Truly the last hidden location gem near Manhattan!
Come enjoy GREENPOINT...the name says it all! :D
Thank you for reading,
Carlos place is very nice and clean. The neighbourhood is quiet and there is easy public transport access. We had our own room, so enough privacy. We had a really good time staying there.
We had a great week at Carlo's house! He was a great host, kind and happy. The house is clean and we had our own room! The neighborhood is safe, with some nice ethnic restaurants and it's really easy to get to Manhattan! Great view of Manhattan from the roof!!!
My stay at Carlo place was great. It is great location - just next to the river. View from the rooftop is just amazing! Building is new and modern. Highly recommended!
Very good and reliable host. Location as described: clean and friendly environment. Near by the ferry either to Wall Str. or midtown. We had a very good time with Carlo! Thanks!
no problems at all. Easy commute to Manhattan via the ferry barely three blocks from the apartment (but it doesn't run on weekends).
Carlo is a great host with a great personality. The flat and room are clean and as described. You won't have any bad surprises. The neighborhood is calm with many bars/restaurants and independent shops. Highly recommended.
We enjoy 1 wk stay with Carlo's house. He is a nice guy and provide lots of useful information.
Carlo was a great host and the place was as I was expecting. I would recommend this place.
Miranda and I warmly recommend staying at the nice apartment of Carlo (and his cats Mia and Max). New and quiet apartment building (w/ swimming pool and 24/u gym), clean apartment, great breakfast facilities. Located 2 blocks from subway station.
Most importantly though, Carlo is a really nice and generous host! Thank you Carlo, we will be sure to visit again when back in NYC!
Greatly appreciated our stay at Carlo's, very nice , clean, quiet and well located apartment. Carlo is very friendly : perfect host ! Thanks for your hospitality.
