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.
Laurie was a thoughtful and accommodating host who was able to recommend plenty to see and do around the local neighbourhood.
The apartment was neat and tidy and in a convenient location being within a 5 minute walk to the F, G, and R subway lines.
A great spot from which to explore Park Slope and Brooklyn.
We had such a great stay at laurie's garden apt. The space is so charming and well equipped. We were in town working so it was great to come home to her very comfortable beds. Laurie is an excellent host!
The reservation was canceled 214 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Laurie's place was great. We really loved the super-comfy bed and we appreciated the breakfast pastries, tea, coffee etc. we also appreciated the extras like shampoo and other bathroom supplies.
We found Laurie's apartment to be everything we needed. She left nothing wanting. She was gracious to our child especially. We would recommend or return without a second thought.

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
