Our family of six stayed at Craig and Anita's apartment for three days and it was absolutely amazing. Clean, spacious, nice view with subway and supermarket quite close. Craig was super friendly, had good tips and lots of information ready for us. He'd even provided us with some basic food. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Craig and Anita's apartment was perfect for our party of 5 (four adults, one toddler) for our friend's wedding weekend. The location in DUMBO is ~2 blocks from a park with a great playground, and it was also conveniently located for our trips to downtown Manhattan and into Fort Greene. Like most of New York, the area can be noisy due to car traffic, but the sound-proofing in the apartment is amazing--we couldn't hear the freeway traffic or the neighbor's barking dog once we were inside. Craig met me to give me the keys to the apartment, and he was a great host, taking the time to answer any questions I had. We all enjoyed staying in the apartment, particularly our 1.5-year-old who had a blast playing with all of the toys!
Craig and Anita are wonderful hosts! We found the location to be the perfect spot for us to attend a wedding in Brooklyn and go touring around the city. Our group included our married friends, my son and me. The apartment provided ample space for all of us to have our own privacy, as well as a nice area for us to gather at the end of the day. Craig checked in with us before our arrival, had goodies for us in the refrigerator, and had a binder filled with good information for places to eat, how to find the subway and other neighborhood helpful hints. He also checked to make sure that all was going well for us during our stay, which was much appreciated. We would definitely stay here again, and give our highest recommendation!
The reservation was canceled 58 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Highly recommended - both Host and Apartment!
We received lots of good, friendly and welcoming communications from Craig and Anita before and after we arrived and great tips on places to eat and things to do in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
Apartment is lovely with great view and easy access across New York and also good walking options. Again, made to feel like a welcome guest.
The appartement was great and is well located. Craig was a very nice host and had a lot of insider information for us. Check-in and check-out were easy and very uncomplicated. Altogether a perfect location for a stay in New York. Hopefully we will come back soon.
Pas de surprise concernant l'appart, il est super, très agréable et surtout spacieux, nous étions 2 couples et avons vraiment appréciés les 2 grandes chambres et 2 salles de bains!!! Rien a dire non plus niveau propreté. Concernant sa situation, parfait pour dumbo et brooklyn, à proximité du métro pour se rendre dans Manhattan. Par contre l'immeuble se situe au milieu d'un carrefour, donc surprenant dans un 1er temps , pas vraiment de vie de quartier , mais nous sommes des provinciaux!!!!!! Un peu bruyant , c'est le seul reproche que l'on pourrait faire. Par contre, Craig est au top!!! Il est super disponible, répond à toutes les questions (mail) donne plein d'adresses, bref on a envie d'y retourner et c'est tout...
