I live in New York City, I'm the co-founder of a non-profit education software company.
This is a great place to spend your NY vacation! I really enjoyed location, nice brownstone buildings, families on the streets, small bakeries to have breakfast in, restaurants and cafes. Evan even left us a list of nice places to have brunch, dinner or coffee round the corner. There is two underground lines you can reach in 10/15 min walk. The apartment is very modern, clean, and full of light. Really good supermarket in the same building which is not easy to find in Brooklyn or Manhattan, at least my experience.
Evan was a wonderful host. Responded to my e-mails and texts quickly and attended to every detail. Left us a great list of information, including places to eat. The apt. was beautiful. Couldn't have asked for more. Clean, clean, clean. Very comfortable bed. Within a reasonable walk to the subway. Mixed neighborhood, but felt totally safe.
The place is great - 5 minutes walk from the subway. Bed is comfortable and there was plenty of space for the two of us. Unfortunately we couldn't access the apartment on the first day (it was thanksgiving and the cafe with the keys was closed) but Evan put us up in a hotel in Soho and paid our uber fare there and back which was awesome. The area itself is pretty cool, supermarket downstairs and some decent eating places within 5 minutes walk. Definitely recommended - Thanks Evan!
Great experience. Evan's apartment is clean and well-suited for two people. The apartment itself is quiet; we couldn't hear neighbors at all. You do get some street traffic noise, including emergency vehicle sirens, especially with the windows open, but it never really bothered us.
Though we never met Evan, he left good notes and checked in via text to make sure everything was OK.
We picked up keys at a cafe about six blocks from the apartment, right off a G train stop. The only hiccup was that the cafe staff had let a handheld device for the key exchange service drain, so it took 5-10 minutes before we could log in. (We needed a bite to eat anyway, so it wasn't much of a hassle in the end.)
Evan's handy set of notes included a list of local restaurants and bars, and every tip we tried was a good one. And the ground floor grocery is fantastically convenient, clean and well-stocked.
This part of Bed-Stuy is quite literally in transition. There are brownstone renovations underway on every block. Great places to eat and hang out popping up on Bedford and nearby. If you like to walk (which my wife and I do) it's easy to get to Clinton Hill and Prospect Heights. And it's a 5-10 minute walk to G and A/C subway stops, so real easy to get around town, or either airport if you're traveling light.
Volltreffer!!! Wir haben uns in Evans geschmackvoll eingerichteten, großzügigen Apartment sehr wohl gefühlt. Nach einem langen Tag im turbulenten Manhattan war es wunderbar wieder zurückzukommen in diese gemütliche Oase inmitten des Großstadtdschungels. In der Nähe des Apartments gibt es eine Menge netter Cafès und Restaurants mit lockerer, gemütlicher Atmosphäre, die U-Bahnen nach Manhattan sind nicht weit weg und die Fahrradstation um die Ecke ist total praktisch. Evan hält jede Menge wertvoller Tipps für seine Gäste bereit, auch für Ausflüge zum Meer. Super Apartment, klasse Vermieter, alles top - 5 Sterne!!!
My girlfriend and I had a tremendous time at Evan's place. The apartment is truly wonderful—filled with light, spacious, well-equipped, super cozy, beautifully decorated. You'll probably fall in love with the place as we did. On the flip side, Evan is a wonderful host: responsive, accommodating, attentive and helpful. A bottle of wine was waiting for us when we arrived at the apartment. Evan had also printed a detailed list of instructions/tips so that we never felt the need to ask him anything. From checkin to checkout, everything was beautifully simple. TL;DR, I highly recommend this place (and this host!). 5 stars is definitely not enough.
Thanks Matthieu! You guys are welcome anytime.
Hosting Evan was a real pleasure!!! such a sweet guy, the best part is every house rule was followed and left our place super clean. thanks so much Evan! please come back soon! :)

Evan was a great guest! Took good care of our airstream! We highly recommend him to any future host.
Evan and his girlfriend were exemplary guests. Tidy, quiet, seemed to do their own thing very contentedly. Left the place in perfect condition, welcome back anytime!
Evan was an ideal guest! He was communicative prior to his arrival and was lovely to have around. He was very respectful of our cottage and left everything in perfect condition. Anyone would be lucky to have him stay at their place.
