We are both artists: a writer/non-profiteer and a filmmaker/documentary editor. We love biking, traveling, and exploring the wilds of Brooklyn's 85 neighborhoods.
Christa was an absolutely wonderful guest. She left my apartment super clean. I'd love to have her back!
Great guests. Respectful and knew how to enjoy our little (no frills) island. Hope they visit again!!

It was a pleasure to host Christa. She took good care of the apartment and left it clean and in great shape.
I never actually met christa - mostly because it was her partner who stayed at my place and I was already gone when they checked in (my sister let them in) BUT all my communication with her was great and my apartment was immaculate when I got back. I would absolutely trust them to stay at my place again. I trusted her completely from our first email and I have very good instinct.
Christa was a great guest at Pirate's Cove Caboose. We hope she will join us again!
Christa was a pleasure to host and anyone would be happy to have her as a guest
Christa was an exceptional guest. She was quick to respond to emails, very flexible in terms of setting everything up and left my place in perfect condition besides. All of this said, Christa is extremely sweet and has a fascinating story to tell. I feel like we could have gone right out for coffee and talked for hours. Plus, she left bacon in the fridge!!! Now c'mon, if that ain't a perfect guest, I don't know what is.
I always jump at the chance to stay at Christa & Ali's! Their apartment is spacious, well furnished, has central AC, a washer/dryer and the sweetest cat (seriously, she gives the best cuddles!)! The apartment is in a GREAT location - close to many trains and a block from Gorilla coffee (a Gyllenhaal favorite: (website hidden)_jake_gyllenhaal_ape_shit_fo.php). I
Christa and Ali are fantastic friends and fabulous hosts, and I can't recommend them highly enough as hosts or guests. We've known each other since they came to New York via the Pacific Northwest years ago. We've been camping and to Las Vegas together, and we've watched each others cats when we've been away. They're the kind of folks who always bring more food than they need so they can share. Christa and Ali bring a welcoming Portland embrace to the city--you won't find much friendlier people in New York. (They also have a robust sense of boundaries and privacy, if you're staying in their extra room!!) Their cute and exceptionally-roomy-for-New-York apartment is in a fabulous location, just a few minutes' walk from Atlantic Terminal and all the transit options in the world, and the bars and restaurants in walking distance are fantastic. Highly recommended!
