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 Prospect Heights

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!!

Don't wait- best multibedroom apt in Brooklyn. Clean, updated and fantastic hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Brooklyn several times a year since our daughter moved there. This has to be one of the best apartments we have ever stayed at. Location is fabulous right next to a deli /market as well as a playground. The area is quiet and the apartment has fabulous Air Conditioning, Heating, refrigerator, hot water, etc, etc. The host family lives one floor away and we're always available if we needed them, which wasn't much at all.

If this apartment is available, do not hesitate, or you will miss out.

Beautiful , perfect home in fun great neighborhood. Walk to subway. Walk to great breakfast spots (recommend Shane’s). Walk to bars, groceries etc. We didn’t stay home much (I mean NYC!), but you could—very comfortable. Dimitri is helpful, flexible, and easy to work with. Highly recommend.

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.
