Truly a Brooklyn (Park slope) Gem

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home, and the great pictures on this site still do not do this architectural pearl the deserved justice. You will not find better unobtrusive hosts! We admittedly were skeptical to co-habitate (first time doing so) but upon walking in the door .... We both realized we had made the correct decision! Safe community, ample parking, great restaurants close by ... What more can you ask for. We will certainly be back soon.

Excellent place to stay.

Our stay was beyond our expectations. David was friendly and welcoming. The place was very clean and with a beautiful view of the garden. As a 'bonus', there was no problem with parking.

Delightful stay

  • 3 of 5

David was a great host and his home is an architectural delight. Convenient location to the F train which is good for most trips to Manhattan. Park Slope was also fun to wander.

Maya is a wonderful fluffy dog who is keen to welcome everyone.

Good value for money.

Thanks for hosting us, R&S

Wonderful weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place to stay in a great location. Parking on the street is always available and the subway is close. David is a great host. The bedroom overlooks the beautiful garden and the bathroom was spotless.

We've stayed in the basement apartment with our dogs and that was very pleasant also.

Excellent Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful apartment very much. It was spotless and well-decorated. David was very friendly and we felt comfortable entering our room through his home. We have also stayed in the lower apartment and liked that very much. The location is close to good restaurants and the subway so there is no shortage of things to do. We recommend this property highly.

David has a very beautiful house in a nice and quiet neighborhood. I was right trusting the reviews and the pictures ( even though the reality is even better than the pictures). We had a very kind and friendly home sitter - Bernardo who gave us advice and tips on where to go for free or at a low cost. This was our first time in NEw York and We really felt home and enjoyed our stay at David's home. The house is close the the metro station and you can go to Manhattan directly from there. I would recommend it for anyone as the quality was very good! Thank you David and Bernardo :)
