Interaction with Guests
This is our home and we work during the day, but are present and available during the evenings and weekends should you have any questions or need recommendations. We have lived in the neighborhood for over 10 years, and are very knowledgeable about all it has to offer.
Cobble Hill is a charming Brooklyn neighborhood that is centrally located in NYC.
The apartment is nestled on a quiet street between Smith and Court Streets, the two main commercial streets of the neighborhood. On them you'll find lots of great restaurants of every variety, coffee shops, outdoor cafes, bookstores, movie theaters, boutiques, galleries, bars and all the necessary convenience stores. The neighborhood is known for its beautiful historic brownstones and tree-lined streets.
The apartment is a short walk to the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM to the locals), the new Barclay Center, Brooklyn Bridge Park, the Promenade (best views of lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty), and Downtown Brooklyn.
Manhattan is 10 minutes by subway, and the subway entrance is literally steps from our front door at the Bergen stop of the F and G subway lines. Taxis are also readily available on Smith Street.
Other Things to Note
We have a small dog. She is very friendly, well-behaved and lovable.
***You may have seen articles stating that Airbnb is illegal in NYC, but rest assured, our listing is 100% legal in the city.***
No pets, no smoking (except on the patio).
Other People: Do not bring in any other people unless we know upfront.
We ask that you wash and dry any kitchen items immediately after use - there's plenty of detergent to wash up or you can easily load the dishwasher. We recycle in our home.
We're easy going so you can come and go as you please, we'd just ask you keep the noise down if you're coming home in the late night hours during the week as we are up and off to work early!
We'd also prefer that you don't use the washing machine and dryer after 11pm and before 7am, just to keep the noise down.
We do not charge a deposit, but Guests and their invitees are responsible for all Covered Losses, as defined in the Airbnb Host Guarantee.
This was our second stay with Don and Chris. Once again, we felt really at home and enjoyed our stay. The room is very cozy, quiet and comfortable. The location is convenient. Don and Chris are great hosts!
Lovely, kind and accommodating hosts. Beautiful home. Very nice facilities (private bed and bath, access to backyard). Great, eclectic neighborhood with lots of fun shops, restaurants. Super convenient to transportation (F train on corner - quick trip into Manhattan).
I had a wonderful stay at Chris and Don's. I felt very welcome. The room and bathroom were exactly as described. The subway is only seconds away and it is easy to travel to Manhatten or even to the airport. I was travelling alone and felt very safe in the area, including at night when using the subway or walking through the neighbourhood. Chris and Don have been very kind and helpful. This was my first airbnb experience and definitely not my last.
Excellent stay with perfect hosts! This place is a gem in Brooklyn. Nice and quiet neighborhood and only 20 minutes subway ride to the heart of Manhattan. I highly recommend Chris and Don's place.
Chris and Don were fantastic hosts! They live in a great neighbourhood in a lovely home. Would happily stay with them anytime I'm in New York!
Don and Chris were superb hosts. Their Brooklyn townhouse is absolutely lovely, warm and comfortable. A bottle of water and a couple of chocolates made me feel most welcome, as did the fact that Chris whisked my bags down yo my room while Don was telling me about the house. I was in town for two weeks yo help my daughter with a new baby, so I did not take advantage of the great offerings of the area, but from experience, I know this to be one of Brooklyn's best neighborhoods for restaurants, shops and vibrant city life in a village atmosphere. Must mention that the private bathroom I had is great with a fabulous shower.
This was our third visit to Chris and Don's townhouse and we once again had a great experience there. The convenient location, the very quiet bedroom and warm hospitality can't be matched. We hope to be back for a stay soon.
We're a friendly outgoing couple who loves entertaining and meeting new people. New York has been our home since 2005 and we like to share our knowledge of the city with out-of-town friends and visiting guests. Don works in the commercial real estate field and Chris is entrenched in the world of advertising and healthcare technology. We are both originally from the Midwest and have traveled throughout the US and Europe, with a little Central America thrown in for good measure. We have a Norfolk Terrier who is a trained and registered therapy dog. She is very well behaved, mild-mannered and does not shed.
