The Apartment is not done justice by the photos. The double hight living room and floor to ceiling windows make for a real oasis from the New York madness. Highly recommend.
We spent an extraordinary 8 days in NYC, in large part due to this great flat! The place has an incredible view on downtown Brooklyn through an extra large window bay, kitchen fully equipped and plenty of storage room for suitcases and clothes. Our two kids and us found enough space to sleep all together in the bedroom. The kids slept on air mattresses that were very simple to use and comfortable enough. Loads of shops are within 5 minute walking distance and almost any place in NYC can be reached within a half hour metro ride from borough hall station which is just two minutes away. Ryan was very helpful with tips about the neighborhood and flexible about our leaving time. Thanks to him we spent a very relaxed time in New York and the apartment was really home for us and the kids. Thanks to you, ryan, for organizing everything so we'll for us.
This was my first experience with Airbnb, and thanks to Ryan I have referred lots of friends. The apartment was awesome in every way and Ryan was very responsive and helpful before and during our stay. Great location - shopping, food, subways. Even walked to Brooklyn Tabernacle for Sunday service. The apartment has everything you need. We even prepared Thanksgiving dinner for two.
For a very comfortable, spacious place with a great view and easy access to anything and anywhere you want, this place would be hard to beat.
Ryan's apt is amazing! It's at the last building floor, with private roof and an incredible view.
We didn't meet Ryan in person, but he has proved to be a great host always ready to reply to our questions.
After a quick and simple check in, we found ourselves in an apartment comfortable and fully equipped; the neighbourhood revealed to be really lovely, but the thing we appreciated more than other was the position. In 3-5 minutes you can get a lot of subway lines to go in every place you want in Manhattan!
We found nothing negative and our vacation is been fantastic, so we want absolutely to recommend Ryan and his apartment to anyone who wants to go to NYC.
We stayed at Ryan's apartment for nearly three weeks and found it very spacious, comfortable and perfect for our needs. The apartment is located in a well-managed building in a very pleasant neighbourhood. Ryan was easy to communicate with and our one small issue on arrival was quickly and amicably resolved.
We stayed as a family with a three year old boy who really appreciated the space to play, as well as the rooftop. Youngsters do need to be supervised on the spiral staircase to the roof deck though. The kitchen was easy to use and well equipped, and the laundry facility was convenient. The apartment is ideal for extended stays.
We really enjoyed the neighbourhood, and found Cobble Hill had plenty of eating and shopping opportunities. We particularly recommend Pedlar Cafe for a morning caffeine fix!
We would heartily recommend this apartment.
Great experience at Ryan's apartment. Everything went smoothly and the apartment was perfect. We ended up ordering in food a few nights because the view was better than any restaurant in the area. We even used the grill one night and spent time out on the deck. Gorgeous views of Downtown Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan in the distance. Highly recommend this apartment. Convenient location with a Trader Joe's half a block away. My daughter lives a few blocks down and it truly is one of the best neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Thanks, Ryan!
We had a great say in in Ryan's apartment. There was easy access to 2 subway stations and the local Brooklyn Heights neighborhood had plenty of eating spots to choose from. Fabulous view out the window from the 11th floor. There was no computer to use, but the internet access worked well. The rental is highly recommended.
Our stay at Ryan's Brooklyn Penthouse was brilliant! It was in a perfect location close to the 4, 5, R, 2 & 3 Lines making a trip to Manhattan quick & easy (2 stops to the Financial District, 15 mins to get to Union Sq).
Ryan was very obliging & available to our questions & needs. We felt very comfortable & safe with the 24hr doorman & grateful to have the 24hr pharmacy across the road when my daughter was sick in the middle of the night! A bonus to have Trader Joes also across from our apartment & as a Melbounite (read coffee addict), discovering The Peddlar Cafe a couple blocks away was happiness!!!
The best thing about our stay? It was opening the front door (email hidden) transit from Australia & audibly gasping at the sparkling views of downtown Brooklyn at midnight. I will never forget that view! We recommend Brooklyn's Dial 7 Car Service for your airport pick up - flawless transfer.
I also recommend taking your entry to Manhattan for the first time by walking the Brooklyn Bridge! What a way to take New York by storm!
Our stay at Ryan's and overall airbnb experience was very positive. The apartment was lovely and comfortable and met our expectations. Though there was no promised computer for our use, the wifi set up was robust and easy to log onto. Brooklyn Heights has always been a nice walking neighborhood, but nearby Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill are equally appealing and full of trendy cafes and shops. Of course Manhattan is easy to access via a number of subway lines just a few blocks away from the building. The only real glitch was checking in with the concierge on our arrival. Just reconfirm with Ryan that he has actually left your name with the front desk before you show up and all should run smoothly. It was resolved quickly for us with a simple phone call to Ryan, but might have been much more complicated had he not been available at that moment. However, we had a good stay and I'd certainly consider booking the apartment again.
Why stay in a hotel when you could live as a New Yorker in your very own beautiful apartment? View is fantastic, great facilities, good location, will be coming back (preferably during the summer to enjoy the great roof deck!)
Great guest! Easy communication, clean and respectful. Highly recommended. Cheers!
Ryan only stayed with us for a night, but he was a very tidy and responsible guest. Great at communicating check-in and check-out plans. Would gladly host again!
Ryan and his crew were very good guests. I was happy to host Ryan and hope he books with me again if he is ever in Chicago!
Ryan was a great guest and very enjoyable to talk with. I would invite him back anytime and wish him the best with his entrepreneurial adventures.
