No Film Shoots
We ask our friends to take off their shoes when they come into our home, it would be awesome if you did the same.
This was the perfect place for us. Close to everything we wanted to do. Easy walk to the trains that took us everywhere. Neighborhood was safe and quiet. We usually made it home late and were completely comfortable with the walk. The house is lovely and perfect for anyone visiting the area. Everything we expected and more was available. Chris and Sam were great hosts. They kept in contact with us throughout our stay and made sure we had everything. They were very good about communicating and helping any way they could. I would recommend that if this place is available, you grab it! We certainly will when we come back.
We had a wonderful stay at Chateau Gowanus. It is an extremely clean, organised and warm place. A lovely haven to relax in after a day out in NYC! Christopher was extremely responsive and helpful, a very charming host. It has great transit access and is close to good playgrounds. Great for families with kids!
Our stay in Chris and Samantha's place was amazing! It is very clean, quiet, fully stocked, in a great family friendly neighborhood, and very close to every bus or train you would need to use. We look forward to staying there again soon, and highly recommend it!
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour Chez Christopher et Samantha.
La maison est grande et très bien équipée... on se croirait chez soi.
Le quartier est très bien fréquenté. Nous rentrions le soir avec 2 enfants sans problème.
La maison est bien placée (30 minutes de métro du centre de Manhattan.
Seul petit point négatif, des camions circulent très tôt le matin en semaine du fait de l'entrepôt qui est situé en face mais avec des boules quies, aucun problème !
Merci à Christopher et Samantha qui ont répondu très vite aux mails que nous avons envoyé.
Chris and Samantha did a great job of connecting with us and making sure everything was in order before, during and at the end of our stay. Thier home was perfect--clean, comfortable and in a safe, walkable neighborhood (Gowanus). We had tons of room for our party of 4, and for our first Airbnb experience, it could not have gone better!
Would definitely recommend staying here if you're visiting Brooklyn! Thanks again Chris, Samantha and Mason!
Perfect place for a family to stay in new York - as our girls said this just like home - very convenient location the F and G line get us anywhere.
The area is quite and a really nice whole foods located 7 min walking
Great first air bnb experience
What a wonderful place to stay! Our family of four (including a baby and a three year old) was very comfortable. The house is about four doors down from a playground, which was also a big hit. Chris and Samantha provided everything we needed, and left some great recommendations for local places to go. We would definitely stay here again.
