Interaction with Guests
We are a family with a young child and will be present during the guests stay. We will be on hand and are extremely down to earth so feel free to ask us any questions.
Come experience Brooklyn's hidden gem. Off the beaten track but extremely accessible, Ocean Hill lies on the eastern tip of Bedstuy and is a stones throw away from Bushwick, Williamsburg, Fort Greene and Barclays Center. Easy access to the main Brooklyn attractions; Brooklyn Museum, Prospect Park and Botanical Gardens to name a few.
A short walk (3 mins) to Broadway Junction, a major subway hub. You can connect directly to Manhattan, Queens and Downtown Brooklyn on the A, C, L, J and Z lines. If you are feeling like a day at Rockaway beach, its 25 minutes by car or a hop on the A train. Taking a trip to the Hamptons is a summer breeze with the LIRR only 3 blocks away with frequent train connections at Jamaica, also the airport connection.
Other Things to Note
We are a kid friendly household and welcome families with kids of all ages.
No smoking in the apartment or house but you are welcome to smoke outside on the stoop. No pets
Louisa's place was exactly what we're looking for a bit hot but it was 80 outside so we understood and 2 fans were there to make it less uncomfortable ..We did our journey in New York easily because of the location of the appartment.The nearest metro station was about 5 min with 4 lines which stop there we couldnt except more. The supermarket was also about 3 min. We earned a lot of time!!! Our host was helpful it was easy to communicate with and she was always available to make our trip a real success. Thank you
Tutto sommato ci siamo trovati bene.. anche se l'appartamento ha evidenti carenze. Comincerei con le note positive. L'appartamento è situato in una zona abbastanza tranquilla. La fermata metropolitana è vicina e permette di raggiungere facilmente il cuore di manhattan. Note da migliorare: pulizia approssimativa (vedi tenda del bagno, lenzuola macchiate). Gli essenziali erano molto ridotti, un solo asciugamano a testa da doccia per 5 giorni, mancava la Carta igienica.
I am sorry that the accommodation was not to your liking, I try to make all our guests feel comfortable when staying with us and most if not all are very happy in the apartment. I appreciate you taking time to give your honest feedback but I think most of the issues you raised could have been rectified with a simple conversation. I live downstairs so am available most times. You could have asked about towels, linens, toilet paper and essentials and I would have happily helped you. There is also a linen closet in the bedroom full of clean sheets and towels that you could have checked if the ones put out for you were not to your liking.
Thank you for the info about the shower curtain, I will be sure to take a look at that.
Just a heads up for you if you do use airbnb again; you are in someones home and not a hotel. If issues arise, a simple conversation with your host might serve you better and make your stay more comfortable rather then waiting until you leave and making a complaint then.
We had a great time, the apartment was lovely, brilliant location 3 min walk to subway! There was no air con in the kitchen/living area an was quiet hot in the summer! But the air con in the room was perfect! Slept brilliantly!! Was lovely an clean, we had all the facilities we needed! Would def recommend this apartment!! We'll definitely be back! Thanks Louisa.
Luisa fue una gran anfitriona. Su apartamento es caluroso y agradable. Cercano al metro y fácil de llegar Totalmente recomendable. Gracias!
Louisa make check in and out very simple . It s good stay for us . And the house is close to the subway .
The apartment is really close to JFK which is one of the reasons I chose it in the first place. Louisa was always super quick at getting back to me and getting the key was no stress at all as it was waiting for us on arrival.
The apartment itself is lovely and clean and well laid out with a comfortable bed.
The transport links in the area are also a huge bonus as its easy to get to Williamsburg, Manhattan and even Queens from subways a short walk away.
Everything was super easy and convenient. Location is 3 min walking distance from the train. Communication was quick and no hassle. We didn't spend too much time inside, but the time we did felt like we were at home.
