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 !
This is how it should be! Everything is just perfect and makes you feel comfortable right from the first moment. The room is of generous size, everything is perfectly clean. And as an added bonus you will get a host who is way beyond any five-star-rating!
Katherine was fantastic! She had everything completely prepared and clean when we arrived, and had even provided bananas for us in case we needed a snack. She was very helpful when we had questions and provided great recommendations for places to eat.
The room is very much as described and was quite comfortable. The condo is close enough to the subway and it was a quick subway ride into Manhattan. We didn't spend much time there except to sleep, but when we were there it was quiet and everything was great.
The experience was easy, straightforward and relaxing!
Staying at Katherine's wonderful place was so much better than I could have imagined! not only was everything clean, thoughtful, and easy to figure out, Katherine was very easy to contact in the event I needed information or help of any sort. The house and neighborhood are quiet which was quite nice after noisy days of travel, and very close to a subway stop (about a 10 minute walk). The neighborhood has markets, restaurants, and amenities nearby.
I loved staying at Katherine's place and felt it was a charming and wonderful place to stay during the duration of my trip.
Our host met us at the door and helped us upstairs where we were greeted by the smell of freshly baked cake--yummers--and shown the room,bathroom,etc...it was a few blocks from the train and up the block from a deli/grocery which made it convenient to make our own breakfast in the shared kitchen. Katherine was available for questions and help and was a most gracious host.
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.
