About Melissa

Melissa and Marcello purchased their dream home in 2008. It was a brownstone over a hundred years old and needed a full gut renovation. Marcello is an architect from Roma, Italy and designed the home in a contemporary style filled with light and air. Melissa is an artist who exhibits her work in NY and internationally. They have two daughters 5 and 2 years old who keep them very busy and happy.

Melissa was a great host and the place was quaint. Exactly what we needed in a perfect and safe area

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The place is nice and well equipped with everything you might need away from home. Beds are very comfortable and the only thing I'd recommend is a slightly bigger TV for late night relaxing. Not a deal breaker at all!

Ideal location for exploring Brooklyn & Manhattan

  • 4 of 5

290 Carroll is just as described: simple decor, super-clean, well-equipped for eating-in. Access to washer&dryer was handy, especially after coming home dripping wet after being caught by sudden, unexpected rainstorm. Bathroom is dark; if you wear make-up, you'll want an extra light or be ready to use bedroom mirror. Comfy beds and adequate closet/dresser space. Rocking chair and sofa in living area were relaxing at the end of long walking days. WiFi was speedy enough. AC worked well, although high humidity and temperatures pushed its limits — and this was in September!

Melissa was always available via phone or email to field inquiries, even though she was not always present upstairs.

Neighborhood living is a wonderful way to experience NYC and Brooklyn, in particular. Easy access to F-train for travel into Manhattan and downtown Brooklyn (including Brooklyn Bridge area). Carroll Gardens offers an interesting demographic mix that makes for good people-watching and restaurant exploring, especially those Italian bakeries! Varied cuisine among many nearby restaurants. Bikes available, and if our stay had been longer, it would have been fun to ride as far as Prospect Park: next trip?!?

Yes, I'll be back — likely in springtime when botanical gardens (BKLN and Bronx) are in full flower.

Great location for our stay in Gowanus

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as pictured in VRBO. It was extremely warm (90+) during our stay. The air conditioning in the unit was a real relief. It was an easy walk to the "Smith street" amenities. I recommend this property to anyone staying in the area. The high quality (clean and well-maintained), "easy" check-in and property amenities will definitely factor in our return to this property.

Comfortable Stay - great location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a good visit at this property - great access to the subway and many nice restaurants

and local food shops. Parking on the street is reasonable. The apartment was clean, comfortable, and

well appointed - we would suggest getting a larger flat screen tv. We would stay again when visiting

the area.
