About Maryla Cobb

Although I have lived in New York for many years and consider myself a New Yorker, I was born in Europe and travel a lot all around the world.

For me, my vacation rental is more than just a business. It is the joy I get from making my guests feel at home in our townhouse, as well as helping them to discover the dynamic and creative energy that New York has to offer.

My husband Geoffrey is a high school history teacher. He speaks German, Spanish and French and helps greet our international guests.

Comfortable, stylish and spotlessly clean.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 10 days as a family of five from Scotland and were made to feel more than welcome by Maryla who gave us some great tips and information about the local area. As first timers to New York we weren't really sure what to expect but we couldn't have been happier with the apartment and the area.

The apartment is exactly like the pictures - stylish and comfortable and a pleasure to come back to at night after a busy day seeing the sights. It is also spotlessly clean and obviously well cared for.

Location wise its ideally situated for visiting Manhattan - the nearest subway station is a couple of minutes walk- but we also had great days out in Brooklyn, and had fun at beaches at Coney Island and Rockaway.

There are some good little restaurants locally that Maryla will recommend to you - with a much more relaxed vibe than Manhattan and good quality food. We very much enjoyed our stay here and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

A perfect gem!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful townhouse reflects the character if its owner, Maryla: it is charming, gracious and welcoming. The beds are comfortable, the sheets are of lovely quality, the kitchen is well-appointed and the entire place was spotlessly clean. The finishing is beautifully done with hardwood floors, tiled bathroom and a comfortable eating area.

Maryla could not have been kinder or more welcoming. We were a family of five, In New York to celebrate our son's 21st birthday. Maryla dropped off a bottle of champagne to celebrate the occasion and had many great suggestions for places to eat. Her husband, Geoffrey, is a historian who has written a book about the history of Greenpoint and is a thoughtful and friendly source of information about the area.

We have rented a number of apartments in the U.S.A. and in Europe and this is easily one of the loveliest locations we have enjoyed. Highly recommended!

FIVE STARS PLUS!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and closest friends were lucky enough to spend the Christmas weekend in Brooklyn and stay in the Calyer Suite! The apartment was spacious, spotless and beautifully appointed, including a live decorated Christmas tree, making it feel especially homey. The apartment is located in a quiet neighborhood with plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance, but is also just a short Lyft /Uber or subway ride from Manhattan and other neighborhoods of Brooklyn. And having parking available was a definite bonus!

I wanted to say a special thank-you to Maryla, who was the consummate host; she was there to greet and settle us in when we arrived and was sure to check in with us before we departed. Although the kitchen is very well-equipped with cookware, utensils and dishes, Maryla knew we planned to cook a Christmas Eve feast in the apartment and she thoughtfully provided us with an additional stockpot and serving dishes. We also enjoyed meeting Geoffrey and appreciated his sharing with us the history of the area as well as making recommendations about “local” places of interest.

With our son living in Bushwick and so much more of Brooklyn to explore, I know this will be our first of many stays with Maryla.

Very comfortable and would definitely re-visit

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this apartment if you are visiting Green Point. It is on a charming street, and the apartment is very light-filled and has a separate entrance.The bathroom and kitchen were exceptionally clean, well-stocked and comfortable. We were there to visit family in the area and the sitting room and kitchen spacious enough to entertain them there. Overall a 10!!!!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This HomeAway/VRBO experience was the best we've ever had. The townhouse was as described, very clean and lovely.

The location could not have been more perfect for getting around and exploring; the neighborhood is absolutely charming.

Maryla was a most wonderful hostess and truly attentive to our needs. Her husband Geoffrey is a wonderful author and historian. I am already half-way through his book on the fascinating history of this area. What a treat. We genuinely appreciated their knowledgeable recommendations and the sharing of interesting historical facts.

By the time we left, I felt like I was leaving new friends.

I would absolutely recommend this property and any others that are maintained by this owner. When we visit again, we won't bother to look anywhere else.
