I had a really positive experience living here for 2 months. While I communicated with Deb often via email, we never met in person, but her assistant Damian was very welcoming and was always present when I needed help. The room shares a downstairs bathroom with other airbnb guests (unless the downstairs in being booked privately, in which case you share a bathroom with the upstairs tenants), and everything in the description and images is very accurate-- the A/C works really well!!!! The area is extremely safe, I walked home really late at night by myself on multiple occasions and always felt safe. The B/Q are really close by and they gets you into Manhattan really quickly-- which is really convenient! Prospect Park is also nearby, it's absolutely beautiful and there were always lots of events in the summer. Overall, this home is in a great location and is ideal for people looking to explore NYC for a short/long period of time. Very grateful to have had a positive first Airbnb experience!
Small but comfortable room in a great neighborhood in Brooklyn. Only a couple of blocks to trains, grocery store, and laundromat
I highly recommend this room. Deb is very nice and accommodating. I stayed for a little more than a week and enjoyed my time there. Unfortunately, there was some water damage to the ceiling in the kitchen, so Deb had to gut a remodel the kitchen during my stay. But she was very informative of the repairs and even offered to let me cancel with no charges. I continued to stay for my reserved days, and Deb offered to give me a small refund. Instead I stayed a couple extra days at no charge.
The room is small, but what room in NY isn't? :) I found the room to have everything I needed... bed, closet, AC, full length mirror, & small table. The Wi Fi worked great! The room is just like it looks in the pictures. The neighborhood was safe, beautiful brownstone apartments, and great Caribbean food.
Again, I would highly recommend this room.
Deb's apartment in Brooklyn is situated in a very peaceful and secure neighborhood close to Prospect Park and two subway stations which take you into Manhattan in less than 30 minutes. In the room, which is upstairs, there is a single bed, a small table, a chair and a small closet, which is everything you need if you're not home a lot. The kitchen and the bathroom are downstairs and are shared with another tenant. I only met Deb 3 or 4 times, but she was always helpful and told me about places to go in Brooklyn and Manhattan.
The only thing that was a bit annoying during my 2 month stay was the wireless internet connection, which was either very weak or didn't work at all, especially upstairs. Deb said that a new high-speed internet would be installed soon - I don't know if that has happened yet.
But on the whole, I really enjoyed my stay at Deb's apartment and I can definitely recommend it to others.
The small room that Deb posted is exactly as pictured and described. Simple, comfortable and most importantly for me, warm. It was even nice enough a couple of days to go out to backyard. I could have stayed out there all day if I didn't have a schedule. Deb is available for questions/directions/suggestions and sincerely wants to be helpful host.
Due to tropical storm Sandy needed to find something at the last minute and Deb was more than accomodating. Response time was timely and useful. This place was exactly what I needed; simple and no hassle The house is great; clean, close to all sorts of public transport including 2 subway stations, grocery, drug stores, laundry. As a first airbnb experience, this really sets the standards for the rest.
Would recommend to others and not hesitate to visit again.
