The place was great. Very clean. Good accomodations for a family of 4-5 people. Location was decent, near a subway stop. The only con might be the street and outside was not super fancy. It was ok. But nice inside, easy checkin, great communication. Thanks for the accomodations.

Me and 3 of my friends loved this place! Best airbnb experience ever. There was everything that we needed, including a washing machine and Apple TV, the apartment was very clean as well. It was always a pleasure to come back to the house and chill in the backyard. This Brooklyn location is awesome two: you can get anywhere without switching subway lanes and two different stations are really close by. There was no problem with parking in the street too: although there were always plenty of cars, we always managed to find a spot quickly. Thanks to Chris for being very responsive and an awesome host!

High recommendation for this classic Brooklyn home! Clean, comfortable and quiet. Easy walk to eateries and train / subway station.

Excellent house with several subway stations and shops nearby. Walking distance to Prospect park. We stayed with our 2 children and had a fantastic time.

Lovely house for our family with two kids. Communication with the hosts was excellent and they responded promptly anytime we had questions. House is in a bit of an industrial area and we couldn't find a lot of restaurants open in the evening, but there was a nearby pizza place with very friendly staff just a few blocks away. There were also several good bagel options for breakfast. Public transportation was very convenient.

The apt was exactly as the photos showed, zero surprises. We walked in to a clean, spacious (for Brooklyn!) apartment and had everything we needed. They were super responsive and helpful with any questions we had. Easy check in and out and a great value

We chose to rent this property 4.5 months prior to our arrival date in June for 12 nights. One of the major motivators was being in a well-located area of Brooklyn. It was not clear to us that the listing was on effectively a two-level house (with steep stairs), which was not a good fit for our young children (toddler and baby). Had we caught this, we would not have opted for it from the get go. The arrival was very disappointing. We were texted from the host the day before some basic information about the property (access code and how to operate some appliances) but there was no folder containing further explanation. We arrived at 3:30pm and when we entered, the house was very dark and extremely hot (no a/c). Even with all the blinds fully open, it was dark and hot like a cave. In the middle of the day, lights had to be turned on to see. Then, we had the unexpected discovery of the steep steps that were very dangerous for our toddler. Other things that did not help the first impression were dirty dishes left in the dishwasher and dishes washed in the morning in the drying rack not put away. Perishable food items had been left in the refrigerator (vegetables, yogurt, etc.). The porch, shown in the photos as usable was dusty and had constructions materials left on it and would have required a major cleaning effort to leave it a usable condition. The house was orderly but did not feel as if a cleaner had been there (more a once over). We were not happy with the rental as the photos and description clearly show the house differently so we contacted Airbnb to find out about our options since we had a relatively long stay there. Unfortunately, they did not assist and given the last minute nature, there were few alternatives available of an acceptable nature so we were put in a position to basically make the most of it. Here is the summary of the pros/cons of "Chateau Gowanus": PROS: --Location: Very convenient. Only two blocks to the subway (F & R) and Whole Foods Gowanus about 8 blocks away. Also walking distance of Park Slope area along with Cobble Hill & Boreum Hill with lots of great boutiques and restaurants. Also had one of the best pizzerias we've tasted in NYC (Table 87) which we ordered a couple times while staying there. --Children's Toys: This was a big plus and very appreciated for our kids (age 3 and 8 months). They really enjoyed the story books and toys. --Apple TV: lots of great apps/channels for movies, kids' shows, news, etc. and set up with surround sound. --Spacious, Well-equipped kitchen CONS: --Photos of rental not accurate: no daylight whatsoever. The photos shown of the property quite simply do not reflect the light in the actual home and state of maintenance. The light is akin to being in a cave. In broad day...
