I stayed 3 nights at Ceci's Carroll Gardens apartment in March, and from start to finish it was a very easy and pleasant experience. Ceci responded almost immediately t my reservation request, and my questions were very promptly answered. She was very accommodating, especially as I was arriving early morning after a 24-hr commute, which I really appreciated.
The apartment is delightful - exactly like the photos: bright, simply yet elegantly furnished, spotlessly clean, quiet and conveniently situated. Carroll street subway stop is a block away, allowing quick and easy access to Manhattan as well as Williamsburg. The neighborhood has everything you need from grocers to delis to book shops, along with quaint artisanal type stores, restaurants,bars, etc. there is a nearby gym which allows day passes, and the sidewalks are broad enough to run.
Ceci was the perfect host - informative and responsive when booking, and unobtrusive during our stay. The experience all round was a real pleasure, I loved the apartment and location, and hope to return again.
Thank you so much Ceci - you are an Airbnb pro!!
We stayed in Ceci's apartment for a week. It was clean, comfortable and very warm and welcoming during the cold March weather. It has 2 proper bedrooms, one large and one smaller one, both with comfortable double beds. The location is fantastic. Carroll Gardens is a very quiet and friendly neighbourhood and has so many great cafés and restaurants within a 10-15 minute walk. It's also very easy to get to Manhattan on the F line of the subway, the nearest stop being only 5 minutes from the front door. Ceci was always quick to respond to any questions and her instructions were clear and easy to follow.
The experience I had at your home
was amazing! This was my first Airbnb experience and it really set the bar! I loved the look of the apartment and it was very clean. Thanks so much Ceci!
We had to leave our apartment due to burst pipes and felt so lucky that Ceci's place was available for a solid two weeks. She was so nice and accommodating and responsive. The apartment is perfect, convenient, clean, comfortable and well-appointed. It was a real life-saver for us.
Stay in Carroll Gardens could not have been easier! Great location! Apartment was clean and easily accommodated four people!
Ceci is a great communicator. She sent very clear instructions. The information about her place was very accurate. She dealt very well with last minute requests.
The place is in a very accessible part of Brooklyn. Loved the apartment: clean, airy, one spacious room and a smaller but very adequate room. Lovely sitting area. Lots of stuff in the fridge.
Would certainly stay here again.
The apartment was fantastic. Extremely well located, very clean and looked exactly as it did in the photos which is always a good thing! Ceci the host was helpful, and left clear instructions and recommendations for around the area which was great. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking to stay in NYC.
