"Elle was wholeheartedly the loveliest host imaginable....not only is she genuinely kind and helpful but also provides an immaculate and affordable apartment in a gorgeous house in the heart of Brooklyn. What we both loved about the place is that it is at once and the same time elegant, contemporary and simple....and Elle goes out of her way to give sound advice about the surrounding city!"

Elle was a great host. By the time I arrived, she was already waiting for me. The room was very spacious and clean, just as described. The bathroom was also very clean and just down the hall. The neighborhood was gorgeous and I had no problems finding parking. I only stayed one night and did not get to interact too much with Elle, but the little I did she was very professional and amicable.Overall I am very satisfied. I will be coming back here if I find myself again in the area.
The reservation was canceled 7 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This is my second time to stay with Liz at her beautiful home. My 2 daughters and I were there for a long weekend. We shared the bed and Liz provided an air mattress. It was a very welcoming retreat after a day of crowds and congestion. If you are looking for a true "local" experience vs. tourist experience, then stay here and just go for the adventure. All of my future plans in NYC will include Liz's bnb. Thank you Liz again for being a wonderful and knowledgeable host!
It was really nice staying at Liz place. The bed is very comfortable and the room had enough space for all our stuff. Liz was very helpfull and gave us some good tipps to find interesting places in Manhattan and in the Brooklyn area. The subway is not far away so it was very easy to found our way around.
Best Location to explore Brooklyn.Liz was very helpful and kind,the room was clean & cozy with a nice garden view.I would recommend Liz House to everyone ! Restaurants and everything is just a step away ...Thank you,Liz !! Anne

Room was nice and cozy. Elizabeth was very accommodating, as I was on crutches. She offered to get my carry-out, books, etc, since it was raining out. Very friendly. Great home, great neighborhood.
