Welcome to Park Slope! Close walking distances to so many wonderful places like Prospect Park, Greenwood Cemetary, lovely local bars(including a great new beergarden with outdoor bocce and indoor fireplaces), restaurants, boutiques, cafes! Very close to the new Barclays Center where you can see great concerts and games!
The apartment is a 2 bedroom, one of which will be yours. The space is bright with lots of windows, a fully equipped kitchen which you are welcome to use. Cable TV in the common space and internet of course.
Your room has a full sized bed and I will provide you with clean sheets and towels. The bathroom is shared.
If you are renting a car, parking is rarely an issue. However, you don't need to because it's about a 5 min walk to the F,G,R trains and can be in the city or williamsburg in 15-20 min. I think there's enough to do around here that you won't need to go very far!
I grew up in Brooklyn and have a lot of great insight on places to go, where to eat, how to get there, can't miss places and under the radar hidden gem types throughout NYC! And as my guest I would love to share this information with you!
I'm not home very often, but when I am I enjoy cooking or watching a good movie. My boyfriend lives here as well, but he is traveling quite often. We have a Jack Russell that splits her time between my house and my mothers depending on my schedule. So if you're not much a fan of dogs, let me know so I can arrange for her to stay with mom(she is quite cute tho).
Looking forward to meeting you!
We had a film playing in a film festival in Brooklyn and we needed a place close by. I checked all the hotels around the area and found them to be way out of my price range. I went on airbnb and found Justyna's place fit perfectly. It was only a couple blocks a way to the screening. We really only needed a place to sleep and tried to be out as much as possible although we did come back during mid day and (email hidden). Location is close to the subway and there a tons of places to go to eat and shop. Its quite convenient. The place is spacious and our room had a comfortable bed and a big closet. Also, Justyna was a great host and gave us information on where to go for food and thrift stores. We did an early check in which was great because we both came in on red eye flights. I was really grateful she allowed us to check in earlier than any hotel. Her dog Seya (sp?) pronounced like "See Ya" was the most lovable dog ever. She sat on my lap while we watched TV. The shower and sink's water gets hot really fast so be careful and the place is relatively quiet during the night. My experience was really positive. I do recommend making sure that you do stuff during the day because Justyna works at night so she is sleeping during the day.
Todo ha ido perfecto, tanto la habitación como el piso (salón, baño y cocina compartida con Justyna) son ideales para estar de viaje. Todo el piso es muy acojedor y Justyna casi no está en todo el día por lo que uno puede estar comodamente por todo el piso. Ella ha sido una gran anfitriona, siempre que nos cruzamos me ha preguntado como iba todo y si necesitaba alguna cosa o indicación sobre la ciudad.
We stayed two weeks. The house is a perfect base to explore the city, close to F and R trains to manhattan, and G to williamsbourg. There are very good market, bar and nice shops in the neighborhood. The apartment is as pictured and it was very comfortable. The room is spacious and it has a big wardrobe.
It was what we were looking for!
Justyna is a great host. She was so busy so we saw her few times. However she was very helpful and friendly and we spent very good time with her when we met! She also gave us a lot of good informations about Brooklyn and Manhattan. Ask her where you can eat a very good hamburger!!!
We really liked Brooklyn and it was great meeting Justyna! Thank you, Justyna! See you soon!
This is a clean, efficient, affordable room with great access to trains and a knowledgable and friendly host! Highly recommended for anyone who wants a simple home-base to explore NYC.
I really enjoyed my time in Brooklyn and Justyna was great! The apartment was just as described, clean and comfortable. The weather was very hot when I was there in July and thankfully there was an air conditioner in the room that cooled it down great. She was knowledgeable about the area and offered her help when she could. For the price and the area I felt it was a very good value. Nothing special but everything you need and a great location.
We stayed with Justyna for 4 nights. We hardly saw her during that time since she was working late nights. We had a miscommunication (which was our own fault) regarding where to pick up the keys to the apartment, but we got this all sorted. We had a great time staying with Justyna. She is a very sweet hostess and was very welcoming after our delayed trip. She was also very helpul in giving information about interesting sites to visit in New York. Regarding the apartment: the bedroom is spacious and has lots of closet space. We enjoyed having access to the kitchen for breakfast and the neighbourhood has lots of nice restaurants and shops, definitely worth a walk! Thank you so much, Justyna, for your warmth and hospitality!!
Justyna's appartment was very comfortable and cosy. It is very close to Park Slope, a charming neighbourhood, family-friendly. Justyna was also very flexible with our schedule of arrival and departure, which we have very much appreciated.
Well located, well maintained, well... well, well everything! Justyna's flat is practical and quiet, Justyna is hospitable and helpful, and Sia (her dog) is pleasant company. If we had to do it again, we'll do it the same! Just perfect.
Gowanus feels like an authentic neighborhood. We really miss it. Justyna is a caring host. Being a Brooklyn(ite?) and an avid foodie she guided us to beautiful spots around town. She was easy to reach throughout the day if needed. She left us a list of activities and basic information. The space is so big for a Brooklyn apartment! It was a wonderful comfortable stay. 3 blocks from the subway, walking distance to beautiful streets and great venues; I would recommend this spot, indeed.
Great host e great location, we stayed there for 6 nights and we would do it again, the room was spacious and clean. The way to the subway is about 5 Minutes. There are many market and bar in the area. We were happy and it is just perfect for sightseeing in New York. Thanks Justyna we hope to see you again, may be in Barcelona...
