I am an often traveling orchestra conductor.
I have just stayed one week in Yves Abel's house together with three friends. A perfect place to stay. The house offers lots of space and light, nice sofa area, as well as well equipped bath rooms and kitchen.
The location is great - close to very good restaurants and cafes and small shops. There are balconies and terraces to nearly all rooms - not so useful in a snowy February but perfect for a spring or summer vacation.
We all agree - we would like to come back and will definitely recommend this house to others.
I rented this apartment for family members who were coming to Brooklyn for my wedding. It was perfect! The location is great, the house is spotless and beautifully decorated, and Yves and Antonio were super organized and very responsive to all of my questions.
We rented Yves's place for my Canadian family visiting for a week to celebrate an early Christmas. It could not have been more perfect for them. Such a beautiful home, with lovely bedrooms and a great open concept kitchen/living room, perfect for big dinners and hanging out. The location is fantastic as well, right in the heart of it all. The place was spotless and had everything we could have needed in the way of bedding, towels, cookware, and such. Antonio, who manages the property and oversaw our arrival and departure, was delightful and made sure we were well set up. He also phoned to let us know that someone would shovel the steps and sidewalk upon the first snowfall. Absolutely no complaints, it was a perfect experience. Thanks!
Beautiful home, well equipped and conveniently located. We had a wonderful holiday stay with family and friends and plan to return to Yves lovely home in warmer weather when we can enjoy the outdoor areas and view.
Merci à Antonio et Yves pour ce très beau séjour. La maison est vraiment superbe, très fonctionnelle et l'équipement (lit, salle de bain, électroménager) est de qualité. La proximité des transports est également un gros plus. Nous avons également apprécié les commerces (restaurant, supermarché) de la 5eme avenue de Brooklyn toute proche.
N'hésitez pas, cette location est parfaite. ;-)
Eine tolle Adresse - einen Steinwurf von der Subway Station, tolle Architektur, sehr gemütliches Ambiente - und man lebt in den Privatgemächern eines berühmten Dirigenten - in der obersten Etage ist sogar ein Flügel - hunderte von Partituren - für 7 Personen ideal - mehr kann ich mehr schwer vorstellen - aber für die 7 ideal.
Wir werden wieder nach New York fahren - und dann wieder in dieses Haus, wenn es frei sein sollte - hier kann man nach anstrengenden weil erlebnisreichen Tagen in Manhatten abschalten, gemütlich beisammen sitzen - hat zumindest 3, eigentlich aber 4 Zimmer und 3 Bäder - kann nach vorne und nach hinten auf verschiedene Balkone, auch überdacht - und Antonio, der die Unterkunft für Yves Abel verwaltet, sehr nett, sehr zuverlässig,
We – a family of ten people from 14 to 73 – have enjoyed a beautiful holiday in the gorgeous flat in Dean Street. With lots of bedrooms (with great beds), french windows, terraces, several bathrooms and a very big living room with a modern kitchen with every facility we could possibly need it was a perfect setting for my family and for our holiday. The house was surrounded by trees and a quiet neighborhood but there were still only hundred yards to the adjourning avenues with restaurants and shops of all kinds, bars, places for music (try the Tea Lounge on 7th avenue!) and a big shopping mall as well. And around the corner one of many subways with just one stop to Manhattan on the express train which ran very frequently. – I cannot imagine a better place to stay in New York. – And I shall add that the whole arrangement with the owner and his assistant worked extremely pleasant and they both did all they could to make us feel welcome and safe in every aspects. – It is a ten out of ten!
I rented Yves's house for a staff retreat for my 5 coworkers and I. The home was amazing - even better than in pictures. Beautiful artwork and decor, and not cluttered in the least. Everything was in working order, and we received a very thorough welcome and orientation to the house and the rules.
The living room/dining room was the perfect space for us to spread out and have our meeting, and the ample bedrooms let us escape in the evening and have our own space. I know the neighborhood, and so I can say with confidence that the location couldn't be better - super easy access to public transportation, shops, restaurants and entertainment.
A group of 5 of us stayed in Yves apartment for 5 days at the end of our New York trip, and very glad we did.
The apartment is fantastic with plenty of room for a large group, with a lot of spaces to relax and wind down. The apartment itself had everything we needed and was well maintained and clean. The location is great and we really enjoyed exploring all that Park Slope has to offer. We always felt safe here. And a number of subway stops are just around the corner so we could get anywhere we needed quite easily. Most of my dealings were with Yves assistant Antonio, who was an absolute pleasure to deal with, even with our arrival time shifting slightly.
Would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for quality accommodation in Brooklyn...why would you stay in Manhattan anyway?!
Yves home was everything as advertise. From the moment we got there Antonio was there to meet us to show us around. We arrived quite early as we took a red eye from SFO. We were invited to leave our luggage while the housekeeper was cleaning, but after the bedrooms were cleaned we were able to get a little shuteye. I can't say enough about the home about how much we enjoyed staying there. We were a party of 6 and each couple had their own bedroom/bathroom. Our daughter came down from Boston over the week-end and stayed in the bedroom off the side of the kitchen which had a half bath. The home was spacious enough for all of us to roam around without getting into each others hair. We even had a dinner party one nite with relatives from NY and was able to use the deck with the bbq. When our Aunt walked in she shouted "this home has be be worth 3 million" We enjoyed every minute of our stay, my only regret was not spending more time at the home. Everyone in our party loved the place and through I was a genius finding/booking it. The location was perfect for us. We walked everywhere, even to Manhattan across the Brooklyn Bridge. Thank you to Yves and Antonio for making our holiday a memorable one, and YES I would come back at a drop of a hat. I wish I could give you a 10 star rating because your home, you and Antonio deserve it.
Che dire...Yves é stato il primo ospite dell'appartamento San Michele e spero che i prossimi possano essere altrettanto gentili, educati, comprensivi e rispettosi come lui!
Yves is a very nice and sympathic and organized guy...! He is always welcome in my place and I can highly recomend him as a client..!!!
Yves has been a great guest and taken very good care of flat. Thanks for that. Let me know if you ever want to stay again.
I was glad to have Yves over as a guest. He and his wife are fantastic. Yves is very respectful and superfriendly, thus I can highly recommend Yves as a guest.
Yves stayed with his son, nanny and eventually his girlfriend. Seemed like a nice bunch - very polite and understanding. They left the place in good condition and even tidied up which was nice of them! I would recommend them as a guest/s anytime.
The stay of Yves and his family was a great pleasure for all of us. Unfortunatel we didn´t had the time to get to know each other better, but maybe we will find it in the future.
He is a highly recommandable guest, very calm, friendly and nice. The communication worked perfect and everything was fine.
We really hope to welcome him very soon back in Munich.
