So much charm and care - both from the host and from the apartment - a wonderful stay at the castle - thank you
Chris was an amazing host. He had a lovely apartment in an awesome Brooklyn neighborhood with quick access to good food and transportation into the city. He was very knowledgeable about where to go and what to do.
I also really appreciated the tiny details he left for us, little bottles of shampoo and soap, books on New York City and maps. He really thought of everything and was very, very clean.
I highly recommend a stay with him. You won't find a better deal (or view) in NY than this!
Christopher has a very nice apartment in a beautiful Brooklyn neighborhood. We had no trouble getting around the city. His place is pretty close to subways and you can get anywhere in a reasonable time. This was my first AirBnB experience and I will definitely use this site again in the future. He provided us with everything you would need. We had keys to come and go as we pleased. Overall, we had a great experience and had a blast exploring the city. Thanks for everything!
Chris's place is located in a convenient and quiet neighborhood in Brooklyn. The apartment is beautiful and was immaculately clean when I arrived. I would highly recommend Chris as a host.
Private room, comfortable, very tastefully decorated. Access to the rooftop with an amazing view of Manhattan! Quiet and nice neighborhood. The metro is a ten minute walk. Christopher is a discreet and very friendly host. He will be happy to answer your questions.
I had a wonderful time in the cutest flat of the city (forget Park Avenue!). Also a great neighbourhood and good café downstairs with amazing sandwiche and perfect train connections. Felt right at home, thank you, Christopher!
L'appartement est superbe. Encore mieux qu'en photos.
The appartment was great! Better than in the pictures!
Christopher was very polite, helpful and organized. The room was fresh and clean .. the rest of the house very artistic and unique! 5 minutes away from the subway to Manhattan in 20 minutes! very quiet and livable!
Christopher was so incredibly kind and the perfect host, with helpful suggestions of what to do in the neighborhood and everything was so organized and easy. We didn't see much of him, but when we did it was a delight. Thanks so much for the hospitality and thanks even more for the design inspiration!
Came to New York with about 1 day to move in, my friend bailed on me - turned to Airbnb and found Chris. He's fantastic. His place felt like home - super stylish, very comfortable. I thought when I read "pull out couch" i was doomed but it is the most comfortable bed - all is clean, all is fantastic. LOVED every minute of my stay. Thank you Chris!!!!!! A+++
