We just returned to Minnesota after a great Thanksgiving weekend visiting family in Greenpoint.
Thank you Maryla and Geoff. Your apartment is the most comfortable we have stayed in over four years of visiting. We would highly recommend it to others and already are looking forward to staying again.
Perfect base for a family vacation in NY
We are a Swedish family of 4 that stayed in Maryla’s apartment for one week. The apartment and the area are absolutely perfect to have as base for a New York vacation.
The apartment is comfortable and well equipped. Everything from beds to kitchen are of high quality. The apartment is well planned and provides good sleep and space for 4-5 persons.
The close neighborhood is quiet and dominated by neat town houses. You feel safe even in late night. You are within short walking distance to everything you need; metro stations, grocery stores, bars, restaurants and shops. Via the nearby metro station you can be on central Manhattan within 20 minutes. There are also a lot of things to explore in Greenpoint and Williamsburg, especially in the evenings. Both areas are dynamic with a nice atmosphere. Some highlights to recommend are the bars on Franklin Street, Whiskey Burger on Manhattan Avenue (the whiskey sauce !!!) , Sun set from Northern Territory roof bar, Paulie Gee’s on Greenpoint Avenue – fun, lively place - probably the best pizza in New York, late evening in Transmitter Park admiring Manhattan skyline.
Finally, Maryla is fantastic hostess that takes really good care of her guests. It was always a pleasure to have a chat with Maryla and her husband Geoffrey. They are such nice friendly people.
I can strongly recommend this place.
Quiet, elegant, well situated place in Brooklyn
Maryla's place was exactly as described and in photos. It was impeccably clean and well organized. The kitchen was pleasantly situated for lots of light and well stocked for our light cooking. The apartment also is very quiet and well located in Brooklyn. Wonderful place to stay and Maryla was a gracious host.
A Wonderful Gem in Brooklyn
What can I say it was the perfect accommodation for our family of 5. Maryla waited up and met us even though we arrived at 1am in the morning. Nothing was a problem. She had great local information and went out of her way to make our stay comfortable.
Green point was a perfect location. 250 metres to the nearest subway station so each day we would set off for another adventure whether it was heading to Manhattan or exploring local neighbourhoods.
The local food was varied and really reasonable when feeding hungry teenagers. It helped having a supermarket close by.
We felt very safe no matter what time we arrived back from our daily adventures.
I highly recommend and we will be back to stay when we head back to NY next.
Bonito, amplio y cómodo apartamento en Brooklyn
Nadie se puede imaginar que puedes estar en un tranquilo apartamento de estilo victoriano británico en Brooklyn, a 25 minutos en metro de Times Square, hasta que llegas a la casa de Maryla Cobb. Puedes ir a Manhattan (centro o sur) por dos estaciones de metro próximas o bien ir por el East Side Ferry, que para a cinco minutos del piso y te lleva por el río East hasta el sur de Manhattan disfrutando de todo el Skyline.
En el piso todos los detalles son de gran calidad: sábanas, útiles de cocina, toallas, vajilla, etc. Maryla se preocupa de que estés a gusto y cuida el más mínimo detalle para que te encuentres como en casa (cafetera, tostadora, lavavajillas, etc), además de que te recomienda sitios para visitar. Los fotos de la Web se corresponden a la realidad del piso pero no recogen la tranquilidad del sitio: no hay ningún ruido en el exterior. La zona es muy tranquila con comercios y restaurantes a dos pasos. La ropa se lava y seca en la lavandería que está a la vuelta de la esquina y Maryla te deja la tarjeta que se precisa. No falta detalle, pero si echaras en falta algo, ella vive en la planta baja de la casa y está dispuesta a solucionarlo.
