MaiMai’s place was my first Airbnb experience in New York city, and her place felt like home: cozy, special and particular. For me, feeling home after arriving from a long trip (from Europe) was very comfortable. As soon as I arrived, MaiMai realized that I was tired, and she gave me a warmful welcome, starting with a pleasant conversation, being followed by a detailed walk around her place and the neighborhood. I believe that this personal treatment was exceptional, which gives more value to this AirBNB option. Moreover, the place is very clean, quiet and well furnished. Just to give you an idea, in order to keep the place in its best shape, MaiMai cleans it several times per week, using a vast variety of cleaning products. This is the type of service is normally found in hotels. In relation to the bedroom, it is sunny and it has enough space to stay for a short or long-term stay. In this bedroom, you can wake up with birds singing in the morning, which is not normal in a city as New York. A part of being well cared, MaiMai should put an office table, a chair, and a valance, in order to give more privacy, just in case someone needs to do some work at home. At the end, all the descriptions and other reviews are pretty accurate. It is a lovely place in such an urban area. I will advise you to stay in MaiMai’s place. She is a nice host, being always cheerful and helpful.

MaiMai's place was a nice cozy private and secure place to stay for a couple of months or so. It is simple, reasonably quiet, and comfortable. Also it's in a really great area for transport as well as food options and other shops nearby. I was commuting to downtown Manhattan and for that it worked well. The listing photos show the apartment nicely and there are several windows/ a skylight which let the light in. The description is pretty accurate however it was requested that I bring my own towels which was okay really. As the title of this listing suggests, it is very cozy. One really nice thing is the guest room's street window with the fire-escape which surprisingly has a tree canopy next to it. I was not around most days, but we had a chat when we could. It was nice to hear about different things in New York/Brooklyn, get a few tips, and share some stories.

Quiet and nice neighborhood, I got what I needed: a nice place to rest after a long day at the company! :) MaiMai will highly value your privacy and keep the place clean and cozy.

Such a great neighborhood, and a great host. Clear understanding of house rules... ie- which glassware to use, specific places to place bathroom items and other belongings (and plenty of space for all of it in the bedroom, set with an empty closet, a large empty dresser with plenty of drawers, etc.) Note that this is a futon bed, not a regular mattress. Otherwise pictures make the place look perfect and it's lovely, with a lovely, quiet, respectable host.

MaiMai was a hospitable and kind host, she made me feel welcome and I felt comfortable sharing the space with her for a week. Her apartment was in a superb location in Brooklyn, right near the Smith St and Court St retail/restaurant/bars, close to the F,G,A,C,2,3 Subway lines, and within easy access of several Brooklyn neighborhoods. The room and apartment itself were light-filled and you could hear birds singing in the morning, which was lovely in such an urban area. MaiMai also kept everything very clean, including the kitchen and bathroom. I would stay here again if the need arose!

I stayed with MaiMai in Brooklyn for four weeks during May and June. The apartment is fantastic! Very comfortable and has a lot of character. I like the bedroom because the closet was big enough to hang all of my clothes, there is a 3-drawer dresser, and the bed is plenty big. The bed is not your luxury memory foam comfort style bed, but I never had a problem getting a good night's sleep. The apartment location was perfect for me! VERY close to lots of restaurants/coffee shops, about a 15-minute walk to the Heights, a block away from a very convenient subway stop, Bergen Street. I also always felt safe there. MaiMai is extremely accommodating and sweet. When I arrived she had everything prepared for me, she even had divided the fridge space in half for me! She was very helpful in recommending bars and restaurants, she has great taste! She is willing to be as much or as little involved in your stay as you want. If you want to come home and have alone time, she will leave you alone. If you want to chat or go out to dinner, she will do that. She is a wonderful host. I would absolutely stay here again in my next trip to Brooklyn!

Clean. Easy. Tidy. Works really well as a base to hit Brooklyn from. MaiMai is easy to get along with and has a neat home. I found corresponding with her very easy and timeous. My only slight negative would be that the room is somewhat austere. But it works fine if you're looking for more function than form.

I'm a freelance production coordinator working in the entertainment industry, such as Fashion, Music, TV, Commercial, Theater, and Radio.
I'm very easy-going, laid back, and clean! I like to have fun, but I'd like to keep all the parties outside the apartment. You're in NYC, and just steps away from all the fun and great food!! Go out to have great time and come home to relax!!
I make the apartment quiet and comfortable!!
