Annette was a wonderful host, giving us the best Airbnb experience that we have ever had! She was friendly, helpful, & extremely welcoming. Annette's loft was warm, had everything you could possibly need, incredible location & was amazing overall. We look forward to seeing Annette again whether it be on her side or our of the world!
Annette was a friendly, accommodating, flexible host. Her loft was clean, comfortable, and well-situated near two subway stops, shops, and restaurants. I will definitely re-book. Thank you, Annette.
Thanks to Annette and her great loft we have lived in DUMBO for a week! The apartment gives you all the comfort you need, has a very nice atmosphere and the kitchen really has has every utensils what you could wish. With supermarkets just around the corner it was a pleasure to have the opportunity to make our own breakfast. But if you're not in the mood, there a plenty of nice places to have breakfast, just coffee, lunch or diner. A very cool neighborhood and a good subway connection that brought us everywhere we wanted. Annette was a great host! From the beginning she was so kind and welcoming. I really would recommend her loft and her hospitality to anyone!
Oh and about the noise of the train: yes, you hear it, but I really got use to it very quickly and slept like a baby, without earplugs.
The week at Annette's Appartment was just perfect! The loction is stunning, even though that it's was a bit loud because of the train at the bridge.
Annette as a host was very kindly and she is alway there, when you have questions!
I really recommend this location!
Esta es nuestra tercera experiencia en el apartamento de Annette. Todo maravilloso, como siempre. Limpio, ordenado, ubicación excelente. No duden en reservarlo. Igualmente Annette es muy atenta y cariñosa con sus huéspedes. Repetiremos seguro!!
Annette was a very welcoming and helpful host which was much appreciated after a long journey. The apartment was exactly as depicted in the photos and was spacious and comfortable with great amenities and views. I have nothing adverse to say except that it was a little noisier than expected, but that did not detract from our stay. DUMBO is a nice friendly neighbourhood and the apartment is very well placed to access local shops and the East River Ferry and Subway. Annette was kind enough to organise a taxi for our departure as well. I would not hesitate to recommend Annette's apartment to others wishing to stay in the DUMBO or Brooklyn area.
Une expérience unique dans un lieu extraordinaire...Ce loft typiquement New-yorkais est sublime, confortable et décoré avec beaucoup de goût. Ce lieu est encore mieux que sur les photos et la vue sur le pont de Brooklyn le soir est magique. Dumbo est un quartier ou l on se sent bien avec toutes le commodités à proximité et la ligne de métro est celle qui dessert le mieux Manhattan. Parlons de notre hôte : Annette... est une femme fascinante, très agréable et hyper disponible. Elle nous a donnée plein de conseils très utile à notre arrivé pour notre séjour. New-York n'aurait pas était aussi incroyable autre part que dans ce loft et sans la rencontre avec Annette.
Annette was a great host and the loft apartment was sensational. The loft has excellent amenities and the location in DUMBO is wonderful.
Annette is a lovely host, she was very accommodating to our late arrival and was very welcoming. She has a wealth of information and is sure easy to get along with.
The loft itself is amazing with plenty of space for my husband & I. The loft is of course right under the bridge so you'll hear the train often but that didn't bother us, we slept right through it.
The dumbo area is awesome, plenty of boutiques, cafe's and interesting buildings to take photos of. There's always something happening like movies or tv shows being filmed, which we were very excited about. The loft is close to two metro stations that will take you to manhattan, probably about 20mins.
This was our first airbnb experience & we couldn't be more happier, we will definitely be back if we ever had the chance :)
Staying in Annette's loft was like a dream come true. Being there makes you feel like a real New Yorker. The loft is beautiful decorated and squeaky clean. The view is indeed breathtaking! Dumbo is a great part of Brooklyn. There is always something happening. It's close to everything: you can take the east river ferry to the Brooklyn flea on Sunday morning (and don't forget to go to Beacon's closet). I was afraid the sound of the Manhattan bridge might keep me awake at night. But it didn't, I was used to it instantly. We were so sorry to leave our temporary home but if the opportunity arises we will try to stay at Annette's loft again!
