The apartment was great and Cassie was a perfect host: communicative, friendly and thorough. When I'm headed back to NYC, I'll definitely stay at her place again.
I stayed in the is apartment for the entire month of January rather than staying in a hotel while working in DUMBO. The location was excellent for this and the apartment was comfortable and well stocked in terms of kitchen accessories. Cassie was responsive before I arrived and helpful in checking in and responding when I had questions. The only downside to the apartment was that I happened to be there during a bitter cold snap and it was very difficult to heat with so many windows - not much to be done about that and fortunately those days passed quickly and I wrapped myself in the cozy throw when I was in the apartment.
It was my first airbnb experience and was a success. Thank you Cassie!
We had a very good time at Cassie appartment. Cassie was very reliable and we didn't have any problem during our stay. We were closed from the subway and probably one the best view of Manhattan near the Brooklyn Bridge.
I will be to stay at Cassie house again!
The apartment was very nice and modern. The bed and couch was comfortable as well. Got a little cold at times but was an easy fix by turning on the heat. Would recommend to a friend!
Place was great. Very conveniently located. We actually had some bad weather and decided to stay in the first night for dinner and Cassie provided great ideas for delivery. Pedro's was great Mexican. Place was clean and well maintained. Would definitely use Cassie again.
Super clean and guest ready apartment. Very convenient getting in and out, would recommend to anyone. Thanks Cassie!
The appartement is great! Very cosy, perfectly clean and has a good location in Brooklyn. Cassie was a perfect host. I recommend it to everyone!
Cassie's place was great and as described, super easy to get to from the subway and a very quick ride into Union Square (where I had to go everyday for meetings during my trip). Stayed here in December, for Winter in NY this place can't be beat: the two heaters in Cassie's apartment get nice and toasty!
My husband and I visited Brooklyn for a couple of days to attend a couple of concerts at The Barclays Center (which was a few stops away on the train). Cassie's place is just as nice in person as it is in the photos. The place was clean and comfy with quite a bit of natural light (which you don't see in too many NY apartments). The building wasn't too big, so it was easy to just take the stairs up to her unit (although there is an elevator). She had clean towels, Trader Joe's body wash (my fave), a Keurig coffee maker (with a variety of pods to choose from) and two plasma TV's (one in the bedroom and one in the living room). Not to mention all of the furniture was extremely comfy. We never had the pleasure of meeting Cassie, but the communication was easy and she was extremely helpful. She even told us how to get from Newark Airport to her apartment on the train (which was only 2 blocks from her apartment). The location is extremely convenient if you plan on taking the train. There were also a couple of cutre restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance. The next time we're in NY we will definitely stay here again!
I liked this space so much, I booked again for another 2 day stay. It's so filled with light and conveniently located near the F train. Great restaurants around here. Love the DUMBO experience.
The flat is clean and well-appointed. Sometimes the WIFI goes in and out, but that may be as much my laptop as the server.
If I return to Brooklyn, I am definitely re-booking.
