Hi. I'm from Philadelphia originally but have lived in New York for many years. I've also lived in Washington, London, Paris and Geneva. I've hosted through Airbnb several times and been a guest several times too. It's a great service.

Matt was very accommodating, especially since we booked his apartment last minute due to a host cancelling on us. The neighborhood is very charming and sweet, and the apartment is steps from the Promenade. Exactly as pictured. A lovely stay, highly recommended.
Matt was a thorough and excellent host. I rented the apartment for my best friend who lives in Paris, hates Brooklyn, is allergic to everything, and acts like Goldilocks when given a bed. Even he was 100% pleased with the cleanliness and comfort of the apartment and said he's never slept better in New York.
We had a fantastic stay in Matt's apartment and Brooklyn has now become my favourite neighbourhood in NY!
Very pretty and with amazing hip cafes and restaurants.
Matt is a very nice and welcoming host and the apartment itself was large, clean, comfortable and very nicely decorated.
Top marks for the expensive mattress, a godsend when jet lagged.. :-D
Would definitely recommend and we will be back as soon as possible.
Our experience was fantastic. Matt was prompt, friendly, and accommodating to our last minute needs. The apartment was perfect for the three of us, ( our 4yo), and the proximity of the Brooklyn promenade was a great value to our morning and evening walks; it was an epic week in the city. Very close to subway stations, great local shops, and we look forward to staying here again. Many thanks to our host Matt!

This place was the perfect location! Quiet, beautiful and it had and amazing view of the Manhattan only a few steps away. Matt was a generous host that made sure we were comfortable in the city with transportation, restaurants and the sites of the city, he answered any questions we had right away and with genuine effort. Highly recommended!
This is a great apartment--clean and airy, comfortable in all regards. The stairs are well worth the climb. Matt is the perfect host, responsive and helpful on logistics, neighborhood and transportation. The neighborhood is lovely, right across from the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Park, and an easy subway hop to Manhattan and other parts of Brooklyn.
Matt's delightful apartment gave my friend and me the chance to live the Brooklyn Heights vida loca, Edith Wharton-style. His gorgeous building is tucked into a tiny street of similarly breathtaking Gilded Age brownstones, steps from the Brooklyn Promenade and the new Brooklyn Bridge Park, the most scenic and romantic stroll east of Manhattan. Don't miss bouncing on the cool new Squibb Park pedestrian suspension bridge!
Nearby is charming Montague St. with its shops and cafés, as well as the leafy, walkable neighbourhoods of Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, and Carroll Gardens. Brooklyn has a growing rep as a foodie hub: saunter along Smith and Court Sts. and sample the diversity of exciting food and beverage options offered by the many independent boutiques and artisanal food outlets.
Great access to transit is only a few minutes' walk, with Lower Manhattan a single stop away. Nearby, too, in downtown Brooklyn, is the TKTS booth, offering same-day Broadway and off-Broadway show tickets at discounts of up to 50%. Matt's place is spacious and quiet, especially by NYC standards, with all the bells and whistles. The bedroom was large and the bed extremely comfy. The bathroom is compact, but cute and functional, and I can vouch for the comfort of the large couch if you need extra sleeping space. Overall, definitely worth the climb up all those stairs!
We didn't get to meet Matt, who was travelling himself, but connecting with him was quick and easy, and our questions were speedily answered. He even encouraged us to tuck in to any food we found in his kitchen, including the two delicious kinds of ice cream in his freezer!
The best part of staying at Matt's—and of staying with AirBnB in general, in my opinion—is that it allowed us to briefly experience life in a neighbourhood that is otherwise inaccessible to tourists. You can walk in the steps of real New Yorkers, test-drive their lives, and glimpse their diversions, distractions, and even their frustrations. It's a way to experience the reality of a place vs. the brochure version, so thanks to AirBnB and to Matt for making it a possibility. À bientôt!
Gracious! What a generous review! The Brooklyn Heights Association (and AirBnB) should hire you! Thanks Jane. It is much appreciated.
Great place to stay in Brooklyn Heights. Matt was a great host and communicated well. Apt was as described and location was perfect for us....close to everything we needed. One of the best views of the Manhattan skyline is only a few steps away. Only reason it is not a 5 star rating is the stairs....and as long as those aren't an issue for you, I would highly recommend it.
Matt's apartment was great, so spacious for NYC standards! Clean and very well put together with all the amenities of home, only his bed is way better the mine!
What a great location! Matt's apartment is only about half a block from the promenade on the East River with its stunning views of Manhattan and south to the Statue of Liberty. It's also an easy walk to shops, restaurants, and the subway into Manhattan. Matt is also a most welcoming, solicitous, and responsive host. He was very kind to offer that we might help ourselves to any food in the refrigerator. The apartment is comfortable and spotlessly clean if a bit spartan. The bed mattress is fantastic. Potential guests should be aware that this is a fifth-floor walkup. We didn't mind the stairs--we actually enjoyed the exercise--but some other guests might feel differently. All in all, should our travels bring us back to Brooklyn, we would certainly stay here again.
We highly recommend Matt as a guest. He communicated well, was friendly and very nice. He kept our place immaculate. We'd happily have Matt back to stay anytime.
Matt was a great guest to have and kept the apartment clean and organized. He also communicated his travel schedule with me throughout his stay which I very much appreciated. I highly recommend him as both a guest and a host.
Matt was a very pleasant guest - highly recommended!
