We booked this apartment that had the most wonderful view over Greenpoint and Manhattan. Well located, close to Bedford and McGuiness. Only thing that was not good was that Fabio let me know just 1 day before arrival that the apartment only had 1 bedroom instead of 2, that was on the description. Since we came to work and I specifically look for 2 separate bedrooms, I was quite upset.
Otherwise everything worked just fine. Fabio was on point with everything else. And I could definitely recommend this stay.
We spent two nights as Fabio's place. And it was absolutely brilliant place. Free parking was one of the first things we looked into since it's NYC, Fabio has a private spot in the parking lot right behind the building. The furniture are carefully planed as where they are. The view is also astonishing, looking out from the master bedroom and the living room, as well as the balcony.
I highly recommend this place and the host is very helpful and nice.
We made the perfect choice with this apartment. It's calm and spacious yet instantly homely and the views are insane, stunning! All the excellent reviews are well-founded. Fabio and Bruna were super helpful and answered queries quickly but to be honest we didn't have that many, it was so easy to live here. We stayed for a month and loved the neighbourhood - great vibe, great bars, coffee shops, restaurants, gig venues (check out Rough Trade, some incredible acts here), a wealth of brilliant vintage clothes and furniture shops, indy cinemas etc. It's also quick and easy to get into Manhattan on the L train. There's also a toy room in the building, next to the gym, which our 2 year old daughter loved playing in. And loads in the neighbourhood for kids to do too. The doormen in the building were also very helpful and friendly and the other residents too, we just felt really at home. Thanks Fabio!
Fabio was good with getting back to us. Apartment was as described and great location
Fabio's apartment is lovely and it really does have one of the best views of Manhattan, further enhanced by the green vista of McCarren Park. Our group of four middle-aged women stayed in the apartment for almost three weeks. Both Fabio (who is usually overseas) and his local assistant, Thiago, were friendly and helpful. When I first inspected the apartment, the doorman who buzzed me in was quick to point out that subletting was frowned upon and that we couldn't make any requests of the front desk. Fabio had agreed to give us two sets of keys during our stay but unfortunately the people who checked out before us returned their keys to the doormen (don't do this!), meaning we couldn't access those keys and had to make do with only one set. I thought it would be a problem because of the doormen situation, but they continued to buzz us in when necessary. As long as you don't make a fuss and don't bother the other residents, they will be civil. Note: this is not a building for parties!
Pros: Stunning view, quiet location, easy access to transport, park across the road, great neighborhood.
Cons: Doormen and some residents seem to resent subletters. Furniture is a bit chipped and showing signs of wear. There was a plumbing emergency and the plumbers told us not to drink the water that came out of the faucet in this building, because the pipes were not good – best to use a water filter jug instead.
Wy wife and I stayed here with our 8-month old kid and my parents. And we could not have loved it more. The apt is gorgeous, the views breathtaking, the location is supercool and the hosts incredibly friendly and accommodating.
We lived in Williamsburg for years, so for us it was a no-brainer. But if you're on the fence about staying in Brooklyn, do not worry. You'll be within a 5 minute walk to a one stop subway ride to the city or a 10 minute cab ride into the Lower East Side. Not to mention Williamsburg is packed with awesome bars and restaurants.
Plus, an awesome park with a running track is literally across the street.

About the Host, Fabio
I'm from Brazil and I live in NY since 2006. I worked in the financial market for 17 years to reach really one goal: Fund my dreams :-)
This apartment in NY is one of my dreams come true. I really love to travel around the world for surfing, snowboarding and tastings of wine and food. Now I'm into the lodging and wellness segments as an entrepeneur, building boutique hostels with a focus on wellness.
