Erica's place was just what I was looking for. Very clean, quiet and in a good location in Clinton Hill.
Erica herself was very friendly and helpful. She introduced me to a great coffee shop down the street called Urban Vintage where I ended up going almost every morning for coffee.
I can highly recommend staying at Erica's place.
I spent 2 and a half months living on the top floor of the house during the summer. The house was really accommodating and comfortable, the other housemates were great to live with and be around with in the communal kitchen, and the location was perfect as it's so close to the AC and G lines to get around. Erica was always a text away and was always there to answer any questions or concerns I might have had which was great.
The only downsides for me was that, as I was living on the top floor, it would get quite hot upstairs during the dog days of summer and the window was broken (scheduled to be fixed after I left). I ended up needing to get an AC, so I did fine.
Accommodations were great; nice big, clean room with a comfy bed, desk, tons of closet space, full length mirrors and modern dressers. Fully stocked kitchen (with dishwasher) and other stainless appliances. In house washer and dryer!
Erica is a great host and does a great job in selecting housemates. She was even considerate enough set aside a good chunk of space in the refrigerator and labeled it with my name.
Transit wise, it is 1/2 a block away from the G line and 3 blocks from the C. Easy access to manhattan.
A supermarket (Pioneer) is a block away with pretty decent produce. Neighborhood is super safe and on wide open, tree-lined streets. Neighborhood cafe is two blocks down.
This is Clinton Hill at its best and definitely should be at the top of your AirBNB list!
*HOST* Erica is great! Accommodates all and any issues promptly, provides alternative solutions, and is even mailing me my forgotten hat back to the West Coast ^-^ She also provided sheets and linens, for me and installed a lock on my door at my request.
*COMMUTE* 30-40 minute commute from times square where I was interning, but feels like 15-20 minutes. Connect the A-G, walk a couple blocks to the C, or take the 38 bus to the Q.
*LOCATION* Convenient access Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and Far Rockaway beaches and wildlife sanctuary!! Plenty of mini marts and small restaurants nearby.
*SAFTEY* I connected A-G subways. G subway stop is at the end of block, two seconds from house, so I could come home at any hour with shopping bags etc, and I always felt safe for the short walk.
Very nice, safe and growing area.
Things to consider:
Each room in on its own floor which is nice, but means a lot of stairs!
House is older/vintage so it is less insulated and a little dusty, however kitchen is very modern and equipped.
Staying outside of Manhattan is a good idea especially for first timers as it forces you to get outside your comfort zone and see more than the big city.
