I've owned my home in Brooklyn since 1996, and this is my first foray into AirBnb. I'm a former restaurateur and chef. I'm friendly, easygoing and looking forward to making connections on AirBnb.
The reservation was canceled 15 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Clean, quiet and spacious apartment despite freezing conditions warm and cosy. Owner lives in the same block and is extremely helpful. On leaving the flat we felt we left a friend behind. Highly recommended and we hope to return.
Keow welcomed my girlfriend and I to her beautiful home. The apartment was well furnished, had a big comfortable bed and was warm throughout the day. It was almost too tempting to stay in bed all weekend and watch films.
If you're looking for a convenient, affordable, spacious place to stay in Brooklyn, look no further. This lovely apartment offers plenty of space (a rare thing in NYC!) and is just a couple blocks off the main drag in Cobble Hill, giving you quick access to wonderful restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. Despite being close to the highway, it's incredibly quiet within the apartment itself, and very comfortably designed with TVs throughout and plenty of relaxing room. The bed is super-comfy, too! And Keow was a perfect host; she even gave me a ride to the subway at the end of my stay so that I didn't have to drag my suitcase there. Highly recommended.
This was our first stay with airbnb and Keow could not have made us feel more at ease. The apartment was very clean and very quiet, exactly as advertised. We have family in nearby Carroll Gardens, it was an easy walk to their place or the subway. Thanks Keow, we'll definitely be back to stay again!
We found Keow's apartment really spacious&well equipped.Very cosy as she advertised it to be.There was a fully equipped kitchen plus plenty of towels,hairdryer &everything you need for a pleasant stay.The apartment also had the advantage of having a ground floor private entrance,so it was like coming back your own place.Keow was very helpful with all our questions&(website hidden) was only 3 blocks from Smith Street,where there were lots of bars&restaurants,really handy.Plus we were only minutes away from the subway which would take you to Manhattan in less than 10 minutes.on the whole,it was a wonderful place to stay.Felt like we were living in Brooklyn!!!Can't wait to go back!!!
Just came back from a fantastic week at Hick Street. The place is as absolutely as decribed-cozy, clean, and well presented. We had our 17 month old daughter with us, and she had plenty of room to run around and explore on those lazy mornings. The location is perfect, with a multitude of great restaurants, bars and shops on Court Street and Smith Street. I couldn't believe how quiet it is given how it's just next to the BQE...I didn't hear a peep. The bed was particularly comfy which was a bonus as the three of us were sharing it. Really well stocked kitchen with anything you might need to make a meal, and a lovely garden space which we didn't use but was nice to look out on. Highly recommend it and will be coming back!
This was our first time booking with AirB'n'B and we weren't entirely sure how it would work out. From check-in to check-out, the entire stay was great. Keow is courteous, friendly and helpful. The lovely garden apartment is well kept, comfortable, and just about as quiet as NYC apartments get. The location is ideal, an easy and pleasant walk through brownstone-lined streets to the F train, the ferry, cafes, restaurants, shopping etc.We will definitely be booking with Keow again.
Keow was very friendly and helpful. We were very pleased with our stay - the apartment was clean and well sound-proofed-- we could not hear the traffic or any noise from other apartments. Keow responded promptly to our questions/requests and she was flexible in allowing us to check out a bit later than the set time. Thanks for everything Keow!!
Keow was attentive and at the ready for any issues. We plan to stay again on our next trip top NY.
I have known Keow for about five years and she is wonderful person! Very friendly, helpful and gracious. She is also a great chef! She sometimes has informal cooking classes in her home. I was excited for her when she told me that she was going to join Airbnb because I know she will make a terrific host! Don't hesitate to stay at Keow's, because it is beautiful, clean , comfortable and ideally located. Enjoy!
Recently i made reservation at the last minute to stay at Keow's resident. I was surprised to hear that i was the first to stay at this apartment. I wasn't disappointed at all! This apt is on the ground floor, and decorated with all the amenities of a comfortable home :) My first impression was the new renovation of the hallway...the installation of new chair rails, moldings,the brick veneer walls that was decoratively stained.
The apartment(apt) was immaculate with new furniture, the bed was very comfortable...even the couch was so comfortable that I slept in the living room for a night because there are 2 flat televisions in bedroom and living room with Direct TV reception.
This apartment lives up to the descriptions displayed! There is also a big backyard that you can rent for summer events! Then not too far from that apartment are night life;- Clubs, variety of restaurants on Court st, or Smith st where you can whine or dine, or you can order in food if you chose to relax.
This neighborhood is the elite area of Brooklyn with million dollar homes, where the richest reside.
Then there is Pier 6 park where you can play summer beach volleyball, or just have a romantic walk through the garden, or just relax on the bench.You can fish, or relax and enjoy the beautiful light of the financial district of Manhattan across the east river.
There is a boat ride that takes you to Governor's Island( free during the summer) from Pier 6.
I did all of these exploration for the few days I spent at Keow's apt.
Keow was very receptively during my stay! Did I mention that she can pick up or drop you off at the airport? Yes she can :) You can get to Manhattan in 5 minutes if driving, or 10 minutes by train.
I will delightfully stayed at her apartment anytime is it available again.
I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THIS PLACE! PLEASE TRY IT OUT! :) :) :)
