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!"
Interaction with Guests
I'm welcoming to guests and helpful! Casual and flexible. Make yourself at home. I prefer visitors who plan to be busy, as my main floor is my office and is private space later at night.

Great stay in Laurie's beautiful home. Laurie gave us great tips on where to eat locally and left us breakfast evey morning. The house is in a quiet neighbourhood but within easy reach of Manhattan. Thank - you Laurie!!
Our stay with Laurie has been great. Nothing is too much trouble for her, from staying up to greet us in the first night we arrived at 2.00am in the morning, having yummy breakfast supplies waiting for us everyday, recommending great cafés and shops, even doing our washing, which was totally unexpected.
The room was lovely, comfortable and clean with everything you need. Overall a wonderful Airbnb experience. Thank you Laurie.
Laurie is a very friendly, gracious host. She checked in with me a few times to make sure everything was acceptable. The neighborhood of Park Slope is great. It has lots of restaurants and shops within short walking distance of Laurie's home. I stayed in a room on the third floor of the house. A winding staircase leads to the room, and the bath is shared with any guest who might rent the other room on the floor (in my case, the other room was only rented out for the last couple of days of my stay). The bedroom and bath were both very clean and pleasant. I did not partake in breakfast, although Laurie made sure that breakfast was available in her kitchen.
Laurie is a very nice host. Always ready to help or make you feel at home. From the croissants served every morning to the laundry she offered to do for her guests.
The house is gorgeous, big and full of light. The backyard is also welcoming.
The room is big with very nice linens, pillows, heating and a great desk to work or use your laptop. (wifi does not work upstairs which is good because you must go to the living room to use it while you interact with other guests or Laurie).
The bathroom is big and clean (you'll only share with the other guest in the next door room).
The two cats are also welcoming and they don't refuse a warm human touch.
The apartment is close to everything that's essential in Park Slope. It is 3-4 blocks away from the G, N, R and F trains. 20 minutes from Manhattan. But... why Manhattan??? You're in Brooklyn!! Enjoy!!!
I would definitely recommend Laurie's Listing.
Laurie was a wonderful and friendly host. She informed me on all the events, restaurant and transportation in the area. The location was perfect with easy access to Manhattan and other parts of Brooklyn. The room was very neat, tidy and clean. Highly reccomended.
Mi esposo y yo pasamos 5 noches en casa de Laurie. Lo más importante al hacer esta reseña es que nos hemos sentido como en nuestra casa, Laurie es una mujer muy cercana que te dará toda la información que solicites. El desayuno es muy completo (café, té, chocolate, tostadas, bollería fresca, queso, zumos, etc) te lo sirves tú con total libertad. La casa tiene 4 habitaciones que estuvieronocupadas durante toda nuestra estancia, todas ellas son espaciosas y con cómodas camas. Laurie te facilita cualquier producto de aseo, como champú, gel, loción hidrantante y secador de pelo que están ahí a tu disposición. En la casa viven dos gatos, suelen estar en la planta de abajo y no molestan.
La casa se encuentra situada en una zona muy tranquila de Brooklyn y con varias líneas de metro a dos calles de distancia que te llevan directas a Manhattan en 20 ó 25 minutos. Muy buena comunicación.
La única pega, por decir algo, es el orden. Al tener tanta gente y Laurie trabajar no siempre está todo ordenado. Aún así durante los días que estuvimos cuando había algún cambio de huéspedes venía una chica de servicio doméstico a limpiar las habitaciones.
Volveríamos sin dudarlo. ¡Muchas gracias por todo, Laurie!
Had an incredible time at lauries place. Clean room and bathroom, confortable bed, great breakfast and last but not least, great company. Laurie recommended great places for us to visit with directions and even some discount groupons. Batman and Robin are friendly and we had them at our door most mornings. If you are not a cat person you will definetly be once you meet them. The only complaint we have is with the wifi signal not reaching the 3rd floor of the house, but know for fact that Laurie is working on getting it fixed.

I will be welcoming and helpful, while respecting your privacy. I know a lot about NY & Brooklyn. 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, adobe acrobat work)
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 is negotiable; Use of computer
