Interaction with Guests
My interaction varies since I am freelance hairstylist. It will depend on my week how much I will be home or how much I will be out working. My boyfriend also lives with me and will help out with the hosting duties when I am not around. He speaks fluent Spanish and can help translate for my foreign guest.

A very good experience in Monet home, Monet and his boyfirend are very kind.
Monet and Glenn were great! Very friendly and hospitable to me and my dog. The room was super cute and Ft. Greene is a gem. I highly recommend staying here!
Good clean room, good location. A bit small and maybe not ideal for couples but great room in a good location.
Monet very nice and helpful.
Monet and her boyfriend were both very nice and welcoming. The bedroom was very clean and comfortable and the neighborhood had a lot of good restaurants and shops that were walking distance. It was a very pleasant experience.
This is a great location to visit Manhattan. Brooklyn Bridge, subways are 15 minutes walk. Bear in mind that big suitcases can cause difficulties in the subway, so be prepared :)
Monet is very nice, quite flexible with the check in and out if you have late night flights. All the info was provided to me in time, how to get into the apartment. The building is next to an expressway so the New York traffic sounds are there in 24 hours :)
I have spent 3 great days there.
They were very nice and the place is really as in pictures, spacious and clean. Would stay again. My stay was short but i was very confortable. Also it was my first airbnb booking.
Tout c'est très bien passé, nous avons était bien accueilli. Le soir de notre arrivée Monet nous a même offert une pizza :-)

About the Host, Monet
I am a freelance hairstylist based in New York. I am originally from CA and have lived in the area of Fort Greene for the past 5 years. I love this diverse quaint neighborhood. Feel free to ask questions on places to go or things to do. I love exploring the city and can give lots of tips. My boyfriend recently moved in and will also be sharing the apartment with us, but most of your interaction will be with me as I manage the airbnb guest.
