• My native language is Brazilian Portuguese and I’m fluent in English. I can also communicate in Spanish and I understand a little bit of Italian.

EXTRA DETAILS (Fees and extra information)
• All bookings are required to put down a security deposit, which is done through the airbnb site.
• The cleaning/laundry/guest maintenance fee is the only thing that you will pay in CASH to your hostess. The fee varies according to the number of guests and the number of nights booked. Please understand that I would do it thru airbnb but I don’t have the option in their system to set up variable prices and charge the guests fairly according to the number of nights & the amount of guests. The price is $20 per person/per week, unless you stay between one or two nights then it is $10 per person
• For guests that stays longer than 11 days, on the 8th day of your stay the sheets and towels can be replaced for cleaned ones
• Monthly Stay Guests: Your sheets and towels will be replaced weekly, if you are going to stay the majority of the time in the apt (because you work from home or need to study, an extra $30 needs to be paid to me in cash in order to cover the electrical bill.

• Please keep your bedroom clean and the sheets & towels free of stains. If an accident happens please tell me know right way so I can treat the fabric with stain remover and give you clean linens.
• Ladies, if you use heavy make-up I can provide darker color linens. Please don’t leave dirty dishes in your room to prevent bugs, and please don’t change its installations. Small furniture/items can be moved around to accommodate your needs, but they need to be put back in place before you check out.
• I’m responsible for your bedroom maintenance (vacuum and clean), and this is a weekly service. Since I’m the only person responsible for this service, you can be worry-free that your personal belongings are secure and I will inform you the date prior the cleaning and laundry day in order not to disturb you

PETS
• If you have a small, friendly, trained & spayed/neutered dog (maximum 20 lbs.) or a cat that you would like to bring with you I’m okay with that (my pets are vaccinated, they are spayed/neutered and friendly with other animals-as long they are small).
• There is no charge for your pet stay (unless he or she was not properly trained and the pet gives your host extra cleaning work, then an extra $20 per week needs to be paid in cash to your host.
• If you need me to walk your dog while you are out, there is a $15 fee per day for 3 walks a day. Please note, only ONE extra pet guest is allowed at the time.

CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT TIMES:
• The check-in always has the priority on the time
• The check-in and check-out times are set up as flexible in airbnb, but I need you to work with me and be flexible too
• Your check-out time is based on the arrival time of the next guest, i.e. if a new guest(s) arrives at the same day of your check-out day
• The time of your check-out is definitely flexible if there is no guest(s) arriving on the same day
• You can arrive or leave super early or super late, but please make sure you talk to me first and get my confirmation, I need to plan my schedule ahead of time
• Between guests in the same day: I will need enough time to have the bedroom ready for the next guest(s), 2-3 hours for light cleaning (after short stays) or 4 to 5 hours (after longer terms)
As an example this is how I can help you: if you are leaving/flying later at night, but I have a new guest checking-in during the day, you may leave your suitcases ready in the living room so you may still enjoy your day and be worry free that your belongings are safe and you can pick it up whatever time you need.

NEIGHBORHOOD HISTORY:
• In most major crime categories, BAY RIDGE RANKS AMONG THE TOP 10 SAFEST FOR THE ENTIRE CITY AND IS AMONG THE SAFEST NEIGHBORHOODS IN BROOKLYN
• Bay Ridge has earned its reputation as a place where New Yorkers can enjoy the fruits of their labors. The neighborhood came in No. 7 in per capita crimes on the DNA info site ranking of 69 neighborhoods.
• In the heart of Bay Ridge- Brooklyn, extremely safe (day or night), family oriented area surrounded by parks, churches, restaurants and stores.
• Much of Brooklyn has only named streets, but Bay Ridge and some other boroughs have numbered streets and numbered avenues (making it very easy for you to navigate).
• Bay Ridge is the last solidly middle class neighborhood left in Brooklyn. It’s safe, it’s affordable and people here care about where they live. Just walk down any block and you’ll notice even the tiniest home will be spotlessly clean and kept up, and decorated for every holiday.
• Bay Ridge has many international restaurants and bars, especially along 3rd and 5th Avenue; it's a main commercial strip.
• Brooklyn contains dozens of distinct neighborhoods, representing many of the major ethnic groups found within the New York City area. Brooklyn has long been a magnet for immigrants, and many ethnic groups dominate a particular neighborhood for a time, although the neighborhoods are ever-changing as populations move in and out.
• In Bay Ridge are mainly concentrated Italian Americans where there are many Italian restaurants and pizzerias, Irish Americans and their influence you will find on the pubs, Greeks, Scandinavians (the protestant churches go back more than 100 years and were built in a Scandinavian style), Norwegians where you will find amazing bakeries (they started the local medical centers, and some point Norwegian was taught in the local high school), and today Arab Americans (Christians & Muslims) where there are many Middle Eastern restaurants, hookah lounges, halal shops, Islamic shops and mosques.
• Many refer to the community as "Brooklyn's Gold Coast." A popular neighborhood attraction is the 69th Street Pier, at Bay Ridge Ave (aka 69th Street) and Shore Road. This popular pier is a favorite to the local fishermen who fish there daily. From the pier you have the best view of Verrazano Bridge, our famous lady; the Statue of Liberty & lower Manhattan.
• Very close to the pier is located the Owl's Head Park. This park is a 27-acre walking park that has a state of the art skate park, children's playground and basketball courts.
• Every November the NYC Marathon starts in Staten Island and the runners cross the Verrazano Bridge and run along 4th Ave & they all pass at the corner of the building.
• Did you know the 1977 movie Saturday Night Fever and the 2008 What Happens in Vegas was set in Bay Ridge?
• During the summer you can go to Coney Island a 30 min train ride and enjoy the beach, the oldest amusement park in the country and visit the NY Aquarium.
• On a 20 min train ride you can go visit the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, or Prospect Park, or the Brooklyn Museum, all located next to each other.
• Love to play golf?...just few blocks away from the apt, the Dyker Beach Golf Course is a beautiful 18-hole championship course located in the heart of Brooklyn, below the shadows of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge. Dyker Beach Golf Course is convenient to get to, located close to both the Belt Parkway and the BQE. If you want to use public transportation the golf club is located just 4 blocks from the R (email hidden) Station and across the street from a Manhattan express bus stop, from the apt a car service (taxi) will cost you only $7.00.

