The apartment was spacious (for Brooklyn ;) ) and well decorated with colorful art and furniture. This made for a very cozy feeling when we took some down time in the apartment. Outside of the apartment, we were very close to shops, restaurants and metro line stops, so it was very convenient.
Lastly, she provided us with some food and tea- she took the other 'B' seriously! :) We were able to get the keys late at night when we arrived and give them back early in the morning when we left- very accommodating :)
We would certainly recommend this place to anyone.
Nina's place was ideal for what we needed. It's right next to the train and a 5 minute walk from Prospect Park. Although Nina wasn't there she provided everything we needed and was easily contactable. Recommended.
Nina's apartment is beautifully decorated, spacious and cozy and located in a nice neighborhood. My mother, my grandmother and I had a great stay. Getting to Manhattan was a little long but very easy (to have the shuttle so close was a plus!). Nina wasn't there during our stay but the check-in and check-out went easily.
Nina was a great host! She let us use the apartment as our own and was attentive to all our questions and needs. The apartment is exactly as pictured.
For us, the location was not exactly ideal - we were visiting friends in Brooklyn Heights and getting around Brooklyn by train was not the best. Getting to lower Manhattan from the apartment was easy, just a little long - maybe 45 minutes.
Would definitely recommend Nina as a host, everything on her end went off without a hitch, but just be sure the location is good for where you want to be on your visit!
Nina and Tshidi were great! I booked this place for my parents to stay while they were in town visiting me, and Tshidi let me get the key the night before they arrived to make it easier on them. They even put a hair dryer in the apartment after I asked (on behalf of my mother) if there was one there.
The place was very clean and looked just like the photos. Would definitely book again!
I had an absolutely perfect stay at Ninas Place. Its clean, its charming and its in a great (email hidden)e hosts are great and super super friendly. Public transport to Manhattan is convenient. If you love to walk its a perfect place to explore some parts of Brooklyn (30 min walk to Fort Greene, Park Slope etc..). There are sweet little cafes around, the park is close. I can recommend it to everybody who is looking for an authentic and laid back New York visit.
This was my first Airbnb visit and it was awesome. Nina was a great host. She let us use the place as if it were our own. It's a great apartment, right beside the train, awesome food nearby, and a short walk from Prospect Park. She left us towels, a couple of sets of keys, internet password, and contact numbers. Couldn't ask for a better experience.
Nina was there to meet us even though we arrived at the apartment late. She was warm and friendly and gave us all the necessary information and suggestions. We enjoyed staying at the apartment.
Great Location! Close to lots of interesting things in Brooklyn (zoo, botanical gardens, etc) and easy to get to Manhattan. Free street parking was no problem either. Kitchen had a good supply of utensils/equipment and a great grocery store 1 block away. Nina was super accessible and flexible with check in and out, she is only 15 minutes away and very helpful.
We stayed there more than two weeks. Very nice place, with beautiful forniture and all the things you need. Only the location wasn't so good, we usually spent more than 30min on the train gong to Manhattan or waitin to the S shuttle which goes not so fast. Anyway, Nina is really nice and helpfull!
We enjoyed Nina and family very much. They were gracious, considerate, neat and pleasant. I would welcome them back!
Great guest to have, thank you for staying at our apartment.
It was a pleasure to host this fun loving ,easy going couple.
Nina and her partner Tshidi were wonderful guests. Very warm, interested, interesting, a beautiful couple... and loving South Africa. They left the cottage in immaculate condition which I so appreciate. Really looking forward to having them both back here on their way home.
it was a pleasure to have Nina as a guest. We communicated much by phone, and she was very appreciative of the cottage.
