My stay with Naomi was comfortable and fun. She's generous and easy to get along with.
The bedroom is small but serviceable. I loved the memory foam mattress because I sometimes have trouble sleeping on mattresses which are too firm. The bedroom wall is paper thin and I could hear my neighbor on the other side of it snoring, but that didn't bother me. There was uneven heat in the apartment: my side was too warm and Naomi's too cold, but it wasn't a big deal.
I care about Internet speed so I measured it for you: 15/5 Mbps.
Having my own entrance gave just the right amount of privacy while still affording opportunities to hang out with Naomi in the kitchen when I felt like it.
If I ever want to stay in Brooklyn again then Naomi's place will be at the top of my list.
Naomi was a friendly, enthusiastic, welcoming host. It was fun to meet and talk with a native Brooklynite! She gave us all the information we needed to share her home. Our room was comfortable and the shower was hot with good pressure. Naomi met all our needs for our 4 day stay. Our accommodation was exactly as listed.
El apartamento está en una zona tranquila, pero bien conectada de Brooklyn. El hermano de Naomi ha compartido el apartamento con nosotros, pero apenas hemos coincidido mucho, por lo que hemos podido estar a nuestro aire. Aún así, ha estado dispuesto a ayudar en cualquier pregunta que le hemos hecho.
The reservation was canceled 15 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Staying with Naomi over the weekend was absolutely amazing. She greeted me with a smile (which means a lot to me) and made me feel welcome as soon as I arrived. The room was not only comfortable but was also very private. I highly recommend staying with her!
Naomi is very warm and welcoming. She generously shared her whole apartment through providing refrigerator space and access to the living room. She was extremely easy to work with, and when we had an emergency in mid-stay, she readily offered a partial refund.
I stayed at Naomi for 3 nights. Unfortunately she was away, so we didn't get to met her. The location was great, really close to 2 subway stops, easy to get anywhere in Brooklyn or Manhattan. The street was nice and quiet, away from busy traffic. Her recommendations in the neighborhood were great. The apartment was clean and tidy, and the room very comfortable with sweet homely touches. The only thing negative was that there was A LOT of noise from other apartments in the building, and people coming and going, I'd recommend taking earplugs if you're a light sleeper.

I have recently mastered the art of mango BBQ chicken wings, and beans. Weird but true, there are always beans in my fridge.
I enjoy alcohol and there is a 99% chance of me insisting on a guest taking a shot with me at some point during their stay. YOU'RE IN NEW YORK!!!!!
