My boyfriend and I are both writers and both originally from the south. I love photography and running. He loves comic books. We both love to read and travel.
We really enjoyed staying at Noel's place, quite comfortable in the july heat! the location was perfect and she was a friendly host.
Noel seems to be a nice person although we didn't spend a lot of time with her as we were very busy visiting NYC. She didn't really question us or talk to us during our stay as well to be fair.
The major bad point is the lack of privacy. The room is said to be "private", but it's right above the kitchen/bathroom/livingroom! We thought we would have a bit of a privacy when we'll go to bed (usually past 11 pm so not very early), but half of the time they were still watching tv, or having a loud discussion in the morning at 8 am (which waked us up). The reason was that Noel's cousin was staying in the living room, and yet she didn't tell us before, otherwise we wouldn't have booked.
The location is good, very close to Manathan although at the time of the visit (september 2012), le L line didn't worked after 12 pm, so you'll have to stop one station ahead and have a good 30 min walk to the flat. The price seems a bit much for what it is but good deals run out very fast. NY was awesome though!
Noel and Austin were fantastic hosts. Their apartment is well located in Williamsburg, and it`s super cute. They are both very friendly, even their dog (once he gets to know you, that is). This was my first Airbnb experience, and I have to say it set the bar for everyone else!
My only regret is that we did not get to spend too much time getting to know them, but next time we are in town, we definitely will drop by!
See you soon, and please, if you are in Toronto, let me know!
Nice place to stay, the location was great. Noel is very friendly and uncomplicated.
Noel is a wonderful host! very kind, helpful, interesting, respectful and accommodating.
The location is excellent, It does have plenty to offer in terms of eating out and local shopping within walking distance, and has great access to the trains.
i couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!
I really like the location of the flat, the views from the room were great and I moved around NY really easy. Noel and her boyfriend were really friendly and help me with any doubt I had, even though we didn´t see each other so much because I was most all the time outside the apartment.
I know there are moving to another place, I´m sure will be good too.
The dog is really cute!!
Noel and Austin were very accommodating and kind, particularly understanding when I forgot my key.. They were helpful with directions and the everything was provided as advertised. Their dog is adorable!
Nice place to stay and the roof-deck is really great. Noel is very friendly and uncomplicated. Thank you very much
Accueil sympathique, canapé confortable, mais propreté de la salle de bains laissant beaucoup à désirer, chaleur étouffante dns la chambre à l'étage, et draps propres? serviette fournie propre
Noel was a great host and provided me with clean sheets, warm towels and a nice comfy bed! Their apartment is centrally located in Kips Bay with easy access to the subway and 6 train. There are also shops and restaurants nearby if you need anything in a pinch. When I come back to NYC, I'll be sure to check their page first!
