  • I thoroughly enjoyed my 5 nights at Helen's apartment in Brooklyn's Windsor Terrace neighborhood. The street was delightful, with a Children's carnival one Saturday afternoon and a regular Farmer's Market on Sundays. It's location very close to the subway was helpful, as well as the local stores and restaurants. The apartment was clean and spacious with all the amenities I needed and a particularly nice kitchen as well as spacious closet and bathroom. The bedroom was in the back of the unit, and thus very quiet. Best of all was the proximity to my son and his family, just minutes away and a very pleasant walk. I look forward to a return visit!

  • Great place; just as described. Helen is delightful. Didn't interact too much as I'm quite familiar with the area and have family just around the corner. Great location and would recommend!

  • Helena is great. The place is clean, quiet, comfortable. Close to everything you need and in a very friendly neighborhood. Try Savor Brooklyn for breakfast or brunch. It's a little place on Windsor Terrace just around the corner form Helena's. The park is an easy walk and it's gorgeous. Subway is close too. It was all great.

  • I live in Windsor Terrace, and my father stayed in her apartment on a recent visit. She was very accommodating and made sure my dad was able to get in when he arrived and stayed comfortable during his stay.

  • Helen is a very sweet person. She was very careful with us. Her apartment is a super nice place, clean and spacious, we felt very comfortable there. I highly recommend her place!

  • Helen's apartment is cozy, yet spacious, and very clean! My in-laws stayed here while they were visiting and were very comfortable and pleased with their accommodations. Helen is friendly and makes herself available to help if needed. I definitely recommend booking with Helen!

  • Helen was a great host and the apartment was just what we were looking for during our stay in NYC, clean, cozy and convenient! We will definitely stay with Helen the next time we visit!!

  • Helen is very easy to deal with, whether it be by email, Airbnb, or phone. Her apartment is very comfortable, clean, tidy, and well equipped for guests. Conveniently located, it is within a few minutes walk of the excellent subway system, and also Prospect Park.

    Helen willingly provides information on local services (and recommended the best airport car service we used on the USA leg of our trip), giving us the significant benefit of local knowledge.

    We are sure Helen and her apartment contributed significantly to the fantastic time we had in NY.

    Whilst we would not claim to be vastly experienced in pricing of NY holiday accommodation, we felt that Helen's apartment represents excellent value for money.

    To demonstrate just how far Helen will go for her guests, she organised a big snow dump during our stay - a wonderful experience for a couple from the hotter climate Down Under.

  • We stayed 4 weeks at this place and were happy with it. The neighborhood is very pleasant, the next subway station is near, and many nice places and shops in Park Slope are in walking distance.
    We found the apartment as described with a large living room and a good bedroom, all very clean. As it is a basement apartment there is not much daylight though. Internet access worked promptly, but there was a problem with the tv cable setup which should be fixed by now. Helen was a very friendly host, always reacting promptly to our text messages and striving to make our stay really satisfying. She even brought additional kitchen implements and made it possible for us to have friends over for dinner. We therefore felt very much at home.

  • Just a wonderful apartment. Clean, lots of amenities, and a fantastic location. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay, and will book on the next trip to Brooklyn. Thanks

After years of traveling the globe, I now open my home to others. I have rented rooms and apartments while in foreign cities, and it is a great way to feel at home while traveling abroad. I am warm, kind, smart, sassy, educated, ambitious, tough, compassionate Very no nonsense. I work hard to respect others, and in return expect the same. I am very generous and caring and happy to share all I know of the great city and borough I live in.
