This was my first ever Airbnb experience. I rented the place for a month and had a very pleasant stay. Christina was very helpful. I arrived around midnight and she waited up to greet me. The room was very spacious and has a big closet and a very comfy bed. If you like dogs, you'll love staying here. Bagel (the dog) is adorable and super friendly and we became super good friends. Not a lot of options when it comes to eating out, but there are several grocery stores and delis nearby. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the spices and herbs you'll need to prepare food (I often do to save money). The Q train will take you to downtown manhattan in about 30mins (Unfortunately for me, the station was under construction during my stay and I had to take a 15min detour).
If you are looking for a reasonable place to stay, look no further. There are two mainstays who are fun and young :) Everyone else is on the move just like you. So it is a great atmosphere to meet new people. And they eat very healthy. Nice way to keep yourself on track too :) There is a quirky doggie too. He likes his attention. I would come back!
My stay with Christina was simply awesome. If you don't mind the distance this is the place to live. She is an amazing cook, open-minded, free-spirited and friendly. She will always point you in the right direction. The house has a great vibe and guests are always cool and easygoing. I stayed 2 months here and loved it! I would've stayed longer if my work wasn't so far from her house, but definitely a great place. If you want to hang out there is always someone around, but if you want some privacy you can totally have some alone time. The house is respectful, quiet, and at the same time warm and great for long talks. I strongly recommend this place.
Christina and Tyler are great host!
After a warm welcome, i enjoyed a funny, laid back, helpfull and
super friendly atmosphere. I immediately felt at home.
I can only recommend the artist's house!
I feel so lucky I got to experience New York City living a whole month at Christina's and Tyler's.
There are both extremely lovely, helpful and did everything in their power for us to feel welcome and confortable in their home.
The house was always clean and heated,the bedroom confortable,the bathroom was neat too plus we had towels and slippers upon arrivals:)
I can definitely recommend people to go stay there and enjoy this whole experience as much as we did!
I hope to stay there again in the future on my next travel to New York City.
Christina and Tyler have been amazing hosts. Not only is this a great house, location and price, the hosts are so welcoming and great fun. I stayed here for nearly 3 months, and will certainly visit next time I am back.
I spent six great weeks in this house. I felt like home, I thank Christina and Tyler for that, they are two very nice people and I enjoyed sharing my time with them.
About the house my room was comfortable and quiet. There is a big kitchen, two bathrooms, a great living room and also a rooftop access (with a table, chairs, a little garden and a hammock)! Grocery stores, train stations, park...everything is close from the house.
So if you choose this house you will not regret it!
I was there just for four weeks. At the beginning the taxi driver who took me to the house from the airport scared me about the area, but now I know I want to live there forever. Is a beatiful place, and I don't have words to tell you about how nice could be the company of Christina, Tyler and Lucy. I met there the most sweet people from all over the world, Mirka, Kristin and Christina.
Christina and her roommates Lucy and Tylor were great - and their apartment in Brooklyn as well!
I really enjoyed talking with them, and they invited me to shows and other things - unfortunately I had to work much and was a bit tired at the end of my travel that I wasn't able to do much more than walking through New York the whole day. But, Christina showed me the area and we went out one night - I had much fun with her, drinking, dancing and talking about art and life.
Their apartment is big, very cozy and the roof terrace is awesome in spring. The house is situated in a calmer part of Brooklyn, and a good area to feel immediately like home. It is close to two underground stations, so I got fast to Manhatten and Northern Brooklyn, I felt secure every time and there are many good and cheap restaurants around as well as supermarkets.
Thank you for my great stay at your place -I hope to come back some day!
What a awesome experience! I loved the Artist's house, a real one! Christina, Tyler and Julie are beautiful and creative souls and i matched with them immediately. Beautiful house with a lot of books, only 20 minutes away from Manhattan with the famous Q Train.
I'll be back soon!
