Brand new queen size bed & brand new 46"flat screen HD TV with Apple TV & FREE NETFLIX!! Private apartment all newly renovated with full kitchen, living room, large bedroom and full bathroom. One floor walk up and one block from the train to Manhattan!
Also convenient to supermarket, banks, salons, spa, bars etc.
Laundromat across the street, and plenty of places to eat!
Great location. Very close to the M train. Very clean appt. with upgraded appliances. Bed too soft for our taste. Christen is a great host.
I enjoyed both short stays with Christen, the first time I've been in the Ridgewood neighborhood. She's friendly and helpful, and her apartment is spacious by NY standards--high ceilings, roomy kitchen, etc, Very easy access to the M train, which in turn intersects with the L, A, C, and J. Access to dynamic Bushwick and uber-trendy Williamsburg is easy, yet the neighborhood is still quiet. If you're visiting people in this part of the city, as I was, you have few hotel options, and this is a great alternative.
Very nice appartement, good location next to the subway station, plenty of shops and a nice cafe around. Easy to use kitchen. Christen's recommendations were very helpful. The bed is very soft: if you like that, the appartment is the perfect choice to spend a few days in NY.
This little apt is clean and modern, in a quiet neighborhood with a ton of shops around, lots of good ethnic places to eat or get food. It's very close to a metro station so it was real easy to get around. I felt safe always. Christen was quick to respond to any of my questions or problems, she was really helpful. My only complaint is that the radiator kept the place WAY too hot, there was no way to control it. I hope to stay there again.
It was a pleasure to meet Christen! She was highly accommodating and gave us tips of her area. We actually went to the market she recommended and ended up purchasing groceries. We initially told her we weren't going to be using the kitchen but we couldn't refuse =) We cooked steak and pasta in her kitchen which had all the plates, pans, utensils you need. Just buy your ingredients in the 24 hr market and your all set. Her apt was especially clean, warm, inviting and well furnished. We had a memorable trip in the city and going back to that apt made it so much better. We loved our stay and we highly recommend her. Thanks again Christen!
Enjoyed Christen's apartment, which was sparkly clean and is enormous by NY standards, equivalent to a hotel suite. One teensy tiny thing that was difficult for me, as a reader-in-bed, was that there was no light for reading except the overhead, and the switch was on the other side of the room. This may be because the large and very soft bed took up all the space on that side of the room. Otherwise, delightful neighborhood, delightful host.
We had a good time in New York. We have good and a few less good things about Christen's appartement.
But first to Christen-you were very friendly-thank u for everything.
First of we need to say - for better understanding for other airbnb users-that we're used to very high standards of living in Switzerland. This might be the reason why we are not too overwhelmed and happy like other guests. The appartement was okay, not exactly like our first impression from the pictures in advance-but comfortable. There was enough space for us to live.. the new TV was nice and modern-but without cable TV-so in case someone would like to watch TV or a movie -you are obliged to pay ( apple tv) , so we couldn't use it. The new king size bed was too soft and not comfortable- we had back pain during the hole week. The neighbor in the appartment above was often very loud around midnight. There were a lot of old foods and beverages of other people which have stayed at Christen's before... and the mirrorlight in the bathroom was out of order and was not fixed until we left. The only good things were Christen herself and that the appartement was near the subway station. We don't think we would spend another holiday in Christen's appartment. We tried to give an honest feedback because we think this is how airbnb is most effective and helpful.
Had a great stay in Ridgewood! A very cool & friendly neighborhood. Place was very clean & had some nice decorations. Christen was very kind & responsive too. I would definitely stay here again!
Christen is an amazing host, and her apartment is outstanding. It was exactly what I was looking for: incredibly clean, well furnished, a great bed, and quite spacious.
It was also nice and quiet in the neighborhood, which is a huge plus for me personally.
On top of all that, there's a huge HDTV at the foot of your bed, which is a huge plus.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended!
My wife and I spent 4 days in NY; Christen's apartment was exactly as we thought: cozy, modern, full of light, clean, quiet, with everything we needed in it. Great bathroom! Christen herself is a nice person, prompt and helpful.
The apartment is in excellent position to train or buses to Manhattan, a 25-30 minutes ride to Rockefeller center. The area is very safe to walk. Be aware, during weekends, when you go to and come from the town, you may you might have to get off the train at Myrtle Wykoff station and take a free shuttle bus for 2-3 stops. At this train station, mind eventual pick-pockets, especially when there's an improvised show on the platform...but that's NY...
At about 10-15 minutes walk to North-East there are a Polish and 2 Japanese restaurants. We recommend the Polish one, good food and quick/kind service.
We warmly recommend Christen's place.
