Julie and Neil are very helpful and accommodating. The house is in a central location near the subway, parks, and shops. It was easy for us to get in and out of Manhattan easily.

We had a wonderful time staying at Julie and Neil's place! It was super close to public transportation and made it a lot easier to go around the town. We didn't get to talk much, but we did meet Julie and she was really sweet and helpful, I would recommend this place to anyone who's looking for a nice and affordable place in New-York City! :)

We enjoyed our stay at Julies and Neils home and it was great to live in the area of Brooklyn to really get to know New York.

Julie & Neil User Profile

We are both NYC born and bred, but Julie lived in the Midwest for 12 years. We are raising our family in beautiful Kensington, Brooklyn - a mosaic of residents who hail from all across the globe.

We love hosting guests via AirBNB in our spacious Brooklyn house. It has been wonderful for our kids meeting folks from around the country and the world!

Julie is passionate about NYC history and all the hidden gems of the five boroughs. Some of our favorite places in Brooklyn include: Prospect Park, Coney Island, Brooklyn's Chinatown, Brooklyn Heights Promenade, The Brooklyn Museum and Red Hook.

We love to travel, but with a family we don't get to go very far these days. Some favorite locales include Petra, Jordan; Dublin, Ireland; and Charleston, SC. Dream destinations include New Zealand, China and Costa Rica.
