Just livin the dream, BK styleeeee
I had a wonderful time staying here, although I didn't realize there would be someone living on the bottom half of the house. The house is also surrounded by neighbors so it is not as remote as it appears. Still, the finishings are great and the open plan style kitchen made it perfect for entertaining, and the huge deck was perfect for sun bathing. Only a short drive down to Phoenicia for some fun tubing times, and cafes/bars.
We had a great birthday weekend getaway at Todd & Fryske's! They had everything you could need for a hot summer day already in the place, box fans, beach chairs a great outdoor space it was the best. I stayed with 6 people and there was more then enough room for everyone. I would definitely return if I am ever in the area again.
Thanks Fryske and Todd!
Fryske & Todd were wonderful guests.
They made everything possible to welcome us the best they can in their sweet home in Brooklyn.
They have a very very nice flat, we felt immediately well inside and the decoration is lovely, and of the course the garden is such a plus !
It's perfectly situed in Park Slope, a district of Brooklyn we discovered, and which was perfect for us, you have everything you need (subways, restaurants, shops, nice houses, parks...) after a long day of visiting in NYC.
To resume, it's a perfect place to discover NYC, we would come back with pleasure if we want to visit NYC another time !
We stayed here in January and it was the perfect snowy mountain retreat from NYC! The chalet is a lovely space and cozy enough for 8 people without feeling crammed yet enough room to have your own privacy as well. Being a food-centric couple, we especially loved the open kitchen where we were able to gather around and cook together with all our friends. Another wonderful amenity was the fireplace--we were all obsessed!
The chalet is situated perfectly in an intimate area but still very close to Hunter Mountain--about 10 minutes by car.
We truly enjoyed our experience here and we're hoping we can make it back here sometime in the summer to take advantage of all the hiking trails in the area and of course, that huge deck with a bbq grill!
Thanks Fryske & Todd!
Fryske and Todd have a beautiful apartment! It was clean, comfortable, stylish and in a great neighborhood. We really enjoyed exploring all of the restaurants (there is a great Thai place right around the corner). We also like to cook and the kitchen comes well stocked with utensils and spices etc. The apartment is less than two blocks from the subway and parking was no problem over the weekend. It's safe to say that we will be back!
The apartment was exactly as depicted on Air BnB: beautifully decorated, wonderful hardwood floors, comfortable, plenty of dish ware and cook ware in the gourmet kitchen and even a Christmas tree to make the visit perfect for our Christmas in New York. The three of us were comfortable staying there and we were able to easily host our children for Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas brunch. Very convenient to everything we wanted to do, wonderful neighborhood with great restaurants and grocery stores -- Union Market is unbeatable and Konditori (Swedish coffee shop) has pear caramel croissants "that will change your life". Si*Se is adorable and easy to care for -- we have never seen a cat take pills out of our hands before.
Thank you Todd and Fryske -- we would love to stay in your place again when we return to NY.

Response from Todd&Fryske:
Bill & Theresa, we loved having you stay in our home! We are happy to accommodate you anytime if schedules work. Thank you for the delicious pralines and caramels too... what a sweet surprise! All Best, Fryske & Todd
The reservation was canceled 10 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The house was great and we had a wonderful time! Todd & Fryske were wonderful with the accommodations and we had everything we needed. Cooked a lot of great meals and made some amazing s'mores over the fire. Definitely want to go back soon!
Fryske, Todd, and Si*Se are wonderful hosts! We were in Brooklyn for a wedding celebration and didn't spend much time sitting still, but really enjoyed having a cozy place to come back to. The location was perfect with access to the subway and lots of great restaurants and the accommodations were clean, comfortable, and friendly. Thank you!
Lovely and very tidy apartment with such a cute cat! They even left me some coffee and cream to have coffee in the morning! I will look forward to returning soon!
Fryske and Todd were really nice guest, very tidy and quiet, and very interesting people to speak with. I would recommend them to any airbnb host.
Fryske has been a great friend for a few years now and she is a really conscious, beautiful woman. Her husband Todd is a wonderful guy and their space in Brooklyn is really charming, comfortable with an artistic flair. I have no doubt that anyone would be warmly welcomed and enjoy both the space and the hosts very much.
What can I say but only the most amazing things about these two! Both of them are very dear to me. Their home is beautiful and in a great neighborhood. It is a warm lovely home and you will love it! Both of them have impeccable taste, are gracious, welcoming, and fun. I couldn't think of better hosts!
I've known Todd for several years. Not only was he the best "landlord" ("host" seems a more apt term) I've ever had in my life, but my friends were envious of the stories I told of how responsible, conscientious and helpful he was as a host-as-friend. The way we related to each other really dissolved the wall that sometimes arises in the context of landlord/housing host. The result was that the place I rented from him felt more like a home than anywhere I'd ever rented before. I enjoyed having him over for dinner parties and we have become close friends. Since he met Fryske he has been happier than ever and while I've not stayed at his property since they met, I can tell that she enhances his ability to create that magical home environment for people. I've loved getting to know her as well. I truly believe you can't find a better host/landlord duo than these two incredible people. Meet up with them for coffee and you will see what I mean!
Todd and Fryske have created a fabulous home in the middle of one of Brooklyn's most exciting neighborhoods.
The home is elegantly appointed and warm and cozy. You can't go wrong staying here. Quality home, quality people with integrity and style ... it will be a great place for you to stay.
I have known Fryske for years now and am a flag waving supporter of this gal. She and her fiance, Todd have made such a sweet home you'd feel very fortunate upon staying there. They are a sweet and loving couple who take special care to make the things in their home reflect their values and desire to live a conscientious and peaceful life. Plus their place is GORGEOUS and conveniently located to tons of restaurants and bars. Even a few super hip music venues!
