I do food and drink marketing and partnerships with startups, big brands, chefs, and sommeliers.
The location was outstanding and in the heart of Williamsburg (vice magazines office was walking distance). The room had good sun, a working heating unit, ample storage, a queen mattress, but very minimal space beyond that. The rest of the apartment was tidy, but it badly needed a cleaning service to come by. The room is also within ear shot of the heavy metal front door that would awaken all but the heaviest sleepers.
Leiti's apartment is super! Comfortable bed, clean as a whistle, and she waited for me after I got my trains mixed up and was late (thanks!) It's spacious by New York standards, there's an an elevator, and the bathroom is charming. The room itself is calming and light filled and Leiti has amazing recommendations for places to go. Also: location is amazing.
This spacious loft apartment is all about Location Location Location with numerous quality restaurants and bars within a few mins walk in every direction and if you're too lazy to to walk to the rooftop bar at The Wythe hotel nearby, the apartment building has a communal rooftop area which isn't too shabby either.
The fact that this really is a much loved and lived in 3 bedroom space with just one bathroom and no mirror in the guest bedroom was a worthwhile minor inconvenience when factoring in all the other benefits and a host (Leiti) who was friendly and willing to share her extensive local (foodie) knowledge.
What a lovely place to stay in the perfect location! It was incredibly easy to make contact and meet up with Leiti. Our room has great natural light as did the bathroom and living area. We got to go up to the roof of the apartment and see all of Brooklyn and Manhattan. We would highly recommend this to anyone interested in a walkable experience of Williamsburg and surrounding areas. She also gave us fantastic dinner, drinks, and brunch recommendations--so definitely ask her for tips.
Very good bed in an otherwise basic room.
Bathroom was not very clean, so if you care about that, beware !
Staying with Leiti was very relaxing - she is the most uncomplicated host you could think of. Don't miss the great view from the roof - you'll forget about any minor matters quickly.
It was a pleasure staying with Leiti.. Me and Londa enjoyed the sun filled room, the duel sinks in the bathroom and all the info that was given to ensure a pleasant stay, we really loved the selection of shops and eateries in the area.. Felt safe and a lot to do..
I recently stayed here for two months and really enjoyed my stay! Leiti is such a great host and the perfect person to stay with if you love food. She can recommend all the best places to eat depending on your budget and I was never disappointed! The bed is super comfy and the apartment is very stylish. The location is great, so close to the subway and Bedford Ave. I would go back and stay in an instant!! P.s. This is an incredibly safe place to stay if your a single female :)
Leiti was a great host, very accommodating and offered lots of tailored recommendations for how to explore the area. Our mutual love of food and her many culinary books made us all fast friends. Her apartment was so close to everything we wanted to see! I would definitely recommend.
Everything was great!! Thanks to Leiti!! She let feel us like at own home. Thank you again!!
Nice people, i recommend them.
Leiti was a wonderful guest! We enjoyed her stay very much and would find it a privilege to see her again!
Leiti is a food and drink afficionado who knows NYC well. I have no doubt that she'll be able to point you to all the best spots in NYC. :)
Leiti is one of the most fun people you can have either as a host or as a guest. She has a love of food and wine and can easily whip up an amazing list of local finds if you are a guest visiting NYC. I have also travelled with Leiti as Airbnb guests and she was our main contact with the host (we were in 9-person house) - she was uber responsible and made sure that we transitioned the house properly back to the host.
