En perfekt lägenhet i ett lugnt och tryggt område, nära tunnelbanan och allt man vill ha av en New York-visit och utforska stadsdelen Brooklyn. Lägenheten passade oss 4 kompisar perfekt, vi fixade frukostarna på hemmaplan och njöt av restauranger på kvällarna. David gav oss bra tips på bra restauranger och musikklubbar inom promenadavstånd. Om du vill ha ett bekvämt boende i ett lugnt område så är detta ett toppenställe!!
Hello Elisabeth, Thank you for the review. I'm going to leave the translation for english speakers- "A perfect apartment in a quiet and safe area, close to the subway and everything you want from a New York-visit and explore the borough of Brooklyn. The apartment suited the four of us perfectly, we fixed breakfast at home and enjoyed dining at restaurants in the evening. David gave us tips on good restaurants and music clubs that were within walking distance. If you want comfortable accommodation in a quiet area this is a great place."
Our family (mom, dad, 4-year-old, and 10-month-old) recently stayed in David's apartment for a month while repairs and renovations were done on our place, which is nearby. David was an extremely gracious host. He was kind and laid-back during our stressful relocation process, which really helped alleviate some of our stress. And the apartment was great. It's right across from an entrance to the park--I took the kids for long walks on the nature trails, and we loved opening our curtains every morning and seeing the green meadow and the fall leaves. Now that we're back in our home, we've stayed in touch with David, whom we're glad to have as a neighbor!

------MY airbnb experience--------
This Summer I traveled to Amsterdam for a large family gathering. My relatives came from Latvia, Australia, Germany, California, NY and England. There were 15 of us, staying in five places. The hosts and Airbnb made it possible. It was wonderful. Since then I wanted to become a member.
About me, I grew up in NYC, have lived in a number of places including Nice, Geneva, Adelaide, Vitoria, Brazil and California. I've traveled extensively. After graduating from college a friend and I went by bicycle through England, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Czech republic, Hungary, Russia, China, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Austrlia. I love being able to immerse myself in the local culture and see how people live. For this, Airbnb has been fantastic.
My interests include seeing live music, comedy and dance. I go to mostly local places near to where I live.
I work for a social network software company that allows individuals to become part of a community with local non profits.
