Our little oasis

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 5 nights in the penthouse at 167 Hancock and already miss it! Great location, perfect size for me, my teenager daughter and her best. Easy parking and access to subway lines. Jacqui and David were lovely hosts and very helpful in guiding us as required.

I loved having coffee on the rooftop patio in the morning and the girls loved turning on the funky neon sign everytime we came back "home".

Merci beaucoup Jacqui et David. We'll be back.

A gem of a place close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time here. The apartment was clean and comfortable with plenty of space for two. Would also be ideal for a family. The hosts were knowledgeable and charing. Subway was a short walk away with a direct line into Manhattan. We look forward to staying here again in the future!

Great location close to subway. We enjoyed all New York has to offer and enjoyed the neighborhood location of the apartment. The kitchen had everything we needed. Enjoyed the patio off the kitchen as well!

Wonderful time in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

Jacqui and David are wonderful hosts. We were two moms taking a mini-break to run the Brooklyn rock n roll half marathon and the 2 bedroom penthouse was perfect for us. The apartment was spacious and well equipped.

The location is great - less than 10 min walk to Nostrand subway station on the A and C lines that take you directly to Manhattan and all the places you want to go. We felt safe and welcomed in the neighbourhood - everyone was so friendly. Lots of amazing places to eat close by. We recommend Paris Dakar for amazing crepes, Peaches Hothouse for delicious southern fried chicken and Xochiti Taqueria for Mexican and happy hour margaritas. We had an amazing time and loved staying in Brooklyn at Jacqui and David's.

Downtown we recommend Juniors just near Times Square and also the lunch special (between 11-4pm) at Lillie's at 249 W 49th St near Times Square. We saw Waitress and The Book of Mormon - both of which were excellent.

I can't believe we are home already - too sad. We hope to come back soon!

Very clean brownstone.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at your brownstone. Although our trip got cut short we still crammed a lot of places in 2 days. Subway is a very short walk away and we always felt safe. The rooftop terrace was so much fun watching each other get out there! Perfect New York experience!
