Matt was super communicative and Checking-in and out couldn't have been easier. The location is outstanding, close to the metro and grocery store and tons of restaurants and coffee shops. I would definitely stay here again, can't beat the deal.
The apartment is in a great location - just a couple of mins away from Prospect Park subway and the park itself. There a number of great shops and bars within walking distance or a short train journey away. The train to Manhattan only takes 15-20 mins too, so it really is an ideal location. The flat itself was fine for us - we spent most of our time out and about anyway. The one downside was the noise - the station is right outside the window - so if you're a particularly light sleeper it may not be idea. Our host Matt was a great guy - really accommodating (he was kind enough to stay up late to let us in) and helpful (the Wifi was down, but he got it fixed immediately and on New Years Day!). All in all, good value for money in a great location, perfect for exploring New York.
I had quite a long stay in Matt's apartment and it was perfect for my trip. There was an issue with the heating and Matt wasted no time to help me get it fixed. Very accommodating!
Great neighbourhood and less than 1 minute walk to subway. Just perfect. Thanks Matt!!
Matt was an extremely gracious and accommodating host. He was very flexible about arrival and departure times, and made sure to make it convenient for me. Because I was new to NYC and didn't have the hang of the subway system yet, I was an hour late to meet him on my arrival, and he didn't even bat an eye. He also gave me the option to check out later.
And while my strict diet didn't allow me to take advantage, Matt generously offered the various foodstuffs and beer that were in the apartment.
I didn't realize that the apartment was so close to the Prospect Park subway station: this had its advantages and disadvantages. It was certainly convenient to be so close on cold nights when returning from Manhattan, but the sound from the subway was quite noticeable. It didn't end up bothering me too much, but it was a nice touch that Matt provided earplugs by the bed!
The temperature of the apartment was pleasant throughout my stay, and I was very happy to have instant hot water (and I mean really hot!) in the sinks and shower.
The wifi was fast and reliable, which made it easy for me to get work done.
As I do a lot of cooking for myself, I do wish that there had been better/more kitchen equipment, but I made do with what was available.
The bulk of my activities during my stay were in Manhattan, and it so happened that they were not near the lines that go to Prospect Park (B, Q), so given my circumstances, it wasn't ultimately the most convenient location, so I would caution prospective guests to investigate this point for themselves.
Overall, this was a very positive experience, and I'm thankful to Matt for making me feel comfortable and at home!
Matt was very welcoming. He was available during our stay if we had any questions. The apartment was as we expected, the building is quite old and that is visible in some decline but it has character and Matt has done a good job in making it feel homey.
The Kitchen was a bit less equipped than we hoped, so it makes it a challenge to do more than make tea/coffee and have breakfast. Luckily the neighbourhood is packed with great take-away places.
The neighbourhood is great, next to the park and just a few stops away from Manhattan. Prospect park was also a lovely place to escape from the city.
Matt very accommodating, apartment as described and right next to Prospect Park which was great. The only negative was the train station which was right next door and very loud.
Matt was very friendly and accommodating. The apartment is a very nice space, and amazingly located - prospect park, convenience stores and express subway station all on your doorstep. As a result it's a little noisy at night, but it didn't bother us. The bed isn't particularly comfortable, but couldn't fault the place otherwise. Would definitely recommend it.
We had a great time at Matt's apartment on Prospect Park. We did not meet Matt in person but he made sure that we got the keys and that everything was set when we arrived and our conversations via internet/phone were always very friendly.
The apartement is exactly as described. It is equipped with everyhing you could ask for: fresh linen, towels, soap, shampoo, books, NYC guides, umbrella, WIFI ... and there were even some groceries (spices, spagetthi etc.) in the kitchen.
The apartment house is right next to the metro station (you can see it from the window) which was very convenient, but, as described, you could also hear the trains going in and out at night. This did not bother us too much, but for those who have a light sleep Matt even provides ear plugs ;) Trains take approxamitely 15minutes to central Manhattan. There is also a deli/ grocery store next to the station and at the other end of the street there's a Wendy's and a doctor's office.
My stay at Matt's was great. The apartment is exactly as it looks in the photos. Everything was tidy and clean when we got there and towels/shampoo/soap were provided as well.
Matt was also very responsive and had no issue with us staying as long as we needed to on checkout day.
I would not hesitate to stay here again. Thanks Matt!
Le séjour chez Matt a été agréable. Il était là pour nous accueillir le premier jour, ils nous a tout de suite mis à l'aise.
Le logement correspond à la description qui en a été faite, nous avons beaucoup apprécié la proximité du métro (on l'entend de l'appartement). Il y a aussi le parc prospect à côté de même qu'une épicerie.
Matt and his lovely wife Haleh are delightful. Creative friendly amazing musicians. Hope to see them again on their next trip back on the West Coast
All the best
Because they stayed in a separate apartment, I rarely saw Matt and his girlfriend. They seemed nice when we did interact.
Awesome guests; clean and respectful. Even invited us to their show! Great people overall.
Matt was a good guest and enjoyed his stay. He is welcome back to the bijoux house
Matt, Wife and friends are very friendly. Great musicians and creative minds. Even my daughter had a lot of fun when she met them. Very respectful, educated and courteous. Hope they come back soon and spend more time in our apartment.
It was a real pleasure to meet and host Matt during his visit to Big Sur. He took good care of my property and left everything in good order. I can recommend him to other hosts and will welcome him back.
Matt was very easy and appreciative! Very nice person and I recommend him!!
Awesome guest, such a pleasure to host. Matt and his wife are so kind, they even offered us tickets to their night show. It was so much fun and both are so talented. Wouldn't hesitate to host again. They were clean and even petted our dogs :)
we loved having matt in our home. a very bright, creative and generous young man.
Matt was a wonderful guest. He was very understanding when I accidentally gave him the wrong pass code for the internet his first night in. Very nice.
