About Dimitri Moderbacher

I'm from California and Austria, have been living in NYC since 1998. I'm a musician. I love living in Brooklyn, because it seems to be the perfect combination of small town and big city, Europe and the US, friendly neighborhood feel and cosmopolitan attitude.

Dimitri Moderbacher purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Dimitri Moderbacher chose Brooklyn

All of us have lived in Brooklyn for 18 years (me, my wife, my brother, his wife). It's a great place to live and work!

The Best in Brooklyn!

  • 5 of 5

The best place to stay in Brooklyn! Owner is easy to reach, accommodating, flexible and generous. Rare find for the city...4 bedrooms! Plenty of room for the whole family. Quick stop groceries literally 20 feet away. Parking easy (didn't think that was possible in NYC, but it is!!). Can't wait to come back...thank you so much!!

Best place to stay in the NYC area!

  • 5 of 5

I could not say enough good things about this place and the owner. Communication was great from the beginning and he was so accommodating, making everything so easy for our group of 4 couples. The apartment was immaculate, quiet, and convenient to everywhere we wanted to go. The neighborhood is beautiful! We want to come back again very soon! Thank you for everything, Dimitri!

Dimitri is wonderful and accommodating! Our stay could not be more comfortable.

Location to Brooklyn Museum and Botanical Gardens was a big plus as the Botanical Gardens are magnificent!!!!! I would highly recommend. We had several meals locally that were delicious! Thank you Dimitri :)

Fantastic Stay in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I planned a reunion trip to NYC for a few months and ended up renting this VRBO. Dimitri was fantastic - super easy to communicate with, very accommodating and provided a binder of helpful resources. The apartment was the perfect size for 4 couples, with plenty of room to hang out (unlike a lot of other new york apartments). Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking to stay in BK - if you are planning to go into take the train into manhattan every day, just know its about a 10 min walk.

"At home" in Underhill Apartment 2

  • 5 of 5

"We have just returned home to Victoria BC Canada after spending a week in NYC where our son was married. A few weeks before our travel plans were cemented, I went online to see if a furnished apartment was available in Brooklyn and did we luck out with this one! Dimitri, the landlord was more than helpful before we arrived and accommodated our every need while staying there. He even sent directions for me to give to the cab driver at the airport so the fare would be cheaper and it worked!

The place was very clean, had everything we needed in the kitchen for making big family style meals, great appliances, was tastefully decorated with lively bed linens and new furniture, bedside lamps for reading (yeah!), ample supply of towels for the eight of us, games to play, free wireless that was so appreciated by the students in our group, great TV set-up with movies, comfortable leather couches for viewing, convenient corner store right next door, very quiet area, safe to walk around even at night and only a short walk to two subway stations for easy rides into Manhattan. We ate at a Middle Eastern restaurant two blocks away that was great and on our walks found others we would try another time. Everything we needed was within walking distance and there were lots of organic foods available in the markets.

I would highly recommend this rental apartment to anyone going to NYC. "
