Marina is a very kind host, always anserwing very fast and in a helpful way.
We stayed 10 nights at her apartment which is very close to the subway (about 4 minutes to walk) and in a good neighborhood in Brooklyn. The apartment is located in a big and old house. We felt a bit like a short-term-inhabitant of Brooklyn, but we experienced also the disadvantages which come with the age of the house: the old heating system, the sometimes dripping tap in the bathroom and the draughty windows. Maybe this is all much better in the summer time ;)
The cats were okay and adapted to new people, but can't go out. So you have to like cats because they are always around in the living room.
With this apartment, you get a trustworthy host, two not-so-cuddly cats very close and an authentic living-in-NY-/Brooklyn-experience.
My boyfriend and I tried this place as a first airbnb experience, also we hadn't planned much, so it was booked last minute and Marina was very quick to respond. She was a very kind and warm host, our first day arriving to NYC was rough because of a huge bus delay and she was patient and communicating with us to make things work out. She was willing to leave her work for a bit and print directives and additional information to come meet us afterwards to give us the keys at a meeting point because of our arrival later than expected. We took care of her cats during our stay, they were gentle and charming and were nice extra company. The apartment is located near a subway which was rather convenient for us as we spent most of the day out and visiting Manhattan, and we enjoyed living like locals in the neighbourhood. It also felt safe when we were walking home at night. The apartment was a bit more cluttered than expected, but all the basic necessities were available and the bedroom was quite cozy. There were shops, groceries and restaurants nearby as well. Thanks again Marina for everything and for letting us stay at your apartment! :)
Marina was a wonderful host and very accommodating to our needs. Our flight kept getting delayed and she very selflessly awaited our arrival, and even provided an affordable taxi service for us to contact. The place was pretty no frills, but our booking was extremely short notice and we weren't aiming to stay inside for our trip anyhow. My understanding is that a lot of New York apartments are pretty old, and such was the case with this space. We enjoyed living like locals, and Marina had plenty of recommendations for our stay. We had to look after her cats while there, and they were sweet little creatures, but if you are sensitive to animal ailments, one of them has a milky eye (though both are very sweet natured). All in all a great introduction to airbnb. I would book with Marina, as long as you're not looking for the Ritz, but rather a local space with some a few rough edges in a huge building in an up and coming neighborhood.
First of all the apartment was clean and looks just like the pictures, no bad surprises. It is truly a very cosy apartment and a place where you quickly feel at home. The bedroom is nice and the light is just fantastic. The kitchen/living room is very comfortable and has everything you will need for cooking. The place is very close to the subway and the neighborhood is great.
Marina was a super host, very kind and responded really quick to my request. She was very helpful giving directions from the airport and furthermore she gave a lot of tips and information about the neighborhood, which was really usefull. Marina was very great communicating with during the whole stay. I would definitely recommend her and be glad to stay there again, when I come back to NYC.
