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.

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!

Lovely brownstone. Convenient to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My two sisters and I stayed here for six days and loved it! David was on the stoop to welcome us as we arrived and he and Jacqui were wonderful in helping us with recommendations. They provided us with passes to MOMA and the Brooklyn Museum, which saved us some cash. It was super easy to get to the subway stops and the bodega and wine shop were close by. Every morning and evening we climbed out the kitchen window to take advantage of the deck for morning tea and evening wine. We're over 55 so we had a few laughs over our techniques for getting out but it made for some fun memories!!! Beds were comfy. We weren't there for long during the day but had everything we needed. We definitely would recommend this wonderful home and stay here again when we're in NYC!

Great Location, excellent accommodations. It was the perfect fit for us.

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse in the heart of Brooklyn is great. It has everything we needed to get us ready everyday for our trip to the city. Easy access (2-3 min walking) to the subway made it extremely convenient for us as we made daily trips to the city. The apartment is cozy and it felt like an extension of home. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals and snacks. High enough to keep the noise away.

We would definitely consider coming back and stay here again.
