Tim was very communicative prior to our arrival and checked in with us once we arrived. His detailed instructions made our check in process very smooth, and the lock box made check in and check out easy. We had a pleasant stay. Tim's place was very comfortable, clean, fairly quiet and spacious.

Tim's place is so beautiful and comfortable. My family was visiting me, and staying here gave them a perfect Brooklyn and NYC experience. They would love to stay here next time they're in town!

Tim is a great host: he has provided us with lots of useful information about his home, the neighborhood, and parking. The appartment was clean, spacious, decorated with taste, and gave the feeling that it was inhabited by a smart and happy family. The kitchen / dining area is well lit, has a nice breeze through it, a large beautiful table, and a great space and up-scale equipment for cooking together. The bathroom is clean, reasonably large and pleasant. Towels provided are large and excellent quality. The two beds are large and have comfortable mattresses and pillows. Tim has installed a top of the line audio system throughout the house that I can control from my own iPhone and use to listen to my or their music. There is also a projector for watching videos, which we did not have time to use. The apartment has a rather large private garden, but it only has a small table, so we used it only as a parlor, not as a dining area. We found a parking spot right in front of the house every day, but this was the Labor day weekend. The neighborhood is safe and there are coffee shops near by. We drove to the WholeFood nearby for groceries, but also shopped in the small local shops. Everything was great. Thank you Tim.

Tim and Ellen's place is fantastic in so many ways! The place is beautiful and decorated so artistically, especially the parlour floor level. It is a clean and open space that is so comfortable to relax in after a long day in the surrounding neighborhood. There is no television but there is a really cool projection system. The brownstone is in an excellent location. There are beautiful parks and wonderful restaurants and coffee places within walking distance. It was especially great for us because my daughter attends Pratt which is literally around the corner. We did not have the opportunity to meet our hosts, but Tim made sure everything was arranged for our arrival. And when we had questions, Tim was quick to respond. He was extremely attentive to all our needs. We will definitely be back, and I would recommend Tim and Ellen's place to anyone without hesitation!

We really enjoyed our stay at Tim and Ellen's apartment. Arrival and entry was easy and exactly as Tim described. The apartment was spacious with plenty of room for all our luggage and belongings. Our hosts had cleared lots of room in the fridge drawers which was great - more than enough for our needs. We found the apartment quiet at night and we all slept well. The neighbourhood is full of gorgeous buildings, our children loved the play park only a few metres away and the subway couldn't have been closer. We enjoyed exploring Brooklyn and loved the flea market held a short walk away on Saturday afternoons (brilliant food there too). There was a good supermarket on Myrtle, less than 10 mins walk, which met all our needs. We had easy access to Manhatten and travelled by subway in and out. Tim gave us some great recommendations for other days out - including a trip to Rockaway beach which we really enjoyed. This was our first Airbnb and based on our experience we will be doing it again! We would recommend this property as a great base for exploring New York.

Tim's place was perfect for our family of 5. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and very spacious, split over two levels. The location is excellent, very close to great restaurants, cafes, parks, supermarkets and the subway is across the road. It really felt like our home away from home. Tim is very responsive and the checking in and out was a breeze.

We spent five nights in Tim and Ellen's stylish apartment and it worked really well for us as a base to explore New York City. The apartment occupies the lower two floors of the building and is located in a quiet part of Brooklyn but is close enough to be able to walk across Brooklyn Bridge to Manhattan. The kitchen is equipped well enough to prepare any kind of meal that you are likely to want to when visiting the city. Ample space was made available for us in the refrigerator. The two double bedrooms are downstairs and connected by double glass doors (with blinds). Upstairs the open kitchen / dining room connects to the spacious living room, well equipped with hi-fi, projector and Apple TV; both have wonderful high ceilings. There are a handful of good dining options within 10 minutes or so walking distance, but if you are staying for a few days or more (and want variety) you may wish to venture further. Tim and Ellen were at our disposal throughout the stay and were extremely responsive to any queries that we had, responding within a couple of minutes. The apartment was cool and clean and was a great place for our NYC adventure. Thank you Tim and Ellen!

Ellen and I have lived in Clinton Hill since the late 90s and our son Oscar joined us in 2008! My work takes me back and forth between Florida and New York so we are often traveling and list our home when we are away.

We know the neighborhood well as we've been here a long time and can help advise your stay if you looking for a great restaurant or pub, or just a few things to do while in Brooklyn. Or, we can leave you be for a quiet stay in a great neighborhood in one of Brooklyn's registered historic districts.
