My daughter and I loved this location. Lisa was open and warm, even greeting us with fresh baked Pumpkin Bread. She even helped us plan some of our sightseeing. The location is the best in Brooklyn! Its close to the subway (6 Blocks) and easy to get into Manhattan. We would definitely recommend this host/location.
We stayed for 2 months at Lisas place and we had a great stay! It's a big apartment and the neighbourhood is very nice with lots of cosy coffeshops and grocery stores. We had the privacy we wanted and got help we needed. Lisa was very helpful and kind to us, a great host! And her boys were really sweet! The bed was big but a bit uncomfterbel. But overall a great stay!
I stayed September at Lisa’s place. The room was exactly as described. Lisa has considerately taken into account the comfort of the guests, for example there is a nightlight in the room and toilet, plenty of towels available and there was also a brochure of Brooklyn and map of Brooklyn busses in the room. The bedroom has AC, which was great in the hot and moist beginning of September. The internet connection was mostly OK in the mornings (although it disconnected at least once during every (website hidden) call I made), but in evenings the disconnections were frequent, which made working impossible. The neighborhood is lovely, although there is some distance to subway.
The family kept mostly in their own rooms so I did not meet them often. However, my breakfast time was same as that of the boys and the kitchen was sometimes crowded. Only after I had left, I learned that Lisa would have preferred privacy also in the kitchen and she actually cut my visit a month short mainly because of this. I wish she would have just said that she wished more privacy and we would all have had a more pleasant month.
The place is nice for a private stay but if you are wishing for a local experience, this might not be your number one choice.
After our first week together, Emilia was kindly asked to find other accommodations for her second month (giving her 3 weeks to search). My request to her was not due to "privacy" as she states, but a difference in personalities which made us uncomfortable.
Yes, we do keep to ourselves for the most part. This offers our guests a sense of privacy while staying in our home, but I am always available for questions or assistance. I have spent many nice hours in conversation with guests, giving local recommendations and sharing stories over coffee or a drink when time allows.
First of all, I am a third year medical student rotating in New York Methodist Hospital. Lisa's apartment is the perfect location (about 5 min walking distance) to the hospital. It is quiet (great for studying and catching up on sleep debt) because the surrounding area is family-oriented. I always feel safe no matter what matter time I get back or get up for the crazy hospital hours. The location is really fun too; there are tons of restaurants and cafe on 7 ave. I really love how close everything is (F and G train).
Lisa also respects your privacy as she stays most of the time in the back of the house. Because of my hours, I don't really see anyone. The bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, and living are very clean and bright. The desk in the bedroom is on the smaller side but it does support the weight of my books with laptop. The bed is on the tiny bit uncomfortable side but I am so exhausted I fall asleep anyways. There is a working a/c unit in the room as well as the curtain that covers the window that others have complained about in the previous reviews. My only formal complaint is the internet. I use the internet heavily to read up medical topics assigned to me. It does work but the signal is weak and goes in and out. I often have to reset it. All in all, this is a great apartment to stay as a medical student (and if I weren't studying, I would so take advantage of the beauties of Park Slope!!)
Unfortunately, yes, these older brownstones do have sporadic issues with the internet sometimes going out. This is usually rectified by resetting it. A pain yes, but one of the downsides to a residential apartment in Park Slope.
It is my utmost concern to ensure my guests are comfortable and happy, thus I am glad to hear that your overall stay was a pleasant one. We do our best to ensure a quiet and respectful environment for anyone staying in our home.
It was truly a pleasure meeting you and your husband. Much success in your medical rotation and future career in NY!
This was my first airbnb experience and it couldn't be better. I spent almost one month in Lisa's place and I had a great stay, the house has everything you could need. The bedroom has AC, the bed is confy and they even installed a curtain for me.
The neighborhood is amazing... calm, safe and with a lot of restaurants, groceries stores, shops and Propect Park is two blocks away.
Esta ha sido mi primera experiencia en airbnb y no ha podido ser mejor. He estado casi un mes en casa de Lisa y todo ha ido perfecto, la casa tiene todo lo que puedes necesitar. La habitación tiene aire acondicionado, la cama es cómoda e incluso pusieron una cortina en la ventana porque me molestaba la luz.
El barrio es increíble... tranquilo, sin ruido, seguro y con un montón de tiendas y restaurantes alrededor. Además Propect Park está a dos manzanas.
Lisa was a sweet and gracious host. Even though the accommodations did not meet our needs she was very gracious and offered us a refund. It is in a great neighborhood with good access to plenty of places to go get coffee and eat. Be sure to inquire about the presence of a curtain or window cover in the bedroom before you book or be prepared for the lack of privacy and morning sun in your face.
Sorry to hear the room did not fit your needs. Its been quite accomodating for all of my other guests. As your stay was just at the beginning of the heat wave, we had not yet had a chance to install the A/C unit for that room. There is dedicated A/C in the room now and a curtain to block the sun. My guest's happiness is most important, thus I felt it best to offer you a refund and give you a chance to find an option where you felt more comfortable. All the best!
Lisa's apartment is great and just as described. The room is spacious and clean, the rest of the apartment is comfortable and stylish, and the location is unbeatable. The building is on a quiet, lovely street between two avenues with tons of good stores and restaurants, and it's a short walk to the beautiful Prospect Park. Lisa and her sons were very kind and easy going... It felt like we had known them for much longer than our week-long stay. I'd just note that the bed was not the most comfortable, and Lisa was not always available during the stay to answer any questions that came up.
