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!"
My daughter and I enjoyed very much staying with Laurie, she was very helpful, lots of information on what to see, transport and mad us feel very welcome in her home
We stayed at Laurie's place for five nights. It was our first airbnb experience & really a good choice. We spent most of our time in Manhattan but had the opportunity to explore Brooklyn during the last day thanks to Laurie's suggestions. Laurie is a great host and the place is exactly the same as in the picture. Rent her place, listen to her suggestions and enjoy NYC.
Although we haven't extensively used airbnb in the past, we have to admit that this was a surprisingly great experience for us.
We arrived at Laurie's around 11.30pm and not only she wasn't bothered by the late time, she also spent the next hour and a half to explain and discuss with us all the things we could do in NY.
Her information was spot on and we never regretting following her recommendations. She has a great taste for theatrical plays and is very well informed with what is going on in the town.
The place itself is located in a lovely and safe street only 3 blocks from the subway station that can take you to Manhattan in no more than 20-25 minutes. Art is overflowing in the place and Laurie is happy to explain where everything comes from.
Having an uncle who has been an F1 champion as well as an autograph from Roger Federer is always a bonus!!!
Batman and Robin (her two cats) are very well behaved and add to the great experience.
Rooms (both bedrooms and common rooms) and bathrooms were very clean and tidy.
To sum up, Laurie and her lovely place contributed in having a lovely time in NY and also saved some money during the trip.
If we ever go back to NY we wouldn't look for another place to stay !!
We had a great time at Lauries beautiful Park Slope house with wonderful garden, packed with squirrels. We loved the atmosphere of both house, street and neighbourhood and thus learned a lot more about New York then the usual Manhattan, really a great experience.
Laurie was a perfect and thoughtfull host from the moment of reservation, providing lots of useful information and tips for worthwhile addresses and restaurants. Perfect was also the travel info which made us travel quickly from Park Slope to lots of interesting places in Dumbo, Williamsburg (market/shops), Meatpacking (High Line) and Harlem, and don't forget Brooklyn Museum!
Furthermore Laurie made us really feel at home with daily a perfect breakfast. We surely will be back, thanks for a lovely stay Laurie. Harm and Petra.
This was my second stay at Laurie's in one of the third floor bedrooms. The bedroom overlooked her beautiful back garden, was spacious, comfortable, and quiet. My daughter lives five blocks away, so Laurie's is very convenient for me. I felt safe walking "home" to Laurie's in the evenings. I liked being able to enjoy coffee and breakfast each morning. Laurie always asks what kind of breakfast foods you like, and they "magically" show up on the table ready for you to partake of. Laurie and her son are friendly, helpful, and so accommodating. Her rates are very reasonable too! There is a well-stocked 24 hr. grocery store a half block away, and other types of stores, restaurants etc. a short distance away. I look forward to my next visit to Brooklyn and a stay at Laurie's.
Park Slope is an amazing neighborhood to stay in, so much so that I moved here with my family from Ireland. We stayed with Laurie for a couple of weeks while we looked for a long term apartment and would highly recommend staying in the large bedroom which we lodged in for the last few nights of our stay with Laurie (in addition to the stay we had in the basement apartment).
There is plenty of space in the room which means you can store pltny of luggage and still have space to move around. There is also a bathroom on each floor so there was never any queues to get in! Laurie provides a selection of great local foods for breakfast and guests have access to the backyard which was great for my young son as was the washer and dryer for laundry.
Laurie provided a wealth of helpful advice, was very easy going, friendly, welcoming and very accommodating and flexible to suit her guests which made a real difference to our stay. Laurie’s two cats are also very friendly and love meeting new people.
I would highly recommended booking a stay with Laurie if you would like to visit the area.
Laurie's place was perfect for my stay - I was visiting my young daughter who lives in Park Slope, and Laurie's house is at the dead centre of the neighbourhood, well placed for the subway and slightly south of the rather uber-trendy Slope further North.
We had, when at home, the run of the thru lounge and garden. Other people staying were great company. Well stocked fridge etc. Cats good company too...
Laurie very welcoming and easygoing and treated the three loud toddlers wandering her lounge with care and kindness.
Not ideal if you want to be alone, and unless you are in the basement flat you are sharing a bathroom, but these are minor issues and the place is great value.
Laurie is much more than a host, but a dedicated friend who makes almost everything for the guests to feel welcome. She gave us many nice tips about places to go (the Mermaid Parade, for example, that was unforgettable!). The house is located in a safe neighborhood, (lots of trees and birds), five minutes by walking to subway. I recommend her home for everyone who wants more than just a place to sleep while visiting New York city, but a house full of art, who offers a real experience of life.
Laurie was an excellent host. She knows really nice spots in Brooklyn and Manhattan. She was very helpful when we needed information about the city.
Her place is beautiful, near the metro and near from really cool restaurants and bars. Beds were very confortable!
And breakfast was delicious!
Laurie's home is charming and she is an excellent host. The apartment is located near the subway and walkable to many nice restaurants in Park Slope.
