Photographer, art and music lover--appreciates meeting our great guests from all over the world and providing accommodations for an enjoyable stay in NYC!
We spent a lovely week at Karen's studio.
Her hospitality helped us a lot and made us feel at home.
Everything in the studio was in excellent conditions, and it is really well located.
We will totally recommend our friends to stay with her when they visit NYC.
Thank you very much Karen!!!
Karen was a great host--communicative, warm, and responsive. The apartment is exactly as specified, with even nicer organization and amenities than I expected (ex. cookware and dishware is very nice, makes cooking simple meals pleasurable, ample cleaning and toiletry products available for use). The neighbors in the buildling and Karen herself were lovely, as was the location. It was a true joy to walk out to the stoop every day and great a beautiful day in NYC! I was wistful to leave and have already recommended highly to other friends that come to city frequently as I do.
We stayed at Karen's for 10 days and enjoyed every minute! The place was clean, in a great neighborhood and exactly as advertised. Karen was an awesome host with great stories and plenty of advice about NYC. Subway stations are only a couple blocks away making it very easy to get around the city. We would definitely love to stay there again if/ when we are back in New York.
We enjoyed our trip. The place was very nice and clean. It s very well situated, closed to central park.
Karen is a very kind person. She gave us good advices
Il will recommend the apt to my friends.
The sweet brownstone studio is just amazing! The location is close to everything, subway, shops, cafes and really good restaurants are just around the corner. And 78th street is beautiful too! Lots of trees, very quiet at night and just a block away from central park!! The studio is exactly how it looks like on the pictures. Very spacious, comfy bed, really clean, plenty of fresh towels, just anything you need to feel comfortable!
It was a perfect choice for us and we couldn't have been luckier with Karen as our host. Allover a great place!
Wow, what an incredible time we had thanks to Karen. The studio surpassed all our expectations, and Karen is such a warm and caring person. Being new to New York, Karen gave us excellent tips were to start our exploration. We couldn't have asked for better. No, seriously, we could not have asked for better!
This sweet brownstone studio was perfect for us(a couple staying for under two weeks) and exactly as advertised. The location in our opinion is perfect for visiting Manhattan - five minutes walk from numerous subway lines, as well as restaurants etc, and once on the subway only ten minutes or less to the hustle and bustle of the 'midtown' area. It is also a short stroll to the sanctuary that is Central Park. We really appreciated having the kitchen facilities available where we could prepare breakfast and snacks too. Karen was super helpful in providing to us tips on where to eat when we arrived. The bed was also really comfortable. This place would suit a couple staying for a short amount of time as it a studio apartment. We really enjoyed our stay here.
We couldn't have stayed in a better place. The apartment is cozy, clean, comfortable (great bed!) and in a great location. Close to metros, shopping, groceries.
Karen is amazing. She is such a kind person, helped us out on a million occasions and always with a huge smile. We loved bumping into her on the steps and chatting about our day.
We spent 8 nights at Karen's Sunny Brownstone on the UWS in May 2012, and everything about our visit was great. And yes - it was sunny too! Karen is an excellent AirBnB host, and she made sure that everything went smoothly for us, from confirming our booking via email, picking up the keys (she was waiting for us right outside in her car), through to being flexible about our check out time on our last day. Karen is also a *really* cool person, and gave us loads of recommendations of where to shop for groceries, eat and get great coffee in the local neighbourhood. The apartment is perfect for a couple - clean, comfortable and well equipped - exactly as shown in the photos. Thanks so much Karen - we'll certainly come stay again when we are in NY, and it would be great to return the favour and host you here in London if you ever get to make the trip to the UK :-))
Staying at Karen's place was excellent. The studio and the building have a real Manhattan atmosphere and you can feel like a native New Yorker. The studio is super quiet with windows looking at peaceful garden. Localisation is perfect. Five minutes walk form local red and blue subways and ten minutes from major express junction. Central Park and AMNH are just block away. Upper West Side is quiet and atmospheric. Lots of good deli, restaurants and bars just around the corner.
Karen is a wonderful host. Super nice and friendly, always eager to talk and super helpful. She'll guide you through the neighbourhood and tell you hints about the city that you won't find in any tourist guide.
I can't recommend it highly enough.
A nice person...
