We needed a place in Brooklyn near friends in Park Slope. The apartment is conveniently located near the subway and has a great, authentic loft vibe (it's still zoned as commercial space). The room, as others have pointed out, is huge. We could've practiced ballroom dancing in there if we were into that :). Im always a little nervous about heat in the winter, but it was nice and warm. We wound up eating a late take away dinner and sat at the cute little booth, which was like eating out! Adam and Sarah were very accommodating and low key. Great experience and we'd definitely stay again if we needed a place in Park Slope!
THIS IS NOT IN PARK SLOPE (as stated in the description "5 windows in an amazing loft in Park Slope”). It is in Gownas. The worst area in Brooklyn I’ve ever seen.
Lot’s of space, close to the train and decent amount of light.
- Very dusty. I'm allergic to dust mites and such, and I've never had a reaction as bad as I had at this apartment.
- The location is terrible. Outside there was a lot of construction, it's right next to a highway, it's next-door to some kind of heavy machinery rental place. It's a few blocks away from any kind of decent looking neighbourhood.
- The entrance is hard to find.
- There was some kind of blood stains on the sheets.
- The hosts were very anti social when we encountered them on a couple of occasions, boarding on ignoring our attempts to interact.
- The "4th wall" is paper thin, all sound goes straight through it. Everything can be heard.
- The bathroom is tiny and was dirty.
- We were awoken at the crack of dawn each day by construction work.
We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. As you can see from our other reviews most of our other guests enjoy staying in an authentic loft in a cool and up-and-coming area of Brooklyn, and we do our best to accommodate guests and prevent problems when we are told about them when they arise. Our loft is in a former manufacturing building in an industrial area of Brooklyn that is in transition, and that is clear from our listing and from taking a look at the map. We are very close to The Bell House, Whole Foods, and the Museum of Morbid Anatomy, and the F, G and R trains, which makes this far from the worst area in Brooklyn. We are near the BQE, which is also clear from the map, and that also makes our place very convenient for taxis, but maybe not as quiet as some people are used to (like us). That is why we keep a white noise machine in the room that you were welcome to use.
We do our best to accommodate guests and be friendly but stay out of their hair, Your stay coincided with the holidays, and we are getting ready to move so we may have seemed a little busy and the place more cluttered than usual, but I assure you that your sheets were freshly laundered (and we keep a stock of new ones in the guest room, or you could have asked for a change), and that we do have a cleaning person in to dust and clean regularly. Lofts are big and get dusty, and New York can be loud, but if you had told us that you had a problem we would have done what we could to help.
Adam & Sarah
Adam and Sarah are really nice. Their place is big , clean and full of art. It's a good location, near subway and whole foods.
Great place ! There is a lot of space in the loft and many nice places around, only few blocks away.
Our hosts Adam and Sarah were really nice and welcomed us into their very cool loft apartment. We had the huge room on the upper floor with enough space to have stayed even longer. The subway station was around the corner and the area the flat was in is definitely up and coming with lots of nice cafes, bars, and restaurants. We had a great time!

We are a couple in our 30s who enjoy hosting on Air BnB. We have a fantastic loft and after our last roommate moved out, we figured why not try to go without a permanent roommate and just have people stay with us from time to time.
Both of us are, for lack of a better word, foodies. We both love cooking (he used to be a chef, and she used to work at a wine store), and usually make food a few times a week. Our latest triumph has been fresh pasta, which while time consuming, is so completely delicious that we try to do it when we can. He likes cooking Mexican and Indian, and she is a master of all things chickpea.
We are also music lovers (though who isn't?). Both of us keep up with what's going on in the world of indie rock. He takes this knowledge to the radio waves on Error FM and she is an occasional DJ and frequent show-attendee.
We have sort of gotten the hang of hosting on Air Bnb, and enjoy helping people get the most out of the wonderful, vibrant city we live in. Hosting is second nature to us, and we will go to great length to ensure that your stay with us is pleasant.
