We had a wonderful stay with Katherine. She was very friendly, welcoming, great company and went out of her way to help us with public transport advice and sight seeing tips. The room and bed were very comfortable, we had our own bathroom and we were able to use kitchen facilities. Convenient location, very clean and a safe neighbourhood. Highly recommended.
My stay at Katherines apartment was awesome. She answered all my questions so efficiently weeks before we even got to the city. Upon arrival, she welcomed us in her lovely condo. Her space was very spacious, very clean and organized. She even gave us a cabinet of things that we forgot to bring! She took the time to show us around, give us instructions in the place and how to get around. She let us have our own private space and was always available to answer our questions. She even suggested places to eat and help us find a pizza place at 11PM (which was the best pizza ever).
Katherine was an awesome host, super nice and accommodating! Hope to stay with Katherine again in the future. Bonus, she made coffee for us every morning!
Friendly and flexible host. We basically had entire floor with livingroom since her bedroom was in downstairs. Everything was nice and tidy but I bet the room might get really hot during the summer because at least during our stay there was no a/c.
We had a great stay. The flat and the room were lovely. Katherine treated us with some nice cake and coffee. She's a very nice person, very interesting. She had great suggestions on what to do in New York. We always felt safe in the neighbourhood. 10 minutes walk to the Utica avenue Metro stop with line A and C. We could be quickly in Manhattan. We would come back without hesitation :)
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Katherine, très accueillante, souriante et toujours prête à donner de bons conseils!
L'appartement est spacieux et très propre, la salle de bain privative est un plus vraiment appréciable.
Katherine a pris le soin de nous préparer un très bon gateau au chocolat pour nous souhaiter la bienvenue et son café et excellent.
En bref, je vous recommande vivement de séjourner chez elle.
Katherine est vraiment une "super hôte". Elle est prévenante, aidante et très accueillante. Elle nous a donné de bons conseils tant sur la vie quotidienne que sur les sorties ou les choses à voir. Elle nous a fait confiance en s'absentant plusieurs jours et nous a mis à disposition son appartement en prenant soin de nous louer des DVD à la bibliothèque du quartier et en nous laissant sa carte si on devait imprimer des documents !
Son appartement est très agréable, bien équipé, très propre. La chambre est super, spacieuse, avec des rangements et le lit est bon.
La salle de bain privative est un vrai plus !
Le quartier est bien desservi. Il faut environs 15 à 20 minutes pour rejoindre le Sud de Manhattan. On est dans une partie de Brooklyn très agréable, encore en cours de rénovation, avec une vraie mixité. Nous nous sommes toujours sentis en sécurité.
La rue de Katherine est moyennement passante et plutôt calme dans l'ensemble. Un super séjour !
About the Host, Katherine
I love traveling and hosting travelers. As a long-time New Yorker, I have hosted many friends from around the world and am happy to extend my home to the AirBnB universe. The rest of my spare time is devoted to cooking and eating out, music, skiing and reading about the obscure travel adventures of others.
