Ein toller Aufenthalt, wir empfehlen das Appartement gerne weiter.
We hebben een fijne tijd gehad bij Laurie. Goede locatie en de tuin is heerlijk. Leuke buurt. Fred,Caroline,Bing en Jan.
Petit appartement bien agencé et ne manquant de rien.
Beau jardin fleuri .
Situé dans un rue calme de Brooklyn, à 20 mn de métro du centre de Manhattan.
Laurie est une hôte charmante et discrète.
Elle a à coeur de nous satisfaire, nous rempli le frigidaire de produits pour le petit déjeuner.
Le + : horaires flexibles ++ et nous a permis de laisser nos valises le jours de notre départ
Ancora un grazie du cuore a Laurie per la sua accoglienza!
Casa perfetta, soprattutto per una famiglia. Molto pulita, ben situata con la metro a due passi, quartiere tranquillo con tutte le comodità a portata di mano
Laurie was very kind and excellent in accommodation us. They place was great and the neighborhood was excellent. Laurie provided us with many berries and fruits. It was very nice of her to treat her guests very special.
La zona es un lugar seguro, agradable y armonioso con todos los vecinos.
Es tranquilo y silencioso, muy iluminado y bien comunicado ya que está entre dos grandes calles de la zona de Brooklyn que tienen Restaurantes, zonas comerciales y una estación de metro muy cercana.
La anfitriona es una persona muy agradable que desde que nos recibió generó mucha confianza en nosotros para las sugerencias que necesitabamos para recorrer la ciudad.
Algo que nos gustó mucho es que solamente interactuaba con nosotros a solicitud nuestra, por lo que nosotros la recomendamos ampliamante ya que ofrece unas instalaciones muy limpias, cálidas y amplias.
The apartment is stylish and cozy, and the fact that the house is quite old and renovation was not done recently does not undermine the coziness. There is just one bath, and the second bedroom is not really isolated from kitchen and the bath, but for those who travel with kids it may be a real 2 bedroom solution. Laurie is very welcoming and helpful, always goes an extra mile and helps a lot not only with the apartment, but with all aspects of life at and around the place - taxi, dining, etc. The location is not the best part of Park Slope, though close to subway, restaurants and grosseries. Overall we had a very good time there.

About the Host, Laurie
I will be welcoming and helpful, while respecting your privacy. I know a lot about NY & Brooklyn. I'm especially interested in arts and music, and welcome artists ... and chefs and gardeners ! I'm also interested in occasional work exchange deals (now, for sewing, gardening, handy-person, adobe acrobat work)
I speak and understand several languages. I work at home a lot, on my main floor, and do prefer guests who are busy themselves, and casual, low-key, trusting and flexible people.
It's an old house with quirks, (not a hotel!) in a fantastic and quiet location.
Included: Laundry, excellent coffee & breakfast foods, nice linens, big garden & BBQ, fans, air conditioner, fabulous cats.
Some use of kitchen is negotiable; Use of computer
