Beautiful room and house. The white walls and curtains and minimal decorations made us feel soothed and relaxed after cold winter shopping and site-seeing. Elli met us on arrival and was prompt, responsive, and very sweet. She was a great host!
We booked pretty last-minute, so Elli's quick responses to our questions were particularly appreciated!
The only downside was that the central heating caused the room to be quite hot and dry at night, but we visited during a particularly cold week.
We had a wonderful stay with Elli. The apartment was very clean and beautifully presented. We found it to be a lovely peaceful retreat from the busy city, even though there is so much to do and see right on the doorstep and so quick to get to all areas of Manhattan. Elli was very helpful and had some great suggestions of things to see and do (we loved Smorgasburg & the Brooklyn Flea!)
Beautiful, calm and pristinely clean space, with a comfortable bed, great shower and everything that I needed. Great location, very near to the subway and lots of cafes and restaurants. Elli is a kind and charming host. I will be back!
Fantastic room, very clean and comfortable, and in a perfect location to explore Williamsburg. Elli was a great host, very accommodating and had lots of interesting recommendations. I had a great stay!
Elli was a great host, although I only really saw her a couple of times during my stay. The house is in a great area and the room was as described.
Elli was such a nice and hospitable host. She made us feel very welcome and gave us lots of good advice on the neighborhood.
The apartment is situated in the very centre of lovely, cool Williamsburg, which itself has a lot to offer.
The room was nice, quiet and clean.
We will definitely recommend a stay at Elli's place!
