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.

Great base for exploring Brooklyn and Manhattan

  • 4 of 5

Lovely, quiet, safe neighbourhood. The apartment was very clean and well equipped for our needs. The beds were comfortable, and the crockery, linen and towels were good quality. There was plenty of hot water and a good shower.

It was close to a number of subway stops and the trendy Bedford & Nassau Avenue areas were great for interesting shops, restaurants and bars.

Maryla was there to welcome us on arrival with tips and advice on what to do and where to go. A trip on the East River ferry is a cheap and enjoyable way to see the Manhattan skyline as was the view from the pier and transmitter park (just down from the ferry).

There were a couple of downsides to the stay such as, the internet access being very slow and the sofa was quite uncomfortable, particularly after a full day of walking the streets! While we didn't use the oven it was only on the last night that we realised that it didn't work, this wasn't an issue for us but it could be for others who want to cook.

Any downsides to the apartment are far outweighed by the benefits and I would recommend this as an ideal base from which to explore the area.

Owner's Response: Hello, Tracy, Thank you so much for your kind review and noting your concerns. We always appreciate the feedback. With regard to the internet, they have been upgrading the area to fiber-optic, so some delay was experienced during your stay. Pardon. The oven does indeed work. I apologize for not alerting you that the tape we place on the oven knob is only there for safety as I prefer to review how to properly use with our guests. The sofa is from Design Within Reach; perhaps design has trumped comfort. We will look into alternatives. Sincerely, Maryla

Clean and fresh

  • 5 of 5

This was a great base for our family's trip to New York for a week. The apartment was very clean, and felt fresh and airy. It was close to the subway entrance and was on a quiet residential street. Maryla welcomed us warmly and explained the rules of the apartment (really not much - keeping shoes off in the house, turn the lights off when we were out and keeping the little catcher in the bath so the pipes wouldn't get clogged) which are all things we'd do at home anyway. She lived on the same road but we never felt we were being watched. We have stayed in hotels in Manhattan previously but this was a much better option with more space and a more relaxing start to the day. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation with a bit more space.

Great 2BR in trendy Greenpoint!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice and comfortable apartment in Brooklyn. Key location near lots of great restaurants, parks and transportation (East River ferry, subway). The apartment is clean, with all the basics you'd need for a great stay. We (especially our 3 year old) liked it so much we decided to extend our stay. The neighborhood is a great base if you plan on visiting other parts of Brooklyn or head into Manhattan. The only reason I didn't give it a 5th star is because we had some trouble with the wifi, even once working it was pretty slow. Otherwise it was a great experience and I'd highly recommend it! If you have a car just be mindful of the NYC parking rules- you may need to move it every couple days to a different street.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review/note. I am delighted that your family had a great time in NY with Greenpoint as your base. I apologize for the trouble you had with wifi. We almost never have any trouble and when we do, it is usually due to external circumstances. Indeed, I found that there was work being done by the cable company in the area and most people I spoke with also had some issues around that time. Again, thank you for choosing our space/home. It was a pleasure to host your stay.

Beautifully furnished apartment in accessible neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our wonderful NY break, staying in this lovely apartment. Maryla was an attentive host, displaying flexibility 'above and beyond' as our inbound flight was running late and we did not arrive until very late in the evening; she was also available during our stay and would often pop her head round to check that we were all OK, and to see whether we needed anything, etc. The apartment is furnished with many beautiful paintings and tapestries, and had all the amenities we needed. It is a very short distance to nearby cafes, restaurants and local shops and a short hop to Greenpoint Ave station (getting us into central NYC in 20 mins or less). We benefited from Maryla's suggestions and recommendations about local services and places to visit ... just sad that we ran out of time before being able to fully explore this interesting area.