  • Adrianna's room is perfect! The room has everything I needed. The bed is big and very comfortable, also there is an air conditioner and a heater. I liked the way her apartment is organized because the room is close but separated from the living room, bathroom and kitchen, which gives us more privacy. Adrianna is very friendly, she was born in Brazil as well as me, we have talked for hours during my stay. She has two adorable pets, they are very nice and educated! The location is good because is only one block away from the subway, and it took me only 45 to 50 minutes to be at Times Square by using the subway. I am for sure staying there again when I go to NYC! Thank you Adrianna for everything!

    O quarto oferecido pela Adrianna é perfeito! O quarto tem tudo que eu precisava. A cama é grande e muito confortável, também há um ar condicionado e um aquecedor. Gostei da forma como o apartamento dela está organizado porque o quarto é perto, mas separado da sala de estar, banheiro e cozinha, o que nos dá mais privacidade. Adrianna é muito amigável, ela nasceu no Brasil, assim como eu. Conversamos por horas durante a minha estadia. Ela tem dois animais adoráveis, eles são muito legais e educados! A localização é boa, porque é apenas um quarteirão de distância do metrô, e ele me levou apenas 45 a 50 minutos para estar na Times Square. Ficarei lá novamente quando eu ir para Nova York! Obrigado Adrianna por tudo!

  • I have never had a better experience than with Adrianna! She is super kind, professional, attentive, and goes above and beyond to make sure your visit is good.

    I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone. The location is super close to the subway, as well as food, laundry, and a movie theatre! The room is gorgeous, and the bed is heavenly.

    Be sure to have a cup of the delicious coffee she makes!

    Adrianna is a lovely human being, and I hope that you think of this listing for your stay. New York can be a tough trip on an outsider, but she makes it affordable and worth it. I will contact her first for any future New York visits!!

  • Adrianna is someone that you meet and want to keep in your life within 20 minutes. My boyfriend and I stayed with her while we were apartment hunting in New York and her tips, advice, and help made our experience so much better. While we were stressed she was so helpful and encouraging. Being surrounded by such positive energy helped us feel at ease and at home very easily. Her apartment is beautiful and clean, you can tell she takes pride in making her guests comfortable and safe and it makes the stay so wonderful. We stayed in the private room which had the most comfortable bed ever and more amenities than a nice hotel. All the little things that you forget that you need are available. The neighborhood is safe, accessible, and near the subway. On top of it all there are two friendly little dogs that are happy to cuddle if you're interested! Highly recommend! Easily the best/nicest/most comfortable place we've stayed (ever, not even just airbnb).

  • Hello! I stayed with Adriana for over two weeks. Best experience! Adriana is the most fabulous host. She was so incredibly helpful, I arrived around 2am in the morning and Adriana stayed up to greet me and check me in. From day one she helped me with information on the neighborhood and New York. She always offered me coffee and tea, and we had some lovely chats. It was so nice to stay with her!
    The room is wonderful. So cozy, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The mattress is the most comfortable mattress I've slept on in my life. I'm usually a light sleeper and extremely fussy with my accommodations, but this place was perfect. The room is also quiet, you can hardly hear any noise from the street. The rest of the apartment is lovely too, with a nice clean bathroom and kitchen. Adriana's two dogs are adorable!
    I also really like this neighborhood. It felt like an authentic Brooklyn neighborhood with delis, cafes and restaurants. The subway is close, and as a solo female, I felt comfortable walking around at night. Everything is safe and convenient. I personally would rather stay here than in Manhattan. I had a great time at Adriana's! If I come back to New York I would love to stay here again.

  • Adriana is an amazing and comforting host. She is always willing to help you with anything you need and was always willing to make special accommodations. The room was clean and well kept with heating and nice natural light. In a great location on 5th Ave in Bay Ridge near many stores and shops and great restaurants.

    Adriana really made my stay great. A+ Service!

  • Adriana will make you feel that you are staying in your home. She walked me thru top hot spots to have a great NYC experience while saving some money in your pocket with local best tips. She offered free coffee and chocolate every morning and the whole aparatment is clean and well mantained. She lives in a great location just a block away from the subway. My next vacation in NYC I"ll defiantly stay in Adriana's

About
Every visitor is treated by me as a V.I.G. “Very Important Guest” … because you deserve it! I'm a very calm & peaceful person. I was born in Sao Paulo, but I have been living in New York for 25 years. I believe a good host or hostess is warm, caring, gracious, welcoming and gives the impression that the guest is the most important person in the world and that nothing is too much trouble to ensure their comfort and contentment. I’m honored to offer excellent hospitality to my guest(s); being a host is more than just letting people stay at my places, hosting involves taking care of an individual that is new to the area and wants guidance and an experience to remember. I believe that one key ingredient to be a good hostess is to have the ability to get along with all types of people who will be staying at my places. You will feel very welcome & safe if you stay with me :)
