Brian was great. Responsive and a gentleman. His apartment really is cool. Comfy, large and situated in an old historic part of Brooklyn called dumbo( down under the manhattan bridge off ramp) I believe.
I enjoyed it very much.
It was very easy to communicate with Brian and we made our way to the flat very easily. Everything was cleaned when we arrived
The flat itself is very close to the metro. It is located in the heart of Dumbo, a wonderful area.
We were 7 and the flat was spacious enough. We enjoyed the large balcony.
It has everything you need for cooking.
There is also an access to the rooftop with very nice views of east river and the skyline of Manhattan.
We really had a great stay in Brian's flat; thanks a lot!
I had not the fortune to meet Brian. But he was friendly and helpful over email and gave very detailed instructions.
The place was nice, spacious and would've had a nice little outdoor area if it wasn't for the constructions being done.
Great location, right near train stations and shops/bars/restaurants - takes only a few minutes by train to get anywhere around Manhattan.
Place is very snug and provided a perfect retreat from the NYC cold at the end of the day!
We are French ( sorry for spelling mistake ! )…
We spent a wonderful week of vacation to New-York .
Brian's apartment is incredibly well situated for exploring the city without the noise of Manhattan.
Dumbo is a mixture of artistic and industrial, very photogenic area .
Very easy access to Manhattan by a choice of two different subway.
We were a little bit disappointed by the interior of the apartment, It is spacious but not that much.
Of the three bedroom (Tiny!), only one has a window in it and there is an inflatable mattress in the second one, hard - drive for the back!
On photo presentation , there was a large TV flat (good for children) and was a tiny in real.
Also, we have been informed only the day before our arrival that we would not have access to the terrace for repairs.
Last flat, a terrible lack of cleanliness, especially in the kitchen and bathroom.
Brian is very nice but he must understand that we paid a lot of money for 8 nights and we were disappointed with the quality of the apartment for this price.
Nous avons passé une merveilleuse semaine de vacance à New-York.
L'appartement de Brian est incroyablement bien situé pour découvrir cette ville sans avoir les désagréments de Manhattan.
Dumbo est un mélange de quartier industriel et d'artiste, très photogénique.
Très facile d'accès pour aller à Manhattan par deux choix de métro différents.
Par contre, nous avons été déçus par l'interieur de l'appartement.
Il est spacieux mais pas tant que ça.
Sur les trois chambres (minuscules), une seule a une fenêtre et dans l'une d'elle il y a qu'un matelas gonflable (Dur-dur pour le dos).
Sur la photo de présentation, il y avait une grande télévision (pratique pour les enfants) et une toute petite était dans l'appartement.
Aussi, nous avons été prévenu seulement la veille de notre arrivée que nous n'aurions pas accès à la terrasse pour cause de travaux.
Dernier bémol, un manque terrible de propreté, notamment dans la cuisine et la salle de bain.
Brian est très sympatique mais Il faut comprendre que nous avons payé beaucoup d'argent pour 8 nuits et nous avons été déçu de la qualité de l'appartement pour ce prix.
We've stayed in Brian's apartment twice now and both times it's been great! Super convenient to DUMBO and he's an accommodating host!
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans l'appartement de Brian, il est agréable, spacieux, et très bien situé. La station de métro est très proche et la ligne F permet d'aller facilement sur Manhattan.
Un petit supermarché à proximité nous a été très utile, on peut y trouver tout ce qu'il faut, y compris des plats préparés.
Brian is a great host and is easy to access when questions arise. The location is great and easy proximity to Manhattan or to enjoy the many great offerings in Brooklyn. Would stay again!
Brian has a great apartment and was an awesome host. Three bedrooms plus couch space and air mattresses was enough for all of us. There was an excellent coffee shop around the corner and plenty of nearby bars, restaurants, and stores. There were great views down the street at the river. The subway was walking distance away. We were lucky to be only two blocks from the wedding that we were going to, but it was also a great base to go out and explore the city from. Brian met us at the apartment, took us out and showed us around the neighborhood, and bought our first (email hidden). He even promptly answered when I texted him with a stupid question late at night. I'd love to go back and stay there again!
Staying at Brian's place was a great way to experience New York - we were a group of 10 students and managed to fit in the apartment. Brian was a great host, willing to help at any time, and was very generous when we arrived, showing us the area and taking us to a good local bar. We were pretty busy most of the time so there wasn't anything we needed from Brian but he was quick at responding with emails and messages.
It was a tight squeeze getting us all in, and having just one bathroom was always going to be tricky, but it was never really a big problem. The apartment is in such a great location, DUMBO was a really good area and close to York St station.
Highly recommend this apartment!
Highly recommend to any host...
Always welcome to stay at our condo...
Last weekend I was able to meet and host Brian at my place in LA. He was a great guy with a very laid back demeanor. Definitely a positive person with a zest for life. I could tell even talking on the phone that he was a respectful, caring person. This proved to hold true in all of our dealings. He left my loft in tip top shape. I hope I get the chance to host Brian again. I definitely endorse him as a guest with the highest marks. Kyle
