REVIEW: "We can tell you only good words about the experience. The house is nice and charming, neighborhood is great, connections to Manhattan very good and reliable. But what made our stay most unforgettable was the owner and her lovely son. They really made everything to let us feel at home, they were so careful and helpful on everything. It's not too much if we say that she did way more than she was supposed to do. We won't never forget them and we would definitely recommend such experience to anybody. Then we returned 2 more times and they visit us in Rome!"

This is a great location close to lots of restaurants and stores, but also in a safe, residential neighborhood. Very clean.

Laurie's place is really great! Close to subway (R and F ) so there's easy access into the city. It's on a quiet area in Park Slope but still close to everything the area has to offer in terms of restaurants and bars. The room is a good size and has everything anyone could need. Fair amount of closet space. Beautiful garden.

We had a wonderful stay at Laurie's place, while visiting with our daughter who lives in Park Slope. Sharing the bathroom was not a problem, as we found all guests using it were mindful and courteous. We appreciated all the extra amenities that Laurie provides: a good reading light on both sides of the bed, lots of room and shelves in the closet, a first aid kit in the bathroom, shampoo, conditioner, fresh and delicious croissants, bagels, cream cheese, organic milk and OJ for breakfast. . . all yummy and plentiful. The backyard garden was at its prime and lovely. What a gem we found. Thank you, Laurie, and we hope to see you again!

Laurie was a great host. She knows so much about the neighborhood that it was super easy for us to navigate around the house. She provides an amazing breakfast each morning. Never imagined I could get complimentary breakfast at an Airbnb house. I had some good and bad Airbnb experiences but Laurie's house was so so great. I would stay there again and recommend it to anyone!

Laurie was a gracious and friendly host! I stayed for 5 nights at her home, and it was comfortable and inviting. Park Slope is also a great neighborhood with plenty of places to go and shops and restaurants. I would stay again if I needed to!

Laurie User ProfileLaurie is a superhost.

I will be welcoming and helpful, while respecting your privacy. I know a lot about NY & Brooklyn and love my neighborhood. 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, computer )
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 and printer is negotiable.
