We truly enjoyed our stay at Marisa and Colin's apt. We appreciated that they have kept the rate accessible, it is more than reasonable for the space offered, especially when compared with hotel rates in Brooklyn, never mind Manhattan! We found it to be conveniently located at about a 10-minute walk to several subway lines, and others were easily access by a longer walk or cab ride. Getting into Manhattan, esp Lower East Side was a breeze. We also enjoyed walking around the surrounding neighborhoods. Marisa and Colin's apt is probably best suited for no more than two people traveling together as the second bedroom is small with a pullout sofa bed. We traveled as a couple and found it to be comfortable and perfect for our needs. They have decorated it with a wonderfully curated minimal collection of flea market finds, art and books. A wonderful hybrid between hotel and home stay.
Très bon séjour chez Marisa et Colin, qui se sont montrés très disponibles.
Quartier populaire avec bon accueil du voisinage, prêt à vous aider. La station de métro "Jay St Metro tech" est à 10 bonnes minutes de marche.
Bref, très satisfaits de notre séjour !

Very good! It's a decent walk to The metro, but unbeatable in terms of price/quality. Marisa immediately send me all I had to know and was very responsive.
We loved our trip to New York and felt comfortable at Marisa and Colin's place. The apartment is a easy walk to subway and it was easy for us to get to anywhere we wanted. Marisa was very quick to respond to my questions and any concerns. Overall a great experience.
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour chez Marisa et Colin. Ils sont disponibles, rassurants et flexibles notamment sur les horaires...Ce sont de très bons hôtes! Les photos correspondent à la réalité: l'appartement est élégant, spacieux et nous ne manquions de rien. De plus, le jardin privé est vraiment sympa (le soleil était de la partie!). La station de bus la plus proche se situe à moins de 2 minutes à pied et la station de métro à environ 15 minutes à pied de l'appartement. Encore merci pour tout!
We had a great stay in Marisa and Colin's home. They are available, reassuring and flexible especially on schedules... Good hosts! Photos correspond to reality: the apartment is elegant, spacious and we lacked nothing. Furthermore, the private backyard is really nice (and the sun was there!). The distance to the nearest bus station is 2 minutes walking and the train station approximately 15 minutes walking. Again, thank you for everything!
Everything was great!
Colin and Marisa's place is a beautiful, cosy little place. Great kitchen. We found the little extras - tea bags! music system! - really helped us relax in the evenings, because we were in and out of town pretty quickly with work, and really busy while we were there.
The park right across the street was also nice, despite the weather.
My husband and I stayed at Marisa and Colin's place for one month while we were looking for a rental apartment in the city. Their home has a lot of character, is cozy and has everything you need to make you feel comfortable.
Unfortunately, we were not able to use its gorgeous backyard because of the tough winter in New York this year. It's worth it to spend some time there for sure!
Marisa is the perfect host. The heating system had a small breakdown and her responsiveness was amazing. She even bought extra heaters and made someone to bring them while the issue was fixed. She was permanently reachable, which it gives you confidence.
Moreover, she is very friendly, always ready to offer you an useful recommendation about the city from the distance. She really cares about their guests and our whole experience was great.
The townhouse is located close to Downtown Brooklyn and Dumbo, only two train stops away from Union Square. However, the distance to the nearest train station is 15 minutes walking. If you don't mind to walk a little bit or take a cab at night, it is simply perfect!
Marisa was a great host even from states away! The house was perfect! Very clean and great location. Marisa provided my husband and I with lots of helpful info as to how to get around and local places eat! She was also flexible with check out times.
Marisa and Colin are experienced airbnb hosts and were perfect as guests. They were prompt and reasonable and fun to host!
Marisa and Colin are lovely couple who, as new parents, really seemed to soak in the peace and quiet here. It was a pleasure to have them stay in the casita we call Upper Stream. We hope they return soon and often.
I only wish I could have met Marisa and Colin in person! Marisa and I communicated mostly by email. Being new to AirBnB she was a great help and patient as I learned the system. When I returned to the house, everything was just as we'd left it and the neighbors had only good things to say. Thanks to Marisa and Colin - I hope we cross paths again!
Although I did not have the chance to meet up with them face to face - they were very nice in any and all communications. They also took excellent care of our studio and I hope that they will come back to visit us some day.
Marisa was an excellent, respectful, and trustworthy, guest. She left the apartment in perfect condition and was delightful to interact with. I would be very happy to host her again!
This is my pied-a-terre of choice whenever I visit NYC! It's a great two-bedroom apartment with a darling little back yard that's the perfect spot for sipping your morning coffee! It's also across the street from a super cool park, so if by chance you bring your kid(s), there's plenty of room for them to run around. Fort Greene park is also just a hop, skip and a jump away and is filled with hip Brooklynites and their offspring.
North Elliot Place is right smack dab in the middle of two of the coolest, most up-and-coming neighborhoods in Brooklyn: Fort Greene and Dumbo. My two favorite neighborhood restaurants are each within walking distance: The General Greene (in Fort Greene, go figure) has the most incredible bacon (er, meat-candy) and Vinegar Hill Kitchen (in Dumbo) has inventive cocktails and delicious, sustainable comestibles.
If you want to head into the city, the subway is only a 15 minute walk away and then just a few stops into downtown Manhattan. On your way to the subway, you'll pass through downtown Brooklyn- keep an eye out for the landmark Junior's Cheescake, which is not to be missed.
This apartment is really cozy and would be perfect for two friends, one or two couples, or even a family of four with young kids who don't mind sharing a room. The bed in the master bedroom is super comfy and the guest bedroom leads out to the aforementioned backyard.
I've known Marisa for almost 10 years and she is an honorable and trustworthy gal. She actually owns the whole building and is a great landlord and an incredibly reliable super to her tenants.
If you're familiar with the city or just looking for the real-deal Brooklyn experience, look no further. Enjoy! And seriously- go get the bacon at The General Greene. It will change your life.
