The apartment is in a great location - close to many bars/restaurants and the subway to NYC - plus Dabo was extremely easy to coordinate check-in / answer questions. One note, is that if you are sensitive to street noise, you may want to bring ear plugs. BUT, I'd work past that and stay there. It's a great place and nicely decorated.
What an amazing place. This was my first booking on airbnb and it couldn't have been better. I almost don't want to review it--- lest the place become too popular for me to book.
Wonderful light. Quiet. Excellent curatorial taste. Good layout. SUPER clean. A bed to rival any hotel's claim to a good night's sleep. And Dabo was an amazing host, accommodating my last minute booking with ease.
DUMBO/Vinegar Hill is a wonderful neighborhood--- everything that makes Brooklyn the great place it is.
And an extra bonus for me--- the place overlooks my old middle school. Memories.
Thanks Dabo! I'll be back for sure.
You gotta love it when you rent a strangers house and some of the furnishings, decorations, and books are all things that you would have in your own home!
This was my first airbnb experience and it was perfection! Dabo was quick to respond with my initial inquiry and from there I couldn't have asked for a more perfect host! We were on a red-eye from SF and our flight arrived around 5:30 am. Getting bags, herding the kids, getting the car rental and driving to Brooklyn took less time than I expected and had us at Dabo's door an hour earlier than I had said. Dabo was courteous, patient and happily waiting for our arrival. Once greeted we had the opportunity to hang out with him and his son. Such a treat! We could have easily spent the entire weekend with them!
The loft was just as pictured, if not better. Clean, modern, complete with towels, dishes, wifi, and TOYS! As a parent of 2 this was awesome! The king bed was comfy and although my kids ended up in our bed, his son's rooms was just as clean and comfy.
The location was a quick and easy 3 block walk to the central DUMBO area and street parking was a breeze. Again, I couldn't have asked for a more perfect host, apartment and overall experience. TEAM DABO all the way!
What an amazing weekend! Dabo was just as fabulous as his condo. He was extremely attentive to all of our needs and questions. His response time was impeccable, he had all of the amenities you could want, and his art, furniture, and interior design were exquisite. We were in town celebrating my girlfriends birthday, and he went out of his way to have a chilled bottle of prosecco for us upon arrival. He also greeted us when we got there to make sure we had everything we needed and opened his home to us as if we were family. It is personal touches like that which really make the difference.
Dabo has (email hidden) for the airbnb community. The only thing we didn't like was having to leave. = )
Cheers to Dabo and thank you for everything!
Dabo and I work together at an advertising agency. As head of creative, you can expect his tastes in home decor to be rather exquisite. Dabo is responsive and accommodating, so you'd be hard-pressed to find a quiet, convenient, well-appointed space, with an amazing view of the city skyline.
