Rebecca and Jacob's apartment was lovely. Less than a minute away from the subway station & right next to convenience stores and restaurants, this place is in a lovely neighborhood. The apartment itself is super cosy and full of character. Very neat and clean. The kitchen had everything we needed. The washer dryer came in very handy. Rebecca was very friendly, prompt and responsive. It was a pleasure staying at Rebecca's and we would come back here in a heartbeat.
Lovely apartment and lovely hosts.
My friend Catherine and I truly enjoyed our a week end spent at Jacob and Rebecca's place. The pictures on their profile don't give it justice, it's so much nicer. Very very comfy beds and super nice vibe in this place. Prime location, lots of good restaurants around and not far away from Manhattan. Hosts allowed us to have an early check in and late check out, very cool of them. Unfortunately, we didn't get to meet them but communication with host was very easy and pleasant. Jacob was very helpful , he even sent me a map with directions how to get to his place. Your cosy apt brought that little extra to our week end in Brooklyn :-)
I stayed in Rebecca's white room for a month and both the apartment and Jacob's company were great if not amazing! Everything is really spacious, well-maintained and clean and it felt like a home from the first minute. I mean, apart from the fact that everything was mine to use (kitchen appliances, dishwasher, Washing and drying machine, books, ...) the place is also decorated in a way that i felt at home right away. And the bed, my god the bed: the most evil thing in terms of Wasting time! Just couldnt get up in the morning cause it's so nice!
About Jacob: felt like i knew him for years - very easygoing, funny, welcoming, sociable, and the right mix between entertaining and chill :)
Neighborhood: perfect in terms of location and access to public transport!! Not too busy but plenty of restaurants and bars around. Highly recommanded!
Great place in a hip spot. Close to subway. Highly recommend this place.
We (4 of us) stayed at Jacob and Rebecca's lovely home while on vacation to see the sights in NYC area. They were both very responsive on anything we needed before and while we were there. Rebecca gave us a great list of restaurants within walking distance; Cubana Cafe and Taro were delicious! The apartment was very clean, cozy, quiet and perfect for our stay. We couldn't have found anything better!! Would definitely stay with them again!
Rebecca took care of a very smooth check in and was very nice. The house was very cozy and nicely decorated. Super nice. The neighbourhood was to cool for school, the hous itself also. It was clean and we used the kitchen. Overall, we had an amazing stay!!
Rebecca & Jacob have the perfect little place. They were welcoming guests and I immediately felt right at home. The place is not only clean and tidy, but it's sweet and homey as well. They are plenty of books and music everywhere. The kitchen has everything one could need and the place is REALLY quiet and private. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept on in a long time. Since I have family nearby, I will absolutely be recommending this lovely place for everyone I know. Thank you both so much for everything.
My stay with Rebecca and Jacob was my first ever through Airbnb and after that there can be no turning back. Rebecca (whom I had contact with) was a wonderful host. The few days I was there were absolutely problem free, communication was fast, friendly and efficient and our contact was generally warm and Rebecca is very trustworthy.
The appartment itself was very very nice, clean and spacious and in a wonderful neighbourhood. I'd definitely stay with Rebecca and Jacob again!
We've have visited NYC 4 times and thanks to Jacob & Rebecca's home this was the best and most comfortable stay yet!
The Brownstone is spacious & clean: large living room, kitchen, bedrooms, and bath. Reliable internet.
Most importantly you're a 3 minute walk to the subway, and 15-20 ride into the core of Manhattan (1 subway, no transfers). Walking distance to: prospect park, new Barclay's Brooklyn Nets Center, groceries, restaurants and shopping.
Only downside could be a lack of TV, however, that wasn't an issue for us....we don't have a TV in our own home, plus we had our ipad and the place has internet.
Why stay in an overpriced and undersized hotel in Times Square when you can enjoy this unique chance to stay in a beautiful home in Brooklyn.
We didn't get the chance to meet Jacob & Rebecca in person, as they were traveling. However, they were super responsive/accessible and helpful via email, phone etc....
