Hi I'm a British Project Manager living in Brooklyn, Williamsburg.
Matthew was a great host, very friendly and helpful. He had to pass by for a minute one day (to pick up something) and even informed me way in advance, so I wouldn't be surprised. The flat is just great. It's big, clean, beautiful, with a great terrace and perfect location: 3 blocks away from the subway, line L, 15 minutes away from Manhattan. Wifi works perfect, tv as well, and there's a cool sofa that becomes a bed if needed. Room upstairs is big too (pics show exactly how the flat is). The area is very cool, with a couple of supermarkets open 24hs, some bars and restaurantes. I stayed there for 4 nights and I can say that I'd do it again if I go back to NY. Host + flat, just a great combination.
Matt is my upstairs neighbor and I rented his apartment for a week for my mother-in-law to stay. She had a wonderful time. The apartment is clean and well-kept, and fully supplied with everything you would need. The view of the Manhattan skyline at night is gorgeous (I'm jealous!) and the terrace would be lovely in warm weather. She will definitely stay here again.
I booked this place for my parents who were visiting and both they and I loved it. It was exactly as Matthew described: comfortable, sunny, nice big windows. This neighborhood is fantastic too. Quiet and safe but lots of great bars and restaurants nearby. The proximity to the L makes it super easy to head to Bedford Ave. and Manhattan. We will definitely be booking this place again.
Matt, thank you for letting us use your place. It was exactly as described and just what we were looking for. There was plenty of space and all the amenities listed were there. The apartment was clean and it was easy to communicate with you as well. Great neighbourhood and really close to the L line so it was really easy to get into Manhattan if need be. Thank you again , we really enjoyed our stay.
Matt's place was great and even nicer than represented. My daughter and I stayed there for four days. The apartment was very clean and spacious. The wireless worked flawlessly, and it was such a treat to have the terrace. The only drawback to the place was the four floor walkup, but we knew about that ahead of time, so it's just my fault for being out of shape! We always wanted to stop at the 3rd floor! The apartment has very close access to the subway with just a few stops until Manhattan, but Williamsburg is also awesome.
Sage down the street is very good. I would suggest skipping Gwynnett St (restaurant and bar) around the corner -- we found it overpriced, pretentious and overrated. If you're there on the weekend, take a walk down Graham to Sel de Mer. Awesome brunch with incredible Bloody Mary.
I absolutely recommend this apartment for a wonderful stay in New York.
Me and a friend stayed here for 3 weeks and it was fantastic. The train line it's on is very reliable. There are loads of good restaurants, bars, cafés within a short walking distance. Matt was very quick to respond when we had any queries and was very easy going. The place itself is also great. Accurately represented in the pictures.
Appartement magnifique, super terrasse avec vue sur Manhattan, très sympa de se poser après une longue journée de marche dans New York.
Quartier paisible et sympa avec tout ce qu'il faut au niveau des commerces et métro à 1 min à pied (10 min de manhattan sans changement)
Merci à Matthew pour son accueil !
We stayed for one week in matts apartment & it was a great place with fantastic views, nice restaurants & great nightlife!
Matt was nothing but nice and was always a txt msg away if we needed to ask anything.
The apartment itself is amazing with a great veranda too.
I would highly recommend matts apartment to anyone.
Matthew is a perfect, gracious host. He met us at the apartment got us set up and made sure everything was up and running. A lovely apartment, great location with a beautiful view of the Manhattan skyline!
Great location in wonderful Williamsburg.
If you go there, do yourself a favour and visit Sage, the restaurant on the nearby corner. Great combination of Thai, American and Gourmet. Never thought I would use those three words in the same sentence.
2 minutes from metro, which in 15 minutes takes you to Manhattan.
We enjoyed the apartment, which is big enough for a family of 4, clean and has a great terrace. Nice and feel safe neighborhood.
Matt was helpful and easy to get a hold of.
On the negative side - if you bring heavy luggage. You need to take the stairs to 3 floor. No elevator. However, Matt helped my daughter, who arrived earlier than the rest of us, and Matt carried her luggage. Thanks!
I would definently go there again.
Matthew was a very friendly guest. We will recommend him for everyone!
Good tenant, respectful. left the apartment clean and in order.
