From New York
Caroll is a very nice and reliable host. She was kind and helpful even if we checked in late because of transport problems. Her place is cozy and only 20 minutes away from the city centre by subway.
We had a great time in Brooklyn, the neighbourhood is really nice and quiet and the subway is just a few minutes away.
Caroll was really nice and patient as we arrived late for the check in, she was opened and helpful if we had any kind of questions about the city.
The apt was nice, the kitchen is small but it's just enough if you don't need to cook and want just to make some coffee.
WI-FI connection didn't work for the entire stay, there is an internet cable for the PC but as we only had Iphone and Ipad we couldn't use the connection.
Fortunately there is air conditioning in the room as during our last three days it was really hot!
Overall, we had a great experience and we recommand this apartment if you want to live a real new yorker experience, living in Brooklyn instead of Manhattan.
The location was fine, the apartment was nice and had everyting we needed.
Caroll is very reliable.
Great location, pretty apartment.
Good place to stay in Brooklyn. Good location, easy to go in manhattan with the subway. The apartment is enough for a couple. It s exactly like on the pictures maybe a little older. We are happy to stay in this apartment for our vacation. Thanks to Caroll for our arrival.
Very nice flat! Well situated! Easy to park if you rent a car... Sunny in the morning, calm. We had a great time.
My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay here. The place is very well decorated, has great light, and is very cozy. It quickly felt like home. We got off the C train from JFK and were able to find the place easily. Caroll was waiting for us and showed the apartment. She described the quirks of the old building and tips on using the space. Caroll was prompt, helpful, and very kind. We experienced a quiet atmosphere each of the five nights; we never ran into any other tenants of the building. Caroll is flexible, we found a convenient meeting time that worked to end our stay. Overall I had a good time here and would stay again.
The apartment was just great -- comfy, clean, creatively decorated, bright, and convenient to the subway. And Caroll was very friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend it!
First off, it was the first time my girlfriend and I used airbnb.
About the host: She is very pleasant and helpful giving out info about things we asked about. She was on time when we met and there were no changes of schedule once it was agreed upon. Well, actually, we were the ones a little late for check-in and check-out but she was patient and understanding about it.
About the apartment: We enjoyed it. No unpleasant surprises. It is a bit old but fine.This means that there are silly little details about some things that make it not quite perfect but they all work fine (e.g. at the time, the door was a little weird to close, but not complicated and, more importantly, it worked fine). These details were not a problem for us. The kitchen is very small but the actual stove is fine for making coffee (which is the only thing we needed it for). She made some room for us in a closet and drawers so we could use if we wanted to. The place is about 6 min walking from the C train which takes you right into Manhattan. There are a couple of food places (pizza places and a nice cafe she recommended when we asked) and a couple of supermarkets close by.
All in all a pleasant experience. We had a great time in New York.
Nice neighbourhood. Very convenient to transit. Caroll was helpful in getting me settled in. I definitely recommend staying here.
Caroll was the perfect guest! Considerate, carefull, clean, quiet and fun to talk to. She even took pics of the house to improve my airbnb! how can it get better? of course, I definitely recommend her.
Even if she stayed with us just one night we can say thatCaroll is a nice person and a great guest. We truly recommend her!
Caroll rented my bedroom for about a week. She is very quite and discrete and I didn't feel that she was in the house. I would definitely recommend her as a flatmate/roommate :-)
