Had a wonderful time here and enjoyed staying with this beautiful family. The kids are absolutely gorgeous and the eldest is always up for a chat about your day. The location is great and very safe to walk home from the subway at night as it's a busy and well lit area. Katja was really helpful when I enquired about which train to take or where to go etc. The room is just like the pictures. It was spacious, warm and clean, what more could you ask for?
Would definitely recommend staying here and would happily revisit next time I am in Brooklyn.
Katja was a fantastic host. Her family are lovely and they made me feel very welcome. Katja also gives fantastic food recommendations in the surrounding area and is very helpful generally when it comes to pointing people towards things. If I return to NYC any time soon I'll definitely look to staying here again.
Thanks Katja and family!
Very nice folks, cute kids, and two very friendly cats. What more could you ask?
A nice place to stay! Friendly hosts who are helping when you need it. The place is close to downtown Brooklyn and the Q and B trains are bringing you to Manhattan.
Katja and Jermaine are very friendly hosts, I enjoyed my stay and recomand it to everyone else staying for some time in New York!
Our experience was very good : clean room, comfortable bed and a good location, close to a subway station. We slept very well! Katja and Jermaine were nice and flexible. It was a good choice!
I spent a great time in New York City, thanks to Katja's family.
We didn't have time to talk a lot because i was out but she gave me some good tips.
From to appartment you are in Manathan in less 30 minutes on metro. Room was clean, no worries.
Katja and his husband welcomed us very well during our stay.They answered all our questions and gave us good advice.
We had a lovely stay at Katja and Jermaine's place! We didn't see them much as we were pretty busy enjoying the city, but they were very accommodating and the room was clean and air conditioned. I didn't see a whole lot of restaurants in the neighborhood, but there's a nearby park and the train is very convenient.
We started communication with Katja and Jermaine about 4 months earlier and they were very quick to answer any questions or concerns we had. When we arrived for our 3 day stay, Jermaine was waiting for us and let us know that we could check in early which was a bonus after all of our traveling. Jermaine was quick to offer tips about where to eat in the area and there was a map of the subway in the bedroom. The neighborhood is close to the B Q 2 5 lines, and it is BROOKLYN but as long as you look confident and just get on your way there is nothing to worry about. Excellent place to stay for your first time in the City. The only downside is that the mattress is really thin, so you can feel the box spring and after a day of traveling, it was a bit of a letdown to have to constantly toss and turn because the bed is not comfortable. Otherwise, we like being close to everything and it was a great neighborhood for exploring.
