Not a heck of a lot of rules. Pretty much you break it you bought it. Please be kind to the record collection. Been collecting since childhood. Have as much fun as you like but leave the place the way you found it. What you do in the privacy of my home is up to you. If it's funky that's your business, just please don't leave it for me to clean up.
Kari's apartment is wonderful! I loved listening to her records, and she has an inspiring book collection as well. Kari was communicative and warm, and the location was great. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her place to anyone!
This place was GREAT! It was perfect for our long weekend. Kari was really nice and very available if we needed anything. The location couldnt have been more perfect. Close to a subway station and right around the corner from a bunch of shops, delis, and restaurants.
Kari's apartment is beautiful, and really well located. There is a subway stop right round the corner and the best donut spot in NYC is just across the street from said subway. Perfect.
Kari was really helpful during our stay. We had a couple of hiccups getting into the apartment on our first day but Kari was on top of it the whole time. She's awesome.
We stayed at Kari's apartment for Black Friday weekend and it was everything we hoped it would be. Clean, cozy, great location right near the L train, extremely comfortable bed, clean linens and towels, awesome record collection and more. From the minute we stepped in, it felt like the apartment was our own.
It's the perfect Brooklyn pad and Kari was an awesome host. Whenever we needed something, she responded right back to us and made sure everything was ok. Highly recommended place to stay!
We stayed in Whimsy Williamsburg for a beautiful November weekend in Brooklyn. Kari's apartment was unbelievably cozy, clean, and we felt right at home. The record collection alone is reason to stay in her apartment, and we spent every morning rocking out to Lou Reed and Velvet Underground - needless to stay we really loved it. Thanks so much for amazing stay Kari!
Our experience in Kari's Williamsburg apartment was fantastic. The apartment was clean, well-equipped and in perfect working order. We slept soundly in the really-quite-comfortable bed. The apartment was well-located a couple blocks from the subway, had many shops and restaurants virtually on her doorstep, and was within walking distance to all that Williamsburg has to offer. Due to the building being a typical NY pre-war structure, the bathroom was a little tight, but totally functional and part of an authentic New York experience. While we never met Kari, she was welcoming and proactive in ensuring that we had everything we needed. We appreciated her flexibility with our check-in and check-out arrangements. Finally, I would note that she has an outstanding record collection and collection of books on music. If for some bizarre reason New York and Brooklyn leaves you bored, there is plenty to captivate you in her book collection.
We stayed at Kari's apartment for two weeks in June. Her place is absolutely beautiful and cosy. Everything was perfect: clean sheets and towels, very comfortable bed, amazing record collection, beautiful decor, all clean and tidy. The neighborhood is nice and safe. The apartment is two blocks away from the subway which makes it ideal. It's only 15 minutes away from Manhattan.
Kari was very nice and helpful, we strongly recommend her to anyone who wants to stay in a quite neighborhood and have an amazing stay in NYC!
I have been an artist manager for over 10 years now, working for international bands and therefore travel often. I use Airbnb almost exclusively and I rent out my own place on Airbnb when I leave NYC myself. So I am super respectful and know what it entails to be a great Airbnb host and guest. When traveling for work, I am usually out from morning and often into the night. I really just need a nice comfy space to sleep, shower, and chill when the day is done. That's also what my pad is best for.
I collect vinyl, have a full wall of it. I spin records occasionally for fun and do lots an lots of yoga.
