I love to travel, explore, read, swim, and play with dogs. I'm originally from upstate, NY and have been living in NYC for almost a decade.
Park Slope is great and we loved walking around - it is especially wonderful if you have kids. Many places to visit within walking distance. Even though Rachel was not there she made sure everything was set in place. Her friends helped us with our heavy suitcases and we felt very welcomed. Communication with Rachel was always swift and pleasant. Her place felt homey and we very much enjoyed our stay!
This was my first Airbnb experience and it worked out very well. Rachel was very accommodating. It was conveniently located near the subway and this was important because we didn't actually spend much time in the apartment. 7th avenue is a great place to be and can be loud as others have said. We kept the fan on to block out the early morning street noise.
Rachel's place is wonderful. Clean, tidy, everything is good working order. Rachel was very responsive and easy to work with. Great location. Two blocks from Prospect Park. Subway stop is at the corner. And best of all, her apartment is perched atop a doughnut shop! Hope to make a return visit soon.
I had a fantastic time in Rachel's apartment. It is a great location (the subway to Manhattan is just on the corner of the block and there are all the shops you need within walking distance) and the apartment is clean and spacious. Rachel was an excellent host; she responded quickly to emails and was always friendly and helpful. I would recommend Rachel and her apartment to anyone interested in staying in Brooklyn and would happily stay there again!
Rachel's apartment is very nice. It was a perfect location for us. Anything you want is a short walking distance away including the F train. Also, it's reasonably priced. Thank you Rachel we had a great time.
The neighbourhood is great. The apartment comfortably slept 2 adults and 2 kids. The access to the subway could not be better. Rachel had lots of good advice.
The apartment description is exactly what you will get, no more, no less. The location is just great, you will have everything you need just as you walk out the apartment, the subway is literally around the corner and it takes around 20 minutes to get to Manhattan; there are restaurants all over the street that are open even late at night. The bed is comfortable, and the air bed was good as well. The apartment is not too small, it can definitely fit 4 people very comfortably. Just as other reviews said, it can get a little too loud at nights when you are trying to fall asleep, so if you are sensitive to loud noise at night this is not the right place for you. The linens and towels were very clean, and in general everything was clean, however the apartment was a little dusty and this might have contributed to my allergies while staying there. Rachel was very nice to us, and she made all the necessary arrangements to get the keys to us on time.
We spent New Years at Rachel's and had a great time. You really couldn't ask for a better location in Brooklyn. Right on the subway line and in the heart of Park Slope.
Communication with Rachel was great and she was very accommodating in arranging pick up of keys and recommending local sights and attractions.
I booked Rachel's place for my parents over Christmas. The apartment was warm and inviting and perfectly located. A great place to stay in Park Slope!
You just couldn't ask for a more pleasant, more responsive and responsible host than Rachel. She returned every email and text promptly, and did everything she could to make the stay successful, including "rolling with it" when our plane was delayed. This was as seamless as I could imagine it being.
Rachel and Brian were great guests. Communication was always great, they left the apartment almost cleaner when they checked-in. I hope I get the chance to host them again
Rachel and her friend were wonderful guests and I was delighted to have them over. They were respectful and attentive, our interaction was always lovely and I thank them for taking such good care of the place! I do hope they come back to Lisboa and I highly recommend them!
Rachel was a wonderful guest. She and her boyfriend were very kind, pleasant and easy to communicate with. They were very clean and respectful of the space, leaving things in perfect condition. I would recommend her as a guest and would always welcome her back!
