I'm originally from a vineyard in New Mexico, but at this point in my life, I'm the co-founder of StoryKeep, a media production company that tells people's live stories.
Lisa's place was HEAVEN. Very quiet, homey neighborhood with useful stores nearby, the BEST Thai food in NYC (AmThai on McDonald), and lots of parking. Her cats were extremely well-behaved, the kitchen was perfect for cooking and late-night conversations, and the separation of the two bedrooms made privacy easy to come by. Lisa has a beautiful, funky style that made staying at her place all the more relaxing. The train is close, the park is close, the highway is close, and if you stay during the summer, Coney Island is close too.....I highly recommend the Sunny Holiday Retreat!
Lisa and her mom were excellent guests. They arrived late and departed early so we had very minimal contact They were very low maintenance visitors and left the room very neat and clean. We highly recommend them as guests.
Lisa and her Mum visited for several days and getting to know them both was a delight. Lisa shared her unique business venture for treasured life stories StoryKeep and I spilled a few of my own of course :-). Both were gracious, capable, interesting guests who shared willingly about themselves. They enjoy the outdoors and wonder of humanity and your home will be in good hands with either.
