I booked this stay extremely last-minute with little hope of getting a reply in time. Kristin was not only my first pick on airbnb, but also the only person to get back to me at all.
And what a lucky break--her place is gorgeous, charming and quiet, in a great location close to train lines and good food in a very comfortable neighborhood. To say nothing of my host. Kristin is very warm, with a quick wit and an easy smile. She went above and beyond to make me feel welcome, all while working a busy schedule throughout the weekend of my visit.
A great place with a great host--what could be better? Thanks again, Kristin.
Kristin is an amazing host, with a wonderful apartment. She's flexible and accommodating, and careful to make sure all is well. Carroll Gardens is a great neighborhood, packed with wonderful restaurants, and close to the subway. The apartment is clean and beautiful, with everything you need.
I wouldn't hesitate a second coming back to Kristins place! Good communication prior to our trip, Kristin made everything easy for us. She is a nice, helpful, generous, cool and organized host! Her place is amazing, you'll feel at home away from home. Clean, roomy (your bedroom is bigger as it seems on the pictures) and the area is great! Thanks again for hosting us Kristin!
Our first AirBnB exprience was excellent. Kristin was a gracious and helpful host and we had the apartment to ourselves most of the time. The photos don't show how nice and large the room is.The room and the whole apartment were clean and fresh and Carroll Gardens is a great location for exploring New York. We would not hesitate to recommend Kristin to any travelers to New York.
I went to NYC for a couple of days to show my friend the city, it was his first time in the U.S. When we arrived to the place I was ecstatic by the beautiful brownstone in this very nice area of Brooklyn. It has a PERFECT LOCATION, so close to the subway, restaurants, bars, but still calm & quiet at night to sleep well (no traffic noises) The room is bigger than what I thought with a very spacious closet, and the whole apartment is very pleasant & clean. We loved the view from the room, it is wonderful & Kristin is very easy going and flexible.
Did not give me a refund when I had to cancel my stay. -____-
Kristin's apartment is beautiful, clean, and close to the subway. She's a gracious, friendly, helpful host. The neighborhood, Carroll Gardens, is a good mix of old and new Brooklyn, and it's a short trip to Manhattan.
The apartment is located in a really cool neighborhood in Brooklyn (but also only 15-20 min from Manhattan) and is gorgeous. Kristin was an awesome host and made sure everything was tidy and that we had everything we needed. Will definitely stay here again the next time I'm in NY.
Best deal in the City! 1 block from subway in quite Brooklyn neighborhood. Kristin is a wonderful host and I will be staying here for all my up coming NYC trips.
I had the pleasure of staying at Kristin's space around the New Year Holidays in 2012. This classic Brooklyn brownstone apartment is really quiet and is literally one block away from subway. Easy and fast access to most destinations in NYC via the F and G trains. The windows are large and overlook a park. As an added bonus, you even get some partial skyline views :)
Not only did I enjoy the apartment, but Kristin herself was a great host. She is super nice and did everything possible to make my stay a great one. I highly recommend staying at her apartment.
