This space is exactly as the photos show. It's a gorgeous little spot in a convenient location. Very lovely, inviting, and comfortable. The bed was perfect and was tempting to stay in all day to keep out of the cold. Check-in/out is very easy, and Christine was very prompt in responding to queries. Will definitely look to stay with Christine & James the next time I'm in NYC.
I loved the no-fuss check-in/check-out process. The apartment was as pictured and very clean. Things we really appreciated were: the comfortable bed, the simple white slippers in the closet, the high-quality towels, and the gigantic flat screen TV. My husband enjoyed the jet bathtub (I unfortunately didn't get a chance to!)
The area seemed pretty cool, although I can't comment specifically because we were pretty busy with wedding activities in other areas. Downtown Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Museum were about a half hour walk. Christine quickly provided restaurant recommendations in the area when I emailed her to ask.
My only suggestions are to store an iron and ironing board in the kitchen closet and perhaps have a coffee maker. There was a small espresso maker, but I wasn't quite sure how to use it so avoided it - although I'm sure I would have figured it out if I wasn't being lazy. ;)
Long story short - we would definitely stay there again!
I've stayed at many Airbnb's in Brooklyn, but this was by far, the best. It was really easy to get the keys (lock box) and also check out. The duplex really IS like a house, which means, when you open the door, you're right outside (no elevators, no stairs, no fiddling with doors and multiple keys), there's very minimal noise from neighbors (usually in other places you can hear them stomping around, it's just the nature of older apartments in BK), and you can't beat the location! Although Washington Ave is a major street, it's very quiet.
Also, the home is absolutely lovely. It was hotel-style clean, comfortable, and I regret not having time to use the jet spa in the bathroom. Also, water pressure in the shower was excellent, and you don't have to wait 15 mins for hot water to come out. ;-)
And... there's a TV with cable! (Sadly, many Brooklynites don't have either.)
I would stay here again. This was by far, the best place in Bk, and I come every month for work.
This place is absolutely divine! Every detail was immaculate and the place was spotless when I arrived. Really the only thing that didn't make my experience perfect was the street noise, but it's nothing that can't be solved with earplugs. The hosts were very accommodating and made sure to check in to see if I was warm enough throughout my stay. I have already recommended the place to friends and hope to stay again soon!
This apartment and Christine and James are really gorgeous.
The apartment was very clean, warm and comfortable. Decorated with a cool mixture of different pictures as well as very good accessoires and interior. The kitchen was fully equipped and we missed nothing at all. We spend a beautiful week there and also the conversation with Christine was very easy, nice and courteous.
I am sure, that we would be glad to stay at this apartment again.
Thank you very very much, lovely Christine.
All the best. Hope to see you soon. Laura.
I rented Christine & James' beautiful apartment for my in-laws who were visiting us for a long weekend (we live in the neighborhood). Everything was perfect and exactly as listed. It is stylish, comfortable and convenient to the best Clinton Hill/ Fort Greene spots. Will be filing this one away for future visitors. Thanks C&J.
I really enjoyed my stay in Christine and James's apartment. It is super roomy, clean, and uncluttered. I don't even think I used the downstairs, other than to kick my shoes off at the end of a long day. The neighborhood is great. One can experience many different faces of New York by meandering in different directions. Just down the street there are some nice little restaurants (Japanese, Lebanese, American, etc), as well as the obligatory pizza place. The "G" is pretty close and from there, one can start exploring parts of Brooklyn most will never see. access to Manhattan is pretty easy. Christine and James went out of their way to make me feel welcome. They made sure I was O.K. from time to time and were flexible with my airline schedule. Next time I'm in New York, I'll try and stay here again.
Het appartement is geweldig. Het heeft alles wat je nodig hebt tijdens een comfortabel verblijf in New York. Van een biertje in de grote koelkast tot slippers en dikke handdoeken. Shampoo en tandpasta kun je thuislaten! Alles was schoon, en we voelden ons er erg thuis. Het komt precies overeen met de foto's.
We hebben brooklyn en Manhattan op de Citibike verkend, en er stond een fietsstation in de buurt! Naast een grote biologische supermarkt, erg handig.
We hebben James en Christine niet ontmoet, maar dat was voor ons geen enkel probleem. Christine bleef tijdens ons verblijf voortdurend in contact en was gemakkelijk bereikbaar via Airbus. Ze heeft ook onze rit naar het vliegveld voor ons geregeld.
Het enige minpuntje is het verkeer, wat mij 's ochtends nog wel ns wakker maakte.
Zeker een aanrader!
The place is fantastic! The pictures accurately depict the space. It is an adorable little brownstone option in a great neighborhood in Brooklyn. The bed is very comfortable and the apt very spacious. We had no problems getting around from that location and enjoyed all the great restos and bars close-by.
Aside from a slight administrative issue I experienced at the beginning of the booking, the rest of the correspondence between the host and I went very smoothly. The place was easy to find and Christine kept in touch throughout to ensure the stay was pleasurable.
The one thing I would caution incoming guests is that the place is not equipped with shampoo/conditioner/body wash or even a blow dryer. That may not matter to you, but if it does, make sure to bring your own!
Sorry to hear this now, there was a blow dryer in the apartment, if you would have let us know while you were there I could have told you where to locate it.
We had a more than pleasant stay at Christine and James' place where we stayed for two weeks. The apartment was exactly as in the pictures, cosy and perfectly equipped. The bed was comfortable and the whirlpool tub very relaxing after a long day of walking through the city. As mentioned, the subway was only a 5 minute walk and gave a good connection between Brooklyn and Manhattan. We especially loved the neighborhood with its beautiful brownstone houses and all of its great restaurants. As for Christine and James, they were very nice and helpful and at all times available. It is definitely a great place to stay if you are visiting New York!
Christine & James were excellent guests, they were easy to communicate with and they left the apartment spotless.
Christine and James were easy guests to host and they left the place clean. Very much appreciated!
Christine and James were great guests . Their property in New York looks awesome and well taken care of which normally tells you a lot about the owners. Come back any time!
