I turned up feeling a little travel sick and Jennifer made me extremely welcome and made sure I was comfortable and had iced water without being intrusive. She has great empathy with travellers!
The apartment is clean, quirky and fun. I had my own bathroom which was a great bonus and air conditioning - which made a huge difference in the heat of a New York summer.
I really liked this neighbourhood and found people friendly. Lots of places to eat - I tried a tiny Tibetan restaurant (more of a cupboard) which sold delicious noodles and Jennifer made some great breakfast recommendations. The Third Root community health centre runs some great yoga classes.
I wished I'd had more time to spend with Jennifer but maybe next time!
Nice apartment and room. Near prospect park which is great and near some nice cafes. The neighbourhood is still quite diverse which is great.
Jennifer met us (a little early due to airport travel, which was nice of her!) She was extremely helpful, and had thought of everything - starter coffee and tea, subway access, cafes, live music in the area, etc. We loved having a new air conditioner in the heatwave, went up on the roof for the sunsets, and felt right at home. Having our own bathroom right off the room was a definite +++. It was great to explore a new (for us) Brooklyn neighborhood.
This was my first Airbnb experience. And it was wonderful! Jennifer is the perfect host, friendly and helpful. Her apartment is clean, artistic and welcoming in a simple and easy-going sort of way.
The location is fine, a residential block approximately 10 minutes from Cortelyou Road metro station.
I recommend Jennifer and her apartment to all looking for a clean, friendly, fun and laid-back place to stay in Brooklyn.
Jennifer was such a pleasure. She was very helpful and was always open to answer any of our questions about the area and the city as well. Her place was clean and comfortable. It was easy to get to the train and into manhattan. We will definitely be staying with her again the next time we are in the city.
Jennifer was a great host. Very communicative at all times. Pleasant and attentive to detail. The room was perfect with a private and complete bath that was small but just fine. Her apartment is charming. Used the refrigerator, and that was helpful. Location was good for me.
Jennifer was a great hostess, energetic and knowledgable. The room and private bathroom were very clean and the AC worked well. Jennifer even left out some snacks and coffee for us, we would definitely book the room again on a trip to Brooklyn.

About the Host, Jennifer
I am a dance/movement therapist and artist. I currently work with children at a public school. Creative, friendly, and flexible. :) I love to travel and commit to exploring more of this beautiful world this year.
2 others (including myself) live in the apartment which is laid out for ample privacy. They all work a lot and are rarely home but quite friendly and tidy when they are.
