Taz from New York City, I was born in Canada and speak French!
Taz was very warm, open and timely throughout our correspondence. Although we did not meet in person, she was very accommodating to the needs of my guests and I (she allowed a later check out, even replaced a child's bed with a twin bed and offered herbs and produce from her backyard garden). Clear details and instructions for the house were provided prior to our stay, including a nice welcome card upon arrival! The house is a cozy retreat on a quieter street with a nice mix of older and newer decor and finishes. There is plenty of reading material and music to enjoy in the relaxing living room or front porch swing. The Annex is a vibrant neighbourhood just steps away from shops, grocery stands, cafes, bars, restaurants, public spaces and local transit, very convenient for my guests and I. Thanks again for a fantastic stay, this space is definitely recommended!
Über Gastgeberin und Appartement kann ich nur das Beste sagen. Taz hat alles super organisiert, die Schlüssel vorab zugesandt und in einem Brief alle wissenswerten Infos bündig zusammengefasst. Das Flat selbst ist von der Grundfläche her nicht so groß, geht aber über zwei Etagen. Es befindet sich in einem modernen Wohnhaus, hat zwei Schlafzimmer, ein gemütliches Wohnzimmer mit Wohnküche, ein modernes Bad, einen hübschen Balkon und alle Facilities, die man so braucht. Es ist wirklich eine Privatwohnung, Taz wohnt hier mit ihrer Tochter. Die Wohnung liegt für New Yorker Verhältnisse ziemlich ruhig.
Die Umgebung ist genau so, wie man sich Williamsburg vorstellt: in Veränderung begriffen oder, wenn man es kritisch betrachten will, im Prozess der Gentrifizierung. Die direkte Nachbarschaft scheint von Latinos geprägt zu sein, auf der Straße wird überwiegend Spanisch gesprochen. Ansonsten, wie zu erwarten, jede Menge Hipster aller Arten. Alles in allem eine sehr sympathische Mischung an zumeist jungen Leuten. Es macht Spaß, sich abends in den Restaurants, Bars und Kneipen herumzutreiben.
Die Verbindungen nach Manhattan sind gut, wenngleich man sich als Europäer daran gewöhnen muss, dass U-Bahnen hier sehr langsam sind. Also immer mehr Zeit einplanen für Termine!
Insgesamt also volle Empfehlung für Taz' Appartement!
Wir (Vater und Sohn) haben uns da sehr wohl gefühlt.
The reservation was canceled 10 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Taz's apartment was perfect for our needs. As two visiting couples the place was cosy, nearby to transport and some awesome local eats. The apartment is comfortable and has all the mod-cons you could ask for - incredible oven, powerful shower and great heating/air-con! Also quiet in the evenings. Taz herself was a total pleasure to communicate with - quick to respond, friendly and reliable. Thank you Taz!
Great place, great area. Honestly, I don't know how she does it for the price in this neighborhood. The apartment is fantastic, the balcony definitely a bonus. Taz was very responsive and accommodating. Overall this was a amazing experience and could not have gone more smoothly.
As it was quite snowy out when we were there, we actually really enjoyed being stuck inside for a little bit.
For those who are curious, it's close to the trains and restaurants as well as a few bars we stumbled upon while wandering about. We were able to get into the city with incredible ease, but spent the night time around the neighborhood as you don't need to venture too far from the apartment to find what you're looking for.
We were there these Thanksgivings holidays and it was really good. The apartment is even better than you can see in the pictures and the neighborhood is really nice. I think it is a very good place because you can spent the day visiting NY and then come back and have a fancy dinner or some drinks. Taz was super nice and she was pretty responsive so any doubt or question was quickly answered. If I come back I'll probably try to rent this apartment!
We had an awesome stay! Warm, comfortable apartment with perfect kitchen. Super location - walking distance to multiple subways. Plus we had a blast stumbling across gems in the neighborhood!
We had a very pleasent stay at Taz place. The apartement had all that you need, and the welcoming and warmth of Taz,s way of helping us before we arrived and the way the apartement looked like made us feel at home!.
Spent 6 nights and found the location and apartment perfect to my needs. Took about 10-15mins to walk to Bedford Ave, 2 mins to Metropolitan station and about 5 mins to Hewes station. No matter where you want to go it is close by, lots of really good restaurants and Taz left a great recommendation list of places to go/eat/drink which I made use of.
The apartment was on the 3rd floor so a few flights of stairs to reach your Brooklyn retreat. Beds were very comfortable and the place was very homey. I really only have great things to say about our stay! As well a quick recommendation...on South 3rd we found a great little sandwich shop called Knife please do check it out!
Thanks Taz for sharing your home with us and hopefully Chai Chai had only good things to say about us! All the best.
Our stay at Taz's Williamsburg loft was wonderful. She was great with communication and even managed to overnight the keys to us before check-in when we couldn't find a convenient time to meet up in person. The loft is clean, tastefully furnished, and nicer than the photos! There were even lilies in a vase and calming music playing for us when we arrived. Taz is an incredibly thoughtful host and I highly recommend visiting her anytime!
GOOD EXPERIENCE WITH TAZ.
I RECOMMEND HER,
