I love to read
I only have great things to say!
This was my first airbnb experience and it was really wonderful! The place was beautiful, big and was incredibly clean. The interior design and decoration were so well done. It really added to the whole New Year's Eve in New York experience. The neighbourhood also had lots to offer and it was close to the subway.
Communication leading up to the stay went smoothly and clearly. Everything was very straightforward and we felt instantly comfortable when we arrived.
I would definitely recommend this experience going forward!!
Thanks, Patricia, for a great stay!
The apartment is just as advertized and far more spacious than I had anticipated. We enjoyed having access to a kitchen with adequate counter space for preparing holiday meals and even managed to fit five adults for a portion of the visit with the use of her air mattress.
The location is wonderful; we found a grocery store, several restaurants, and general shopping within a short walk. The subway is nearby, but there are also a reasonably-priced car service within a few blocks that makes trips to out-of-the-way destinations more convenient.
What a great first experience with Airbnb! Patricia was responsive and incredibly easy to communicate with throughout the process. She was also great about accommodating our travel schedules, allowing us to leave our bags in her home until Sunday afternoon so that we could take the later flight out of NYC. Her apartment is just as amazing as it looks in the pictures (if not more so)! It was clean, spacious, tastefully decorated and completely up to date with all new appliances in the kitchen. The setup is great for entertaining (I'm obsessed with the table!), and the views of lower Manhattan are breathtaking (check out the view from the bedroom window). It is a walkup, but totally worth a few extra stairs for the view! The high ceilings and windows in the living room allow tons of natural light into the room, which I love. The king size bed is very comfortable, and a huge plus. We also felt very safe there since the front door to the building locks in the evening.
Now, on to the neighborhood... I have always preferred Brooklyn to Manhattan, but staying in Cobble Hill just sent my love over the top! On our first day there we decided to stay around the neighborhood and check out some of the local restaurants and bars, and we were beyond impressed! Patti's apartment is only a short walk from Atlantic Avenue, where we found a variety of watering holes serving local brews (we're from NC, we love craft beer) and reasonably priced food. There's also a great wine shop and corner market where you can pick up your necessities. We stopped for dinner at a small Italian place on Henry Street called Bocca Lupo, our meal was delicious and very reasonably priced. The tree-lined streets are well lit and we always felt safe walking. And if you do feel the need to venture into Manhattan, the Bergen Street subway station is just a few blocks away.
All in all, everything was amazing and I would highly recommend Patricia's place to anyone wanting to experience the best of Brooklyn. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!
Patricia is amazing! I needed a place for my mother and best friend to stay while they were in town visiting. Patricia was more than accommodating and let me view the apartment before we booked. She also worked with me to find a convenient time to do the key pickup/drop-off. Her apartment is beyond adorable and located in a safe and quiet residential area. My mother was able to stay in the huge king sized bed (which trust me, is a rare find in NYC) and my friend used the blow up mattress. They both had tons of space and this apartment beats an overpriced, cramped and boring hotel room any day of the week.
All in all, we are totally thrilled with our airbnb and experience and will definitely do it again.
Definitely five stars for Patricia. She was lovely to work with, making the key pick up work well and checking in that things were going smoothly for us. Her place is fabulous: spacious, light, high ceilinged and beautifully decorated - and very comfortable. We took her word that her dining table seated ten people and had family and friends over, ordering from one of the many nearby excellent restaurants. We'd certainly see if her space was available another time. Thanks, Patricia!
Patricia's apartment was fantastic. It was clean, well decorated, and comfortable, with lots of room. Its location in the Cobble Hill neighborhood was close to lots of shops, pubs, and restaurants. My son works nearby, so it was especially convenient.
Transit into Manhattan was quick and easy from the F train stop at Bergen Street.
I'd definitely stay there again if available.
Patricia's place was wonderful. I'd stay here again and I'd recommend anyone else to as well!
Her home is really comfortable and Patricia was extremely accommodating to me and my guests. The place was completely clean. And it's more charming/ homey/ comfortable than the pictures do justice.
The neighborhood is one of the best in Brooklyn and there's lots to do and see. The metro is near by as well -- easy to get downtown or Williamsburg.
Beautiful apartment, great location on a very quiet street. Seriously felt like moving in. :)
Would definitely stay here again.
Patricia's apartment is perfect!! It is spacious, clean, sunny, beautifully decorated, and in one of my favorite spots in Brooklyn. Close to everything and on a very cute tree-lined street.
Patricia made the whole process super smooth and I just hope I can stay there again!
Patricia was a great, responsive and helpful host!
