Put key in plastic grocery bag (or other non-descript packaging) and toss over gate far enough so that nobody can grab it through gate. Thanks!
We had a great time in Brooklyn, and enjoyed our stay at Chuck and Tiffany's. There flexible check in time was certainly helpful, as I arrived at 1PM, and Chuck greeted me at the door.
Their place sleeps 8 comfortably, 1 queen bed, 1 queen sofa bed, a full size sofa pull out and two twin bunks. Two full bathrooms were a definite plus. The highlight was certainly the spacious backyard, with ample seating, a grill, tree house and trampoline!
I would definitely recommend staying here, especially if you have a large group, or are traveling with children.
Chuck and Tiffany were great hosts. They accommodated us for an early check-in and were very helpful. Everything about the home was as advertised, it was clean and had plenty of room for everyone. It's conveniently located with plenty of public transportation options, and the backyard was great for some afternoon or evening relaxation. I would definitely recommend!
Thanks Eric! Sorry I missed the deadline to leave you a review, but as I understand it, this will appear on your profile. Eric and his friends were excellent guests. They kept the place very clean and even kindly stripped the beds to make our work easier. I'd recommend him to any future host! Many thanks.

Tiffany and Chuck had been great hosts and enabled us to spend an awesome week!!! Although we arrived very late because we missed one piece of luggage at the airport, the whole family was waiting for us and we had nice conversation with all family members. The fridge was filled and even some bagels and cookies "waited". We were very happy because we all had the munchies. Tiffany and Chuck’s house was absolutely perfect for us (party of six). It was even better than we imagined by the photos – and those had been fantastic already… Tiffany made a tour with some of us through the house and explained all important items. Chuck told us about restaurants, supermarkets etc. in the neighborhood. Additionally, there was a well prepared folder with all important information about the house and the environment. Chuck even wrote an additional email to keep us informed about the fireworks at Prospect Park on New Year’s Eve. We could use four keys what was great for us six. The house was very clean and very well equipped. It is located very close to different subway stations so that we could easily move to Manhattan or the other boroughs and – of course – the airport. I could write a lot more but in short: Tiffany, Chuck, the kids and the house had been fantastic and we feel good in recommending them to all interested airbnb-friends. THANK YOU!!!!!
We had a great stay with our two small children at Tiffany and Chuck's house. The house was super clean, very well organized, and in a great location. It has great transit access but is also in the middle of some great Brooklyn neighborhoods. And our kids absolutely loved the backyard. We would definitely stay here again!
Chuck greeted us right on time and was very friendly. We had a crew of 4 kids and 4 adults and we all felt very comfortable and welcome instantly. This apartment is better in person than the listing suggests. They have renovated the downstairs bath and it is immaculate! A plus for us is the bathrooms both have heaters. The backyard is awesome and our kids had a blast. The neighbors have a trampoline that can be used in addition to the treehouse and fire pit. The neighborhood is nice too and us close to the subway and great shops and restaurants. I highly recommend Building on Bond for coffee in the morning (2 blocks) and for dinner as well. We truly felt at home here and I highly recommend this place to anyone with children.
Chuck and Tiffany's place was fantastic. Everything they wrote in their listing was spot on. The place was spotless and they provided everything from maps and things to do around town brochures to instructions on how to use the coffee maker. The bathrooms were clearly recently updated and the whole house was so comfortable for 8 of us to stay all weekend. If we were traveling with kids, this would be an ideal spot to stay, as they have everything available for little ones. Multiple subway stops are within a block or two, and the area is full of bodega's to grab a bagel sandwich at in the morning. I highly recommend staying at Chuck and Tiffany's - they were great hosts!
