Really nice place with everything you need for a great Williamsburg experience - location, comfort, ambiance and a great host.
Margaret was always available and really flexible. She even provided a list favorite places for brunch and dinner. Highly recommended!
I cannot say enough about this experience. Everything was perfect from check in to check out. Margaret was so flexible and helpful in every way. I've used airbnb multiple times in New York and this was by far the best experience I have had with it. The apartment was very clean and had tons of great books and amenities. I would recommend this place to anyone!
Margaret was a wonderful host.
The apartment was exactly as pictured and described. The apartment was very well kept, and inviting. She stocked the apartment with all needed essentials to boot.
The location was incredible. In a great neighborhood. Numerous quality restaurants, bars, shops, and parks in a close vicinity. Various modes of transit nearby.
Although I did not meet Margaret in person, she was very gracious. She responded quickly to any plausible questions. Additionally, she left very clear and concise directions for our stay. The key pickup with keycafe worked flawlessly.
I would gladly re-do the entire experience if possible.
Margaret was the perfect host, she welcomed us with one bottle of Brooklyn Winery and Mast Brother's chocolate.
clean, light, perfect location (2 minutes from L train and stop from Manhattan), plenty of things to do in Williamsburg, each time I contacted her she answered me with solutions.
I will love to stay there next time!
Margaret was awesome and so was her apartment! I live in the area and she was so easy to coordinate with for key exchange. She was also great about showing me around the place and telling me how everything worked and answering any questions we had while staying there. The building is new, nice and Margaret's apartment is beautifully decorated. I would recommend this to anyone!
We had a fantastic stay in Margaret's well located Williamsburg apartment. It was very secure and has fantastic views from the rooftop, which I can imagine would be a great place to hang out in summer. Margaret and Ryan were incredibly warm and welcoming with loads of advice about what to do, where to go and well, they are just good people!
About the Host, Margaret
I'm a self-employed digital product designer and strategist. I've been living in Brooklyn since 2012 after living in San Francisco for eight years. When I travel, I like walking around cities, going to galleries, coffee places, and reading.
As a guest, you can expect me to be independent, friendly, tidy, and hopefully fun too. When I stay in shared places, I'm generally happy to hang out with my hosts if they are around and want to, but I will also always do my own thing too.
As a host, you can expect me to be easy to coordinate with before, during, and after your stay. Though we may not meet in person since I rent my place out while I'm away, I'm always happy to provide recommendations for the neighborhood, activities, or otherwise.
I've also been using Airbnb since the early days and believe it is the best way to travel!
