Writer/teacher from UK now happily settled in Brooklyn.
Very peaceful place. Good place to study, read, do work. Friendly neighborhood where everyone knows each other and talks with each other. Julia is an excellent host giving me space and privacy; providing good advice and conversation when appropriate. I would highly recommend the place. Also the proximity to the park is fantastic.
Great room in a great neighboorhood! Perfect to explore Park Slope. Shops and nice coffees are only minutes away. Room is quiet and huge! Juila is very welcoming and uncomplicated. I definetely recommend to stay there!
Loved it! Beautiful, typical brownstone house. Very large bedroom with bed, couch, huge tv and even a small study attached if you want to get some work done. Shared bathroom (bath/toilet/sink) so you might meet the owners in the corridor. No kitchen, but fridge and microwave in the room. Lots of fresh towels. Clean, airy, very nice people, tons of interesting books in the room on art/film/acting. If you need some advice, Julia will definately help you out. Around the corner is a subway-stop that takes you straight into Manhattan. The end of the street meets the park. Close to Brooklyn restaurants, coffeeshops, bike-rentals, everything you need. Everything the add promised. They like quiet people after 10 pm because of the sleeping children in the building. If you want to party in your room, you better go some place else. Would definately go there again.
Julia was lovely, and considerate, and her home was inviting with a shabby chic twist. The street is beautiful, quiet, and full of brownstones. We very much enjoyed our stay.
I loved staying in this property. Julia is very welcoming and everything we wanted was there.
The location is perfect for those wishing to explore Park Slope and Windsor Terrace. The restaurants and stores are on her doorstep! The park is 2 mins walk away! There is a corner store where you can get great coffee in the morning right accross from the house.
The subway is about 3 minutes from the house ...we were in Manhattan in 30 minutes with no hassle at all. We have family in Brooklyn and have stayed in many hotels both in Manhattan and Brooklyn...none have the space , airy feel, lots of windows , great shower , quiet nights, and interesting location that Julias place has.
I will return and would highly recomend it!
Julia was a nice guest who left a nice note and poem. Good luck and safe journey!
Julia and David were fantastic guest! They are a nice, warm, fun, artistic couple. They communicated well w/ me and were very easy to coordinate and arrange things with. I would recommend them as guest and look forward to having them back some day.
