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.
Chris and Sam were great hosts and, a nice couple! They were helpful upon our first contact and all the way through our stay. They were quick to respond to any questions and communication was always easy.
The check in/access was very simple and all went well. Our hosts were accommodating with our delayed flight issues and ‘left the lights on for us’ since we arrived after dark! And, they allowed us to leave our luggage on site while we had lunch in Brooklyn one last time before our departing flight.
Chateau Gowanus was very clean and the beds and pillows were comfortable. There is some light traffic noise in the morning, but we always slept well and we were up and going early, so it wasn’t an issue for us. The kitchen is spacious and had all that we needed. (I love that they have a Juicer!)
The 5 minute walk to the subway was convenient and while the adjacent streets have commercial businesses we always felt safe walking home in the evening. The neighbors take care of their property and we often saw people strolling the sidewalks when we left in the morning.
Chris and Sam’s home is warm and inviting, with plenty of room for my husband, teenage daughter and me to relax after a long day of touring around NY. We have fond memories of our NY vacation and stay in Brooklyn and look forward to returning. We weren’t sure what to expect on our first AirBnB experience and after our stay at Chateau Gowanus, we’ll definitely do this again!
Thanks, and Best Regards to Chis, Sam And Mason!

The house felt really homey, has a great kitchen, confortable bed and is very convenient to the subway and grocery store. Christopher was an excellent host, always responsive and very kind. We highly recommend Chateau Gowanus!
We had a great stay at Chateau Gowanus. The house is fully equipped and is very comfortable. It's just a short walk to the subway and you can easily get to Manhattan or any other location. We haven't met our hosts, but Christopher stayed in contact with us and was very helpful. We would definitely recommend a stay in the house.
This place was so awesome. We needed a home base in Brooklyn with our 2-year-old, and Chateau Gowanus fit the bill. Comfy beds, kid-proofed rooms, terrific kitchen, and proximity to playground, trains, and Whole Foods. There is some street noise at night from trucks loading, but we just used white noise to cover it up and slept fine. Thanks to our hosts for providing a home that really felt like HOME!
We had a lovely time at Chris and Samantha's place in Brooklyn. The house has all the amenities for a family and then some!!! We especially appreciated the kitchen. There is a Whole Foods and F/R subway station just down the road. We would definitely stay here again on a trip to NYC.
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!
