For extra guests we will have a queen blow up bed available. Guests are of course welcome to hang out with us, whatever makes them comfortable.
The kitchen and the upstairs living area and bathroom will be shared.
Interaction with Guests
We will be here to greet the guest and answer and questions/give keys etc. We will be present but we come and go. I will also provide my mobile number if there's anything I can help my guest with during their stay.
Other Things to Note
You can also help yourself to anything in the fridge or freezer. I will also have basic toiletries available to our guest.
This is a non-smoking house. However, there is a patio where you can. We also have a shoe cubby by the front door where shoes that are worn outside are to be be placed. No outside guest aside from the individuals that reserved/booked are allowed. Other than that we are pretty relaxed.
We had a wonderful time here. They were great hosts, very warm and helpful. The room was beautiful and Salem's attention to detail gave a touch of luxury to our experience. The local area had nice restaurants and bars just around the corner and public transport was close by. We would certainly go back.
My place in newyork is perfect. The location is a little bit far from manhattan downtown, but the transportation is very convenient. Most of all the host of this house is really great, they try to do everything for us. I have a very good memory here and I strongly recommend this house.
Salem and John were very friendly. John even offered to help with our baggage when we arrived. Before we arrived they moved a toddler bed into the space for our baby which was a nice touch. The house was very nice and the downstairs area was very roomy. The house was clean and orderly. It was nice to have a bed, full couches, internet and internet connected tv, a printer, and washer and dryer available. Salem and John made sure that we knew we could use the kitchen and went so far as to offer food and drinks in the fridge. I always felt welcomed and at ease with them and at no time felt like we were a bother. The bus stops might as well be on their front stoop. There is street parking on the block. We left early and got in late, so we didn't spend much time with Salem, but when we did speak she was really nice. We did our thing and they did theirs and all was well in Red Hook.
Salem and her husband John are incredibly nice and warm people. The house is very beautiful, in a very nice neighbourhood and very comfortable.
Salem and John thought about every little thing required by travellers and had them ready for us. We are very happy to have spent time with them and would love to do so again in the future.
Salem was a wonderful host!!!! The room was huge, warm and inviting! Her place is just 7-8 blocks from the subway, and there is plenty of FREE street parking. Every morning Salem would ask if we wanted breakfast, she even packed us a goodie bag of fresh fruit and other snacks for our drive back to Ohio!
Nos hôtes nous ont accueilli de façon très chaleureuse dans leur maison et en toute confiance, comme des amis. L'appartement est aménagé avec beaucoup de goût. La pièce en sous-sol mise à disposition est vaste avec des toilettes indépendantes (nous avions réservé les deux lits disponibles nous étions donc seuls à partager cet espace). Si le quartier peut sembler peut-être peu engageant sur Street View, il est en fait tranquille et familial et nous n'avons à aucun moment ressenti un quelconque sentiment d'insécurité, que ce soit sur le trajet de l'appartement au métro à toutes heures (ligne F - 9th Smith street) , ou aux alentours. C'était notre première expérience sur RbnB et nous en gardons un excellent souvenir.
Salem and her family are wonderful hosts!! The other comments describe the neighborhood and the set up well. It is a transitioning area, but I never felt especially unsafe walking alone at night and there are good bars and restaurants in walking distance. There are two small children living in the home, and there is no door to the basement area, so it isn't always quiet, but they are well behaved.
