Diana's place was clean, cozy and spacious for the three of us, the bed-sofa comfortable. Everything is as in the pictures and more. Diana has an amazing library of an international working and travelling woman. What I really adored about the location is being able to hop on the ferry over to Manhatten and/or hang out in Brooklyn to discover all the cool bars, restaurants, shops and galleries. Loved the weekend fleamarket! Thank you for sharing your place.
it's an awesome place. wish I could have stayed longer - or just live there. 1 block from the Driggs exit of the Bedford L station, hipster ground zero, but totally peaceful and quiet.
Dianna was an excellent communicator, clear and regular making everything so easy.
The apartment is warm, comfortable and charming. It is near the tube, great coffee shops, a cinema and a neighbourhood that has charm and feels safe.
I stayed with my 8 year old and a friend from london. We all loved it and had an amazing time.
Amazing experience. Diana was extremely helpful in many ways, and always was prompt to write me back to any questions I had. The apartment is amazing. Location is the best part, right near two subways that we frequently used. The apartment is modern and was able to accommodate the 5 of us comfortably!
We had a great first airbnb experience in Diana’s loft. The location is fantastic – a quiet spot in the middle of the coolest part of Brooklyn. We had a fabulous Christmas brunch at Station, just a block away. The subway is also about a block away, and it is easy to be in Manhattan in minutes.
We loved the spaciousness of the loft. One of us could sleep in while the other made coffee. The kitchen is large and easy to cook in, and we used it for numerous meals. The dining area is generous as well. We were able to set up a laptop on the desk in the living room and have holiday music piped through Diana’s speakers while we celebrated with family.
Diana, though out of the country, was very responsive and extremely detailed in her communication, even when we had a question after our arrival. Even though we arrived a bit later than expected, the key handoff from her housekeeper was also seamless.
A word to other new airbnb-ers: We come to Brooklyn regularly to visit family, and we often stay at the Wythe Hotel. Diana’s loft was much more spacious and cost effective and even more centrally located, though somewhat less luxurious and pristine.
Thank you Diana!
Diana's Williamsburg loft was cool, clean and spacious. Top location with easy subway access and amazing restaurants, bars and cafes just around the corner on Bedford and Driggs. We would gladly return!
Diana's place is a gem and she is a delight to deal with. Just fantastic.
This apartment has an awesome location — blocks from the subway and the heart of Williamsburg. It's spacious, clean, and provided a warm foil to the blustery weather during our stay.
The fold out bed and master bed were very comfortable, the shower was hot and the towels were plush. Hotel-like comfort on those fronts.
Diana was communicative and extremely accommodating. We hosted a huge holiday dinner in the apartment and it was a breeze: She had a fully outfitted kitchen with bakeware, serving platters, spices. She even taught us how to use the building's service elevator to accommodate two dinner guests who use wheelchairs.
We had the most amazing time. Diana was a great host and made us feel really welcome when we arrived. The apartment is beautiful and Diana has the most wonderful book collection! The location was perfect for us because we wanted to stay somewhere away from manhattan but close enough to visit when we wanted. The subway is 5 mins away and it took no more than 10 mins to get to Manhattan. We're hoping to return in spring and seriously can't thank Diana enough, it was like staying at a friend's place while she was out of town.
This place is on a quiet street yet RIGHT in the heart of one of our favorite neighborhoods. Comfy, cozy and cool, this place is just what you want in Brooklyn.
Also, it's close to the milk bar!
It was so easy to check in/out, so much so that it felt like crashing at a friends place!
