Interaction with Guests
Please take note that I'm renting out a private room in a 2-bedroom apartment. So you'll be sharing the living room, bathroom, kitchen and patio with me. I'm away most of the time for work in the city but there may be times that we'll have breakfast together.
A cozy cafe a few blocks from the apartment will be perfect for brunch: Sunrise/Sunset on 351 Evergreen Avenue. If you're willing to walk further and you like a grungy, more hipstery coffee place, try Little Skips (941 Willoughby Ave.)
Gates Avenue station is half a block away from the apartment and it takes 15 minutes to get to lower Manhattan.
It takes about an hour from JFK to get to my place by subway and about 30 mins by taxi.
If you want to take the subway, take the AirTrain to Jamaica Center (get off at Sutphin Blvd) then transfer to the J train to Gates Ave.
Please don't forget to turn off all the lights and the AC/heater unit when you leave.
Please put dirty dishes, glasses and utensils in the dishwasher.
The apartment was beautiful and exactly how it was pictured on the listing. It was very clean and the bed was comfortable. We had the pleasure of meeting Charisse on our last day and were able to sit and chat with her for a little. She was very sweet and lovely to chat with. Would definitely love to stay here again if we had a chance!
Comfortable experience in a nice apartment with a gracious host - Charisse was great! Apartment has a nice room and is convenient to JMZ
Nestled in Bushwick, this charming apartment is perfect for guests who don't mind the lack of lift and the TV. (It's on the 3F and so good exercise!) Just a short one block walk away from Gates Ave train station (J & Z Line) which brings one direct to Manhattan's Canal street, this is a place for guests who wants to reside in a local neighborhood, as when one is walking around the area, there are hardly any tourists about. We fully appreciated the experience and its great to have a lovely bright skylit room to wake up in. The apartment is as depicted in the pics, and very clean, kudos to Charisse who is also very friendly and easy to talk to. She made sure our stay was comfortable and we enjoyed it immensely. Highly recommended!
Living with Charisse was a great experience. She is a very caring woman and overall wonderful hostess.
The room we stayed in was a little small but nice and tidy nonetheless – so nothing to complain about. The location was lovely and it was easy to catch a train to Manhattan. All in all a great Airbnb experience with incredible hospitality.
Charisse was a welcoming host with a beautiful and clean apartment. The bed was comfortable for two people and there is so much natural lighting from the skylight (roof window). The Bathroom was clean and the shower head felt like relaxing rain drops. She made us feel at home and was accommodating. Even when we needed to leave our luggage pass check out. Her apartment is near the subway (just one ride to downtown) which was very convenient. She even baked us a banana nut bread :) it was a pleasure staying in her apartment and having her as a host. Thank u again Charisse! Highly recommended ! :D
Charisse was extremely sweet and the apartment is very pretty and comfortable. She made us feel at home.
The skylight bedroom is exactly as described,bright and sunny. Perfect for an early riser like me as light pours in from skylight early in the morning.
