My boyfriend and I had a great time staying in Orren's apartment. It was warm, cosy and clean. We felt like we had an authentic New York experience staying in Red Hook and enjoyed walking to the supermarket that is close by and eating at the very yummy and diverse restaurants on Van Brunt street. We walked to the subway station (Carroll st, F line) each morning and always felt safe and enjoyed the neighbourhood. The keyless entry was convenient and Orren was always available with great advice and answered any questions we had. The shower in the bathroom was fantastic and was a great end to each day! The bed was super comfy and the kitchen had everything we needed if we wanted to cook. We would highly recommend this apartment, we felt like we had our own home in Brooklyn and experience New York like travellers rather than tourists.
This house is every bit as charming as it was in the listing. We spent a long 4 months here while our home was being renovated but it was just what our family of 5 needed. We were so comfortable here. Orren was always very quick to respond to us and when things around the house needed attention they were always fixed quickly. The beds are comfortable, the shower pressure is great, and having a washer/dryer in the basement was SO convenient. The parking space, for us, was the real icing on the cake though. Wish we could take it with us!
The neighborhood was also a huge factor in why we loved our stay so much. The block itself is full of wonderful people who made us feel very welcome, and Red Hook is a great neighborhood to live in. The local restaurants and coffee shop are exceptional, and you're a quick walk from the best grocery store in the city if you want to eat in. Our kids loved going to the Saturday art classes at Kentler Gallery, the library right around the corner, scooting around the piers on the waterfront, trick-or-treating on Coffey St., and participating in the Barnacle Parade. I knew this neighborhood would be fun to live in for a while, but even I underestimated it. We love Red Hook.
I would highly recommend staying here. This is a special place.
We had a great time at NY Brooklyn red hook. The loft is cosy and clean. There are a lots of amenities around, but the Subway is a bit far at the end of the week ... Oren is a real dude and let us free. Thanks for this wonderfull time in this awesome city !
We had a great stay in Red Hook and Orren and his wife are very nice and helpful. The apartment has everything you need and is close to great restaurants and bars. Also fairly close to the metro - or the IKEA boat to Manhattan! Would definitely come back to the area and apartment.
Logement parfaitement conforme à la description et aux précédents commentaires. Le chauffage, l'eau chaude sont top ce qui fut très apprecié en cette froide période !
Le quartier est calme, à 5mn du bus (qui rejoint le métro) et 10mn du métro.
Orren et sa femme sont très attentionnés, et très disponibles (on l'a dérangé en pleine soirée pour un simple problème de luminaire, il est immédiatement venu nous aider !)
En conclusion, cet endroit s'est révélé parfait concernant nos attentes, idéal donc pour un couple qui souhaite visiter tous les quartiers de NYC.
This place is legit! It made us feel "like a local" and at home at the same time. Seriously, highly recommended host and pad. Orren et al. were very dependable; and if you want some privacy / alone time / DIY trip (like we did), they will gladly oblige. The water closet gave us that sense of relief after a long day and/or night of traversing NYC.
OOOh and let's talk about the neighborhood! It was quiet, no trains shaking the whole building at 0300 but fret not, the nearest station is only 10 minutes away. There's a spectrum of folks and experiences in the locale ranging from posh to nitty-gritty in a good and real way. There's a decent sized market half a mile away, a water taxi port, artsy shops, coffee places, a delicious sammich place, seafood and bbq joint, watering holes and fried chicken joint.
Plus the good part, it felt safe. Really safe. We came back from downtown at 0430, walking like nothing worries us.
Yea, this was our first time in NYC and it was awesome. We felt like travellers, not tourists. Thanks to our wonderful hosts and their wonderful place. (^_^)
Orren's apartment was lovely, clean, light and just perfect for our needs. We were within walking distance from a really cute cafe, one of the best sandwich shops in New York City, and much more. The bed is quite comfortable and overall, a very easy, pleasant stay. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a local Brooklyn experience!
Orren was a great host and provided friendly service! Apartment was totally as shown/described and close enough to the train to make the choice not to rent a car worth it. HIGHLY recommend stayin here and will most likely book with Orren in the future. Apartment was clean and warm, everything was great!
We spent 1 week at Orren's place during October
Location: 12 min walk from the apartment to the metro station, we arrived late Saturday by metro and had no issue finding it (use the sky train and then the blue line until Jay Metrotech and then switch on the F line)
The streets are well lit and we felt safe all the time
Apartment: very nice, clean and with plenty of room. Bathroom is big and well equipped (hair drier and towels)
The access code to open the door is very handy
Host: very helpful and welcoming,thanks Orren!
We will suggest this apartment to anyone who does not mind being away from the city centre
Super Appartement, trés propre, lumineux, agreable.
Tout est mis en oeuvre pour passer un tres bon sejour.
Le quartier de Red Hook est tres sympa.
Orren a été un hote tres agreable, et toutes les communications et demandes se sont bien passées.
Concernant les transports, le Bus est vraiment tout proche, moins de 5 min a pied.
Concernant le metro, il faudra une bonne quinzaines de minutes pour y arriver... S'il pleut cela fait beaucoup!
Un seul petit bemol, le manque d'isolation du plafond, quand des gens sont au dessus, car le plancher est en bois.
Nous aurons passés tout de même un tres agreable sejour.
Orren and his partner were wonderful guests: communicative, warm, and friendly. They brought along their adorable, well-mannered little dog, who was also an exemplary guest. As hosts themselves, they know exactly how to treat a property with care. The house was left immaculate. We hope they come back!
We were so happy to host Orren again this summer. They are always so easy to work with - quick to respond and very kind & respectful. Great guests.
Great group. left the house pretty clean.
Orren was a pleasure to deal with. Really prompt and always kind & respectful. I'd be happy to recommend him to others or host him again.
