Erin was easy to communicate with before check-in, and was flexible in setting up a time to meet me at the apartment. She made me feel very welcome, giving me a tour of the apartment and talking with me about local bars, cafes, and restaurants.
The room itself is really pleasant: private, quiet, with its own entrance and bathroom, and a window letting in natural light. It is conveniently located a stone's throw from the Subway (literally about fifty yards or less).
I stayed in Erin's place while I looked for a summer apartment; it was so nice, I wish I had booked it in time to stay the whole summer!
Erin made me feel welcome right away! He place is a short walk to the subway, and the area is really nice, it made me feel safe. This was my first time using this site, and after my experience I will definitely be using it again. Erin's home is really lovely, and I felt comfortable there. Negative points: Room was in the basement so it was really cold! There were plenty of blankets to use though so I stayed warm at night. As you can see in the photo there is a spiral stair case leading to the basement, meaning the room isn't completely closed in. Erin tried to be really quiet but I still woke up from noise in the morning. If you're a light sleeper this may be something you want to know. Also, the bed was a little uncomfortable, it felt like there was a hard bored right down the middle of it. If you're a small person you might feel other wise. There were plenty of pillows, a t.v., and a separate entrance to the basement though!
I stayed at Erin's to finish up my last semester of law school. It was close to the subway and easy to commute to school. Pretty great.
I stayed at Erin's house for 2 months. The position was perfect, because it was in front of subway. There are B and Q trains and it takes less than 30 minutes to get to Manhattan. I liked the neighborhood, there are many groceries and delis and bars, and it is a safe place. The room is in a basement with a private bathroom and the laundry is just in the next door. Upstair there is a big kitchen and living room shared with Erin. She is a very kind woman, she helps you with everything you need and she is perfect to recommend you the best coffee bars, restaurants or attractions to visit. If you want to discover the best of NYC, you need the recommendations of a real new yorker as Erin!!!
Erin is super sweet and an amazing host.
The room is exactly what is in the photos, it's in the basement, but has a window and a nice breeze.
I really enjoyed my stay at Erin's place. The bedroom is a large, quiet basement room (with a window and it's own bathroom) in a large apartment, near beautiful Prospect Park lake and right next to the most convenient subway line. Erin is knowing, helpful and easygoing and out at work most or the time, so there's privacy.
I stayed at Erins place for a month. She is a great host: helpful, knowing, funny. I would recommend staying with her to anyone.
