Your flat is really cute and we spent beautiful days in there. Some of your plants were completely dry when we arrived. I took care for the other ones. In your fridge there were old food from previous guest. I am sorry because the last day we had no time to get rid of them.
Gabe was very welcoming and pleasant. He met me at the apartment and even helped me lug my huge suitcase upstairs then proceeded to give me everything I needed to know and lots of other helpful hints and suggestions.
The apartment is so lovely. Airy and extremely sunny and artistic with lots of plants and the coolest knick knacks and art to be found. It actually looks better than in the pictures.
I don't really like the neighborhood much to be honest. Feels a little unsafe at night but I'm a single female and I got through it just fine so you will too. Plus there are a ton of awesome soul food places around and you should definitely try them (especially Crown Fried Chicken).
All in all, great experience.
-10 mins from subway
-Check-in/Check out was very convenient
-Lots of light and nice plants
Wouldn't recommend the apartment to my friends, for these reasons:
-Building didn't have great security (no key needed to get in front door). This didn't really bother us, but might not sit well with others
-Apartment had not been cleaned well
-Toilet had not been flushed and there was #1 and #2 (!!) in the toilet)
-Hair on bathroom floor, tub and sink
-Dirty and flimsy shower curtain
-Our exchanges were minimal but always pleasant and warm until I gave Gabe a heads up that I was going to give a bad review. He threatened to tell the Airbnb community that I was a difficult and a constant bother. Would have left if we were there for longer and hadn't had such delayed flight getting into the city.
Gabriel was very quick in communication and made checking in and out very easy.
Unfortunately I would not recommend my friends to stay here - the apartment was very dirty and location was not ideal.
Clean, spacious, and totally special. The perfect way to bring a group of friends together for a weekend away ... that is still on the subway! We loved everything, and Gabe and his co-owners and friends were super flexible, helpful and gracious. Looking forward to coming back!
I was excited to stay here because of the plants. What was more awesome (and not mentioned), however, were all of the offbeat knick-knacks that Gabriel has collected. It's like a museum in here. I love it.
Oh, and it's also just a really beautiful apartment.
Would've been perfect had there been an AC... Luckily, there's a fan in the bedroom. :-)
I'd stay here again!
This place was great! We stayed 4 nights and there were 8 of us and the place accommodated us perfectly. The marina that the houseboat is located in, is only 3 blocks from the beach.
Booking was easy and Gabe and co owners were available to talk to and answered all of my question. Getting and returning the keys was a piece of cake...
I'd defiantly book this place again!
We enjoyed our stay without complaints and would recommend! Gabriel was great with sending an information packet with tips, restaurant recommendations, info about cabs.... everything we could ever want!
Gabe, was a fantastic host. Very easy going and accommodating. We didn't meet face to face, but he made our stay easy and fun. I felt at home!
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Gabriel and his guests were excellent. Very enthusiastic about going up and appreciative when I sent area and house info. And the place was left very clean. He is welcome back anytime!
Gabe is great! Friendly, warm accommodating, any guest would be lucky to stay in his home!
Gabe is my soul sister. I feel blessed to have known him for the past 5+ years (and also feel as though I've known him forever).
His apartment is a designer's dream and an ideal Brooklyn jumping-off point for any NYC vacation. If you do stay at Gabe's place I hope that you also get to meet this little bundle of dreamy joy. You will not regret it!
