I live in Brooklyn, New York City - when I'm not traveling for work or fun which turns out to be most of the time. I am trying to live a happy and gratitude filled life.

This was my first airbnb experience and I liked it very much. I arrived later then planned, so the plan how to get the keys failed, but Joy had a backup plan which worked fantastic (better than fixes in 4-star hotels); the aptmnt was as described, nice, cleen, cosy and personal, the street quiet and very well conneted (50 or 400 yards with all major destinations at hand).
I didn't get to meet Joy in person, but on the phone, she was really friendly and helpful, and always responded quickly to any messages I sent. She left the key in a close-by shop for me to pick up which worked out without any issues. The apartment is small, but decorated in a way that doesn't make it feel crammed at all: the furniture has a tasteful modern design, the wooden floors and white walls open up the room, and the windows let in lots of light. It was clean and tidy, looked like on the photos here. The heating was a bit warm for my taste, but apparently that's centrally controlled, so not within Joy's control.
The studio is great and exactly what we were looking for. My girlfriend and I were only in NYC for few days for our friends' wedding but the location is also fantastic if you are looking to have more of a holiday. There are lots of bars and restaurants within 2 blocks and the Fort Greene neighbourhood is really lively. If you are heading into Manhattan then the entrance to the Subway is literally 20 yards from the front door. Getting there from JFK airport on the subway is easy too. Absolutely no need to take an expensive taxi.
Although Joy wasn't there herself when we arrived, she got in touch early, was very flexible and made sure that we knew where to go. She left clear instructions for collecting the keys from a shop around the corner which was hassle free and was at the other end of the phone for when we had a question. It was clean, comfortable and exactly as advertised. We would definitely like to stay at Joy's again if we went back to NYC.
This was a great introduction to AirBnB!
Very nice apartment and everything worked perfectly.
Joy's apartment fit the description perfectly. It was spacious, bright and pleasant. Joy was very easy to work with and quick to respond to any questions I had. She wasn't in town when we arrived, but had arranged for us to pick up the key from a local establishment. The apartment was very convenient and travel was easy. Although, we loved the neighborhood and were happy to spend time there. Lots of great restaurants, bars and shops steps away. I would recommend this studio! Thanks Joy!
Joy's apartment was so perfect for my boyfriend and I for the weekend. It was so clean and comfortable, and one of the best mattresses I've slept on at an airbnb. We did not have the pleasure of meeting Joy but she made check-in and out very clear and easy for us. Absolutely no issues, everything was ideal. Definitely recommended! Thanks so much Joy!
Everything about using airbnb was so easy. Our host was great about communicating with us about location and keys and checking on us after we arrived. The apartment in Brooklyn was absolutely perfect for our visit - great area and location to the subway and our family.
Joy was easy to work with and her place was cute and neat as promised. A nice central location in Fort Greene to spend a weekend in Brooklyn. Thanks Joy.
Joy was a wonderful guest. Easy to communicate with, friendly and respectful. 100% recommended!
Joy is a nice guest...she stayed with us only one night or the four booked since she wanted to join some friends. Hope liked staying with us.
Joy was a very courteous, neat, and quiet guest. I would highly recommend her to other hosts.
Great guess! Very easy to get in touch with when we need to. Thanks Joy!!
Great guest - welcome back anytime!
Joy and her traveling companion were very fine guests -- and even had to find their way here in the dark after a snafu with the water taxi + shuttle schedule. I hope their travels are always easy from now on!
